Australian Couple Runs a Marathon Every Day of 2013

As many of you might know, I am a crazy runner. 

When I talk about my running endeavors, many people act like I am crazy. But the truth is it's just like those of you who maybe played soccer from when you were 4 years old, or started football back in the rocket football days and still play occasionally today.

Computer Programmer Teaches Homeless Man Coding [Video]

I came across this video on Facebook about a young computer programmer who encountered a homeless man that intrigued him.

According to the guy, he just couldn't get this man out of his head. So, he designed an offer for him.

The homeless man could either take $100 or a laptop computer, some books and meet daily with him to learn computer coding.

The homeless man did exactly what I assumed he wouldn't do: He took the laptop and training!

The story is awesome, if you ask me. And it left me feeling like a mega-bitch for stereotyping people I don't even know.

Check this out.
