Fawn Spotted Curled Up Next To Headstone Of Unknown Soldier

A heartwarming image has been shared on social media of a baby deer curled up next to the headstone of an unknown U.S. soldier in Georgia’s Andersonville National Cemetary.

In the picture, the fawn can be seen resting in front of a headstone that reads: ‘Unknown U.S. Soldier’ with the American flag next to it. 

The image was shared on the Andersonville National Historic Site with a caption that read:

“Park Maintenance Supervisor James Taylor spotted this young guest cosying up and giving special honour to an unknown soldier resting in Andersonville National Cemetery.

“Later in the day, several staff saw the doe come back for her young”.

One user commented that a fawn’s mother will leave their offspring in a safe place while they are feeding and will return once they have finished eating. 

Another commented:

“unknown except to God. And God sent a little angel to show his love for our fallen soldier”. 

With it being 2020, uplifting images and stories can be hard to find, so that is why we thought that this image and story was worthy of a share!

Bored Of Your Job? How About Becoming A Professional Fart Smeller? (No, Really)

You might be bored of working in the same job, doing the same thing over and over again. 

But you are probably staying put (for now) because you have yet to find a job that will really challenge you (and your senses). 

Well, here at Daily Dits, we like to spend our time browsing the internet and social media, to find you interesting ‘stuff’, so that you don’t have to.

And this includes taking the time to look for inspiring new job opportunities which you might have never previously considered.  

Earlier on today, we came across a job description that seemed to not only offer a ‘two days are never the same’ element but that also gives you the chance to use all of your senses. 

If you have got a particularly ‘good’ nose, then this could be the dream job that you have been looking for: a professional fart smeller.

When we researched the background behind this particular job, we found an article that had been published several years ago that confirmed that not only does the job exist, but that it pays well too. 

Although we could only find the need for a ‘professional fart smeller’ in China, we worked out that the salary would be the equivalent of around USD 70. Not bad, hey? 

Apparently, it would be best if you were aged between 18 and 45 years old. You also must be a non-smoker, have an ordinary sense of smell and not be a heavy drinker. 

A ‘botty burp’ can be a good indication as to the health of a person. If you have an incredibly lousy bum odour, then this could be a sign of an unhealthy digestive system. 

One resource that we found on the internet even suggests that smelling another persons ‘pop’ can be beneficial to the body! 

So next time you unleash some wind in front of your friends, family or colleagues, then just point out to them that you are doing them a favour.

Fire Service Posts Job Advert That Pays £190M Per Year

At a time when the private sector is battling with the effects of COVID, then the public sector can be seen as a good source of new jobs for anyone who finds themselves out of work. 

After all, we are always going to need the likes of the emergency services, the armed forces and the civil service, so why not look at a career in the public sector? 

There has always been an expectation that jobs in the public sector do not pay as well as the private sector. 

But when social media users saw a job that was posted by Shropshire Fire & Rescue Service for an ‘ICT Technician’ that pays a whopping £22,911 per hour, then I bet that even people who do not know what an ‘ICT Technician’ is ended up applying! 

Even some of the worlds top earners cannot muster up £22,911 per hour, which would be around £190,619,520 per year!

That is probably more than the actual budget of the respective fire service that posted the ad. 

Of course – much to the disappointment of potential candidates – there had been an error when the ad was posted onto social media with the salary offered being £22,911 per year as opposed to per hour. 

I don’t even think the world’s richest man, Jeff Bezos, earns £190,619,520 per year!

Can We All Just Agree Not To Wear ‘Masks’ Like This One?

Out of all of the different DIY face masks designs which we have seen being shared on social media, then this one is perhaps the most useless. 

A few weeks ago, we told you about a guy who had a gold mask made by his personal jeweller. 

You don’t need us to tell you that the 24-carat masterpiece offered pretty much zero protection to its affluent owner. 

But when we saw an image doing the rounds on social media which showed a fellow human wearing a pink mask that had been knitted with huge holes in it, then we were taken aback. 

Maybe the owner wants to keep her nose and mouth warm and is not really that bothered about tiny droplets of moisture entering her nose and mouth. 

But if she is looking for some sort of protection from the virus, then it is fair to say that this particular ‘mask’ will not afford her any protection whatsoever.  

