To call Goku a superhero would be an insult because he's so much more than that- he's a Saiyan with god-like physical abilities and a power level that measures over 9000, so mere superheroes wouldn't stand a chance against him.
And yet most comic book fans won't accept the fact that their favorite superfolks would get owned by Goku until they see it for themselves, so let's see it play out Street Fighter style in this short by GamebillStudio.
Some dogs simply adore their toys, dragging them around the house and cuddling up with them in their beds, but as a rule dogs don't dig toys that bark back at them.
So be forewarned-giving a dog a toy that makes noises and moves on its own can lead to confusion, anger and some very precious moments, so you'd better have your camera ready just in case.
Japanese Twitter user @daifuku_channel shared this adorable video featuring a Shiba Inu who has a hilarious reaction when her toy barks back at her. She can't decide whether she hates the toy or loves it!
There's definitely something for everyone on the internet in terms of humor, and the days of people with a nerdy sense of humor struggling to find stuff to LOL at are long gone thanks to the endless stream of cutting edge comedy online.
And as you can see internet humor doesn't get much more niche than math memes, featuring jokes with punchlines only the mathematically minded can truly appreciate. Can somebody please explain why this is funny?
The more time you spend around sharks the less they seem like mindless eating machines, and people who actually get to like sharks will go out of their way to save a shark's life whenever possible.
But you've gotta be mighty brave, and very comfortable with sharks, to grab one with your bare hands and hoist it out of the water, even if it is just a little ankle biter.
The lady in this clip went for a dip in a Cronulla rock pool in Sydney and found a shark swimming around in there, but instead of letting it ruin her good time she earned the nickname "Shark Lady"- by grabbing the little biter, hoisting it out of the water and tossing it back into the ocean.
Work in the same area for years and you're bound to see the same faces during your daily commute, especially if you work a 9 to 5 job in a big city.
And even though you may exchange little more than a nod and a "good morning" with these people their faces become very familiar, almost as familiar as those of your friends and family because you see your fellow workers every day.
Danish photographer Peter Funch visited the corner of 42nd Street and Vanderbilt in NYC between the hours of 8:30 and 9:30 a.m. on weekdays from 2007 to 2016 and noticed one consistent thing- the same people going to work each day.
Some of these 9 to 5ers were so consistent they actually wore the same outfits, hair styles and walked next to the same people over the 9 year period, becoming the symbols of consistency in the workplace.
Watch any of the old Hanna-Barbera cartoons with the sound turned off and those wacky shows will be far less entertaining, and not just because the characters seem extra flat without their dialog and catchphrases.
No, the main thing you'll be missing are those zany sound effects, the sound of animated hilarity that takes you back to those formative years when cartoons became a big part of your life, or maybe it's just me.
Former Hanna-Barbera sound editor Paul Douglas made some interesting picks for his top 10 sound effects list, like Muttley biting Dick Dastardly on the butt and El Kabong's guitar hit, and these iconic sounds will take you back, way, way back.
For some reason Paul's top ten sound effects list didn't include that iconic scrabbling sound Hanna-Barbera cartoons made whenever they ran, so here it is. I wish I could make noises like that when I run...
I've never thought of black cats as omens of bad luck because I grew up in a household that valued the life of all kitties, and people for that matter, regardless of fur or skin color.
Plus I've owned a few black cats over the years, and the way I see it they can't bring bad luck to their owners or else witches and warlocks wouldn't keep them around.
But, as this War And Peas comic shows, the superstition may have originated when the first person who thought such a dumb thing pointed at a black cat and yelled "bad luck!" That really pisses cats off...
Marvel's giant intergalactic planet muncher Galactus and Jim Davis' lasagna lovin' cat Garfield have a lot in common despite the fact that they exist in radically different cartoon universes with different levels of detail.
They both think with their stomachs and let their appetites get them in trouble, they can both be a bit surly if you wake them up before noon, and now they've both been drawn by Jim Davis thanks to an upcoming Marvel comic written by Ryan North:
Issue #26 of Unbeatable Squirrel Girl will be styled as a zine made by Squirrel Girl and her super-powered peers, with different artists providing styles for different heroes-turned-artists. The roster includes none other than Garfield creator Jim Davis, who illustrated a story from the perspective of Galactus.
North wrote the story, which Davis illustrated with the help of his assistants Gary Barker and Dan Davis. The strip basically uses Galactus as a stand-in for Garfield, and his herald the Silver Surfer as a stand-in for Jon Arbuckle.
Here's a sneak peek of Jim Davis' Galactus story, Unbeatable Squirrel Girl #26 hits stores November 8th:
Gremlins is a visually striking film, with lots of fantastic and unforgettable scenes that continue to inspire filmmakers and artists like Kevin M. Wilson when they're looking to create an homage to (monster) movies.
