People Reveal What It's Like To Be In A Coma

Falling into or being placed into a coma is scary stuff. Hovering between life and death isn't something that anyone would undergo out of choice, but it's still a fascinating concept for people to comprehend. Obviously one can never know what it's like unless they've experienced it themselves, but unfortunately plenty of people have been there. A Reddit thread asking people to describe their experiences of being in a coma has shed some light on the scary realities of being in such a vulnerable position. Here are some of the responses.

Man Tweets How He Saved Woman From Strangers

As we know all too well, the world can be a dangerous place, particularly for a woman walking alone at night in metropolitan areas. Although staying vigilant is key in trying to avoid getting into dangerous situations, sometimes you may need to depend on the help of a kind stranger to keep you safe in certain circumstances. This is exactly the position one woman in NYC found herself in February, who when walking home alone, realized she was being followed by three men. Understanding the potential danger she was in, she approached a stranger and asked him to pretend he knew her, and accompany her home  The stranger tweeted the whole encounter (below) which went viral and inspired many people to thank him, on behalf of women everywhere for helping this woman while she was in a vulnerable state. It doesn't take a lot to show some kindness and help someone in need, like this compassionate stranger shows.

Real Stories Of 'Hide And Seek' Going Horribly Wrong

Games are a great way to pass the time, especially during our current lockdown situation. They provide an opportunity for friends and families to bond, whether they're played in person, online or via video chat (unless it's Monopoly, which, for the sake of peace in the home, we wouldn't recommend during lockdown). But being in lockdown means that some games, such as hide and seek, are harder to play. After all, how many times can you hide in the same three spaces? Oh, how we took it for granted. As a throwback, an Ask/Reddit thread asking people to share stories of how their games of 'hide and seek' went horribly wrong, before coronavirus took over the world of course. It revealed how quickly games can go from a bit of innocent fun, to horribly wrong. Here are some of the most shocking stories.

Story Of A Man Sentenced To Life Without Parole For Stealing $9

The justice system has failed many, many unfortunate souls. Including Willie Simmons, who was sentenced to life without parole, in 1982, for stealing $9. 

Investigative journalist Beth Shelburne has brought Simmons' story into the spotlight when sharing this man's story via Twitter. Not only was Willie Simmons sentenced to life for something so ridiculous, but he has also been and still is currently imprisoned in one of the most notorious prisons in Alabama. 

Alabama Legislature passed something called the "Habitual Felony Offender Act" to crack down on repeat criminals, back in 1977. And journalist Shelburne is here to shed some light on just some of the injustice created by this "Habitual Felony Offender Act."
