Some Of The Most Dangerous Toys Ever Sold

These days most toys go through rigorous safety testing before being released, and yet a few defective playthings still manage to slip through and make it into stores before they're summarily recalled.

But back in the day defective and dangerous toys were coming out left and right, and yet kids still somehow managed to survive the days of lawn darts, Slip N' Slide and Moon shoes.

(YouTube Link)

This countdown video by TheWacky doesn't include lawn darts, but it does include classic toys like Creepy Crawlers and the almighty Slip N' Slide that brought back great memories.

Oh, and when I was 10 I used a chemistry set I got for Christmas to make some kind of caustic and smoky substance that I used to get rid of a nest full of wasps in our tool shed. Good times!

Hilariously Honest Ski Trail Signs

Many people will be hitting the slopes this winter, and some of those people will even go skiing despite the fact that snowboarding is way more fun.

But whether you like shredding powder or shushing down the runs you're bound to run in to one thing while you're at the ski resort- trail signs.

They're posted everywhere to keep skiiers safe and show them where to find each trail, but these signs usually don't contain much information about what the skiier should expect on each slope.

Which is why these honest trail signs are something every ski resort should consider implementing, so that skiiers can avoid all the child-shaped hazards and hit the slope that best fits their personality.

Internet Badasses Who Are Absolutely, Positively, Most Definitely Not Lying About How Tough They Are

The anonymity afforded by the internet gives people the courage to make bold statements online they'd never say in person, acting like the things they say online will never have an impact on their real life.

And even far less anonymous social media platforms like Twitter and Facebook are full of people who have created a rich imaginary lives for themselves online- and they all seem to think they're total badasses.

A real badass knows actions speak louder than words, and they also know that making statements about your mommy after acting tough may result in your badass card being revoked.

But these internet tough guys don't care about real life badassery, they're too busy saying really hardcore stuff online so that everyone knows they're a keyboard warrior and an internet soldier, and totally not to be messed with.

The Surreal And Disturbing Paintings Of George Tooker

Some paintings transport the viewer to exotic and beautiful places, giving them a feeling of serenity and a sense of wonder, but if that's the feeling you're looking for then the paintings of George Tooker probably won't appeal to you.

However, if you appreciate both darkness and light, unafraid to embrace the horror and anxiety caused by human existence because they make us appreciate the serenity and beauty even more then take a trip into a Tooker painting.

George Tooker was born and raised in New York in the early 20th century, and his paintings reflect the uneasiness, alienation and depression felt by many in the wake of World War II, as people struggled to find their purpose in the post-modern world.

Wheel Of Fortune Fails Compilation

Wheel Of Fortune isn't the most difficult game show on TV, so you don't have to be a brainiac to win as long as you can choose the right letters to buy and complete the puzzle before your opponents.

But some people end up losing in the stupidest way possible- like mispronouncing simple words while solving the puzzle or choosing a final letter that would complete a super racist word.

The answer is "Clam Digger", there's no "N" in either word! Talk about your effed up Freudian slips...

Artist Illustrates Funny Conversations He Has Overheard

It's supposedly rude to eavesdrop on other people's conversations, but where are you going to hear inane rambling, deranged conspiracy theories or conversations so vapid they lower your IQ if you don't eavesdrop?

Writers, artists and other students of human nature love to eavesdrop because it gives them real life reference for their works, and illustrator Avner Geller has heard so many stupid and funny conversations he decided to start drawing them all.

Avner calls his project #ThingsThatIHear, and it all started with a real-life first world problem he overheard in the wild:

The idea for “#ThingsThatiHear” arrived when I was visiting a cookware store in Los Angeles. A young woman was looking at her phone and gave a big sigh, turned to her friend decisively and exclaimed, “He wants to go to Bali. But I say Fiji!” I couldn’t help but laugh. The absurdity of this “first world problem” was too much. From that moment on I started to catch all sorts of real-life conversations, that eventually turned into these illustrations.

The characters in the world of “#ThingsThatiHear” are people we all know: They are our office mates who complain to us about the daily grind. They are the awful online date we are trying so hard to forget. They are the people silently stalking our Facebook. More than anything they are the US when we think no one is listening.

Hilarious Tweets With A Dark Edge

(Via @DOGGEAUX)

Every internet user appreciates funny posts, and social media platforms like Twitter have made it easy to share the LOLz with your friends and family on a daily basis. But when the cute and silly tweets don't cut it anymore you need a share with a sinister edge, something that gives you an uncomfortable giggle, like this man-cat.

