Daily Afternoon Randomness (39 HQ Photos)

Yesterday, we posted a story about Taylor Morris, a Navy EOD who lost all his limbs in an explosion in Afghanistan. Taylor had always dreamed of having a log cabin on a lake so we asked the Chivers to pitch in the down payment on his dream home. I set the goal at $30,000.

The Chivers smashed the goal in less than an hour. We couldn’t have predicted in the opening minutes of the campaign that the Chivers were, in fact, just clearing their throats.

Many of the early comments read something like, ‘Screw the down payment. Let’s get him the whole cabin instead.’

The donations began to surge. I received an email from a family friend watching Taylor’s donation page. “John, the donations appear to be coming in faster since we hit our goal. How? This is insane!’

Not insane really, just how the Chivers have always rolled. Minutes ago, donations blasted past $200,000… $170,000 more than we asked for.

Taylor’s story is just beginning. The local and national media are now decsending upon the Morris family to help spread his inspirational story and I’ll keep you posted on the new developments. In the meantime, enjoy your weekend, you’ve earned it. Donate right here.

Happy Friday, Chivers

      niether…I really dont get it.

      • chucklesclown

        She's an attractive woman. That's pretty much all there is to get.

      • Tom

        Agreed. Overrated.

        • Everclear

          I have some bad news for you, Bryan and Tom…

          • Tom

            I'm not saying she's not hot, but there are hotter models out there that aren't getting the same hype she is.

            • Case

              Like Irina Shayk, the most beautiful woman in the world

              • lonin

                Pretty sure she was on the cover last year.

            • passwordistaco

              But can they dougie like Kate? Watch her dougie = believe the hype.

              • https://www.facebook.com/cavillea.diannea Cavillea Diannea

                she dances like a fucking idiot. i get its about the tits jiggling, and not the dancing, but…i personally think dancing in front of that creepy asshole terry richardson was not hot. i try not to think often.

        • Robert Paulson

          also agree.

    • Truth

      Moley moley moley.

    • BruceWayne

      Ms. Marvel very cool.

      • red


    • djp

      It seems to me that she has a playful attitude and strikes me as being a spitfire in the sack. Some women are prettier, I agree, but it seems likely that she would be fun to be around in general and be capable of some real inspired nookie. That's hot enough for me.

    #23 is there anything better??? Omg

        You see… playboy could become relevant again with just one photo shoot. Get Kate Upton in there and watch the sales go.

    #12 What kind of weird religion is this?

    • dred

      The best kind. An accepting one.

      • Jandro

        too bad there is no such thing πŸ™

        • Desi

          You must be an idiot.

          • Jandro

            I don't believe so. I used 'too' and 'there' correctly

        • 9843

          gee, how tolerant of you Jandro. you'd fit right in.

          • Jandro

            I dont want this disgusting straight people worshiping with me

            • Jandro

              those….THOSE – Desi, now im an idiot!!

      • thedude325

        Exactly as it was meant to be…but some (many) churches have turned ugly and self centered.

      • Tom

        The one actually listening to Jesus apparently

        • mickey

          What's a Jesus?

    • mark

      God accepting people … maybe evening loving how he made them ….what a concept

    • jjj

      Its a made up one. Pretty much like the other ones

      • Tehtuh

        yeah yeah, we get it, "dissing religion is cool now". *yawn*

        • mtpuckhead

          It's not "cool" it's just others opinion. Deal with it. Not everybody believes in god.

          • Jack_LeMac

            I think he's just talking about how it seems to be a trend to crap all over religion now; I'm personally not a religious man but seeing comments like these everywhere can get pretty stale

            • DoomsDayDub

              Pretty sure it's just that speaking out against religion is acceptable now. These thoughts are not new to the world, they were just forbidden to speak before.

        • Cantaloupe

          If you consider calling something "made-up" to be "dissing", then Christians have been dissing other religions since Christianity began. It's the default position when you start a religion "All other religions are made up; we totally got this shit directly from Allah"

    • Scary America

      I think things will be fine and dandy, as long as they don't teach and preach from the Bible.

      • Yep

        You people can bash Christianity all you want, but EVERYTHING will change for you the day that you encounter Christ's love for us. YOU, yes He died for you! A love that is willing to love the messy, messed up, and hurting people, AND homosexuals. Christianity is the only religion that is accepting of all and poses no threat to anyone. Anyone that has called themselves Christian in the past and killed others for the cause of it is twisting scripture and taking it out of context for their own cause. So yes, Jesus accepts all those mentioned in that sign. You all that bash it will understand on the day that you encounter His love for yourself. I hope that you do.

            just like your stereotype of christians. i think its funny you can hate on christians, but when others hate on say race then they are evil and ignorant. double standard anyone?

    • Chris

      Was I the only one who started clapping?

    • Thor

      Just another one…another church I won't be going to…as if I needed another reason.

