Do You Know Why Women In China Bound Their Feet? The Reason Will Surprise You For Sure

This process begins at the early age of the girl somewhere between 4 and 9 year. First they soak the feet in animal blood and then fold the toes over the sole and bound with cotton bandages.

They break the bones on the arch ad toes by force for easy managing and bound tighter and tighter just to achieve the smallest size possible.

At that time it was considered as beauty ideal and necessary in order to get married and have a better life.

But the reason behind the binding it was not the perceived beauty of tiny broken feet. According to the book.

Splendid Slippers: A Thousand Years Of Erotic Tradition written by Beverly Jackson, it was all about attraction.

Having those tiny feet, the women were forced to walk with unique posture and gait. This posture leads to tightening of the muscles in the upper leg, hips and vagina.

With the whole body weight constantly carried in her heels the women developed fat thighs for which they looked more attractive to men. Also the muscles of the vagina were tighten to such extent that Chinese men have claimed making love to woman with bound feet was like making love to a virgin every time.

Thus, when watching a woman take her cautious, wobbling steps, the male must have been reminded continually of exquisite sexual delights

In addition these are the photos from a British photographer o Farrell who was taking these photographs for the documentation of dying tradition in China: foot binding.

Dad Totally Surprised by Note Furnace Repairman Left On Receipt

Life is full of challenges that cross our path when we least expect them. However, living and surviving means being able to cope with those challenges the best we can. Sometimes a little push from someone is all we need in order to overcome the issues we face, because a small act of kindness can go a long way and restore our faith in humanity.

February 23rd was the day the young parents Jesse and Maria Hulscher welcomed to the world their second baby boy. This made them happy beyond words. They just couldn’t wait to take their son home from hospital and introduce him to his brother and the rest of the family. Since the winter was pretty harsh, they knew they had to make the place warm an cozy for the newborn.

But, they encountered a problem. The furnace in the house stopped working in the middle of the freezing weather, and just before the arrival of Maria and the baby.

Jesse was left alone with his 2-year-old to come up with a quick solution. He was pretty worried because he knew that companies offering repairing services are often very busy and he wasn’t sure whether they could act fast.

“Instantly I panicked,” Jesse said. “I have a two-year-old here, a newborn coming home in a couple days and this was before the big potential snow storm.”

Jesse called Magnuson Sheet Metal to ask them if they could come and fix the furnace before he brought his wife and newborn son home. Jesse’s voice was trembling as he was speaking with the co-owner Craig Aurand who could easily notice that Jesse was in a desperate need of help, so he decided to offer it to the worried father. Just 20 minutes after they spoke on the phone there was someone at the front door. When Jesse opened it he couldn’t believe the staff of Magnuson Sheet Metal could have arrived that quickly.

“He said ‘the fan’s not working, the furnace isn’t working, my wife is in the hospital, we just had a baby yesterday,’” Aurand recalled. “I just said take it easy, we’ll be right there.”

The company repaired the furnace in no time. The heating was on again and now everything was prepared for the big moment.

But, acting quickly and efficiently wasn’t the only thing about the company that stunned Jesse. When he asked for the receipt, he was left in awe once again. Instead of listing the amount of money he should have paid, they left a heartwarming note.

“I opened it up and looked at the receipt and it said, ‘no charge, take care of the new baby,’” Jesse said. While Maria recalled, “I was like, ‘what? No. This can’t be real.’ And he’s like, ‘I know I can’t believe it either.’”

It appeared that Magnuson Sheet Metal was a company known for doing good deeds for people who are in need of their services by not charging families for small jobs which happen on holidays. Things like these make the world a better place.

“We didn’t do it for the PR, we just did it to be good people. That’s it. Just to be nice to these people,” he said. “That’s what this is about.

Just 20% of people can find the error in this picture: Can you?

Something I can not get enough of is brain teasers. Puzzles in a picture and observation challenges were a part of me since I was a kid and I don’t think I’ll ever stop doing them. It’s a great form of relaxation, and it’s something fun that is actually really good for the brain.

