This is kind of awesome. Redditor Calycae says that two pros bet their very professional careers on the firmly held, and shared belief that 17-year-old Geguri is a plain old cheater in Overwatch. Blizzard reportedly confirmed that Geguri wasn't cheating, and now those two dudes are fresh out of the game..

They just couldn't believe that she's really this good. The young lady's stats are truly astounding. She boasts an 80% win rate, and a KDA of 6.31. 

Korean site, Inven, says that much of the suspicion players hold stems from Geguri's ridiculous accuracy. You can watch her in action, in the clip below:

On May 19, baby Zyla strapped into a set of skies (bolted together for saftety) and water-skied for over 600 feet. Her parents, both being professional barefoot water skiers and co-owners of the World Barefoot Center in Florida, were possibly the only two parents in the world who could make this sound like a good idea.

Take a look at their Christmas card this year for an idea of this family's passion for the water.

"Every year we do a Christmas card skiing, this year wasn't going to be any different;)"

Quincy Jones was on the Ellen show previously talking about the Kickstarter to fund his comedy special. At the time she presented him with a $10,000 check and simply mentioned that some distributor should pick it up when his special has been recorded. 



Clearly, Ellen has done more than that. Jones plans to tape the special at Teragram Ballroom in Los Angeles April 4 and it looks like fans can watch it on HBO when it gets released.

John Boyega went to visit a small Star Wars fan at the Royal London Hospital.  As he explains in the image description he shared on Instagram, Boyega stayed in character the whole time: 

This little stormtrooper Daniel had a wonderful wish after seeing the force awakens. Daniel currently lives with a brain tumour and rather than having Finn to himself he wanted Finn to meet the kids at the Royal London hospital and give them some toys. I stayed in character while I was with this brave boy asking him what a car was. He taught Finn about everything earth related! Really thankful for the opportunity this child granted me and I'm just humbled! I hope I played a little part in making you smile young stormtrooper.

He even found a Rey to hold his hand during the trip:

Nicole Sedgebeer found herself stranded in London after missing the last train home. She didn't know what to do (besides burst into tears) until a homeless man named Mark helped her out. 

She explains on her Facebook post that she never expected someone like Mark to come to her aide:

I hope this story makes people look twice when they see a homeless person. Last night I missed my last train home and when I finally got to Euston to wait till the morning, the station was locked. Just as I was about to burst into drunken tears I met my homeless friend Mark. He said he would take me to a cafe that was open as it was too dangerous to walk by myself. He left me after a coffee and a chat and explained that he had to go get his sleeping bag but he would be back at 5 to walk me back to the station. (Me being a typical bitch didn't believe he would come back) It got past 5 and he was a no show. As I got round the corner my homeless friend Mark was running down the street towards me. Not only did he turn up but he had to get a bus to come get me. This man who I probably would of avoided eye contact with if he asked for spare change, completely changed such a negative event into the most eye opening event in my life. Mark you are one special man, I will never look down on a homeless person again This was also his first ever selfie!

This adorable kid was such a fan of Argentine soccer player, Lionel Messi, that he made his own jersey out of a trash bag and marker. An image of him went viral as people spread the word to help him get his own actual Messi jersey. 



Thanks to the Afghanistan Football Federation and UNICEF, he finally got a real jersey, signed by Messi.

Preschooler Cloe Woods learned what to do in case of fire in a recent fieldtrip. Unfortunately, she had the chance to use that knowledge when her house caught on fire with her and her grandmother in it.  

She made sure her blind grandma had a hold of her shoulder so that she could quickly lead her out of the house. When everyone was safe, including the family dog, she ran to the neighbors and asked them to call 911.

Since the dawn of sliced bread have we not seen such grand ingenious culinary innovation. Yes folks, in large thanks to Brandeis University professor Daniel Perlman, we're about to take a step into a world where you can sustain a legit caffeine buzz (like several cups worth) off a muffin.


During his interview with Eater, Perlman says, "This flour contains 2.5 percent caffeine by weight, so if you were to put 4 grams of this into, say, a breakfast muffin, it would be the equivalent of drinking a cup of coffee."


Hold the phone. Say what now? And yes, it gets better; this flour's derived from green coffee beans, and rich in major health benefits. The roasting process for these green coffee beans helps retain antioxidant chlorogenic acid, which scientists believe can significantly diminish your risk of heart disease and diabetes.


If you're someone who's susceptible to over self-medicating on that java fix, Perlman says not to worry too much. He explains, ""Unlike some bars that are loaded with chemically purified or synthesized caffeine, this is natural food source caffeine. I would expect it to be absorbed a little more gradually than the caffeine in a cup of coffee, so [it would offer] a more sustained release and longer-term stimulation than you get when you drink a cup or two of coffee."


Perlman additionally informed Eater his coffee flour is a "very user-friendly ingredient", meaning it's pleasingly easy to bake with. Put your hands together and give a warm round of applause my fellow novice bakers.
