Yup. As fate would see fit, it just so happens you've only scratched the surface of highly refined, impressively customizable, Netflix-binge-a-thon experience.

Netflix usually operates with a user-navigation system configured such that you can search for shows and/or movies by titles or common genres--Romance, Action & Adventure. Thing is, there's a hidden way to work around this.

The URL for something simple as 'Documentaries" is http://www.netflix.com/browse/genre/6839; but by changing the numerical segment at the end the URL you can discover 'Controversial Foreign Movies' (2273) and a whole mess of other uber specialized genres.

This little Netflix hack opens up a world of possibilities, and all cheesy slogans aside, there's about to be something for everyone looking to kick back and check out with this clutch streaming service.

Plain and simple, Kuli the one-eyed rescue cat is living the life out in Honolulu, Hawaii.

Kuli out for a nice paddle:

Kuli bides his time swimming across Hawaii's warm bright blue waters with his human surfer friends.

Kuli just trying to kick it for a cool minute:

A photo posted by @kulithesurfingcat on

Kuli's owners, Alexandra Gomez and Krista Littleton, tell the Daily Mail that Kuli's been a surfing beach bum for almost a year now. Gomez and Littleton adopted Kuli when he was just 3-months-old and weighed a pretty pound.

Shortly after Kuli's adoption, he had to undergo surgery to remove an infected eye. Gomez and Littleton credit Kuli's clear comfortability with the water as result of his recovery process, which involved frequent bathing.

David Bowie's back as an exceptionally tortured artist with his latest music video/creepy masterpiece "Lazarus", directed by Johan Renck.

To put it lightly this is a highly disturbing four-minute montage of what the most dramatic operation room might look like behind the curtains. But Bowie's singing, and he's a genius so it's totally chill.

Chock-filled with convulsions, manic saxophones, and hospital beds, which have always been kind of creepy in themselves; you've got to give it to Bowie for returning to the scene with a bang.

This track's a glimpse off his new album, which comes out tomorrow, 'Blackstar"' and yes, on his 69th birthday. F*ck yeah David Bowie.

The video's director, Renck, also added, "one could only dream about collaborating with a mind like that; let alone twice. Intuitive, playful, mysterious and profound… I have no desire to do any more videos knowing the process never ever gets as formidable and fulfilling as this was. I've basically touched the sun."

Last November this cat set the internet ablaze after being spotted on a supermarket shelf in South London, with an unparalleled pokerface.

Well, this cat's back. Yes, the exact same one, in the exact same store.

Here's the photo from last November, in which he's wearing the same don't-fu*k-wit-me expression.

It's time for Sainsbury to face the cold, hard, and definitely furry truth; this cat ain't going anywhere.

Cards Against Humanity, rather infamous for its mildly offensive card game, shared an open letter to its website for the holiday season that pulls on all the heart strings.

"This year, 150,000 people signed up to receive Eight Sensible Gifts for Hannukah from us.

Like many of the physical products we buy, most of these gifts were made in China. This is something a lot of companies don't like to draw attention to, and as a result Americans often don't see the labor that goes into the things they buy. But we've always viewed the way our stuff is made as a part of who we are.

Our printer in China has grown with us from a small business to a huge operation, and it's important to us to go above and beyond our obligation to the workers who make our game. While our factory provides excellent wages and working conditions, Chinese working conditions are generally more strict. This year, we used the money from one day of our holiday promotion to give our workers something very uncommon in China: a paid vacation.

The printer didn't have any formal procedures for paid vacations, so we bought 100% of the factory's capacity and paid them to produce nothing for a week, giving the people who make Cards Against Humanity an unexpected chance to visit family or do whatever they pleased.

This doesn't undo the ways that all of us profit from unfair working conditions around the world, but it's a step in the right direction. Below yo'll find some thank-you notes and vacation photos from that factory staff shared with us."

That moment when you're sick and tired of logs, oh wait, alligators on the road, but you actually don't give a f*ck.

This biker's got some stones man.

Hong Kong just went next level with the fast food dining experience.


We associate Mickey D's with grease-soaked, hastily-fried, platters of 'do I really want the salad this time, or anytime though?'




Who would've thought McDonald's would've introduced classy presentations--we're talking burgers on cutting boards--fresh ingredients, for the freshest salads; and even insta-fame-worthy lattes with artful twists that'd color any hipster grateful.
