He skateboards and plays bass in Trevor’s band. If Greg doesn’t get high, I don’t know who does.

3. Elise Vandernat

She got that tongue ring last year. No way she hasn’t moved on to drugs already.

4. Luke Douglas

Everyone knows this kid is totally hilarious. There’s no way he comes up with that stuff sober.

5. Alison Nguyen

She used to date Brandon, so…

6. Eddy Blass

He may get straight A’s, but Jess Werther says he sold a joint to Kelli Pratt for junior prom, and she’s usually right about this kind of stuff.

7. Rain Jenkins-Gutierrez

Her name’s Rain. Come on.

8. Mr. Epstein

He’s not technically a kid, but there’s no way this guy doesn’t toke up when he’s off the clock.

9. Louis Peters

Haha. There’s no way Louis actually smokes, but can you imagine if he did? We would totally pay money to see that.

These Parents Got Matching Tattoos Of Their Daughter’s Birthmark So She Won’t Feel Different

Love really is more than skin deep. H/T Daily Mirror.

1. This is the Phillips family of Grimsby, England: Tanya, Adam, and their daughter, Honey-Rae.

Michelle Rawlins LTD.

2. Honey-Rae was born with a birthmark that covers a good portion of her body.

Michelle Rawlins LTD.

Tanya told the Daily Mirror: “It is bright red and it covers almost half of the right side of her body. It stretches from her toes to her lower back. It hasn’t faded with time. In fact some days, it looks darker than others.”

Knowing their child might be treated differently, the Phillips decided to take action to help their daughter not feel alone.

3. An incident at a grocery store is what initially prompted them to do something.

Michelle Rawlins LTD.

“I was at checkout, when I saw an old couple whispering and staring at Honey-Rae’s leg. I was distraught. It was the first time I had taken her out without covering her up and it confirmed all my worries and fears,” Tanya told the Daily Mail. People are cruel without even realizing.”

4. The couple already had leg tattoos, but to show solidarity with their daughter they decided to get tattoos that matched her birthmark.

“Most people might think it’s very extreme, but to us, it was the natural thing to do to ensure our daughter never felt different or alone in the world,” Tanya told the Daily Mirror. “We wanted her to feel special, that her birthmark was something to feel proud of and not embarrassed by.”

5. Adam got his tattoo this past Christmas, with Tanya following suit last week. She said the process was tough, but worth it.

Michelle Rawlins LTD.

“It was incredibly painful, especially as I had a flower to cover some old star tattoos, but it was worth every second of the pain,” he told the Daily Mirror. “When the swelling went down, I showed Honey-Rae, and she gently touched it and smiled as she said ‘match,’ pointing to her own leg.”

6. The family stands by their descision, and believe they made the right choice for their daughter.

Michelle Rawlins LTD.

“She now constantly touches mine and Adam’s tattoos, then her own birthmark and giggles – I couldn’t be happier,” Tanya said.

12 Signs You’ll Make A Great Father, But Aren’t Ready Yet


The other day, I was watching “Big Daddy” and, in extremely bizarre fashion, found myself envious of Adam Sandler’s seemingly unfavorable situation.

In case you’ve been trapped under a rock for the past 15 years and haven’t seen the movie “Big Daddy,” the plot revolves around a younger man who, with the help of some creative screenwriting, finds himself raising a young child unexpectedly.

He initially hates all of the responsibilities blanketed under parenting a child, especially by himself, yet, over time, he grows to love the whole fatherhood thing.

While I don’t think I’m going to ask the next woman I have sex with to forgo the whole contraceptive thing and carry a child for the next nine months so I can pull an Adam-Sandler-in-“Big-Daddy” type thing, I’m also not petrified of having children in the same way many Millennials might be.

I look at it as a phase of life, and like anything else, one you shouldn’t run away from, but rather embrace. I’m not sure what it was about watching “Big Daddy” this time around – and not the first 18 times I’d seen it – that made me kind of want a kid, but something about it left me “feeling ready to be a father.”

Maybe not now, but it’s definitely in my five- to 10-year plan. To be honest, I think I would kill it, too.

Every time I’ve stepped inside a Footlocker, and seen one of those miniature pair of retro Jordans (designed for dogs or super young children), I’ve always wanted a reason to buy them. So, even if I were the least practical parent ever to exist, at the very least, my kids would be fresh.

Just kidding. Parenthood is an extremely serious and relevant issue, and one you shouldn’t EVER jump into it prematurely – especially never under the pretense of designer toddler shoes. Unless they were OG infrared XIs. Kidding again.

Thankfully, I have the next five-to-10 years to grow up some more, and mature fully, before making any drastic moves. Here are the 12 signs you’ll be a good father although you’re probably not ready just yet.

1. You respect other people aren’t the same as you.

It’s never bothered you when some of your friends are interested in different things because you still somehow find a way to connect through a shared common ground.

That’s an important aspect of parenting because, while you might like to spend all of your time following sports, your children might grow up adoring classical music instead.

