Quokka Selfie

Selfies are nothing new, but taking them with a Quokka has become the latest internet trend. This small animal is about the size of a domestic cat, is herbivorous and mainly nocturnal. It can be found on some smaller islands off the coast of Western Australia, in particular on Rottnest Island just off Perth and Bald Island near Albany. The quokka has no fear of humans and it is common for it to approach them closely, particularly on Rottnest Island. Continue reading for more.

Whatever the shower thoughts may be, they get even stranger when you read about what other people are thinking. Continue reading to see more.

The Dress

Is this dress white and gold or black and blue? That is the big question the internet has been talking about. This dress image was first posted on Tumblr by Caitlin McNeill, a 21-year-old aspiring singer from Scotland, and it quickly became an internet sensation, with even celebrities replying with their thoughts. Put simply, it's just an optical illusion. Some objects reflect light at certain wavelengths, or colors, and the human brain determines the color of an object by taking in its reflected light.

You Had One Job

Another day, another internet meme. This time, we take a look at "You Had One Job," an expression used to call attention to perceived blunders made by individuals on the job. The earliest known mention of this meme can be traced back to the 2001 remake of the heist film Ocean's 11, in which the character Basher Tarr (played by Don Cheadle) scolds his team for missing a step that singlehandedly leads to the failure of an otherwise well-planned vault heist. In the example above, someone forgot how to spell "STOP". Continue reading for more.

Men of Reddit

Thanks to the semi-anonymous nature of social media, alpha males are able to confess to slightly embarrassing things they do in private, such as using a multi-tool exclusively to file their nails.

Product Dimensions Fail

Kinfine's Arm Chair might seem like a good deal at first, especially at under $90 shipped, but before purchasing something like this online (or from an app), make sure you check the production dimensions, or else hilarity may ensue. Despite its actual size, there are some adults, like John Sheffield, who says: "Honestly, it's actually quite comfy. I use it when gaming mostly because it can be closer to the TV than my couch. I don't have plans on returning it. Besides, I'm lazy and it wasn't terribly expensive." Product page. Continue reading to see just how big this chair really is.
