It's a miracle that they keep their clothes on all day, but would you?

Everyone enjoys a little sun now andagain. But the stifling, way-past-summer, folks-can't-move kind of heat is just not cool (literally).

I'm not talking about some far-off planet in outerspace.

Extreme heat is right in our own backyards.


Like in Wisconsin, where "It's an all-you-can-heat buffet from May to October, and senior citizen discount is every day."

The main dude who "gets it " is a teenager.

"Neighborhoods are ovens with windows, and as the knob on global warming increases, lives are preheated until the soul soufflés."

He has all the right words.

"Compressed living complexes circulate heat and cause compressed feelings to converge upon our neighbors in the hood. So that 90% release of excess body heat talked about in science class is contributing to our local temperature rising."

Because climate change isn't just happening to him.

It's happening to all the people around him. "Heat affects the elderly more than it does us. Their lungs resemble the Dow Exchange, rises and drops until they crash."

His words and observations don't stop there. Click below and listen to what else he's got to say:

What a compelling poem, right?

Madison Square Garden in New York City is known for having hosted some legendary performances. George Harrison's Concert for Bangladesh in '71, Billy Joel's 12 sellouts in '06, and Carmelo Anthony's 62 points in a 2014 victory against the Charlotte Bobcats, just to name a few.

But it's hard to imagine one person holding the legendary arena in the palm of their hand quite like Pete DuPré, better known as "Harmonica Pete," did on Veterans Day.

Many of us are too young to remember the hijacking of Pan Am Flight 73 of 1986, much less any details about it. But thanks to a viral Facebook post from Misfit History, some attention is being shed on an incredible heroine who saved many American lives in the standoff.

Whenever life becomes too tedious or stressful, it seems that the human psyche has a release valve that turns on and we just go, "F it."

I give up. I no longer care. I got nothing left.

It's a wonderful moment when we go from being at our wits end to being on the other side of the madness. Because, after all, as Mark Manson, author of "The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck" says:
