Cheer us up please.
« on: October 03, 2017, 02:23:50 AM »
Dear All
 
As an ordinary US citizen I am having a rough week. Too many lives have been lost. I can't even comprehend it. (-I was not there and I lost no one but this is still my country.) In times of mourning sometimes it is good to do something uplifting or have a laugh. Please attach photos and videos that will make me and others feel a bit better such as animals, babies, funny and cute videos, beautfiul nature stuff, etc. You get the idea. I'm sure others who have seen the recent tragedy could use their spirits lifted as well. Thanks.

Knowledge is power. Power corrupts. Study hard. Be evil.

Tiny Kittens is a superb example of how one person, starting from nothing but caring, can made a worldwide difference: https://www.facebook.com/tinykittens?_rdr

Part of the Tiny Kittens amazingness is Grandpa Mason, a still (somewhat) fierce feral who has turned out to have a center of marshmellow softness and love: https://www.facebook.com/MasonAndKittens/?fref=mentions

Old but still inspiring: Derek Redmond at the 1992 Olympic Games. Sometimes you need to lean on someone else.

In a similar vein; Alistair Brownlee helping his brother Jonny to finish a triathlon:

I am not touting Ellen here, but star lighting the heroes that she has on her show.

The stories of loving, helpful, kind people help me keep my faith in humanity.

My personal favorite:
a google image search for baby {ANIMAL}.
Baby dikdik, baby polar bear, baby capybara, baby kitten*, baby raccoon...
You may suffer from cute overload, but it's a lovely mood lifter.

(note that baby aardvarks are somewhat naked-looking, so they may not be your kind of cute.)
*I know that's redundant, but it turns up some nice results.

I follow @hourlyFox (they post pictures of foxes on the half-hour) and Otter_News (photos and video clips of otters being otters) on Twitter. Both have a lot of cute/adorable/squeeeeeee! factors to uplift.
Some day, I hope to get paid to kill people. Now, I just do it for fun.

Seconding the recommendation for TinyKittens and Grandpa Mason.

I will also give you--goats on horses: https://www.wimp.com/energetic-baby-goats-jump-all-over-a-very-patient-horse-theyre-having-so-much-fun/

You can Google "goats on horses" for many more videos.

Don't watch if you have not seen the original Blade Runner, but if you have seen it, this HISHE Dubs is HYSTERICAL!
