The days spent outside, shooting hoops by yourself would be a lot better with a cheering section, wouldn't they?

Certainly would have kept me outside more often.

Paul Stys got precisely that support.


In a video he shared to YouTube, the young man is practicing his shots, when a fan pulls up.


In Stys' video, as he's shooting the ball, a postal worker pulls up. In the video, you can hear her egging him on to try and impress her.

He takes on the challenge, running to the basket and dunking the ball.

His moves earn him a very solid "DAYUM!" from his fan.

Gotta admit, some nice moves from Paul!




The woman is a postal worker named Ebony. When she pulls up to the house, you can hear her say,

"Let me see what you got!"

If only all the mail deliverers were this positive.




Stys' video has gained wide attention, racking up over six million views and hundreds of thousands of likes. That's almost as much as the points he scores.

While it's great to see such positivity spread, it can be difficult knowing that the person who brought that positivity might not know her impact.

Which is why it's so great that Paul shared Ebony's new Instagram.



It didn't take much to convince people to go follow her new account.




These kinds of positive interactions help people to remain connected.

Just recently, a video on Facebook went viral, showing kids from different backgrounds playing together.

A Catholic boy interacting with a Muslim girl shows how easy it can be for people to get along, if they let it happen.

Sometimes I think back to a teacher I had when I was a kid who demanded to know whether any of us were "raised in a barn" in response to crappy behavior. Namely littering. She hated littering. Can you blame her? It's a horrible habit and some people do it with no sense of shame. She dedicated much of her time to telling students to pick up after themselves and dispose of things properly. For that, I'm thankful.

But why didn't anyone else get the memo? The trash I see on the streets is obscene.

People had lots of thoughts to share after Redditor SneakyStriedker876 asked the online community,

"What seemingly uncivilized thing is commonplace in society?"

I love presents. I try to hide my enthusiasm, and I do my best to appease the greater public by saying "it's the thought that counts." But that is a WHOLE lie. I don't just love gifts, I love great gifts. And if you go rogue from my lists, please keep a receipt. It's just plain rude to divert from what the recipient has requested.

This thought process has emerged from experience. I have received some trash presents over the years and now I'm too old to pretend you just went crazy while shopping. Like... "do you even know me?!"

Redditor u/sulemannkhann wanted to hear all about the presents some of us have received that we prayed, came with a receipt, by asking:

What's the worst birthday gift you ever got?

I'm still on the fence about this whole extraterrestrial situation. I need more proof. Now I'm not naive enough to think that in this vast, endless universe only the human race exists. I just need proof, tangible, solid, didn't see it from my trailer through beer goggles proof.

I also need proof about the afterlife, another out there topic. Truth be told, I've never been that into this whole conversation. I've got enough daily problems on this planet, let alone worrying about making Will Smith's biggest hits into documentaries and not just popcorn/comedy space farce.

But let's compare thoughts...

Redditor u/ValencikHannibal197 wanted to discuss life beyond this planet, what do we really think? They asked:

What's the best theory on UFOs or aliens you've ever heard??
