Introverts Club - Membership Is Full At This Time, Please Check Back Never


Introverts Club by Tobe Fonseca

Introverts don't get to team up, hang out in cliques or become part of the gang because they're always busy doing their own thing by themselves, but in that way they're all part of the Introverts Club, so that's something. And who knows an introvert better than another introvert? Nobody, certainly not those flashy pandas who go out on the town raising hell like their club is the coolest, you wanna see cool? Ask an introvert how they feel about a night out on the town and watch that apathy pour out of every fiber of their being, now that's cool! (Acting aloof is cool, right?)

Show the world you're proud of your loner status with this Introverts Club t-shirt by Tobe Fonseca, it's the hip way to express your individuality without conforming to boring fashion standards.

The Doctors Strange - Three Of A Kind They're Not

There are good guys out there who sport the Doctor Strange moniker, and one is even the Sorcerer Supreme tasked with defending humanity from the timelessly evil Dormammu, but more often than not a strange doctor is a bad thing.

Lil' Devil - Toon In For Some Fiery Fun!


Lil' Devil by poopsmoothie

Hot Stuff has always been seen as more of a comical character than the one who instills fear in the hearts of men, but after binge watching his favorite new superhero show he decided it was time to live up to his Little Devil nature. He figured if some blind guy could kick butt while pretending to be a devil he could kick twice as much butt and make his papa proud at the same time. So Hot Stuff headed to Harveyville and started looking for a scrap, but all he could find were cute cartoon characters with big heads and even bigger hearts! Man, no wonder there's never any crime in Harveyville....

The Slaughtered Lamb - The Safest Place To Be During A Full Moon


The Slaughtered Lamb by Nemons

If you should pay London a visit and decide to go backpacking outside the city you'd best be back in the safety and comfort of your hotel room before dark- or you may find yourself on the dinner menu. For the people who gather each night at The Slaughtered Lamb know a secret they're not keen on sharing with tourists, a deadly secret that has resulted in the death and dismemberment of many who've dared travel in the woods after dark. Some call it a werewolf, others see it as a malevolent spirit meant to make man pay for their offenses against nature, but the last American who paid The Slaughtered Lamb a visit knows what's out there, and he's no longer in any shape to discuss the incident...

The Ranger Club - Don't You Forget About Me


The Ranger Club by Prime Premne

They were five strangers who found themselves all dressed up with no place to go, stuck in Power Ranger school detention until Principal Zedd said they were free to go. Everything they'd fought for in their young lives had led up to this point, and even though they went from forming the Megazord to being mega-bored they learned a lot about each other that day in detention, which made them grow stronger as a group. Turns out it was a mighty good idea to use their morphin' abilities to cause mischief after all, and they would look back on that day over breakfast and smile, especially when they thought about the time the Pink Ranger knocked Principal Zedd out with a mega-powered fart!

Get suited up for adventure with this The Ranger Club t-shirt by Prime Premne, it's a great way to show the world you've been a member of the Mighty Morphin' fan club since back in the day!

Don't Be Negative...BE A PROTON! - The Scientific Power Of Positivity


Don't be negative... BE A PROTON! by Andropov

People can learn a lot from protons, because they keep their charge positive to the +1e power and don't get all massed up like those heavy neutrons. The proton has learned to keep their positive charge alive no matter who or what they encounter in the nucleus of life, and where others see atomic as a dirty bomb word they see it as an energy that has a lasting effect on the planet. So when you feel yourself slipping into a negative black hole, and you need something to lift your spirits, speak to the protons inside you and give yourself a positive charge!

Add some scientific awesomeness to your geeky wardrobe with this Don't Be Negative...BE A PROTON! t-shirt by Andropov, it's just the thing to cure those life on Earth blues.

Tea Club - One Lump Or Two?

Sipping on a cup of tea in Totoro makes the brew taste like a fantasy forest adventure, complete with earthy undertones of tree bark and fresh rain with just a hint of catbus.

80's SAMUS - The Original Video Game Misfit


80's SAMUS by MRCLV

Samus may not be the most famous bad girl of the 1980s, but her rebellion against Mother Brain and her misfit nature has made her the most enduring role model for girls who aren't content to sit by in silence while men run their lives. With her weapon array and awesome abilities Samus became the character both boys and girls wished they could become, even if only so they could wear her sweet armor and fire her blazin' hot arm cannon. But like many 80s pop culture icons Samus Aran has gone from household name to novelty character gamers bring up when they want to prove they're from the old school. However, those of us who remember how her adventures spiced up our otherwise boring lives, and that cool helmet removing reveal at the end of Metroid, will always think of Samus as the raddest!

