A vending machine at my gym sells water right next to free water

A vending machine at my gym sells water right next to free water

A machine that sells cheap refillable bottles to those who forgot to bring one.

One time while at a gas station, a girl was complaining about $4/gallon gas prices all while paying $2 for small bottle of Figi water.

Water vs. Water to-go

Bottled water isn't really selling the water, it's selling the bottle. In this case, the ability to keep it near you and grab a sip as you need it while working out instead of stopping what you're doing and walking over to the fountain every time.

This may not be a valuable thing to everybody, but some people are willing to pay for it. The much smarter way to get that value would be to own a permanent water bottle and bring it from home. But quite a lot of people are fitting gym into a busy schedule and may fail at packing one more thing as they run out of the house.

This is all to say that it isn't entirely ridiculous to buy bottled water near a fountain.

EDIT: Yes, to the extent that people may prefer the taste or the chilled temperature, the water itself has value, and for people who have health concerns about public fountains. (I personally don't find a major health concern from public fountains, but that's a personal decision)

Accidentally took a picture of my legs during the eclipse but if you look in the bottom right, you can still see it in a puddle

pffff, you just want to show off your new shoes....

The reflection looks amazing though, wish you made it intentionally and much, MUCH larger.

**The puddle, not the shoes...

They're on to me...

Nice legs bb

Well, you are wearing them...

This "get fit" parking lot sign

This "get fit" parking lot sign

When I was growing up, my dad used to call the furthest parking place from the store "the best spot in the lot" - he even sang his own little jingle for it and everything. He always commented on how lucky we were to get to stretch our legs and breathe the fresh air. It's all a matter of perspective, I suppose :) He would've loved that sign.

This is an ambitious attempt to put a positive spin on shitty parking spaces.

Your dad sounds like the man

The shitty parking spaces are the best ones when you don't want your car to get dinged up by idiots

This Ice Cream Doorstop spotted in an Ice Cream Shop

This Ice Cream Doorstop spotted in an Ice Cream Shop

It started out as Doris' prank on a new employee at the shop... "Barney, can you clean up that mess over there?" but Barney earned great admiration that day by immediately finding a practical and clever use for it.

Barney....

Barney, can you clean up that mess over there?"

better? http://imgur.com/a/FFcHW

Found it.

It's available on for $14.29. I think I have to gift it to my friend who works at an ice cream shop.

This hummingbird is so fast he left an outline

This hummingbird is so fast he left an outline

A simple way to explain this effect is that HDR takes multiple images to make one, and the hummingbird moved almost a full body length between the shutter click. The camera decided to use the outline of the hummingbird and the body of the hummingbird in the final composite.

we are always present

Whoa. What if there are hummingbirbs everywhere but we can't see them cause they fast?

Actually you couldn't be more wrong. You see, this is actually called the looney tunes effect. While rare to capture on camera, this effect was discovered in the late 1940s when cameras began improving in quality. It was exaggerated in the cartoon show, where it was aptly named.

Lizard person

Waffle person

Judging by when you would have been in the sun that long, in that outfit, this time of year, and looking at your walls- I'm gonna take a stab and say Warped Tour.

Lizard person + waffle person = Wizard person!

Itchy cows have buffed this wood smooth.

All natural bovine buffed reclaimed vintage lumber.

This cow should start an Etsy.

Only $1,200 per plank.

I mean, assuming there was a hypothetical market for this it would take a long ass time to create even one plank of this stuff. It'd have to be a high price to be a viable business

Edit: everyone seems to be missing the point. No mass production. This is artisan, bull-worn, wooden planks. You can't achieve that authentic uniqueness with a belt sander.

This fence is made from the ice skates factory leftovers

This fence is made from the ice skates factory leftovers

Is it actually or is it just supposed to look like it is? I feel like this fence is probably wrought iron but ice skates are stainless steel. Still cool either way.

Some searching says that skates are steel coated with chrome (a non-stainless steel).

A lot of railing is steel as well.

Praise thee, /u/MrGMinor , speaker of truths and omniscient knower of this world. Bespoke unto me "Yay it may be that OP speaks true, and yay to the steel with which fences and skates may be conceived." And it was good.

What about some made from stretchers?

This shower handle shows the temperature of the water

This shower handle shows the temperature of the water

My shower has a voice telling me the temperature. It sounds like my voice and goes AAaahh too Hot/Cold

Is it actually measuring the temperature of the water or this is simply what it should be assuming a perfectly calibrated water heater and correctly insulated pipes.

Mine does this, but slightly different as it seems to swear a lot and blame my wife!

Didn't have a thermometer to test temperature on the output, but I'm assuming it's measuring somewhere after it mixes and before the faucet.

It's a shower in our hospital room

Wow, that is a high five

I thought I was on /sub/trees for a sec so this was funnier than I expected it to be

If the witness taught me anything, there's an obelisk with a 5 on it near by.
