But eating beef is just the beginning of the meat-stravaganza, because knowing how the cow became a bunch of different cuts in the butcher's case is just as important for the carne connoisseur as knowing how to cook your favorite cut.

Images From Inside The Wreckage Of The Costa Concordia Cruise Ship

Taking a cruise is supposed to be a memorable experience, leaving the guests feeling like they got their money's worth as they floated along having fun and dancing their cares away.

However, those who were aboard the Costa Concordia in January, 2012 had no idea they were embarking on a nightmarish journey that would end with 32 lives lost when the Concordia wrecked off the coast of Isola del Giglio in Italy.

The wreckage was left to rot in Genoa, and incredibly German photographer Jonathan Danko Kielkowski found it unguarded and totally open for exploration when he arrived to snap some pics for his book Concordia:

“Against all odds, I find the shipwreck freely accessible – neither fences nor security personnel. Rather, the doors are open, lights are turned on, no man can be seen”.

Although the tragedy has forever marred the ship's reputation, at least we have Jonathan's photos to remind us how regal and beautiful the inside of the Costa Concordia once was.

Two Single People Get Married For A Week

Some people are what they call "terminally single", also known as "undateable", meaning they have a really hard time finding anyone who "gets" them and therefore might end up "dying alone".

These forever alone folks never seem to land a relationship that lasts and will therefore forever wonder what it's like to get married...or they could just do like the two in this silly social experiment by BuzzFeedVideo and get married for a week! (Video contains NSFW language)

(YouTube Link)

The two singles in the video agreed they wouldn't want to marry each other again, but they may live to eat those words and look back on this video as the time they met and married their soulmate...Naaaaaaaah!

Common Plants That Can Be Deadly For Pets

Pet owners often assume their cats and dogs will instinctively know which plants are safe to eat and which ones are toxic.

But for some reason domesticated animals will chew on just about anything if given the chance, including common plants that are actually pure poison for pets.

If your cat likes to hang out on the counter they might be enticed by that beautiful bouquet of lilies you bring home, but lilies can cause kidney failure in cats and ingestion is fatal if not treated within 18 hours.

 

(Image Link)

The sap from both the elephant ear and dumb cane plants can be fatal if ingested, and if the sap gets into your cat's eyes while it's prowling around they can get mighty infected.

Learned that one the hard way, and lemme tell ya- it's no fun trying to hold your cat down and give them eye drops!

Those beautiful foxgloves that sprout up all over the place are poisonous to both pets and people, but your pets probably won't notice them until you bring them inside, so leave them in the yard where they belong!

What If Hollywood Rebooted NickToons From The 90s?

The 90s are all the rage with the kids these days, which means those NickToons we all loved when we were young(er) will inevitably be rebooted hard by Big Hollywood someday soon.

Directors like Michael Bay, Quentin Tarantino and Judd Apatow are lining up to take a crack at a NickToon reboot, yeah I said Judd Apatow, who else could possibly direct the dark rom-com update of Hey Arnold!?

Illuminating illustrator Mady G. created these guaranteed to be better than the actual reboot movie posters and I have to admit she has sold me on the idea of a gritty CatDog reboot...

A Map Of The Most Popular Fictional Characters From Every State

You probably already know Marty McFly is from Hill Valley, California and Family Guy's Peter Griffin is from Quahog, Rhode Island, but did you know Rambo is from Bowie, Arizona?

Charlie Brown is from Minnesota because that's where creator Charles Schulz is from, and Chilly Willy is from Alaska because of course he is.

But this map created by Playboy showing The Most Popular Fictional Characters From Every State claims Barbie is from New York.

That's presumably because she made her first appearance at the American International Toy Fair in New York, but the official Barbie site lists her hometown as (fictional) Willows, Wisconsin.

Next you'll be telling me Hannah Montana isn't even from Montana...oh wait, it says here she's originally from Tennessee...

Video From 1980 Proves Some Mormons Live In Constant Fear Of Coffee

Evil comes in all shapes and sizes, from the mighty demons that crawl out of sinkholes and destroy whole towns to that wicked cup of coffee you drink in the morning.

That's right- we're all starting our days with a steaming hot cup of sin, at least according to the Mormon church, and if you think their views on polygamy are a gas get a load of this riveting short film showing how evil is brewing around every corner.

(YouTube Link)

Miss Robinson may have avoided temptation and stayed in the Mormon church's good graces, but what hope do the rest of us have if we can't get going without a cup of pure black evil in the morning?

