Her Grandma Gave Her A Cookbook From The '50s, And The Recipes In It Are Nuts

Her Grandma Gave Her A Cookbook From The ’50s, And The Recipes In It Are Nuts

We think we have it all figured out these days. We use our technology to help us find places that we’re unfamiliar with, we think our music is the best, and we feel that the foods we eat today are far superior to those eaten in the past. Well, this girl decided to test out that theory. She received a cookbook from the 1950s and wanted to try out some of the recipes. The results were so weird. Well, maybe we were right about the food thing. These recipes look peculiar to say the least (but I bet there’s some culinary gold in there). Read more: http://www.viralnova.com/old-recipes/

Neighbors Complained About Her House, So These People Did Something Awesome

Neighbors Complained About Her House, So These People Did Something Awesome

Many people think that they are helping the elderly by donating money to charities or volunteering at local food drives. While these are excellent displays of solidarity, more direct acts of kindness are usually the most effective. With that in mind, these people got their hands dirty when one of their neighbors needed help. A 90-year-old woman named Agnes turned to her neighbors when she found herself in a bad place. She was facing steep fines because her house was deemed “too dirty,” and she was told that the government would take action if she didn’t clean up. Luckily for Agnes, some kind people came to the rescue. (via Wimp) Who could possibly fine her now? Never underestimate the generosity of strangers! Kudos to these people for helping out a woman when she needed them most. Read more: http://www.viralnova.com/elderly/

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

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!

She Thought He Was Proposing To Her, But The Truth Was So Much Better

She Thought He Was Proposing To Her, But The Truth Was So Much Better

If you’ve ever caught a lover cheating on you, you how devastating it can be. You might do some really rash things like burn their stuff, key their car, or shut them out of your life completely. Well, that’s not what this man did. When he caught his girlfriend cheating on him, he didn’t just sit idly by and take it. He set up an elaborate prank that’s as genius as cheating is scummy. He lined his house with romantic candles and flower petals, and then set up gifts all around the bed. When it seemed like he was going to pop the question, he let her know that he knew she’d been cheating. (via Distractify) That had to be incredibly satisfying. A person getting their comeuppance is always great. It’s always awesome to see a person who did a crappy thing get a healthy dose of instant karma. I […]

This Blue Box Contains A Special Kind Of Medicine That Every Hospital Should Have

This Blue Box Contains A Special Kind Of Medicine That Every Hospital Should Have

Hospitals are largely depressing places. If you’re in one, most of the time it means that you’re injured, in poor health, or someone you know is spending time there for similar reasons. It’s safe to say that few people enjoy going to the hospital. So sometimes it’s necessary to brighten the mood a bit. These people have come up with a way to lift the spirits of the patients in one Canadian hospital. It’s hard to say goodbye to our furry friends just for the day, while we go off to work, so I can only imagine spending weeks or even months apart. What a wonderful way to bring a bit of joy to these hospital patients’ days. Hopefully this program keeps up and pets can be in all hospitals soon! Read more: http://www.viralnova.com/pet-medicine/

This Stranger's Act Of Kindness Has Changed A Homeless War Veteran's Life Forever

This Stranger’s Act Of Kindness Has Changed A Homeless War Veteran’s Life Forever

Max Zahir was at a gas station when a homeless man came up and asked him for change. Instead of change, however, Zahir gave him something so much more important. Zahir invited the homeless man, who turned out to be a war veteran, to hop in his car and get a meal with him. The vet was so grateful, but he never expected to hear what Zahir told him next. (via Huffington Post) This man’s selflessness cannot go unnoticed. Our war veterans deserve so much more than we give them, and all this guy wanted was some food and a friend. Thanks to Mr. Zahir, he got both of those things…and then some. After this video went viral, the homeless man was offered a home by an organization called Carry Me Productions, and he was even offered a job at a local restaurant. That’s so incredible!

If You Hate Cutting Onions, There’s A Cheap Trick That’ll Make This Food Prep Much Easier

While frustration alone can make you shed a tear when chopping onions, the actual reason you cry is due to the chemical irritant syn-propanethial-S-oxide. You probably have your own way of quelling the tears — putting the onion in the freezer, lighting a candle, etc. — but what about the annoyance of actually chopping them evenly? This little trick teaches you the best way to cut up an onion so you don’t have pieces all over your counter and floor…you’re about to become the onion-chopping king.

People Can Actually Test For Alzheimer’s Disease By Smelling This Food

For people who have family members with Alzheimer’s disease or those who are suffering from the disease themselves, the fact that there’s no cure is heartbreaking. It’s a difficult disease that affects nearly five million Americans, and it typically leads to loss of memory and death.

An amazing new discovery shows that people with Alzheimer’s disease have a difficult time smelling odors with their left nostrils. See the test in action in the video below.

He Poured Water, Oil, And Syrup Into A Glass For A Really Cool Science Experiment

If you know anything about science, you’ve probably heard the term density floating around before. You may not fully understand how it works, and to be completely honest, neither do I (that’s why I got into the writing business, I wasn’t too good when it came to the periodic table). Then again, if density had been explained with this experiment, which anyone can do in their own home, I might have been more interested. Grab some syrup, oil, and water and watch this video! Pretty neat, right? I think we all have a much clearer understanding of density now, right? No? Yeah, me either, but that experiment is cool regardless! Read more: http://www.viralnova.com/density/

These Puppies Were Abandoned And Living On The Streets Then They Were Saved

The mother of these stray puppies left them one day in search of food. Unfortunately for the pups, she never returned. The tiny pooches had to scavenge for food and try to survive on their own. Luckily, someone from the neighborhood stepped in and fed them for a few weeks and then called the good people at Hope For Paws. When they arrived to rescue the little guys, the puppies were harder to catch than anyone could have expected. What a happy ending! And what a difference a bath and a warm bed made in their disposition. Hopefully someone will adopt them and give them all a good home. Until then, they are clearly in good hands!

Doctors Didn’t Think This 2-Pound Baby Would Survive, But She Proved Them Wrong

Watching a child deal with medical complications is every parent’s worst nightmare. The most devastating conditions of all are the ones that children are born with. Not many little ones have to face that reality, but for those who do, life is made all the more difficult. Kenadie Jourdin-Bromley is a 12-year-old girl who was born with an extremely rare disease called primordial dwarfism, which results in stunted growth and vascular issues. Most people with primordial dwarfism don’t live past the age of 30, but that hasn’t stopped Kenadie from enjoying every second of her amazing life. Primordial dwarfism starts in the womb. Babies affected by the disease start experiencing stunted growth before they’re even born. YouTube / Barcroft TV When Kenadie was born, doctors didn’t expect her to survive very long outside of the hospital. Not only was she small in size, but she exhibited all the symptoms of […]

Guilty Dog Hilariously Tries To Hide A Sandwich In His Mouth Nice Try, Guy!

If you’ve ever owned a dog, you know and understand that sometimes they attempt to steal some of your food. If it’s in clear view, it’s pretty much fair game — at least in their opinion. The instant you look away from whatever you are eating, an opportunistic dog will pounce on that delicious human food. When Sabin saw his mom had made a tasty sandwich, his first thought was probably: “For me? You shouldn’t have!” Watch as she hilariously tracks down her lunch in the funniest place… If you think this is the only case of dogs squirreling food away in their mouths, think again!

When You See The Surprise That A Cop Had For These Kids, You'll Be So Jealous

When You See The Surprise That A Cop Had For These Kids, You’ll Be So Jealous

Kids are always told to put down their devices and play outside, but when they do, they’re often met with backlash. While sitting inside and scrolling through Twitter is a quiet activity, playing basketball is a decidedly noisy way to pass the time. That’s why people in this neighborhood called the cops on a few teens who were playing a pick-up game outside. They were just trying to have fun, but the neighbors weren’t having it. Luckily for the players, however, a guy named Officer White was on their side. Instead of coming down on them for playing ball, this officer joined them (since, you know, playing basketball isn’t a crime). He also vowed to come back and play again!

He Picked Up What He Thought Was An Ordinary Egg, But It Contained Something Weird

Picking up eggs that aren’t from a grocery store is usually frowned upon. Most animals are territorial about their eggs, and they may attack you if you touch them. Some will even leave their eggs behind if they detect your scent. For the sake of your health and the health of the unborn creatures, it’s probably best to keep your distance. Despite all of that, one man’s curiosity got the best of him. What he found inside of a small egg was something that he never expected to see. What a cool discovery! Even though these turtles can now lead safe, happy lives on their own, something tells me that they’ll always have a soft spot for each other. Read more: http://www.viralnova.com/turtle-egg/

Our differences make us unique — heck, if we all looked alike, the world would be a pretty boring place. I mean, I just wrote a piece about a two-headed snake! …Which brings us to Toby. The Australian shepherd has two noses and because of that abnormality, he was about to meet an unfortunate and early end. But luckily, a hero stepped in. Todd Ray decided to adopt Toby because he would much rather give the pup a happy life than see him put down simply because he looked different.

