  • Halloween Trees Are A Thing Now… And They’re Delightfully Hideous.


    Christmas already uses a tree to celebrate the holidays. So why can't Halloween have a tree too? It's not such a far-fetched idea. Is it? Author Ray Bradbury wrote a novel in 1972 called "The Halloween Tree", which traced the history of Halloween and Samhain. Besides, if Santa brings presents under the Christmas Tree, what will people put under your Halloween tree? Hopefully it's something really cool like candy and not something icky and nasty like spiders, slimy eyeballs and hearts, cause that would be just a little too "Scream Queen" for anyone's taste.

    You no longer have to choose between Halloween or Christmas.

    Both holidays are super fun and best of all, now you can take out your Christmas tree out a little early and turn it into a Halloween tree.

    Add a bunch of Halloween-themed ornaments and prepare to celebrate.

    Nothing celebrates the thinning of the veil between the world of the living and the dead more than pumpkin ornaments, maybe a black or purple Garland, and oh yes, a Chucky doll.

    Who needs a north star when you have this creepy fellow humping the top of your tree.

    It’s bound to make someone pee their pants on their way to the bathroom and they see this skeleton waving hi from the living room.

    Halloween Trees can be the ultimate "Nightmare Before Christmas."

    Halloween has taken a back burner to Thanksgiving, Christmas, and in this year’s case, the presidential election. But no more! It’s time to Tim Burton this holiday up.

    You don't have to go cray-cray with the decorations. Pumpkins and Jack-O-Lanterns make some mighty fine ornaments too.

    It may not be the “Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown” but it’s the next best thing.

    It's time to witch things up a bit before the 31st of October is upon us.

    Leave those tinsels in their boxes and those candy canes in the fridge. What you need are skull shaped ornaments, cobwebs and fake spiders.

    Halloween Trees can bring out the kid in you and you'll love them.

    You might even want to make love to it!

    Ghosts, pumpkins and other spooky stuff will work like a charm on your tree.

    You could even get creative and do some Halloween arts and crafts to fill your tree up.

    There's no right or wrong way to decorate a Halloween tree.

    The whole fun of decorating one involves turning a pine tree or a plastic substitute into something your ghoul family can totally enjoy.

    Don't be afraid to show your Halloween spirit.

    Display that tree near your window so all your neighbors can see that you’ve got the Halloween spirit up in your head, deep in your heart, and down to your knees.

    If your tree still looks a little too Christmasy then make it a black Christmas with these.

    You’ll find it impossible to get a bunch of black cats to pose like a pyramid until Halloween ends. But if you want to bump up the creep factor, turn a bunch of life-like plush cats into a Halloween tree. Fair warning, you might feel like you’re being watched this season.

    Tis the season to be scary… with this tree of nightmares.

    Until Halloween ornaments become a thing, you need to get crafty. It’s the ultimate project for any Halloween addict and it’s scary fun.

  • Meet The World’s Prettiest Dog, And Prepare For A Dose Of Hair Envy.


    One look at Tea the Afghan Hound and you'll know it's true: not all dogs were created equal. Distinguished by her silky locks, longer and better kept than most of us, this pup has been called photogenic, a true star, and even the world's prettiest dog. We'd like to think of her as Fabio's canine daughter.

    And she's got more than just looks, she's also an award-winning show dog. Now that she's retired from competing in shows, she's found work as an actress. You can find her in ads for Harriot and Hounds' dog perfume and Royal Canine dog food.

    Her human Luke Kavanagh of the Oyster Bay area in New South Wales, Australia, was quoted in the daily saying, "We always thought that she was far too pretty to keep at home. Even our weekend walks draw a crowd. She pretends she does not need the attention, but she definitely loves it, just like any supermodel."

    Take a look at more photos of Tea, the five-year-old spokesdog, below.

    Meet Tea, the Afghan Hound whose looks will stop you in your tracks.

