Man Hit By School Bus While Walking Turtle Across Highway

Karma is a fickle mistress. We’ve come to expect that whenever we perform an act of selflessness, the universe will reward us for our troubles. Even people who don’t necessarily believe in karma have formed some sort of belief based around “do good and good will happen to you.” However, this is not always the case.

Earlier this week, a seventy year old man in Wisconsin saw a turtle attempting to cross the highway and decided to lend a helping hand. All he wanted was to do a good thing for some creature out in the world. No crime in that, right? So he picked up the turtle, intending to carry it across Highway 59 to safety and no doubt feeling pretty proud of himself for helping the little guy. That is, until he stepped out into the highway and a school bus hit him.Continue Reading

It’s fair to say that Charles Ramsey has had quite the month.

At the beginning of May, Charles Ramsey became an internet sensation when he helped three victims escape from a kidnapping. In just a few short days his name was everywhere, and he even had his interview autoned on Youtube (it’s sad how much that says about a person’s popularity and fame, but it really does say a lot). It was later revealed that he had served time for domestic abuse over ten years ago, but that didn’t deter people from praising him. On the contrary, he’s had a wealth of different tributes, such as T-shirts, tattoos, and even an online game. Honestly, what other ways are left to honor this guy? Well, how about free burgers for the rest of his life?Continue Reading
