When you're a warm-hearted person you grow up trying to be as nice to your fellow human beings as possible, but somewhere around puberty the rules change and sweet suddenly becomes creepy.
These changes to the niceness rulebook don't always involve things of a hormonal nature, but when hormones are involved it's pretty darn obvious...and totally creepy.
People who find it hard to tell sweet sentiments and actions apart from shiver inducing creepiness should take a note from illustrator Shea Strauss and learn to keep their creepy comments in their minds where they belong!
Image manipulation was a good way for people to control the messages their photos were sending to the world, as Mussolini proved when he had the horse handler removed from a 1942 photo so he would look more heroic.
And speaking of using image manipulation to shape a person's image, this infamous TV Guide cover featuring Oprah's head stuck on Ann-Margret's body caused quite a stir because it was such an obvious fake.
Problems need solutions or they become disasters, so when problems arise the solution minded leap into action and make the tough calls necessary to nip those problems in the bud.
Worried about a skyrocketing suicide rate in your country? Problem solvers in South Korea handle it by throwing funerals for the living, letting them lie in the coffin and attend their own funeral to better appreciate life.
Female workers too stressed out in the office? Japanese problem solvers came up with a suitably Japanese solution- hire hunks to wipe away their tears and make them feel better after work.
Both of those strange solutions seem to actually work, but thinking outside the box doesn't always lead to an innovative solution, as performance artist Mark McGowan learned the hard way.
He heard Prince Philip beat a fox to death during a hunt and decided to protest this royal act of animal cruelty by eating meatballs made from a Corgi that died of natural causes, Corgis being the Queen's favorite breed.
"the rise of Hollywood ushered in the city's aura of glamour and luxury. Many Hollywood films featured Middle Eastern locales, further imbuing Los Angeles with an exotic, 'dangerous' appeal. Just as the Victorians had allowed themselves to be seduced by their own constructions of Orientalism, so too did more modern Los Angeles residents fall under the embellished foreign allure of the palm tree."
Curious minds love to see how things are made, and watching machines crank out massive quantities of hockey pucks, beer, threaded bolts and crayons can be a lot of fun for both our eyeballs and our brains.
We must assume that anyone who asks the internet for "help” with their photo is looking to be roasted by Photoshop trolls, but is that actually what English diver Tom Daley had in mind when he posted this pic?
He claimed to be running a contest designated #COVERDALEY, but could he possibly have been so naive he thought posting such a request online wouldn't end in image manipulation mayhem?
The lack of dog adoption options made most gamers shrug their shoulders and Fus Ro Dah on, but dedicated dog lover Patrick Lenton wasn't going to let the game squash his dream of adopting a virtual dog.
@PatrickLenton and i have to fight like 300% harder to save my dog from being eaten by a dragon and i've honestly never been so anxious
Rich kids don't have to worry about much in life, and this lack of care is exactly what makes them become careless.
Carelessness may lead to accidents or messes to clean up, but careless criminals end up doing hard time or worse, so it's best anyone involved in illegal activity stay on their toes.
But what's a wealthy criminal to do when their kids are the ones who end up incriminating them via social media?
Posting to social media sites is a great way for rich kids to ruin their parents' lives by inadvertantly exposing their fraud schemes with flashy photos, as seen on the Instagram account richkidsofinstagram.
Investigators are using photos posted by rich kids to social media sites like Instagram to uncover hidden assets, shady business dealings and all the other criminal ways their parents are raking in the dough then lying about it.
Another cybersecurity expert explained to The Guardian his firm recently was able to seize a "newly acquired private jet" by a fraudster because his son posted a picture of him and his father in front of the jet to Instagram. Similarly, K2 Intelligence in London solved a recovery asset case when a man who claimed to have no significant valuables let his children post pictures on their $25 million yacht in the Bahamas.
All photo editors use Photoshop these days, because aside from making basic touch ups a breeze it also makes it easy to radically alter a photo, perhaps a bit too easy for all those sloppy editors out there.
Whether they're changing a model's skin color, chiseling away at body contours or simply erasing someone or some thing from a photo entirely, it's easy for editors to make obvious mistakes when they're in a rush.
Even His Holiness the Pope can't prevent a Photoshop disaster from befalling one of his photos, unless this mysterious third leg is actually one of the Vatican guards going full ninja mode...
When Peter Capaldi was a young Doctor Who fan drawing cartoons of Tom Baker at the TARDIS controls there's no way he could have known he'd someday get to play the role dearest to his heart.
But now that his geeky dreams have finally come true his drawings of the Doctor have become drawings of himself all decked out in the Twelfth Doctor's garb.
Capaldi created this far out illustration as a thank you for illustrator Rachael Stott's hard work on the Titan Comics' Doctor Who: The Twelfth Doctor Adventures series, which naturally sent her over the moon with good feels.
To further illustrate his cartooning prowess, and the fantastic effect Doctor Who has had on his life, here's a video of Peter Capaldi talking about his favorite Doctors while he sketches their portraits.
