A North Carolina Bigfoot spotting group claims its members came face-to-face with the mythical beast in McDowell County on August 4.

John Bruner shared his encounter in the Facebook group for the organization “Bigfoot 911,” a “small but dedicated group of investigators” who look into reported Bigfoot sightings in Western North Carolina.

via GIPHY

Bruner says he and a team of seven people were investigating a report at around 11 p.m., scattering glow sticks in the woods (the group believes glow sticks pique Bigfoot’s curiosity) when they observed one of the glow sticks moving, according to the News & Observer.

“I turned on my headlamp and saw a large bi-pedal animal covered in hair,” Bruner wrote on Facebook. “It’s face was solid black no hair on it, the hair looked shaggy all over.”

via GIPHY

Upon spotting the humans, the hairy, two-legged creature quickly took off, but Bruner says he ran after it.

via GIPHY

When he caught up to the alleged Bigfoot, Bruner says he and the beast had a brief stare-down.

“I knew it was my chance to see it up close,” he said. “I didn’t appear aggressive. We had eye contact for 5 to 10 seconds.”

via GIPHY

Eventually, Bruner claims the animal disappeared into the night, allegedly throwing rocks at the investigators as it fled.

Woman Live-Tweets Two Strangers On A Plane Flirting And It Quickly Went Viral

Who knew that changing up your seat on an airplane could lead someone to the love of their life. Good thing we have Twitter to document how the whole thing went down. Rosey Blair was boarding her plane with her boyfriend but the two didn’t have seats together.

She asked a woman to switch spots with her so the two could sit together. The woman obliged and little did she know, that would be her best decision of the day. Once the switch happened, the woman sat next to her new seatmate who the internet would dub, #PlaneBae.

Take a look at how it all went down from Rosey’s perspective.

After all this went down, we all found out who the guy actually was. USA Today did some real investigative reporting and found out that he was Euan Holden, a former soccer player who spent time in two lower-level European leagues.

Once he figured out he had gone viral without knowing, he had a good laugh too.

The Today Show even had Holden on their program and he said that, “From the moment we kind of buckled our seat belts until we touched down on the ground, the conversation sort of took off.”

The two are planning on connecting again Holden said, so it looks like love on a plane can happen for anyone!

This Man Has Saved Over 2 Million Lives After Giving Blood For The Last Six Decades

Back in 1951, James Harrison had to be hospitalized for three months and had one of his lungs removed which took several hours. He was only 14 at the time, but Harrison never forgot the experience. During the procedure he lost a lot of blood and basically only survived because of the large quantity of transfused blood he had gotten.

Once Harrison was healthy, he wanted to give blood to give back like people did to save his life. He would have to wait 4 years because in Australia blood donors must be 18 years old.

But when he turned 18, he began his lifelong gift of giving blood to the Australian Red Cross Blood Service. He didn’t like needles but he got through the pain to give. He then found out that his blood could be the solution doctors had been looking for. Harrison told CNN:

“In Australia, up until about 1967, there were literally thousands of babies dying each year, doctors didn’t know why, and it was awful. Women were having numerous miscarriages and babies were being born with brain damage.”

The babies were suffering from hemolytic disease of the newborn, or HDN. The disease basically makes the mother and the fetus reject each other’s blood cells. Doctors then figured they could stop the HDN from happening if the mother’s blood was injected with donated plasma from a rare antibody. Guess who the donor was that had that? Yep, James Harrison.

Image credits – 9news

Harrison didn’t think twice when doctors approached him to give even more blood which would later be named the Anti-D Program.

Harrison talked to the Sydney Morning Herald and said:

“They asked me to be a guinea pig, and I’ve been donating ever since.”

Image credits – 9news

Once he began in 1967, he didn’t stop giving blood till just recently. 17 percent of pregnant women in Australia require the Anti-D injections, so if you do the math Harrison has saved the lives of 2.4 million babies.

Robyn Barlow is the program coordinator and she is the one who initially found James Harrison. She said:

“Every ampul of Anti-D ever made in Australia has James in it. He has saved millions of babies. I cry just thinking about it.”

