Every Time This Rescue Dog and Tiny Human Cuddle Our Hearts Melt More And More








We're pretty much just a puddle on the floor right now.

English Pointer Nora was rescued seven years before her humans decided to have kids. And now, three little tykes, two rescue dogs, and
two cats later, their family is finally complete. While this might sound like the kind of hectic scenario that's straight out of a reality show,
the family's kids and pets have actually developed a strong bond. In particular, Archie, who is 8-months-old, and Nora are the best of friends,
spending most of the day together, including the cutest daily naps.

This adorable rescue dog and baby duo are so cute, there's simply nothing more we need to say to make them even more adorable. Every
photo we see makes us fall more in love than the last!

All about the Christmas Truce of 1914, in the trenches on the Western Front. Hundreds of thousands
of British and German soldiers laid down their weapons for a day in celebration of the holiday! :D

The Next Best Thing to Being The Rock Is Being The Rock's Dad







Here's the best Dwayne Johnson-related story you'll read all day.


By Matt Miller

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson has a lot of things going for him: He's the world's highest paid actor. He's People Magazine's sexiest man alive.
A highly scientific study concluded he could beat Vin Diesel's (better known as Mark Sinclair) okole in a fight. But it also turns out that behind
those rippling muscles is a heart of gold. He bought his dad a car for Christmas. But a material gift for a man of The Rock's means isn't really
all that interesting. What matters is the story. It's a story about his dad who struggled and raised a kid who ended up being a giant lovable
man worth more than $250 million. Here's what The Rock wrote on Instagram today:

Hostess Just Turned Twinkies and Sno Balls Into Ice Cream








Get ready to lose your chill in the frozen aisle.

Five years ago, we thought we'd have to stockpile our favorite Hostess treats when the brand filed for bankruptcy. They ended up making
the sweetest comeback ever, and have more than made up for putting us on that emotional rollercoaster with delicious riffs on their classics.
(Deep-fried Twinkies, anyone?) Now it's a new kind of convenient-store snacks that are melting our hearts.

This Stay-at-Home Dad Writes Hilarious Parenting Observations on Sticky Notes







... and leaves them around the house for his wife to find!

Leaving reminder notes for yourself around the house and office can become a crucial strategy when the responsibilities of parenthood
threaten to drive you insane. When Chris Illuminati's son was born in 2010, he left his job to become a stay-at-home dad, and his wife
urged him to write down all of his duties so he wouldn't forget.

"As a joke (because I've never taken anything in life seriously), I wrote down even the simplest of tasks and pinned it to my bulletin board,"
Illuminati explained in a blog post. "I forgot all about the note. I also forgot to change the baby."

Robert Irwin, 13-year-old son of Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin, shows Jimmy some animals including
a Binturong named Orville that smells like popcorn, legless lizards and a pair of baby black bears.



- Oh man, after watching this video of Robert, I really miss Steve Irwin. It's amazing how much
Robert is like his father. I'm sure Steve is smiling at how his children have grown up. :dubthum:

Stanislav Petrov, 'The Man Who Saved The World,' Dies At 77










By Greg Myre
September 18, 2017

Stanislav Petrov, a former Soviet military officer, poses at his home in 2015 near Moscow. In 1983, he was on duty when the Soviet Union's early
warning satellite indicated the U.S. had fired nuclear weapons at his country. He suspected, correctly, it was a false alarm and did not
immediately send the report up the chain of command. Petrov died at age 77.

Stanislav Petrov was a lieutenant colonel in the Soviet Union's Air Defense Forces, and his job was to monitor his country's
satellite system, which was looking for any possible nuclear weapons launches by the United States.

He was on the overnight shift in the early morning hours of Sept. 26, 1983, when the computers sounded an alarm, indicating
that the U.S. had launched five nuclear-armed intercontinental ballistic missiles.
