Photoshoppers Are Loving This Super Sexy Gecko

Not all geckos are created equal -and this one might just be the sexiest gecko alive. Fortunatley for the world at large, his owner was kind enough to upload this image of him to the internet so we can all bask in his glory.

Unsurprisingly, people had a blast with photoshopping him in all types of hilariously over-the-top positions. 

And not all of them are particularly sexy either -like this epic cliffhanger picture.

One thing they all have in ommon though is just how cool this fabulous gecko is. Here's hoping we see lots more of him in the future. In the meanwhile, you can enjoy an epic collection of ridiculous Photoshops over on Bored Panda.

The Best Vampire and Zombie Movies of All Time

For most horror movie fans, one of two movie monsters will always reign supreme -vampires and zombies. Fortunately for those who just can't get enough of these two terrible creatures, Collider has taken the time to rank the best films that feature each of the creatures. The vampire list includes the classic Dracula (of course) as well as more modern classics like Fright Night and Blade -but sorry Twilight fans, you'll have to look elsewhere for your validation. 

The zombie list has all the George Romero films you'd expect as well as some more clever takes on the genre -like Sean of the Dead and Paranorman (though I felt Fido deserved a place on the list as well).

So visit Collider to see their ranking of the best vampire movies and the best zombie movies and then come back here to debate their choices.

People Heaven is the Worst

You'd better hope that heaven doesn't make mistakes because if it does, this is the kind of thing that would ruin your eternity for, well, eternity. After all, being reconnected with your loved ones is great and all, but being connected with your deceased pets and getting to cuddle with puppies forever -now that sounds like actual heaven.

Maybe an Anne Frank Halloween Costume Isn't the Best Idea

Every year Halloween stores release a shockingly tasteless costume to the public that ends up getting pulled before the big day even arrives. This year that costume is an Anne Frank costume that was sold on HalloweenCostumes.com before they pulled it after wave after wave of customer outrage. While it would be one thing for a young girl to take inspiration from Anne Frank's story, it's entirely different for a company to try to capitalize on a Holocaust victim for cash -especially when they seem to think the appropriate pose for the costume model is a sassy little troublemaker. 

Of course, the costume wasn't just limited to HalloweenCostumes.com -it was also for sale on other Halloween websites as well (though it does get pulled pretty quickly from most sites as soon as angry Twitter users have found it). Most of the other sites are labeling the costume as "World War II Evacuee Girl" instead of saying outright that it is Anne Frank. Either way, the result is a pretty tasteless way to cash in on a tragic historical figure.

Sometimes Accidental Google Searches Bring the Best Results

Usually when you mistype something on Google, you either get results that have nothing to do with what you're looking for or Google will auto-correct your search.

Or a corgo ship. Over on Bored Panda, you can see some truly wonderful accidental Google searches that will make you smile and laugh. 

So don't miss the whole list here.

This Guy Cosplayed as the Convention Center Building

There are so many cosplays out there that it can be hard to think of something no one else has done. At the New York Comic Con a few weeks ago, someone came up with a completely new an original cosplay costume -the convention center itself. It was spotted by DC comics writer Scott Snyder, who posted it on his Twitter and it quickly became viral.

The reactions from fans on Twitter are pretty brilliant -you can read many of them over on Guacamoley.

Start Off Your Day With A Hot Cup of Buffalo Wing Coffee

You know the old expression, "The best part of waking up is Buffalo hot wings in your cup?" No, you don't, oh, I guess that's because it's not something anyone has ever said. Ever. But that didn't stop Tim Hortons from releasing Buffalo wing coffee made of esspresso, mocha and Buffalo sauce flavor topped with steamed milk sprinkled with “zesty Buffalo seasoning.” The nauseating flavor is only available in two locations in Buffalo, NY.

Personally, I think this is a terrible idea -if only because they didn't include a celery stir stick or any blue cheese flavor. You can read more about the novelty beverage over at Eater.

