What She Has Family Do On Christmas Is Making People Furious, But She Has A Point

Who cooks holiday meals in your family? Have you ever thought about how much it costs them? Cooking a large meal in general costs a bunch of money, but when you’re talking about providing food (and drinks!) for a large, extended family, the cost really starts to add up. Many say they do it anyway out of love, but for home cooks on a budget, this can be a major dent in their bank accounts. One solution is to ask everyone to pitch in and bring a dish, but Gemma Andrews says she tried that and her family members would conveniently “forget.” She never would have thought of it on her own, but her in-laws suggested she start charging people per plate to mitigate the cost. People online are furious about the decision, but it seems to work for her family! Gemma even delivers food to the family members who […]

Having Something Like This At Your Wedding Would Truly Make It A Magical Day.

Disney always releases interesting products for the sake of entertainment (and money, of course). So it’s no wonder they’re looking to cash in on girls who grew up singing along to every Ariel, Jasmine, and Belle song in the Disney catalog. And there’s no better way to do this than by finding a way into a $51 BILLION wedding industry in America. Disney recently unveiled a cake mapping technology with the ability to make your cake the envy of every person in the room. It will also make every eligible bachelor quiver with fear. We hope you both live happily ever after. Disney patented this technology in 2012, making the dreams of every girl possible. (via Buzzfeed) I don’t know if I would want to have a Disney wedding. I’m also aware that I wouldn’t have the final say as a groom. I suppose I could appreciate a Lion King cake if I […]

This Is How An American Tragedy Changed One Of Your Kids’ Favorite Disney Movies

Whether you were a child in the early 2000s or a parent taking your kid to the movies, chances are you’re familiar with the mischievous behaviors of Experiment 626. “Lilo and Stitch” was the feel-good Disney movie of 2002 and was a bonafide hit at the box office. But what you might not know about the film is that the ending might have looked a bit different had a major American tragedy not taken place. The horrific events of September 11, 2001 forced Disney to reframe the entire ending of the movie. While the film already contained stories of loneliness and the loss of loved ones, the final scenes of the movie also included a plane crash in a city with large buildings that was the result of a hijacking scenario. Disney eventually opted out of the original cut due to the sensitivity of the nation at that time and […]

Community Comes Together To Give A Triple Amputee Vet The Wedding Of His Dreams.

Marine Corporal Juan Dominguez lost both legs and his right arm in 2010 when he stepped on an IED during a tour of Afghanistan. This didn’t stop him from finding true love a few months later, when he met his girlfriend, Alexis. After proposing to Alexis in 2013, Dominguez’s hometown of Temecula, California came together and gave the couple a dream wedding. The community donated around $35,000 to the happy couple, paying for the food, venue, cake, photos, and a videographer to capture this beautiful moment on film. There were, however, a few things Dominguez insisted on giving Alexis himself: “They wanted to buy her the ring and her dress, but I wanted to take care of that myself,” Juan said. (Source: HooplaHa) It takes a special community like Temecula to brighten someone’s life. Juan and Alexis are lucky to have so much love in their lives.

You don’t have to be a huge fan of “Shark Tank” to know that Americans are obsessed with the next great invention.

21 Ridiculously Delicious Things You Can Make With Oreos

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DTBT_ATF’); }); Growing up, there were two types of people in my book: those that ate Oreos like normal cookies, and those who ate the cream filling first, and then the cookies. Belonging to the latter group, I remember that I ate my fair share of cream filling, but often threw the cookie pieces away. As an adult, I’ve come to discover that Oreos are more than just a cookie and can be the universal ingredient that can make ALL desserts that much better.

I’ve only gotten as close as watching videos of them, but even that is more than enough for me. It goes without saying that the dolls themselves are creepy, but there’s something incredibly unsettling about how the attendees refer to them as if they are real-life babies. You have to wonder if those people are a little crazy and actually believe it. But crazy doesn’t even begin to cover what happened at this doll show. I thought these events couldn’t get more disturbing, but I was very, very wrong. Get ready to witness some seriously strange behavior, folks. It’s not going to be pretty. The way they touch it and talk to it is so creepy. Not only is that really unnecessary, but now you’ve turned me off of dolls altogether. Sorry, future child — […]

These Kids Had Nowhere To Turn When Irma Hit. One Couple Did Something Amazing

Hurricane Irma devastated parts of Florida. One of the things people may not think about is how the damage and displacement affected foster children. Foster kids are loved and cared for, but for many their homes are already temporary. To then face the fear of losing that safe place is a terrible thing for a child to deal with.

