Lawyers Share What They Can't Believe Is Legal Or Illegal

Someone on AskReddit asked for lawyers to share their biggest surprises when it came to what was legal/illegal, upon going through law school and learning the ins and outs of the justice system. Some of these are the very definition of outdated, and it's a true wonder the laws are still standing. While others are just a little bit silly. Like, in France it's illegal to name a pig "Napoleon."

21 Strange and Inventive Ways They Made Sound Effects For Classic Scenes

We like learning how our favorite movies achieved their astounding visual effects, but sound effects can make or break the tone of a movie. It's pretty cool to think that it's someone's job to figure out what it would sound like for a mooshy robot body to be pushed through metal bars. What's even more interesting is that they decided it would sound like dog food sliding out of a can.

Guy's Co-Worker Enlightens Him That He Read NSFW Harry Potter Fan Fiction Instead Of Actual Book

This guy found himself quite shook after realizing what he read was in fact not a Harry Potter novel named "The Order Of The Phoenix", but instead some erotic fan fiction. To make matters even more grand in terms of the fail in this story; he didn't realize he'd mistakenly read Harry Potter fan fiction until he was already in the middle of a conversation with co-workers about it. Yikes. But also, amazing.
