Take a look at just a few in the 2015–16 President's Annual Report.

Brag about yourself
Uh oh, might be trouble. Sometimes the stars align, and the universe gives us a gift we didn't even know we wanted—like this mashup of a miracle run by an iguana escaping a den of snakes from BBC's Planet Earth II "narrated" by former Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch, recalling his famous "Beast Quake" run from 2011.
