Every time you go down the aisles of a grocery or department store you see product labels vying for your attention, boldly claiming their products are new, improved and give you more for your money.
But you probably shouldn't listen to those labels- because many of them are telling lies.
They use words and phrases like "organic", "made with real fruit", "no cholesterol". "heart healthy" and "grass fed" to fool us into thinking we're paying more for higher quality products.
The use of deceptive wording has become standard practice on product labels, but the problem isn't just what the labels omit- it's the things they mention on purpose to trick us into choosing their brand over others.
TaylorMadeClips has created a bunch of "blueberry inflation" videos featuring a woman being transformed into a blueberry out of the blue, and surprisingly only a few of them are overtly NSFW.
And while these videos aren't exactly porn there's definitely something sick and smutty about them, so if you ever meet a self-professed fan of "blueberry inflation" tell them "You get nothing! Good day sir!"
Halloween parties have changed quite a bit over the last decade due to the mainstreaming of geek culture, and now instead of a few fanboys and fangirls dressing geeky for the party every Tom, Dick and Harry comes as Clark Kent.
This geeky costume overload tends to make nerds rage, but they get their revenge by showing up in a clever costume that stands out in a sea of Harleys, Deadpools and random comic book movie characters.
So if you head out to a Halloween party this year don't be surprised if you see lots of the same super suits and trendy pop culture costumes, but if you want to stand out don't dress up at all!
Most artists will agree perspective drawing skills can only be developed with lots of practice, and a proper perspective drawing needs to be properly plotted out first, but what if you just need to bust out a sketch?
There has got to be a quicker and easier way to plot and sketch out a fairly accurate two-point perspective drawing, right?
There is, and as you can see in this video shared on Instagram by @architectdrw all you need is an elastic string and a paper clip to bust out a surprisingly accurate sketch.
Snapchat didn't revolutionize the world of social media apps, nor did it give us a bunch of amazing features we hadn't seen before.
But the app has made some silly dreams come true- like the dream of giving your baby a beard. Not your idea of fun? Maybe it's a dad thing.
Snapchat lets dads apply a filter beard to their unsuspecting infants while shooting videos and pics on their phones, and yet, as the dad in this video from AFV found out, Snapchat filters aren't programmed to handle sneezes.
Are you on Facebook and friends with more than just your immediate family? Then you've probably encountered people who suck at Facebooking, meaning they don't seem to understand how the site works.
They invite you to their events even though you live five states away, they market their crappy business by spamming their FB friends or, worst of all, they flood you with a never ending stream of game invites.
These Facebook Failers make you wonder why you still have an account, but thanks to social media naturalist The Oatmeal we can spot and block these cretins before they make us delete our accounts.
GO out catching monsters for your pocket during this time of year and you may get more than you bargained for, but not in a good way. For this is the time of Samhain, when magic is in the air and those dark and spooky ghost type pocket monsters are everywhere, waiting to waylay wanna-be trainers and scare up some fun. If you should ever find yourself face-to-shadow with a ghost type monster such as Gengar or Gourgeist don't worry- they can't hurt you if you can outrun them!
Warn your fellow trainers about the danger of playing GO during All Hallow's Eve with this Shadow Tag t-shirt by Miski, it's mega-spooky and mega-cool!
Their rivalry has transcended all superheroic universes and now borders on the ridiculous, because those two speedsters seem to have gone MAD! Strange things can happen when you run so fast you tear holes in reality, but when you're using your full speed force to run for your life you go forward and don't look back. That's the problem with rivals and rivalrie- they push you into making silly, and potentially catastrophic, decisions because your mind is set on VS mode, but every speedster knows hasty decisions will one day blow up in your face.
I spy with my little eye an amazing, astounding, and very flashy Flash VS Reverse Flash t-shirt by Soulkr, it's the bomb!
Scooby and the gang celebrate Halloween just like everyone else, and they have fun dressing up and scaring the creeps they're chasing right back, but this year Scooby's got a surprise for both the bad guys and the gang- because he's actually dead. Well, technically he's undead, a reanimated corpse brought back by a strange chemical he encountered in the old abandoned toy factory, and death hasn't diminished his appetite one bit. But Scooby Snax and mile high sandwiches aren't cutting the mustard anymore, because Scooby Doo is out for fresh meat, and the Mystery Machine is starting to look like a lunch truck on wheels...
