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.

Pictures Worth More Than 1000 Words (20 images)

There are times when we look at a picture and straight-up have to pause. Our head tilts, eyes squint, and we wonder what in the world happened to lead this cat to get up onto an umbrella. There's no way to know, of course, since sometimes, all that we have is the picture. So, we are left with having to come up with our own story, and stories about these kinds of amazing pictures can never be covered in anything less than 1000 words. 

As animal lovers, these kinds of pictures are our favorites, because there is nothing that we appreciate more than a creativity boost, and these pictures deliver inspiration like nothing else we've seen. And so we made it a mission to find these kinds of pictures every single week and share them with you so that you may enjoy some of that creativity and inspiration as well.

"Not a WIN"? Well, it's certainly not this:

Look at that poise, that grace, that "Deal With It" attitude that can only be described in a single adjective: SWAG.

There are few things cooler than slow motion. Well, maybe fast motion, like on Benny Hill.

Anyway, things moving in fast or slow mo always looks cool. Like, for instance, check out this video from the Slow Mo Guys. They filmed a hammer smashing a mirror at 120,000 frames per seconds, slowed it down, and lived in every moment. It’s really cool.

I wish I could be that cool. Unfortunately, I move like a normal person, how ever fast that is. Sigh. Life is bad.

To make it better, here's some fast motion:

Every good little girl and boy is going to want one of these this Christmas. Hoverbikes, which at this point is just a chair and handlebars attached to four drones, are unequivocally cool, even when this Russian company calls them "Hoversurf."

This is designed to be an "extreme sports" vehicle, a type of flying motocross bike thing. But I'm still waiting for something more like this:

Look, when you throw an egg on the ground, it cracks. When you open a faucet, water comes out, not a dish owel. Finally, when you throw a bowling ball down a flight of stairs, it doesn't magically float up into the air. That's the way this works. 

Well, tell that to "For Approval" by Mainframe North, who seems to think that the laws of gravity don't apply to them. Check it out and be furious and amazed:

There are few things that add more to a word than the placing the word “Rocket” in front of it. Well, maybe the word “Mania” or “Rama” behind it.

In this video, YouTubers The Backyard Scientists attempt to recreate a small scale version of a Mythbusters classic. They attached a blade to a track, light a rocket, and send through a toy car, a whole chicken, some fruit, and a steak. This is knife moves at 150 mph and could cut through anything.

Oh, and one time the knife blew up. It rocks.

Have you ever wanted to safely stare death in the face and laugh? Now you can. 

Sitting atop Mount Langya in Hebei, China, a glass bridge and observation platform allows you to look down at the 1,476 foot drop below. No cables or harnesses necessary, you can get to the top of Langya by cable car and a 40-minute walk. It's that easy for you to risk it all with minimal risk. 

However, this is the closest I will ever come to this thing:

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.

Frisco68 recently posted this video of her friend getting into a car accident that causes her vehicle to flip. It's amazing how she stays so calm and collected, given the violence of the crash. Luckily nobody was hurt.
