Kids Who Totally Stole The Show On Picture Day

Most kids don’t look forward to school picture days, the pictures are taken for their parent’s sake after all, but those wonderful kids who look forward to the experience are destined to grow up to be superstars:

They have the look, the attitude, and after these photo sessions their respective schools decided to shut down picture day, because they knew it would get no better than this:

However, not all kid pics are taken at school, parents love to take their kids in to the studio for some really special photo sessions:

After all, karate masters and roller dancing superstars aren't allowed to do their thing on school grounds, and when parents let their superstar kids shine after school the photographic memories are priceless!:

Edvard Munch's The Scream Takes the Ice Bucket Challenge

At one shocking moment, the Norwegian painter Edvard Munch suddenly felt the icy existential horror of the human experience. Then he wrote:

I was walking along the road with two friends
The Sun was setting – the Sky turned blood-red.
And I felt a wave of Sadness – I paused
tired to Death – Above the blue-black
Fjord and City Blood and Flaming tongues hovered
My friends walked on – I stayed
behind – quaking with Angst – I
felt the great Scream in Nature
So I challenge the Mona Lisa and Whistler’s Mother

"We Own The Future" Shepard Fairey Mural Appears in Manhattan

Image Via

It has been amazing to witness the leaps and bounds street art has come over the course of the last 20 years. What started as something that was shunned and misunderstood has completely evolved into a respetable and appreciated art style (by most), with more and more street artists reachng superstar status. One of those street artists is Shepard Fairey, who most know best from his Obama, two-toned HOPE poster, though he has been doing this for most of his life.

A recent new piece sprung up on the Lower East Side of Manhatten that was created by Shep. It bodly states: We Own The Future, and seems to harken back to his OBEY days (old schoolers will understand that his Obey pieces are what initially made him known).

In my opinion, all that does is make the city more beautiful. It adds splashes of color and ecourages free thought. What is better than that?

Did I Get Drunk and Get A Ph.D?

He's an incredible scientist when he's drunk. Otherwise he's a simpleton.

You just might be able to convince a friend/prank victim of this if you repeat the process a few times.

A Quick Bite to Eat

Aerial drones can deliver food to your doorstep. But nature was already working on this design concept long before humans conceived of it.

Dinner Party Time, Puppy!


(Photo: unknown)

Here is a perfect ad placement in what I would guess is the Gazette-Mail, a newspaper in Charleston, West Virginia. A recent Associated Press story informs us that dog meat has fallen out of fashion in South Korea. Eating dogs has been a tradition in that land dating back at least several centuries. But younger people increasingly tend to see dogs as pets.

A Robin Williams Time-Lapse Portrait That Will Move you To Tears

I think in many ways, a lot of us were affected by Robin William's suicide. The man just hid those tears and fears so well, none of us knew he has struggling and hurting. That, in turn, made the news even more shocking. Seems YouTube artist Heather Rooney took some time to sit down and do a rather breathtaking and photo-realistic portrait of the sad star, and she captured the whole thing on time lapse so we can see it slowly breathe to life. In the wake of the news, there is something rather haunting about this. But you cannot deny the girl has some real talent.

(YouTube Link)

Anytime someone can do a photo realistic piece of art it always blows my mind, but the subject here is what makes it so poignant. It is like we watch him come to life on the paper, only to be reminded that we will never again see that manic, brilliant performer shining. It's odd, but by the end of the video, you have a tear in your eye.

A Mustache Mustache

I mustache you a question: how did this happen? Well, redditor RyanHasWaffleNipples explains:

My buddy jokingly decided to get a henna tattoo of a mustache while at the beach. The foreign worker didn't understand what he was saying, so she asked him to write down what he wanted. This was the result.

The labelling is accurate.

Guangxi Province, on China’s border with Vietnam, contains this natural wonder known as Moon Hill. The mountain is called that because the hole that goes straight through it is shaped like the moon.