Dress appropriately for the Halloween season with this The Mystery Bunch by AndreusD, it's a new spin on an old classic that's sure to make your fellow fans howl with approval!
People have fully exploited any loopholes they can find in the rules regarding service dogs, and now it's not uncommon to see chihuahuas and other tiny dogs sporting the service vest like they're the real deal.
And there are people strutting around with service pigs, cats, snakes, parrots and even a service pony, but I can't recall ever seeing a service duck in action- until now.
The Bank of England made monetary history when they released their new plastic polymer five pound note- a futuristic bill that's supposed to be stronger than the old bills, with more security features and less environmental impact.
But they also unknowingly created a new generation of record spinning DJs- because the edge of the plastic polymer note can be used to play vinyl records.
The thousands of frames that make up a TV show are edited together into an episode in order to tell a cohesive story to the audience, so it's not really fair to make assumptions about the show based on a single frame.
But the internet is full of people with really strong opinions about shows they've never seen, and if you post a single frame screenshot from a show and ask them to explain what's going on they'll answer.
And sometimes their responses actually sound like an episode of the show, which means these people are lying when they say they've never watched the show or the show was written via algorithm.
The human body is like a supervillain's laboratory, and once you figure out how to keep the fluids from exploding everywhere you start to realize what that walking lab of yours can do.
It creates fearsome imagination monsters to keep us up at night, hormones that turn hairless kids into shaggy beasts, and various unpleasant substances which can be used as girlfriend repellant.
Once we've learned how to use our labs to further our plans for world domination we're hit with another villainous twist- lab rental fees, energy costs and the debt incurred when we decided to expand our lab's database.
Wheel of Fortune isn't the hardest game show on television, nor is it the show contestants go on to prove how smart they are, but when someone solves a puzzle with just one letter it's still mighty impressive.
Enthusiastic word nerd Robert Santoli went on Wheel of Fortune to win, and after guessing a puzzle with only one letter he continues to crush the game by solving puzzles with just a few letters in place.
Robert's performance was so impressive people thought he'd cheated, but the show cleared him and paid him his $76k in prize money.
So how did Robert win big at Wheel of Fortune? He studied the show for over 10 years, creating spreadsheets to study letter and word patterns found in the show, especially the link between subjects and certain words or phrases.
Nicolas Cage is a hero created by the people for the people, and whether you're a fan or a super fan you have to admit one thing- Nic Cage is quite a character both on and off the screen.
Nic's latest fictional life will play out in the new movie Army of One, in which he stars as Gary Faulkner- an unemployed weirdo who hears the voice of god telling him to go capture Bin Laden. (Barely NSFW due to language)
Army of One is loosely based on the true story of "Rocky Mountain Rambo" Gary Faulkner, who claims he went to Pakistan eleven times to hunt Bin Laden before being arrested by Pakistani police. Sounds a little too sane for a Nic Cage role...
New things are shiny, new things are precious, and new things make us feel good for a little while before we're on to the next new, shiny, precious thing.
Even though our brain says we should save money for a rainy day, warning us the happiness provided by material possessions is fleeting, our heart still swells every time we bring home a shiny new thing.
And so, as this comic by The Awkward Yeti shows, the battle will continue as long as we have our hearts set on owning new things, so basically for the rest of our lives.
This frightful factoid video by Looper reveals what could have become of the Camp Crystal Lake killer, and how all of the iconic pieces such as the mask, the spooky sound and the mommy lovin' backstory fell into place.
It's lucky for all the young, impressionable viewers out there that The Smurfs crew edited out what they did of the show, or else kids would have been taught an extreme life lesson when Gargamel finally caught up with poor Jokey. For the show only spoke on matters of smurfberries and sorcery, but Gargamel was also a renowned chef and gourmand, and he had always wanted to try preparing a main course that included blue steak. Naturally, he had to taste the blue meat for himself, to see what all the fuss was about, so Papa and Smurfette were forced to watch in helpless horror as Gargamel bit Jokey's head off...and that happened on the third day of shooting the show! A new Smurf was brought in to replace Jokey and the incident was never spoken of again, until Gargamel released that infernal autobiography...