Thanks a lot Hard-To-Find Mormon Videos, now I regret selling my soul to Folgers!

Photographer Camouflages Painted Models In Psychedelic Space

Body painting is no longer just about enhancing the look of the physical form or expressing a motif- it's about transforming the person sporting the paint into something else entirely.

Illusion has become a big part of the body painting game, and sometimes the optical trickery can be used to terrify as well as amaze.

When photographer Alex Markow heard the Primary Projects building in Miami was slated to be demolished he saw an opportunity to make a big mess and snap some amazing pics at the same time.

Alex brought artist Magnus Sodamin on board to create an immersive, and totally psychedelic, art installation called "infinity split", then he let some body painted models get "lost in infinity split".

Only Six Actors Have Ever Been Nominated Twice For The Same Role

Actors who win an Oscar are either lucky or part of a rigged process, depending on how you view the Academy and the way they've voted in the past, but winning an Oscar more than once sure makes you seem lucky.

And if that's true then actors who are nominated twice for the same role are surely the luckiest of them all.

And while nobody has ever won two Oscars for playing the same character only six actors have ever received more than one Academy Award nomination for playing the same role.

(YouTube Link)

This year Sylvester Stallone was nominated for playing Rocky Balboa in Creedis, becoming the sixth star to join this super exclusive club that includes Paul Newman, Al Pacino, Peter O'Toole, Bing Crosby and Cate Blanchett.

22 Things You See In Nearly Every Roleplaying Game

Most roleplaying games either totally railroad the player, like the Final Fantasy series, or they let the player do what they please in an open world, like the Fallout or Elder Scrolls series.

Though seemingly as different as can be both types of RPGs, and pretty much all video games with roleplaying elements, have some rather comical elements in common.

There's the party member who dies in the storyline despite having been resurrected dozens of times in battle, the armor that turns into a bikini when equipped on a female character, and the sewer full of hidden treasures.

Because every stinky sewer must be full of hidden gems, right?

Buddhist Monk Goes On Tire Slashing Rampage After Killing Insect

Buddhist monks are generally the most peaceful people on the planet, but some monks have given their lives to Buddhism to escape a troubled and violent past.

It can be quite easy for these monks to stray from the path of peace, because all it takes is one little incident to throw them into a downward spiral of physical violence once again.

For 45-year-old Julian Glew the killing of an insect was that "one little incident", but rather than harm people he lashed out by slashing nearly 200 tires on cars around Pocklington, England.

Julian claims he wanted to take out his frustration on society without hurting anyone, trying to keep his freak out as Buddha friendly as possible by wounding cars instead of people.

The incident may also be a result of Julian living in isolation in the woods for the last 20 years, where he's seen lots of bugs but very few cars, so maybe the bug was a close friend?

Photographs Reveal What Actors See When They're On The Stage

Leipzig Opera House

The stage is set up to give an audience the best possible view of a performance, while likewise affording the actors a view of virtually every face in the audience, which must be overwhelming for some when the spotlights come on.

Theater Gütersloh

But there's something beautiful about that window full of waiting faces that must likewise captivate an actor, because many of the theaters photographed by Klaus Frahm are quite nice to look at whether you're the actor or the audience.

Magravial Opera House, Bayreuth

Klaus Frahm's images take us beyond the fourth wall in a whole new way, showing us what actors see when they walk out on the stage and grace the public with their performance.

The Man Whose Head Audibly Ticked Like A Clock

Sometimes people get a checkup at the doctor's office and they're told their "heart is like a ticking time bomb", meaning they won't live much longer if they keep taking their health for granted.

But what does it mean when your ears audibly tick twice a second like a metronome?

If you're Sankey Flynn of Greensboro, North Carolina it means you have a strange condition that makes you a living timekeeper:

According to physicians, the noise came from the "spasmodic contraction of muscles in the roof of his mouth. This causes the eustachian tube, leading from the throat to the ears, to open and shut making the peculiar noise."

Here's a newspaper clipping about the "tick-tock man" from the Somerset Daily American, dated February 26th, 1951:

Guy Shares His Little Sister's "Savage" Report Card

Some teens are a real handful, acting out against parents and teachers whenever they feel like it and generally making childless couples happy they don't have any kids to deal with.

These teenage terrors can't seem to stop causing trouble, making the lives of their teachers, and their fellow students, a living hell with their disruptive behavior, which sometimes reads like a cry for help.

A guy named Zain from Birmingham, England took a look at the comments on his sister's 9th grade report card and felt compelled to share it with the interwebs because apparently she's a real devil child!

