Watch This Film By Oscar Winner Laurent Witz, Then Sign Up To Be An Organ Donor

Organ Donation
Donate Life!

The New York Organ Donor Network has launched a “Long Live New York” campaign to raise awareness and encourage others to sign up for organ donation. The campaign begins with this emotional short film, directed by Laurent Wintz, who won an Oscar for his short film “Mr. Hublot.” Ranking 49th out of 50 states, New York is definitely short on donors — and every other state could use more donors as well. Growing up, my dad always proudly told me that he was registered as an organ donor and that when I grew up, I should be too. When I got a bit older and a childhood friend died unexpectedly at 19, her organs were donated and over 50 lives were either saved or dramatically changed by her donation. It was nothing short of a miracle, and the only thing that made the sting of her death a little easier to handle.

Totally Boss News Anchor Quits Her Job On The Air To Pursue Pot Legalization

"F**k It, I Quit"

Charlo Greene of Alaskan local news station KTVA interrupted her own news report about the Alaska Cannabis Club to reveal that she was the owner of the club, and that she was quitting to focus on pushing for pot legalization — in the most dramatic way possible. There’s nothing like a “fuck it, I quit” live on the air to get jaws dropping (and inspire admiration in other worker bees who’ve dreamed of quitting in an equally classy manner). Greene told Alaska Dispatch that she created such a scene to draw attention to legalizing pot. Well, she definitely did that much. [Gawker]

Eat, Little Guy, Eat!

Animal abuse? The best day of this tiny hamster’s life? Hard to say! Either way, someone had the wherewithal to make a pile of itty-bitty, hamster-sized hot dogs and feed them to one lucky rodent, racing against the clock with Takeru Kobayashi, competitive eater and Guiness world record holder for the most hot dog noshed. On July 4th, 2014, Kobayashi set a new record by eating 113 bunless hot dogs in 10 minutes — but how does he hold up against this little guy? [YouTube]

Watch This Corgi Get A Massage

The Good Life

Being a corgi is stressful. Running around on those short legs, wondering what kind of kibble you’ll be fed, and being the internet’s favorite dog would stress anyone out. It’s a rough life, but as this blissed-out puppy would tell you, massages make it all better.

Cheetah
Best Friends Forever

After Ruuxa the cheetah cub was rejected by his mother, zookeepers at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park paired him up with Raina, a Rhodesian ridgeback puppy. Their friendship was set up as part of the zoo’s animal ambassador program, which creates unlikely bonds between different critters.  And it worked: the new buds are now over three months old and exploring new parts of the park together. They’re being raised alongside each other to create a special bond, with Raina helping Ruuxa feel relaxed in stressful settings. Some of their play fighting is training for Ruuxa to become part of the park’s Cheetah Run experience  — and it’s pretty darn cute.  [NBC]
