Every anime fan wondered one thing while watching Dragon Ball Z- how do I raise my power level like a super saiyan?
It turns out raising your power level is a lot easier than you think, all you have to do is win the lottery, inherit a fortune or become ridiculously rich somehow and you'll have DBZ-like power at your disposal.
Comic artist JHALL created these illustrated comparisons to show us how rich people are just like DBZ characters, only they don't wear cool costumes, fight to the death or save the planet.
But other than that they're exactly the same!*wink*
Hindsight is the only super power we've all had at some point in our lives, and the moment we discover we have this power we also discover that it's pretty much useless.
Because, as this comic from It's The Tie shows, all foresight really gives us is a cup full of fear, a bucket full of regret and a splash of sadness which leave us feeling all wet about our life choices.
Do you think the pyramids were built by slaves? That Romans always wore togas? How about that old one about people getting married around 12 and 13 throughout most of history? Yeah, none of that happened and here are the truths behind those myths and seven more courtesy of TopTenz.
Even if you already know the truth behind some of these misconceptions, it's a handy page to bookmark for when you tell someone the reality and they argue with you about it.

Many construction workers like to boast about how tough and macho they are, especially while putting down pints at the bar after work.
But these four guys don't need words- because they've got this photo to do all the talking for them.
They posed for this picture while standing (or sitting) atop the 295-foot-tall spire they helped add to the Wilshire Grand in Los Angeles, officially making it the tallest building in L.A. at 1,100 feet.
The top piece is an LED beacon that can be programmed to light up in varying colors. "The intention behind this is to use the Spire Tip light to celebrate special events in the city such as holiday colors in December or special events in Los Angeles such as Dodger Blue when they win the Pennant," says Chris Martin, CEO and Chairman of AC Martin, the building’s designers.
It seems some modern cruise lines want to take sea travel back to the days of the Titanic, and with all the food poisoning, accidental collisions and passenger sickness there's no time like the present to stay home.
But if you're thinking about taking a pleasure cruise you should check out this video footage shot by passengers aboard the Carnival Legend first, so you're prepared for any possibility.
The Carnival Legend was heading back to Seattle after a week-long excursion around Alaska when the boat suddenly tilted to a stomach-churning degree, sending many passengers into a panic.
Water from the upper deck pools started pouring into the lower decks, people started screaming, but the passengers were (supposedly) able to shift the balance of weight and turn the ship upright again.
Carnival issued this statement about the incident:
“Carnival Legend experienced a technical issue related to the ship's starboard steering gear which caused the ship to unexpectedly list about eight degrees.” They also said the “issue was rapidly corrected and the ship proceeded to its scheduled stop” and the “ship has been operating since that times without any issues.”

Don't you hate it when you park your car somewhere and come back to find someone has dinged, gouged or dented your door something awful?
If you live in Russia you may be SOL, since Russian drivers aren't required to have insurance, so you can either cry about it, take your frustration out on other cars, or do like this crafty Russian artist and reinvent the dent.
Who needs a new door or a costly body shop repair when you've got the power of artistic skills on your side?
Now his car is a rolling guide to the Altai mountains and a shining example of how to turn a trashed door into an artistic treasure.
the F-16 student pilot started to pull up for a barrel roll, but was forced into a G-induced loss of consciousness half-way through the maneuver. At an altitude of 5,180 meters (17,000 feet), the jet then began to drop nose-first at an angle of 55 degrees. Within seconds, it had dropped to just 2,670 meters (8,760 feet). At the fastest point of descent, the jet was traveling at 1,210 kilometers (750 miles) per hour – only marginally less than supersonic speeds.
Just as the fate of the pilot seemed doomed, the aircraft’s Automatic Ground Collision Avoidance System kicks in, causing the jet to swoop upright and regain control, seen in the video around the 0:32 minute mark. This is the fourth time this technology has saved an aircraft.
Hearing how overcrowded it is in China and seeing it in pictures are two different things, because nothing registers the meaning of the word "overcrowded" quite like a photo.
China is currently home to a staggering 1.3 billion people, a number which is growing rapidly since they dropped the "one child per family" laws established in the 1970s.
But it has only been a year or so since they dropped this policy so it's still unclear whether societal balance will be restored when more boys and girls are born in China.
However, if it works to restore balance between young and old and man and woman China could once again rise to its former glory as a society, only this time there will be a hell of a lot more people trying to live in the same amount of space.
Ripley kissed Newt on the forehead and whispered "goodnight Newt", and Newt let out a satisfied coo because she felt comforted by Ripley's presence and receiving affection made her feel human again. But she knew she'd get no sleep tonight, because the nightmares were now real and Newt had seen too much to sleep comfortably ever again. Every time she closed her eyes she swore she could smell the xenomorph's strangely sweet scent and feel its breath upon her face, and so she'd open her eyes again and hope to one day be able to sleep without dreaming about murderous alien beings...
Share your love of sci-fi with the world by wearing this Goodnight Newt t-shirt by manoystee, it's deadly cool looking and sure to get you lots of compliments from your fellow Aliens fans!
Creating art is a challenge, and making a living as an artist is even more of a challenge as you struggle to find paying clients, create something they like and collect your pay from them. But the payoff is the creation of a work which will live much longer than we will, our visual contribution to the future. Artists should therefore band together and stand united under a crested banner which reflects their eternal struggle to visually appeal, with the crest stating "life is short, but art prevails".
Celebrate art's lasting influence on mankind with this ARS LONGA VITA BREVIS t-shirt by Medusa Dollmaker, it's a great way to show the world you're proud to be an artist!
The days of the damsel in distress are long gone, and these days if you call a woman a dame, broad or some cheeky pet name you think sounds cute you'll likely get smacked upside your head.

