We laugh and scorn at those emaciated-looking supermodels who make us want to shove cheeseburgers down their throats. We ridicule how they supposedly starve themselves just to be able to walk down the runway and keep their glamorous jobs. But when I watched this utterly heartbreaking video about this teenage girl who suffered from a serious case of anorexia, it’s like a slap in my face telling me that disease this is no laughing matter.
According to the National Eating Disorders Association, 20 million women in the U.S. suffer from this crushing eating disorder. Men are not prone to this disease – there are 10 million men who have been diagnosed with anorexia nervosa. These people, young and old, are faced with this immense pressure to look perfect, resulting to unhealthy obsessions with their weight.
Check out this story of a 15-year old and her downward spiral from a beautiful, healthy teenager to a skeletal version of herself.
Looking at the images made me cry. I never imagined that someone could get THAT thin. I pity this pretty girl who thinks that she need to starve herself just to look good and gain the approval of others. It made me feel sorry for laughing at those starved-looking girls and those overweight ones who struggle everyday with their self-esteem. I applaud this girl for her bravery in showing us that anorexia is real and that people like her need all the help and support they can get from us.
Please, please share this video and let others become aware of the effects of anorexia and the importance of helping people who have it.
Purr Evil: Sinister Cat Did the Most Wicked and Yet So Hilarious Thing to His Owner.
This cat is sinister! Just another reason why I love these little vindictive creatures!
I absolutely love cats. They’re absolutely delightful to look at and my heart just melts when they rub their soft fur against my legs. When they start meowing, I have no choice but to give in to their demands. But I have to admit that they can be the nastiest creatures when they are not in the mood. They can do the meanest things to their helpless, adoring owners.
Take this Persian cat, for instance. Jennifer Morales was busy watching TV when her cat jumps to the coffee table and swipes the remote control from the surface. Not contented with what he just did, he focused his attention on the glass candle holder. Watch what he did as Jennifer pleaded “Noooooo!”

This Little Boy’s Dog Was About to Be Put Down. His Response STUNNED Them.
The most heartbreaking thing I’ve ever read. But I love it.
Remember the pain of losing your first pet? While most of us cried buckets of tears like John Grogan’s family in the heartwarming film Marley and Me, some people like this 6-year-old kid knows a thing or two about letting go.
When Belker, a 10-year-old Irish Wolfhound, was diagnosed with cancer, its veterinarian told its owners that it had to be put down since there’s nothing much they can do for the poor dog. Its owner, 6-year-old Shane, was allowed by his parents Ron and Lisa to witness the heartbreaking procedure thinking that he could learn something from the experience.
Of course, everyone would expect that there would be lots of sobbing in situations like this....
Photographer Saw This Alien-looking Thing in Antarctica and his Jaw Just Dropped.
They are a stunning insight into an almost alien world.
Last month, designer and filmmaker Alex Cornell went to Antarctica on an expedition. He’s already a seasoned traveler and photographer, so he’s used to seeing awesome things during his trips. But even a man who’s used to seeing so much beauty got stunned with what he saw while cruising the frigid waters.
Resembling a big-ass Kryptonite in the middle of the ocean is a flipped iceberg, its polished crystal blue surface gleaming in the sunlight.
Seeing an iceberg is one thing, but seeing a flipped one is definitely more major since it’s a very rare occurrence. Most of the icebergs we see in pictures are snowy white but what Alex saw has a sparking azure color that makes it look like a giant galactic artifact. Experts say that the iceberg must be extremely ancient and its age could be anything from tens to thousands of years....
