Mike Mika‘s three year old daughter loves the classics. Video games that is. Her favorite is Donkey Kong, but she wondered why there wasn’t an option to choose to play as a princess to save a distressed Mario at the beginning of the game.

Computer programmer dad got on the case, and made Donkey Kong: Pauline Edition. Now, video of the game play has gone viral, amassing over 750,000 hits in just a few days. 

The video has been covered on countless publications, including Forbes, MetaFilter, NBCNews, EnGadget, and Mashable

It truly takes guts to not only ask a question in front of your countless peers at Vanderbilt University, but also to ask your musical idol if you can play with him.

And that’s exactly what student Michael Pollack did during “An Evening of Questions and Answers and a Little Bit of Music” with Billy Joel at Vanderbilt two months ago. 

In a packed auditorium, Michael asked, “My favorite song of your is New York State Of Mind… I was wondering if I could play with you…. I would accompany you that is.”  

Incredibly, Billy simply answered, “OK,” to which the crowd erupted in applause. 

After a few moments getting set up, Michael was finally playing his favorite song with the one and only Billy Joel singing at the microphone in front of a crowded auditorium.

A moment he will truly never forget.

AkonTpain17 was with his friends at the Family Dollar store when they encountered a puddle in the parking lot. Being teenagers messing around, one of Lakeem’s friends dared him to jump into the small puddle with his nice new tennis shoes while his friend recorded. 

But to everyone’s surprise, Lakeem didn’t softly splash in the water. Rather, he sank until his head was underwater

For those who doubt the videos authenticity, AkonTpain writes, “We all thought it was a puddle SWEAR TO GOD!”