Image credits – 9news

Harrison even saved his daughter through the procedure and she posted on Facebook last month:

“To say I am proud of James (my dad) is an understatement. Thanks to dad I then gave birth to another healthy boy in 1995. … Thank you dad for giving me the chance to have two healthy children — your grandchildren. XXX”

He’s even been on the cover of the Yellowpages in 2013, so Harrison is kinda a bid deal.

Now 81, doctors are having to stop him because they fear for his health if he continues to give blood. He’s already past the age limit. When asked about his amazing record, he concluded with:

“I hope it’s a record that somebody breaks, because it will mean they are dedicated to the cause.”

Cheers to you James Harrison!

Employee Tells Her Manager She Can’t Come To Work Since Her Son Is On Life Support And Their Response Is Unbelievable

When Crystal Reynolds Fisher texted her manager she wasn’t going to be able to make it into work, she didn’t think anything bad would happen from it. She especially didn’t think the reason she wasn’t able to attend work would be in question.

Fisher’s 18-year-son was rushed to the hospital after he became ill, to the point of having to be put on life-support. She had to stay at the hospital while her son stayed in another room.

She told WWMT what happened:

“They wouldn’t let me in the room. I didn’t know what was going on, how my son was or nothing. Finally, a doctor came out and said they had to put him on life-support.”

Image Via Facebook

So she texted her manager at the PS Food Mart in Albion, Michigan. she wouldn’t be able to come into work due to the dire situation she was in.

Let’s take a second and think what her manager’s response might be. Check your pulse real quick, make sure you are a breathing human. Okay you did that? Now think if someone contacted you with this news of their son. You might have an initial response in your head right? Okay now lets see if you have a similar response to the manager.

Image Via Facebook

“That isn’t how we do things, so I’ll accept that you’re quitting.”

via GIPHY

That was my reaction, and I have a feeling that you had the same one my fellow human. It’s like she is talking to a two-year old about putting the dishes in the oven to clean them. It’s safe to say when Fisher posted this on Facebook it went properly viral.

Their conversation continued and Dawn replied:

Image Via Facebook

This supposed real person named Dawn, called someone being on life support as “drama.” Fisher said she was going to contact corporate and Dawn was ever so helpful by giving her the number…

Image Via Facebook

Here’s what she posted on Facebook:

People were just as outraged as she was calling the manager a few different choice words. Some commented included:

“Fuming reading this how rude. Where’s the compassion, heartless b****”

“I’m hoping the best for you and family! So amazed you kept your cool while dealing with such a heartless soul!”

“This happens way too often, same thing happened to me when my dad was on life support. People need to get a grip, family comes first… always!”

Good thing karma prevailed in this story, because PS Food Mart responded quickly and made sure the problem was rectified fast.

Their post read:

“We investigated and have found that the situation was handled improperly and without the compassion that we value as a company. For that, we are very sorry.

As a result of this finding, we took quick action and that manager is no longer employed by PS Food Mart. We have also reaffirmed to our employee that she will be able to take all the time off that she needs during this difficult period.”

According to WWMT, Fisher only had one thing to say to her former boss:

“I pray for you, I pray for you. That’s all I can say.”

And we are doing the same for you and your family!

After Being Lost In A Flooded Cave For 9 Days, Missing Boys And Their Coach Are Found Alive

Normally when you go on vacation you take the warnings of the locals in consideration. If someone warns you about the water and not to drink it you listen, but what about the non-drinking water? That’s what this coach and his boys encountered when they went on a float trip.

SEE ALSO: Video Shows People Intentionally Throwing Rocks At Seals So They Are Forced To Jump Off A Cliff
The boys who are in between the ages of 11 and 16 were found with their coach who is 25 years old recently after being trapped in a cave that had flooded. Thai Navy SEAL divers conducted a diligent search for the group after finding their bicycles by the entrance to the cave.

Image Via FACEBOOK/EKATOL

Even though there were signs at that entrance, the coach and boys proceeded into the potentially deadly flooding caves. Eventually rescuers found their shoes ands bags inside the cave but still no actual survivors.

