Lots of comics deal with the differences between cats and dogs, since they are the most popular pets for pencil jockeys, but there has never been a collection of difference drawings quite like this series by Bird Born.
That's because Bird Born only finished the series about a year ago, so if they look like comic drawings starring cats and dogs you remember reading as a kid you're probably thinking of Garfield or Heathcliff.
It's easy to mistake Bird Born's comical cells for some cute strip from yesteryear, because there's just something so classic about his comics!
To be fair the Black Lotus card discovered by openboosters in the video is an extremely rare card released around 1993 and valued at over $27,000, but how's he going to feel if he loses with that card in his deck?
Do you think racial sensitivity has gone too far in America? Your response will determine whether you find this billboard offensive or not.
Believe it or not this billboard has caused all kinds of controversy since it was spotted along the 201 freeway in Utah and posted online, with people claiming it's reminiscent of segregationist attitudes.
But as it turns out Sam Russell, founder of Where White People Meet, says his dating website isn't racially insensitive at all, claiming he's not a racist because he "dated a black woman once".
Whether you think Sam's dating site is racist or not consider this- there are all kinds of racially specific dating sites out there, including Black People Meet, JDate and the racially harmonious BlackWhitePeopleMeet.
A magical thing happens every time we say goodbye to the old year and hello to the new- everything we cared about from the old year dies.
It's not a physical death, and since we share so much of ourselves online that old year's stuff still lives on forever in virtual space, but according to the interwebs stuff from last year is no longer relevant and therefore "dead".
That includes viral content, top news stories and, of course, or beloved memes. Remember when you gave a crap about Left Shark for a total of two weeks back in February?
No love for that hungry little guy either, eh? Well then let me introduce you to Demi Lovato's basement dwelling twin sister Poot, she's far more frightening than Left Shark or Pizza Rat so you'll simply adore her!
It's officially 2016, which means all the old clothes you own are so last year!
Just kidding, of course, but there's nothing like starting the new year with some fresh new clothes, and there's nowhere fresher and geekier than the NeatoShop, home of thousands designs that will blow your mind!
We start the New Year by changing our calendars and writing a new date on our checks and stuff
It's hard to become well liked by the general public for being a proud abuser of hard drugs, since only stoners are seen as humorous or lovable, but everybody loves a drunk.
Whether the drunk in question is a famous star of stage and screen, a rock n roll icon or a witty journalist who writes drunk and edits sober, some of our favorite famous people have been shameless sots.
Humphrey Bogart played a river boat captain who couldn't live without his Gordon's Gin in The African Queen, but in real life Bogey was partial to scotch.
Hollywood royalty Richard Burton was said to drink four bottles of vodka a day, but the old pro "cut down" to three bottles a day while filming Under Milk Wood in 1972.
And we all know Hunter S. Thompson enjoyed his booze with a side of drugs, but what about Charles Bukowski?
It was said Bukowski got his creative juices flowing by drinking two six packs of beer and a pint of Cutty Sark, because “when you drank the world was still out there, but for the moment it didn’t have you by the throat.”
New Year's Eve and drunken revelry go hand-in-hand, and nowadays many countries associate New Year's Eve celebrations with rampant binge drinking and people acting wild in the streets.
But to properly showcase the sloppy nature of the night you've got to catch those celebrants in the raw- uncouth, uncaring and often unable to stand.
Some of these scenes resemble the tragic and comedic tableaus found in classical paintings, as those who have chosen to ring in the new year by getting blind stinking drunk are swept up in the bakkheia of Bacchus.
The internet is full of advice meant to show us how to be better people, telling us how we should treat others, how to raise our families right, and what it means to be a moral person. But we should ask ourselves this- who are these mysterious advice mongers, and what's in it for them?
If you want to know why society seems to shun you, or why you seem to get no respect, it's because society is full of people who need things. They need houses built, they need food to eat, they need entertainment, they need fulfilling sexual relationships.
the moment you came into the world, you became part of a system designed purely to see to people's needs.
Meanwhile Cracked alum and author of John Dies At The End David Wong has some good stuff to say with (virtually) no ulterior motives in mind, and instead of speaking in platitudes his words of wisdom cut deep like a self-help shiv:
I want you to try something: Name five impressive things about yourself. Write them down or just shout them out loud to the room. But here's the catch -- you're not allowed to list anything you are (i.e., I'm a nice guy, I'm honest), but instead can only list things that you do (i.e., I just won a national chess tournament, I make the best chili in Massachusetts). If you found that difficult, well, this is for you...
