He Went Missing 13 Years Ago, But His Family Thinks He’s Still Alive In North Korea

He Went Missing 13 Years Ago, But His Family Thinks He’s Still Alive In North Korea

Blog
In 2004, Brigham Young University student David Sneddon was visiting China when he disappeared. He hasn't been seen since. The 24-year-old was last seen hiking through Tiger Leaping Gorge in the country's Yunnan Province. Since then, he's been presumed dead by Chinese officials, who say he likely fell or drowned, but his family doesn't buy that explanation because his body was never recovered. What they believe really happened to him is much stranger, especially considering that they're convinced he's still alive. Before he went missing, Sneddon served a mission in South Korea for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Facebook / Bringing David Louis Sneddon Home ...

Being a refugee isn't easy -- and it's an experience most of us can't even begin to relate to. Even if you can make it safely to your destination, there are so many challenges to face in your new life. Often, the journey to your destination can be fraught with roadblocks, disappointment, and suffering. With the ongoing wars in Syria and Iraq, countless families attempting to flee to brighter and safer futures get stuck in foreign European countries due to complicated bureaucratic hurdles. Sometimes, governments work out the kinks in a reasonable amount of time. However, it's common for refugees get stuck in limbo with no end in sight.

7 Surprising Reasons Why You Should Stop Chewing Gum ASAP

7 Surprising Reasons Why You Should Stop Chewing Gum ASAP

Blog
No matter how many times I’ve tried, I’ve never been able to blow a bubble with my chewing gum. Although I've never been able to experience such a simple joy, that isn’t to say that I'm not a bubble gum enthusiast. I was that kid growing up that would shove half a pack of gum in my mouth at a time because I thought more gum meant more flavor. I always kept at least one pack in my pocket at all times. But just like everything else from my childhood, chewing gum is forever ruined for me. We all know that if you swallow your gum, you never actually digest it, but there are plenty of other ways chewing it can be harmful to your health... 1.

Checking daily horoscopes is a fun and interesting pastime for lots of people, but not many take them very seriously. I've never really believed that my birth month has any influence over my life either, but according to a new study published in the Medicina Clínica journal, chronic diseases that we develop as adults may have something to do with the months in which we're born.Studying just under 29,500 individuals representing the Spanish population, researchers set out to determine whether there were any links between birth months and 27 common chronic diseases -- and they definitely found some. “In this study we have evidenced a significant association between the month of birth and the occurrence of various chronic diseases ...

Listening To The BTK Killer Describe His Murderous Fantasies Is Pure Nightmare Fuel

Blog
For nearly two decades, Wichita, Kansas, was plagued by a killer who left a bizarre calling card in the treatment of his victims. Between 1974 and 1991, ten people were bound and tortured before eventually being killed, hence the killer's nickname, the "BTK killer."Dennis Rader was arrested in 2005 and openly admitted he was behind the BTK killings. After his arrest, NBC's Dateline gained access to an exclusive interview with Rader by Harvard-trained forensic psychologist Robert Mendoza. During their discussion, Rader explained his obsession with killing and his inability to control his actions once his mind had fixated on a victim. Despite pleading guilty to the charges, Rader shies away from blaming himself for the killings, instead choosing to point the finger at potential demons...

10 Photos That Prove The Praying Mantis Is The Most Badass Insect On Earth

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('VN_PG_DTAT_ATF'); }); When it comes to the animal kingdom, the undisputed champion is the sloth (in my personal opinion, anyway). But what about when it comes to insects more specifically? I would like to nominate the praying mantis for the title of "Most Badass Bug."They might not seem like much at first glance, but they're scrappy and they fight creatures much bigger and stronger than they are (and often win). Just have a look at some of these photos and videos. I think they'll make you understand my logic. When a praying mantis sets its sights on you, you don't stand a chance...especially if they catch you off guard, like this poor lizard. Reddit /...

Rats aren't really what I think of when I think of food. Rats are disgusting! There is, of course, pizza rat, but I'm talking about eating the rats themselves. In Moscow restaurant Krasnodar Bistro, river rats have become the new delicacy. In addition to river rat burgers, they are also serving river rat hot dogs, dumplings, and river rat wrapped in cabbage leaves. So what is a river rat? It's actually a huge rodent called the coypu. Wikipedia They were originally only found in South America, meaning that their presence in Europe and Asia is invasive. Coypu, also called nutria, are considered pests. Restaurant owner and chef Takhir Kholikberdiev told The Guardian that people who are skeeved ...
