Guy’s brutally honest breakup text goes viral as a reminder that ‘ghosting’ people isn’t cool.

via Shutterstock All too often, people leave a date with no idea how the other person feels about them. If you’re not into the other person, it can be stressful trying to gauge how they feel about the situation. Should you go forward and have another date? Will it come across as presumptuous to let them down? If they’re not into you either, will they make you feel stupid for laying out the reasons you don’t want to go out again? Or is it leading someone on to stay mum…

A group of cops pooled their money to help this landscaper after his truck, tools, and rent money were stolen.

Adrian Salgado supports his family working as a landscaper. Losing his truck and tools meant losing his livelihood. It started as a morning like any other for Adrian Salgado, as he started his gardening work in Santa Ana, California. But before he knew it, he was running down the street chasing his own work truck, brazenly stolen by two thieves. The truck had Salgado’s work tools, cell phone, and $1,000 cash for rent in it, and he wasn’t able to catch it as it sped away. He contacted his daughter…

This Mori group’s kapa haka performance of Bohemian Rhapsody will make your day.

Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody has been covered dozens of different ways. But you’ve never seen it performed like this. As one of the most iconic songs in rock music, Bohemian Rhapsody is recognizable no matter how it’s done. As children, my brother and I used to belt out Galileos and Figaros in the backseat of our parents’ Volkswagon whenever the song came on (yes, just like in Wayne’s World). While other kids learned about Beelzebub in Sunday School, I learned about him from Queen’s perfect harmonies. If there were an anthem…

The drawings are a mixture of tender, romantic moments combined with silly, crude, and very British humor. Here are some of our favorites from the last year. We hope you enjoy! #1 Poppy was skipping along clutching a little Easter snow globe thing that we’d bought her that she was so happy with. It wasn’t long before in her excitement she accidentally dropped it, and it instantly smashed on the pavement. She was devastated and stood in the street sobbing.

A dad used his daughter’s princess phase to teach leadership skills, and it’s perfection.

The way this dad handled his daughter’s “princess phase” is parenting at its best. Thanks to Disney upping their princess game with strong, independent female leads, raising a princess-obsessed daughter isn’t as potentially problematic as it used to be. But parents still worry that their little girls’ fascination with sparkling crowns and palaces may lead them to unhealthy ideas about gender roles and expectations. Will she think it’s desirable to be a damsel in distress waiting for a handsome prince to rescue her? Will she realize that that petticoats and…

Terry Crews has a simple way of describing toxic masculinity to men who dont get it.

via Gage Skidmore / Flickr When the term “toxic masculinity” gets bandied about, some males immediately take offense, believing the term assumes that masculinity is toxic in and of itself. However, that’s not what it means. The term “toxic” is before the term “masculinity,” which means it’s a form of masculinity. Toxic masculinity can manifest itself as bullying, catcalling, suppressing emotions, maintaining an appearance of hardness, and using violence as an indicator of power. So when a Twitter user named Alpha-Male_10201 asked him to define toxic masculinity, his response was…

People banded together to find the world’s loneliest frog true love and it might have just worked.

Photo by Robin Moore, Global Wildlife Conservation. Perhaps the story of Romeo and Juliet doesn’t have to end in tragedy after all. At least not for the frogs who go by the same names as those famous star-crossed lovers.   Still, avoiding a tragic ending for these special frogs hasn’t been easy. The species almost went extinct forever. Romeo is a Sehuencas water frog (Telmatobius yuracare), an aquatic species unique to the cloud forests of Bolivia, that for the last decade, was known as the “world’s loneliest frog.” He had…

Obama playing Santa at this children’s hospital is almost too much goodness to handle.

Did you feel that? That was a huge portion of the internet swooning in unison. President Obama surprised the children at Children’s National Hospital in Washington, D.C., and some of us will never be okay again. Donning a Santa hat and carrying a huge bag of gifts, Obama went room to room surprising unsuspecting children with the generosity, charm, grace, kindness, positivity, sincerity, humor, leadership, and all-around amazingness that define him. I’m a fan, clearly. But I’m not sure how anyone with a heart couldn’t be. Regardless of your feelings…