    Kavanagh, who has a special bond with Tea, posted this photo of her on Facebook and it has since made its rounds. Although she was already well loved among dog show fans, she now has thousands of new fans across the world.

    She's an award-winning show dog. Check out of her honors below as listed on her human's Facebook.

    This gorgeous pup is now retired from her show career.

    “Her retirement is due to no other reason than I reached a point where showing (grooming & show day) was taking me away from spending time with my family & I want to prioritise them over campaigning my dog,” Kavanagh explained in a Facebook post.

    According to updates, she's been really loving retirement. Kavanagh says that she reminds the family of Kramer from Seinfeld.

    “At home she is such a character & really loving her retirement… she actually reminds us of Kramer from Seinfeld, especially when she runs inside haha.”

    The American Kennel Club (AKC) describes Afghan Hounds as independent, silly, and sweet.

    Moreover, they are a “breed of charming contradictions: independent and aloof, but sweet and profoundly loyal.” We can’t wait to see more of this elegant girl.

  • 25 Creepy Kid’s Drawings That Are Seriously Disturbing.


    Kids come off so pure and innocent but sometimes that's not the case. Our imagination runs the most wild when we're young. Give a kid a piece of paper and some crayons and you'll never know what the outcome will be.

    You're lucky if all you see is a drawing of a rainbow and/or stick figures with happy faces. Unfortunately, other times you might see something more on the disturbing side like a greeting card of someone getting cut up at night. Like we said, kid's drawings can be unpredictable.

    Check out some of the creepiest drawings below.

    #1. Didn't know 10-year-olds knew so much information about celebrities.

    And apparently this 10-year-old isn’t amused with certain people.

    #2. Kids can be so enlightening.

    I wonder if he came up with that metaphor all on his own.

    #3. That's a positive way of thinking!

    A great perspective of the future.

    That's a positive way of thinking!

    #4. Not every kid loves their babysitter.

    Sorry Valerie, but it looks like you need to watch your back.

    #5. The Finnish text reads: "He/she Lives Inside Of You. You Surrender To Him/her With Pleasure. He/she Is Satan. But That Is Wrong!"

    Yeah, no big deal or anything.

    #6. This is about around the point you should start getting concerned.

    You’re in denial if you’re not.

    #7. Did the kid just say "this time?"

    Someone order an exorcist asap!

    #8. Kids can be so overdramatic.

    She had one fight with her dad and she left him this.

    Kids can be so overdramatic.

    #9. Well this look like a fun and vibrant drawing.

    Unfortunately, it appears your son doesn’t really like you mom.

    #10. Just a drawing of a girl sacrificing her sister to alien gods.

    Nothing out of the ordinary here.

    #11. Meet this kid's imaginary friends: Long Neck, Big Tooth, and No Face.

    This isn’t the slightest bit creepy at all.

    #12. Yes, mother will be so proud.

    Alright, someone go protect Timy right away!!!!

    Yes, mother will be so proud.

    #13. That's one hectic tower.

    I wonder if this kid watches a lot of movies.

    That's one hectic tower.

    #14. A drawing of a girl and her imaginary friend.

    However, the friend looks a bit alarming.

    #15. A drawing of a woman a boy claimed to have follow him home.

    This is definitely something that should be addressed?

    A drawing of a woman a boy claimed to have follow him home.

    #16. A drawing of a monster a 4-year-old girl claims to be following her.

    That’s one scary monster…

    #17. Didn't know that kids even knew was cannibalism was…

    It’s probably not good that this kid knows what it is.

    Didn't know that kids even knew was cannibalism was...

    #18. What a beautiful Christmas dream it is.

    I think it’s time to hire a psychologist.

    What a beautiful Christmas dream it is.

    #19. A drawing of a "shadow friend" a 7-year-old girl sees at her mom's house.

    Maybe she should take a break from visiting mom.

    #20. A lovely birthday card a 8-year-old girl presented her parent.

    Don’t know if this is a birthday card or plans for an Imperial Ambush.

