Christmas is just around the corner, and many have not yet started on their decorations. If you fall under that category, here are a few clever, yet lazy, ideas that may spark something.

The most common misconception about getting the perfect shot in photography is the need for high-end equipment, but in reality, being at the right place and time could yield an image that could make you internet famous, even with just a smartphone. For example, this teacher was snapped sitting in front of a projector, and having the words "help" projected directly onto his forehead. Continue reading for more perfectly timed images.
Star Wars props are nothing new, but this Han Solo Blaster Flask actually lets you shoot first. Modeled after the iconic weapon, but this geeky flask can be used to store 4.4-ounces of your favorite beverage, and the silver barrel even unscrews to become a 1.5-ounce shot glass. Unfortunately, IF Industries has not received official approval from Disney, so it may be a while until we see this product on shelves, if ever.

In the past, you'd actually have to wait until the day after Thanksgiving before Black Friday sales began, but this year, Walmart (and other stores) opened their doors at 6pm the day of. The craziness included battling for flatscreen televisions, toys, furniture, and of course, video games.

"What's the point in having online black Friday if everything is either out of stock or in store purchase only?," said one customer. Continue reading for more fascinating images from around the web.
Pioneered by California company Stroma Medical, that new medical procedure claims to turn brown eyes blue. This laser-based procedure works by eliminating the melanin - the pigment that also colors hair and skin - from the surface of the iris, thus allowing light to enter and scatter in the stroma, the fibers seen in light-colored eyes.

You're looking at the most expensive DeLorean DMC-12 ever, and rightfully so. This specimen was one of seven DeLoreans used on screen in the Back to the Future trilogy, or to be more specific, the car used in the third movie for the 1955 drive-in movie scene when Michael J.

The others are still owned by Universal Studios, and usually on display at the theme parks. Continue reading for more interesting photos from around the web.
Even if you've only called upon Uber one time, you have a passenger rating. In the same way that passengers rate drivers from one to five stars (one star indicates bad service and five stars indicates you were happy with the ride), every Uber customer is likewise assigned a score. Some drivers go beyond the call of duty to earn that five star rating, like this person who just so happened to have a service dog along for the ride. Continue reading to see more.
