Man Builds His Dream House Complete With A Fishing Hole In The Living Room – And It’s For Sale

A man in Oklahoma built a house on a pond that has a fishing hole in the living room.

Paul Phillips, a contractor in the Skiatook, Oklahoma area has recently put his (and my) dream home up for sale. Why? Because he wants to build a bigger one. Paul bought this land, dug a pond, stocked it with slam packed with crappie and catfish then built a house right on top of that pond. This house has three bedrooms and three bathrooms and of course, a fishing hole in the floor of the living room. I think I might need to move to Oklahoma and have this.

You Should NEVER Google These 9 Things!

This is just a brief list of things you should NEVER Google. They are mostly things that are a bit disgusting, some of which we filtered out because they’re just too graphic. Either way, you should be warned that if you do choose to search for the things on the below list, they may not have pleasant results. I did my best to describe them. I also included less graphic images so not to gross you out!

Fournier

never-google-these-01

Orlando Magic NBA player Evan Fournier’s nickname is “Never Google” and there’s a reason. His last name, which is an old French word for “Boulanger” (or “Breadmaker”), is also the name of a type of gangrene that affects the genitalia. You’ve been warned.

Krokodil

Never Google These

The street name for Desomorphine, a morphine derivative with powerful opioid effects, which has been used as a substitute for Heroin in Russia and Ukraine. The side effects of the often-illegally produced drugs include toxic substances which can “cook” the skin, or cause large scale tissue infection or damage in the injected area. It’s become known as a flesh-eating drug.

Your Favorite Food

Never Google These

You’ll only get hungry. See, they’re not all about flesh-eating this and that.

Mouth Larva

Never Google These

I was looking for ‘moth larva’ and instead ran into this beastie. We can confirm, it’s exactly what you’d expect and you shouldn’t go there.

Google

Never Google These

Haven’t you heard that 100% true thing about the infinite loop and the world ending? Also, chances are your URL field is also a search bar – save yourself some time and search for what you’re looking for (if not, change your default search engine to one you want).

Calculus Bridge

Never Google These

It’s not a really hard maths problem. It’s hardened plaque across the teeth – a big old chunk of it. Generally it has to be chipped away by a dentist. It’s not that pretty.

Your E-Mail Address

Never Google These

It can be illuminating to see what you’re linked to online, and sometimes terrifying. Reddit users reported sold accounts, spam, password leaks, the lot – in fact, it’s probably safest to search to double check, even if you don’t like what you find. A recommended tool to find if you’ve been compromised in a data breach is “haveibeen pwned.com”, which may let you know.

Harlequin Ichthyosis

Never Google These

It’s a severe genetic disease in which, at birth, a child’s skin is encased in thick white plates of skin, separated by deep cracks. This has many complications – because there are cracks in the skin the newborns are more susceptible to infection and constant care is required to protect and moisturise the skin. The disease used to be considered fatal. But with improved neonatal care and early introduction of oral retinoids, the number of survivors is increasing.

Your Symptoms

Never Google These

If you think you are seriously ill, you should go see a doctor.

Doctors Are Now Warning: If You Use Aluminum Foil, Stop It Or Face Deadly Consequences

Aluminum foil, which was first introduced in the early 1900s, is currently one of the most commonly used kitchen items. It is extremely versatile too, and is used for cooking, wrapping, and even for treating some common heath issues. However, the problem with this kitchen item is its neurotoxic nature, which negatively affects the brain function and it was even found to trigger the onset of Alzheimer`s disease. As explained by medical expert, exposure to this metal may lead to mental decline and loss of memory, balance, bodily control, and coordination.

Additionally, it has been scientifically shown that cooking with aluminum foil impacts the bones, due to the fact that the metal accumulates in the bones and leads to loss of calcium which is of utmost importance for proper bone health.

doctors warning against aluminum foil

Cooking with aluminum foil was also found to cause pulmonary fibrosis and other respiratory issues. When exposed to high temperatures through baking or grilling, the little bits of the metal end up in the food. Even if these tiny pieces are not released, adding certain spices or lemons may cause chemical leaching of aluminum.

