What's cool to you might not be cool to the next person, so make sure you really have a good idea what is in, and what is out.
If you're a collector of factoids in the format of picture-based reference guides, we have just the thing for you. Here's a bunch of fresh memes from r/coolguides to refresh your collection of weird bits of information you didn't know you needed (but might come in very handy one day). Check out last week's collection too.
It's truly crazy just how much of an impact one small decision can end up having in the grand scheme of things. Or maybe what we merely conceptualize as being a "small decision" on the surface level, is nothing of the sort. The universe is weird, and likes to keep us on our toes. Maybe that's the inherently fun part about living -- is not knowing what's coming around the corner, and certainly not knowing what a minor move will go on to cause.
Was "reading more" one of your failed New Year's resolutions? Well, we're going to let you in on a little secret: you don't have to buy books to indulge in the creativity of wordsmiths. Turns out that you can consume clever witticisms all over the internet. You just have to know where to look. Fortunately, the subreddit r/brandnewsentence makes that mission a little easier. It's a veritable hub of quirky writing that's been harvested from Twitter, Tumblr, and even the dreaded hellscape that is Facebook. We've put together some of their finest examples of creative writing, but there's loads more where these came from. Hell, they may even inspire you to get a little more funky with your own posts. Go crazy. We're here for a good time, not a boring time.
There are times when we look at a picture and straight-up have to pause. Our head tilts, eyes squint, and we wonder what in the world happened to lead this cat to get up onto an umbrella. There's no way to know, of course, since sometimes, all that we have is the picture. So, we are left with having to come up with our own story, and stories about these kinds of amazing pictures can never be covered in anything less than 1000 words.
As animal lovers, these kinds of pictures are our favorites, because there is nothing that we appreciate more than a creativity boost, and these pictures deliver inspiration like nothing else we've seen. And so we made it a mission to find these kinds of pictures every single week and share them with you so that you may enjoy some of that creativity and inspiration as well.
There's something just plain old spooky about discovering a hidden staircase or suspect deadbolt that someone at some point in history went out of their way to hide from everyone. In this case, we're encouraged by the fact that those scratch marks apparently indicate this was likely some tomfoolery. For some more gold from the world of Tumblr, check out this Tumblr post about how spiders rule the world's cranberry bogs.
Life looks a lot different now than it did even twenty or thirty years ago. As recently as fifty years ago, even scientists had a hugely different idea of how the world worked. And a hundred years ago? Screw that, no one wants to live in a world without functioning toilet paper or high fives. On the flipside, there's also tons of stuff that's way older than people think.
Learning something new every day is something most of us aspire to, but what if you had all the information organized in one little chart. That would make it much easier to learn wouldn't it? Luckily r/coolguides has infographics and charts to teach you anything and everything, so don't say we didn't tell you know, knowledge is power, so get learning. Take a look at more of our favorite cool guides from last week and give yourself a boost.
I bet you were wondering how to survive an Anaconda attack, or make an origami bird without people questioning your sanity. If this speaks to you in any way, these r/CoolGuides will have you prepared for anything, even zombies. Well maybe not zombies, but just about everything else you'll find a how to guide for. Check out our last favorite Cool guides to make sure your skills are sharp.
For the architect in every kid, finally they made a game where parents don't have to step on sharp pieces of plastic strewn about the floor. Minecraft as a kids game has given way to massive multi-year projects reconstructing cities to scale and pushing the boundaries of what is possible to create with some multi-colored bricks. So anyways, enjoy these Minecraft pics, videos and anything in between!
There are certain pictures that, when you look at, you feel absolutely speechless. Those pictures, a lot of times, are the most incredible ones. They make you think, they make you wonder about all the details that led to that weird, funny, beautiful, or simply wholesome moment. And words, even 1000 words, are not enough to describe them.
Those kinds of pictures are some of our favorites because they truly get our imagination running. So, every single week, we bring you a new collection of pictures like that in the hope that they inspire you as much as they inspire us, that they give you the creative energy that we all thrive on.
Fun tip for this week's list: not everything that is a leaf is a leaf.
