You know what's the main problem with every single Batman movie adaptation ever?
Batman is never badass enough, because in order to create a faithful adaptation of the comic it would have to be Batman- The Movie starring Batman.
What's worse is we're constantly stuck with Batman reboots, where we get to watch Bruce begin his campaign against supervillainy all over again, which has been done to death.
But if you really want to see Batman become the god among superheroes he was meant to be you've gotta dig into the vaults and check out all the alternate versions of Batman found exclusively in the comics.
There you'll see Batman as a member of the Green Lantern Corps., a Victorian Batman hunting down Jack the Ripper, a few different versions of Vampire Batman, and the time Batman sat atop the Mobius Chair and actually became a god.
We like to think of our bodies as unique and totally different in shape than anyone else's body, especially in regards to our posteriors, but according to NYC plastic surgeon Matthew Schulman MD there are actually only 5 different types of butts out there.
And learning which type of butt we have can help us choose the right underwear and clothing that looks flattering on our fannies (the American usage, not the British).
The five basic booty shapes are square, round, V-shape, A-shape and upside-down heart, a list which Schulman MD formulated after examining "an estimated 50,000 butts from 35 countries and almost every U.S. state":
Dr. Schulman says your butt shape is determined by the placement of your pelvis and hip bones, the amount of fat you have and its distribution, the size of your underlying gluteal muscles, and the way your butt muscles attach to the thigh bone. The outcome is a butt that fits into one of five categories.
Are you a morning person? Well, good for you sunshine, because most normal people can't stand mornings.
We wake up with a head full of cobwebs, trying to squeeze that first cup of coffee in before something we see or hear makes us blow our top.
Sometimes we manage to survive the morning like true heroes, other times we do like the guy in this comic by Andy Kluthe- and sleep through our alarm because our dream life is so much better than the real one!
A baby's cry has a powerful effect on adults- some get annoyed and plug their ears, others have a more caring and maternal/paternal response, but either response proves a baby's cry is designed to get our attention.
But only the child's parents could ever claim to find the sound "soothing", and if the sound of a baby's cry is pitched down and layered about fourteen times it becomes the sound of infant hell.
The Walking Dead began as a faithful adaptation of the comic book series but soon went in a completely different direction thanks to budget restrictions, fan input and the logistics of creating realistic zombie hordes.
One way in which the show differs greatly from the comic is the cast of characters, and many of the most popular figures in the comic aren't featured on the show and vice versa.
Most people know the Dixon Brothers Daryl and Merle aren't even in the comics, but many of the other significant differences between the comic and TV versions will surprise you.
It's interesting to see the differences spelled out in such a clear cut way, but it will straight up spoil some major character events.
And if you're on the fence about all things The Walking Dead I would suggest reading the comic book series before (or instead of) watching the show, because in my opinion it really is much more enjoyable overall.
Magic eye books and posters became trendy for a sec when they first came out in the mid-90s, and everyone was naturally fascinated with those strange static pictures only certain people could see.
The images look like noise fields yet "magically" contain a 3D image within, and people who have figured out how to see the hidden image love teaching others how to "look without looking" or "use deep focus".
But some people can't see the hidden image no matter how hard they try, thinking Magic Eye pics are just a bunch of colored dots on the page when the real problem is with the viewer's stereo vision:
To view 3D stereo images, your peepers have to work together as a coordinated team. If they're not pulling together, you're going to have some glitches in your binocular (two-eyed) vision or stereo vision (where the two slightly different views from your eyes are combined in the brain). A number of things can cause binocular and stereo vision impairment — most commonly, deviations or misalignments of one or both eyes ("crossed eyes" or "wall eyes"), situations where one eye is dominant because visual stimulation either transmits poorly or not at all from the other, astigmatism or cataracts. If you think you have an eye problem, go see an eye doctor who can test and treat your stereo vision.
Jason don't care if Monday's whack, Tuesday Wednesday teen attack, Thursday stab someone in the back it's Friday and Jason's in love...wait, can that masked murderer actually feel love in his rotting heart? He loves Mama Voorhees, that much is certain, but could he actually develop an attraction to someone who isn't an immortal slasher? And would his Mama approve of him dating someone who doesn't share in their belief that all humans who visit Crystal Lake should die a miserable death?

