Tom Hardy Stopped A Motorcycle Robbery In London Like A Total Badass

It should be pretty obvious by now that Tom Hardy isn't acting like a badass in movies like Mad Max and The Dark Knight Rises- he's a real life badass who also happens to be a really good actor.

So when he's in London and some punks try to make off with a stolen motorcycle Tom doesn't just stand and watch, he switches into action hero mode and helps apprehend the perps.

Cops in Richmond, south-west London report Tom helped nab two teens who crashed the bike they stole into a car, and “He looked as mad as he does on telly" while wrapping up the perps:

The two suspected thieves were 16 years old and crashed the bike into a car, apparently earning the attention of Hardy according to The Independent and The Sun.

The Hollywood star looked like he “switched into superhero mode” as he collared the man before checking him for weapons after the chase near his home in Richmond, south-west London, an onlooker told The Sun.

According to the newspaper, Hardy explained “I caught the c***t” shortly after finding the man.

The BBC quotes witness Arun Pullen in their take on the events, providing a clearer picture of how things went down:

“Tom must have been walking down the road.

“He went off like a shot in pursuit and looked furious.

“I asked Tom what happened and he told me he chased him through my back garden and caught him around the block – but the route was like an assault course.”

“Tom Hardy’s clearly not a man you’d mess with,” Pullen continued. “I think he even checked the kid’s ID before cops took over . . . If the kid had been dumb enough to resist I reckon Tom would have given him a good hiding.”

Mad Scientist Builds A 200-Watt Laser Bazooka That Can Shoot Through A Computer Case

If you mess with science you may find yourself on the wrong end of a laser beam designed to burn right through whatever gets in its way and powerful enough to shoot through a computer case.

So be nice to Drake Anthony (aka styropro) if you ever meet him, because he built a 200-watt laser bazooka out of "scrap metal, a pile of broken ‘hybrid’ DLP projectors, and runs on a stack of lithium polymer batteries" and he ain't afraid to use it.

Indoor Plants That Are Hard To Kill

Those lucky nature lovers who have a green thumb make growing and caring for plants look easy, but what can a brown thumb do to turn their bad luck with plants around and bring some living green into their homes?

They can buy an indoor plant that's hard to kill, like the bold and beautiful bromeliad, which likes to be in temperatures around 70 degrees and produces shoots that replace the original plant.

But if the bromeliad is too flashy for you then you may want to start with the basics- the spider plant, the dieffenbachia and the calathea:

The spider plant only needs to be watered once a week, and its shoots produce babies that can be repotted so you can have as many spider plants in your home as you'd like.

The dieffenbachia is happy with filtered light and doesn't need regular watering, and the calathea or "peacock plant" thrives in low light and simply needs to be kept moist, so

Wives Who Have Turned Pranking Into An Artform

(Image Link)

Most of the spousal pranking stories you see online involve husbands pranking wives, which is usually more of a jump scare scenario than an actual prank and therefore has become a bit of a cliche.

(Image Link)

So what's the wife of a wiseguy to do when her husband calls her a "sandwich maker"? She gets mad, and then she gets even:

(Image Link)

Wives have proven to be far more creative pranksters than all those jump scare lovin' guys out there, so if you're married to a pranky wife you'd better keep your eyes peeled!

I'm Not Weird You're Weird

The line between normal and abnormal has become far too thin, and some people are so afraid of being seen as different and strange they worry about doing normal stuff in public in case they're seen.

But as far as I'm concerned if you're at a game cheer loudly, if you're in the smoking section then light up, and if you stink please slap some deodorant on immediately! (comic via Jakes Likes Onions)

Iconic Comic Book Images Recreated In The Movies

Every time a director helms a new superhero project they put their own spin on that hero's origin story, but no matter how far they stray from the source material they still include some nod to the original.

Action Comics #1 features the most iconic cover art of all time- Superman lifting a car, a scene featured in 1978's Superman and Bryan Singer's Superman Returns, which is an homage to Richard Donner's original Superman films from the 80s.

