What's cool to you might not be cool to the next person, so make sure you really have a good idea what is in, and what is out.

Even if you had a neighbor playing this it'd pretty much be impossible to be mad. Way too cool.

Real Life Optical Illusions and Double-Takery

Your brain is doing it's best to keep up with all the information your eyes throw at it, but sometimes things don't make sense. With some weird perspective, you can confuse yourself into thinking stuff is way too big or small, floating strangely, or something else entirely.

Strange and Interesting Chairs

Here are some clever and creative implements for sitting. Some of them even look comfortable. If you think these designs are too well thought out, then here are some design fails that were someone's one job. And for a way less comfortable place to sit, here are some toilets with threatening auras.

Strange Illusions Caused By Weird Perspective

In an effort to try to recognize everything at a glance, eyes sometimes throw information at us that doesn't exactly make sense. Strange perspective can give us things that shouldn't exist, for instance, a valley inside of a fence post, or a cat with a human butt.

Shower Thoughts That Dispensed Insightful Wisdom

The subreddtit r/Showerthoughts offers moments of insight and clarity that most of us can only hope to dream up when we're in the shower. A few minutes of silent, pensive oneness with the universe and soap is sometimes the only way to get the brain really running. Shower thoughts melt minds in all the right ways.

Drilling for ice cores in the Antarctic has its perks, like hearing the freaky sound of ice dropping down an extremely long ice tube. It legit sounds like they're shooting a space western down there.

There are reports that this story could actually be nothing more than a work of fiction. Real or not, it's still quite the entertaining tale.

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.

What a time to be alive. Spinning an apple fast enough to literally get it to explode is one of those things that you probably never thought you'd actually see happen, a couple decades ago or so. But here we are. In all of its glory you can feast your eyes on an apple that's spun so fast that it explodes. And, you can see it all happen in slo-mo. Beautiful stuff.

Winning Game Show Contestants Share What That's Like

Every time someone wins a trip or a new car on a gameshow, someone in the room is bound to say "yeah, but the taxes on that thing." Granted, it's better to have a bunch of money even if it's less than the amount of money Pat Sajak told you it would be. Game shows are a weird cultural thing, but luckily there are tons of people who know what reality and game show tapings are like.

This guy was really playing with fire when it came to how close he took his drone to that train. Literally flew it into a moving boxcar at one point. That could've ended up being a complete disaster.

Nicolai Geertsen managed a cool-looking score when his first attempt bounced off the goal and right back at him. Undeterred, he went for it again in a showing that looked more like ping pong than anything else.

Things That Are Way Newer Than People Think

Life looks a lot different now than it did even twenty or thirty years ago. As recently as fifty years ago, even scientists had a hugely different idea of how the world worked. And a hundred years ago? Screw that, no one wants to live in a world without functioning toilet paper or high fives. On the flipside, there's also tons of stuff that's way older than people think.