THE WORLD ONLY CARES ABOUT WHAT IT CAN GET FROM YOU
Dudolf's illustrated optical puzzles were the latest in a year full of fun optical illusions going viral online, but they didn't offer people the opportunity to argue about them so they weren't the big winners of the year.
However, there were some real gems posted well before Dudolf's doodles, like the cat walking up downstairs, the empty field that's actually full of sheep, and the radical "color changing hair!" illusion.
But not all the illusions that went viral were awesome. There was the dumb "guys does this say Greg or Corey", the dumber "which color matches the shoes the best?" and the ultimate in viral dumbness "what color is this dress?".
It's easy for fans to see why anime is entertaining to watch, but for those who "don't get it" anime is mind boggling, with characters flailing around doing all kinds of weird things that don't make sense.
Even though they're both wildly successful science fiction franchises, the worlds of Doctor Who and Star Wars aren't likely to meet anytime soon, except maybe in a fan-made mashup.
But if the two worlds did somehow intersect there would undoubtedly be some really cool looking tech, even cooler than the Twelfth Doctor's sonic sunglasses, like this custom lightsaber fit for a Time Lord.
Built by skilled sci-fi craftsman Ken from Hampton's Hand-Crafted Lightsabers, LLC, the sonic screwdriver body shape is based on the Eleventh Doctor's mysterious device, and as Ken notes when you start it up it "has that sonic screwdriver sound in the background of the saber hum".
Human hearts bleed for those poor innocent animals who are burned trying to help their humans, and human blood starts to boil when somebody posts a fake animal story online to garner sympathy or donations.
But what happens when the story is simply a harmless joke Facebookers felt was in poor taste? People get all kinds of mad anyway, because the internet.
It all started when Stephen Roseman slapped a piece of ham on his dog's face and snapped a pic, posting it to Facebook with a silly caption asking people to pray for his dog via likes and shares.
A silly pic posted by a playful dog owner quickly became a comment crapstorm simply because of what Stephen wrote, or more precisely, because people believed what he wrote.
The post got over 100,000 shares and brought the craftiest and most ham fisted commenters out of the woodwork to weigh in on the issue.
However, the real problem is that people are far too willing to believe everything they see posted online, and yet they blame the original poster for "deceiving" them when even a three-year-old can tell it's a fake.
Everyone has been having such a good time searching for pandas and cats in among a sea of stormtroopers, black metal fans, owls and snowmen that the optical puzzles have started to roll out.
This time around a fan of finding stuff named Tracy Lynn Heightchew decided to share a photo of herself and the hundreds of young minds who attended the Junior Achievers Conference in Bloomington, Indiana back in 1978.
Why did she share this photo? Because there's a panda hidden somewhere in that sea of humanity.
Agent Cloxx Glllllulder was about to get called back into active duty and he could hardly contain his excitement. Cloxx had been working on the A files for many years, trying to find proof that the pink skinned hairless apes known as Hue-mans actually existed, but every time he thought X marked the spot it was yet another dead end. But when he was partnered up with a fiery Martian named T'lana Xkullllllllleeeee Cloxx knew the proof of alien life was out there...

They say the best way to start a trip is with the first step, and the same can be said about writing the story of your life- it all begins with one page. The first page is always the hardest, as our minds struggle to figure out where we're going and where the entire trip will end, but as we start to move about and see new people in new places the pages seem to write themselves. And next thing you know you'll have an entire book full of memories and life experiences to share with those who have yet to finish writing their first page.
Spread some words of wisdom from St. Augustine with this One Page t-shirt by Machmigo, it's one mighty inspirational tee!
Darth tried bullying people into joining the Imperial forces, tried force choking into submission and even tried putting up propaganda posters that made the Rebel Alliance look like a bunch of terrorists, but nothing seemed to work. Recruitment numbers were down, stormtrooper morale was at an all time low, and the Dark side was starting to look like a joke, but then Lord Vader did something he'd never done before- he was nice to a random trooper. Soon the word spread about the kinder, gentler Sith Lord leading the Empire, the guy who went around calling everyone "buddy" whose helmet seemed to be smiling, and the Rebels knew they were in trouble...
Share the silly side of that war in the stars with the world by bringing home this Buddy Darth t-shirt by Blueswade, it's sure to put a smile on the faces of your fellow sci-fi fans!
