16 Celebrity ‘Collectibles’ People Actually Bought On eBay. Humans Are Frickin’ Weird…

Apr 8, 2015 By Abby Heugel 0

What do Justin Bieber’s hair, Captain Kirk’s kidney stone, and a famous author’s toilet all have in common? Inexplicably enough, they’ve all been auctioned off on eBay for hundreds of thousands of dollars.

This proves that some people will do anything to get closer to their favorite celebrities, and also that some people have way too much money on their hands.

Scarlett Johansson’s Tissue

While most of us would pay someone to throw away gross tissues that we find, someone actually paid $5,300 for one that Scarlett Johansson blew her perfect little nose into on The Tonight Show. She put the snot-laden tissue in a bag, signed it and, making the best out of a drippy situation, donated the money to USA Harvest, the charity of her choice.

Apr 8, 2015 By Megan Berman 0

Meet John Bramblitt.

After suffering from epilepsy from age 11, John, who loved art, lost his sight completely at 30, which left him in a deep depression, he told My Modern Met:

All of the hopes and dreams that I had for my life; all of the plans for what I would do after I graduated school were gone. I was not only depressed, but in mourning. The life that I had, along with the future that I was planning, was dead and gone. I felt like I had no potential; that basically I was a zero.

27 Awesomely Excessive Tools That Should Get All Up in Your Grill This Summer

Apr 7, 2015 By Abby Heugel 0

The ancient cave men made due with a simple open flame, rocks, and sticks when it came to cooking up something to eat. Today we have hot dog rollers, condiment guns, and Star Wars Light Saber BBQ Tongs.

Are these grilling accessories necessary? Of course not. In fact, while some are really useful, you don’t need most of them. But are they ridiculous and a little bit fun? As these 25 grilling accessories prove, yes, of course they are.

Motorized Grill Brush with Steam Cleaning Power

This begs the question, “What in the world are you grilling that it requires a motorized steam cleaning brush that runs on 4 C batteries?”

Now,I understand that it can be a pain to clean a grill, but this seems either extreme or extremely convenient for lazy people. I’m still torn on which.

30 Spicy Products That Prove Sriracha is the New Black

Apr 3, 2015 By Abby Heugel 0

Most people know Sriracha as a spicy condiment made from distilled vinegar, sun-ripened chili peppers, garlic, salt, and sugar that boasts a heat rating of 2,000 Scoville units, making it less than half as hot as a jalapeño pepper but still 100 percent delicious.

And for the record, Sriracha is the sauce, but Huy Fong is the brand name and anything else is just an imitation.

The cult following the sauce has gained over the past several years has helped build an entire industry around the stuff. Don’t believe me? Check out these 30 spicy products.

Nailed It!

Have you ever thought, “I would love to show my Sriracha love on all 10 of my fingers without smothering them in the sauce for all the world to see?” If so, please seek counseling, but then get yourself some nail decals.

Have you ever thought, “I love this magazine. I wish they made yogurt!” or “You know what sounds great? Disposable underwear made by a company that also makes cheap lighters!” Probably not, but at some point in time these 25 companies thought they had a home run with their products when, in reality, they struck out. Really struck out.

Heinz EZ Squirt Ketchup

Proof that pretty colors don’t make everything better — especially disgusting purple or green ketchup that only kids in the early 2000s liked simply because it looked kind of gross. Unfortunately for Heinz, kids weren’t the ones buying the product and their parents were smart enough to avoid the gimmick.