Kevin chose the scene in Mr. Wing's shop (where Billy's dad Randall bought Gizmo) as inspiration for this illustration full of hidden movie references, which seems logical since the place was full of cool stuff to look at.
There are a 84 pop culture references hidden in this awesome artwork, from the fairly obvious Freddy Kreuger's Glove and ORCA Panel at the top of the piece to the harder to find Chucky doll to the tiny and impossible to find Demogorgon Miniature.
You'd think candles would be hotheads on account of their wicks, or total drips on account of their melty nature, but according to this animated short entitled Once Upon A Candle they're actually happy-go-lucky to the bitter end.
But once they've lit up our lives for a while, and their tall taper has been reduced to a bumpy nub, the spark sorta goes out of their personality and that existential angst starts to set in.
Telling spooky stories around a campfire (or flashlight if you're indoors) is a Halloween tradition that keeps the art of storytelling alive in an age when kids would rather stare at a screen than talk to each other.
And if you really want to shock the kids of today who have been exposed to all kinds of terrible stuff online you've gotta tell them a true story, one which they can verify via Google to make it extra shocking.
Start 'em off with the source of an urban legend about tainted Halloween candy:
In 1974, 8-year-old Timothy O’Bryan died on Halloween evening after eating candy laced with cyanide. But the story has an even more horrific twist.
It turned out the candy was poisoned by Timmy’s father, Ronald, who was in financial trouble and had taken out insurance policies on his children. In addition to Timmy, Ronald O’Bryan gave poisoned candy to four other children, including his daughter, Elizabeth. Thankfully, none of them ate it. O’Bryan was executed by lethal injection in 1984.
Then you can hit 'em with a tale about a suicide mistaken for a Halloween decoration:
In 2005, a 42-year-old woman in Delaware committed suicide by hanging herself from a tree across the street from a residential area. Though the body was easily visible to passersby and passing vehicles, no one called the police for hours. Why? They assumed the woman swaying in the wind was a Halloween decoration.
And once they're good and scared thanks to these two true stories you can introduce the idea of a killer-at-large who wears a Ghostface mask and make sure they never sleep again!:
In Scream, killers wearing Ghostface masks callously murdered the people in their town. Chillingly, on Halloween night, 2013, someone wearing the same Ghostface mask shot and killed 19-year-old Anthony Seaberry before disappearing into the New York night.
Whenever people discuss the deadliest animals in North America they mention rattlesnakes, bears and, if they're coastal, sharks, but nobody talks about the fact that deer kill more people each year than bears, snakes and sharks combined.
Deer-related deaths are presumably largely due to car accidents but the fact remains deer, and horses and cows for that matter, kill way more people each year than you'd expect.
These illustrated charts by Man Vs. Beast show us which critters kill the most people each year, as well as your odds of being killed by an animal and the most common animal-related death by state.
Knowing this could possibly cause a time paradox and erase his timeline Conor chose to use the power of Photoshop instead of a time machine, so he can safely travel back in time to the years 1997-2005 and kick it with kid Conor.
Now Conor can say he was the coolest kid in town because he was best friends with a grown up who was the coolest dude in town, and both of them share the name Conor Nickerson.
The films of Italian director Dario Argento are hard to classify because they don't fit neatly into any one genre- on the one hand they're definitely full of horror elements, but films like Profondo Rosso (Deep Red) could be considered Crime Thrillers.
The Italians call this Horror-Thriller genre "giallo", and Argento's masterfully crafted giallo films are a cut above the rest because the mystery keeps you guessing until the bloody end while the realistic gore makes you squirm in your seat.
In fact, some of the posters created for Dario Argento films like Tenebre, Two Evil Eyes and Deep Red are so disturbingly bloody we can't show them here so here's a really cool artsy one instead, created by artist Matt Ryan for a UK screening of Suspiria.
Clutter clusters often form in our medicine cabinets, where all those products that promise to make our skin look better, teeth look whiter and fix our split ends reside. But as many of us have learned the hard way these products rarely deliver on their promises, and some do more harm than good.
Those pore strips and masks people keep slapping on their faces pull out hair follicles and sebaceous filaments which are supposed to stay in our pores, so using them can actually give you worse acne as well as spider veins.
Ask any hairstylist and they'll tell you- the best way to fix split ends is by getting a trim, not by slapping some product in your hair that ultimately does little more than make your hair greasy.
But the worst offenders are the sunscreen lotions, which promise to keep us safe from harmful UV rays but actually don't protect our skin as well as they claim:
The Environmental Working Group did a massive study of over 900 different sunscreen products, and uncovered some shocking results. The group found that 3/4 of sunscreens don't protect you as well as they claim on the bottle.