Essam Zubaidy, a chemical engineering researcher at the American University of Sharjah, has done an extensive study which looked at the effects of aluminum on cooking. He found that a meal cooked in aluminum foil may contain up to 400 mg of aluminum. “The higher the temperature, the more the leaching. Foil is not suitable for cooking and is not suitable for using with vegetables like tomatoes, citrus juice or spices,” he explains.

doctors warning against aluminum foil

To sum up, even though this simple tool is budget-friendly and helps prepare tasty meals, it is extremely bad for your brain, for your bones, and ultimately for your lungs. Therefore, if you would like to avoid brain-related issues, problems with your bones, and ending up with a pair of unhealthy lungs, make sure you stop cooking with aluminum foil.

Mystery As Weird 50ft-Long Sea Creature Washes Up On Beach

Some sort of “sea creature” has washed up on a beach and no-one knows what the heck it is…? What remains of the carcass was found in Indonesia’s central Maluku province and, to be honest, I have absolutely no idea what this could be either. Locals and authorities are just as confused as they try and figure out wtf it can be.

People started sharing pictures of the carcass (which was still bleeding) on Wednesday. The 50ft-long beast was initially believed to be a boat by locals before they realized it was some kind of creature.

The whole scene prompted a military response as troops were called in to help clear it all away, reports the Sun.

There were a few local reports that claimed fishermen were saying that it was a giant squid. The thing is, giant squids are thought to only grow up to 43ft for females and 33ft for males.

However, a coordinator of Indonesia’s Marine and Coastal Resources Management said it was likely to be a whale. A whale?! That thing doesn’t look anything like a whale. I’m calling it as an alien.

Some samples have been taken of the creature and sent off to a laboratory to attempt to identify the species so hopefully it won’t be too long until this mystery is solved.

She Was Ignored By The Couple Who Take All The Washers & Dryers In The Building. How She Got Back At Them Is Genius.

This apartment building only has a few washers and dryers in the laundry room. A couple took up all of the washers, so when this woman came in, she formulated her revenge immediately. (Thanks Kerri for submitting this to Stuff Happens!)

So I live in an apartment building that has a shared laundry in the basement. There are 10 washers and 10 dryers. I had a single load of laundry to do before a flight tomorrow morning. So I headed downstairs with my basket.

Two machines are running when I get down there. There’s also a single couple taking up EIGHT washers to sort their laundry. I asked politely if they could divide one of them up into 1/7ths and put it in with their others so I can use a machine. They decline (apparently they have a system…) and tell me to wait however long it takes for the next person to claim their stuff to get the next machine.

At this point I realize it’s time to get petty. I wait until they leave and then go hit the pause button on all of their machines. I need to stall. Then I wait for the next washer to free up. I transfer this innocent bystanders ratty old towels immediately, pay for their dryer and leave a note to which dryer it’s in. Then I start my washer, and I hit “run” on my machine. I wait a few more minutes, and then resume all of their washers.

They come back down in the 40mins it takes to run and are mildly confused by why their machines are taking longer than usual. They suspect no foul play. By this point my washer is finishing up, so I grab a laundry cart and empty it out. I then proceed to take my laundry and divide it into 8 different dryers (like 2 shirts and a couple socks per dryer lop and set them all running, one by one, as they watch in bitter disbelief.

And then I settle down in a chair to watch my $12.50 of petty revenge spin.

To The Stranger In The Walmart Parking Lot, Thank You For Saving My Life

A woman is grabbed by her husband and being pulled through a parking lot. But then a quiet man does something that ends up saving her from a long, abusive relationship. And thank you Jenny for sharing your story to our website.

Read on below…


You likely don’t realize that you saved my life, but you did.

I was too scared to call out for help. If I called out for help and it didn’t work, he’d be even angrier at me. This was my survival instinct kicking in.

