Two women an invent invisible bike helmet. You silly humans will never spot it.

Two Swedish women invented an invisible helmet for bike riding and let's see if you can spot it. Silly humans. OK, try squinting your eyes then. Fooled you!

Actually Anna Haupt and Terese Alstin fooled you.

According to their site: 
The idea of developing a new type of cycle helmet was a response to the introduction of a law on mandatory helmet use for children up to the age of 15 in Sweden, which triggered a debate on whether cycle helmets should be mandatory for adults too. Anna and Terese saw their master’s thesis as an opportunity to find out whether it would be possible to develop a cycle helmet that people would be happy to wear – whether they had to or not.
See it yet?

This woman about to go in for surgery to have both breasts removed, does something amazing (video)

Yesterday Deborah Cohan went into surgery to have her breasts removed but before the operation, she did something amazing. Just before going under the knife in the operating room Cohan, an Ob/Gyn and mom of two, began dancing with her medical team in the operating room of Mt. Zion Hospital in San Francisco.

 The Huffington post reports, "This inspiring 6-minute-long video of the fete, posted on YouTube, shows Cohan busting some serious moves as she wiggles and twerks to Beyonce’s hit “Get Me Bodied.” Cohan requested that friends and family make videos of themselves dancing to Bey too so that she could watch them during her recovery. “I have visions of a healing video montage,” she wrote. “Nothing brings me greater joy than catalyzing others to dance, move, be in their bodies. Are you with me people?”


She's an inspiration.

How kids react to gay marriage after seeing videos of same-sex proposals

This new video is circulating on the Internet and it's priceless. A group of kids aged 5-13, are asked their opinions about same-sex marriage after watching two videos of same-sex proposals.

One of the kids offers this thought, "If one person should be able to do something then everybody else should be able to do it."

This is why I love kids so much; they're honest and haven't been swayed by societal or religious views. At least not yet.
