This Clock Is Hiding A Dark Secret And It’s Absolutely Brilliant. Check It Out.

When we get gifts from our mother, we never think much about where they were bought. But we know she loves us, especially when we receive something beautiful and unique. So when one young man got a special package in the mail, something truly beautiful, he was impressed. But even more so when he turned it over. Kinda.

Oh look at this awesome gift. It’s just beautiful.

But then turn it over and… whoa, that leaves a mark.

Whoa. Not sure how I’d feel getting a gift made by someone convicted of sodomy. Although this present was made by a convicted felon, it’s truly great that they have learned a skill, and give back to society. And thanks to the Oregon prison system, where there’s almost no prison violence and a HUGE proportion of prisoners have some type of productive role within the prison, all prisoners get to purchase their own materials and sell whatever they make for whatever price somebody is willing to spend. It’s awesome. But still… I have my hesitations. How would you react? (H/T: Reddit) Share this… interestingly made work of art with others.

This Is What Happens When A Mom Takes Lessons From A Pro Skateboarder

Mom of three Jennifer Latch had never been on a skateboard until pro-skater Aaron Kyro agreed to give her a lesson.

1. When Jennifer Latch decided that she wanted to learn how to skateboard she wasn’t going to let being a mom of three stop her.

Latch tracked down pro skateboarder (and YouTuber) Aaron Kyro and convinced him to teach her how to ride.

2. The two met up near San Francisco’s Civic Center, where Jennifer made a determined student.

3. She took her lumps, but she took ‘em like a mom.

4. “I am raising three girls” Latch told BuzzFeed Life. “I want to show them it’s ok to push gender boundaries. I want to show them it’s ok to put yourself out there and to continue to stay active.”

She continued; “It’s important to take time for self-exploration and personal growth. Learning to ollie is a start.”