Separate research by Consumer Reports found that almost 40% of suntan lotions are half as strong as they claim to be. You can check if your brand is lying to you here, and look for brands that say they meet clinical guidelines for their SPF.
Falconry is an ancient hunting tradition that dates back to at least 2000 B.C., and while most hunters no longer need to rely on birds of prey to help them catch their dinner falconers still have plenty for their talented birds to do- like guard crops.
32-year-old Master Falconer Justin uses his well trained winged friends to guard some of America's most valuable fruit crops from nuisance birds who want to greedily gobble them all up, and his job seems like one of the coolest jobs in America!
The thought of anything crawling out of our toilets makes our skin crawl, and not just because of the germs, so if you really can't handle the sight of something emerging from a toilet then please move on to the next post now.
Those of you still with us prepare to hear a gross story about the strange creature that crawled out of a Malaysian family's toilet:
Zul Hanif Anip, 25, said he and his wife, Puteri, were home Friday in Alor Setar when the creature emerged from the toilet and slowly slithered around their home.
Anip said the creature's proportions, a small head with a thick body, did not match any local snakes that he was familiar with.
''I think the creature grew up inside the pipe works connected to the toilet hole, because I have checked and there is no entry point for it to have got inside," Anip said. ''He was about two meters [6.5 feet] long with a very fat, thick body. I'm not sure if it was a snake or a kind of tidal creature or from the swamp."
''It's head was very small and it had a short tail, which did not look like a snake," he said.
Here's video footage of the creature crawling across the floor after emerging from the toilet, thankfully the footage is too blurry to make out what the creature looks like or we'd never be able to sleep again!
Minecraft is still driving the kiddies wild, and it must be set to overtake Pac-Man and Super Mario Bros. as the video game gateway drug that has gotten the most kids hooked on gaming.
Kiddies tend to play Minecraft in Adventure or Survival mode, but the talented folks who entered their Minecraft sculptures in the Apex Events 2017 Invitational go full blown Creative mode on an epic scale.
This amazing digital sculpture by Dr. Bond entitled "The Perfect Marionette" was the winner of the 2017 Invitational- it took Dr. Bond four days to build and is made of millions of blocks to capture that Rococo feel.
Runner up AWAKENING - Null Bomb is made of millions of blocks too, but in this case they're spread out to form an entire futuristic cityscape. No word on how long it took the artist to build AWAKENING, but you don't build cool digital cities like that overnight!
DC Comics has created some of the biggest, baddest and most iconic supervillains of all time, and even though many heroes in the DC Universe bear a striking resemblance to Marvel superheroes the villains are in a class all their own.
The Joker is arguably the most famous comic book villain of all time, and everyone is familiar with his never-ending battle with the Batman because they are the yin-yang of the comic book world. But what about Ra's al Ghul?
His battle against Batman has become much more well known since the Dark Knight movies and his inclusion in DC shows like Arrow, but Ra's will never usurp The Joker because Ra's lacks his clowny charm.
And speaking of clowny and charming- Harley Quinn began as a secondary character on Batman: The Animated Series but has since become one of the most popular, and fun, supervillains in the DC Universe.
Her secret? Equal parts madness, cuteness and a bloodthirsty zeal for battle, plus her sick relationship with Mister J didn't hurt. Well, maybe a little...
These days children are being introduced to tech gadgets like tablets and smartphones at an earlier age than ever before, and I constantly see parents appeasing their toddlers by allowing them to stare at their smartphones.
So it's only a matter of time before toddlers figure out how to create their own Facebook accounts on mommy's smartphone, and according to this hilarious Toddler Facebook mockup from mommyshorts their posts will be hilarious to read.
Even though they'll have to pretend to be at least 13 years old we'll know the truth, especially when they talk about naps, forgetting people's names and pooping in the bathtub...on second thought it'll be just like when really old people post on Facebook!
Kids shows are by default supposed to be free of adult content, and if scary moments arise they should be immediately followed with lighthearted fun to keep the kiddies from getting scared of the show.
But as soon as a show starts targeting a somewhat older audience they begin to introduce mature themes they couldn't include before, which leads to the creation of some absolutely horrifying episodes.
Captain Planet generally kept the quest to fight polluters around the world as lighthearted as possible, but when the Planeteers faced a drug dealing scumbag named Verminous Skumm in the episode Mind Pollution things got really dark.
Verminous sells a drug called "Bliss" to a kid named Boris, a drug that turns kids into crazy zombies. Boris gets high and jumps through a window, causing him to bleeding profusely from the arms, and later after taking more Bliss he falls down dead of an overdose.