As my husband dragged me in a headlock through the parking lot towards our car, I struggled to escape his grasp, hoping someone would notice and care.

You noticed, and more importantly, you cared enough to do something.

My husband is a large intimidating man. You are an average, somewhat timid looking man. As you held the hand of your little son, it must have crossed your mind that intervening could be dangerous and would certainly be uncomfortable.

“Hey! You can’t do that dude”.

Your voice stopped not only my husband in his tracks, but several other nearby patrons. My hope of rescue began to build.
“F*ck off bro, this is my wife”.

My husband quickened his pace. The car was 15 feet away. Fear sunk back into my heart.

“I don’t care who she is, you can’t do that.”

My husband was extremely irritated at you. Perhaps even considering assaulting you. But then he started to feel the spotlight that was falling on him. More patrons were paying attention, some in their cars rolling down their window, some stopping in the parking lot to assess the situation.

It was enough. It was all I needed. My husband let go of me, got in the car and was gone. You went on with your day, surely unaware of the impact you just made on my life.

What you didn’t know is that I’d been trapped in the abusive relationship for years and that my husband had become absolutely unhinged in the last couple of days, showing levels of violence and anger I’d never seen in him.

What you didn’t know is that for the previous 32 hours he had kept me from my phone, my computer, my car, and any contact with anyone.

The only reason he risked taking me in public was because the income tax refund was in my name and he wanted me to cash it for him. I honestly expected him to kill me afterwards.

Minutes after you saved my life, I borrowed another stranger’s phone and called the police and my mother.

Finally, I am free. Thank you, stranger.

Update from Jenny: Wow. And thank you to all of you kind strangers! I can’t begin to explain what all of these supportive comments and private message mean to me. I hear your kind advice and it is so very much appreciated. I feel so much stronger now and ready to do this!!

As for the hateful messages I’m getting, you can’t bring me down. Yes, I realize I screwed up by staying all those years but the important thing is I’m out now.

16 Reasons ‘Married With Children’ Wouldn’t Survive On TV Today

Annoyed By Chewing Noises? It’s A Genuine Psychiatric Disorder

Do you get unfathomably angry at the sound of people doing the following: Drinking, chewing, crunching, gulping, nail biting, slurping, swallowing, clicking, breathing, sniffling, wheezing, whistling, finger tapping…the list goes on.

For some people reading this, those words alone are enough to get their blood boiling. If like me, you are one of these unfortunate souls, I have news; you’re suffering from a condition called Misophonia.

get-angry-at-the-sound-of-someone-chewing-01

The literal definition of misophonia is the hatred of sound. But sufferers don’t simply despise everything they hear. There are particular triggers that will send people into an almost uncontrollable rage. Sufferers will know that as soon as they hear one of their trigger sounds, it is impossible to filter it out. You become fixated on it and have an overwhelming urge to tell the perpetrator to stop immediately.

This condition is serious, it’s not just the mild dislike of some sounds, it causes extremely strong emotions in the sufferer and can have an extremely detrimental effect on someones relationships. When I am sat around a dinner table and someone is chewing with their mouth open it becomes unbearable. I’m not able to join in with the conversation as all of my energy is focussed on not shouting ‘close your fu**ing mouth’

It often affects sufferers loved ones most. It can lead to blazing arguments over the smallest thing such as slurping your cup of tea.

get-angry-at-the-sound-of-someone-chewing-02

The workplace can be incredibly tricky and cause a great deal of stress and anxiety. Being sat next to someone who does one of your triggers is one of the most frustrating things in the world and can only be likened to torture. It can cause you to become very unfocused and have an extremely negative impact on your output.