Every time my children come to visit, I try to share it with them. It can be anything from cool illusions to funny riddles or even tricky math problems.

Now, today’s youth prefer to sit staring at their “smart”-phones no matter the cost, but from time to time, I manage to get them involved! It’s hard to resist when everyone is looking at the same thing.

In a world where technology does everything for us, I think it’s useful to keep the brain active with different kinds of challenges.

I found this image while surfing online earlier today. It’s actually really good and I had to think a long time before I came up with the correct answer. I found it on the site didyouknowpage.com and apparently only 1 out of 5, that’s 20 percent, gets it right on the first try!

Something is wrong in the picture
It is a picture of a small home in the countryside. In the background, there are hills and meadows, while at the house you will see a gate, a stone wall, and several trees. But something is very wrong in the picture – and your task is to find out what!

So take a minute now. You can start without clues!

What’s wrong with this image?

Remember, only 1 in 5 gets it right, so this is actually quite hard.

If you want a clue, I can tell you that it is worth taking a peek near the chimney and on one of the tallest trees.

If that did not help, we’ll reveal the answer below!

The correct answer is that the wind seems to blow strongly from two different directions in the picture. The smoke from the chimney blows to the right, while the tallest tree gets blown to the left. That’s impossible!

An extra challenge

But you know what? I think we’re doing an extra puzzle!

Can you see what’s wrong with this image of a moon landing?

Were you able to?

Do not give yourself a hard time if you didn’t find the answer. Try once again before scrolling down.

Here comes the solution!

As you know, there is only one moon that mankind can get to. That’s why it’s wrong that from the moon you can see another one. Two moons are just too many, simple but clever.

Autistic boy fails his school exams – his teacher sends him home with a powerful letter that immediately went viral

Raising a child with learning difficulties isn’t any less rewarding than raising one without them, but it can be said that it’s a great deal tougher.

Whilst parents of children without learning difficulties undoubtedly fret over all the usual things a mother or father does, those parents whose children are born with conditions such as autism have all those concerns and more.

What’s more, in addition to the worries of the parents, the children themselves can sometimes struggle in high-pressure social environments. There is no better example of this than school, where grades play a major role in your progress.

11-year-old Ben Twist lives with autism, and his mom Gail was handed a huge surprise when her son’s school sent a letter home after he failed his SAT tests …

When Gail received a letter from Ben’s school, she would have been forgiven for expecting it to say something about how he needed to work harder or improve his grades. Instead, the letter contained nothing of the sort.

The innovative thinkers at Lansbury Bridge School and Sports College, in St. Helens, Merseyside instead gave Ben a boost of confidence. Despite the fact he’d failed his SAT tests, his teacher recognized that what he needed was support, not condemnation.

The letter
Mrs. Clarkson sent him home with a touching letter that let him know just how skilled he is, and what exactly he brings to the table.

The letter reads:

“Dear Ben,

I am writing you to congratulate you on your attitude and success in completing your end of key stage SATs.

Gil, Lynn, Angela, Steph and Anne have worked so well with you this year and you have made some fabulous progress.

I have written to you and your parents to tell you the results of the tests.

A very important piece of information I want you to understand is that these tests only measure a little bit of you and your abilities. They are important and you have done so well, but Ben Twist is made up of many other skills and talents that we at Lansbury Bridge see and measure in other ways.”

The response

Upon reading the letter, Ben’s mom Gail found herself tearing up.

Mrs. Clarkson’s letter went on to list the things Ben was good at, things that a usual school test can’t measure.

“Other talents you have that these tests do not measure include: -Your artistic talents, your ability to work in a team, your growing independence, your kindness, your ability to express your opinion, your abilities in sports, your ability to make and keep friends, your ability to discuss and evaluate your own progress, your design and building talents, and your musical ability.