    #21. Apparently at night, the grim reaper comes out to play…

    I hope this is just a figment of their imagination.

    #22. When they love you even more when you're dead.

    This could be a problem.

    When they love you even more when you're dead.

    #23. A drawing of what a 10-year-old sees in her village.

    Not things a 10-year-old should see.

    #24. This is just a drawing of a horror film scene right?

    That’s all there is to it, right??

    This is just a drawing of a horror film scene right?

    #25. Be warned.

    That little munchkin’s got their eyes on you.

  • Old Lady Is Hugging A Baby, But Something Is VERY Wrong.


    When you step into the world of London-based sculptor Ron Mueck, you might feel like you've crossed over into the Twilight Zone, and in some ways, you have. The former model maker and puppeteer for TV and movies, has been creating hyperrealistic sculptures for decades. Anyone privileged enough to stand in front of his work of art will feel like they're in "The House Of Wax" or the movie that inspired the series, "Westworld". Using a variety of materials like silicone, fiberglass and resin, Mueck's work captures human likeness to a degree of realism that you have to see to believe.

    To call Mueck's sculptures life-like would be a major understatement.

    From the long creepy stare, to the bushy long beard, to the hair on it’s chest, this work of art needs only to speak.

    Mueck loves playing with the the scale of his sculptures.

    Back in 2006, a visitor at the National Galleries of Scotland stood beside this work which he called “Wild Man”. It’s like she took something from a bottle that said “Drink Me” and shrunk.

    "Wild Man" doesn't mind being gawked at, even by a bunch of schoolgirls.

    In 2010, the clothes-challenged art piece went on display at the National Gallery of Victoria in Melbourne.

    Beauty is in this eye of the beholder, especially when you're looking at a giant sculpture of a newborn baby.

    This man studies the painstaking details of this sculpture called”A Girl” at the National Gallery of Victoria in Melbourne in 2010. Mueck spared no details, even the umbilical cord hanging by its belly button.

    Beauty is in this eye of the beholder, especially when you're looking at a giant sculpture of a newborn baby.

    Ron Mueck

    It's hard not to be mesmerized by this creepy and amazingly awesome art.

    Some spectators even find the work extremely thought provoking.

    Some sculptures are emotive, like this grandma tenderly holding her grandchild in her arms.

    If Mueck were to play it outside on a bench, you probably wouldn’t realize that they’re not really alive.

    "In Bed" is the name of this exhibition piece, and it really says it all.

    It was displayed in 2011 at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Monterrey. It’s so realistic, you almost feel like jumping in the sack with her.

    The "Woman with Sticks" awed this visitor in Paris back in 2013.

    But could his Smartphone capture the intricate details of the dimpling of the flesh and muscular tension of this non-living work of art displayed at the “Fondation Cartier Pour L’Art Contemporain”?

    The strain on the face of the "Woman with Sticks" is surreal.

    Fortunately, visitors in London, England got a chance to see the intricate details up close at the Hauser / Wirth Gallery in 2012.

    Size, in this case, does matter, and it's hard not to imagine this sculpture coming to life.

    The art piece entitled, “Standing Woman” caught the attention of this visitor at the Towada Art Center in Aomori Prefecture in Japan back in 2008. If you stare at her long enough, you might start to think that you saw it moving.

    If you thought your child was a big baby, wait until you meet the "Boy".

    Mueck, finally completed this 5-meter-tall sculpture in 2000. From the posture to the fear in its eyes, It’s so expressive. You almost want to call child protective services.

    No one does faces better than Mueck, particularly this close up of "MaskII".

    It’s so lifelike you can almost hear it breathing. You might also be tempted to pick its nose, but don’t.. just… don’t.

    No one does faces better than Mueck, particularly this close up of "MaskII".

    Thomas Coex/AFP/Getty Images

    Oh… who said art can't be romantic? The "Spooning Couple" will prove you wrong.

