The Dance Police. A Must See

We like everything happy. That’s how humans work. When things are not happy, we try and make them happy. If things are too strict, we try and find a way to let loose within the strictness.

When we expect hardship and find the contrary, we get happy. It’s so simple and easy to make humans happy, isn’t it?
So when we see a video taken at a police station, there is very little we can expect from it. Usually, happiness is not one of those things to expect.

Thankfully, there are sometimes when we are wrong. This is one of those times. Most happy stories about police are about how they helped someone, but this time, happiness comes in a different way.

This one story shows the good, human side of police officers. It was released from the El Paso County Sherriff’s Office. For a while, the lift at the office kept breaking down. It was causing a lot of consternation and, as you might imagine, they wanted to get to the bottom of the problem.
Seeing a good chance to put their powers to use, the cops installed a tiny hidden camera to see if they could spot the root cause of the issue. The hope was that if there was something or someone causing it, they would spot it with the camera.

While we don’t know if the video was able to help capture the cause of the problems or if top brass are still looking into the issue, what we do know is that the officers decided to put the camera to good use. They put up an elevator show by young officers, featuring the Sherriff himself. It’s a comical sight and something that just reminds you that outside of those livewire moments when a cop has to enforce a law that, generally, they can be good, honest people for the most part.

Have a watch at the video and you will get to see a more human side to the cops. Just remember that these days everything is caught on camera; even the rather wonderful (if awkward) moves of the local PD!

Share this to show others that sometimes cops can be damn cool when we aren’t blaming them for all of society’s ills.

We like everything happy. That’s how humans work. When things are not happy, we try and make them happy. If things are too strict, we try and find a way to let loose within the strictness.
When we expect hardship and find the contrary, we get happy...

Humans Are Awesome

Car Crash Proposal. This Guy Went Overboard

People are often assumed to fall in and out of love so many times in their lives. This one emotion can create the strongest of relationships and break the biggest of hearts all at the same time. It is a deep feeling that is a gateway to an array of actions and words. You always want the one you love to know it, feel it and reciprocate it. It’s a human thing. Every person has their own way to love, it may be sending gifts to your partner, spending more time with them, taking care of the children, listening to him/her or even just being a silent partner.

This same emotion can stir up the wildest of actions. How many times have you heard of clothes being thrown out of the house? Cars being keyed? People arguing? Are items being broken? Or even fights? All because the concerned parties are in some type of love related issues. Some even go to lengths such as faking their own deaths. Yes, you read that right, pretending that they are dead.

A young man known as Alexy Bykov fell into this odd category. He decided to ask his long-term girlfriend to spend the rest of her life with him by faking that he had passed away. He got a native Russian group of filmmakers to assist him with his planning.
He invited his girlfriend to meet him at a certain place and to her dismay, she was met by a road carnage site.

There were ambulances, crashed cars and broken glass everywhere. She saw paramedics attempting to help Alexy, when she rushed over they broke the news to her, Alexy hadn’t made it. She broke down into tears, that was probably the cue because at that exact moment and popped the big question.

Why? Just why? You may be wondering, but maybe he just wanted her to picture the world without him, then notice that her heart would shatter into a million tiny pieces. This would probably motivate her into the realization that she loves him. Whatever the motivation was, she said yes. She went through an insane cycle of happiness to confusion to panic to shock to deep sorrow, then back to shock and finally happiness.

This proposal is one most people would do without because right after you would probably need to go to a psychiatrist to help you untangle your emotions. On the brighter side, Alexy got the girl of his dreams. Maybe she loves the adrenaline and this was the perfect proposal for her. Somebody should have told him that the phrase till death do us part doesn’t need a drill.
Love brings out the craziest of actions, but at the end of the day, everyone loves to love.

Take a look at the video:

10 strange secrets about The Big Bang Theory

Big Bang Theory (BBT) is one of the most popular shows on CBS. BBT grabbed the attention of many viewers when it aired in 2007. With the exceptional writing of Chuck Lorre and Bill Prady, amazing performances by actors Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki and Kelley Cuoco along with perfect comic timing, this show is widely watched and loved all over the world.

