5. Indonesian tiger statue turns into a meme, gets demolished


As further proof that we can’t have nice things, a much-mocked tiger statue in Indonesia (it was even turned into a meme) has been demolished. It was supposed to be the mascot for the Siliwangi Military Command. The statue has been in place for several years now, but only gained viral fame recently. The military command’s logo is pretty badass:


And what the hell is that in statue form? Given that the internet is full of mature individuals, the statue got turned into a meme and gave us glorious gems:

Speaking to the BBC, Siliwangi military commander Maj Gen Herindra said “Every unit has their own decision on how the statue was made, but sometimes the artist was not that good.” “Not good” is an understatement.

RIP meme tiger. After the original statue was destroyed with chisels, this badass one stood as replacement:

Now THAT’s a tiger. However, we still want it to shoot laser beams out of its eyes and have harpoons for legs. Now that is a tiger you don’t want to fuck with.


6. A good Samaritan left a generous amount of weed at a charity

Here’s some news to restore your faith in humanity: a man left nearly four pounds of marijuana in a cooler at a charity store in Washington.

Monroe, Washington police posted a picture of said cooler, with a smiling, maybe not high police officer posing with the sticky-icky find.

In Washington, sale of marijuana is actually legal for medical and personal use. The law states that no one should possess more than ounce of marijuana. Anything more than that can carry a five-year sentence and a $10,000 fine.

Police are already investigating to see if they can identify the generous stoner. Now whoever said weed makes you violent?


7. Blue “sea sparkle” phenomenon is set to get your Instagram hella likes

Over in Tasmania, bioluminescent algae lit up Preservation Bay, giving waters a breath-taking blue glow. The cosmic glow made it look like we were on another planet.

The algae are called dinoflagellates, otherwise known as the fitting “sea sparkle.” They light up when threatened, and National Geographic points out that they use the glow to look for prey as well.

The sea sparkle lit Instagram with these breath-taking photos:

8. Is Justin Bieber secretly a Lizard-Man?

Via Giphy

Mashable reports that certain (albeit questionable) news sources are saying that witnesses are claiming that they saw Justin Bieber morph into a reptile.

The articles had definitely legit statements from definitely credible witnesses such as “There were girls hiding in toilets, crying. Guys were running for the exits, jumping in taxis to get out of there.” Another source said “He was hanging around with this big guy, his bodyguard I guess, and we were just staring because he kept turning into a huge reptile. His bodyguard was pointing at us, shouting that he’d kick our teeth in if we didn’t put our phones away.”

So is Justin Bieber a reptilian man? Or are people just taking too much bad acid? Drugs are bad mmkay.