2. You’re extraordinarily patient with others.

Even though long lines at the bagel place on a Saturday morning are never ideal, they don’t knock you off your path… completely.

You understand the importance of patience and letting things run their course, which is why you still find yourself on the couch at night watching the Knicks, despite the fact they don’t win (and fail to cover the spread, too).

3. You excelled as a day-camp counselor.

That one summer when you gave being a “day-camp counselor” a stab was a total grand slam. You low-key enjoyed talking to the kids about sports, considering that’s usually the extent of your conversational scope, and they loved you with the same amount of gusto.

By the end of the summer, you doubled the other counselors’ earnings in tips, too, so having a group of 7-year-olds as the highlight of your social life for three full months certainly paid off in the end.

4. Realistically, you don’t sleep anyway.

If one of the most dreaded parts of parenthood is staying up all night on behalf of your kid, you aren’t all that worried. You’ve got that aspect covered, that’s for sure.

You’ll be up until obscene hours of the night or early morning, anyway. Instead of lying in bored, caught up in your own thoughts, at least now you’ll have something productive to do.

5. You have no trouble tolerating your friends’ stupidity.

Back during your college fraternity days, your friends were getting drunk to the point they couldn’t really speak properly – or avoid making messes out of everything – on a somewhat regular basis and it didn’t usually faze you.

Young children aren’t really any different, except they won’t get hungover, which means they’ll be entirely more pleasant to be around the morning after.

6. You always lead by example.

You’ve never been a follower and you take pride in that. Despite what your friends were doing, you’ve always gravitated toward the things you found interest in, regardless of whether or not the masses agreed.

Over time, people started gravitating toward your attitudes because you at least had a positive outlook on the subject.

7. You naturally provide for others.

Of course it was likely on a much lesser scale – perhaps among your group of friends or something – but there are little signals you’re a good provider to keep track of. Parenting is all about providing.

If you’re usually the one who fronts all of your friends’ tickets and allow them to pay you back at their convenience, it shows you’re attentive to the needs of others.

If you had a girlfriend whom you held down fiscally for a period of time, you’re also better experienced to support others outside of your own self.

8. You connect well with other people.

Whenever your friends are going through some sh*t, you’re usually the first person they come to. You’ve always had a way with words and been able to say the right things whether or not the person you’re telling them to wants to hear them.

It’s a refreshing trait and it allows you to remain approachable even during the most uncomfortable of “talks.”

9. You’re quick to forgive your loved ones.

You don’t believe in grudges. You’d rather hash things out with people up front and avoid hours, or even days, of awkward, avoidable silence. Regardless of what amount of wrong someone might have done against you, you’re usually open to finding the right way to make up for it – especially with regard to people you love.

10. You’re responsible.

Although you do like to splurge on things from time to time, you don’t spend money extravagantly, and never for the wrong reasons.

While you might’ve spent some extra money on that new iPhone, you also make sure you never drop it, and even if you did, you were prepared with a sturdy case, just in case.

11. You demand respect through your actions.

You demand respect, but rarely have to use any words to do so. It’s seen through your actions and confidence. People would never try crossing you or taking advantage of you, and it’s not out of any type of intimidation; it’s out of respect to you and the morals on which you stand.

12. You’re always open-minded.

Sure, you might’ve tried pot, and found it didn’t kill you. You’re open-minded about life and always are willing to experience things first before judging them.

Even during those times when you might not initially be fond of the things your friends are suggesting or saying, you respect their opinions and remain open-minded about them.

Samsung Opens Solar-Powered Internet Schools in Africa


Old shipping containers repurposed into solar-powered classrooms are giving students in the most remote parts of Africa access to education and innovation.

Samsung’s Solar-Powered Internet Schools Initiative brings mobile classrooms filled with gadgets to rural towns like Phomolong, home to about 5,000 to 10,000 people. By outfitting a mobile shipping container with desks, a 50-inch electronic board, Internet-enabled solar-powered notebooks, Samsung Galaxy tablet computers and Wi-Fi cameras, children can receive a technology-rich education without traveling far.

“I have this motivation in me. It’s this need to just grow up and become something better in life and help others to become a success so that in South Africa, or in the whole continent of Africa, we can have a better life,” a Phomolong Secondary School student named Lefa told us in a video by the Samsung Corporate Social Responsibility team.

For her, the computer lab presents an opportunity to “learn all the things” she’s ever wanted to learn.

Each 12-meter portable classroom has space for up to 21 students to learn how to use computers and how to surf the Internet, many for the first time. Samsung is working with local educators, content developers, school administration and management to integrate the Internet Schools into local communities. For more information, watch the video above.

The pilot program will bring mobile classrooms to K-12 graders in five African countries including South Africa, Kenya, Nigeria, Senegal and Sudan. The project will expand in upcoming years. The technology giant hopes to reach 2.5 million students in Africa by 2015.

