This Handy App Allows You To Get Free Wi-Fi Just About Anywhere — No, Seriously

As much as I’d love to deny it, the truth remains that we live in a technology-dependent society. No matter where I travel, the first thing on my to-do list before I get settled in is find the Wi-Fi password and connect all my devices to the internet. In most cases, hotels will provide that information to you, but what if you’re out and about without web access? googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCBP_ATF’); }); Unlimited access to a Wi-Fi connection is just one download away. With the WiFi Map app you can quickly find all the possible internet connections in your area. All it takes is a tap of your finger and you have access to all their Wi-Fi passwords, too. I had no idea something like this even existed! This app could prove incredibly useful. Will you be trying it soon? Read more: http://www.viralnova.com/wi-fi-hack/

It’s no secret that English is one of the most baffling languages out there. Sometimes it seems like there are more exceptions than rules, doesn’t it?

This Man Embraced The Excitement Of The Olympics With His Own Swimming Competition

This Man Embraced The Excitement Of The Olympics With His Own Swimming Competition

The Olympics have come to a close. Whether you paid close attention to them or not, you’re probably aware of how popular the swimming competitions were. The swimmers would emerge decked out in winter coats and proceed to a ridiculous warm-up of flailing their arms around. While all that was amusing, when they hit the water, it was 100 percent business. googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCBP_ATF’); }); Presumably not wanting the games to end, this guy came up with his own version of swimming — and it’s pretty ridiculous. He was so fluid with those turns…and in just inches of water! I can only assume that it was pretty muddy doing this. No thanks. Read more: http://www.viralnova.com/puddle-swimming/

If You Think All Meteorologists Look The Same…You Actually Might Not Be Wrong

One could argue that the most important segment of the morning news is the weather report. This report dictates what we wear, whether we ditch our bikes for the subway, and whether or not we lug around our umbrellas all day. Luckily for us, there are dedicated meteorologists out there who make it their mission to help us out in that regard. But have you ever noticed that these lovely ladies tend to look similar? These meteorologists decided to take that idea and run with it. One woman posted a link for a dress on Amazon on a private Facebook group for meteorologists nationwide, and they all decided to buy it.

This Dog Has Found A Clever Way To Never Need Humans For Entertainment Again

This Dog Has Found A Clever Way To Never Need Humans For Entertainment Again

For the most part, our pets rely on us for just about everything. They look to us for food, shelter, and, perhaps most importantly, affection. With that last one comes cuddling responsibilities, belly rubs, and of course, lots of games. This dog, however, has become quite independent. When Mojo’s parents stopped throwing the ball for him one day, he decided to take matters into his own paws and got pretty creative with his surroundings…just watch!

He Called A Random Man For A Job Reference And He Turned Out To Be The Best Person Ever

When an Australian radio host prank called a random stranger pretending that he needed a reference for a job interview, he certainly didn’t expect this. Hosts of the popular radio show “Hamish & Andy” love to play harmless pranks on complete strangers.

People that support him do so vehemently, while those who disagree with his ethics say that they’re questionable at best and un-American at worst. Despite what you think about The Donald, it’s hard to deny his skills when it comes to making headlines. His career is about as entertaining as it is lucrative.

I’ve failed a test or two in my day, but it’s never given my teachers cause for concern. That may not be the case for this guy’s kid, though. When professor E.J. Masicampo began teaching his moral psychology class, he introduced an ethical dilemma to his students. It went a little something like this: Which route out of two should a train choose? One track has a single person lying on it, and the other has five. googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCBP_ATF’); }); Thinking it would be interesting to test this out at home, he posed the same question to his two-year-old son, Nicholas.

This Doggy Duo Is Basically Everything That’s Right With The World

They say family and friends come in all shapes and sizes. You can’t really go into meeting someone expecting to make a lasting friendship with them. When the chemistry is right, things just magically click. This sort of instant connection can make for some pretty interesting pairs. And that doesn’t just go for humans. Doggy pals Blizzard and Lulu are proof that when it comes to friendship, it doesn’t matter what you look like. When Lulu first joined Blizzard and his human companions, the two made an instant connection.

15 Things That Actually Go On In Locker Rooms -- This Is Crazy (Not)

15 Things That Actually Go On In Locker Rooms — This Is Crazy (Not)

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DTBT_ATF’); }); When it comes to presidential election coverage, I typically try to avoid it at all costs by watching trashy reality shows with a bottle of wine. However, this presidential cycle has proven to be the gift that keeps on giving, so I decided to watch Sunday’s second presidential debate. Boy am I glad I did, because it was basically reality television — without the table flipping and drink throwing. During Sunday’s town-hall style debate, Donald Trump talked about the comments he made during a TV interview. He referenced sexually harassing women, but during the debate, he brushed his words off as nothing more than traditional “locker room talk.” Since Trump’s remarks have sparked controversy with a variety of male athletes, we here at ViralNova thought we’d look into the other kinds of things that go on in locker rooms. It’s quite shocking what we found out. […]

Trump Swears Clinton Talked More Than He Did, But Here’s What Was Really Going On

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DTBT_ATF’); }); According to CNN’s reports on speaking times during the second presidential debate, Donald Trump spoke for 40 minutes and Hillary Clinton spoke for 39. The #debate was nearly a draw, in terms of speaking times https://t.co/zgLdzPBBFm pic.twitter.com/XL1iGk38m4 — CNN (@CNN) October 10, 2016 Despite those numbers, Trump went on to say that Clinton was given more time to speak than he was and that it was “three against one,” Trump being the one and Clinton, Anderson Cooper, and Martha Raddatz being the three. It is difficult, however, to spin the web of debate corruption when the numbers just don’t add up. Although Mr. Trump is no stranger to stretching the truth, his perception of speaking times may have more to do with social conditioning and less to do with crafting a media spin. Although its findings are academia-centric, one Harvard study sheds light on what really […]

These 25 People Prove That It's Never Too Late To Succeed In Life

These 25 People Prove That It’s Never Too Late To Succeed In Life

As it stands today, it seems like if you’re not running a successful startup by age 27, you’re not where you’re supposed to be in life. And that’s a lot of pressure! Even if you’re not a millennial yourself, you probably feel the rising heat of expectation and the fear of stasis that have grown up alongside my generation. Even as I sit here, I feel like I should be running a business at 24. Logically, that feeling doesn’t make a ton of sense, but logic rarely contributes to how we feel about our respective places in the world. But you know who wasn’t running a company worth millions when she was in her twenties? Martha Stewart. You know who didn’t make it big until he was almost 40? The late, great Alan Rickman. Success is not linear. The prospect of it does not abandon you after your quarter-life crisis. […]
