People spend millions of dollars on beauty and cleaning products when, to be honest, a lot of things can be made at home. Yes, it might take a little bit of work, but it can also only take two ingredients. Two. That’s it. In fact, you probably have most of these things in your house already.

Have you ever played Cards Against Humanity?
For the uninitiated, it’s self-described as “a party game for horrible people. It’s as despicable and awkward as you and your friends.”
In other words, not always family-friendly, unless your family puts the “fun” in “dysfunctional.” The gist is that in each round, one player asks a question from a black card, and everyone else answers with their funniest white card. The game is available as a free download that players can print to create their own cards, and also available to purchase in published hardcopy.
Regardless of the way they go about it, sometimes the rounds are stranger than fiction, to say the least.
There will be time for questions at the end.
It’s tough to give the strange people you meet on public transportation the benefit of the doubt.
Between the weird, smelly sandwiches they insist on eating to their utter disregard for your personal space, some of the strangest people you meet will be on the train. But one viral Facebook post might make you think twice about judging fellow passengers.
When 6’5″ tall bald man entered the sky train in Vancouver shouting, cursing and generally scaring everyone around, it was a 70-year-old woman who swooped in to ease the situation.
In a miraculous display of humanity, the woman reached for the man’s hand and held it, according to a Facebook post written by an observer.
“While everyone was scared, this one seventy year old woman reached out her hand, tightly gripping his hand until he calmed down, sat down silently, with eventual tears in his eyes,” witness Ehab Taha wrote.
Sometimes these kind of situations just need a mother’s touch, and the woman gave that to the man quite literally.
“I spoke to the woman after this incident and she simply said, ‘I’m a mother and he needed someone to touch,'” Taha wrote.
Taha’s takeaway from the event is one we could all use to remember in our most stressful commuting moments.
“Don’t fear or judge the stranger on the bus: life does not provide equal welfare for all its residents.”
Hollywood writers never fail to amaze and entice us with characters that draw us in due to compelling personalities and storylines that are flawlessly depicted by the actors and actresses cast. But there are also times that the stories seem to write themselves, and those are the times that characters are based on real life.
Whether it’s a famous face from history or someone who had an amazing true story, these roles often lead to Academy Awards the for the people who play them on screen. Here are some of the most notable times they heard, “And the Oscar goes to…”

There’s no denying that animals are awesome. They sleep wherever and whenever they want. They go with their gut even if it results in questionable decisions. And they basically live to eat. These should be goals, people! Goals!
And even though they don’t walk around with a phone snapping selfies, the mere humans who share their oxygen do, and sometimes they capture awesomely awkward moments.
A little privacy, please?
Growing up with siblings is never just smooth sailing. Of course you always have someone to hang out with when there’s no one else around, you can both complain about your parents, and you’re guaranteed an extra gift from them on the holiday, but they’re still a pain in the butt.
You fight. You get annoyed. You do things that you might not exactly be proud of — okay, maybe you secretly are, like the people on Whisper and Reddit who shared the funniest thing they did to a sibling growing up.
This kid is the audience member comedians dream of. As dumb as her dad’s joke is, you just can’t help but laugh along…
These days it seems like $1 really doesn’t get you much. Maybe a pack of gum or a scratch-off lottery ticket you hope will net you at least $2. Profit!
But the people at BuzzFeed asked their community what kind of food $1 can buy in their country for the equivalent of $1 in America currency. After all, it always comes back to food, and you know if you had extra money you would totally buy the name brand cereal even when it wasn’t on sale.
But if you have an extra dollar, check out what grub you could get around the world. Take it with a grain of salt — some of the choices are kind of weird — but the differences are pretty staggering.
