Take a seat because that toilet isn’t nearly as disgusting as the hand towel.

TIME magazine talked to Charles Gerba, a professor of microbiology at the University of Arizona, to get the dirty truth about what’s the grosses thing in the bathroom. Turns out, you’re probably touching them in hopes of getting cleaner. But you’re wrong. Dead wrong. Nothing is safe. Germs everywhere.

According to Gerba, the top five grosses things are:

  1. Bathroom Towel because bacteria grows in moist conditions, especially in things that, like, never get washed.
  2. Toothbrush Holder — Again, because you never clean that thing.
  3. Kitchen Sponge — There’s a reason you don’t like touching that thing and it’s because it’s filled with bacteria. You want something you can wash, like a brush.
  4. Cellphones — You probably already knew this because Japan is putting those smart phone wipes in bathrooms.
  5. Supermarket Carts — I can’t even read this quote from Gerba — too scary— so you have to: “Almost 100% of them are home to E. coli because people are constantly touching the handles after holding raw food products.”

You can read more about the millions of tiny things that’ll make you sick and kill you over at TIME, but I don’t see why you’d want to. The germs are everywhere. We’re all doomed.

Clown of the Day: Twitter Is Laughing at Pennywise’s New Look in the “It” Remake

They all float down here. Well, maybe not all of them float.

People don’t really like remakes — despite the fact that Hollywood keeps making them because people keep seeing them. But one thing audience’s really don’t like is a remake of a movie from their childhood (see: Ghostbusters).

The duel VHS tapes of It, the four-hour long made-for-TV miniseries based on Stephen King’s bestseller, was as much a staple of sleepovers as Totino’s pizza rolls. However, now that we’re staring down the barrel of a 2017 remake, people are starting to worry.

Entertainment Weekly released a good look of the new Pennywise, the clown made famous by Tim Curry, who basically made It the classic it is, and people aren’t exactly feeling it. Airing their grievances on Twitter, fans expressed more laughter than terror towards the demonic clown. Here are some of the best reactions.

If you spot a python on the golf course, you should probably go to the next hole. Too bad no one told this wallaby that there's a snake in the grass.

According to Yahoo, a 13-foot python was spotted on a golf course wrestling a wallaby on the 17th hole of the Paradise Palms course in Queensland, Australia on Saturday. The days of the golf clap are over. Now is the time of the golf hisssssss.

"It had (the wallaby) in a vice-like grip and it was swallowing it," said Robert Willemse, golfer and witness, who later heard that the python finished the job.

Willemse went on to say that while wildlife is common in the area, giant snakes were not. 

"It looked like it might have dropped out of a tree, got a hold of (the wallaby), then there was a bit of a struggle and it rolled into the middle of the fairway."

Is no place safe from these monstrous snakes?

Books? Check.

Pencils? Check.

Glock Pistol? Check.

When it’s time for back to school shopping, it’s good to have your priorities straight, and Liberty University would like you to add “gun” to your shopping list.

Look, Liberty University loves all the amendments the same but loves one just a little bit more than the rest. See if you can guess which one. After permitting students to carry guns to campus and encouraging students to take a class on obtaining their concealed-carry license, Liberty University is installing a NRA-approved firing range on campus. And they’re the first college to do so.

via GIPHY

According to Yahoo, the University filed for a permit earlier this week to build a “nationally recognized, full-scale shooting, training and competition center,” and the NRA offered to help build it. "Last fall, the school's stance on guns attracted national headlines when Jerry Falwell Jr., president of the Christian school, encouraged students to get their concealed carry permits in order to defend themselves against what he said was the threat of armed Muslim attacks," writes Yahoo. His remarks come in conflict with the fact that white terrorists are responsible for more violent crimes on American soil.

He also went on to say this terrifying bit of Islamophobia, “I’ve always thought that if more people had concealed carry permits, then we could end those Muslims before they walked in and killed them.” So you can kind of guess where this dude’s coming from when it comes to guns.

Liberty University also helped finance the Kirk Cameron-vehicle Saving Christmas, which sits at #2 on the IMDb Bottom 100 — even though it barely qualifies as a film.

Anyway, America 2016.

Driving is the type of thing like chewing gum and walking, you can do two things at the same time. Whether it’s putting on some make up or reading a book, the perfect time to do something else is when you’re driving.

Just ask this guy, who decided he needed to live stream his race down the freeway, so followers could get a glimpse at him mugging for the camera and see his car go real fast. What’s weird is that while he was doing those things, he crashed his car. Really bad.

via Latest Funny Stuff

This driver, a 20-year-old from Providence, RI, is now in critical condition, and you can see the whole thing right up to the crash on YouTube because he was streaming his collision course.

It’s not like people driving and looking at their phone endangers other drivers. It’s not like driving is an incredibly dangerous activity that no one seems to respect at all.

Wait, what am I saying? Please stop playing at your phones when you’re driving.

Melbourne's Federation Square has been taken over by an 11-and-a-half metre (37.5-foot) baby named 'Ping Pong' made by Australian artist Felipe Reynolds:



The artist wanted the baby to "incorporate everybody in it," he said, "I wanted it to not be white, not be black, not be female, not be male - just be as inclusive as possible, so everybody can relate to it."

According to the Fed website:

"Interaction is key to experiencing this unique inflatable. Through a camera rigged to The Atrium screen (operating between 7am – 10pm) members of the public will find themselves part of the installation. Upon interaction the frame will be flipped horizontally, so it looks like the baby is sitting on the ground and the visitors become the human mobile. On weekdays from 10am – 4pm, during the school holidays, play with the baby via 4 giant rattles (1.5 meters) based beneath the inflatable."



Well, I think we can all relate to it being creepy, if nothing else.