Text-only tweets can also get a bit tedious, but when the tweeter tries to get under your skin in 140 characters or less and succeeds it makes the effort worthwhile.

The best tweets are the hilarious yet dark, the tweets that make us giggle because they're so deranged, the ones that make you go "haha wtf was that?!" and cause you to feel a bit funny inside.

Hard-Working Dog Gleefully Clears Birds From Airport Runway To Prevent Aircraft Bird Strikes

Some dogs are lazy bums who can't be bothered to lift a paw to help their owners, but working dogs love to stay busy doing the important job they were trained to do, and they genuinely seem to have fun while at work.

For instance, K-9 Piper (previously on Neatorama) is employed by the Cherry Capital Airport in Traverse City, Michigan and has a very important job to do- scare off the birds that hang around the runway in order to prevent aircraft bird strikes.

But Piper doesn't stress out about doing his job or impressing his owner, Brian Edwards, because he is too busy having fun chasing those birds away to worry about quotas or looking good in front of the boss.

And besides, Brian loves him so much that Piper can do no wrong in his eyes!

(YouTube Link)

This Great Big Story video shows the important, life saving job being performed by dogs and showcases Piper's ability to have fun and get the job done, all while wearing some super cool doggles. Good boy Piper!

Stephen King: THE DESK

Stephen King has written many scary stories about inanimate objects, from The Mangler to Christine to The Monkey, but the scariest object he ever had to face was The Desk, which he thought would be a dream come true.

As you'll see in this comic by Zen Pencils, Stephen bought the massive oak desk in 1981 and proceeded to write some of his most famous novels behind it, but the desk only served to make him feel like an alien in his own home...

Darth Vader With A Regular Job

The Empire excels at taking planets by force, or destroying them outright should the planet's inhabitants choose not to submit, so their coffers are overflowing and their Sith commanders are paid well.

But had Darth allowed one more Death Star to be destroyed or failed to eliminate one more race of furry teddy bear creatures he may have been let go, forcing him to find a 9 to 5 and earn his credits like a lowly moisture farmer.

Photographer Michaël Massart imagined what Darth would look like if he had to take a severe pay cut and work some Joe job as a car wash worker, dishwasher or bus driver, and it seems even at his lowest point Darth still has henchmen.

Michaël does a good job of giving Darth and his two guards plenty of personality even though they're wearing full armor, and when he incorporates the lightsaber into the bit he does it just right.

Gordon Ramsay Sets A World Record For Longest Pasta Sheet Rolled In 60 Seconds

Gordon Ramsay isn't the highest paid chef in the world, nor does he have the most Michelin stars, but Gordon has one claim to fame that the other chefs don't- he has the world record for rolling the longest sheet of pasta.

This may not seem like a worthwhile endeavor for a chef of his caliber, but since Gordon may never be the highest paid chef or have the most Michelin stars he might as well put his energy into setting world records- because I've never seen him happier!

Watch Dr. Hunter S. Thompson Burn His Christmas Tree

Hunter S. Thompson was an unconventional man to say the least, but he still liked to celebrate the holidays by putting up a Christmas tree just like an average Joe.

However, Hunter disposed of his tree in a way many of us wish we could but few would dare to attempt- by  incinerating it in a post-holiday blaze of glory in his fireplace.

Hunter demonstrated his Christmas tree disposal technique to TIME magazine writer Sam Allis when Sam visited Hunter's Colorado home in 1990, telling his secretary Deborah Fuller:

"Let’s give the journalist a memorable experience to write about. He needs to learn how to burn the creosote out of a chimney. We can’t run the risk of a chimney fire during the year.”

(YouTube Link)

Sam had this to say about the day he witnessed Hunter's version of Christmas cheer:

“I gave up on the interview and started worrying about my life when Hunter Thompson squirted two cans of fire starter on the Christmas tree he was going to burn in his living-room fireplace, a few feet away from an unopened wooden crate of 9-mm bullets. That the tree was far too large to fit into the fireplace mattered not a whit to Hunter, who was sporting a dime-store wig at the time and resembled Tony Perkins in Psycho. Minutes earlier, he had smashed a Polaroid camera on the floor.”

