Tumblr Thread: The Cultural Confusion of a Stick of Butter

Here's a good reminder that the way your country does things isn't necessarily the way it's done everywhere. We can see how this person would have a bit of an issue over the use of a stick of butter in a recipe.

Bride's Sister Threatens To Wear White Dress, Gets Kicked Off Duties

Weddings are a tense enough ordeal without family members selfishly stirring up all kinds of ridiculous, and entirely avoidable drama. It sounds like this bride's sister and mother crossed the kind of lines that ultimately warrant they get uninvited from the wedding.

Quora User Breaks Down Size Of The Universe

Perhaps the most mind blowing fact about the size of the universe is that the universe doesn't have one size, instead it's just that the universe is literal size. It's also wild to think about the fact that we can see the light from a galaxy that existed long before homo sapiens did.

There are very few beings that are capable of being as relaxed as these melty animals right here. The flaps and wobbly folds of these dogs, birds, and rodents are a marvel to behold; a splendorous foil to the stiff and rigid. These animals are basically puddles, man. For more surprisingly relaxed animals, here are sleepy dogs in goofy positions.
