Inanimate Objects that Look Like Other Stuff

Why do we get joy out of seeing things in other things? Is it because we want to imagine we're surrounded by friendly objects? Is it because it's like a fun visual puzzle? Maybe it's because we're just wired to see faces? It's very apparent in these inanimate objects with a whole lot of personality.

Lady Claims To Know Apartment Owner, Gets Swiftly Outed

Nothing warms our hearts like seeing a blatant liar get caught up in their web of dumb lies. This lady sounds like she was a real entitled handful from the very start. She claimed to know the apartment owner, issued threats about the employee losing their job, and ultimately got disproven in record time.

Twitter Thread: Old Wax Figures are Some Prime Nightmare Fuel

Wyatt Duncan takes us on a journey of really not great wax figures that are presumably somewhere right now, moldering away in people's basements and love dungeons. Judging by how many creepy wax figures we've seen, it must be really hard to do this correctly. For some insight on why these are so creepy, here's a tumblr thread on the uncanny valley aspects of why unrealistic animation is less unsettling than realistic animation

Twitter thread on creepy old wax figures | Wyatt Dunkin @WyattDuncan More than ten years ago Hollywood Wax Museum held an online auction and sold off hundreds life sized wax figures.

Times Travelling Americans Realized "I'm Not In The U.S."

Culture shock is real, and sometimes a very small detail is enough to make you realize that the things you take for granted are definitely not standard. It could be as small as finding out milk is sold in bags, or as big as realizing that traffic laws are more of a suggestion than anything else. That said, non-Americans get some serious culture shocks when they get to the States, and some would be shocked to realized that there are some Western foods that are weird to visitors.

Delicious Looking Things that Aren't Actually Food

Our world is full of things that look like good food but aren't. It could be a manhole cover that looks like a waffle, mushrooms that look like mac and cheese, or an entire continent that looks like a steak dinner. There's a heaping helping of automotive products, paint, dice, sponges and other random junk that looks like tasty food but isn't.

Everybody assumes Keanu Reeve's John Wick's greatest skill is his ability to headshot 20 dudes in five seconds, but what if his actual greatest ability is being a super nice guy and a great friend? Carly Snowdon and Jordan Breeding dive straight into the shadowy weeds to discuss the qualifications of an expert assassin, what it means to be a good friend, and whether there will ever be a better action franchise than "The Raid."

Sure, most birds will wait for bread to fall and just eat it off the ground like the filthy animals they are. But this one had a decidedly more spectacular way of doing things, a method that requires much better bird-eye coordination. With interception skills like that it could play for the Ravens.
