The internet is a goldmine for wasting time, especially when it comes to memes and random images. Some users have come across quite a few painfully obvious signs that probably did not need to be put up. For example, putting a "Caution: Fire is Hot" sign right next to a scalding flame, probably isn't the smartest idea, but whoever happens to blow right past this sign, there's a nice fence railing to keep you safe from the heat.

Since anyone with an internet connection and access to Wikipedia can edit articles, it's no surprise that there have been some interesting changes over the years, like this one, on the first law of thermodynamics. For those who don't know, it's a version of the law of conservation of energy, adapted for thermodynamic systems. The law of conservation of energy states that the total energy of an isolated system is constant; energy can be transformed from one form to another, but can be neither created nor destroyed.

For those who haven't seen Mr. Bean, it's basically a British sitcom created by Rowan Atkinson and Richard Curtis, and starring Atkinson as "a child in a grown man's body". Bean rarely speaks, and the largely physical humour of the series is derived from his interactions with other people and his unusual solutions to situations. The pilot aired on January 1, 1990 and the rest is history. Recently, Photoshop gurus on the internet have decided to place Mr. Bean's face on famous characters, such as Wolverine.

YouTube can be an entertainment, learning, money making, and even a tutorial platform. Cara Brookins, along with her four children, followed the latter to build "Inkwell Manor". In 2008, Brookins and her four children (then aged 7, 15, 11 and 2) left her abusive husband in search of a better life. So, they temporarily found a tiny home outside of Little Rock, Arkansas, until a more permanent place could be established. Her initial plan was to buy a house, but they passed by a house ravaged by a tornado, and thought it would be a perfect project for the family. "Once I had bought all these supplies and they were all piled up, there was no way out. There wasn't enough money to pay anyone to put them together. There was no plan B. This was 2008, so YouTube was not then what it is now. There weren't really comprehensive videos or channels devoted to this sort of thing. But there's a lot of ways to frame a window or to put a foundation together. So, we would watch three or four videos for each stage of construction and then think, 'Which one of these is going to work the best for us?,'" recalls Brookins.

Dot Con: The Art of Scamming a Scammer is James Veitch's book that shows exactly what happens when you decide to reply to a scam email, and keep the conversation going for as long as possible. In the example you see above, the scammer appears to offer James an interesting proposal: a 10% cut of any gold he distributes for this person. This all sounds fine and dandy at first, but like most scams, they always require some type of payment before starting the supposed "business", which in this case is a hefty amount of gold. To keep things interesting, James decides to use code names, and even a simple, yet self-explanatory chart. Continue reading to see just how far the conversation got before the scammer realized what was going on.
