Shark attack headlines have you running away from the beach? Well, a Tennessee woman has some advice for you.
“Go to the beach — don’t go to the ocean. The ocean is the shark’s house.”
Veronica “Pooh” Nash Poleate says in a Facebook video titled “Summer Safety Tips.”
Veronica was inspired to make this video on the way to church one day after hearing another story about a shark attack.
“I’m on my way to church this morning, but I wanted to make a quick video because my spirit was troubled this morning. I had the news on, and it was talking about somebody else done got ate up by a shark.”
The video has taken the Internet by storm, and the post already has more than 11 million views.
“The shark has the right to eat you up when you get in his house,” she warns. “When chickens come in my house, guess what? They get ate. When pigs come in my house, they on my plate. When you go into the shark’s house, you gonna be ate up.”
“Let’s use some common sense. If you going to the beach, you go to the

This kid is dancing, and he doesn’t care who is watching!Read More »from Kid crushes poolside version of ‘Cuban Pete’ dance from ‘The Mask’
The star of the video is Guillermo Gael Delgado Garcia. Remember his name — we’re sure that one day you’ll see it in lights.
Guillermo’s aunt Lazarin Delgado Oviedo posted the video of her nephew dancing poolside to Jose Norman’s “Cuban Pete,” and it has gone viral, with more than 5 million views on Facebook.
The dance is a loose interpretation of Jim Carrey’s performance in “The Mask.”
We can’t get enough of Guillermo, but we hope that next time he picks a less wet surface to dance on.

We’ve all been there — our phone is dying, and we just need a little juice. We’ve scrambled to the nearest outlet, no matter where, no matter how demeaning. We just couldn’t miss that next text, all right?!
We get it. Desperate times call for desperate measures. But NOT when those desperate measures involve breaking what is left of the last of human decency: theater etiquette.
However low our cell phone charging standards, this (hopefully now blacklisted) theatergoer has really blown us away.
While attending a Broadway performance of the play “Hand to God,” a man in chinos brazenly hopped onstage to plug his phone into an outlet before the show.
The outlet “shockingly” was not real. It was a prop, a part of the set located on the stage he climbed onto.
He and his cell phone were immediately escorted back to their seats.
We really hope that nothing above 10 percent battery power led this man to such insane and desperate actions.Read More »from Insane theatergoer attempts to charge phone onstage

A new social media challenge is going viral, and this time around it involves teens trying to look unattractive for the camera.Read More »from Teens getting 'ugly' for social media in the #DontJudgeChallenge
Smearing makeup on their faces to create fake acne, uni-brows, and scars, the teens re-emerge after quick blackout to reveal their true, beautiful, meticulously made-up selves.
The #DontJudgeChallenge started with good intentions — it was supposed to be a social media campaign against body-shaming — but it has since drawn a lot of backlash.
The point of the campaign is to not "judge a book by its cover," but critics say the challenge only continues to reinforce stereotypes of what is beautiful and what is ugly. At the same time, the videos mock people who do have these "flaws."
Many of the critics have started a counter-movement, #BeautyInAllChallenge, where all faces are embraced, no transformation needed.
As for the #DontJudgeChallenge, maybe it should be renamed: #Don'tJudgeMeI LookBeautifulWithMakeup — but that's probably not the best hashtag.
