How people react when 2 'versions' of the same man fall and cry for help.

How do you decide who's worth helping and who isn't?

How people react when 2 'versions' of the same man fall and cry for help.

How many times were you told as a child that "looks aren't everything"?

If your childhood was anything like mine, probably a lot. If I had penny for every time I was told not to judge a book by its cover, I'd be pretty darn wealthy.

Considering how often we hear these messages when we're kids, you'd think we'd carry this important value out into the world.


But this video from NorniTUBE reveals something troubling: Looks could be a matter of life and death.

In the video shot in Paris, we see a man stumble to the corner as he coughs and finally collapses onto the ground.

The sidewalk is clearly busy. But despite his cries for help, no one helps him during the five minutes he's on the ground.

But check out how different the response is in this next part of the video, featuring the same man doing the same thing in the same place ... with just one tiny difference.

He's wearing a suit.

Not everyone stops to help him. Nor does the assistance come from the first few people who see him collapse. But the difference in the amount of time it takes for someone to try to help speaks volumes.

The video is a call to be an everyday hero — by treating others (no matter how they look) as you would yourself.

It's an amazing reminder of how important that old golden rule is.

As the video states, "It is by simple and heroic actions that we begin to appreciate the true meaning of the word 'humanity.'"

Brittany Kinley, a mother from Mansfield, Texas, had a hilarious mom fail her and she's chalking it up to being just another crazy thing that happened in 2020.

When Kinley filled out the order form for her son Mason's kindergarten class pictures, there was an option to have his name engraved into the photos. But Kinley wasn't interested in having her son's name on the photos so she wrote "I DON'T WANT THIS" on the box.

Well, it appears as though she should have left the box blank because the computer or incredibly literal human that designed the photographs wrote "I DON'T WANT THIS" where mason's name should be.

Twins born with separate fathers are rare in the human population. Although there isn't much known about heteropaternal superfecundation — as it's known in the scientific community — a study published in The Guardian, says about one in every 400 sets of fraternal twins has different fathers.

Simon and Graeme Berney-Edwards, a gay married couple, from London, England both wanted to be the biological father of their first child.

"We couldn't decide on who would be the biological father," Simon told The Daily Mail. "Graeme said it should be me, but I said that he had just as much right as I did."

In December 2018, The Utah Department of Transportation opened the largest wildlife overpass in the state, spanning 320 by 50 feet across all six lanes of Interstate 80.

Its construction was intended to make traveling through the I-80 corridor in Summit County safer for motorists and the local wildlife.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports that there were over 100 animal incidents on the interstate since 2016, giving the stretch of highway the unfortunate nickname of "Slaughter Row."
