    You would think that after getting kicked in the balls by a horse, it would have been smooth sailing from there on out for one poor bastard in Australia.

    But according to BBC News, getting his nuts crushed by a nag was the equivalent to getting free ice cream compared to what happened next.

    Australian man does amateur surgery on another man's testicles
    The 52-year-old victim couldn't afford medical assistance from a professional, so he turned to the internet for help.

    Bad idea, Chuck.

    Allan George Matthews, 56, answered the man's call and wouldn't you know it, the poor guy's beanbag became infected after Matthews removed one of his testicles at a motel in June. At that point, the man finally bit the bullet and went to the hospital for the infection, and he eventually led authorities to Matthews.

    Police raided Matthews's house and found "medical equipment, firearms and four bottles of what they suspected to be amyl nitrate." He pleaded guilty to removing one of the man's stones despite the fact that he was not qualified or authorized to do so.

    There were also a few other charges against Matthews thrown in there, but you would think illegally removing one-third of a bro's manhood alone should be enough to put him away for awhile.

    They say it's a dog-eat-dog world, but that may not be entirely accurate. We'd say it's more like a dog-sit-dog world if the following photos are any indication. We've always figured that since cats are a-holes, sitting on them was simply a canine's revenge. Quite frankly, now we're not sure what to think.

    The whole nature of diseases is that they're designed to spread. That's why bacteria and viruses are the dominant life form on this planet. But there are certain kinds of disease that buck the trend by sticking to a single location. They're called "culture-bound syndromes" or "folk illnesses," and they're one of the most fascinating things in medicine. Instead of spreading worldwide through human or animal vectors, these diseases limit themselves to a specific society or culture. Most of them are mental in nature, and they're all totally weird. Here's a rundown of 10 of the most notorious.

    Grisi Sikinis
    10 Diseases That Only Happen In One Place
    Found only among the Miskito people of Central America's Mosquito Coast, this intense disorder manifests itself in mostly young women. It can start incredibly suddenly, with patients experiencing low levels of anxiety and nausea interspersed with intense manic attacks. During these attacks, sufferers often take up weapons and do battle against invisible demons. They then pass out, and when they awaken talk about those same demons both fighting them and having sex with them. Western medicine has offered no provable cause for this behavior, and it's equally bad at curing grisi sikinis. The afflicted typically turn to curandero witch doctors for folk remedies.

    Kalachi Sleeping Sickness
    10 Diseases That Only Happen In One Place
    Spontaneous sleeping -- narcolepsy -- isn't a folk disorder. But when it becomes localized around one specific place, things get a little weird. In 2015, the town of Kalachi in northern Kazakhstan was hit by a pandemic of napping, with hundreds of locals being seized by unstoppable fits of falling asleep no matter what they were doing. The first cases were seen in 2013, but it started picking up steam a few years later, and the stories were striking. Even pets were affected by the bizarre malady. Investigators didn't find elevated radiation levels, but some believe that carbon monoxide released into the air by a nearby mine could have caused the impromptu napping.

    Glass Delusion
    10 Diseases That Only Happen In One Place
    Folk diseases aren't a modern invention. Here's a historical one that's incredibly nuts but thankfully seems to have died out. In 15th-century Europe, the populace was swept by an overwhelming fear that their bodies were turning to fragile, easily-shattered glass. It was primarily restricted to the upper class, and even King Charles VI of France was reported to have glass delusion. Most scientists feel like glass delusion is a variant of what's called "scholar's melancholy," where people with too much free time found their minds wandering to some pretty dark places.

    Koro
    10 Diseases That Only Happen In One Place
    Koro is one of the most famous folk illnesses of all time, because it's just so ludicrous. Occurring only in the Chinese and Malaysian populations in Southeast Asia, it's a mental disorder in which the sufferer believes that his penis is being sucked back into his body, never to be seen again. Obviously this is physiologically impossible, but that doesn't stop dozens of people from freaking out over it every year. In Chinese culture, a loss of sexual potency also means impending death, so koro sufferers often undertake bizarre exercises to keep their peckers on the outside. They tie their wieners to rocks and let them dangle or construct elaborate machines to anchor them in place and prevent any perceived shrinkage.

