News broke after we uploaded this week's video that beloved Minecraft YouTuber Technoblade has died of cancer at the age of 23. He will be featured in next week's video.
YOU WOKE IT YOU WILL BROKE IT.
Alexander Jefferson Thank you for your service. You can rest now..
Brig Owens was drafted by my beloved Dallas Cowboys and was one of the players that got away. The Cowboys simply had so much talent they could not keep everyone, and he came back to bite them a few times, the biggest on a brutal MNF game when Roger Staubach was injured and came out for a few plays, Craig Morton came in and in a 3-3 tie throw a pick returned for a TD and that player was Owens. The game is known for Cowboys Walt Garrison being stopped at the one yd line by Kenny Houston. A legendary Cowboys-Redskins game, the BEST rivalry in football.
A lot of former great or one time Cowboys have died this year.
R.I.P Officer Jefferson..
Alex Jones Was Right!
May all these beautiful souls RIP💔😪🙏✝️ and thank you all for the contributions you made in the world.
Leave the F** dead alone!
My mother, Patricia Eastham died June 28th. Born October 2, 1939!
It's ok to say Washington Redskins. Don't be scared!After all, that's what their name was.
RIP JONATHON AND HUNTER COCO.
They were volunteer firefighters in Maxwell to who were killed while returning from a fire vent when they were hit by another vehicle that ejected them from the brunch truck they were riding in.
They were step brothers. Jonathon was 25 and Hunter was 21…
Not sure why they didn’t get half staff flags…
Rest in peace 🎈

No Technoblade??? (1999-2022)
Mary Mara died from drowning, that was a shock.
Thank you, Mr. Jefferson. I wish I’d had an opportunity to thank you personally for your service, but more importantly, for your strength of character in overcoming the obstacles that many blacks endured while fighting for our county and world freedom!
All thanks to Dr Abiola for curing my herpes virus with him herbal medicine, i do not have much to say but with all my life i will forever be grateful to him and God Almighty for using Dr Abiola to reach me when i thought it was all over, today i am happy with my life again after the medical doctor have confirmed my HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS for 14 is gone.

Sonny Barger should have been executed for ALL of his vile brutal criminal activities he was directly responsible for, but nope got away with forming on of the most disgusting horrific violent gangs in modern history. Gee, I wonder why…..

The one that hits me the most is WWII,,, it was 30 years ago when I was a kid, now is almost 80 years ago… also grew up in the cold war,,, that was some serious sht back then…. seems just as fckd now, or actually worse…
My dear, Margaret Keane, is now asleep.

Young and beautiful she will be.
