"It doesn't hurt at all," said Lauer, 55, of the rectal procedure, which took place behind a closed door at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York as cameras waited outside.

"Is it the best 34 seconds of your life? Probably not. But if in 34 seconds a [doctor] can detect something that might save your life, what are we talking about?"

The bewitching hour must be upon us! With October in full swing and Halloween fast approaching, there's never been a better time to embrace the spooky spirit of the season, and a marketing company behind the upcoming remake of Carrie did just that. Building a fake wall and employing a stuntman, viral video makers Thinkmodo treated customers at an N.Y.C. coffee shop to a shocking display of one woman's telekinesis. While the stunt was definitely startling, it's not the first to have us shaking (sometimes from laughter) in our boots. Try watching these without getting goosebumps – and a case of the giggles:

Miley Cyrus: 'I'm the Happiest I've Ever Been in My Whole Life'

Despite all the controversy surrounding her love of twerking, risqué VMA performance and feud with Sinéad O'Connor, Miley Cyrus says she's never been happier.

During an appearance on the Today show Monday, Cyrus, 20, told Matt Lauer, "I'm the happiest I've ever been in my whole life."

"The most important thing is being a really good person," the "Wrecking Ball" singer told Lauer when he asked about her the music video's nudity and VMA performance, which he deemed a "strategic hot mess." "And that doesn't depend on what you do on stage, that depends on how you treat people when you're off stage, and I know how I treat people."

She continued, "I don't ever really plan to offend people, but sometimes that just happens because ... they're not open to what they don't understand. But my fans understand. [The VMAs] went exactly as planned. I mean, it's a month later, and we're still talking about it ... so it worked."

British Tourist Hit By N.Y.C. Cab Thanks Strangers Who 'Saved My Life'

Originally posted 09/24/2013 10:00AM

Sian Green, a British tourist who five weeks ago was the victim of a New York City taxi cab accident in which one of her legs was severed, expressed her gratitude to those strangers who stepped forward, stayed with her and helped when the horrific incident occurred.

"There's good people in the world," the 23-year-old, just out of the hospital and smiling, said on Tuesday's Today show. "I can't thank them enough. They saved my life."

Green, a student of fashion-buying and trainee at Hugo Boss, had been in the city for only a day with pal Keshia Warren when a taxi swerved to avoid hitting a cyclist. The vehicle then jumped the curb and plowed into Green as she was eating a hot dog in Manhattan's Rockefeller Center.

"We came here thinking we're just going on holiday," she told the Today show's Matt Lauer, as Warren sat at her side, "and it's been like a whirlwind and it's turned upside down."
