A Huge Gallery Celebrating The Magic Of Perfect Penmanship

(Image Link)

Penmanship is a dying artform, as fonts installed in our computers easily fake fine handwriting, but there are still lots of writers out there who choose to take up a brush, marker or pen and create beautiful letters.

But computers also help keep the love of hand lettering alive, because we're able to share our passion for the written word with people who appreciate how hard it is to render fancy looking letters by hand.

Reddit is home to the handwritten subreddit penmanshipporn, where scribblers go to show off their skills and revel in the glory of handsome handwriting!

Kat Dennings Is The Queen Of Hilarious Tweets

Kat Dennings is one of my favorite famous people, and not just because she's drop dead gorgeous and wickedly funny.

Okay, so one of those two things does influence my opinion of her quite a bit- the funny.

Kat has a unique sense of humor which she loves to share with the world via her Twitter and Instagram accounts, and if you think a star can't achieve her level of fame and still remain humble read one of her silly tweets.

There's no way the Kim K.s and Gwyneths of the world would ever let themselves be as free as Miss Dennings with their social media posts, mostly because they have people posting for them.

Kat Dennings, on the other hand, does alll the quipping and the posting for herself, so reading her tweets is like peeking through her window and watching a famous person totally winning at life.

Owners Watch Their House Burn To The Ground On Their iPhone

People install a home security camera system to make themselves feel safer, and nowadays these systems are viewable from a tablet or smartphone, so you can watch your house at all times.

But this power to visually lord over your home kingdom can be a curse too, because the same cameras that film burglars in the act stare blankly as your house burns down around them.

The home featured in this video shared by Storyful News fell victim to the Fort McMurray wildfire, and the owners were able to watch the whole fiery scene unfold on their iPhone, that is, until the smoke blocked the view...Ain't modern technology grand?

Alanis Morissette Updates Her Hit Song "Isn't It Ironic?" For The Digital Age

Isn't it ironic that Alanis Morissette's hit song "Isn't It Ironic?" isn't actually about irony at all, but rather coincidence or happenstance? I guess "Isn't It Happenstance?" didn't have the same ring to it.

Twenty years ago "Isn't It Ironic?" made Miss Morissette a household name, and nowadays she has a pretty good sense of humor about the silly pop song that earned her millions of fans.

But a lot has happened in the last twenty years, so when Alanis needed lyrics for an updated version of her song she turned to James Corden for help encapsulating the ironies of the modern age.

The True Origin Of Cthulhu

Most fans believe H.P. Lovecraft drew inspiration for the Cthulhu mythos from a variety of sources- Science fiction and mythological beings as the physical inspiration for the creatures, cosmic indifferentism and nihilism as the philosophical influence behind the stories, and horror the plot vehicle that drives the terror home.

Whelp, looks like we were wrong! Thanks for setting us straight Ethan Vincent of Oppressive Silence!

CEO Snoozes At The Office, Employees Work Overtime Photoshopping Him

Folks, you've gotta learn from the mistakes of others in this internet heavy age, and one of the lessons we've learned is don't fall asleep at work or your fellow employees will Photoshop you.

Now it seems like this rule shouldn't apply to the company CEO, because employees who mess with the boss will soon find themselves without a job or a reference.

But it appears some CEOs are actually cool enough to handle some digital degredation, as long as the employees use the company's own app to mess with their image.

Zeev Farbman, CEO of software company Lightricks, was in his office catching a few z's between meetings when someone snapped a pic of him snoozing.

Seeing the opportunity to "test" their image manipulation app Enlight and poke fun at the boss at the same time, the employees set about "Enlightening" the pic in glorious ways.

Next thing you know Zeev was posing for portrait artists, dancing with the Bolshoi and starting a new life as an overpriced Shake Weight. How cool is that?!

Spectacular Retro Pin-Up Style Artwork By Valery Barykin

Russian artists seem to be coming out of the woodwork online lately, but the difference between the Russian art boom and others is most of the stuff they're posting online is really good.

Whether digital, traditional or experimental, the new wave of Russian artists love to pay homage to their sources of inspiration while pushing their chosen medium forward.

If you're a fan of classic pin-up art, retro advertising or old school Rockwell style realism you'll adore the cool and colorful artwork that springs from the mind of Valery Barykin.

Valery's wonderful illustrations are a bit naughty at times but never too risqué, manage to contain modern devices and such without losing their classic appeal, and the colors and contours are always easy on the eyes.

Timothy Olyphant's Masterclass On Stage Vs. Screen Acting

To say an actor is an actor no matter which stage they're on is discounting the different set of skills needed to act on a stage rather than on a set.

