Pet cats who are allowed to go outside often become acquainted with their human neighbors as they survey their kingdom, hanging out at various pads and scoring free food and pettings.
These cats usually wear a collar while they're outside, showing the neighbors that the cat they're feeding and petting has an owner nearby, but the collar can also act as a way for neighbors to communicate.
Wolverine is (arguably) the most successful knockoff character of all time, largely because the fine folks at Marvel worked hard to set their character apart from Lone Wolf/Timber Wolf, the DC character that inspired Wolvie.
However, the company's overuse of the character in the 80s and 90s led to an overabundance of knockoff characters created for storylines involving Wolverine, such as Shiv, Wild Child, Daken, Romulus and Wild Thing.
Since Wild Thing and Daken are technically Wolvie's kids they don't really count as knockoffs, but Shiv is the spitting image of Logan without the mask and has one claw on each hand instead of three.
But any savage comic character can be considered akin to Wolverine, so the feral characters Wild Child and Romulus, and the Liefeld character Feral for that matter, share that connection to him.
The report revealed that giraffe milk has a high fat content – 12.5%, to be precise. That compares with 3.5% in full fat cow’s milk (semi-skimmed has 1.5% – 1.8%, skimmed milk has less than 0.3% fat content).
In addition, giraffe milk contains similar amounts of riboflavin, thiamine and vitamin B6 to cow’s milk, but it has higher levels of vitamins B12 and A.
It's unlikely giraffe milk will make it into your local supermarket's dairy aisle anytime soon, even if only because giraffes won't just stand around and let humans milk them like cows.
Many adults put on a show and act real tough when they're out in public, using their macho attitude as a way to hide their social anxiety, but if a young kid was born tough they don't have to act- they just show off their skills.
This is Evnika Saadvakass from Voronezh, Russia, and she is one of the toughest nine-year-olds on the planet. But Evnika doesn't have to act tough or talk tough, because she lets her lightning fast fists do all the talking for her.
Dogs have a knack for making people feel pity for them, and when a dog sets its sad eyes upon us, its head, tail and ears hanging low us it tugs at our heartstrings and makes us want to comfort the poor pooch.
For instance- dogs make the saddest face in the world when they're left outside while their human goes inside a store, creating sadorable moments ready to be caught on camera.
The "Sad Dogs Outside Shops" Facebook page chronicles the plight of those poor abandoned and deprived dogs whose cruel owners leave them out in the cold, so we can all pity their sad, sad lives.
Apps like Snapchat and Instagram do all kinds of funny things with people's faces when their filters are applied to a photo, but most of these filters are silly and don't improve the look of the person in the photo.
But now there's Meitu, an app with filters that are both silly and enhance a person's looks- by making them look extremely cute!
Meitu is an anime beauty app that puts a sparkle in your big, beautiful eyes, adds a glow to your eerily smooth skin, and makes your rosy lips look perfectly pouty.
What's that you say? These words don't describe your face at all? They will when Meitu is finished with you!
Meitu told CNET in a statement that the data collection code was included because the company is headquartered in China, where tracking services provided by app stores such as the Apple App Store and Google Play are blocked.
"To get around this, Meitu employs a combination of third-party and in-house data tracking systems to make sure the user data tracked is consistent," said a Meitu spokesperson.
Sounds legit to me, and what's a little third-party data collection when you're left looking this fabulous, amirite? *wink*
You wouldn't want to live in, on or anywhere near the Death Star, nor would you want your planet to be in the space station's sights, but having a mini replica of the Death Star in your house can be really fun!
In this instance the Death Star-related fun to be had in your home involves modding an IKEA pendant lamp with a really cool transforming feature to look like an exploding Death Star.
There's something about a ridiculously cute graphic that can make even the biggest sourpuss on the planet crack a smile, which is why it's better to have the irresistible power of cute on your side.
So if you're looking for a t-shirt, longsleeve tee or hoodie that will make people purr with pleasure whenever they see you wearing it then the NeatoShop is the place to go to purchase the power of cute!
Cuteness is a power that can bridge both space and time
I can't believe how many posts I see on a daily basis which are written by people who still call Kaneda "Akira", Link "Zelda" or Samus Aran "Metroid".
These people insist on writing about geeky stuff yet can't be bothered to do their homework and discover these characters' real names, and then they add insult to injury by calling R2-D2 and C-3PO "robots".
That's why Sephko Comics created this important illustrated message for the Learn the Damn Name Foundation, to show those lazy bloggers that people care- so learn the damn names already! *shakes fist*
Brutalism and playgrounds don't sound like they would go well together, but judging by the way these kids look as they play on this Brutalist-inspired playground equipment they can't tell the difference.
originating in britain shortly after the second world war, brutalist architecture brought about a range of expressive structures made with raw materials and an uncompromisingly rugged aesthetic. across the country, architects constructed a number of large concrete residential buildings, some of which featured unconventional recreational areas for children.
the concrete and steel structures have been recast in reconstituted foam, allowing the objects’ formal characteristics to be viewed separately from their materiality. the interactive presentation of the playground allows visitors to explore the original spatial concepts of brutalism.
