What’s A Weird Thing Your Family Did That You Thought Was Normal Till You Moved Out?

3

It all started with this tweet by podcaster Georgia Hardstark, who asked her Twitter followers what weird thing their family did that they thought were completely normal, until they learned otherwise. "We kept birthday candles in the freezer," Hardstark added.

More than 2,000 tweets answered her questions, including these gems:

Back to the Future, a Children's Picture Book by Kim Smith

2

Great Scott! Someone actually created a children’s book based on the Back To The Future Movie written by Robert Zemeckis & Bob Gale. I’m in heaven and so will anyone else who is proud to have been raised in the 80’s.

I admit it! I am totally biased when it comes to this book. I am a huge, huge Back To The Future fan. When this book came into our office I practically became giddy.

The book is about 40 pages long and goes through essentially the entire Back To The Future Story line. It starts out by introducing us to Marty McFly who is appropriately gliding around Hill Valley on his skateboard. We meet Doc Brown and Marty’s family. Of course we also meet Biff.

Psst, college students - are you stressed out? The University of Utah has the solution that is just in time for final exams. Behold, the "Cry Closet," a safe space where you can cry out the stress of college life in convenient privacy.

Titled "A Safe Place for Stressed Out Students Otherwise known as The Cry Closet," the whole thing is actually an art installation by senior Nemo Miller (@Nemosanartist) who made it as part of an assignment for a woodshop techniques class.

Written in front of the closet are the five rules of using the closet:

Jeff Goldblum Answers The Web's Most Searched Questions About Him

Jeff Goldblum is one of the least afraid actors in Hollywood, and his effortlessly cool demeanor makes me think he must be a descendant of Fonzi and therefore quite magical to hang out with.

But since I'll probably never get to meet the guy, much less hang out with him, I'll have to get to know him by watching this fun Autocomplete Interview video by WIRED instead.

That way I can find out fun facts about Jeff, like the fact that he has two sons and does not in fact have a stutter, and the video also answers one of the most important questions of all time- does Jeff Goldblum song? Why yes, he does song!

The Greatest Songs From The Simpsons

The Simpsons isn't a musical show per se, since not every episode features a musical number, but over the last three decades the show's creators have treated us to some great original songs that really get stuck in your head.

(YouTube Link)

Songs like "Baby on Board", "Who Needs The Kwik-E-Mart?" and "See My Vest" stick with you seemingly for the rest of your life, lying dormant in your brain until you hear a few verses sung or read about them on a list such as this.

(YouTube Link)

And let's face it- as far as earworms go I'd rather have "Baby on Board" bouncing around inside my head than some cheesy modern pop song created using the same algorithms that gave the Bieber-bot sentience.

Ottomatic Zen - Don't Just Drive The Bus, Be The Bus


Ottomatic Zen by Ilcalvelage

Otto figured out the secret to inner happiness long ago, but he's not sharing that secret with anyone because he's not actually aware that he's figured out the secret to inner happiness. In fact, Otto doesn't really know what he knows because he's too busy living in the now, which is probably a good thing for the kids from Springfield Elementary because if his mind starts to wander his bus might start wandering all over the road too!

Add some animated chill to your geeky wardrobe with this Ottomatic Zen t-shirt by Ilcalvelage, it's a high-larious way to show some love for your favorite bus driving buffoon!

The Marshalls

The Marshalls have an ordinary last name but they are far from an ordinary family, but it's not their big bug eyes, unusual fashion sense or lack of conversation that makes them strange- it's the dark secret they have locked away in the basement.

The Marshalls is a stop motion animation short created by Adeena Grubb, with music by Daniel Beja, and what it lacks in depth of story it makes up for with some super creepy vibes!

What Do Dogs See When They Watch TV?

My dog doesn't care much for TV unless there are noisy birds on the screen, but other dogs I've had would sit on the couch with me and watch TV like little humans, paying closer attention to the shows on the screen than I did.

