Imagine you’re working in the garden and, all of a sudden, the smallest little newborn squirrel you can imagine falls out. What would you do? Would you even know what to do? That’s what happened to this man, and his story is truly inspiring. We love people who love animals, so he gets the ViralNova seal of approval! The amazing story is in the pictures below. He named him Zip. :)

Zip was found in a bag of mulch.

Dairy Queen Manager Does A Good Deed

A Minneapolis manager at Dairy Queen saw a woman pick up $20 dropped by a visually-impaired man and refused to serve her until she returned it. After she stormed out, he gave the man $20 from his own pocket.

How do you think he should be rewarded for his good deed?

I always try to find some good news in all the bad things that go on in this world so I wanted to share this!
 A now-iconic image has emerged from Monday’s deadly shooting in Washington: A civilian helping a blind colleague exit a building to safety.

NASA Will Pay You $5,000 for Lying in a Bed.......Would you do it????


Saw this article today and all I could think was hmmm who would do this? Let me know in comments if you would! Sorry for some of the language but they are his words not mine, lol :)

Categories: News, Science

You sit around all day playing Candy Crush and bitching on Twitter about how Facebook sucks, so why not get paid a crapload of money while doing that? NASA is recruiting volunteers to lie in bed for 70 days to research the effects of microgravity on the human body.

Volunteers will be able to have visitors and even have access to TV and the internet.

The first part of the study will take place for two weeks while you loaf around, do normal stuff, and let scientists monitor you from time to time.

After that, you'll spend the next 70 days in a tilted bed. There you''ll have light for 16 hours a day, then darkness for eight hours a day.

You can shower but only in bed.

And, as noted above, you'll have access to computers, a TV, books, and the internet. You'll also be allowed visitors. NASA will provide you with food, but only enough to keep you at a constant weight.

Everything is done from your tilted bed, except for when scientists monitor your bone, muscle, and circulation as well as keep tabs on your immune system. There also will be some kind of workout routine called "countermeasure and function testing," which monitors how movements affect muscle size and cardio health.

Basically, the bed study is to help monitor the effects of microgravity, which is the kind of gravity you find in space. This minimal gravity has often made astronauts feel all wonky and crappy when they return to Earth -- basically because of loss of bone density and muscle strength.

And since you use very little gravity already -- except for when you go to the fridge to grab a beer and leftover chicken wings -- NASA figures you'd be a good test subject.

Of course, it's not as easy as it sounds. It's 70 straight days of lying in a bed with little to no activity. OH WHO ARE WE KIDDING THIS AMERICA WE DO THIS SHIT FOR FREE.

The 70 days is followed by a 14-day period where your body is rehabilitated and brought back to the shape you were in before the study.

If you're interested, you can apply for this dream job here.

And then be prepared to place your name among NASA's greatest pioneers, like Armstrong, Glenn, Lovell, and Aldrin... only a lot fatter and lazier and not in any way as heroic.

But otherwise, totally like them.

Camouflage Cupcakes!


Duck Dynasty fans
Here is a recipe for Camouflage Cupcakes.
Be sure to share to your page or tag yourself so you will have the recipe for future reference.

source: Crafty Mama

Camouflage Cupcakes!

Start out with 2 box mixes, one chocolate, one white.
Divide the batter into 4 bowls.
1. White batter.
2. White batter with green food coloring and a dash of chocolate batter.
3. Equal parts chocolate and white batter.
4. Chocolate batter.
Mix the different batters together until you get the colors you want. I ended up with a lot more chocolate batter than the rest of the colors, but I ended up making a few plain chocolate cupcakes to use it up.
Line a cupcake tin with paper liners.
For the batter, you can either use spoons and dump little blobs of each color into each wrapper, or you can get fancy and use pastry bags. I chose to get fancy with bags. It makes filling the cupcakes tins a little easier and a little less messy.
Just drop a bunch of blobs in each wrapper until they’re all about 3/4 of the way full. Bake according to the directions on the box.
Once the cupcakes are done baking, pop them out of the tins so they can start cooling.

Use this recipe for icing.
1. Diving the icing into 3 bowls.
2. Keep one batch white/ivory.
3. The other bowl you will add a little bit of green food coloring and a little bit of cocoa powder until it’s the desired color.
4. The last bowl you will add cocoa powder until it’s the desired color brown.
5. For the fancy swirled icing, take 3 pastry bags.
6. Fill each bag with it’s own color of icing.
7. Take all 3 bags and put them into 1 larger bag with a start tip in it.
Pipe a swirl onto the tops, and you’re done!
