At a time when the world feels firmly and permanently divided, two young boys showed us all what true compassion and generosity looks like after they both went for the same foul ball at a recent MLB baseball game.


The heartwarming interaction happened during a matchup between the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Philadelphia Phillies after a Dodgers player hit a foul ball into the stands.

The two young Phillies fans both raced up the steps to grab the ball at about the same time. The boy that got there first turned around with the ball in his hand and simply offered it to the boy who got there right behind him.

As the two headed back to their seats, the boy who wound up with the ball gave the other boy a hug to thank him and they went their merry ways.

Luckily for all of us, the sweet moment was caught by TV cameras.

The video quickly went viral, with people praising the two boys for their kindness and maturity.






Someone clearly raised these two kids right.



We've certainly seen adults act much worse in similar circumstances.





Once officials became aware of what transpired, both boys ended up going home with game balls.

Which just goes to show:

if you do good things, good things often come your way.

And as the baseball commentator so aptly said:

"It doesn't matter how late or what day it is–it's always nice to be nice to the nice."

"Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the hottest and dumbest of them all?"

I know that is not verbatim the original quote, but it is close to the original.

Brains and beauty are always intertwined.

So often people confess about wanting to be more of the other.

No one is ever happy where they are. Why are we like that?

If given a chance, like a Disney movie, how do you trade?

Is it superficial to want looks over knowledge? Or vice versa?

Let's get deep....

Redditor BroodyBatman wanted to know who was willing to give up a little bit of brains for a whole lot of beauty, so they asked:

"Would you give up 15-20 IQ points to be really, REALLY ridiculously good looking? Why?"

The world is not so big a place, is it?

While we like to think of ourselves as isolated in this billion plus planet, there can be a lot more crossover than we think. We call these instances coincidences, hoping to find the right word to explain what happens when a one-in-a-million chance occurs.

If there's over seven billion plus people in the world, turns out you can run into these 'coincidences' more often than you think.

Let me make a quick point about conspiracy theories: Do people understand just how difficult it is for many of the conspiracies they claim to believe in to come to fruition? We're talking global levels of cooperation here, by the way, and it's clear the world can't even get itself out of a pandemic sooo...

But thankfully, there are some more innocent comnspiracies out there. For example, a former classmate once told me that he was convinced he couldn't remember all the items on his shopping list because of shopping elves distracting him to buy other things he didn't exactly need.

To be fair, he was a little stoned at the time and I told him he might want to consider just writing and referring to a shopping list.

People shared their thoughts with us after Redditor ConcentrateNext1734 asked the online community,

"What’s a conspiracy that you believe, but the majority of people don’t believe or know about?"

Children are very impressionable. They're also little humans, remember, and all quite different. Some are more afraid of some things than others. When I was a kid, some of my classmates were utterly terrified of Chucky, the killer doll.

I think he worked the best in the first film and to a larger extent in the second, but after that? Those movies got a bit ridiculous, wouldn't you agree?

Well, the memories linger, as you can imagine.

People took us on a trip down memory lane after Redditor teacatpeng asked the online community,

"What’s something you saw (as a kid) that gave you nightmares for a long time?"