    Unlike some of his other art, Mueck made this one small enough that you’d have to lean over to get a closer look. But shhh! Stop it! Keep your shenanigans under control. You don’t want to disturb them as they sleep.

    Oh... who said art can't be romantic? The "Spooning Couple" will prove you wrong.

    Ron Mueck

    Mueck's artwork would make anyone feel like a voyeur.

    It’s okay! You can touch it. The flesh is actually soft. Just don’t expect them to react, breath, or get mad. Although that would be a dream come true!

    Nobody likes a pair of busy bodies gossiping around, unless it involves art.

    In 2007, the sculpture called “Two Women” was on display at the Brooklyn Museum. Better sneak up and see what they’re saying about you.

    There's an unspeakable humanity to Mueck's sculptures.

    From the wrinkles on their faces to the bitter, judgmental expressions, these women seem to be staring the visitors down as if saying, “What are you looking at?”

    Some would say that art imitates life, which makes you wonder if Mueck was really depressed when he made this.

    There’s no doubt that there’s a lot of talent here, especially with the way he sculpts the body language and facial expressions. But the way he captures raw emotions makes us wonder if he’s portraying the very same emotions he once went through himself.

    There's certainly no lack of detail on any of his work.

    Whether he’s trying to show sadness and tension or giving off the illusion of sweat popping out of a sculpture’s skin, Mueck is the man!

    It's almost a pity that these art pieces probably won't survive the test of time, like a DaVinci.

    But if he ever chose to recreate these in marble, they’d probably become timeless classics. Fortunately, photos and videos will allow Mueck’s work to remain preserved, hopefully for years to come.

    It's absolutely outstanding how some paint, resin, and fiberglass can make these sculptures so lifelike.

    It’s clear that Mueck didn’t just add talent to these, because a lot of love is reflected in many of his pieces.

    Mueck has managed to portray art in different ways.

    While some reflect the simplicity and complexity of our bodies, other sculptures reflect that various stages of emotion and of our life cycles.

    It's virtually impossible to reflect the bond between a mother and child through sculpture, but Mueck doesn't believe in impossible.

    In 2013, Mueck’s one of a kind and amazing sculpture, “Woman with shopping” was displayed at the “Fondation Cartier Pour L’Art Contemporain” in Paris.

    It's virtually impossible to reflect the bond between a mother and child through sculpture, but Mueck doesn't believe in impossible.

  • 16 Halloween Traditions From Around The World That Are Just TOO Creepy.


    Fans of Halloween enjoy the secular holiday for a number of reasons. Many people, young and old, look forward to the opportunity to dress up in store-bought or handmade costumes and view it as an exciting way to share their creativity, fandom, or imagination.

    Others are in it for the sweets. According to a survey conducted by the website Influenster, the most popular Halloween candy is candy corn. Americans also love Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, Kit Kats and Butterfingers. The National Retail Foundation predicts that Halloween spending on candy, costumes, and decorations will reach $8.4 billion this year, with each person spending an average of $82.93.

    And then there are those who love all things spooky: ghost stories, horror films, pranks, and gore.

    Whatever your reason is, you'll be delighted that there's more to Halloween than costumes, candy, and all things creepy. Below we've included some Halloween traditions, past and present, as well as some All-hallowtide customs from around the world. For example, All Saints' Day is observed on November 1 followed by All Souls' Day on November 2. Read about them now and try out something new this year.

    #1. Fave dei Morti ("Beans of the Dead")

    Fave dei Morti are bean-shaped almond cookies with cinnamon and rum or other flavorings that are to be enjoyed on All Souls’ Day. Who knew the departed had such good taste?

    According to legend, these cookies are given to well-behaved children by spirits. Around this time, there are also a variety of candied goods, some brightly colored and shaped like dolls.

    #2. Hungry Ghost Festival

    The Hungry Ghost Festival, also Yu Lan Jie or Zhong Yuan Jie, is a Buddhist and Taoist celebration held on the 15th night of the seventh Chinese month across Asia.

