20 Celebrities and Their Historical Doppelgangers

Granted, a couple of them are a stretch. But holy crap a lot of these celebrities look creepily like these historical figures! (And is it just me, or does Napoleon Bonaparte get a lot more attractive after being compared to Trent Reznor?) Christian Bale & A Civil War Soldier: Keanu Reeves & Paul Mounet: Michael Douglas & George […]

The Pixar Theory

Internet nerd John Negroni has blown my mind. While the idea that all Pixar movies exist within the same universe isn’t entirely new, he has taken it a step further and postulated The Pixar Theory: a detailed proposition that all Pixar characters are part of the same universe, backed up by a believable timeline that […]

Immortalize Yourself with a Doll Clone

So apparently, getting a mini-me made of yourself is a thing in Japan. A company in Akihabara called Clone Factory urges women to preserve that special moment in life (e.g., your wedding day) with your own special Jibun-san [自分さん], which roughly translates to “Me.” The dolls are modeled after not only your face, but also your makeup, hair, and […]

Crazy Fan Theories That Make Sense!

A few of the theories sound downright […]

Because I’m Sure I Can’t Be the Only One

There are some things I find weird about myself (sometimes, in conjunction with others in my life) but I know there must be others out there who do the same…right? I occasionally weigh myself before and after pooping just to see if there’s a difference. (It’s never as much as I expect or hope.) Every few […]

Worst Case Scenarios

Lately I have been plagued with awfully vivid nightmares — ones that jolt me from sleep and keep me up the rest of the night. Take the one from a couple of nights ago, for example: J is killed in a horrific accident. At his funeral, his parents and I get into an argument regarding […]
