Perhaps he should have gotten her the Happy Meal. A man who recently proposed to his girlfriend of two years at the McDonald's restaurant where they first met with a ring stuck in the bun of a Crispy Chicken Deluxe meal did not get the laugh he was expecting when she painfully turned down his proposal as a "joke."
The proposal, which was recorded and posted to YouTube by the rejected man under the username Joseph Ann on June 2, has already gone viral with more than half a million views as of Friday afternoon.
"I met my girlfriend 2 years ago in LA. I've never been good at planning in advance which is why we wound up ending our first date at this exact McDonalds. She joked for months about how 10 years down the road I would probably propose to her in a chicken nugget box so I thought she would love when I surprised her this way. She didn't love it like the way I thought she would. We agreed to wait longer until it's time to get engaged," the man wrote in the description of the video on YouTube. more >>

Atheist author and evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins said at a recent Skeptics Society Conference at Caltech, California, that although he's glad that the "nones," or religiously unaffiliated people in America, are rising, he fears that unbelievers are taking up worse beliefs, such as those of new-age author and physician Deepak Chopra.
"One of the problems is that the so-called 'nones' often give up religion for something even worse," Dawkins said in a video posted by Raw Story. "I mean, they take up Deepak Chopra or something like that."
Dawkins said it's "good news" that people are abandoning religion in America, but joked that nones sounds too much like "nuns," and so would like to see another term used for the group. more >>
