Motorists honk and speed past truck parked at stop sign. Teen walks up and stops cold at view inside

Most teen drivers are eager to jump on the road and get moving. Speeding, weaving through traffic and blasting loud music is almost a rite of passage for new American drivers.

Fortunately, one 16-year-old driver doesn’t fit that mold and stopped to help a stranger when other drivers were too busy to notice something was wrong….

16-year-old Max Greenwood was cruising in his truck when he noticed a driver parked at a stop sign and seemingly in distress. Max looked around at the scene and realized other drivers were irritated that their path was blocked and completely unaware that the driver needed help.

Instead of honking and maneuvering around the car like the other drivers, Max told KREM News that he jumped out of his truck and ran to the man’s aid.

“A few people were honking and a couple of people passed him because they were frustrated he was stopped. I didn’t want to just honk and be a dirt bag like that.”

Max’s swift actions inspired two other women to rush over to the stopped car and help as well.

At first they didn’t know what was wrong with him, then the driver mustered enough strength to share why he was stopped in the middle of the road. The brave teen shared what happened next with KREM News.

“He told the women he thought his blood sugar was low.

He got progressively worse. One of the women gave him a Coke to help his sugar levels, but I could tell it wasn’t helping, so I called 911.”

Within minutes, help arrived and the man was transported to the hospital. First responders also recognized that he was suffering from some type of medical episode and needed help right away!

When asked why he stepped in to help, Max told KREM News there’s a simple explanation.

“It’s a person. If I was in his situation, I would want someone to help me…. I stopped because I always try and make an effort to help people on the side of the road.”

Max’s mother raised him to be a kind, caring human being – and stepping in to help those in need is just part of that role.

His mother, Mary Pudelko, shared how proud she was of her son with KREM News.

“You preach to your kids that you need to do the right thing, and when he did I was really proud.

In this day and age, when a lot of kids don’t think about anyone but themselves, he stepped up and it made a difference.”

Without Max’s quick thinking, there’s a good chance that the motorist’s blood sugar levels would’ve dipped to dangerous levels.

The Titanic sank due to a fire, not an iceberg apparently

Someone better call up Leo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet, because it sounds like there’s a remake in order.

According to experts, new evidence strongly suggests it was a fire in the Titanic’s hull that was the primary cause of demise. Researchers say the fire burned unnoticed for three weeks leading up to the collision.

These new claims come from a new analysis of rarely seen photographs of the Titanic. Irish journalist, Senan Molony, has spent more than 30 years studying the sinking of the great ship and has identified 30-foot-long black marks along the front right-hand side of the hull. This is presumably where the fire was.

“We are looking at the exact area where the iceberg stuck, and we appear to have a weakness or damage to the hull in that specific place, before she even left Belfast,” says Molony.


Experts have confirmed the marks are likely caused by a fire started in a fuel storage spot behind one of the ship’s boiler rooms. A team of 12 men attempted to put out the fire, but it was too large to control, reaching over 1800 degrees Fahrenheit.

Because the fire weakened the structure of the boat, when the Titanic hit the iceberg, the steel lining tore open and the ship took on water.

Molony also says the crew knew about the fire and the fatalities should also be blamed on their criminal negligence, saying the ship never should have been put to sea to begin with.

“The official Titanic inquiry branded [the sinking] as an act of God. This isn’t a simple story of colliding with an iceberg and sinking,” said Molony in a documentary. “It’s a perfect storm of extraordinary factors coming together: fire, ice and criminal negligence. Nobody has investigated these marks before. It totally changes the narrative. We have metallurgy experts telling us that when you get that level of temperature against steel it makes it brittle, and reduces its strength by up to 75 per cent. The fire was known about, but it was played down. She should never have been put to sea.”


So it’s not like the iceberg had ZERO cause in the tragedy, but it’s clear the accident could have been far less deadly if it weren’t for the fire.

Only a very small number of people know what this is!

I had no idea what it is! And you?

Of course, we can’t get to know everything. But thanks to such articles we can get to know more about different things that are or were around us! So read about it below!

If you know what these are, you’re a very lucky person because who didn’t have an amazing time at a drive in theater? Yes, these are speakers for the drive in movie theaters that you connected to the radio in your car to be able to hear the movies.

I so miss the drive in theaters. It was so beautiful on a summer night to enjoy a movie with the family in the car (or with a date 😉 I remember bringing food, putting the chairs on the back of the truck. I wish there were dissapearing like they.

The purpose-built drive-in theater opened back in 1933 in Pennsauken, New Jersey. The format was marketed as a family-friendly entertainment, with ads noting, “The whole family is welcome, regardless of how noisy the children are.”

The late 1950s and the early 1960s, though, were the real drive-in glory days, when there were about 4000 such venues spread across the country — about a quarter of the total number of movie theatres.

(No doubt much of the popularity was thanks to the teen set, who flocked to drive-ins on date night.) As of 2013, however, traditional indoor theaters account for more than 98 percent of all screens.

Do you have a record player at home? Hit up thrift stores on the weekend for vintage bargains? Tote around a Polaroid camera? No doubt about it: Retro revivals are big these days. But when it comes to blasts from the past, the drive-in is really where it’s at.

Because (not that we’re biased or anything) what’s cooler than rolling up to a big-screen theater on a summer night with a few friends, some fresh air—maybe even some snacks brought straight to your window?

Since the founding of the very first drive-in (Park-In Theaters in Camden, NJ, which opened to the public in 1933), the invention quickly became a staple of summertime entertainment.

More followed shortly after: As the number of drivers in the U.S. soared, so, naturally, did the number of drive-ins. At their high water mark in 1958, more than 4,000 were found across the country.

Though there aren’t nearly as many around these days, the drive-in is far from extinct. (It’s true!) For a dose of summertime Americana and movies al fresco, we’ve rounded up six of the best drive-in movie theaters around the country.

Goodbye, stale popcorn smells and that kid who keeps kicking your seat; hello, screenings under the stars.

It’s The World’s Only Private Boeing 787. Step Inside And Your Jaw Will Instantly Drop

The world’s most luxurious private jet, complete with high-tech amenities, a master bedroom, and enough room for 40 people, is truly one-of-a-kind — and it cost an estimated $310 million to produce. The commercial Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft can usually carry between 240 and 335 passengers — but the purpose of this model is a little bit different.

The aircraft has been gutted and fully renovated to include market-leading technological innovations, including remote-controlled blinds and furniture, dimmable lighting, and an extra spacious shower. The commercial-aircraft-turned-private-jet is the only one of its kind — and costs around $74,000 an hour to hire.
