I have been an avid fan of the YouTube channel called "The Angry Grandpa Show" for about seven almost eight years now. For those of you who do not know what "The Angry Grandpa Show" is it is basically made up of videos portraying the lives of the Green family and the main focus of the YouTube channel is Angry Grandpa, also known as Charles Green.

It was originally created by Angry Grandpa's son, Michael Green, and the channel consists of pranks that the family plays on each other along with some videos that allow us a personal look into their lives at some pivotal points in their lives. Back when I first started watching "The Angry Grandpa Show" I was in a really dark place.

I was living with my stepfather at the time and was being subjected to heinous acts of abuse. My escape was to watch "The Angry Grandpa Show" on my Kindle Fire. I kid you not, watching his videos was not only the highlight of my day but, and this may sound somewhat extreme, but I genuinely do attribute those videos to having saved my life.

At some of my darkest moments, "The Angry Grandpa" was the only positive thing in my life. If I hadn't had that to look forward to, I don't know what else I would have turned to. I could always depend on Angry Grandpa and Michael to put a smile on my face and make me laugh until I couldn't breathe. When everything else in my life was falling apart and turning to shit, I could depend on them to pick me back up and make me realize that there really is a light at the end of the tunnel. It may have taken me awhile to finally get there but I now know that there definitely was one.

Right now Angry Grandpa has been really struggling with his health and when I first found that out I felt my stomach hit the floor. Do you mean to tell me that the man who I have watched almost every day for almost eight years could potentially die and be taken from this world? If something happens to Angry Grandpa, I would feel as though such a massive part of me was just ripped out of my chest.

I know this may sound silly to some of you, but since I have been watching them for so long I have started to feel as though I am a part of their family too. They have shared so much with all their fans, including me, and it has meant the world to me. If you haven't already watched their videos you really should. Their channel is not for everyone but I highly recommend it and needless to say, it has had an incredible impact on my life that I will never forget. Thank you, Angry Grandpa.

"I don't know about you but I'm feelin' 22," I have waited 6 long years to sing that and actually be 22! Now 22 doesn't seem like a big deal to people because you can't do anything that you couldn't do before and you're still super young. But I'm determined to make my 22nd year a year filled with new adventures and new experiences. So here's to 22.

1. Go sky diving.

What's crazier than jumping out of a plane? (Although I'll probably try indoor skydiving first.)

2. Go cliff jumping/diving.

I must be the only Rhode Islander who hasn't gone to Jamestown and jumped off a cliff.

3. Ride in a hor air balloon.

Up, up and away.

4. Try out skiing.

Cash me in the next Olympics, how bout dat.

5. Try out snow boarding.

Shawn White, I'm coming for you.

6. Go bungee jumping.

Because at least this time I'll be attached to something.

7. Go to Portugal.

I mean I'm Portuguese so I have to go at some point, right?

8. Go to Cape Verde.

Once again, I'm Cape Verdean so I have to go.

9. Vist one of the seven wonders of the world.

I mean hey, Egypt's on, my bucket list.

10. Try out surfing.

It's only natural that somebody from the Ocean State knows how to surf.

11. Learn a new langauge.

Because my little bit of Portuguese, Spanish and Latin isn't cutting it anymore.

12. Travel to a state that I've never been to before.

Fun fact: I've only been to 17 of the 50 states.

13. Go paddle boarding.

Pretty boring but I've never done it.

14. Go scuba diving.

I'm from the Ocean State so I guess I should see the ocean up close and personal.

15. Learn how to line dance.

There's actually a barn in my state that does line dancing, so this one will definitely get crossed off.

16. Go kayaking.

All this water around me and I haven't done a lot of the water activites.

17. Stay the night in a haunted hotel room.

I bet if I got my friends to come with me, it would be like the Suite Life of Zach and Cody episode, minus the ghost coming out of the wall but you never know.

18. Get my palms read.

Because who doesn't want to know their future.

19. Go to a medium.

Like a medium that can communicate with people that have died.

20. Take a helicopter ride.

Air plane: check Helicopter:....

21. Sleep under the stars.

Because sleeping in a tent is more like glamping than camping

22. Just to try new things in my everyday life.

Whether it's trying a new restaurant, getting something different at my usual restaurants, changing my usual style, going on the scary rides at amusement parks, and bringing things I used to do back into my life now.

7 Very Plausible Ways The World Might End In The Near Future

The world might have hundreds of ending, but only some of them can be predicted with current events and statistics.

At some point, we've all wondered how the world would end. With all the reports of strange events and sightings, the doom day may very well be tomorrow, next year, or it might take hundreds of years. Here are five of the most possible ways of how the world might end.


1. Alien invasion

The idea of the existence of aliens has been around for many years now. From sightings of UFOs to movies made on them, the idea is pretty popular. With water traces being found on Mars, the possibility of extraterrestrial creatures is heightened. Who's to say they won't come for us to take over our resources?

2. Flooding

Global warming is an increasing problem in the world. It's creating various extremities such as abnormalities in the weather. The warming is also melting the ice at the poles and low-lying areas. This ice is combing with the oceans to increase the water levels. If the global warming isn't stopped, all the ice will melt completely and the water from the oceans will flood many countries around the world.

3. World War III


The idea of another World War is not completely impossible considering current events around the world. Between the fight for resources, trade wars, rivalries and corruption, war is definitely a possibility. In the case of WWIII, we're all doomed for the nuclear weapons that are sure to be unleashed will wipe out countries.

4. Famines

With the population around the world increasing drastically every year, there is sure to be a food shortage in the future. With the limited water supply in many countries, farmers will have a tough time growing and harvesting crops, which will eventually cause massive famines. Famines in the past had caused many deaths and this time, due to the large population, many more people will die from hunger.

5. Diseases


Diseases, such as pneumonia and ebola, infected and killed millions of people in the past. These outbreaks will worsen and kill more people in the future due to the rapid pace it will spread by contact because of the population increase. Another deadly disease that can end the human race are skin cancers and disorders that will be caused due to the ruptures in the ozone layer. The ozone layer is reported to have holes about many countries. This causes the unfiltered UV rays from the sun to directly hit and affect humans.

6. Robots taking over the world

Since the introduction of robots, many have sided with them while others believed they were evil and will take over the world. Advancements in robot technology have given them the ability to move and even talk. Who knows, maybe robots will eventually want to take over us and rule the world in the future?


7. Death of the Sun

All of us know that the Sun will eventually die. It might take millions of years but it will run of its energy and explode, impacting all the planets near it. If the Sun dies out, life on Earth will not sustain for long. The Sun's energy will be so great when it dies, that it is quite possible that the Earth will also be seriously impacted.
