Instagram Metalslimer isn't afraid to cosplay male and female characters -only unlike most people who chose to do that, he is anything but androgynous. But that's precisely what makes his female cosplays so memorable -especially those Disney babes.
While his Jessica Rabbit is hilarious, the fact that his Belle cosplay looks like Gaston snuck into her wardrobe and got a little crazy.
People are buying comic books like never before thanks to the movie adaptations that are making billions in the box office, and yet the comic industry still struggles to stay afloat.
Nowadays people decide which series to read based on reviews online, so their opinions aren't swayed by a snazzy looking cover, but back in the day a gimmick cover was the ultimate way to sell comic books.
Guest artists were often brought in to create the bold illustrations on the cover, and this art was designed to make readers feel like that issue was something they couldn't live without.
Unfortunately, many companies also relied too heavily on needlessly gimmicky covers to sell their books, like The Amazing Spider-Man issue 400 which was supposed to look like a tombstone but wound up looking like a blurry mess.
Rotten Tomatoes started out as a site that featured movie reviews "from a variety of critics in the U.S.", and now the review aggregator website is "the most trusted measurement of quality for Movies & TV."
But a film that achieves a one hundred percent rating is something special no matter how you feel about the site, and yet many of the movies that have earned a perfect rating are quite surprising.
Just last month we linked to a Today I Found Out article featuring 10 facts that sound completely unbelievable, but since then, they've posted two more articles with that very same theme -so now you can learn 20 more unbelievable but true facts. For example, did you know the biggest earthquake ever recorded hit 23 on the Richter Scale? Fortunately, no cities were destroyed because this earthquake was recorded by NASA and took place on a star millions of lightyears away.
Also strange, Saudi Arabia imports camels from Australia for food -the local camels there are raised exclusively for racing and domestic purposes. And did you know that the people who voiced Mickey and Minnie Mouse were actually married in real life.
When the holiday season rolls around you know it- there's a spring in our step, a smile on our faces as we make our lists and check them twice to make sure we get our shopping done and give everyone on our list a great present.
But driving around town or looking at a half dozen different websites to find the perfect geeky presents is a waste of time- especially when you can find all the shirts you need at the NeatoShop!
We all have one thing in common during the holiday season- shopping
Between the constant delays, the filthy conditions, the crime, the stench, and the crowd of people you're forced to share the space with it's no wonder people would rather pay to take an Uber to work than ride the train.
The train scene has gotten so bad that even superheroes are having a hard time surviving the trip, which isn't that surprising if you consider they have more experience fighting giant monsters than dirty naked dudes.
Venus flytraps aren't generally thought of as plants worth stealing, and since they're seen as a novelty addition to a garden it doesn't seem like they'd be worth much money.
But the Venus Flytrap is an endangered species due to overcollection so there's real money to be made by poaching Flytraps, and therefore poaching has become a family tradition passed down for generations.
The Venus Flytrap is native to swampy areas in North and South Carolina, and the only place in the world where it grows wild is a 75 mile radius around Wilmington, where it has been protected by state legislation since 1956.
In fact, poaching has become such a big problem conservationists are afraid the Flytraps will be picked into extinction by poachers, who often sell the plants on the black market for about 25 cents each.
The poachers aren't above stealing this rare plant by the thousands from greenhouses and nurseries in the area too, and it's estimated there are only about 35,000 plants remaining in the wild.
Movie extras mill about in the background of our favorite TV shows and movies, paid to act like regular folks doing regular stuff while the main actors deliver their performances.
But hiring regular folks to be movie extras can pose a problem if they're not coached on the concept of blending in, like the crazy "businessman" who tries to steal the spotlight in this clip from Ghostbusters.
It can be just as hard to make a kid understand how their fidgeting, or in the case of North By Northwest preemptive ear plugging, may detract from a scene's sense of drama when they're visible behind the actors.
For most Whovians the holiday season has been associated with Doctor Who ever since they watched their first Christmas special, and now we have a present from The Doctor to look forward to at the end of every year.
Can you believe that Robin Hood: Men in Tights is over twenty years old? If you agree that this is one of, if not the absolute, best Robin Hood movies ever created, you won't want to miss this collection of great trivia about the film. For example, did you know that Mel Brooks had already worked on a Robin Hood tv series back in the seventies? Or that Sean Connery was originally going to be King Richard and was going to play him in drag, but that he wanted too much money for the role?
