Cartoon Network Should Seriously Reconsider Making Back To Backspace

Cartoon Network has introduced us to great shows like Teen Titans GO!, Adventure Time, The Misadventures of Flapjack, Regular Show and Samurai Jack just to name a few, but sadly some equally great shows have yet to make it past the pilot episode stage.

Back To Backspace is one of those shows that Cartoon Network should seriously reconsider turning into a series because it's oddball and interesting and fun enough to become their next big hit! Here's the blurb:

With every stroke of every backstroke key around the world, deleted information beams into a dimension of digital detritus. Here, an organization staffed by a motley cluster of deleted creatures organize every flub and failure and determine the fate of each one.

See Seven Ancient Ruins As They Would Have Looked In Their Prime

Every year millions of people flock to the sites of the ancient historical sites to see what's left of those amazing structures our ancestors built, and every year these ruins of history continue to degrade and look less like their former selves.

So artists from the travel website Expedia digitally reconstructed ancient ruins like the Parthenon, Nohoch Mul Pyramid, Cobá and Milecastle 39, Hadrian's Wall, so we can see how they may have looked in their prime with an animated return to their former glory.

It's kind of fun to imagine what each one will look like in its final original form then watch the animation unfold and see if you were right!

Creepy Ways Modern Life has Become Like Science Fiction

Science fiction is only fiction until someone figures out how to make the science a reality, and as scientific technology progresses the sci-fi stories of the past become the strange realities of today.

There are two specific ways in which the now reminds me of the near future in William Gibson's Neuromancer- you can sell your internal organs at will for cash and the "cyber homeless" are now living in internet cafes.

(Image Link)

In Iran it is totally legal to buy and sell kidneys, so people post signs advertising their kidney for sale around major transplant centers in Tehran, including their blood type for a quick match.

Once there's a sale the person visits the chop shop transplant center and the organ is removed and cold, hard rials are acquired.

(Image Link)

The decline of the Japanese middle class has made it hard for men (specifically in their 30s and 50s) to find work, so no work means no home means living in an internet cafe for fifteen bucks a night, which includes a shower and laundry service.

Now that might not sound too bad for fifteen bucks until you consider how tiny the space actually is that they now live in, essentially like living in a closet.

Times When People Suddenly Became Disney Princesses

(Image Link)

People think you need to be cursed, possess some sort of magical ability or have some evil a-hole who wants you dead to be a Disney princess, but all you really need is a good rapport with animals and a well timed photo to give you that fairy tale hero vibe.

(Image Link)

Friendly woodland critters are a big reason why people are mistaken for real life Disney princesses, and since they seem to be getting friendlier by the day the world is becoming one big Disney princess parade.

(Image Link)

Just look at this kid who seems to have a strange power over parrots- can't you just hear him belting out a princess-style song as his parrot friends help him get dressed for the ball?

Jeff Goldblum Answers The Web's Most Searched Questions About Him

Jeff Goldblum is one of the least afraid actors in Hollywood, and his effortlessly cool demeanor makes me think he must be a descendant of Fonzi and therefore quite magical to hang out with.

But since I'll probably never get to meet the guy, much less hang out with him, I'll have to get to know him by watching this fun Autocomplete Interview video by WIRED instead.

That way I can find out fun facts about Jeff, like the fact that he has two sons and does not in fact have a stutter, and the video also answers one of the most important questions of all time- does Jeff Goldblum song? Why yes, he does song!

5 Tips For Writing Comics

The journey of the comic artist takes place on a road full of steep learning curves, potholes of pain and dark dead end roads devoid of inspiration, but if you keep on truckin' you'll end up with something that resembles a decent comic strip.

And while people may not get your strip or find much enjoyment in reading it you'll have the satisfaction of knowing you followed in the footsteps of legends such as Jim Davis, Gil Keane and Berkeley Breathed.

Of course, if you look too closely at their works for inspiration you'll soon find your strip resembling the strips they created, making you nothing but a copycat, so don't look at their stuff too long before you write your strip!

This life lesson for comic artists and more are presented here in comic strip format by CollegeHumor's Karina Farek, so you can learn from her mistakes and be a more better comic artist than her. Or perhaps even a more bestest comic artist...

The Greatest Songs From The Simpsons

The Simpsons isn't a musical show per se, since not every episode features a musical number, but over the last three decades the show's creators have treated us to some great original songs that really get stuck in your head.

(YouTube Link)

Songs like "Baby on Board", "Who Needs The Kwik-E-Mart?" and "See My Vest" stick with you seemingly for the rest of your life, lying dormant in your brain until you hear a few verses sung or read about them on a list such as this.

(YouTube Link)

And let's face it- as far as earworms go I'd rather have "Baby on Board" bouncing around inside my head than some cheesy modern pop song created using the same algorithms that gave the Bieber-bot sentience.

Psychedelic Panther - His Combat Abilities Will Blow Your Mind!


