A security guard in Georgia recently let down his guard for a few minutes, and he’s now become somewhat of a viral sensation.

A visitor to the National Library of Parliament recorded Omar Tsereteli as he was playing the piano, and it turns out he’s really amazing.

Time for a career change?

According to the caption, he didn’t know he was being filmed, and the YouTube clip now has over 1 million views.

The seats in the room may be empty, but the world is listening Omar!

He’s performing Ludovico Einaudi’s “Giorni Dispari,” according to the UK’s Metro.

Anti-vaxxers just got schooled by a little red muppet.

Surgeon General Vivek Murthy, Sesame Street and The Daily Dot have teamed up in a new PSA about why vaccinations are so important.

In the 3-minute clip, Murthy explains to Elmo, who initially isn’t so keen on getting a shot, why he needs one if he wants to stay healthy. He compares it to wearing a bicycle helmet or carrying an umbrella when it rains.

Murthy talked more about the collaboration on the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services blog:

Vaccines are among the most successful and cost-effective public health tools we have for preventing disease and death. They not only help protect vaccinated individuals, but they also help protect entire communities by preventing and reducing the spread of infectious diseases. Among children in the U.S. born between 1994 and 2013, routine vaccinations will prevent an estimated 322 million illnesses, 21 million hospitalizations, and 732,000 deaths over the course of their lifetimes.

And they both took a little dig at the anti-vaxxer movement at the end of the video.

“That was so easy. Why doesn’t everybody get a vaccination,” he says.

“That’s a good question Elmo,” Murthy replies.

A 23-year-old woman in Sydney, Australia has won over the world after standing up to a hateful train passenger who was accusing a Muslim woman of being part of ISIS.

Stacey Eden overheard the passenger harassing her for about 10 minutes before deciding to intervene and film their conversation.

At one point the lady mocks the Muslim woman for wearing a hijab.

“Why do you wear it for a man that marries a six year-old girl?” she asks.

“She wears it for herself, ok?” Eden replies. “She wears it because she wants to be modest with her body.”

The Islamaphobic woman then brings up recent terror attacks and beheadings, to which Eden says “that’s not her doing it. That’s a minority of people.”

She posted the video of the confrontation to her Facebook page on Wednesday encouraging everyone to love on another regardless of religion.

“People like this make me sick,” she wrote in a Facebook post with the video. “People who are so ignorant and disrespectful to other people who were clearly sitting there minding their own business. ”

She’s received lots of support from people online about the incident, including the Muslim woman’s husband Hafeez Ahmed Bhatti who posted the video to his own page thanking her.

“God bless Stacey Eden,” he wrote.

Have you seen this man, woman or man? Perhaps in a mirror?

Harry English, Niamh Geaney and Terence Manzanga have challenged each other to find someone who looks just like them, and they only have one month to do it.

The three friends from Ireland are using social media to crowdsource the new project which they are calling “Twin Strangers.”

“They say there are 7 people in the world who look exactly like you,” they write on their website. “We want to find OUR Twin Strangers.”

They’re asking people online to submit photos of anyone they think resembles one of them through their website, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter accounts.

They were initially inspired by a journalist named Sophie Robehmed who successfully found her own twin back in 2011.

The search kicked off on March 30, and they’ve been documenting all of their progress up until this point on their blog.

With only two weeks left, Niamh met up with one of her potential twins in real life, and she is pretty much a dead ringer.

You can watch their encounter below, and submit your own photo if you think you look like one of them.

Good thing these bird aren’t the Alfred Hitchcock type.

A guy in Texas came home after running some errands to find a huge flock of birds had infiltrated his home. He captured the chaos in two separate videos (part 1 is above and part 2 is embedded below).

“There are birds everywhere,” he says. “This is fucked up.”

There were upwards of 25 of the animals fluttering around, which he assumes were swallows.

He described the bizarre incident in a post on Reddit:

I opened the front door and heard what sounded like wings… I kind of flipped sh*t. Long story short We got them all out safely. There was a lot of cleanup involved, but all of the birds are fine. We think they got in through the chimney since last summer we thought we could hear birds chirping.

So it’s probably not an evil curse or omen, but he if he comes home to find plague of locusts in the next few days, it might be time to call a priest.

Wu-Tang Clan is a relationship “killah.”

On a recent episode of “Divorce Court” with Lynn Toler, a man named Nathan Sellers accuses his girlfriend Lia Palmquist of having sex with the entire hip hop group.

She admits that she went back stage at a show one night, got on their tour bus and later hung out with the group at their hotel (until 7am!), but she didn’t sleep with any of them.

“We were not doing anything but talking,” she says, defending herself. “We talked a lot about politics.”

But Nathan doesn’t believe that for a second.

“She gave Wu some Tang,” he says.

You still can’t actually dislike someone’s post on Facebook, but now you can use the social network to end your marriage.

A New York Supreme Court justice has ruled that a woman named Ellanora Baidoo can legally serve her husband a divorce summons through Facebook messenger.

She legally married Victor Sena Blood-Dzraku back in 2009, but because he wouldn’t go through with a traditional Ghanaian wedding ceremony, she now wants out of the relationship. They separated, and the only way she has been able to contact him is on the phone or through Facebook, so there has been no way to get him the required paperwork.

Until now. Her lawyer will be messaging him once a week for three weeks, or until he finally responds.

A 2013 study suggested that excessive Facebook usage is likely to cause relationship problems in the first place, which could lead to a breakup or divorce.

So it’s all now just an endless cycle of drama and heartbreak online.

And until your soon-to-be ex responds, it’s probably best to change your status to “It’s Complicated.”
