If you’re squeamish or scared of spiders, proceed with caution.
Japanese Mountain Leeches
A leech? Big whoop, right? WRONG. This guy isn't confined to bodies of water; instead, it hangs out in trees, flailing around to reach you, and then gnawing through your clothes to get to your skin.
Sprickets (aka Camel Crickets)
What if there was a bug that ~looked~ like a spider, but ~jumped at you~ like a cricket? GUESS WHAT, THERE IS!

Japanese Giant Hornet
You: Surely Mother Nature couldn't be so cruel as to create a hornet the size of your hand, that also has venom potent enough to dissolve human tissue.
Mother Nature: GUESS AGAIN.
Bleeding Tooth Fungus
Fungus is OK and all, but what if it looked like it was constantly hemorrhaging? Much better.
It was sent to us by Rishi Kaneria, who once did this awesome supercut of Pixar films.
For Kubrick fans, this is pretty great.
It’s official. And it’s right.
His blue eyes are the sexiest.

Peeing with the door open: totally fine, or the worst thing in the world?
Eighty-two percent of Jewish households have never had a Christmas tree. The 18% who do call it what it is.
Hanukkah ceases to be cool after age 17.
Y'know, when your parents start being like: "We're just getting you one gift this year, because you're an adult." That's when Christmas jealousy really sets in.
Hanukkah is actually not that important in the scheme of Jewish holidays. (Yom Kippur, Passover, and Rosh Hashanah are way more important.)
Which makes the holiday season something of a guilty struggle.
The idea of a "Hanukkah bush" seems like a lackluster substitute for an actual Xmas tree.
Eighty-two percent of Jewish households have never had a Christmas tree. A "Hanukkah bush" is basically a gateway drug for those who do.
If you've gotten a tree as an adult, you've probably kept it a secret from your family.
Because if your mom knew, she'd be afraid that you've turned your back on Judaism.
A toast! To offensive jokes and farting on stage!
For most people, public speaking is the worst form of torture. You hope for the best.

Or you had to take a moment to puke.
(But are not actually boobs.)
The roof of Metropolitan Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception in Nicaragua.
Angelina Ballerina's mother's nose.
This jelly donut.
These musicians were just like us…before they went to tour the world and stuff.
They deserve some lovin’ too!
When this lil guy wore his adorable Christmas sweater.
And when this whiskered pal made tree climbing look super cute.
When this dude was the cuddliest little baby on Earth.
And when this happy guy made the world a brighter place with his sly smile.
The Mind4 Kickstarter seeks funding for a smart drone to “follow any subject precisely”.
Everybody, say hello to the Mind4!
Built by Airmind, the Mind4 just might become your new favorite drone.
So how's it different from the garden variety? Well, it's all a bit technical.
But here's the basics. You download an app and select a target.

Thank you for teaching me how to write a check.
They taught us how to cook the essential family recipes.
Thank you for teaching me how to make everything from homemade corned beef and cabbage to the perfect frozen pizza.

They gave us the OK to skip school when we weren't feeling well.
If only a note from my mom was still an acceptable excuse for anything.

And they forced us to go when we were faking it.
In retrospect, I guess it was important for me to go to class on the day we were learning basic multiplication.

They made rules for us that we hated at the time, but would totally make for our own kids.
Curfews are stupid when you're 15, but damn I don't blame you for making them now.

This golden adorably failed his obedience test and won our hearts.
About a month ago, one golden retriever conquered life:
Look at him! He is all of us, we are him, everything is beautiful.
Sometimes you want to be mean, but not like, too mean.
This guy who acknowledged something even more important.
This person who wants people to know there's a clear difference between a sink and a trash can.
This person who was ready and waiting to poop in a pillow case.
This person who let someone know their job is considered skill-less.
ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS IS MORE CHRISTMAS.

Ma’am, I’m going to need you to back away from the diamonds.
You take out hundreds of pieces of jewelry for the customer and they almost always go with the first piece they looked at.
Oh, you want the stud earrings? The very first pair we looked at two hours ago? Right. Let me just wrap those up for you.

Or worse, they try on everything and leave with absolutely nothing.
Oh, really, nothing? I mean, I showed you like 40 pairs of earrings, but still nothing? K.
Disney Channel / Via giphy.com
Customers think that they can return a piece of jewelry without you realizing that it's been worn for months on end.
That is tarnished, missing a stone, and the clasp is loose. Did you participate in a triathlon with this ankle bracelet on?
The idea of personal space is completely foreign even with a glass counter between you and the customer.
If you lean any further over the counter, the glass will probably actually shatter.
