Gamer Crest - The Crest Of Champions

Gamer Crest by Cory Freeman Design

Gamers are a proud breed, and when they meet one another in the wild and start to discuss games it immediately becomes clear that these gamers belong to the same clan. So why don't they have a royal crest to call their own? They have enough kingdoms, heroes, villains, creatures and support characters to fill ten planets, and their imagination allows them to build worlds full of wonder at will.

So it seems the gamer's lack of a royal crest is an oversight which has been remedied by talented artist and lover of game Cory Freeman Design and his Gamer Crest t-shirt design. Now gamers can declare their allegiance to gamedom and show their fellow gamers they're part of a royal kingdom where they can unite in board, tabletop and video brotherhood!

Stitchzilla - Ohana Means Family, Kaiju Means Run For Your Life!

Stitchzilla by Harebrained Design

In real life he's small and relatively nice, but in his dreams he's a giant city eating monster! You may think this dream of being a bad guy makes Stitch inherently rotten, but the truth is his creator Jumba put that anger inside him. He was created using genetic material from at least six of the galaxy's deadliest predators, and given heightened strengthened and speed to make him a more efficient killer, so it's only natural that he would dream of becoming the mighty beast he was meant to be. But thanks to a little girl with a huge heart named Lilo we never need to worry about Stitch going full kaiju, because he may be a killer- but he's a lover too!

Add some kaiju awesomeness to your geeky wardrobe with this Stitchzilla t-shirt by Harebrained Design, it's one big and bold design that's sure to get you lots of attention!

Playful Goats Climb All Over Very Patient Rhinos

Most humans won't let another human climb all over them unless the climber is a child or potential mate, but rhinos are apparently far more patient and tolerant than humans.

Rhinos are so tolerant they'll even let a bunch of rambunctious little goats jump and climb all over them, sometimes two or three goats at a time.

(YouTube Link)

This funny footage shot at South Africa's Care for Wild Africa Rhino Sanctuary left me with one question- do rhinos see goats as the massage therapists of the animal kingdom?

The Street Photographer Who Taught Himself Photography While Doing Time

Prisons are instituting job development programs hoping some hands-on training will help ex-cons land a job when they're released.

But these training programs rarely include creative art, which is a shame considering a criminal's unique perspective, so prisoners who want to learn art skills have to educate themselves by reading books.

Photographer Donato Di Camillo grew up on the mean streets of 70s and 80s New York, saw his "first friend die at the age of nine, right by my feet" and ultimately wound up going to prison on Federal charges in 2006.

Donato wanted to learn photography so bad he studied hard while awaiting his release, and when he got out in 2012 he continued his photographic studies, feeling street photography was "something that I felt I needed to do".

Now Donato is free to fully embrace his passion for street photography, posting his pics on his Tumblr and Instagram accounts, and his raw and powerful portraits are some of the best I've seen for quite some time.

RPGs Then And Now

Roleplaying games featured simpler storylines and gameplay elements when they first came out, but like every other video game genre RPGs have evolved into something way more realistica and complex.

This comic by Andy Kluthe and Tristan Cooper of Dorkly walks us through the many ways RPGs have changed since the good old days of single save files and simple dialog choices.

Lilo And Stitch Was Originally Going To Be A Much More Violent Movie

Lilo and Stitch didn't really cause any controversy with audiences, but it sure caused problems for the crew at Disney's Hollywood Studios during the making of the film.

It seems Lilo and Stitch was originally going to be a much more violent film, with lots of sci-fi violence and a star who broke all the rules regarding good guys in animated features for kids.

So the film underwent some radical changes thanks largely to test audiences who felt certain scenes in the film were too violent.

 photo dbd04e8248e32da0d98edb57756412bf_zpsbrua1nic.gif

The scene where Jumba the alien stops sneaking around and goes for a full frontal assault on Stitch, ultimately destroying Lilo's home, was the main scene in need of alteration.

