It’s easy to hate on Logan Paul. A 22-year-old YouTuber with 15 million subscribers, Paul made himself the poster child for shallow and gross behavior this weekend by posting a graphic video in which he finds the body of a man who died by suicide in , a sacred site at the base of Mt. Fuji. The video gained a million likes before Paul took it down.

She’s a refugee from the eastern Somali Region of Ethiopia, which she and her husband fled because of conflict and persecution in the early 2000s. They eventually found a temporary home in Saudi Arabia, where they had children and stayed for seven years — before Layla’s husband was deported in 2010.

And all this time we thought Aesop was some dumb punk making up BS.
As it turns out, the Ancient Greek storyteller credited with the tale of The Tortoise and The Hare had a pretty decent fan theory about what would happen if a tortoise raced a hare: the tortoise would win, slowly and steadily, while the hare would bounce around like a freaking idiot and get embarrassed.

Is the Boise State football dog an elite quarterback? No, but he could be, if someone just gave him a chance.