Their canine channel surfing always made me wonder how much they were actually seeing of what was happening on the screen- were they actually watching shows or just following sound and movement?

Hank Green answered this age old question on this episode of SciShow, explaining how a dog's TV watching habits may vary by breed and discussing how a dog's eyes, which are more attuned to flickering yet see less colors, see TV differently than you and me.

I Awoke

Imagine waking up with no recollection of who you are, where you are or how you got to be where you are in life...*shivers* that sounds like an absolute nightmare, especially considering you might have to live your life all over again...

On the other hand, waking up to discover you're a lamp wouldn't be so bad, unless the people who own you have a cat in the house...*shivers* (Comic via Channelate)

Things That Are Bigger On The Inside

The laws of physics forbid an item from being bigger on the inside, so in order to find things that are larger inside than out we must forego standard science and head into the realm of science fiction.

There we can find amazing objects with interior spaces roomy enough for Time Lords, Grouches and families of wizards to chill in, the perfect places for a daydream.  (Illustration by Hello With Cheese)

A Twisted Little Love Story About A Girl Named CINDY

Love is supposed to be a good thing in our lives, a positive force that brings out the best in two people and makes them grow in ways no other force of nature can, but more often than not love just hurts the ones who dare to love.

Some people take the pain in stride, others let it twist them up inside, but Cindy's mom took the pain of love lost and turned it into a curse- which she passed down to her poor little daughter. Can Cindy move past the black cloud her mom cast down upon her head and let the light of love shine down upon her?

CINDY- A Love Story is a twisted animated short with amazing looking art created by Marco Bucci and Bryce Sage, a fairy tale for those who feel like every romantic relationship they ever have is doomed.

Pickle Vs Jag - Where We're Going There's No Mortys Allowed


Pickle Vs Jag by Donovan Alex

Who knew an anthropomorphic pickle, a killer hobo and a horde of rats would make such a great cast for an action TV show? Rick Sanchez, that's who knew, and that's why he decided to turn himself into a pickle, create a really cool robo-suit so he could move around and stuff, since pickles are armless and legless. Rick's fighting for the rights of strange scientists everywhere to make life more interesting by performing weird and totally unnecessary experiments that may or may not f$#k with the integrity of entire dimensions.

Take Your Style To The Limit With These Radical Retro-Themed NeatoShop T-Shirts

Power of Love by Vincent Trinidad

The 80s and 90s were definitely the raddest decades ever, with the awesomest characters, most tubular movies and TV shows, and the absolute greatest toys and video games ever made, which is why my love of all things retro will never die.

If you're a fan of radical retro style then you've gotta head to the NeatoShop and grab a shirt or three with some amazing old school inspired artwork from the top indie artists who love retro as much as we do!

Old Computer Tutorial Video Edit Of Woman Repeatedly Saying "Floppy Diskette"

There's something about the name "floppy diskette" that has always sounded a bit crude, and I couldn't help but crack a smile at the mention even when people shortened it to "floppy".

Does that mean I have a perverted mind?

Perhaps, but no matter how pure your mind is you'll agree that "floppy diskette" is an unfortunate name for a product after hearing this woman repeat it over and over again in this video tutorial edit from back in the good ol' days of computing.

A Surreal Animated Short About A Guy Who's Married To An Anthropomorphic Chicken

Surreal animated shorts are often too bizarre and too obscure for most viewers to sink their teeth into, but Hen, His Wife is easily accessible to all- even if not everyone understands the symbolist subtexts.

Hen, His Wife is a bizarre short created by Pilot animation studio back in 1989 about a guy who ignores his wife, who is an anthropomorphic chicken, but there's a lot more going on beneath the absurdist surface story:

Igor Kovalyov, one of the studio’s founders, directed a tale so densely symbolic that it's tough to interpret. In terms of narrative, the film is about a family couple in which the husband, dressed in prison-like garments, ignores his dutiful wife – an anthropomorphic hen – until a stranger arrives and jolts them from their absurd coexistence. The plot itself, however, makes little sense without interpreting the abundant symbols of impotence, autoeroticism, and sexuality. Kovalyov’s wordless, surreal drama easily captures one’s attention, leaving a lingering unease in its wake, even without Freudian analysis.

