Anonymous People Are Fighting Terrible Drivers With These Genius Parking Notes

Parking is a hassle already, and it doesn’t help when a small percentage of people seem to be trying to take up as many spots as possible. It’s the scourge of modern society, and yet something amazing has been born from these inconsiderate parkers and their need to hover their cars directly over the parking lines.

You may have seen these before. They’re notes and business cards that random citizens and parking lot vigilantes leave on the windshields of badly parked cars, and they’re riotous! Be warned, some of them contain bad language and maybe aren’t for the eyes and ears of kids!

Our favorites probably the parking note with the dog because it’s just sarcastic enough while still being good-natured to make us laugh without making us cringe. Get the printable here.

Also, props to the one with the turtle because it’s a coloring project as well as a lesson in humility!

However, as much as we like the creative and slightly silly parking notes, there is something to be said for the ones that are direct and pointedly rude. We guess that they seem to be mimicking  the parking jobs they’re calling out! The one with the condom definitely fits this this category!

Perhaps the very best is the Game of Thrones one, but maybe that’s just because we’re going through serious GOT withdrawals!

The ‘Mannequin Challenge’ Trend Is Taking The Nation By Storm From High Schools To Pro Football Teams

We can’t keep up with all these Twitter challenges. It seems like there’s a new one blowing up the internet every day! The latest in this craze of crazes is the Mannequin Challenge, in which a group of people freeze entirely while the cameraman takes a video walking around and among them in an eerie way. It sounds simple but it comes out looking really cool… if you can pull it off.

We detected a bit of movement in the very first video, posted by some kids from Edward H. White High School in Jacksonville, Florida, but it was only for a second. Since that video, kids seem to have it down, sometimes getting what seems like their entire school to nail it together!

However, we think the most impressive videos are the ones with sports teams, because not only are they frozen in place while playing a game (as opposed to the fake fights that seem to be over-popular with the teenage crowd), but they’re using their muscle tone to pose in some really interesting ways.

The Buffalo Bills even got in on the trend, choosing for their venue an airplane that they must’ve completely taken over. Props to them for fitting in social media challenges to their busy schedule! Check out the other trending Mannequin Challenge champs and let us know who you think did it best!

Thrilled Woman Realizes Her Uber Driver Is The Original Voice Behind AOL’s You’ve Got Mail

When Brandee Barker got into her Uber on Saturday in Ohio, she didn’t recognize her driver. Why would she – Brandee is a Californian who had come to the swing state to canvas for Hillary Clinton. However, when she started chatting with the driver, she knew she recognized his voice somewhere, and after pressuring him a bit, she found out why.

Elwood Edwards, 67, is an Uber driver now, but he used to be a voice actor, and in fact is best known for a gig that only paid him a measly $200… He’s the voice of AOL’s notifications, something we all have ingrained on our brains from the ‘90s! Turns out his wife used to work for Quantum Computer Services, which later became AOL, and had her husband record the original sound files on a cassette tape in their living room. Ah, nostalgia.

Needless to say, Brandee freaked out and immediately requested that Elwood say his trademark phrase “You’ve Got Mail” for her, a request he gets a lot and one he’s only too happy to oblige. Brandee says she, “completely geek freaked and asked if he would do the video,” which has since gone viral.

Elwood gets a kick out of being called out for his famous voice – he even appeared on The Tonight Show last year to read funny phrases in that classic AOL way. So watch out, Ohioans, the next time you get into an Uber, you may have a huge bout of ‘90s nostalgia waiting for you in the driver’s seat!

This Adorable Skunk Family Will Steal Your Heart

Skunks get a bad rap. Yes, they’re stinky, and yes, they creep around mostly at night. However, most people don’t even know what skunks look like up close (besides those unmistakable stripes) because they never got close enough to really check them out. We’re taught to steer way clear of them as kids, probably because our parents didn’t want to make us take tomato soup baths to get the stink out.

Well if you’re harboring some residual fear of skunks from your childhood, the perfect remedy is this video. A biker posted it in 2015, when he was riding through a wooded area and saw what is possibly the most adorable skunk family ever. Thankfully he wasn’t afraid, and froze in place to let the little critters investigate his bike at will, and when he posted it, hardened hearts everywhere melted to goo!

Who even knew skunks made those cute little noises? They combine the inquisitiveness of cats with the irresistible hoppyness of bunnies, plus a sort of wild charm that’s all their own! And the fact that they travel in a tight group just KILLS us.

It’s all well and good for skunks to be in the wilderness, but they also adapt really well to urban environments (to the discomfort of people, usually). If you see a cute skunk family like this one in your neighborhood though, don’t think everything is about to get a lot more stinky. Having skunks nearby can cut down on pests like insects and rodents, and generally skunks are very easy going when left alone. If you don’t freak out, they won’t, so adopt a live-and-let-live policy and enjoy these super cute grayscale critters!

The Ultimate Airbnb is an Entire Country – Welcome to Sweden!

Sweden is nothing if not an enterprising country that really gets social media and this whole internet thing. After all, it’s the nation that brought us the Curators of Sweden, a project which in part handed over the official Swedish Twitter account to a different citizen for a week. It was very cool for a few months, then suddenly, it wasn’t. link :

That’s not to say that the idea of the project wasn’t amazing; after all, Sweden is a beautiful and unique Scandinavian country with a fantastic culture. That’s why Sweden recently listed itself, the whole country, on Airbnb! They’re inviting the whole world to come to the nation and explore freely, an experience called “allemansrätten,” or “the freedom to roam.”

The listing reads, “Allemansrätten… is a principle protected by Swedish law that gives all people the right to be free in Swedish nature. In other words, Swedish nature isn’t just a piece of land with trees and lakes and cliffs – it’s a home with all the necessities and amenities that any great home should have.” Not the least of which is spectacular views, by the way. The photos on the listing are breathtakingly beautiful, and the listing provides info on nine separate regions of the country, to get your journey off the ground.

We’re already backing our bags, and the listing has only been up for a few days! But with promises of warm hospitality and boundless natural wonders, we’re kicking ourselves that we haven’t visited sooner! As the ad says, “It’s a place where you can eat berries from the ground, sleep under the stars, swim in the lakes and roam freely.” Count us in!