Get your old school swagger on with this 80's SAMUS t-shirt by MRCLV, it's the fashionable way to take your geeky wardrobe back to the good old days of gaming.

New Adobe Software Can Make You Say Anything After 20 Minutes Of Listening

The technology of the future seems to be designed to make us paranoid, and technophobes are often terrified when they discover what artificial intelligence software can say and do nowadays.

But the new Adobe audio software VoCo isn't artificial intelligence software- it's an editing suite designed to help people warp and modify audio tracks in any way they can imagine. 

It just so happens to have one very cool, very AI feature that can simulate a person's voice after listening to them talk for about 20 minutes, allowing users to type out whatever they want that person to say.  

(YouTube Link)

This software seems like a good idea that will inevitably be used for evil, but Adobe tech Zeyu Jin says they're working on ways to tell the real voice apart from the fake:

“Don’t worry,” Jin said. “We actually have researched how to prevent forgery. Think about watermarking detection. As we’re getting the results much better, making it so people can’t distinguish between the fake and the real one, we’re working harder trying to make it detectable.” He then gave a thumbs up and grinned.

Hogwarts Versus Real High School

We all know Hogwarts has very little in common with the average high school, but when the differences between the two are spelled out for you Muggle life pales by comparison.

High school students are picked on, sorted into dozens of cliques and stereotyped according to their differences and style of dress by their fellow students.

Meanwhile at Hogwarts students are required to dress the same, but they're only sorted into four different cliques, so that's different.

Oh, and every meal at Hogwarts is a mouth-watering feast, while high schoolers wash down bread with cartons of milk.

But there are some similarities between Hogwarts and Muggle high school- students get bullied in both places, and jocks tend to rule the school.

George Rottkamp drew up this magical side-by-side comparison comic strip for Dorkly so we can all see what we missed by attending our simple Muggle schools.

Detectives And Police Officers Reveal The Cases They Didn't Want To Solve

(Image Link)

Contrary to popular belief police officers and detectives don't want to solve every case they work on, but the reasons why they'd rather leave some cases unsolved would surprise you.

Sometimes they're trying to protect the killer:

I had been alerted to a well known local philanthropist, turned up dead. These were the days where physician assisted euthanasia was illegal in most of the developed world. This man, I had known him quite well and he had been suffering from a very serious terminal illness that was going to kill him before his 40th birthday, shattering his family... Especially his 2 young children. An autopsy had determined that he had been murdered, intentional overdose of morphine. The Health Authority and Department of Justice wanted us to investigate and bring the person who essentially murders him to justice. We chalked it up that there was no way we could ever determine who it was that killed him. Years later, his wife sent our department a letter saying she gave her husband the lethal dose to put him out of his misery. I wish I had never known.

And they'll even turn a blind eye to a killing if the victims were criminals themselves:

Ex cop, NSW - Australia. 7 years. I really never wanted to find the answer to two particular murders in my area. 2 known sexual offenders were killed in the space of 8 weeks. One was a rock spider (pedophile), the other used to drug women. The 2 issues were unrelated. Only one of the alledged offenders was caught (also a scumbag 1%). He was released after a week due to lack of evidence. I know it's bad to wish death on people but these two blokes were just rancid. As a cop it was my job to find the offenders but as a human I had no interest in solving the issue at all. Luckily I was never in charge of the investigations.

(Image Link)

This serious topic was discussed on Ask Reddit- Detectives/Police Officers of Reddit, what case did you not care to find the answer? (NSFW)

They responded by discussing the cases they hate to deal with, and they all agreed on one thing- the cases involving children and animals are the absolute worst:

Responded to a 4 year old who was unconscious and vomiting. Without getting into the details, it didn't take long after my arrival to realize it was a cover up. My partner and I already knew where this incident was headed, but you keep your head down and try and do the job without getting emotional. Mother and father were both adamantly lying that the child had just eaten some junk food and had gone to sleep before he started vomiting. Without getting into the details, investigation revealed that the father was mad at the child for eating some junk food. So he grabbed the child by the ankles and swung him around the house into furniture all over the home, nearly killing him. It's one of those cases that you don't want to investigate, because you know ahead of time what the outcome is going to be how bad it's going to get.

