Life isn’t a race to the finish line, it’s best to live at a leisurely pace and avoid danger whenever possible. However, that’s easier said than done, and part of living a regular life means being exposed to all the dangerous things that surround us every day.
College Humor created this Gorey inspired animated short that reveals the wondrous array of things that can kill you, spelled out from A to Z by the Grim Reaper.
It’s not a treatise on the joys of living a paranoid life, quite the opposite, it’s a fun reminder to get out there and enjoy your life to the fullest while trying to ignore the dangers that lurk around every corner…
The amazingly talented street artists known as Os Gemeos have created some incredibly cool, and incredibly large, pieces over the years, including a mural that covered an entire Boeing 747 used by Brazil's World Cup team.
These super talented street artists have upped their graffiti game with their newest works- six colorful characters painted on 70 foot tall silos in Vancouver.
The extremely talented Brazilian brothers known as Os Gemeos were invited to paint their iconic "Giants" characters on the silos by non-profit arts group Vancouver Biennale, who are working to bring more public art works to their beautiful city by the bay.
It took the dynamic duo a month to complete this amazing project, and like all good street art the work was created for the enjoyment of public art lovers and not for profit.
The Goofster might seem like a big, bumbling buffoon here on Earth, but on many faraway planets he's worshipped as a god. His physical appearance changes into something resembling a pile of spaghetti and meatballs, and he gains the power of flight, other than that he's pretty much the same old goofy guy! Why would anyone worship such an inept noodle head? It's all in the strut and the hyuck...
Add a touch of the delightfully strange to your geeky wardrobe with this Flying Spaghoofy Monster t-shirt by BeastPop, it's an oddball flavor sensation!
Superheroes are nothing but made up characters from the land of make believe, in the real world the only super folks who use the symbol of the bat, or the robin, are the bats and robins themselves. The good thing is these little masked dynamos help keep the streets crime free and help curb the city's pest problem at the same time. And the bad part? The "calling cards" they drop on cars and statues all over the city!
Swoop up this Dynamic Duo t-shirt by Jason Parish and make the hearts of your fellow comic book fans soar with delight!
Busting ghosts makes everyone feel good, from the lowliest pie shaped fellows to the most famous ghost busters in the world, but something about busting ghosts made out of pure pixels takes the fun out of the whole process. Maybe it's the fact that 8-bit ghosts move really slow, or the fact that zapping them too hard makes them break apart into a bunch of glowing pixels, whatever the reason these video game ghosts just aren't as satisfying to bust as a phantasm full of ectoplasmic slime.
Bust out with some old school flavor, wear this 8-Bit Ghostbusting t-shirt by Lafar and watch your fellow fans go waka-waka-waka with delight!
You've probably heard the tales of a boy named Dennis, who used to terrorize his poor old neighbors to no end with pranks and various forms of mischief, but there's one menace from the past that makes Dennis look like a saint. He's Joffrey, the boy who would assume the throne, and instead of simply playing pranks on the kingdom's citizens he's beheading the whole lot of 'em...
Add some geeky game to your wardrobe with this awesome Joffrey The Menace mashup tee by Inner Coma Clothing Co., it's a great way to make your fellow GoT fans lose their heads with laughter!
The girls were looking for a fun new place to visit, seeing as how their flight abilities had allowed them to see all the Earth had to offer, so they decided to visit Asgard, home of the mighty Norse gods. Asgard has a strict dress code, so the girls were given appropriately Asgardian outfits to wear, and they all thought their new costumes were pretty sweet. But Buttercup, in true power puff style, got a little too in to her new role...
Bring some animated adventure to your geeky wardrobe with this Asgard Puff t-shirt by Mari Kari, it's mighty cute!
He's cute but super annoying, and even though he's a member of the Fairy Tail Guild Happy is a bit too bubbly at times for even the most upbeat members of the guild. Still, he does have some mighty useful powers, and lots of knowledge about Magic, so he's a great guy to have around when things start going downhill. Just don't get on his, or any Exceed's, bad side or you'll wish you'd never messed with that little kitty faced dude!
