These are possibly the ultimate "famous last words". What could be better than watching people a second from complete disaster and wondering what could possibly be going through their head right now. r/Whatcouldgowrong has everything and anything for people watching other people be seconds away from joining the Darwin Awards.
Here in the United States, despite the wildfires and pandemic, temperatures slowly lowering and spook enthusiasts are growing excited. This year's autumnal festivities may not be as fun as previous years, but we can still have some skeleton-forward Halloween fun on the internet. And this gallery will help you do just that.
ATTENTION EVERYONE: the pumpkin spice latte is officially back at Starbucks, and we can't even. Like for real, PSLs are life you guys. In honor of such a momentous occasion, we've gathered up some of the most basic pumpkin-spice memes we could find to remind you all that it's okay to embrace your inner basic sometimes. We won't judge you.
So put on your yoga pants, light up your scented candles and grab yourself a freaking PSL.
That's right! Cuffing season is swiftly approaching. Whether you're seriously single, very committed or somewhere in between, these memes will get you pumped for the hard and wintry road ahead. Stay vigilant, friends. But at least you know that most likely before the season is up, you'll have someone beside you to keep you warm. Now if they stay past Groundhog Day is a completely different issue.
If you looked up during the past two nights, you might have noticed that the moon was bigger and brighter than usual. That's because this full moon was not just any old moon: we just witnessed a Hunter's Moon. This is one of the Native American full moon names that occur each month of the year, signalling a change in season.
These 12 full moons are named for the activity or people they target. Therefore, the Hunter's Moon occurs around this time that hunters should traditionally begin to hunt game in preparation for winter. Since farmers would have recently harvested their crops during the Harvest Moon that takes place in September, the clear fields and bright moon would serve for perfect hunting conditions.
Today, most people don't depend on the moon's stages to survive, but we can appreciate it's signaling of a change in the season, and if you're into it, the astrological meaning of the skies. Or you can just appreciate the beauty of the moon. If you didn't get a chance to see this years Hunter's Moon, check out these otherworldly photos that were taken from all over the world.
It's that time of year again, you're back at school, back at work, and ready to gorge yourself to stay warm as the temperatures turn colder. So we've got some candies we dare you to try, and some fail-safe chicken nuggets to wash them all down with!
Brunch-Flavored Candy Corn is Here
So Brachs has decided to give us our first 'dare candy' of the season in their new Brunch-Flavored Candy Corn.
Between Burger King, McDonald's, and Wendy's, who would win?
In one corner is McDonald's, the original creator of the McNugget, a name whose meaning flows deeply into the American psyche and pop culture with toys and phrases based around the juicy meat treat:
In another corner is the winner of 'freshest tasting burger' in my household, Wendy's, and traditionally known for its chicken, Burger King... who would reign supreme?
So the Burger King rankings were surprising, as they have the best chicken sandwich of the bunch (IMO), with a consistent meatiness that the others couldn't always deliver.
Okay, so it's wasn't Burger King... that's weird.
Could it be the Wal-Mart of restaurants, McDonald's? Or my homeboy of freshness, Wendy's?
With an overall winning score of 90.5 (out of 120 possible points), I leave it up to you to guess in the comments section below (before checking) as to who won the Nugget off: Wendy's or McDonald's????
Find out the actual winner here, and run your own taste test and let us know which YOU prefer, in the comments section.
Time to lace up your Taylor Swift-issue Keds, grab your retro backpack, and queue up your DVR so you don't miss these awesome new Science Fiction and Fantasy Shows on TV This Fall!
2. Hunger Games IRL at the Olympics
During the men's marathon on Sunday, Ethiopian long-distance runner Feyisa Lilesa pulled a Hunger Games moment and showed his support for the Oromo Protests in his home country by making a specific motion with his arms:
Showing the sign is highly political though, so when he spoke a press conference after the marathon he said what he risked with the gesture, "If I go back to Ethiopia maybe they will kill me," he said, according to the Sydney Morning Herald.
"If I am not killed maybe they will put me in prison. [If ] they [do] not put me in prison they will block me at airport. I have got a decision. Maybe I move to another country."
Like the Hunger Games, let's hope the people can rise above this oppression.
2. Donald Trump Breaks the Lie Barrier
Fact Check says Trump's First Ad Averages 1 Lie Every 4 Seconds. I can hear Hillary's slow golf-clap from here. Let's hope his next ad doesn't disappoint us either.
3. But Did You See the U.S. Women's Gymnastics Team on the Beach in Rio?
I'm just saying, I didn't know it was possible to get an 8-pack:
Segways, or jerk strollers as their known, have no place in our world, especially when they are attacking top athletes.
The awesome Usain Bolt had just won his crazy fourth 200-meter victory in the Beijing world championships and was taking an extended bow to the gathered fans. Then, tragedy struck bolt.
Or rather some camera dude on a Seqway.
Fortunately for the world, and for the fate of that cameraman, Bolt came out of it unscathed.
Though Bolt got up holding his leg around his Achilles, causing Jamaica to hold its collective breath, he seemed fine and continued jogging around the track and taking pictures with the crowd. That's good, because as long as no one got injured, the whole thing was hilarious because that photographer — he was on a Segway, which makes it at least 75% funnier.