To Attract Customers, Chinese Restaurants Were Adding More Than MSG To Their Food

To Attract Customers, Chinese Restaurants Were Adding More Than MSG To Their Food

Nowadays, it seems restaurant owners and chefs will do just about anything to distinguish themselves from the establishment next door. And while that might normally mean offering a free drink if you check in on Foursquare, in China, it’s a bit more extreme than that… Recently, 35 popular Chinese restaurants were shut down for adding ground poppy powder to their dishes. While that might not sound like a big deal, what you don’t realize is that the powder is highly addictive and is used in the creation of opium, morphine, heroin, and codeine. The poppy powder they were using is extremely hard to detect when cooked correctly, which is why the restaurants had been getting away with it for so long. (via AnonHQ) Well, that’s one way to get people to keep coming back to your restaurant. Another way? COOK GOOD FOOD! Novel idea, I know. Read more: http://www.viralnova.com/chinese-food-msg/

To Capture Thailand's Vast Countryside, Google Did Something Truly Amazing

To Capture Thailand’s Vast Countryside, Google Did Something Truly Amazing

Much of Thailand’s greatest sites are off the beaten path, that is, not accessible via roads and cars. So, when Google Street View wanted to add more points of interest to their coverage of the country, there were very few options. Measuring in at nearly 200 square miles, it’s almost impossible to imagine seeing it all, but Google was determined to capture it. They enlisted people to visit these harder-to-reach areas with large backpacks holding numerous cameras. One man in particular is responsible for the majority of the coverage in Thailand. His name is Panupong Luangsa-ard and he’s a Thai triathlete. Google estimates that Luangsa-ard walked nearly 500 kilometers (that’s over 300 miles). Google Asia Pacific Naturally, he went through numerous pairs of shoes in the process. Luangsa-ard traveled to remote locations like ancient temples, tropical beaches, strawberry plantations, and rice terraces. Thanks to the dedication of Luangsa-ard and other […]

What Astronauts Heard On The Moon Is Incredibly Eerie -- Is This For Real?

What Astronauts Heard On The Moon Is Incredibly Eerie — Is This For Real?

Going to the moon is a goal for almost every astronaut, and in the late 1960s, humans accomplished that goal for the first time. It was a monumental technological breakthrough. Many people thought that we would never do it, but in the heat of the Cold War, America made it to the moon. On our journeys since, some irregularities have occurred. Take these sounds, for example. Bizarre noises were heard on the dark side of the moon, and as you’ll hear in the video below, they were absolutely chilling. (via Unexplained Mysteries) If that doesn’t give you the willies, I don’t know what will. I have to hand it to those brave astronauts for going up there. Space travel is clearly creepy.

Musk has been at the forefront of many business ventures that are designed to push the boundaries of what we thought was possible, but his next update to the motor-vehicle world will absolutely shock you.

When A Woman Is Addicted To Drugs, Something Terrible Happens To Her Newborn

When A Woman Is Addicted To Drugs, Something Terrible Happens To Her Newborn

When a woman is pregnant, it is important for her to eat healthily so that her baby comes out of the womb in great condition. A mother’s diet while pregnant directly affects the health of her baby. As such, when a woman puts terrible things in her body, it can be highly detrimental to her unborn child. Women who continue to drink alcohol, smoke cigarettes, and use drugs during their pregnancies can expect complications to arise. When this video was posted online, people got to see those disastrous effects for themselves. This baby’s mother used heroin throughout the duration of her pregnancy, so her baby became addicted in the womb. This disturbing footage captures what withdrawal symptoms are like for infants who suffer from Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (NAS). (via Reddit) This is a truly heartbreaking sight, and it should be a lesson to mothers everywhere. Don’t use drugs while you’re […]

When He Put A Heating Pad Under His Bird Feeder, He Was Shocked By Who Came To Visit

Seeing hummingbirds is an incredibly rare thing to happen, especially when it’s for a prolonged period of time. They are nomadic in nature and move quickly, never really allowing themselves any rest time, and they generally avoid humans. But when this family placed their bird feeder on a heating pad in the middle of an especially cold winter in Arizona, something strange happened. Hummingbirds started to flock there and then hang out! Check out these awesome videos and pictures taken by this family of their hummingbird friends. (via Wimp) Those little birdies look so happy!

What They Recorded Will Make You Think Twice About Driving Ever Again

Distracted driving is a huge problem in America, and despite our best efforts to combat it, the reckless behavior claims more lives every day. While not every instance ends in tragedy, there’s no excuse for risking your safety and the safety of others over a text.

Everyone knows that the key to losing weight is exercising and maintaining a good, healthy diet. While that knowledge is no secret, many people find it difficult to come up with a diet and exercise plan that works for them. It also doesn’t help that the foods that are bad for you taste so good!

Barilla The Starving Dog Made A Recovery That You Have To See To Believe

Barilla was admitted to a veterinary clinic not knowing if she’d live or die. She was starved so severely that doctors didn’t think she would make it.

These Friends Were Hanging Out By A River When They Noticed Something Strange

People always like to hang out by the river. Whether you like kayaking or fishing, spending time near the water is always a blast. With the right drinks and snacks, it’s easy to spend an entire day lounging around in nature. But these friends got a less entertaining surprise one day while they were minding their own business by the river. While they were trying to relax, they saw a cooler floating on the water.

I’m sure whoever was behind this prank planned it all in good fun, but that’s terrifying. I mean, even though it’s not a real kid, it’s still just as creepy. Dolls are the worst.