There are very few homes left in America that are over 150 years old, so any time someone buys a really old home they face many decisions about renovation.
Is the house going to be able to be brought up to code? Could the home be considered historic and therefore worthy of preserving at all costs? Or is the whole thing just waiting to be torn down so the lot can be used for a new build?
These were the dilemmas faced by Maria and Mac Thomas when they bought a house in Fayette, Mississippi that was built in 1825, an historic plantation home known as Laurietta.
From the outside the house looked like a total tear down, but inside they found Laurietta was a solid structure, so they decided to go with a gut renovation instead of destruction.
Three years and lots of hard work later they were able to transform that dilapidated old house into a thing of beauty once again.
These strict adherents to the Book of Grammar can't pass up a chance to put someone in their place for misspelling a word or using punctuation incorrectly, which helps Grammar Nazis avoid dealing with their real problem- they're jerks.
There is no gift more personal or thoughtful than a gift basket, but they can also come off as a bunch of junk you threw together at the last minute because you couldn't be bothered to buy a real gift.
However, the junky factor can be avoided by thinking about what the recipient likes, what you can make that won't look like crap, and how much the recipient cares about overall presentation.
Guys are less likely to give or receive gift baskets during the holidays, but if the baskets contained cool stuff for barbecuing, like a homemade rub and sauce and some special tools, they'd get the gift basket appeal.
And speaking of appeal- orange-cardamom marmalade. It's a yummy treat that's pretty easy to make, and it adds that homemade wow factor to any basket you put together.
But what if you're hopeless in the kitchen? You should consider giving a themed gift basket that contains cooking utensils and other kitchen stuff, soaps and stuff for the bathroom, etc.
The recipient will still appreciate and applaud the effort, and you won't have to worry about your lack of cooking skills making your basket look subpar.
Many Americans take the size and comfort of their bedrooms for granted, never stopping to think how good they have it when they complain about the outdated decor, lack of light or that it's "too small".
Jambyl Region, Kazakhstan
Does your bedroom have dirt floors, wooden slats for walls or a thatch roof that does little to keep the pests and weather out?

Then your bedroom is fine, but in case you're still on the fence about how good you've got it, or you're wondering how bedrooms in other countries compare to yours, check out these fun pics by photographer John Thackwray.
Riyadh, Saudi Arabia
John's photo series "My Room Project" has taken him from his home in South Africa to homes all around the world, where he mounts his camera on the ceiling to give us a better idea of how small the average bedroom really is.
These photos sure made me appreciate my central heating and king size bed!
One of the great things about the Harry Potter series is that it is detailed enough to be a great story, but still open enough that it allows for an entire world of fan theories, sequels and other additions. Ranker has collected some of the best fan theories in one place and some of them really are mind blowing. For example, are the Dursleys cruel to Harry because he has a horcrux inside of him and Horcruxes do make people inexplicably angry and hateful? Or were Neville's spells backfiring so long because he chose to use his father's wand rather than using a wand that actually chose him?
Dialect coach Erik Singer shows us what the Pitts and Smiths do wrong when they affect an accent, but he also shows us how some actors get it oh so right, like Philip Seymour Hoffman's portrayal of Truman Capote.
Audrey posted this heartfelt letter to her ex's new girlfriend on Facebook's Love What Matters Page along with the photo below, to express how grateful she is that the new gf is so sweet to her daughter Riley.
This story should inspire exes who don't get along to consider how their hatred might affect the kids caught in the middle, and always remember the new person in your ex's life will be spending time with your kids- so try to keep your cool!
I'm sure you've seen side-by-side comparisons that show how shockingly similar Miley Cyrus and Justin Bieber look, but you'd be surprised just how many male celebs look like female celebs and vice versa.
Actually, it's not that surprising considering Hollywood loves actresses with a distinct jaw line and actors with slightly androgynous faces, but some celebs look so similar they could almost be the same person.
And then we have to start asking ourselves- when was the last time you saw Maria Shriver and Willem Dafoe in the same room?
