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.

From our childhood through our adult years, one thing we all dream of from time to time is all the things we could do if we had unlimited resources. Buy a castle and become your own anti-hero, solve world hunger, adopt ALL the animals, live on an endless cruise around the world, heck, buy a whole political party *cough cough*.

I admit that I am not a picky eater by any stretch of the imagination. I eat just about anything. I also consider myself pretty adventurous; when I travel, eating good food and trying the local cuisine is at the top of my list!

But even I would be hard-pressed to eat durian or even balut.

Would I say absolutely not? I'll have to get back to you after a trip to Southeast Asia. The jury's out for now.

People had very strong opinions on the food they want nothing to do with after Redditor KentuckyFriedEel asked the online community,

"What dish/food can f*** right off?"

Death is inevitable. It's a truth we're always trying to outrun. Yet we do so many things to speed up the process.

Everyday we are helping ourselves to an early grave. And there are so many ways to avoid that trip. People are telling us all of the time how we can be healthier and better. There are literally books and blogs about ways to keep on keeping on.

So why don't we try and follow some of these ideas. And maybe we should begin trying to pinpoint were we are off and how we could try and avoid that which is poisoning us. Like carbs, well too many carbs, at least for me.

Redditor u/Babynouil wanted everyone to listen up, to make sure we live as long as possible, by asking:

What's something a lot of people do, but don't realise it's shrinking their life expectancy ?

Whether it's a minor inconveniences, people being unaware of their annoyances, or things that just don't make sense, it can stir up some pretty strong emotions.

Now, anger is a totally normal and healthy emotion, but sometimes a high level of anger doesn't seem warranted. However, when those minor inconveniences add up, suddenly we are on a rampage just looking to get mad at it every time it happens.

It could be from someone cutting you off in traffic or the sound of someone chewing. Regardless, it can cause some serious internal turmoil for some people.

Redditor BaconBear36 wanted to know:

"What is something that makes you unreasonably angry?"

Try not to get mad reading this.
