Fantastically Freaky Comic Strips By Joan Cornellà

You don't have to be daft, dorky or deranged to draw comic strips, but it certainly doesn't hurt.

And those artists who are able to channel their particular brand of madness into their medium often become known for their fantastically freaky view of the world.

Spanish cartoonist Joan Cornellà has no problem letting his freak flag fly in his twisted (and often NSFW) comic strips, and looking at the world through Joan's eyes means finding magic in every nook and cranny.

Joan Cornellà's comics have earned him a place in the hearts of people who like to stare at funny stuff then laugh about it later when they see a shape or shadow that reminds them of his offbeat strips!

The Ancient Samurai Personality Test You Can Take By Making A Fist

Most personality tests require the participant to answer all kinds of questions in order to somewhat arbitrarily categorize them according to societal norms.

But these kinds of tests take too long to complete and are never truly tested for consistency, so you should find out what kind of person you are the Kobushi Shindan way- by making a fist.

Kobushi Shindan is a method samurai used to read people's personality types that translates to "fist analysis", defining who you are by how you make a fist.

If your thumb rests on your pointer finger when you make a fist then you're a strong leader who wants to feel needed by others and is fiercely loyal to your loved ones.

If your thumb rests on your middle finger then you're kind and sociable but scared to try new things and have a hard time starting relationships.

And if you tuck your thumb into your fingers when you make a fist then you're a sensitive introvert who hates conflict and therefore excels at having long relationships.

These are just brief snippets of what your fists says about you, but you can read more about Kobushi Shindan here

Strange Video Shows Off The Latest In Feline Firearm Technology

Cats are used as pillows, napkins, backscratchers, lap warmers and free entertainment by their humans, and it's only a matter of time before humans figure out another use for freeloading felines.

But if the cats aren't careful, if they reveal their super secret sonic meow attack and show the humans that their canned food can be used as a grenade, then the cats will be forced into open warfare.

(YouTube Link)

This strange and mysterious video shows what it's like to mew-mew-mew with a feline firearm in the game Special Force II, a weapon that has the cutest reload animation of all time!

This is exactly what first person shooters have been missing all these years...

Blacksmith Creates Crucible Steel Knife From Wrought Iron Wagon Wheel

 photo bylosmdlb0xb4n4xours_zps5dzblm3o.gif

Working away at a forge all day can make a smith feel moody, as they sweat every last ounce of hope out of their body while hammering away on a piece of metal which doesn't care about your pain.

This is the reality blacksmith Niels Provos is faced with every day, which is why he approached the prospect of forging a knife out of wrought iron wagon wheels with such "enthusiasm".

(YouTube Link)

Niels should record his own series of relaxation tapes, because I found his fairly monotone drone to be quite soothing and a heck of a lot better than twenty minutes of hammer head hitting steel!

The Real Meaning Behind Popular IKEA Product Names

The names IKEA uses for their products may seem strange, and the direct translations may be a bit off at times, but most IKEA names are perfectly appropriate for the product.

Take the BILLY bookcase and ELLY kitchen tea towels for example- the designs are supposed to be youthful and whimsical, so they were given popular names for kids.

The DUKTIG line translates to “capable”, which is how kids feel when they play with the tiny kitchen set, and this colorful plastic dinnerware below is appropriately named KALAS, the Swedish word for “party”.

Helpful Video Demonstrates How To Unclog A Bathroom Sink

It can be a real pain to live in a house with pipes that are constantly clogging up, and unless you know your way around the underside of a sink those clogs mean paying more money and calling a plumber.

But there are lots of helpful tutorials and DIY videos online that can help you avoid having to call in help, like this visual demonstration of how to unclog a bathroom sink from This Old House.

(YouTube Link)

The use of a clear pipe in the demonstration is a nice touch, and hopefully the pipes at our house won't clog up anytime soon but when they do I'll certainly give this a try!

Artist Adds Cartoon Monsters To Images Of Everyday Life

Your world may already be full of colorful characters and terrifying monsters, and depending on where you live these critters may make great subjects for photos, if they'll stand still long enough to take a pic.

But if your town/village/city is relatively critter free congratulations on living in a good place! And enjoy these images by animator Jasper StAubyn West that show what living in a literal world full of monsters would look like.

Jasper created these monsterrific images as part of a “doodle a day” project for the month of March, and here's hoping he brings them back soon because they totally rock!

Polaroids From Original "Rocky Horror" Set Found On Subway Platform

The Rocky Horror Picture Show is one of the most beloved musicals of all time, especially to those who like shows with a little more bite, but when the iconic movie came out in 1975 it was overlooked by critics.