It's worth noting that this isn't the first time the company has experimented with Buffalo flavored treats -they previously released a Buffalo donut in 2014.

Magical Fantasy Potion Necklaces

When you play fantasy RPGs either in a video game or in a tabletop setting, you know just how critical it is to have the right potion on you when you need it. Just because they may not exist in real life though doesn't mean there's no benefit to wearing it around your neck. 

If you want to enjoy a little more magic in your life, then you should check out the Aether Brewery jewelry collection on Etsy. They have healing, mana and renewal potions in both earring and necklace varieties, so no matter what kind of potion you need, they have you covered.

Crazy Things Celebrities Did in the Name of Scientology

Scientology is known for its many celebrity followers, and it's also known for making those followers do some strange things. For example, Nancy Cartwright created a robo-call recording in the voice of Bart Simpson to solicit donations for the church -prompting Fox to issue a public statement stating they do not support any any "religion, philosophy or system of beliefs."

Could You Drink a Cockroach Cappuccino?

Barista Chang Kuei Fang is quite gifted when it comes to making foam art. She often makes custom creations based on her client's pet photos, but after a video of her cockroach drink went viral, she's now constantly being asked to create insect coffees.

The art take up to 15 minutes to create and Fang charges anywhere from $6.50 to $32 for one of her drinks -making them pretty pricey for a cup of coffee. But then again, it's a small price to pay for a drinkable masterpiece.

See more of the crazy concoctions on her Facebook or The Daily Mail.

The Best Places to See Marine Life on Vacation This Winter

Winter is a great time to see marine animals and if you're willing to go somewhere a bit cool this season, there are a lot of places you might want to visit. In fact, with these kind of animals, it might be a good idea to plan a vacation around specific species. For example, if you want to see narwhals, Nanavut, Canada is a great place to go. On the other hand, if you want to see reindeer, you should head to Tromso, Norway. And not all of the places are chilly -the best place to visit humpback whales is in Hawaii.

Fun Secrets About The Disney Cruise Line

Disney likes to add an element of magic to all of their properties and even their cruise line is full of special secrets. In fact, even people who have traveled on Disney cruises often are unaware of all the fun things available to them.

For example, pin traders are given one night per cruise of amazing pin trading with the crew, but the nights are not on the official schedules and are never publicized so you have to keep your ears open to participate. Another fun fact -you can exchange currency on the ship without any commission fee. Oh and want to catch the newest Disney flick but won't be on land to see it? All films are released on the ship the same day they are released in the states.

Every State's Favorite Halloween Candy

Does your state like chocolate, bubble gum or fruit candy for Halloween? CandyStore.com compiled a cool interactive map to help visualize each state's favorite flavors. It's worth noting that the data is based on sales, not consumption because there's no way enough people from any state actually like to eat candy corn that much.

So do you like your state's favorite and if so, is it actually your favorite? As a Californian, I like M&M's, but they're certainly not my top choice and I don't know many other people who would choose them above all other candies either.

The Worst Types of Food Snobs Ranked

Zeon recently wrote about the 19 types of beer snobs and how they compare to one another, but even more common (and often even more pretenious) are food snobs. Fortunately, the same site that brought us the list of beer snobs has now followed up with a list of the most annoying food snobs

From the sourcing stickler to the guilt-tripping vegan, you've no doubt seen almost all of these types in person and probably unknowningly went out to dinner with them before you found out how annoying they are at restaurants. It's hard to argue that all of these types of eaters are obnoxious, what is up for debate is which one is the worst. Personally, I think the over-pronouncer might just be the most terrible person on the list. 

So check out the list for yourself and then let us know who you hate the most in the comments.

How to Get in the Halloween Spirit Even if You're a Huge Scaredy Cat

Halloween is a great time to get spooked, but if you don't like feeling scared there aren't quite as many fun options since you probably don't want to go to any haunted houses. That doesn't mean you're out of options if you're trying to get in the Halloween spirit though. Fodors has rounded up 13 fun ideas to celebrate Halloween even if you're kind of a wuss. Some of the ideas might still be a little scary for the meekest people out there -like going on a walk in the woods or a cemetery, but a trip to Disneyland or your local zoo is pretty scare-free for just about everyone.

