Something feels different today… Not sure I can quite put my finger on it.
It’s as if there’s been a fundamental change in the way you can read this article. Almost like if you were to stretch the edges of a window either way, it would adjust to fit.

This is a definite curiosity, a Star Wars inspired sitcom pilot from the 70s that was promptly shelved and hidden in a vault till this Redditor got their hands on it.
How do I look?
Here’s a collection of older people wearing funny t-shirts. Do they know what they’re doing? I don’t think it really matters.
A force to be reckoned with
A group of drunken Australians challenged some cops to a dance-off. They lost. The next challenge, bare knuckle fist-fight, also didn’t end well.
What makes you dutiful
So Liam Payne from One Direction, when exactly did you lose your zest for the mega-pop-star life?
Hack the planet!
It’s a supercut of computer hacking in 90s movies. Ah Ah Ah! You didn’t say the magic word!
Your weird doodlings brought to life, within reason
Budsies is a US based toy company (or flipping dream-weavers if you want to be more exact) that’s taking childrens’ drawings and making bespoke genuine stuffed toys based on them.
