Vegan Learns That Mayo Isn't Actually Vegan

Well, you can learn something new everyday. It just might be a bit more humbling, if not humiliating, to learn that mayo isn't a part of the vegan family while you're busy telling people that you're vegan. If anything, it's a quick and funny scenario like this one that should encourage people to do their homework before they go back out into the world and tell other people that they're subscribed to a certain kind of lifestyle, without actually knowing all the rules associated with said lifestyle.

There are definitely fake towns out there, but the specifics of how staffed they might be is up for investigation. How does it feel to walk around in a government fabricated ghost town?

Things That Seem Like Cults But Aren't Quite Cults

No cult will ever reveal that it's a cult, but they're easy enough to spot. It's usually any group with a whole lot of robes, too much enthusiasm and some really nontransparent management. At its core, any group can seem cult-like, especially when it develops its own strict set of rules and ceremonies. In these strange times it wouldn't be surprising if more cults are coming.

Wholesome Gamers Throw Birthday Party For Lonely Kid

As people who have grown up playing video games, we scoff at the notion that video games inherently corrupt people and turn them into violent sociopaths. It's probably more likely that they just turn people into hardline capitalists determined to see how they can buff their intelligence with potions in order to siphon as much gold as possible out of their local apothecary. Video games give people a chance to nuke their fellow players out of orbit, but they also let us cooperate with people we might otherwise not, and sometimes that turns into wholesome moments such as this.

Twitter Thread: Dude Teams Up With Arizona Diamondbacks To Monitor Buddy's Date

Man, what a caring roommate this guy is. He decided to reach on out to the Arizona Diamondbacks on Twitter to coordinate an effort to check in on his buddy's date from afar. Suffice to say, the mission was most successful. This will either warm people's hearts, or inspire folks to NOT share with their friends that they're on dates.

The future is now, folks. Many years ago if you were out and about talking about the impending reality of sharing the road with driverless cars you'd have been labeled delusional. Yet now, here we are. The car itself puts on quite the impressive show when it comes to how smoothly it's able to navigate the road.

Just in case you were unaware, the 11foot8+8 bridge has developed quite the notorious reputation online for its track record of claiming the roofs of trucks that fail to properly map out the height of the bridge vs. the height of the truck. Fortunately, it doesn't appear as if anyone is getting injured in the process. Just some blows to the egos.

Bridesmaid Sets Boundaries With Bride-To-Be, Sends Her Into Irrational Rage

Okay, there's just always going to be something about weddings that brings out people's crazy sides. It could be the fact the event itself is hyped up to such an extent that it invites people's irrational, inner perfectionist side to come join the party. The thing about trying to do anything perfect in this life is that it's impossible. You can pretty much count on something always not going as you planned it. Such is life. When you consider that the bride in this scenario literally signed off on the bridesmaid's dress, and then tries to backtrack, it just seems like a lose-lose situation.
