This guy takes four long years to visit 26 countries just to film a lip sync proposal video for his girlfriend.
The college student knew when he met his girlfriend he would marry her so he spent the next four years taking advantage of the travel opportunities he had through school to record a video.
The lip sync is appropriately set to “I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles)” and he played it for her after the they graduated from college and made it part of his proposal – she of course said yes.
As the saying goes…don’t get mad, get even. Or in this case, turn your anger into a positive and do some good in the world. Check out the story here.

There’s a debate on whether or not workingwomen deserve to receive paid “menstrual leave” to deal with their monthly pains and discomfort.
The editor of a feminist journal said, “Just by asking the question, ‘Should women get paid menstruation leave?’ biases the listener into saying, ‘Oh, of course not,’ because you’re talking about special treatment.”
She added, “But if you were to say, should men get paid time off if they were kicked in the testicles, yes, like if you have a medical problem, you should get to take time off.”
The woman also explained that the issue is really about workers’ rights, because studies show that workers with unlimited sick days actually take fewer sick days, plus they’re happier and more productive.
