Pics That Prove You're Doing A Good Job At Parenting

It can be hard for parents to tell how their kids are going to turn out, and what kind of person they're going to be, when they're really young.

(Image Link)

But when they do something that shows they truly care, and their actions prove they've been listening to our life lessons all along, they make their parents proud.

(Image Link)

Generous, caring and thoughtful kids serve as a good example to the other children they meet, demonstrating how kids can make a difference in the world if they work at it.

(Image Link)

Of course some, like this 9-year-old who makes small, portable shelters for homeless people, will work a lot harder than others, but don't let your little ones get discouraged.

Because as long as they're thinking about the welfare of others they're on the right track!

SpongeBob Moments Hilariously Captioned With Historical Context

(Image Link)

Never let the haters in the world tell you SpongeBob SquarePants is not of historical importance, because those anti-Spongeicans are just jealous of SpongeBob's contributions to the world.

(Image Link)

Bikini Bottom seems to have a lot in common with the Bermuda Triangle, since both oceanic locations are full of strange occurrences and random encounters.

But the trials and tribulations encountered by SpongeBob and his buddies are like perfect parallels of the historical events we humans encountered on the surface.

(Image Link)

These parallel events must be why the memes shared on r/BikiniBottomTwitter are so spot on, revealing all the ways we've been underestimating SpongeBob and Patrick since the 90s.

Cyberpunk Pin-Up Art By Fernando Vicente

Anatomical cutaways and pin-ups don't sound like two things that would go great together, but a good artist can surprise you by bringing two seemingly disparate visual elements together.

The mechanical pin-up models who star in Fernando Vincente's series Anatomies are disturbingly alluring, and they exude android cool(ant), but they seem like artwork from another time.

Perhaps when we reach a point in history when cyberpunk stories no longer read like speculative fiction, or when our futuristic world matches the visions shared by Space Age artists, Fernando's Anatomies will feel right at home.

Dad Describes What Happens When Roomba Meets Dog Poop

(Image Link)

Automated cleaning devices like the Roomba are great ideas on paper, and people buy them thinking they'll save time and effort, but the actual technology needs improvement.

Just ask Jesse Newton from Little Rock, Arkansas and he'll tell you the Roomba has a major design flaw- it can't sense a dog turd, and doesn't know better than to run right over one.

Jesse found out the hard way, in the middle of the night, and the poopocalypse brought about by his Roomba was so bad he just had to share his story.

He started by drawing us a map:

And then went on to tell the tale in way too much detail, revealing every hilarious moment so we can laugh about it because it didn't happen in our home.

Morgan Freeman Narrates Pedestrians On Hollywood Blvd.

Morgan Freeman is the guy many people would choose to narrate their life story, and his voice can make any person seem distinguished and any situation important, even on Hollywood Blvd.

Jimmy Kimmel introduced Morgan to the wonderful world of pedestrian narration on a previous episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live!, and his magic voice made us want to believe in Perfect Selfie Paul.

Crazy Things TV Shows Did When They Ran Out Of Money

When network bean counters decide a show has gone over budget, or they cut the budget because ratings aren't “high enough”, great shows air crappy episodes that scare viewers away.

The Walking Dead started out strong, and has always had decent ratings, but the budget was slashed so hard for the second season the show's dramatic build-up came to a stand still on Hershel's farm.

Survivors stuck on a farm for an episode or two seemed like a novel idea, but the combination of no budget and the firing of director Frank Darabont meant the survivors were trapped on the farm for far too long.

LOST made a similarly stagnating move by locking main characters in polar bear cages for six episodes in the third season, making viewers wonder whether they'd mistakenly tuned in to Prison Break.

People thought the LOST writers were running out of ideas, but the show was just over-budget and buying time, hoping the spectacular season finale would make viewers forget about those crappy episodes.

But by then the show had lost a ton of viewers they wouldn't get back until the hype surrounding the end of the series made people curious about The Island again.