    Empacho
    10 Diseases That Only Happen In One Place
    The stomach is a source of a lot of medical mystery, a roiling cauldron of bacteria that enable us to survive by helpfully breaking our food down into component nutrients. In some Latino cultures, however, that process goes wrong with a folk illness known as empacho. The symptoms are common -- constipation and lack of appetite, most notably -- but the explanation is not. Empacho describes an undigested ball of food that for whatever reason has decided to take up residence in the gut, blocking the passage of anything else. Remedies range from the innocuous (rolling an egg on the stomach) to the terrifying (azarcon, a lead-heavy salt that can cause serious neurological damage).

    Taijin Kyofusho
    10 Diseases That Only Happen In One Place
    One interesting thing about these localized diseases is that in many ways they seem like outgrowths of the culture's base psychology. Case in point: taijin kyofusho, a Japanese mental illness that amplifies politeness and respect to outrageous levels. Sufferers of TKS believe that their appearance or body odor is innately offensive to other people, and avoid any sort of social contact as a result. When they have to deal with other people, intense anxiety symptoms like sweating and nervous tremors can result. There's actually a specific treatment known as Morita therapy devised just to deal with these conditions.

    Pibloktoq
    10 Diseases That Only Happen In One Place
    Living in one of the most harsh and desolate places on Earth can really do a number on you. The Inuit people of the frozen Arctic spend their winters surrounded by cold and darkness, and when it gets to be too much for them they snap. Colloquially known as "Arctic hysteria," symptoms include stripping all of your clothes off (which is a one-way ticket to frostbite town) and occasionally consuming your own feces. Episodes typically last only a few minutes, but they can be very shocking. There might be a physiological explanation for pibloktoq -- the Eskimo diet is high in Vitamin A, and overdoses of that can produce mental instability.

    LeRoy Twitch
    10 Diseases That Only Happen In One Place
    Sometimes outbreaks of folk illnesses can be traced to a single source. In 2011, students at LeRoy Junior-Senior High School in LeRoy, New York, started exhibiting intense neurological symptoms including tics, outbursts and speech difficulty. Investigators and lawyers flocked to the town to try and find the cause, with possibilities including environmental pollution from the Lehigh Valley railroad derailment. Eventually, once doctors convinced the families to keep their kids away from the media, the symptoms disappeared. The eventual diagnosis was that it was a mass psychogenic illness, where one girl with Tourette's syndrome unconsciously influenced a whole group into imitating her behavior.

    Shenkui
    10 Diseases That Only Happen In One Place
    Here's another sexual dysfunction localized to China, which is making us think that there's something going on there that needs to be talked about. In the 1980s and 1990s, there were a rash of reports of shenkui, or "semen loss syndrome." In traditional Chinese medicine, the male reproductive system is linked to the metaphysical force known as "yang," and busting a nut reduces said yang. Chinese men were basically having mental breakdowns about how much they were jerking off and reporting to the hospital with symptoms including pain, dizziness and insomnia. The only cure? Keeping your hands away from your pants for a while to let your yang build back up.

    Wild Pig Syndrome
    10 Diseases That Only Happen In One Place
    It seems like many of these mental disorders are triggered by a new influx of responsibility. Wild pig syndrome is an excellent example. This folk disease is endemic in New Guinea among the males, typically if they can't meet obligations to other tribesmen. It manifests in a sudden and unpredictable explosion of kleptomania, with the "wild pig" robbing the houses of his neighbors and fleeing into the jungle with the stolen loot. A few days later, they invariably stumble back to the village without any of the possessions and having no memory of their behavior. In particularly intense cases, the sufferer will be tied up and held over a smoking fire to purge the madness from their bodies.

  • 07/18/16--05:37: Moms Who Know How To Party
  • Motherhood requires traipsing along the thin line of friendship and authoritarianism. Some say friendship comes later in life, while others say "not on my watch." The following mothers deserve some sort of award; I'm just not sure what that award is.