Hunter had decided to videotape the Christmas tree burning, and we later heard on the replay the terrified voices of Deborah Fuller, his longtime secretary-baby sitter, and me off-camera pleading with him, “NO, HUNTER, NO! PLEASE, HUNTER, DON’T DO IT!” The original manuscript of Hell’s Angels was on the table, and there were the bullets. Nothing doing. Thompson was a man possessed by now, full of the Chivas Regal he had been slurping straight from the bottle and the gin he had been mixing with pink lemonade for hours.

Gorgeous Gravity-Defying Sculpture Made From An 80-Year-Old Wooden Escalator

The first working escalator was built and installed at Coney Island in 1896, and even though the steps on the first escalator were made of cast iron later models made by Otis used steps made of wood to reduce weight and production costs.

As rickety and scary as the ride would have been on a wooden escalator it also would have been visually appealing, and the rich, warm look of the wooden tread somehow looks far less terrifying than those metal fangs we have today.

Australian artist Chris Fox used an 80-year-old wooden escalator recently replaced by a metal one to create his amazing sculpture Interloop, and now those classic wooden stairs will roll on forever in the Wynyard Station of the Sydney Underground.

Refreshing Facts About Coca-Cola

Coca-Cola is such a big hit around the world that some people refer to all colas as "Coke", and even though the syrupy brown beverage invented by druggist John S. Pemberton in 1886 is bad for your health it's still a classic taste people crave.

In fact, people like the taste so much they rallied to preserve the classic recipe when New Coke came out in 1986, and yet they kept selling New Coke as "Coke II" until 2002, hoping it would catch on because it was cheaper to make.

So what is the taste of Coke anyway?

(Image Link)

According to a recipe discovered by Atlanta historian Charles Salter, who found it among a pile of documents belonging to inventer John Pemberton, Coke contains lemon oil, nutmeg oil, vanilla, cinnamon caramel and coriander, among many others.

(Image Link)

And one could say Coke also knew the recipe for success when it came to making oddball digi-character Max Headroom a star in the 80s:

The bizarre, pseudo-animated Max Headroom character was created as a virtual television star in the UK by record company Chrysalis in 1985. Sensing his appeal for young consumers, Coca-Cola licensed Headroom that same year and made him the center of their ad campaign with a series of commercials directed by Ridley Scott. According to Coke, the spots helped Headroom gain a 76 percent recognition rating among teenagers.

Gentle Bat Waits Patiently While Human Snips Off Netting That Entangled Him

Bats got a bad reputation when they became associated with vampires, witches and horror movies like Cujo, but in reality bats are gentle, and often skittish, critters who just want to hang with their bat buds in peace.

So when a human offers to help them out they'll usually accept without a fight, but wild bats normally aren't as cute or patient about it as Harry the bat is while a human from Batzilla the Bat gently removes the netting

(YouTube Link)

The Batzilla the Bat netting fund spreads awareness about how dangerous most netting gardeners use to protect their crops is for the wild bats of Australia and around the world:

As we live in a sub tropical climate we have massive problems with gardeners using cheap killer netting to protect their fruit trees from predation from bats, birds and possums and thousands of animals are tortured and killed each year in large aperture netting.

Never use any netting you can poke a finger through as it is deadly to wildlife.

These Parents Are Clearly Time Travelers From The Future

(Via @abi_slade)

Kids love to act like their parents are totally unhip, uncool and out of touch, usually because their friends think the road to coolsville intersects with too cool for school lane.

But what these youngsters don't get is cool is a state of mind- it's not about bringing other people down, it's about elevating your parental coolness levels by setting the trend and wowing the wee ones who dare to talk trash.

(Via @ninacaballero27)

Cool people know the power a new piece of tech can have over the unhip and underaged, but when their parents bust out a new device and say "yep, no big deal, just messin' with my cool tech from the future" the wee ones go "whoa".

Professional Tattoo Artists Critique Celebrity Tattoos

Celebrities are known for making poor decisions when it comes to partying, social media posts and how they spend their money, but they have the worst judgment by far when it comes to getting tattoos.

You'd think people who are constantly in the spotlight would think twice before getting a crappy tat applied to their famous skin, but more often than not the tats celebs choose to get are the worst.

So GQ asked professional tattoo artists and hosts of Spike TV's Ink Master Chris Nuñez and Oliver Peck to critique celebrity tats, and needless to say they are definitely not Beliebers or part of the Rihanna Navy.

