It can be a real pain to live in a house with pipes that are constantly clogging up, and unless you know your way around the underside of a sink those clogs mean paying more money and calling a plumber.
But there are lots of helpful tutorials and DIY videos online that can help you avoid having to call in help, like this visual demonstration of how to unclog a bathroom sink from This Old House.
Your world may already be full of colorful characters and terrifying monsters, and depending on where you live these critters may make great subjects for photos, if they'll stand still long enough to take a pic.
But if your town/village/city is relatively critter free congratulations on living in a good place! And enjoy these images by animator Jasper StAubyn West that show what living in a literal world full of monsters would look like.
Jasper created these monsterrific images as part of a “doodle a day” project for the month of March, and here's hoping he brings them back soon because they totally rock!
The Rocky Horror Picture Show is one of the most beloved musicals of all time, especially to those who like shows with a little more bite, but when the iconic movie came out in 1975 it was overlooked by critics.
However, everyone who worked on the production knew it was pure magic, and all the fun taking place on the set and behind the scenes was captured on a series of now historic Polaroid photos.
These precious Polaroids (original photographer unknown) were used in The Rocky Horror Scrapbook then later purchased from a private collection by Larry Viezel.
Trouble is, a few of them fell out of Larry's bag at a New York City subway platform back in 2011, and could have been lost forever if a guy named Brady Marter hadn't shared them on Collectors Weekly:
Founds these on the platform of the C train in TriBeCa in 2011. They are photos of Tim Curry and the cast of Rocky Horror during the making of the film. Some have writing on the back and Frankenfurter kissed the back of one.
This video by WatchMojo.com shows us the good side of As Seen On TV, reminding us how the Fun Loom helped our kids get crafty, the PedEgg smoothed out our calloused feet, and the Mighty Putty fixed our broken lives.
Shows like Walking Dead, Breaking Bad and Game Of Thrones love to kill off characters, but when a supporting character is killed on a sitcom like Seinfeld or The Big Bang Theory people start to wonder why.
George's fiancee Susan was killed off because actress Heidi Swedberg lacked the comedy chops to keep up with the Seinfeld cast, so she didn't make the cut.
But sadly Howard Wolowitz's mom on The Big Bang Theory, who was never actually seen on camera, was killed off because actress Carol Ann Susi died of cancer.
Carol had previously appeared on Seinfeld as the unemployment office worker's daughter, Carrie, with whom George went out on a few dates to avoid losing his benefits.
Apparently some people still love to twerk, and those butt shakin' fools are willing to risk wetting themselves in public, spinal injury or worse to shake what their maker gave them to a funky bass beat.
But elementary school teacher “Miss Clarissa” clearly didn't have a clue that her love of the twerk would cost her a job she loved even more.
“Miss Clarissa” was fired when this video of her competing in and winning a twerking contest in Cabo San Lucas during Spring Break was shared online.
She was forced out of her job by school administrators who found her off campus behavior unacceptable:
"They didn't give me any other option at my school than to resign," she told the publication. "I felt I was being attacked and put under pressure. I didn't know what else to do apart from leave as quickly as I could."
This is just further proof we live in an oversensitive world that places too much importance on social media posts, and if teachers aren't allowed to blow off steam in their private time it's the students who will suffer.
Have you ever looked at yourself in the mirror when you're buzzed or totally blotto and thought “gee, my face looks kinda funny right now!”
You may have dismissed this change in appearance as merely the product of inebriation, but this photo series by Marcos Alberti shows us that drinking actually makes our faces more fun.
That's because the alcohol in our favorite alcoholic beverages (in this case wine) takes away our inhibitions and allows us to stretch our faces into super silly expressions, thereby eliciting laughs.
It's all really scientific and related to chemistry and biology and endorphins and such, but this is all you really need to take away from Marcos Alberti's photo series- three glasses of wine is enough to loosen anyone up!
The iconic pantheon of superheroes who form the Holy Trinity of the DC Universe suffer from an identity issue they've never been able to outgrow- their equally iconic costumes.
If Batman doesn't have his cape or pointy-eared cowl, if Supes doesn't have a cape or an S on his chest, and if Wonder Woman is caught without either her bracers, tiara or lasso these heroes somehow lose their power.
Artists have tried to come up with new outfits to make them look more like normal folks, but they're not normal- they're super, so any wardrobe change should really reflect that.
That's why two of the three redesigns created by Stephen Byrne work so well- Batman becomes a bit more of an agent or contractor but still retains his batty spirit and still looks intimidating.
And Wonder Woman looks like an urban adventurer ready for action, still regal, still a warrior but less of a princess.
Supes in jeans and a t-shirt, on the other hand, just doesn't do it for me.
It's a bummer dogs can't go grocery shopping with us because they'd be great at picking out snacks, although they'd probably force us to buy a cartload of both real and squeaky steaks so maybe we're better off.
But if and/or when grocery stores allow dogs to come along they'll ride comfortably in a cool dog friendly shopping cart, like this one introduced by Gianfranco Galantini in his grocery store Unes.
Secret Service agents have to do pretty much anything the Prez tells them to do, like carry all of Jimmy Carter's luggage or shield Lyndon B. Johnson while he pees outside (and on the guy's leg), so that's a start.
The message begins “Hey, Obama, I know you have a lot on your mind these days … I’ve decided to give you a little advice after seeing you lost in thought before my portrait during a recent Easter Prayer Breakfast.”
Their (Abe's?) "advice" is related to Obama's efforts to rid the world of nuclear weapons, stating that it's "a mockery to the entire world" for the U.S. to keep their arsenal and make other countries get rid of theirs.
"Abe" goes on to praise Obama while criticizing "himself":
“Hey, Obama, it’s the 21st Century,” the letter says. “The tactic by past American presidents, including me, who deceived the people … is outdated. That doesn’t work now. The world doesn’t trust an America that doesn’t take responsibility for what it says.”
This unsolicited advice comes a few years after the state media called Obama a "monkey" and Senator John Kerry a "wolf with a hideous lantern jaw", so something tells me the Ghost of Abe Lincoln had nothing to do with this letter...
The feline pet population has it way too easy- they're asked to do nothing more than catch mice, eat on the floor, poop in a box and allow humans to dote on them, which is why all the working dogs are so jealous.
But this video by Sho Ko seems to indicate that our cats are actually overworked, and with all they do in a day it's a wonder they have time to squeeze in sixteen hours of sleep!
Game of Thrones, and the book series that inspired the show A Song Of Ice And Fire, clearly take place in a fictional world of fantasy, since there are White Walkers, giants, fire breathing dragons and such.
However, the political conflict that serves as the heart of the main storyline is inspired by real history.
Coming-of-age movies are supposed to have relatable characters that make us compare what they're going through in the film to our own lives, but that rarely happens when you're a weirdo.
Growing up as one of the odd ducks in the pond made me relate more to movies like Harold and Maude, Time Bandits and Quadrophenia than the traditional Hollywood fare, so Submarine by Ben Stiller and Richard Ayoade was right up my alley.
And lastly, if you're looking for comedy, poignancy and a slice of blue collar life set in North London then you've gotta check out Mike Leigh's fantastic funky family film from 1991 called Life Is Sweet.
Depression level sadness makes people feel small and critter-like, as they wallow in a sea of dark thoughts and dour moods with warm blanket to crawl under and music that matches thier mood.
But this is obviously not a good way to handle a visit from the Boohoo Blues, so those who have learned to live and love the depressed find ways to lighten their mood that don't involve hugging.
Those who want to help the depressed, and anyone looking for a cure to sadness, should check out this comic by YMB/Yasmin F and see how ten easy steps can make even the most gloomy person crack a smile!
The expression “Elvis has left the building” has been used as a comedic and colloquial way to say “the show's over”, “get out while the gettin's good”, “you don't have to go home but you can't stay here”, etc.
Our aunts and uncles say it, our grandparents said it before it was cool, and little kids say it even though they don't have a clue who Elvis Presley is, but where did this fun expression come from?
Simon Whistler of Today I Found Out explores the origin of this saying that's more popular than Presley in this fun factoid video, getting to the bottom of this mystery with a little help from our friend Eddie Deezen.
Superheroes and supervillains fight because that's what they were drawn to do, but when two heroes go at it there's usually some underlying reason involving truth, justice and the goody two-shoes way.
The superhero flick Batman V Superman has brought up the sore subject of superhero-on-superhero violence, which will continue when Cap and Iron Man go head-to-head in Captain America: Civil War.
But believe it or not both Batman and Superman have been involved in far more brutal fights, with Bane and Doomsday respectively, which makes sense since heroes show restraint when fighting their fellow do-gooders.
