Eating Chocolate For Breakfast Could Turn You Into A Morning Person — Seriously!

Funny
If you're like me, you definitely aren't a morning person. It takes all my willpower sometimes to force myself to get out of my warm, cozy bed and get going. And like many others, I don't like dealing with anything before I've had my coffee. Up to this point, I've accepted the fact that this is just how I am, but now I know that my general disdain for the morning actually has a lot to do with what I eat for breakfast.According to nutritionist Rob Hobson, starting the day in a great mood is easy -- all you have to do is incorporate these 10 foods and drinks (including chocolate!) into your morning meals. 1. Fortified cereals that are high in fiber aren't only a good source of B vitamins -- they also help prevent seasonal affec...

If you haven't heard already, a large swath of northwestern Canada, near Calgary, the energy heartland of the country, is currently in flames. A fast-advancing wildfire is threatening thousands of homes and lives. The images coming from the front line of the fire are absolutely devastating.

This Is The Heartbreaking Reason Why Vets Don’t Want You To Buy Flat-Faced Dogs

Funny
I think we can all agree that pups like French bulldogs and pugs are cute. They're lovable, friendly, funny, and quite a few vets out there really don't want us to buy them. That sounds harsh, but the reason why isn't because they want to rob us of companionship. As it turns out, those precious, squishy faces we all know and love are doing pooches more harm than good. googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('VN_PG_DCBP_ATF'); }); Because of genetic bottlenecking (which we'll get to in a second), purebred gene pools are teeming with defects and mutations that actually cause our four-legged friends pain.

I recommend wearing headphones for this one. (source: AmaZing Video)Well, that's a little traumatic. I'm not sure if I'll ever be able to look at dry ice the same way again.Read more: http://www.viralnova.com/dry-ice-scream/

Of the 30 million Americans who suffer from an eating disorder, about 20 percent die without treatment. Another 20 percent of them never fully recover even if they do seek help; they spend their lives stuck in a state of self-loathing and loneliness. This is a heartbreaking reality for many, which is exactly why what 24-year-old Sophie Gajnik accomplished is so amazing.When she was in college, the Melbourne, Australia, native went from a cheerful, social person to a recluse who dropped out of her classes because school became too much for her.
