Look around the internet for a few minutes and you’ll see there’s a hack for everything, so why shouldn’t there be one for how to make your own baby shower gift bags out of previously used birthday gift bags?
That seems reasonable, doesn’t it? And definitely very practical.
When a Pennsylvania convenience store clerk was confronted by a masked robber a few days ago, she refused to comply with the thief’s demands. Instead, she grabbed the closest “weapon” she could find and calmly but authoritatively sent the would-be robber away empty-handed…
In true Pennsylvanian fashion, the store employee drolly explained her actions…
I just got mad. I have better things to do with my night than that.
If you’ve only ever seen marble on a countertop or the column of a government building, it may surprise you to see how it’s quarried from the ground. It doesn’t even look like the beautiful stone needs to be polished before it’s brought into your kitchen.
This video is an excerpt from the documentary Il Capo, or The Chief, a film by Italian artist and filmmaker Yuri Ancarani that follows a quarry boss guiding his employees through the process of extracting the marble. The work is done using a silent language, with simple gestures and signs communicating what needs to be done.
As you walk toward this piece by painter Brian Weavers, you will see it moving, like you’re looking through a camera and the camera is moving back and forth. Not until you’re all the way up to the painting and you step to the side will you see why it looks so trippy…
After amassing over 12.5 million YouTube views between those first two videos, the incredible vocalist is back with new impressions of singers and actresses and a new tune to sing them to — Cee Lo Green’s hit “Forget You”…
Fair warning: This video does not answer the most important question that it raises, namely — Why?
But this SUV has proven one thing: If you take your time and you’re very patient and you remain on a smooth surface and no one is around to walk up and ask you What the hell are you doing?…you can take a portable toilet home with you.
Over the last decade, banjo player Kurt Quinn has perfected his invention — the bandrum. It’s a relatively simple addition to any banjo that creates built-in percussion. Of course, he’s turned to Kickstarter to fund the first run of his instrument, since currently there is only a single prototype. But the best part is, to build 100 bandrums, all he needs to raise is…$28.
As you can imagine, drummers everywhere are at risk. As one commenter on Quinn’s Kickstarter page notes,
[T]housands of drummers will go unemployed within the next few years.
Your next Kickstarter campaign should be course teaching drummers to tune banjos, so they will have something to do.
I think I speak for all the backers when I say, I’ve been looking for something like this for years! My band has a particularly smug drummer that I’m looking forward to replacing. Your days are numbered Todd!
I think you’ll agree that it is truly…different. You’ve never seen or heard anything quite like it…
If the pictures of “parenting” featured on many stock image sites are to be believed, having kids is all bright smiles, bright kitchens, and bright clothes. But, as anyone who has kids (or anyone who has ever even seen a kid) can attest…this is all a lie.
Over at the site It’s Like They Know Us, moms with a sarcastic flair can submit their favorite, most ridiculous stock image of motherhood accompanied by an acerbic caption. The contrast between the pseudo-serenity in the imagery and the biting mockery in the commentary is perfect.
