Nicki Minaj Quietly Kept Sending Funds To An Indian Village, Today It's Fully Developed

Today It's Fully Developed

It sounds like she is playing Age of Empires and she finally upgraded the town center to the last age...

Not a fan of her charity work at all but I think her music is great.

Say what you want about her, she's doing more for her people and her fans than people who have 10x her income do for anyone.

Edit: Please don't take this as me condemning all of the super wealthy. I know there are good ones out there but there are also those that would take the shirt off your back and sell it if they thought it would turn a profit.

Edit #2: Jesus you people are picky. Nearly 1600 upvotes and you bastards are still picking my wording apart. Okay, I acknowledge Nicki is from Trinidad and this village is in India. By 'her people' I meant more along the lines of those that support her and those that she feels share the same values as her. Can we please just applaud her for what she does and leave me alone? It's Monday and I don't want to think anymore.

Wasn't there a post where she would pay a student's loans if they showed her straight As? Was that true?

Woman drops 40 pounds to donate her kidney to a friend

This news makes me want to have closer bonds with my friends. So I can harvest their sweet, sweet, kidneys.

"The real LPT is always in the comments."

The rare instance of a lose-lose also being a win-win

I think this is great. One of my friends dropped a little weight and got in shape in order to give me a kidney. I am forever grateful, and constantly am trying to lead a charge to educate on donating organs.

Children's Hospital Los Angeles is about to receive a generous donation from a famous source: rapper, cooking show host, and entrepreneur Snoop Dogg.

Cooking show host listed second. Smh

Snoop Dogg will forever be a genuinely funny and care free guy. We need more Snoop Doggs.

Wow your high school ended racism that's pretty cool.

For me Snoop will always be the one that broke the music barriers. In my high school the white kids listened to Nirvana and Pearl Jam and Alice N Chains while the black kids listened to Hip Hop. I always liked Hip Hop more and hated Nirvana, it seemed like they were fuckin with us, all distorted guitars. But I went along with it as I assume many white kids did.

But then came Snoop and we were all like fuck, this is such a great sound, I love this. It's like white kids couldn't hold back anymore, we all loved it too much. That was when music stopped being white music and black music. From then on good music was just good music, no matter who you were.

Theres a big difference between motels and hotels

Yeah my thinking went from she's rich to poor thing pretty quickly.

The other kids called them "motel rats." Kids are mean yo.

lol I lived in a mini van during highschool (part of junior and most of senior year) and my award was "most likely to live in his van". That's what's in my yearbook. Kids are rough, and adults seem to be oblivious to it or just so worn out they miss a lot of the stupid malicious shit kids do.

Dutch King Reveals Secret Life As Part-Time Pilot On KLM Airline

Dutch King Reveals Secret Life As Part-Time Pilot On KLM Airline

The flying Dutchman

UK aviation enthusiast here: it was well known that he was qualified to fly the official royal family / government plane and has now trained on 737's for when they change it. His grandad was a big plane nut and he likes to fly too.

He's been spotted before occasionally flying commercials, but the new information is that it's regular.

In hindsight this isn't surprising - there is a minimum you have to fly in a year to remain qualified... So he's doing that.

Token extra facts - Dutch law means he's not allowed to be paid for it. While flying the captain of the plane is in charge of him according to aviation law, so there are a load of KLM pilots who have been higher in position that the king for a few hours...

Edit: I'm so close to this being my top comment... I hope it happens!

EDIT 2: My top comment is an uplifting comment on an uplifting thread. I feel like a good person. :)

As a dutchy myself , just as the article states we all probably know that he had a flying license but we didn't know he was actively involved in commercial flying.

I want to believe, but I'm hesitant to. How 'secret' is it in the Netherlands?

China 'set to ban dog meat' at notorious Yulin festival

China 'set to ban dog meat' at notorious Yulin festival

Thank you, papa Franku.

Its not the fact that they eat dogs but the methods in which they are killed which makes it different to eating pigs and goats, most people and campaigners against Yulin don't have a problem with the consumption of dogs but the method. The animals are tortured, cooked alive in oil etc. in order to release adrenaline which they believe makes the meat taste better. The festival is not a traditional thing but is a relatively new custom, they also steal pets and kill them.

Why? Just cause we say it's wrong? I get it's messed up, but come on we eat pigs, goats, and cows which are sacred to other people, but they don't get involved and mess with it so why do we get involved in other people's customs

If you're white they'll charge you extra, I shit you not.

Billionaire Gives Away His Fortune to Help Save the Ocean

Billionaire Gives Away His Fortune to Help Save the Ocean

Someone actually does something = 250 upvotes

Old lady finds a cat = 5000000000 upvotes

Wow, apparently he was destroying the ocean before and now he is saving it. Something might of hit him which made him realize the value of the ocean.

I've always had a chip on my shoulder for rich people like actors and such who receive such praise but never seem to do anything with their riches.

Humanity needs more people with hearts like this.

As an oceanographer I think this is an awesome piece of philanthropy. About time the rich see the ocean ad more than support for mega yachts. The design of the vessel is fascinating as well. If I were a billionaire it's exactly the sort of thing I would do.

Im sorry, but 10k seems like pennies compared to what he saved them from paying.

Thanks for saving the world superman... Here's 10 grand.

I don't want to ruin this uplifting mood but the media pretty much Dox'd this guy and now some people that were spreading this know his name, his approximate location and his family's names. It's horrible that he was pretty much "attacked" by "journalists" for doing something good and could, now, potentially have his life ruined. Fuck "The Telegraph" and every media outlet that has perpetuated this using his real identity.

Edit: I get it. If the media has found him so could potential blackhats. But is making it any easier a good thing? The most time consuming and cumbersome process of exploitation or "hacking" is information gathering. It doesn't need to be done for people looking to make someone else's life miserable.

My experience of the UK public sector is that the more good you do, the more they hate you.

My Asian parents will probably read this story and ask me why I couldn't go to Harvard

She worked 1 full time job and 2 part time jobs to support him AND THEN still had time to teach him and be by his side. That's amazing. She must have slept only like 2 hours a night.

My Asian parents would read this and wonder why their son is white and not adopted

My Asian parents will probably read this story and ask me why I didn't go to college.
