  • Ron Perlman Took Part In Reddit’s Secret Santa And Totally Delivered

    Ron Perlman, known for roles in just about everything, including Sons of Anarchy, Hellboy, Alien:Resurrection, and that terrible Beauty and the Beast 80s TV series where he lived in the sewers under present-day New York, is also a Redditor. And like any good Redditor, he took part in the annual Secret Santa gift exchange. It’s the largest gift exchange in the world, with over 200,000 people in 188 countries taking part this year. Redditor writedrunk_editsober received this package with a personalized autographed book and DVD from Perlman along with a few chocolate bars (Perlman noticed his giftee liked chocolate bars). And just in case you don’t believe the package really came from the actor, a Reddit employee confirmed that she picked up the goods while Perlman was filming in NYC then sent the package from Reddit’s office.

  • 6 Things Wrong With Her Boobs (That You Love Anyway)

    Boobs are like friends: Girls are going to complain about theirs even when they’re ultimately happy with them. So when your girlfriend is saying “they could be better,” you have to stick up for them (because they’re sticking up just fine already!). But you’ve got to know what’s behind your girlfriend’s gripe in order to be the best boob advocate you can be…

  • Broments: The 14 Most Bro Moments That Broke The Internet In 2014

    Urban Dictionary defines a “Broment” as a special moment between two dudes or when a bro does something notable or extraordinary. We went through the internet archives and pulled the absolute best brotable broments, bro. This year was filled with more dude-centric heartfelt moments than words that can phonetically change  to include ‘bro’. Bro-netics. It’s not every day a retired quarterback decides to put his body through more pain and suffering after 20 years of getting thrown to the ground by 300-pound linemen or when a certain playboy celebrity dumps his model girlfriend, to party with 20 women in Miami. All these moments, no matter how cliché bro, define what it means to be one. Here are this year’s best “Broments”. 45-year-old gun slinger, Brett Favre placed third at the Golf Shores Triathlon in Alabama. Busted Coverage — When a random man named “Zack ‘Danger’ Brown” asked for $10 to make potato salad on KickStarter.  Then raised $55,000 for the project. Kickstarter — Lance Stephenson literally tried to get in Lebron James’ head during last season’s NBA playoffs. Stephenson has gotten weirder ever since. — Jeff Gordon said he wanted to do more than talk. Brad Keselowski said he’d rather “have enemies in NASCAR than have more »

  • Japanese Businessmen Work Hard, Play Hard, And Pass Out Hard [21 Photos]

    Japanese businessmen are known to be workaholics. Tt’s extremely common for those with full-time jobs to work over 60 hours a week. Japanese businessmen are known to be alcoholics. Drinking with clients is expected and alcohol consumption as quadrupled since 1960. With both those figures in mind, it’s easy to see why there are so many photos of Japanese businessmen passed out in public. So let’s cut these hardworking dudes some slack and not laugh too much at these photos. Except for the guys who pass out on the trains. Taking up multiple seats is never cool and they should be shamed.

  • Segway Crashes Are The Best Crashes [12 GIFs]

    Remember when we all anxiously awaited the super-secret and overly-hyped “IT” only to be completely unimpressed when what we got was the Segway? The lame conveyance was bought up by early-adopter tech dorks and city tourism boards with too much money to spend while the rest of us quickly forgot the stupid things even existed. But now we have a reason to celebrate the Segway! Apparently people crash on them. A lot. And it’s really funny.

  • 16 Animals Named After Famous Musicians

    Today it was announced that a recently discovered species of deep sea snail would be named after legendary punk rocker and Clash frontman Joe Strummer. The Alviniconcha strummeri are snails covered with tiny spikes reminiscent of the late 70s punk fashion. But Strummer is not the first musician to receive such an honor. Scientists have named plenty of species for their favorite musicians. Sometimes it’s because the scientists are simply fans and want to honor their idols while other times it’s due to the simple fact that the animal looks just like its namesake. The hips on Aleiodes shakirae don’t lie.