This Solar-Powered RV Runs Without Fuel Or Charging Stations

There are lots of people out there who would like to tour the country in an RV but simply can't afford the fuel costs, and as the cost of gas continues to rise this dream of RVing the nation slips further away.

So the German RV company Dethleffs has come up with a great invention to make our RV dreams come true- a solar powered motorhome.

A post shared by stranddeko (@stranddeko) on Aug 29, 2017 at 9:37pm PDT

The "e.home" is covered in solar panels so it can soak up all the solar energy it needs to keep its 107-horsepower electric motor and all the components inside the RV running for as long as you need to make new memories on the road.

And just for fun Dethleffs even included a starlight projection system over the alcove bed, so you can space out in style before bed.

Creative Alternatives To Expensive Cat And Dog Toys And Supplies

Cats and dogs don't care how much we spend on the pet toys and accessories we buy for them, and even if they sneak a peek at the tag they have no idea what they're looking at because they can't read and don't understand how money works.

So those who spend a fortune on their pets are spending that money to make themselves feel good, not their pets, and should probably find a pet charity to donate to instead of throwing away all that money.

(YouTube Link)

HouseholdHacker put together these clever cat and dog "hack" videos for the frugal pet owner who also likes to do a bit of DIY, presenting simple yet smart ideas that work like a charm including:

  • Turn your mismatched socks into cat toys by filling them with paper and tying them off on the top, or a dog toy by putting an empty water bottle inside the sock instead
  • Use a muffin tin to slow down dogs who eat too fast, and cover each bowl with half a tennis ball to give them an added challenge
  • Mix water, Dawn dish soap and white vinegar to make a cheap flea shampoo
  • Add pumpkin to cat food to help with their hairballs

Chess, According To A Four- And Six-Year-Old

Chess is typically thought of as being too strategic, difficult and slow for little kids to handle, especially considering many kids play games on their own smartphone or tablet these days.

But six-year-old Annabelle and four-year-old Eloise clearly didn't get the memo about chess being too slow for kids, so they absolutely adore the game and are quite good at it.

They're not chess prodigy Misha good, but their enthusiasm for chess will give you hope for the future of analog gaming.

How To Cook A Bowl Of Noodles At Your Desk

Workers sometimes find it hard to leave their desks and eat lunch, so they have to come up with clever ways to fix themselves a meal at their workstation without pissing off the boss or burning down the office building.  

But instead of buying a tiny microwave or using warm sink water to make noodles food vlogger Xiao Ye, aka Miss Yeah, came up with the most clever desktop cooking hack I've ever seen, turning Pepsi cans and some rubbing alcohol into a mini stove.

She then cooked up a bowl of bean sauce noodles using one very, very long noodle, some fresh veg she stole from the company fridge and some other ingredients she just happened to have in her desk.

Something tells me she cooks at her desk a lot...

5 Ways To Quit A Bad Habit

Bad habits are often hard to break because they really seem like they bring us some sort of pleasure, and whether physical or mental we start to miss that little habit when it's gone.

Missing the feeling of that cig in-between your fingers, that ritual of lighting, inhaling and snubbing out is a big part of what makes it so hard for smokers to quit, well, that and the highly addictive chemicals added to cigarettes to increase their nicotine levels.

As this comic by Jacob Andrews shows us those chemicals make you want to come back from the dead for a smoke!

Dark Realities That Reality TV Shows Don't Want You To Know About

In my opinion reality TV is one of the worst things to ever happen to television, because it panders to those who like to watch people at their worst and encourages people to act like total jerks while on camera.