    Spirits of deceased ancestors are believed to visit living family members and receive offerings. Pictured here is a participant throwing some make-believe money, which will later be burned alongside other effigies to please wandering spirits.

    #3. Yu Lan (Hong Kong)

    Hong Kong Chinese celebrate have their own Festival of Hungry Ghosts. It is arguably different because HK was able to preserve some of the festival’s early traditions, something that proved to be difficult in the mainland due to the Cultural Revolution. Burning items such as fruit, money, and photographs is expected to appease the spirits.

    #4. Trick-or-Treating for UNICEF

    Two years ago, Zendaya served as the Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF spokesperson. Children have collected change for other kids in need for over 60 years.

    “Kids need more than candy,” the Disney star stated. “They need basics like medicine, nutrition and clean drinking water, and millions of them wouldn’t have these things without UNICEF.”

    #5. Devil's Night

    As we’ve witnessed with creepy killer clown sightings, pranks are quite popular on Hallow’s Eve. In Detroit, pranksters in the 1970s through the 90s would take it to another level by painting the town with vandalism and arson in what was later called Devil’s Night or Mischief Night. These practices have since declined thanks to city officials promoting “Angels’ Night.”

    #6. Obon (Japan)

    In Japan locals observe the Buddhist custom of Obon, or simply Bon, which is centered on honoring the spirits of their ancestors. The visitation period is in mid August. To prepare, families hang lanterns to illuminate the way, attend festivals, visit graves, and make offerings at altars in their homes and at temples.

    #7. Tricks-for-Treats

    Some sources say that in the 19th century, children in the UK dressed up and went around asking for fruit and money. In exchange, they would provide entertainment such as delivering jokes, singing, playing music, or reciting a poem. So instead of the popular phrase “trick-or-treat,” they practiced a “tricks-for-treats.” This tradition was also popular in the Midwest.



    #8. Carved Turnips

    In the British Isles, it was common to carve turnips on Halloween long before they turned to pumpkins. Beets were also used in certain locations. For some reason, these carved turnips at Dover Castle look more ghoulish than today’s Jack-o-Lanterns.

    #9. Dušičky (Czech Republic)

    Czechs called All Souls’ Day “Dušičky.” On this day, they head to the graveyards and reflect on loved ones they’ve lost despite in classic fall weather. They decorate the graves with flowers, wreaths, and candles. Unlike Halloween in America, it’s a quiet and peaceful time.

    #10. Bread and Water (Austria)

    It is a tradition for Austrians to leave some bread and water for the departed during All Saints Week. They also leave the light on to welcome the spirits.

    #11. Pchum Ben (Cambodia)

    Pchum Ben is a 15-day festival in Cambodia (the final day is officially known as Pchum Ben Day). Similar to the Chinese Hungry Ghost Festival, Pchum Ben is the second most important one in this Southeast Asian nation. Pchum means “gathering” while ben means “ball,” usually of rice or meat.

    One might visit the pagoda bringing food such as rice balls called Bay Ben and other offerings for their ancestors. There’s usually a ceremony performed by monks. When the spirits find these offerings, the living relatives are believed to be blessed.

    #12. True Love in a Mirror

    One long lost Halloween tradition is gazing into a mirror at midnight in order to see your true love. There are quite a few versions. For example, one says you must slice an apple in nine pieces then eat it before a mirror. In order for it to work, you should hold each slice at the point of the knife before eating it.

    There are also versions stipulating that you should hold a candle or comb your hair while enjoying the fruit. There’s even one where you are required to go down the stairs backwards. In all versions, your future spouse should appear in the mirror, just over your shoulder

    #13. Hide the Knife

    In addition to visiting graves to pay respects on All Saints’ Day, Germans also hide their knives. This is to avoid accidentally causing harm to to any spirits.

