They call him the king of the dinosaurs, and despite his tiny arms Tyrannosaurus Rex really did rule over many of the placid herbivores in his kingdom. But T-Rex wasn't all bite- he was also an adventurous soul, who roamed around his kingdom exploring places weaker dinosaurs would never dare to tread. For his legs were every bit as strong as his jaw, and his mind was as sharp as his teeth, so standing around all day eating the same old stuff wasn't going to work for him- he needed to find new places, with new creatures to taste...
Take your favorite dinosaur with you wherever you go with this T-Rex t-shirt by Albertocubatas, it's a roaring good design that will blow your fellow dino fans' minds!
One of the more popular automotive-related urban legends is the tale of "nothing but green", in which a driver claims to have hit X amount of green lights in a row while driving through the city.
This urban legend is hard to believe in big cities like Los Angeles, New York or San Francisco, because it seems like all the other drivers on the road would make it really hard to continuously every light, green or not.
But NYC ride-share driver Noah Forman hit an astounding 240 green lights while driving through Manhattan, and Shawn Swetsky posted Noah's dashcam footage to prove it.
With a name like Mister Sinister you don't expect him to be a nice guy, but the guy is so depraved that his actions have pushed the boundary of what is acceptable for publication in a comic book.
He was born Nathaniel Essex, a scientist and contemporary of Charles Darwin so obsessed with human evolution he conducted experiments on his disabled son- and after his son died he dug up the body so he could continue experimenting on the boy.
His wife dubbed him "Sinister" with her dying breath, but she had no idea how cruel Mr. Sinister would become as he kept tinkering with his own DNA and the DNA of many other mutants.
This tinkering would result in the creation of Jean Grey and Namor clones, the birth of Cable and the Morlocks (who were products of Mr. Sinister's former student), and the deaths of many people.
Mister Sinister continues to play God, which is why he makes such an interesting enemy for the X-Men, who have proven to be the only superfolks who stand a chance against Sinister.
There is a noticeable difference between the average superhero comics from the 80s and beyond and issues starring the same characters from the 1950s and 60s, and that difference is all thanks to the Comics Code Authority.
Susana Polo of Polygon's Issue At Hand discusses the silly effect the Comics Code had on comic storylines, touching on how writers fought back with the power of morally neutral absurdity and how Nixon and Stan Lee helped cut out the Code.
The battle between good and evil, justice and crime, nature and the unnatural will continue until the end of time, and although Splinter and Shredder won't live forever their struggle will live on long after they've been laid to rest. Which is why Donatello chose to use Shredder and sensei Splinter as his subjects when he started painting, because the two embody the eternal struggle and they look really cool when they fight!

They've had no problem obeying Rick, and even though they don't take young Morty seriously they still listen to what he wants, but that annoying asshat Jerry has pushed those little blue people too far.

Things are getting to be so bad these days that even the world's penguin population has to find a side hustle to stay afloat, and most of them have taken to busking. Their waddling prevents them from doing most physical labor, and their short temper keeps them from being employed in the customer service industry, but they're surprisingly good singers and they can strum a guitar better than Buddy Holly!

Little Fry had just finished watching his favorite sci-fi animated feature when he heard a bunch of metallic machine sounds and crashing trees in the forest near his house. He threw on his green Slurm onesie and ran outside to see what all the noise was about, secretly hoping to encounter an iron giant like the one in his favorite flick, but instead he came face to foot with Bender Rodriguez- drunk robot at large. It seems Professor Farnsworth had made the mistake of testing his enlarging ray on Bender, and before he could shrink him back down Bender had broken out of Planet Express and gone on a drunken crime spree of epic proportions...

They're the villainous of all villains, and they weren't just drawn that way- they were pure evil from conception. But what sort of nefarious ne'er-do-well would let these monsters loose on the world? Why, the concept artists and animators, of course! They're the people who came up with the bright idea to let a bunch of maleficent misfits loose in a world full of princesses pure as the driven snow, living marionettes and cute little man-cubs, which naturally led to the rise of evil and the introduction of conflict in an otherwise peaceful world.

