Oh boy, do I know some people who think they have the best ideas ever. And once they have them, they scheme and plan how to make it the best it can possibly be. Whether it’s throwing a party, or inventing a new product, they all seem great on paper. Except there’s one very big problem. They never stop to think if their big idea is smart to begin with! Here’s 22 examples of the principle that the best laid plans don’t amount to much if your idea is flawed. Very flawed.
1. So you bought a toddler a motorbike?
2. HAHA. Grocery store shortcut.
3. Pretty sure that dance is a bad idea. He likes rap music.
4. Ya…there’s no slip and slide there.
6. Well there’s a problem.
7. Daring escape = horrible idea.
8. I…just…I don’t know what to say.
9. OMG. Face slap.
10. Hey guys, there are windows in that pool.
11. License and registration please.
12. Well going in for the kiss didn’t work out.
13. Pizza & cookies (& Jack).
14. I know I make up lyrics but come on.
16. Ya, that idea didn’t work out.
19. El stupido.
21. The best laid plans.
Well there you have it. Irrefutable proof that just because the idea looks great on paper… well you know the rest. H/T BuzzFeed If you thought these were as hilarious as me, please share with others below.
Listen. I could sit here all day and rattle off a list of things that make your hipster lifestyle decidedly uncool, but what I’m really about to say is going to rock your faux-original world. While you and your mustaches and vinyls and short shorts strut around sipping lavender-infused coffee, you’re all blissfully unaware of the fact that you’ve failed in your attempts to be misunderstood beatniks with a flair for originality.
Why’s that? Well, because your dads did it first. Don’t believe me? Just ask author and copywriter Brad Getty. He’s the mastermind behind a little book by the name of Dads are the Original Hipsters, and he’s here to shut your nonsense down. Eat your hearts out, first movers. Dad was moving long before you.
The book is essentially a compilation of legendary hipster dad photos that are presented alongside Getty’s painfully accurate (and at times NSFW) commentary. Here are a few of the best.
“Your parents had a non-traditional wedding before you did, and their marriage might not be legal to prove it.”
“Your dad sucked at his job before you did.”
“Your dad was a street artist long before you put up your first shitty wheatpasting.”
“Your dad went green before it was cool, and he has the t-shirt to prove it.”
“Original at everything since ’76.”
“Your original hipster dad and his crew of dirt balls.”
“Bill and Hillary Clinton were the original hipsters.”
“Your dad had hangovers, and the worst part was realizing that the mistake he made last night was making you.”
“Throwback Thursday to when your dad was a DJ before you were, and he played music so obscure that you’ve never even heard of it.”
“Hipsters, your shit-whip will never compare to your dad’s badass ride.”
“Fall/winter 2014 look book.”
“Your dad was a struggling indie artist before you were.”
“Selfie game king since ’76.”
I’m sorry that you had to face the reality of your fraudulent existence this way, hipsters, but it had to be done. Take this opportunity to re-evaluate your position in the world, get a handle on those convoluted political opinions that you don’t actually understand, and start drinking regular espresso like a normal person. Because that’s exactly what you are — normal.

There is always more to life than what’s on the surface. What you may see at first may not be the whole story. Take these photos, for instance. At first, it might seem like a totally normal scene… Then, you will realize what story the shadows are telling. Two entirely different things are happening in these photos. Photography focuses on the relationship between light, darkness, focus and perspective. By changing something small, the stories change. Check them out, see if you can discover what’s going on here.
1.) Strangers or lovers?
2.) Everyone is hiding a monster inside.
3.) Oh noooooo.
4.) Hey, I like your tights.
5.) Looks good on you, man.
7.) Is she doing laundry for 2?
8.) I never saw this shadow coming.
9.) I was going to work out, then I saw this.
11.) Music is everywhere, even when you can’t see it.
12.) Decide what you want to do, bird.
13.) Umm. Oops. 🙂
14.) This may be the world’s first cat-dog.
16.) This mean trash can is reminding you to recycle.
17.) The magic carpet adds to her presentation.
18.) Stop! He’s got a… Gatorade.
19.) What a cute little beast.
20.) It’s not a coincidence that this is a wedding ring.
21.) Looks like they already are.
22.) During the day it’s just a statue…
At night it’s something else.
23.) Vote for WHO?
(H/T Bored Panda) The next time you take a picture, don’t focus on the light or your subject. Look at the shadows… they could be telling an awesome story you were never aware of. Share these awesome photos by clicking the button below.

By now, you’ve probably watched Adele’s new music video for her single “Hello” a thousand times, but we invite you to watch it once more. This time, it’s narrated by none other than Sir David Attenborough.
During an interview on BBC Radio 1, DJ Greg James asked the legendary narrator to give the first minute of Adele’s video his signature voiceover treatment. He was hesitant at first, because he didn’t want Adele to be angry with him. To quell his fears, the DJ said, “I think Adele would probably love this more than anything in the whole world.”
I would pay good money to listen to Sir David Attenborough’s take on pop culture every day. His personality is warm and his voice is iconic. Thanks for always keeping us entertained, Sir David!
