Yes, even the most patient of professors lose their cool at times, but to prevent outbursts from happening, they do things like putting a funny twist on the "Name:" section of a worksheet. Other examples include: starting a Power Point presentation with an interesting cover sheet, reading RateMyProfessor reviews out loud to the class, using a gigantic stick instead of a laser pointer and lots more.

When the Batmobile meets a Corvette, you get something that looks like Callaway's Corvette C7 GT3-R. This stealthy vehicle sports a carbon fiber widebody, a huge air diffuser, complete with burnt gas vents in the side sills, and is powered by a 6.2-liter V8 Chevrolet engine generating 600-horsepower, mated to an X-Trac six-speed sequential transmission.

China is known for their elaborate knockoffs, and one of them is this MacBook Air, which features a unibody design. If you're not able to tell the difference at first glance, everything changes when you switch it on, as it's actually running Windows 7 Ultimate, and not OS X. This $328 laptop is powered by an Intel ATOM D2500 (1.86GHz), 4GB of DDR3 RAM, a 500GB hard drive, and sports a 14-inch LED HD Screen display (1366 x 768). Despite these lowly specs, it still has a 1.3-megapixel camera for video conferencing as well as 802.11b/g Wi-Fi connectivity. Continue reading for more fascinating images that you probably haven't seen before.
Brick and mortar businesses could either advertise online, or come up with a clever chalkboard sign in hopes that they go viral online. These chose the latter, but unfortunately, many do not include their logo or store name on these signs. First up, we have a pilates studio or a cafe that decided "Pie and Lattes" was far more interesting. Next, a bar that touts itself as a "3D Tinder". Continue reading for more.
So far, there are 46 U.S. states that have been texting while driving, but having a highway billboard stating "texting while driving kills" and offering driving tips by texting is a bit strange. Unfortunately, that is just one of the many unintentionally ironic things you'll see on a daily basis. Others include: a 50 Cent album priced at $.50, a bird resting on a "no birds" sign, crushed tomatoes in a smashed can, and lots more. Continue reading to see them all.
Despite having no idea on how to use a computer, you'll often find cats either sitting on a keyboard, or just staring at a display, in hopes of something interesting happening. That is just one example of cat logic that makes absolutely no sense. Others include: crawling into empty cardboard boxes instead of their new playset and trying to fit in spaces that are fare too narrow. Continue reading for more.
New Horizons managed to capture a beautiful sunset on Pluto from 11,000-miles away. On the top image, you can see Hillary Montes on the western skyline, with Norgay Montes in the central foreground and the frozen Sputnik Planum to the east. The entire image measures just 780-miles wide, and shows the complex layered haze of Pluto's atmosphere. The bottom image depicts dusk highlighted with fog - a near-surface haze cut by shadows of hills and small mountains. The image is 115-miles across. Continue reading for more fascinating photos.
Set to open next year at Cedar Point in Sandusky, Ohio, Valravn Birdseye is set become the world's tallest, fastest and longest dive coaster. It will "swoop 223 feet down the 90-degree drop, free falling at speeds up to 75mph through three inversions." Shattering 10 world records in the amusement park industry, it's most certainly not for the faint of heart, but if you want to ride the beast before it opens in 2016, simply click the virtual video above for a quick thrill. Continue reading for more interesting pictures.
Vantablack is a substance made of carbon nanotubes and is currently the blackest substance known, absorbing a maximum of 99.965% of radiation in the visible spectrum. To be more specific, it's composed of a forest of vertical tubes which are "grown". When light strikes vantablack, instead of bouncing off, it becomes trapped and is continually deflected between the tubes before eventually becoming heat. This substance has many potential applications, including preventing stray light from entering telescopes, and improving the performance of infrared cameras both on earth and in space. Vantablack may also increase the absorption of heat in materials used in concentrated solar power technology, as well as military applications such as thermal camouflage. The emissivity of Vantablack and scalability support a wide range of applications Continue reading for more interesting photos.
Encountering an irate person at the Apple Store isn't too much out of the ordinary, but seeing someone bring their miniature pony along most certainly is. On a related note, did you know that Apple Stores see a total 1-million visitors per day worldwide? In comparison, Disney theme parks only get about 130-million visitors per year to the 365-million looking for new gadgets. Apple's Nanjing East store in Shanghai is the world's busiest, with 25,000 visitors per day. Continue reading for more bizarre things people have seen.
