Got a case of the Mondays?

Why are Mondays so blah? If you’ve got an epic case of the Mondays, why not scroll through a few (or a few hundred) pictures of your favorite baby animal.

Why are we so drawn to snuggly-wuggly cuties like the ones above? According to research by the University of Canterbury, humans have a cuteness detector that sweeps in and sounds the alarm whenever we see anything that bears a resemblance to a helpless, human infant. Think: big doe-ish eyes, wrinkly skin, limbs that need growing into, or a total lack of coordination. “The greater the number of cute cues that an animal or object happens to possess, or the more exaggerated the signals may be, the louder and more italicized are the squeals provoked.”

Why will this work to cure a case of the Mondays? Looking at images with mega cuteness factor stimulate the same pleasure centers of the brain stimulated by drugs and sex!

So, what are you waiting for? Open up another tab and get to googling!

The Intelevator

 

I am a secret fan of any tv show with elaborate pranks and wacky hi-jinks. Even better is if that show is European. They are literally the wackiest! This video of 2 dudes providing the voices for a “voice activated” elevator, called The Intelevator, had me ROLLING. Seriously. Just go ahead and click play. The reactions from the passengers are priceless. Totally random, I know, but I just had to share this with y’all.

P.S. Don’t you want to be friends with these guys? I would love to get a beer with them!