What roles do you think technology, gadgets and the Internet can play in education? Tell us your thoughts in the comments.

4-Year-Old Hockey Player Helping Her Opponent Up Is Beyond Adorable (Video)

We’ve all heard the term, “There’s no ‘I’ in team.”

The phrase is meant to communicate that to be a successful team member, you must not be selfish; working together with teammates instead of competing against one another is the key to success.

One amazing little girl took this lesson to heart while playing against a rival hockey team.

Four-year-old Amara was always the tiniest player on her bench, often having to be lifted onto the ice because of her small size.

One day, Amara’s team, the Gore Bay Tykes, played against a rival team from Manitowaning, which had a player even tinier than Amara: 3-year-old Arabella.

During the game, little Arabella fell to her knees and couldn’t get up.

While the rest of the players skated around the girl’s tiny body as she struggled to get on her feet, Amara — though an opponent — skated over to her fallen comrade and helped her up when nobody else would.

This display of camaraderie is remarkable for anyone, but for a 4-year-old, it’s absolutely amazing.

Congratulations to little Amara’s parents for instilling beauty and kindness in their daughter at such a young age.

Watch the video up top to see the heartwarming moment.

The 5 Most Affordable Places To Raise Your Kid If You Can Already Tell Theyre Going To Be A Fuckup

Looking for the perfect place to settle down? These five cities are diamonds in the rough for any parent whose kid is clearly going nowhere.

1. Toledo, Ohio

With high salaries and low housing prices, Toledo brings incredible value to the table. The schools arent great, so if you already know your kids ceiling is pretty low, Toledo might just be your dream city.

2. Denton, Texas

The Lone Star States 25th-most populous city is an unsung haven for anyone whose kid has underachiever written all over them. Denton boasts short commutes, affordable public transit, and plenty of gas station parking lots for your dimwitted son or daughter to hang out in all summer long.

3. Shreveport, Louisiana

Buffalo offers all the perks of city living on a budget, and with graduation rates hovering around 53 precent, your kid can drop out of high school and still fit right in while your family enjoys low real estate taxes and a couple of parks.

5. Wichita, Kansas

Via wichita-kansas.net

Their symphony recently got a pretty bad review, but honestly, that should only factor into your decision if youre certain you have a kid worth bringing to the symphony. Youre gonna have to do a gut check on this one. Maybe if your kid really has their act together, its worth shelling out for St. Louis, but otherwise, dont overthink it. Wichita is plenty.

These 15 Kids Are Absolutely Way Too Cool For School

When I was a little tot, I was pretty weird. I’d hide in cupboards and cling to my mom’s pant leg whenever I went anywhere new or met anyone for the first time. I definitely wasn’t one of those confident cool kids.

Then again, even the children I aspired to be like (who killed it at hopscotch and had tons of awesome toys) couldn’t hold a candle to these awesome kids. They’re on a whole other level…

1. “Just hangin’ with my groupies.”

View post on imgur.com

2. No matter how many times I try, I will never master this.

3. Just a casual day on the playground.

4. This is how all the cool kids park their bikes.

5. Friends call him Little Bird.

6. “Wake me up when Minnie gets here.”

7. He knows how cool he is.

8. “Todd, I thought I fired you last week?”

9. My best dance move is the shopping cart.

10. I wouldn’t want to get on this kid’s bad side.

11. “I call her Betsy.”

12. I’m jealous of so many things here.

13. They’re probably jamming to this kid’s sick beats.

14. He knows all the important letters.

15. “Yo…we done here? I got places to be.”

My inner child (and maybe even my adult self) are incredibly jealous of these kids.

…Mostly because this was basically me as a kid. Nailed it.

A 3 Year Old Girl Desperately Wanted Snow In The South. So Her Epic Dad Did THIS.

People in South Carolina don’t exactly get snow very often. But that didn’t stop this man from creating his very own snow, so his kids could enjoy playing in snow for the very first time. He got the idea after his 3 year old daughter fell in love with the movie ‘Frozen’. Bound and determined that his daughter and son would be able to see snow and make their very own Olaf snowman he decided to do some research into creating snow. The result was nothing short of magical.

“Last weekend we had some cold weather so I decided to do some testing behind my shop with the 6 nozzle internal mix set-up that a few of the guys at the shop and myself put together.”

“Conditions were perfect at 17 degree’s and we made roughly 21″ of snow overnight. To make a long story short, wet bulb temperatures of 21-27 degree’s will make ‘wet snow’ and temps below 20 deg will make nice dry/powdery snow.”

“On Tuesday night Charleston got a lousy 60 minutes of light snowfall and an entire ice storm that left everything frozen over at 26 degree’s.”

“The entire neighborhood was completely confused as they drove by our house on Thursday morning.”

“The look on my children’s faces was priceless.”

“Needless to say, my children loved it! I know everyone from up north will think I’m an idiot for doing this.”

No sir, you’re never an idiot when you do things for your kids. Father of the year more like it! Source
