People Can't Stop Laughing At How Ridiculous Their Pets Look When They're Sleeping

One of the things I admire most about my cats is their ability to sleep anywhere—on the bed, behind the toilet, draped over the shoe I’ve been looking for for the last twenty minutes. They just have the capacity for bone deep relaxation. And sometimes it looks really, really weird.

A popular Japanese hashtag that loosely translates to “be an untidy sleeper” is circulating on Twitter right now, and it shows just how freaky animals get when they’re chasing that REM sleep:

These animals are all supposedly okay. They’re just ridiculous, not in comas. But if you saw a person looking like this on the couch, you’d scream:

This rabbit food was set to stun (I checked, the rabbit on this person’s timeline is FINE):

Animals don’t care where they land:

Or if they’re scaring the crap out of you:

Or what corner of the cage they’re crammed into:

But, again, they’re okay!!

Even if it seems like they’re trying NOT to be okay:

And then, in the snap of your fingers, they’re ready to play again.

Americans Get Their First Look At K-Pop Group BTS–And They Like What They See

If you’re a longtime BTS fan, your hipster moment has finally arrived.

The Korean pop boy band supergroup performed at this year’s AMAs and basically stole the show. 

Major media outlets were going gaga for the band’s performance.

And it wasn’t long before people were mimicking their moves, either.

But for fans of the band, who probably got eye-rolls from their pals who “aren’t into K-Pop,” they knew BTS was going to crush it before they ever even took the stage.

Their show also earned them a bunch of new fans as well.

Also Twitter was geeking out over their dance skills.

If you didn’t see their performance you can check it out here:

We're Getting A Glimpse Of What Baby Porgs May Look Like In The New 'Star Wars' Film–And Yiiikes

When the Star Wars: The Last Jedi trailer hit the Internet, people got pretty excited over Porgs. The latest addition to the fauna of the Star Wars galaxy, you may think very differently of them after seeing what a baby Porg looks like. 

During an appearance on The Star Wars Show, Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy suggested that we’d be seeing their infant form very soon. And thanks to a Japanese toy site, we now know that baby Porgs are absolutely hideous…

People Are Already Dropping Their iPhone X's And We Can't Look Away

We’ve all heard horror stories about the iPhone breaking. Whether it’s because it’s so bendy…

…or scarily easy to shatter…

Surely, the new $ 1,000+ iPhone X would be a more stalwart handset that won’t shatter after slipping from your fingertips?

Well, actually, that’s not the case. There are some unfortunate souls who’ve purchased the phone, on launch day, and have been simultaneously let down by its break-tastic design and their own clumsiness.

And if you thought that fixing an iPhone’s screen was expensive before, just wait till you hear how much it costs to replace the X’s, Essential Phones-esque screen

$ 275, (or $ 25 less than price of a brand-new Moto G5 Plus) is what it costs to replace your iPhone X’s screen. Which makes watching these videos of people dropping them all the more painful to watch.

This guy drops the iPhone on purpose, but it doesn’t make it any easier to see.

Regardless of the phones’ well-documented fragility, people are still flocking to buy them. Will you save up to purchase an iPhone X? Or are you happy enough with your current phone?

Dad Wakes Up To Discover His Daughter Gave Him A Brand New Look

Dad Wakes Up To Discover His Daughter Gave Him A Brand New Look

A young woman named Bree Telon, who lives in Buckeye, AZ, has some very excellent make up skills. All teens are actually required to watch 500 hours of YouTube tutorials in order to graduate now, so it’s not a huge surprise that she can do this:

Mashable reports that Bree was tired of using her own face as a canvas and found someone else vulnerable to her attentions: her passed out dad. He’s just sleeping, but as you will see, it’s the sleep of the dead. The RIGHTEOUS. This man is untroubled by dreams, he doesn’t shift or roll over, he doesn’t suddenly jump up in a fit of night terrors. He is Sleeping Beauty, especially once Bree is done with him:

Gorgeous! When Bree’s dad finally does wake up, he doesn’t even seem too annoyed with his new face, though she managed to glue his eyes shut while applying fake eyelashes. If I woke up with my eyelids glued shut there’d be a helluva lot more screaming, I’ll tell you that much. The video is hilarious, but people seem to be genuinely responding to Bree’s work, too:

A supportive dad will help his daughter achieve her dreams. An extremely tolerant dad can also work. 

Impressive, no?