A statement was issued by Senior Thai government officials, saying that time was running out for the group and they weren’t sure if they would find them in time.

Water levels kept rising as divers continued to look. The original entrance became completely flooded so they had to figure another way into the cave.

Sgt Kresada Wanaphum from the Thai army said in a statement that, “Water is the biggest challenge. There is a lot of debris and sand that gets stuck while pumping.”

SEE ALSO: The Mystery Behind These Tiny Hand Prints Discovered In An Ancient Cave May Have Finally Been Solved

The cave, Tham Luang, is Thailand’s fourth longest cave so there are multiple entrances but it was difficult to even locate them with overgrown brush all over.

Joshua Morris who helps take people through climbing tours all over Thailand said this to the BBC:

“What flooded is a narrow passage about 2km (1.4 miles) into the cave. If the kids are on the other side of that, they might be in a higher chamber which is still dry.

Being trapped in a cave like this is probably one of the most horrific things one could experience.

Diving in a cave like this is very dangerous. The water is moving, it’s muddy and there is almost no visibility. That means the children – if found alive – might have be supplied for longer time until the water can be brought back down.”

Image Via BBC

Over 1,000 people including army, navy, local administrative workers and volunteers helped in the search along with three British divers and US military. Just think if the coach would have followed the signs directions, none of this would have happened.

Before the rescue was over with, friends and family members set up camp outside the entrance to perform traditional Thai rituals. They even left out food and flowers to guide the boys back out safely.

Thankfully all 12 boys and the coach had signs of life when rescuers found them.

This Woman Documented The Worst Year Of Her Life By Taking 1 Selfie Every Day

This article originally appeared and was published on AOL.com

Although domestic violence and abuse can happen to anyone, regardless of gender, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, income or other factors, Safehorizon.com reports that as many as 1 in 4 women will experience domestic violence during her lifetime.

To raise awareness, a Serbian ad agency created a PSA back in 2013 called “One photo a day in the worst year of my life.”

In the short yet poignant clip, a woman takes a selfie every day for a year to document the physical effect of the abuse she endures.

Though the woman looks fine at first, as time goes on, severe bruises appear on her face and neck. At the end, she holds a sign that reads “Help me, I don’t know if i will be here tomorrow” in Serbian.

It should be noted that the woman in the video, which amassed more than 56 million views after being shared on Reddit, named Noah Kalina, is not, herself, a victim of abuse — make-up was used to make the bruises on her face.

Still, makeup or not, the video’s message rings loud and clear: Domestic abuse is an epidemic that we cannot afford to sweep under the rug any longer.

Woman Loses Over 150 Pounds By Doing The Same Workout Everyday And There Isn’t Any Running Involved

Losing weight can be difficult and oftentimes just to hard to begin. Every January you might have the goal to go to the gym more, but as we sit here in June, have you achieved that goal?

Someone who is crushing their goals for more than just six months, is 22 year old, Laura Micetich. She weighed over 300 lbs and had a few health issues such as high blood pressure and prediabetes. She knew she needed to make a change whether it was surgery or other options.

She wrote on her website:

“I decided to take charge of my life and make a change. After trying and failing to get a handle on my health numerous times, my weight had become a serious enough concern that I was considering weight loss surgery.”

This is what she looked like as she pondered that.

She went to a gym one last time though because she thought surgery would be her only option. She got bit bite the gym bug though, because she quickly fell in love with it.

She continued onto say:

“What initially began because of consideration for weight loss surgery quickly grew into an intense love of health, fitness and nutrition.”

Image Via Iron Giantess

And that’s when she realized:

“I started by going to the gym, lifting weights and eating a clean diet tailored to my body’s needs. It only took a few weeks for me to realize that I didn’t need to go under the knife. I needed to get under the bar.”

Image Via Iron Giantess

And that’s when she began to seriously hit the gym hard. In her first year of lifting weights and such, she lost more than 100 lbs! All she had to do was change some eating habits and lift heavy things!

Image Via Iron Giantess

The transformation is more than inspiring! She looks like a completely different person!