    • Marty

      that is the true opinion of what the bible teaches. some christians are more concerned about their own opinions, and therefore paint Christianity with a bad brush. The bible says God love's everyone.

        No sir. Thank you.

      • ernest seemann

        I was talking to a few retired Navy Senior Chiefs I work with in the DoD and they agree this is a the VERY least we can do. I see great things for you, I see where you can do for the wounded warrior cause something like Michael J Fox has done with Team Fox. You are my hero if nothing else for putting the medic's life over your own. Rest for now but once you get good with your gear and at tanned rested and ready I bet you will do great things.

      • http://www.facebook.com/lee.yates Lee Yates

        Are you kidding me? THANK YOU !!!! You are a hero among heroes. I only hope that what this Chive community has done will in some small way give you back all you have given to us. God Bless you and your family. I look forward to seeing pictures of your cabin……..

        Thank you so much for all you gave…..we can never repay YOU ….

    • DickFister

      I'm a man. I got a dick and everything. But this made me weep like a little girl. God bless this family and the entire Chive Nation. You're all fucking awesome.

      I think maybe we could find a contractor to actually build the cabin for them now πŸ˜› and maybe an awesome piece of land on some amazing lake somewhere….

      • Samhedi

        If they weren't so far away I'd be there with a truck full of tools to start building. Any chance they'd prefer to live in Oregon?

      True hero. Thanks brother

      I just gave some money too, I am A Canadian, but I am proud and honoured I could give a little bit to a man that gave so much. I wish that all the heroes and great men and women could be given what they gave to all of us!

    KCCO and have a good weekend!

    • gma

      So can I take your house, make it better and then sell it for profit?

      • Fluke

        What I was tryna say was…Keep Calm Carry On. Was the original term w/logo. The Chive replaced carry w/ chive…and used the exact same logo and colors. Why delete that admin? Just curious. Christ. Cant even bring shit up anymore.

        • John

          That's my bad actually, a few people spammed the first few comments with 'FIRST' which always chaps my ass and your comment accidentally got deleted while I was laughing maniacally shouting 'fuck you FIRSTs!!!' and deleting them with glee.

          The original came from the Barter Books in Northumberland (i think) if that helps.

          • Fluke

            Wow…A reply from the most high. I feel official now. I must go now and spend my money on your products.

            • OnOneWheel24

              How about you send that money to Taylor Morris instead?

              • Randy

                Surprised you can donate and be on one wheel at the same time bro

                • OnOneWheel24

                  So much negativity directed at someone based solely on a user name. Keep calm and chive on BRO

          Like Americans should be pissed every time one of our cultural contributions from pop culture (Hollywood/Music) gets reused/re-interpreted overseas.

            I'll tell you what, someone takes my shit and sells it for $40 a pop I'm suing the shit out of the mother truckers…..and John, that's more bs than saying my ex wife still looks good…your such a fucktard dude….how much did you donate to Taylor? Your just gonna take the credit as usual I'm sure.

            • matt

              and now you remind me why i try to avoid reading message boards… sigh.

            • The Fonz

              The original Keep Calm & Carry On posters were released into public domain after being lost since their creation some 70-80 years ago. Anybody can creat, market, and sell their own versions, that is why they are so vastly popular right now.

            • Jack_LeMac

              Yelling at a charitable man over the internet won't solve any of your personal issues, Curtis, and in the words of the good Sir William Murderface, "it won't make your weenie any bigger"

              • http://www.thechive.com SmokeyMorgan

                Amen. So cool that you used a Murderface quote. Rock on.

          I doubt the fire would kill them, they'd probably look scary as hell with melted flesh on a metal skeleton. Use lava instead.

    • blue_bronco

      He's a douche +1

    • mtdave

      I agree and wish these tools would stfu. Thumbs down for breaking the balls of a dude with a legit condition. Regardless how he looks (which is like a hippy lesbian) he has pain. I think he is from Vermont too, so wearing socks with sandals is ok.

      • ChodeLauncher

        What's his condition?

    • Scott

      My first and second responses to the caption "wtf, Tyler?" was, they know his name is Steven right? Who calls people by their last name anymore?

      • haeddre


    • FreddieMercury

      Yeah, but if he was having surgery and john and leo put some donation thing up and asked the "chivers" to "unite" you sheep would flock……

      baaaaaaaah! baaaaaaaaaaah!

        Didn't you die from aids?

      • HiLife

        Sad but true.

      • Jack_LeMac

        Yes because Steven Tyler, lead singer of Aerosmith, would need the help of the Chive to get foot surgery…

    • MA-Chiver

      Stephen Tyler wears what he wants…

      He has a house in Sunapee, NH on the lake. He and Joe Perry were always around town when I lived there. They never had a problem taking a picture with a fan, signing an autograph, or whatever. Not douchy at all. If they needed something at the hardware store, they went and got it themselves.
      Only person I have ever seen that put bullet hole stickers on his super car and didn't give a fuck…not one.