Moon Hill is about 1,200 feet high. It's a popular tourist destination that offers a unique and fantastic view of the mountains on either side.

The Penalty for Public Urination

No public urination! The rule is clear, but this addition to the standard sign in the Czech Republic spells out the consequences clearly. A fine can be paid and forgotten, but YouTube is forever.

And this is the same country that has a public fountain featuring a pissing contest between two statues.

Dear Sandwich Thief

When an office is under attack by a nefarious sandwich thief, one employee dares to step up and write the passive-aggressive note that started it all:

The employee clearly thought this appeal to the thief's sense of maturity and dignity would end the sandwich stealing madness, but the thief was not so easily deterred:

Soon a war of notes was underway, a battle of wits with the very life of a Turkey and Swiss with Mayo on Rye hanging in the balance.

The thief demanded a ransom, but the man wasn't about to give in to the demands of a deli style terrorist:

Their threat to involve HR met with little concern, as the thief upped the ante by including photos of the kidnapped, and totally innocent, sandwich with his next note:

Is this sandwich mystery exposed by More FM real, or the product of bored office workers looking for something to do on their break?

Where does this tangled web of Turkey and Swiss and thievery go from here? Does HR ever get involved, or were those the empty threats of a grieving, and hungry, victim?

Discover the stunning conclusion to this tale of sandwich thievery here!

Disgraceful Discrimination at a Community College

But not goats. The college's eLearning page is quite clear about that.

A Completely Out-Of-Context Photo That Sums Up the Internet

Image Via

Sometimes, the best thing about the internet is the random insanity it throws at us out of context. Take, for example, this photo. It evokes thoughts of Walter White chilling with the family, eating some snacks. The best part is, we really have no idea what is going on here. Apparently, someone with a surplus of money (we wont ask how) also needed a place to lay their nachos, salsa, and guac. What better place, we ask, then a giant pallet of (what must be laundered) money? Honestly, I can think of many places better to eat nachos off, but that is not the point here.

The point here is this is a perfect image for a lazy Sunday afternoon. It pretty much sums up the internet, and in the process, is something that 90% of us will not be able to relate to. Heck, I can't even afford the nachos. To whomever felt the need to both do this and photograph it to show the world, we are not sure if we admire you, or hate you.

Probably a little of both.

This sign makes it very clear that you are not to go in here. It also addresses the possibility that you look at such signs and say, “Or else what?” like I sometimes do. The consequences are clear. -via reddit

A Lesson Learned the Hard Way

He told her he didn’t need to find a wall stud, because he had half-inch toggle bolts. It worked for about a month, but when it did’t, it was a complete disaster. It took some guts for northfoggybrook to post the picture, but it was too funny not to. Along with some funny jokes and endless ribbing, commenters were glad to give advice on how to hang your TV on the wall the right way. That is, for when he can afford to buy another TV.

A Pink Grasshopper


(Photo: Tim Parkinson)

It's a lovely shade of pink, which is not what you might expect from a grasshopper. Though rare, pink grasshoppers are occasionally spotted. Tim Parkinson found this one in Norfolk, UK.

What causes pink grasshoppers? Victoria Hillman, a wildlife biologist and photographer, explained a year ago in National Geographic. It's the result of a genetic mutation similar to albinism:

It is called erythrism an unusual and little-understood genetic mutation caused by a recessive gene similar to that which affects albino animals. This mutation results in one of two things happening or even a combination of the two; a reduce or even absence of the normal pigment and/or the excessive production of other pigments, in this case red which results in pink morphs. Although it was first discovered in 1887 in a katydid species, it is extremely rare to see these pink morphs so you can imagine our delight at finding so many in one area and they probably all have the same parents both carrying the recessive gene. All the individuals we found were nymphs and a couple of things can now happen if they make it to adulthood, they can lose the pink colouring altogether, they may stay pink or even be a variation between the two! We will be checking back on these individuals throughout the coming weeks and months to see what happens.