Stage actors must emote, project their voices and move about the space so the audience can see what they're supposed to on stage, and they don't have a hundred takes to get it right.

Get the difference? If not, consult this clip from Conan where screen actor/master thespian Timothy Olyphant demonstrates the different in a most peculiar way. (Barely NSFW due to language)

I'll never think of the phrase "pan out" the same way ever again!

Guy Straps Himself Into Falling Helicopter To Prove Neil deGrasse Tyson Wrong

People who question or disagree with a scientific theory often have a hard time proving the theory is wrong, and if they want their proof to resonate with the internet community they must put the proof on video.

So when Destin Sandlin, host of SmarterEveryDay, took issue with a Tweet sent by Neil deGrasse Tyson claiming “A helicopter whose engine fails is a brick” he knew he'd actually have to ride in a falling 'copter to debunk the theory.

Strapping yourself into a falling helicopter to prove it can be landed safely using physics is both sheer lunacy and the most thrilling scientific theory debunking ever caught on video.

Model And Competitive Eater Devours 50 Krispy Kreme Donuts

Krispy Kreme donuts are good and all, but eating more than a half dozen in a sitting seems like it would send your system into sugar shock.

Heck, eating half a dozen makes me feel like a total pig, and a dozen would probably put me in a sucrose-related coma, so devouring 50 donuts seems like a one-way ticket to the afterlife.

But model and competitive eater Nela Zisser stared donut-induced death in the face and did the seemingly impossible, devouring 50 Krispy Kreme glazed donuts all while maintaining her modelesque figure.

I can't imagine how someone can scarf down 9,500 calories worth of sugary fried food and still maintain this figure:

Michael MacRae Tells Dark And Fantastic Tales With His Artwork

Artists who choose to infuse their works with genre specific imagery tend to get stuck in one style of art, such as horror or science fiction, but painter Michael MacRae is different.

His mind is full of stories that he prefers to tell with his paintings, and those stories, while often dark and full of fantastic imagery, can't be constrained to a particular genre.

Michael's paintings invite us to stay a while and figure out what's going on in each scene, and as we invent answers we write our own version of Michael's dark fantasy tales in our minds.

All The Cards You'll Encounter At A Baseball Game

When you head to a baseball game this summer and fall you're going to see all kinds of peanuts and cracker jacks in the stands who'll make you feel like you've unwittingly joined the cast of the Major League reboot.

Illustrator Kevin Valente has done a great job of capturing the spirit of baseball season by giving us the vital stats on all the fans we'll have to contend with in the stands, like these for old man I Remember When:

Times per inning he calls the umpire a “bum”: 7
Fond memories per game: 14

Chris Evans Is Caught Staring At Boobs, Gets Heroically Photoshopped

Chris Evans has proven he's a good guy by giving to charity, making himself to available to fans at conventions and on social media, and making videos for sick fans to show his support.

But Chris is also a warm blooded male, and his love of the ladies is no secret, so when he is presented with a chance to peek at cleavage he takes it.

Only Chris's peek was a full blown stare captured in a photo that made it online, where it was instantly subject to digital modification by the Photoshop gods, who deemed his stare hilarious.

He tried to justify his stare by claiming he saw a chestburster about to emerge and kill them all.

But his fellow Marvel movie stars weren't buying his story, and they weren't too happy about his lascivious conduct either.

And then Travolta came along and made the whole situation even more awkward, which just happens to be the superpower he was granted by the Church of Scientology.

80-Year-Old Asks Granddaughter For Makeover, Becomes Internet Sensation

People who are proud of their age and choose to look natural rather than dyeing, painting or otherwise concealing the true story their naturally aged head tells the world deserve our respect.

But it's natural for women who grew up wearing makeup every day to miss getting all dolled up when they stop painting their faces, like when they go off to live in a nursing home.

That's when they call in the Cover Girl calvary to give them a makeover and help them feel young again, and lucky for 80-year-old grandma Livia her granddaughter Tea Flego is a talented makeup artist.

Tea came to her grandma's rescue and used contouring makeup techniques to make Livia look years younger, and while she expected to make her grandma feel better about herself she didn't expect to make her internet famous.

Soon after Tea posted the makeover pics online Glam-Ma became a viral sensation, her pic shared by millions who love to see a senior feeling young and frisky again.

22 Clever Ways To Repurpose Old Junk

People are way more into recycling these days and will reuse easy stuff like plastic bags and coffee cans to “go green”, but repurposing old junk is a bit harder and may require a bit of inspiration and instruction.