Truly Messed Up Storylines From The Pages Of The Flash

Batsy isn't the only one who has witnessed, and done, some dark deeds in the DC Universe, because the Flash has quickly become one seriously dark dude!

(If you watch the CW show then you probably know some of these storylines already, but if not be warned there are spoilers ahead.)

Barry Allen has had his psyche damaged by a past he cannot escape (the death of his mother) and the earth shattering results of his actions (Flashpoint) but nobody got in to Barry's head like his nemesis Zoom.

Zoom made it his mission in life to take down the Flash no matter the cost, and as far as super villains without a conscience go Zoom ranks up there with the likes of Darkseid and the Joker in terms of body count.

But one kill in particular caused Barry to forego his heroic ethics and kill Zoom with impunity- the death of his wife Iris West.

Zoom murdered Iris because he was in love with her too, and because he had a psychotic infatuation with watching Barry suffer, but despite his anger the Flash let Zoom live- so Zoom showed up a few years later to kill Barry's new fiance on their wedding day.

Barry couldn't bear to see another woman he loved get killed by Zoom, so he took matters into his own hands- by snapping Zoom's neck before he could deliver the killing blow. It was a justifiable homicide, but it still took its toll on Barry's state of mind...

Embrace Your Dark Side With These Black Metal Comics

Black metal fans aren't known for their sense of humor, and they seem like they'd be too busy applying corpse paint to their faces and adding spikes to every article of clothing they own to read comics.

But it turns out black metal fans laugh, cry and have hearts that bleed just like the rest of us, and they even form little black metal families that pray to the dark gods of metal before sitting down to supper.

Or maybe these black metal families only exist in the panels of these Belzebubs comics by Finnish artist JP Ahonen, because a real-life family of black metal fanatics would get far too many visits from social workers...and exorcists.

Why Did Soap Operas Look Different From Other TV Shows?

You don't have to be a cinematographer to notice that soap operas always looked a bit different than the other shows on TV, and while most people chalk this up to cheap production values there's more to it than that.

Soap operas had to deal with a lot of problems other TV shows didn't have, such as evenly lighting an entire set so the characters can move around, and multiple cameras can be used, without resetting the lights.

They also shot soaps on videotape instead of film, which made the whole show look "off" when combined with the lighting:

Backlighting, part of the three-point lighting setup often used in television production, helps "lift" actors out of the background. This is especially useful for productions that are shot on a lower-quality medium and in small interior sets, which soaps often are. The problem is that shooting on videotape on a small set can reduce the subtlety of the lighting technique. Actors in the foreground often wind up very noticeably backlit, something that doesn't happen on shows with larger sets, or shows that are recorded on film.

What An Untouched 100-Year-Old Box Of Holiday Novelty Chocolates Looks Like Now

I've been a choco-gobbler since I was a kid, and I gobbled up novelty-shaped chocolate just like the rest, but some kids get a box of novelty chocolates and refuse to eat it because it looks cool.

Back in 1910 a little girl named Eileen Margaret Elmes received a tin full of Red Riding Hood themed novelty chocolates shaped like characters from the story, each of which was dressed in tissue paper clothing.

Eileen loved the little figures so much she refused to eat them, so she stashed them away and kept them relatively untouched throughout her entire life. She passed away in 2007 at 99-years-old, leaving her box of chocolates up for auction:

Inevitably, time has taken its toll on the chocolates made decades before sell-by dates were even invented. They display a white sheen of age that would put off the most ardent chocoholics but, when you open the box, the delicious smell of cocoa still fills your nostrils.And now, for the first time in a century, the chocolates have been publicly revealed at Hansons Auctioneers in Etwall, near Derby …The box of Little Red Riding Hood Pascall’s Chocolate Novelties will be sold on December 19 at Hansons Auctioneers, Heage Lane, Etwall, Derbyshire.

Urban Explorer Ventures In To The Crooked Cottage, Left Untouched For 9 Years

The name "crooked cottage" conjures up images of fairy tale domiciles inhabited by witches and wolves, but in this story the Crooked Cottage earned its name when the foundation eroded, causing the cottage to lean.

This strange rural home in Hetfordshire, England once had a woman and her father living in it, but the old man died in 1971 and the old woman was taken to live in hospice in 2003, leaving the Crooked Cottage abandoned until 2012.