Bring a touch of fairy tale anime adventure to your geeky wardrobe with this Aye Sir! t-shirt by Shadee, and watch the faces of your fellow Fairy Tail fans light up at the sight of such a splendid design!
When vampires who have lived for centuries ponder about their prey they have a hard time wrapping their heads around what it means to be a man. Some say it means being a walking pile of organs, a sack of blood waiting for some thirsty vampire to come and drain them dry. But to those who remember being human, and those who have loved humans, the question becomes more philosophical than anatomical.
Pose the vampire's question to the world with this What Is A Man? t-shirt by LikeLikes, it's a meme-tastic way to show your love of classic video games and spark some discussions about the nature of being human...
The Cornetto Trilogy is one fantastic trio of films starring Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, written by Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright, and directed by Edgar Wright.
Three guys, three film genres, three hilariously messed up views of the world, three flavors of blood and ice cream.
Fans think they’re pretty great, the others….well, best not to speak about what the “others” think about these movies…
The main characters in each film are played by Nick Frost and Simon Pegg, so it seems only fitting that toy makers A Large Evil Corporation made Pegg and Frost the focus of their (hopefully) soon to be released line of vinyl toys based on the Cornetto Trilogy.
So far this mysterious band of toy makers has had very little to say about the figures, besides "stay tuned for further details", but judging by the rabid commentor responses these figures are going to sell faster than a fresh poured pint at The World's End.
Remixer extraordinaire Bobby Burns attempts to answer this question with his re-imagined trailer for Disney's beloved superhero flick The Incredibles, which could have been one dark little film if Nolan had been at the helm.
The combatants considered Blanka to be just another humanoid street fighter, but once they'd discovered his pocket monster origins, and the fact that he had saiyan blood running through his veins, they all backed out of the tournament. It seemed mighty unfair to make an average human fighter battle against a hybrid creature with superhuman origins, so Blanka was sent to compete in a different fighting tournament, one that was full of dark monsters that stalked their prey in the night...
Share the true story of Blanka's origin with the world by wearing this Blanka Fusion t-shirt by Rodrigo Marckezini, and shock the world with this bold revelation!
Dark days had fallen upon George's simian slice of heaven since the man with the yellow hat had moved in with his new girlfriend. George's curiosity began to take a dark turn, and he dabbled with petty crime, painting his face like a clown to conceal his identity. Soon the curious little monkey found he liked being a bad guy, and his wicked ways had begun to earn him a following...
Tell the story that has never been told about a monkey named George with this Why So Curious? t-shirt by Andy Hunt, it's delightfully dark and sure to put a smile on even the saddest clown's face.
We’ve all seen those famous photographs of historic events such as the Kennedy Assassination, Martin Luther King’s "I have a dream" speech, and the fall of the Berlin Wall, and our perception of these events is shaped by these iconic images.
Have you ever found yourself wondering what the area around these amazing photo ops looked like?
There’s something about watching a piano slowly being reduced to a pile of ashes via heat gun that is genuinely heartbreaking, worthy of a cheesy subtitle like "the day the music died" or "honky tonk blues".
Maybe it’s knowing how much musical joy the instrument has brought to the lives of listeners, or the fact that another piece of history is being reduced to ash.
Whatever the reason there’s something powerful about watching a piano being turned into a pile of smoldering rubble:
Deconstructed Piano is a meditative and melancholy video created by music lover Laurin Döpfner, who has this to say about his unique video project:
"Deconstructed Piano" considers the gradual destruction of instrumental music through digital sound generators. The Moonlight Sonata is corrupted in an assault by two robots. The Sonata represents the agony and grief suffered by the piano. For this performance two heat guns at a temperature of 650°C work the piano's wood on and on to the point of collapse. There are four cameras installed to capture the process in a time lapse with one frame every 6 seconds. The ongoing performance and the shooting took about 8 hours.
Chip 'N Dale Rescue Rangers was, like pretty much all Disney cartoons, full of anthropomorphic animal characters doing non-animal things, and that’s why the show was so adorable.
Even the thought of chipmunks and mice rescuing critters in danger makes me wanna squee, but if Disney had used realistic chipmunks in their afternoon cartoon show it would have earned a mature rating.
Animation Domination HD is back to ruin shed new light on more of our childhood faves with Scientifically Accurate Chip And Dale's Rescue Rangers, and once you watch you'll never be able to look at Chip 'N Dale the same way ever again!
Hotels are usually just the places you stay while visiting your actual vacation destination, and depending on the destination travelers end up spending as little time as possible in their hotel room.
They're usually just a place to rest our heads comfortably, but what if the hotel itself is the ideal vacation destination?
The Poseidon Undersea Resort in Fiji is one hotel sure to make you want to stay in your room all day long, if you're in to staring at undersea life up close and personal while lying in bed.
If you're not comfortable sleeping with the fishes then you might want to book a room at the Berggasthaus Aescher in Switzerland, centrally located in the Appenzell Alps. The accomodations aren't luxurious, but boy what a view!
Looking for a hotel that will let you sleep under the stars, without all that hiking and yodeling?
Take a trip to Kenya and stay at the Loisaba Lodge, where you can book one of their Star Beds "located among a kopje of rocks in one of the eastern valleys overlooking the 'Kiboko' waterhole." Now that's roughing it in style!
DC Entertainment is doing such a great job of bringing their characters to life, through the shows and shorts known collectively as DC Nation, that it’s not surprise these animated shorts are a million times better than the live action TV show.
They're all killer superheroic action without the drama filler, perfectly portioned to give you a dose of comic book fun that will brighten up your day.
They were two oddballs who became fast friends, a raccoon and a tree man who battled through days of boredom with their imaginations on a forest moon far, far away. Rocket always led the adventure, coming up with a suitable story about saving the galaxy and making lots of units, while Groot did his usual routine of looking cute and saying I Am Groot about everything. They had no idea about the fame and fortune that awaited them in the future, because for today they were just two friends out on an afternoon adventure.
Bring the power of imagination to your geeky wardrobe with this Guardians of Friendship t-shirt by Omar Feliciano, and share your love of intergalactic adventure with the world!

Kids are generally a pretty optimistic bunch, without any cynicism or prejudice to color their view of the world, and because of this positivity their outlook on the future is usually pretty fantastic.
In the past their ideas about the future involved flying cars, space exploration, and a world full of computer screens and cool inventions.
However, in the year 1988 kids were already starting to look at the future in a more realistic light, and their ideas about the year 2000 were some of the most mundane answers ever given to questions about the future.
Little Catherine Book, seen here striking her best future movie starlet pose, had this to say about houses in the future:
They'll build the houses so they have zig zags. Then they'll have trees on the outside of the zig zag so if a skunk tries to walk through the house they can't because the ends will be so sharp that they'll prick them.
And shy Brad Shaffer shared this startling revelation about the future of his family's home:
My house will get older and more spider webs . . . It'll just get more unless my mother cleans it.
It seems kids in 1988 had already accepted the disappointing reality awaiting them in the new millenium, and they were tired of animated propaganda like The Jetsons spreading lies about the future.
Spam emails can sometimes paint a pretty vivid picture, whether warning you about some imaginary activity happening to your account or telling a sob story about all the hardships the sender is currently experiencing.
Spammers try to tell a tale that will convince you to send money, or personal information, basically trying to successfully scam you out of your hard earned dough with storytelling.
Photographer Cristina De Middel saw the stories being told by Nigerian business opportunists, Russian widows awaiting a massive inheritance, or British cancer victims looking for help donating their riches, and decided to bring them to life in pictures.
The spam emails that inspired Cristina's photo series Poly-Spam are posted alongside the images on her site, so you can better understand what these poor fake people are going through in each picture. I'll never look at a spam email the same way again!
