Toilet bowls are, by their nature, full of nasty stuff. Not only do they house your body's waste, they also are home to a ton of bacteria that's dangerous to our health. The toilet is meant for dirty things to go in, but sometimes...they don't stay in there.According to a study by scientists at Leeds University, toilet water splash-back contains tons of germs and bacteria that can cause diarrhea and vomiting.

Step aside Mr. Architect, there's a new champ in town. (I'm sorry, it's not you.) There are some animals in the world that are natural, self-taught architects. They are able to build the most unique and functional structures in the world. They could probably do it blind-folded. Animal instincts can be amazingly strong.

No matter how long people have been doing it, taxidermy is pretty creepy. As a profession, it must mess with your mental well-being, too.

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('VN_PG_DTAT_ATF'); }); Each year, millions of women and girls across the globe are subjected to abuse and barred from receiving even basic educations. According to UNESCO, there are 34 million girls of primary school age around the world who are not currently enrolled, and of those girls, upwards of 17 million will never receive an education of any kind. If they never make it through school, they presumably lack the skills they'd need to enter the workforce. This only reinforces oppressive systems that work against women globally.What's more is that sexual, physical, and psychological violence are used as weapons against women and girls everywhere.

This Is The Funniest Dad Joke You’ll Ever See. Trust Me.

Life Hacks
I'm pretty sure that every dad in the history of time has played the ole "got your nose!" gag on their impressionable young child. It's the first in a long line of dad-brand humor we all come to know and, usually begrudgingly, love. Most kids take in stride, but when this Missoula, Montana, dad broke out the trick for his son, the kid didn't handle it so well. And it's hilarious. I don't know who's crying more: this kid or me from laughing so much. I'm so glad the mom had her camera ready! (via Laughing Squid.) I know we probably shouldn't laugh at crying kids, but this is just too funny to pass up. He'll understand when he's older. Share the LOLs with your friends using the buttons below!

Nature Study Reveals That The Majestic Jaguar Is A Big Silly Kitty. Awww.

If you have a cat, or know anything about cats (you're on the Internet--of course you know about cats), you know that they like to think of themselves as the sleek, fluid embodiments of grace and much of the time they live up to that idea. But the rest of the time they're rolling around on the ground and flailing their feet and generally acting like goofballs. It all stops, though, if they know you're watching. Image is everything.  Turns out big cats are no different than their domesticated cousins.  The Mamirauá Institute in Brazil set up some camera traps in one of its nature preserves to capture some animal activity for research purposes. The animals would set off a device, and a camera would snap their picture. One night, a jaguar happene...
