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.

Caleb was diagnosed in the summer of 2013, and is an absolute trooper in dealing with the unfortunate hand he has been dealt. He saw Richochet in ESPN The Magazine, and told Make-a-Wish that his dream was to surf with the aquatic pooch.

To whomever chose the song to pair with this video, thanks a lot. Now I have trails of salty water through my beard. No idea how that happened…

When one door closes, another opens. Every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end. Despite that being what I’ve learned about life opportunities, I’m having trouble looking on the bright side of Russell Westbrook’s newly broken hand. When a particularly tricky brand of broken foot put Kevin Durant out of commission a few weeks ago, a […]

We All Have A Gift: How To Cultivate The Genius Inside You

When Mozart was 14, he transcribed a coral setting of Psalm 50 composed in the early 1600s. A feat worth mentioning not only for his youth, but because this piece in particular was previously never written down. It was forbidden to transcribe, and it was allowed to be performed only at particular services; meaning, after […]

College Kid Who Has Never Played Basketball Hits 4 Shots To Win $10K

A 23-year-old Bryan College student, Gustavo Angel Tamayo, says he’s never played basketball before. I don’t believe him. During a school function, he was selected for a chance to win $10,000 in tuition money. He just had to hit four shots in 30 seconds: one layup, a free throw, a 3-pointer and of course, the […]

Woman Takes 50 CVS Homeopathic Sleeping Pills To Prove They’re Fake (Video)

The word homeopathic may sound healthy, but what it really seems to mean when attached to a drug is that the product doesn’t contain any real medicine. Homeopathic drugs are diluted to the point where the active ingredient is not strong enough to have the desired effect. There is an unproven theory that dilution makes […]