However, everyone who worked on the production knew it was pure magic, and all the fun taking place on the set and behind the scenes was captured on a series of now historic Polaroid photos.

 

These precious Polaroids (original photographer unknown) were used in The Rocky Horror Scrapbook then later purchased from a private collection by Larry Viezel.

Trouble is, a few of them fell out of Larry's bag at a New York City subway platform back in 2011, and could have been lost forever if a guy named Brady Marter hadn't shared them on Collectors Weekly:

Founds these on the platform of the C train in TriBeCa in 2011. They are photos of Tim Curry and the cast of Rocky Horror during the making of the film. Some have writing on the back and Frankenfurter kissed the back of one.

Larry commented on Brady's post and was able to convince him to return all but one of the Polaroids, a small price to pay to make this irreplaceable collection whole again.

As Seen On TV Products That Are Surprisingly Awesome

Terrible As Seen On TV product lists have been done to death, but where's the love for the worthwhile products that just happen to be marketed and sold with a little help from television advertising?

The Last Time Superman Died

Superman is slated to die once again, and even though he probably won't stay dead for long there's always a part of us that wonders "what if this really is the last time he dies?"

The last time Superman died, which was back in 1993 when he died battling the Kryptonian super villain Doomsday, readers believed he might be dead for good.

Their fears were reinforced by a special issue of Newstime which was released in May of 1993 as a fun way to make readers feel like part of the story as they read a magazine from Metropolis.

The magazine, which features a full article on Superman's final battle, funny letters to the editor and reviews of upcoming fictional movies, made real the idea of a world without Superman.

It also gave those new comic readers brought on board by the death storyline hype a fun introduction to the DC Universe at a point when many supermen tried but failed to replace one Man of Steel.

35 Frightening Nopes From Australia, The Land Of Nope

(Image Link)

All of the things that make our skin crawl with terror, make us want to look away or jump out of the nearest window and run away in fear have been conveniently categorized online as “nopes”.

Nopes come in all shapes, sizes, and degrees of creepiness, from the beginner nopes found in trash piles to the hordes of nope lurking under the sea.

(Image Link)

Australia has more than its fair share of shiver inducing nopes, so many, in fact, that they seem to be spilling out of every nook, cranny and light fixture.

(Image Link)

So if you can't stand the sight of squirmy and extremely poisonous critters dining on equally dangerous creatures like it's no big deal then you may want to visit anywhere else but Australia...

The Real Reason 10 TV Show Characters Were Killed Off

Shows like Walking Dead, Breaking Bad and Game Of Thrones love to kill off characters, but when a supporting character is killed on a sitcom like Seinfeld or The Big Bang Theory people start to wonder why.

George's fiancee Susan was killed off because actress Heidi Swedberg lacked the comedy chops to keep up with the Seinfeld cast, so she didn't make the cut.

But sadly Howard Wolowitz's mom on The Big Bang Theory, who was never actually seen on camera, was killed off because actress Carol Ann Susi died of cancer.

Carol had previously appeared on Seinfeld as the unemployment office worker's daughter, Carrie, with whom George went out on a few dates to avoid losing his benefits.

(YouTube Link)

This video by Looper reveals the real reason 10 different characters were written off popular TV shows, including the tragic tale of Tuco Salamanca the tired, and you can read a few more entries they left out of the video here.

Elementary School Teacher Wins Twerking Contest, Loses Job

Apparently some people still love to twerk, and those butt shakin' fools are willing to risk wetting themselves in public, spinal injury or worse to shake what their maker gave them to a funky bass beat.

But elementary school teacher “Miss Clarissa” clearly didn't have a clue that her love of the twerk would cost her a job she loved even more.

“Miss Clarissa” was fired when this video of her competing in and winning a twerking contest in Cabo San Lucas during Spring Break was shared online. 

(YouTube Link)

She was forced out of her job by school administrators who found her off campus behavior unacceptable:

"They didn't give me any other option at my school than to resign," she told the publication. "I felt I was being attacked and put under pressure. I didn't know what else to do apart from leave as quickly as I could."

This is just further proof we live in an oversensitive world that places too much importance on social media posts, and if teachers aren't allowed to blow off steam in their private time it's the students who will suffer.

This Is Why You Should Let Sleeping Tigers Sleep

Tigers are like all cats in that they need to squeeze in eighteen plus hours a day of beauty sleep, and they really don't like to be disturbed while they're catching some z's.

But unlike most other cats a tiger will launch a furious attack at anyone who dares disturb their sleep, even if that attack leads to an awkward tension between bros in a shared enclosure.

(YouTube Link)

Is that the tiger from The Hangover? Looks like Mike Tyson has taught him some moves!

