This Homeless Man Fell Down And EVERYONE Ignored Him. Until Finally …My Heart Shattered

Should appearance matter when helping an injured person? These guys set up an experiment to find out how many people would help a well dressed man compared to a homeless person. As you would expect, the guy in a business suit was offered a hand almost before he even touched the ground, but what about the other guy? He’s probably drunk and dirty and smells bad, or at least that’s how most of us feel about the homeless, but would it stop you from helping him back on his feet?

Check out this video and make your own conclusions, but remember this – they are real human beings who live all around us, and even though this guy was only acting, they experience the same thing every day. Share this to raise awareness.

 

Dead Biker Buried Riding Harley in Giant Transparent Casket

Years before Billy Standley died on Sunday, he planned out every detail of his funeral: He bought up the three plots next to his wife’s grave, had his sons build him a custom casket, and arranged for the funeral director to embalm him in a sitting position. Earlier today, Standley’s dream funeral took place, and he was laid to rest atop his beloved Harley-Davidson.

Standley first came up with the idea 18 years ago and, with the help of his family, worked on it on and off for years. The casket was made out of plexiglass, with wood and steel rods reinforcing its bottom.

“If you stopped by his house, he showed you his casket,” his son Roy Standley told the Dayton Daily News. “He was proud of it.”

Dave and Tammy Vernon, co-owners of a funeral home, were tasked with the embalming process. “We’ve done personalization… but nothing this extreme,” Tammy Vernon said.

From the Dayton Daily News :

Five embalmers prepared his body and secured him with a metal back brace and straps to ensure he’d never lose his seat on his beloved bike, even as it was towed by a trailer to his final resting place. The casket was assembled in the garage of Vernon’s’ funeral home in Mechanicsburg, enshrining him with his trophies and well-worn leathers.

Along with his friends and family, motorcyclists from across the country reportedly rode along with his funeral procession through Mechanicsburg, Ohio.

“He’d done right by us all these years, and at least we could see he goes out the way he wanted to,” his son Pete Standley said.

 

WATER-SKIPPING FAIL!!! (SNOWMOBILE SLAMS INTO A TREE!!)

This video has the crash in slow motion unlike the original video.

I ran into this group while snowmobiling one weekend a few years ago. This was obviously the first time this guy had ever skipped water. Not to mention….. Did you see that tree right in front of you?? DUH!!!!!
Sorry for the shaky cam… it was shot with an old point & shoot while wearing winter gloves.

They Gave Homeless Man A Pizza. What He Did With It Melted My Heart

Would you share your food with a hungry stranger? If you answered NO, don’t feel bad.

You can’t understand anyone’s problems until you walked a mile in their shoes, so is it really a surprise that an average guy wasn’t willing to share his slice of pizza with these guys just because they asked for it? But watch what happens when they ask for a slice from a guy who knows what it’s like to be hungry and what a relief it is to finally put food in your mouth.

On the other hand, the reason Average Joe didn’t want to share is because they know those Nike shoes are probably worth at least a week’s worth of large pizzas. These guys suck at pretending they’re hungry.

 

National Council of Clubs Responds to Denver Motorcycle Expo Shooting

The National Council of Clubs, an organization dedicated to protecting the political and legal interests of hundreds of motorcycle clubs and thousands of their members nationwide, is issuing the following statement related to Saturday’s shooting at the Colorado Motorcycle Expo in Denver:

Various media sources have reported that a confrontation between two motorcycle clubs, the Mongols and the Iron Order, resulted in at least one confirmed dead and at least 7 injured during the Colorado Motorcycle Expo Saturday, January 30th. The National Council of Clubs is deeply disturbed by such unnecessary acts of violence at any event, particularly one as well supported by the community over the years as the Colorado Motorcycle Expo, the largest indoor motorcycle swap-meet in the country.

Council of Clubs attorney Wade Eldridge was present at the expo and in fact witnessed much of the confrontation. Mr. Eldridge says that he was present when he saw a crowd of Mongols and Iron Order, approximately a total of 20-30 individuals, gather inside the expo. According to Eldridge there was yelling and a verbal argument ensuing.

Mr. Eldridge then heard a gunshot. He saw an Iron Order member holding a handgun in his right hand with his right arm extended. According to Eldridge, he heard people shouting, “Put your gun away”. The Iron Order member then dropped his arm and pointed his weapon at the ground, says Eldridge.  Eldridge then called 911 and reported what he saw.

Eldridge’s account is validated by this photo taken by a Council of Clubs participant that happened to be present when the conflict began. This photo was taken following the first shot fired, the source says. The photo shows a member of the Iron Order moving away from the crowd holding a gun in his right hand.

The gun is pointed forward. Eldridge has confirmed that the man in this photo is the same man he saw with a gun extended in his right hand. Eldridge says this man “is the same guy I saw.” This is also the same man identified by eyewitnesses, as reported by many media sources, as the member of the Iron Order that was questioned by police following the shooting.

In another photo provided by the same Council of Clubs participant, this same man, following the shooting, is pictured with another Iron Order member (who appears to be posing) and two law enforcement officers. He is not in handcuffs and is in fact being allowed to use a cell phone even though he is suspected of firing shots.

Stephen Stubbs, an attorney for the Mongols Motorcycle Club, stated that members of the Iron Order is predominately made up of police officers and taunted members of the Mongols into an argument that escalated into violence that led to the fatal shooting of a Mongols member.

John C. Whitfield, a lawyer and Iron Order member, confirmed to the Denver Post that Iron Order members include L.E.O.’s. Relating to this specific shooting, Whitfield told the Denver AP, “a Colorado Department of Corrections officer fired his gun during a weekend brawl at a Denver motorcycle show that left one dead and seven others injured.”

 The Iron Order Motorcycle Club has been involved in a laundry list of confrontations around the country with other motorcycle clubs that have resulted in violence or death. For example, on June 26, 2014 Florida State Attorney Angela Corey refused to charge Iron Order prospect Kristopher Stone after he shot and killed Black Pistons patch holder Zachariah Tipton in Jacksonville Beach. Corey outrageously ruled the killing was justifiable homicide even though the Iron Order member shot the unarmed Black Pistons motorcycle club member in the face while only a few feet apart.
