The Broadway Cast Of Aladdin Sang A Tribute To Robin Williams. Get Some Tissues.

The world has yet to recover from the shock of Robin Williams’s death. Recently, it was announced by his wife, Susan Schneider, that the 63 year-old entertainer was in the early stages of Parkinson’s Disease. That sad fact makes his death even more tragic than it already was. So many were touched by his work and are still grieving over his loss. People are remembering his years of wonderful work in the most amazing ways. One that will bring you to tears in about 5 seconds flat is this special Broadway performance. The cast of Broadway’s “Aladdin” sang the song, “Friend Like Me,” in his honor last Tuesday night. James Monroe Iglehart, the actor who plays the Genie, led both the cast and the audience in song. YouTube / AP It might be tough getting through this without tearing up, you may want to grab some tissues: (H/T Elite Daily) If you’re anything […]

He Saw An Enemy And Shot Him. The Next Day, Something Heartbreaking Happened

The Battle of the Bulge was the last major offensive attack by German soldiers during World War II. The surprise attack caught Allied forces completely off guard and caused the Americans to suffer more casualties than they had in any other confrontation during the war. The tired soldiers in the battle could see the end of war in sight, but their jobs were far from over. While most modern history books note the key events of WWII, one thing that many fail to include are personal stories from those that experienced the war themselves. Joseph Robertson was an infantryman in the U.S. Army during the Battle of the Bulge, and years after his service, he could still recall one night when he was left with no choice but to shoot a young German boy. Below, listen to Robertson recall the events of that tragic night that he deemed the saddest […]

Adult Corgi Teaches His Little Puppy Friend How To Sit In The Cutest Way

The best way to teach someone how to do something is to show them exactly how it’s done. Zeus the corgi understands that all too well, which is why he took a very hands-on approach when it came to teaching his puppy friend how to sit properly. In case you don’t speak dog, this is how their conversation went: “No no no little guy, that’s not how you sit. Let me show you how it’s done. Chest up, bottom down, like so…” *Puts paw on butt.* “There, now you get treats!” The tiny legs of these two darlings push the cuteness off the charts! Read more:

Be Careful When Dousing Raw Fish With Lemon Juice…Things Can Get Pretty Intense

When working with raw meat and fish, it’s helpful to have a strong stomach. After all, the smell and feel of raw food can be a little unpleasant. On top of all that, things can get pretty freaky when knives are out in the open. But some strange culinary happenings are a cut above the rest. Take what can happen when you season fresh meat with salt, for example. We know that madness quickly ensues when frog legs and salt come together, but did you know that the same thing can happen when you flavor raw fish with lemon juice? In fact, that reaction might be even scarier. See for yourself in the bizarre video below. (source: Carmel S) The movement stopped as soon as the dead fish’s muscles used up all remaining motor neurons, but seeing it happen is still weird. I think I would just call it quits […]

Woman Uses Social Security Check To Do Something Incredible For The Homeless

Arnetta Griffin knows exactly how it feels to not have a place to call home. Over 10 years ago, the Kenosha, Wisconsin resident and her young children were evicted after she lost her job. Not being able to afford rent, Griffin and her kids found themselves on the streets, bouncing between homeless shelters. But through it all, Griffin was determined to get back on her feet, even making a promise to God that she’d pay it forward when she was able — and that opportunity came years later in 2017. When Griffin learned of a local homeless shelter closing that spring, she knew it was her chance to help those less fortunate. YouTube / TODAY’S TMJ4 That’s when she started using her social security checks to buy and serve food to the hungry from what she calls “God’s Kitchen of Kenosha.” YouTube / TODAY’S TMJ4 Griffin even goes out of […]

A Star Wars Fan (And Father) Decided To Wake Up His Son In The Most Epic Way

Rob Lopez is a huge Star Wars fan. So, naturally, his son Sebastian is, as well. (And he loves Darth Vader.) One of the joys parents get to experience is having fun with their children. That’s why Rob and his wife (but mainly Rob) decided to see how their son would react if Darth Vader woke him up in the morning. Likelihood of traumatizing their son: ~15% YouTube But, I don’t know what’s better…this dad’s costume, or how his son reacted!