How Cut Fruit Reacts Under UV Light

Fruit always looks delicious even if it's sliced, chopped, crushed or otherwise mangled, and watching someone cut a piece of fruit tends to make my mouth water.

But it turns out color has a lot to do with produce appeal, and when a piece of fruit is sliced open to reveal flesh that's a different color than expected it triggers our WTF response rather than our salivary glands.

(YouTube Link)

This video by Mathieu Stern and UV photographer Pierre-Louis Ferrer shows what the inside of our favorite fruit looks like when viewed under UV light. Here's how it was made:

For this UV video, the subject is illuminated directly by UV emitting lamps . UV filter is placed on the lens, which allows ultraviolet light to pass and which absorbs or blocks all visible and infrared light. UV filters are made from special colored glass and may be coated or sandwiched with other filter glass to aid in blocking unwanted wavelengths.

Our Favorite Cartoon Characters Look Even Cooler After A Classic Paintover

(Image Link)

Character designers know a character's basic shapes, silhouette and the overall use of smooth vs sharp shapes help give the character personality, but color scheme is (arguably) the least important element of a character.

(Image Link)

Color schemes can be messed with during paintovers as designers see fit without "breaking" the character, and the proper application of shading and highlights can give a flat character a bit more appeal.

(Image Link)

Cartoon paintovers are also a fun practice exercise for artists, challenging them to enhance the look of the original characters while keeping their personalities intact underneath the digital paint job.

Fascinating Facts About Ravens

Humans have always had an uneasy relationship with ravens, and for every civilization that thought of them as pure evil there was one who saw the raven as a powerful deity or nature spirit.

But despite what some bird haters will have you believe ravens don't want to watch the human world burn- they want to be a part of it.

(YouTube Link)

Ravens are one of the smartest animals on Earth, they can imitate human speech much like parrots, and scientists believe they communicate by using nonvocal signals and may even feel empathy for their fellow ravens. 

Ravens also roam around in gangs during adolescence, love to trick other animals out of their food and roll around on ant hills, so perhaps their bad reputation isn't pure superstition after all.

Everything We Know About The North Korean Internet

(Image Link)

When the world was given a glimpse of the previously unseen North Korean "internet" we didn't know what to expect, and some still don't understand what the hell they were looking at.

It was easy enough to tell the Air Koryo site is meant for travel and another site featured pics of food, but beyond that the screenshots people shared didn't really tell us much about these sites.

(Image Link)

WhoIsHostingThis? put together a fairly exhaustive guide to Kim-Jung Un's private section of cyberspace for those who are interested, revealing the facts and figures behind the North Korean internet.

According to their research there are only 1,024 IP addresses (Los Angeles has approximately 15,000 IP addresses) and only about 18 different websites appear to be active, including:

  • Korean Central News Agency: this was the first website to launch in North Korea. It came online using a Korean server in October 2010, and uses Star Joint Venture’s IP block. It was previously served from a Japanese datacenter.
  • Air Koryo: the North Korean state airline. The country is thought to have a handful of commercial airports, with the primary one being Pyongyang Sunan International.
  • Korean Cookery Website: a site full of Korean recipes, aimed at housewives.
  • Friend: a network for North Korean citizens to swap ebooks and make connections. This website shares a server with the official government site.
  • National Unity: a Korean language website, aimed at citizens of surrounding countries (including South Korea).

Maybe if we all send Outstanding Leader Kim-Jong Un a friend request on Friend we can end the global madness, I bet he shares lots of kitty videos!

The World's Most Valuable Pokémon Card Just Sold At Auction For Nearly $55k

(Image Link)

Parents just don't understand why kids go crazy for Pokémon, but when the card game first came out parents found one element of the game made perfect sense- the high cash value of certain cards.

These rare cards were randomly placed in booster packs, giving every kid the chance to score big when they opened up a pack, but those cards are worthless compared to the rarest of them all- the Japanese promo Pikachu Illustrator card.

The Pikachu Illustrator card was given to winners of the CoroCoro Comic Illustration Contest in Japan back in 1998, and since only 20-39 of these cards were ever made they sell for a small fortune.

How much is a small fortune you ask? A Pikachu Illustrator Card just sold at Heritage Auctions in Beverly Hills for $54,970, making it the most expensive Pokémon card ever sold.

