Being F■■■ing Awesome Spreads Happiness

MIAMI (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Doing a f■■■ing awesome thing for mankind finally gets people the brownie points they deserve.

Good deeds never go unrecognized thanks to BeFuckingAwesome.com, where folks post the kind things they do for the world and other users give them points depending on the level of awesomeness.

For example, donating blood earned one user 150 points, while staying in their pajamas all day only garnered another user 30 points.

Another guy got 17 points for leaving the toilet seat up while peeing.

Creator Evan Fry says that being awarded points for helping fellow man gives people incentive to go out and do good even in a small way, just so they have something to post on the website.

He explains, “Getting points starts to affect behavior. People go out and look for opportunities to do something nice. The website gives people the option to interact based on the good they’ve done.”
