Back=to-school season is in full swing, and even though the end of summer pretty much stinks, heading back to class doesn't have to. Why? For starters, it's the perfect time to sport some apples and notebooks and maybe even a pencil or two on those nails.
Optical illusions can play some really weird tricks on our brains. We think we're looking at one thing and then... sike! It's something else. Honestly, what the heck. But you know the best type of illusions? The photograph kind, because they can be all sorts of awesome, strange and funny
We're all entitled to our own opinions, but food is arguably the best part of any holiday. See, eating our way through this sort of celebration is an automatic win-win-- we're happy, our stomach's are happy, everyone's happy.
We already know pups are super talented, especially when it comes to things like getting all "derpy" in photos or wearing pantyhose. You know-- the usual. But, like us, you might've been totally oblivious to the fact that dogs are also really into the surfing scene.
Just like going down the playground slide is a fun (and sometimes painful) way to revisit childhood, so to are swings. The thing about swings, though, is there's a risk factor involved from the get-go. You know that game where you swing and swing and then try to jump off and go really far? Or the one where you try to go super high? Sure it's fun stuff, but we have two words for you: fail central.
Recently we've been discussing the best things about summer, like Slip N' Slides and lemonade. OH yes. But with the good obviously comes the bad, and in this case, the really bad. Brace yourself folks, because we've scoped out some pretty awful sunburn fails we never want to experience. Oof.
It doesn't matter which way we spin it; breaking up stinks. (Unless, of course, you're the breaker-upper, in which case it's like a cause for celebration.) Either way, cutting the relationship cord has gotten a bit easier ever since text messaging hit the scene. As it turns out, break up texts can be hilarious.
It's no secret getting a job these days is pretty tough. So that's why it's more important than ever to stand out from the rest of your peers, and we're not just talking clever resumes. See, going the creative route on actual job applications is another solid way to guarantee you'll get noticed, whether it be going overly positive or just plain hilarious (we prefer the latter).
