Alan Sealls, who works as chief meteorologist over at WKRG has recently been given a “Best Weatherman Ever” trophy after numerous netizens praised him for his calm, soothing voice as he reported about hurricanes Irma, Jose, and Katia. His weather report video later went viral on social media after it went on-air.
Reddit and YouTube netizens admired Sealls for explaining the hurricanes clearly and for his unique approach towards reporting it. People immediately began leaving many positive comments for him.
Meet Alan Sealls: the “best weatherman ever,” according to netizens.
One YouTube user wrote:
“I love how this guy makes a dangerous and scary situation so peaceful and calm. Other channels are like “OH NO WE’RE ALL GONNA DIE”, but this guy doesn’t make my anxiety go berserk.”
Meanwhile, on Reddit, one user said:
“This guy reminded me more of a really good professor than a weatherman. If you get a professor or teacher who explains things this well and with this much confidence, you know you’re in for a good semester.”
“Seriously, that’s the best TV weather guy I’ve seen. They always seem to stumble over their words when they do this. I understood everything he said perfectly.”
Eventually, WKRG responded and awarded him with an appropriate trophy.
The network posted on Twitter:
“We felt Chief Meteorologist Alan Sealls deserved a little something after Reddit named him “Best weatherman ever,” so boom. A trophy it is.”
Actually, Sealls’ talents have already been recognized several times in the past. In his bio on the website, we can read that he has been named “Best Weather Anchor” twice by the Alabama Associated Press Broadcasters Association. He also has a national award from the American Meteorological Society in 2009. Moreover, he also is an eight-time Emmy winner for best weathercaster in the state.
Watch Alan Sealls’ weather reports here:
In an IBTimes article, we learn that Sealls was previously quoted saying:
“People say I get to the point and don’t scare them when something is not as bad as others make it sound. They also say I make it easy to understand, and interesting by explaining stuff they see that they were curious about but never stopped to try to figure out. Of course, I try to have fun with the weather when it is quiet, using silly but memorable phrases to describe it!
“I also get a big kick out of explaining things to people and seeing them ‘get it.’ I’ve figured out that knowledge is one of the few things you can give away but still have the same amount when you are done.”
Well you, sir, are a real legend in the industry. Keep those awesome reports coming!
Woman’s 5-Inch-Long Eyelashes Set a Guinness World Record
Maybe she was born with it, because it sure isn’t Maybelline.
If there’s anything women would love to have on their faces, its probably long and thick eyelashes that frame their eyes and cast shadows on their cheeks. In fact, such is the quest for mile-long lashes that mascara alone comprises a million dollar industry.
Now imagine if one were born with enviously long eyelashes that sets a world record for its length. Like Jianxia of Shanghai, China, for instance.
Her lashes are nearly 5 inches long!
Jianxia must have practiced immense discipline taking care of her eye hair. She’s been growing it so carefully for almost 50 years....
Guy Takes Selfie Every Day for 9 Years, Finally Smiles On His Wedding Day
Well, he has every reason to paint that smile!
Perhaps one of the best things we received from technology is photography. We’re able to save memories, most particularly the special ones. If there’s an event or a milestone, we can simply take our cameras or phones out and take pictures. And when it comes to such topic, selfies are without a doubt the most interesting.
This is exactly what Hugo Cornellier did as he took selfies every single day since 2008. Yes, you read that right – he started taking daily photos of himself 9 years ago when he was still 12. Unlike other kids during that time, he was more into taking pictures than playing video games.
Hugo, who hails from Canada, was inspired by Noah Kalina. The latter basically posted a time frame made up with various self-portraits. Thinking it was cool and unique, he did the same thing and came up with his own project.
Here’s Hugo at the age of 12, looking innocent and, well, so young.
Guy’s Trick Might Be The Dumbest Solution To A Problem But It Actually Worked
It seemed silly but it actually turned out to be genius!
We are often placed in a problematic situation by surprise that we can’t even think of something to resolve it on the spot. When that happens, most of us end up resorting to some dumb solutions that will clearly lead us to disastrous results. Apparently, this isn’t always the ending as seemingly-stupid solutions can work out perfectly for us at times.
The human brain works in mysterious ways. It is the main system that controls our reasoning, but at times, most especially when we are startled, it doesn’t function that efficiently. Apparently, this man had enough mind practices as his genius reasoning got him out of a situation that was supposed to cost him hundreds of bucks.
A lot of Reddit users flocked on a post asking about the dumbest solution that actually worked out.
In a Reddit post, a user that goes by the name Sh0tgunLlama started a forum where he asked: “What is the dumbest solution to a problem that actually worked?” The post received several responses relaying some experiences, but one clearly stood out among those stories....
