Like the fact that just living with pets is enough to lower a person's blood pressure and stress levels. Or every single part or Fred Rogers' existence; seriously, the man was amazing and an inspiration to many, many children.


In that spirit, Reddit user u/PM_YOUR_HAPPY asked:

You are less likely to transmit disease to patients."

The second sign boosted hand washing 57% greater than the first sign.

Canada and Denmark have "Fought" over tiny Hans Island, between Greenland and the Upper Reaches of what is now the Canadian Territory of Nunavut. It's technically where their out-to-sea borders overlap, and there is no official ruling anymore as to whose it is.

This has been going on for decades.

Our memories have been known to deceive us, as we might frequently forget someone's name or one of our numerous online passwords.

One last time. One last meal.

How do you chose a last meal?

People Break Down The Exact Moment They Realized Their Friends Were A-Holes

Most people have friends they've been close to for most of their lives.

But at the same time, friends evolve, and everyone finds themselves losing touch with any number of people they at one point considered their friends over time.