The Technology Behind Samus Aran's Arm Cannon

If you've ever played one of the games from the Metroid franchise you probably wondered how Samus Aran's arm cannon works considering it covers her entire arm and doesn't need to be reloaded.

Playing through all the games didn't provide any answers to this question, but then I came across this Awkward Zombie comic by Katie Tiedrich and the answer was made clear- Samus' guns power the cannon! What a physique!

(So then...are the missiles her fingers?)

Texas Cowboy Rides His Horse Into Taco Bell

What sort of grub does a cowboy get a hankering for after a hard day of ridin' at the rodeo?

Apparently in Texas cowboys go for Taco Bell, and when 19-year-old Lathan Crump rode up on his horse Hollywood and discovered the drive-thru was closed he decided to ride on in for some tacos to-go.

Lathan knew it was a bit funny to ride his horse into the restaurant, but he never expected to go viral thanks to all the pics shared by people in the restaurant and this video he posted on Instagram.

And it appears this cowboy gets to keep his white hat because Commerce PD says they won't be taking action since nobody reported the incident and the restaurant isn't pressing charges.

Maybe he could do a little rodeo ridin' in the parking lot and drum up some business for the store to make up for his horsin' around?

The Truth About Suicide Squad's Joker

If you haven't seen the Suicide Squad movie yet then you're in for one big surprise- the Joker isn't in the movie as much as you'd think considering he was prominently featured in the ads.

Jared Leto's Joker parts may have been cut as a response to fan criticism online, or perhaps director David Ayer felt Leto had gone far too method with his acting either that or the scenes just plain sucked.

As this comic by JHall and Andrew Bridgman of Dorkly shows us Jared Leto was going to be happy with his portrayal of the Joker regardless of what we all think, but don't tell him you hated his Joker or he might want to be your buddy!

Alaskan Moose Family Plays In The Sprinklers

The dog days of summer can really get you down, even if you're a moose, and we all want to find a fun and refreshing way to beat the heat.

Pools and water parks are great, and hanging out in the frozen foods section of your grocery store will keep you cool for a while.

But take it from the moose family in this video- running through the sprinklers is the most fun way to stay cool and go wild at the same time!

(YouTube Link)

This fun moose footage was captured by Eagle River, Alaska resident Candice Helm, who was kind enough to turn on the sprinklers so that adorable moose family could cool off.

Just don't put out any Moose Chow, Candice, or your summer visitors will never leave!

Vice Writer Tried To Live Like Gwyneth Paltrow For A Week

Lots of people dream of living the decadent life of a movie star, but those dreamers never think about the fact that many celebs have extremely strange views and eating habits.

Vice writer Michael Buchinger adores Gwyneth Paltrow, so when he bought her cookbook It's All Good he just had to see what it was like to live like Gwyneth- by suffering through her strict and strange diet.

Day one started with a glass of cabbage, ginger, mint and lemon and some almonds that had been soaking in water for six hours, which Gwyneth calls the "ideal snack".

Michael didn't agree, but later that day he and his party guests did enjoy a gluten free berry crumble with quinoa flakes from the book so he kept going with the Gwyneth way.

Day two involved Gwyneth's famous miso soup with shiitake mushrooms and bonito flakes, a soup so good she eats it for breakfast and dinner, and a few too many beers at the bar because "She also doesn't stick to her diet all the time, so my exception is totally fine!"

(Image Link)

Which made day three a waking nightmare, and Michael was only able to pull through by thinking about "the time Gwyneth was hiking in Arizona and thought she heard the rocks whispering the mantra, "You have the answer, you are the teacher!"

The Teen Girl Who Met With President Lincoln 30 Minutes A Day

Hearing about a teen girl who met with President Abraham Lincoln for thirty minutes a day over a five month period may make you think of affairs, scandals and inappropriate behavior.

But there was nothing untoward about 17-year-old Lavinia “Vinnie” Ream's relationship with President Lincoln, she was simply an amazing young artist who was given the chance to create sculptures of Lincoln.