Every character in this show has a unique ability and they are appreciated in their own way. This show is not only about science and intelligence but it is all about friendship, relationships and love. Everything about this show is amazing and no matter how many times you watch it, you will love it even more.

However, there are some strange facts about this show that the fans would be fascinated to know. Here are the top 10 strange secrets of The Big Bang Theory:


1. Lenny Penny Kenny.
As we all are aware that the name ‘The Big Bang Theory’ is symbolically given to this show with the purpose of not only science but also the fact of something new is being created. Magical as that sounds, this wasn’t the first name chosen by the writers. At first, the show was to be called ‘Lenny Penny Kenny’, featuring three main characters and so of course, the name’s Sheldon and Lennard would never have been introduced and neither would have all the other characters.

2. Mayim Bialik.
In this exceptional show where the writers and directors have tried to make everything look authentic, there is one authentic detail that most fans don’t know. Actress Mayim Bialik is the only actress in the show who is actually a scientist. She is a neuroscientist and got her doctorate degree in 2008. It is so great to have an actual doctor on set!

3. Hidden Injuries.
Another interesting thing about the show is that many of the actors have had many serious injuries but the directors have very smartly handled them. During season 4, Kelley Cuoco broke her leg while horseback riding so the directors made her do all the scenes behind the counter so that fans wouldn’t be disappointed and the shooting wouldn’t stop. Another actor, Mayim Bialik who plays the role of Amy, broke her arm in a car accident but had to hide it throughout the entire season 6.

4. Sheldon and Star Trek.
Now, as a Big Bang theory fan, we all know how crazy Sheldon is about Star Trek and that he has shared multiple references related to the Brand. However, the actor who plays Sheldon, Jim Parsons, has admitted having never watched Star Trek in his entire life. Also, he has never watched any of the other fictional shows that Sheldon loves including Doctor Who.

5. The Theorists.
We all know how unique The Big Bang Theory is. Who would have thought of a comic show about a group of science nerds and their friendship with a completely opposite girl who has the dream of becoming an actress? Seeing how amazing and different this show was, some people actually did try to copy the idea. In 2010, a show was aired with the name of ‘The Theorists’ in Belarus. When the actors of that show discovered that the producers have stolen the idea, they left.

6. Bazinga.
Sheldon’s all-time favorite phrase ‘Bazinga’ became so popular that some scientists actually used it in one of their discoveries. In 2013, a new species of orchid bee was discovered by Brazilian scientists and they decided to name it Euglossa Bazinga after the catchphrase bazinga. How cool is that? The producers thought that Sheldon would be very thrilled to know that an actual scientific discovery was named after his famous catchphrase.

7. Musical abilities.
Some of the people in the show have a remarkable ability to play musical instruments. In one episode, Sheldon plays the Theremin and the actor, Jim Parsons, played it all by himself regardless of the fact that the Theremin is one of the most difficult instruments to play. Other than that, Mayim Bialik actually learned how to play the harp for one of the episodes where Amy has to play it. Also, Johnny Galecki plays an amazing piano, it is not yet shown on the show but we’re still hoping.

8. Penny’s last name.
Isn’t it interesting that sometimes we skip the slightest details of the show we love? Have you ever noticed that the character of Penny has always been a sort of mystery for the fans? Her last name is literally never mentioned in the show and the producers like to keep it that way. Other than that, Penny’s mother was also never mentioned on the show. Kind of a mystery don’t you think? Despite all that, Penny made a way to everyone’s heart and is one of the most adored characters of the show.

9. Lennard’s glasses.
Lennard’s character has always been wonderful, charming and awkward but what lights up his character is his pair of glasses. It may sound stereotypical for a nerd to wear glasses, but with Lennard, it just fits. However, the actor, Johnny Galecki, doesn’t wear glasses. So throughout the show, he has been wearing glasses without any lens in them and the fans never figured it out and quite honestly, Lennard would have looked a little alternative without the glasses.

