Wholesome Memes to Keep That Head Up

The world can seem pretty far gone sometimes, but it's good to have a wholesome reminder that some things are still nice. It's pretty easy to be sarcastic all the time, but it can get tiring when you're looking for the negatives in every aspect of life. Therefore, it's a decent idea to get some wholesome memes for a little boost.

Craziest Butterfly Effects From People's Small Decisions

It's truly crazy just how much of an impact one small decision can end up having in the grand scheme of things. Or maybe what we merely conceptualize as being a "small decision" on the surface level, is nothing of the sort. The universe is weird, and likes to keep us on our toes. Maybe that's the inherently fun part about living -- is not knowing what's coming around the corner, and certainly not knowing what a minor move will go on to cause.

Tumblr Thread: Inspired DND Campaign Is a Feels Trip

Dungeons and Dragons lets your most creative friends come up with amazing ways to send you on adventures. Sometimes dungeon masters take the story far enough that it actually draws out a real emotional response from the players. People think a lot about fantasy worlds, like how this guy proposes that wizards are a bunch of magic snobs or this thing about dwarves having intelligent super beards.

It goes without saying that Eddie Van Halen was among the most talented and iconic guitarists in history, and the world is less rich without him. In addition to composing amazing music and some of the greatest sounds to ever squeal out of a guitar, he could also do animal impressions. Legendary.

It's about time when all those permanently gutted chunks of strip malls get their yearly residency from Spirit Halloween. We haven't seen anything quite like this before. And sure it's extremely frivolous and unnecessary, but hey man it's pretty cool that someone thought of this thing. And no, Spirit didn't pay us or anything, we just thought this was badass.

Twitter Thread: The Time Ruth Bader Ginsberg Talked Smack

Following the passing of Ruth Bader Ginsberg, people were compelled to tell stories of the supreme court justice's impact and legacy. In this instance we have a guy sharing his time working with the justices in a fantasy baseball league. The thought of having a petty fantasy league moment in such an official setting is surreal.

Some individual clerks did.

Resilient Trees that Don't Give A Heck

Trees seem incapable of caring where they are or what they're doing. And we respect them for that. They could be on a cliff, in a pole, or be a hungry tree enveloping stuff and they wouldn't even give a rip. Not only do trees not care, sometimes people don't give a heck, and the results are wild.

Of all the things you've seen a Styrofoam box do, this is probably the most lively. This bad boy falls out of the back of a van on the freeway, and it flippity-floops itself right back in there like magic. Two for the price of one baby. Remember to secure your loads, kids.

Live stand-up comedy is a hard thing to do during a nationwide quarantine. This particular approach has audience members drive in and tune in to a particular radio station tuned to each comic's mic. To get some real-time feedback there's the policy of "honk when you laugh." It's weird to see a parking lot full of cars honking and have it be a good thing, but the idea is definitely a creative solution to the issue of holding a live event.

Museum Asked People to Recreate Art and They Nailed It

The Getty Museum challenged the people of twitter to recreate famous art pieces with things lying around their house. Of course, people were bored and creative enough to do it. For a weirder time people were asked to do art, here's the time people were asked to draw a duck, and they responded.