The whole thing may very well be a fake, or Zain's sister may have severe psychological problems, but either way it's entertaining because it reads like Dennis the Menace's a report card straight from Sweet Valley High.

*sigh* I remember my first "arm lock" incident...

Can You Guess What Names These Baristas Are Trying To Spell?

Writing a name coherently on the side of a cup is definitely not a prerequisite skill for baristas, which is why I always tell them my name is Frank, because it's hard to muck that one up.

But some baristas have a real knack for turning a perfectly ordinary and easy to read name into a illegible jumble of letters or a bizarre new word nobody has ever heard of.

If you think you've got the code breaking skills to figure out barista handwriting then you should take the Can You Guess What Names These Baristas Were Trying To Spell? quiz here.

Some of them are really hard to figure out, but they'll all make you wonder what those coffee fumes are doing to their minds!

How To Convert A Skateboard Into A Powerful Slingshot

Skateboards make really good weapons, because you can slash with a curb sharpened edge, swing the board like a bat or leave a dent in a forehead with cast metal trucks.

But Joerg Sprave of The Slingshot Channel didn't do much skating when he was younger, because he was too busy cutting stuff up and turning it into weapons in his workshop.

(YouTube Link)

In this episode Joerg cuts up a skateboard to create a mighty powerful, pulley based slingshot that can shoot a 60mm lead ball straight through particle board, thereby making it the ultimate way to carck heads open with a skateboard.

Derek Zoolander By Annie Leibovitz

Ben Stiller created Derek Zoolander because he knew he was too good looking for Hollywood but didn't want to come off as a total d-bag by declaring himself gorgeous so he let Derek do the declaring for him.

Now we all know how striking Stiller looks when he's channeling Zoolander, and yet Ben hasn't spent nearly enough time in front of the camera to justify his top model status, so he called a devoted fan in to take his picture.

This rabid Zoolander fan is named Annie Leibovitz, maybe you've heard of her?

She's supposedly pretty famous in her own right, but her star power couldn't outshine Derek's as he began to strike striking poses and put his prettiest face forward.

Annie's photos of the fabulous Zoolander will be featured in the February 2016 issue of American Vogue, make sure you pick up a copy before the wicked Mugatu buys them all for his bonfire!

The Greens Prepare Strange Recipes From The 50s

You've probably heard about strange recipes from the 40s and 50s, dishes like lime cheese salad, lobster relish or ham and banana hollandaise that seem too repulsive to eat.

Well, not all retro recipes are repulsive, nor do they all call for Jell-O gelatin, because as Hank and Katherine Green from the vlogbrothers YouTube channel discovered some are just plain bland!

(YouTube Link)

Thankfully Hank and Katherine are adventurous eaters willing to make, and taste test, some of the strange recipes found in a neat old newspaper clipping cookbook Katherine inherited from her grandmother.

Actors Who Received Oscar Nods For Less Than 20 Minutes Of Screen Time

Some stars can't get an Oscar nod to save their life, and no matter how many blockbuster movies they star in, or how brightly they shine in the hearts of their fans, the Academy Award eludes them.

And then there are actors like Anthony Hopkins, Ingrid Bergman and Judi Dench who don't need to be on screen for long to steal the show from their fellow stars, receiving Oscar nominations for less than 20 minutes of screen time.

Anthony Hopkins appeared in Silence Of The Lambs for less than 16 minutes and yet he took home a Best Actor Oscar for his portrayal of Hannibal.

(YouTube Link)

Ingrid Bergman won an Oscar for her performance in Murder On The Orient Express, a film in which she played a pivotal role despite only being on camera for just over fourteen minutes.

But the award for briefest appearance goes to Judi Dench, who won an Oscar for her portrayal of Queen Elizabeth in Shakespeare In Love, which amounted to a whopping 8 minutes of screen time.

Here she is in 1999 accepting the award, which was presented by Robin Williams:

Snoop Dogg Narrates Planet Earth

Snoop Dogg is not so much a tree hugger as he is a guy who smokes trees, but that doesn't mean he's isn't a friend to his fellow animals.

As his name implies Mr. Dogg is a huge fan of animals, and his encyclopedic knowledge of all creatures great and small landed him the animal lover gig of a lifetime- narrator for the nature documentary series Planet Earth.

(YouTube Link)

BBC's Planet Earth series is normally narrated by David Attenborough, but people thought his narration left the series lacking any sort of street cred, so they brought in the Dee Oh Double Gee to make us howl with laughter!

