kids

Connor Minto of England was standing on the sidelines after having been substituted in a children's soccer game. He was just checkin' out the games surrounding him, when all of a sudden the 11-year-old boy felt as if he had been hit hard by a pebble on the side of his head. A friend of his told him that he had not been hit by a pebble. Turns out that the 11-year-old boy had been shot in the head with a pellet gun and the pellet was lodged in his forehead right above his left eye. The terrified little boy ran to his parents, who I'm sure must have been horrified by what they saw as you will be too.

University rep says, "Latinas are not wired for success," promptly fired

woman

Latinas are many things. We're diverse, driven, strong, and just all around amazing. But it seems one San Jose State University philanthropy board member hasn't gotten the Latinas Are Awesome memo. During a February meeting of the board, member Wanda Ginner had the nerve to say Latinas "do not have the DNA to be successful." Out loud.  In front of the vice president of university advancement. And no one did a thing about it. Until now.

Meerkats

Ever had a day so rough that all you longed for was a hug? Well, apparently, thousands of people feel exactly the same way.

Chicken

A 49-year-old, New York City-based architectural specialist saw the strangest thing on Friday night. It happened right before he was about to bite into a piece of chicken breast his wife had prepared for him. He saw Jesus! And I don't mean he had a divine intervention or anything (or maybe he did). The man literally saw an image of a bearded man that looked just like Jesus on the golden-brown crust of his chicken. Don't believe me? Wait until you see this thing!
