Perfectly Timed Disaster

More often than not, photographs don't quite turn out the way we'd like them to, but sometimes things do work themselves out. For example, photographers trying to capture an image of the jet above probably didn't know that at least one of the pilots was going to eject due to an emergency or what not. Another example would be trying to photograph food, only to have a seagull come and snatch it right out of your hand during the photo. Continue reading to see more.

Baby Sleeping in Camera Bag

Let's face it, we all have some embarrassing baby pictures, but these photographers wanted to at least make them conversation pieces. So, they decided to place their tiny ones inside camera bags and backpacks, which are often lined with padding for a host of accessories that one might need to bring on location for a shoot. Some babies were so comfortable they were captured snoozing, rather than smiling for the camera. Continue reading to see more.

High-Voltage Ejector Bed

Inventor Colin Furze has finally completed his high-voltage ejector bed, which comes complete with flashing lights on top, a high-powered ejector mechanism below and a train horn. As power is increased during various test runs, the bed ejects you further into the room. Fortunately (or unfortunately), you don't get a shock of electricity to go along with it.

Perfectly Timed Photo

Timing is everything, and when it comes to photography, that could mean waiting hours for the moon to align with a passing sailboat or just taking pictures at an air show and having a bird photobomb you. One thing's for sure, you don't need expensive equipment, though we do recommend a modern smartphone camera at the very least, to ensure your shots are haze-free. Continue reading for more.

Funny Coincidence

Nintendo may not have modeled the N64 after a koala, but when you look at it upside down, the case does slightly resemble the animal, or so the internet thinks. As most of you already know, there's an official term for this, pareidolia, which is a psychological phenomenon involving a stimulus wherein the mind perceives a familiar pattern - like a face - where none actually exists. Continue reading for more everyday coincidences that cannot be unseen.

Funny Animal Using Camera

There are skateboarding dogs, cats that can play keyboards, and apparently, animals who just might have been camera operators / photographers in past lives. Above, we have a koala that seems to have taken over a television broadcast, and filled in for whoever was there before. Not every animal is capable of using such complex equipment, but having a pet that knows how to operate a point-and-shoot camera would be good enough for most road trips. Continue reading for more.

Funny Random OCD

While most wouldn't think too much about going over the $39.99 amount at a gas pump, there are a few who would have dilemma on their hands if the gallons pumped was also a perfect 10-gallons. Or, slicing a pre-cut pie in a different direction is nothing out of the ordinary, but it's just annoying enough to catch the attention of perfectionists. Last, but not least, city workers who didn't line up the lines when replacing the manhole cover just seems out of place. Continue reading for more funny examples.

Fried Bacon Seaweed

Bacon lovers rejoice! Researchers at Oregon State University have created a new type of seaweed that tastes just like fried bacon. Not even kidding. The strain is based on a type of dulse - a common sea vegetable popular in Asian cooking for its high protein content. This red marine algae is not only fast-growing, but super nutritious as well, packed with up to 16% protein by dry weight as well as being an excellent source of minerals, vitamins, and antioxidants. Continue reading for another picture of the seaweed and more information.

Dogs Giant

No, you're not looking at a giant dog running towards the camera, just a clever photography trick known as forced-perspective. This technique employs an optical illusion to make an object appear farther away, closer, larger or smaller than it actually is. It manipulates human visual perception through the use of scaled objects and the correlation between them and the vantage point of the spectator or camera. Continue reading for more perfectly timed photos that transform normal dogs into giant creatures.

Sleepy Kitten

Humans may require at least a bed or couch to sleep comfortably, but these photographers captured a few kittens who can snooze just about anywhere, including in the middle of a book. On a related note, did you know that on average, cats sleep about two thirds of every day? That's right, and if you do the math, it means your 9-year-old kitty has slept away about six years of life. Chances are, they will find a favorite napping spot and go back to it each day, regardless of if they outgrow it. Continue reading for more.