(YouTube Link)

But the cover of Captain America Comics #1, featuring Cap punching out Hitler, is arguably just as famous, so why didn't it get a proper recreation in the Captain America movie?

Because the writers and director of 2011's Captain America: The First Avenger chose Red Skull and Hydra as Cap's main foes, so including Hitler and the Nazis would just confuse the plot of future Marvel movies.

Ridiculous Myths About The Middle Ages That Need To Die

Thanks to pop culture people assume everyone but the royals smelled like crap in the Middle Ages, knights were heroic figures who kept the kingdom safe for common folk, and scientific progress went boink thanks to the church.

But historical evidence shows these notions are pure myth, and the Middle Ages were both cleaner and dirtier than we've been told.

(Image Link)

Heard the one about the stinky serfs?

Working in the fields all day does make you grimy, but people in the Middle Ages continued the Roman tradition of taking communal baths, and there were even baths made just for workers and craftsmen.

They washed up before and after eating, offered to bathe with guests to be polite, and went through nearly as much soap as we do today:

Medieval demand for soap (usually made from animal fats, with a variety of oils and salts added) was so great that by the 13th century, soap was being made on an almost industrial scale in Britain, Italy, Spain, and France.

Folks kept clean until the Black Plague made them afraid to bathe, believing that bathing opened the pores and thereby made it easier to become infected by the Plague.

Now if you want to see dirty you need look no further than the knights, who were less chivalrous heroes and more ruthless gangs of greedy mercenaries who cured their between war boredom with bloodshed:

Toward the 11th century, many of the local lords started bickering over who would get a slice of the Holy Roman pie that Charlemagne baked, and the knights were at the forefront of these petty wars. These "wars" were less Braveheart-style epic battles and more knights rolling up into villages and slaughtering everybody.

The chivalric code was introduced in the 13th century in order to keep these angry young warriors in line, but the code said nothing about defending peasants so the slaughter continued.

(Image Link)

And lastly we discuss science in the Middle Ages- since many religious groups are anti-science these days we assume Medieval monks were anti-science too.

But the Catholic church actually saved science, and much of the scientific knowledge recorded by the Romans, from being destroyed by invading barbarians:

The church went about setting up monasteries across Europe, and along with the monks came the monks' massive libraries. Monks were just about the only educated people in the early Middle Ages, and pretty much everything we know about this entire time period was written by them.

As time went on, the church stepped it up a notch and started establishing universities to foster the preservation of knowledge. You may have heard of a few of them: Oxford, Cambridge, and the University of Paris (not to mention pretty much every other top school in Europe).

Medicine also made massive advances thanks to the university system. Contrary to popular belief, dissection of corpses was actually fine and dandy with the church, and medieval universities often did it in the basement (OK, so maybe it wasn't totally fine and dandy). By the 14th century, there were functional hospitals, and doctors had learned how to use antiseptic when lopping off people's body parts.

The Invisible Art Of Visual Effects

Visual effects in films are composed and constructed just like any other work of art, but there's one big difference- in order for the VFX in movies to be effective they must be so subtle you think the effects are real.

And if you think you're an expert at spotting viz fx consider this- nearly every movie made these days features some sort of digital fx compositing, from sets to weather effects to the vehicles driving by in the background.

VFX Games - The Art of Compositing from Roy Peker on Vimeo.

This eye opening video by Roy Peker gently tears back the layers of digital deception to show us what often lies beneath each frame of film, namely an actor on a green screen set.

Dog Eats Banana- The Shocking Video Footage

Some dogs will do backflips for bacon, others will sit and shake paws all day long for tasty bits of human food, but those dogs are missing the boat because you get a whole lot more treat if you go gaga for bananas.

And since the little pooch in this video looks so darn cute while eating a banana he probably gets a treat any time he wants, which hopefully means we'll get to see him in more utterly adorable videos in the future!