    Mom Throws Naked Twister Party
    moms who know how to party, rachel lynn lehnardt mugshot
    Rachel Lynn Lehnardt of Augusta, GA, is one bad Mormon. One night in April 2015, she did the unthinkable. After her 16-year-old daughter texted her asking if she could bring friends over to party, Lehnardt replied, "Come on, let's party." What ensued belongs in the Guinness books for Mormon indiscretion:

    -Lehnardt played naked Twister with her son's teenage friends
    -She smoked weed and drank alcohol with them
    -She had sex with an 18-year-old in the bathroom
    -She came out of the bathroom and said she was "still horny," commencing a full-on sex toy show in front of the frothing youngsters (unsure where her daughter was during all of this, but I don't want to think about that)
    -She got in the hot tub naked with them
    -She had sex with her daughter's 16-year-old boyfriend, keeping it in the family


    In all, Lehnardt was sentenced to 12 months probation because the age of consent in the Peach State is 16. She only paid a $100 fine per drunken child. Although her daughter later defended her on Twitter, it's unknown how she personally feels about the dildo show.


    Mom Buys Stripper for 8-Year-Old Son's Birthday

    Some thought it child abuse; others thought it was swell. What do you think? On March 24, a video surfaced on YouTube of a stripper clad in pink butt-suffocating an eight-year-old's face. The boy is seen tossing dollar-dollar-bills-y'all at her twerking body while his friends giggle in childlike glee. While the mother was never questioned by police, I'd like to ask her where I can find a "street worker" with such twerk-tastic moves. It all went down in Tampa, FL, as if that's surprising to anyone.


    Mom Buys Prostitute for Harvard-Bound Son
    moms who know how to party, mom craigslist prostitute harvard son
    Her virgin son. On July 16, 2013, a Philadelphia mom posted an ad on Craigslist requesting a hooker to turn her son from a "high school nerd to a cool college kid." What the mother fails to realize is that approximately 99.9 percent of Harvard's freshman class is composed of sexless nerds who need to study. The mother promised to make the prostitute's "financial issues disappear" under the condition that she shows her 18-year-old virgin different sexual positions.


    Stripper Bites Teen's Nipple After Mom Throws Stripper Party
    moms who know how to party, stripper bites teen's nipple judy viger
    It was young Reggie's birthday. As you can see in the above photo, a stripper is straddling the 16-year-old's head in an impressive acrobatic display.

    In November 2012, Judy Viger of South Glen Falls, NY, hired what she thought were "bikini gram dancers" who would sing happy birthday in bathing suits. It turned into a full-fledged lap dance show. According to the official police report, one teen's nipple was savagely bitten by a stripper doing the best she could. Viger was charged with five counts of unlawful generosity toward her son. In the end, she only received 50 hours of community service.


    Mom Whoops Too Loudly at Graduation Ceremony, Gets Arrested
    moms who know how to party, shannon cooper whoop too loud graduation
    Shannon Cooper was proud of her daughter's graduation from South Carolina's South Florence High School. As Iesha Cooper received her diploma on stage, audible WHOOP WHOOPs blared from one member of the audience. In an exclusive interview,Shannon explained the following to WPDE NewsChannel 15: "Are y'all serious? Are y'all for real? I mean, that's what I'm thinking in my mind. I didn't say anything. I was just like OK, I can't fight the law." Word. "How was I so disorderly, you know, any different from just a happy parent?"


    Mom Tries to Save Son's Life With Weed
    moms who know how to party, shona banda son marijuana
    A savior or a criminal? We pose the question to you, dear reader. Kansas resident Shona Banda became somewhat of an icon in 2014 when she used cannabis oil to (successfully) treat her 11-year-old son, who had Crohn's Disease. It worked, but when the boy mentioned during a drug-education class that his mother was a huge stoner, police raided her place and found enough pot to make Seth Rogen jealous. Banda now faces up to 30 years in prison. And, hold your tears, the state took away her son. (Kansas doesn't like marijuana as much as Colorado.) To this day, Banda is fighting the law and trying to gain back custody of her son.