We Just Learned What Owls Look Like Without Feathers And There's No Going Back

Generally speaking, knowledge is power. Why not learn as much as possible to become a more interesting, useful, and education person? You never know when certain information will come in handy. 

This clichéd wisdom, however, has its limits. Perhaps there are some areas we really don’t need to explore. There are things that can’t be unlearned once we’ve seen and absorbed them… And that knowledge may haunt us forever. 

Thanks to the Internet, we now know way too much about owls. 

It all began when entertainment writer and Twitter phenom Dana Schwartz noticed a particularly plump bird resting on boyfriend’s air conditioner in New York City. 

But the vigilant people of Twitter would not tolerate such bird body shaming without all the facts. 

All birds are beautiful, after all. 

That’s when Schwartz came to her senses. “I realized I had no idea what owls looked like without feathers,” Schwartz told Distractify.

So, she did some research: “The answer is…nightmares” she said. 

Graciously, she decided to share her important findings with the public. 

These findings left everyone rattled. So Twitter tried to make sense of it all.  

Who knew that cute chubby, owls were actually mutant dinosaurs of our nightmares?

Schwartz, herself, is not deterred. “I think they’re even cuter [now],” she says. 

Tragically, this information no one asked for spawned more photos of creepy, naked animals to haunt our nightmares. 

Cute animals will never be the same. You’re welcome. 

While we can’t promise any more frightening factoids about owls, we can suggest you absorb more of Schwartz’s wisdom in her book And We’re Off, available for preorder on Amazon

13 Airline Meals You'll Actually Look Forward To Eating

If you’ve ever flown for more than two hours by airplane and were subject to an entree that was more military ration than home-cooked meal, then you too understand why the $ 6 slice of cheese pizza sold out of a kiosk prior to boarding your flight may not be a bad deal after all.

Part of it is the difference in air pressure. Once we start gaining altitude, our olfactory senses are the first to go, and our tastebuds with them. The combination of cool, dry air in the cabin and the lower air pressure essentially numb our taste buds, and cause us to experience the exact same meal that could be quite tasty on the ground in a less than ideal manner.

Pay enough for your plane ticket however, and the chefs in charge of keeping you satiated a few dozen thousand feet off the ground will adjust their recipe to compensate for your lack of taste.

Call me when Taco Bell decides to open up shop in the sky.

These Stories Of Horrible Roommates Offer Some Red Flags To Look For Before Signing A Lease

Roommates. When moving somewhere, having one is taken into consideration for no reason other than to increase our quality of life. The average American spends roughly one-quarter of their paycheck on rent and utilities, and having that extra 12.5% of your income freed up by splitting the month to month costs of simply existing with someone seems like a no-brainer. That is, of course, until you hear the nightmare stories people have about roommates.

Thankfully I’ve had a pretty positive experience with all of my roommates in college, but not everyone I knew was lucky. The worst I’ve experienced was having a suitemate that you could smell through the walls. As bad as that was, I wasn’t the one that had to live with him, and my roommate and I were treated to several late night rants by his roommate and some very high-end air fresheners in our shared bathroom that said roommate also purchased as a form of mercy for us and anyone that visited the suite.

Others weren’t so lucky. Perpetual house guests, bad hygiene, fighting, late with rent, and letting filth pile up were among the dozens of nightmare stories I’ve heard from friends on the topic. 

User ShallowTits on Reddit asked the community, “What are ‘red flags’ for roommates?” If you’re planning on sharing a place with one anytime soon, you’re definitely going to want to add these to your list.

  1. The number one offender that all refuse to deal with is the Kidult

    Mom moves him in while he watches. Mom sets his room up while he stares into his phone. Mom shops grocery andcooks it for him while he complains he’s hungry. Mom fills the fridge with pre-cooked meals while he eats. Mom cleans up everything and leaves.

    Congratulations! Now you’re his mom.

    juicius

    This is my most hated kind of person. Unfortunately it usually ends up being men. My #1 red flag for male roommatesAND potential boyfriends is if they are going from their mommy to me. Because inevitably you become their new mommy which is fun in exactly zero ways.

    Then there’s the problem of learned helplessness. You’ll ask them to do X, Y or Z chore and they go “oh I don’t know how” or they’ll give a half hearted attempt to prove to you that they can’t do it, so that you’ll have to from now on, etc.

