What You’re About To See Is All Completely Real. The Last Photo Says It All.

In the past 30 years, over four thousand firefighters have died on the job. Every day, these brave heroes risk their lives to save others. When there are fires, explosions and disasters, most people will flee and run away from the flame. Firefighters, however, run towards them. If that isn’t enough to earn your respect, these pictures will be.

Those who decide to be firefighters are special kinds of people.

They go through hours of rigorous training to do a job that is even more dangerous.

Not only do they save humans, but animals, too.

When disasters strike, firefighters are there to save us.

And most firefighters are volunteers.

Don’t take these heroes for granted.

Fighting fires is a dangerous and complex job. Not everyone can do it.

Most work for 50 hours a week. Some work in 24 hour shifts.

Firefighters deserve more praise than they receive. If you know one of these unsung heroes, take time to thank them. Share this article to honor all of the brave firefighters in our country; every time they are on the job, they are risking their lives for you.

Romney declared winner of Illinois primary

http://twitter.com/#!/scottwfoster/status/182272288341757953

Here is the full speech from Mitt Romney tonight after it was announced that he won the primary:

And here’s the speech from Rick Santorum as well:

Rick Santorum now speaking in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania; says this election is most important since 1860

— Jamie Dupree (@jamiedupree) March 21, 2012

Newt was supposed to be on Hannity at 9:30 et…has apparently been bumped for both Romney and Santorum speeches.

— Sarah Huisenga (@SarahHuisenga) March 21, 2012

Romney is not a teleprompter guy: Botched his big "Enough" line, and then another one, re Steve Jobs. "Wait, I missed that," Romney corrects

Romney is on track for a strikingly large win in Illinois, but 20 mins before he speaks the crowd is strikingly small http://t.co/mPK1EOt6

— Matt Viser (@mviser) March 21, 2012

Romney expected to speak at 8:15 pm. (9:15 pm EST).

— Ashley Parker (@AshleyRParker) March 21, 2012

Now the big question is what will #MittRomney's victory margin be. Romney campaign officials are hoping for a double-digit percentage pt win

— Steve Futterman (@sfutterman) March 21, 2012

With 3% reporting, Fox News calls Illinois for Romney, and his hotel ballroom (still filling up) starts cheering…

— Ashley Parker (@AshleyRParker) March 21, 2012

Here’s an excerpt from Fox News:

It’s too early to say how the candidates will split up the 54 delegates up for grabs on Tuesday, but Romney will certainly be able to pad his lead in the overall delegate race.

Very early returns show Romney leading with 54 percent in Illinois, followed by Santorum with 28 percent. Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul are battling for third place.

The candidates head next to Louisiana, where polling shows Santorum has the edge, but the state is not worth as many delegates as Illinois.

Tomorrow is my 42nd bday. And my parents' 43rd anniversary! A win in IL would be a great way to kick it off.

— Tagg Romney (@tromney) March 21, 2012

RT @charliepolitico Exits have the collar counties going for Romney 51%-31%

15 Insane Things People Have Found In Their Attics…Why Is Everything So Creepy?!

If you had to pick the creepiest part of your house, you’d probably end up with either the basement or the attic. These are the two areas in most homes where nightmares live. Usually, these fears are just figments of our imagination, but occasionally they turn out to be real.

While you’ve probably read about weird and creepy things being found in people’s basements, what about the attic? Prepare to have the pants scared off you by these chilling and bizarre attic discoveries…

1. This is what your favorite doll looks like after spending 20 years in the attic.

2. I don’t know what this is and I have no desire to find out…

3. When you forget where you put the Halloween decorations.

4. People find giant wasp hives in their attics more often than you might think.

5. Not everything found in the attic is terrifying. How about this old, rockin’ comic book?

6. It looks like your grandmother used to have a drug problem.

7. Nothing like finding some old Nazi memorabilia in your grandparents’ attic…

8. One guy found this insanely creepy vintage baby photo in his attic. No idea where it came from…

9. Sadly, attics can also be a final resting place for small animals like this unfortunate bird.

10. It might be a mannequin or a mummified corpse…either way, I don’t want to hang around long enough to find out.

11. An electrician found these firearms in one guy’s attic. He says he’d been living at the house since 2008. Talk about freaky.

12. When the creepy pictures you hid in the attic strike back…when you see it.

13. Why they didn’t throw out the world’s most disturbing puppet is beyond me.

14. Talk about a grave discovery…hopefully this wasn’t stolen.

15. CLOWNS! WHY IS IT ALWAYS CLOWNS!?!?!

Yep, as if I needed another reason to avoid going up to my parents’ attic. I’m honestly terrified about what I’m going to find up there.