People with misophonia often suffer in silence for fear of causing offence or being mocked. When sufferers do speak up they’re often dismissed as being too sensitive – they’re told to “get over it,” “stop being so difficult,” or told to “grow up.”
It’s not that easy, trust me.

get-angry-at-the-sound-of-someone-chewing-03

Is there a cure for this infuriating condition? Well, I’m afraid there isn’t a pill you can take that will make it go away. However there are a number of things you can do to limit the effect it has on your life. Make sure you talk to your family, friends and colleagues about the condition. If they don’t believe you, show them this article if it helps…

If your work environment is full of triggers make sure you ask your boss if you can move somewhere else, that could lead to you getting your own office!

Some people have had hypnotherapy to help deal with their symptoms and say it’s been effective, it’s something I’m currently considering, I’ll try anything that might help.

If you’re not sure whether you suffer from the condition this will help you find out:

If that was torture, you have Misophonia.

Four Grandmas Try Fireball Whisky For the Very First Time

Most twenty-somethings have had their fair share of (terrible) experiences with Fireball whisky, the spicy, eye-watering elixir of the devil. However, when we think of fireball, we don’t normally think about it being sipped and slurped by people over the age of 30 — or 60, for that matter.

1452025102-grandmas-2

In the video below, a group of adorable grandmothers try Fireball for the first time. Though many of them enjoy a nip or two from time to time, they’ve never even heard about the belly-warming capabilities of the millennial’s favorite drink. If you’ve ever had Fireball before, you can imagine what happens when these women try it for the very first time.

The results may have you buying a bottle for your own grandmother.

Donate A Testicle The Payout For This Is $35,000

Need some EXTRA CASH? If you want to help the science community and line your pockets with a little bit of money there are some unconventional ways to do this by selling your body to science. Below is a list we found of the 5 most creative ways to make money by selling your body:

1. Sell your blood plasma. The payout $20-$50 per donation

Donate A Testicle The Payout For This Is $35,000 01

Human Plasma is a clear liquid that contains mostly water but is also filled with enzymes, proteins and antibodies. It is the largest component in the human blood. Human Plasma is mainly used to create therapies that treat people with autoimmune diseases, burn victims and clotting disorders. When blood is being drawn an automated machine separates the human plasma from the other blood components which is then returned to the donor. You can receive a payout between $20-$50 per donation.

2. Donate your reproductive cells. The payout for eggs is $5,000-$10,000 per donation. The payout for sperm is $30-$200 per donation.

Donate A Testicle The Payout For This Is $35,000 02

Egg donor agencies allow women whose ovaries do not produce healthy eggs to become pregnant using another woman’s eggs through IVF. In the United States egg donors can receive anywhere from $5000-$10,000 per donation from egg donor agencies. Men can donate their sperm to sperm donor banks with a much easier process and also a bit less lucrative than an egg donation. Men are paid anywhere from $30-$200 per human cell donation. However that can add up to more in the pocket because men can donate hundreds of sperm samples.

3. Lay in bed for 70 days straight. The payoff for this one is $18,000

Donate A Testicle The Payout For This Is $35,000 03

NASA uses this procedure to simulate some of the changes that occur in an astronaut’s body when going through space, weightless, during the flight. NASA will pay you to stay in bed for 70 days, 24 hours a day. You need to make sure you’re mentally prepared to spend 70 days in bed. Not everybody is comfortable with that. Not everybody can tolerate an extended time in bed. But remember the payout for this one….. $18,000!

4. Donate a Testicle. The payout for this is $35,000

Donate A Testicle The Payout For This Is $35,000 04

On a episode of “Extreme Cheapskates “a Las Vegas man figured out a way to make some money by signing up for medical trials. He saved himself more than $750. That inspired him to take it one step further. Most recently he also agreed to donate one of his testicles. But they didn’t just leave him hanging. They replaced it with an artificial one and paid him $35,000. It was reported that he used the money to purchase a Nissan 370 Z.

5. Enroll in psychological experiments. The payout varies per program

Donate A Testicle The Payout For This Is $35,000 05

Paid psychological experiments that examine behavior of brain function may not generate as high of a return as other trials, but they’re usually lower risk and require shorter commitment time. Most research universities offer easy sign up by keeping an online database of experiments available for people.
