Laughter A pet is the great medicine!
When Dave Sharp began suffering from post traumatic stress disorder after encountering two near-death experiences in Saudi Arabia and Pakistan, he found peace from his six month old puppy.
"There are 18 veterans that commit suicide every day in America. And there's an animal that is put to sleep every 8 seconds."
So Dave started this ultra fabulous program called "Pets To Vets" - which pairs war vets with a companion.
Just watch to see how grateful the vets, and the pets, are for this program!
Although the US government didn't discover that Osama bin Laden was hiding in a well-guarded house in Pakistan until sometime this past year, everyone should have just been listening to the NBC/ABC comedy Scrubs, because apparently, they've known since 2007!
Check out this clip from the sitcom, featuring "Janitor", played by Neil Flynn, telling Zach Braff exactly where to look in the episode His Story IV (above)!
We bet if the show were still on the air, Zach's character would be feeling pretty stoopid right now!
What do U think?? Coincidence or some bizarre prophecy?
No surprises here!
Following last night's announcement about Osama Bin Laden's death, we're not shocked to learn that an Osama movie appears to be on its way.
The film is about "the hunt for Osama Bin Laden," and it's being tentatively titled Kill Bin Laden.
The Hurt Locker director Kathryn Bigelow has been in active development on the project, and given last night's news, it's likely to get fast-tracked.
The film is reportedly based on a mission to hunt down and kill Bin Laden when he was reportedly hiding in the mountainous border region between Pakistan and Afghanistan.
Certainly a timely project, Kathryn. Good luck…and treat it with care!
How do U feel about an Osama Bin Laden film?

Groundbreaking! This is so HUGE!
Pakistan's Supreme Court ruled today that the country's transsexual citizens will be allowed to have their own gender category on official documents, including their national identity cards!
Such an amazing step forward! We couldn't be more proud of the government for for taking such a positive, accepting, and proactive step toward equal rights!
Thank you, guys! Hopefully other countries - including the United States - will follow suit!
Sesame Street continues to be a universal learning tool for children as it will now be broadcast in Pakistan to help boost education.
The U.S. is donating $20 million to fund a local version of the show, which will have the traditional New York City setting swapped for a Pakistani village.
Don't expect to see Big Bird or Cookie Monster though, as the show will feature new characters including Rani, a six-year-old female puppet with pigtails and a blue-and-white school uniform and will speak in Urdu.
Writer for the Pakistani version, Imraan Peerzada says:
"She will represent what little girls have to go through in this gender-biased society.
We are not avoiding religion‚ but we don't want to label children…the basic learning tools of literacy‚ numeracy‚ hygiene‚ and healthy eating have to be in place first."
Good work, Sesame Street. What a fantastic idea.
We know every creature serves a purpose on this fantastic planet, but this imagery still gives us the shivers!
Due to excessive flooding in Pakistan in 2010 that submerged a fifth of the country, MILLIONS of spiders took to the trees to escape the rising flood waters.
Pictured above are the trees that they effectively cocooned in spider webs, while seeking shelter from the water.
Unfortunately, spiders weren't the only creature affected by the flooding and 20 million human lives were also disrupted as a result.
However, remember that thing about every creature serving a purpose?
In the areas where spiders took over the trees, there are significantly less malaria-spreading mosquitos that are expected to accompany stagnant water.
Hooray for spiders! Creepy, disgusting spiders. Seriously though…good job spiders.