Well, consider this article by Popular Mechanics a great jumping off point for ways to put that old junk lying around your house to work for you.

Have an old tire rim taking up space in your garage? Surround it with some bricks or stones and you've got a handsome and durable tire rim fire pit that will last a lot longer than many store bought fire pits.

Sitting on a bunch of pipe fittings from your last major plumbing repair? Clean them up, add some color and turn those leftover plumbing bits into a custom made Steampunk inspired chess set, which makes a great gift and conversation piece.

Don't know what to do with those old cheese graters after they've started to rust? Make some fun and funky cheese grater pendant lights that look great hanging in a kitchen or dining area.

Eye-Pleasing 3D Animated Visualization Of A Kung Fu Master's Fluid Movements

Some martial arts are all about striking power, defending against attacks and other similarly martial matters, but Kung Fu has always been about both fighting ability and grace.

The basic patterns learned by practitioners of kung fu teach fluid motion, strong yet graceful movement and body positioning for striking and defending, all while looking like a deadly cool dance.

German artist Tobias Gremmler has brought the concept of fluid motion to life with a little help from 3D animation software, revealing the invisible ripples a kung fu master creates in the air during their routine.

Celebrity Pranks That Ended In Disaster

George Clooney is famous among the famous for his pranks, and cardboard cutout of a human Ashton Kutcher is such a prankster he had his own prank show called Punk'd, but Clooney's pranks don't end in physical assault.

Punk'd, on the other hand, featured a segment where Donald Faison pranked his Scrubs co-star Zach Braff by making him believe his brand new Porsche had been tagged on by a group of teen ne'er-do-wells.

Donald clearly wasn't aware of Zach's anger issues, nor could he have known Zach would chase down and beat the crap out of a 12-year-old, which they was edited out of the episode because "you're not supposed to punch people on Punk'd".

And speaking of pranks pushing an actor to their limit- Leonardo DiCaprio seems to think beating the crap out of his fellow actors is a funny prank, but Wolf Of Wall Street co-star Jonah Hill isn't a fan of the rough stuff, so he decided to teach Leo a lesson.

Jonah's improv skills gave him the perfect opportunity to prank while filming a scene where he and Leo are eating sushi- the script called for Jonah to eat the last piece but he thought fast and had Leo eat it instead.

The scene was reshot about 70 more times to get the version we saw in the film, which meant Leo had to eat 70 pieces of sushi in one day, leaving him with one hell of a gut ache much to Hill's (and Scorsese's) delight.

A 61-Year-Old Mom Takes Magic Mushrooms For The First Time

Taking psychedelic drugs was an integral part of Hippie life back in the 60s and 70s, but not everyone who lived through that experimental era took drugs and tripped out.

Some self described “close minded” people didn't dare mess with their minds by taking drugs when they were younger, but as they grow older they start to wonder what they were missing.

So when a clinical yet caring son found out his 61-year-old mom was open to eating Psilocybin 'shrooms he decided to give her a safe (1 gram) dose and record the experience on video, strictly for the sake of research, of course.

I'm surprised she experienced such strong effects considering how small a dose she took, but at least she had fun with this freaky little experiment!

Dying Car Alarm Lays Down A Funky Beat

Legends And Lore From Ninja History

Ninjas are shady characters full of secrets, and their history is likewise shrouded in mystery to keep outsiders from learning of their ways and ruining all their ninja fun.

But the ninjas we see in pop culture are mutant animals, blonde Americans, and a funny fat guy in Beverly Hills, a far cry from the real shadowy assassins of yore.

Pop culture has been faithful to ninja history in a few ways, namely the fact that there were female ninjas we now call Kunoichi and that ninjas were every bit as honorable as samurai.

The ninja's significance in Japanese history has been overshadowed by the samurai, but if they weren't as important as samurai why did Japanese Lords Hideyoshi Toyotomi and Oda Nobunaga try to kill them all off in the late 16th century?

Ninja warriors were also involved in castle sieges, sometimes using a fun ferris wheel-esque device called a Yagura to quickly launch over the wall and "jump into the fortified position".

But when they preferred a silent but deadly approach ninjas used hooked spears to slip into a castle in the dead of night, as they did in 1562 when Tokugawa Ieyasu hired a team of 80 ninjas to capture Castle Kaminojo and rescue Tokugawa's family.

6 Hit Songs Written By Prince

(Image Link)

The amazing music Prince the recording artist shared with the world will live on forever, and whenever we hear doves cry or see purple rain falling we will think of the mega-talented Prince Rogers Nelson.

Prince played at least 27 different instruments, danced like a funky angel, and gave us his innovative blend of rock and funk so we can boogie our raspberry berets off without shame.