Guy Falling For 9 Seconds While Trying To Shovel Snow: The Remixes

Slipping and sliding while shoveling snow is something many people can relate to right about now, and something that will become even more relatable in the coming months.

But the person falling down doesn't generally see the trip as a laughing matter, so they have to laugh at the guy doing the snow shovel dance in this video instead.

(YouTube Link)

His slick snow shoveling moves are so hot they melt the ice, so video remixers took him to all sorts of stellar places, including an intense battle with that shufflin' Sith Darth Maul.

Amazing Video Of Jim The Pit Bull Doing Barkour

What we humans refer to as parkour, animals see simply as a convenient way to get around town fast, and yet some animals have clearly been around town a bit more than others.

Fifteen Images That Illustrate Why Letter-Spacing Is So Important

Graphic designers know how important letter-spacing (tracking) is to a design that features lots of typography, like those created for store signs or billboards, and yet some designers still manage to fall short.

They haven't learned to leave enough space between letters so the words they're writing can be clearly understood, a rookie mistake that may cause a budding graphic designer to lose clients.

But you don't have to be in the graphic design biz to find this tip helpful- make sure you leave enough space between letters or you may end up making an anal of yourself!

Surreal Short Film Imagines What Paris Would Look Like As Deserted Movie Set

There has been a dark cloud hanging over the city of Paris since the attacks of November, 2015, but the city of Light has proven time and again that nobody can put out its fire.

However, many people who visit Paris only see the epic sights, such as the Eiffel Tower or the Arc De Triomphe , and to them Paris could be seen as a massive theme park or movie set.

(Vimeo Link)

Apparences was created by French filmmaking duo Claire & Max as a visual examination of these thoughts:

What if everything around us was false? And if our environment was ultimately a single movie set? Would we really be real in this setting? “. Many issues that fuel both an imaginary but also pose those appearances and appearance. We therefore offer 4 minutes immersion in a Paris where the facades have been reworked in order to better immerse themselves in this world so strange.

Man Hides Marriage Proposal In Every Photo Taken With Girlfriend For Months

People are pressured into coming up with bigger, bolder and more sensational marriage proposals these days due to the massive influence the internet has on our lives.

But proposer Ray Smith from Grimsby, England didn't just want to come up with an over-the-top way to propose to his girlfriend Claire- he wanted to toy with his future wife as well.

So Ray started snapping lots of pics of their time together, hiding a "will you marry me?" sign in each and every photo taken for five months, 148 photos in all, without his girlfriend ever noticing.

Ray finally popped the question on Christmas morning, using the photo montage video he'd been slyly creating for the last five months as his version of an epic proposal.

The Time Quentin Tarantino Directed An Episode Of ER

Now that Quentin Tarantino is considered part of the Hollywood elite it's hard to imagine him using his movie directing skills to create content for television.

But surprisingly Tarantino directed an episode of ER in 1995, two months after winning the Best Screenplay Oscar for Pulp Fiction, episode 24 of season one entitled "Motherhood".

(YouTube Link)

Quentin was brought into the Emergency Room by George Clooney, who was set to star in the Tarantino/Rodriguez film From Dusk Til Dawn, and a particularly violent script by Lydia Woodward was chosen to keep the episode nice and Tarantino-y.

(YouTube Link)

Tarantino was paid $30,000 for the episode, and he was hoping to come back as a recurring episode, but alas Quentin would steer clear of television for ten years until returning in 2005 to direct an episode of CSI.

I didn't really see anything but a photo of a bald guy nuzzling an infant child, but many people online are claiming they don't see a bald guy at all- they see a hairy butt hanging above the baby's head.

This optical illusion is caused by a combination of heavy body hair, baldness and the father's posture, and Internetters from all over the world have shared, and shared a laugh about, this funny optical illusion photo.

Woman Leaves Hilarious Yelp Reviews About Past Dates

Yelp has become a great way to discover a new venue without going there and getting disappointed first, and people love to add their own colorful details so their reviews really stand out.

But if you've read one bad burrito review or panning of a theme restaurant you've read them all, and for many the romance has gone out of the reviewing process on Yelp.

So what is a hopeless romantic to do when they need to find a good place to take a date based on someone's past dating experience at that venue?

They should look to the reviews left by Natalie Walker and see what her dates were like at these locations.

Miss Walker's reviews don't help people find a fine meal or score tickets to the perfect spot for sweethearts, but they definitely paint a colorful picture of Natalie's past!