Remember those wax packs of trading cards you used to buy at the bodega or comic book store, the mystery packs you couldn't wait to tear open as soon as you got home? Well, they aren't back yet, but hopefully kids in the 20th century will appreciate how cool it was collecting cards with the stars of our favorite franchises printed on them and bring the trend back! We used to get into schoolyard wars over which cards were the most valuable and which were a worthwhile trade, and some kids built an empire collecting and trading cards on the playground. Isn't it about time they brought our beloved wax packs back?!
Add some force awakens flavor to your geeky wardrobe with this Awakening The Darkside-Wax Pack Series 2 t-shirt by Captain RibMan, it's more durable than a trading card yet every bit as collectible!
It's hard work being the center of all evil on Earth, and even a book full of dark spells that summon demons and Deadites works up quite an appetite when people keep reading passages out of it. Luckily the Necronomicon feasts on souls and spirits, so as soon as somebody like Ash lets the evil loose the book has plenty of ectoplasmic material to munch on!

There was a time when Mr. Burns could get away with murder simply by being part of the One Percent, but things aren't looking too good for old Monty nowadays. Even Mr. Smithers has turned his back on the old coot, since he's no longer able to ignore all the transgressions committed by Mr. Burns, and so Monty's monopoly has fallen. But can Chief Wiggum keep that slimy old snake in the three piece suit locked up until his trial? Only if he moves the bars on the jail cells closer together....

The Ninja Turtles always manage to stay on the cutting edge of cartoon cool, but back when they were less colorful characters starring in a comic book series by Eastman and Laird they were the absolute coolest. It's too bad kids didn't see the TMNT that way, and since so many of them grew up watching the cartoon series the 1984 version of those teenage mutants has faded into obscurity. Isn't it about time the TMNT fans in the world did their homework and explored the comic book origins of their favorite Foot fighting foursome?
Take your geeky style back to the good old days with this Turtles 84 t-shirt by Stationjack, it's the best way to show the world you've been on board the Ninja Turtle train from the very beginning.
Pikachu is a cute little critter, but he's definitely closer in relation to a rat than a cat. Still, if some mad scientist specializing in pocket monster genetics could splice his genes together with that of the Mew that little lightning rat could become an amazingly powerful creature, capable of clawing the competition to shreds and cleaning himself while stuck inside that pokeball. But maybe we shouldn't mess with pokemon genetics, after all the more types we create the more trainers have to catch!
Explore the genetic possibilities of pokemon with this Picatchu t-shirt by Theduc, it's the fun way to show your fellow fans what pikachu 2.0 might look like.
While everyone is obsessed with that war in the stars and the intergalactic rebellion born from the conflict it's important to remember there's another equally important rebellion taking place here on Earth. This one doesn't star Jedis and Siths using the Force to fight, nor does it involve crazy alien critters and a sea of stormtroopers clad in white, because this rebellion is only for hungry humans. The Hunger Games have created a need for a new type of hero, one who simply empowers the people into action rather than taking down the bad guys all by herself, and although the rebel Katniss isn't as flashy as those light saber sporting space guys her story is far more important because it shows us what to do when people in high places try to clip our wings...
Let the games begin with this Banner Of The Rebellion t-shirt by Adria.Wells, it's the stylish way to declare your independence.
2015 was truly a historic year for the motion picture industry, even though the most anticipated and highest grossing movie of the year didn't come out until the middle of December.
We watched Joseph-Gordon Levitt defy death in The Walk, our favorite wastelander Mad Max made it back to the big screen in Fury Road, and Star Wars: The Force Awakens brought a whole new generation of fans along for the ride.
But the surprisingly great films of 2015 award goes to the underdogs overlooked in the sea of smash hits. Indie films like Me and Earl and the Dying Girl and Brooklyn struck an emotional chord, while horrifyingly fun films Bone Tomahawk and Krampus delivered the ground meat without all the cheese.
Joey Paur of GeekTyrant put together a list of his favorite films of 2015, including a trailer and review for each movie, and aside from one film I found relative-ly weak I think he's right on the money with the rest of his picks.
A lot of great video games came out in 2015, including the triumphant return of beloved franchises like Fallout, The Witcher and Persona, new classics like Dying Light and Bloodborne, and the messy multiplayer mayhem of Splatoon.
But in among the gems there are bound to be some poop nuggets painted gold, and one game was so universally loathed the makers stopped selling it and offered everyone who'd already bought it a full refund- Afro Samurai 2: Revenge Of Kuma.
Otherwise great games like Batman: Arkham Knight made the list simply because the PC version was pure guano, and people were mighty peeved by Nintendo's money making racket known as Amiibo.
