Talk about making the best of a bad situation.

With over $1.3 billion reported in damages due to the floods that are currently ravaging midwest plains, people are losing homes, cars and places of business.

But following a particularly bad flood by the Platte river which runs both near Omaha and Lincoln, two friends found something that lightened the mood, if even only a little.


Gayland Stouffer and Kyle Simpson were checking out the damages to Simpson's property in Schuyler when they saw an abandoned refrigerator.

Tanner Podraza posted the story to Facebook.

"Got a text message from the boys back at Duck Camp [ Lost Island ] The flood left plenty of damage but also left a surprise.... #NEBRASKASTRONG"

They found it completely stocked with ice cold Bud and Busch light.


The fridge itself was later identified as belonging to the Healy family, who own a seed company in Schuyler and a cabin nearby.

They noticed the fridge had scorch marks around the edges, just as theirs did, when it survived a house fire in 2007, according to the Omaha World-Herald.


Brian Healy was shocked that the fridge managed to survive the flood.

"I couldn't hardly believe they found it all intact," said Healy.

"The pictures really made me laugh."







So that fridge has apparently been through the ringer, but its survival has brought so many laughs.










The flooding in the midwest is ongoing.

At least three people have died after waters from snow-melt and the rain from the "bomb cyclone" that hit last week have raged through the flood plains.

This silver lining is nice, but the midwest could use your thoughts right now.

People Divulge Which Instances Of The Mandela Effect Freaked Them Out The Most

The Mandela effect is when multiple people share the same, incorrect memory.

Its name stems from when paranormal researcher Fiona Broome falsely believed that the future president of South Africa, Nelson Mandela, died in prison in the 1980s.

A false memory she shared with a number of others.

Our memories have been known to deceive us, as we might frequently forget someone's name or one of our numerous online passwords.

But when we share a memory that turns out to be false with many others, convincing ourselves it wasn't the truth can be a very difficult ordeal indeed.

One last time. One last meal.

How do you chose a last meal?

Let's hope we never have to find out.

People on death row get that option.

Do they deserve it?

Whose to say?

But they have it.

A steak. A pizza... Burger King.

The food world is their oyster.

Oyster. Also an option.

The menu is endless...

People Break Down The Exact Moment They Realized Their Friends Were A-Holes

Most people have friends they've been close to for most of their lives.

But at the same time, friends evolve, and everyone finds themselves losing touch with any number of people they at one point considered their friends over time.

Most of the time, this isn't intentional, but just simply happens.

On rare occasions though, people might realize that their friends were not exactly who they thought they were, and didn't like who they revealed themselves to be.

When visiting any foreign country, one should always be familiar with the laws and customs of the land.

After all, what might be generally accepted on your home turf, might be frowned upon, if not illegal, elsewhere.

For that matter, even locals might need a refresher course on what they can and can't do while at home.