Meet Batgirl, The Russian Daredevil Who "Flies" Atop Trains

When a daredevil gives herself the nickname "Batgirl" she's setting the bar really high for herself, but Russian daredevil Kobzarro has truly owned the name.

She didn't own it by fighting crime or swinging on a rope high above the city- she owned it by surfing and "flying" atop trains while wearing a cool costume.

Kobzarro is clearly a more theatrical version of Batgirl, but to her credit it does take nerves of steel to surf on top of trains, and just a touch of madness to do so in the middle of winter in Moscow.

Hotly Debated Questions From Movies And TV Shows That Have Answers

Arguing about fictional franchises is a great way to jaw about the media we love and prove we know the franchise inside and out, but an arguer should always do their homework first so they don't lose face in front of their fellow fans.

Because imagine how embarassed you'd be if you claimed Groundhog Day was purposely written without an explanation of how Phil got stuck in the time loop, only to find out about the second draft of the script.

The second draft spells out that Phil's ex girlfriend Stephanie Decastro put a curse on the poor guy and that Phil is actually supposed to be stuck in the time loop for 10,000 years. 

And speaking of things that are spelled out in the script but never made it onto the screen- the contents of the mysterious FedEx box in Cast Away was originally supposed to be revealed to be this:

In the third draft of the script Chuck decided to open the box after he'd been on the island for 1,000 days, and inside he discovered two bottles of homemade salsa verde and a note from a woman begging her husband to come back.

Roald Dahl Once Hosted A TV Show Similar To The Twilight Zone

Beloved author, fighter pilot, spy and all around interesting guy Roald Dahl may be best known as the creator of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Matilda and The BFG, but he also wrote macabre adult stories that would scare the wits out of a kid.  

Most of the short stories Dahl wrote in his parallel writing career were perfect for anthology TV, since they're often cautionary tales with a surprise ending. 

So when CBS network producers were under the gun to fill the spot left behind by Jackie Gleason's epic failure of a talk show You're In The Picture they called Roald Dahl.

Roald naturally jumped at the chance to bring his strange and creepy stories to life on a TV show, and thus the series Way Out was born.

It aired right before The Twilight Zone for one season in 1961, and Roald provided the intro and epilogue much like Rod Serling or Alfred Hitchcock did on their shows, only smokier.

Strangely, only the first episode "William & Mary" was written by Dahl, even though the producers initially wanted to base every episode on one of Dahl's macabre short stories.

The Must Know References In Rick And Morty

Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland are equal opportunity parodists on their animated series Rick And Morty, and they include a squanchillion references to pop culture into every episode of the show. 

Now you could watch and rewatch every episode to catch all the references, but who the hell has time for all that when there are Mr. Meeseeks to boss around and peace among worlds to spread? 

So instead of wasting your life watching TV you should waste a little less of your life watching this fun video of Must-Know References by Wisecrack! (NSFW-ish bits)

(YouTube Link)

It reveals the references found in episodes like Something Ricked This Way Comes (fairly obvious references there), Lawnmower Dog (again, pretty obvious reference) and Auto Erotic Assimilation (okay, that one's not as pervy as it sounds...)

The Secrets Of Medieval Castles

(Image Link)

There's a reason many Medieval castles are still standing today, aside from the fact that most were built out of stone- they were constructed by builders who knew their stuff.

These builders didn't waste time with a bunch of decorative elements or other unnecessary additions, so pretty much every detail we see in a castle was put there on purpose.

The moat made it hard for an army on foot or horseback to run up to the castle walls during a siege, but more importantly moats prevented invading armies from tunneling beneath the castle- because their tunnels would flood.

The main gate was also meant to serve as a death trap, as it opened up into a small secured courtyard where the invading army would be trapped and quickly cut down from above by archers.

But to me the most interesting fact shared by Will Kalif of All Things Medieval has to do with the very logical reason why castle stairwells are so narrow and turn clockwise versus counter-clockwise:

...any attackers coming up the stairs had their sword hands (right hand) against the interior curve of the wall and this made it very difficult for them to swing their swords.

Defenders had their sword hands on the outside wall, which meant they had more room to swing. Another ingenious design of stairs was that they were designed with very uneven steps. Some steps were tall and other steps were short.

The inhabitants, being familiar with the uneven pattern of the stair heights could move quickly up and down the stairs but attackers, in a dimly lit stairwell, would easily fall and get bogged down in the stairwells.

This made them vulnerable to attacks and slowed their attacks down significantly.
