Footage of Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy saying black Americans were “better off as slaves”

April 24, 2014 | By Joey White | 1 comment

As the Bundy Ranch continues to battle the U.S. Bureau of Land Management over unpaid grazing fees on public lands, ranch owner Cliven Bundy has had no shortage of things to say about topics ranging from the role of the federal government to abortion.

In a recent impromptu statement that was initially reported by the New York Times and has now been released on video, Bundy offered his unsolicited views on “the Negro,” speculating whether black Americans were better off under slavery or living on government subsidies.

While Bundy has since defended accusations of racism by saying he was simply “wondering” which situation was better, his characterization of the quality of life a slave had versus the quality of life someone on government subsidies today has leaves no doubt which life he feels is better…

During a recent visit to a science expo in Tokyo, Obama got a chance to interact a bit with ASIMO, Honda’s bipedal robot. They had a brief conversation and the robot tried to engage the president in a game of pass, but only got minimal interest from him…

While commending the android’s skills, Obama later admitted he found its lifelikeness “a little scary.”

Pastor’s hilariously inappropriate question to ask yourself before talking about adopted kids

April 24, 2014 | By Joey White | No comments

Seattle area pastor Jesse Butterworth and his wife Marisa have three children — two biological and one adopted. Like many adoptive parents, they’ve heard numerous cringeworthy questions about their adopted child. So they came up with a funny and bizarre rule of thumb that you might not have expected to hear from a pastor, but it works surprisingly well.

Before you ask that question you have about an adoption, ask yourself this question…

Bug can’t get out from under styrofoam peanut (or maybe it’s exercising on an upside-down treadmill)

April 24, 2014 | By Abraham | 2 comments

A bug on its back appears to think that it needs to walk out from what it’s stuck under, but in fact it’s not walking at all, but endlessly rolling a piece of styrofoam around with its feet.

You might think that this is a long video of the same thing…but not compared to how long the bug did this. The uploader says it went on for over three hours.

Man returning from mosque gives fellow bus rider his shoes, walks home barefoot

April 24, 2014 | By Abraham | No comments

Last Saturday, as off-duty Vancouver transit operator Surjit Singh Virk was on his way home on the bus, he witnessed a moment of unadulterated human kindness. The story is now spreading across the internet since Virk was able to capture and share a couple photos of the inspiring interaction.

Sitting near him was a man wearing plastic hairnets on his feet instead of shoes…

Soon a man coming from prayer at a nearby mosque boarded the bus and sat by Virk. He saw the barefoot fellow commuter, removed his socks and shoes, and gave them to him. He said,

You can take these, don’t worry about me — I live close by and can walk.

He then hopped off the bus before he could be told either Thanks or No, thank you.
