As you get older, you start to get to the point where you don’t find most things very interesting anymore. When you are a kid, a rock can be fascinating. When you’re over the age of twenty-five, though, a rock is just a thing you might trip over when walking to the store. It is a sad truth, but it is a truth nonetheless. Time seems to speed up, and things just get boring.
Fortunately, the internet exists. There are a lot of things on the internet that are pretty interesting, and a lot of them are safe to look at while you are at work.
Here are ten examples of unique pictures that you might want to check out.
1. The Stairs
Denim is a curious choice when it comes to stairs, but it isn’t the worst one in the world.
If I had it my way, which I sadly do not, I wouldn’t wear anything but jeans. When you really think about it, they’re the best sort of pants. They look good with almost everything. They can be dressy. They can be casual. The footwear really doesn’t matter. They look great with sneakers and with boots. Depending on the style, they look fine with flip flops.
They also tend to last a really long time. They’re definitely durable—which is something you want in a pair of pants.
I always buy my jeans at Costco, which is a great store. You can get really nice jeans for under $25, which is a steal. You can also get buy tires there, and they are very reasonably priced. The book selection is great, but I wish they still sold video games at the one I frequent. You could get great deals back in the day.
It always astounds me when I walk through Costco-type stores just how big the televisions are. They are positively enormous! Who has rooms big enough to contain them? When is enough going to become enough in regard to the size of your television?
2. The Temperature
Obviously, someone goofed here. I always want to be wearing a t-shirt, though. I hate collared shirts.
I wonder if anyone got fired over this. He or she probably didn’t get a bonus at the end of the year.
I did a little research on cremation; I was wondering if 993 degrees was hot enough for cremation.
Apparently, if we’re talking Fahrenheit, it is not. Temperatures need to reach something along the lines of 1600 degrees Fahrenheit. It seems excessive when you think about it, but it apparently isn’t.
I personally think cremation is the way to go when you die. You take up a lot less space when you’re burned to ash. Also, I find skeletons extremely creepy.
3. The Cookie Dough
A point has been made here. If you bake cookie dough, it is a cookie—or a biscuit, if you prefer that term.
The desserts on this list read like they will make you super fat very quickly.
When I think of cheesecake, I always think of The Cheesecake Factory; if you live in the United States, you might be a fan. Most of them are in the US, but there are also restaurants in Canada, Hong Kong, the Middle East, and China.
The food is great. What drives me nuts about the restaurant, though, is that the menu is huge. You might as well be reading a book. I am not talking about a short book, either. You might as well be reading “Les Miserables”. There is just too much food to choose from; furthermore, the portions are ridiculously huge. If you go there regularly, you are going to gain weight. There is no way around it.
However, the mushroom soup they sometimes serve is one of the best things I have ever tasted.
4. The License Plate
This is amusing enough. However, I don’t really understand why people spend money to get fancy license plates. I have only seen a couple that actually made me laugh. In general, I roll my eyes at them. There is really only so much you can convey with a license plate.
It is remarkable just how much a really cool license plate can cost. They can literally cost over $10 million. You really have to wonder if they are worth it. I guess there are just some people who have so much money that they can’t think of normal things to spend it on—and that’s okay!
You know what else can be really expensive? Wine can be really expensive. If you have the money, you can easily spend over $100,000 on a single bottle. You can also buy a pretty decent box of the stuff for under $20.
5. The Sign and the House
How do you eat a house? I don’t think you can—unless you’re a dinosaur. I could probably, if given enough time, eat all of the food in almost any house. Then again, there are people who keep a ton of food in their house in case of a nuclear strike or another civil war.
It would probably take me a lot of time to eat all of that food. I know of people who have literally hundreds of cans of soup in their house. I love soup a lot; I really do. Still, buying hundreds of cans seems a bit excessive.
6. The Sign By the Road
Unless I am missing something, nothing about this sign makes sense.
One of the reasons I hate driving is that the rules are constantly changing on me. There is this road near my home where the speed limit suddenly drops at a certain point. I have no idea why it drops. I do know, however, that police officers linger near the spot. They are just looking to ticket people. I have had a police officer admit to me that traffic cops have to ticket so many people a month or they get in trouble; therefore, they are more likely to try to ticket people at the end of the month. I certainly avoid the aforementioned road at the end of the month.
Driving in other states is a real pain. In Los Angeles, for example, I don’t think they really have traffic rules at all. When I was driving there, my only goal was to make it from point A to point B without dying. It was harder than you would think.
7. The Phone In the Selfie
Why is the phone in the selfie here? That’s the big question. This is an advertisement, I think, and it is a strange one. Also, what kind if phone is that? I am not a huge fan of the color.
I will never understand selfies. I grew up in an era when many cell phones didn’t have cameras. My first cell phone didn’t have one. My second cell phone had one, but it was terrible. I never used it for anything.
It isn’t that I don’t know how to use the technology—I just don’t want to. It is pretty easy to use an iPhone, after all. What am I going to take pictures of, though? I have a few pictures and videos of my dog on my phone, but that’s about it. I certainly don’t need to see pictures of myself. I don’t think anyone at all really needs to see pictures of me.
8. The Upgrade
If I saw this, I would just assume my computer was dying and start shopping around for deals on a new one.
There is no way that message suggests anything good about the state of the computer. I would not sit back and relax if I owned it. I would panic. Also, it is never good when your computer has to restart several times.
I hate when programs and such need to be upgraded constantly. I have an XBOX, which I don’t play nearly as often as I would like; part of the reason is that it seems like every time I log in and try to play one of the few games I own that game needs to be updated in some fashion. It is obnoxious. By the time the update has been installed, I have lost interest in playing.
That’s a shame, too, because I used to really like video games. When I was a kid, though, it was a lot simpler. You just put a game into a system and it worked. Granted, the games were a lot simpler then and the graphics were just terrible, but they were still fun. At the very least, they were a great way to pass the time. I wouldn’t mind playing the original “Legend of Zelda” again one more time before I die.
9. The Makeup App
I did not realize there were makeup apps. That’s an interesting technology.
This is just an awful look. I don’t care about the makeup, per se, but it does not look good on this kid. Some people just look great without makeup. In general, though, kids don’t need it.
It astounds me how much good makeup can cost. I was in one of those high-end makeup stores—I forget which one, and I forget why I was there—but I witnessed a woman spend over $400. She didn’t look surprised by the amount she was spending, either. It seemed to be a normal thing for her.
I hate to say this, but I can’t imagine the makeup helped her all that much. She was not the most conventionally attractive person—if you know what I mean. There is only so much makeup can do, unfortunately.
