Defiant Militaristic Chinese Video Goes Viral - "Who Cares?"

The Japanese have mastered the art of strangeness and therefore go gonzo on purpose, but the Chinese take their goofy videos very seriously and don't see why people think they're funny.

What's so funny about two cute teen girls in military uniforms with combat knives or a guy wearing a giant bear mascot head saying "Who Cares?"

Trust me, it's strangely funny, although it's meant to be aggressive posturing so don't let them know their wacky video made you LOL.

(YouTube Link)

The video was created by the Chinese Communist Party Youth League in response to the Permanent Court of Arbitration ruling against China's claims to the resources found in the South China Sea.

What does all that mean? Who cares!

These Hilarious Presidential Campaign Signs Should Win The 2016 Election

When an election year rolls around lawns and fences across the country start sprouting campaign signs, because presidential candidates think this crappy advertising tactic still works.

But voters know better than to vote for somebody just because their name appears on a plastic board littering a lawn, which is why this diabolical double billing will never be voted into office.

Well that, and the fact that one of these two characters are fictional, can you guess which one?

The 2016 presidential election is shaping up to be a diabolical dilemma, forcing voters to decide which candidate is the lesser of two evils, so maybe we should just vote for this guy instead?

This Smart Little Puppy Gives Himself A Bath Every Day

It's rare to come across a dog who actually likes to take a bath, and even rarer to find a dog who doesn't immediately run outside and roll in the dirt after getting clean.

But Brady the golden retriever is such a clean freak he gives himself a bath every day, then Brady wraps himself in a towel afterwards rather than shaking water everywhere like a cur.

(YouTube Link)

Brady's humans should hire him out so he can teach other dogs the value of bathing regularly!

Go And Catch Them All, But Be Careful While Playing Pokémon Go

(Image Link)

Pokémon Go has brought lots of good things to the world of mobile gaming, bringing real life trainers together like no Pokémon product ever could, but along with the good there is always the bad.

(Image Link)

In St. Louis, Missouri, robbers set up a beacon at a PokéStop then proceeded to rob any players who responded to the signal at gunpoint, effectively using Pokémon Go to bring victims their way.

(Image Link)

In Wyoming a 19-year-old girl stumbled upon a dead body while playing Pokémon Go near the Highway 789 Bridge, leaving her with some new memory scars but zero water type Pokémon.

“I probably would have never went down there if it weren’t for [Pokémon Go],” 19-year-old Shayla Wiggins said. “But in a way, I’m thankful. I feel like I helped find his body. He could have been there for days.”

(Image Link)

And staff at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington D.C. are asking players to be respectful and stay out of the building while hunting Pokémon, because duh.

But what's worse- someone reportedly caught the poisonous gas type Pokémon called Koffing inside the museum, although the image has since been removed from Imgur.

So go, catch 'em all and meet your fellow trainers in the wild, but be safe, stay aware and make sure you don't get caught in a Team Rocket style trap!

Margot Robbie Defines 50 Australian Slang Terms In Under 4 Minutes

Margot Robbie had to ditch her Australian accent while playing Harley Quinn in the upcoming Suicide Squad movie, but that doesn't mean she has lost touch with her Aussie roots.

She's still every bit the authority on all things Australian that she was before becoming Harley, and one aspect of Australian society which she has truly mastered is the art of Aussie slang.

Here she is demonstrating her laudable knowledge of linguistic lore by defining 50 Australian Slang Terms In Under 4 Minutes for Vanity Fair.

(YouTube Link)

It's ironic Margot didn't know what "doovalacky" meant considering (according to a Google search) it's a word used when you can't remember the name of something...no worries, Miss Robbie, you still proved you're a Fair Dinkum Aussie!

Photographer Creates Long Exposure Shots Of Entire Movies

Long exposure shots can light up the night, track motion with trails and reveal all that happens in front of the lens while it's left wide open, creating a single frame record of time passed.

But what happens when you create a long exposure shot of an entire movie?

You get a ghostly image representing how long the actors and the sets appeared in the film, as well as an overall feel for the color palette used in the film.

