Normally, disputes between neighbors are settled diplomatically through meetings and interventions. There’s nothing wrong with this at all and if you’d ask me, it’s the best way to fix issues. No one gets hurt and peace is restored in the neighborhood. But this guy doesn’t believe that merely talking through the problem is enough so he came up with a way to settle disputes the Fight Club way.

Chris Wilmore of Harrisonburg, Virgina took cues from Tyler Durden and friends and founded Streetbeefs, which is a form of a real-life fight club that settles disputes via good old fashioned fist-fighting. Wilmore, who was a former convict, was emotionally traumatized in 2013 when his close friend was shot to death on Christmas Eve. Known around the neighborhood as Scarface, he decided to come up with a way to end gun violence in his community.

Wilmore organized Streetbeefs, a real-life fight club that aims to settle disputes.

Streetbeefs started with Wilmore recruiting people with issues and letting them take it all out in the backyard. He instructs the participants to wear boxing gloves and to follow a set of rules.

“These guys are really angry at each other and if these guys don’t come here and solve it with their gloves, they may end up killing each other.” Wilmore explains.

Microsoft founder Bill Gates once said “I will always choose a lazy person to do a difficult job… Because he will find an easy way to do it.” Perhaps the story below perfectly shows us that very thin line that divides laziness and brilliance.

This is about an unnamed programmer who wrote a bunch of software scripts to automate several tedious tasks – such as replying to a client, sending messages to his wife, and even making coffee. His secret codes were finally discovered by former coworkers after he left his job for another company.

For some men, there's nothing impossible when it comes to getting a lady’s attention, and when talking about marriage proposals, some of them are even willing to go the extra mile just to make sure they get a "yes."

Romantic dinners and exotic getaways are just some of the usual methods that a guy would use when proposing to his girl. However, there are those who have gone as far as traveling a whole country to spell out the words “Marry Me” using a GPS tracker and even publishing a book of love. These amazing wedding proposals will surely make guys think long and hard and the ladies dream that it may also happen to them one day.

Right in the middle of traffic!

Road rage is ugly. It can make people do something rash, stuff they wouldn't normally do if they aren't stuck in hellish traffic or dealing with bull-headed drivers. We've seen drivers punch and kick each other when road rage sets in, but this is the first time I've seen drivers go on a "duel" right in the middle of traffic.

Nope, they didn't have actual broadswords or a katana with them. These drivers in Austin, Texas made use of the stick and baseball bat stored in their cars.
