Dedication makes a difference

If he charged what most wedding photographers charge at least he earned it. My wedding photos sucked and I still had to shell out thousands.

Looks so ominous

That's no joke. I paid $2,000 for my wedding photos, and they turned out great at least, but the photographer had a shitty attitude all day for some reason.

$2000? Wow. That's cheap. My buddy charges $6000 for the basic package.

It's The Catch Of The Day!

Okay, what's the story here?

Edit: Nvmd. Found it myself:

People come together to help a guy who had a stroke while driving

I didn't expect him to bounce off that lamppost GTA-style. Hope he is okay though.

It's a good example of how a medical emergency isn't always as obvious as you might think. So glad the right people were there to assist.

Friend's sister was pulled over for DUI. The cop walked up to her window and took one look at her. He ran back to his car and brought her some sugar cubes. A few seconds later she was fine. She never knew she was hypoglycemic ( whatever glycemic). He told her to go to a doctor asap and she was lucky he was the one to stop her. The cops mom has the same issues and he started carrying sugar for this reason. I think all police should know what signs to look for. This is even good information the general public should know as well.

Was absolutely shocked when I saw that. Thought that was the lamest part about GTA until now.

World's largest beach clean-up sees citizens coming together to remove 11 million pounds of filth over 85 weeks.

But have the dumping practices that caused this been curtailed? I need more information on why the beach is clearly a dumping site.

Labeled the "world's largest beach clean-up project" by the United Nations, Versova's dramatic transformation from filthy to fabulous has gone viral in India, where online commentators have praised the role of local volunteers in helping in the colossal effort.

Led by spirited young lawyer and environmentalist Afroz Shah, volunteers collected a staggering 5.3 million kilograms of decomposing trash and plastic from the 2.5 kilometer stretch of beach over a period of 21 months.

"I shifted to my new apartment two years back and saw plastic on the beach -- it was 5.5 feet high. A man could drown in the plastic," Shah told CNN. "I said I'm going to come on the field and do something. I have to protect my environment and it requires ground action."

Shah, 33, began cleaning the beach in 2015 with the help of a neighbor. Over time, he was joined by more than 1,000 volunteers including local Versova residents, slum-dwellers, politicians, Bollywood celebrities and schoolchildren.

The volunteers have also cleaned 52 public toilets at the beach and planted 50 coconut trees. Shah says he wants to plant 5,000 coconut trees there and turn it into a "coconut lagoon like it used to be."

"What I do is I pick up plastic. This is how I've been spending my weekends since 2015 and I love it," Shah said.
Cleanup sessions are held regularly on weekends in events that Shah calls "dates with the ocean."

The UN has also recognized Shah's volunteer work. Last year, the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) awarded him the Champion of the Earth award for his work in organizing community-led clean-up efforts.

Champion of the Earth?! That's one of the coolest fucking awards I've ever heard of. Good on that guy

I was just going to ask, how'd it get there? Dumped by city residents? Washed ashore from somewhere else? Where'd they put all the trash they picked up?

True human bro content. Thank you!

No you're crying

Did the tough mudder in CO a few years ago. Getting through it on a wheel chair is insanely impressive for both him and his Dad.

I got my neighbor's mail when they were gone last week. Just sayin.

I love how the mom cat looks at him all curious once she and her kitty are in the hidey-hole

The filmer Robin Seplut is the epitome of HumansBeingBros. Almost everyday he posts a new video of himself feeding or helping stray cats in Russia.

That's fucking amazing. Any way to donate to his cause? A kitten/cat saviour is a hero in my book.

This guy was on a road trip when he found 2 abandoned puppies in the desert

I can't handle this level of adorability. There is no room in my cold and brittle heart for this.

What's the opposite of rage-quitting?

Who the fuck would abandon those cute little guys in the desert? Props to the guy in the video for being a great person and saving them.

Joy-joining

Yeah, plus the last caption

Welp, guys, that was fun hanging out with ya. Back to the dessert you go.

Redneck ingenuity at it again! Well done, sir!

Did he survive? I hope he did, that was incredibly brave.

EDIT: just checked twitter replies and he did survive!!!!!

He lived? Holy shit those things are literally tanks.

Good on him

I don't like kids, but I like kids like this.

I was a high school teacher, there are a lot of really great young people out there. Before the adulthood beats it out of them.

It mostly is. Despite what you read, people are mostly good. Seriously get off the internet & look around you, really look. That neighbour annoying you by double parking, hey they're dropping off food for another shut in neighbour. That annoying teen down the stores, goes home drives her Grandma to her doctors appointments. That kid making all that noise next door, gives all his birthday money to the local dog rescue. Stop looking for the bad & look for the good with the same energy. It's there, the human brain is just wired to remember & see the shitty stuff better.