10. Blind casting.
We all know and agree with the fact that Jim Parsons is one of finest actors on The Big Bang Theory and he is just the perfect guy to play Sheldon. However, when Jim was called upon to audition, he did not know who Chuck Lorre was, he thought he was auditioning for the game show host Chuck Woolery. Nevertheless, Jim Parsons gave an amazing audition and became the best Sheldon anyone could have ever been.

Celebrity Deaths: Truth or Conspiracy?

You may not want to believe it, but everyone dies, even celebrities. Unlike deaths of non-celebrities, celebrity deaths are obviously more talked about, and sometimes, the cause of their death is remembered more than they are.

These celebrities died from reasons which some are considered mysterious at best. There are rumors and different theories about their deaths. Do you believe the official reasons or are you a conspiracy buff?
Expect to be shocked about some of these theories, as they make perfect sense.

Rumors About Robin Williams’ Death

Comedian and much-beloved actor Robin Williams shocked the world when reports of his suicide filled the news headlines on August 11, 2014. His wife later revealed that Williams did not have depression. Williams reportedly had Lewy body dementia. An autopsy of his body later confirmed that he indeed had the disease.

However, theorists adamantly believe that Williams was murdered by the Illuminati as a sacrifice in a form of a ritual to worship the devil.

What happened to Brittany Murphy?

Actress Brittany Murphy died in 2009. The autopsy report officially declared her cause of death as natural due to a combination of anemia and pneumonia. A mere three months after Murphy died, her husband passed away too due to the same condition of having anemia and pneumonia.

Some consider the possibility that their deaths were due to toxic mold or drug abuse. However, a theory suggests that Murphy was silenced by the Department of Homeland Security due to her exposure of immigration failings on the border of Mexico.

This Courageous Cop Helped Out a Shoplifter

When someone steals from a store, the stigma of theft can ruin their entire lives. Most of the time, we like seeing thieves and other people caught out taking what is not there to be taken. When the cops roll into the store to huckle them away for their theft, it’s usually something that the public enjoy watching – a rogue getting their comeuppance. However, sometimes, people who are stealing aren’t doing it out of badness or greed – but out of necessity.

Take Bennet Johns, a US Police Officer at Laurel PD, Maryland, was called to a theft attempt in a Giant grocery store, he walked in expecting the usual scenario to unfold. However, what he found was a young woman, ID unknown, who had tried to steal $15 worth of diapers for her child. When he arrived and heard her side of the story, he found out that she had stolen them to help her infant son.

On the spot, he cited for a misdemeanor theft – which was nice. Some officers would take the liberty here and take them in. Instead, Johns decided to get the wallet out and pay for the goods himself – she might have stolen, but that does not mean that her son should need to go without.

Good Deed Goes Viral

Very quickly, people took to social media to share a positive story about a police officer doing a great, charming and selfless deed. The public hopped onto the story and the goodwill that it generated as absolutely outstanding. The PD Facebook page became inundated with kinds works and respectful thanks for the Officer, having made a positive difference while giving a valuable lesson to the mother.

OK, she was still a criminal – but not everyone commits crimes out of bad intentions. This lady wanted to help her infant son out but didn’t have enough money to do so. Should her child suffer because her economic situation is so bad? Some heartless folks may say yes, but we say otherwise.

While we are used to hearing bad stores about the cops of this world, the showcase rolled on and everyone was happy to promote a positive, heart-warming story about a police officer who was happy to give out a little advice but not leave her and her son empty-handed.

Speaking to Fox News, PD Chief Richard Mclaughlin, was very positive and enthusiastic about what he had seen along the way. He said that he was proud of all of his officers, but “particularly this one.”

Just remember, then, that not every copper is a crook and not everyone who has to help themselves is a criminal. Don’t judge a book by its cover and all that; sometimes, our actions are fed by a desperation to help others rather than ourselves. That’s majorly apparent reading this story. Well done, Officer!

