I try to learn something new every day (30 Photos)

  • MylesofStyles

    #1 They were both female and Asian. True story.

    • 1895

      "Car" is a bit strong for 1895. Horseless carriage more likely. At least pair the picture for accuracy!

    • james

      try not to use cars from the 1920s for the 1890s

      • todd

        dont confuse cars from the 1930's with cars from the 1920's

        • socket2me

          yeah it messes up with the brains of the average Chiver

    • NorCal420

      didnt know asians had access to cars then. Thought they drove rickshaws?

    • Simon

      I'm sure Sheriff John Burnell was on hand to administer pun-based white-toothed justice.

    • matt

      Funny. No replies about how women are statistically better drivers than men. Just people mentioning the cars are wrong for the date. (Which is also true.)

      • I don't know

        The term "better" is subjective. Women are statistically safety drives meaning they follow more traffic laws than men. But that does not mean they are better. If they were, women would be dominating sports like NASCAR and f1 but they aren't. To an insurance company women are better drivers, competively men are.

        • tyler

          They have less accidents and receive less citations because, and only because, they drive much less than men.

          • carl

            plus boobs

            • mid13

              boobs help. so do radar detectors and crying. =D ..while I hit 110 on the jersey turnpike.. oops

    • Asian

      LOL Fawk all of you.. Roundeyes..

    • sonny

      they wer just too amazed to see another car that they crashed

    • guest

      B.S. Neither of those cars were made in 1895.

  • Julio_Fungoolio

    #28 I'm LBJ, and this is JACKASS.

    • Anjin-San

      LeBron James?

  • MylesofStyles

    #15 I always felt that there was something off about this guy…

    • Hrdwood

      …off his nut… at least he didn't do steriods.

      • http://euroranger.wordpress.com/ Euroranger

        Did you know that being the leader of Germany for 12 years, being the leader of his political party for 20 and that he was a notable citizen for longer than that…that there is but one recording of Adolf Hitler where he isn't shouting or screaming (like he did in his speeches)?

        Listening to his conversational voice is kind of…well…different. And un-nerving.

    • HickoryHeel01

      Apart from the whole genocide thing, you mean?

      • MylesofStyles

        And I guess you're going to go and tell me that you're little Mr. Perfect and you've never made a mistake? The nerve of some people, for crying out loud.

        • Hrdwood

          Maybe this guy wouldn't be so judgmental of you if he knew your grandfather died in a concentration camp…

          • MylesofStyles

            That's for damn sure. I don't think he'd like it if it were HIS grandpa who fell off the watch tower…

            • Auschwitz-Birkenau

              yup…genocidal mass murderers ar great humor huh?

              • ronfin

                Kony likes your comment.

              • MylesofStyles

                I really didn't put too much thought into it Mr. Auschwitz, but I think jew may be right.

  • Courtesy Flush

    #6 also great for starting camp fires.

  • blue_bronco

    #7 I like the cut of his jib

    • Colin

      Had a con law prof in school he used to make similar remarks. Cheers for the happy nostalgic moment.

      • Blue bronco

        That's the spirit. Get on the trolley!

    • Bob25

      I heard about this. Apparently the tire fire heated up the rock enough causing instability in the magma pocket below causing the volcano to actually erupt!

    • Anomanom

      Like A Boss!

    • Tony

      The natives do this all the time around where I live… but not for a joke. they complain the government doesn't treat them properly. meanwhile they pay not taxes at all and cops legally cant do anything to them

  • Jugger Nuggss

    #22 wow he was small

    • Epitomizer

      First they had to break him down, reformulate him, and then mold him into a shape that would stack into the can. You know, the same way they create this awesomely bad for you buncha goodness. Or maybe they cremated him…

      • JOe

        Solent Green

    • TokugawaBakayasu

      "Yes, sir. It is our most modestly-priced receptacle…"

  • Hans

    # 30 Lucky???

    At one time Madeline Albright was a powerful American Woman. I wouldn't wish that on anyone.

    • CantUnthinkThat

      After he got done with Maddy, he had to move on to Janet Reno

    • HUH?

      exaclty. 'powerful' does not always equate with 'beautiful'

      • OzEd

        in fact i would go as far as saying rarely

  • noegod

    i snagged two irish kcco's today, two chive logo's yesterday, and recieved my two kcco originals the day before in the mail! can you say BEST! WEEK! EVER!!!

    • blue_bronco

      Like The Chive, huh?

    • Macro

      You have too much free time and lack of sense of what to do with money.

    • peanut3603

      Sooo you spent around 200 on 6 shirts including shipping…..

    • Calm chiver

      I come to you pleading on my knees, if you would be so kind to help me out in my time of need in true chive fashion, I would ask a favor of you. I'm in between a medium and a large size shirt but I could only order a small size irish kcco and I normally wouldnt ask, but who knows when this chance will come again. If you are getting a medium or large irish kcco I will trade you my small and throw in some extra cash to boot if youre willing. Yes or no I congratulate you on your very successful week and hope you the best.
      Sincerely a loyal chiver

    • Fuck N Right

      200 bucks on 6 shirts? id rather spend that on all the gorgeous chivette's!

      • http://twitter.com/IAM_splashnasty @IAM_splashnasty

        dont be a trick… trickin off to these ho's. they gone take yo lil measly dollars and walk off like a model.

  • Pete

    Almost all of these were independently on the front page on Reddit over the past few weeks from their TIL (Today I Learned) section.

    Comeon Chive. Post your sources.