The image directly above is Alfred Hitchcock's classic Rear Window, and as you can see Jimmy Stewart spent so much time on-screen in the film you can actually make him out in a long exposure shot.

On the other hand, the image at the top of the post is from 2001: A Space Odyssey, and while you can make out parts of the set and a few ghostly silhouettes the shot doesn't say much about the cast.

Photographer Jason Shulman captures the feel of his favorite flicks with these ethereal long exposure shots, and once you start staring at them it's hard to look away!

Epic Trailer For Dan Harmon's New Animated Series HarmonQuest

Dan Harmon has taken us back to community college, to the far reaches of the Rickstaverse and he even brought historical figures back to life just to give us a history lesson.

And now Dan is set to take us somewhere that is simultaneously really old and really new- the dark, monster infested depths of a tabletop RPG dungeon. (NSFW due to language)

(YouTube Link)

HarmonQuest is an awesome new animated series adapted from actual Pathfinder RPG sessions Dan and funny friends such as Aubrey Plaza, Chelsea Peretti, Ron Funches and Paul F. Tompkins played out in front of a studio audience on Dan's Harmontown podcast.

(YouTube Link)

The 10 episode first season will premiere on Seeso on July 14th, when it will prove comedians don't make the greatest tabletop RPG players, but they definitely make the game more fun!

A Harry Potter Style Yo Momma Joke Battle

The guys and gals who attend Hogwart's School of Wizardry have to find ways to blow off steam in-between lessons and their constant battle against the dark side of the magical arts.

Some like to get stinking drunk on Firewhisky, others train tirelessly for Quidditch tournaments and magical duels, but the most popular pastime of all is the Yo Momma joke battle.

A finely crafted zinger aimed at an opponent's unwitting mother can be more damaging than a spell, and leave a nastier mark than the one old Voldy left on Harry's head.

It's fine for the students at Hogwart's to pass the time bagging on each other via Yo Momma jokes, but leave Harry and Neville out of it because talkin' smack about their mommas is just plain mean!

Over A Thousand People Set New Human Mattress Dominoes World Record

Knocking over hundreds of human dominoes sounds like a really dangerous game, but when each participant is strapped to a mattress the game is safe enough for the folks at Guinness.

But when you're trying to set a world record for largest human mattress dominoes the tricky part isn't safety- it's getting 1,200 people lined up properly then making sure they all fall down in turn.

(YouTube Link)

Twelve hundred Aaron's Inc. employees clung to mattresses set up over 70,000 square feet of space in two exhibit halls, then they all fell down to take the Guinness World Record away from German furniture company Höffner, who set the record in 2012.

Safety PSAs Which Were Clearly Made By Lunatics

Public service announcements are usually created by advertising agencies full of people who know how to sell products and brand companies but generally know very little about education.

(YouTube Link)

These ad agencies know how to beat a message or song into our brains, how to create imagery and scenarios that stick with viewers, and how to send a message to the masses.

But they don't really know much about restraint, since over-the-top ads help them sell products, so maybe hiring them to make PSAs isn't such a good idea after all...

The "Non-Swimming" Dog Becomes The Star Of A Pooch Pool Party

(Image Link)

In every pack there are alpha leaders and omega followers, canines who are the first to jump into the pool and show the others how to act and those who doggy paddle in a blind panic.

Can you guess whether Beja, the “non-swimming” dog in this video, is an alpha or an omega?

(YouTube Link)

Beja is a regular at the Happy Tails resort in Norfolk, Virginia, and even though she has been coming to the resort for years, and knows how to swim, she'd rather stand in the shallow water and stare. Way to make the doggy pool party awkward, Beja!

The Day Of The Dead Parade In Spectre Was So Cool Mexico Wants To Do It For Real

If you believe everything you saw in the latest James Bond film Spectre, then you probably think Mexico City has an awesome Dia de los Muertos parade, and you would be wrong.

(Image Link)

The truth is- Dia de los Muertos is generally more of a solemn holiday in Mexico, devoid of galas, parades or crazy costumes.

