GUY WALKS ACROSS AMERICA

This new ad for Levi's makes it look like he has walked across America. It took 2800 photos to make
this video. He made it all the way across the country before Jimmy Wayne made it to Arizona!
 

THE WHALE & THE BOAT

The ‘Whale Hits Boat’ photo is sweeping across the web today. A photographer managed to capture the moment when a whale seemingly jumps and lands on a boat. Get the story here.

It was an ordinary day for husband and wife sailing instructors Ralph Mothes and Paloma Werner. They had taken their yacht out into the waters off of the coast of Cape Town, South Africa when all of a sudden it happened.

A 40-ton Southern Right Whale breached the surface just off of the port side of the boat. The normally awe-inspiring sight would have been pleasant—but unfortunately before the whale could splash back down into the water, it practically landed on top of the sailing vessel.

The image of the nearly vertical whale dwarfing the sailboat is among the most viewed photos on the web today. The Whale hits boat photo can be found below. It’s no Photoshop trick either. Mothes appeared on The Today Show this morning, and here is what he had to say about the incident:

“Suddenly I saw this huge monster shape come up out of the water on my port side…It just happened in an instant. It was quite frightening.”

Luckily no one was hurt, but the boat seemed to buckle under the immense weight of the animal. PEOPLE reports that the mast was snapped like a wooden matchstick, and part of the cabin was damaged.

As for the whale, it did leave behind some barnacles and blubber, but the absence of blood leaves observers hopeful that it didn’t suffer any serious injuries.

GREAT GUY JOSH TURNER


Josh Turner helped make a dying girl's wish come true, although not the way the notoriously kind country singer had hoped.

Partnering with the Make-a-Wish foundation, Josh had already agreed to meet with 10-year old cancer patient, Elizabeth Pitts, whose last wish was to meet him. Unfortunately, the country star received the news on June 30 that Elizabeth was not expected to live until their scheduled July 17 date, when Josh planned to spend time with her while in her hometown of Valdosta, Ga. as part of his concert tour. Not willing to let the little girl pass away without granting at least part of her wish, Josh called Elizabeth and sang and spoke to her, only moments before she died on July 1, after a courageous four-year battle.

"Elizabeth went to Heaven today after having Josh Turner call and sing to her her just after noon," her mother wrote on her CaringBridge blog. The family plans to attend Josh's July 17 concert in Elizabeth's honor.

"She loved music, especially Josh Turner, the color pink, and Tinkerbell. Most of all Elizabeth loved serving others," her obituary reads. Elizabeth's family has requested donations to the Jay's Hope, The Victoria LeeAnne Newsome Foundation and the Ronald McDonald House in memory of their daughter.