This Nurse Paints With a Syringe in Her Free Time

Nurses have to use syringes all day long, so it's no wonder that when nurse Kimberly Joy Mallo Magbauna decided to start painting during her free time, she opted to use a tool she had already mastered at work. 

Her cool creations require filling syringes up with paint and then squeezing it onto the canvas in thin, controlled splatters. The results are beautiful, intricate and entirely unique. 

You can see more of her work on her Facebook page or at Bored Panda.

Gallery 1988's Epic Bojack Horseman Art Show

Fun Facts About Reddit

Just about everyone is familiar wtih Reddit, but what do know about the history of the site itself? You might be surprised about some of the fascinating facts about the site featured in this Daily Dot article. For example, did you know that as of 2012 the site had only spent $500 on advertising (and presumably not much after that either)? Or that the site didn't originally get comments and that, fittingly, the first comment on the site was a complaint about how they added the option to comment? 

Enjoy all 30 facts about about Reddit here.

What Non-Americans Find the Most Baffling About America

(Cows of Ameica by Stephen Brian Philips)

What's normal to you about your culture may be seriously weird to someone from somewhere else. Over at Reddit, someone asked non-Americans "What is the weirdest thing about America that Americans don't realise is weird?" The responses are funny and sometimes very surprising to those of us from the states. For example, many people commented about the abundance of squirrels in the country and one person found the way we dispose of dead fish down the toilet to be the strangest thing in the world.

One thing that's not all that surprising is just how many of them had their minds blown by our portion sizes.

See all the responses here.

Terrible Trend Alert: The Avocado Toast Costume

Avocado toast might be one of the most annoying food trends from the last five years -and the fact that Millennials are buying it rather than homes doesn't help. As if avocado toast wasn't bad enough as a food (not that it's bad, just its whole trendiness), it's even more obnoxious as a Halloween costume.

But this year, avocado toast is catching on as the trendy new costume as well. Brit & Co has instructions to make your own, while Parents Magazine can tell you how to make this obnoxious hipster version complete with a child's own "cold brew" chocolate milk.

Worst of all, you can even make your in-bread cat into avocado toast with this Etsy costume by Miss Maddy Makes.

It's only a matter of time until you see crummy lycra costumes in a bag at all those generic Halloween stores out there.

The Stories Behind the Greatest Movie Props of All Time

There are some movie props you will never forget. In fact, some of them are the cornerstone of the film they appeared in -like Wilson from Survivor, Rosebud from Citizen Kane or the Maltese falcon from, you know, The Maltese Falcon. Thrillist recently ranked the 100 best movie props of all time and rather than just write them all down, they also included the stories behind each of the props. It's a fascinating article though you probably won't want to read every single story behind all 100 props unless you have a whole lot of time.

The Epic Heels of Zombie Peepshow

Some women like functional flats and some prefer fancy heels, but it takes a special kind of girl to appreciate the wildly over-the-top heels made by Etsy seller Zombie Peepshow.

As you may have guessed from the name, most of the shoes in the shop have a dark twist in them like the Disney shoes up top, but there are plenty that aren't creepy, like these mermaid heels.

But if the shoes aren't horror-inspired, they instead are delightfully geeky -like this set with dinosaurs on the heels.

And like practically every seller who creates geeky stuff on Etsy, there are, of course, the obligatory and awesome Star Wars creations.

So check out the full Zombie Peepshow inventory over at Etsy.

Gestures You Shouldn't Use in Other Countries

Most of us don't think twice about our gestures other than the fact that they might help us communicate our thoughts more effectively. But while your nods and thumbs up might be fine to use in the US, you might want to think twice before using the same gestures in other countries. Even something as seemingly innocent as keeping your hands in your pockets can be seen as rude in Japan and Korea. 

So find out more about what your gestrues could mean in other countries here.