    #14. Peeling Apples

    If the mirror trick didn’t work out as planned, try peeling an apple like young single women would do long ago. The idea was that if you peeled an apple in a single strand and toss the peel over your shoulder, it would appear in the shape of a letter that would reveal the initial of your future spouse.

    #15. Barmbrack (Ireland)

    On holidays it is customary for the Irish to enjoy Barmbrack, a sweet loaf speckled with dry fruit called. Many point the origin of Halloween to Celtic Ireland, and there’s a fortune telling tradition for Barmbrack around this time of year. This is because the druids, or Celtic priests, were believed to be able to predict the future.

    In the cake, you can find a number of hidden items, including peas (meaning you wouldn’t marry that year), a piece of cloth (hints at poverty), and a ring (you’ll be wed that year).

    #16. Día de los Muertos (Mexico)

    Día de los Muertos , or the Day of the Dead, originated in Mexico but is celebrated throughout Latin America. Some compare the makeup and dress to Halloween but you’ll notice a striking difference in the liveliness of this celebration. The holiday is held under the belief that mourning and sadness would insult those who have passed away, which is why partying is strongly encouraged.

    All bad days aside, you must admit some of the moments you share with your baby are the ones you'll remember forever. And the best ones out of those ones are the funny ones.

  • 6 Qualities That Men Find Attractive In Women (According To Science).


    Since the beginning of time men and women have been looking for the perfect formula to be attractive to the opposite sex. After all, nobody wants to be a complete turn off when they meet the person of their dreams right?

    Over the last several years there have been several scientific studies done about what each sex subconsciously looks for in the other. Reputable places like DePaul University, University College in London, University of British Columbia and Bangor University are a few that have conducted such studies. What they have found are results pretty similar to what the others found. Today we will look into the top six ways that a woman can make herself more attractive to a man. Some of them they don’t have control over though so they can’t be changed.

    You may buy into these studies and you may not. Just because they are officially called a scientific study doesn’t mean they are 100% fool proof and the way that most of society thinks. Each individual has their own set of likes and dislikes. Also, keep in mind that a lot of these studies only use a few thousand people, if that many, so take the results for what you will. Maybe they will help some women out there and maybe they won’t. Some women may be perfect just the way they are and not need to change anything at all.

    #1. Studies show that men prefer a nice hip to butt ratio.

    Studies have found that men subconsciously prefer a hip to butt ratio of 7:10. It signifies that they are a woman that is built for having children. Kim Kardashian is a good example of what these studies say that men prefer.

    #2. Some studies say that men prefer a higher pitched voice.

    The studies reveal that men are attracted to a higher pitched voice rather than a deep husky one. It signifies youth and a slim body. This one is a little baffling because a person’s voice really has nothing to do with their age or appearance. I suppose it can signify that but it doesn’t make it so.

    #3. Who doesn't like good hair?

    When men were drilled on what kind of hair they prefer, long hair won out every time. The studies say they find it more sexy than short hair.

    #4. Flash those pearly whites!

    The scientific studies said that the results show that men prefer women with a nice smile. So keep that smile on your face ladies if you want to get that man you are chasing down!

    #5. The natural look is better.

    The results also showed that men prefer the natural look over the clown look. Too much make up can be a major turn off because it’s not a true representation of yourself. Some is okay as long as it looks natural. But when a woman crosses over into the “caked on” zone they won’t see positive results.

    #6. Red is an attractive color.

    The studies showed that red is an attractive color to both men and women, as well as animals. You have probably heard that old wives tale about red colored cars get more tickets? That’s because red is a color that stands out and catches the eye. For both cars and people. Oh and animals too!

    I’m not really sure how many animals get dressed up for the day but the studies showed it was more attractive to them as well.

  • Cat Abandoned For Being ‘Too Ugly’ Finally Finds His Soulmate.


    Every abandoned pet deserves the opportunity to be loved and cared for. When a person is looking into adding a new pet to their family and/or household, the first step should always be to visit an animal shelter. The second step, however, is to keep an open mind and heart.

