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.
On Saturday, Humans of New York shared the story of a girl named Beyoncé. What followed is the greatest comment section in the history of the internet, full of non-famous people commiserating about having famous names. It’s as fascinating as it is funny…
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.
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.
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.
One must coordinate the hair bow, homemade earrings, and shirt to complete the ensemble.
We all have those pictures we hope no one ever finds. You know, the ones that show us as kids with quite possibly the worst haircuts ever (even for the ’80s and ’90s when most of these travesties were not only tolerated, but encouraged).
Of course we were safe for years, falsely secure in the knowledge they were tucked away in an album somewhere. Then came digital photos and the terrifying moment you get a notification that someone tagged you in a “Throwback Thursday” picture on Facebook and then, there you are in all your mullet and spiral perm glory.
These 30 kids can feel my pain — and probably resent their parents for letting these haircuts happen.
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.
Here comes Peter Cottontail, hopping down the bunny trail…setting innocent children up for the scariest day of their lives.
Okay, okay…That might be a slight exaggeration, but one look at these Easter Bunnies will leave you wondering just what the heck was going on and just how much chocolate needed to be used to smooth things over with these kiddos.
It’s been said that bacon is the duct tape of food. Wrap it around just about anything, and immediately all problems are solved. In fact, it’s estimated that each year more than 1.7 billion pounds of bacon are consumed in food service — and that’s not counting home cooks sizzling up the pork for their BLTs. (Do we even need the L and T at this point?)
So we know you eat the stuff. But did you know that there are even action figures and ways to literally love bacon “to death” available for your purchasing pleasure? Here are 35 ways to get your bacon fix without clogging your arteries.
The future of sleep is here, and apparently it smells like cured meat.