People always assume manholes lead to a massive underground sewer system like the one we saw in Ghostbusters 2, but in truth they can lead to all sorts of interesting places, especially in Milan.
That's where Italian artist Biancoshock has been busy converting the spaces below manholes and the other metal shutter doors you sometimes see in the middle of the sidewalks, into little secret rooms.
Biancoshock's street art series "Borderlife" is truly underground, and aside from the slight danger to public safety posed by these open manhole covers they're sure to make Milan feel like an even more magical place.
Each little secret space has the comforts of home, and if Milan's gnome population suddenly finds themselves homeless they can move right in to Biancoshock's small artsy spaces!
Girly girls who enjoy wearing makeup have all kinds of purchasing guidelines for their makeup based on years of experience with the lipsticks, mascaras and concealers at the center of their painted lives.
They know which colors look good on their skin and which brands of makeup suit them best and thereby know their way around the makeup section, a place few men are familiar with.
Emilia Clarke clearly enjoys playing Daenerys on the hit HBO show Game of Thrones, and even though she plays one of the most popular characters on the show she hasn't let fame go to her head.
In fact, it seems like she has more of a sense of humor about herself now than when she started on the show, at least according to the goofy pics and vids she posts online.
Her latest hilarious video gem was created for Glamour Magazine, recreating her famous "where are my dragons?" line while looking for her spanx, her wig and her kale chips. It's the mother of all funny celeb videos!
If you're going to build yourself a robot bride then you might as well build one that looks like your favorite movie star Scarlett Johansson instead of, say, one that looks like your dead mother.
And isn't it every young geek's dream to build their own beautiful movie star bot so they don't have to binge watch shows on Netflix alone?
Of course, most sad little fellows don't have fifty thousand dollars laying around, nor do they have the drive to create a robot from scratch despite their lack of mechanical skills.
But amateur bot builder Ricky Ma had the cash and the driving desire to create his very own "famous Hollywood actress", so he learned along the way:
When I started building it, I realised it would involve dynamics, electromechanics and programming. I have never studied programming, how was I supposed to code?
Additionally, I needed to build 3D models for all the parts inside the robot. Also, I had to make sure the robot's external skin and its internal parts could fit together. When you look at everything together, it was really difficult.
As a robot she's fine, but as an actress she's a bit robotic...
The “Rocking-Knit” was constructed by Damien and Colin back in 2012 and yet still wows folks four years in the future because of the science inside:
Rocking-Knit is a new interpretation of the rocking chair. It offers its user productive moments of relaxation. The to-and-fro movement of this armchair knits hats for the winter and requires no exertion whatsoever.
Despite the style of knit cap created by this futuristically old fashioned knitting machine it's not just for hipsters and Smurfs- it's for everyone who enjoys a good rocking and a warm head.
Survival horror video games can be as terrifying, strange or totally bats$#t crazy as they wanna be, but they'll always have some key gameplay components in common.
The shiny item in the corner, the health item hoarding, the save point, and the windows that reveal the horror lurking around outside will be a part of pretty much every survival horror game ever made.
But don't think of these staple elements as cheesy or predictable, think of them as your guideposts in the gruesome world you're trying to help your character navigate through and your only link to the real world.
Learning little factoids about your favorite movies can be fun, and there is a seemingly endless supply of listicles out there waiting to tell you stuff you may not know in easy to read bite sized bits.
BuzzFeed asked their Community about any obscure movie trivia they might know and they got a flood of responses; from which they plucked 4 duds and 19 corkers by my count, like this cute little number about Boo:
Making a realistic looking replica of a weapon featured in a video game is hard enough, but making a replica weapon that looks like it has survived a nuclear winter multiplies the difficulty by ten.
But bringing a weapon from Fallout 4 to life isn't supposed to be easy, it's a quest worth lots of XP and a legion of followers, so builders betters make it count.
The talented artisans at Show and Tell Props took a pile of plywood and some geeky dreams and brought Fallout 4's brutal The Last Minute Gauss Rifle to life, and while it may not be combat ready it sure looks like it can do some serious damage!
When you hear about a school bus being converted into a recreational vehicle you probably think of a hippie bus with psychedelic paintjobs or something that Otto from the Simpsons would live in.
But sometimes the bus is just the frame and engine used to convey the traveler across the country in style and comfort.
The 1984 Blue Bird school bus purchased by Steven and Lindsay for a mere $2,000 didn't look like much on the outside or the inside, but once they were done renovating it became a boxy palace on wheels.
The couple used reclaimed and recycled materials during the renovation, giving the interior a warm, cabiny feel with lots of wood and a cool corrugated metal comode.
Steven and Lindsay drove the bus from Florida to their home state of Oregon over the summer of 2014, exhaustively documenting not only the renovation but the trip back home for their website The New Oregon Trail.
It's a real trip to see what Lindsay and Steven were able to put together for under ten thousand dollars, and if their current careers don't pan out they could certainly find work as RV renovators.
