Thirteen year old Daylin Campbell got a surprise from the Polk County Sheriff's office after his bike was stolen.


For Christmas, Daylin received a new bike. Though the gift was one he'd never forget, the joy was bittersweet.

Daylin was battling leukemia and didn't have the strength to ride the bike. When he found out he was in remission, he was excited to finally have the chance to take it for a spin.

But before he could take even one ride, the bike was stolen from his family's front porch.

But Daylin wasn't miserable for long. Polk County sheriffs showed up at Daylin's house with a brand new bike and helmet for the teenager.

The good deed was caught on video:

The sheriffs posed for photos with the family. They said they hope this gift allows Daylin to be a normal teenager.

Canice Jordan, Daylin's mother, was truly moved by the actions of the sheriffs and took to Facebook to express the family's thanks:


People were overjoyed at the actions of the sheriffs:

There are few things more satisfying than a crisp $20 bill. Well, maybe a crisp $100 bill.

But twenty big ones can get you pretty far nonetheless.

Whether it's tucked firmly in a birthday card, passing from hand to hand after a knee-jerk sports bet, or going toward a useful tool, the old twenty dollar bill has been used for countless purposes.

I realize that school safety has been severely compromised and has been under dire scrutiny over the past decade and of course, it should be. And when I was a student, my safety was one of my greatest priorities but, some implemented rules under the guise of "safety" were and are... just plain ludicrous. Like who thinks up some of these ideas?

Redditor u/Animeking1108 wanted to discuss how the education system has ideas that sometimes are just more a pain in the butt than a daily enhancement... What was the dumbest rule your school enforced?

One of the golden rules of life? Doctors are merely human. They don't know everything and they make mistakes. That is why you always want to get another opinion. Things are constantly missed. That doesn't mean docs don't know what they're doing, they just aren't infallible. So make sure to ask questions, lots of them.

Redditor u/Gorgon_the_Dragon wanted to hear from doctors about why it is imperative we always get second and maybe third opinions by asking... Doctors of Reddit, what was the worse thing you've seen for a patient that another Doctor overlooked?

When we think about learning history, our first thought is usually sitting in our high school history class (or AP World History class if you're a nerd like me) being bored out of our minds. Unless again, you're a huge freaking nerd like me. But I think we all have the memory of the moment where we realized learning about history was kinda cool. And they usually start from one weird fact.

Here are a few examples of turning points in learning about history, straight from the keyboards of the people at AskReddit.

U/Tynoa2 asked: What's your favourite historical fact?
