If your bucket is too big for the Ice Bucket Challenge, it will go hilariously wrong. Like this…

You might be sick of seeing people dump water on their heads.

You probably aren’t sick of seeing people donate money to a good cause.

And you definitely aren’t sick of seeing people screw up the Ice Bucket Challenge…

Missionaries like to save mortals from the gutter, but it’s not usually like this. Adorable…

August 29, 2014 | By Abraham | No comments

Missionaries are in the business of bringing souls up from the depths. They find those who are lost, stuck beyond hope — those who have hit bottom — and they bring hope and salvation.

So when a brood of ducklings all fell into a storm drain as they were following their mother, it’s a good thing this mormon missionary was nearby. He saw an opportunity to fulfill his calling, and he answered…

We always hear about the bad guys in the Middle East. Take a moment and read about some of the good guys. Genuinely incredible heroes…

White Helmets - 03

As the Syrian Civil War continues the death count rises in terrible numbers every day. Since the conflict began in 2011, over 200,000 people have died.

But amid the terror, there is a small army of unarmed and politically impartial volunteers bringing hope to as many as they can. They are the Syrian Civil Defence, called the White Helmets, and they do what one journalist who spent time with them called the most dangerous job in the most dangerous city.

They immediately rush into any scene of bombing or battle against civilians to find and rescue anyone they can.

Warning sign threatens a *very* public punishment for public urination. Hilarious…

August 29, 2014 | By Joey White | No comments

The Marcincák Hotel in the Czech town of Mikulov is very serious about people not peeing in public on their property. Obviously, any organization dealing with this annoyance would start out by erecting a sign saying not to do it.

So that’s exactly what the Marcincák did, too…

But that wasn’t enough for them. They took it a step further and included another sign below with a threat to perpetrators. Not only are they on camera… They’re on camera for a very specific and embarrassing purpose.

No word on whether this has been effective or whether the establishment follows through on their threat.

If they do, their YouTube channel is definitely unlike any other hotel’s.

Before-and-after pics reveal the soul-crushing disappointment…of Kindergarten

August 29, 2014 | By Abraham | 7 comments

It’s the time of year when we all see and post pics on Facebook of kids going back to school. Or in some cases going to school for the very first time. Exciting, right?

Yes…in the morning, at least. What about after that first day, though? How do kids feel then?

Parents don’t usually post those pics to Facebook. Nobody wants to see…complete and utter brokenness.

Photographer’s “reverse nudes” are hilarious…and completely SFW

August 29, 2014 | By Abraham | No comments

For his brand-new and ongoing series “Nude Portraits,” photographer Trevor Christensen flips the notion of “artistic nude” on its head. Because, in fact, none of his subjects are naked. He is. Behind the camera.

Nude Portraits - 01

Although it seems entirely likely that this series began on a lark, perhaps with some drinks involved, Christensen has by now put a more high-minded spin on it…

Despite my best efforts, subjects often feel a sense of vulnerability during the process [of getting their photo taken]. No matter the scenario, this power imbalance seems like an almost inescapable part of the experience….

Nude Portraits is about leveling the playing field in an unorthodox way. Instead of focusing on bringing the subject to a place of ease, where I am, this project brings me to a place of vulnerability.

Christensen began his silly yet intriguing series on Monday, and since then has captured the reactions of four subjects to his state of undress.

And don’t worry, it’s funny not creepy, because none of the photos were snapped as a surprise. Everyone knew what they were getting into, and yet still their reactions are worth documenting.

For laughs, if nothing else.
