Other than people shipping large quantities of chocolate, who doesn't want chocolate to melt? That's kind of the point — melting in your mouth. Or, how about, melting in your pan so you can bake with it?

That hasn't stopped the evil scientists over at Cadbury, the geniuses that brought us those Creme Eggs. They're producing chocolate that doesn't melt and can withstand hot temps! Cray!

They apparently have invented a new Dairy Milk chocolate bar that can withstand up to

Chicken Soul for the Stomach's Soul? Anyone?

LOLz!

The hit book franchise, Chicken Soup for the Soul, is about to start selling their own line of comfort foods.

Because when you think, well, if they can write a book… they probably know how to make a mean soup! Ha!

Angelina Jolie Donates $100,000 On World Refugee Day

Filed under: Angelina JolieCharity

Angie 100000k

Daaaaamn, Angelina Jolie!

You're making everyone else look bad! But you're doing something amazing, so we'll let it slide… ha!

Angie donated $100,000 on World Refugee Day 2012!!

Here's what she said, eloquently:

“Unfortunately, the world is producing displaced people faster than it is producing solutions to displacement. And the solutions are not exclusively humanitarian – they are also political. The international community should rededicate itself to preventing conflict, addressing it when it erupts, and solving it more quickly. For that is the only way to create durable solutions for the refugees whose strength inspires us on this World Refugee Day.”

She is SO focused on helping others — we love it.

Here is her whole message:

UNHCR believes even 1 person forced to flee is too many. And it’s true. Every individual refugee matters. Each has their own story. Each has suffered and survived more than I could ever bear. And yet, they rise up to live another day.

We risk forgetting the individual when we speak in numbers, but the numbers tell an important story. In the past year 4.3 million people have become displaced. There are still 2.7 million refugees from Afghanistan. 12 million people are stateless. And for the fifth consecutive year the number of forcibly displaced people worldwide exceeded 42 million.

Sadly, a person who becomes a refugee is likely to remain one for many years – often stuck in a camp or living precariously in the city of a developing nation. 70 per cent of refugees under UNHCR’s protection have been in this situation for more than five years. Their safety and well-being depend on the continued generosity of those countries who have kept their borders open to refugees, and on the vital efforts to deliver humanitarian assistance wherever and whenever it is necessary.

Unfortunately, the world is producing displaced people faster than it is producing solutions to displacement. And the solutions are not exclusively humanitarian – they are also political. The international community should rededicate itself to preventing conflict, addressing it when it erupts, and solving it more quickly, for that is the only way to create durable solutions for the refugees whose strength inspires us on this World Refugee Day.

So precise, and so to the point!

More people with her kind of means need to step up like this.

The world needs it!

The world appreciates you, Angelina!