Image Via Iron Giantess

She went onto say:

“I just adjusted my diet. I ate lots of clean foods and removed all starches and processed sugars. I stopped eating out. I stopped getting takeout. I stopped buying junk at the grocery store. I stopped having alcoholic drinks with friends. I stopped binging on crap. That was it.”

Image Via Iron Giantess

Now, Laura is crushing in the gym and on Instagram with over 331,000 followers!

Image Via Iron Giantess

I’ll let her conclude this with some beautiful words of wisdom. She wrote on one of her recent Instagram captions:

“Step 1: Fall madly, haphazardly, unapologetically in love with your life. Cherish the big moments, the sunsets, the good songs. Travel to places of your choice, take job opportunities of your choice, go to concerts and games of your choice, have nights out with friends of your choice.
Step 2. Let only those things, experiences, and people that ADD value to your life become part of it.
Repeat steps 1 and 2.
If it doesn’t add to your life, it doesn’t belong in your life.”

Keep crushing it Laura!

A Journalist Compiled A List Of All The Words Ivanka Trump Has Used Incorrectly

This article originally appeared and was published on AOL.com

A journalist is going viral for picking apart Ivanka Trump’s word usage.

Eve Peyser, a political journalist for VICE, compiled a list of words the first daughter has misused in past social media posts and press interviews, and she is inspiring others to do the same.

Peyser got the ball rolling Tuesday when she first posted an image of an article in which Trump incorrectly uses the terms “relative” and “albeit.”

Trump was saying here that she likes to keep her schedule on a “relative basis” because of her husband’s hectic schedule.

And “albeit,” being a conjunction, also confused some readers about the sentence, who suggested “although” should’ve been used instead to make the sentence more understandable.

Peyser also pointed out Trump’s use of the word “otherwise”:

The word, “complicit”:

Teacher’s Last Wishes Were To Bring Backpacks Of School Supplies Instead Of Flowers To Her Funeral

Teachers are some of the finest people in our society. They don’t make near the amount of money they should, have to deal with children and have to work long hard hours. They have to do all of this with a huge smile on their face and shape the next generation the best they can.

Tammy Waddell was an example of one of those selfless teachers that everyone loved and needed in their lives. Waddell had been a teacher for 30 years until recently passing away from cancer at the age of 58.

But even after death, she was a teacher first and everything else second. In lieu of flowers at her funeral, her last wishes was to have everyone bring book bags filled with school supplies. Her cousin tweeted this photo out, and it went viral as it should have.

He also said that, “She had about 100 teachers as honorary pallbearers who carried the backpacks out and back to their schools. It was heartwarming.”

He then showed some of those honorary pallbearers who had worked with Tammy at some point in her career. It was simply beautiful.

Tammy’s obituary detailed her excellence further:

“Tammy served the children and community of Forsyth County for thirty years as a paraprofessional and elementary teacher in Forsyth County Schools.

She had a passion for literacy and believed that every child deserved an opportunity to learn.

She was a National Board Certified Teacher and in 2003 was recognized as the Forsyth County Schools Elementary Teacher of the Year.

She left a legacy in the hallways of Sawnee Elementary & Primary Schools, Cumming Elementary School and Haw Creek Elementary School.

Those around her recognized Tammy by her generosity, selflessness and unconditional love. Though her achievements and accolades are numerous, none are greater than the many lives that she changed over the course of her three decades in education.”

After the tweet went viral, Dr. Johnson has been receiving an outpour of support. He told Babble that, “There has been an outpouring of support for her last request with backpacks being sent from as far as the U.K.”

Image Via Brad Johnson

Tammy’s guestbook has been receiving all the love too. People have been writing in to talk about how inspired they have been by the story.

“Thank you for your tired less love and commitment to our children. Your kindness and generosity has touched all of us. – Jeanette”

“Ms. Waddell was my daughter’s (Katelyn) 5th grade teacher during the 2016-2017 school year. We are so sorry to hear of her battle with cancer and her ultimate passing. She will truly be missed. We were so happy to hear of her desire for backpacks. What a great way to help out the community while remaining a ‘teacher until the end’. – Julie”

“In loving memory of a wonderful person. We will love you and miss you always.You were the best 5th grade teacher. – Anonymous”

If you feel inspired by this story, you can do one of the following. You can look at donorchoose.org where you can find teachers to support. In addition, Dr. Johnson tweeted out an address where you can send supplies to in the name of Tammy.

