Anti-Microwave Idiot Gets Absolutely Decimated by Real Science

Sadly, you can reliably trust that the internet will vomit up harmful pseudoscience all over the place. Thankfully, some people out there who actually know what they're talking about are willing to explain the facts as understood by the real experts.

Knowledge was super effective! Here's to the ongoing sh*tshow of self-righteous stupidity that would seem hellbent on clogging up our news feeds. The ignorance alone is the most cancerous thing here.

Chris Pratt and Ryan Reynolds Continue to Show Us They're a Couple Real Life Superheroes

Honestly torn over who we love more at this point...Ryan Reynolds or Chris Pratt. Both of these guys are real life superheroes, and continue to display an incredible ability to balance the demands of being A-list celebrities, with touching the lives of fans who fell upon hard times, and bad luck. Yesterday we ran a post on Ryan Reynolds who shared a heartwarming tribute to his 14 year old fan (and friend) that'd lost his battle with cancer; and today we've got Star Lord. Love these guys!

As if we needed more reasons to love Ryan Reynolds, right? Ryan Reynolds took to his Facebook page to honor the late Connor McGrath, who Reynolds met at Edmonton hospital when McGrath was still battling cancer. The two enjoyed an advanced screening of Deadpool together. McGrath has since passed away, and Reynolds honors him in a truly moving way. RIP Connor.

In a super-touching image, a British Mom posted a back-to-school picture of her daughter Emily after losing her to childhood cancer in a super-effective effort to raise awareness of the disease.





She is encouraging everyone on Facebook to "Go Gold for Cancer Awareness" on your profile pic, like this:

Criss Angle directed Dee Snider in this stripped down version of Twisted Sister's hit "We're Not Gonna Take It". Angel's direction of the video is clearly in support of his children's cancer foundation, CrissAngelHELP.com and for the upcoming Children's Cancer awareness month of September. Unfortunately the video ended up a big ball of cringe for Snider and Angel.


Three cheers to them for raising awareness for Children's Cancer!

Unfortunately, it didn't detract from Snider looking like a worn-out and leathered Legolas, or from the idea that Criss Angel just isn't a good enough Magician to make Cancer disappear.

Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, and Gwyneth Paltrow visited Ryan Wilcox, an 18-year-old who's been diagnosed with leukemia the second time. "She (Paltrow) told me this is a gift from one mom to another mom," Ryan's mom, Amy Wilcox, told the Associated Press. "She knew how happy it would be for me to see Ryan so happy."

Before we dive into the pictures that have surfaced from their visit, check out this profoundly heartwarming video Chris Evans sent Wilcox before their arranged visit, where he tells Wilcox to keep up 'n keep fighting on.

Ryan Reynolds' dear friend, 13-year-old Connor McGrath just passed away after battling cancer for multiple years. The following was posted by Reynolds on his Facebook page, following McGrath's passing:

For three straight years, my friend, Connor McGrath drop-kicked cancer... Not sure how... Maybe the cancer cheated... But the fight came to an end two nights ago.

In my wildest dreams, I can't imagine how hard this is for his parents Kim and Gerald - along with his extended family in Newfoundland.

Connor was 13. But this kid... He was smart. He was funny. And not just funny 'for a kid' - or funny 'for a person battling something awful'. He was unqualified funny. He had that... thing.

That thing you see in great performers or comedy writers. A running commentary/observational skill people are just lucky to be born with.

He went way too early and it's impossible to reconcile. Connor was a great friend, a great son, and a light to the people lucky enough to know him. While repeatedly punching cancer in the balls, he made everyone laugh. Including the entire staff who cared for him at Edmonton's Stollery Children's Hospital.

It was the Make-A-Wish Foundation that brought us together. I can't thank them enough. Seriously. Thank you. Because of his wish, Connor was the first person to see Deadpool. I traveled up to Edmonton, Alberta to surprise him with a rough cut of the film. There were still huge sections with wires we hadn't yet painted out, jokes which weren't working (and still aren't) and green screens. Connor didn't seem to mind. And I'd never felt luckier to get to be Wade Wilson.

***Before you jump down my throat for showing a 13 year old an R-Rated film, please know this kid knew more swear words than a British chef.

I went back to Edmonton 6 weeks later and I wish I could say things were looking up. After my visit, I didn't know if I was saying goodbye or see ya later. Sitting here now, I realize it was both.

I'm grateful I got to orbit Connor's world for a brief time. Grateful for the pages and pages of hilarious texts between us. Grateful to his parents for allowing Connor to spend time with a foul-mouthed child in the body of a 39 year old.

I called Connor, "Bubba". And he called me "Bubba2". We met because he loved Deadpool. In a certain sense he WAS Deadpool. Or, at least everything Deadpool aspires to be; balancing pain, fearlessness, love and a filthy (filthy!) sense of humor in one body. I wish he could've stuck around a lot longer.

If you'd like to donate to The Make-A-Wish Foundation, I can pretty much guarantee, your money's going to a damn good place. These people do not suck. They are heroic. Full stop. http://makeawishna.ca/wishes/donate

My deepest condolences and thanks to Kim, Gerald and the entire clan McGrath -- who loved this little boy so very well. And thankfully, Connor knew it.

See ya down the road, Bubba.
