North Carolina has become infamous for passing a bill in March that blocks measures to protect members of the LGBTQ community from discrimination. This has caused many famous musicians, like Bruce Springsteen, to cancel their concerts. Paypal has even canceled an expansion of the company that was supposed to open in North Carolina. Now, people in the state of North Carolina can't even look at porn. 

That's right, a popular website for sexy media called XHamster has blocked all computers from North Carolina. Instead of seeing... whatever it is they were searching for, they'll see a blank screen. Eventually, they plan to replace that blank screen with a petition to repeal the law.

Phife Dawg, a member of the rap group A Tribe Called Quest recently passed away at age 45.  This reporter was clearly a fan, the video description reads:

Mic drop! WSB-TVs Mark Arum and Fred Blankenship paid tribute to the late A Tribe Called Quest rapper Phife Dawg this morning by brilliantly inserting lyrics into the traffic report.

He does a great job sneaking it under the radar to include it in his report but his skills are undeniable. 

While surveying the damage in Malakoff, Andrea Martinez KYTX stumbled upon an interesting scene, to say the least. Watch the video below! #cbs19wx

Nicole Sedgebeer found herself stranded in London after missing the last train home. She didn't know what to do (besides burst into tears) until a homeless man named Mark helped her out. 

She explains on her Facebook post that she never expected someone like Mark to come to her aide:

I hope this story makes people look twice when they see a homeless person. Last night I missed my last train home and when I finally got to Euston to wait till the morning, the station was locked. Just as I was about to burst into drunken tears I met my homeless friend Mark. He said he would take me to a cafe that was open as it was too dangerous to walk by myself. He left me after a coffee and a chat and explained that he had to go get his sleeping bag but he would be back at 5 to walk me back to the station. (Me being a typical bitch didn't believe he would come back) It got past 5 and he was a no show. As I got round the corner my homeless friend Mark was running down the street towards me. Not only did he turn up but he had to get a bus to come get me. This man who I probably would of avoided eye contact with if he asked for spare change, completely changed such a negative event into the most eye opening event in my life. Mark you are one special man, I will never look down on a homeless person again This was also his first ever selfie!

Every once in a while, a story comes along and warms your heart. 

Someone has been going around placing "scam" parking tickets on the windshields of Asheville, NC cars that have a QR code for online payment leading to a good old fashioned Rickroll. Ah, good, clean internet fun IRL.

Unfortunately, local police and residents are pissed, probably because they don't get the joke. Transportation Director Ken Putnam was quoted as saying "it was kind of surprising to go to a link for a YouTube video, and then when I went to it, it was featuring some rock star that I didn't know who it was." Bless his heart. Apparently the culprit could be cited/arrested for littering if they're caught, so stay frosty out there, Rickroller.
