On August 24, 2015, 11-year-old Kolya Nizhnikovsky's life was suddenly shattered to pieces.
Kolya, who comes from the Ukrainian city of Mariupol, was living through the war that broke out between Ukraine, Russia, and pro-Russian forces within the country. But everyday life continued fairly normally and that day Kolya was playing outside with his friends, as usual. In addition to Kolya the group consisted of 11-year-old Sasha and his 10-year-old brother Serezha, as well as Kolya's four-year-old brother Danya. The boys wanted to take advantage of the good weather to play their favorite game: sneaking as close to the military base as possible. Even though the old barracks looked mostly empty and the adventure seemed pretty harmless, it gave the boys a big thrill. 

This woman just wanted to crack a one-time joke. Three months later, the results are incredible!

Preacher tries to baptize a drunk in the river, but the man’s response has him in shock

A man is stumbling through the woods, totally drunk, when he comes upon a preacher baptizing people in the river.
He proceeds into the water, subsequently bumping into the preacher. The preacher turns around and is almost overcome by the smell of alcohol, whereupon, he asks the drunk, “Are you ready to find Jesus?”
The drunk shouts, “Yes, I am!”
So the preacher grabs him and dunks him in the water. He pulls him back and asks, “Brother, have you found Jesus?”
The drunk replies, “No, I haven’t found Jesus.”
The preacher, shocked at the answer, dunks him again but for a little longer. He again pulls him out of the water and asks, “Have you found Jesus, brother?”
The drunk answers, “No, I haven’t found Jesus!”
By this time, the preacher is at his wit’s end and dunks the drunk again – but this time holds him down for about 30 seconds, and when he begins kicking his arms and legs about, he pulls him up.
The preacher again asks the drunk, “For the love of God, have you found Jesus?!”
The drunk staggers upright, wipes his eyes, coughs up a bit of water, catches his breath, and says to the preacher, “Are you sure this is where he fell in?”

Her dad thought it was the placenta. They didn’t realize the baby had a hole in her head.

Christie Puyk and her husband Keith Miller live in the beautiful city of Melbourne, Australia. The couple was overjoyed when they found out Christie was pregnant with their first child. Their daughter Michaella was born on Christmas Day last year. However, what appeared to be a normal birth soon proved otherwise.

She's guilty of assault but tells judge there were 'extenuating circumstances' - too funny!

While conducting some business at the Court House, I overheard a lady, who had been arrested for assaulting a Mammogram Technician, say, “Your Honor, I’m guilty, but…..there were extenuating circumstances.”

The female Judge said, sarcastically, “I’d certainly like to hear those extenuating circumstances.” I did too, so I listened as the lady told her story.
“Your Honor, I had a mammogram appointment, which I actually kept. I was met by this perky little clipboard carrier smiling from ear to ear and she tilted her head to one side and crooned, “Hi! I’m Belinda! All I need you to do is step into this room right here, strip to the waist, then slip on this gown. Everything clear?”
I’m thinking, “Belinda, try decaf. This ain’t rocket science.” Belinda then skipped away to prepare the chamber of horrors.
With the right side finished, Belinda flipped me (literally) to the left and said, “Hmmmm. Can you stand on your tippy toes and lean in a tad so we can get everything?” Fine, I answered.
I was freezing, bruised, and out of air, so why not use the remaining circulation in my legs and neck to finish me off? My body was in a holding pattern that defied gravity (with my other breast wedged between those two 4-inch pieces of square glass) when I heard and felt a zap!
Complete darkness, the power was off!
Belinda said, “Uh-oh, maintenance is working, bet they hit a snag.” Then she headed for the door.
“Excuse me! You’re not leaving me in this vise alone are you?” I shouted.
Belinda kept going and said, “Oh, you fussy puppy…the door’s wide open so you’ll have the emergency hall lights. I’ll be right back.”
Before I could shout NOOOO! she disappeared.
And that’s exactly how Bubba and Earl, “maintenance men Extraordinaire” found me…half-naked with part of me dangling from the Jaws of Life and the other part smashed between glass!
After exchanging a polite, ‘Hi, how’s it going’ type greeting, Bubba (or possibly Earl) asked, to my utter disbelief, if I knew the power was off.
Trying to disguise my hysteria, I replied with as much calmness as possible, “Uh, yes, I did but thanks anyway.”
“OK, you take care now,” Bubba replied and waved good-bye as though I’d been standing in the line at the grocery store.
Two hours later, Belinda breezes in wearing a sheepish grin.
Making no attempt to suppress her amusement, she said, “Oh, I am sooo sorry! The power came back on and I totally forgot about you! And silly me, I went to lunch. Are we upset?”
And that, Your Honor, is exactly how her head ended up between the clamps….”
The judge could hardly contain her laughter as she said, “Case Dismissed!”

