Birth and death are integral parts of life on Earth, and even though many animal lovers don't want to admit or accept it animals are born killers and raised for survival by Mother Nature.
Artists who choose to focus on natural themes generally try to keep their works lighthearted and full of positivity, thinking that's what their fellow animal lovers would want, but that's not always true.

Bad haircuts are the unrelenting foes we encounter in our quest to reinvent ourselves by radically changing our look, catching us completely by surprise and forever changing our personal sense of style.
In fact, some hairstyles are so bad the poor soul who has fallen victim to the scissors and electric razor might be better off shaving their head and letting it grow out again from the ground floor.
Everyone has a horrible haircut tale to tell, but the measure of a hero is their ability to bounce back from a bad look and become a hirsute hero, inspiring future generations to take chances with their hairdos.
This guy took a chance and shaved the side of his head while keeping the rest long, never knowing that he was sporting the Skrillex hairstyle before it was cool.
As a young comedy geek I loved repeating Joe Isuzu lines in the schoolyard, and even though Isuzu dealerships feared poking fun at their salespeople was the wrong way to go sales spiked when Joe's ads hit the airwaves.
Mario and Luigi would look really strange in real life, and their frantic Kart racing sessions would look even stranger considering all the banana peels, winged turtle shells and Bullet Bills flying around the track.
But colorful madcap silliness is the name of the game, so when wacky people decide to reenact Mario Kart in real life you can bet the whole thing is going to be an utterly ridiculous affair.
Receiving rejection letters is par for the course when you're trying to become a published author, but if everyone who ever received a rejection letter gave up the world would be devoid of print media.
The trick is to try and try again until a publisher is willing to take a chance on you, either that or get an agent who won't take no for an answer.
The Marvel movies are bringing a whole new fan base to the theaters to watch the superheroic spectacle- people who don't read comic books.
They may not know every character's backstory, or how the storyline connects to the rest of the Marvel universe, but that doesn't make those spectacular films any less enjoyable to watch.
But any of the uninitiated who want to get caught up before new Marvel movies involving the Infinity Gauntlet storyline come out should watch this hilarious animated episode of Bite-Sized Comics by Noah Sterling and get hip to that Thanos jive!
Animation is an artform that one may never truly master, and many animators spend decades of their lives working at their craft and improving their skills.
But all the non-art related things we have to do in our lives tend to get in the way of working on our art, and an animator's passion for their craft can be diminished by all the hours spent at their day jobs.
Animator turned front end developer JustGoscha knows full well how life can get in the way of art, but he came up with a clever way to get back in the game- creating a hand drawn walk cycle a day for 100 days.
Walk cycles are one of the hardest elements of traditional animation to master, but it must have been even harder to come up with so many different examples, way to strut your creative stuff JustGoscha!
Disney Animation Studios used to employ the most talented artists in the world, but these days Disney likes to bring in talent from outside the Studio pool to share their unique vision of the Disney characters we know and love.
Heather Theurer is one of these talented indie artists who was given the chance to do Disney her way, and the paintings she has created of Alice, Peter Pan and Ariel are nothing short of brilliant.
With plenty of classical influence, modern character design aesthetics and emotional depth to be found in each piece Heather's works are sure to appeal to young and old classic Disney fans alike.
Regional dialects and accents can make otherwise ordinary words sound a bit silly, and these strange pronunciations become the stuff of legend as people from other areas puzzle over the odd word's meaning.
In the case of "Jawn" Philadelphians have turned "joint" into an all purpose noun that is used to describe everything from locations and people to inanimate objects and abstract concepts.
The origin of "Jawn" is still a bit of a mystery, and as new generations of Philadelphians grow up replacing as many words as they can with this silly slang the history of "Jawn" has begun to fade away.
But thanks to the efforts of University of Philadelphia Ph.D student Taylor Jones the story of "Jawn" will live on forever, as he uncovers the word's connection to hip hop, New York and semantic bleaching.
