10 Hilarious Donna Meagle Reaction GIFs From Parks And Recreation
23 sep 2013 12:49

Retta's Donna Meagle makes the UPROXX Spirit Animal Power Rankings for a number of reasons: self-confidence, tell-it-like-it-is-atude, and -- most importantly -- scene-stealing lines everyone should use on a daily basis. And with us conducting a week long Parks and Recreation countdown it only seems fitting to kick things off with a reminder of how much more spectacularly badass we'd all be in real life (or at least on the internet) if we all borrowed from Donna Meagle on the reg.

Chicago Couple Have Sex While Driving
23 sep 2013 12:44

The likes of Aldon Smith are DMV instructors compared to the two drivers in the video below, one of whom is having sex with a lady while driving and the other who’s filming the entire performance. It takes a certain amount of skill, and a lot of dumb luck, to get away with driver’s seat missionary position while speeding through Chicago at 50 MPH, and even more talent to narrate the footage with, “I wanna get her bouncing again.” “Dying after crashing into a tree while having car loving” is a form of a “safe sex,” right?

What SteamOS Is, And Why It Matters
23 sep 2013 12:41

In the first of three announcements Valve is running this week about gaming in the living room, they showed their usual modesty and restraint and announced an entire freaking operating system that can stream your entire game library. So what, precisely, is SteamOS? And why is it a big, big deal? What It Is SteamOS is basically a custom operating system built on Linux, that streams games on Steam, that Valve is giving away for free. A good analogy is to think of it as the Android of gaming PCs; Valve has publicly declared they’re handing it out to anybody who wants it. This is important for two reasons: One, it means the operating system isn’t limited to one set of hardware. Unlike your PS3 or your Xbox 360, both of which are difficult to get running outside the environment specifically tailored for them, basically SteamOS is built to work on anything. Secondly, SteamOS gets around some pretty severe problems with PC gaming in the living room by just streaming your games. That in of itself practically sells the OS to a lot of people. Why It Matters Because essentially it’s what will likely be the first step to making gaming genuinely hardware-agnostic. Valve is essentially trying to leapfrog to where the game industry is heading anyway. Both the PS4 and the Xbox One are, in essence, streamlined PCs. That’s not exactly a coincidence; they were built, from the ground up, to make developing and publishing games cheaper and easier by making the architecture more PC-like. Part of the reason Sony is cuddling up to indies and Microsoft is talking up the sports and television aspects is that there isn’t going to be much different between the two in terms of actual games. This trend isn’t going to reverse any time soon. AAA game development is costing more and more and there’s less and less return. And that isn’t just a problem for developers, but also for the people who sell video games. You know, like Valve. Will It Work? Let’s see, a free operating system that you can just throw onto pretty much anything with a processor powerful enough to take it, and boosts the value of your device? Yeah, that’ll do pretty well. Gaming PCs will probably ship this standard, and remember, Valve isn’t done with announcements yet; the next one comes on Wednesday.

15 Inspiring Quotes From Your Favorite Childhood Authors
23 sep 2013 12:36

Now that you are all grown up, and stressing out about paying your bills, wondering whether or not this is really all that life is, and that rather distressing throbbing sensation coming from the general vicinity of where you think your kidneys are, you probably think that the books from your childhood hold nothing for you. That would be an unfortunate mistake to make. Words from the people who wrote the books we loved as children still hold plenty of meaning. Here are quotes from some of your favorite childhood authors (from works or interviews) that we think are still relevant.

Louisiana Fourth Graders Learn About Pimps in Their Homework
23 sep 2013 12:34

You might not think that students learning about the various uses of the word “twister” would get an indirect lesson in prostitution, but some fourth graders in Louisiana are receiving just such an education. Brittney Badeaux, the mother of a 9-year-old student at Eaton Park Elementary School in Southern Louisiana’s Vermilion Parish, was quite surprised when her son brought home a school worksheet describing a song by the hip-hop artist Twista called ‘Po Pimp.’ Badeaux sent a copy of the worksheet to the radio station KPEL in nearby Lafayette, writing beneath the Twista item, “Is this really appropriate for a 9 year old! Would you like to explain what a pimp is to my son?? I’m not happy about this.”