So they started toning down the scene by changing Jumba's laser gun blasting into household destruction via dishware.

 photo 6522d67a324b0e1374e9b45e39efd3a8_zpsdelfwved.gif

The production team didn't agree with the changes made to that scene, but there's one scene they all agreed to alter- the ending scene where Stitch hijacks a 747 to go after Captain Gantu.

 photo 098778d68c6fce2a13b5034952d5fa92_zpsug0u76gk.gif

The film was in production during 9/11, and even though they'd finished animating the scene they knew it had to go, so the 747 was replaced with Jumba's spaceship and the fight moved from the city to the mountains.

An Incredibly Cool Collection Of Pokémon Drawn As People

I'm glad Pokémon are pocket monsters and not pocket people. or else the franchise would be about slavery and human trafficking which is way worse than monsters battling in an arena.

Still, wouldn't it be cool to see what the creatures of the Pokémon universe look like as humanoids?

Amazingly talented illustrator tamtamdi has spent the last few years turning dozens of elusive pocket monsters such as Slowpoke, Gastly and Porygon2 into elusive and magical looking people we'd rather call friend than collect.

Tamtamdi has remained dedicated to the cause of turning Pokémon into Pokémans and Pokewomans, and the occassional Pokéhumanoid or Pokéghost, by drawing over 250 different species of Pokémon so far.

And tamtamdi's mighty character design skills ensure each and every species of Pokémon being reimagined looks completely different than the next.

Pictures Of Kids Taken On Their First And Last Day Of School

Parents always remember their kid's first day of school and the graduation ceremony on the last, but they rarely have the foresight to recreate the first day photo some thirteen years later on their last day of school.

(Image Link)

If the kindergartener was being held by their mom or dad in the first day photo it will naturally be much harder to replicate, but this strong dad powered through the last day photo shoot for the sake of posterity.

(Image Link)

Bored Panda asked people to submit their first versus last day of school pics in honor of kids going back to school, and most of the submissions they received were surprisingly creative.

Some used Photoshop skills to create a time travel paradox so they could stand next to their first day of school selves.

(Image Link)

While others relied on more traditional methods to create the perfect first vs last day pic.

Something tells me people are going to start doing this a whole lot more now, and I'm definitely stealing this idea when my kid starts school!

Creepy Guy Staring At Taylor Swift Gets Photoshopped Straight

Say you're walking down the street one day and you spot a young lady named Taylor Swift walking ahead of you.

Would you try to stop her and get an autograph, snicker and sneer, or start stalking her like prey?

I figured you'd say one of the first two, but if you answered “stalk her like prey” then congratulations!

(Image Link)

You're just like the creepy stalker guy in the paparazzi shot above, and part of the reason Taylor always feels like she's being hunted.

But maybe that shaggy guy was just shadowing Swift while doing some Scooby Doo style investigative work?

(Image Link)

Taylor has been receiving creepy, heavy breathing phone calls in the middle of the night, maybe he was just helping her track down the culprit?

Of course! It was Kanye!

(Image Link)

K.West's love-hate thang with T.Swift is becoming really creepy, but not as creepy as this Scooby style unmasking moment-

The stalker was actually the stalkee all along! You're a tricky one, Taylor Swift!

"Banned" Parody Trailer Reveals The Dangerous Side Of Playing Pokémon GO

Walking around staring at your smartphone all day was boring before Pokémon GO, the game that gives big virtual prizes for trainers who stay tuned in to the app at all times.

The Best Part About Being A Superhero - Or A Cosplayer

It seems like the best part about being a superhero would be the powers/abilities, the pride in knowing you've helped make the world a better place, or the fact that you get to hang out with other supers.

But according to this Supergirl-Batgirl comic by Mike Maihack the best part is something cosplayers already know all about- the kick ass costumes!

No wonder Batman wears his favorite Batsuit to bed...

American Women In The Early 1900s Poked Harassers With Hatpins And Called Them Mashers

There was one gag that would come up often in comedies made in the latter half of the 20th century which I never fully understood- the old lady yelling “masher!” at a man and beating him about the head with her purse.

It was hilarious to see a little granny beating a guy with her purse in such a slapstick manner, but the actual reference was lost on me until I read this article by Laura Donovan about "How Women Responded To Catcalling In The Past".

Laura references a book by Kerry Segrave called "Beware The Masher: Sexual Harassment In American Public Places 1880-1930" in her article, which defines a masher as a man who harasses, catcalls or otherwise makes unwanted sexual advances at women.

