To the delight of fangirls and most of Tumblr, someone by the YouTube name of John Smith created this impressively done crossover of two huge fandoms, Sherlock and Doctor Who.
I’m surprised the internet didn’t explode from all that cheekbone action.
Though there are some noticeable costume discrepancies, we can forgive Mr. Smith, because holy shit, this is really, really well done and obviously took a painstaking amount of time to get just right.
If this were an actual thing, I think I would die just a little bit. Or a lot. I would have to internet from the afterlife, because I would be dead. WHOLOCK4LYFE.
Cancer. The big “C” word that nobody ever wants to hear. Sometimes it can be held at bay and sometimes it can be cured, but for many of those living with it, it’s a grim sentence that doesn’t allow for one to be carefree.
So The Mimi Foundation decided to try a little makeover experiment to bring some of that carefree, lightheartedness back into the lives of 20 people. They only stipulated that the individuals keep their eyes closed for the duration of the makeover until the big reveal at the end, which showed some interesting and over-the-top makeup and hair choices.
Initially, the photographer captures looks of shocked, surprised, and confused faces, but as the cameras continue to record, you can see the individuals start to laugh as they’re let in on the joke.
Some have called it cruel and some have called it mean to tell people that they’re getting a makeover and do this instead, but in my opinion, it brings a levity just for a moment in their lives that they most likely haven’t experienced since their diagnosis.
The photos from the makeover have been published into a book and proceeds go towards the Mimi Foundation and their continued work with patients in hospitals.
WestJet Airlines, the Canadian airline group, is known for their fun Christmas pranks they play on unsuspecting passengers. But these pranks aren’t the regular everyday cruelty that one experiences with overpriced luggage fees and not enough elbow room of most airlines.
No, these holiday pranks are some of the best and merriest that you’ll see. Last year, they had a Christmas flash mob in the Calgary Airport and this year? Well, this year may be the best one yet.
They had a giant gift set up at the gate where you would come face to face with Santa Claus after scanning your boarding ticket. Santa would ask you what you wanted for Christmas and, to you, that might have seemed like the end of it. You would have walked away thinking, “Man, that was really cute and festive! Thanks, WestJet, you made my day a little better.”
Little did you know that at the end of your flight, all your dreams would actually come true.
High five, WestJet. Keep up the good marketing work. And, for what it’s worth, you’ve always been the least terrible airline to deal with in Canada.
This video was posted two years ago, but with Christmas just around the corner I thought it might be appropriate to show you one of the ways that the tree from the tree farm gets to your doorstep.
The video was taken in Oregon and has been making the rounds on Reddit again and shows a helicopter pilot “ruthlessly owning inertia,” as they put it.
Christmas Tree harvesting at Noble Mountain Christmas Tree Farm in Oregon. Pilot Dan Clark flying a Northwest Helicopters, LLC 206B3 Jetranger November of 2008. Oregon is the nation’s biggest producer and exporter of Christmas trees, selling about 7.3 million trees a year, more than twice that of No. 2 North Carolina.
The largest Christmas tree producer in the state is Holiday Tree Farms of Corvallis, shipping about 1 million trees a year. Manager Dave Silen says a shift toward more family gatherings this year could help sales. The holiday trees represent a $101 million industry in Oregon.
Dan Clark, you are worth every penny. Now everyone go decorate your tree carcasses in a delightfully merry nature.
Ladies and gentlemen, let’s give a big round of applause to Hiroshi Kajimoto, because the man is a genius.
If you live in a perpetually grey and rainy city like I do, then you know that you either wear a jacket with a hood or you invest in an umbrella. “But Nona, real Seattleites don’t use umbrellas,” you might be thinking. Well, this Seattleite does because I’ll be damned if I’m going to let the rain turn my hair into an unruly pile of fluff.
But oftentimes, my hair ends up getting stuck and pinched in the umbrella wire frame and that’s just a terrible feeling. How can I protect my hair if the very thing that’s supposed to be protecting me is hurting me? (I know, so dramatic, right?)
Enter the UnBRELLA. It places the structural part of the umbrella on the outside, so there’s more room for your head on the inside. Plus, no tangles with the wire! It also stands upright when you set it down, so it dries incredibly easily.
Yeah, I’ll take two, thank you.
The science of sound is an amazing thing, isn’t it? That these little waves travel through the air that originate from the same instrument, only to bounce off its surrounding and produce an entirely different wave coming back to you.
I think that’s how it works anyway. I’m no sound scientist or anything.