Touching Video Captures Young Boy Donating Money to Police
23 sep 2013 12:34

The next time you want to lament the youth of America, just remember this youngster. In this video, an 11-year-old boy walks into the police station in Greenfield, Wisconsin to donate money to the department. It turns out the boy, identified as “Max,” rode his bike to the station without telling his parents so he could donate a total of $10.03 in memory of his grandfather, a Milwaukee police officer who died in the line of duty nearly 40 years ago. The money will go to the Greenfield Police Foundation. Way to go, Max! But next time, let your parents your parents know where you’re going. They were probably worried sick about their lil’ Good Samaritan.

Dairy Queen Employee's Act of Extreme Generosity Makes Him a True Hero
23 sep 2013 12:33

A Dairy Queen employee has scored some serious points for his customer service skills. Joey Prusak, 19, was working at a Hopkins, Minnesota Dairy Queen earlier this month when he came to the aid of a blind customer after another customer took a $20 bill the blind man dropped. The blind customer dropped the bill while he pulled out his ATM card and the other customer picked up the money and put it in her purse. That’s when Prusak sprang into action: “I told her ‘Ma’am, you can either return the $20 bill or you can leave the store, because I’m not going to serve someone as disrespectful as you.’” The woman did exit the store, but didn’t return the cash, so Prusak took his good deed to a whole other level when he took $20 from his own pocket and handed it to the blind man. The whole thing may have been forgotten had it not been for yet another customer who witnessed the scene and wrote an email to Prusak’s manager praising him. The email has gone viral and Prusak has become a hero to people across the nation. Business at the store is now booming, while Prusak has gotten job offers and has received big tips. Still, he’s not getting a big head because of all the attention he’s receiving for his good deed. He said, “I did it without even really thinking about it….Ninety-nine out of 100 people would’ve done the same thing as me.” Prusak, who’s worked at this Dairy Queen since he was 14, plans to save money to study business management. Looks like he’s on the right track.

Millennials Are Just So Smugfully Sorry for Being So Awful
23 sep 2013 12:12

It’s not easy being a millennial. In this new tongue-in-cheek video, millennials — those born roughly between 1982 and 2002 — apologize for turning out the way they have and, well, just being terrible in general. As one person in the video confesses, “We’re self-centered. We’re entitled. We’re narcissistic, lazy and immature.” Of course, they do take some subtle digs at the baby boomers who raised them for maybe playing a role in causing our country’s problems — you know, little things like war, a recession, the housing bubble, college costs and loss of jobs, just to name a few. Sure, the millennials may not be ambitious, but don’t ever question their passive-aggressive techniques.

14 First World Problems Created By iOS 7
23 sep 2013 12:11

Whether you’re an iPhone fan or not, you’re probably well aware iOS 7 was released yesterday. For all non-users, this basically means the phone’s software was amped up a bit, which sounds like it’d be totally cool, but as soon as people could download it, Twitter exploded with complaints. Let us clarify– by “complaints” we actually mean “first world problems.” But seriously, it’s rough when iOS 7 suddenly gives you a Paula Abdul documentary on your phone! Ughhh.

The Funniest and Most Absurd Voicemail Videos on the Internet
23 sep 2013 12:04

When you leave a crazy voicemail, there’s a chance the recipient is going to make a video of it and put it on YouTube. This is why we stick to texting. Fortunately, these people didn’t, and we can laugh at their folly. Inspired by the hilarity of that classic (on the internet) voicemail a man left as he witnessed a car accident, we thought why not go ahead and curate more voicemail videos and put them in one place, so people could enjoy them without ending up on the weird part of YouTube.

Merritt Wever Gave the Best Emmy Acceptance Speech Ever
23 sep 2013 11:58

We don’t know if anyone will ever top Merritt Wever’s acceptance speech at the Emmys last night. It was brief (to put it mildly), but it was perfect. Wever won Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for ‘Nurse Jackie,’ beating out Jane Lynch, Julie Bowen and other comedy luminaries. In honor of her speech, we’ll keep this short. Good job, Merritt Wever. And great GIF:

Mom Sells Disobedient Daughter's One Direction Tickets on eBay

If you want to teach your teenage daughter a lesson, why not deprive them the one thing they crave most? Proximity to the dulcet tones of One Direction. A woman in Australia decided to go on eBay to sell four tickets to a One Direction show that were initially intended for her daughter because the girl, well…misbehaved might be a delicate way to put it. Read the description for yourself to hear all the rage. You can practically see the steam coming out of the mother’s keyboard as she wrote this:

Cowboy Grandpa Empties Pool With Box Cutter, Pandemonium Ensues
22 sep 2013 22:54

Well, slashing the thing open with a knife certainly tops pushing down on one side and watching the water slowly pour out in the fun category, as far as ways to empty your above-ground pool go. We’ve got to give this self-proclaimed “cowboy” grandpa credit where credit is due — this certainly tops giving your grandkids a couple of boards, a coffee can full of nails and a hammer, which was our primary grandpa good times experience. The bet part of all — *SPOILERS* — nobody gets injured in this video, which also negates most of our grandpa experiences (did we mention the five-year-old with a hammer thing?). All in all, we’d say 10 out 10, would go to the end-of-summer pool party again next year.

The Truth Behind That Hilarious Car Accident Voicemail Video
22 sep 2013 22:53

An eight-year-old internet video is going viral once again. But is that funny voicemail video that made you laugh legit? People who have never lived west of the Mississippi seem to have a hard time believing this video could be for real. To everyone else, the man on the phone sounds suspiciously like their uncle who always brings a bottle of Crown Royal to Christmas dinner. Well, hold on to your hats, unbelievers (FACT: all unbelievers wear hats, that is one of their most distinguishing characteristics), because sources say…this video is LEGIT. The source of said verification? Fast food chain Jack in the Box themselves. Although they do not understand why this video rears its head every couple of years or so, they confirm that it is, in fact, real. As the story goes, the man delivering the play-by-play of one of the funniest auto accidents of all time was an operations manager at Jack in the Box who was running late to work. He called his boss right before the accident involving several feisty old ladies and one unfortunate man happened. The recording of the voicemail was passed around amongst Jack in the Box employees and eventually trickled out onto the internet. And the rest is viral video history. Over the years, various people have called into radio shows that aired the voicemail message claiming to have been involved in the incident. We would like to point out that it has only been confirmed that the video is a recording of an actual message, not that the events described in the voicemail actually happened. But we can dream. Dream of a place where old ladies wield Bibles and people still leave super long voicemails.

These Giant Hyperrealistic Paintings Will Absolutely Floor You
22 sep 2013 22:36

To say Eloy Morales is an extremely gifted artist is an understatement. Based in Madrid, Spain, he has been refining his craft since 1995. Possibly one of the best photorealistic painters in the world, the depth and detail of his work is astounding; not only are his paintings photographic in quality, they possess a kind of life to them. Morales uses himself, family and friends as subject matter. He does this so that he is able to better develop the psychological aspects within his paintings. “I want to show how the person is feeling in that moment… this is the most important thing for me”. But how does he create such incredibly detailed and realistic artworks? The secret, it seems, is more to do with blending and layering, rather than focusing on the details…

Hideously Bad Album Covers From Yugoslavian Musicians
22 sep 2013 22:34

What on earth were they thinking? It’s a question you’ll constantly be asking yourself with this next post. Now you might be the most prolific and talented musician of a generation but nobody is going to be listening to your talents if your album cover has the capacity to scare children and cause the majority of adults to launch into tears of laughter. In saying that, some of these hideous album covers from Yugoslavian musicians truly are the very definition of ‘so bad so good’. They are SO terrible, you can’t help but want to listen to them just to see if the music really is equal to the image on the front. They might be masterpieces for all we know. As for picking a fav? You can’t really go past ‘Christmas with Rico” can you?

Luke Scott Wore A Chewbacca Mask At The Tampa Bay Rays Game On Friday
22 sep 2013 00:00

The Tampa Bay Rays, like the Yankees, Orioles and Blue Jays, have been eliminated from contention in the American League East, because the Boston Red Sox steamrolled their way to the current 8-game lead and the division crown. But the Rays at least have their hopes set on a Wild Card berth and right now things are looking pretty good with a 1.5 game lead over the Texas Rangers, who have lost 7 of their last 10. But that still doesn’t mean Tampa can let up, which was evident in the Rays current three-game winning streak that has all but eliminated the Orioles from Wild Card contention. On Friday night, though, the Rays were locked in an 18-inning duel with the O’s and at some point the crazy train showed up to the station, as Luke Scott and Co. got a little crazy in the dugout.

Watch This: It's Time To Ban Alligators From Golf Courses Already

But I golf quite often and any time I see a gator, I usually run about 20,000 feet in the other direction. So even though this gator that they recently rescued from a driving range was a little on the small side, seeing it spin in circles with its mouth open wide like it was about to bite the big guy’s hand off? No thanks, man. No thanks.

The Government Wants You To Unlock Your Phone
18 sep 2013 13:16

A few months back, we told you that Obama had paid lip service to a petition about being able to legally unlock your phone, but that nothing was going to happen from the sound of things. Apparently, we misheard the sound of things, because the White House is actually pushing the FCC to do something. Specifically, the White House has petitioned the Federal Communications Commission to make phone unlocking at any time completely legal. It’s currently illegal because of the Digital Millenium Copyright Act. Explaining why would take forever, and not even the government can offer a good reason. Will the FCC do it? Considering who’s running the joint, odds look pretty good: Before resigning earlier this year, former FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski said the commission would examine the issue “to see if we can and should enable consumers to use unlocked phones,” adding that a ban on unlocking “raises competition concerns; it raises innovation concerns.” Tom Wheeler, President Obama’s nominee to succeed Genachowski, said during a nomination hearing in June that he supported lifting the ban. Needless to say, there’s the usual mindless panic among people who insist that this will bring to an end to subsidized phones. Which it won’t, because most of those subsidized phones are tied to a contract anyway, and it makes far more sense to buy the unlocked version of a phone than eat an early termination fee. Now, contracts themselves are increasingly an endangered species, but that’s due to market forces and phone hardware update cycles, not government intervention. Unlocking phones means we can get more use out of them, and that we can choose more easily what network we use when communicating. The White House views it as giving consumers the tools to vote with their wallets, and really, that’s what it is, in the end. Besides, considering how many phone ads we see now, it’s not like wireless carriers will have to shell out more for marketing.

iOS 7 Download Is Out, And You Should Update Right Now
18 sep 2013 13:15

Just a friendly reminder: iOS 7, probably the most compelling product Apple talked about last week, is out. If you’ve got an iDevice capable of running it, you need to get it. Why? Glad you asked! Not for the graphics finishes; people will be having a nice rabble rabble about that for days, and it couldn’t matter a bit less. No, what matters is what’s under the hood. The Notification and Control Centers are probably my favorite feature. The Notification Center is a very clean, simple way to look at your stuff in one place, something that iOS could use a better form of. The Control Center, meanwhile, is something Android will swipe in the next update: Essentially it puts all the settings you could want right at your fingertips. The camera software has also gotten an overhaul: While I find the Instagramming of every piece of camera software on every phone to be almost as nauseating as the gold iPhone 5S, I’m forced to admit Apple’s filters were actually designed to make a photo look better. That’s as close as I’m going to get to a glowing recommendation, but if you have to use filters, Apple’s gone out of its way to make some good ones. Finally, the most subtle change is the best. Apple has dumped the whole “Oh, you’ve never used a smartphone before” attitude in favor of designing the OS to just make sense and flow naturally. Everything is more sensible, smoother, more logical. In some ways, iOS 7 shakes off some unnecessary cruft in favor of being more user-friendly in general. In short, it’s easily the best thing Apple’s rolled out this year. Go get it!

Hear Pre-Led Zeppelin P.J. Proby Album
18 sep 2013 13:00

In 1969, long before Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, John Paul Jones, and John Bonham inspired Wayne’s World signs and shoved sharks up women’s vaginas, hell, even before they went by Led Zeppelin, they played on P.J. Proby’s largely forgotten country-blues album, Three Week Hero. Proby, a music industry legend who had a number of hits in the U.K. but is most remembered for the “pants-splitting incident” in the States, signed the then-New Yardbirds foursome to a two-day recording contract, likley beginning on August 25th, 1968. According to Dangerous Minds, that date marked “the very first time that Led Zeppelin would enter a recording studio together.” You can read more about the sessions here, or just listen to the great “The Day That Lorraine Came Down” below.

