These classic books might be even more famous if they’d been titled honestly

July 17, 2014 | No comments

None of these books need help from the marketing department. They’re all classics and most of them have stood the test of time, still selling decades and centuries beyond their release date. But that’s not to say they couldn’t have done better. Maybe all they needed was a clearer title…

Petite powerhouse of a woman shocks crowd, announcers, and the whole internet with her athleticism

July 17, 2014 | 4 comments

At 5-feet-tall and only 100 pounds, Katy Catanzaro was not expected to complete the America Ninja Warrior course in Dallas. The intense obstacle course had never been conquered by a woman, but that didn’t hinder Katy’s confidence.

With the support of the crowd, the praises of the announcers, and upper body strength that will blow you away, she worked her way through the challenges with perfect concentration.

You will see soon, if you haven’t already, why this video has gotten 3 million views in just two days and will continue to surge…

Blue Jays shortstop Munenori Kawasaki has mastered the art of second-language interviewing. He may not speak English as well as the rest of us, but he’s way funnier and more confident, especially when he’s talking about how to avoid craps…I mean, cramps…

Like most young kids, Telmo Pieper spent much of his childhood drawing rudimentary sketches of various animals and objects. Unlike most of us, Pieper actually grew up to be an artist.

For his series called “Kiddie Arts,” Pieper pulled out his old childhood sketches from when he was 4 years old and recreated them as realistic drawings resulting in these fantastically bizarre images…

Do you like your state’s “Game of Thrones” sigil? [55 pics]

July 16, 2014 | 5 comments

Using a Game of Thrones sigil creator, a redditor created this series of sigils (which are basically coats of arms) for every state and territory of the United States.

Each sigil incorporates themes from the state’s flag as the base for its design. The text at the bottom is derived from the state’s motto, slogan, or nickname, depending on what fit best within the parameters of the generator. (He had to misspell “Massachusetts” to get it to fit.)

Find your state or territory below and remember, if you aren’t happy with the results, you can always create your own
