Sorority Sisters Called Out For Snapping Selfies During Arizona Diamondbacks Game


(PCM) We are sure that many of us do not realize quite how ridiculous we look when we are attempting to strike a pose in order to capture the perfect selfie. A group of sorority sister who were attending a recent Arizona Diamondbacks baseball game learned the hard way that you never know just who could be watching.

The girls were called out and ridiculed by the baseball game announcers once they took notice to the sheer amount of selfies the girls were snapping. A video was then posted on the Arizona Diamondbacks Facebook page and it quickly went viral.

Many found the clip to be harmless and funny, while others felt that the girls suffered unnecessary ridicule. We found it to be a true testament as to just how addicted the younger generation is to their phones and further cements the fact that sometimes we all need to just unplug and go out and enjoy life and actual human interaction every once in awhile (and the commentary for the announcers is pretty spot-on)

Due to the media frenzy over the baseball selfies the Arizona Diamondbacks and FOX Sports offered the sorority free tickets to an upcoming game, however they politely declined the offer and instead requested that the tickets be donated to a charity organization named A New Leaf which focuses on assisting families who are the victims of domestic violence.

Extreme Phone Pinching Is The Newest Social Media Trend


(PCM) We can’t help but get nervous just watching the videos of people partaking in the newest social media trend which is extreme phone pinching. The object is to loosely pinch your smartphone with two fingers and dangle it over ridiculously dangerous drops such as hotel balconies, sewer grates, elevator shafts etc.

The trend was first initiated by indie rock band Twenty One Pilots when they posted a series of Vine videos that showcased them using the extreme phone pinching technique in a slew of precarious situations. As attached as everyone is to their smartphones we have no idea why anyone would want to take the risk of possibly losing it forever and having to pay expensive repair bills to get them fixed, but we supposed the adrenaline rush is worth it for some.

Check out the compilation video below which is sure to put your nerves on edge! Currently, videos and photos are popping up all over social media with people showcasing their extreme phone pinching feats.

Gotta Love Karma! Woman Yells At A Black Bear Snacking On Her Kayak


(PCM) We probably laughed at this video a little more than we should have, in fact, we even had to watch it twice!  It just proves why you cannot mess with mother nature or interfere with the animal kingdom, as karma certainly has a way of turning itself around.

Just listening to this poor woman continuously yelling “Stop Bear”, as if the bear will somehow turn around and respond is hilarious to those of us with a twisted sense of humor. The woman even attempts to reason with the bear while it is making a snack out of her kayak saying “It’s not even food. It doesn’t even taste good”! The woman’s identity has not yet been officially revealed and all that we know is that she is from somewhere in Southeast Alaska, but she is quickly becoming a viral superstar.  The video has been viewed nearly 800,000 times!

Something tells us “Bear don’t eat my kayak” is going to be a new catchphrase throughout the rest of this year. And taking a page right out of the Honey Badger handbook, bear doesn’t give a sh*t! Sorry about your luck lady … maybe next time you will think twice before busting out the pepper spray.

Bully Gets Taught A Valuable Lesson After Picking On A Blind Student


(PCM) A video which showcases an altercation between a high school bully and another teen defending his blind classmate has gone viral after a clip surfaced on Reddit. It was shared by a user whose brother filmed the melee and attends the high school at which the altercation took place. He claims that he does not know how or why the altercation began in the first place.

The incident took place at Huntington Beach High School and the video shows a teen bully viciously attacking a blind classmate named Austin, who was not making any attempt to fight back. Suddenly, just as the bully is about to land his final punch on the blind student he is clocked by another student who came to the defense of his classmate and knocked to the ground.  The defender, whose name we believe to be Cody Pines, checked to be sure the blind student was unharmed and then proceeds to lay into the bully even more.

He reprimands him for picking on a blind student and threatens that if he ever picks on him again he will be sorry. There is some strong language and violence in the video below:

There has been an outpouring of support for the defender Cody and many hope that he will not be suspended for stepping in and setting the bully straight, as the high school has a zero tolerance policy for violence.  School officials say that they are investigating the incident and it has now been revealed that the bully, Noah, has been arrested for misdemeanor battery and released to his parents care. They do not plan to press charges against Cody for the incident and in a comment Cody says he does not want to see Noah’s life ruined over the incident and he hopes now that everyone will hang out with Austin and show him some love because he really deserves it!

92-Year Old World War II Veteran Sings To His Dying Wife


(PCM) We are still wiping the tears from our eyes after watching the video of 92-year old World War II veteran Howard singing to his dying wife. The video which was filmed while Howard’s wife Laura was in hospice care has since gone viral and now has well over 4 million views and counting on YouTube.

Howard and Laura’s granddaughter says that the couple has been married for 73 years and when the heartwarming video was filmed Laura was told that she only had about a week left to live. Howard serenaded his wife with their song, which is “You’ll Never Know” by Rosemary Clooney w/Harry James, as it used to comfort her while he was away during World War II. The couple also sang the song together when they renewed their wedding vows to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary.

You can clearly see in the video the sheer amount of love this couple has for one another and after the video was posted Laura’s spirits were so lifted by the outpouring of love and support the couple received on social media that she was able to leave hospice care. Laura will now be spending her final days at home surrounded by her family and loved ones.

Just an absolutely beautiful story and we certainly send this amazing couple thoughts of love and peace!

Newly Released Footage Shows John Lennon Mocking Disabled People During Beatles Performance


(PCM) Newly uncovered footage of a Beatles performance in the 1960’s shows singer John Lennon allegedly mocking disabled people and many are now calling Lennon’s sense of humor “sick”.  In the video clip, the fans scream as Lennon mimics a disabled person trying to clap their hands and stomp their feet.

The video was aired during a British TV special called “It Was Alright In The 1960’s” which showcased TV clips and incidents that aired or occurred during that time period that would be considered wildly inappropriate if they happened today.

The video footage has been shocking to fans of Lennon who look to him as an inspiration and advocate for underprivileged individuals, however over the years many of the darker aspects of his personality have come to light. Fans have taken to social media to express their outrage and concerns about the video clip and many feel that Lennon’s behavior was not alright even back in the 60’s!
