Jan 14, 2015 By Abraham 0

Looking back from the vantage point of 2015, the way the editors of this 1946 college yearbook decided to describe all the women is surprising at best. It’s unimaginable that these types of captions would end up in a current yearbook, but if they did, it would be indefensible.

The 40′s were a different time, however, and today’s expectations don’t exactly fit. So, more than being offensive, these pics serve as a reminder of how far we’ve come…

Dec 31, 2014 By Abraham 6

When she got engaged last March, Shelby Swink couldn’t have been more excited. She immediately threw herself heart and soul into planning their November wedding.

Everything was all set weeks in advance. All that was left to do was be excited when her fiance dropped a bomb. Five days before the big day, he sat her down and told her didn’t love her anymore and that he didn’t want to spend the rest of his life with her.

Shelby was left in shock, of course.

After the flurry of phone calls required to cancel with guests and vendors, all that was left to do was hurt. But then a few friends suggested something they thought might be a helpful release.

Why not trash her dress?

Dec 18, 2014 By Abraham 2

During a timed competition on Brazil’s MasterChef, one of the cooks couldn’t open a container she needed for her recipe. Without it open — and fast — she would lose.