  • A Prison Warden Covered Himself In Simpsons Tattoos

    52-year-old Australian prison warden and grandfather Michael Baxter is vying for the Guinness World Record for most cartoon characters tattooed. The record doesn’t currently exist, but there is one for most tattoos of one character, held by Lee Weir of New Zealand who has 41 Homer Simpson tattoos. Despite being covered in tattoos, Baxter didn’t get into body art until just a decade ago, starting with a blue bird on his arm. Then a few years ago he walked into Twisted By Design and walked out with his first Simpsons tattoo. He now has 203 characters from the long-running show covering his back. The art looks great and we wish Michael Baxter luck in achieving his world record. And we also hope former Simpsons producer David Mirkin was just kidding with this tweet: Truly a lovely tribute. We will, of course, have to sue him and confiscate his back. http://t.co/hUNvWAODhb pic.twitter.com/F2BLjtwEpC — David Mirkin (@DaveMirkin) December 4, 2014 via Herald Sun

  • James Blunt Is A Twitter God

    Most of us here in the US know James Blunt from his hit song “You’re Beautiful” way back in 2004, but he’s actually managed to stay popular, selling millions of albums worldwide. Seriously, I looked it up. And honestly, his latest music isn’t terrible as far as pop goes. But even if his music career eventually dies, he can always become an insult comic. Check out these 2014 highlights from James Blunt’s Twitter account and see how celebrities should handle hateful social media posts. You would if yours was this big. RT @HannahNorman96: I've never fully understood why James Blunt felt the need to strip in his music video — James Blunt (@JamesBlunt) December 9, 2014 Coming upstairs now.

  • Build Your Own Hoverboard Using Leaf Blowers And Plywood

    This year has been tough for those of us who have been waiting for hoverboards since Back to the Future II. First Tony Hawk advertised one iin a video that turned out to be a hoax. Then someone actually invented a working hoverboard, but it’s big and complicated and can only hover over certain materials. 2015, the “future” in the film, is almost here and it looks like we’ll never have the simple Mattel hoverboards we’ve wanted since 1989. Or will we? Ryan Craven, aka Mr. Hoverboard, has created a hoverboard using materials you can pick up at Home Depot or Lowe’s. The device is basically a small hovercraft made with four leaf blowers, a shower curtain, plywood, tape, and staples. Craven estimates it costs between $250 and $500 to build your own. And best of all, he’s shared his plans at Mr. Hoverboard so you can easily build your own. Quit wasting your time waiting around for someone else to make your damn hoverboard. Watch the video of Mr. Hoverboard in action, go buy your materials, and start building. Then make us one, too. via CNET

  • This Disabled Tortoise Was Fitted With A Lego Wheelchair

    Blade the tortoise suffers from a growth disorder that progressed to the point where his own limbs became so weak, he couldn’t hold himself up. German veterinarian Dr. Carsten Plischke was inspired by his son’s Lego collection to build a wheelchair for Blade using the popular toy. Just six pieces were used to give Blade mobility, attached to the bottom of his shell. Not only can Blade move around again, he can also rebuild the muscles in his limbs by scooting about on his Lego wheelchair. Hopefully he never falls at the top of a hill…

  • 15 Inappropriate Uses Of Comic Sans

    Comic sans is a perfectly good font to use if you’re seven years old and making a shitty, clip-art cluttered card for your parents that they’ll hang on the refrigerator until you forget about it and they can throw it out. But if you’re an NBA star, LeBron James for instance, and you’re wearing a shirt to protest a serious issue, perhaps one that says “I can’t breathe,” you probably shouldn’t go with comic sans. Last night, LeBron James made such a faux pas, but he is in no way the first. There have been plenty of egregious uses of the font since it’s creation over 20 years ago. Here are a few especially shocking examples of unintended levity. Rape, electrocution, and death never seemed so silly!

  • Retirees Recreate Classic Films For Charity Calendar

  • 10 Types Of 30-Year-Old Single Guys. Which One Are You?

    Find me a group of 30-year-old men and I’ll pick out one overgrown frat dude living with roommates, another guy who just dropped his two kids off at school, a few who are well into their careers and a couple soul-searchers looking for work. Some will tell you that they’ve finally figured it all out and some more will say they feel hopeless for the first time in their lives. It’s a motley crew. But perhaps the motliest part of this crowd is the ever-growing group of 30-year-old single guys. If you want a case study in humanity, 30-year-old single guys have pretty much all the bases covered. Let’s examine some of the common types:

  • This DIY Seinfeld Fish Tank Is Gold, Jerry! Gold!

    What’s the deal with pet fish? You can’t take them for walks. You can’t pet them. What kind of person goes to a pet store, sees a fish swimming around in circles, and says “That’s for me. I need that in my life.” Who are these people? Audience laughter Cue funky bass line Fish tanks are boring and after the novelty wears off, you’re left with a stinky cesspool. But this DIY Seinfeld fish tank made from an old TV set is almost cool enough to make us want to get some fish. Almost. If you have an old TV and a lot of time on your hands, check out the step-by-step guide at Awesomeness Projects. If nothing else, it’ll make a swell Festivus gift.