Abraham Lincoln was a very busy man in 1864, so granting someone half an hour of his precious time a day was a big deal, but Lincoln didn't do it for posterity or the sake of art- he sat for Lavinia because she was in need:

Her friends in the Senate personally asked Lincoln to pose for the sculpture, but he declined. After hearing that she was a struggling artist from a Midwestern background not dissimilar to his own, however, Lincoln relented. “He granted me sittings for no other reason than that I was in need,” she later wrote. “Had I been the greatest sculptor in the world I am quite sure I would have been refused.”

Lavinia created a bust of Lincoln during that five month of half-hour sittings, and after his passing she agreed to make a full sized memorial statue of the President, becoming the youngest artist and first woman to receive a commission from the U.S. government.

Wizard Vs. Jedi

 photo wizard-vs-jedi_zpsaxntwfdw.gif

Wizards are one of the coolest character archetypes found in the fantasy genre, and Jedis are kinda like wizards only with extensive martial arts training and a cool laser sword.

So who would win if the two were to meet on the field of battle?

I'd vote for the wizard, but this Madcap Brothers video seems to indicate the Jedi would win by batting away the wizard's Magic Missiles. (NSFW due to language)

(YouTube Link)

According to Dungeons & Dragons rules Magic Missiles always hit their target and have no saving throw, so perhaps the wizard in the video is level 0 and still in training?

Siberian Miners Unearth Creepy Mummified Critter

When Siberian miners uncovered a horrific-looking mummified critter corpse in the diamondiferous sands in Udachny they didn't freak out and cry “monster!” - because they thought they'd found a dinosaur.

But most people with a rudimentary understanding of animal anatomy instantly recognized it as the corpse of a mammal, so the dinosaur angle was ruled out with a glance.

(Image Link)

As commenters argued about what it could be they determined it was probably a marten or weasel, possibly a badger, and definitely no big deal much to the miners' dismay.

The creature is currently being transported to the regional capital Yakutsk for examination, where experts will determine whether it's an important find or an elaborate prank.

Inside The Abandoned Grand Orient Express

The Grand Orient Express was one of the most luxurious trains in the world when it began service back in the late 1800s, but by 2009 passenger trains were quickly becoming a thing of the past.

So the Grand was left to rot in a trainyard in Belgium after taking its last trip in December, 2009, which is surprising consider how famous and important that train was in its day.

Equally surprising- how nice the interior of the Grand looks even though it has been virtually left to the elements, a decadent steel corpse captured in all its rusty glory by Brian of Preciousdecay photography.

Brian on exploring the remains of the Grand Orient Express:

“When I step into an abandoned site it feels like stepping into a time machine. I try to feel the emotions of it’s past and that is what I want to show in my pictures,” Brian writes on his website. “When people are looking at my work and raise a question about the “what, why, when” then I feel I have succeeded.”

-Via Bored Panda

EDIT- Apparently the photographer Brian (and everyone online who linked to his photos) had it wrong with this one- this isn't the Grand Orient Express but rather a Type 620 DMU (Diesel Multiple Unit) of the Belgian Railways:

http://i.imgur.com/FOwo1mT.jpg

So still a really cool looking locomotive but not the famous Orient Express, thanks for the edit Jurgen K.

One Pill Makes You Larger...

Pills continue to flow out of our neighborhood pharmacies along with promises of happiness, better sex and a pain free life.

But far too many of these pharmaceuticals come with a hidden cost of dependency, making customers wish they'd never opened the bottle in the first place.

So before you go popping pills to improve your life in one way or another take a note from this comic by Jim Benton and see if there's any way that bottle of pills can improve your life while it's still closed!

The Knights Of Olde Were Actually Huge Jerks

The knights of olde have been heavily romanticized over the years thanks to literature and pop culture, but despite what your favorite fictional stories say knights were big ol' jerks.

I mean, what kind of hero would pillage, rape and slaughter their serf's livestock without moral objection or fear of punishment? A medieval knight, that's who!

