Playing the crash cymbals for the 'Star Spangled Banner' in your school band is kind of a big deal. It's definitely the most dramatic part of the song, and it only gets more dramatic when one of the cymbals breaks. What does one do when such a nightmare occurs? Take a cue from this kid who handled the situation like a bawse.
Hey, did you notice it's summer outside? It's time to start working on that "beat the heat" thing, and since the neighbors gave us weird looks when we just held a hose over our head during the hottest hour of the day, we're thinking lemonade might be the way to go. Sure a tall glass of classic lemonade sounds good, but why drink that all summer long, when you can add stuff to it like tequila? Or other fruit. But also tequila!
You probably think of Monopoly as that excruciating board game you have to play with your family, unless your mom likes to make her nephews cry and it gets banned from the house (thanks, Mom!). It turns out it's not the Parker Bros.' fault that the game is so mind-numbingly dull -- it's yours. You've been playing it wrong all these years.
Yesterday was the culmination of hours of hard work and studying at the Scribbs National Spelling Bee. Before Arvind Mahankali won the title of champion (like a bawse, it's worth noting), kids from across the country came together to experience some extreme competition.
Here's a nice, unsettling thing to look at: "Sloth-facing," also known as "Quasimoderping." Basically, you just move the eyes around a picture until it looks like a sloth and you are laughing/scared. It's pretty big on the internet right now, thanks to Redditor treverhaas, whose album of sloth-faced celebrities picked up some steam.
Of course, subreddit /r/quasimoderp have been doing this (more or less) for about seven months now, so there are lots of good celbrisloths floating around on the internet. Here are some of our favorites:
If you were planning on taking pictures at your wedding, you may as well cancel the photographer. In fact, you should probably call off the entire wedding, because what could possibly top this picture?
A 'Star Trek' fan at Comicpalooza in Houston, Texas, got the chance to ask Sir Patrick Stewart what he thinks the most important work he's done outside of acting has been. It turned out to be a very good question, eliciting a nearly eight-minute response about Stewart's work to help women who are victims of violence and soldiers who suffer PTSD.
Kids, they say the darndest things, amirite?? One couple decided to harness the precocity of toddlers to announce to their friends and family that they're having a baby. When they asked their daughter Adela, to tell the camera what's happening in a few months, boy, oh boy, did she ever tell the world
If you're not taking advantage of your baby's pliability and lack of motor control skills to pose them for silly photographs, frankly we don't understand why you even had kids. If for no other reason than to post a picture of your kid to Facebook every once in a while that is actually entertaining, instead of just sharing "the magic" of a 10-month-old eating pie. Of course they like it -- it's pie.
This video should be just the thing to lift your spirits if you really wish you weren't back at work already. It's a supercut. Not just any supercut -- a supercut of 77 awesome (and not so awesome) dance scenes from movies set to 'Safety Dance.' It's pretty great.
If you brought a spare pare of pants to work today, feel free to watch this video. Storm chasers Bradon Ivey and Sean Casey were sitting in their "Tornado Intercept Vehicle" when they quite literally intercepted a tornado.