Some fast food chains have always had secret menus, while others have recently come around to the idea thanks to In-N-Out’s success with their secret menu, which makes customers feel like they've really mastered the art of eating out.
You used to have to search around online for posts detailing the contents of these secret menus, but now there’s a website dedicated to these deluxe dishes, and they're doing their best to gather every secret menu in one place- Hack The Menu.
They've collected 15 menus so far, for places ranging from Jamba Juice to Sonic, and they've even put together a list of healthy secret menu options, in case you're looking for some guilt free drive thru.
KFC Japan has come up with an appropriately Japanese way to promote their fried food product- computer peripherals and earrings shaped like their famous “keñtakkii sutairu” golden fried chicken.
Fried chicken fans can win a USB mouse or thumb drive shaped like a drumstick, or some shiny dangling drumstick earrings by following KFC Japan’s Twitter account and tweeting about the contest with the hashtag “#KFCカーナルズデー” (“KFC Colonel’s Day”).
One lucky winner will be selected for each item, while the rest of the entrants are left dreaming of a day when fried chicken isn't just for dinner anymore.
When the 10th and 11th Doctors had a chance meeting in a rather silly pocket of the universe they just couldn't help but act like total goofballs. They'd both just come from a rather lonely island, on a planet full of timber lakes and sam bergs, and they were both feeling a bit funny. They both started singing a melody that had been floating through their heads about the doc in a box, then gave each other a knowing smile and proceeded to lay down the whole track in one take! Too bad there was nobody there to see it happen, or record their session of silliness...
Show the world your sci-fi silly side with this Doc In A Box: Tardis Lovers t-shirt by Crocktees, it's a geeky masterpiece that will instantly put the song that inspired the design into your head!
Kids were lining up for days to buy Burglars and Dragons, expecting a roleplaying adventure type game that would take them days to finish and send their character across a magical world, but the end result was a bit disappointing. The gameplay consisted of sneaking around the dragon's den, trying to stay as quiet as possible so as not to wake the dragon, which was programmed to be impossible. When the dragon was inevitably awakened the Halfling burglar would have to talk his way out of the situation with his life, which sounds a lot more interesting than it really is...
Add some geeky game to your wardrobe with this Burglars and Dragons t-shirt by Pacalin, it's cheaper than buying an actual console game and the fun lasts way longer!
Everybody starts talking about Santa coming to town well before Christmas, but nobody ever talks about that other guy who makes an appearance during the holidays- Krampus! He's one twisted dude, and he has an axe to grind with children who have been naughty, because their uncaring attitudes end up getting them sacked. If Krampus comes calling for you then you'll know the true face of fear, and come next year you'll be praying to Saint Nick for forgiveness.
Bring some holiday sneer to your geeky wardrobe with this Krampus Is Coming! t-shirt by Jesse W. Campbell, it's darker than a coal lined stocking and the perfect way to celebrate Christmas your way!
There's one fairy who let her dark magic twister her into something quite horrible, a heartless and wicked woman full of maleficence and unchecked rage. Evil is practically pouring out of her very pores, and yet there's something quite beautiful about her, an allure that makes men line up to do her bidding. She may not be a queen, or a princess, but her royal standing is undeniable...
Show some love for the fairy tale dark side with this Heartless t-shirt by Jehsee, it's bold and beautiful yet wicked in all the right ways, just like the maleficent beauty that inspired the shirt!
From the first time she'd ever manifested her powers Korra knew she was destined to fight for the good of the people, and not just because bending the elements came naturally to her. She had the heart of a warrior, even though she'd never really had to fight much outside of school, and her steel will made most exercises come quite easy to her. But nobody expected Korra to master transforming into the Avatar State at will quite as fast as she did...
Bring the power of animated adventure to your wardrobe with this The Legend of Korra Avatar State t-shirt by Beka, and let your style points soar to new heights!
