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.

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.