Show some love for your favorite female heroes with this CALL US WEAK t-shirt by Skullpy, it's one awesome design that's sure to get you lots of affection from your fellow fans!
The stuff we carry around in our bags, purses and pockets when we leave the house says a lot about who we are, where we come from, and our standing in society.
So imagine what all the stuff carried by immigrants says about them, their bags full of typical travel supplies plus all the prized possessions they've brought with them to start their new lives.
These possessions are then unceremoniously tossed in the trash when the immigrant is detained by the U.S. Border Patrol, the story of an immigrant's journey tossed like used tissue.
Photographer Thomas Kiefer used to work as a janitor at the U.S. Customs office in Ajo, Arizona, whre he saw all of the "non-essential" items carried by illegal immigrants thrown away like trash.
Thomas felt it was a shame that those items were tossed out in such a way, so he rescued them from the garbage and started taking pictures of the items he'd collected.
Individually the items photographed for Thomas' series El Sueno Americano don't say much, but together on the table they tell a story about individuals willing to risk it all in search of a better life.
This poor little mud-covered puppy was discovered by workers at a construction site in London. He was quickly sent to the nearest vet -the South Essex Wildlife Hospital to be cleaned up and saved, but after a little shampoo, his rescuers were shocked by what they found underneath.
That's right, the poor little muddy, debris-covered pup was actually an adorable little fox kit. Puppy or not, I'm sure this little cutie was happy to be rescued from his filthy cocoon.
Sailor Moon has felt locked in to her choice of pet for decades, stuck with that sassy little black cat Luna for the sake of series continuity, but when she was introduced to a stumpy yet adorable Corgi named Ursa Minor she felt it was time for a change. Cats are cool and all but they're a bit too aloof for Serena's taste, she prefers an animal that's happy to see her when she comes home from fighting the forces of evil, and she's always wanted a pet she can take on walks. But that adorable little Corgi had better watch his step, because Luna is jealous and looking for revenge...
Choose to wear only the most adorable tees by bringing home this Sailor Corgi t-shirt by Winged Warrior, it's sure to make people smile wherever you go!
The plot of Stranger Things seems pretty straightforward to me, and yet there are quite a few questions purposefully left unanswered, which fans are happy about because that means we get a second season.
But one question remained on my mind well after I finished binge watching the first season- what is Eleven's relationship to the monster the kids call the Demogorgon?
Some people say they love cats so much they want to eat them all up, and some cats are so sweet they give us that too much sugar tickle when we pet them, but no critter is as sweet or delicious as the Choco Cherry Kits. They're the purr-fect blend of sweet treat and cuddly kitty, grown to satisfy both human cravings at once, and if you should happen upon a Cherry Kit patch it will be extremely hard for you to leave. That's because our food, and our pets, pale in comparison to the Choco Cherry Kit, and after just one meow-thful you'll be hooked for life!
Share some deliciously geeky style with the world by wearing this Choco Cherry Kits t-shirt by Rose McClain, it's a sweet and silly treat for the eyes!
The 8-Bit Guy created this video to show us the inner workings of an old school game cartridge, comparing their function to floppy disks and revealing how memory expanded by cartridges helped improve graphics.
Anxiety can play tricks on your mind, twisting all incoming information to help perpetuate fear and keep you stressed out, feeding the anxiety monsters lurking within you.
But you can battle these monsters by taking what people say at surface value instead of trying to find hidden meanings in their words.
For instance- when somebody offers facts and figures to put you at ease about your trip just thank them and travel on, or else people are liable to start offering up names of psychiatrists you should see.
Anxiety can be hard to overcome, and it seems the smarter you are the more your anxious mind wants to quantify all of your fears so they become more real.
But when your anxious brain starts doing the math on one in a million odds it's probably time to find a new hobby- like accounting.
We all use language based on our backgrounds, lifestyles and how our friends speak, and your age can make a big difference in your choice of words. So now Zimbio challenges you to see if the site can guess your age based on your language use. I can't say it's particularly accurate, given that I'm 32 and it claimed I was 40 or 50, even so, it's a pretty fun quiz and I admit that I probably do use more mature language than most people my age.
State fairs are known for deep-fried goodness and the reality is that because new items are introduced every year at practically every fair, it's hard to find new and unusual creations. That being said, fried Jell-O is certainly a new one and unlike fried Kool Aid and many other fried treats, it's not just funnel cake with some kind of liquid poured into the batter. This time it's actually Jell-O battered and then deep fried and it must be good -after all, it won first place in the Best Taste award at the Texass State Fair. So if you get your chance to find some fried Jell-O, remember, there's always room for J-E-L-L-O.
In the 1980s gamers were introduced to a new kind of interactive game-VCR board games, the games you played while sitting in front of the TV.
VCR board games were seen as cutting edge by some, a weak comparison to console video games by others, but every kid who liked board games had to try out a VCR game at least once, to see what all the buzz was about.
The difference was immediately apparent, as a live action game master on the tape guided their gaming experience by yelling at them, telling them what to do or simply by adding some video scene flavor to the game.
Everybody seems to think those kids from Stranger Things are the only youngsters who have faced pure evil and lived to tell the tale, but Dipper and Mabel have seen things too, the strangest things- mysterious things. You see, Gravity Falls is just full of odd characters, strange goings on and supernatural occurrences, and the twins have faced it all, with a little help from their Gruncle Stan, of course. And if you think a demigorgon is terrifying you've never battled an annoyingly triangular dream demon like Bill Cipher or, even worse, come face-to-dimples with Little Gideon...
Show the world how much you love an animated mystery with this Mysterious Things t-shirt by kowanp, it's dark and delightful to look at, just like Gravity Falls!
