This Driver Gave a Cop a Friendly Reminder. Wait Till You See What the Officer Does…

Apr 2, 2015 By Scott Neumyer 0

The relationship between police and civilians has been in the news a lot this past year and it’s moments like you’ll see here that make it such a hot button issue.

According to the video’s description, an Uber driver witnessed a car trying to park without using a blinker at a green light. The car, which turned out to be an unmarked policeman’s vehicle, didn’t have reverse lights on either, so it’s likely he was double-parking without using his hazards.

The Uber driver casually pulled around and gestured “non-offensively” that the car’s driver should use his blinker in that situation. Unfortunately for the Uber driver, the police officer didn’t take kindly to the gesture, followed him, pulled him over, and then this ensued. Thankfully, the driver’s passengers were smart enough to record…

The officer’s actions are under a “formal investigation,” but his behavior here is unacceptable in any profession, let alone one that’s designed to serve and protect.

In a time when high school sports hazing scandals have been making headlines around the country, it’s always nice to see a show of true sportsmanship that goes above and beyond what you might expect from kids that young.

In the below video, you’ll get a chance to see exactly what we’re talking about when two selfless high schoolers from Vanguard College Prep in Waco, Texas decided to give their opponents, the Gainesville Tornadoes, something special to play for.

Black Guy Stuns Strangers When He Asks Them to Translate a Racist Facebook Message He Got

Mar 17, 2015 By Abraham 0

Over the course of several hours, one at a time, we see several actors come in to await their audition for a commercial. Little do they know, they are playing their part just by sitting there.

In the lounge area with them is a Black man who, as he says, has only been in Lithuania for two weeks. Because he doesn’t yet know the language, he asks for help translating a Facebook comment.

It is a despicable message.

How the aspiring actors respond to the man’s difficult request is both fascinating and touching…

Winter Is Making People Crazy in Boston. But This Guy Has a Solution…

Feb 25, 2015 By Abraham 0

Back in 2005, Boston legalized “parking space saving.”

What is parking space saving? Exactly what it sounds like. When there’s a snowstorm, if you shovel out a place to park, you are allowed to put your garbage can in the spot when you’re not using it so that there’s a place for you when you come back…

How Is the Swimsuit Issue Still a Thing in this Day and Age with All Its…Possibilities

Feb 17, 2015 By Abraham 0

The Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue began in an era not exactly known for its progressive and positive views on women, and yet it continues. But even putting sexism aside for a moment, the success and even existence of Sports Illustrated’s February issue makes no sense.

Practically speaking, why are people buying this magazine in such huge numbers? There’s a ridiculous amount of competition even just among other printed publications. And then there’s the internet. (I think there might be people wearing swimsuits on the internet.)

But still the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue thrives. Strange.

Last Week Tonight with John Oliver explores this peculiar phenomenon…

It’s Almost Unbelievable How Callous This Doctor Is About Other People’s Kids Dying

Feb 3, 2015 By Abraham 0

The Jacksons’ daughter has leukemia which has ruined her measles immunity, and their son is too young to be immunized. So they are, in a sense, at the mercy of their community when it comes to contracting or not contracting the infection.

Now, after a trip to Disneyland and having indirect contact with a family who doesn’t vaccinate, their son is showing signs of the disease. And there’s nothing they can do but wait and hope.

Their story is sad enough told just like that. But to add salt to the wound, let’s see what the anti-vax doctor interviewed for this segment has to say…

His remarks (which begin about 2 minutes in) are clearly edited, so it’s possible he’s not as terrible as he comes across. Let’s hope so anyway, because how could anyone — and a doctor, no less — show such blatant disregard for the lives of other people?