Photos From The Set Of The Original Twin Peaks

Part of me never left David Lynch's eerie town of Twin Peaks after watching the series in the early 90s, and now that the series is coming back for eighteen more episodes that Twin Peaks feeling is coming back strong too.

But simply rewatching the series and Fire Walk With Me just isn't enough to satisfy my appetite for small town Lynchian strangeness, I needed these damn fine photos from the set to silence my inner Bob.

Seeing all my old friends from Twin Peaks again has caused quite a few memories to resurface, including those "they won't be on the new episodes because they're dead!" moments that make me wanna smile-cry.

How Much Would Superheroes' NYC Apartments Cost?

Being a superhero typically isn't a paid gig, which is why even famous superheroes like Superman and Spider-Man have to keep their day jobs as journalists.

Clark Kent lives in the fictional city of Metropolis, so there's no telling how much rent he pays, but could Spider-Man actually afford to live in New York City on his salary from the Daily Bugle?

And what about our new favorite friends from Harlem and Hell's Kitchen Matt Murdock (Daredevil), Luke Cage and Jessica Jones?

ForRent.com created this slick infographic that reveals how much Marvel superheroes would pay for their apartments around NYC, as well as some trivia related to the real life equivalent of each location.

Therapy Donkey Helps A Special Needs Girl Speak Again

Some people believe the whole therapy animal thing is out of control, but if you think about it the "therapy" most of these animals provide involves calming and comforting a person, so just about any animal can provide therapy.

Just ask little Amber Austwick and she'll tell you- a donkey makes a fine therapy animal, and her hoofed friend Shock from The Donkey Sanctuary in Birmingham, England actually helped her speak again.

In 2011 Amber was born prematurely and couldn't breathe, so doctors gave her a tracheotomy that left her mute due to vocal chord scarring. Amber was also born with cerebral palsy, making the first few years of her life a struggle for the poor little girl.

But then she met Shocks the donkey, who changed her life with his gentle charm:

"She struggled to sit up and showed no signs of crawling 'til very late on," Julian Austwick, Amber's father, told The Dodo. "A friend mentioned The Donkey Sanctuary to Tracy [Amber's mother] and told her the donkeys can give therapy to additional needs children, so we decided to try it."

It was Amber's first time meeting a therapy animal — and, as it happened, Amber was Shocks's first patient. And when he met Amber, the connection was instantaneous.

"It was fairly immediate to see they had a bond together, as they were both so gentle with each other," Austwick said. "Shocks would lower his head to her and would allow her to hold him around his neck. It was scary for us, as parents, as he was so big compared to little Amber, but they really seemed smitten!"

Finally, when Amber turned 3, she was old enough for another surgery to make it possible for her to talk — but it would take practice.

She still hadn't said a word when she went to visit Shocks one day in November 2013. After taking a ride with him and getting ready to leave the sanctuary to go home, she hugged the donkey and said, "I love you, Shocky."

So there you have it- donkeys actually make pretty great therapy animals, and unlike a dogs or cats you get to ride them too!

Guy Demonstrates The Method He Used To Train His Cat To Walk On A Leash

I once semi-successfully trained my cat to walk around my backyard on a leash- he would walk around okay for a while, and even climb trees here and there while tethered to me below. But you could tell he was holding back, and it only made him want to run away more when the leash was off.

My mission to leash my cat would have been more successful had I watched these videos by Doug Meyers of Berkeley, California, and then I could have taken my cat everywhere just like he does.

(YouTube Link)

Doug's videos reveal how he trained his Ragdoll cat Eduardo to walk on a leash by taking him out of his comfort zone:

Using a knapsack was my key discovery in getting Eduardo to go for long walks. He was reluctant to walk away from his home territory. He was uncomfortable doing that it was a hard direction for him to walk in. The easy direction is toward home. By using the knapsack I carry Eduardo away from his home territory and when I put him down he has a natural goal or purpose for his walk, which is to get home. Once I began using the knapsack to carry him, he started to walk almost like a well-trained dog, moving right along

(YouTube Link)

Man, strolling around Berkeley in the spring with a cat on a leash, life does not get much more chill than that!

