Wife refuses to pose for maternity photos, husband hires photographer and takes her place

July 29, 2014 | 2 comments

If you really want pictures of the pure, sacred beauty of pregnancy but your wife isn’t game, what’s there for a man to do other than hire a photographer and pose for them himself?

That’s what this guy figured anyway…

African cocoa farmers taste chocolate for the first time. Now they understand white people…

July 29, 2014 | 14 comments

This video is almost as sweet as the food it’s about. It will make you feel spoiled by the simple luxuries we take for granted, but at the same time you’ll find it wonderfully uplifting (and funny).

Several farmers and laborers in Ivory Coast who grow and harvest the key ingredient in chocolate — cocoa beans — have never tasted the finished product. In fact, they’ve never even heard of it.

One farmer says…

To be honest I do not know what they make of my beans. I’ve heard they’re used as flavoring in cooking, but I’ve never seen it. I do not even know if it’s true.

When they get a chance to taste the fruit of their labors in this mini-documentary, they are more than a little surprised. The video as a whole is quite heartwarming, but what they have to say about white people and chocolate is downright hilarious…

When your child is scared at bedtime, calm her with pictures of monsters. Yes, for real…

If your kids are already scared of monsters under the bed, it’s probably not the best idea to show them pictures of said monsters. But what if they get to see those horrid creatures getting inspiringly destroyed by other kids?

Photographer and digital artist Laure Fauvel’s series “Terrors” features brave children fighting back against bedtime bad guys and winning…

Creationist says all aliens are going to hell, Neil deGrasse Tyson has 3 words for him

July 28, 2014 | 17 comments

In an article for his followers last week, creationist Ken Ham expressed his strong disbelief in the existence of aliens, since “The Bible…teaches that earth was specially created, that it is unique and the focus of God’s attention.”

He’s confident enough in their nonexistence that he believes looking for them is sin, because “the search for extraterrestrial life is really driven by man’s rebellion against God.”

BUT if aliens do exist, they’re screwed…

You see, the Bible makes it clear that Adam’s sin affected the whole universe. This means that any aliens would also be affected by Adam’s sin, but because they are not Adam’s descendants, they can’t have salvation. One day, the whole universe will be judged by fire…

So what does eminent astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson say in response to this hypothesis?

When LeBron James isn’t being a superstar on the court, he’s being a normal dad…sort of

July 26, 2014 | No comments

When LeBron James goes to watch his 4th grade son LeBron Jr. play, it goes a little differently than when most other parents watch their kids on the court. James needs a section of seating roped off so he’s not bothered by fans and he gets to talk to Kentucky Wildcats head coach John Calipari.

But other than those minor details, he’s just another dad excited for his son, shouting encouragement and coaching from the bench…

Kevin Selagea was riding his bicycle 30 MPH through Skokie, Illinois, when he passed a police officer. Turning around to look for the officer, Kevin realized that the man in the car behind him was just inches from his bumper.

Fortunately, the officer noticed the tailgater before Kevin did and was quick to step up for the bicyclist…

See if you can find the fatal flaw in this ad…

Before the World Cup, Singapore created a heartfelt PSA against gambling featuring a child whose dad threw away the child’s savings betting on soccer. Or did he?

John Oliver takes a look at what the ad actually said…
