Hope and happiness seem like priceless items, but not for some. For the people suffering with Alzheimer's Disease, your old and used Ipod could be a light in their life. Please think about donating when you upgrade, or simply tired of any music storage device; it could be the difference in someone's life.
Recently, Arnold Schwarzenegger went to a California gym (to promote health and wellness to children), undercover as a trainer (full story here).
Look at the video; the guy is clearly The Govenator. I'd like to think that I'm a pretty savvy an aware individual - I don't think this would have fooled me. Also, have you seen those prank or expose shows that put people in 'fat suits' and heavy makeup to try to fool the general public? If I saw a person heavily doused in makeup and walking around in an obvious costume of some sort on a non-Holloween day, I would gawk, too.
I think this way of experimentation is skewed; most people are smarter than that, right?
Ok, perhaps I'm missing something, however I can't quite wrap my common sense around the people who allow thousands of complete strangers make their life decisions.
I'll elaborate: while scrolling media sites, many times I will see a child/wife/boyfriend/etc holding signs saying something along the lines of 'if I get [x number of likes], you will cure my cancer/prove to my wife (husband, girlfriend, etc) that I'm as awesome as I say I am/prove that God exsists. Most recently, a couple surpassed this social media site craze and went straight for their own .com, setting up namemydaughter.com, where complete strangers could have a say in what they name their child. Note: THIS IS A CHILD'S NAME, NOT A FERRET, CAR OR HAIR ACCESSORY. A CHILD.
The outcome? Cthulhu is currently fast approaching first place.
--Cats need to stay indoors; no exceptions.
--Dogs should ONLY be let outdoors long enough to relieve themselves. If they don't go after a couple minutes, take them back inside, warm up their paws with your hands or a towel, then try again.
--Doggie coats and booties aren't just a fashion statement, they can be hugely important in keeping your animal warm; fur can only insulate so much and paw pads (along with ears and tails) are easily susceptible to frostbite.
--If you feel guilty about your pet missing out on their usual exercise regimen, there are plenty of ways for them to stay active indoors. Laser pointers, treat-dispensing toys, or tricks-for-treats are great ways to keep your animal busy (and warm) on bitter cold days.
A lot of talk about New Year's resolutions nowadays, and I wonder: do they ever work? Some people have really good ones, like 'eat better', work on more home projects', 'learn a new skill', or even 'learn a language'.
Perhaps I'm lazy, but these seem really hard to follow through on. I really haven't picked a solid resolution yet (other than eat well, feel well), but I feel as though a good resolution that is easy to finish in a year is something(s) that we do every day, we just need to do more of. Example: 'smile one more time every day', 'pay one person a compliment a day', 'pay myself a compliment a day', or 'do something silly or goofy once a day'. These things seem more plausable, and not only that, most benefit others and not only yourself. So perhaps this year, you'll smile more, make someone feel better about themselves, or skip up the driveway every day. 2014 is a fresh, blank canvas, paint something that will last.
The mayflies were out in full force over the past couple days. Now I've heard about these insects over the years, but have never experienced a mayfly swarm. I think I'm pretty happy about that.
Apparently the mayflies were so thick they...

Can a song be so horrible that it's actually awesome?
Well, if that is possible, here is an example: Alice Cooper's emotional ballad "You and Me" from 1977. I'm not sure we could think up a more hideous lyric than "we shared a bed, some...