And yet the Day of the Dead parade in Spectre looks so cool that Mexico's Tourism Minister Enrique de la Madrid Cordero wants to make it happen because “tourists are going to come looking for the carnival”.

(Image Link)

Creating a Day of the Dead parade is the logical next step for Mexico, since the country paid $14 million to appear in Spectre, and that way the Mexican people can say they got something for their money, right? (sarcasm)

Driving Down Sunset Boulevard With Angelyne

(Image Link)

As a kid growing up between Los Angeles, San Diego and Tijuana I used to encounter all sorts of characters who would become forever stuck in my mind, figures who came to represent these cities.

And the figure who came to represent Los Angeles was a bubbly woman named Angelyne, a busty cartoon character come to life seen in print and on billboards throughout the city in the 80s and 90s.

(Image Link)

Angelyne is Hollywood's original "famous for being famous" star, a woman who made herself into a star by posting her bodacious image on L.A. billboards along with her manager's phone number.

She made have led the way for Paris Hilton and Kim K., but don't hold that against her- Angelyne was just doing what she does best, being that "'50s glamour girl gone berserk" John Waters loves so much.

Marie Lodi (formerly of Jezebel) had the chance to hang out with Angelyne and go for a spin in her iconic pink Corvette as the two spent the day together talking Hollywood, politics and the art of self promotion.

How To Maximize Politeness When Holding The Door For Someone

Don't you hate it when you hold the door open for somebody who doesn't even acknowledge your existence?

Even worse for the eternally polite is the moment when you've just stepped through the doorway and entered the building and see somebody walking up to the door

Are you supposed to turn around and open the door for them too? Apparently only if they're really attractive...

(YouTube Link)

Shaun Micallef of The Micallef P(r)ogram(me) explored this very dilemma a while back in the comedy sketch “Polite Distances”, proving politeness is often a ridiculous affair.

Pinterest Baby Photo Shoots - Expectations Versus Reality

(Image Link)

W.C. Fields was famously quoted as saying “Never work with animals or children”, and that wasn't because he hated kids or critters- it's because animals and kids are too hard to control.

They don't understand why it's so important for them to hold still while the photographer takes their picture, and they become even more rambunctious when mommy or daddy tries to take the pics.

(Image Link)

All those amazing photos posted to Pinterest make people think it will be a snap to get the same results, but after a dozen or more shots they soon realize it's time to settle for "good enough".

The 10 Deadliest Gunslingers In The Old West

During the Old West era railroads helped connect the entire country, some of the biggest cities in America were built, and America set its sights on becoming a coast-to-coast nation.

But the most famous figures of the era are still the gunslingers, the guys (and a few gals) who liked to settle their disputes with six guns rather than stern words.

Gunslingers such as Jesse James, Billy the Kid, and "Wild Bill" Hickok came to represent the Wild in the Wild West, capturing the imagination of people who lived in the civilized world back east.

And yet many of the deadliest shootists from the Old West were overshadowed by the more famous names mentioned above, despite the massive body counts they had under their belt.

John Wesley Hardin is said to be "the worst bad man that Texas ever produced", who claimed to have killed 42 men and committed his first murder when he was just 15 years old.

Hardin was so quick tempered he supposedly shot a man for snoring.

"Killin' Jim" Miller is another deadly shootist time forgot, and despite being a bit of a dandy he is thought to have gunned down close to 50 men in cold blood.

Jim's life of crime began when he blew away his sister's husband with a shotgun after a disagreement, and was known to tell folks he would kill anyone for money, including politicians, marshals and Sheriff Pat Garrett himself.

Iconic Video Game Characters Reimagined On Pulp Novel Covers

Iconic video game characters are now an integral part of pop culture, and even non-gamers can identify some of them by their name and their distinct look.

Which is why they make such great crossover characters, and with a little tweaking they can become the stars of a mainstream rom-com, advertising mascots or the main characters in a series of pulp novels.

Illustrator Astor Alexander has captured our geeky imaginations with his cover art for pulp novels starring a hard-bitten Mario ready to plug Peach's captors and Geralt of Rivia- private eye.