Anybody who has spent enough time on the highways has driven past a semi-trailer truck with a personalized paint job and had a good laugh at what that nutty trucker has painted on the side.
Truckers who put some tacky advertising eyesore on the sides of their trucks are annoying, but those truckers who put something meant to make us laugh on the side of their rigs and trailers are the comedy kings of the road.
If you see a hilarious truck or trailer design as you're heading down the highway try to keep your eyes on the road, because truckers appreciate the laughs but they hate bad drivers.
It's mighty hard to get an internet signal in North Korea, and the government tries to control all information shared online, which means posting pics can make you an enemy of the state.
So any intrepid travelers who want to visit North Korea and go home with photos taken inside the country must either find a way to smuggle them out or become friends with Dennis Rodman.
Michal Huniewicz shot some amazing and insightful photos during his visit to North Korea, and even though the tour guide told him he'd likely have them taken away he managed to make it out of the country with all of his pics.
Michal's bystander images reveal some dark things about North Korea, like the constant military presence in Pyongyang, grocery stores with barren shelves, and massive city centers where the people aren't allowed to go.
But his images also show us moments of vibrant life within the capital city, as people crowd the city streets during the day and carry on like nothing's wrong with the country they're forced to call home.
While Mickey Mouse, Garfield the cat and Donald Duck have long been the most popular write-in candidates those characters just aren't tough enough to deal with the modern state of affairs.
That's why we need a candidate who knows when it's time to go out drinking with world leaders and when it's time to teach the world our peaceful ways...by force, a candidate like Bending Unit 22 Bender Rodriguez.
Gold is the standard for wealth just like it has been for thousands of years, and people think adding the precious metal to everything from food to clothing to paper money will magically make these things more valuable.
But sometimes adding gold to something actually devalues an object, like the time PaperGold swore adding a tenth of a gram of laminated gold to a ten dollar bill would make it more valuable. It actually made that ten dollar ripoff worth a whopping $3.82.
Other times adding gold to something is simply a waste of time, resulting in low sales and a bunch of innocent gold ore going to waste.
Do we really need to dip our staples in gold? The Dutch designers behind the OOOMS gold staples seem to think so, but they claim their staples are meant to be "applied to clothing" as a "form of jewelry".
You know what else is gold and makes good jewelry? Gold jewelry!
Power armor is an integral piece of gear in Fallout 4, and every self respecting Wastelander knows that customizable suit of armor can make the difference between besting your foes or becoming dinner for a Deathclaw.
That being said, it's hard to keep all that fusion core power from going to your head.
Level up however you see fit, but keep those poor settlers out of it!
Electric Bunny Comics makes a good point about XP in Fallout 4- just because it's easier than ever to level up doesn't mean you should kill the entire Commonwealth just for the sake of dinging sixty!
Going on a first date means worrying about making a good impression and hoping everything goes smoothly, but more often than not something crappy happens during the date that makes things awkward.
That's why they say you shouldn't get drunk or otherwise before you go out on a date, but a young lady named Maleka, who goes by @_blotty on Twitter, would like to add coffee to the list of pre-date don'ts.
She had a crappy experience on a date because she had to poop...and the toilet wouldn't flush.
I am a confident, calm and self assured woman...so I felt comfortable popping in his bathroom. This was a mistake. His toilet did not flush
Parents used to live in fear of their video game obsessed kids playing Grand Theft Auto then deciding it would be a grand idea to steal a car and lead the police on a high speed chase, but thankfully no kid was ever that dumb.
However, convicted dumb criminal Ryan Stone proved age does not guarantee wisdom back in 2013 when he started his GTA in real life crime spree by stealing a red Ford Edge left running in a gas station parking lot.
But Ryan had just stolen a car with a four-year-old in the back and realized he needed to bail out, so he pulled a GTA move and blocked off another car on the road, dragging the driver out before speeding off again.
