A baseball fan or not, you've probably heard about San Francisco Giants' World Series parade on Wednesday that had such a high turnout that local school districts saw a noticeable drop in class attendance rate. Well, this photograph taken by Redditor Spattersp shows there was at least one guy who didn't care at all (cue Farmville theme song).
Not a Single Damn of the Day is a feature series that celebrates some of the most carefree people and laid back animals in our everyday lives.
Today's heartwarming post-Hurricane Sandy story comes from Redditor RuffDesperado, whose friendly neighbor is offering free electricity to people who need to charge their phones. In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, New Jersey residents have been facing massive power outage on an unprecedented scale, which may take longer than a week for complete restoration, according to the utility companies.
When photographer Patrick Lu noticed a man proposing to his girlfriend on the capital grounds in Austin, TX, he instinctively snapped a pic to capture the moment.
It turned out so well that the next morning, he threw the image up on Reddit to try and discover the identities of the mystery couple.
Lu's inquiry quickly made it to the top of /r/Austin with 1,400 up votes, but the groom-to-be, Joel Bush, caught wind of the thread through friends.
Bush, shocked, says he and fiancée Jennifer Orr are grateful:
We experienced that magic on its own terms, with no thought about posing or anything. And, because the photographer did such an awesome job, we also have that precise moment and her beautiful reaction captured for safekeeping. It's pretty priceless.
