Girl Posted Sexy Selfie To Show Off Her Dress, But The Internet Saw So Much More

Posted: 20 Jan 2017 03:59 AM PST

People post sexy selfies online hoping they'll get the attention and likes they need to bolster their self esteem, and because the poser is the focus of the selfie they often forget to check what's behind them in the shot.

When Alyssa posted the sexy selfie above she was hoping people would tell her how pretty she looked in her fancy dress, but she hadn't considered how much her dirty bedroom would distract from the dress.

Soon Alyssa's Tweet went viral as people played their own version of I Spy with her selfie, analyzing the stuff littering her filthy floor and discovering marshmallows are an essential part of her diet.

Unfortunately, the marshmallows were also feeding an uninvited houseguest who had seen the mess and assumed Alyssa's room was a rat friendly hotel.

Why The Three Laws of Robotics Have to be Arranged the Way They Are

Posted: 19 Jan 2017 11:59 PM PST

Isaac Asimov's three rules of robotics are at the core of all of his robot stories and fans of not only his works, but countless other authors who have touched on a future filled with robots are familiar with the results. But simply re-arranging the order of the stories makes for an entirely different set of scenarios -most of which are terrible. XKCD explores these other outcomes in this simple-but-effective comic.

We're Not Worthy of This Giant Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Posted: 19 Jan 2017 09:59 PM PST

The problem with grilled cheese is that it limits you to the size of the bread and sure there are some relatively large sour doughs out there, but a classic grilled cheese is all about the white bread. Of course, if you make your own bread then the size is the limit.

(Video Link)

The geniuses over at HellthyJunkFood did precisely that and the finished project, which took 20 slices of cheese to finish, is a true 3,650 calorie, comfort food masterpiece. 

You can find the recipe here.

Mother Shares Daily Pics Of Her Skin Cancer Treatment To Warn Against Tanning

Posted: 19 Jan 2017 07:59 PM PST

Everybody knows the skin cancer risks associated with tanning in the sun or in a tanning bed, and yet people who can't stand being pale are willing to take that risk so their skin stays nicely bronzed.

These people also tend to believe tanning beds are safer than tanning in the sun, so they hit the UV beds and tan without applying sunscreen thinking they'll be fine. 

Well, Margaret Murphy from Dublin, Ireland wants these people to know that skin cancer is not a joke, so she's sharing pictures of her face while receiving daily treatments to remove pre-cancerous cells to send a message.

Margaret says she started tanning while living in Crete for a decade, and continued to use tanning beds when she returned home to Dublin, which resulted in the development of Actinic Keratosis on her face.

Now she's undergoing an Efudix treatment, which burns the pre-cancerous cells off her face, and sharing the pain on her Facebook page Mag's Murphys Journey, so people will learn from her mistake and use a high factor sunscreen.

The Salmon Mousse - Darling, You Didn't Use Canned Salmon

Posted: 19 Jan 2017 05:59 PM PST


The Salmon Mousse by Stationjack

Souls who have left their physical bodies should feel lucky to still have any experiences at all, since many of them are stuck in the pitch black limbo of their own post-mortem minds. But some souls have yet to realize they're actually dead, so they sit there arguing with Death like a silly person until the surety of their demise finally sinks in. This is one of the reasons why humans can't seem to figure out the meaning of life, because they're about as familiar with the feeling of being alive as a python is with the feeling of having arms!

Add a cold, bony touch of classic comedy to your geeky wardrobe with this The Salmon Mousse t-shirt by Stationjack, it's the perfect way to show love for the Monty Python crew without slapping people in the face with a fish!

Visit Stationjack's Facebook fan page, official website, Twitter, Instagram and Tumblr, then head on over to his NeatoShop for more delightfully geeky designs:

This Bad-Haired Moth With a Weird Penis Was Just Named After Donald Trump

Posted: 19 Jan 2017 05:59 PM PST

Just in time for the inauguration, scientists have named the first ever animal after Donald Trump. A few species were named after Obama during his term and now it's Trump's turn. Of course, there is always a reason behind naming a new species after someone and in this case, it's the moth's strange, scaly forehead that bears resemblance to its namesake's yellow helmet of hair. The moth also has a strangely curved penis, but there's no word on if that went into the naming decision or not. 