Farmer Wilson should have known his daughter Samantha was too young to understand the difference between literal and figurative language, so naturally when he told her to feed the piggy with her spare change she did just that- to an actual pig. The poor little porker had no idea what an ordeal it would be to get a buck fifty in nickles, dimes and quarters out of his stomach, but at least he's back in his sty instead of being served up on a platter for Sunday dinner!

R2 is still rollin' after four decades of beepin' and boopin' up on the big screen, but what is it that makes that little droid such a timeless sci-fi character? He ain't as flashy as some other droids who will remain nameless, his body shape isn't dynamic and super detailed like those transforming robots in disguise, and he doesn't roll into war quite as hard as the Daleks. So what is it about that little wastebasket shaped robot that makes the fans go squee forty years later? It's that D2 swagger, and it's not just the fact that he says beep-bop-boop-beep it's the way he says it, and even though it's hard to put your finger on all the reasons why R2 is one of the biggest and brightest stars in the sci-fi universe nobody had to force you to love R2!
Let the love for your favorite droid shine bright with this Neon Droid t-shirt by Dr.Monekers, it's a timeless design that your fellow fans will gravitate towards like moths!
People who tend to feel lonely are loving all those voice controlled devices we have around the house and in our cars these days, because they always have someone to talk to.
This humanistic element is a big selling point for people who don't want to feel like they're talking to a robot, and once they start chatting with Siri, Alexa, Cortana or Google Home they want to put a ring on it.
Comedy fan David Chen started seeing Google Home, and once the two got to chatting David discovered GH is quite the jokestress, with at least eight minutes worth of material before she starts going a bit cuckoo.
Believe it or not this year marks the first time Mexico City had a Dia De Los Muertos parade, and as previously stated this spooky parade is all thanks to the opening scene from the James Bond movie Spectre.
Considering the turnout, and the quality of craftsmanship that went to all the amazing costumes, puppets and floats created for the event this parade will most likely become a new tradition in the DF.
And even though Dia De Los Muertos is typically a more solemn and localized tradition the Mexican people seem to have really embraced the idea of celebrating the lives of their loved ones who have passed on while watching a parade.
Advances in weaponry during the Middle Ages made it easier for humans to slash, stab, flay, crush and chop each other into bits on the battlefield, which is why fantasy and history nerds still think medieval warfare is king.
Of course, those knights riding around all super shiny help sell the cool, and armies laying siege to castles with catapults and stuff, now that must have been really cool to watch...as long as you weren't inside the castle.
Sam O'Nella Academy made a video dedicated to the cool and creative weapons and tactics conceived during the medieval era, it's crudely drawn yet totally worthy of huzzah. (NSFW due to language)
Gang members get tattoos on their necks and faces to intimidate their enemies, show allegiance to their set at all times and to prove they're thugging for life.
The rest of their tats likewise show a lifelong commitment to the gang, but those can be covered up when need be and don't necessarily affect their daily lives.
So what are former gang members to do when they're trying to go straight but their face and neck tats always make them look crooked?
Eventually they'll be able to afford laser tattoo removal, but for now they'll have to settle for seeing themselves without tats in these perception altering portraits by photographer Steven Burton.
Some of the former gang members featured in Steven's "Skin Deep" series say they've been tattooed for so long they've forgotten what they look like without tats.
Steven hopes his portrait series will help ex-gang members remember who they really are beneath all that ink:
‘I was inspired by the homeboys/girls trying to change there lives against the odds,’ burton recalls. ‘the concept came to me when I watched the homeboys going through the tattoo removal process. the idea was to digitally remove the tattoos, present the before and after photos to the subjects and see how they would react. I knew that the subjects would be shocked by the images, and probably amused, but I didn’t realize the full impact these photos would have on them, nor was I aware of the kind of impact their reactions would have on me. it was a little surprising for everyone.’

If you're looking for math party tricks rather than actual equations then memorize this sentence, count the letters in each word and wow people with your ability to recall the first seven digits of Pi- "How I wish I could calculate Pi". Now you kinda can!
Our spoiled little housecats have no idea how good they've got it in life, nor do they understand how hard their humans have to work so their prissy little kitties can use the finest litter and eat tinned meat.
But if they walked in our human shoes for a few excruciating days they would see the true cost of these luxuries, and maybe they'd start cleaning up after themselves once in a while.
So if your cat starts acting all loud and uppity show them this Anything About Nothing comic, set the job listings by their food bowl and ask them to sign a rental agreement- that oughta shut them up!
James Corden has welcomed lots of interesting guests into his car for the Carpool Karaoke segment on The Late Late Show with James Corden, but he's never had a hero like Anthony Kiedis of the Red Hot Chili Peppers in his car.
Of course, James didn't know Anthony was a hero when he invited him to sing and get silly in the car, but a dire circumstance presented itself during filming and Anthony sprang into action:
We danced off, we tied and then we were going to celebrate with some Mexican food on the corner. And a woman came out of her house, holding a child saying ‘My baby, my baby, my baby can’t breathe!’ We all ran across the street, the woman thrust the baby into my arms, the baby was not breathing and I thought ‘I’m gonna try and do a little baby CPR real quick, see if I can get some air in this kid.’ Tried to open the mouth, [it was] like locked shut. So I started rubbing the belly, bubbles came out of the mouth, the eyes rolled back into place, the ambulance showed up and I handed the baby over, who was now breathing and fine, and we went back to Carpool Karaoke.
But if you want to see the impact those hideous styles and color palettes had on society then check out the men's fashion ads found in magazines, where even the models don't know how to react to that gruesome garb.
Women understandably have little patience for joking around while giving birth, but Tanya Ferguson's goofball of a boyfriend wasn't going to stop being punny just because Tanya was about to have a baby.
In fact, her boyfriend James Riley sees childbirth as the perfect time to test out his new extra punny material on poor Tanya, who keeps on smiling even though you know she's dreaming about strangling James.
Cracking a few punny jokes to ease the tension in the birthing room would have been fine, but James' comedic pun-ishment went on for five full days...I guess that's why his kid is already filing for emancipation!
Parents present the concept of the Tooth Fairy to kids as a fun way to celebrate the loss of their baby teeth while adding another magical being to the pantheon of childhood gods.
But if you think about it the Tooth Fairy is the most horrifying of these imaginary beings, a fairy who gave up life among the other fairy folk to collect teeth from human kids- while they're sleeping.
And, as this strip from Electric Bunny Comics shows, the logistics of how Tooth Fairies collect the teeth can keep a kid up at night...
In the British doctor’s notes, the humerus was reported to be 32.4 centimeters long. The radius was 24.5 centimeters – a ratio of 0.756 to the length of the humerus. Statistically, women born in the late 19th century (Earhart was born in 1897) had an average radius to humerus ratio of 0.73.
In other words, if the castaway was a middle-aged, ethnically European woman, she had forearms considerably longer than average. Dr. Jantz wondered if Amelia may have had similarly longer than average forearms. To answer that question we called on forensic imaging specialist Jeff Glickman. Selecting an historical photo of Amelia where her bare arms were clearly visible, and working with Dr. Jantz to identify the correct points on the shoulder, elbow and wrist for comparing bone length, Jeff found that Earhart’s humerus to radius ratio was 0.76 – virtually identical to the castaway’s.
We'll probably never know for sure if the bones belong to Amelia Earhart, but maybe it's time to simply accept these findings and put this mystery to rest once and for all.
Home is where the heart is and sometimes it can be a battleground, but pretty much everyone agrees having a home is better than being out on the streets.
And yet some houses seem to be totally unsellable due to their terrible location, poor condition or dark history.
But realtors aren't struggling to find a buyer for this house in Avon, Connecticut because of any of those reasons- they can't find a buyer because the house looks so creepy inside.
The walls look like they've been painted with blood, there is way too much copper in every room, and the decorative elements throughout the house are so jarring visitors (and potential buyers) can't wait to leave.
