This isn’t about religion, it’s about good people being kind to other living things. All kinds of people from different backgrounds would have done the same thing. I don’t care what religion you are, who you are, or where you’re from, you rescued the little birds and that’s all that matters. Good job lads.
To many people, the storm sewer is a murky and perhaps loathsome fixture that only becomes noteworthy when it clogs and floods the street. But Kyle Naegeli, a 15-year-old high-school student in Texas, says the storm drain 40 feet from his house is so much more: It’s an untapped fishing paradise teeming with silvery bluegill and corpulent catfish, none of which a sane person would want to eat.
A teenager shoved a puppy face down into a bucket of freezing water in a mimic of the ‘ice bucket challenge’ fundraising craze. In a clip posted online, the dog could be seen desperately trying to wriggle free, yelping as her owner thrust her into the water.

Watch as Chris Cilfone dives in the waters off Maui, HI and discovers a school of Giant Oceanic Manta Rays.
A group of kayakers were treated to an amazing (and heart-stopping) close encounter with a humpback whale earlier this summer.

But she said she was shocked when the whale swam up to her kayak and then dove right underneath it. Check it out!
Leap. It’s the hardest thing to do in life. Rocky the French bulldog knows it. You know it. The Thundercats knew it. Yet sometimes we forget. We cling to where we are in life, whether it be a job, a relationship, the edge of a sofa. We convince ourselves that it’s not worth the risk. But this brave frenchie is a reminder that when you leap, good things will happen in life. Thank you, Rocky.