It could also be the case that maybe her mum or nan has knitted it for her and she just felt compelled to wear it, take a picture and then remove it – which is the sort of thing I would do too. 

Either way, if you need a new mask, then it is perhaps best to steer well clear of this particular type of ‘design’. 

Man Creates His Own Ecosystem To Protect Himself From COVID

We might be used to see people walking around with paper masks covering their mouth (but not their noses), but I am reasonably sure that this will probably be the first time you have seen a male walking around with his own complete ecosystem? 

The image above is doing the rounds on social media, and it appears to show a male with his own portable greenhouse strapped to his shoulders.

I say ‘appears to show’ because some people are really good at photoshop, so you can never be too sure anymore.  

We can’t tell what sort of ‘herb’ has been grown in the mobile greenhouse, but it would not take much imagination when it comes to thinking of the different types of ‘green’ that could be grown in this ‘green house’…if you know what I mean. 

It would seem that the image has originated in Turkey, judging by the Twitter account that has shared it. 

A police officer appears to have walked past the chap and has just left him to it – and rightly so! 

We all know just how polluted and dirty our once-pristine air is. And plants are the only ones who can clean this dirty air for us. 

So it makes perfect sense to create your own little ecosystem that can fit nicely on your shoulders as you take a walk around your local town. 

You might have to be careful if you smoke though – which would be odd considering the purpose of the ‘ecosystems’ – as a discarded ciggy butt could result in your own personal ‘wild fire’.

WATCH | Older Brother Uses Treasure Hunt To Ask Younger Brother With Down Syndrome To Be His Best Man

At a time when there is so much hate and negativity floating around the planet, finding a genuinely ‘heart warming’ story can be quite hard. 

But, we think we have found one such spirit-lifting piece. 

The story and video revolves around the moment when a man asked his younger brother to be his best man at his wedding.

Will Claussen, 24, has an extremely close bond with his younger brother, Henry. 

22-year-old Henry has Down Syndrome, which is a genetic condition where the individual affected has an extra chromosome in their DNA. 

Will wanted to make the occasion an extra special one for his little brother. So he staged a ‘treasure hunt’ and hid a bottle under the sand that had a very special message in it. 

At first, when Henry found the bottle, he thought that it was a prank. But his brother urged him to open the bottle and read the message contained within it. 

As Henry unfurled the paper and saw the message, then he knew that what he had found was indeed something special. 

It was a note, written by his brother, asking Henry to be his best man. 

The heartwarming note said:

“Henry Joe, you are already the BEST bro, and my very BEST frand, so will you please say yes and be my BEST man?”

Of course, Henry said ‘yes’ and immediately jumped into his brother’s arms whilst saying ‘I love you’. 

The video, filmed by Will’s fiancee has been viewed millions of times.

Will, who is from Mankato, Minnesota, had been planning the unique message in a bottle since he proposed to his fiancee, AJ. He knew that he wanted to ask his brother in a way that he would never forget. 

Will said:

“I always knew that Henry was going to be my best man. We have been pretty much inseparable since he was born.

“I decided to use one of his favourite hobbies, metal detecting, as a way to ask him to be my best man”. 

Will mapped out the day so Henry would find the bottle with its unique message while out with his metal detector at the family’s log cabin by Ten-Mile lake in Hackensack, Northern Minnesota.

“Henry was beginning to worry he was going to get left out of the wedding party – he was so happy when he read the message” Will added.

When asked how he felt about the video going viral Will said it was “crazy” but he was glad that he and his brother had “spread some positivity and happiness”.

AJ and Will, who met at college, have been together for two-and-a-half years and plan to get married next summer.

At the end of the video, even the family dog seemed to want to get involved with the celebrations as she came running down the hill towards the happy duo. 

During these troubling and uncertain times, it is great to be able to share such a heart-warming story.

WATCH | Girl Rescued By Ocean-Going Ferry After Floating Out To Sea On A Unicorn

A young girl had a fortunate escape from an almost inevitable tragedy after she was spotted by an ocean-going ferry as she floated out to sea on an inflatable unicorn. 

The young girl, estimated to be around five-years-old, was spotted by the crew and passengers of the vessel around 1000 metres off the Greek coast. 

The young girl had been playing in the sea on a beach in Antirio when sea currents and the wind blew her offshore. 