Terry Crews Says He Won’t Be In Expendables 4 Since A Producer Pressured Him To Drop His Sexual Assault Lawsuit

Terry Crews was recently near Capitol Hill talking about the Sexual Assault Survivor’s Bill of Rights with the Senate Judiciary Committee. He spoke of how important this issue was to him, especially since he’s been a victim of sexual assault.

Crews didn’t mention the name of his attacker, but previously he has said that Adam Venit touched his genitals at a party back in 2016. Venit has of course denied these allegations.

Terry said that, “The assault lasted only minutes, but what he was effectively telling me while he held my genitals in his hand was that he held the power. That he was in control.”

He also said that, “I wanted these survivors to know that I believed them, I supported them, and that this happened to me too. This encouraged me to come forward with my own experience.”

He then spoke about a recent interaction he had with the producer of Expendables 4 (honestly how many stupid Expendables movies do we need?).

“I’ve done three movies called The Expendables with Sylvester Stallone.

The producer of that film called my manager and asked him to drop my case in order for me to be in the fourth installment of the movie, and if I didn’t there would be trouble.”

He had tweeted back in February about this as well saying:

“Management got a call last week from Avi Lerner producer of EXPENDABLES 4 saying I could avoid any “problems” on the sequel if I dropped my case against @WME.

Guess who’s Sly’s agent?
ADAM VENIT”

via GIPHY

Crews then shared the humiliation he felt after his assault:

“I was told over and over that this was not abuse. This was just a joke. This was just horseplay,

But I can say one man’s horseplay is another man’s humiliation. And I chose to tell my story and share my experience to stand in solidarity with millions of other survivors around the world.

That I know how hard it is to come forward. I know the shame associated with the assault.”

It’s safe to say that Twitter praised Terry for the amazing man he is, take a look at some of these Tweets.

This news came out yesterday and it’s safe to say the internet has voiced their opinions. One of those opinions comes from 50 Cent and it’s the problem that Terry is trying to confront.

He posted this image on Instagram which he later deleted, maybe you can see why.

His caption says, “LOL, What the f*** is going on out here man? Terry: I froze in fear. they would have had to take me to jail. get the strap.”

I wonder what he would say in front of Terry’s face.

Terry concluded his speech in front of the Committee by saying how important the Sexual Assault Survivor’s Bill of Rights really is:

“This bill gives survivors the right to have time to distance themselves from the immediate trauma before making the difficult decision to report the assault to law enforcement.”

Keep being a force for good Terry, we the people of the internet are standing with you.

Jogger Thrown In Jail After He Threw A Homeless Man’s Belonging Into A Lake

Sometimes stories don’t begin well but they end just how you wanted. That’s the case here when a jogger was caught on video throwing a homeless man’s possessions into a lake. At first he was just known as “Jogger Joe” but now he’s been identified as Henry William Sintay. Now he’s sitting in Santa Rita jail in California.

SEE ALSO: Police Officer “Accidentally” Steals A Burrito From A Gas Station And His Reaction Was Hilarious

He was seen by JJ Harris at first and thankfully he began videoing. Sintay was seen kicking around Greg “Jarew” Markson’s items, then eventually throwing them into a nearby lake and trash can.

Image Via Twitter

Sintay is being held on $100,000 bail and is awaiting his next steps. Since Harris posted the video on Twitter it’s gone quite viral and has been viewed over 750K times.

Initially the Oakland Police were called but they were unable to charge him with anything due to the belongings being classified as “debris.”

I wish there was something the Police could do when you are just being a mean person for no reason.

Sintay actually showed up the next day though, and was seen in another viral Facebook video trying to repair the damage he had done. There was just one thing wrong. He denied that he was the same man that came a day earlier and wrecked everything in the first place. He said he was there because he was “trying to do the right (expletive) thing.” Sure man, sure.

