In terms of positive, emotional stories, it might be impossible to top this. Make-a-Wish Foundation hooked up Caleb Acosta, a 15-year-old from Apopka, Florida, with stage-four brain cancer with Richochet, the surfing dog, and took the two to the waves.

The statue, purchased at a local home goods store, was merely a gesture of goodwill; Stevenson isn’t religious. But Buddha’s blessing seemed to descend upon the dirty, drug-ridden neighborhood.

The Penis Sock ‘Harlem Shake’ Is The Last Trend The World Needs (NSFW)

Apparently, Baauer’s 2012/2013 hit “Harlem Shake” is still relevant, at least according to Gillz Ace, the YouTube user who uploaded the above video. I guess the original dance wasn’t saucy enough for Ace’s taste. The Australian guy, along with two of his male friends, decided to re-imagine the dance. The new version is dubbed “The […]
