Woman Takes Selfie In 11 Different Dressing Rooms, Looks Remarkably Different In Each Shot

Have you ever tried clothes on in a dressing room and thought to yourself "this doesn't look right at all, and that person in the mirror doesn't even look like me!", only to leave the store empty handed?

Fitting rooms should have flattering light and pleasing colors that make the clothes look good, but Russian blogger Inna visited dressing rooms in 11 different stores and found they often fail to flatter.

Inna visited clothing stores such as H&M, Mango and Zara and compared her before shot, taken with home lighting, to the shots taken in each room.

And even though she was wearing the same clothes, and shot the pics with the same phone, the lighting and background changed her look up quite a bit from shot to shot.

So what did Inna conclude based on her research? Brighter lights are more flattering, and red used right will really make you stand out, but a dark dressing room can ruin an otherwise good shopping trip.

Lord Bagel Vs. The Donut King

For me the donut will always be king, but some strange people prefer to bow down to lord bagel in the morning rather than praising the hole-y king of all baked goods.

And now this infiltrator is trying to pass itself off as a sweet breakfast treat, the bagel bringing his best friend the cream cheese schmear along for the ride.

Whether you're a fan of the classic donut monarchy or you're one of those savory sweet upstarts you'll appreciate this Buttersafe comic because both sides lose to the mighty god Java!

A Wonderful Short Documentary About The Art Of Clowning

Clowning is a comedic artform that dates back centuries, and although clowning has become less circus and more cirque over the years clowns are still doing classic bits and carrying on an ancient tradition.

Those who embrace the role of the clown have many skills to master, such as makeup, slapstick and miming, but most importantly they must develop a character the audience connects with and make 'em laugh.

(YouTube Link)

This wonderful episode of the American Theatre Wing series Working In The Theatre focuses on the art of clowning and reveals the true power of the clown- universal appeal.

Anime Artist Turns His Sons' Drawings Into Amazing Characters

Artistically inclined parents love to bring their kid's artwork to life in some way, either by translating it to a different medium or creating a more polished version.

It's a charming activity that gives parent and child the chance to work on an art project together, which kids really appreciate when their parent has a really a cool job in the animation industry.

French artist Thomas Romain works as an anime creator in Tokyo, and after having worked on shows like Space Dandy and Basquash! he has learned how to translate doodles into awesome anime characters.

So he started working with his kids on what he calls his "Father and Sons Design Workshop", turning their simple and extremely loose sketches into tight, ready to use character designs.

Someone needs to give this talented dad and his sons their own cartoon show!

Vintage Photos Of Depression Era Gangsters And The Lawmen Who Gave Chase

People who chose to live the gangster life during the early 20th century were cut from a rougher yet more refined cloth than the gangsters of today, and they always looked dapper no matter what they were doing.

The rackets were numerous, the risks immeasurable, but these outlaws chose to make a buck bruising, smuggling, shooting, stealing and strongarming knowing full well it might cost them their lives.

Looking back on these photos of Depression era mobsters you can see a sort of haunted look in their eyes, the only clue to their remaining humanity revealed in the one place they can't rebuild in stone.

The 23-Year-Old College Student Who Ran Away To Fight ISIS

It's hard for the average civilian to imagine having killed one person in combat, let alone over 100, but imagine having that record as a 23-years-old college student.

That's Joanna Palani's strange but true story- the student from Copenhagen, who is of Iranian-Kurdish descent, dropped out of college in 2014 to "fight for human rights for all people."

She fought the Assad regime and ISIS in Syria as part of the Kurdish People's Protection Units (YPG) and Peshmerga, and claims to have killed over 100 ISIS militants in Iraq and Syria.

She also helped liberate enslaved Yazidi girls in northern Iraq, a cause close to her heart as a Kurdish woman:

Palani gushes with pride about her role as a trainer for mainly younger, Kurdish fighters. "The young girls are amazing—they are exhilarated after coming back from the front lines. They are very brave, more brave than I could ever have been at their age."

But the Danish government wasn't impressed, and when Joanna returned home from the fighting  in 2015 they revoked her passport via email:

"The Peshmerga gave me 15 days off, " she explains. "After arriving in Denmark the police sent me an email after only three days. It said my passport was no longer valid, and would be revoked if I was to attempt to leave the country. If I was to go back I could go to jail for six years."

Now Joanna is facing years in jail after admitting traveling to Qatar in June of 2016, and instead of being treated like a hero she is being prosecuted like a terrorist.

The Dangers Of Stealth In Video Games

Video games that involve a lot of stealth are the bane of my existence, because I want to play the badass game I've been hearing about but can't get past that one part because the guy KEEPS HEARING ME FOR SOME REASON!