Psychedelic Panther by Albertocubatas

The people of Wakanda had been waiting for a hero like the Black Panther to take them out of their isolationist shells for quite some time, in fact they'd been waiting so long some Wakandans were still wearing their old psychedelic gear from the 60s when he finally showed up. There were bell bottoms and dashikis a plenty, and afros as far as the eye could see, and a few of the Wakandans were even wearing those weird two-colored sunglasses, which really tripped T'Challa out. So when the Panther took the mantle and agreed to rule Wakanda he declared their first mission to be a fashion update- so he took everyone to the mall for some new threads!

Ottomatic Zen - Don't Just Drive The Bus, Be The Bus


Ottomatic Zen by Ilcalvelage

Otto figured out the secret to inner happiness long ago, but he's not sharing that secret with anyone because he's not actually aware that he's figured out the secret to inner happiness. In fact, Otto doesn't really know what he knows because he's too busy living in the now, which is probably a good thing for the kids from Springfield Elementary because if his mind starts to wander his bus might start wandering all over the road too!

The Marshalls

The Marshalls have an ordinary last name but they are far from an ordinary family, but it's not their big bug eyes, unusual fashion sense or lack of conversation that makes them strange- it's the dark secret they have locked away in the basement.

The Marshalls is a stop motion animation short created by Adeena Grubb, with music by Daniel Beja, and what it lacks in depth of story it makes up for with some super creepy vibes!

What Do Dogs See When They Watch TV?

My dog doesn't care much for TV unless there are noisy birds on the screen, but other dogs I've had would sit on the couch with me and watch TV like little humans, paying closer attention to the shows on the screen than I did.

Their canine channel surfing always made me wonder how much they were actually seeing of what was happening on the screen- were they actually watching shows or just following sound and movement?

Hank Green answered this age old question on this episode of SciShow, explaining how a dog's TV watching habits may vary by breed and discussing how a dog's eyes, which are more attuned to flickering yet see less colors, see TV differently than you and me.

Wanted Cat

If a little kid carrying a cardboard box comes up to you and asks you if you want a cat you should say yes immediately and free that poor kitty before it suffocates.

But maybe you should ask that kid for their name first, because if they say their last name is Schrödinger you may not want to see what's inside that box... (Comic by Raph Comic)

Imagine waking up with no recollection of who you are, where you are or how you got to be where you are in life...*shivers* that sounds like an absolute nightmare, especially considering you might have to live your life all over again...

A Tasty Way To Prove The Earth Isn't Flat

There really shouldn't be a debate going on in the 21st century about whether the Earth is flat or not, but there is, and it's every bit as backwards as it sounds considering Pythagoras explained the Earth is round over 2,000 years ago.

However, if you find yourself in the middle of a debate with a flat earther just show them this comic strip and shut them up with a smile, because the creator of Cujko Comics is definitely on to something with this whole "world sandwich" theory. I mean, who's gonna argue with a sandwich, right?

Things That Are Bigger On The Inside

The laws of physics forbid an item from being bigger on the inside, so in order to find things that are larger inside than out we must forego standard science and head into the realm of science fiction.

There we can find amazing objects with interior spaces roomy enough for Time Lords, Grouches and families of wizards to chill in, the perfect places for a daydream.  (Illustration by Hello With Cheese)

Meet The Daring Female Pilots Who Bombed Nazis By Night

Female combat pilots were virtually unheard of before World War II, and while the Women Airforce Service Pilots were making history in the U.S. the Russian Night Witches were preparing to bomb Nazis by night.

The 588th Night Bomber Regiment, aka the Night Witches, were an all-female group of brave Russian fliers who went on bombing raids by the light of the moon in plywood biplanes like true heroes:

All told, the pioneering all-female 588th Night Bomber Regiment dropped more than 23,000 tons of bombs on Nazi targets. And in doing so, they became a crucial Soviet asset in winning World War II.

The Germans nicknamed them the Nachthexen, or “night witches,” because the whooshing noise their wooden planes made resembled that of a sweeping broom. “This sound was the only warning the Germans had. The planes were too small to show up on radar… [or] on infrared locators,” said Steve Prowse, author of the screenplay The Night Witches, a nonfiction account of the little-known female squadron. “They never used radios, so radio locators couldn’t pick them up either. They were basically ghosts.”

The squadron was the brainchild of Marina Raskova, known as the “Soviet Amelia Earhart”—famous not only as the first female navigator in the Soviet Air Force but also for her many long-distance flight records. She had been receiving letters from women all across the Soviet Union wanting to join the World War II war effort. While they had been allowed to participate in support roles, there were many who wanted to be gunners and pilots, flying on their own. Many had lost brothers or sweethearts, or had seen their homes and villages ravaged. Seeing an opportunity, Raskova petitioned Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin to let her form an all-female fighting squadron.

On October 8, 1941, Stalin gave orders to deploy three all-female air force units. The women would not only fly missions and drop bombs, they would return fire—making the Soviet Union the first nation to officially allow women to engage in combat. Previously, women could help transfer planes and ammunition, after which the men took over.

A Twisted Little Love Story About A Girl Named CINDY

Love is supposed to be a good thing in our lives, a positive force that brings out the best in two people and makes them grow in ways no other force of nature can, but more often than not love just hurts the ones who dare to love.