100 Years Of Men's Underwear In Under 3 Minutes

Men rarely spare much thought on their underwear, and some gross guys can't even be bothered to change their chonies on a regular basis.

So it's safe to assume most guys don't have a clue about how far their underwear has come over the last 100 years, or how fabulous those form fitting boxer briefs actually are.

Comic Strips With Surprise Endings You Won't See Coming

Comic strips have a very short amount of time in which to tell a tale or deliver a setup and a punchline, so they're usually pretty straightforward in terms of pacing.

But good comic artists have lots of tricks in their pencil bags which they can pull out at any time in order to poke the reader in the eye, just to make sure they're still paying attention.

And when you've read as many predictable, formulaic and just plain boring comics as I have you learn to appreciate a surprise ending, whether it's happy, sad or WTF inducing.

The Most Canadian Superheroes Of All Time

(Image Link)

Wolverine may be the most well-known Canadian superhero of all time, but quite a few memorable characters have come from the Great White North including the team Alpha Flight and Deadpool.

(Image Link)

But more importantly Canada is the real world home of fictional characters who represent important firsts in the world of comic books, starting with Nelvana Of The Northern Lights.

She's Canada's first superhero and one of the first female superheroes to appear in the comics, predating Wonder Woman by a few months, and she's the first (and one of the only) Inuit superhero.

(Image Link)

As someone who loved reading Canada's answer to The Avengers as a kid I must say superhero squads don't come much more colorful or charming than Alpha Flight.

They're one of the motliest crews who ever assembled to fight villainy, with a hairy hulk named Sasquatch, a dwarf acrobat named Puck and the first openly gay Marvel superhero Northstar, Alpha Flight kept Canada strange.

Documentary Series About Guys Who Like To Dress Up Like Dogs

Some people are no longer content with simply being strange humans, so they look for ways to take their strangeness to whole new levels and shed their human skin in favor of something stranger, like a dog suit.

For some this is a fetish, for others simply a way to deal with the fact that they feel uncomfortable in their own skin, and I imagine a few dress up like dogs just for the fun of it.

Secret Life Of The Human Pups recently aired on the UK's Channel 4, exposing viewers to this bizarre subculture with roughly 10,000 "secret pups" in the UK alone. It's a dog's life indeed!

Jimmy Fallon & Paul Rudd Perfectly Recreate Styx Music Video

Jimmy Fallon has never claimed to be a comedic genius, but there's one comedy arena in which his skills really shine- the funny song.

He's pretty good at playing guitar and really good at doing impressions of famous singers, so funny songs are naturally his forte.

And when he teams up with Paul Rudd, an actor who's good at acting like he plays guitar and equally good at acting like a person in a band, you've got the perfect ingredients for a funky Styx music video recreation.

(YouTube Link)

The Fallon/Rudd version is so close to the original it's hard to decide which one's better...just kidding, Paul Rudd wins every time!

Dad Trolls His Daughter By Recreating Her Selfies

Parents may not understand their child's selfie obsession, they may not get why their kid stares at that screen all day or why they feel the need to post pics of themselves on a daily basis.

But one thing parents do "get"- how to make fun of their teens for posting stupid pictures of themselves online, just to keep the kid's swollen head from eclipsing the sun.

Proud father Burr Martin wasn't afraid to poke some fun at his daughter Cassie's selfie obsession by recreating her pics with dear old dad as the subject, but he may have gone too far.

Not because young Cassie disliked his take on her pics, because that was the point, but because Burr appears to have become a bit selfie obsessed himself!

You know what Nietzche said about "He who fights with monsters" Burr...

Strange Early Prototypes Of Stan Lee's Iconic Characters

Stan Lee is the undisputed mastermind of the comic book world, a man who brought so many iconic Marvel superheroes to life that his smilin' face has come to represent the company.

But his beautiful mind often worked in weird ways, and before many of his iconic characters could really take shape they had to go through a rough sketchy stage.

Complex characters like Magneto and the X-Men started out as simple characters with simple goals- the early Magneto was an alien being called the Metal Master who wanted to rule Earth but got clobbered by the Hulk instead.