Matt Nelson got the whole thing on video, and when others began to question Sintay he tried to steal Nelson’s phone to stop the video from being recorded.

There was a fight that broke out, but not seen on camera. Nelson wrote on Facebook later that day that he was, “dragged by their moving vehicle and hit a few times in the head, but I’m safe now. Still do not have my phone.”

You thought that Sintay was in jail because of the damage he did to the homeless man’s things but nope it was a charge of theft that brought a type of justice to this story.

Nelson went onto say, “Please keep calling it and if Henry picks up, I’d like it back.”

Image Via Twitter

After the viral Twitter video though, people have been pitching in to help Markson, the homeless man. They have been bringing him some essentials to replace what had been damaged due to Sintay’s rampage.

DNA Evidence From A Man’s Napkin Just Sent Him To Jail For A Crime He Committed 32 Years Ago

Back in 1986, a murder went unsolved. But now after more than 30 years have gone by, justice has finally been served. A girl was found raped and murdered in a park in Washington state. Her killer was recently charged for his crimes due to DNA evidence that he probably thought would never be linked back to him.

I’d be surprised if Netflix doesn’t pick up the rights to this story line in sort of a reverse Making A Murderer plot line. Recently DNA evidence has gotten a few convictions of cold cases in the past few months.

Gary Hartman, 66-years-old, was charged Friday for killing and raping six-grader Michella Welch.

Image Via KIRO-TV

Welch went missing after she was babysitting her sisters near Puget Park on March 26, 1986. She went home to make sandwiches and her sisters called her shortly after and never heard back from her.

Police Chief Don Ramsdell said in a news conference:

“A search dog found Michella’s body just before 11 p.m. that night in an isolated area in the gulch, more than a quarter-mile away from the play area. Michella had been sexually assaulted and murdered.”

Image Via ABC News

After a pile of leads that didn’t pan out, the case went cold until 2016. That’s when the Pierce County Prosecutor’s Office found a genetic genealogist to use DNA found at the original crime scene to put together a family tree via a public genealogy database.

Eventually they narrowed it down to Gary Hartman along with his younger brother who had been in the same area in 1986.

That’s when a private investigator followed Gary until he went to a diner and used a napkin multiple times. The napkin then got sent to the Washington State Patrol Crime Laboratory. Drumroll please…

via GIPHY

IT WAS A MATCH!

He is currently being held on a $5 million bail and will await his official hearing till Monday. Apparently Hartman stayed in the area his whole life and was living with his third wife.

KOMO News spoke to Nicole Eby, who was Michella’s younger sister. They asked her if she forgives Hartman for the pain she caused her family. She said:

“Yeah I do, I do. It’s hard but if I hold that in, it makes me angry. Since Michella didn’t get to live her life out I want to live my life out for good. His choices will hopefully put him behind bars and where I think he should live the rest of his life.”

Image Via News Tribune

Hartman was a nurse since at least 1998, but never had a prior criminal history. Stephanie Brookens was a nurse at Western State Hospital in 2007 and had met Hartman. She said that:

“I knew there was something off but I didn’t know how bad it was you know? I would have figured cheat on his wife or something minor. A murder and a rape? I don’t understand how you can put that in a little box in your mind and then go into a helping profession.”

Told you it sounded like a Netflix series.

Recently, during a flight from Boston to Los Angeles, a man got aboard the plane who was deaf as well as blind. The crew of the plane wanted to assist the man but weren’t sure on how to communicate with him.

The crew let out a message over the speakers wondering if anyone knew sign language and thankfully Clara Daly, a 15 year old, came to the rescue.

After the experience, Lynette Scribner wrote about it on Facebook and it went viral as it should have. She wrote:

“I saw this gentleman, Tim, in Boston’s Logan airport with the sister he’d been visiting – it appeared he was both deaf and blind, as I observed her signing into his hand for him to feel her words.

When he came aboard the plane he’d been assigned the middle seat of my row. The kind gentleman who had the aisle seat graciously gave it up for him. At this point Tim was traveling alone.”

“The flight attendants sincerely wanted to assist him, but had no way to communicate. I watched as they didn’t flinch when he reached out to touch their faces and arms. They took his hand and tried so hard to communicate with him, to no avail.

