No one in their right mind will think that getting dirty is pleasurable and comfortable. But as the saying goes, there is always an exemption to every rule and in this times where people work hard to live normally or luxuriously, there's a man that does not think that way. Meet Ludvik Dolezal, dubbed as Europe's Dirtiest Man.


Ludvik is from Czech Republic,  a homeless man who quit his job to live his life in the way he wanted it to be and that's to be covered with ASHES. Ludvik likes to be filled with ashes and without ashes, he thinks that there'll be something wrong with him and makes him uncomfortable.


His story goes like this, He has a fascination with ashes and fire. One of his odd and bizarre habit is to sleep with ashes, He burns anything he sees so that it's ashes can be used to cover his bed. He feels cozy with ashes. He quit his job and he burnt all of his belongings. The only thing that was saved from the fire is his radio. This unusual desire of Ludvik is believed to be caused by his mental disorder. The people got to know about him and his bizarre behavior. They would give him tires, woods, papers that he can use to fulfill his love of fire and ashes.

 
 


The newest ad from VH1 entitled "Revenge Of The Nerds" that depicts young kids' typical life at school, being bullied by their schoolmates is already viral since it was shown to the public. The video shows that the one you're bullying are "NERDS TODAY, BOSSES TOMORROW"


BULLYING is a huge problem and everyone should not get bullied or even bully anyone. Though, the ad aims to teach every bullies to stop bullying the weaker or less popular kids in school because in the end, they might end up being your Boss or CEO that may not forget what you've done to them. It is quite misguiding or teaches a wrong lesson to a bullied child. The video even featured a song that has lyrics like this in the tune of Gloria Gaynor's "I WILL SURVIVE" :
All my power I will abuse. I’ll be the CEO, you’ll be the one who shines my shoes.
 I’m going to call night and day and on weekend I’ll send texts….making sure you never rest.
You’ll never get a single raise. You’ll get the same pay until the end of your unhappy days.
And behind a tiny desk you’ll be saying your regret.You’ll be my pet, you’ll be my pet

News sites and some people who have seen the video even commented that the video is misguided or sends out a wrong message. The video is entertaining and fun, quite clever in making a serious problem like bullying not that heavy. But it is like giving the bullied kids a message that they just need to endure all the humiliation and pain they get from being bullied in school because they will eventually have their sweet revenge on their bullies once they grow up and be successful in the future. Holding a grudge or living your life exacting your revenge to people who have wronged you is not a good advice to young kids. Bullying is not acceptable as well. So, two wrongs cannot make it right. Everyone should strive harder to achieve their dreams but if you'll use it as a motivation to have your revenge, may not be right.


The bottomline here is that BULLYING isn't acceptable in any way and will NEVER be.

A mysterious vending machine is creeping out anyone who hears it's story. The soda vending machine can be seen in Seattle. At first glance. The vending machine looks old and anyone who sees it will think that it isn't operating anymore. But the creepiness doesn't rely on the machine's appearance, It is on the machine's stock.


When you look closely on the machine, the lights are still flickering and it is operating well enough.
To make the vending machine look more haunted, the machine seems to work but what everybody's question is how come it still has stocks in it when there is no one supplying it, there's no caretaker for the old machine as well. It might be a prank from someone who wants to scare anyone who will get a chance to check it.


The creepiness doesn't end there, the vending machine is working and still has stocks but what freaks everyone the most is that there's a unusual mystery button that shows up anytime the machine wants to and puts out vintage flavors of sodas such as fruit punch, raspberry iced tea, grape soda, and etc.


It may be a well-planned prank or a good Samaritan fills up the machine without getting noticed or it may be really haunted but it wouldn't hurt if you give the vending machine a try.