It's hard to enjoy a tropical destination like Scarif when there's a war brewing, which is why nobody ever visits resorts built by the Empire. But if you're adventurous, and don't mind having a few blaster battles along the way, then Scarif can be as exciting as it is luxurious and gorgeous. Situated in the Outer Rim Territories, Scarif was once famous as a vacation destination and one of Star Tours most visited planets, but then the Empire came in and set up shop and ruined an otherwise idyllic tropical paradise with their pew-pew-pewing and giant metal camels. So if you're among the brave, bold and utterly rebellious who will consider coming to Scarif on vacation do yourself a favor- pack some heavy artillery!

The land of Goo-Goo-G'Joob is home to many strange and unsettling creatures, from the crabalocker fishwife to the choking smokers, but the most mercurial yet fragile of all G'Joob's citizens is the eggmen. They waddle around seeking a purpose in life, and while some crack up under the pressure of everyday life others let their shells grow harder, so the joker's laugh doesn't sting and the policeman's baton doesn't spill their brains. But if he's not careful the eggman will become too hard and toothy, letting his soft yolk become hard boiled as he transforms into the walrus...
This totally trippy Eggman and the Walrus t-shirt by Aaron Morales brings your favorite Beatles song to life like never before, slip it on and you'll blow people's minds wherever you go!
Jack had shared intimate moments with some rather strange and powerful women while roaming around the Caribbean, but the pirate lord Sparrow had never met a girl like Ariel! She was unlike any other woman, or mermaid, that he'd ever met, and her enthusiasm for life above the surface made him want to smuggle her aboard the Black Pearl and show her the world. But, alas, Ariel was not cut out for the pirate's life, and all those sword fights, cannon blasts and open sea battles made the little mermaid long for the idyllic life she once had under the sea...

They fight, and bite, and hack and shoot and smack, but Negan's bat puts an end to all that and makes Rick cry as he watches some of his dear friends die. Somehow Negan's Saviors find the whole scene to be drop dead hilarious, but Rick's crew fails to see the humor in the situation so the two tribes are sworn to go to war. They'll fight like cats and mice, eviscerating their foes in a cartoonish manner that doesn't look as fun in living color, but in the end audiences will always toon in to see who will die next!
This The Show Of Rick And Negan t-shirt by Legendary Phoenix was made for walking, and fighting, and suriving, but mostly it was made to be comfy while you watch your favorite zombie apocalypse TV show!
We tend to think of spirits as being so far removed from humans that we have nothing in common with them, but spirits seem to enjoy the same activities as people do. And nothing brings a bunch of spirits together like a home cooked meal, which affords them the time to sit together and discuss all of their recent spectral activity. Together the spirits would chat away the hours between dusk and dawn over some hibachi grilled goodness, and whether they dwelled in a castle, a forest or deep underground the spooky neighbors would find themselves becoming fast friends.
Add some anime awesomeness to your geeky wardrobe with this Gathering of Spirits t-shirt by Charamath, it's sure to spark lots of conversations between you and your fellow Ghibli fans!
All those bad boys from Arkham Asylum were always starting riots, so the bad girls decided to get in on the fun too. But they had a more subtle way of reaching out to the populace of Gotham, a more effective way to getting into their heads- music. Harley, Ivy and Catty became The Gotham Grrrls, a loud and aggressive punk band who played catchy songs like "Beat on the Bat", "Anarchy in the USA" and "Lust for Laughs". Soon these songs were earworming their way into the mind of every citizen in Gotham- including crime fighters like Bruce Wayne and Dick Grayson. The plan was going off without a hitch, and those femme fatales were having the time of their lives, but then the day came when they were told Lex Luthor would be their new manager, and their smiles quickly turned to frowns...
Show some love for your favorite singing Sirens with this The Gotham Grrrls t-shirt by Donovan Alex, it's a rockin' good way to make your fellow DC fans smile wherever you go!

The theater was full of people who had gone to see Fritz Lang's classic thriller masterpiece M, but instead they were treated to an odd little film about a very strange man in a moth suit. It started out showing the man in the moth suit, who called himself Monarch, as he rose through the ranks of supervillainy despite his laughable costume. It was later explained that he was dressed like a butterfly, not a moth, and that the suit related to his severe daddy issues- because his father was a superhero who called himself Blue Morpho. Sounds like madness runs in the family!