Intimate Portraits Of Teens In Mosh Pits

It's said to have started with the punk pogo, then it went on to become hardcore slam dancing before the bastardized pronunciation of mash left us calling them mosh pits, but whatever you call them chances are you know the scene- a bunch of people at a hardcore or metal show thrashing about with reckless abandon. 

Photographer Emily Stein captures the feeling of being up close and personal with your fellow hard music lover in the pit in her photo series 'Saturday's Mosh', capturing today's punky teens in their natural environment.

Emily's images captures the chaos, emotion and general giddiness felt by her kid subjects as they take in a show, and they're likely to make those who've dwelled in their share of mosh pits feel nostalgiac.

Sleepy Bird

At the end of a long day, the topiary laid back and slept.

I'm having trouble determining the origin of this bush, but I gather that it is located in Le Jardin de Plantes, a botanical garden in Paris. It may have been inspired by the work of the children's book illustrator Claude Ponti.

8 Wedding Photos Taken at Precisely the Wrong Moment


(Photo: unknown)

Or at the perfect moment, depending on your point of view. Is this blushing bride reaching out to grab that workman's tush? No, it's just the angle of the shot. She's actually looking at something else off-camera. I'll let you guess what that is.

This is 1 of 8 awkward wedding photos rounded up by Kelsey Borresen of the Huffington Post. There appears to be no Photoshop involved--just bad timing.

Noah’s Cake

When you keep your expectations low enough, you’ll never be disappointed. According to redditor xdrtypopx, this cake was for an intern who completed the term. Judging from the Batman logo and the Hannah Montana decoration, it was probably a fairly young intern. Best of luck in the future, kid!

Embarrassingly Bad School Dance Photos

Every year elementary, junior high and high school students have extremely embarrassing photos taken of them as part of the educational experience, photos of their awkward phases captured for posterity and placed in a photo album to be shared with friends and family.

Class photos are one thing, but there is nothing more embarrassing than a pic taken before a school dance, especially if you’re like the kids in this collection of cringe-worthy pics, kids who thought it would be a great idea to dress and act creatively for the photo.

There's the duct tape Warhol duo, who are totally going to blow people's minds at the dance, there's the creepy trio who look like they might know each other a little too well, and then there's this camel clutch loving couple, who are looking forward to a career in professional wrestling:

They kinda make your old school photos seem pretty alright, don't they?!

Planet Express Is Feeling The Economic Crunch

Everything has gone downhill for the Planet Express gang since their reality show Futurama was officially cancelled.

First Fry, Amy, Leela and Zoidberg had to get new jobs to help pay the bills, then Hermes left to tend his indoor "farm", and Bender was never really into the whole delivery service game so he decided to devote the rest of his battery life to crime.

Left with nothing but Scruffy and the ship Professor Farnsworth was forced to set Scruffy free and sell most of the ship for scrap:

Now, instead of delivering packages, Planet Express delivers people to their chosen destinations, relatively unharmed...

Creepy Portraits Of People Covered In Junk Food

Photographer James Ostrer has taken the idiom you are what you eat far too literally in this deliciously creepy photo series full of portraits of people covered in sugary sweets and junk food:

The images may be terrifying to those who are on a diet, and might make people with a serious sweet tooth consider cannibalism for the first time, but they also bring to light another issue facing people today- the torture of innocent models.

Imagine being one of the unlucky models posing for this series, having to endure hours of food slathering, and the inevitable acne to follow, only to have your true identity obscured by food.

And the worst part of all is the fact that models can't even eat junk food, talk about your tasty torture!

Roman Emperor Marcus Aurelius Looked a Lot Like Screech

(Images: Livius, NBC)

Webcomic artist Zach Weinersmith noticed the uncanny resemblance. Marcus Aurelius, the Emperor of Rome from 161-180 A.D., had a similar face and hairstyle of Screech Powers, a character on Saved by the Bell. Perhaps the Sage of Bayside High School will also be remembered as a philosopher king.