In 1969, long before Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, John Paul Jones, and John Bonham inspired Wayne’s World signs and shoved sharks up women’s vaginas, hell, even before they went by Led Zeppelin, ...

Signs the Pumpkin Spice Craze Has Gone Too Far
18 sep 2013 12:55

Like it or not, fall is here, (pretty much, let’s not get technical about it, okay?). We all know what that means — hot apple cider, digging out your sweaters from the back of the closet, and people going on and on about how much they love pumpkin spice lattes. It was only so long before the market responded, and now are subjected to an onslaught of pumpkin spice-flavored crap so extreme, we think things have gotten a tad out of hand. Here are just a few examples that the fad has gone too far.

Dancing Bus Stop Lady Lands Prestigious Theater Role
18 sep 2013 12:47

What’s that saying about how you should dance like no one is watching? That credo certainly paid off for Ellie Cole. The British woman, 35, was captured on video dancing while waiting at a bus stop by a café owner across the street. The video went viral and now she’s been rewarded with a role in a show at the country’s Point Theatre. Although viewers watched her cutting a rug to Abba’s ‘Dancing Queen,’ Cole was actually dancing along to a song called ‘Knock Down’ by Alesha Dixon. The hoopla has certainly caught her off-guard. She said, “I’m just a normal everyday person who happens to like dancing at bus stops.” Cole had intended to study performing arts when she was younger, but she had to drop out of school due to money issues, so you know the offer to be in a show is one she appreciates. “It’s very flattering and humbling,” she says. And, for the record, she’ll be appearing in the musical ‘Ah Men!’

NASA Captures Epic 'Frog Photo' During Spacecraft Launch
18 sep 2013 12:35

NASA is noted for its incredible photography of space, earth and our farthest reaches of the known Universe. They’re less known for Photobombing. But that’s exactly what happened on Sept 7th when the Lunar Atmosphere & Dust Environment Explorer (known as LADEE) was launched into the stars above. During a photograph of its launch, the NASA team amazingly captured a small frog in amongst the furore. It was either innocently sitting on the shuttle itself or on the ground nearby – either way it must have had quite a shock! The result is a tiny silhouette of a frog being blasted some 30ft in the air, engulfed in smokey exhaust of the shuttle. NASA has since confirmed the image is in fact real (no Photoshopping of Kermit going on here) before awkwardly adding “the condition of the frog, however, is uncertain.”

Must-See Freaky Faces Made From Designer Clothes
18 sep 2013 12:33

When it comes to the majority of our clothes, we wear them, clean them, fold them and store them. And we repeat this cycle until they are too outdated too worn to wear – we seldom actually have fun with our clothes. The same, however, cannot be said for Austrian photographer Bela Borsodi. From her private New York studio, she’s unleashed a selection of freakish faces, formed and folded entirely from fashionable clothes. Titled ‘Fashion Faces’ she’s taken designer jeans, jackets, shirts and sweaters and contorted them into unusual & somewhat grumpy faces. Even more impressive that her origami-esque skills is the fact she did all this without a single drop of glue or pair of scissors being needed. Her only tools were a vivid imagination, buckets of clothes and lots of trial and error. The result? Your laundry never looked so…..lifelike!

Infographic: The Truth About How Beer Saved The World
18 sep 2013 12:24

It might sound slightly ludicrous, but if you were one of the Egyptian builders working on the Pyramids in 1600 BC, your daily wage wasn’t in the form of currency – but 1 gallon of beer. In retrospect, that sounds like a good deal right? Although having a hangover of epic proportions, whilst attempting to build one of the Seven Wonders Of The World in the scorching sun probably wasn’t the smartest move. Another example of beer fandom amongst the annuals of history, takes us across to the United States. The founding fathers of America, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Samuel Adams & Ben Franklin aside from being astute & visionary individuals, were also all brewers and avid drinkers of beer. In fact it was over several beers at their local tavern that they decided to start the revolution. Did several the jugs of malt & hops single-handedly cause them to rise up in the name of liberty for the common man? Probably not, but there’s no denying it helped the cause along that night. Those are just a few of the interesting tidbits from the ‘Beer Saved The World’ infographic below, you’ll find many more facts, figures and trivia as you scroll down. So next time you relaxing with a beer in your hand enjoying those hops, just think, without them the world could be a very very different place right now.
