Those of us outside of Washington State might not be aware of the fierce rivalry between the Washington State University Cougars and the University of Washington Huskies. Each year, the two school's football teams clash in The Apple Cup, which moves back and forth between the two school's stadiums. When the event is held at WSU, UW must travel over the mountains to the small town of Pullman, where weather can cause serious concerns.



This year, on Thanksgiving day, snow caused a bus full of University of Washington marching band students to overturn in the town of George, Washington (real place).



Thankfully, no students were seriously injured, althougha "couple dozen" had to be treated for "cuts, concussions, and pain." Residents of George stepped up and cared for the injured band members, opening a local elementary school so that the nearly 300 people traveling with UW could treat their wounded and "regroup."



The 500 residents of George, who all happen to be WSU fans, went above and beyond to share their Thanksgiving with the band in need.

When the WSU band learned of the accident and realized the UW band wouldn't be able to make it to the Apple Bowl, they knew they had to do something. In the less than 24 hours before the big game, they learned their rivals' fight song and used it to open the yearly battle. A section of the stadium was also left empty in honor of the band members who couldn't attend.




The Cougars would go on to lose the Apple Cup, but they won the hearts of many people on Twitter:








UW and WSU have taught us all that even the most bitter rivals can be there for each other when there is true need. The Apple Cup is cold every year, but our hearts have been sufficiently warmed.

How you approach life's many trials and tribulations can say a lot about who you are. However, many of us don't necessarily learn some lessons so easily.

Life is complicated. It's messy. Few, if any things, go according to plan. On top of that, sometimes the way we handle our relationships or our obligations might not be the most healthy one.

You live, you learn... or so the saying goes.

You're hungry one night, so you order food. You select your items, go to place your order, and see that the order has an extra $15 in fees tacked on to it, and that's not even including tip!

Believe it or not, there was a time before delivery services. You can very easily just call the restaurant you want and place the order directly. It's pretty easy–and you and the restaurant get to avoid the middle man.

But delivery services have become so ubiquitous over the years that many of us just put up with it. They're legitimate services but honestly, when you see the final price tag, how could you not feel like you've been totally scammed?

When you really think about it, childhood is actually just rife with trauma.

The things we see as children, are things we are never going to escape. And nobody fully prepares you for it.

Every child born should be assigned a therapist along with a pediatrician.

Life is going to bombard us with memories we'll never unsee, because the actions of humans are random and as a child we're forced to watch.

The mark is left. So let's hear about some trauma.

Redditor Banjoman653 wanted to hear from everybody willing to share some childhood tales, by asking:

"What’s a really f**ked up thing you’ve witnessed as a kid but didn’t realise it was until you were older?"