The early X-Men were a mutant cult of sorts who lived in Tibet and used mental projection to contact a young mutant named Tad Carter, offering to protect him because "humans fear what they don't understand."

And if you think Tad looks a lot like Peter Parker your spidey sense is tingling true, because both characters were drawn by Steve Ditko, who obviously liked the look of the character so he passed it on to Peter.

The Glory Days Of Gaming

Being a gamer used to be a badge of glory earned with cold sweat, frustrated tears, hundreds of hours of play time and the occasional call to a tip line when you were tired of being stuck on a level.

But nowadays players have it easy, since games practically hold their hands while easing them through the tutorial, introduce them nicely to the game's lore and share all its secrets via strategy guides.

But veterans gamers like the GaMERCaT Samantha Whitten remember the good old days of gaming fondly, before our pets started hogging the machine...

Eerie Conspiracy Theories Which Are Actually True

Conspiracy theories usually sound so insane only a fool would actually believe in them, and while they make good subject matter for movies and TV shows they're not normally taken seriously in real life.

Theories state pharmaceutical co.s are making people sick for profit and the U.S. government stole dead babies so they could conduct experiments on them, which sound like plots for episodes of a sci-fi themed TV show.

But, like many urban myths, there's a kernel of truth hidden in these theories, and the facts are sometimes more out there than the fiction.

Big Pharma has been blamed for causing addiction to opioids and selling cut-rate drugs to poor people, but it turns out one rumor was true- Bayer's blood clotting drug made it easier to transmit HIV, and they knowingly sold the tainted drug just to make a profit.

Instead of destroying the drug after discovering this HIV transmission problem they sold it to Latin American and Asian countries, causing at least 100 people in Hong Kong and Taiwan to contract AIDS.

 photo tumblr_lqz26hd72o1qgwchvo1_500_zpsxfnjbiz8.gif

And as for the U.S. government stealing babies- it was all because of one Dr. Willard Libby, who wanted to study "the absorption of strontium-90 in human tissue, primarily bone".

Dr. Libby decided dead bodies would make the perfect test subjects, since the living don't like it when their bones are removed during testing, so around 1955 he initiated a dead baby collection program dubbed Project Sunshine.

From around 1957 to 1978 tests were conducted in secret on recently deceased babies sent to labs in the UK and US, and yet Dr. Libby won the Nobel Prize for Chemistry in 1960.

The Reason Why You Can't Photocopy Paper Currency

 photo fftfentcvq5dpqebvxly_zps7i7oc7wz.gif

People always wonder about whether defacing, copying or destroying money is against the law, questions like- How against the law is it? or Why can't I make some fake money with a photocopier for my movie?

These questions are on the tip of our tongues when currency laws come up in conversation, but people aren't asking the one question we're all curious about- what mysterious force stops us from photocopying money?

You may have heard about the Eurion constellation effect on older bills, but today's bills have a new defense system built in which makes it virtually impossible to copy- the Counterfeit Deterrence System.

This interesting video by Wendover Productions explores the mysterious Counterfeit Deterrence System which stops photocopiers and image editing software like Photoshop from printing phony bills. So much for my retirement plan!

Kris Jenner Sells Fancy Paper Clip Necklace Via Twitter, Staples Canada Strikes Back

(Image Link)

Kris Jenner hasn't made many fans over the years, and people are rightfully still blaming her for the Kardashian sisters' rise to fame because she's clearly their self obsession role model.

So it's probably not a surprise to anyone on the planet that Kris would do something greedy like sell crappy jewelry at a high markup via her Twitter account.

What is surprising, however, is the fact that Kris failed to mention how much her "jewelry" looks like a paper clip necklace Kim K. made for her mommy in a high school jewelry making class.

Of course, the Twitter community couldn't help but notice the similarity, and their responses were priceless.

But one corporate account won the Best Burn award for their crafty yet sassy response- Staples Canada.

There's one thing people always make sure to bring with them when they head to the beach- their trusty towel.