A video posted on social media, filmed by one of the passengers on the ferry, shows the moment when the captain of the ferry and his crew pulled the girl out of the sea.

In the video (below), the crew can be seen to lower the ramp at the front of the large vessel before hauling the girl to safety.  

Captain Karneses said that he was navigating his usual route when he received a call from the coastguard asking if he or any of his crew had spotted a girl floating on a giant inflatable unicorn. 

He told Skai TV:

‘The child was flabbergasted. 

‘She was terrified, and that’s why she grabbed so firmly onto her inflatable swing ring.

The captain played down claims that he was a ‘hero’. He said:

‘I’m obligated to do it, not because of the nature of my work, but as a person. 

‘There is no need for someone to thank me. I did something that any one of us would do’.

Safety campaigners have long voiced their concerns regarding the use of inflatable toys on the sea. 

It only takes a moderate current and slight winds for an inflatable toy to be taken out to sea; often with tragic consequences.

Farmer Makes Epic ‘Thanks To Those Who Serve’ Mural In Field

99.9% of us are thankful to the men and women who serve in the military. Let’s face it; they are willing to lay down their own lives to protect our country. 

Let’s leave out the politicians who send them to political wars. We all know that most politicians would not have the guts to fight in the conflicts which they initiate. 

Instead, let’s talk about the men and women who, rather than sitting at home and playing video games all day, actually want to better themselves by joining a band of brothers and sisters who will always have you back. 

For many of us, we show our appreciation for our military in subtle ways. 

But for one farmer, he wanted to make it clear to everyone (who can see his field) that he is hugely grateful for the sacrifices which have been made by our military.

The incredibly detailed mural has the words: ‘thanks to those who serve’ amongst detailed ‘drawings’ of a fighter jet, a tank and some soldiers. 

The field is located in Dundee, Michigan and took the farmer days to complete. 

Over the years, we have seen similar artwork being made in fields, but the detail of this particular piece is incredible.

Offenders Who Are On A Tag Try To ‘Bling’ Their Devices

If you have ever spotted someone walking around your local high street with what looks like a tracking device strapped to their ankle, then it is probably because they have fallen foul of the law and now they are indeed being tracked. 

Putting someone on a ‘tag’ can be used as a way of enforcing various punishments such as curfews etc. 

The tag is waterproof and must be worn at all times. If you try to remove it, then you commit a separate offence which can be added to whatever crimes you have been convicted of. 

The large bulky devices can often easily be spotted – especially during the summer months when the wearing of shorts becomes the norm. 

For fashion-conscious people, then, if strapped to your ankle, these devices really can cramp your style. 

But one image that we spotted being shared on social media earlier today seems to suggest that some individuals who have been placed on a tag are trying to figure out ways of making the devices look more fashionable. 

And it would seem that one way of doing this is to put a YSL ‘bag’ over the device, thus giving the impression that the person who has been tagged is merely wearing an ‘ankle’ bag’ rather than a 24/7 GPS tracking device. 

If you do happen to have a tag, then, unfortunately, these little designer bags are not currently on sale in any major stores. 

This specimen seems to be more like a one-off. 

But knowing how enterprising humanity is, then it won’t be long before someone appears online selling these little ‘ankle bags’. 

Although, you will probably have to save up for quite a few months before you can afford one.

Motorcyclist Spotted Riding With Carved Pumpkin For A Helmet

When you decide to enter the two-wheeled-world of motorcycling then, other than the bike itself, your ‘lid’ is going to be the next most expensive bit of kit. 

For a decent one, you are looking at having to spend about a quarter of your monthly salary. 

But it is well worth the investment. Let’s face it; you only get one head, so it is within your best interest to look after it. 

But what if you do not have the money for a helmet, but you still want to go out and enjoy the freedom that comes with riding on two wheels? 

Well, this guy thinks he has found the answer in the form of a helmet made out of a pumpkin. 

Whilst the pumpkin-helmet won’t give you any protection when it comes to your head, you will still benefit from being able to outstare any motorist who dares to try and cut you up. 

The other issue you will have will be the flies and other airborne ‘things’ that will want to find your eyeball as your cruise through the streets. 

I think I will stick to my conventional lid even though I have had the same one for the last ten years, and it is started to ‘kick up’ a bit.