"just a plain cad. The first article in a gentleman's code is to show all respect to ladies. The masher ignores this unwritten law. He forces his attentions on women to whom he is a stranger ... A masher is a coward too, for he knows that an unescorted can only express her resentment by ignoring him."

The masher discussion is just as relevant today as it was a hundred years ago, but back then women were forced to take the matter into their own hands- by stabbing mashers with hatpins.

The term masher became synonymous with male harassers after it was used in an article describing an incident in which Leoti Blaker stabbed a masher with her hatpin on a New York City stagecoach:

Shortly after she sat down next to him, he kept inching closer to her even as she scooted away for personal space. When he curled his arm around her back, she stabbed him in the arm with her hatpin, maintaining a calm expression all the while. She did not react as the man screamed in pain, and he exited the stagecoach at the next stop.

Blaker added that a man would be "tarred and feathered for daring to insult a woman by such persistent actions" in Oskaloosa, Iowa, where she spent some of her younger years.

Now that catcalling and street harassment has become a hot button issue once again we should dust off that old chestnut of a word and start screaming "MASHER!" whenever

Cat Guides Lost Tourist Down A Mountain In Switzerland

Tourists who get lost in the mountains while traveling abroad hope to come across a mountain rescue team or, at very least, a local who speaks their language who can help them get back to their lodgings.

But chances are they wouldn't see a cat as a rescuer, that is, until they hear about the cat Redditor sc4s2cg met in Switzerland.

Sc4s2cg claims he went hiking in the mountains near his hostel and got lost, eventually coming across an abandoned town.

According to his map the only official trail back to his hostel was closed, but then a helpful little kitty guide came up to him and showed him another trail down the mountain.

 photo cat-guide-man-mountain-gimmelwald-switzerland-2_zpsjhkvzzrg.gif

People were skeptical of sc4s2cg's story, but then a few of his fellow Redditors came forward claiming to've had a similar enounter with a feline mountain guide in the same region of Switzerland.

Guy Asks Mom To Describe Overwatch Characters Based On Their Looks

Blizzard has made a big impression on the multiplayer community once again with Overwatch, a squad-based game that's every bit as nice to look at as it is to play.

The characters in Overwatch are designed to have lots of visual appeal, and each one has a unique set of abilities and skills that make them stand out in the crowd.

(Image Link)

But, as Redditor karhall discovered, the character designs don't really say much to his uninitiated mother about who each character is inside their "space suit" or what they can do in battle.

karhall asked his mom to give each character a nickname and describe them based on their looks, and her answers were so "mom" and so great he started posting them on his Tumblr site.

Video game developers should note karhall's research and start holding focus groups full of moms who have never played the game, because their thoughts about the characters could help shape the final design.

But if they do these brave developers should expect lots of cute...

You Never Know When Pawn Stars Memes Are Gonna Come Through That Door

(Image Link)

According to Rick Harrison working in a pawn shop means never knowing what's gonna come through that door, and as anyone who has watched Pawn Stars knows people try to sell him some pretty strange stuff.

(Image Link)

But I wonder how much Rick and his fam would pay for these Pawn Stars memes?

He'd definitely lowball the meme creators, and then Rick would have to get the memes appraised and try to keep Chumlee from playing with them too much, but from there it's pure profit!

(Image Link)

It's mind boggling how many memes and dumb jokes have been made based on Rick's Pawn Stars intro monologue, and equally puzzling why these dumb memes keep making me laugh!

The Life And Times Of Iconic People Summed Up In Six Words

(Image Link)

Famous people often have a lot going on in their lives, their days jam packed with really important things to do, but at the end of it all their busy lives are summed up in a paragraph or two.

(Image Link)

Actually, a paragraph is way more than needed to describe the famous lives of many famous folks, because their famously two-dimensional careers can be effectively summarized in just six words.

(Image Link)

Now that's not to say these pop culture icons aren't worthy of a full length bio, but the internet prefers nuggets of information rather than the whole turkey so six words to describe famous folks it is!

Wilderness Expert Coyote Peterson Picks Up A Slug The Size Of A Small Dog

Have you ever seen a picture of someone holding an animal and thought “what the hell kinda critter is that?”

