We may think we have cracked the genetic code but nature still finds a way to surprise us. When this Brazilian mom gave birth to her first child, at first she thought someone at the hospital made a mistake, but as her family continued to grow, the things only got more curious. Three of her 6 children were born Albino. If you thought the condition is misunderstood that’s especially true for Brazilian rural areas. Not only do they face constant social challenges, there are some medical risks I didn’t know about. I think they’re beautiful. goviralhasPoppedUp = false; // create [More]
It doesn’t happen very often that a blurry photo of a stranger goes viral, but that’s exactly what happened with this pic of Kenneth Varnes. It was snapped during a funeral procession for a fallen veteran when a stranger saw Varnes standing by his truck in pouring rain, paying his respect. Curiously enough, Varnes, a soldier himself, didn’t even know someone was taking photo of him until later and he thinks what he did is the most natural thing. Varnes said the brotherhood of the military is why he felt the need to do it. I guess it is true [More]
The reason talent shows are so hard is that you’re not just competing against other contestants, there’s also the judges and their personal musical tastes and prejudices that stand against you. Yes, Simon thought this girl was crazy for choosing this song, it’s as unimaginative as can be and everyone has heard it a million times, but boy did she prove him wrong. From the moment she started singing it was clear they were witnessing something special and by the end of it I got chills running down my spine. This is why they say “less is more”. goviralhasPoppedUp = [More]
The new season of Britain’s got talent has just begun and the very first episode brought us a bombshell, the first Golden Buzzer. To everyone’s surprise it was Simon himself who excitedly reached for it after hearing this 15 year girl. Truth be told, if he hadn’t done it, someone else would because she is INCREDIBLE. Teenager Sarah Ikumu picked one of the grandest songs ever that not many professional singers would tackle let alone amateurs. She said it would showcase her vocal abilities and oh my God, did it ever… Just listen. goviralhasPoppedUp = false; // create youtube player [More]
It’s so adorable seeing a little girl play with her teddy bear like this, but when you learn the story behind it you’ll absolutely LOVE it. This little girl received the stuffed bear a month after her dad was deployed in the military. Just getting a present from her dad who’s not able to be there means a lot to a toddler, but when she squeezed its hand and heard her dad’s voice, the way she reacted is heart-melting. Dad recorded a message saying “Hi P, I love you” and made sure that even though he was far away, part [More]
You don’t even need to say one word to make friends with a kind person. This is the story of an elderly patient and a construction worker who made a connection even though they never talked or even got closer than 100 feet from each other. Gloria Porter had to spend a week at a hospital with pneumonia. To pass the time, she watched iron workers construct the new front entrance of the hospital. When one construction worker saw her in the window he sent her a “Get Well” note the only way he knew how. This is beautiful. goviralhasPoppedUp [More]
How is this even physically possible? Is this what happens when you really master your craft? I don’t know whether to call this gymnastics or ballet, but either way you look at it, it will blow your mind. These two superhumans performed an act that is like a ballet on steroids, a never before seen feat of strength and balance that gradually raised the bar of what I thought was humanly possible with every passing minute. I dare you to find something that even comes close to this. Just wait to the audience reaction in the end. It about sums [More]
Every parent likes to think their child is one in a million, but parents of identical twins Abigail and Isobel Perry know they are. For mom and dad, they’re a blessing but the first thing their doctor told them when they found out how special they are was “I’m sorry”. In modern medicine we have ways to find out if the child is going to be born with Down Syndrome so that the parents can have an option to terminate them. Seeing Abigail and Isobel and how happy they are growing up with their brother makes you think why anyone [More]
What does it take to win a case in 26 seconds flat? An expensive attorney? Rock hard evidence? Nope, just an extremely dumb defendant. This girl had her wallet stolen and as she was describing its content to the judge, the defendant interrupted her with arguably the dumbest thing he could have said. I wish the camera stayed on him so I could see the exact moment he realized what he said, but I’m pretty sure that moment hasn’t happened yet, LOL. Maybe he should consider career change because this criminal thing isn’t working out for him. goviralhasPoppedUp = false; [More]
When her son Cody told her he’d spend a night at a friend’s house, this mom didn’t think anything would happen, but when he didn’t return the next morning she started to worry. She dialed his phone and what she from the other end of the line made her dial 911 immediately. The only sound she could hear was strange and incoherent gargle and as soon as Cody was brought in to the hospital, the diagnosis was clear – the teenager has suffered a massive stroke. After a radical treatment that involved opening his skull and giving him hypothermia, they [More]
