Gary Sinise will always be known as Lieutenant Dan from “Forrest Gump.”

However, he may forever be remembered as the Hollywood actor who did exceptional work on behalf of America’s veterans.

Sinise broke down in tears after celebrities and workaday folks thanked him for all he’s doing for our heroes.

People magazine reported that, in honor of the Feb. 12 release of Sinise’s new book “Grateful American,” a number of Hollywood stars and other people he has worked with over the years got together and made a video expressing their own feelings of gratitude for the selfless effort Sinise has made to better the lives of others.

A separate video captured the moment when Sinise was told to watch the brief video prepared in tribute for him, and he could only smile and say how “shocked” he was by it as he wiped away tears of joy.

The surprise video for Sinise featured a plethora of his fellow actors and actresses, a number of active-duty and retired military veterans, disabled veterans and veterans’ families he has assisted, not to mention firefighters and police officers, all of whom said “thank you” to Sinise in their own way.

How great was that?

Speaking of celebrities…

“Saturday Night Live” castmate Pete Davidson lost his father, a firefighter, on 9/11. Since then, Davidson has been to rehab for drugs and admitted to having mental health issues.

Pete had no problem whatsoever openly mocking Navy SEAL and GOP Congressional candidate (at the time) Dan Crenshaw’s war wounds.

Check out Crenshaw’s excellent response:

Reactions:

Here’s the full clip:

Davidson sent a harrowing tweet: “i really don’t want to be on this earth anymore. i’m doing my best to stay here for you but I actually don’t know how much longer I can last. all I ever tried to do was help people. just remember I told you so.”

Enter Congressman-elect (at the time) Crenshaw, who selflessly intervened:

Crenshaw: “It was pretty devastating. You know you don’t want to see somebody in that kind of position to the point where they’re actually putting out a cry for help on social media. That’s not a good place to be in.

Crenshaw: “Actually, I talked to him personally yesterday, and talked to him for a little bit about it. You know, we don’t go back very far, we’re not good friends, but I think he appreciated hearing from me…Everybody has a purpose in this world, God put you here for a reason, but it’s your job to find that purpose.

How great is that?

McAfee Dead in Prison After Repeatedly Declaring He Would Not Kill Himself

Social media users were quick to remind the world of McAfee’s own words.

John McAfee is a computing legend, having pioneered the way in which systems and networks protect themselves from viruses, malware, spyware, and all the other assorted evils of this internet age. But now he lies dead, having allegedly committed suicide in a Spanish prison cell. Antivirus software tycoon John McAfee died by an apparent suicide in a Spanish jail cell Wednesday evening — hours after reports surfaced that he would be extradited to face federal charges in the US, according to local media. The eccentric tech entrepreneur was arrested in October and was awaiting extradition when he was found dead, police sources told the newspaper El Pais. The newspaper reported McAfee was pulled from his cell in Barcelona and police are investigating the circumstances around his death. Authorities aren’t shying away from calling it a suicide already. “Everything points to suicide,” the newspaper reported, citing justice department officials in the country. A second Spanish newspaper, El Mundo, also reported McAfee had died by an apparent suicide in the jail. But here is where it gets strange:  McAfee has been utterly insistent and consistent about the fact that he would never, ever take his own life, explicitly telling his followers on social media that, should he ever be found dead of suicide, he was killed. https://twitter.com/officialmcafee/status/1316801215083225096?s=20 https://twitter.com/officialmcafee/status/1200864283766251521?s=20 https://twitter.com/truthcrumbs/status/1407788935628079113?s=20 The investigation is ongoing at this time.

Lab Finds Zero Fish DNA After Testing Subway’s Tuna Sandwich

You can “eat fresh” at Subway, but can you eat fish?

Published

For years we’ve told ourselves that there has to be a better way to do fast food.  Or, at the very least, a healthier way. And so new chains are constantly popping up, while the old staples adapt.  There are salads for sale as places like McDonald’s these days, which is something that kids who grew up in the 80’s might have had a hard time believing would ever occur. In the realm of healthy fast food, there is but one king:  The unbreakable Subway.  Not only did the brand survive having a pedophile as their spokesperson, but they currently operate more physical restaurants in the world than even the aforementioned burger purveyor. But an alarming new study has some wondering if, while they were “eating fresh” with a tuna sub, they were even eating fish. The New York Times published a report Sunday, which revealed that lab tests didn’t find “amplifiable tuna DNA” in Subway’s infamous tuna sandwich. NYT submitted “60 inches worth of Subway tuna sandwiches” from three separate Los Angeles locations for lab analysis in wake of the lawsuit filed earlier this year alleging the sandwich chain was serving customers “a mixture of various concoctions that do not constitute tuna.” The suit claims that independent lab tests showed the company meant to “imitate” tuna’s appearance by blending together these unknown ingredients. The study, commissioned by NYT, failed to not only identify tuna DNA, but the lab couldn’t even determine the origins of the fish in the provided sandwiches. “No amplifiable tuna DNA was present in the sample and so we obtained no amplification products from the DNA. Therefore, we cannot identify the species,” the results read. But it’s not all bad news: “There’s two conclusions. One, it’s so heavily processed that whatever we could pull out, we couldn’t make an…
