Stranded 100 miles from where they needed to be, passengers on a United Airlines flight might have anticipated an aggravating journey home.

But the unexpected company of actor Keanu Reeves turned their road trip into a most excellent adventure.


Keanu Reeves might be the greatest argument in favor of human cloning. This man needs to be preserved for future generations.

On screen, Reeves might be your average international superstar, but off-screen he seems to be anything but. While most know the 54-year-old actor for his body of work, the legends surrounding real life encounters with the John Wick star are slowly outgrowing his Hollywood fame.

The latest involves a group of stranded airline passengers traveling from San Francisco to Burbank, California. When their United Airlines flight was diverted to Bakersfield for an emergency landing passengers were left stranded 100 miles from their destination.

Amidst the group of grounded travelers was Reeves, who, like everyone else, was now stuck in an empty Bakersfield airport looking for a way to get home.

But instead of being bothered by the delay or arranging private transport home, Reeves decided to make the most out of the situation and lead his fellow passengers on an epic road trip.

Even though it was Keanu, the story might have been too incredible to believe on it's own.

Fortunately fans were there to document the entire adventure.


When the plane was grounded, passengers found themselves in an empty Bakersfield airport 100 miles from Burbank.

So Reeves stepped up, talking with the airline and letting others now what was going on with their luggage and travel arrangements.


Many opted for a courtesy bus offered by the airline to take them on the last leg of the trip.

As everyone waited for the bus Keanu offered to take pictures with fans.





During the bus ride back to Burbank, Keanu entertained his travel companions with facts about Bakersfield.

He then played music from local artists through Youtube on his phone.



At the end of their journey, Keanu said goodbye to his travel partners, saying it was a "pleasure to meet you."

Then this hero walked off alone to get some food at a Carl's Jr (insert sunset here).


The moral of the story?

If you are going to get stuck on a bus with anyone, make damn sure sure it's Keanu Reeves.





Had it been any other celebrity the implausible adventure might have been too wild to believe.

But the legends of Keanu's down-to-earth kindness and approachability seem to get bigger every year.





Forget about action heroes!

For his next movie, Keanu should be starring as himself!

And if you're in the mood for another excellent adventure with Keanu Reeves, you're in luck. Reeves and his co-star Alex Winters announced a sequel to the film that made Reeves a household name is in the works. The next Bill and Ted installment is set to debut in 2020!

If you can't wait that long, you can get Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure and Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey in multiple formats here.

What is in the water in the United States that compels people to walk around in their homes with their shoes on? Try doing that in South Korea––people would be so mortified. I have a sibling whose apartment is carpeted from wall to wall and who walks around inside with his shoes on all the time, tracking in any manner of dirt and dust from outside. Egad! I get chills just thinking about it. And as an American, it's something I've noticed people from other countries love to comment on.

We learned a lot more about things that are considered normal in other countries after Redditor monitonik asked the online community,

"What's normal in your country that's considered weird in others?"

The brain a fascinating part of the body. No, its the most fascinating.

Scientists have said for years that we'll never know all about the brain and its functions.

So if it is so fascinating and so capable and awesome... why does it stall? Why does it overload?

Why aren't we all gifted with photographic memory? The brain definitely has a full storage issue. And we all suffer.

Redditor u/MABAMA45 wanted everyone to fess up to and just embrace all the things the brain can't handle by asking:

What can your brain just not comprehend?

Going to college is an exciting experience. You meet new people, learn about the world and the inner workings of society, and make lasting friendships. As fun (and expensive *cough, cough*) as higher education can be there is a reason that only one-third of the US population 25 and older have been able to complete a four-year degree program. It is hard and burnout is real.

Going through university was filled with both happiness and sometimes tears for me. I loved school and found my classes interesting, dove into extracurriculars, and had that perfectionist drive to get all A's... totally not sustainable. It hit me I was totally burnt out about two years in while enrolled in an algebra class.
