This Is the Most INSANE 20 Seconds of Tetris You’ll EVER See

Apr 19, 2015 By Scott Neumyer 0

If you’ve ever played Tetris then you’ll probably understand just how absolutely insane this video is.

In less than 20 seconds, Japanese player “Keroco” races to finish 40 lines. Yes, that’s 40 lines in 19.68 seconds. According to MentalFloss.com, that’s the first time anyone has ever broken the 20-second barrier.

Hearing about the feat is one thing, but just wait until you watch it. I’ve never seen anything like it in my life.

30 Nostalgic Snack Foods You Will Probably Never Eat Again

Apr 17, 2015 By Abby Heugel 0

There are approximately 1.3 gazillion different snack foods that have come and gone throughout the years, but there are certain ones that everyone remembers and adores. When they’re taken away, it’s like losing a good friend that you hope will eventually come back around.

Some snack foods have returned. Things like Pudding Pops and Crispy M&Ms have made valiant comebacks thanks to a clamoring from fans. But others have retired into obscurity, never to be heard from again.

Do you remember these classic but forever gone treats?

Reese’s Elvis Cups

The only thing better than peanut butter and chocolate is peanut butter and banana, which is why it’s a crime that Reese’s launched Elvis Cups in 2007 to honor Elvis Presley’s love of peanut butter and banana sandwiches, and then had them leave the building a few years later.

Everyone knows that animals are capable of receiving love and affection, and that there are countless stories of them being rescued from shelters or dire situations by compassionate humans.

40 Unnecessarily Gendered Products to Remind You Women ONLY Like Pink

Apr 14, 2015 By Megan Berman 0

Anyone who says that sexism doesn’t exist is not only wrong, but they’re also willfully ignorant. Companies eke as much money out of consumers as they possibly can by marketing the same product (at a higher price point, naturally) to women, by both reinforcing and insulting gender stereotypes. A two-for-one deal!

But we’ve always thought that laughter is the best medicine. And so, inspired by the brilliant Unnecessarily Gendered Products Tumblr, for your viewing pleasure, here are 40 of the most ridiculous, stupid, and otherwise unnecessarily gendered products on the market.

15 Creative Ways to Use Leftover Coffee That Will Surprise You

Apr 13, 2015 By Abby Heugel 0

You can tell people that you don’t drink coffee or that you club baby seals and the reaction will most often be the same — one of horrific disbelief. But, it’s true (about the coffee, not the seals). Not everyone enjoys the java jolt or taste of pressed bean water. However, on average, Americans spend almost $1,100 per year on coffee.

And you just know that they’re not drinking every drop of it.

Whether you run out of time before work to finish the pot that you brewed or simply forgot that mug of joe left on the counter, all that wasted coffee adds up. But you don’t have to feel guilty. Instead of pouring that precious leftover coffee down the drain, you can use it in your cooking, around your house, and in the garden.

Halt Headaches

A clinical trial in Illinois found that caffeine, which reduces the swelling of blood vessels, can reduce both the intensity and frequency of headaches. Subjects in one group were given caffeine alone, and 58% reported complete relief. Subjects in the other group were given caffeine in combination with ibuprofen, and 70% saw symptoms disappear.

Even if you don’t already drink coffee, those statistics are enough to make you want to start.

25 of the Most Breathtaking and Dangerous Flowers in the World

Apr 9, 2015 By Abby Heugel 0

No matter how hard humans may try, they will never be able to match the beauty, mystery, and wonder that nature can provide. These 25 flowers prove that looks can be deceiving. Some are full of beauty but also poisonous, while others don’t look like flowers at all.

A monkey? An alien? You never know what you will find…

Bird of Paradise

Also known as the crane flower, this gem is the official flower of Los Angeles, which is odd, seeing as I thought it was the rose given out on The Bachelor. The Bird of Paradise is native to South Africa but common in floral arrangements, and is the go-to flower for ninth anniversary celebrations.
