Same-sex couples dancing in music videos are typically no big deal in American media. P!nk's newest video, for the track Secrets, would hardly make waves in many places - but Turkey isn't one of them. Officials at the Turkish Radio And Television Supreme Council (RTUK) were so offended by the video that they're issuing fines to channels that play it.

Much of the world sees P!nk as the encouraging "cool mom" of music, but Turkish officials worry that she's potentially a bad influence on kids. The Council claims that the video features "erotic dance figures of a homosexual nature" and believes that young people could be confused and negatively influenced by the imagery. As punishment, the Council has fined at least one channel 17,000 Turkish lira. That converts to just over $2750.00 USD. The video features couples, some same sex, dancing against a graffiti wall. At some points, the dancers grind against one another and the male dancers are sometimes shirtless. P!nk, herself, dances with another woman while "pinned" to the wall.

I'm going to be perfectly honest––I'm a city boy. I'm not a huge fan of hiking or camping. I happen to be a huge fan of running water. Have you heard of it? It's great. Highly recommended.

I've also, on a more humorous note, watched far too many horror films over the years and don't particularly like idea of running off into the woods only to piss off some demon that was perfectly fine until I arrived. I also have immense respect for our friendly neighborhood serial killers and demonstrate this regularly by staying out of their territory.

Those who love the great outdoors had plenty to share after Redditor Your_Normal_Loser asked the online community, "

Hikers of Reddit, what is the weirdest or creepiest thing you've come across while hiking?"

Time is of the essence. And time is not definable. Those are lessons we learn as we get older; as times passes and fluctuates in front of us.

Time is always fleeting yet always catches up to us. I find myself shocked when I wake up on certain days and realize I'm a particular age of my parent that sticks out for me.

Like, how did that happen? I guess I should just be thankful I'm still here to witness it all.

Redditor u/TW1103 wanted to discuss the meaning... of time and all of its affects by asking:

What fact really puts the scale of time into an insane perspective?