Wolverine's Wildest Offspring

Wolverine's offspring have proven to be an entertaining cast of characters who give their dad a run for his money in terms of ferocity and bloodthirst only most of 'em ain't as nice as Logan, bub.

Daken is a lot like his dad only without the warmth or human compassion, and the first time he met Wolverine he slashed his old man's stomach open and left him to die.

Daken's one scary dude but he looks like a choir boy compared to Raze Darkholme- offspring of Wolverine and Mystique.

Raze can shapeshift, has bone claws, an incredible healing factor and heightened senses, and since his power level rivals that of his parents he keeps them both looking over their shoulders Did I mention Raze is also a time traveler?

Poor Wolverine can't seem to win with his angsty mutant offsprings, but there's one kid who actually loved and cared for Wolvie during the post-apocalyptic Old Man Logan storyline- Hulk Jr.:

After Old Man Logan wipes out the Hulk Gang, he rides off into the sunset with the last surviving member of Bruce Banner’s family, his grandson Hulk Jr., who also happened to be Banner’s favorite. Logan forsakes his former identity as the Wolverine and becomes the Hooded Man, raising Hulk Jr. to be a force for good. Together, they retake the United States, joining with the Fantastic Four and other heroes to form the New Defenders.

Pastor Finds Massive 706-Carat Diamond In Sierra Leone Mine

There are people willing to enslave, exploit and kill other humans without a second thought for a fistful of diamonds, so imagine what they would do to get their hands on a 706-carat diamond worth millions.

That's the dilemma pastor Emmanuel Momoh faced when he discovered the monster diamond in an artisanal mine in Sierra Leone, and knowing the discovery put his life in danger he gave it to the government for safe keeping:

According to The Guardian, the government said that Emmanuel Momoh found the gem in an artisanal mine in the village of Koyadu within the diamond-rich Kono region. It weighs in at 706 carats. The stone was presented on Thursday and will be sold in a government-held transparent auction in the Sierra Leone to benefit the community.

"I have to help the government and my people, so all of us can benefit," presidential spokesman Abdulai Bayraytay quoted Momoh as saying.

The diamond still needs to be analyzed by experts, but it's probable that it's among the largest, behind the 3,106-carat Cullian diamond and a 1,111-carat diamond discovered in 2015. Diamond expert Paul Zimnisky told the AFP news agency that it could possibly rank "between the 10th and 15th largest dem-diamonds ever recovered."

Tiny Dancers Among Us

Children usually dance, play and explore the world with reckless abandon, but when kids are serious about developing a skill like dancing they become far more focused than they ever have while sitting in class.

And even though they know their bodies may someday change into a less flexible form they keep practicing anyway, pushing their tiny bodies to the limit to express their love of dance.

Photographer Jordan Matter likes to shoot pics of dancers in motion, and his latest series Tiny Dancers Among Us shows us kids may not have the choreography down pat but they're able to soar much higher than most adult dancers.

Black And White Photos Of Famous People On Skateboards

Lots of people ride a skateboard when they're young only to give up sidewalk surfing when they become adults, but the truly passionate will keep on skating until their dying day.

Just look at how much fun Pete Townshend is having on his skate, and he's skating after becoming rich and famous so you know he's still riding to this day!

Okay, there's no evidence online to prove that Pete still skates but he sure liked to shred back in the day, I wonder if he and John Lennon ever got together for a skate session? Imagine that!

The Robbery Is A Single Take Dark Comedy Short About Armed Robbery Gone Wrong

People who are desperate enough to attempt an armed robbery often feel like they have nothing left to lose in their lives so they're not afraid to take whatever they want at gunpoint.

