Cockatoo Yanks Eyeglasses




Sid the cockatoo must consider it his job to remove Dave's glasses. He hates the eyeglasses! No, wait, Sid thinks it's loads of fun.  He's quite proud of himself! You won't be able to help but laugh at this prankster. (via Tastefully Offensive)

If Credit Card Commercials Were Honest



Roger Horton is back with another Honest Ad from Cracked. The truth about credit cards is that they work well if you use them perfectly. But the reddit companies make bank on the fact that people do not use them optimally. Human nature doesn't work that way. Sure, if you have the discipline to never use a credit card for something you wouldn't buy anyway, you'll be okay and rack up a good credit score. And then you'll have credit for emergencies. But it's so easy to get yourself into a debt spiral otherwise. And no one is perfect. Are there really credit cards that charge 24% interest? I thought mine was usurious at $17%, since my mortgage is 2.5%.

Figures Are Rounded

You're Eating at a Buffet Wrong



How do you get your money's worth at a buffet? The Food Network is here to tell us how we've been doing it wrong. See, buffet eating is a zero-sum game, and you have two have a proper strategy to win.

On the other hand, you can decide that eating out is not a competition, but an experience that you pay to enjoy. If you enjoy the food and the experience, then you've won, no matter where you are. If your local buffet restaurant is full of diners trying to "beat the house," the experience will not be great and the food is probably sub-par anyway. Maybe you should patronize a restaurant that gives you the good experience you are paying for. (via Boing Boing)

Would You Buy a Used Car from This Man?



Eugene Romanovsky has finally decided to sell his 1996 Suzuki Vitara. He made an ad for the car that you will enjoy.

Yeah, you want to buy this car after seeing the ad, but Romanovsky lives in Israel. I can't read Hebrew, but I don't think it's been sold yet. (via reddit)

Twerking Cat



You've seen how your cat gets ready to pounce on prey, whether real or toy: the head drops, the eyes dilate, and the hindquarters go into windup mode. Here we see Pusic (previously) putting that response to work. Shake that booty! Pusic's people spend a lot of time editing his voluminous video clips to bring you such entertaining productions. The soundtrack really makes it.

It's been twenty years since Mike Myers introduced us to Austin Powers, International Man of Mystery. Myers, director Jay Roach, Elizabeth Hurley, and almost all the cast got together to give us an oral history of the film. (via the A.V. Club)

We spent months bracing and preparing for the death of our daughter. But guess what? We weren’t ready. Royce and Keri Young made the decision to carry their anencephalic baby to term in order to donate her organs. (via Metafilter)

A woman tried to text her daughter, but she dialed a wrong number and instead the message went to a 35-year-old man. That's normal enough, but when he told her she had the wrong number, she did not believe him, and kept texting pretty much all day long. 

What Bullets Do to Bodies. The gun debate would change in an instant if Americans witnessed the horrors that trauma surgeons confront every day.
