Every oldest kid in a big family will relate to this boy’s despair at hearing mom’s having twins

Sep 30, 2014 By Abraham 3

When these three boys learn that their mom is not just pregnant, but pregnant with twins, their reactions are priceless. The youngest is delighted, the middle son doubts, and the oldest — poor kid — is absolutely despairing.

Could life be any worse than this? How could mom and dad do this?

But don’t worry. When you hear what his main concern about twins joining the family is, you won’t feel so bad for him. He’s going to be fine…

Correct quiz show answer is obvious. But all the wrong answers are better…

When this contestant was asked about the idiom “Guilt trip” on a recent episode of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire, he got it right. Because it’s a really easy question.

But it’s too bad that the other options are “wrong.” They’re all incredible and we should start using them. Because, really, who hasn’t been on a shamecation?

Unless you’ve already been the victim of a drone strike, you need to watch this

Sep 29, 2014 By Abraham 0

Drones have some silly, benign uses — like taking aerial wedding photos. But then there are the insanely efficient, deadly uses…

John Oliver looks at the United States’ use of drones and asks questions that it seems like there would be some pretty straightforward answers to. But there aren’t.

Then at the end of the segment, we get to hear from a couple people telling us what it’s like to live under the threat of drone attacks…

Prank video parody is a brilliant takedown of using cruel “pranks” as “social experiments”

Sep 26, 2014 By Abraham 0

Lately, a YouTuber named Sam Pepper has been taking major heat for a video he posted as “a social experiment.” The short version is that he sexually harassed women in a “prank” video and then said it was intended to raise awareness about sexual harassment. Yep.

Like most everybody else, YouTuber JusReign was skeptical of Pepper’s explanation and made this parody to get his point across.

A few weeks ago, Devon Still was cut from the Cincinnati Bengals’ lineup because he hadn’t been able to make it to practices. But his excuse could not have been better.

News reporters speak their minds, thinking they’re off the air. They’re not…

Sep 25, 2014 By Joey White 3

A technical glitch caused New York’s News 12 Bronx to remain live on air during what was supposed to be a commercial break yesterday. This wouldn’t be newsworthy except that anchor Matt Pieper and reporter Amy Yensi had a bizarre conversation about welfare that was broadcast across New York.

The two were about to report on the need for more school crossing guards, and Pieper was passing along instructions to Yensi from their producer when he went off-script…

(PG-13 language)

Here’s the text of the unfortunate exchange between the two…

Pieper: And Dave wants you to also mention that parents do their f**king jobs and walk their little kids to school on their own and not rely on everyone else kind of like people rely on government assistance for their entire lives. And bye Felicia. I actually added the part about government assistance but it’s true. I mean, how old are these kids?

Yensi: I think I qualify for government assistance (laughs)

Pieper: Just check that box, girl

Yensi: #EBT

Later that day, the station posted an apology to Facebook…

It seems as though the station has applied the ultimate penalty, as neither the anchor or reporter are listed as a member of the station’s news team.

“Girly things” are gut-wrenchingly powerful when paired with poignant military pictures

Sep 25, 2014 By Abraham 24

The Tumblr “Just Girly Things” is a site that posts pleasant, often romantic pictures with a few words on them that mention something that, according to the person posting, makes girls happy. It’s simple, benign, and, of course, sometimes a little bit cheesy and frivolous.

But an anonymous military man or woman discovered something about the site. When you take some of the posts at Just Girly Things and reimagine the words as describing images of war and other painful military photos, things get serious fast. [Update: These pairings of images are from Just War Things. Check it out for more.]

Heartbreakingly so.

When Devil Dogs, a Facebook page for Marines, posted these, dozens of readers responded, most of them simply to say that the powerful pairings left them speechless or brought them to tears…

Syrian woman risks her life to document life under ISIS with her hidden camera

Sep 24, 2014 By Joey White 0

National television station France 2 equipped a Syrian woman with a hidden camera under her niqab to document everyday life in the city of Raqqa, an ISIS-controlled city in northern Syria.

The resulting footage shows men and women carrying AK-47′s as if they’re everyday accessories. One man orders a woman to cover 100% of her face because “God loves women who are covered.” French women are seen talking with loved ones back home, reassuring them that they’re okay and defending their choice to move to Syria as jihadi brides.

The entire video opens a shocking window for Westerners into everyday life under the extreme rule of ISIS…