We are so pleased that all of these different talents and abilities make you the special person you are and these are all of the things we measure to reassure us that you are always making progress and continuing to develop as a lovely, bright young man.

Well done Ben, we are very proud of you.

Best Wishes,

Mrs. Clarkson”

Twitter / Gail Twist
The world needs more teacher’s like Mrs. Clarkson! It would have been all too easy for her to send a standard letter telling Ben’s mom that he needed to improve or change in some way. She didn’t though, because she realizes that judging a fish on its ability to climb a tree is as pointless as judging a monkey on its ability to swim in deep waters.

We hope that Ben takes his teacher’s words to heart and uses them to remember that his value should never be measured by the results of a school test.

Mom confronts loud teens in a hotel only to later find an unexpected note under her door

High schoolers involved in FFA descend upon Indianapolis every year for the huge organization’s annual meeting. They elect new national officers, engage in breakout sessions and accomplish quite a bit while in town.

The students also are encouraged to spread kindness and socialize safely while in town. Except one night, a group of FFA kids from the Eureka, Kansas, FFA chapter were a wee bit too loud for their hotel neighbors and the mom next door was sure to let them know about it.

John and Randi Amt, along with their three kids, had been holed up at a local hotel for 10 days when the FFA kids arrived. The family wasn’t exactly enjoying their lengthy hotel stay, because they were there by necessity.

Their house had been completely flooded and left unhabitable when a toilet malfunctioned while they were out of town. John told WTHR that living for such a period of time in a hotel had become daunting on the family.

“Living in a hotel can be fun for a little while, but being in a hotel for a long time gets to be a little difficult.”

When the FFA kids arrived in town, countless students stayed at their hotel. Randi was already exhausted from driving kids to sports practice and activities back in their home town 30 minutes away.

Randi and John tucked the kids into bed quickly, but the teens outside their door in the hallway were a bit loud. Randi grew frustrated, but realized she shouldn’t talk to the kids as upset as she was, so she headed to bed.

The next evening, she noticed the students’ hotel doors were cracked, so she knocked and asked to speak with them. She pleaded with them to be just a bit quieter at night and told them about her family’s plight.

“I told them that we wanted them to have their fun and we would appreciate their respect to let our kids get a good night’s rest. The young man who answered the door told me that he was very sorry about what we were going through.”

Randi hated to confront the FFA students, but her kids needed better sleep. As she readied for bed, she glanced over toward the hotel room door and noticed that someone had slipped a note under the door.

What she read in the note tugged at her heartstrings. It was from the FFA students and they told her they were sorry about her home.

The note said:

“We are more than sorry for waking you and your family up the past few nights. We hope everything goes well with your house.”

What accompanied the note addressed to her family reassured her that their were still good people in this world. That today’s teens do indeed possess compassion for others going through a rough patch.

“I opened the note to find money. In a world where some people sit behind screens and become angry on social media, this young man restored my faith that the next generation can make eye contact and show compassion to the person right in front of him … They set an excellent example for my children and their parents should be more than proud.”

Even though the Amts are without a home, they decided to take the $40 bestowed upon them by the FFA kids and pay it forward. They bought hats and mittens to donate to a local shelter because those people don’t have a roof over their heads.

How incredibly thoughtful of the FFA high schoolers to not only try to offer a bit of support to the family, but also pen a heartfelt note expressing their sincere apologies!

Girl’s reaction when she finds out she’s being adopted goes viral

This girl’s reaction to finding out she’s going to be adopted is the most beautiful thing

It’s natural for people who are adopted to wonder about their birth families (also called biological families) and where they originate from. This curiosity often intensifies as part of the process of self-discovery that happens in teenage years. Sometimes there are health reasons, or other important reasons, for searching for one’s birth family.

Adoption is the born of a new, permanent relationship between an adoptive parent and child. Once this happens, there is no legal difference between a child is born into a family, or a child who is adopted.