But, as this comic by Julia Lepetit shows, there's a hidden danger that is worse than wrecked nerves, a danger gamers don't consider while they're sneaking their way through an entire game- stealth knees. Keep the crouching to a minimum, people!

Shower Thoughts That Will Stay With You Long After You Towel Off

Why do the greatest thoughts, ideas and epiphanies pop into our heads while we're taking a shower?

It must be something about water flowing over our bodies and the rainlike sound of the flow that frees our minds to wander and lets us think more clearly, without distractions.

(Via PixelConnoisseur)

It has gotten to the point where I'm thinking about buying a waterproof headset so I can record my thoughts before I inevitably forget them all after I towel off.  

If you don't have enough shower thoughts of your own and you're looking to add more random sentences to your brain you should check out the Showerthoughts subreddit and feed your head!

(Via marchofmimes)

My shower thoughts are equal parts design ideas, snippets of fiction and strange observations about life ala Jack Handey's Deep Thoughts, what are your shower thoughts like?

These Dogs Are Unimpressed By Zero Gravity Environments

People generally get a thrill out of floating around in a zero-g environment, but dogs clearly don't get the same thrill.

I guess digging zero-g is a human thing, because according to the dog in this video shared by Imgur user IAmtheDenmarkian the whole weightlessness thing sucks...especially when gravity returns.

(YouTube Link)

And, in case you were wondering, space dogs think zero gravity environments suck too, because they don't get why humans want to float around in a giant metal space tube when there aren't any snacks.

What's The Difference Between Tylenol, Advil, Aspirin And Aleve?

Non-prescription pain relievers are a bit like cola in that they're often referred to by one name, and where I live people usually ask for either aspirin or Tylenol even if they want Bayer, Aleve or Advil.

Others have reported a similar lack of brand name usage, with aspirin being the most universally used name for pain relievers, but is there really much of a difference between the brands?

Turns out there really is quite a difference- Tylenol is acetaminophen, which is best for headaches and not so good for joint pain.

Aspirin (acetylsalicylic acid) can help with light pain but also helps lower the risk of heart attack and stroke when a small dose is taken every day. It's also murder on your guts, liver and kidneys.

(Image Link)

For heavy pain you want either Advil, Motrin or Aleve- Advil and Motrin are ibuprofen, which is good for hangovers, menstrual cramps, earaches, toothaches and sore or injured muscles but not so good for a headache.

Aleve is naproxen, which takes a while to kick in but works great for people with moderate to severe chronic pain, such as a lasting headache or pain associated with arthritis.

Surreal Dolls With A Dark Fantasy World Inside Them

Collectors don't normally care enough about what's inside their doll's bodies to go digging, but curious kids will often perform a little surgery on their plushies and dollies just to see what they're made of.

They slice it open to find fluff, pellets or some other sort of filling, if anything at all, but imagine their surprise if they cut open a doll and discovered a tiny fantasy world inside.

These utterly fantastic dolls created by fantasy dollmaker Mari Shimizu are beautiful in every way, from their perfect paint jobs to the mysterious and creepy scenes playing out in their innards.

Vancouver Man Who Vanished 5 Years Ago Found Barefoot In The Amazon

(Image Link)

People end up lost or missing for a number of reasons, but it usually boils down to either kidnapping, death or because they wanted to get lost.

Anton Pilipa was declared missing by his family when he seemingly vanished in 2012, but he wasn't kidnapped and he certainly isn't dead- he just decided to take a walk from Vancouver to The National Library of Buenos Aires.

(Image Link)

His family feared the worst because Anton is schizophrenic, but Anton made it all the way to the National Library in Buenos Aires on foot- where he was sent away because he had no ID.

Then Anton walked barefoot to Brazil and lived in the Amazon rainforest for years, where he was taken into custody by a Canadian-born Brazilian policewoman who initially thought he was a beggar.

She was able to work with a few international agencies and embassies and track down Anton's family, who flew down to bring him home.

He described how he survived by picking fruits and berries, scrounging for food and clothes in the trash, and relying on the generosity of strangers.

But that’s not to say times weren’t tough. Anton started off with a small bag of belongings but was robbed of what little he did have on several occasions.

While walking 800km alone through the dangerous Amazon jungle, filled with poisonous spiders, snakes, caiman – which can grow up to 6m long – and jaguar, all his toenails dropped off.

Yet, while he met some "bad people" on his incredible 10,000 mile journey, he said he had "received more generosity, especially in recent times."

"I've never felt alone,' he said. "It's been a lot of thinking for years, sleeping in the open. It's very simple to live, we do not need many things."

