From the Annals of Too Much Time: An incredible movie mashup that creates a song (that rhymes! with a beat!) from bits of dialogue spanning TV and movies from the '20s onward. (Also try playing the game of "which movie is that from?" while you watch)

Will the Duggars inherit the earth? Is Jim Bob the new Genghis Khan? Scary!

Bored at work? Try getting inspiration from some of these Best Office Pranks of All Time. As the site aptly says, "Nothing says happy birthday like being an obsessive compulsive prick."
*
Just another reason to stay out of the water (ok ok, so these creatures are typically REALLY far down in the ocean ... but still!): the 12 Most Bizarre and Frightening Deep Sea Creatures.
*
Still, we shouldn't pick on deep sea dwellers just because they aren't stupidly cute. After all, some very gorgeous things can be quite deadly, such as these 13 unassuming poisonous plants.

From Jan: If you think you know your car facts (or at least can recognize cars based on several arcane-to-obvious clues), try your hand at this car quiz. (er ... I made a D)

Sure, the writer-director or actor-singer is nothing new. But a singer-wrestler?

Here is a list of 7 professional wrestlers who unsuccessfully tried to become musicians.

Sure, most of you will have seen the majority of these Eye-Popping Illusions, but I always find them fun. Someone in the comments posted a link to one in particular which I hadn't seen before, and I couldn't get over it. Too cool!