Your Long Commute Saves You Money On Rent, But Is It Actually Killing You?

Unless you’re lucky enough to work from home like the ViralNova gang or live within walking distance from your place of employment, chances are you’re more than used to the daily commute. Whether you travel 15 minutes or nearly an hour to get to your job, anyone who’s commuted knows that getting there is the real battle. It doesn’t get any better when you have entire cities of people all trying to get to their respective jobs all at once (NYC, we’re looking at you). Battling the congested traffic and busy highways isn’t all bad. I mean, after all, commuting does allow you to earn a living wage that allows you to pay your bills and allow for spending money when your home is somewhere with a lower cost of living. But what you might not know is that your daily commute could be putting a damper on your health. […]

Behold, The Beautiful, Majestic Horse…Who Farts While It Naps

If you’ve ever met a bona fide horse person, you know that they think the world of the majestic creatures. To them, they aren’t just animals — they are partners, and horse people care very deeply for their equine friends. When a horse is mentioned, a starry-eyed look might wash across a horse lover’s face. They see these animals as infallible. But…they have to know that horses fart while they sleep, right? Seems too ridiculous to be true, I know. If you don’t believe me, though, just watch this video. I mean, I guess they’re still pretty majestic, but it just goes to show…no one is perfect! Read more:

When It’s Time For Dinner, These Fish Are Disturbingly Excited

If you’ve ever worked in the food industry, you know what it’s like when lunchtime hits and the entire restaurant is overrun with dead-eyed office workers brainlessly fighting for spots in line as if the food was going to run out. Well that same thing is pretty much captured here in this video of feeding time at a fish farming pond in China. Watch the ensuing brawl that happens when the fish handler drops off the feed on the water’s edge. I don’t know how exactly they’re eating the food — it just looks like they’re flailing around in hopes of getting to the front of the line. I hate to say it…but it’s a little too fishy for me.

There Are Plenty Of Bad Airline Stories Out There Now, But This One? Pure Cuteness

Most pilots become so tied up in their jobs that they never really get the opportunity to get to know their passengers a little. Understandably so, since they have a lot to focus on to ensure that passengers get from point A to point B safely. As is the case with almost every multi-million dollar business, customers and patrons are often nothing more than numbers or statistics. But Captain John Ritchie makes sure his passengers always feel special. Over the course of his 20-year career as a pilot for Southwest Airlines, Ritchie has been keeping close track of his passengers in hopes of one day celebrating a huge milestone. That day just arrived! It seemed like a pretty normal flight from Denver to Pittsburgh, until Ritchie came over the loudspeaker system to reveal that he would be celebrating his one-millionth passenger.

Call Me Crazy, But I Don’t Think You’re Supposed To Put These On Motorcycles

Imagine driving down the street, minding your own business, when all of a sudden out of the corner of your eye you spot a bear riding a motorcycle. It might sound crazy, but for these motorists, it’s just another day in Russia. While driving through the city of Syktyvkar, motorist Nicholas Pasynkov was caught off guard when he noticed two bikers driving down the road with a large brown bear riding in their sidecar. The bear appears to be living its best life as it waves to onlookers while speeding down the street. This is unlike any biker gang I’ve ever seen before! As it turns out, the bear is part of a traveling circus run by a motorcycle club. Check out the woodland creature as he prepares for his epic ride. (Via Daily Mail) Read more:

If You Drive Over These Rumble Strips On The Highway, Something Awesome Happens

Normally, when you drift to the curb of a highway, it’s bad news. You’re jolted back into the lane by the terrible vibrations and noise of the rumble strips. But just west of a small town in New Mexico, there’s a road that everyone looks forward to for just that same reason. While there are some pretty spectacular views, the grooves in the road are what people travel to it for. Spaced just the right amount apart, the rumble strips produce a song when you drive over them at the exact right speed. Hear it for yourself, and get ready to plan your next cross-country drive to the Land of Enchantment. What a wonderful surprise!

