Semicolon tattoos

If you see someone with a semicolon on their body, here's what it really means

You may or may not have seen these drawings and tattoos of semicolons while browsing one of your social media feeds, but they contain a deeper meaning than you may think.

Success Kid

Success Kid is trying to get his dad a new kidney

Everyone knows this lovable little guy as "Success Kid", an internet meme that went viral nearly five years ago and still popular to this day.  Well, even memes grow up.  Sammy Griner, now eight years old, is asking for the internet's help.  His dad, Justin Griner, is trying to crowdfund his treatment and find a liver donor. At first, Justin's wife, Laney, didn't want to mention their internet-famous son during their fundraising because she wanted the focus to be primarily on her husband.  But then she figured mentioning it would add a positive boost and help her husband to get the treatment he needs.Keep Reading

XOXO

How 'X' became the universal symbol for a kiss

The letter X has become more than just the 24th letter in our modern alphabet throughout the years.  From crossing items off a list to X marks the spot, the letter X is also used to symbolize a common human interaction, the kiss. The Oxford English Dictionary's definition for the letter X says it can be "used to represent a kiss, esp. in the subscription to a letter."  These days, that doesn't just include letters and notes.  We sign off our text messages, emails, and event comments on social media sites with X's.Keep Reading

LEGO Death Star

LEGOLAND California creates their very own Death Star

That's no moon... That's a LEGO Space Station!  The folks over at LEGOLAND California are updating their LEGO Star Wars Miniland display in advance for the LEGO Star Wars Days on March 7th and 8th.  On March 5th, they will be unveiling a giant Miniland-scale Death Star, complete with a trench run battle. The LEGO Death Star was constructed from 500,000 LEGO bricks and captures the scene in the 1977 "Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope" in which Luke Skywalker bravely guides his X-wing fighter through heavy combat to destroy the deadly mega-weapon. Hopefully LEGO has hidden the Death Star plans out of reach from the Rebellion this time!Keep Reading

Snow shoveling

Snow Shoveling Life Hack

Live in a state (or country) where it snows heavily?  Luckily I don't, I get beautiful weather all year long.  In fact, it's 80 degrees right now.  Yeah, be jealous New England and Midwest America.  If you do happen to live in a region where it snows heavily, check out this awesome life hack by Joshua Jordan.  He's also an illusionist/magician, so there may be some dark forces at work here.  Hopefully this will help some of you not kill yourselves this winter.

Hair gel, shaving cream, and toothpaste

Best Advice

One time in 5th grade, I had this teacher who gave us all bottles like this and she told us to squeeze it all out and, of course, we were like "fuck yeah" and did it.  Then she said, "Now, try and shove it all back in the container."  Of course, we all tried, and then stared at her confused.  When we all obviously gave up, she said:
"In the moment, you were so consumed with what you were doing that you didn't realize the mess you were making.  Then, after it was so quickly and easily poured out, you realize it is impossible to put it all back in.  Remember this for the rest of your lives when it comes to the words that come out of your mouth."
