These Men Film Themselves Saving Lives During A Dramatic Apartment Fire.

0

Two men have become heroes after risking danger to themselves in order to save lives during a vicious apartment blaze. Spencer Butler and his friend were testing out their new GoPro camera nearby when they spotted the fire. Without even stopping to shut off the device, Spencer, his buddy and a couple of other passers-by rushed to the apartment complex to help in any way they can.

After reaching the premises, the guys stalked the corridors, breaking down doors and so on, in order to notify or rescue residents, both human and animal. The pair personally rescued three dogs, and no lives were lost in the fire – in large thanks to the brave actions of these everyday heroes.

The local fire department said that the blaze, which led to a partial roof collapse, was caused by a bolt of lightning striking the building. Spencer has asked for people to donate to the Fire Relief Fund instead of making any profit from the video. Details of how to do this can be found at the beginning of the footage.

When you start watching this video it seems to show yet another everyday high school dance-off. The first guy throws down some awesome breakdance moves as his opponent, a geeky-looking scrawny kid, stands by watching. This first kid has his audience of high schoolers eating out of his hand. Surely there can only be one winner?

But then, unexpectedly, the scrawny kid flips into his own, mesmerizing routine. He b-boys around the first guy with incredible skill, as the gathered throng go absolutely wild! Seriously, he busts out moves that wouldn’t have looked out of place on the Bronx streets of the late 1970s.

Fisherman Johnny Beau was going about his daily business, thirty miles off the coast of New York, when he came across the carcass of a 40 foot whale. To make things even more interesting, he also noticed that a group of 12 foot Great White Sharks were feasting on the mammoth whale.

Johnny immediately whipped out his GoPro camera and captured some incredible underwater footage of the sharks feeding on the carcass. You can see the devastating bite marks on the body of the whale, which are a testament to the Great White’s vicious jaw. The video also shows them circling Johnny’s fishing boat and playing with his camera!

Bruce Lee Offers Us An Incredible Life Lesson Using Just Four Words.

Few would think that there were any philosophical underpinnings to martial arts. It’s just people fighting, right?! Indeed, I doubt that, for example, Kickboxing lies on any grand metaphysical foundations. I can’t imagine Jean-Claude Van Damme was channeling Arthur Schopenhauer or Immanuel Kant when he was running riot in Universal Soldier.

However, things are different when it comes to Kung Fu. The ancient Chinese martial art is based on, and inspired by, the country’s grand philosophical traditions. it’s most famous proponent, Bruce Lee, was influenced by Taoist philosophy, which instructs its followers to live in harmony with the ways of nature.

Back in 1961, he wrote:

“After four years of hard training in the art of gung fu (kung fu), I began to understand and felt the principle of gentleness — the art of neutralizing the effect of the opponent’s effort and minimizing expenditure of one’s energy. All this must be done in calmness and without striving. It sounded simple, but in actual application it was difficult. The moment I engaged in combat with an opponent, my mind was completely perturbed and unstable. Especially after a series of exchanging blows and kicks, all my theory of gentleness was gone. My only thought left was somehow or another I must beat him and win.

My instructor, Professor Yip Man, head of the wing chun school, would come up to me and say: ‘Relax and calm your mind. Forget about yourself and follow your opponent’s movement. Let your mind, the basic reality, do the countermovement without any interfering deliberation. Above all, learn the art of detachment.

That was it! I must relax. However, right here I had already done something contradictory, against my will. When I said I must relax, the demand for effort in ‘must’ was already inconsistent with the effortlessness in ‘relax.’ When my acute self-consciousness grew to what the psychologists call the ‘double-blind’ type, my instructor would again approach me and say: ‘Preserve yourself by following the natural bends of things and don’t interfere. Remember never to assert yourself against nature; never be in frontal opposition to any problem, but control it by swinging with it. Don’t practice this week. Go home and think about it.