Tourists who visit the wild parts of Florida hear rumors they may see wild animals up close and personal during their visit, and yet they're still shocked when the rumors turn out to be true.
But I'm pretty sure most native Floridians would still flip out if they saw a twelve foot long alligator walking by just a few feet away.
Kim Joiner and Sean and Kristi Buckley were visiting the Circle B Park in Lakeland, Florida when a giant gator named Humpback strolled by like he's no big deal, giving Kim and the Buckleys a chance to play gator paparazzi.
And just like that Humpback was gone back to wherever 12-foot-long alligators spend their days, but not before Kim could shoot this video footage of his casual stroll.
Parents need to set boundaries for their children both as a way to teach them right and wrong and to keep them safe in the outside world, because kids who run amok with no boundaries are bound to get hurt.
My Dad is a very VERY introverted guy, and he never liked to be in large crowds. So unless it was a school event, I was forbidden from going to any large crowded events/places like the mall, concerts, sporting events.
I was told that this was for my own safety.
But some parents take the setting of household boundaries too far, and their ridiculous demands affect their kids for the rest of their lives.
We could only eat 2 cookies at a time, and no more than 4 in a day.
I was living on my own for like a year abiding by this rule, until one day I was like, "man, I REALLY want three Oreos, not two." And I did it.
8:30 pm bedtime. My. Entire. Damned. Life. Though, I knew as a teenager that making your high schooler go to bed when it was still light out half the time was whacko.
Well into my 20s I'd come back to visit for the holidays and dad would get up to use the toilet at night, see the light on in my room from me being awake reading a book at 10 p.m., and yell at me to go to sleep.
There may have been extenuating circumstances that the Redditors aren't sharing which led to these bizarre rules, but how does a parent justify not letting visitors poop in their house?
No one was allowed to poop in our house. We had a large house and all 4 of us had our own restrooms. There was this little girl with special needs I used to play with when I was little and once she had to use the restroom. My mom asked me where she was and I said she's in the bathroom. My mom walked in on the poor girl mid-poop and told her to go home and finish.
Gamers who dedicate a portion of their lives to playing an MMO take their character and that character's in-game accomplishments very seriously, and they live in fear of having their account hacked.
And when you've played an MMO for ten years there's bound to be an emotional reaction when you find out your account was hacked, but don't take it out on your friends or family or they might share the meltdown online.
Twitter user bakebythepound's brother understandably flipped out when his Runescape account was hacked and held for ransom, but his immature behavior at home pissed off his fam and made him a target for live tweeting.
The incident continued through the night and then bakebythepound's bitter bro hilariously started the fight again in the morning, all over a crappy MMO with graphics that would have looked outdated in the 90s.
People post sexy selfies online hoping they'll get the attention and likes they need to bolster their self esteem, and because the poser is the focus of the selfie they often forget to check what's behind them in the shot.
When Alyssa posted the sexy selfie above she was hoping people would tell her how pretty she looked in her fancy dress, but she hadn't considered how much her dirty bedroom would distract from the dress.
Soon Alyssa's Tweet went viral as people played their own version of I Spy with her selfie, analyzing the stuff littering her filthy floor and discovering marshmallows are an essential part of her diet.
Unfortunately, the marshmallows were also feeding an uninvited houseguest who had seen the mess and assumed Alyssa's room was a rat friendly hotel.
Everybody knows the skin cancer risks associated with tanning in the sun or in a tanning bed, and yet people who can't stand being pale are willing to take that risk so their skin stays nicely bronzed.
These people also tend to believe tanning beds are safer than tanning in the sun, so they hit the UV beds and tan without applying sunscreen thinking they'll be fine.
Well, Margaret Murphy from Dublin, Ireland wants these people to know that skin cancer is not a joke, so she's sharing pictures of her face while receiving daily treatments to remove pre-cancerous cells to send a message.
Margaret says she started tanning while living in Crete for a decade, and continued to use tanning beds when she returned home to Dublin, which resulted in the development of Actinic Keratosis on her face.
Now she's undergoing an Efudix treatment, which burns the pre-cancerous cells off her face, and sharing the pain on her Facebook page Mag's Murphys Journey, so people will learn from her mistake and use a high factor sunscreen.
They teased at the truth with Easter eggs and crossover clues in most of their movies, fans collected all the easter eggs and formed a unified world theory, and now Pixar has finally confirmed it- all of their movies exist in the same universe.
It's one of those announcements that make you say "yeah, I figured as much", and yet it's nice to hear it straight from the studio's mouth since most creators won't admit when their projects are all interconnected.
Cosplayers already look cool when they're strutting around in costume, except for those rare awkward moments when their costumes clash with their surroundings, but posing for cosplay photos in the snow is the coolest!
But cosplaying in the snow requires a different kind of commitment than Con cosplay, and those cosplayers who decide to pose for a themed shoot in the winter know they have to go big.