It usually winds up being a cat or a dog or a ferret, or something just as basic, but the big black thing wilderness expert Coyote Peterson is holding in the picture above isn't basic at all.

It's a giant black slug, a giant black sea hare to be exact, and it can weigh up to 30 lbs.

Hunting a sea slug the size of a small dog for his new series "Beyond The Tide" is one thing, but if Coyote starts leash training one of these suckers we'll know he's in need of professional help!

The Pros And Cons Of Procrastination

Procrastination is a really hard habit to break, and for some seems like an inherent trait rather than a habit, but there are pros to being a procrastinator too.

You're generally more relaxed about deadlines, you know the minimum amount of time needed to finish a project, and it all began when you learned how to be a homework ninja and get reports done the day they were due.

So what are the cons? We'll come up with those later... (Barely NSFW due to language)

Moms Proving They're The Funniest Member Of The Family

Everybody's talking about dad jokes these days, making fathers out to be the funniest member of the family.

But mom's got jokes too, guys, she's just isn't as quick to quip as dad, but once she gets going a mom can make her kids wet their pants with laughter.

Many moms have also mastered the art of abstract humor, making their jokes more memorable and therefore more likely to paint a picture that will stick with her kids for the rest of their lives.

Teachers Who Went The Extra Mile For Their Students

(Image Link)

As kids head back to school parents are reminded of all the teachers they've loved and hated in their lifetime, remembering what it was like to sit in their classes and deal with the school day dramedy.

Teachers leave a lasting impression on kids, whether good or bad, but educators who go the extra mile to make sure their students learn their lessons while actually wanting to go to class deserve a medal.

We've all had those stern, strict and downright draining teachers who nitpicked us to death and expected absolute conformity in the classroom, the teachers who made us hate school.

So hearing about the many teachers out there who are driving their students crazy in a good way these days gives us hope for our children's future.

Plus they make school open house nights way more enjoyable for all!

Researchers Find Camera With Working Memory Card At Shipwreck Site

A marine ecology department team from Simon Fraser University in British Columbia, Canada conducted a research dive to study starfish off the coast of Bamfield when students Tella Osler and Beau Doherty came across something interesting.

It was a digital camera covered in algae and other sea life, with two brittle stars and a sea cucumber setting up shop inside the camera.

Professor Isabelle Côté also found a memory card inside the camera, and to fellow Bamfield Marine Sciences Centre researcher Siobhan Gray's surprise the card still worked.

After asking around online, and pinning the man's picture up on a local bulletin board, Côté and Gray discovered the camera belonged to Paul Burgoyne, who had been rescued from a shipwreck by the Coast Guard back in 2012.

Burgoyne was thrilled to have his pictures back, and the research group learned that sea cucumbers and starfish don't mind using our cameras as condos after we're done with them.

Map Shows Countries As Named In Their Own Languages

People tend to forget that Japan isn't called Japan in Japanese (it's called Nihon) or that Germany is actually the Budesrepublik Deutschland to the Germans, but these endonyms are an important part of a country's identity.

An endonym is the name for a place, site or location in the language of the people who live there. These names may be officially designated by the local government or they may simply be widely used.

And yet the average map doesn't include these endonyms, so people are left wondering what a suomen tasavalta or rzeczpospolita polska is when they see it written somewhere.

At Endonym Map you can see what all the countries of the world call themselves in their official or national language, on a large, nice looking map which the site is constantly striving to improve:

The vast majority of names come from the United Nations Group of Experts on Geographic Names and the U.N.'s database of country names. Other sources include the CIA World Fact Book, Wikipedia and various government websites.

One big change I am exploring is the inclusion of minority language endonyms in some fashion. I would love to put all three official languages for Belgium on the map, or both Ireland and Éire for that matter. But with the limited space on a fixed map, there's just not room to do it fairly for all countries. And it bugs me to no end that places like South Africa and India have a dozen or so recognized languages, but there's only room on the map for one. But I am working on it and hopefully will come to a solution soon.

In the meantime, please enjoy the map!

Dudeoir Photography - Back To The Beach Edition

The Dudeoir photo trend has brought us some amazing(ly hairy) moments we'll likely never forget, and a few which were so horrific they made us want to burn out our eyeballs.