    Romeo, for example, is a ginger kitten who has been overlooked countless times. Nobody ever gave him a chance because he appeared "too ugly." Until now, that is.

    The kind members of Santuario Compasión Animal in Spain were the first ones to finally give this kitten a chance to be loved. And guess what? He's just as playful, affectionate, and adorable as any other cat.

    Meet Romeo. He was born with a deformity that makes him look different from other cats.

    Although he may look different, that doesn't make him any less of a cat who deserves people who love and care for him.

    “They told us that no one wanted him because he was ugly. But for us Romeo is not ugly, he’s a lovely little kitten who likes to play like the rest of the cats. And their differences make them special,” a Santuario Compasión Animal spokesperson told The Dodo.

  • Boy’s Chocolate Pudding Tantrum Reveals How Uncomfortable OCD Treatment Can Be


    They say you shouldn’t judge a person until you walk a milk in their shoes. But many are rushing to conclusions about one mom’s parenting tactics. Andrea Lunsford’s son Rafael has obsessive compulsive disorder and high functioning autism.

    Recently, she filmed one of her son’s episodes and demonstrated how she deals with them. While many think her reaction to his emotional response is cruel, she argues that it’s a form of treatment. According to the Daily Mail, “she first came across exposure therapy, the method of treatment she uses in the video, while watching British television show ‘Obsessive Compulsive Cleaners.'”

    She commented, “We are choosing exposure therapy to make him face his fears and expose him to things that would cause him anxiety, so he can overcome it and realize it will not control his life if things are not perfect.”

    Andrea appears to laugh and consistently pokes holes in Rafael’s logic concerning his pudding wrapper. After considerable back and forth, Rafael does something amazing.

    Reaction to the video has been mixed. Some say her method creates distrust and dismisses his mental illness as something he can be talked out of.

    YouTube commenter Mc Kenna wrote, “I work with kids like this. You are constantly working towards goals. Sure there are and will be bumps in their road ahead. But egging on the issues when he is showing success is just cruel.”

    Others say her method is successful and that exposure therapy is legitimate for treating OCD, as evidenced by the fact that Rafael does eat the pudding.

    Another commenter, Larissa Gaines, revealed she also has Asperger’s and obsessive compulsive personality disorder. She writes, “She is trying to show him that he doesn’t need to obsess over it, and it’s possible for him to move on from the problem (the wrapper).”

    It’s important to remember that mental illness is never straightforward, and treatments that work for one person may not work for another. Here’s hoping Rafael’s doctors and his family have found treatment that works for him.

    What do you think? Cruel or logical? Let us know!

  • People With Terminal Diagnoses Speak Out About What’s Truly Important


    Getting a diagnosis of terminal illness is, as you can imagine, incredibly scary. It can also really shift people’s priorities.

    This is the premise of a new Australian advertisement by UBank, which encourages people to care less about owning fancy houses and cars and more about living well and valuing their relationships. Their advice can resonate with anyone, even those who do not share their experience of terminal illness.

    Six Australians shared their stories of being diagnosed with terminal illnesses and how that changed the way they view the world around them.

    Karen, who has been living with cancer, told the Daily Mail, “I think if I was younger I wouldn’t go for the big bricks and mortar. I’d enjoy life. I’d go and smell the roses again. I’d take a trip overseas and go and see Australia…have fun with the kids.”

    Ken, also diagnosed with cancer, asks, “Why would you live your life any other way than one in which you enjoy it? The more you’ve got the more you want. It’s almost a cliche. Those who have nothing are the happiest because they don’t know what they haven’t got.”

    He continues, “Since I’m in this new situation it just makes it even more clear: Do it now. If the thought occurs to you, seize that thought and apply it then.”

    Nicole’s advice is, “Don’t worry about anybody else’s perception of what is right. Just think about what you want to do and really feel confident with what you want to do. And have the guts to do it because anything is possible.”
