Pat yourself on the back Internets, you've come through again!
A terminally ill Star Trek mega-fan was able to screen a rough cut of the upcoming J.J. Abrams sequel, and it wouldn't have been possible without an internet plea that went viral.
Daniel, a 41-year-old man diagnosed with only weeks to live, was hospitalized and missed out on the nine minute Into Darkness trailer attached to select screenings of The Hobbit and it absolutely crushed his spirit.
The man's loving wife made an open-ended plea to the internet, asking if anyone could assist in getting him a copy of the lengthy preview.
Once the heartfelt request went viral, Paramount and J.J. did them one better — they invited them for a special

Hospital officials have confirmed that former President George H.W. Bush has been moved to the intensive care unit.
Sources say George Senior has been struggling with "fever, weakness and a bronchitis-like cough." He has been hospitalized at Methodist Hospital in Houston since November for similar symptoms.
It seems his conditions are not improving. :(
The 88-year-old Bush patriarch was planning on spending the Christmas at home with his family, but he was kept in the hospital after getting a bad fever.
Our hearts go out to George H.W. the Bush family!
We wish him a speedy and safe recovery!

We've said it before and we'll say it again: Poor, poor Charlie Sheen's kids!
most reliable parent momma, Brooke Mueller, as violated her probation by drinking alcohol, and could be headed to jail!
Informants close to the situation say Sheen's ex-wife was caught with gin and juice (or some kind of alcohol) in her system while being hospitalized last week for "OD'ing" on "drugs."
As you may recall, Brooke's publicist called her little hospital rendezvous a "false alarm."
Now it seems clear that Mz. Mueller was suffering from "exhaustion and dehydration" cuz she was drinking — not OD'ing!
Prosecutors have yet to file a motion to remove Brooke from probation, and send her to the slammer. So, there's a (small) chance she will not be getting any punishment for this mess.
Only time will tell.
