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."

Alexander Steinberg, an 18-year-old aspiring filmmaker managed to put together a video that encourages us all as an audience to take a minute, and ask ourselves, 'why does Pokémon GO! matter?'

Does it really? Or is there something more meaningful, impactful 'afoot? Is it the game's ability to unite strangers that'd otherwise never cross paths? One quote captured in the video sticks out in particular:

“You know my favorite part about this? Number one my brother and I used to play this as kids. He ends up passing away,” CrobinMaxxis said, pointing up. “He’s up there still, still, having a better fuckin’ collection than I do. But all the violence in the world, brutality, all this fucking racism. Look around here. You see this?” he said, gesturing to the crowd. “Not a single one is the same. Everyone is having a good time. This is what the world needs now.”

Aussie Grandfather Posts an ad for a 'Fishing Mate' and the World's Reaction is Heartwarming.

This widowed Aussie old timer got more than he bargained for, in the best way possible, when he posted an ad to a local website looking for a new 'fishing mate'. 

The internet got a hold of his ad and recirculated it on sites like twitter and imgur, and before long he had been flooded with support and offers to go fishing.

Someone even went and started a gofundme for the old bloke to send him on a fishing trip.

From the description:


"We're just a couple of guys who have heard Rays story and want to see him have a good fishing trip.
At the moment the cost is to cover his return flight from Adelaide to Sydney and back home, accommodation, food expenses and any costs associated to get him fishing. Anything left will go to Ray himself or a charity if he chooses as such.
Should we raise above the required limit we can look at sending Ray around the country to fish with a few different people."


It's always nice to see people rally behind a good cause

What did she think after taking a stroll on the sand and putting her feet in the water?

"It's cold."
