If you've spent some hours of your life watching fail videos on YouTube, and lord knows I have, you probably know why doing a pole dance in a temporary tent is a bad idea.

$1 stand > $999 stand.

Reddit | JakesFriendsBrother

This guy's got a nice Apple computer. I heard you can buy an equally nice stand for these things for $999. This guy's stand probably cost a lot less, and it's perfectly functional.

All bases covered.

Reddit | codythisguy

It needs dirt, and water, and love.

While I encourage everyone to vote, there's a big difference between a candidate you'll vote for and one you'll put on your lawn.

Reddit | TryharderJB

So if you're desperately trying to figure out which one is the lesser of two evils, I can't think of a better way to express that than this.

From the looks of it, this photoshoot is supposed to be about the couple. But I admire the photographer's instincts.

Reddit | clousgh5

When you see a dog go this far for a ball, it doesn't matter what you were hired to do. This moment needs to be captured.

They'll thank you later.

There are so many awkward dorm situations that could've been solved by this bunk bed.

If it weren't for this festive idea, there probably wouldn't have been another use for these old propane tanks.

When every office is open concept, a sign like this is just what the doctor ordered.

Reddit | anackom

Not only does this person get his work done and keep the boss happy, but he's got a convenient excuse for those days where he just wants to be alone.

This idea unfortunately isn't very funny, but it makes for a very beautiful gesture.

Reddit | anackom

Most of us will reach an age where we realize we won't be around forever and it's only natural to want to give the ones we love something to cherish in our stead.

Reddit | JonathanTheZero

Russia's social media game is obviously on a whole different level if there was enough of a market to make entire vending machines for it.

I wouldn't have thought you could turn a cat barfing into art, but I apparently stand corrected.

Reddit | m3m3izlayf

A lot of people will come up with a whole range of crazy mods for their motorcycle, but only the truly committed will remember to customize their kickstands.

This sculpture at the Newport Museum definitely prepares you for what you can expect to see there.

Reddit | guessimkindaemo

It's often hard to tell what you'll get out of a modern art museum, but this one obviously wears its weirdness as proudly as the building wears this sculpture's pee.

Normally, I wouldn't recommend making a chandelier out of chainsaws, but it might work out for this restauyrant.

Reddit | PastorMattIII

After all, we all have those days where we don't want to eat and what sticks out in our mind when that happens? That's right, the place with all the chainsaws.

This idea might excite me more than some other folks, but I could definitely get used to seeing these machines around.

Reddit | mdwaseem27

Everyone needs one.

Prison break.

Nothing against the Colonel and his delicious friend chicken, but if I rolled up on KFC only to find an escaping chicken, it might just give me pause.


Reddit | shadimusa

I like this chart, because it lays everything out. My only question is whether non-cheddar variants of Goldfish are admissable. I had S'mores Goldfish one time and it was downright transcendental.

That's all it can say.

Reddit | jesssea
