Politician Introduces Bill To Make The High Five The Official State Greeting

Democratic lawmaker, Courtney Allen Curtis, has introduced a bill to the Missouri House of Representatives that would make the high five the state's official greeting. 

The bill, HB 1624, reads: "The high five is friendly, fun, and can lift spirits; and with tensions running high in the Capitol building, the high five might be just what Missouri needs." 

He explained, "An official state greeting could help to break up the monotony of the day-to-day work and promote a friendlier environment between both sides of the aisle."

The bill is getting a high five from some Missourians, while others worry that it could spread germs and illnesses.

If the bill does pass, it would take effect on Aug. 28.

Imagine His Suprise.. Man Holding Fortune Didn't Realise It. 

A real estate agent in California had something incredibly valuable and didn't even realize it. 

Over 30 years ago, the 56-year-old man inherited an odd, silver-colored penny from his father, a former deputy superintendent of the Denver Mint. When he recently moved from Colorado to California, he kept it in his trunk for over a month. Turns out he was sitting on a fortune.

He finally got around to looking into the coin took it to a coin shop, where eh sold it to the store's owner. That's when the shop owner found out the coin was actually a never-before-seen 1974-D aluminum penny from the Denver Mint. Then the shop owner did something very cool. He decided to let the original owner know he hadn't paid nearly enough for what the coin was actually worth and gave it back 

The coin will be auctioned in Chicago this April. It could be worth up to $2 million.

The original owner and the coin shop owner have agreed to split the jackpot and on top of that, will donate up to $100,000 to local homeless programs.

This Guy Got Burried On His Harley 

An Ohio man who died of lung cancer last week had his wish fulfilled of being buried while sitting on his Harley Davidson motorcycle

The man could be seen on the bike through a Plexiglass coffin wearing his leather jacket, gloves and helmet.

The man bought three burial plots next to his wife so the coffin would fit. The embalmers used a metal back brace and straps to make sure he would stay upright on his bike. 

His sons reinforced the coffin with wood and metal to support the weight.

21 Ways To Please A Woman..   

1.Text her back--She thinks about this way more than (most of) you do. 

2. Offer to hold their stuff if it's heavy--Just offer.

3. Be understanding if we're workaholics--Don Draper's got nothing on us.

4. Don't expect us to diet--Being skinnier is not that high on our priority list. 

5. Don't expect us to be gym fiends--Aside from your average stress-busting yoga - but it's more for the head, not the body. If we want abs, we'll get them. But not for you.

6. Be cool with the fact that we make more money than you--We can go Dutch! 

7. For the love of God, don't expect us to like The Hobbit--IT'S SO BORING.

8. Bring us cookies when we had a crappy day at work.--Storebought or from scratch, either way.

9. Let us watch our Bravo in peace--Better yet, go do something else while we watch. Tease me all you want, but my addiction to Real Housewives of New Jersey doesn't mean I'm not still smarter than you. You know it, I know it.

10. Just say what you are feeling instead of being weird--Use your words like a big boy. 

11. Do the dishes--We can take turns.

12. Remember our friends' names, at least the important ones--No, that's not Jessica, that's AMANDA.

13. Be a good cook--There's almost nothing hotter. Especially to a girl who can't cook.

14. Generally do housework when you know it's your turn--It's not hard to Swiffer the floor. 

15. Love our pet, even if you secretly hate our pet--Especially if it's a cat.

16. If you're considering whether you need to ask permission to do something (like hang out with an ex), ask permission--She should be cool with it, but it shows that you're considerate of her feelings.

17. Read books--Not just nutritional labels and Men's Health while you're on the treadmill. 

18. Don't crash girls nights--No men allowed.

19. Clean up after yourself--Don't leave your underwear on the bathroom floor if you can help it. :)

20. Do the laundry--Fresh warm laundry is a turn-on.

21. Make plans so we don't have to--It's not that hard to figure out a reason to get up and leave the house!