That has to be a coincidence, right? But how can we explain away the shockingly similar face shared by Scarlett Johansson and young Christopher Walken?
Parents can't seem to agree on whether there's a secret to raising good kids or not, and for every person who swears they know the secret there's an absentee parent who managed to raise a good kid even though they're never home.
But the secret to raising a good kid is the kind of thing behaviorists and psychologists love to argue about, and these experts love to boil it all down to one easy to remember list whenever possible.
According to human development experts at Harvard University there are 6 or 7 main "guideposts to raising caring, respectful, and ethical children"-
1. Teach children to control their emotions
2. Talk to them about taking responsibility for their actions
3. Teach your children to be compassionate and help the weak
4. Teach your children to be grateful
5. Instill your family values in them and show them what constitutes good behavior
What's better than a twenty peice chicken nuggets? How about one jumbo nugget that takes two hands to hold? This video shows two different methods to make your McNugget dream a reality -though one is clearly better than the other.
Of course, the problem with having a nugget this big is that your dipping sauce options are limited and I doubt most McDonalds will give you twenty sweet and sour sauces to pour into a large bowl for dippping.
The periodic table is a work of art in itself, but putting a generic poster of the elements on your wall is a little uninspired. If you're looking for a particularly attractive way to display the elements, this Instructables creation is far more appealing.
You can even make your own lamp over by following the instructions, but it's not particularly easy -and you're going to have to spend some serious time and effort to get samples to fill in the jars. In fact, the one in the tutorial only has 20 samples so far.
There are so many things to love about the 1980s it's hard to fit them all into one project, but if you're going to properly pay homage to that radical decade your project has to include a shopping mall.
Malls were like microcosms of American life in the 80s- they were the place where you could see all the latest styles, trends and tech, or all the noisy new games in the video arcade.
But being indestructible is not without its drawbacks, and when you live in a world where evil seems to triumph at every turn this power doesn't make you feel any more secure about your place in the world.
And if you end up shooting your mouth off like Deadpool then villains will spend all their time and effort trying to figure out how to make you stay down for good.
It's enough to make you as blue as Doctor Manhattan, who found that immortality breeds apathy and nihilistic tendencies, and Galactus' has learned that immortality leads to soul crushing loneliness.
Of course, it doesn't help that Galactus is older than the Big Bang and has to eat planets to survive, both of which are total deal breakers for most potential dates.
People love to cry "fake" when they see amazing photos online, and while plenty of fakes have been posted there are also lots of real shots created by creative photographers that blow people's minds.
Flickr user "Patrick" shot pictures of glass covered in water droplets above a bowl of M&M's with a macro lens to create the trippy psychedelic pic above.
Photographer Michael Paul Smith doesn't own the actual vintage cars featured in his "photos of the past"- he uses the power of perspective to make scale models look like full sized cars cruising down the streets of Boston.
These staged landscape shots created by Matthew Albanese look so realistic people actually believe they're amazing pics shot outdoors at just the perfect time, but they're actually all shot inside Matthew's studio.
Matthew creates miniature landscapes that fit on a table top, then he uses forced perspective to make them look like massive outdoor scenes- he created this cool tornado shot with cotton, wool, ground parsley and moss.
But the most deliciously fake looking photo is this flying burger shot created by Sam Kaplan for Boston Magazine- created using rods and glass plates to make each piece of the burger look like it's floating in mid-air.
Comic strips wouldn't be the same without that (typically last panel) twist ending, and even though this last panel reveal is a well known part of the medium there are still plenty of strips out there that can still surprise you.
Toon Hole is one of those comic strips, and their black comedy coupled with the eye pleasing artwork makes Toon Hole the strip you need to brighten up our dark days.
Because you can't go wrong with a comic strip like Toon Hole that delivers the funny without fail strip after toon-tastic strip!
Asian companies have been creating bootleg versions of American merch and media for decades, and in that time they have become masters of making knockoff products that are just different enough to avoid a lawsuit.
But when they decided to rip off mega hit Mad Max they didn't care how much their film resembled the original, and this attitude shifted Mad Shelia from bootleg to full blown parody film.
Mad Shelia looks like it might be the most enjoyable ripoff movie ever made, and the studio who made the film already has two sequels in the works, so the Mad Max crew better get to work or they risk being run over!