The dumbest and most desperate criminals are those who steal to feed their addiction, because they're too high or low to think about the consequences of their actions.

The Robbery is a dark comedy short by Jim Cummings and Dustin Hahn that was shot in one take to capture the feeling of confusion and chaos as things go wrong during an armed robbery. (NSFW language)

Former Students Share Stories About What Got Them Expelled From College

(Image Link)

It's not uncommon for college students to wind up on academic probation if they spend too much time partying, which usually makes them clean up their act and study hard again so they don't get kicked out.

(Via CatPawSoup)

But some people simply do not belong at a university, or for that matter any place where there are other people!

(Via VaginaDangerous)

Not every explulsion story involves drugs, booze and/or degenerate behavior, because believe it or not sometimes students get expelled for not following the rules of a college they shouldn't be attending in the first place. Rule of thumb- if you're not Mormon then you probably shouldn't be going to BYU.

(Via JunkAcount123)

Redditor innout7 asked their fellow oversharers "Expelled college students of Reddit, why are you expelled?" and they got some pretty tasty responses. Because what's campus life without a little ice cream and Greensleeves at 2 a.m.?

I was expelled from all college residences for stumbling home from the pub, finding an unlocked door in the food hall, taking 3 10 litre tubs of icecream and going around on a bike blasting Greensleeves pretending to be an ice-cream truck at 2am. (Via Music_Is_Crap)

Simply Endearing Comic Strips About The Joy And Pain Of Relationships

Every relationship has its share of joy and pain, with bouts of swooning, sadness and giddy glee, but mostly there is talking and sharing and caring, so if that's not your cup of tea then Tuna Dunn's comics may not appeal to you.

But you might want to take a quick glance at Tuna's comics anyway, and please forgive the Thai artist's grammatical errors, because they'll show you what you've been missing.

If you've been on the relationship ride more than a few times then Tuna's comics will remind you of your current love or an ex, and if the ride makes you sick then Tuna's comics will make you sick too.

But, as every good relationshipper knows, you've got to be a little sick to stay with somebody who loves you this much!

Beloved TV Characters Who Are Really Bad People

Whenever fans develop strong feelings for a pop culture character they start to feel like that character can do no wrong, because every choice they make and action they take is just character development.

But if you put the fan feels aside and actually look at what these characters have done during their storylines they start to look like really bad people.

Characters like Spike from Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel started out evil, and made no bones about their allegiance to the dark side, but there's evil and then there's staking your own mother evil.

Spike is scary and all, and I wouldn't want to be on the wrong end of Tyrion's crossbow, but sometimes the scariest and most dangerous characters look like harmless dimwits.

Russian Grandma Teaches People How To Use A Green Screen

People don't look to their grandmas for advice on how to up their digital art game, since most grandmas seem to have a hard time understanding how to use the computer let alone software with a steep learning curve.

But Russian grandma and Chroma Key guru Tatiana Subbotina has a good handle on the whole digital video editing game, and she's sharing her advice with the world in the weirdest way possible.

(YouTube Link)

Even though the videos don't really give much usable advice on video editing they're really fun to watch, and Tatiana seems to really enjoy making them:

Subbotina spoke to BuzzFeed saying, “I decided that I too could talk about this [editing videos]. So I started making stories on my YouTube channel about how I work with it. I didn’t invent anything there, but I try to explain it as simply as possible. It’s very exciting and I like it.”

How To Put On A Sweater With Minimal Disturbance To The Cat Around Your Neck

You may think it's a good and fun idea to teach your cat how to perch on your shoulders and wrap around your neck, but the fun quickly wears off when you discover you can't shake off your new fur collar.

Musician Roger Brawn made the mistake of letting his cat Spiggy perch without making him sign a lease, and now Spiggy refuses to vacate Roger's shoulders.

But Roger seems to enjoy having a Spiggy-shaped scarf wrapped around his neck, so much so that he has figured out a way to put on a jumper without disturbing that spoiled shoulder dweller.

