Ah, the internet. This vast digital landscape holds certain truths to be self-evident. Like the fact that 90 percent of humanity at large does, in fact, suck. And that high school students will continue citing Wikipedia as a legitimate source of information from now until the end of days. Oh, and that the verbal garbage that comes out of kids' faces is pure social media gold. googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('VN_PG_DCBP_ATF'); }); Because oversharing is a thing, I bring to you a collection of lovely exchanges between parents and the little ones who trouble them so deeply. 1.

Over the course of her illustrious career, artist Lisa Lichtenfels has perfectly illustrated what it means to work with boundless scope. After graduating from the Philadelphia College of Art, she scored every budding artist's dream gig of working as an apprentice animator with Disney.While working with some of the best creators in the business, Lichtenfels developed a keen interest in creating stop-motion figures, which is arguably one of the most meticulous methods of all. From there, her fascination grew into a sculptural career of epic (and life-sized) proportions. With heavy felt, nylon, and wire, this artist brings realistic sculptures to life. Lisa Lichtenfels Realism collides with fantasy in her Massachusetts-based studio. Sh...

Listen. I love Christmas. I love the food, the lights, the family time, and the presents. There's one thing about the holiday season, however, that strikes fear into my heart, and that's the thought of dragging a tree into my tiny city apartment and vacuuming up needles 57 times a day.

Cops In Lithuania Keep Pulling Women Over, But Not For The Reason You’d Expect

Cops In Lithuania Keep Pulling Women Over, But Not For The Reason You’d Expect

Funny
There are approximately zero people on this planet who enjoy getting pulled over. Seeing those red and blue lights in the rearview is always a gut-wrenching experience, and it's one that most of us tend to avoid like the plague by driving the speed limit and never being that moron who doesn't use turn signals. And that's exactly what these ladies in Lithuania were doing earlier this week on March 8, so why were they getting pulled over?As it turns out, the cops didn't give them tickets. In honor of International Women's Day, they decided to hand out flowers instead! These ladies feared the worst, but based on their reactions, those flowers cheered them right up!

You know what's fun? Buying people holiday gifts. You know what else is fun? Receiving them. What's not quite as entertaining is wrapping those gifts. If you're anything like me, the efforts of holiday wrapping usually culminate in crumpled paper, wads of tape, and a profound sense of existential dread.One graphic designer by the name of Sheila Wong is well aware of this mess. This year, she decided to create some quirky wrapping paper that would not only help less-than-skilled wrappers cover their heaping piles of presents, but would allow them do so in a way that'd completely baffle their loved ones. It's the best of both worlds, people. Wong started the project so that she could "mix things up a bit." Imgur / Zannrael While she could ea...

This Shadow Has Been Showing Up In Photos For Years, And Now It Has A Name

Funny
While poring over dozens of vintage snapshots, art collector Jean-Marie Donat noticed a pattern. This perceived commonality had nothing to do with scenes, subjects, or backgrounds. It had nothing to do with how the images were staged or why they were captured in the first place. It had to do with someone behind the lens making his way to the fore.He's merely a shadow. He's a thousand people and a single man all at once. He's the missing link between otherwise dissonant, unrelated images. In Donat's mind, he's the predator. In a limited-edition book called Predator, Donat weaves his way through an imagined story -- one that takes an innocuous figure and turns it into something sinister. Innocences Bookmaker Inno...