  • You Probably Shouldn’t Buy This Lego Strip Club for Your Kids

    Remember all the joy you got as a kid when you tore apart the wrapping paper on your Christmas gift only to reveal a Lego set? You’d spend the entirety of Christmas break constructing then playing with those little yellow folks in their imaginary world. If you have kids, you should ensure they experience the same joy by giving them a Lego set this year. But for God’s sake, don’t buy them this one. Citizen Brick, producers of custom Lego items aimed mostly at adults, has created their greatest product yet with the Citizen Brick Center for the Performing Arts. But don’t count on seeing the symphony or a production of Don Giovanni at this performing arts center. It’s actually a strip club playset, complete with pole, dancers, creepy DJ, and dollar bills to make it rain. The detail is extraordinary, with pink leopard print floors, zebra print furniture, working led lights, and holographic mirrors aplenty. For added realism, you might want to poor some bubble gum vodka over the whole thing to give it that disgusting stickiness and maybe a spray or twelve of the cheapest perfume you can find (perhaps some Designer Imposters).

  • 15 Photos From Argentina’s Amateur Pole Dance Competition…For Science!

    Although many filthy-minded individuals equate pole dancing with strip clubs, it can actually be an incredible display of acrobatics and athleticism.

Now in its seventh year, the competition features women, men, and pairs competitors. The winners move on to the World Pole Dance Championship to be held in Hong Kong in 2015.

  • Would You Go To A Bar Run Out Of Someone’s Basement? [8 Photos]

    It’s not all that crazy to see a bar operating out of a building’s basement, but usually that building is a commercial property. And there would definitely be something weird about a bar that was run out of the basement of a house. That’s probably why such a bar is a rare sight (legally speaking, at least). In Maryland, there is only one such bar and it has been operating for more than 50 years. Located in Pasadena, Maryland, just south of Baltimore, Irv’s Basement Bar has been operated by 91-year-old Irv Koch since 1963. It was then that he and his brother, both plumbers, bought the property and opened the bar. However, the bar’s exact location is a secret kept by regulars who know to knock on Irv’s front door and ask him to open the bar when they’re in need of libations. So, anyone in the know want to get us in if we travel down to Maryland?

  • Happy Monday! Here Are Some Flying Dogs [18 Photos]

    Look! Up in the Sky! It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s a flying dog! And it looks terrified. Although the horrified looks from these dogs would lead you to believe German photographer Julia Christe is some sort of sadist (a sadistic German? Nein!), the pooches are actually just dropped from a low height onto a mattress by their owners. Wind machines and good timing help capture the hilarious expressions. And this is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to Julia Christe’s animal photos. You can find more from this series and plenty of others at Julia Christe Photography.

  • Vape Is The Oxford Dictionaries Word Of The Year

    It’s been a great year for stupid words, but of all the poor portmanteaus and atrocious abbreviations, one stood out from all the rest. And apparently that one was vape. As Oxford so eloquently puts it, vape means to “inhale and exhale the vapour produced by an electronic cigarette or similar device.” There is also a related noun, “vaping.” Vaping was actually coined before vape, with its first use pertaining to vapour-producing tobacco products occurring way back in 1983. But it was in 2009 that vape really started to catch on. And in the last two years, use of the term has exploded. What other asinine words did vape beat out for its title? Here’s the list from Oxford Dictionaries: bae n. used as a term of endearment for one’s romantic partner. budtender n. a person whose job is to serve customers in a cannabis dispensary or shop. contactless adj. relating to or involving technologies that allow a smart card, mobile phone, etc. to contact wirelessly to an electronic reader, typically in order to make a payment. indyref, n. an abbreviation of ‘independence referendum’, in reference to the referendum on Scottish independence, held in Scotland on 18 September 2014, in more »

  • An Artist Wants To Live Another Person’s Life Via VR Goggles For 28 Days

    Would you like to experience a random person’s life for 28 days? But with no control over what they do? Of course you wouldn’t. That would drive anyone mad. But how mad? We’ll soon find out, all for the sake of art! Artist Mark Farid intends on wearing a VR headset 24 hours a day for 28 days. He will be viewing the life of a heterosexual male who’s in a relationship and is known only as the Input. That means for 28 days, Farid won’t see his own body or surroundings, just what the Input experiences. Including sexy time with his significant other! For the duration of the project, Farid will inhabit a space with a bed, toilet, and shower that will be on constant display to his audience. There will also be a screen projecting just what Farid sees for the audience to view. Will Farid lose his sense of self? Probably. Will he lose his mind. Most certainly! Which is why Farid will talk to a psychologist for one hour each day (while still wearing the headset) and will be under constant medical supervision. Of course, a project such as this comes with many expenses. A Kickstarter more »