That's when photographer and urban explorer Toby Batchelor ventured into the abandoned home to find it untouched for 9 years, right down to the bed that was still made up and a calendar dating back to the 50s:

“The building itself was so tiny, like something out of a film,” Tony said. “It had only one upstairs room, and the whole building had began to be reclaimed by the elements. Locations like these don’t come up regularly, and this one was kept secret for a long time.”

The Largest Employer In Each State

Employment seekers may have a hard time finding a job if they only look on Craigslist or job sites like Monster or Indeed, but if you're serious about getting a job you should do your homework and see who hires the most people in your state.  

And in 22 states that means going to work for Walmart, who is America's largest employer according to this map created by Visual Capitalist of the largest employers by state.

In states like California, Hawaii, New Mexico, Wisconsin and New York you should head to the universities to look for work, otherwise your best bet is to get into health services or medicine if you're looking for a gig in a non-Walmart state.

But let's be realistic- when all else fails there's a Walmart in all 50 states, and they're always hiring!

Comedian Demonstrates How Cats Act In The Middle Of The Night

Cats don't have to adhere to a 9 to 5 schedule like their poor overworked humans, and because they're free to do their feline thang whenever they want many cats think the middle of the night is the best time to get frisky.

This naturally bugs the hell out of their humans, who are trying to sleep so they can make the most of the daylight, but cats are too busy scurrying around the house, knocking stuff over and tearing up the couch to care how their humans feel.

(YouTube Link)

Comedian Gus Johnson put on a pair of ears and some whiskers so he could properly channel the spirit of a cat when they're at their most rambunctious- at 3 a.m. when their humans dare try to dream.

A Cheat Sheet To Indian Restaurant Menus

Foodies who like to sample dishes from all over the world have at least some experience with Indian food, and once they've seen how many interesting and exotic flavor combos Indian restaurants have to offer they're hooked for life.

But bland and unadventurous eaters in the world are afraid to give Indian food a chance, usually because they're afraid of spice, don't dig curry or have been told some BS about it being unsafe without giving Indian food a chance.

Vindaloo

Vindaloo is a south Indian dish with many variations. The version you’ll likely see in an Indian restaurant will include some kind of meat base cooked with red chilies, vinegar, garlic, and sometimes potatoes. In India, the dish is known for its unmitigated spiciness. But at your neighborhood Indian joint, chances are the heat has been tamed. Unless you ask for it.

Maybe if they knew Indian restaurants serve up more than curry they'd give it a chance? The Takeout created a "cheat sheet" to Indian restaurant menus that takes all the mystery out of strange sounding dishes like Vindaloo, Chana masala and Rogan josh:

With most Indian dishes, you can select your choice of meat. When it comes to rogan josh, lamb is the only option. The key to its smoky and sweet taste is the base, which consists of onions that have been browned in oil or ghee (clarified butter) until essentially caramelized, as well as the heavy dose of bracing, warming spices like whole cardamom and clove. You might see on a menu that the dish has chilies, but don’t worry—the chilies used in rogan josh are usually mild ones. If you’re at a good Indian restaurant, your rogan josh might be finished with a touch of saffron—an expensive spice with a delicate, floral flavor.

Rude And Offensive Christmas Cards For People On The Naughty List

Christmas cards usually have either a traditional or whimsical appearance in order to appeal to the masses, who want to give out cards that adhere to the classic ideas of Christmas so as not to rock the sleigh.

But what if you really hate the person you're sending a Christmas card to?

That's highly unlikely, since most people wouldn't waste the money or energy sending a mean card to their enemies, but what about those of us who are tired of all the cheesy Christmas crap and want something that better suits our lowbrow sensibilities?

Well, believe it or not, rude and offensive Christmas cards have been around for a really long time, but nowadays instead of hiding the dirt under a snowy layer of double entendre greeting card makers just let it all hang out.

Who Knew Dragons Poop Bricks Of Pure Gold?

Cracking up at the thought of someone pooping may seem a bit juvenile to most, but the image of a dragon crapping a brick of gold is just plain funny no matter your age or maturity level.

Seeing a centaur poop on a human toilet is similarly hilarious, especially when they struggle to wipe, but a merman sitting on a toilet is anticlimactic because they don't have a butt.

However, put all of these mythical poopers together and you've got the making of one fantastic commercial for the Squatty Potty!