The Evolution Of Keanu Reeves In The Movies

Keanu Reeves is still kicking ass in Hollywood thirty one years after his debut in Youngblood, and during that time he has played so many different types of characters it's hard to pin him down.

Keanu played an iconic stoner dude in the Bill & Ted's franchise, a hacker turned cyberwarrior in The Matrix franchise, a cop, a detective, a fancypants, a junkie and even Lord Buddha himself! (Video is NSFW due to language)

(YouTube Link)

This video by Burger Fiction takes you through the evolution of Keanu Reeves one clip at a time, from those early mellow dude days to the aggressive action hero we love to watch today.

Love Letters Written By Celebrities And Historical Figures

Everyone uses the internet to meet new people these days, and online dating has virtually replaced the old dating scene in every way, but this convenience is killing one element of courtship- the love letter.

Out of the depths of my happy heart wells a great tide of love and prayer for this priceless treasure that is confined to my life-long keeping.

You cannot see its intangible waves as they flow towards you, darling, but in these lines you will hear, as it were, the distant beating of the surf.

If you've ever sent and/or received a love letter then you know this is a terrible loss, and an email or instant message simply can't express the way you feel like a handwritten letter sealed with a kiss.

I don't know how to tell you just how much I miss you. I love you till my heart could burst. All I love, all I want, all I need is you — forever. I want to be just where you are and be just what you want me to be. I know it's lousy of me to be so late so often, and I promise to try a million times harder, I promise.

Love, Marilyn

Maybe these love letters written by Mark Twain to Olivia Langdon, Marilyn Monroe to Joe DiMaggio and Orson Welles to Rita Hayworth can help revive this dying art form, and we can use the internet to buy stamps instead!

Dearest Angel Girl:

...I suppose most of us are lonely in this big world, but we must fall tremendously in love to find it out. The cure is the discovery of our need for company -- I mean company in the very special sense we've come to understand since we happened to each other -- you and I. The pleasures of human experience are emptied away without that companionship -- now that I've known it; without it joy is just an unendurable as sorrow. You are my life -- my very life. Never imagine your hope approximates what you are to me. Beautiful, precious little baby -- hurry up the sun! -- make the days shorter till we meet. I love you, that's all there is to it.

Your boy,

Orson

Awesome Chainsaw Art By Simon O'Rourke

Chainsaw art began in the 1950s but really came into its own as an art form in the 1980s, when Art Moe showed off his carving skills at the nationally televised Lumberjack World Championships.

Since then many chainsaw carvers have stepped up to the trunk in an attempt to prove they're a cut above the rest, but when it comes to subject matter most of them lack any sort of range.

That's what makes Simon O'Rourke a real ace in my book- he carves out cool sculptures both traditional and fantastic, creating realistic sculptures of animals, angels, wizards, faeries and the occasional 'toon.

Simon has even been known to carve a sculpture into the side of a tree or two, turning the forest into an art gallery frequented mainly by birds and squirrels.

The Snow Monsters Of The Hakkoda Mountains

Each year the Snowmen of the Hakkoda Mountains line up like an icy army ready to march down and take over Japan, as hundreds of snowy forms populate the slopes of this winter wonderland.

Some see them as frozen monsters, others think of them as ghosts made solid by the frosty air, but they're actually fir trees covered in a thick blanket of snow.

Photographer Sho Shibata likes to explore the Hakkodas in the dead of winter and shoot pictures of the bleak beauty all around him, but since this range is so remote he makes sure to bring a few friends along for the trek.

Music Student Transcribes Song On Character's Butt In "The Garden Of Earthly Delights"

There are a lot of wicked details to be found in the Heironymus Bosch triptych The Garden Of Earthly Delights, but a music student from Oklahoma named Amelia Hamrick saw something scribbled on a butt that caught her eye.

It was sheet music that Amelia felt sure she could transcribe into an actual song, so she analyzed the character's behind and put together a cheeky little tune from Hell.

Listen to the song here

This kleine hineymusik isn't anything great, but transcribing sheet music found in a painting is a great idea!

WETA Workshop Sculptor Shows Off Incredible Prototype For "Labyrinth" Board Game

Artists, crafters and writers who become obsessed with board games often wonder if they can make their own game, and I've heard some great ideas from my many gamer friends over the years.

But theory and execution are two very different matters, and creating miniatures, art for the game and the perfect playing surface is really hard- unless you're a WETA Workshop artist like Johnny Fraser-Allen.

Johnny is a lifelong Jim Henson fan and sculptor who is working on a 3D board game based on Labyrinth, which he was happy to share with Adam Savage on this episode of Tested.