Remember lovable nerd Screech in the sitcom Saved By The Bell? The role was played convincingly by Dustin Diamond from the late 1980’s all the way to the early 1990’s. But 2006 proved to be a challenge to Dustin when he released a sex tape that had a title similar to his Saved By The Bell character. The tape saw Screech in compromising and un-sexy scenes.

His manager hoped that the tape would help Dustin get back into show business. It didn’t help. When talking about the future, he says: “I’m starting to shift my act towards something more mature. It’s an evolution where I’ve reached that point where I have stuff to pass on to my offspring: ‘Learn from my mistakes. Here’s something stupid Daddy did.'”

Where is Molly Ringwald now?

Molly Ringwald was the quintessential It Girl during the 1980’s. She starred in TV’s “Different Strokes” and “The Facts of Life”.

The years have been kind to The Wonder Years’ Fred Savage

He is now a TV director, husband, and father to three kids.

Macaulay Culkin

After becoming famous in 1990 for the Home Alone movie-turned-franchise, Macaulay lost his way. He did, however, act in other successful films, like ‘My Girl’, but as he grew out of his cuteness, his star faded out.

Lately, he started getting himself back in the saddle, and after announcing a new relationship with actress Brenda Song, we can also find him acting in the new Seth Green’s movie, Changeland.

What happened to Gary Coleman?

Gary Coleman is a pop culture icon thanks to his role as Arnold Jackson in the TV sitcom “Diff’rent Strokes”. He became a household name due to his “What’choo talkin’ `bout, Willis?” line frequently uttered in the show. Unfortunately, he similarly became infamous with his run-ins with the law.

Drew Barrymore is still Hollywood Royalty

She won a Golden Globe for her role in the HBO movie “Grey Gardens”. She is now a mom to two daughters and is married to Will Kopelman.

Flight of the Navigator’s Joey Cramer

The 1986 movie Flight of the Navigator saw child star Joey Cramer play the role of David Freeman, a boy abducted by an alien spacecraft. The role earned him a nomination from the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror Films for ‘Best Performance by a Young Actor’ in 1987.

These days she makes appearances here and there, such as on season three of Food Network’s Rachael vs. Guy: Celebrity Cook-Of in 2014. She has also opened her own clothing boutique.

Johnny Depp

We all know Johnny Depp. The Pirate, the lover, the eccentric, Depp has managed to embody just about every different kind of character in his acting career, and it’s no wonder he is considered one of the greatest actors in our generation.

But all that started way back in the 80’s, when Depp rose to prominence in the TV series ‘21 Jump Street’ in which he became in instant teen idol and heartthrob for girls around the world. However, the experience for Depp was not altogether positive as he felt it pushed him to a certain role of product.

It was from this experience that he decided to only pick roles that he felt challenged him- and judging by the roles he has played since, he stood by his word!

Rob Lowe

Lowe’s career highlights all stemmed from the 80’s. he became a teen idol, starring in films such as ‘The Outsiders’, ‘St. Elmo’s Fire; and About Last Night’.

Since then, one could say his acting career dwindled, with him finding more success in TV roles. His years after were also marred by scandals, including a sex scandal involving him being filmed engaging in sexual activities with a 16-year-old. As of recent years, he has appeared in series such as Code Black, and ‘The Lowe Files’.

Kevin Bacon

Bacon had his first commercially successful role when he starred in the box-office smash ‘Footloose’, which both made him an instant heartthrob, and earned him a wide range of critiques approval.

However, like Johnny Depp, he felt his success in his earlier works led to typecasting and he had difficulty shaking of the image he had garnered in Footloose. As of late, he has appeared in FOX series ‘The Following’.

Tiffany Brissette as V.I.C.I. in Small Wonder

It is difficult to forget the little girl robot V.I.C.I. in the TV sitcom Small Wonder. The show ran for four years and starred Tiffany Brissette as the adorable robot girl.

But unlike many other stars who got stuck in their younger acting stereotype roles, Dillon managed to keep his career going for years to come.

Only in 2015 he starred in the series Wayward Pines, where he portrays an American Secret Service Agent.

