  • Souvenir Buttons Of Places You’ll Never Get To Visit [10 GIFs]

    The amount of amazing, fictional locales presented to us through literature, TV, and movies is astounding. And the fact we’ll never get to see those places is extremely disheartening. We’re not like those weirdos who watched Avatar repeatedly then got depressed when they had to leave the theater, but you have to admit, it would be pretty cool to go to Castle Grayskull and shout “I have the power!” At least now we have these Impossible Magnets to serve as souvenirs for these places we’ll never get to visit. You can buy the actual magnets here, and as an added treat, Snack Studios created these animated versions in the gallery.

  • These 12 Mathematical GIFs Will Hypnotize You

    David Whyte is a PhD candidate at Dublin’s Trinity College who has co-authored papers on such riveting topics as a Z-cone model for the energy of an ordered foam. We don’t know what that means, but we are all very impressed. When not engaging in exciting discoveries such as…that, Whyte creates incredible animated GIFs. Eschewing bouncy boobs and low-res movie clips for hypnotic loops of geometric patterns, Whyte’s work shows that there’s more to GIFs than just funny reactions (although those are great, too). And if this gallery doesn’t tickle your brain enough, check out more great GIFs on Whyte’s Tumblr, Bees & Bombs.

  • We Love These 10 Album Covers As Animated GIFs

    We’ve seen animated album covers before, and they were really great, but these are on another level. The artist, JB, originally created them just for himself for fun, but after amassing a huge collection, he put them up on Tumblr for all the world to enjoy. And judging by the many of the album covers he chose, he’s a fan of the great 90s punk from Fat Wreck Chords and Epitaph. Check out the rest at JB’s Tumblr where you can even make a request.

  • Historical Photos Transformed Into Bizarre GIFs

    New York-based artist Kevin Weir has spent the last few years on a Tumblr project known as flux machine. Using historical photos from the Library of Congress Flickr account, Weird transforms portraits of world leaders of yesteryear into bizarre monsters that look like something out of HP Lovecraft’s nightmares. World War I battlefields become scenes of sci-fi destruction. And perhaps most shockingly, John Philip Sousa’s hat becomes different types of hats. 3 years into the absurd project, Weir still occasionally updates the Tumblr. Check it out along with the rest of his work at Kevin J Weir.

  • 21 GIFs To Remember Kari Byron

    When “MythBusters” premiered in 2003, it was like nothing on TV. The science shows we had watched as kids, like “Mr. Wizard’s World,” “Beakman’s World,” and “Billy Nye The Science Guy,” had finally grown up. Gone were the acid-base volcanoes, replaced with exploding toilets and guns that shot frozen chickens. It was the beginning of the movement that turned science into something we all fucking love. We didn’t think it could get any better. Then it did. Season 2 introduced the build team of builder Tory Bellecci, metal-worker Scottie Chapman, and, most importantly, artist Kari Byron. This team would also perform outrageous experiments, made all the better with the inclusion of a plucky redhead. Sex appeal knows no bounds, not even in the lab, and Kari attracted even more attention to the hit show. She was smart, funny, and looked good firing a gun. Nerds the world over were smitten. Alas, nothing lasts forever. Yesterday it was announced that Tory, Grant (who replaced Scottie in the third season), and even our beloved Kari would not be returning to the show. “MythBusters” were going in a “new direction.” We’re sure Kari and the rest of the build team will find success, more »

  • Fist Bump, For Your Health [16 GIFs]

    Researchers at the Institute of Biological, Environmental and Rural Sciences at Aberystwyth University in Wales have recently discovered that fist bumps are 20 times more hygienic than handshakes and 10 times cleaner than even high fives. Fist bumps are a quicker greeting than handshakes, which average 3 seconds, and they have a much smaller contact area than high fives. Not only do you avoid gripping someone’s sweaty hand, you also don’t have to worry about showcasing your total lack of coordination when you fail at a high five. Plus, fist bumps are awesome! President Obama is a huge fan of the fist bump.

  • 30 Oscar Worthy Soccer Dives [30 GIFs]

    The World Cup begins tomorrow and if you’re in the US, there’s a good chance you didn’t know and didn’t care. On the surface, the game might just appear to be a bunch of dudes kicking a ball around for 90 minutes and hopefully scoring a goal at some point. And it is. But there are also amazing dives that would make the NBA’s best floppers envious. To celebrate the art of the dive, a new subreddit was recently created called SoccerOscars. Give these gifs a look and maybe you’ll find a new appreciation for a sport with the best acting you’ll see outside of a Miami Heat game.

  • Animated Movie Posters Are The Future Of Advertising [20 GIFs]

    In the future, when we are finally rid of paper and using digital screens for all our magazines (such as RSVLTS Magazine) and newspapers, we will be able to have animated movie poster advertisements such as these. Movie theaters would probably opt for sharp LCD screens over paper posters that nasty kids draw “peepees” on, too. Unfortunately the future has yet to arrive in the present and we still have have boring old paper ads that nobody cares about. At least we know that when the future arrives and the present is past, there are already artists available to animate our movie posters.

  • New Meme Alert: Blanka Is A Troll [43 GIFs]

    Recently we showed you some GIFs that illustrated the rotten behavior of Street Fighter’s Chun Li, but now it turns out that Blanka, the electric monster hailing from Brazil, is even more of a jerk. It’s bad enough that he electrocutes you every time you jump near him then bites your face repeatedly, but knocking children off trampolines? That’s just low class, man. 

  • The Movie Thats Sweeping The Internet today ‘Sharknado’ is Better in Gif Form

    Sharknado swept through our TV’s last night and no one really knew what to expect. But what we got was a couple of hours of 90’s bro and Sharknado protagonist, Ian Zering chainsawing his way through a tornado made of sharks. What makes things better than that, if you could imagine it getting better, Tara Reid plays a character who might as well be Tara Reid. Taking a bite out of ‘Snakes on a Plane’s’ action meets cheesey, Sharknado is worth the watch, but if you’d rather waste your time doing something else like reading or running, here’s basically the entire movie in Gif Form.   Here’s ‘Fin’ shooting a shark out of the sky with a hand gun   Here is a tornado made of sharks Here is Fin jumping into a sharks mouth with a chainsaw Tara Reid kicking a table with a chainsaw on it to Fin who then uses said chainsaw to cut a shark in half   Here is that scene again in slow mo. Incase you missed it.

    During the 4th inning of today’s Twins vs Rangers game in Arlington, TX lightning struck the stadium (or near by) and the ensuing boom of thunder sent players and fans scrambling for cover. We were at the game yesterday for our Windows Phone Baseball Bucket List stop at Ballpark in Arlington, saw Josh Hamilton hit two home runs and a walk-off, all humble brags aside if this happened I would have pee’d my pants a little.
