“I feel lucky that I was there fishing, because there was no place for him to go and I don’t know if he could have made it much further.”- Rory O’Connor
O’Connor was stunned at the sight of the brown pup who seemed to have come to ask for his help. He pulled the shivering dog out of the water and noticed that it was badly hurt. The dog, who was later identified as Barney, a Vizsla, had bleeding wounds and it seemed terrified. It crouched precariously in the tiny space behind his rescuer.
The kind man kayaked back towards the shore, stopping every once in a while to ask others if they owned the dog. When they reached the shore, Barney didn’t even want to move. Whether due to exhaustion or trauma, Barney’s legs shook as O’Connor tried to summon him out of the kayak.
O’Connor’s sister was just a few hundred yards away so he called her and they took Barney to a vet, where he was identified through his ID chip.

Apparently, Barney was out jogging with his 53-year-old master, Donna Chen, when they were hit by a drunk driver at a sidewalk in Siesta Key. Petrified by the incident, Barney ran away and jumped into the water where he swam about a mile offshore. Donna Chen did not survive the accident.
Barney was reunited with Chen’s bereaved husband and three children and was able to recover from his injuries. The drunk driver, 22-year-old Blake Talman was arrested by the state police and is now serving time in prison.
Russian Brat Knocked Out by Offended Man After He Offered Him Money to Drink Urine.
Who wouldn’t do anything for money? But given the public humility and ridicule, will your pride and dignity still come with a price tag?
Who wouldn't do anything for money? As desperate as it may sound, most probably nine out of 10 would definitely do anything crazy in exchange of a bag of pennies. But given the public humility and ridicule, will your pride and dignity still come with a price tag?
Apparently, not all shares the same sentiments with regards to money matters. This is most certainly true for a random guy who single-handedly knocked out a rich 16-year-old Russian kid after being offered of $305 in exchange of a glass of his own urine.

The Alchemist’s Letter, A Tragic Tale That Reminds Us The Price Of Pursuing Wealth
An amazing yet tragic tale about an alchemist who invented a machine that can transform any metal into gold.
For many centuries, alchemists have devoted their time, energy, and knowledge in search of the "Philosopher's Stone" otherwise known as "The Sword in the Stone" or "The White Stone by the River", a mythical substance that can turn ordinary metal into pure gold. It is also believed that the stone can provide ultimate enlightenment and immortality.
These alchemists are often illustrated as men who seriously and obsessively work in front of several tubes and flasks, mixing elements and going through great lengths just to create the elusive material. Much like any ordinary men in this modern world, the alchemist in this heartwarming, short story directed by Carlos Stevens, got caught up in his work that he started to neglect his wife and son. His desire for gold and prestige eventually changed him. And although he was finally able to invent the machine that can successfully transform a metal into the purest form of gold, he had to pay a huge price.

This Couple Agreed To Transform Themselves Into Their Old-Age Versions. Their Reactions? Tearful!
More than seeing their physical self change, their emotional side got the best of them!
Growing old is inevitable, and part of the rapid changes are the physical alterations that we have to go through with time. Even though we have all the medical advancements available for our disposal, no age-defying cream can ever hide our age. After all, it is but natural to change and grow old.
We saw a video made by Field Day, which featured a couple who took the risk of transforming themselves into their 50, 70 and 90 year-old selves. Their reactions were priceless! At first, they were laughing at each others' transformations, but soon, tears kept on flowing as they become emotional with their surge of personal realizations.