But he was also an incredibly gifted songwriter, who wrote a bunch of hit songs for other artists, including "Nothing Compares 2 U" for Sinead O'Connor.

(Image Link)

Prince didn't like the foul language used by Sinead during press conferences, so the two butted heads and actually had what she described as a "punch up", which somehow seems like a fair match.

Madonna was another fair match for Prince, and shortly after the two dated Prince wrote the song "Love Song" which they recorded together for Like A Prayer in 1988.

(YouTube Link)

And even though Prince didn't get any love when he recorded "I Feel For You" for his first album back in 79 he would later earn a Grammy for the song when Chaka Khan made it a huge hit in 1984.

(YouTube Link)

So even if you didn't like the songs he recorded himself chances are there's a hit song out there with Prince's name on it that you do like.

Police Under Fire For Using Anti-Terrorism Device To Track Sandwich Thief

(Image Via Jenny Yermit)

Police officers take food very seriously, so if you rip off one of their favorite eateries expect to have the full force of the law brought down upon you, even if all you stole were wings and sub sandwiches.

A hungry crook in Annapolis, Maryland stole 15 chicken wings and 3 sub sandwiches (total value $56.77) from a pizza shop employee on a delivery run and the police are now under fire for using a Stingray phone tracker to hunt the thief.

(Image Link)

The Stingray is a small device that acts like a portable cell phone tower, allowing police officers to capture info from nearby mobile devices and therefore tramples all over our right to privacy.

This device is typically only used to track terrorists, and yet the Baltimore police department has used it more than 4,300 times since 2007, which is causing some courtroom controversy in Maryland.

The Annapolis police didn't catch the sandwich thief, so using a Stingray was not only an abuse of their power- it was one of the most expensive operations ever mounted to catch a guy who stole some wings and subs.

Designer Brings Ridiculous Drawings Of Bicycles To Life

There's a huge difference between sketching and design drawing, and the biggest difference between the two is the need for precision.

Design drawings are created so something can be physically built from the illustrations, while sketches are supposed to be kept loose and quick, a reaction rather than a precise rendering.

Designer Gianluca Gimini thought it might be fun to turn a scratchy sketch of a bicycle into a realistic design, and after five years of gestation he was ready to bring this concept to life.

Gianluca asked hundreds of people to sketch a bicycle from memory on a sheet of paper, then he turned their ridiculous designs into 3D renderings of real (but hardly ever functional) bicycles for his series "Velocipedia".

Even though many of them wouldn't function for long before falling apart, it would be interesting to ride them all and see how the little errors in the sketch affect how each bike feels to ride.

Uplifting Comic Story Arcs That Will Restore Your Faith In Metahumanity

Comic books used to tell uplifting stories written to teach a moral lesson, but the anti-hero trend came along in the 1970s and changed the world where superheroes live into a much darker place.

The morals were replaced by vigilante justice and dark vengeance, and the upright heroes from the old school started looking a bit hokey compared to those brooding bad boys and girls.

But morality, justice and hope will always have a place in comic books, and sometimes it's nice to see superstars like Deadpool, Harley Quinn and Spider-Man trading the sarcasm for some serious heartfelt expression.

Deadpool teaches a kid named Evan, who is the mutant god Apocalypse reborn, to be okay with his dark heritage, Harley frees herself from the Joker's grasp once and for all, and Spider-Man says goodbye to a young fan with terminal cancer.

These are the tales that amaze us with their emotional depth and astound us with their impact on our non-fictional lives, the story arcs that are nice to read in-between epic battle scenes.

Dash Cam Footage Shows Kangaroo Attacking Car At Midnight

I have it on good authority that Australia is full of kangaroos, and if you go there to visit you will most likely see a 'roo hopping around at some point during your trip.

This same authority will tell you that kangaroos are feisty critters that shouldn't be approached in the wild because they may attack, and a kick from their hind legs can cause grievous bodily harm.

But what the authority failed to mention is that kangaroos are so feisty they'll take on a car, using their mighty legs to take out a driver- Mad Max style. (Contains NSFW language)

Car Repairs So Bad They're Brilliant

It must be amusing to work as an auto mechanic and watch all those wrecks and “there, I fixed it” jalopies roll in begging to be sent to that great big junkyard in the sky.

Oh the stories those mechanics must tell while sitting around the table at dinner time, tales of duct tape patch jobs and Coke can pipe repairs.

Hopefully when someone rolls in with one of these poorly patched up automobiles those kindly mechanics cut them a deal, because you know someone is broke when they can't even afford a new tire!