    Mom and Daughter Throw Rager
    moms who know how to party, carolyn weinand mother daughter party
    Mother Carolyn Weinand ALMOST pulled off a successful ruse. When police raided her Naples, FL, home and found dozens of teens getting hammered, Carolyn called the cops and explained that she was out of town, and to clear the house as they wish. Police searched through every nook and cranny and removed every young drunkard, until they went to the master bedroom -- where they found the 56-year-old realtor hiding. Carolyn Weinand faced 26 counts of selling, giving or serving alcohol to a minor, just for being cool.


    British Mother of the Decade Asks the World to Have Sex with Her Down Syndrome Son
    moms who know how to party, lucy baxter down syndrome son
    In 2009, mother-of-three Lucy Baxter made a plea on BBC for her son Otto to finally meet a mate. The 21-year-old aspiring actor hadn't yet found love, and Lucy made it her mission to give that to him. "Why should these people be kept separate and pigeon-holed when they have the same emotions, desires and feelings as so-called normal people? ... I'd like all my boys to find love and enjoy sex." Amen.

    Fast forward four years later to 2013 and guess what? Otto found a 22-year-old hottie who was also Down with the syndrome. When asked whether Otto was still a virgin he replied, "Mind your own business." That's a yes!


    Louisville Mom Throws a Party 150-Strong
    moms who know how to party, lydia m house party
    Chummies of her 17-year-old son converged on her Louisville, KY, residence to create a block party that belongs in the plot of "American Pie." Police arrived and smelled a pungent marijuana odor. Pulling a traditional mom trick, Lydia M. House came out of the house and told the cops that "she had just got home." She was charged with engaging in an unlawful transaction with a minor, although she should've never made the news.


    Senior Tries Shrooms for the First Time, Goes Viral

    In February, a gray-haired Boomer consumed some psilocybin for the first time ever and aired it on YouTube. The mother of two wanted to try shrooms in hopes that it would "break bad habits," and also to stop her from wanting to please people all the time. After 30 minutes, the quotes only pleased us...

    -"It's like a fire in my spine but I'm freezing."
    -"It feels like twitchy lights kinda pulsing."
    -"Hahahahahaha. I just saw you barbecue half your head."
    -"That tree actually has a face on it."


    One day later, the sweet old lady had zero regrets about the experience: "I reconnected with my real self ... I got rid of a bunch of lies." In the end, this early fungus gave her a brand new perspective on life.

    If you're not being scolded at work for playing Pokémon Go, or if you're not crashing your car while playing Pokémon Go, you're probably getting arrested for playing it like the idiot in this story did.

    Michigan Man With Warrant Gets Arrested Thanks To 'Pokémon Go'
    According to the Detroit Free Press, a 26-year-old "Pokémon Go" player in Milford with an outstanding warrant is now behind bars after he followed the map in the massively popular game to a gym. And unfortunately for him, the gym was located across the street from a police station where two police offers recognized him and quickly arrested him.

    "A couple of our officers looked out the window and saw him standing out by the flagpole," Police Chief Tom Lindberg said.

    The man was wanted on a misdemeanor warrant for failure to appear in court on a breaking and entering charge, but now Lindberg can thank this shitty game for doing his job for him.

    "When I first learned about this game, I was very concerned it was taking young adults into places they shouldn't necessarily be -- and could get hurt, if they're not paying attention to what's going on around them," Lindberg said. "But I never thought someone with a warrant would be so driven by the game that they'd walk right up to the police station."

    The man was arraigned following his arrest and released on personal bond.

    An Emmy-nominated writer and director and jack-of-all-trades, between creating "Freaks and Geeks," his classic TV episodes for "The Office" all the way up to rebooting the classics like "Ghostbusters," Paul Feig is a man of many traits, and more men should strive to be like him.

    Role Model Call: Why Men Should Be More Like the Extraordinary Paul Feig
    Albeit a bit quirky, the "Bridesmaid" director and "The Peanuts Movie" producer has plenty of fetching qualities that seem a bit lost on the modern man today, but just like Bill Murray, we could learn a thing or 10 from great men of entertainment like him.