There's a reason The Simpsons is one of the most highly regarded TV comedies of all time- the writing is comedy gold.
From the ridiculously funny character development to the satirical nature of Springfield, USA to the witty jabs taken at politicians and famous people, people expect an irreverent laugh and the writers deliver.
They love to make the audience cringe with those uncomfortable jokes that make us say "sad but true", because it's better to laugh at the dark side of human civilization than let it turn you into Kirk Van Houten!
Many comic artists put out a new strip weekly, if not daily, so their strip has plenty of opportunities to go viral, but very few strips actually pull in millions of readers and hit the internet jackpot.
But sites like BuzzFeed are helping artists share their stuff with a broader audience, so comic strip lovers don't miss out on all the incredibly relatable and highly entertaining comics being put out by these clever folks.
Being told you talk in your sleep can be somewhat nerve-wracking, since it's typically unclear what you actually said while you were sleeping.
And once we're told about this quirk we can't help but wonder which of our secrets are being exposed by our slumbering minds and overactive mouths, a nagging question that can drive you crazy if you let it.
But filmmaker Adam Rosenberg wasn't content to just wonder what he was saying, he wanted to get to the bottom of his sleepy time mumbling- so he set up a high quality microphone and recorded it all. (NSFW language)
There are plenty of fancy restaurants serving up expensive meals that are delicious and filling, but it seems the more pretentious restaurants have lost sight of the fact that they're supposed to serve good food, not gimmicks.
Head to Quince restaurant in San Francisco and you'll find one of the most ridiculous and pretentious concepts in fine dining ever conceived- frog legs and white truffle croquettes served on an iPad.
A video posted by rosé (@asap.rozzy) on Dec 20, 2016 at 12:43pm PST
The croquettes plate is called A Dog In Search Of Gold, and it's served on an iPad showing a video of dogs hunting for truffles, part of a $220 fixed-price supper that otherwise sounds quite delicious.
The Michelin-starred restaurant also recently served up frog legs on an iPad showing a video of frogs leaping around a pond, just to remind diners where their meal actually came from.
When it comes to hunting down man-cubs you need to find a guy who can get the job done quietly and discreetly, someone who will make sure that man-cub is put down for good. That's why the Man-Cub Hunting & Elimination Committee has elected Shere Khan for president, because if anyone can get rid of that pest Mowgli it's the tiger who can eat him all up in one bite! There have been rumors going around the jungle that Shere Khan is actually just a figurehead, and that he lets slithering creeps do all the dirty work for him, but check the books and see for yourself- Shere Khan was born to be a killer of man-cubs, and his bloody track record speaks for itself...
Help campaign to stop man-cubs from invading the jungle with this The Tiger Khan Do It t-shirt by Prime Premne, it's the stylish way to show support for those critters trying to keep their jungle human free!
While dueling your fellow planeswalkers it's important to supply your units with enough resources to tap, reinforce your units with spells and artifacts whenever possible, and when in doubt summon a Grand Cenobite like the Elesh Norn. For you see summoning orcs and wyverns is a fine way to win a normal battle, but more intense duels call for the summoning of a demon like the Elesh Norn, in order to show off how strong your magic deck is compared to your opponent. So don't forget to add a demon or two while you're gathering cards for your next deck, or you may be forced to start over from scratch...
Take your favorite card game with you wherever you go with this Elesh Norn t-shirt by Chris Bryer, it will earn you plenty of nods from people who just think it's a cool design, but your fellow MtG fans will go wild when they see you wearing it!

There's a strange funereal practice that was outlawed by Chairman Mao back in 1949 but is starting to make a comeback in China- the practice of buying a cadaver bride to be buried with a family's unmarried son.
This "ghost marriage" is thought to prevent the unmarried son from going through the afterlife alone, and as grim as this practice may seem many Chinese people see ghost marriages as no big deal.
Unfortunately, they also don't see anything wrong with paying grave robbers to dig up women for their sons, and this cadaver black market has led to murder for profit, since the freshly dead are far more valuable.
Recently a family in China paid about $3500 for the cadaver of a young girl, but as they were burying the coffin containing the girl and their son they heard noises coming from inside- and discovered the girl was still alive.
