According to the 2018 World Happiness Report, Finland is officially the happiest country in the world.

This Dog Died After A United Airlines Flight Attendant Put It In An Overhead Bin

An unnamed flight attendant is being investigated by United Airlines for forcing a passenger to place their dog in an overhead bin for the duration of a flight from Houston to New York. The airline is taking full responsibility for the incident while confirming that placing pets in the overhead compartments is not a policy they allow. “This was a tragic accident that should never have occurred,” the airline said in a statement, while they wished to convey their “deepest condolences to the family.” Other passengers on the plane reported hearing barking during the flight, but nobody realized the dog had passed away until the plane had landed in NYC. By law, it is required of all U.S. carriers to report back to the U.S. Department of Transportation any incidents involving the loss, injury or ...

This Flooded Brazilian Rainforest Looks Stunning Underwater

Nobody is mad about this beautifully natural accident that just occurred in Jardim, Brazil. Earlier this month, their nature reserve was flooded by the unusual amount of heavy rainfall they’ve been experiencing lately. However, the flooding was a blessing in disguise, as the whole preserve was transformed into a rare, underwater paradise. The Atlas Obscura reported that this phenomenon occurs when heavy rains hit the Rio de Prata which causes it to slow down, dam, and increase the water level at the Olho d’Agua. According to the reserve, the water from the Olho D’Agua river is clear, “due to their conserved riparian forest and being inside a Private Reserve of the Natural Patrimony – PRNP, a type of Conservation Unit.” [embedded content] A park ranger had the unique pleasure of discovering...

Scientists Believe Bones Found On Pacific Island Belong To Amelia Earhart

The disappearance of renowned pilot Amelia Earhart has remained one of the largest mysteries for decades. Finally — at long last — scientists think they’ve finally uncovered the truth behind her vanishing. In a newly-released study, University of Tennessee professor Richard Jantz stated that bones found in the Pacific have been identified as belonging to the late adventurist. The bones themselves were actually discovered on Nikumaroro island during expeditions in 1940 to recover her body. They were suspected at the time to have belonged to the late Earhart, as the island wasn’t far from her flight path, but the evidence wasn’t conclusive enough to say for sure. Also, some scientists deduced that the bones belonged to a man, therefore ruling out Earhart as the prime candidate. Now, however,...