Rakuten acquires mobile commerce startup Curbside

Tokyo-headquartered Rakuten, Japan’s answer to Amazon, is acquiring the Silicon Valley mobile ordering and pickup startup Curbside, the companies announced today. Terms of the all-cash deal were not disclosed, but Curbside had previously raised between $40 million and $50 million from investors including CVS, Index Ventures, Sutter Hull Ventures, AME Cloud Ventures, Qualcomm Ventures, Chicago Ventures, and others. Founded in 2013 by former Apple engineers with backgrounds in location-based technology, Curbside was one of the early startups to capitalize on the idea that e-commerce’s expansion won’t entirely involve ship-to-home deliveries, but could also include the convenience of online ordering with a curbside pickup option at bricks-and-mortar retailers to speed things up. The company first launched its own mobile shopping app with a limited set of partners, including a shopping center in San Jose and a handful of San Francisco Bay area Target stores. The Target test wrapped up some time […]

Those Elephant Rides In Asia May Seem Fun, But They’re The Result Of Horrid Abuse

When travelling to other countries, many tourists enjoy participating in activities centered around exotic creatures. Wildlife attractions like dolphin swimming, tiger selfies, and elephant rides are marketed as fun, exciting, and harmless interactions between people and animals, but the dark truth behind them is unbelievably cruel and heartbreaking. Have you ever wondered why elephants let people ride on their backs? Well, here’s a hint. It’s not because they want to. From a very young age, babies are taken away from their mothers and put through torture to break their spirit. In the video below, people are using hidden nails in their hands to stab the elephants into submission. In order to be tamed, wild elephants in Asian countries like Thailand are confined to tiny spaces and are deprived of food and sleep, then poked, prodded, and stabbed. Fear of the pain is what eventually trains them to submit to human […]

Kayla Itsines Sweat app will rake in $77 million this year

In earlier years, fitness gurus would market their programs for getting in shape on VHS tapes and, later, DVDs. These days, it’s an app business. At Apple’s Worldwide Developer Conference this week in San Jose, the company brought in one of the fitness app industry’s superstars, Kayla Itsines, co-creator of the BBG (Bikini Body Guides) and the Sweat app — which will pull in $77 million USD this year — to lead a morning workout for around 200 conference attendees. For Apple, Kayla’s brand represents not only a good App Store success story, but also spreads the message of how its own products, like iPhone and Apple Watch, enable access to better health through their platforms. From e-books to apps Kayla’s fitness company was started several years ago by two personal trainers — herself and business partner Tobi Pearce. Both were using social media, including Instagram, to drive leads for their own PT […]

Meet The Bomb Pizza (It’s Possibly The Coolest Pizza In Existence)

Yes, this food is on fire. And it looks awesome. YouTube This is called The Bomb Pizza and it’s from The Place restaurant in Seoul. It might look just like a ball of dough that was caught on fire, but it’s actually a shell surrounding typical pizza toppings. After it’s lit on fire, the heat cooks the pizza toppings and melts the cheeses. You can eat it plain, or you can use any of the dipping sauces The Place provides. It might be worth traveling around the world just to eat this pizza. LOOK AT IT. Watch them serve up The Bomb…it’s totally hypnotizing. This one is red because it’s filled with gorgonzola and cranberries (and it’s perfect).

