Who Knew That Nerds Could Result In Some Really Cool Home Decor?

Who Knew That Nerds Could Result In Some Really Cool Home Decor?

Funny
I can still remember the joy and pure anger I would feel every time I ate Nerds as a kid. The tangy-sweetness was so enjoyable...but that happiness made me want to chew them. That's where the anger came in -- inevitably, my teeth would feel like I was noshing on some delicious rocks. But I kept eating them. Nowadays, I know to steer clear of the hard candy...at least when it comes to consumption. Instead, I choose to make crafts with them. Yep, you can make beautiful coasters with Nerds! How fun are these?! Rumble / waylightcreations Never again will I make the mistake of chewing on Nerds. Read more: http://www.viralnova.com/nerd-coasters/
18 Uses For Baby Oil You Didn’t Know About (And That Have Nothing To Do With Babies)

18 Uses For Baby Oil You Didn’t Know About (And That Have Nothing To Do With Babies)

Funny
Every parent knows that baby oil is a necessity in any home with a newborn. It keeps their skin soft and snuggle-able year-round. But what you might not know is that the infant-friendly oil is great for tons of other things. From removing paint from your skin to getting gum out of your hair, the baby product should actually be thought of more as a bathroom -- or even home -- essential. 1. Put a thin layer of the oil on any exposed skin during the winter -- it will prevent frostbite. Flickr / Sarah 2. Avoid harsh chemicals near your eyes by removing makeup with the oil.

Hand Sanitizer Has The Power To Remove This Annoying Substance From Your Car

Funny
From fender benders to making sure your registration is up to date and keeping the tank full...car owners have a lot of things to worry about. That's why when a bird poops on your windshield or you get tree sap on your pristine paint job, it's really the icing on the already stress-covered cake. While the white goop is pretty easy to get rid of, you can pretty much forget about getting that sticky sap off...Or at least that's what I thought until I saw this genius tip on The Garage. Come spring -- and summer and fall, for that matter -- trees have the annoying tendency to drip sap on your car.

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('VN_PG_DTBT_ATF'); }); Ice cream is great around this time of year (or any, if you ask me), but what happens when you can't find your flavor at the store?

When A Good Samaritan Found A Baby Sea Lion In The Road…He Did The Right Thing

Funny
It might sound odd for a sea lion to be found anywhere but in or around the sea, but it actually happens more often than you'd think. This little guy was found wandering around San Francisco not once...but twice! And this brazen buddy decided to take a break from the ocean and test out the pool. You see, when the moms need to find food for their pups, they sometimes leave them on shore. We imagine it can get a bit boring -- and maybe even scary -- so they opt to go out walking on their lonesome. When San Diego resident Matt McDevitt found this little guy waddling across a busy street, he knew just what to do. @nbcsandiego pic.twitter.com/nHM1w5Hxco— Matt McDevitt (@Matt_McDev24) February 16, 2016 Grabbing a friend and two beach towels, they stopped traffic and herded the conf...

He Bought A Huge Block Of Salt And Made Something Beautiful With It

Funny
This is Himalayan rock salt. Instructables / kludge77 While most people use the beautifully colored salt slabs to cook with, YouTuber, creator, and all-around DIYer Peter Brown wanted to try something a little different. Even though he was well aware that working with rock salt can corrode and rust power tools, Brown was determined to make a lamp with the stuff. When you see the incredible results, though, you'll know that the risk is well worth the reward. First, he cut the huge slab into two four-inch squares using a bandsaw.