Birth parents have many different reasons for putting children up for adoption. Some decide that they want better lives for their kids than they feel they can provide. Some feel their child would do better living in another country.

Sometimes parents just can’t take good care of a child because of illness or other difficulties. Many birth parents say that having their child placed for adoption with another family is the most difficult thing in the world, but that sometimes it is truly in the child’s best interests.

This girl’s reaction to finding out she’s going to be adopted is the most beautiful thing:
You don’t get to see something beautiful every day… this may be the most beautiful thing on the internet today!

She was praying every day to be adopted, and Paige Zezulka finally was able to adopt her and tell her the great news.

Paige Zezulka writes on her Facebook Post:

This will be my favorite video I ever share. This was the day we told our daughter that we were going to be able to adopt her (and her brother and sister)!

She had been praying to be adopted and we found out on her birthday that it was going to happen! So the next day we gave her this surprise box! God’s timing was perfect!

Our kids spent 1,128 days in foster care, over 3 years. It is so hard on children to live in such uncertainty.

Adoption is amazing and we want others to know that adopting older children and sibling groups can be the most beautiful adventure you could ever have!

Elderly Man Sings To 93-Year-Old Dying Wife, Breaks All Of Our Hearts

An elderly man has been filmed singing a love song to his dying wife in what is quite possibly the most heartwarming video we have ever seen.The couple, 92-year-old Howard and 93-year-old Laura, have been married for 73 years and their love for one another is clearly as strong as it ever was.

When Howard visited his wife in a hospice, where she is spending her final days, the couple couldn’t resist singing their favourite love song together. While Laura may be too weak to sing, she was able to speak the words to her beloved while he softly stroked her face.

“I was lucky enough to capture this precious, heart-melting moment between the two of them,” she explained.”Howard is singing to her their love song, the song that comforted her when he went away to fight in World War II.

At family gatherings, it was not uncommon for the two of them to sing this song together, each taking a verse and serenading the other.”In fact, after fifty years of marriage, they renewed their vows and performed this song as a duet for the entire family at the reception.”

She added: “Moments before this video began, when Grandma heard that Grandpa was in the room, she asked if she could hold him. Grandpa cannot stand on his own, but he immediately pulled his wheelchair close to her bed ready to make it happen. My cousin, Serena, who is a physical therapist, helped him to his feet and held him up throughout the entire song.”

Erin adds that Laura has macular degeneration, meaning she cannot see anything besides shadow and light. Meanwhile her grandfather has lost most of his hearing and the family need to repeat words for him as the grandmother is too weak to raise her voice.

Deaf baby hears mum for the first time and her reaction is just priceless

Two-month old Charly was diagnosed with profound hearing loss when she was born. She had never heard her mother’s voice until she was fitted with hearing aids recently.

Her mother, Christy Keane, shared the video of Charly reacting to her saying ‘I love you’ after she was fitted with hearing aids.

As Christy said ‘I love you’ to Charly, the adorable baby got emotional as she finally got a chance to hear her mother’s voice for the first time.

She may be just two months old but her expression says more than everything; she loves her mother too!

Baby Charly tried to hold back her tears upon hearing her mother’s voice for the first time.

Everything seemed normal when Charly was first born. She was a healthy baby girl but it began when she did not respond to noises and voices. Upon realising this, her parents brought her for a hearing test and the results was terribly devastating; her hearing is impaired and she needs to use hearing aids.

Christy Keane said that none of her and husband’s family members have history of impaired hearing. Nevertheless, she was grateful that Charly is a beautiful and healthy baby girl and being deaf will not stop them to help Charly achieves for the best in her life.

“This is shocking news, but it’s not sad news. This sweet baby is beautiful and healthy and so capable of achieving everything she wants in life and we will make sure that happens!”

“We didn’t think she would hear anything so this was more incredible than I can put in to words. Her journey to implants and language development is off to an amazing start!” Christy said in her Instagram.

The video has gone viral on the internet with more than 222, 000 views so far.
