American Habits That Are So American

Someone on AskReddit got a fun thread going about the various American habits that Americans didn't realize were so American. Sometimes one has no idea how absurd their habits are, because they've been so normalized by the culture and society they're living in. The outside perspective can be quite eye-opening.

The Physics Behind Curveballs

Not everyone is made equally when it comes to baseball. Some people are pretty good at it, and some people (like me) are shockingly bad. And then there are people like Luis Arraez of the Minnesota Twins, who displayed such control of the ball in their game against the White Sox that he hit an incredible curveball, earning his team a home run. It's not magic that made this possible, it's physics.

Miniature Horses Are Still Allowed to Be Your Emotional Support Animal

You've probably heard that the rules concerning emotional support animals on airplanes are changing, after a few incidents including a hamster flushed down the toilet, a VIP turkey and a few dog bites. Now, all animals except for dogs, cats and miniature horses are banned from flying. Yep, you heard me right: miniature horses. If you're more interested in taking your doggo on board, check out this travel guide for your fur babies. But if you have equine inclinations, read on.

bald eagles stuck in sewer

The animals are always the first to know.

In what some are considering a bit of symbolism for our country going down the drain, two bald eagles in — you guessed it — Florida decided to hammer home that metaphor by getting stuck in a drain. With their talons feet from being washed away by the waste water below, the two eagles cried out for a help as a nation looks on in horror, powerless to do anything.

Many are probably wondering, how did those eagles get in that storm drain? What were they doing so close to that storm drain? Don’t they know that storm drains are dangerous? Don’t they know that just because a storm drain hosted a reality TV show that doesn’t make it a qualified world leader? Questions that, you know, could only be applied to a situation in which two bald eagles get stuck in a storm drain.

Luckily, authorities from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission intervened and rescued the trapped metaphor. One of the eagles was taken to Audubon Center for Birds of Prey in Maitland to treat its injuries. The other was released, presumably to search out more storm drains because no matter how perfect this metaphor is, it’s worth repeating over and over.

Kaley Cuoco Forced to Issue an Apology Because the Internet Has No Chill

The Big Bang Theory actress posted a photo of three decorated dogs to Instagram and her patriotic followers through a fit.

Her photo was obviously meant to be a cute act of patriotism, but some people don't have a life and decided to slam the actress for disrespecting 'Murica because two dogs were sitting on an American Flag.

The caption read, "Thank you @thepethandler for taking care of the squad while im out of town!" It was later removed.

George Zimmerman claimed self-defense when he shot and killed a young, unarmed man named Trayvon Martin in 2012. He was acquitted of all charges and now he's selling the gun as "a piece of American history".  

Maybe his confederate flag business isn't doing so well? 

Bidding starts at $5,000 and he is literally planning to use some of the proceeds to fight Black Lives Matter activists, or as he put it according to the video "fight [Black Lives Matter] violence against law enforcement officers".

Sit down Neil McCabe.

"It's just part of life, I think," proposes McCabe at one point, when he's confronted with the unavoidable fact that more than 130 people have already died from gun violence in the U.S. this year.

This is where Snow channels his inner GoT Jon Snow, and goes off in the most effective, yet vaguely stoic way possible.

"No, it's part of death, Mr. McCabe," responds Snow. "That's death. That's dead people, people who have died as a result of guns."

Stand up. Now leave Neil McCabe.

The Golden Globes Didn't Know the Difference Between America Ferrera and Gina Rodríguez

America Ferrara, known for her role in Ugly Betty got to kick off the anouncements of the Golden Globes nominees.

Uh.. wait, Golden Globes, why did you just say that was Gina Rodríguez? 
Gina Rodríguez was nominated for an award for her role in Jane the Virgin. There she is now!


via @JarettSays

No, no that's the same event as before. That's still America Ferrera!  

After being called out on the misidentification, TWICE, the Golden Globes' Twitter account seems to have deleted the offending tweets and started identifying America Ferrera as herself.

Neither actresses have commented but people are pretty mad about the mistake. Someone who's job includes knowing who celebrities are and Tweeting about them probably should have been able to figure it out. Or at least ask someone, or take one second to Google who was presenting the Golden Globes nominees.

People born after the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001 will never know that impact it had on those who experienced it firsthand and those who watched from around the world.

But this might give a slight glimpse into what happened that day.

A new virtual reality experience named [08:46] puts users in New York's World Trade Center as the tragic events of September 11 unfold.

The experience drops users in the North Tower moments before impact.

From the project's Oculus Share page:

Based on countless hours of research in order to try to properly recreate the atmosphere and dynamics within the top floors of the towers, [08:46] was designed and developed as a school project during three months by a six members team, working in close collaboration with two actors for mocap and voice acting.

You can download the project right here and try it out for yourself.
