With virtually every death comes the funeral service, where people get together to bid the dearly departed farewell and hopefully get a bit of closure from the whole experience.
But these memorial gatherings also make people feel mighty anxious, as they wonder what to wear, who to bring, and whether they should attend if they're of a different faith.
As a rule the dress code is conservative and earth toned, you should bring kids because they'll brighten spirits at the service, and out of respect for the dead you should leave your religious hangups at home.
Believe it or not, there are actually gamers out there who have never played Tetris, and for their sake someone needs to deliver an honest and trustworthy review of the game so n00bs know what they're getting into.
It's hard to forget your first love, especially if they're the "one that got away" or, adversely, the one that you ran away from after a messy breakup, and most of us leave that first relationship with some unspoken sentiments.
Whether these sentiments are good or bad most exes have a burning desire to speak their mind after a breakup, so artist Röra Blue is giving them the chance to have their say with the #UnsentProject.
Röra turns unspoken sentiments people submit to her, plus the color the sender associates with their first love, into small notes she sticks up around town.
Now the exes can have their say without having to face their first loves, and the world can share a smile about the time they felt the same way about someone they once loved.
Once upon a time MTV aired a twisted satirical kiddie show called Wonder Showzen, which featured puppets doing inappropriate things, on the spot interviews that made people angry, and overdubbed clips from old kids shows like Vegetable Soup.
Wonder Showzen was obviously meant for adults and was cancelled after its second season about 10 years ago, but that didn't stop pastor Daniel Castle from condemning the show for being a gateway drug to Satan addiction.
It seems pastor Castle thinks that quaint little MTV show was the real deal, and he's not gonna stand by and watch the youth of America be "spiritually exploited" by one the most evil shows ever made.
Turns out this isn't an ordinary cat video, it's a segment from the rarely seen 1964 film The Three Lives Of Thomasina, where Thomasina gets a taste of heaven before being sent back because she has eight more lives to go.
It may predate the internet by three decades, but it's definitely the trippiest cat video I've ever seen online!
It's hard to believe that we've been driving automobiles for over a hundred years, and yet some people still don't know how to check their oil, replace an air filter or, worst of all, pump their own gas.
Think a bigger engine block is safer in a front-end collision? That giant hunk of steel will shift back towards the driver just like a small block in an accident.
Think convertibles are more dangerous than regular cars?
While that used to be true, the convertibles of today have to adhere to strict safety standards, and many models feature roll bars that protect a passenger's head in case of a rollover.
And speaking of pumping gas- did you know getting in and out of your car while at the pump can generate unsafe levels of static electricity? Don't risk your life, just wait until you're done pumping before you get back in your car!
Not everyone has the time, artistic talent or dedication to make show accurate costumes and accessories when they feel like cosplaying, and up until recently that meant buying good looking props at a premium.
But now Marvel Comics and Hasbro have teamed up to make all of our superheroic cosplay dreams come true by releasing an incredibly detailed, totally accurate and actually affordable line of accessories.
Both Captain America's shield and Iron Man's helmet will sell for $100 each, which is a small price to pay when you consider some prop builders charge hundreds for props that don't quite have the right look.
Many of the accessories in the line are modeled after, if not cast straight from, the props used in the current Marvel movies, so saying they're spot on is an understatement.
And imagine all the oohs and aahs you'll hear when you detach the face mask from Iron Man's helmet and let everyone get a peek inside!
It's hard to watch this video without wondering how long this guy has gone without a Double Double, and why he chose to eat in instead of taking it home, because this is the kind of chowing down most decent folks only do at home!
The microwave has been an integral part of the home kitchen for over half a century, and yet we're constantly told it emits radiation, makes food unhealthy and cooking anything covered in foil can start a fire.
But we've all knows somebody who stands right in front of the microwave oven while they're food cooks or sticks tin foil covered dishes in the micro and doesn't even bat an eyelash as sparks fly inside the machine. So what's the real deal?
Truth is foil is fine in the microwave as long as it covers less than 1/4 of the food, and as long as the sheet is kept flat it won't spark, since the sparks are caused by the crinkles in the foil.
It's a sad but true fact that most people who are missing for years, if not decades, are either deceased or really don't want to be found, but there are a few people out there who are lost due to unusual circumstances.
In the case of Edgar Latulip the unusual nature of his missing persons case was caused by a head injury which resulted in amnesia, and for 30 years he lived under an identity he'd assumed after the injury.
The developmentally disabled man went "missing" in 1986 at age 21, but strangely he'd taken up residence just 120 kilometers from his hometown of Kitchener, Ontario:
A police report stated Latulip, who was considered developmentally delayed and had the mental capacity of a 12-year-old, may have taken a bus to Niagara Falls. A missing persons report also said Latulip suffered from mental health problems.
In fact, police said, he travelled to St. Catharines, about 120 kilometres southeast of his hometown.
