Chocolate is a remarkably effective emotional panacea that has proven to offer a host of physical benefits, too. It can reduce stress, provide relief from a cough, prevent diabetes and reduce atrial fibrillation, a fatal heart condition.

But Ethan Millard and Alex Kirry are here to tell you about a disturbing trend with people actually snorting chocolate.  Coco Loko is used by idiots who think that they can get high.  Alex and Ethan are convinced that it was just a ploy to get ratings and now more people will snort the chocolate just to try it because it was on the news.  

A heart-warming story of two sisters preparing for a wedding in the fall and the heartwarming story of their proposal is unlike anything you’ve ever heard before.

Will Seaton, 25, proposed to his girlfriend of six years, Ashley Schaus, 23, but also popped a question to Schaus’ younger sister Hannah, who has Down syndrome. 

When they first started dating, Seaton was told that, if they were to be together, she and her sister would be together for life so the commitment was to more than just her.  He did an awesome thing.

Oh thank heaven for July 11th. That means it's Free Slurpee Day at 7-Eleven.

Alex Kirry and Ethan Millard are disgusted by the free grab of Slurpees all day as sticky kids and hoarding Moms everywhere across our country pretend that something free is more important than getting anything done.  

So, how can you enjoy your freebie? All you have to do is walk into any 7-Eleven in the country and ask for your small Slurpee cup between 11am and 7pm ET. There's no purchase or coupon necessary. It's also while supplies last.  

And an awesome zenheadlines story involving Coldplay.  Lead singer Chris Martin was so in awe of a fan gliding toward him over the crowd in a wheelchair that he invited the man on stage to help the band sing a song.

29-year-old Rob was passed aloft and along by audience members at the Croke Park, Dublin gig, being spotted by Martin as he neared the stage.

The frontman introduced him to the crowd, with Rob whipping out a harmonica and playing a traditional song with help from Coldplay.

Ethan Millard and Alex Kirry are blown away as NASA has okayed one of its save-the-world-from-asteroids proposals to move to the preliminary design phase, on the way to a hoped-for launch early in the 2020s.

If it goes ahead, the DART – Double Asteroid Redirection Test – will start with what the space agency describes as “a non-threatening small asteroid”. That way, presumably, if it gets knocked the wrong way, it won't bring about some kind of metropolitan (or global) catastrophe.