    I WILL NOT DO IT. I was not born with the ability to cook, clean or organize. I had to learn it on my own, and so do YOU.

    blahblahblah539771

    This. I had to teach my boyfriend, who is 4 years older than me, how to cook for himself, do dishes, clean, etc. when we first lived together (with other people) towards the beginning of our relationship a few years back. I love him to death, and he’s a lot better at domestic things now, thank goodness. But 25 years as an only child getting doted on by his mom really did a number on him. Gotta nip that nonsense in the bud early.

  2. Several Take The Opinion Of Their Favorite Roommate Into Consideration

    If your cat loves them more than it loves you.

    Sir_Jorbxnor

    No one will believe this, and it will get buried, but I want to share, so fuck it.

    My dog tried to warn us about my best friend’s ex.

    She was sitting on our couch (in my wife’s normal spot), and we were all talking in the living room. My chihuahua is the most meek, timid, antisocial dog I’ve ever had. She runs if the wind blows too hard. Well this timid dog, in the middle of all of us, ran up to the ex, jumped on her lap, and took a huge shit. Then jumped off and ran. It happened so fast that I assumed her asshole must have had road rash. Everyone just stared in amazement for half a second, before said ex flipped her lid.

    Fast forward six months, ex turned out to be a heroin addict that took my buddy for everything he had that wasn’t nailed down. Thanks, dog, you tried to give us a heads up.

  3. Of course you get the stray case that makes you wonder if you can scrimp enough change to not need a roommate

    Writes their name on their food in the fridge, and eats your food because you didn’t write your name on yours.

    yellowbythedozen

    This made me laugh. Has this actually happened to you?! (Not at university yet)

    enomancr

    Yeah this actually happened. Years ago, a co-worker was looking to move out of his parents house, and around the same time my GF and I were looking on moving in together. He talked us into renting a house so he could move in with us, which ended up being the start of a series of mistakes that would play out over the course of our one year lease.

    We each bought our own groceries, and we never took anything from him intentionally (might have used margarine he purchased for toast a few times if we were out of butter at best), but because of this he would write his name in permanent marker on everything he’d purchase, including each individual cheese slice in a pack. One day I had picked up a couple of steaks for the GF and I for a special dinner I was planning, and when I went to make them, there was only one left in the fridge.

    Turns out because I didn’t write our name on them, they was considered “free game”.

    yellowbythedozen

  4. One user tried to have others learn from his mistakes

    Oh, man. I have a couple, all gained from painful experience:

    • If someone, before they live with you, constantly comments on how clean your/someone’s place is, when in reality it’s just normal and not that clean at all, take this as a sign that you have very different standards of cleanliness.

    • A little more personal, but- if the person has a history of many friendships lasting less than one year (without excuses like moving or switching jobs), or seems to have a long trail of people that they no longer speak to (orall their old friends are described as crazy psychos), or seems like the greatest person in the world but inexplicably has no friends whatsoever.

    • If someone tells you who they are, listen. For example, when my old roommate said casually in conversation, “Yeah, my mom and my sisters don’t think that I’m capable of feeling empathy, like I’m a sociopath. They used to say that a lot.” The same roommate also once told me that she’s never felt guilt before, and didn’t know what it felt like (she’s almost 30). She also had a restraining order served on her a couple days after she moved in.RED FLAGS.

    • If friends of your potential roommate come to you and ask you if you’ve really thought this through, and mention that maybe you don’t know this person as well as you think you do, listen to those people.

    • If you’ve noticed that this person doesn’t seem to respect the property or personal space of others.

    Those are the biggest ones I’ve experienced.

  5. And this one is a lesson for the post-college crowd

    In my experience, if you live with a stranger, than sometimes there’s a mutual understanding to be on good behavior. You may never be close, but it may not be an awful situation, either. Sometimes it doesn’t work this way, but in my experience it does a surprising amount of time.

    If you live with a friends, expect every one of their flaws to go up by a multiple of at least 5x. They always are down to drink? Guess what, your house is going to be a party house. Is their car a mess? Guess what, your house is going to be a disaster? Is their homework always late? Don’t be surprised if the rent is late, too.

    And with family, make that 10 – 20x. I knew a guy who always on the lazier side that moved in with his cousin. He then proceeded to stop paying rent and looking for a job. Be very cautious moving in with family.

    HarrysonTubman

  6. This one starts as general advice and gets more specific as it goes.

    Kind of too late to call, but if there’s a fight on move-in day, the whole thing is going to be a fight.

    Also, if one person tries to impose a cleaning schedule or rotation. These things are always doomed for disaster I find, because then there’s documented blame to go around if one person slacks off, even if it’s for a good reason (overloaded with school work, extreme bout of sickness, works 12 hours/day, etc.).