    Paul says it's never too early to get started.
    Feig, although fidgety in his appearance (probably due to his over-excitement for all things film related), is something of a renaissance man. He grew up in Michigan working his dad's army's surplus store at the bright age of five, knew he wanted to be in the business and ended up writing and editing commercials for his dad's store at the age of 15. It's easy to live for tomorrow, but there are plenty of those and only one right now. Focus your energy into the right now and not the tomorrow, for we never know what that bitch may bring.

    Role Model Call: Why Men Should Be More Like the Extraordinary Paul Feig
    The same goes for working on your threshold for rejection...
    Once a Universal Studios tour guide and stand-up comedian, he was no stranger to the closing of doors in his face. Bullied as a boy and even as an adult -- "Ghostbusters" was given the most dislikes in the history of YouTube videos -- Feig doesn't simply roll over at the first signs of creative disgust. Even the great "Freaks and Geeks" was a one-season wonder in 2000 and wasn't fully appreciated until later, but that didn't stop him from coming back strong with episodes for "Undeclared" and "Arrested Development" shortly after.

    As they say, the greatness of a man is measured by his strength in times of unease, and clearly Feig is a poster child for such creative resilience. You won't get any further down the hole if you don't keep chipping away.

    ...and an appreciation for constructive criticism.
    Most people would balk at poor reviews to a movie trailer, something Feig has struggled to deliver considering his movies are very character-based. But instead of turning a blind eye to the haters, he took the time to consider any and all of the things that might make his new ghost-busting project a failure in the eyes of the die-hards.

    It's easy for an artist to hold little regard for their audience's opinions, but upon the salty return of his first "Ghostbusters" trailer, Feig used that as ammunition to strengthen the story as much as he could before its release on July 15. Keep an open mind when it comes to criticism; it's one of the best ways to get better.

    Role Model Call: Why Men Should Be More Like the Extraordinary Paul Feig
    The man has impeccable style.
    In an age of jorts, flat-billed hats and bottomless freelancers, if there's one takeaway for every man when it comes to Paul Feig, it's his style. Consistent and considerate when it comes to his appearance, Feig leads by good example, showing up each day for work, as well as anything involving press, in a classic three-piece suit. Stylistically, there's nothing boring about his suits, each one superb and tailored in its own right, but he tends to spice it up with a swank top hat or any one of the antique walking sticks from his impressive collection.

    At his USC commencement speech, he even took off his graduation cap immediately so a good hair day would not go to waste or unnoticed. Let that be a lesson: Never let a good hair day go to waste and don't be afraid to dress up for work if your chair is 20 feet from your bed. It separates church and state.

    Role Model Call: Why Men Should Be More Like the Extraordinary Paul Feig
    He's all about the ladies.
    Nobody in all of Hollywood's bumbling incoherence has the balls to ironically focus his talents on the female populace, but Feig has done just that, well before this "Ghostbusters" controversy ever started. His first big hit, "Bridesmaids" in 2011, gave people a taste of what a female-driven cast can accomplish. It's arguable that we've seen it all when it comes to men, and Feig has the female sensibility to marry great comedy and great women together. We're just waiting for the A-Team to be redone as the Va-J-Team. "The Heat 2" was just announced as well, the original starring his go-to gal, Melissa McCarthy, and Sandra Bullock.

    Role Model Call: Why Men Should Be More Like the Extraordinary Paul Feig
    He ain't afraid of no (creative) ghost.
    When it comes to tackling the unknown, projects people swear to stay away from, Feig isn't the least bit shy. Nervous as hell? Sure. But his confidence and dedication to his work is too unparalleled for him to shy away from a good challenge. One of the most anticipated films of the decade is the reboot of "Ghostbusters," a film originally green-lit in the '80s by the man who introduced Feig at his USC commencement speech this year. Feig and his "The Heat" co-writer, Katie Dippold, rolled up their sleeves and did the work until they came up with a script Sony loved after three decades of rejections.

    Rejection is okay if you give it everything you had. Not everything you do will be great, but never trying is the greatest regret.

