An anonymous hacker, known only on Twitter as @WauchulaGhost, and a few of their friends hijacked several Twitter accounts that were known to be associated or in support of ISIS.  This has been going on for a few months, @WauchulaGhost is apparently affiliated with the "hacktivist" group Anonymous. After the attack in Orlando, they and some others have stared adding rainbows, messages saying "Out and Proud" and even some links to gay porn to these compromised accounts. According to Newsweek, the hacker claims to have taken over at least 200 accounts and plans to continue this campaign.

This woman posted a photo gallery of her story on Imgur which led to a diagnosis of a genetic disease that affects connective tissues called Ehlers Danlos Syndrome (EDS). She explains the backstory in the description of the follow up picture post:

Five months ago, I posted "The Story Of A Broken Dancer." In this post, I told the story of how all I've ever wanted was to be a professional dancer, but that countless injuries and unexplained medical issues were coming in between me and my dream. Well, after posting this, hundreds of Imgurians commented on the post and messaged me saying I should look at different conditions or diseases they thought I had, but one that I received overwhelmingly was "Ehlers Danlos Syndrome (EDS), Hyper Mobility Type III." I looked into it and decided it was worth a shot to get the testing done, and as of this morning, I have been officially confirmed to have EDS.


You can look through her original gallery right here:

This picture was taken at Horsetail Fall in Yosemite National Park. Apparently this happens every year but it's hard to catch a picture at just the right moment. Photographer Sangeeta Dey explained this on a post about her own picture on Facebook:

Every year for two weeks in February, the sun sets at a certain angle and illuminates the waterfall in luminescent orange and red, making it look like a fluid fire. I’ve met photographers who said that they have been coming for 11 years only to see this happen 2 or 3 times.

Dude Trolls a Wrong Number Asking to Buy Drugs, Sends Mystery Buyer to an Abandoned Building

This guy got a text from someone who obviously thought he was their drug dealer. Since the recipient of the messages wasn't actually a drug dealer, he decided to troll the wrong number instead, leading him to an abandoned building with, presumably, an armful of McDonald's. At least he won't go hungry?

Toddlers Recreate This Years Oscar Nominees

The Tumblr blog Don't Call Me Oscar is run by photographer Maggie Storino. These adorable recreations of the Best Picture nominees are not just cute, they can tell the future. Storino told Mashable, "A little known fact about 'Don't Call Me Oscar' is that it's a good predictor of the Oscar winner; since we've been on Tumblr, the photo with the most notes has won Best Picture 3 out of 4 years."

Molly the elephant seal has been spending a few weeks in with humans in Tasmania's Bruny Island.  She mostly spends her time relaxing in someone's back yard.

She just wants to hang out with the locals. Although she doesn't seem to be very dangerous she still leaves a path of destruction in her wake.

That's why she has to be lured back to the wild with a big fish on a string. Who knows how long she'll stay away though, this isn't the first time she's come to visit.

Did you think the internet was going to let you go one day without creating a new trend that simultaneously makes your teeth hurt and your arteries clog just by looking at it? Don't be ridiculous!

Feast your eyes on the frosting-stuffed croissant. It's not limited to red velvet flavor, they also have birthday cake, cookies and cream and more.

This heartfelt letter washed up in a bottle from the ocean to be found by Steve Mershon.  The letter says this:

Dear Daniel, I'm really sorry that you pass away. And if you were alive me and you will be playing football, soccer and basketball with Mathew, Oscar and Brandon. I am in the fifth grade and you were my best friend and our favorite song was Austin Moon and I hope you have fun with Jesus.
 
From your best friend, 
Jonathan Torres


Mershon posted pictures of this message, along with a note to Jonathan on Facebook:

Dear Jonothan Torres.. My name is Steve, and I found your note in a bottle on a beautiful Tuesday morning, April 19th.. First of all, let me tell you what a strong little man you are for writing your best friend that letter.. You show so much love in your heart way beyond your years.. Your parents, friends,teachers,myself, and all of my friends who know I found your letter are so proud of you.. Daniel is a lucky guy to have you as a best friend.. I'm so sorry he passed.. As your letter states, you guys must've played a lot of sports together with Mathew, Oscar and Brandon. I'm sure Daniel would want you to know that when you guys are playing sports, he and Jesus are watching and rooting for you.. Perhaps your next touchdown, goal, or basket you can dedicate to your best friend Daniel. I don't know where you threw your note in the ocean, or how long it was in the water, but it landed in the right hands, Jonothan.. You see, I find lots of things on the beach, and the best ones I keep.. I have shelves full of wood, shells, sunglasses and, yes, bottles.. Jonothan, your bottle, with your letter to your best friend, is the most beautiful thing I have ever found. It would trump anything in my collection.. But I can't.. Won't.. You threw that bottle out to show your love for your best friend.. It is meant to be shared.. I took pictures of it, and shared it with friends on my Facebook page.. It tugged at many heartstrings, Jonothan.. But it's going to be shared with more people.. Like I said, it fell into the right hands.. You see, I think Daniel put the bottle ashore where I found it, and his friend Jesus led me to it. I'll tell you why. I've had plans for a few weeks to go way out on the ocean on a big cruise ship. I'm going to take your letter and your bottle with me. I'm going to add my own little letter to it, Jonothan, and put the cork back in it, and when I find the deepest, prettiest, most blue water I can find, I'm going to throw it back in.. So someone else, along with their friends, can see the love in your heart. You're a good man, Jonothan. I'm hoping maybe, just maybe, the world can see the love in one fifth graders heart, and we can, one by one, all get along.. Peace, little man!

This dog was turning heads on his way to a first class airplane seat. The origin of this spoiled pup remains a mystery. Though onlookers may be snickering at this extra large dog being pulled around in a fancy cart like a Roman emperor, he's the one getting the last laugh. This dog is obviously living in the lap of luxury.
