Spreading joy and swinging clubs.

There’s BFFs, and then there’s Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake.

Their friendship (of nearly 18 years, by the way) is the stuff of wholesome pop culture legend. From goofy music videos to hilarious SNL sketches, Fallon and Timberlake always appear to take such enthusiastic and genuine joy in one another. Which may or may not make Timberlake’s wife Jessica Biel a tad jealous.

When the duo went out for a few rounds of golf in Las Vegas (according to Today), the two seemed to bring out their inner kids once again.The day consisted of jumping, dancing, chest bumping, shooting hoops (wait, which sport is happening here?), rolling around in the grass, a few sit-ups … oh yeah, and they also golfed, Timberlake assured in the caption of his Instagram post.


Timberlake’s video is set to Leo Sayer’s “You Make Me Feel Like Dancing,” which sums up his relationship with Fallon in a nutshell.

They were also seen applying sunscreen on one another. Because everyone knows that real friends don’t let other friends get sunburnt.

Fallon posted his own video to Instagram, set to Greg Street’s “Good Day.”

Seriously, it looks like a bunch of 6-year-old boys galloping around in a field, not men well into their 40s hangin' out on a golf course. And I mean that in the best way.

Timberlake seemed to be in particularly good form that day, despite the shenanigans. After knocking the ball closest to the hole during the 19th hole shootout, he quickly dropped the mic—or rather, club—and proceeded to show us all how it was no big deal really with a bunch of shrugs.

Ever the loving hype man, Fallon wouldn’t stop cheering his buddy on.


8amgolf, the tournament being held, wrote on its own page “find yourself a partner who knows how to celebrate.”

Though 8amgolf announced football players Travis Kelce and Patrick Mahomes II as the game’s champions of the day, Fallon and Timberlake are clearly the MVPs of bromance. And we love them for it.

May all our friendships be as full of silly, fun and childlike antics as a day of golf with Jimmy and Justin.

This is the most important van in NYC… and it’s full of socks.

How can socks make such a huge difference? You'd be surprised.

Every night, the van delivers nourishment in all kinds of ways to those who need it most

True

Homelessness in New York City has reached its highest levels since the Great Depression of the 1930s. Over 50,000 people sleep each night in a shelter, while thousands of others rely on city streets, the subway system and other public locations as spaces to rest.

That’s why this meal (and sock) delivery van is an effective resource for providing aid to those experiencing homelessness in New York City.

Every night of the year, from 7pm to 9:30, the Coalition for the Homeless drives a small fleet of vans to over 25 stops throughout upper and lower Manhattan and in the Bronx. At each stop, adults and families in need can receive a warm meal, a welcoming smile from volunteers, and a fresh, comfy new pair of Bombas socks. Socks may be even more important than you think.

Bombas was founded in 2013 after the discovery that socks were the #1 most requested clothing item at homeless shelters.

Access to fresh, clean socks is often limited for individuals experiencing homelessness—whether someone is living on the street and walking for much of the day, or is unstably housed without reliable access to laundry or storage. And for individuals experiencing or at risk of homelessness —expenses might need to be prioritized for more critical needs like food, medication, school supplies, or gas. Used socks can’t be donated to shelters for hygienic reasons, making this important item even more difficult to supply to those who need it the most.

Bombas offers its consumers durable, long-lasting and comfortable socks, and for every pair of Bombas socks purchased, an additional pair of specially-designed socks is donated to organizations supporting those in need, like Coalition for the Homeless. What started out as a simple collaboration with a few organizations and nonprofits to help individuals without housing security has quickly become a bona fide giving movement. Bombas now has approximately 3,500 Giving Partners nationwide.

Though every individual’s experience is unique, there can frequently be an inherent lack of trust of institutions that want to help—making a solution even more challenging to achieve. “I’ve had people reach out when I’m handing them a pair of socks and their hands are shaking and they’re looking around, and they’re wondering ‘why is this person being nice to me?’” Robbi Montoya—director at Dorothy Day House, another Giving Partner—told Bombas.

Donations like socks are a small way to create connection. And they can quickly become something much bigger. Right now over 1,000 people receive clothing and warm food every night, rain or shine, from a Coalition for the Homeless van. That bit of consistent kindness during a time of struggle can help offer the feeling of true support. This type of encouragement is often crucial for organizations to help those take the next difficult steps towards stability.

This philosophy helped Bombas and its abundance of Giving Partners extend their reach beyond New York City. Over 75 million clothing items have been donated to those who need it the most across all 50 states. Over the years Bombas has accumulated all kinds of valuable statistics, information, and highlights from Giving Partners similar to the Coalition for the Homeless vans and Dorothy Day House, which can be found in the Bombas Impact Report.

In the Impact Report, you’ll also find out how to get involved—whether it’s purchasing a pair of Bombas socks to get another item donated, joining a volunteer group, or shifting the conversation around homelessness to prioritize compassion and humanity.

An Italian preschooler's Italian rant has people in stitches.

All people have a need to communicate, but the way we do that varies greatly from place to place. Every culture has its own communication peculiarities that make our human family delightfully diverse.

Not only do humans speak thousands of languages around the world, but we also engage in culturally specific speaking styles, speech patterns and body language, some of which are immediately identifiable.

Case in point: the Italian "finger purse."

Colleen is really confused about inner monologues.

It's a little weird to think about thinking. But when you have a thought, is it a visualization, a string of words, a vague notion that carries meaning or a combination of all three? Did you know that some people can’t do all three?

A TikTok user named Colleen Carswell has a unique condition called aphantasia. According to WebMD, people with aphantasia lack a “mind’s eye," which is caused by problems in the visual cortex. It can lead to memory problems, fewer dreams and the inability to imagine hypothetical events.

In a video posted to TikTok, Carswell admitted her mind was blown when she realized her husband can hear words in his head when he thinks. "From what I'm gathering, people can hear in their mind," Colleen said, adding they can hear “inside their head,” “internally” and in their “own voice."
