The world can be a stressful place unless, of course, you're a dog who's getting his head brushed. If that's the case, literally everything is okay and there's not a thing in the world that could make you feel uncomfortable. Twitter user Ian Laking shared footage of a golden retriever having its head gently brushed and it may just be cute enough to calm viewers down vicariously.



The video, which was first discovered on Reddit, has been passed around all over the internet, bringing calm wherever it goes.

Twitter users couldn't stress what a big deal this footage is.

The clip seems to have an almost physiological effect on viewers!



Other petting clips are fine, but lack a certain something...



But whatever the secret is to a great "dog being brushed" video, this one has it!

Many Twitter users wished they were in this lucky pup's shoes.




There's a reason golden retrievers are so popular...it's because they're the cutest darn things!



This canine has its priorities in order.



Thanks to you, Ian, for helping thousands of stressed-out humans remember to enjoy a good brushing every once in a while. The world can be a hard place, but it's not so bad when you treat yourself right!

The truth matters.

Something one would think was a given in modern society.

Yet all over the world, there are people so unbelievably stubborn, that they simply refuse to believe the facts.

Sometimes even when presented with evidence.

This could be for something menial, such as refusing to believe that a cotton candy was actually invented by a dentist.

But sometimes, refusing to believe the truth could have serious consequences, up to and including climate change, the effectiveness of masks, and the disproportionate amount of gun violence in the US.

Redditor Lady_Of_The_Water was curious about the many things, both frivolous and serious, people refused to believe were true, leading them to ask:
