The Woolsey wildfires burning in California have destroyed many homes, displaced residents in danger, and even brought people together as they try to survive this disaster.


To make things a little easier on those struggling, Lady Gaga visited a Red Cross evacuation center earlier this week. She brought pizzas, coffee, and gift cards to the people who had to evacuate. She encouraged others to do what they could to spread kindness, as November 13th was apparently World Kindness Day.

"I'm on my way now to a shelter in California to be with people who have evacuated their homes. It's one of my acts of kindness for today and I encourage you to do the same. Be kind."

The singer spent over an hour at the center, handing out what she had brought, encouraging people to take advantage of the mental health counselors, and singing to a 98-year-old woman.

It was a wonderful gesture.

















Gaga's Born This Way Foundation has partnered with Starbucks and SoulCycle to support the firefighters and their efforts to contain the fires. Gaga herself was forced to evacuate last week when the flames started getting close to her Malibu home.

There are few things more satisfying than a crisp $20 bill. Well, maybe a crisp $100 bill.

But twenty big ones can get you pretty far nonetheless.

Whether it's tucked firmly in a birthday card, passing from hand to hand after a knee-jerk sports bet, or going toward a useful tool, the old twenty dollar bill has been used for countless purposes.

I realize that school safety has been severely compromised and has been under dire scrutiny over the past decade and of course, it should be. And when I was a student, my safety was one of my greatest priorities but, some implemented rules under the guise of "safety" were and are... just plain ludicrous. Like who thinks up some of these ideas?

One of the golden rules of life? Doctors are merely human. They don't know everything and they make mistakes. That is why you always want to get another opinion. Things are constantly missed. That doesn't mean docs don't know what they're doing, they just aren't infallible. So make sure to ask questions, lots of them.

Redditor u/Gorgon_the_Dragon wanted to hear from doctors about why it is imperative we always get second and maybe third opinions by asking... Doctors of Reddit, what was the worse thing you've seen for a patient that another Doctor overlooked?

When we think about learning history, our first thought is usually sitting in our high school history class (or AP World History class if you're a nerd like me) being bored out of our minds. Unless again, you're a huge freaking nerd like me. But I think we all have the memory of the moment where we realized learning about history was kinda cool. And they usually start from one weird fact.

Here are a few examples of turning points in learning about history, straight from the keyboards of the people at AskReddit.