Those who wish to see the N. donaldtrumpi in person will have to visit California or Baja Mexico, where they are presumably scoping out land to build a great wall.

A Wish To Be Really, Really Hot

Posted: 19 Jan 2017 03:59 PM PST

Why are people so concerned with physical perfection?

The traits that constitute a "perfect 10" are a matter of opinion, and therefore someone probably already thinks you're a "10" and you don't even know it!

So if a genie ever grants you a wish take it from this comic by The Pigeon Gazette and don't waste it on matters of physical beauty, because people won't like you if your beauty melts their face off!

A Chillingly Awesome Serving Suggestion

Posted: 19 Jan 2017 01:59 PM PST

You don't really need a spoon for a shot glass in most cases, but when the spoon and shot glass compliment each other as well as this crawling hand glass and bone spoon do, practicality certainly gives way to aesthetics. 

The creations, by artist CTCordingly, come in a multitude of colors and are 3D printed in porcelain. They're perfect for any creepy party, especially a creepy dinner party with a tasting menu that includes a soup course (since it's the perfect excuse for a tiny amount of liquid that still requires a spoon).

So check out the glasses and spoons here.

Disney Pixar Confirms All Of Their Films Exist In The Same Universe

Posted: 19 Jan 2017 11:59 AM PST

They teased at the truth with Easter eggs and crossover clues in most of their movies, fans collected all the easter eggs and formed a unified world theory, and now Pixar has finally confirmed it- all of their movies exist in the same universe. 

It's one of those announcements that make you say "yeah, I figured as much", and yet it's nice to hear it straight from the studio's mouth since most creators won't admit when their projects are all interconnected.

Of course, Disney Pixar didn't just come out and admit the same universe connection- they posted this video on the official Toy Story Facebook page with the caption "Oh my spurs! You ain't never seen Easter eggs like these, partner".

Now the hunt for Pixar Easter eggs will never end!

My Name is Cow

Posted: 19 Jan 2017 09:59 AM PST

A couple of months ago, a reddit thread asked for stories about health inspection violations. Chamale posted a lovely story about an inspection at a historical recreation.

My stepdad used to be a baker in an authentic recreation of an 18th century New French fortress. Because they sell bread to the public, the health inspector came by, and she was ripping into my stepdad for violations like the stonework walls, the doorless entranceways, or the lack of a mosquito zapper. He pointed out that they were following the highest standards except for things that would destroy the authenticity of this 18th-century bakery. The health inspector relented and agreed to give him a pass after verifying the food storage area was secure. They went to the shed, which was a doorless building attached to the bakery. As the health inspector went in, there happened to be an escaped cow licking all of the loaves. My stepdad could only say, "Honestly, this never happens." They passed the health inspection.

In response, redditor Poem_for_your_sprog (Sam Garland) wrote an amazing poem.

my name is Cow,
and wen its nite,
or wen the moon
is shiyning brite,
and all the men
haf gon to bed -
i stay up late.

i lik the bred.

That started a meme that spread way beyond reddit, as others contributed poems recited by the dog, the cat, the calf (with a reply from the cat), the goat, the bread, and more from the cow. And more here and here. So when you run into more poems of the same type, you'll know where they came from.

The Top Five Garlic Tips, Tested

Posted: 19 Jan 2017 07:59 AM PST

Garlic is the king of all flavoring agents and condiments in many kitchens, and although garlic is nearly impossible to work into sweet recipes it works well in damn near every savory recipe ever created.  

But many people avoid using fresh garlic because it's a pain to peel, too sticky and stinky to chop or crush, and hard to properly roast, and their dishes are left devoid of that great garlic flavor.

Luckily, there are simple solutions to all of these garlic problems- microwaving garlic cloves for about fifteen seconds will make peeling a snap, or you can just seal the cloves in a jar and shake vigorously until the skin falls away. 

Roasted garlic is a delicious addition to salads, guacamole and other dips, or when spread on a piece of toast, but the roasting process can take about an hour which may be too long when you're making dinner. 

So rather than waiting around for an hour throw the unpeeled garlic cloves in a cast iron skillet over medium heat, turning occasionally until they're cooked evenly on all sides.
