28 People Who Really Know What It Feels Like To Be #Blessed.

Every person in the world knows what it’s like to just miss the mark. Maybe you got to McDonald’s at 10:35 AM, so you won’t get breakfast. Or maybe your DVR cuts off the last few minutes of your favorite reality TV show. Close calls can make anyone’s blood boil, when they leave you out in the cold.

Like most things in life, though, close calls can be a two-sided coin.

These examples prove that sometimes it’s better, and even life-saving, to juuuust barely miss something.

1. This hole in one.

2. This semi that wanted to say hey.

3. This shark trying to photobomb tourists.

4. This baseball player who forgot what direction the ball is supposed to go.

5. This pedestrian who’s never been happier to see a light pole.

6. This tripped up train observer.

7. This train enthusiast with little common sense.

8. This guy who may or may not have pissed off the person in charge of signs.

9. This minor crash that could have made conditions even icier.

10. This disappointed sea creature.

11. These skippers who skimmed each other.

12. This lucky guy who will make his delivery on time.

13. This woman sheltered by more than her umbrella.

Heh: Guess who was on the Cuba flight that Snowden ditched [pic]

Bada-Zing!

Journalists live-tweeted photos and reports from the flight to Cuba that NSA leaker Edward Snowden was reportedly due to be on. Instead, journos were trapped on the flight with an empty seat. Or were they? You see, other Twitter users also spotted President Obama on the flight.

Yikes.

He’s not getting any sympathy from this tweeter:

But then, maybe he doesn’t really need it:

An Old Man On Crutches Just Out-Danced Everyone On Earth.

Getting old can really stink. Everyone does it, but not everyone looks forward to it. You don’t move around well, forget things, and even have to use canes and crutches. The worst thing has to be that everyone assumes you’re fragile, and can’t do anything. They will that that, at least, until one day you can’t take it anymore. You’ll give everyone a shock they’ll be talking about for weeks (which is just what this gentleman did). You won’t believe how…

Wandering onto the dance floor, this old man suddenly wanted to act the age he still felt in his heart. Which of course was the same age he used to bust a move.

Throwing away his crutches, he literally stole the show, and our hearts.

You know you want to see more… oh so much more:

 

//

(H/T: Her.ie) Bravo sir, bravo! We can’t stop smiling at your love of life and music. We only hope to be just as adventurous come your age. Share this with your friends below and they’ll be smiling all the way to the dance floor.

‘Faux News’ haters slam Rob Lowe for watching Fox News

http://twitter.com/#!/RobLowe/status/263062676194873344

On Monday evening, actor Rob Lowe tuned in to Fox News to watch Shepard Smith’s coverage of Sandy after the storm made landfall. While Shep Smith has critics on both sides of the aisle, it was the oh-so-smart and totally tolerant “Faux News” haters who blasted Lowe for daring to flip the channel to Fox.

@roblowe Shep Fox News is your channel? I guess U vote Romney. No wonder it was so tough for you to play the brilliant Sam Seaborn,

— BWD (@theonlyadult) October 29, 2012

The nerve of Lowe, watching anything other than MSDNC!

Lowe did not endorse Romney (or anyone else, for that matter), though some do suspect that his presidential vote went to the GOP nominee.

@roblowe Fox News? You’re an asshole.

— Jerry Reilly (@jrryreilly) October 29, 2012

@roblowe Faux News

— Gern Blansten (@johnjcpa) October 30, 2012

@roblowe Watching FauxNews? That channel is pure scripted Hollywood entertainment #fixnews

— MichaelJHill (@MichaelJHill) October 29, 2012

@roblowe Can’t believe you watch Fox “News”, even Shep Smith. That network has absolutely zero credibility. Are U watching them for laughs?

— Dan Nannen (@bartlet4amer) October 29, 2012

Lowe dished it back to one particularly obnoxious follower.

“@highwaystarrrr: @roblowe Why the fuck are you watching that channel?”I watch all channels. MY brain can take it.

— Rob Lowe (@RobLowe) October 29, 2012

As Twitchy has reported, Lowe also tunes in to CNN, though it’s often to take swipes at the anchors. Sadly, Piers Morgan is proud of that.

@roblowe @highwaystarrrr ..and he’ll be switching to CNN at 9pm, right Rob?

— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) October 29, 2012

But Lowe kept his response classy.

“@piersmorgan: @roblowe @highwaystarrrr ..and he’ll be switching to CNN at 9pm, right Rob?”Always, my friend.

So This 3 Year Old Boy Went Missing Recently. You’ll Never Guess Where He Was Found, LOL.

We’ve all seen this somewhat of an urban legend in movies, TV shows or cartoon. A child climbs inside one of those claw crane machines in an arcade to get a toy from inside and gets stuck. Well it might not be such an urban legend after all, since that’s exactly what happened recently in Lincoln, Nebraska.

According to KETV 7, this little boy is safe after climbing into and getting stuck inside a claw crane machine at a bowling alley in Lincoln, NE. Lincoln police said it started when the boy’s mother discovered he was missing from their apartment and after a frantic search notified police.

After receiving the call Lincoln police immediately began searching for the missing child when Madsen Bowling and Billiards, which is across the street from the boy’s home, discovered him inside the arcade machine.

Soon after, the mother was reunited with the child, who is doing just fine and was not distressed by the whole ordeal. The vendor even gave the boy a stuffed animal from the machine.

Watch KETV’s news report on the incident here below: [youtube id=”x48oYZd38LE” width=”600″ height=”340″ position=”left”] I think this little boy might just have found the only way to win a toy from those claw style machines. Source: KETV Share this unusual story with your friends below.
