Jordan Stratton

Jordan is one of those guys in his late 20s with a master's degree and no idea what he wants to do with his life. He eats an unhealthy amount of cereal, spends an irrational amount of time on the internet, and somehow swindled his way into a marriage with a beautiful wife who puts up with far too much nonsense. He would be delighted if you followed him on Twitter.

Video Of Dad’s DIY Zipline Ends About As Well As You’d Expect

Few things make a dad more proud than building something himself that, otherwise, would have cost him an arm and a leg at the store. Of course, when it comes to serious recreation/friggin’ ninja gear, maybe seek some outside advice.

Don’t get me wrong; the mechanics appear to be top notch. It’s the foresight and execution that need a little work.

Father has daughter test the new backyard zip-line.

Oh well. At least you saved those few extra bucks, right?

“Those are moments that I don’t know if any father or son has ever had,” Nance Jr. said after the contest. “To me, that’s the coolest part of it all. I’m already having several pictures blown up to be framed.”

Additionally, despite Nance Sr.’s number being retired in Cleveland, Nance Jr. was recently given special permission by the Cavs to wear 22—the number father and son have shared throughout their mutually impressive careers.

Dads aren’t typically synonymous with fashion-forward trends, but according to sources (1, 2, 3), Crocs are about to make serious waves in the fashion scene this summer. Finally, we can all be chic and comfortable at the same time!

Here are some of the funniest tweets from both sides of the aisle and everywhere in between.

13 Of The Funniest Google Autocompletes

Whether you’re double-checking how to spell “definitely,” checking how many calories are in that quarter pounder, or proving your annoying coworker wrong (the 1996 Olympics was in Atlanta, Jeff. God, I hate you so much), Google is your best friend and confidant.

Well, sort of.

See, Google takes note of what others have searched and takes guesses as to what you want based on that information to help you out in your own quest for knowledge. This useful autocomplete search algorithm helps one to clarify exactly what they need, but it also reveals just how frickin’ weird people are.

Here are 13 of the funniest Google autocomplete options, courtesy of weird, stupid, and/or disturbed people around the world.

Rough Day? Here’s A List Of The Most Laughably Horrible Toilet Setups Ever

(Twitter/Miss_Powerhouse)

I’m no contractor, but I know the basics when it comes to installing a toilet: It needs to flush, you should be able to sit on it, and it probably shouldn’t go in the middle of a kitchen.

Unfortunately, according to @Miss_Powerhouse on Twitter, these simple rules aren’t always so obvious. She’s documented some of the most inconceivable commode configurations ever constructed and we don’t know whether to laugh or cry.

Seriously, the guy borders on perfection. These might be the most satisfying videos you watch all week.
