Homeless Woman Buys Puppy after Receiving Money from YouTuber

We really can’t speak for homeless people but many believe that if you’re homeless, then food and shelter should be your top priority just in case you get extra money but one woman proved that sometimes, it’s not the material things that really matter.

YouTuber Das for K3TV Show approached a woman sitting outside a building in Santa Monica, California one day. After a brief conversation, he learned that she’s homeless.

Since the team was actually doing a social experiment that day, Das told the woman he’s giving her $283 cash for her spend on whatever she and her son needed so they won’t have to stretch their finances too thinly.

The woman didn’t want to accept the money at first but Das insisted that she take it. She gave him a hug and expressed gratefulness for receiving the good fortune that day.

Das left the woman but the crew stayed behind, quietly filming what happened next. They trailed the woman to see what she would do with the money.

First, the woman went to a clothing store. She didn’t appear to buy anything from there. Then, she went to a café to indulge in some ice cream before hitting more stores but she did nothing more than do window shopping.

After some time, she went to a quiet part of Santa Monica and the crew watched as she entered an animal shelter. Some 45 minutes later, she came out carrying a puppy! With the money she received that day, she could have gotten clothes and food for her and her son but she chose to adopt a puppy instead.

When Das confronted her, she told him, “I just… I don’t know. Out of everything that I’ve seen today, it seemed much more… caring to have a dog.”

For being compassionate, the show’s producers decided to give her more. They bought supplies for her dog and gave her more money.

The choice received mixed reactions from netizens, with some calling her decision unwise as the dog would surely be another mouth to feed. However, others said it just isn’t about the money but the longing for companionship that made her get the dog.

Onlookers Grab 12-Year-Old ‘Child Bride’ from 65-Year-Old ‘Groom’ in New York

In many countries, ladies must at least be 18 years old to get married but there are a lot of countries that actually allow men to take wives as young as 6 years old! What’s worse is that these men are old enough to be these young girls’ great-grandfathers!

A lot of these ‘child brides’ are also married off against their will – and actually with the blessing of their own parents! Most of the time, they have no one to defend them from the practice and many of these young girls die on their wedding night or in child birth.

In hopes of raising awareness against the practice, YouTuber Coby Persin staged a mock ‘child bride’ wedding photoshoot in Times Square, New York.

Persin and his crew posed as the photographers for the couple. They aimed to gauge the public’s attention and see if someone would step up to save the young ‘victim’ from the old man.

If you were there, how you react to a photoshoot involving an old groom and an obviously very young bride?

Well, many of the onlookers were rather bothered by what they were witnessing. Many watched the entire proceedings with raised eyebrows, talking among themselves and probably planning what they should do next.

Some of the people there took photos of the disturbing moment while others chose to just ignore the couple, despite the girl looking rather glum on her supposedly ‘happy day’.

But, thankfully, many stood up for the little lady. A number of them tried to physically take the girl away from her old groom while others threatened to call the cops on the old man. They just could not accept the old man’s explanation that he had the permission of the girl’s parents!

Things even appeared to escalate in some parts but while they did not post it on the video, we’re quite sure Persin and his team eventually cleared things out and explained to them that this was just a social experiment.

How would you feel if you were invited to drink a cup of milk and then after drinking it, you were told it wasn’t from a cow but from a dog instead? The possibilities, of course, is that you will be disgusted – just like the people below.

PETA recently launched this cruel prank video where several Londoners were told to try a new dairy product.

Many of them praised the milk for being sweet and creamy and then, “a disturbing ‘fact’ about the milk was revealed,” PETA wrote in a blog.

The animal welfare group further continued:

“People were disgusted when they were told that the drink (which was actually soya milk) came from a dog. But if the thought of drinking dogs’ milk makes you feel ill, why drink the milk from any other animal? After all, there is nothing “normal” about artificially inseminating a cow and forcing her to give birth, only to tear her beloved calf away from her so that the milk that nature intended for her baby can be consumed by humans instead.”

You can watch the prank video here:

“Humans,” emphasized PETA, “are the only species on the planet to drink another animal’s milk, and cows’ milk is no more natural for us than dogs’ or rats’ milk would be.”

What Is PETA?

PETA stands for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.

According to its website, PETA is “the largest animal rights organization in the world, with more than 5 million members and supporters.”

The organization focuses its attention and efforts on four areas of industry where animals suffer the most namely the food industry, the clothing trade, the laboratories, and the entertainment industry.

PETA likewise works on “a variety of other issues, including the cruel killing of rodents, birds, and other animals who are often considered “pests” as well as cruelty to domesticated animals.”

Can you live without your smartphones and computers? If you were asked to give them up for a whole week, would you be up for the challenge?

We may not be aware of it but many of us have become highly dependent on our gadgets. In fact, this video by lifehunterstv points out that most people “spend 8 hours and 33 minutes on media each day” and that “we check our smartphones 221 times a day.”

One ordinary family was put to the test to see if they can stand being unplugged for 7 days.

Meet the Mann family, a family of four who agreed to participate in the “hardest experiment ever.” For one whole week, all electronic gadgets and devices will be off-limits for them so that means no TV, no tablet, no laptop, and definitely no smartphones.

This, of course, wasn’t an easy feat especially since most of them admit that gadgets play a big part in their lives. Young Leanne admitted that the first thing she does upon waking up is to check on social media.

Actually, psychologist Marissa van der Sluis explained that gadget addiction is comparable to a “mild drug or alcohol addiction.”

“When you quit, you can get withdrawal symptoms,” she said.

So how did the family do in the challenge? How was their overall experience for 7 days without gadgets?

Watch the video below and see for yourself:

As the family attests, it has been a struggle living without gadgets for a while but they discovered new things. They had more time to talk, play games, and simply enjoy each other’s company – simple things they haven’t done for a while because they were all glued on their screens.

What Does It Mean To Overcome Tech Addiction?

According to a MakeUseOf article:

“Overcoming tech addiction doesn’t mean ending your use of that technology, it just means doing whatever you need to do so that the technology can improve the quality of your life, rather than taking over your life.”
