In The Wizard of Oz, one of the pivotal moments is when Dorothy suddenly steps out of the shadows of black and white into a colorful land. It was literally a whole new world for her, and for all the viewers.
The same can be said for old photos. We see them in black and white, and it’s easy to forget that life back then was experienced in the same vibrant colours that surround us today.
But thanks to the people of Reddit, specifically the r/Colorization subreddit, we no longer have to wonder what it might look like. The principal contributors are a mix of professional and amateur colorizers and restorers that bring historic photos to life through color, and while we can’t be sure that those hues are exactly as they were at that time, it’s close enough to give us a solid idea.
There are certain things that are sacred — family, friends and, of course, pizza. So when a grave offense is committed against the cheesy deliciousness that is sliced into perfect love triangles, the world must be made aware.
That was the thought behind the epic Twitter tale from user @sad_tree, who had the misfortune to witness this latest crime while working at Philadelphia Style Pizza and Subs.
A customer named Smith would come in, order two pizzas, and well, that’s where the tale picks up..
Have you ever thought, “I wonder what would happen if my favorite celebrities were morphed into one single person?”
Instagram user Gesichtermix did, and decided to use Photoshop to perfectly blend the faces of famous people and answer that very question.
So if you’ve ever wondered what stunning (and sometimes disturbing) people would result from the morphing of stars like Justin Timberlake and Justin Bieber or Sandra Bullock and Jessica Alba, wonder no more.
Do you swipe right? Swipe left? Have no clue what I’m talking about? Tinder is the dating app that “empowers users around the world to create new connections that otherwise might never have been possible.”
You can anonymously scope out pictures and profiles, send a message, and if both parties swipe right, you can chat and live happily ever after or whatever might come next.
Needless to say, with over 1.4 billion swipes and 26 million matches per day, over 9 billion matches since 2012, things can get repetitive and boring. So how do you set yourself apart from the crowd?

Are you basic, bro? The term “basic” has recently come to mean, well, rather stereotypical and bland. But what isn’t stereotypical and bland is the hilarious Instagram account Bros Being Basic, which shows men spoofing the clichéd photos that women are often guilty of posting on the photo sharing app.
The account, founded in 2014 by Atlanta-based blogger Ashley Hesseltine and a group of her male friends, is described as: “Brosé. Pizza. Repeat. Blessed to be basic.”
It has more than 284,000 followers who see the “basic bros” posting gym selfies, getting their lattes, rocking facial masks with their tiny dogs and overusing hashtags. Ready to hang with the bros?
For every action, there is an equal and opposite overreaction by people on the Internet. I mean, people found a red coffee cup offensive and the Internet blew up this year. But it’s not just a cup that got virtually skewered. Oh no. There is plenty of media coverage to go around.
As such, the Washington Post put together a subjective ranking of 15 figures that incited the Internet’s outrage in 2015.
The former interim CEO of Reddit, the “front page of the Internet,” closed three subreddits, or forums, for violating the site’s anti-harassment policies, something that rarely happens. It wasn’t all her decision, and a lot of users actually agreed with the decision, but IT’S THE INTERNET so thousands of others saw her as evil and demanded her resignation.
We all know that Amazon is a great place to get everything from clothes and books to food and a bunch of ridiculous products you didn’t need but bought because you had to spend $3 more to qualify for free shipping.
One of the ways to decide which items to buy is to read the reviews and trust a bunch of Internet strangers to guide you in the right purchasing direction. It’s iffy on a good day, but sometimes you come across certain gems that simply just make your day…
It’s the first week of the new year, so of course we have our first viral story about someone trolling a jerk on the Internet.
Tora Shae, who goes by BlackMajiik on Twitter, recalls how she humorously vented her frustrations at a coworker who she claims ignorantly refused to learn her name. Why? Well, he’s white and she’s black and he figured that all “hood black girl names sound the same.”
Tora, who had just sat next to her co-worker for the first time after getting a promotion, played it cool while figuring out how she could exact her revenge.
Is it petty? Yup.
Is there a bunch of language that you should be warned about? Yup.
But you have to admit that Evan, Sam, or whatever white name the dude had kind of had it coming…