After a failed attempt to jump cars once again Ryan took off on foot, the scene ending dramatically yet unlike GTA because the helicopter didn't mow him down in the middle of the street.
Whether he was actually trying to imitate the video game series or not is unknown, but everyone involved is thankful the incident did not play out like GTA because nobody was killed or seriously injured during the spree.
Things got mighty freaky in Frisco during those free love days, and you could see all kinds of strange sights and interesting people on the sidewalks in and around Haight-Ashbury, making it a prime stop for a bus tour.
This "descent into psychedelia" looks pretty tame to our modern eyes, but imagine the wonder and horror those (mostly Midwestern) squares felt when they saw what those hippies were up to on those acid soaked SF streets!
Spring is in the air, and people are starting to feel alive again as the winter chill starts to thaw and melt into the bodies of water we'll be swimming in come summer.
As the temperatures rise our sweaters go into storage and out come the short sleeves, and if you're looking for some new tees to put a spring in your step and make you feel fresh again then check out these tees from the NeatoShop.
Spring means new life, new green growth and a new season to explore the natural world
It's the nightmare story the identity protection companies would love to tell you in order to sell you on their services, but unlike most of their made up scenarios this one actually happened to a writer from Lifehacker.
His name is Eric Ravenscraft, and his identity was stolen by someone who was kind enough to file his taxes for him too, which is how he discovered the identity theft had taken place.
He received a letter from the IRS stating he'd filed his taxes twice, and all the strange emails and the fact that his Spotify account kept playing Enrique Iglesias suddenly made sense.
Even though The Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time came out for the Nintendo 64 back in 1998 it continues to fill the heart containers of gamers young and old with joy while it fills their heads with sweet little ocarina ditties.
While Majora's Mask may have more of a fan art presence, Ocarina of Time has something that other game doesn't- lots more gameplay elements that can easily be made fun of in comic strip form.
Chopsticks are used by many different Asian cultures in many different ways, and considering they've been around for an estimated six thousand years it'd be silly to think otherwise.
But it seems how they're used, what they're made out of and what they're used to eat varies by country rather than by type of cuisine.
In Japan chopsticks are used to eat anything that's not considered hand food, and the debate whether sushi is hand food or not rages on.
In Hong Kong and mainland China chopsticks are used for traditional rice and noodle dishes, and any western foods are eaten with knife and fork.
And in Thailand chopsticks are often used to load up your spoon with ingredients from the bowl before you take a bite.
Mashable asked foodies from various countries how chopsticks are used in their culture, and it seems the one thing they all agree on is this- don't stick them in your bowl standing straight up, as this is symbolically associated with death.
Back in 1989 the Rolling Stones were winding up their Steel Wheels tour and looking to do a pay-per-view broadcast, but the only place tour manager Michael Cohl could find to book was the Donald Trump's Plaza Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City.
I opened my big mouth in the meeting with The Rolling Stones where they go, "This is all great, but we're not going to be affiliated with Donald Trump. At all. Screw you." And I go, "I will control Donald Trump! Don't you worry!"
So, we signed the contract. Donald agrees that he will not be in any of the promotion except in Atlantic City, and he will not show up at the gig!
The Stones were then set to give an interview before the show, but Trump swooped in and made himself the star of the show:
I give him the [come here gesture]. "Come on, Donald, what are you doing? A) You promised us you wouldn't even be here and, B) you promised you would never do this." He says, "But they begged me to go up, Michael! They begged me to go up!" I say, "Stop it. Stop it. This could be crazy. Do what you said you would. Don't make a liar of yourself."
The Stones were understandably upset about the Don's double-cross, but Keith Richards was downright livid:
They call me back, at which point Keith pulls out his knife and slams it on the table and says, "What the hell do I have you for? Do I have to go over there and fire him myself? One of us is leaving the building – either him, or us." I said, "No. I'll go do it. Don't you worry."
Don't mess with knife wielding vampires, Donald, or you might get cut...