The following week I stayed home. After spending many hours in meditation and practice, I gave up and went sailing alone in a junk. On the sea I thought of all my past training and got mad at myself and punched at the water. Right then at that moment, a thought suddenly struck me: Wasn’t this water, the very basic stuff, the essence of gung fu? Didn’t the common water illustrate to me the principle of gung fu? I struck it just now, but it did not suffer hurt. Again I stabbed it with all my might, yet it was not wounded. I then tried to grasp a handful of it but it was impossible. This water, the softest substance in the world, could fit itself into any container. Although it seemed weak, it could penetrate the hardest substance in the world. That was it! I wanted to be like the nature of water.”

This was Lee’s philosophy; be like the water. Adapt yourself to whatever environment you find yourself.

I think this is something we can all live by!

When Charity Stewart Robinson decided to take her family to the rodeo, she couldn’t have imagined what was about to unfold. As the family watched the entertainment, Charity’s son, Lincoln, who suffers from a challenging disability, approached a stranger in a cowboy hat. The man talked to Lincoln and played with him. Touched by the stranger’s act of kindness, Charity took to Facebook to praise him.

Charity wrote:

“Dear stranger next to us at the rodeo,
When my son came up to you and grabbed your arm, you didn’t know he used to be terrified of people. When he talked to you about the bulls, you didn’t know he was diagnosed with a language disorder. When he jumped in your lap and laughed as you tickled him, you didn’t know he had a sensory processing disorder. You also didn’t know as his mother, I sat in my seat, with tears running down my face, sneaking this photo. When we adopted him a few short months ago, we didn’t know how long it would take for him to laugh, play and engage others like this. You didn’t know any of this, but you took time to connect with a child who has had to fight to learn to connect. My heart is full. Thank you.

The story didn’t end there. In an interview with IJReview, Charity said that several people had posted on her Facebook wall to tell her that the stranger was, in fact, a preacher at a nearby church.

“Through the post we were able to reconnect with that stranger and attended his sweet church this morning and hear his preaching and he actually shared the story about meeting Linc and had him up on stage with him!”

Charity commented further:

“Y’all also might be happy to know he has been identified and someone has shared the post with his daughter so he can see it. He is the pastor of the Bar None Cowboy Church in Henderson, Jason Taylor. My family is getting up to head to visit his church this morning. Amazing how the Lord works!”

“Yesterday he was a stranger and today he is a friend we sat next to in church. When we went to bed I had no idea when I woke up this post would be shared by so many. I also had no idea God’s plan for us was to drive 45 minutes to his church to be blessed by Jason, his message and his sweet congregation. So lucky that God made sure our paths crossed last night.”

Following the touching story, Charity had this to say:

“The thing that has touched me so much is the outpouring of love and support from all over the country! We are humbled that God is using our story to touch others!”

This Man Caught Women Bathing In His Pond. His Response Is Brilliant!

Swimming

An elderly man down in Alabama had owned a big ol’ farm ever since he could remember. It was passed down to him when his daddy died.

He had a great big pond out back. It was huge and nicely shaped for swimming in. In fact, he used to take dips himself as a younger man. He’d fixed it up real nice, with nice new picnic tables and some beautiful apple and peach trees all about.

One night the farmer decided he’d head over to the pond to check on it and maybe paddle his feet some. As he left, he grabbed a big ol’ five gallon bucket so he could grab some ripened fruit on his return.

As he approached the pond, though – something was different. He could hear something. The sound of splashing and laughter. There was a group of young women skinny dipping in his pond!

Skinny DippingHe politely cleared his throat to alert the naked ladies as to his presence and averted his gaze.

Shocked, one of the women shouted to him, ‘Pervert! Don’t stare at us! You know, we’re not coming out of here until you leave!’

The old man shrugged and without batting an eyelid said to the girls, ‘I didn’t come down here to spy on you ladies swimming naked or even make you get out of my pond naked, y’know…’

He held up his bucket and rattled it…

‘I’m here to feed the alligator.’

Some old timers can still think fast!