    Finally, if she disappears for four hours and returns bragging about spending $ 200 on professionally done glue-on nails one day, then has her grandparents over the next day bringing food because she’s broke, she has absolutely no understanding of time or money and will not be able to empathise with you when you say you can’t afford the $ 10 it costs to buy a pack of toilet paper because your part-time Wal-Mart job barely covers your share of the rent and your bus pass. She will also eat your food despite labelling and try to flush hard stalks of celery down the toilet.

    Anna_Draconis

  7. Then there’s the in house social aspect of living with someone. Make it clear ahead of time if you’re looking for extended family or just someone to pay the rent on time.

    Drinking habits are a big one. If you have a roommate who’s alright sober but always a problem drunk, consider having to deal with that every time. I’ve had roomates who were great except their drinking was too much.

    Another is expectations. My old roommate thought we’d be that household that goes out every weekend and has grill nights. I just wanted someone to pay rent. While it didn’t cause major problems with me, our third roommate was roped in a lot of social events he didn’t like and caused a great deal of tension

    Lennsik

  8. One user was clearly more experienced than the rest and gave the most in depth advice in the thread

    Having had several roommates, in various housing situations (house, apt, dorms, single-roomie, multiple housemates), my advice would be:

    • At same job for 18 months or more preferably: This helps show financial stability and so you are less likely to get stuck paying extra shares of rent.

    • A reliable vehicle: You don’t have to help them get around.

    • Reasonably clean vehicle: How they keep their car is in my experience a good indicator of how they will keep their personal area.

    • Do you know them already?: Think of the thing that you dislike most about them. That thing they do, that even if they’ve been your best friend for 10 years, still makes your jaw clench. Can you live with that as a daily occurrence?

    • You will likely conflict over washing dishes, cleaning the bathroom, and groceries/food. Do you have any idea how they handle themselves on these things?

    • Would you be okay spending time with someone who matters to you while this person is physically present? I’ve had roomies who interrupt 1-on-1 conversations to put in their thoughts, have horrible odor that permeated the apartment due to only showering once every couple days, and listen to their music loud enough that it interferes with other housemates media usage or family/friend visits.

    • Do they have a shitty significant other that you’re aware of? You’ll have an extremely high chance of also being exposed to that person’s crap also like extra bathroom mess, bottles of stuff in the shower, their clothing sitting around or ending up in your washing machine (assume you’re rooming in a house), cigarette butts if they smoke, sex objects, and so on.

    I’ve had my share of horrible roomies who stunk, left messes, had a live-in partner try to piggy back off of their share of rent, disrespected my family, and straight up opt’d not to pay rent thinking I’d be stuck paying for us both. Hopefully any of this helps someone avoid the same.

This Is What 'Game Of Thrones' Characters Would Look Like If Tim Burton Created Them

Tim Burton films hold a special place in my childhood. I remember crying at the end of Edward Scissorhands and loving Batman Returns to death, especially when The Penguin bit that dude’s nose at a gala and when Michelle Pfeifer gets shot but doesn’t die because she has nine lives from magical cat powers, or something. I dunno, it was Tim Burton’s sh*t so it was pretty awesome.

Burton hasn’t put out the most stellar sh*t as of late, with his last really awesome movie being Sweeney Todd, but that doesn’t mean we can’t love the guy’s aesthetic, which is undeniable. 

And although I wouldn’t necessarily think that a Game Of Thrones series directed by Burton would be anywhere near as amazing as the brilliant production they’ve currently got on the air, I do wonder what Burton’s vision would be like if applied to these characters.

Which is why it’s so awesome that artist Xenia Rassolova decided to take popular GOT characters and give them the old Burton treatment for Obsev.

obsev

Here we’ve got Bran chilling with the three-eyed crow.

An animation student in Canada, Xenia definitely captured Tim Burton with these fan favorite characters: like Cersei and a pre-handless Jaime.

The mother of dragon’s here in full effect too.

No character list would be complete without Jon Snow, with his trust Ghost by his side.

Margaery Tyrell, looking exceptionally Corpse Bride-ish.

5

Samwell Tarly, gripping a book, as always.

6

And all-of-a-sudden-awesome Sansa, who’s probably watching you-know-who getting their face ripped off.

Oh yeah and the halfman himself, Tyrion.

8

This scary White Walker too.

9

And then the whole cast, posing for a group portrait.

They look pretty dour, even for Game Of Thrones characters, right? (h/t obsev)
