Internet Confirms That Kids Say The Most Hilariously Screwed-Up Things

Internet Confirms That Kids Say The Most Hilariously Screwed-Up Things

Blog
Ah, the internet. This vast digital landscape holds certain truths to be self-evident. Like the fact that 90 percent of humanity at large does, in fact, suck. And that high school students will continue citing Wikipedia as a legitimate source of information from now until the end of days. Oh, and that the verbal garbage that comes out of kids' faces is pure social media gold. googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('VN_PG_DCBP_ATF'); }); Because oversharing is a thing, I bring to you a collection of lovely exchanges between parents and the little ones who trouble them so deeply. 1. This kid really hates her dad. iStock (via @XplodingUnicorn) googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('VN_PG_DCBM_BTF'); })...
Taxidermy Is Already Creepy Enough Without These 30 Bizarre Creations

Taxidermy Is Already Creepy Enough Without These 30 Bizarre Creations

Blog
googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('VN_PG_DTBT_ATF'); }); I don't like taxidermy one bit -- it really freaks me out. Just knowing that the stuffed creatures were once living, breathing animals is very unsettling to me. No matter how accurately portrayed they are, they are still pretty disturbing. It makes me imagine the same thing happening to me when I die, and that's a horrifying mental image. But the critters you're about to see are on an entirely different level -- and not in a good way. They'll make you wonder if the people who made them have ever seen real animals at all. Prepare yourselves. This isn't going to be pretty. 1. This is just plain terrifying. 2. Wait -- just kidding. THIS is. 3. Imagine waking up to thi...

This Bizarre Medical Condition Forces Some People To Walk On All Fours

Blog
Congenital genu recurvatum, or knee hyperextension, is a rare condition that occurs once in every 100,000 live births. People with this condition, which appears more often in women, are born with a deformity in their knee joints. Their kneecaps are dislocated to the side, causing them to bend backwards to varying degrees. While some are still able to walk upright, others are forced to use their hands as an extra pair of feet. The first documented accounts of the deformity go back to the early 1800s. In 1886, a girl named Ella Harper was featured in a circus and called "The Camel Girl" because she walked on all fours. Wikipedia The condition has been associated with injur...

A UFO Spotted In This Video Might Explain Last Week’s SpaceX Rocket Explosion

Blog
Last week, the world was shocked when a rocket from Elon Musk's famed private space flight company SpaceX exploded on the launch pad at Cape Canaveral during a test. The explosion (which was technically a fast-moving fire, according to Musk) also destroyed the rocket's most precious cargo, Facebook's first satellite. googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('VN_PG_DCBP_ATF'); }); While the exact cause of the explosion is still being investigated, hawk-eyed conspiracy theorists have quite a novel explanation. They think it was the work of a UFO. Over the weekend, while reviewing footage of the explosion, a strange object was seen hovering near the rocket.

This Law Enforcement Training Video Covers A Very Bizarre Kind Of Incident

Blog
googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('VN_PG_DTAT_ATF'); }); Back in the 1980s and 1990s, America was dealing with what is now referred to as the "Satanic Panic." That is, fear of the occult and rituals happening in everyday, suburban America. While today, this panic might seem a little bizarre, back then, millions of people took it incredibly seriously. The Satanic Panic actually formed a thriving industry for a time with dozens of books, videos, and TV specials on the topic being produced every year. The following 1994 film entitled "Law Enforcement Guide to Satanic Cults" was one of those videos... In it, so-called "occult experts" explain to police what they should look for to track down and stop Satanic crime...
23 Absolutely Useless Items That’ll Make You Scratch Your Head

23 Absolutely Useless Items That’ll Make You Scratch Your Head

Blog
Listen. I know a thing or two when it comes to being useless. Whether I'm staring blankly at a football game while my dad tries to explain what the hell is going on, trying and failing to help my boyfriend build our IKEA furniture, or really missing the mark when it comes to doing anything on weekends that doesn't involve sweatpants and not brushing my hair, I'm a pro when it comes to uselessness. But the people behind these monstrosities are far more skilled than I am. You see, when it comes to all form and no function, these folks have it down to a science. Here are 23 of the most useless items ever created because who needs faith in their fellow man, anyway? 1. This sign that would've saved Shel Silverstein a lot of time...

This Footage Of A Soviet Grocery Store Right Before The Fall Will Make You Hungry

Blog
googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('VN_PG_DTBT_ATF'); }); It's no secret that life in the Soviet Union was tough. Food shortages and an oppressive regime made for uneasy conditions, to say the least. However, toward the end of the Soviet Union's reign, there was a slight thawing in relations with the West. That thawing (some might argue) led directly to the downfall of the entire Soviet way of life. While there are some things about the system that are truly missed by those who grew up under it, many facets of it are better off forgotten.Like the average Soviet grocery store, for example. It's hard to imagine a poorly stocked grocery store with more empty shelves than cans of food, but that's what people used to live with. Luck...
These Bugs Might Look Weird, But That’s Just Because They’re Living Jewelry

These Bugs Might Look Weird, But That’s Just Because They’re Living Jewelry

Blog
I've always thought bug jewelry was cute. As a kid, wearing things like ladybug stud earrings was always fun, but there's no way I'd wear bug jewelry if the insects in question were actually real. Up until now, I assumed that most people tended to agree, but that's definitely not the case...at least not in Mexico, anyway. googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('VN_PG_DCBP_ATF'); }); There's a huge craze there for really unusual broaches that are made out of beetles. Makech beetles come from Central and South America, where they are found under logs and caught by men known as los maquecheros.
