10 Holiday Traditions That Are A Little Odd, But Also Totally Relatable

April 4, 2018

We all party in different ways when the holidays roll around. No matter what you celebrate, your family members probably have a unique (read: weird) tradition that they rope everyone into carrying out year after year.

This Man Was Able To Survive Underwater For 3 Days Before His Rescue

March 29, 2018

Life doesn’t always work out the way you want it to. Maybe you didn’t get that promotion, or maybe, if you’re anything like Harrison Okene, the ship you were working on capsized, sunk, and left you trapped inside of a rapidly shrinking air bubble for three days.

March 26, 2018
