You know what’s awesome? Pure, unadulterated joy. This awesome video shows Ria Van den Brand from the Netherlands, 78 years young, taking her very first ride on a roller coaster and loving every second of it. Her delight is so palpable and contagious that our cheeks hurt from smiling so much.

We may have a new cutest picture on the internet. This picture of a mini-pig, by KittenBabySitter, reveals its layers of cuteness as you look at it. One, it’s a sleeping miniature pig with a pink snout. Cute! Wearing a sweater vest! Cuter! Then, you notice that it’s wearing tiny gripper socks and your head explodes like a cute bomb went off in your skull. Cute-boom!
In fact, according to this happy customer, his corgi specifically asked him for a unicorn horn after hearing about them at the park. So the word is out on the street: Inflatable Unicorn Horns for everyone!

We love street art that makes creative use of the urban landscape and, of course, the artists responsible for it. This awesome piece was created by Louis Gan in Penang, Malaysia. Although some would probably give it a go, real kids might have a hard time getting a lot of enjoyment out of swings set up right in front of a wall. But these two painted children seem to be having a delightful time.
We also love the name of the street this is on: Step By Step Lane.

Dreams of Flying is an awesome ongoing project begun in 2002 by German photographer Jan Von Holleben. Each imaginative photo depicts a different nostalgic childhood dream and practically radiates youthful delight.
"Jan brings the influences of his parents – a cinematographer and child therapist – to his work. His focus on the visual representation of childhood, ‘Child-History’ and concepts of ‘Playing’, come from his teacher training coursework: he combines these theories with his personal experience and childhood memories. Inspired by classic childhood books as well as modern superheroes, he has produced ‘Dreams of Flying’ since 2002 with children from his local neighbourhood in Southwest Germany – ongoing!"
Looking at these photos, it’s clear that Jan is having as much fun working on this project as the children in his photographs.
According to bayanjargal.com, “Bayanjargal" is Mongolian for "abundant in happiness" which seems to describe this photo perfectly. We aren’t sure what happened to cause this delightful scene, but it’s pretty fun to try and guess and we can’t stop smiling every time we look at it.
Unfortunately we haven’t been able to figure out who is responsible for taking this awesome photo. If you know, please contact us so we can provide proper credit.
Wil Wheaton shows us the face of the happy gamer. He says, ”It captures everything I love about playing D&D with my friends.”
In fact, Wil loves them so much he has a whole show about them. You can watch TableTop on Geek and Sundry. You’re sure to discover amazing new games and catch a little of Wil’s awesome enthusiasm for them.
If you aren’t familiar with the fun of tabletop role-playing games, Wil’s contagious smile provides a taste and might even tempt you to try gaming yourself.
