Marvel's surprise hit Guardians of the Galaxy keeps on surprising over a year after it's release. The father of a young boy who suffers dyspraxia posted this on director, James Gunn's Facebook:

Hi James…This is in response to your recent post about Guardians being released a year ago and the effect it has had on my son. My son is four years old and has a condition known as dyspraxia, which not only interferes with motor skills but speech as well. When Guardians came out Sawyer could only say about three words and would communicate to his mother and I by other means. When he saw Groot, something clicked inside him and he connected with him on a level I haven’t seen. He began to mimic him and he would use the word “Bah” for a lot, but after he saw the film, he would change the tone in which he said it to convey a different meaning. He would also start saying Groot for many things as well. Since that, he was finally able to go to a speech class and it has helped amazingly. I just wanted to thank you though, for a script and movie that was written so well that a four year old, three at that time, could connect with someone who had the same language barrier.

Did you miss the GOP debate last week? Would you rather watch children reenact it? Well, Funny or Die has you covered.

Who knows where they found these disgustingly adorable children with their little faces acting so expressively perfect, but they really put their tiny hearts into inhabiting the full spirit of the Republican primary debate.

Look at Donald Trump here:



If the kid thing isn't doing it for you, but you still want to experience the debate other than watch it, Patton Oswalt live-tweeted it for you.

If that's still not your thing, just watch Donald Trump dance for a bit.

Six year old Avery Huffman was recently diagnosed with an inoperable, cancerous brain tumor, but that won't stop her from being a princess! Kristen Bell, voice actress of Anna in Frozen, left a message for Avery letting her know that in light of her bravery, Avery will be crowned an honorary Princess of Arendelle. 

No, I'm not crying! Someone is cutting onions in here.



You can learn about Avery's story here, and if you're able, make a donation in her honor here.

Realizing that his angst ridden readers from the mid to late 1990s have settled in nicely to Jack's slim legged corduroys, Chuck Palahniuk wants to expose their progenies to probably the only book he has written.

It's filled with love, rainbows and fights.