Some people take the pain in stride, others let it twist them up inside, but Cindy's mom took the pain of love lost and turned it into a curse- which she passed down to her poor little daughter. Can Cindy move past the black cloud her mom cast down upon her head and let the light of love shine down upon her?

CINDY- A Love Story is a twisted animated short with amazing looking art created by Marco Bucci and Bryce Sage, a fairy tale for those who feel like every romantic relationship they ever have is doomed.

Digital Artist Uses His Skills To Turn Animals From Ordinary To Fantastic

Animals aren't known for having vivid imaginations, but the wildlife which we share the world with has captured the human imagination since the very beginning, inspiring artists to create some really wild artwork.

Old Computer Tutorial Video Edit Of Woman Repeatedly Saying "Floppy Diskette"

There's something about the name "floppy diskette" that has always sounded a bit crude, and I couldn't help but crack a smile at the mention even when people shortened it to "floppy".

Does that mean I have a perverted mind?

Perhaps, but no matter how pure your mind is you'll agree that "floppy diskette" is an unfortunate name for a product after hearing this woman repeat it over and over again in this video tutorial edit from back in the good ol' days of computing.

A Surreal Animated Short About A Guy Who's Married To An Anthropomorphic Chicken

Surreal animated shorts are often too bizarre and too obscure for most viewers to sink their teeth into, but Hen, His Wife is easily accessible to all- even if not everyone understands the symbolist subtexts.

Hen, His Wife is a bizarre short created by Pilot animation studio back in 1989 about a guy who ignores his wife, who is an anthropomorphic chicken, but there's a lot more going on beneath the absurdist surface story:

Igor Kovalyov, one of the studio’s founders, directed a tale so densely symbolic that it's tough to interpret. In terms of narrative, the film is about a family couple in which the husband, dressed in prison-like garments, ignores his dutiful wife – an anthropomorphic hen – until a stranger arrives and jolts them from their absurd coexistence. The plot itself, however, makes little sense without interpreting the abundant symbols of impotence, autoeroticism, and sexuality. Kovalyov’s wordless, surreal drama easily captures one’s attention, leaving a lingering unease in its wake, even without Freudian analysis.

This Solar-Powered RV Runs Without Fuel Or Charging Stations

There are lots of people out there who would like to tour the country in an RV but simply can't afford the fuel costs, and as the cost of gas continues to rise this dream of RVing the nation slips further away.

So the German RV company Dethleffs has come up with a great invention to make our RV dreams come true- a solar powered motorhome.

A post shared by stranddeko (@stranddeko) on Aug 29, 2017 at 9:37pm PDT

The "e.home" is covered in solar panels so it can soak up all the solar energy it needs to keep its 107-horsepower electric motor and all the components inside the RV running for as long as you need to make new memories on the road.

And just for fun Dethleffs even included a starlight projection system over the alcove bed, so you can space out in style before bed.

Creative Alternatives To Expensive Cat And Dog Toys And Supplies

Cats and dogs don't care how much we spend on the pet toys and accessories we buy for them, and even if they sneak a peek at the tag they have no idea what they're looking at because they can't read and don't understand how money works.

So those who spend a fortune on their pets are spending that money to make themselves feel good, not their pets, and should probably find a pet charity to donate to instead of throwing away all that money.

(YouTube Link)

HouseholdHacker put together these clever cat and dog "hack" videos for the frugal pet owner who also likes to do a bit of DIY, presenting simple yet smart ideas that work like a charm including:

  • Turn your mismatched socks into cat toys by filling them with paper and tying them off on the top, or a dog toy by putting an empty water bottle inside the sock instead
  • Use a muffin tin to slow down dogs who eat too fast, and cover each bowl with half a tennis ball to give them an added challenge
  • Mix water, Dawn dish soap and white vinegar to make a cheap flea shampoo
  • Add pumpkin to cat food to help with their hairballs

Chess, According To A Four- And Six-Year-Old

Chess is typically thought of as being too strategic, difficult and slow for little kids to handle, especially considering many kids play games on their own smartphone or tablet these days.

But six-year-old Annabelle and four-year-old Eloise clearly didn't get the memo about chess being too slow for kids, so they absolutely adore the game and are quite good at it.

They're not chess prodigy Misha good, but their enthusiasm for chess will give you hope for the future of analog gaming.

The Most Useless Superpowers

You don't have to be a comic reader to think it would be cool to have superpowers, as humans have dreamt of having the power of flight, indestructibility and super strength long before comic books even existed.

But with so many superheroes populating the pages of comic books some characters are bound to get stuck with some incredibly useless powers.

Glob Herman is a mutant with see-thru skin made of a paraffin-wax-like substance, which makes him useless unless you're looking for a giant living candle who will also scream in pain while he melts away.

Kite Man has the astounding ability to be an "excellent hang-glider pilot", and if that weren't enough his name is Charlie Brown, named after the Peanuts character who had absolutely no luck with kites.

(YouTube Link)

This Looper video counts down some of the most useless superpowers in comic book history, and makes you wonder what the creators were inhaling when they came up with such ridiculous characters. Maybe the fumes given off by a melting Glob Herman?