Portraits Of People After They've Had A Glass Or Three Of Wine

Have you ever looked at yourself in the mirror when you're buzzed or totally blotto and thought “gee, my face looks kinda funny right now!”

You may have dismissed this change in appearance as merely the product of inebriation, but this photo series by Marcos Alberti shows us that drinking actually makes our faces more fun.

That's because the alcohol in our favorite alcoholic beverages (in this case wine) takes away our inhibitions and allows us to stretch our faces into super silly expressions, thereby eliciting laughs.

It's all really scientific and related to chemistry and biology and endorphins and such, but this is all you really need to take away from Marcos Alberti's photo series- three glasses of wine is enough to loosen anyone up!

These Costume Redesigns For Batman And Wonder Woman Are Super

The iconic pantheon of superheroes who form the Holy Trinity of the DC Universe suffer from an identity issue they've never been able to outgrow- their equally iconic costumes.

If Batman doesn't have his cape or pointy-eared cowl, if Supes doesn't have a cape or an S on his chest, and if Wonder Woman is caught without either her bracers, tiara or lasso these heroes somehow lose their power.

Artists have tried to come up with new outfits to make them look more like normal folks, but they're not normal- they're super, so any wardrobe change should really reflect that.

That's why two of the three redesigns created by Stephen Byrne work so well- Batman becomes a bit more of an agent or contractor but still retains his batty spirit and still looks intimidating.

And Wonder Woman looks like an urban adventurer ready for action, still regal, still a warrior but less of a princess.

Supes in jeans and a t-shirt, on the other hand, just doesn't do it for me.

Italian Grocery Store Introduces Dog Friendly Shopping Carts

(Image Link)

It's a bummer dogs can't go grocery shopping with us because they'd be great at picking out snacks, although they'd probably force us to buy a cartload of both real and squeaky steaks so maybe we're better off.

But if and/or when grocery stores allow dogs to come along they'll ride comfortably in a cool dog friendly shopping cart, like this one introduced by Gianfranco Galantini in his grocery store Unes.

 

Now Gianfranco should consider dedicating one entire aisle to Snausages and other dog treats, so his new fleet of furry shoppers can spend their human's hard earned cash.

Ten Unexpected Duties Performed By Secret Service Agents

Until recently many people assumed the Secret Service did nothing more than guard the President and his family while wearing a stony expression and talking into their sleeve.

But then we discovered how much Secret Service agents like to get drunk and carouse with prostitutes, which led us to wonder "why do they have so much steam to blow off?"

(Image Link)

Secret Service agents have to do pretty much anything the Prez tells them to do, like carry all of Jimmy Carter's luggage or shield Lyndon B. Johnson while he pees outside (and on the guy's leg), so that's a start.

When mistresses and wives needed to be kept separate the Secret Service goes to work, and when George W. Bush's underage daughters wanted to go out drinking agents are there to keep them out of jail.

Unable to relax, much less party, because you're too busy protecting the POTUS family while they get their ya-ya's out? Now that's a valid excuse for passing out in a hotel hallway in Holland or getting crazy in Cartagena!

North Korea Channels The Voice Of Abraham Lincoln In Letter To Obama

When Supreme Leader Kim-Jong Un orders the North Korean state media to send President Obama a message we expect blustering, bluffing, and lots of nuclear weapon-related threats.

But apparently the state media has mastered the practice of mediumship, channeling the voice of dead president Abraham Lincoln in a strange letter published on DPRK Today website entitled "Advice From Lincoln To Obama".

The message begins “Hey, Obama, I know you have a lot on your mind these days … I’ve decided to give you a little advice after seeing you lost in thought before my portrait during a recent Easter Prayer Breakfast.” 

(Image Link)

Their (Abe's?) "advice" is related to Obama's efforts to rid the world of nuclear weapons, stating that it's "a mockery to the entire world" for the U.S. to keep their arsenal and make other countries get rid of theirs. 

"Abe" goes on to praise Obama while criticizing "himself":

“Hey, Obama, it’s the 21st Century,” the letter says. “The tactic by past American presidents, including me, who deceived the people … is outdated. That doesn’t work now. The world doesn’t trust an America that doesn’t take responsibility for what it says.”

This unsolicited advice comes a few years after the state media called Obama a "monkey" and Senator John Kerry a "wolf with a hideous lantern jaw", so something tells me the Ghost of Abe Lincoln had nothing to do with this letter...

The World's Finest Superheroes Meet For The First Time In This Fan Film

The film Batman V Superman is supposed to be a sequel to the 2012 film Man Of Steel, but many fans believe BvS has too much Batfleck in it to qualify as a proper sequel.