It Looks Like A Futuristic Sleep Chamber But Its Real Purpose Is Ruffling Feathers

Fans of the animated TV show “Futurama” will remember the presence of “suicide booths” throughout the series, offering users, among other choices, a “quick and painless” way to end their lives. Now a similar apparatus exists in the real world, and it’s bound to meet resistance in and out of the medical world. A few days after lawmakers in Victoria, Australia, voted to legalize euthanasia, doctor Philip Nitschke, dubbed the “Elon Musk of assisted suicide,” introduced a controversial machine that helps users commit suicide with the press of a button. The Sarco, developed by Nitschke’s organization, Exit International, is a pod-shaped chamber that comfortably fits one person inside. When users are ready to die, they press a button, which causes the chamber to “fill up with liquid nitrogen to bring the oxygen level down to about 5 percent.” Users lose consciousness within a minute. Once they’re dead, the capsule can […]

I Was Worried When He Dragged A Shark From The Water, But He Did Something Heroic

We’ve seen far too many people pull marine animals out of their ocean habitats to take pictures and videos of and with them. Often, this tragically ends with the creatures dying. A guy named Adam was recently filmed doing the same thing in Jensen Beach, Florida, but his motivation was far more kind. He was fishing with a couple of friends when he saw a blacktip shark struggling in the water, so he ran into the surf to help. The poor shark had a fishing hook in its mouth.

A Family Brought A Raccoon To An Animal Shelter, But Wait ‘Til You See Her…

You’re not alone if this is the first image that comes to mind when raccoons are mentioned. Sneaky little rascals… But as it turns out, not all of the feisty critters are quite so stealthy. Take this little lady who was brought in to an animal shelter in Seaforth, Nova Scotia, Canada. While her blonde hair and beautiful brown eyes might make you think fox or oversized cat, take a second look… She seems way too classy and dignified to make off with the cat food or go digging through garbage. But, raccoons will be raccoons.

Florida Volunteers Fined For Feeding The Homeless.

After an eventful afternoon in Manatee Park, Chico and Debbie Jimenez were banned for life and given a $746 citation by the Daytona Beach Police Department.

Someone Called Her ‘Just A Nurse,’ So She Told Them What Being A Nurse Is All About

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DTBT_ATF’); }); We all know how hard it is to be a doctor, but we don’t think enough about how much nurses do for us. All the soap opera-ish TV shows and accolades are bestowed upon doctors, while nurses often get the short end of the stick. But nurses are the first people we see when we arrive at the doctor’s office or hospital, and they often do the most personal work: asking what’s wrong, checking vitals, and taking blood. Caitlin Brassington ran into this attitude when an acquaintance at the grocery store said something that upset her. Later that day, Caitlin wrote: “‘Just a Nurse’. I am just home from a busy shift, looking very ordinary in my scrubs. On the way home today I stopped at the shop for milk and saw an acquaintance.

Muhammad Ali Was More Than Just A Boxer…He Was A Hero, Too

There are many wonderful — nay, great things we could say about the late Muhammad Ali. He was a boxer, a poet, a champion for those with Parkinson’s…but to many, he was also a hero. He famously spoke out against racism saying, “Hating people because of their color is wrong and it doesn’t matter which color does the hating, it’s just plain wrong.” Wikimedia Commons The boxer, nicknamed The Greatest, also famously refused to go to war in Vietnam. Citing religious reasons for not wanting to fight — Ali had converted to Islam when he was just 22 — the man spoke out saying, “Why should they ask me to put on a uniform and go 10,000 miles from home and drop bombs and bullets on [Vietnamese] people while [African Americans] in Louisville are treated like dogs.” Wikimedia Commons But what many people don’t realize is how much of an […]

When Your UFO Is Broken Down, There’s Only One Way To Travel

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DTAT_ATF’); }); If you’re a UFO lover like myself, then you’ve probably at one point or another considered the possibility that aliens are already here on Earth, living among us. While I wish I could say I have the answer to that quandry in this article, I do have a compelling piece of evidence…well, sort of. Earlier this month, the following video was uploaded to YouTube. In it, a flatbed truck is hauling something that looks a heck of a lot like a traditional flying saucer. Check it out for yourself below.