Shortly after arriving, he fell and suffered a head injury, Const. Philip Gavin of the Niagara Regional Police told CBC News. This caused him to have limited memory of his past and who he was. He created a new identity for himself.
On Jan. 7, Latulip met with a social worker and told her he thought he was somebody else, Gavin said. The social worker found his missing persons case file and police were then called in. Latulip volunteered to have a DNA test done and on Monday, the results came back indicating he was Latulip.
Okay, so it's funny and fantastically punny, it's Deadpool so whaddya expect.
But the guy wearing the mask Ryan Reynolds made sure the video also contained a serious message that men would take seriously after hearing it delivered in a not-so-serious manner. I laughed, I cried, I learned, what about you?
Michael Ridge wanted to unleash the true pain and heartache hidden deep inside the grooves of that classic Poison single, so he attached a contact mic to a branch from a rose bush and let the thorns draw out the tears.
It seems some people don't like McDonald's very much, and whether the hate is directed at their food, their corporate practices or their head clown Ronald it's a hate that burns hotter than the inside of a cherry pie.
But nobody hates on Mickey Dee's like those who had to walk inside to order because the drive thru was full. (Video NSFW due to language)
Video games are seen as an important and integral part of pop culture nowadays, and even folks who don't care about gaming may find themselves using phrases rooted in gaming culture once in a while.
Slowly but surely terms like pwned, MMO, sandbox world, cut-scene, PVP and saved game have crept into the mainstream vernacular, and now thanks to Julia Lepetit and Andrew Bridgman of Dorkly you can add some new phrases to your geeky collection.
Because isn't it better to use pop culture inspired phrases that are timeless and relatable, rather than trying to stay on fleek with your bae?
Speaking of small town kooks- Larry, Darryl and Darryl were so popular after their appearance on the second episode they were made part of the regular cast from season 2 on.
And although both Darryl and Darryl were classically trained actors with loads of experience they were cast in non-speaking parts, and their contracts forbid them from speaking to the press or appearing in public as the Darryls.
Some game companies are downright lazy about creating cover art for their games, and they'll often simply pose a few character models, run off a render and call that a cover.
But those of us who fondly remember the days when companies hired artists to create slick cover art for our favorite games are longing to see a hand drawn game cover again, official or otherwise.
Unfortunately, the only hand drawn video game cover art pieces to be found are those created by employees at retail stores like GameStop, and no matter how funny or fantastic the piece who wants to pay those high GameStop prices!
I first wrote about James and his delightful correspondence with Solomon in this Neatorama article, but seeing him deliver a TED Talk about his days of spammer trolling makes the whole surreal experience seem like a lot of fun.
If only all spammers were as persistent and gullible as Solomon Odonkoh...
The animators at Pixar are all grown folks, adults, over the legal age for everything and absolutely normal in every adult way, including a healthy libido.
That can be easy to forget when you consider most of the movies they make really cater to kids, keeping that PG vibe that made them such good friends with Disney in the first place.
But adults sometimes draw and animate stuff for other adults to enjoy, and back in 2003 animators Bert Klein and Teddy Newton from Pixar created this risque short called Boys Night Out. (Video is NSFW-ish)
Even though the storyline in Boys Night Out is all sorts of wrong, since it involves a stepfather and his underage stepson bonding at a strip club, this retro styled short is still quite charming, and the punchline will knock your socks off!
Each of the 48 one bedroom units in the Arcade Providence start at $550/month, and the seventeen stores on the ground floor get to stay open for business proving that, for some, shopping really is a lifestyle.
I will be the first to admit that my knowledge of toucans is largely based on Toucan Sam from the Fruit Loops commercials and that little plaque in front of their cage at the zoo that tells you where they're from and what they eat.
But despite my ignorance on the subject I don't think I've ever heard of toucans being particularly cuddly birds before I saw this video starring Ripley the toucan, who seems to think he's a lap dog rather than a long billed bird.
Visitors to the South Korean aquarium where this video was shot had no idea they'd be learning a lesson about nature's cruel sense of humor that day, but now they know the aquarium stocks their tanks with the freshest seafood money can buy!
Alternate history stories are compelling to read or watch, and they also make for really fun video games, but creating alternate history art seems hard for an artist to do well.
For one thing the viewer would have to know which historical period or event the artist is referencing, and then the whole thing would have to be rendered realistically enough to visually tell the tale for you.
Jakub Rozalski's paintings have all of the elements of a perfect alt history art piece in place, visually transporting us to another time that never truly existed, at least not in our dimension.
For instance- what would Poland's January Uprising of 1863 against Russian rule have looked like if the Polish insurgents used mechs to help them fight for freedom?
Maybe your bar is full of musicians and band geeks rather than circus folk?
Install a urinal they'll remember, like these brassy basins found in the Bell Inn in Sussex, England, and patrons will be tooting their horns to everyone they know about your awesome urinals.
And you can still convey a strong theme without going too crazy with your urinal budget, like this guillotine setup found in Rheinfels Castle, Germany that makes you appreciate all that you still have in this world.