He had some verbal ability, but clearly could not understand them. The man who’d given up his seat did his best to assist him with things like opening coffee creamer and putting it in his coffee.”

That’s when Clara came to the rescue.

“She learned ASL because she had dyslexia and it was the easiest foreign language for her to learn. For the rest of the flight she attended to Tim and made sure his needs were met.

It was fascinating to watch as she signed one letter at a time into his hand. He was able to ‘read’ her signing and they carried on an animated conversation.”

“When he asked her if she was pretty, she blushed and laughed as the seat mate, who’d learned a few signs, communicated an enthusiastic yes to Tim. I don’t know when I’ve ever seen so many people rally to take care of another human being.

All of us in the immediate rows were laughing and smiling and enjoying his obvious delight in having someone to talk to. Huge kudos to the flight attendants of Alaska Airlines who went above and beyond to meet Tim’s needs.

I can’t say enough about this beautiful young woman named Clara who didn’t think twice about helping her fellow passenger. It was a beautiful reminder, in this time of too much awfulness, that there are still good, good people who are willing to look out for each other. #alaskaairlines”

Clara spoke to CNN later on saying, “I went to [Cook] a total of three times, once to get him water, another to tell him the time, and the last hour of the flight to just talk to him.”

Talk about a girl that was raised right. Anyone who is questioning Generation Z and their impact on society needs to take a look at this inspiring story!

Woman Posts Picture Online And What She Is Wearing Is Making Every Man That Sees It Angry

Katy Stoll had no clue what type of Twitter storm she was starting. Stoll is a podcaster, writer, producer and actor and she recently tweeted out an image that she thought was innocent enough.

Image Via Katystoll Instagram

It was a picture of herself and she was wearing a shirt with the phrase, “The Past Is Male.” It’s safe to say her followers weren’t a huge fan of it.

They thought that she was suggesting that people forget all of the contributions from males and only go forward with women’s accomplishments.

After she posted the image as her profile photo, some people responded harshly to her intentions:

These are obviously not the intentions of Katy at all, but merely the opposite but it seems that these boneheads couldn’t get the picture so she had to explain it out for them.

After a few of these tweets she responded to the bulk of the claims with:

“Some of your sensitive souls are concerned about my shirt! Allow me to explain.

‘The Past is Male’ doesn’t mean I hate men, it means the past was a sexist patriarchy & the future is about equality.

It’s more inclusive than the ‘future is female’ and also funny. Hope that helps!”

It was annoying that Katy had to mansplain her point that didn’t need any explanation at all. Others responded positively and understood the underlying issue.

Sushi Fan Discovers 5-Foot Tapeworm Living Inside His Body

This article originally appeared and was published on AOL.com

A California man with a love for raw fish went to the emergency room where he told doctors about a gross discovery he made while using the bathroom.

Among the doctors he shared the exciting story with was Dr. Kenny Bahn, an emergency physician at Community Regional Medical Center, who recently told the story of his patient to the producers of “This Won’t Hurt A Bit,” a podcast for curious health consumers.

According to Bahn, the man initially came in complaining about bloody diarrhea, but later told doctors he really wanted to get treated for “worms.”

Bahn said he was skeptical at first, like many other ER doctors are of patients self-diagnosing themselves, but that was until the patient handed him proof in a grocery bag.

“I take out a toilet paper roll, and wrapped around it, of course, is what looks like this giant, long tapeworm,” Bahn said on the podcast on Jan. 8.

Bahn said the parasitic warm measured 5.5 feet long when unraveled and laid out on the emergency department floor. “Just my height,” the doctor said.

The patient told Bahn he discovered the helminth — the general term for a parasitic worm– as it began to wiggle out as he was using the bathroom. Bahn said the patient was initially terrified of the sensation, thinking that his “guts were coming out.’” But as he pulled more on the parasite and felt it moving, he realized it was a tapeworm and was instantly relieved.

The patient was administered a pill for treatment that would expel the rest of the parasite in his body

NOW WATCH: This Shipworm Is Massive!

