whose idea was it to end this show
San Francisco Batkid is the best thing to happen this week
And maybe even the best thing ever. Who could say no to a young boy who’s celebrating beating his cancer into remission?
Downtown San Francisco, thanks to the Make-a-Wish Greater Bay Area Foundation, city officials and the work of thousands of volunteers, turned into a Gotham City today, complete with villains like the Riddler and Penguin, just waiting for a tiny caped crusader to swoop in.
The San Francisco Chronicle even published a limited-edition “Batkid Saves City” issue.
Read more on young Miles’ struggle, and his eventual superheroics, over at L.A. Now and Share It Now. And if you’re so inspired, head over to the Make-A-Wish Foundation’s site and perhaps help make more dreams come true (once their site is done being swamped by bat-traffic).

this statue is beautiful. its supposed to symbolize that the angel didnt want them to die. that it wasnt their time to pass on. i went to a local sculptor around my town and asked why most angels are depicted mouring over graves
he said it was because the person committed suicide and the angel said it wasnt their time yet, so they mourned.
and the amazing work on this… the hair.. wings.. arms.
its all amazing handiwork
i would like to touch one of these sort of statues
they look beautiful
An escaped sheep was found with 60 pounds of wool.
Shrek the sheep ran away and hid in a cave in New Zealand for 6 years. When Shrek was finally found in 2004, the sheep had gone unsheared for so long that it had accumulated 60 pounds of wool on its body, enough to make 20 suits! The sheep became famous and even got to meet the Prime Minister. Shrek finally passed away last month at the age of 16.
Its name was Shrek.
too many layers
He feels you Simba.
In recent years, biologists have recognized that birds engage in play. Juvenile Common Ravens are among the most playful of bird species. They have been observed to slide down snowbanks, apparently purely for fun. They even engage in games with other species, such as playing catch-me-if-you-can with wolves, otters and dogs. Common Ravens are known for spectacular aerobatic displays, such as flying in loops or interlocking talons with each other in flight.
They are also one of only a few wild animals who make their own toys. They have been observed breaking off twigs to play with socially.
this is so precious omg