Many medieval knights had nothing better to do than hang out on their plot of land all day, since they only worked about 40 days a year, and when those alpha male rich kids in plate mail armor got bored, blood would flow.

But battle was rarely a deadly affair for medieval knights, because common blooded foot soldiers could be punished for killing a knight since they were worth more when held for ransom.

Experiments In Induction Cooking

Induction cooking is one of the coolest forms of "modern" cooking technology, and since the cooking vessel itself is heated via magnetic induction there are no flames or hot coils, so it's also a safer way to cook.

In order to demonstrate how induction cooking works Yuppiechef cut a pan in half and cooked eggs, bacon and chocolate on it, and boiled water in the pan while it was sitting on a magazine.

(YouTube Link)

This video looks like something those product demonstrators at the county fair would show at their booth, but that doesn't make the technology any less impressive.

Stranger Things- The Feline Edition

A group of geeky friends, teens who are too cool for school, a demogorgon, a psychic kid, and the upside down- these are all things found in the new Netflix series Stranger Things.

But as I recall the only cat on the show was in a shadowy lab and only on screen for a sec, and you know how the internet feels about programs without cats.

So illustrator Cassie Murphy drew up the purr-fect cast for the feline TV version of the show, Mangier Things, which will only be airing in our dreams...

One Of The World's Crappiest Jobs- Professional Poo Diver

Sewage is constantly flowing beneath our major cities, our every flush adding to the sea of sewage beneath our feet that we try not to think about very often.

But how can you stop thinking about it, and therefore stop being reminded of your crappy job, when you're a professional poo diver?

If you're Brendan Walsh, owner of Melbourne's East West Dive and Salvage, you remind yourself that your job keeps the waste flowing, and without you people would be plodding around in that fithy muck.

Brendan's company dives into other no-air environments besides sewage, but the poo diving gig is the most important for the community because Australia's sewage system is a bit different than most:

...in Australia, we don’t process our sewerage with chemicals. We get bacteria to break down the solids by aerating them with big stirring machines, 24 hours a day. It’s a very aggressive environment, and moving parts constantly break.

Because the stirring machines are constantly breaking down, and all that crap can't be drained away, sewage farms hire divers like Brendan to do the repairs in a pitch black sea of poop.

And as long as Melbourne keeps crapping Brendan and his team of turd divers will always have their really crappy job.

If The Internet Designed A Video Game

Asking the internet community for input on a video game project is like asking a school full of children to write their own cartoon series- only with extra helpings of sex and violence.

The 1st Day Of Work Vs. The 101st

The first day of a new job feels pretty much the same for everyone- exciting, nerve-wracking, and slightly surreal, with lots of note taking and learning of the ropes.

But, as this comic by Karina Farek show us, by the 101st day the thrill is truly gone, along with any notes you may have taken and your fear of the Big Boss.

You try to stay on the right track by keeping a schedule and taking your lunches at the same time every day, but then you remember they stop serving breakfast at 11...

Most new hires start out caring about their appearance, waking up early to look their best and trying to appear professional while at their desk, but 100 days later appearance = appearing at work.

Because the one thing that really sucks about work, the one thing we tend to forget on our first day, is having a job entails doing all kinds of work!

The Simplest Way To Break Out Of Zip Ties

Zip ties are supposedly some of the hardest restraints to escape from, which is why cops and security personnel around the world use them to catch perps in the field.

But cops aren't the only ones who use zip ties to restrain- scumbags and criminals do too, and knowing how to easily and safely break out of zip ties could be a life saver some day.

So watch this video by Daily Mail and learn how to free yourself from that little plastic band in a snap!

So all it takes is a strong, direct motion to snap zip ties in half, I wonder if there are stronger grades of zip ties that are more resistant to snapping?

Macaulay Culkin Gives His First Major Interview In 10 Years

There have been lots of rumors floating around about Macaulay Culkin since he gave up acting as a young man and became legally emancipated from his parents at 14 since they were trying to jack his $17 million.

