Misinformation will always permeate the Internet; It’s simply unavoidable. The same can be said about Rick Astley videos. The difference between the two is that sharing (and further spreading) Rick Astley videos is widely regarded as a good thing. Here is a running list of Coronavirus fake news that are all 100% replaceable with Rick Astely videos, of which you can share as many times as you like.

Free, Simple Meditations
We’re sure everyone has their full share of stress right now. One thing we like to do is take a few minutes each day to reset and remind ourselves that life is still good. A super quick and easy way to go about this is by implementing these 5 minute meditations. Give it a shot! Worst case scenario is if you’ll feel exactly the same and you can go back to watching Penguin Cam! Or Rick Astley videos.
I don’t think you’re ready…for this Jelly Cam. Granted, this live feed won’t have as much DRAMA as the Penguin Cam or Kitten Cam we recently shared with you, but it is deserving nonetheless. This is the perfect feed to put up on your side monitor to promote relaxation throughout the day. Sometimes we all can use a few minutes to just Jell out.
