  • Prom season is in full swing and “promposals” are all the rage on the Internet, but this latest might bring a tear to your eye.

    Carrying a large bouquet of red roses, Jacksonville Jaguars player Sen’Derrick Marks asked an 18-year-old cancer patient, Khameyea Jennings, to her prom.

    Marks surprised Jennings in her hospital room at Wolfson Children’s Hospital to pop the big promposal question — and don’t worry, he cleared it with her mom first.

    “I heard you had a prom this weekend, and I wanted to know if I can take you to prom,” Marks asked her.

    A very shocked Jennings said yes!

    Marks’ surprise visit was part of Dreams Come True, a program that helps children and teens in Florida who are battling life-threatening illnesses.

  • By now, you may have seen Microsoft’s new age-guessing site, how-old.net.

    The app attempts to guess a person’s age based on a photo, and the Internet is freaking out about how incredibly bad it is at guessing ages.

    While the age-guessing algorithm may not be totally accurate, it’s very entertaining to see the results!

    To test it out all you have to do is upload a photo, let the age-guessing algorithm go to work, and then... read ’em and weep, especially if the app ages you by more than a few years.

    “This is a fun story of how we were expecting perhaps 50 users for a test, but in the end, got over 35,000 users and saw the whole thing unfold in real time,” the creators of how-old.net, Corom Thompson and Santosh Balasubramanian wrote in a blog post.

  • Tom Dickson, Blendtec founder and general expert on all blendable things, has attempted to blend just about every product Apple has to offer. So it should come as no surprise that he just subjected the new Apple Watch to the Blendtec Will It Blend test.

    Apple enthusiasts may want to shield their eyes after Dickson drops the Apple Watch into a blender and turns it on.

    The smartwatch puts up a good fight in the first few seconds of the Will It Blend test — but the clear victor here is the blender.

    By the time Dickson is done, the Apple Watch is nothing more than a pile of black powder.

  • It’s every homeowner’s nightmare, coming back to a completely destroyed house.

    Star and Mark King rented out their home in Calgary, Canada for a weekend on Airbnb to four adults who claimed they were in town for a wedding. But a few hours after the Kings turned over their keys to the renters, a party bus with over 100 people inside pulled up at the house.

    The Kings had no idea what was going on inside their home until they started receiving calls and texts from their neighbors to let them know the police had arrived.

    The police received three noise complaints over the weekend, and eventually they shut the party down after reports that a fight had broken out. The police were still on the scene when the Kings returned on Monday to find their house in shambles.

    “Our hardwood floors are all popping because there are pools of liquor. There’s glass shards, there’s a dent in our walls, toilets flooded and plugged with condoms,” said Star King.

    “For me, my first feeling was shock,” Mark King

  • When you were a kid, did you ever tell your parents you wanted to run away? A feisty 5-year-old threatened to move out of her mom’s house, and thanks to good old YouTube we get to watch the funny exchange she had. Check out little Saige’s proclamation that she must move on.  The video has already been viewed more than 100,000 times on YouTube!

    So where does she want to go? Saige says, “I’m moving on. I’m going to Jen’s.” By the way, Jen is her mom’s best friend.

    Saige is also not happy with the conditions of her living quarters: “My bedroom is a zaster [disaster].”

    When Mom asks Saige’s brother Tanner, “What did you say to her to make her mad?” Saige responds for him with, “He was throwing dirt at me, Mom.”

    We totally blame Tanner for this. Throwing dirt is not cool.
