    "Some things in life are bad,
    They can really make you mad.
    Other things just make you swear and curse.
    When you're chewing on life's gristle,
    Don't grumble, give a whistle!
    And this'll help things turn out for the best

    Always look on the bright side of life!"

    - From Mony Python's Life of Brian

    Some days we really hate life, we feel sad or angry or stressed out. But if we laugh or find something positive going on in the world, it can make you feel a whole lot better. So, share something that makes you happy when you're upset, or just share something that shows the good in the world. You might just brighten up someone's day! :)

    Note: This IS NOT the same as the "What Made you frown Today" thread. This thread isn't to come vent about being upset, it's about cheering up. This also isn't the same as the "Smile" thread, which is about listing the things that made you happy that day.:

    This family's pet duck flew away for the winter. But after the winter he came back to his home and was very happy to be back in a nice warm home, and eating their dog's food like there's no tomorrow:

    I didn't know an adult duck could be that adorable. I also didn't know that ducks could be that emotionally attached to humans.

    Interesting. It sounds like a cross between a Beatles song and The Partridge Family theme.

    I felt a little bit of a Brady Bunch vibe myself, if only because earlier in the episode, Alvin mentioned one of Theodore's biggest fears is the Brady Bunch theme (that, and I was reminded of that Brady Bunch parody episode 2 STUPID DOGS did, complete with a random show-stopping number about lawnmowing).
    As long as we're on the subject of duckies:

    Ah yes. I've been on a baby duck video kick this whole week. Once you watch one video of an adorable duckling chasing a human, you can't stop, lol :excited::excited:

    I can attest to that; when I get to watching one bunny video, I just keep on keepin' on.

    Ironically, I remember about a year ago or so, for whatever reason, I kept watching a bunch of Bigfoot videos . . . for really no reason. It did, however, lead me to this investigation of escaped (or freed) genetic creatures lurking in a forest park in the Netherlands that's been really, really interesting.

    But hey, more duckies!

    Why thank you. We need more positivity in the world! :)
    Yeah, a few years ago I got super into videos of people exploring old abandoned amusement parks and buildings for some reason. Super creepy and atmospheric, but also cool to learn a bit about the past.

    Like so many of them, he was one of my favorite YouTubers until he shifted gears. Cons just aren't my thing.
