For our son's birthday we surprised him with an xBox 360 Elite & The Halo 3 Legendary Edition and a friend and his wife even pitched in for a controller. The thing is, Nik has always been sick or hurt for his last few birthdays. This year he broke his collar bone playing soccer and we wanted to do something really special. We kept telling him money was tight & we couldn't afford an xBox 360 or the game but "maybe we could rent it for you one weekend."

Game between Al Nahdha and Al Ittihad on Thursday reaffirms the notion of sportsmanship - while simultaneously justifying every evil thought you've ever thought about a referee.

Al Nahdha's goalkeeper Taisir Al Antaif was about to make a clearance early in the second half with the scores still at 2-2 - but noticed that his shoelace had come undone, and was clearly nervous about his boot coming off as he kicked.

The opposing striker bearing down on him, a Brazilian by the name of Jobson, noticed what was going on - but instead of trying to take advantage, he ran up to his opponent and did his shoelace for him.

Al Antaif slapped his new friend on the back as thanks, and gave him a high five afterwards before getting on with the game.

But, here's where it turned sourpenalising the keeper for taking too long with his clearance.

He awarded an indirect free kick inside the area, and the home side lined up, clearly fearing the worst as Al Ittihad's strike force discussed their attacking options.

But in one of the most subtle and greatest insults given to a match official, Al Ittihad did the decent thing and merely passed the ball safely off the pitch. Even the supporters cheered at the gesture.

In a single stroke, the players managed to endorse a magnificent moment of sportsmanship between two opponents, while highlighting what an idiot the referee had made of himself.

This video is the BBC Programme "That's Life" aired in 1988. The most touching video ever.

Friends of a man who has been arrested five times for drink-driving have staged an elaborate prank in a bid to prevent him doing the same again.
YouTube prankster Tom Mabe, of 'MabeInAmerica', from Louisville, Kentucky, decided to take matters into his own hands when his friend passed out after his latest bender.
Using an office mocked up as a hospital theatre, and a team of actors who posed as medical teams, he convinced his pal he had been in a coma for 10 years.
looks too staged, even for a something that's supposed to be staged...

John blacked out and doesn’t remember what happened. Lucy, a husky-beagle mix, who was also injured, limped to a nearby dentist’s office and barked until helparrived. She limped back and stayed by John’s side until emergency crews arrived.

About 40 people helped the staff who were pushing the car upon hearing an announcement that a passenger has been trapped.


This is heart warming.

Authorities said the inmate escaped from a minimum security facility in Lexington on Sunday. As temperatures dropped into the low single digits Monday, officials say the man walked into a motel and asked the clerk to call police.

Robert Vick, 42, of Hartford told the clerk he wanted to turn himself in and escape the arctic air, Lexington police spokeswoman Sherelle Roberts said.