    He's well read and methodical.
    A graduate of USC, which is where some of the greats went -- he was moved by Steven Spielberg's boulder scene in "Raiders of the Lost Ark" -- and Feig felt compelled to learn from the best and find his own voice. Not only has he spent most of his free time studying the works of the masters, he reads, too. Yes, books. Feig has an appreciation for some slowly slipping mediums, but you can tell by his vast list of credits, from "Mad Men" to "Nurse Jackie," that this guy has his finger on every pulse. Take a note, folks, dive into quality works of the past, not just your Netflix queue.

    Role Model Call: Why Men Should Be More Like the Extraordinary Paul Feig
    Feig knows how to really work with people.
    The film industry has its hard-to-work-with types, but -- ask anyone -- Feig pulls out his actors' best qualities, which, in turn, pulls out his best qualities as a director. As one of the big movie directors to come from TV, he understands the importance of allowing comedic stars to do their thing, not cutting people out of the creative process. Once the script is shot, improv on lines comes tumbling through, especially in the case of the lady-led "Ghostbusters" flick with Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy and Kate McKinnon, three of comedy's best leading women. The first thing people think of when it comes to other people is how much of a joy they are to be around, or how much of a bummer. Don't be a bummer.

    He finds inspiration in all.
    After witnessing a slew of piss-poor screenwriters, Paul realized he could write, at the very least, piss-poor himself. Not long after, his pilot for "Freaks and Geeks" was Emmy nominated for its writing. If you can find inspiration in the mundane, you're on your way. Feig promises that you simply can't do enough when it comes to creativity. His advice: Keep doing stuff. There's always something to be done, so instead of letting others do the work for you, get it done your way by doing it yourself. Other bits of inspiration include "don't be an asshole," "don't be a control freak" and "there's never been a better time to create something."

    Role Model Call: Why Men Should Be More Like the Extraordinary Paul Feig
    He invests in himself.
    Not many know this, but Feig has had his hands in the acting pool for some time now. His passion project, however, was not something greatly celebrated, but he did it anyway, his way.
    Saved up after "Sabrina the Teenage Witch," Feig took 30K and invested in his passion project, "Life Sold Separately." He learned early on he had to do things himself, his way, and that nobody is doing your work for you. And if they do, they probably won't do as hard a job as you, if you're more passionate about it.

    You may have grand plans for yourself, and you may think nobody else has a clue about it, and then one day you turn on the tele and there she be, your beautiful idea. Whether or not yours is a rare gem, an obscure classic in the making or just something you're terrified to do, get on it. Ideas have a way of making their rounds until they find something willing to bring them to fruition. Don't make the mistake of thinking you're the only one with brilliance passing through.

    We've said it before, and we'll say it again: Why people are still forking over $100 for a pay-per-view boxing match or MMA fight is anybody's guess because today's best knockouts can be watched over and over again for free.

    Take this superior knockout outside a Superior Grocers store in Baldwin Park, California, Friday morning, for example, shared by Leah Rose:


    I mean, even the asshole Russian judge would have to give this guy a "10" for his performance, as the dude landed every single punch and kick to that moron's dome. You could even give him extra credit for holding onto his groceries during the entire bout.

    In a related story, no ma'am, he's not OK. And the fact that you had to ask that question was almost as embarrassing as that clown's performance in the fight.

    Also, we're by no means experts when it comes to throwing down outside California grocery stores, but here's our advice if you plan on doing so in the near future: If you've just taken three right hooks to the face from a guy twice your size while at the same time bringing nothing to the table in terms of an effective retaliation, you might want to refrain from asking the guy who's kicking your ass if "that's it."

    Usually when you say that a band's performance was shit-your-pants awesome, it's just a funny way to say that the show was phenomenal.

    But that's not the case this time around.

    According to Philadelphia Magazine, a woman literally shit her pants while watching Guns N' Roses deliver the goods to a crowd of tens of thousands at Lincoln Financial Field Thursday night.

    woman shits pants at GNR show in Philadelphia, guns n roses woman crapped pants
    While others called the performance "sweaty and strong," writer Victor Fiorillo gave the show a mixed review, saying the combination of the heat, booze and sizable crowd made for a not-so-pleasurable experience. In fact, he even witnessed at least one female adult concertgoer shit her pants during the first set:

    "Seriously, was there anyone at the Guns N' Roses show that wasn't completely inebriated? People were pretty clearly trying to relive their 20s, and it didn't appear to be going well based on the number of middle agers I saw getting sick or on the verge of it.

    One woman fell down drunk and pooped her pants, and that was within the first hour of the show. Excessive drinking, excessive heat, and excessive crowds are not a good combination."

    Who knows? Maybe the young lady was from Canada, as we've heard that kind of behavior there is considered the ultimate compliment. Or maybe it's just farting at the dinner table. Either way, gross.

    If you're in the middle of devouring a delicious Milky Way candy bar, you might want to hurry up and finish it before you watch this clip of what we're calling the most brutal leg injury in the history of soccer, and keep in mind that human beings were playing the game before Christ was born.

    Hell, the Mayans played some form of soccer where they had to bounce a ball through a hoop without using their hands, and members of the losing team were put to death, and still, this dude's leg snapping and dangling like a puppet could be considered worse.

    So, consider yourselves warned. What you're about to watch is far more disturbing than the game of soccer itself, and that's saying something:


    And that, kids, is why you're not allowed to play soccer with steel-toed shoes in America.

    These are sad times for America. We hate to add more to the pile, but we're not exactly gaining the respect of foreigners, either. Especially those trying to get a grasp on English as a second language. Considering that about every slang word we have is just a variation of the phrase "Sounds good," we can't really fault them. But if I'm not winning you over with my half-assed intro argument, perhaps this is where I should let a tweet from @chanhoagland take over.

    We already know that hot golfers like Chelsea Lynn Pezzola and Paige Spiranac can be found out on the green sometimes, but there's someone else who also enjoys taking part in one of the most boring sports out there -- and you probably would never expect it.

    This guy did his best to pull off a pair of cargo shorts and a pastel blue shirt, and we wouldn't be caught dead poking fun at him. Take a look at the picture below thanks to WithSpandex and see if you can figure out who the dude on the left is:

    Yep, it's everyone's favorite deadman.

    We're in the middle of summer and everyone is out and about, but something tells me that no one is having as much fun as Bella Hadid is.

    While it's common for everyone to take photos of their summer vacations, Bella went out of her way to take pictures of her and her vacation buddy: her bikini. Take a look at just some of the pictures of Bella on her Caribbean getaway thanks to her Instagram:

    Living with crummy neighbors is never easy, and people have their own ways to deal with the stress and horror that comes with a shitty neighbor. Some people smear shit on their bad neighbors, while others go as far as setting their own apartment on fire to get away from them. And while we don't advise you to do any of those things, we will advise you to consider doing this.

    Next time your neighbors are being too loud, perhaps you should set forth this simple prank:

    Well, it seems that America really, really loves Drake. At least that's according to figures from RIAA. While usually it seems that Beyonce or Taylor Swift (although not lately in her case) reign supreme, that wasn't exactly the case when it came to the top favorite artist of each state. So go ahead and find your state below and see what the top 10 most popular music artists are.

    night terrors, sleeping with someone who has night terrors, nightmares, sleeping disorders
    My name is Gary, and sometimes I am afraid to go to sleep at night. It's not because I sleepwalk or have vivid nightmares or anxiety about dying in my sleep. It's because my lovely wife randomly has night terrors, and they can be absolutely horrifying.

    I can't really remember when they started, but I know it wasn't nearly as bad a few years ago when we were dating. We'd go to bed, and occasionally she would make these light whimpering sounds in her sleep. It was kind of like when you see a puppy stirring and having what you think are little puppy nightmares. It was actually kind of cute, but still, I would calmly wake her to make sure she was okay and she would tell me she was just having a bad dream.