How To Prepare Jake's Perfect Sandwich From Adventure Time

Jake is half dog, half shapeshifter, and he has the magical ability to stretch his body into nearly any shape and size, which means he could devour a Dagwood sandwich better than Scooby Doo if he wanted to.

But Jake's also a dog with refined tastes, so when he crafts a sandwich you can be sure his creation will taste totally mathematical.

(YouTube Link)

So what do you need to make Jake's perfect sandwich? A whole loaf of bread, a sous vide steak, a deboned cornish game hen, bacon, cream cheese, a bunch of other stuff and, most importantly, a lobster's soul.

Andrew Rea isn't the only human who has ever attempted to recreate Jake's perfect sandwich, but the monstrosity he creates on this episode of Binging With Babish actually looks drool worthy!

Woman Sends Guy A Detailed PowerPoint On Why He Should Date Her

These days you can tell somebody you have feelings for them in many different ways, as emails and text messages have replaced the written note and eliminated the need for a face-to-face.

But take it from University of Minnesota student Lizzy Fenton- telling your crush how you feel about them with a PowerPoint presentation may not go over very well unless they're as big a .ppt nerd as you are.

Lizzy sent this droll and very detailed PowerPoint presentation titled Why You Should Date Me to a guy named Carter she had a crush on, but Carter didn't dig the details so he turned poor Lizzy down.

However, people who saw Lizzy's presentation online claim she made them swoon, and a rep from Microsoft even reached out to Lizzy to applaud her efforts.

But in the end Lizzy was left with nothing but a wounded heart and a restraining order from Channing Tatum.

There has always been something sinister about Elmo's squeaky clean and innocent facade, but until that little bugger is caught and dissected to see what he's actually made of we'll just have to keep on wondering.

For #ScienceMobile that wondering led to performing surgery on a Tickle Me Elmo doll, which is the only test subject they had that is similar enough to teach us anything about Elmo anatomy.

The Origin Of The World's Most Famous Tongue Twister

"She Sells Sea Shells By The Sea Shore" is arguably the most famous tongue twister in the world, and even though the tongue twister itself dates back to around 1908 the true story it's based on is much older.

The "she" in the rhyme is Mary Anning from Dorset, England, who dug up fossils along the coast and sold them to tourists during the first half of the 19th century.

Digging up fossils was a family business, one which Mary took over when her father passed away in 1810, and even though the fossil trade was booming she struggled to make money because each fossil took her so long to dig up.

(Image Link)

Now, thanks to the tongue twister, Mary is known for selling sea shells even though she should be far more famous for her contributions to paleontology, a branch of science which was very young in her day.

And speaking of young- Mary was just 12-years-old when she and her brother dug up the skull of a four-foot Ichthyosaur and gained international fame among fossil enthusiasts:

This discovery came decades before Darwin first published his model of evolution, at a time when most people were still ignorant of the earth’s ancient past. Most scientists believed that animals did not go extinct: they would instead migrate to a location more suited to their needs.

When Anning’s discovery was put on display, it created a considerable buzz among scientists and brought Anning to the attention of the wider community of archaeologists. By 1820, Anning was running a modestly successful fossil business and was working in collaboration with other geologists, finding a number of important fossils in the process.

A famous geologist, Henry De la Beche, created illustrations of ancient life forms in their natural habitat based on the fossils unearthed by Anning. This created some revenue which La Beche generously donated to Anning; yet despite this new-found fame, she continued to struggle financially.

People On The News Who Are Clearly High On Life

The number "420" has been adopted by marijuana enthusiasts the world over and is thought to have originated in 1971 with a group of buddies from San Rafael high school in California who called themselves "The Waldos".

And even though many stoners have lost sight of the number's origin story they all agree that April 20th is the (un)official day of cannabis celebration, when everyone is in high spirits. 

But the people in these news clips don't need to smoke weed to act like total stoners, because they're so high on life it hurts to think! Must be something in the air...
