Those of us who have complete senses tend to think that communication might be a real struggle for those with disabilities. We imagine it’s going to be hard to communicate with others without hearing or speaking words.

Well not exactly. Disabled individuals with appropriate training can “talk” to each other without any trouble. They usually use the American Sign Language – and learning the skill brings numerous benefits.

Remember that touching story about 24-year-old Krystal Payne, the Starbucks barista who learned ASL so she can serve deaf customers better? That’s definitely a great thing to do and we do not doubt her simple act made a big difference in the life of others.

Apparently, deaf people also have their own cuss words – just like the rest of us, as shared by YouTube channel Cut. Their obvious advantage, of course, is that they can curse anyone “a little more discreetly,” a Bored Panda article tells us.

Did you try out the ASL swear words yourself? Well, there’s no shame in admitting that.

I know I did – and I’m probably going to share this new-found skill with some of my closest buddies! It would be fun to have some sort of secret code when you want to say some nasty things across, say, a business meeting. Just make sure your boss or colleagues don’t see it – or at least don’t know ASL. That could get you into some real trouble.

Smart Dog Waits For The Green Light Before Crossing The Street

Smarter than some humans? This dog knows exactly when to cross the street!

Traffic lights, also known as stoplights, are installed in major roads to direct vehicular traffic. The main purpose, of course, is to ensure everyone’s safety. As we all grew up, we learned what each of the three colors meant – red is for stop, green is for go, and yellow is for proceed with caution.

And yet the sad fact of the matter is that not everyone follows these simple guidelines. Just ask traffic officers about it and they’ll tell you that, from time to time, they still have to apprehend motorists and pedestrians violating the rules.

Bio-Luminescent Shrimp Makes These Rocks in Japan Look Like They Are Bleeding Blue

They are truly a sight to behold!

Off the coast of Okayama, Japan are boulders that turn electric blue at night. At first glance, it looks something from a sci-fi movie. When you look closer, you'll notice the patterns of the blue streaks are just like tears streaming down, which make the rocks look like they are weeping or bleeding. It would be so darn cool if this is really the case, but then the real reason is definitely as cool - them bluish streaks are actually bio-luminescent shrimp!

Photographers Trevor Williams and Jonathan Galione featured the glowing rocks in their picture series The Weeping Stones. The series captured the beauty of the shrimp, which are also called Vargula Hilgendorfii or sea fireflies.

The shrimp are almost microscopic in size, around 3 mm in length. They live in shallow waters and come out from the sea at night to feed.

Subway Cars in Beijing Transformed Into Moving Libraries

And the best part? There’s no return date for the books!

Commuting everyday can be a drag, especially if you have to take the subway. Not all relish the thought of sitting on long train rides and sharing space with equally bored and weary strangers. Commuting can get so bad it can even take a toll on your health - imagine sharing an enclosed space with people who have colds and other viruses. If your immune system is weak, this is certainly a disadvantage for you.

But if subways all look like these ones in Beijing, we would actually enjoy the daily commute! There are two train lines in the city that have been converted to moving libraries. Hardly original, you may think? There are other modes of transportation, such as trucks and boats, that have been transformed into unconventional libraries, you say?

Well, this Beijing trains are definitely unique!