For example- you can't ride a horse into a convention (Ellie from The Last Of Us cosplay by EndureSurvivor)
And a horse can complete a cosplay like no prop ever could (Ellie from The Last Of Us cosplay by EndureSurvivor)
Con cosplay also limits your use of props, because nobody wants to carry around a giant, and often fragile, prop all day while they navigate through a sea of bodies (Winter Wonderland Orianna from League Of Legends by Lulu Cosplay)
And Cons don't properly capture the feeling of the winter holiday season like a trip to a mall all decked out for Christmas, where the decor makes cosplay photos that much more magical (Winter cosplay gathering by ourlivinglegacy)
Garlic is the king of all flavoring agents and condiments in many kitchens, and although garlic is nearly impossible to work into sweet recipes it works well in damn near every savory recipe ever created.
But many people avoid using fresh garlic because it's a pain to peel, too sticky and stinky to chop or crush, and hard to properly roast, and their dishes are left devoid of that great garlic flavor.
Luckily, there are simple solutions to all of these garlic problems- microwaving garlic cloves for about fifteen seconds will make peeling a snap, or you can just seal the cloves in a jar and shake vigorously until the skin falls away.
Roasted garlic is a delicious addition to salads, guacamole and other dips, or when spread on a piece of toast, but the roasting process can take about an hour which may be too long when you're making dinner.
So rather than waiting around for an hour throw the unpeeled garlic cloves in a cast iron skillet over medium heat, turning occasionally until they're cooked evenly on all sides.
There you'll find some of the coolest stuff on the market today, stuff like the KASIMIR Hedgehog Cheese Grater, the Big Joe Original Bean Bag Chair, and this brilliant Areaware Porcelain Bracelet Flask.
The best thing about Amazon's Interesting Finds section is you don't have to spend a dime to have a good time, you can just browse and check out all the cool stuff just to see what's out there.
Interesting Finds also seems like a great place to go for gift ideas, because there are so many cool and unique things on there that giftees are sure to love, like this Livedeal Sequined Mermaid Pillow Case.
The sequins are reversible, so you can write stuff on the pillow with the swipe of a finger!
Unless you're the kind of person who points at a random design on the tattoo parlor wall and says "gimme that one, anywhere you want" you probably spent time deciding what to get and where to get it before getting inked.
After all, tattoos are a lifetime commitment, so it makes sense to plot out your new body art before you go into the parlor, and yet people never seem to consider how painful the process is going to be.
It won't hurt too bad if you get a tattoo on your bicep or forearm, but tattoo your wrist, hands or feet and you'll feel excruciating pain and an ache in your bones.
Even though the inner thigh is fleshier than your hands or feet getting tattooed there tends to hurt more, but that pain is nothing compared to getting a tattoo on the back of your knees or in your armpit.
But the two most painful places to get tattooed are also the most horrifying- the eyes or eyelids and the genitals, aka the last places you should let people go near when they're holding sharp objects!
The unboxing videos featured on YouTube are an acquired taste, which is a nice way of saying most of them are pretty much unwatchable unless you have an unboxing fetish or never get any presents.
And yet this annoying trend isn't going away anytime soon, so people like The Over Enthusiastic Gamer have begun making unboxing video parodies for those of us who like a little deadpan humor with their box content reveals.
Neighbors who always borrow your tools and never bring them back is only funny in sitcoms, because in real life their borrowing forces you to go through an awkward moment to get it back.
Of course, it could be worse- your neighbor could just straight up steal the tool from your yard, and never give it back, which is why people end up installing security cameras.
David Wells of Chicago had his shovel stolen by a sneaky neighbor who didn't know security cameras had caught her in the act, and when she didn't return the shovel he decided to get even- by burying her car in snow.
Rick and Morty is set to return to screens sometime soon, so fans need to prepare their eyeballs for all the muliverse madness, all the Meeseeks mayhem, and all those surprising twists that make us yell "WTF?!" at the TV screen.
Because there's never been another TV show, animated or otherwise, like the Rick and Morty TV show, and fans tune in to have their minds blown out of their skulls by all the madcap plots Harmon & Roiland create.

It's really hard to catch every horror movie that comes out in a year, and even harder to hunt down great new films when you have to hack your way through so many crappy horror flicks to find the choice cuts.
Add the international releases and the search becomes way too bloody tough, so rather than going mad reading movie reviews you should check out this list of 10 Horror Movies You Missed In 2016 and go global.
Love them or hate them, at least hipster bartenders know how to make delicious cocktails (even if they are way overpriced) but it's safe to say robots won't be replacing human bartenders anytime soon.
That's because robots just don't have the finesse and flair to sling drinks, and they make horrible conversationalists because they don't possess an empathy chip.
There are a few robots out there who can effectively pour a pint of beer, but they clearly weren't built by roboteer Simone Giertz- because her beer-pourin' bot can't even set the glass down without shattering it! (NSFW language)
If you hear tap-tap-tapping at your window and creaky cracking sounds go turn on your heater and steel your nerves- because you've got an ice ghost outside your window looking to chill you to the bone.
Ice ghosts are hard to spot until they're fully formed, but the photo above should help you spot that spirited chunk of ice before it breaks in and wraps you in death's cold embrace.
And if you're thinking about doing some barbecuing during the winter months but your barbecue has been sitting outside you'd better call an exorcist first...
