Well, it’s nice to be sitting here without the Sunday blues on this lovely, sunny evening. Not that I hate my job or anything, I totally don’t, but Sunday is just one of those horrible days where there’s nothing on television and your weekend is over, you know? I’ve always felt like this about Sundays, ever since I was little and getting bathed and doing homework before school on Monday. However, there’s yet another Bank Holiday here in the UK so we’ve got a nice three day weekend to enjoy.
Here are some links to take you into your Monday, wherever in the world you are. As usual, none of this content is my own because it has all been handpicked especially for you.
Why rock/paper/scissors is stupid:
This is a really great article about how people, especially women, are expected to smile and be polite when their space boundaries are challenged, but instead they should be firm and assertive to space invaders. I would warn anybody to be cautious in how this is achieved because obviously it’s a dangerous and scary thing to do, however space is a right and nobody has the right to take it away from you for their own gain.
I really don’t like Get Off My Internets because, well, it’s mean. However, Bloggers Anonymous is an infinitely better idea and I’m hooked already. It’s such a kind thing to do and just emphasises how lovely the blogging community can be. (via Nova)
Here are twenty weird items that really do exist. I absolutely love the juice box cameras, so cute.
“An idea came to me” and lots of other really cute comics.
Cat desperate for hugs:
Woah. Shark skin is made up of tiny little teeth. You can have a look at what shark skin looks like under a microscope here, as well as seven other ordinary objects that look pretty awesome that close up.
I’m not really sure if this tattoo is real but I love the idea of it. Although, I can’t image it’d be fake if a company have put their name to it surely?
So, you know the internet sensation Grumpy Cat who is absolutely fecking adorable? Well, it turns out that Tardar Sauce (her real name) has a form of dwarfism and that is why her face looks so grumpy. Here are some other cool facts about Grumpy Cat.
Holy shit. A person was swallowed by a hippo and survived to tell the tale. For reals. Waaaah. Craziest thing ever.
A dog really enjoying an ice lolly:
Ok, I don’t know all of the games on here, but these examples of why video games can be damn ridiculous at times are hilarious.
We all know that it’s really cute when our dogs stick their bum in the air and give a little wiggle to show that they want to play, or when our cats stalk around the furniture ready to pounce on a toy mouse. Well, it turns out that lots of animals are sneaky sneakersons and here are some great photos of them snooping around.
A really sweet person who happens to live in the same town as me (what are the chances of stumbling that?!), made a lifejacket for his fantail goldfish because he couldn’t swim. Adorable.
Star Wars Stumble: Indiana Jones meets Star Wars.
Silly, but funny:
What happens if you find a photograph of a squirrel on the internet and you’ve got lots of time on your hands? It turns into a superhero squirrel, that’s what.
I love this idea – a photographer’s girlfriend ‘leads him around the world’. It’s really clever. This girlfriend seems to have lots of great clothes and an array of nail varnishes so between that and the trip around the world, they must have plenty of money. I also really like that the last photograph is in Ikea, like it’s an important world destination.
Ever wondered what a killer whale crossed with a penguin might look like? Or a sloth and a hawk? Well, now you can find out with these brilliantly photoshopped animal photographs. Guinea pigs must be super easy to meld with other animals because there are a lot of them on here.
Cat Laws – these are so incredibly true. Most of these are reasons why I absolutely love cats.
The cuties for today – stega-tortoises:
