Can I get a light?

Anti-Smoking PSA Ignites Viral Consciousness

Called by many “the best anti-smoking ad ever,” this campaign filmed children walking up to adult smokers, asking them for a light.

Every adult took the opportunity to remind the children that smoking was bad and rattled off the health consequences.

The children replied, “If it’s so bad, why are you smoking?” before handing them an anti-smoking leaflet.

Europe, according to others.

by on Oct.22, 2013, under Travel

Everybody goes straight to the country they identify the closest with, and checks to see if the interpretation matches their own.

Here’s Italy, for example:

Greyhound Delay

Greyhound killer believed man he beheaded was an alien

Again… a grisly viral meme.

NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART/STOMACH/ETC.

That’s why it’s not inserted, but rather linked, here:

http://news.ca.msn.com/canada/greyhound-killer-believed-man-he-beheaded-was-an-alien

Here’s a brief excerpt of what’s been passed our way several times this spring:

Greyhound Killer & VictimVince Li, who beheaded a fellow passenger aboard a Greyhound bus in Manitoba nearly four years ago, believed he was chosen by God to save people from an alien attack.

In an interview granted to Chris Summerville, CEO of the Schizophrenia Society of Canada, Li talks about his struggle with the voices that led to the fatal encounter with fellow bus passenger Tim McLean near Portage la Prairie, Man., on July 30, 2008.

Li, who only later understood the voice as schizophrenia, was convinced he was leading the third story of the Bible and “that I was like the second coming of Jesus.”

Monsanto & Cancer Milk

by on Jun.13, 2012, under Consumer, Current Affairs, Politics, Products

Who says Viral trends have to always be entertaining? This one is downright scary. This official description is here, reprinted without explicit permission:

FOX NEWS Reporters (Reporters Steve Wilson & Jane Akre) uncover that most of the Milk in the USA and across some parts of the world is unfit to drink due to Monsanto Corporation’s POSILAC®, which has been proven to be a cancer-causing growth hormone.(known in short as “BGH” “BST” or “rBGH” ), but they were fired for trying to tell people the truth. (Important note: After a long court battle, the Court dismissed the whistle blowers protection for the reporters because the Court stated that there was no law to force that the NEWS state the truth! Fact! Going on to say the NEWS was no different than other TV shows/reality shows!!) But the FDA has turned a blind eye once again! If you consumed or fed regular milk to your family today (8/21/08), there is more than a 90% chance that it was from a cow injected with BGH (Bovine somatotropin developed by using recombinant DNA technology). You could be killing or harming your child every time you pour them a glass of milk, the same as pouring them a glass of slow acting poison. Please take action to ensure our children’s safety, for they can not protect themselves. What first alarmed farmers was the massive amount of PUS in the milk but Monsanto and the FDA still had no concerns by stating that the PUS was not harmful to be ingested by consumers! If you have little children, at least feed them certified BGH free Milk, Organic Milk or Organic/BGM free milk equivalent like Organic soy milk.

If after reading this, you haven’t had a cow yet, take a look at the full video, here:

Spiderman Saves NYC from Rising Sea-Levels

by on Feb.21, 2012, under Design, Science & Nature

Global warming and rising sea levels pose a serious threat to Lower Manhattan, and some experts believe that rising waters could affect New York more than any other city in the world. The impending flood, be it from a storm or rising sea levels, has many architects thinking of viable solutions to save our great city. Two architecture students from the University of Pennsylvania, Tingwei Xu and Xie Zhang, think the solution is to build an elaborate lattice work bib on the shorelines of Downtown. The duo have designed an extensive membrane system that would guard the bottoms of Lower Manhattan buildings from messy floods.

Republican Geography

As much as i like to hear the voices of the people, i think they should either rehearse what they say, or cram a flag in their American Pie-holes.
