Crying at work now. Thanks.

Congrats this is happy news.

Here's

a youtube link if you don't want to pfaff through a news website.

Usually unless I get into an article and read about the backgrounds, I’m able to somewhat keep it together, but just that’s quote in the title... damn. That hit me right there.

George Clooney gifted $1 million each to his 14 friends to thank them for helping him when he moved to Los Angeles. Also paid their taxes so that they can take the entire $1 Million

Guess I have to stop coming up with stupid excuses when friends ask me to help them moving

I liked Conan's joke about how pissed-off his 15th-best friend was...

Also paid their taxes so that they can take the entire $1 Million.

Well, of course. It’s his taxes, not their taxes.

How does one get to be George Clooney’s friend?

Couple Who Gambled On Bitcoin In 2012 Donates All Gains To Cancer Hospital in 2017

Little light on the details... Literally looks they wrote an article about a Twitter claim.

Very common nowadays. “Journalism,” they call it.

This website is probably fake news. Looking at the DNS records of the site, I have milk in my fridge older than this site: "Created Date: 2017-11-27" -- https://whois.icann.org/en/lookup?name=asiako.com -- Submit to /sub/quityourbuillshit

For the lazy:

Jeff Hammerbacher and his wife Halle Tecco have donated their entire bitcoin ETF to the MUSC Hollings Cancer Center in South Carolina.

The couple invested in the cryptocurrency in 2012 which was selling for around $800 at the time. Bitcoin soared to more than $17,000 last week after being worth less than $1,000 at the start of the year.'

They actually didn't say how much they sold it for but I think it's safe to say it's a nice chunk.

I hope these people appreciate what this man has done for them all. If only we had more people like this all around the world, right? Kudos sir on a great job..

Good to hear, though I think you shouldn't be required to study law for 16 years in order to get your justice.

Are you, an intellectual, whom'st've regularly watched Richard and Mortimer?

This isnt even news

But the damage has been done and people arent willing to change their minds.

Nor is it uplifting.

It is a sad thing that many people choose to put their children in danger, as well as other people’s children by proxy, based on the opinion of Jenny McCarthy, as opposed to that of the WHO and pretty much every single real doctor.

People don't realize how serious this is. It's so rare as to be virtually unprecedented in most journals. In his case, not only a single paper was retracted but a whole body of tainted work. This is the worst thing that ever could be done professionally to an academic.

Teach a man to fish and he’ll eat for a day. Use a man to fish and you’ll eat for a month.

I've been trying to figure this out for years. I knew I didn't want all that fancy shit, but that's it. 

Pine box? Maybe. 

Science? Maybe. 

Smoke me? Maybe. 

Plant a tree with me? Maybe. 

No. Not anymore. In the event my friends and family find my account when I'm dead. Please catch fish with me. Seriously. 

Edit: I'm drinking tonight so I'm texting the important ones now in case I fall down the stairs or some shit. 

Edit 2: Spelling. 

Probably final edit: I don't think they're into it so far :(

I lied one more drunk af edit: Success. Fuck yeah.

Cause it is a big fucking carp... caught with something so random that Reddit became amazed... and the rest of the story tells itself. That’ll be $5 please.

"Shit I didn't even think of the ocean."

Fucking lmao. That was just the sweetest cherry on top.

I found the details on the scores interesting, the older person had a far wider vocabulary range, yet the younger person won more games probably because they were able to use the available letters to the best advantage.

"How can we get it across that the guy was black without outright saying it in the title"

Wyoming police took an innocent man's $91,800. After a Vox report, he will get it back.

Wyoming police took an innocent man's $91,800. After a Vox report, he will get it back.

This isn't very uplifting, because an alternate title could be "If the police steal your money, you're probably fucked unless a news outlet takes an interest."

And then police complain that people are fearful and uncooperative.

'he will get it back'

What the hell do you mean, who cares if he gets it back. I want those cops in Jail

I know right?

Like you bet your ass I'm going to be skeptical when dealing with an organization that can detain me for the better part of a day at minimum even if I've done absolutely nothing illegal.

I was fully expecting the gay brother to be dead.

I have a friend who has a gay brother that was 'disowned' by his family. Never met him and hes never mentioned. Sad. Add to that my friend is also prob gay and not wanting to come out out of fear.

My community came together to buy a new bike for a woman who had hers stolen. She lives with cerebral palsy and used her bike as transportation to all destinations.

The good in people make up for the shitty people

This is a prime example of a silver lining. There is currently $2,800 raised for a $300 bike. She will have plenty leftover for her savings, or Christmas or to care for her dogs or whatever and a brand new better bike than the one she had. Safer and more comfortable. This worked out beautifully for her.

Start with the one in the mirror.

We just need more good people.