This Is Maybe Not What You Want To See When You’re Waiting For Your Food

While most McDonald’s locations are known for their Big Macs or that lovable clown, Ronald McDonald, one Melbourne chain is now known online for its resident mice. Tiny rodents are the last things anyone wants to see scurrying across the floor of any restaurant, but that’s exactly what McDonald’s customer Todd Gilbey caught on camera while eating at his local Mickey D’s. After noticing mice darting through the kitchen, he didn’t run away. Instead, he threw some fries on the ground to lure the critters out of hiding.

Here’s How To Make Fairy Bread, The Simplest (And Weirdest) ‘Treat’ From Down Under

When it comes to Australia, they’re more known for their terrifying animals than they are their delectable cuisine — I mean, it is where Vegemite was invented… But when we heard about Fairy Bread, it gave us a whole new perspective on bad food. You see, Australia is large…it’s actually almost as big as the continental U.S. Because of that, there are certain desserts and dishes that have become part of the national fabric, appealing to every corner of the country.

Awesome Dad Uses Digital Effects To Bring His Son’s Wild Imagination To Life

Parents will go to some pretty large extremes to make sure their children’s wildest dreams come through, but what Daniel Hashimoto does for his son James is something straight out of a superhero movie. Hashimoto makes a living as a freelance visual effects artist who has worked for the likes of Dreamworks Animation, but where his artistry truly shines is when it involves his 4-year-old son James. Stemming from the kiddo’s love of games and his active imagination, Dad set out to turn his son’s thoughts and ideas into “Awesome Movie Kid,” a web series where James becomes a pint-sized action hero. Hashimoto films his son doing pretty average kid things like playing at the park before transforming these simple videos into big-budget productions. The magic happens when Hashimoto incorporates some movie drama in post-production by way of massive explosions and death-defying stunts. The film that started it all, “Action […]

Simon from the Wildlife Aid Foundation was called out late one evening to save an injured fox hiding in the bushes.

This 26-Foot-Long Squid Looks Like An Alien Invader From A Science Fiction Movie.

No, we’re not being invaded by aliens (yet), but this giant Mangapinna (Bigfin) squid sure looks like it could be from Mars. These squids are some of the creepiest creatures of the deep. These squids are a bit camera shy, and like to hang out in the deep ocean, which makes sightings pretty rare. However, the Shell Oil Company released a video last year from 2007 of one of it’s unmanned underwater rovers coming into contact with a Mangapinna squid. They found the squid in the Gulf of Mexico near one of the company’s oil rigs. Why hello there, Mr. Mangapinna squid. Just wait until you see how long its tentacles are. The Daily Mail Wow.

Dogs Don’t Judge Their Humans For Anything, Even Being Homeless. So Touching.

The population of homeless people in America is not shrinking, and it’s something most of us try to ignore. We turn a blind eye when we walk down the street and push it out of our minds so we don’t have to feel guilty or weird or unsettled by their unfortunate circumstance. But for many of the homeless fighting stay alive each day, they’re able to find hope through the unwavering love of their companions: dogs. Unlike us, these animals don’t care that their owners have fallen on such hard times. Many of their owners sacrifice having their own meals in order to make sure their best friends don’t go hungry.

They have also shared these sobering photos of the pets with their owners […]

Researchers Just Discovered This Alien-Like Fish In The Deepest Part Of The Sea

The final frontier on Earth is our vast and somewhat unexplored ocean’s depths. It’s a fairly well-established fact that we know more about the surfaces of the moon and Mars than we do about our oceans’ floors. While there are a number of reasons for this, it doesn’t take away from the amazing things that always seem to be discovered when humans venture to the depths. Take, for example, the latest life-form discovered living in the Mariana Trench (the deepest spot in Earth’s oceans).

Nightmares Feel Very Real When You See An Enormous Snake In A Restaurant Ceiling

There are very few people who really like snakes. Even if you know that most snakes are harmless, as a society, we fear them. One of the fears comes from the fact that snakes can slither into just about anything and set up shop, climbing up pipes and hiding in basement corners. In one restaurant, workers found an enormous python curled up in one of their ceiling tiles. As they attempted to remove the snake from the restaurant ceiling, bystanders filmed its incredible fall. A snake this large is likely someone’s escaped pet, but that doesn’t make it any less terrifying. Read More: They Were Filming An Iguana When This Craziness Happened…What The Hell? Yikes!

Being overweight isn’t healthy for anyone, but for animals, carrying just a few extra pounds can have serious effects on their well-being.