But the average dudes who dare to get sexy and take it almost all off for a pin-up style photo shoot are a rare breed indeed, and best photographed while they're feeling frisky.

Hirsute dudeoir superstar Joshua Varozza decided to hit the beach for his latest sexy shoot, channeling his inner mermaid and Baywatch lifeguard for his photographer friend Tami Bears.

And while he may not be as fit or hairless as Hasselhoff was while filming Baywatch Joshua has one thing in common with The Hoff- an unforgettable screen presence.

The Reason Mexican Jumping Beans Jump

Mexican jumping beans are a prank store classic- a packet full of “beans” that move and jump around on their own which pranksters use to startle their victims.

They're generally sold without explanation or list of ingredients, their packages claiming they "work like magic" in order to perpetuate the myth.

But how does this classic prank actually work?

(YouTube Link)

As Simon Whistler of Today I Found Out explained in the video- jumping "beans" are actually a seed pod from the Sebastiania pavoniana shrub which has been implanted with moth larva.

The jumping is actually the moth larva moving inside the seed, which it will do for months until it finally spins a coccoon and undergoes a metamorphosis into an adult Jumping Bean moth.

Some Dogs Are Terrible At Playing Hide And Seek

(Image Link)

There are plenty of dogs out there who enjoy playing chase and be chased, but only the shyest and meekest dogs hide well enough to engage in a game of hide and seek.

 photo a24c2476-8692-46f8-991a-33288bbcc5b7_zpsl1ip1l4h.gif

That doesn't stop dogs from trying to hide every time thunder starts clapping outside or they get yelled at for knocking over the trash yet again.

But try as they might they're just not very good at hiding.

(Image Link)

Dogs are the very best seekers though, so some of their strange hiding habits may be a way of masking their scent so their canine pursuers can't sniff them out.

Either that, or dogs are just total weirdos!

Some Of The Most WTF Moments In Batman Comics

Batman is a lot more than just a cape, a cowl and a scowl- he's a deep and interesting dude who is so multi-faceted his writers virtually never run out of new material.

But for every good story arc or issue there's another which completely misses the mark, making readers wonder “WTF?!”

Like the time Batman dyed his Batsuits different colors so goons wouldn't figure out Robin's secret identity, featuring Batman wearing a rainbow Batsuit while saying the line “they’ll find no gold at the end of this rainbow… only prison.”

And then there was the time Batman agreed to sing Christmas carols with officers from the Gotham PD- and no crimes were committed that night in Gotham, seemingly thanks to the songs sung by Batsy and the boys.

Think Batman singing is weird? Not as weird as the Caped Crusader laughing with the Joker, impregnating Batgirl or wetting himself during a mission.

Director Creates The Perfect "Burger Drop" Without Using CGI

Fast food restaurants love to employ the burger drop in commercials nowadays, showing us each layer of the burger and how fresh and bouncy it is to entice us into heading for the drive-thru.

It may surprise you to know the burger used in the drop is often CGI, modeled and animated for the perfect mouth-watering look, but not all ad directors agree with using CGI in a burger commercial.

In fact, one practical effects crazy photographer/director named Steve Giralt wanted a real burger drop so bad he built an entire machine to make it happen.

He calls it the “Precision Arduino Timing Relay Imaging Controller”, or P.A.T.R.I.C. For short, and it not only makes the burger drop a breeze- it kicks buns at making ketchup and mustard collide in mid-air.

Average Rob Hangs Out With Celebrities So We Don't Have To

Aren't celebrities the worst? They seem all cool when they're in movies and TV shows and in concert and junk, but then you actually meet them and it's like eeeeewww! Gross!

You know who else thinks celebs are, like, the lamest people to be around?

AverageRob, now he knows what a drag it can be to hang with the rich and famous, especially when they're constantly makng messes he has to clean up!

AverageRob turns average photos of celebrities into AverageRobs, using the magic of Photoshop to insert himself into their staged definitely not staged snapshots.

And since celebrity photos can't be twice as fake the AverageRobs effect actually makes them twice as genuine and four times as real.

But don't do the math on that, math makes for sore brains.
