While Brangelina are screaming at each other about the kids and Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris are texting it out, actual stories of love are happening all around us—if we only care to look. Twitter user Amy Pennington gave us a glimpse at what true love means on Sunday when she shared a selfie her grandmother took while getting her hair done. No, the photo wasn’t taken in a fancy salon, but in the bathroom with the stylist she loves most: her husband.

In a scene right out of Prince’s “If I Was Your Girlfriend,” you can see Pennington’s grandpa squinting his eyes to make sure he puts every hair perfectly in place. He should know how she likes it, he’s seen his wife do her hair countless times over the years. But this time it was his job to handle beauty business because she recently had wrist surgery and couldn’t use a brush. So next time someone tweets about relationship goals, just hit ‘em back with shot because, as Prince would say, “Those are the things that bein’ in love’s about”


Some beauty pageants, like the Miss America competition, have done away with the swimsuit portions of the competitions, thus dipping their toes in the 21st century. Other aspects of beauty pageants remain stuck in the 1950s, and we're not even talking about the whole "judging women mostly on their looks" thing. One beauty pageant winner was disqualified for being a mom, as if you can't be beautiful after you've had a kid. Now she's trying to get the Miss World competition to update their rules.

Veronika Didusenko won the Miss Ukraine pageant in 2018. After four days, she was disqualified because pageant officials found out she was a mom to 5-year-old son Alex, and had been married. Didusenko said she had been aware of Miss World's rule barring mother from competing, but was encouraged to compete anyways by pageant organizers.

One mystery in our universe is a step closer to being solved. NASA's Parker Solar Probe launched last year to help scientists understand the sun. Now, it has returned its first findings. Four papers were published in the journal Nature detailing the findings of Parker's first two flybys. It's one small step for a solar probe, one giant leap for mankind.

It is astounding that we've advanced to the point where we've managed to build a probe capable of flying within 15 million miles from the surface of the sun, but here we are. Parker can withstand temperatures of up to 2,500 degrees Fahrenheit and travels at 430,000 miles per hour. It's the fastest human-made vehicle, and no other human-made object has been so close to the sun.

Since the mid '90s the phrase "God Forgives, Brothers Don't" has been part of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point's football team's lexicon.

Over the past few years, the team has taken the field flying a black skull-and-crossbones flag with an acronym for the phrase, "GFBD" on the skull's upper lip. Supporters of the team also use it on social media as #GFBD.
