Pamela Brun of Chesterfield, Virginia, had a stressful few hours when she lost her wedding rings on the same day her husband was having open heart surgery.

My friends, family and coworkers always make fun of me for my terrifying fear of birds. Just watch this video of a fucking eagle swooping in and attempting to snatch a toddler and then try and tell me that these flying dinosaurs aren’t full of pure evil.
Noooooo. Birds, especially large human-sized birds are my biggest fear. I’m suddenly very, very scared of Jennifer Lawrence. WTF, W magazine?!
Well, isn’t this quite a little riddle. When can a penguin — a bird that absolutely can’t normally fly — take to the sky? When it’s on a plane, silly. These two tuxedo-ed little guys were flying first class — naturally — from San Antonio to Atlanta. [YouTube]
I think about a lot of things when I get dressed in the morning. I consider the pros and cons of shapewear. I come up with brilliant comebacks that would have been useful 3 years ago. I realize that I kind of miss the Macarena dance. And the other day I found myself thinking, I wonder if Charles Darwin would like my outfit?

The dog severely injured the poor guy’s left wing, and the swan had to be rescued by firefighters in a boat, treated by a vet, and nursed back to health at a wildlife rescue center. The “cob,” which is the term for a male swan (females are known as “pens”), was then released, and the pair of swans swam toward each other and lovingly rubbed necks as if they had been apart for an eternity. This would be really sweet if a swan hadn’t bitten me (unprovoked!) when I was about four years old. [ShropshireStar] Keep reading »
