A study by the National Literacy Trust found that one third of UK dads aren’t encouraging their children to read. This figure is up 30% from 2009, the last year that data was available on the topic.
The study also found that the number of mothers who are never seen reading has been relatively steady at one-in-six.
UPDATE: Evidently, this video was faked. But it’s a great fake. Original article below…
No, seriously, WTF?
Not that we’re scared or nothin’, because, you know, eagles are like, totally a thing only in movies, but have you ever seen something like this?
Evidently the story goes like this (with flair added): dad’s at a Montreal park with his child, when suddenly, a golden eagle swoops down from out of nowhere and grabs the kid. The eagle’s like “OMG, this is a person, not a field mouse” and drops the child. Then some dude is like “I HAS IT ON A VIDEOTAPE” and everyone’s like “that’s not tape dude, it’s digital.” Then, hearty laughs.
