One question has probably made an appearance in a lot of our daydreams:

Hmmmmm. GIFs of kids via TD Ameritrade.

Whether it's while gazing longingly out the car window, fantasizing about winning the lottery, or comparing out-of-this-world scenarios with friends, it's fun to think about what we'd do if money wasn't an issue. Our minds can go to some pretty fascinating and creative places.


The answers of these little rascals sure capture what many of us would think up if we dared to dream.

Who wouldn’t want to jazz up their wardrobe?

Time to dust off those L.A. Gears!

Or get psyched about stocking up on some bling?

This little lady is all of us.

Maybe you'd want to buy something cool just because you can.

How did I not think of this?!

(Don't pretend you've never thought about what you'd do with a billion and a hundred bathtubs. Who hasn't dreamed about doing this?!)

Where do I get me one of these bad boys?

But even if these kids had bathtub convertibles lined with jewels that light up, it doesn’t come close to what they say matters to them the most: family.

As usual, amazing kids are showing us how it's done.

You know what? Me too.

This warms my heart.

The BEST indeed.

There's a whole lot more to life than just having a lot of money.

It'd be great to have a bajillion dollars. (And a garage full of bathtubs.) And there's no denying that life is a lot harder if you're not making enough money to afford you basic necessities.

But whatever you'd spend your imaginary gazillions on, there's a common thread that ties all of us together: It's the people around us that truly make us happy. In fact, the longest study in history came to the same conclusion.

So yes, money isn't everything. But the people you love? They sure are.

A breastfeeding mother's experience at Vienna's Schoenbrunn Zoo is touching people's hearts—but not without a fair amount of controversy.

Gemma Copeland shared her story on Facebook, which was then picked up by the Facebook page Boobie Babies. Photos show the mom breastfeeding her baby next to the window of the zoo's orangutan habitat, with a female orangutan sitting close to the glass, gazing at them.

"Today I got feeding support from the most unlikely of places, the most surreal moment of my life that had me in tears," Copeland wrote.

People have clearly missed their free treats.

The COVID-19 pandemic had us waving a sad farewell to many of life’s modern conveniences. And where it certainly hasn’t been the worst loss, not having free samples at grocery stores has undoubtedly been a buzzkill. Sure, one can shop around without the enticing scent of hot, fresh artisan pizza cut into tiny slices or testing out the latest fancy ice cream … but is it as joyful? Not so much.

Trader Joe’s, famous for its prepandemic sampling stations, has recently brought the tradition back to life, and customers are practically dancing through the aisles.


On the big comeback weekend, people flocked to social media to share images and videos of their free treats, including festive Halloween cookies (because who doesn’t love TJ’s holiday themed items?) along with hopeful messages for the future.

Dr. Daniel Mansfield and his team at the University of New South Wales in Australia have just made an incredible discovery. While studying a 3,700-year-old tablet from the ancient civilization of Babylon, they found evidence that the Babylonians were doing something astounding: trigonometry!

Most historians have credited the Greeks with creating the study of triangles' sides and angles, but this tablet presents indisputable evidence that the Babylonians were using the technique 1,500 years before the Greeks ever were.