Ralph Macchio

Aka, Daniel LaRusso, in the famous Karate Kid series. Every now and then we get to see Macchio in TV series or in a movie or two, but wherever he is, Karate Kid will follow. He can’t shake off the image of that ‘wax on – wax off’ kid with the Crane Move that brought him the winner title in the karate games.

He lives in California, married and has two children. At the 30th anniversary party for the Karate Kid film at the museum of the Japanese American in 2014, Macchio said that the yellow 1947 Ford convertible he drove in the movie is sitting in the garage of his home!

Macchio will go back to play Daniel Larusso once again in a 30-minute, 10-part Karate Kid series for a YouTube channel called Cobra Kai (Mister Miyagi’s nemesis in the movie) in 2018.

Neil Patrick Harris

This incredibly talented, and incredibly funny actor began his road to fame as a child star when he was cast in a drama film ‘ Clara’s Heart’ starring Whoopi Goldberg. His portrayal of David, who comes to trust and depend on Whoopi’s character, earned him major approval from film critiques and set him on his acting path.

We all know Harris’s acting success went from strength to strength, with his most known role as the legendary Barney Stinson, a serial womanizer who has almost a cult-like following due to his crazy antics.

Troop Beverly Hills’ Jenny Lewis

Jenny Lewis was nine years old when she was luckily cast with the legendary Lucille Ball in the sitcom “Life with Lucy” back in 1985. But her big break came in 1989 when she played the role of Hannah in the series “Troop Beverly Hills”. Lewis later had a romantic relationship with David Faustino and Jake Gyllenhall.

Winona Ryder

Although her acting career really hit off in the 1990’s, with her becoming one of the most iconic actresses of that decade, Ryder already burst on the scene as the gothic teenager in Tim Burton’s Beetlejuice, where she first showed off her incredible talent that would only continue from there.

Ryder has played many eccentric, brilliant characters throughout her career since then, but her personal life has been nearly as followed as her professional life. She has always been open with her struggles with depression and anxiety. Her most recent role has been in the incredibly popular Netflix series ‘Stranger Things’, for which she has garnered both Golden Globe and SAG nominations.

1967 – First woman in a marathon


The sixties were a time for a change. Kathrine Switzer was the first woman to finish a Marathon in the year of 1967. As you can see, it wasn’t easy for other competitors. Poor things – A woman in a marathon?! Where has the world come to?! It was the Boston marathon and it was so unheard of that even several of the organizers tried to stop her.

Luckily enough she had a few friends on her side who protected her on her way.

*FYI – She wasn’t the first woman in the marathon, but actually the first registered woman to run. Roberta Louise “Bobbi” Gibb was the actual first woman, but she ran unregistered.

Star R&R: Where Does Sophie ‘Sansa’ Turner Go on Vacation?

When it’s time to go on vacation, we try and find a good combination of location vs. price. It’s obvious that we try as much as we can to have a vacation experience that will last until our next, so sometimes the price is not as important as fun. Some of these celebrities have the same thoughts when picking a vacation destination.

The only difference is that their choices are not as hard as ours. For one, they have more money. Second, they vacation more often than we do, so they can allow themselves to have a “simple” vacation now and then.

So what does the queen of the north do when she wants some time off?

Sansa in the Sun

From the cold lands of Westeros to the sunny beaches of Coco Prive, a private resort in the Maldives, where no King of the North would be able to survive. We know Sophie Turner as Sansa Stark from Game of Thrones, but soon enough we will be seeing much more of her, as future productions will be set free at cinemas near you.

Just like many other celebs having fun on vacation, Sophie needed some sunshine and r&r for herself. So yes, we are jealous.

Intense timetable

Let her rest now, because she is going to be a very busy lady in the coming months running around the country and world for these upcoming films:
Josie and Girl Who Fell From the Sky and Time Freak and the anticipated X-Men: Dark Phoenix.

Now that you’ve seen where Sophie relaxes, check out where other favorite celebrities go on vacation.
