Our 16-year-old selves did a lot of things that would make our now-adult selves cringe. (Bad haircut? Inappropriate outfit? Check and check.) But on a more serious note, past behaviors like tanning and skipping the sunscreen could have serious consequences on your health today. Watch the touching and informative video below to see what other people would tell their 16-year-old selves about skin cancer and how it has changed their lives. We can’t turn back time, but perhaps this PSA, put together by the David Cornfield Melanoma Fund, would encourage more people to take care of their skin and help prevent future cases of melanoma.

Well, this dog’s Sunday activity makes our weekends look lazy. Dozer, a 3-year-old goldendoodle from Maryland ran from his home on May 15 and decided to join the Maryland Half-Marathon. He is reported to have snuck in at mile five and was seen at various points of the race by several runners. Here’s a video of him crossing the finish line at 2 hours and 14 minutes:
When race organizers heard about this pooch’s feat, they awarded him a medal. Now he even has his own runner’s page at the Maryland Half Marathon website where fans can donate funding for the University of Maryland Greenbaum Cancer Center. He’s raised more than $17,000 to date. Good job, Dozer!

Air New Zealand looks like a fun time.
In an effort to get passengers to put down the SkyMall catalog and pay attention to the in-case-of-emergency instructions, Air New Zealand tapped fitness icon Richard Simmons to star in their awesomely retro new “Fit to Fly” in-flight safety video. The results? Fabulous. My favorite moments:
- “Stretch and slide! Yeah, you’re a giraffe!”
- Yellow shirt guy at the 1:58 mark.
- The Pony!
- THE OUTFITS.