    • Tigger

      Stop going on both sites then! If I really cared about seeing something a few days sooner then I would go to Reddit. TheChive does a better job with their layout, usability, and interaction with the customers. TheChive doesn't care about you Pete, go back to Reddit.

      • Pete

        Meh. I don't mind the reposts to be honest… sometimes I miss things first time around. Its just a shame they don't quote sources.

        • anon

          just cuz sumin was on reddit doesnt mean that reddit was the source.

    • JS

      All from Reddit…

    • Openyou'refuckeneyes

      The links to the sources are under every pic.

      • Pete

        They are now…

    • truth

      It would get old seeing "Al Gore" under every picture though.


    #8 I call bullshit. This would completely undermine MSNBC's lack of credibility.

    • Pete
    • Zippy

      as if MSNBC has a ton of credibility now…

      • JESSE

        that is my point.

    • nick

      I see what you did there…

    • I dont GET it

      Chive needs to do a post on UNDERSTANDING SARCASM

      • Yep

        how about a post on using Caps Lock to emphasize words JUST IN CASE someone does not get your sarcastic remark about sarcasm?

  • sfb101

    #4 & #23 Oh the irony…
    #24 Steve's one awesome man!

    • OzEd

      I thought ironic meant made up entirely of iron

  • Flux

    #26 Aaaand you're broke.

    • Will

      What about Tim Geithner? That dude's not a chick…..I'm pretty sure

      • Kevin

        There is a difference between the Treasurer of the US and the Secretary of the Treasury. The Treasurer is a pretty powerless job and acts as an adviser to the Secretary and the Deputy Secretary of the Treasury. Fun fact: Every Secretary of the Treasury has been a man.

        The Treasurer is obviously the De Facto Affirmative Action position of the White House.

    • Yup


    • grantito99

      I'd hit that, MOAR please

    • liz

      That looks like a lot of plastic surgery

  • RooFeeOOO

    #9 Now a days he'd be tried as an adult and convicted, sentenced to life in prison. But since he's so good looking we'll let him go.

    • davo

      people think his dopey looking guy is good looking? weird fuckers!

      • https://www.facebook.com/michael.m.kappel.5 Mike

        Im sure if you had a vagina or a penis that got stiff around men, that you would also think he was good looking like they do.

  • Sick350Z

    #30 Is that Rocky from the movie Mask?

    • it could be

      I see it lol

  • dylan

    this is a blatant rip off of reddit.coms "TIL"

    • mike

      fO shO! pretty shameless…

    • Al Gore

      And they stole it from me…but you don't see me whining. Get over it.

    • ronfin

      dylan, the Internet doesn't care where the pictures come from, and neither should you. Go post "first" somewhere on ebaumsworld where you'll be accepted by your peers as being "cool".

  • Dirk Diggler

    #26 Huh?

    • Dirk Diggler

      Got confused when I saw the name Rosario Marin.

  • http://twitter.com/KCCOvilla88 @KCCOvilla88

    #16 i am sure theres a joke about sucking on dick some where

    • http://twitter.com/KCCOvilla88 @KCCOvilla88

      wrong picture FML

      wrong picture FML

  • KingThing

    Ha! Ain't that a bitch!

    #3 Don't just make shit up and call it true.

      • Rob

        No joke. When they first introduce the no cell phone while driving law in New Brunswick, if they spotted someone who was pulled over to talk on the phone they would hand out coupons for free pizza

        • Megs

          Where do you live in NB? We never got pizza coupons here 😦 lol

      • guest

        The story may be true, but thats not a Canadian police officer in that picture

        • Alex

          How dare they not have a Canadian police officer in the picture! Chive, you bastards!

          • whodat

            True. I literally just printed off a batch of said tickets for our local OPP.

            • DJG

              Yeah you know me!!

    • Bert

      They do something similar in Canmore http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/calgary/story/2012/

    • patrick

      i am Canadian and this is a giant pile of BS.

      • Lukey_Dukey

        that's why it said SOME canadian towns. Guess you don't live where they do it.

    • Mouse209

      Also, posting "positivetickets.com" as the source isn't right. I would've linked something neutral to the subject.

  • Craigery

    #27 And they illustrate the point with a picture of screenplay containing only one name? Genius.

  • Andrew

    #1 Are we sure this wasn't New Jersey?

  • qwerty

    #12 'I swear to god it’s true. I wouldn’t lie to you about bacon.'

    – I would… I hate bacon.

    • Courtesy Flush

      Screw you and your religion.

      • qwerty

        Haha… it was a lie.


  • RooFeeOOO

    #24 Makes him even more badass.

    • Barney

      The Tao of Steve

    • Simon

      I want a Steve M'Fucking Queen shirt.

  • Marco

    #26 – And the 160 years before that have all been men. Way to go ladies…

    • britney

      good one?

  • jess

    #19 what?

    • Courtesy Flush

      I think they threw this one in to see if anyone is actually reading them. It's got me stumped.

    • HUH?

      ok, so the slime mold grows towards the food. eventually there are little lines of slime going between all the food sources. when looked at from above it looks like the diagram of the train routes. meh.

      • Robert

        They think they might be able to mimic slime growth patterns to more effectively build train systems and such in new areas so basically by placing a food to represent the cities they can have the slime map out train plans etc.

    • Mike

      They figure the mold will choose the most efficient path between food sources (which they located in the place of cities on the map). The mold and the train system matched because trains don't give a shit about anything but going straight.