    However, the cute little bad dream whimpers kept escalating. One night, I was out in our living room finishing up some work and my wife went to bed early. I turned off all the lights but kept our bedroom door open a crack so I could just quietly come in and go to bed after I was done. I was watching TV about an hour later, and heard something strange coming from our bedroom. It wasn't as loud as a scream or as soft as a moan, but something in between. At first I thought I was hearing things so I muted the TV, and sure enough, it was still going. I ran into our room and could see my wife lying on her back with her eyes closed, scream-moaning up at the ceiling. I climbed onto the bed and tried to gently wake her up, as I had heard that violently waking up someone who is having a night terror can make it worse (at this point in our relationship, we had both done some research on it). What happened next is that she opened her eyes -- wide open -- and stared at me with a scared look on her face, as if she was trying to figure out who I was and what was going on. After a couple of seconds a sense of relief came over her face and she hugged me, telling me that she was having a horrible nightmare. No shit.

    This was not the last time this would happen to my wife, nor was it the scariest episode. Not even close. We got married a few months later, and a few months after that we moved into a bigger apartment. This is when the night terror hell really intensified.

    My wife started having the nightmare whimpers more frequently -- twice a week sometimes -- to the point where I nearly got used to them. Although, you can never really get used to them, because when someone else's night terror wakes you up, you get hit with your own flurry of anxiety, fear and adrenaline until you can figure out what is happening. It got to the point where I could almost manage them, though. It's like I adapted to sleep lightly, so if she had a nightmarish episode I could roll over and console her. Then we would both go back to sleep for the rest of the night and it would be fine.

    But that's when the gasp-screams started.

    Let me explain the gasp-screams. Usually my wife's bad dream whimpers and groans don't wake her up. They either subside on their own or last until I wake her up and assure her that everything is okay. However, her nightmares started being so bad that she would whimper, scream and then sit straight up quickly in bed while gasping for breath. And it would all happen in a matter of seconds. There would be no time for me to gently wake her and tell her everything was okay. It's petrifying for both of us. Then, on a night that will live in infamy, my wife's worst night terror of all time happened and haunts me to this day.

    It was the middle of the night, which is already a little odd because usually her terrors happen within the first hour or so after falling asleep. We keep our bedroom very dark, with just a little moonlight peeking in sometimes. All of a sudden, I woke up to the sound of my wife screaming. She was sitting straight up in bed. I made the mistake of grabbing her shoulder in an attempt to comfort her, and this time she LEAPT out of bed like I have never seen before. She was now standing a couple feet away from the foot of the bed, and I could tell that she was staring in my direction, still screaming. It was frightening and I didn't know what to do, so I began shouting her name over and over again, desperately trying to get her to realize that everything was okay, but she was terrified and inconsolable. I was still sitting in the bed because I feared if I moved toward her it would freak her out even more. Finally, after what felt like a full minute of her screaming and me pleading for her to stop, she snapped out of it and began crying. She slowly came over to the bed to hug me, and I asked her what the hell happened.

    My wife explained that she was having a nightmare that a demon was on top of her in bed. So when she awoke, that is why she quickly jumped out and ran a few steps away. Even though she was up, she was only partially awake and still having the nightmare. When she looked back at where me, she was still seeing some sort of demonic figure. Yes, my wife mistook me for an evil being, and I'm not sure if I've fully recovered from that to this day.

    Thankfully, that was the last time she suffered such a traumatic night terror, but the "mini" ones have not stopped. They are much less frequent, though. In telling the story to friends and family, we discovered that her father has them sometimes, too. Also, there seem to be triggers that make sense. For instance, if we watch a scary movie or even a thriller/mystery type show, it's not a surprise if she has a sleep whimpering occurrence that night. Recently, she simply saw the trailer for "Lights Out" on TV, and that night I had to wake up to comfort her back to sleep after a nightmare. This one didn't even phase me, though, and I barely remembered it in the morning (she didn't recall it at all, which is common).

    So, what is it like sleeping next to a person who has night terrors? Ultimately, it can be unsettling, especially at first. But, like all strange things, you eventually get used to it. Sure, in the back of my mind I am slightly afraid that my wife is going to mistake me for a demon again and try to murder me, but I know she is not the murdering type. As long as she just keeps whimpering and cringing in fear until I come along to save the day, I think everything is going to be alllllllright.

    But maybe we should talk to a doctor, just to be safe.
