Ever wonder what 45 million dollars sounds like? ~Stevi
I haven't; well, until now, that is. I would imagine it would sound like the tide coming in on a beach, the soft purr of a Lamborghini engine, and a lot - A LOT - of joyous screaming.

Apparently, it sounds more like a really, really expensive antique viola. However, the sound can't be beat. More on the story here, or catch a listen below:

This guy got a tattoo of WHAT?! ~Stevi
Tattoos represent a million different things to a million different people. Whether it's love, hope, faith, music, etc - people have been getting tattoos that represent something close to them for thousands of years.

Now when we look back on history, we study artists and recipients of tattoos as trail blazers, independant, even a little crazy.

I can't believe that future generations will look back to study our society, and see this guy:

I didn't believe it either. I mean, HOW does one get a 'fun trip' deducted? Or better yet, a scuba trip?

Check out the list of 6 craziest tax deductions (as well as how a guy got away with writing off a $50,000 trip!) here.

Makes me rethink that trip to Vegas I've been meaning to take...

Westboro Baptist Church pickets Lorde show - you'll never guess what happened! ~
In the wake of their founder and pastor Fred Phelp's death, Westboro Baptist Church showed up in New York to protest Lorde's concert - and Lorde, her fans, and her staff were ready for them. How did they fight back? With positivity and love, that's how. (Click here for more on the first time Lorde heard WBC was to picket her show.)

Fans held signs on opposite sides of the street from WBC, showing their condolences of their founder's passing, and wishes for them to find happiness.

This is truely a beautiful sight, and I love their message: "fight hate with love". If we could all be this well equipped.

Full story here.

Girl gets kicked out of gym for WHAT?! ~Stevi
This story has all the elements for a good healthy 'WTF'.

Meet: Tiffany. After a recent car accident, she couldn't wait to get back into the gym. She wanted to feel rejuvenated again, and before her accident, was a regular at her local weight house. 

Meet: Planet Fitness. They have a strict clothing policy.

So, what's the problem? The reason PF asked Tiffany to cover up her midriff and arms.

Details here.