But the worst part about the reality TV takeover is the fact that it's ruining people's lives like no fictional show ever could, ruining their reputation to the point where some feel like suicide is the only solution.

And when these shows don't indirectly ruin lives by ruining reputations they literally cost people their lives by emboldening the people on camera to make risky moves, as was the case when a COPS crewmember lost his life when officers opened fire on a suspect with a toy gun:

Nunchaku Dad Is My New Hero

It's cute to watch kids try to bust some sick moves with their first pair of nunchucks, that is, until they smack themselves in the face with 'em, but it's somehow even cuter to watch this dad mess around with nunchakus like a big kid.

He keeps trying to do some fancy move where he kicks the 'chucks up into his hands so he can be ready for battle without bending over, and once he manages to pull off the move he unleashes nunchaku fury like a Ninja Turtle on steroids.

Stars You Forgot Were Cast As Cowboys In Movies And TV Shows

When you think about classic TV and movie cowboys do you think Clint Eastwood, John Wayne and Charles Bronson instead of Bob Dylan, Bob Denver and Sammy Davis Jr.?

Yeah, so does everybody else, but both Bobs and Sammy were in old school westerns too, they're just not as well known for their portrayals of cowpokes as those gritty Western icons.

(Image Link)

Sammy Davis Jr. was absolutely great as the gunslinger Tip Corey in the 1962 episode of The Gunslinger entitled Two Ounces Of Tin, playing a character with personality, depth and true grit.

(Image Link)

Bob Dylan made in appearance in the 1973 film Pat Garrett & Billy The Kid as Alias, a badass stranger who helps Billy escape from three thugs. Dylan also composed the score for the film, which earned him a Grammy nomination.

But of the three, Bob Denver got to play cowboy the longest, since he starred alongside Forrest Tucker in the Sherwood and Elroy Schwartz series Dusty's Trail for 26 episodes back in 1973-74.

RPG Bosses You Always Fight On Your Quest

Story is the main focus of all RPGs, and the characters who star in the story make each RPG different and interesting in their own way, but for some reason video game designers use the same old bosses over and over again.

They still feel the need to include a Pathetically Early Boss who's somehow supposed to help us defeat the next boss who is often a Weirdly Hard Boss That You Aren't Prepared For, so you get spanked and feel low.

Later you end up facing a Filler Repeat Boss who looks strangely like the Weirdly Hard Boss, so your confidence is boosted before you dare to tackle the Unbelievably Hard Optional Boss, who usually sends me looking for a new game to play...looks like it's time for an RPG revolution!

This Short Film Was Not Created Using CGI

Digital artists are doing some amazing stuff with CGI these days, creating characters and scenes that look so realistic you'd be hard pressed to tell the difference between their creations and real video footage.

And because their CGI creations look so real they make for great guessing games, prompting viewers to decide which one is real and which one is digital, but this isn't a guessing game- and believe it or not this video isn't CGI.

Club Palace (Real or CGI?) - NOWNESS from NOWNESS on Vimeo.

This amazing video by Camille Boyer and cinematographer Nik Mirus was created for the Montreal-based agency Caravane using miniatures and practical effects, now that's what I call tricking the audience!

Wonder - She's A Force For Goodness In An Ever Darkening World


Wonder by Karen Hallion

Her powers, her origin story and her very existence fill readers with wonder, and even though she's had to share the spotlight with some super heavy hitters and bat-eared knights who captivate the imagination no hero has made us want to be filled with wonder more than Diana Prince. She's a great role model for young girl and woman alike, and her history isn't filled with dark and morally questionable moments like some other heroes she's in league with. So with any luck this Amazonian powerhouse will continue to wow us for generations to come, as she doles out her special brand of justice and makes the world a safe place for all the dreamers out there who dare to resist tyranny and fight the good fight!

Add some superheroic awesomeness to your geeky wardrobe with this Wonder t-shirt by Karen Hallion, and you'll be making comic fans smile wherever you go!