This Success!!! t-shirt by Ed Harrington is morbidly maniacal and sure to make your fellow fans sneer like Azrael, but kids who see the design will probably be scarred for life...just sayin'!
We tend to think of our interpersonal relationships as far more sophisticated and complex than the relationships we share with our pets, but the two are more alike than we'd care to admit.
Both involve choosing a partner, sharing meals and affection, learning to make each other happy and discovering how to communicate those feelings words can't describe.
There are plenty of dog days during these relationships too, as we try to live in the same house without tearing each other apart and struggle to set boundaries in regards to strangers.
But as this comic by Robert Brown shows the main thing both relationships have in common is the crap- the emotional crap, the crappy gifts we buy for each other, and the times we literally come face-to-feces with each other's crap.
Most people want to take a shower after a food fight, but many diehard foodies wish they could wear food in their hair all day long without smelling like a trash bin...and now they can thanks to Fake Food Hatanaka!
The food-shaped accessory fabricators at Fake Food Hatanaka started out making plastic meals for restaurant window displays, but now they've branched out into the world of high foodie fashion.
So if you've ever dreamed of wearing freshly cooked bacon around your wrist, or a fancy dessert in your hair, then Fake Food Hatanaka is making your strange food fashion dreams come true!
You'd think his honorary status as one of the Super Mario Bros. would make him a more popular character, but instead his name is forgotten, his manhood is questioned, and he ends up looking for love in all the wrong places.
It's not Luigi's fault that he's one of the most underrated and misunderstood characters in video games, the developers at Nintendo never seem to know what to do when a game involves Mario and Luigi too.
Ask a little kid "guess what?", wait for them to say "what?" then reply "chicken butt" and watch their face light up at the absurdity of what you just said, either that or they'll yell something like "you're not funny!" and storm off.
Kids are weird, which is why they're likely to repeat the phrase "guess what? chicken butt" after hearing it for the first time, spreading it through the schoolyard like a linguistic flu bug.
But, like many of the silly rhymes kids love to repeat, the origin of the reference is complicated and far from common knowledge, just like the fact that butchers used to call barrels full of chicken shoulders "butts".
Job hunting can really crush your spirits, especially when you've put in time getting a degree, effort learning relevant skills and energy working for years only to find you lack a degree in forklift operation.
It seems like most employers are looking for special skills these days, and even entry level jobs want multilingual applicants with five years of experience, which just isn't working.
So let's all do like the guy in this comic by Jacob Andrews and revolt against the job market...until we find a job that accepts our questionable resume as truth!
It's hard for a cat lover to understand how someone could hate our feline friends, especially in their compact and ultra-cute kitten form, but there are cat haters among us- and they look just like you and I.
They often dress up their disdain for cats by claiming cats hate them or that they're allergic, but there's clearly more to the story than mere allergies or bad vibes.
The question is- can cat haters maintain their irrational hatred after hanging around a bunch of adorable kittens?
As a rule superheroes don't kill unless it's absolutely necessary, and writers have been using this moral dilemma to their advantage from the very beginning.
In fact, so many story arcs would have ended before they even began if superheroes would just kill the bad guys and get it over with, but heroes are more likely to kill one of their own than their wicked foes.
Wolverine is often seen as a savage fellow and therefore has no problem killing his foes, but one kill definitely weighs heavy on his conscience- the time he had to kill Jean Grey.
Jean Grey was resurrected by the Phoenix Force hoping to become Dark Phoenix once again, but this time Jean was prepared to fight the Phoenix- with a little help from Wolverine.
Logan was forced to kill the woman he loved over and over again, weakening the Phoenix Force so Jean could separate herself from it, and all he knew was murdering Jean Grey was the only way to save her from that cosmic force.
Wolverine isn't the only superhero who has killed a loved one- Namor the Sub-Mariner was also forced to kill his lady love for the greater good.
But Wolverine isn't the only hero who had to kill the love of his life for the greater good- Prince Namor the Sub-Mariner
It seems his beloved Marrina's alien DNA had a very strange reaction when she became pregnant with Namor's child- the pregnancy transformed her into a gigantic sea creature.
Namor was forced to do the "right" thing by using the Black Knight's Ebony Blade to slay Marrina, which may have contributed to Namor's anti-hero conversion.