McDonald's Worker Fired For Adding This To Cop's Soda

An employee has been fired from a Kansas McDonald's after two police officers said they were served soda mixed with mustard.
Kansas GOING BLUE, a Facebook group, first posted a photo of the laced drink on Nov. 27, saying: "A McDonald's here in Kansas just served a Law Enforcement Officer on duty a Dr Pepper with Mustard in a drive thru order. This is extremely unacceptable!!"
The District Attorney's office is opening a criminal investigation into the matter, and the individual accused of putting the mustard in the officers' drinks has been removed from the store, reports KSNT.
One Kansas Highway Patrol trooper had a similar experience once before at the same McDonald's location in Topeka, Kansas, in which they were also served a soft drink with mustard in it, the highway patrol said.
According to location supervisor Gary Vaughn, management had already handled the incident internally. He did not specify beyond that, though the franchise's owners provided more information in a statement in which they said that they were "shocked at the isolated actions of a single employee."
"All customers, including local law enforcement officers who protect and serve our communities, are always welcome at our restaurants," Tom and Marilyn Dobski of McDonald's Franchisees in Topeka explained in the statement, according to KSNT.
"Immediately upon learning of this complaint, we began our own internal investigation to gather the facts ... This employee no longer works for our organization. We proudly support police officers and all divisions of first responders at our restaurants across northeast Kansas."
As the dynamic between police and civilians remains tense across the nation, this is just one of many reports from officers that fast food employees are tampering with their orders.
In August, an 18-year-old Subway worker was arrested in Utah after allegedly lacing a police sergeant's soft drink with methamphetamine and THC, causing the officer to become incapacitated while driving, notes KSTU.

This Looks Like Just A Weirdly Decorated Cake. But Watch What Happens Once It Starts Spinning. WHOA!

Long gone are the days when a cake had to just look pretty and taste delicious.Now cakes are taking on a whole new level as they begin to entertain people too.
But this chocolate cake brings animation right back to where it started. One image at a time. You’ve got to watch the video below to see what I’m talking about…
The cake in this video, known as a “zoetrope cake,” actually isn’t the only one out there. Artists Alexandre Dubosc has made zoetrope cakes his specialty.
What are they you ask? Well these cakes actually use animation technology that existed before film. A zoetrope was a metal cylinder with slits cut in the side where a sequence of drawings would be inserted. The cylinder spins and the drawings take on a life of their own – just like a flip book.
Dubosc has made numerous zoetrope cakes – even some inspired by Tim Burton films.
In the video below, you’ll see a couple different animations in this layer cake. At the bottom you’ll see Pacman eating a dot. There’s a popcorn device launching it up to a hungry mouth. And on the next layer, a fire rages.
What an amazing cake creation! I can’t believe Dubosc has mastered this unique type of art.
SHARE this post with friends if you wish you could have a slice of this cake!

This NFL Commercial Left America SPEECHLESS. What It Says About Farmers? I Fought Back Tears!!

As huge of an event Super bowl is, often it’s the commercials that get the most attention and we can’t help but share what was in our opinion one of the best Super Bowl ads that ever appeared on TV. There’s no action, no special effect, no comedy, just a simple monologue about people who are the backbone of our country. It manages to be as patriotic as football itself and I’ve never felt so proud of being an American.
God bless our farmers. They need more recognition than they get.

Teen Son Is Rejected Before Homecoming Dance. But When A Stranger Shows Up, Mom Loses It

Daniel asked a lot of girls to homecoming, but unfortunately was turned down left and right. At 17-years-old, Daniel knows that his Down Syndrome is a challenge for others, and as a result he has felt stigmatized by peers.
It would be Kylie, a 10th grader, who decided to step up to the plate and ask Daniel to go to homecoming! Turns out Kylie is different than other students in that she doesn’t believe that kids with challenges or disabilities are different from anyone else.
Daniel’s mother was shocked at the gesture by Kylie. She loved how Kylie refused to see that a “disability” should define Daniel. The local news were also moved by this wonderful girl and decided to surprise them!
Check out this wonderful video!

Yes, they were escorted in a Rolls! Down the red carpet the two superstars walked and they ended up having a spectacular night!

He was paddling in the Open Sea When his Drone Captured Something Incredibly Rare!

This is probably the coolest video I’ve seen all week!
The deep sea definitely holds many secrets. Secrets that we may never uncover. There are many creatures we’ve probably never seen our lives, while there are a few who show themselves unexpectedly—like this pod of 30-ton whales who showed themselves for a while in this epic video.
Just as Hawaii’s idyllic weather beckons to tourists around the world, the warm shallow waters (less than 600 feet) surrounding the main Hawaiian Islands are a favourite destination for humpback whales. And if you’re lucky, you might be able to spot one or two if you’re patient enough!

Fortunately for this guy, his drone captured something incredibly beautiful and rare. As he was paddling in the open sea, four 30-ton whales swam silently below him—a truly astonishing sight! Isn’t it just breath-taking?


The boss flipped out when he saw someone twiddling his thumbs. But his triumph was short-lived.

The new manager notices a young man breaking his rules and takes drastic action.
