ABOVE THE RAINFOREST — Sometimes things are very clear and straightforward. We may want to complicate it, but there is no need.

When the movie "Snakes on a Plane" came out, some of us wondered, "What is this movie?" What a dumb thing to wonder. It's very clear in the title. This is a movie about snakes on a plane, hence the title, "Snakes on a Plane."

That's how I felt about this video.

When I wrote the headline "Kid runs into sloth on zipline in Costa Rica," I think I covered it pretty well. But I can still explain it to you if you like.

In the video, a kid is ziplining in Costa Rica. He seems to be having fun but then, on the line, he finds a sloth just hanging out runs into it. So, as I mentioned in the headline, a kid runs into a sloth in Costa Rica.

The video mentions neither the child nor the sloth was hurt, so I guess that offers a bit more context. But at the end of the day, this is my "Snakes on a Plane" moment. The video is pretty clear-cut. So, enjoy it because it's pretty awesome.

And I have to hand it to this kid who stays calm and collected through the whole thing as he hangs above the canopy of the rainforest — and the sloth that seems to be saying, "Ah, no worries dude. All good. You good? Cool. Let me slowly get out of your way here."
