Sometimes, just sometimes, people do things that are so spectacular they make life worth living. It’s true that very often these glorious strangers didn’t intend to do something so blatantly awesome (or awful), but it doesn’t matter what the intent was. These 25 people from 2013 have made my life better, whether they meant to or not.

5. The guy who got caught picking his nose.
6. These parents who just couldn’t get a nice family photo.
7. The man that stumbled into this awesome coincidence.
