What the hell would you have ever done with out Lady Punch, Sittin On The Toilet, Numa Numa guy, Techno Viking or Keyboard Cat!? You would have died of boredom years ago!
Well, grab the birthday candles because the first video ever posted to YouTube turns 10 today. ‘Me at the zoo‘ was uploaded by YouTube co-founder Jawed Karim (gold-diggers take note of that name, grab a pen and paper) on April 23, 2005 and the 19 second clip features him standing in front of some elephants at the San Diego Zoo.
I’m pretty sure that Jawed just stands in front of a golden palace filled with naked women riding around an infinity pool on elephants on his own private island now. Oh, how times must have changed for this man in the oversized North Face jacket! Anyway – check out the first video ever below!

First we had Facebook’s attempt to rep the gays (just in time for pride) via their new PRIDE emoji pack, and now some genius graphic designer pulled together this Instagram account showcasing their interpretations of what they think could better help the lesbian community be better-represented within the EMOJI REALM.
Check out their Instagram here for the entire collection. Would you use them?

!! OMG, life’s a game: HabitRPG !!

If you ask anyone who has spent countless hours leveling up and doing side quests in RPG games like Final Fantasy and World of Warcraft whether the time was well-spent, at best you would probably get a shrug of the shoulders. The impulse to play these games is often so embedded that the only conscious decision RPG gamers really get to make is when to stop.
What if you could channel your RPG compulsion into organizing something other than your character’s equipment and stats? HabitRPG has set out to apply everything you love about these games (leveling, quests, character building, character classes, pets, guilds, boss fights, etc.) to real life. Gain experience for positive tasks like exercising or finishing a work project. Lose health for bad habits like eating too much pizza.
People are using HabitRPG to quit smoking, be more creative, exercise more, call their mom more often, and generally be better. Give it a try and level up your real self a bit.