Bahn said the patient swore that he hadn’t traveled anywhere outside of the country, or did anything out of the normal that he thought could have put him at risk for such an infection. But he did confess he had a love for raw salmon sushi.

“He says, ‘I eat raw salmon almost every day,’ ” Bahn said.

According to the CDC, there has been an outbreak of Japanese tapeworms in Pacific-caught salmon. A mystery, Bahn said, was solved for the patient, who quickly vowed he will never eat salmon again.

Dad Creates Works Of Art On His Children’s Lunch Bags To Help Them Not Be So Shy At School

When I first saw Lynell Jinks’ art I was blown away. These should be on large canvases seen by the masses, but they are just drawings on a paper lunch bag for his kids. I mean they look like they should take hours and he does this all the time, twice a day for his kids?!

He began to do so for his son, Izaac, when he had a field trip five years ago. Jinks said that, “My wife said I should draw his name on the bag. I drew Iron Man but instead wrote Izaac Man.”

He then began to do the same for his daugther Zelina who was a bit shy at school. He drew Monster High on her bag to help break the ice and start a conversation with the other kids.

Jinks recently went viral after President Obama gave him a shoutout on Instagram on Father’s Day.

Fast forward to now and he’s still doing it and somehow only has 5,500 followers?! Guys he’s a paper bag Picasso so give him a follow here and take a look at some of my favorite works of art below.

Boss Sends His Ex-Employee Money Online By Accident And Makes Himself Look Like An Idiot

When you are online, it’s possible to misclick and it happens sometimes. But when one is sending money via Paypal, they ask you like seven times if you are sure you want to send money. They even verify the account you are sending money to. So when it comes to screwing up, you just really have to not know what you’re doing. That’s what happened to this boss when he sent money to an ex-employee.

SEE ALSO: Someone Realized How Ridiculous People Look When They Are Trying To Sell Mirrors Online And I Can’t Look Away

John Woodwork (I don’t think that’s his last name), is the guy in question and he sent money to Imgur user Shhwing. In an interview with Bored Panda, Shhwing aka Stephen said this:

“I did woodwork for him, aging wood and turning the wood into shelves. The reason I left was because he never turned on the ventilation to save money, so there was always sawdust in the air that I was breathing in. He only provided a paper face mask and I started to have respiratory issues.”

So the cheap boss sends money on accident to an employee that didn’t like him for being cheap. Perfect scenario right? Pretty much.

It started off pretty cordial in the beginning…

So this is where John started to lose his mind, even though it was his mistake. Note that John never once apologized for the inconvenience. Sounds like a boss I had once…

This is where Stephen laid into him. I bet he always wanted to do this. Now there was no possibility of firing so he didn’t hold back.

John sounds like a guy that is too embarrassed to ever admit he’s an idiot with technology.

He almost sounds like one of those Craigslists scammers, but he just seems naive at the same time.

I bet Paypal really bought your argument, since you know Stephen never denied you your money. He was just a little busy…

I probably would have stopped replying at this point and let John go crazy by himself, but Stephen is a better man than I.

Stephen also said to Bored Panda:

“I don’t think he was trying to scam me, he didn’t seem like that type of person. I haven’t spoken with him since, I blocked his phone number because there’s no reason I’ll ever need to speak to him again/be bothered by him again.”

Yeah sounds about right. What would you have done?

Disney Illustrator Draws What Life Is Like After His Wife Passes Away And Is Someone Cutting Onions?

Losing a loved one can be tough, especially when you have kids with them. That’s the challenge Gary Andrews found himself in when his beloved wife passed away. The two had been happily married for 19 years and had two daughters.

Gary is a former Disney illustrator so when she died, he grieved through his doodle diary. He told The Daily Mail:

“I was crying so hard it was difficult to focus on the page. I was drawing through tears. Joy had been my soulmate for 19 years. She was beautiful, kind, generous and funny. We did everything together. When I lost her, I felt half of me had gone.”

Joy died of Septis that is an illness that is just like a common flu. Gary hopes that his drawings raise awareness for this terrible disease. Take a look at some of our favorites and try and not use too many tissues!
