If you'd like to pay your respects—maybe with some cheerful little woodland creatures like the ones above—you can find Bob Ross at Woodlawn Memorial Park in Gotha, Florida. While his headstone may be understated and unassuming, there's no doubt who it belongs to.


Numerous things can be said about President George W. Bush. One of the things that can be said about him is his respect for our armed forces. Portraits of Courage: A Commander in Chief’s Tribute to America’s Warriors

Quite the artist. Not as talented as Yoko, but nice work. Don't worry, no Yoko for you this evening.

Children. They certainly can be cute at times. Five year old friends are out to confuse their teacher.

SJWs are not a modern phenomenon. Before them were feminist trailblazers. Meet three feminists who caused serious damage to our society.

Likewise, she fueled the “all pornography is violence against women” meme. She got into a very public spat with the porn industry. Unfortunately for her, one of them dug up the following from her 1974 book Woman Hating:

The parent-child relationship is primarily erotic because all human relationships are primarily erotic.

Columbia University professors are brilliant. Trump is responsible for suicides.

Ever waste some food. Did you ever hear this at the dinner table? there are starving children in China. Instagram blamed for food waste.

Take the idea that Instagram is the cause of food waste. The suggestion comes from a report promoted by Sainsbury's, the British grocery chain.

And that, the study claims, leads to waste.
