VIDEO: Homeless People Share Their Stories, One Piece of Cardboard at a Time

Originally posted 07/23/2014 04:15PM

It's easier just to look down and pretend you don't see that homeless person on the street corner, but you're not fooling yourself: You know he's there, you know he's homeless, and in spite of that, you also know he's still a person.

Rethink Homelessness, a Florida-based advocacy group, has found a handy way to remind the more fortunate of homeless humanity. In the above video, homeless Orlando residents display cardboard signs explaining who they were in better times. The result can be heart-wrenching.

VIDEO: See This Old Man Throw Away His Crutches and Get Down to Boogie

We don't know much about this video of an old man throwing his caution and his crutches to the wind, but we are sure you will enjoy it all the same.

In a clip posted by Peruvian Facebook user Edgard Eleuterio Daza, an elderly man is seen politely rocking back and forth to Bill Haley's "Rock Around the Clock," before the raw power of Haley's grooves inspires him to abandon all thought of self-preservation, throwing aside his pair of forearm crutches with the flair of John Travolta in Saturday Night Fever.

The man's boldness caught the attention of the ladies on the dance floor, and soon he was swimming in female attention.

WATCH: This All-Male Dance Troupe's '2 Legit 2 Quit' Routine Is 2 Good 2 Pass Up

Originally posted 07/22/2014 02:30AM

MC Hammer wasn't lying when he said he was, in fact, too legitimate to retire, because 22 years later, "2 Legit 2 Quit" still sounds awesome. And thanks to these guys, it looks pretty cool, too.

This video is the work of YouTube sensation Gabriel Valenciano, a.k.a. Super Selfie, whose online efforts pack a whole lot of dance moves into just a few seconds. He calls them Super Selfies because he arranges the music, creates the choreography, dances in them and then edits them together – all on a tight budget, to boot.

Beware of darkness … and also tree beetles.

Los Angeles Councilman Tom LaBonge told the Los Angeles Times that a pine tree planted near Griffith Park's Observatory in 2004 to honor late Beatle George Harrison has died after an infestation of – wait for it – tree beetles.

As the paper notes, "Except for the loss of tree life, Harrison likely would have been amused at the irony."