Bane broke Batman's spine in the Knightfall story arc, which led to a lengthy recovery and Azrael taking over for Bruce as the Batman Family rallied behind their fallen leader.
Superman was "killed" by the mighty alien Doomsday in The Death Of Superman story arc, which kept Supes out of his spandex supersuit for three long years and led to a reboot of the beloved character.
We've been wasting time playing Solitaire, Minesweeper, Hearts and FreeCell on our Windows PCs for decades, never knowing that those simple and addictive little games were secretly included to teach us stuff.
Solitaire was installed in Windows 3.0 back in 1990 to teach mouse-fluency with its simple click, drag and drop mechanic, and Minesweeper was put in to turn users into the ultimate code breaking machines.
Just kidding, it's meant to help users develop faster and more precise mouse movements and to make them comfortable with left and right button clicking. Beginning to see a pattern here?
Hearts was meant to get users comfortable with the idea of a local network and get people interested in Windows 3.1's networking capabilities.
And finally there's FreeCell, the game that wasn't meant to teach users anything- it was installed to test a data processing subsystem called a “thunking layer” which allowed 16-bit versions of Windows 3.1 to run 32-bit applications.
FreeCell and the other games would have been left out of subsequent versions of Windows if users didn't like them so much, but every time Microsoft leaves them out they get complaints.
Most people play it cool and try to pretend like they're minding their own business while riding the subway, but in truth we're all furtively watching what others are up to while we ride.
Knowing that eyes will be upon you means pretty much any prank will be easy to pull off, so subway pranksters like Scott Rogowsky always come prepared.
In this instance Scott started rode the subway armed with fake books like "Mein Kampf for kids!", "How To Hold A Fart In" and "Slut-Shaming Your Baby", just a little light reading for the afternoon commute.
Scott's hilarious book covers raised many eyebrows on the train, but people didn't want to admit to being nosy so they just smiled and shifted around uncomfortably in their seats. (Video contains NSFW content)
Vulcans don't know how to party down, throw caution to the wind or act impulsively, which is why they make perfect mates for lovers of logic and those overemotional souls seeking balance in their life.
Hair and makeup stylists who work in Hollywood are in a unique position to spend lots of time hanging out with the talent, as stars often spend hours in their trailer getting camera ready.
If these stylists are lucky they may even get to hang out with the stars off set and possibly become friends with the famous faces they do work on every day of a shoot.
Back in the 90s hair stylist Jason Rail got lucky while working on indie movies such as Nowhere, The Doom Generation and Clockwatchers, hanging out with Rose McGowan, Lisa Kudrow and Parker Posey, who he's still friends to this day.
Jason captured the 90s indie movie scene both on and off the set with his trusty Polaroid camera, and the pics have sat in a shoebox for two decades until he recently started sharing them on his Instagram.
Swarms of pretty much anything are scary to see swarming, terrifying when the swarm is coming towards you and totally panic inducing when the swarm actually makes contact with your body.
But thanks to this amazing(ly unsettling) footage shot by Jesús Pineda of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) you can just watch the massive swarm of red crabs scuttle along the Hannibal Bank Seamount off the coast of Panama.
This video documents a few significant discoveries- the red crabs had never been seen so far south (they typically hang out around Baja California), and nobody had ever documented red crabs swarming before.
It's almost like the crabs knew Jesús Pineda and his team were coming...
It's pretty common for high school seniors to write witty quotes and take goofy senior pictures these days, but every once in a while a senior comes up with a senior pic shoot that becomes the stuff of legend.
This year's legend in the making- Kris Costello, an 18-year-old senior at Combs High School in San Tan Valley, Arizona.
Kris aspires to be a comedian so he decided to show off his comedy chops by staging an epic senior picture shoot that started with Kris arriving at graduation like a true baller- in his own private jet.
The mayhem continued as Kris was covered in confetti by his adoring public at the graduation ceremony (champagne bottle sealed 'cause he's on school grounds)
And finally ended when Kris realized he'd had enough fun in one day to last him through his first year of college.
When Tony Stark realized he could create specialized suits of armor that would help him take down the biggest and baddest opponents in the Marvel Universe he went to town.
He made Hulkbuster suits, Hydro Armor for superheroing under the sea, stealth armor, heavy duty armor and even a suit made to help him battle alien forces in deep space.
But as you can see in this comic strip by Luke McKay Mr. Stark soon discovered there's such a thing as too specialized, and his later suits started to look a bit silly. Oh well, back to the drawing board!
