Long train rides are no fun. If you know you’ll be having a lengthy journey, it’s best to bring a few things to keep you occupied. Usually, I try to pass the time by reading a graphic novel, playing games on my phone, or browsing my social media feed. Other times, I bring my tablet along and catch up with a movie or TV show I’ve missed. That often does the trick for me.
A couple from China recently went on a 28-hour train trip together as they traveled from Nanning to Qingdao City, Shandong. To battle boredom, they thought of playing a game of cards.
The harmless game went terribly wrong, however, after Mrs. Qiao accidentally dislocated her jaw when she got too excited about the game.
According to her husband, she was laughing and screaming so hard after being dealt a good hand during their card game.
She later noticed a pop in her jaw and immediately realized she couldn’t close her mouth anymore – and it felt awfully painful.
The husband quickly alerted the train staff about his wife’s condition and the train sped to reach Guilin in the shortest possible time.
Upon reaching the city, medical personnel were already waiting and they immediately assessed the middle-aged woman’s condition. She was later brought to the local hospital and after 2 hours of treatment, her jaw was finally put back in place.
Now we know why it’s wiser to maintain a poker face while playing – even when you’re already winning!

This is What Happens When You Leave a Budding Artist Alone with Her Little Brother
Apparently, she was giving him a peanut butter scrub.
All parents know that children go through a stage when they’re wild and extremely curious; therefore, they’re noisy and playful. And no matter how chaotic things are around your home because of these children, there’s nothing much you can do about them. Besides, it's natural for children to experiment and explore their world.
So imagine that weird, uneasy feeling when a house full of rowdy children suddenly becomes very silent. As a mom, you’d probably wonder where the children are, and what in the world are they probably doing?
Gina Gardner Brown felt that kind of feeling. She was home alone with her two kids; Emily, then 3-years-old, and her 18-month-old son, Ethan. Brown soon realized how quiet the kids were so she took her video camera, turned it on, and then went to see what the kids were up to....