I thought Captain Planet was rated Y7, who would want their seven-year-old to see such things?
Fast food companies have figured out that posting funny videos online and creating crazy products are far more effective forms of brand advertising than television commercials or radio spots.
So while things get pretty wacky on TV they get downright ridiculous online, like high top sneakers that order pizza or a parka made out of the same stuff as a pizza delivery pouch ridiculous.
Pizza Hut is delivering their Pizza Parka to random customers who orders online, and I must admit I didn't really want one until I saw the pizza pocket inside. There just aren't enough jackets out there with pizza pockets!
Praying mantises are known for their strange alien appearance, their inspiration of a kung fu form, and the fact that females bite the male's head off and devour his body for nourishment after mating.
But did you know praying mantises also prey on birds?
Neither did I, but apparently the praying mantis has developed a taste for bird brains so they've added birds to the list of creatures they will prey upon when they're hungry.
A group of zoologists from the U.S. and Switzerland studied 147 cases hoping to find clues about this strange act of bug-on-bird predation:
The group's findings, which were recently published in the Wilson Journal of Ornithology, suggest that mantises all over the world are chowing down on unsuspecting avians. Praying mantises were observed eating 24 different bird species across 14 families. Nearly 70 percent of accounts happened in North America, where tiny hummingbirds were the most common prey. States with the highest incidents of this, according to the study, were New York, North Carolina, Texas, Arizona, and California.
"In the older literature, there are all sorts of anecdotes of mantises eating bizarre prey, such as centipedes and poisonous spiders, but these were usually 'Gladiator' encounters where investigators would throw together a mantis and another fearsome invertebrate in a jar or cage," Michael Maxwell, the study's co-author and a behavioral ecologist at National University, told me in an email.
Interestingly, this behavior was observed on every continent except Antarctica, spanning twelve mantid species—something the study's lead author Martin Nyffeler, a senior lecturer at the University of Basel, called "a spectacular discovery" in a statement.
"For many of us, the most surprising thing about the new study is the range of non-hummingbirds recorded as mantis prey," Kaufman added. "The others are all very small songbirds, but still, some of them must weigh as much as one-third of an ounce, which seems like a lot for any insect to deal with."
Weirdly, all of the mantises were identified as female. Females aren't necessarily more aggressive, but they do engage in sexual cannibalism if very hungry. Twice, female mantids were observed feeding on a bird while also mating with a male.
Halloweenies like to go big with their decorations, putting their love of the holiday on display for the entire neighborhood to see, and their hard work is either rewarded with cheers or jeers.
But there's one neighborhood in Salt Lake City, Utah that's about to go bananas thanks to the hard work of one Ammon Smith, a 33-year-old woodworker who has become known for his over-the-top Halloween displays.
Ammon used thin strips of wood and chicken wire to build King Kong's form, then he covered the form with black fabric and trash bags for its finished look.
The project took Ammon 80 to 100 hours to complete and cost him a mere $130 but the memories, and the advertising for his home design company Designs On 9th, are priceless.
Overly competitive cooking shows seem so pointless to me because the last thing I want at a restaurant is some panicked cook making the food as fast as they can while the head chef curses loudly at them.
But American competition shows are always overly aggressive, with interpersonal drama and plenty of expletives to bleep out, which is why Gordon Ramsay couldn't wait to hop across the pond and bring hell to American TV! (Comic by The Pigeon Gazette)
Wind farms provide Scotland with much of its power these days, and the Scottish Government would like to have 100% of Scotland's energy to come from renewable energy technology like wind turbines.
Before these massive turbines can be built someone has to deliver the blades to the site, and some of these blades measure 200 feet long so getting them to the site is no small feat.
However, it appears the turbine blades are in good hands, and the driver from Scottish transport company McFaydens who delivers them has figured out how to make extremely tight turns with hundreds of feet of turbine in tow.
See how Mcfadyens from Scotland makes a 90 degrees right turn with a 60 metres blade with railings on both sides on the bridge. Great to see the possibilities of the SWC Super Wing Carrier. Without, it is almost impossible to do such a transport.
What we consider low hanging fruit is a struggle for a chicken to procure, and humans take for granted how easy it is for us to simply pluck an apple off a tree and take a bite.
But an apple is quite the prize for a chicken, and well worth all the effort it takes to jump up and snatch one down off the tree, so they'll hop around all the live long day to sink their beak into that tasty fruit.
And watching a chicken at the Ashley Herb Farm in Market Harborough, Northamptonshire struggle to grab that tasty treat reminds us that we've gotta exercise if we want to eat those sweet treats!
