For example, this person thought they were getting a 6.5-foot tall teddy bear that was well proportioned, but apparently, what they received was one with 4-foot long legs, and something that appears to be straight from a nightmare.

MTG fans rejoice! Rudy of Alpha Investments and Vintage Magic's Daniel Chang both have chosen to invest, collect and trade Magic the Gathering cards instead of cryptocurrencies, stocks, or other commodities. Why? For one, the Alpha Black Lotus you see above at one time fetched $50,000, and back in 1993, they could be found in booster packs or starter decks that cost you under $10 each. The success of the initial edition prompted a reissue later in 1993 (Unlimited Edition), along with expansions to the game. Arabian Nights was released as the first expansion in December 1993. New expansions and revisions of the base game ("Core Sets") have since been released on a regular basis, amounting to four releases a year. Continue reading for more videos and information.

Kate McClure didn't expect to get stranded on the road while driving to Philadelphia last month, much less change someone else's life. After pulling over on the side of I-95, McClure, 27, was approached by a homeless man named Johnny. She was nervous at first, but Johnny told her to get back into her car and to lock the doors while he walked to get help. So, he went to a nearby gas station, used his last $20 fill a gas can and brought it back to fill her car up. Moved by the gesture, she promised to come back with something, and in addition to cash, snacks and Wawa gift cards, a GoFundMe was started online, where internet users have contributed over $350,000.
