Guy Drops His Phone In River. 2 Weeks Later, It Mysteriously Started Posting Selfies On Facebook

Apparently, Nathan Buhler’s missing smartphone plays ping-pong. And drives a truck!

Losing your phone can be a huge pain – especially if you have a lot of data in it.

Nathan Buhler, however, just shrugged it off when he accidentally dropped his smartphone into the Bow River while rafting. The incident happened last August 2 and the 29-year-old guy did not even bother getting it. Besides, why dive and swim into a river just for a phone, right?

However, something weird happened two weeks after that.

Nathan Buhler dropped his phone in a river. Surprisingly, it started posting pics on Facebook.

Nathan had the surprise of his life when his girlfriend told him his Facebook started positing photos on his social media account. What makes the updates unusual though is that the phone literally posted selfies of itself on the web.

And it’s really freaking hilarious!

The smartphone is seen cooking in the kitchen on this one.

Apparently, the device was discovered by Calgary firefighters who decided they wanted to have a little fun while trying to contact its rightful owner. They even nicknamed the phone “Hector Sanchez” just for kicks.

On a statement later made by the City of Calgary, they said “The crew decided to use the unlocked phone’s Facebook account. They hoped that by posting on Nathan Buhler’s, the owner’s, Facebook page, his friends and family would let him know that his phone had been found.”

A joyful reunion! Buhler got his phone back a few days later.

Buhler (and many others) had a good time with the smartphone’s selfie adventures!

The Hospital Window: A Short Story That Sums Up Greed And Selfishness

This will change your outlook in life…

By

There were two men, both seriously ill, who occupied the same hospital room. Although it was difficult for him, one of the men was allowed to sit up in his bed for an hour a day to drain the fluids from his lungs. His bed was next to the room's only window. The other man had to spend all his time flat on his back.

These men talked for hours on end.

They spoke of their wives and families, their homes, their jobs, and their involvement in the military service, and even where they spent their vacations. Every afternoon when the man in the bed next to the window could struggle to sit up, he would pass the time by describing to his roommate all the things he could see outside that one lone window.

How the man in the other bed would live for those one-hour periods where his world would be broadened and enlivened by all the activity and color of the outside world! The window overlooked a park with a lovely lake, the man described. Ducks and swans played on the shimmering water while the children sailed their model boats. Lovers walked arm in arm amid the blooming flowers of every color of the rainbow. Grand old trees graced the landscape, and a fine view of the city skyline could be seen in the distance. As the man by the window described all this in exquisite detail, the man on the other side of the room would close his eyes and imagine the picturesque scene....

This Story Will Make You Think About How You Live Your Life

An eye-opener indeed.

"Beware the barrenness of a busy life".

-Socrates

Having goals in life is never a bad thing, especially now that we live in such a fast-paced and results-oriented world where much is expected of us. However, at some point of your existence, have you ever felt that you were just going through the motions of life just to reach the finish line?

Oftentimes, we look forward to the future too much that we tend to lose sight of the present. Be it looking forward to earning a college degree to landing that dream job, we tend to fast-forward the present in order to reach the next milestone. However, the downside to this kind of mindset is that we tend to forget how to live in the present - so much so that we overlook the beauty surrounding us. By the time we notice it, it's already too late to rectify our mistakes....

This Poor Man Was Rejected by A Rich Man’s Daughter. 10 Years Later, He Meets Her Again

The ending of the story is totally unexpected but it will give you a valuable lesson in life.

By

What are the qualities that you look for in a partner? When I was younger, I preferred good-looking and funny men. But as I got older, men who were smart, understanding, and responsible became more attractive for me. I developed this preference because I wanted a loving husband who my future kids could look up to. However, there’s no denying that there are some women who prioritize something else when looking for an ideal partner - those who look for men who can give them anything and everything they want. Because of this, they tend to check the contents of a man’s bank account first before knowing their personality and character.

Such is the case of a popular story circulating online about a man rejected by a rich man’s daughter because he didn’t make enough money to support her lavish lifestyle. Ten years later, the two accidentally bumped into each other. The ending of the story is absolutely unexpected but it will give you a valuable lesson in life.