People have speculated that he's depressed, on tons of heroin and partying all the time, and his reclusiveness has made him a choice target for paparazzos hoping to break a big story about the Home Alone kid.

But as Macaulay revealed in an interview with the Guardian's Rhik Samadder, his first real interview in over ten years, that kid is all grown up and loving his life.

Macaulay's been digging into passion projects such as his band The Pizza Underground, keeping a low profile in Paris so he'll be left alone by the media, and staying out of the papers by choice.

Macaulay claims he was never really hooked on drugs, all just rumors started as a response to his unconventional lifestyle, and says he'd rather stay in the shadows and be happy than return to the spotlight and be miserable.

Sounds like Macaulay Culkin is going to be all right, which is more than some former child stars can say.

If Video Games Were Ten Percent More Realistic

Many people play video games as an escape from their real lives, an immersive way to think about something or somewhere else for a while and explore a whole new (albeit virtual) world.

Which is why realistic games like Grand Theft Auto, Splinter Cell and Call Of Duty only make up about ten percent of the market, and why adding ten percent more realism to classic video games totally ruins them. (Barely NSFW due to language)

This Dorkly Video illustrates why our favorite classic games are better off being as unrealistic as possible, because we can't have the entire Yoshi population getting put in prison!

You'll Never Dine Alone At The Kirby Cafe

There's a little pink puffball named Kirby who literally inhales his food, and his enemies, a cute yet strange little protagonist who first captured the imagination of gamers in Kirby's Dream Land back in 1992.

Kirby is one of the biggest eaters in the world of video games, so the recent opening of a Kirby themed Cafe in Osaka makes perfect sense.

And it only makes sense for the Cafe to offer quite a spread, from yummy looking entrees to a ton of adorable desserts, since Kirby has such a big appetite.

But the little added touches are what make the Kirby Cafe so special- the little Kirby statues on the table, the delightful decor inside and out, and a party of one will never dine alone because they get to sit with Kirby's pal Waddle Dee.

Ten Seriously Funny Batman Webcomics

(Comic via John McNamee's Pie Comic)

Batman is already in the comics plenty, but all we ever get to see is his scowling sourpuss serious side and we almost never witness ol' Batsy having any fun.

So what does the Caped Crusader do for fun? He likes to share his thoughts via social media.

(Comic via Pictures In Boxes)

He also likes to discuss matters of existentialism and philosophy with his fellow superheroes, even though those discussions rarely provide any real insight.

(Comic via SoyCaboReyes)

And when hanging from the rafters with his friends fails to clear Batman's head he'll settle for a relaxing drive around Gotham in his good ol' Batmobile.

Writer Travels Across The U.S. To Investigate The Swedish Fish Theory

There's a theory going around the Net that says giving a bag of candy to a electronics technician when you drop your unit off to be repaired will make them look favorably upon you and finish the work faster.

Redditors have dubbed it the Swedish Fish Theory, but Motherboard writer Joseph Neighbor wasn't convinced this theory was true, so he decided to investigate.

(YouTube Link)

Joseph's investigation revealed many service pros will appreciate your candy gift and therefore might be motivated to speed up your repairs, but let's hope it doesn't catch on or those pros will start expecting Swedish Fish with every work order...

Two Days In The Life Of Andy Warhol

It was easy to get caught up in Andy Warhol's artsy persona and forget that he was still a pretty normal guy, who lived a fairly simple life and had few vices or fetishes despite public assumption.

In fact, when you peruse these photographs taken by Robert Levin you can see that persona skin almost completely stripped away, as Andy becomes a regular coffee sippin', bike ridin', facial treatment receivin' guy.

Although he was the kind of "regular guy" who would just happen to run into a friend on Madison Avenue- and that friend would be John Waters.

Robert Levin shadowed and shot candid photos of Warhol for two days back in 1981 and had no real crazy stories to tell, just the tale of a guy who became famous for his pop art and ended up feeling like he needed to wear a bulletproof vest.