This year the skilled snow sculptors at the Sapporo Snow Festival chose to go old school by creating a massive homage to the classic SquareENIX RPG Final Fantasy VII.

The fifty-foot-tall diorama featured an incredibly detailed depiction of Cloud Strife and Sephiroth squaring off, and by some snowy miracle the sculpture stayed in place and didn't turn into an AVALANCHE.

Pop Culture's Best In Show For Every Breed

I can't watch the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show without wondering about dog breeds, or more specifically why breeds look the way they do.

That's because dogs are often defined by the look of their breed, and we assume certain things about their temperament and even give them a basic personality profile based on their breed.

But dog breeds get to break free of these generalities when they're featured in pop culture, and breeds we assume are weak, like the Maltese or the Pomeranian, are made mighty by the gods of geekdom.

I never want to go near a Pomeranian again after seeing this cute little guy in Blade: Trinity!

Pop culture franchises also do a really good job of turning killer dog breeds into total lovers, which is a much more realistic transition. Remember that vicious pit bull Backup in Veronica Mars?

Yeah, he was a real brute, just like that vicious German Shepherd Samantha from I Am Legend or that angry and violent Bullmastiff Butkus from Rocky.

Of course, some breeds have a hard time burying the bad rep they gain from starring in movies and TV shows, like poor Cujo the Saint Bernard who became the stuff of nightmares for all 80s kids.

Hauntingly Beautiful Driftwood Sculptures By Nagato Iwasaki

Pieces of driftwood are like nature's nomads, traveling far from their roots and going where the streams and rivers take them like no trees ever could.

These well traveled scraps of wood are shaped by their journey, twisted and gnarled until they become earthen works of art shaped by the hands of Mother Nature.

Sadly, most driftwood is used to build fires or as garden fill when collected, but Japanese artist Nagato Iwasaki has found a better use for those beautiful bits of wood- he uses them as a sculptural medium.

Nagato's humanoid figures are naturally gorgeous, and realistic enough to give you a hauntingly eerie feeling of familiarity when you gaze at their faceless forms, like someone you used to know but let slip away long ago.

There are many little details of Mario's character design that seem like they were included just to give him the look of a lead character, and we're probably better off leaving our questions about his details at that.

Glow-In-The-Dark Street Art Murals Come Alive At Night

Street art adds a vibrant, and sometimes interactive, element to an otherwise grey concrete city, and this artistic splash of color and life is enjoyed by all who lay eyes on the piece.

But imagine the viewer's surprise when they discover that piece on the wall transforms at night when a secret glow-in-the-dark element is revealed.

Barcelona-based Reskate studio paints mysterious street art pieces on walls all over Europe, and people who walk by the seemingly simple artwork during the day are treated to a neat surprise after dark.

The painstaking process requires the artists from Reskate Studio to add the photoluminescent paint details to the simple silhouette during the day, forcing them to wait until after dark to see how it all turned out.

Tom Cruise Falling Into Other Movies

Tom Cruise's career has been falling very, very slowly since the 80s, with a few updrafts here and there during his otherwise perpetual descent from superstardom.

But what's causing this fall? A string of bad roles? His connection to Scientology? That one time he went crazy and jumped on Oprah's couch?

Maybe Tom should just embrace the fall and work a "falling Tom Cruise" cameo into every movie that comes out!

KISS Is Now Selling Air Guitar Strings

KISS, or more specifically Gene Simmons on behalf of KISS, has been working hard to create as many types of KISS themed merchandise as possible, cashing in on everything from condoms to Kaskets.

But one of their latest releases seems too dumb to be true- KISS air guitar strings. It's a bag of air with a KISS header card on top, created for all those KISS air guitarists out there who keep breaking their strings.

If you think this $3.99 bag of air is taking KISS merchandising too far you're not alone, because Gene's son Nick seems to think this is a ridiculous idea too:

Photo Series Featuring Drag Performers Before And After Makeup

Drag performers aren't just men or women dressed up to look like the opposite sex- they're actors who create (often zany) characters and try to perfectly embody the role in every way.

That's why many drag performers are unrecognizable without their wigs or their makeup, because the people behind the flamboyant personas are often more reserved than their stage show would suggest.

Australian photographer Aaron Walker photographs drag performers before and after their dramatic transformation in his aptly titled series "Dragformation":

It’s the transformation process that is interesting to me, rather than the final look. It’s the amount of time and the attention to detail, from walking off the street and into the dressing room, to walking on stage. That’s a three-hour period of hair and makeup. …It’s really interesting. With most of the drag artists that sit for me, their before shots are slightly awkward—it’s a slightly uncomfortable process for them. But once they’ve transformed into their drag persona, they’re very confident and know exactly how to model for the camera.