They want to see a fresh faced Batman in the film, meeting Supes at the onset of their superhero careers and trying to assess whether the alien is a threat to humanity.

(YouTube Link)

So the superfolks at YMMPodcasts took it upon themselves to create World's Finest, a Man of Steel conceptual short made for fans by fans.

Think Your Cat Is Lazy? Look At All The Jobs They Do For You!

The feline pet population has it way too easy- they're asked to do nothing more than catch mice, eat on the floor, poop in a box and allow humans to dote on them, which is why all the working dogs are so jealous.

But this video by Sho Ko seems to indicate that our cats are actually overworked, and with all they do in a day it's a wonder they have time to squeeze in sixteen hours of sleep!

George R. R. Martin Discusses The Real History Behind Game Of Thrones

Game of Thrones, and the book series that inspired the show A Song Of Ice And Fire, clearly take place in a fictional world of fantasy, since there are White Walkers, giants, fire breathing dragons and such.

However, the political conflict that serves as the heart of the main storyline is inspired by real history.

(YouTube Link)

We know The Wars Of The Roses, which took place in England during the 15th century. sits at the top of the list of influences, but who, what and when else inspired Martin's epic series?

Let George R. R. Martin himself, along with an assortment of well read historians, recount the many ways history has inspired the series that so seamlessly blends fantasy and reality.

Ten Unconventional Coming-Of-Age Movies You Should Check Out

Coming-of-age movies are supposed to have relatable characters that make us compare what they're going through in the film to our own lives, but that rarely happens when you're a weirdo.

Growing up as one of the odd ducks in the pond made me relate more to movies like Harold and Maude, Time Bandits and Quadrophenia than the traditional Hollywood fare, so Submarine by Ben Stiller and Richard Ayoade was right up my alley.

(YouTube Link)

Stand By Me is a classic coming-of-age movie and should definitely stay in the rotation for life, but back in 2012 Wes Anderson gave us a new addition that appeals to the offbeat- Moonrise Kingdom.

(YouTube Link)

And lastly, if you're looking for comedy, poignancy and a slice of blue collar life set in North London then you've gotta check out Mike Leigh's fantastic funky family film from 1991 called Life Is Sweet.

How To Care For A Sad Person

Depression level sadness makes people feel small and critter-like, as they wallow in a sea of dark thoughts and dour moods with warm blanket to crawl under and music that matches thier mood.

But this is obviously not a good way to handle a visit from the Boohoo Blues, so those who have learned to live and love the depressed find ways to lighten their mood that don't involve hugging.

Those who want to help the depressed, and anyone looking for a cure to sadness, should check out this comic by YMB/Yasmin F and see how ten easy steps can make even the most gloomy person crack a smile!

Where Did The Expression "Elvis Has Left The Building" Originate?

(Image Link)

The expression “Elvis has left the building” has been used as a comedic and colloquial way to say “the show's over”, “get out while the gettin's good”, “you don't have to go home but you can't stay here”, etc.

Our aunts and uncles say it, our grandparents said it before it was cool, and little kids say it even though they don't have a clue who Elvis Presley is, but where did this fun expression come from?

(YouTube Link)

Simon Whistler of Today I Found Out explores the origin of this saying that's more popular than Presley in this fun factoid video, getting to the bottom of this mystery with a little help from our friend Eddie Deezen.

The Most Brutal Fights Between Superfolks

Superheroes and supervillains fight because that's what they were drawn to do, but when two heroes go at it there's usually some underlying reason involving truth, justice and the goody two-shoes way.

The superhero flick Batman V Superman has brought up the sore subject of superhero-on-superhero violence, which will continue when Cap and Iron Man go head-to-head in Captain America: Civil War.

But believe it or not both Batman and Superman have been involved in far more brutal fights, with Bane and Doomsday respectively, which makes sense since heroes show restraint when fighting their fellow do-gooders.

Bane broke Batman's spine in the Knightfall story arc, which led to a lengthy recovery and Azrael taking over for Bruce as the Batman Family rallied behind their fallen leader.

Superman was "killed" by the mighty alien Doomsday in The Death Of Superman story arc, which kept Supes out of his spandex supersuit for three long years and led to a reboot of the beloved character.

Can The Powder inside An Etch-A-Sketch Be Used To Make Thermite?

We all know the Etch-A-Sketch as a toy we got as a kid and thought was pretty cool for a few days before it ended up at the bottom of the toybox.

But I bet kids would see the Etch-A-Sketch as a whole lot cooler if they thought they could make a fiery pyrotechnic composition called Thermite out of the sketchy powder.

This rumor has been circulating around the internet for years, so “The King Of Random” Grant Thompson teamed up with Dan and Lincoln from What's Inside? to test the theory.
