Check out the bizarre word below. Do you know what it says? It recently appeared on a bumper sticker in Ohio and the internet can’t get enough of it. We can only assume that the religious sticker is supposed to say “unashamed”, but the cross before the word looks distinctly like a ‘T’, turning what could have been an innocent declaration of faith into a hilarious design flaw that conjures up all sorts of weird and wonderful ideas. It was shared on Twitter by a user called @the_blueprint, and it’s already been shared over 55k times and liked by almost 180k people. Scroll down to see some of the funniest reactions.

With Hurricane Harvey, now upgraded to Tropical Storm Harvey, in full swing, residents of Texas are in crisis mode. Flooded by devastating amounts of rain, Houston’s roads have become more dangerous than ever, and one elderly driver found himself submerged and trapped inside his own car yesterday. What did the people in his vicinity do? They banded together – literally – to save him, and formed a human chain to compensate for their lack of rope. In a soul-stirring video shared across social media by witness Stephanie Edward Mata, we see the distressed gentleman successfully pulled to safety by the unwavering chain, and though his identity and current condition is unknown, his rescue is the latest story of triumph to bear the #HopeForHouston hashtag on Twitter.
Harvey has now claimed the lives of at least 38 people in Texas, Louisiana and abroad. See the most powerful photos of the storm here, and find out how you can help here.

Meet Melanie Barboni, an assistant researcher in the UCLA Earth, Planetary and Space Science program, who is also known as the ‘hummingbird whisperer’. She built a community of 200 hummingbirds who live outside her office and come to complain if she’s late to serve their dinner.
Barboni has always been a bit obsessed with hummingbirds – even when she was a child in Switzerland, a country with an almost non-existant population of this species. “My dearest dream as a child was to see hummingbirds. Imagine my joy when I found out that my next job assignment would bring me to Los Angeles, where hummingbirds live year-round,” says Barboni.
The woman adds: “I cannot go to a place where they are not there… This is cheesy, but I have seen them help people. They make my life happy. Having a crappy day? Who cares — there are hummingbirds around… Having a good day? Hummingbirds make it better…”

Pranava is releasing a line of products that make hair change its color like tree leaves in Autumn. However, the secret of the highly anticipated Vivids Mood Color isn’t photosynthesis. It’s temperature. “What makes it unique is that it’s the first-ever heat reactive color on the market,” Lissette Cruz, product development manager at Pravana told Allure. “Walking out into the sun, with the simple heat from the sun, makes the color shift. Any gust of wind can change it again and reverse right back to its original color.” Depending on what particular color is used, anything that makes the temperature drop or rise can turn yellow hair into green, pink hair into purple, platinum hair into blue and so on. “There’s no risk in using it. It does not damage your hair. You don’t have to pre-lighten your hair. You can put on various levels, but the brighter the hair, the lighter the color will look. It does lay on top of the hair. It’s temporary. You can change your color day in, and day out. It’s not dye.” Officially, Vivids Mood Color is coming out on the 1st of September, but barber student Jared Viliamu Pati got a chance to test it out sooner!

Keeping track of your suitcase in an airport is as hard as keeping track of your teenager on a Friday evening. Luckily, Firebox – a nifty London-based online retailer – has a solution to end the terrible post-flight luggage drama.
Enter Head Case, an instantly recognizable personalized suitcase cover. Allow me to explain: all travelers have to do is upload a high-quality picture of their face, the face of their significant other, their mom, or maybe even a celebrity. Firebox will print it on a double polyester spandex cover, and ship it to the buyer.
The entertaining cases still give access to the bag’s handles. Available in three sizes (small, medium, and large), they cost $26-$39. Nothing says “hey, that’s my bag!” like your huge face on it.

Augmented reality may sound like something straight out of the new Blade Runner movie, but if you’ve got an iPhone, it’s going to be at your fingertips this fall – and IKEA is helping.
IKEA Place is a revolutionary app that will completely change the way you shop for your home. Using new technology engineered by Apple, users will have the ability to ‘preview’ how pieces of furniture will look in a room by simply pointing their camera at the space they want to fill. The app will then superimpose a properly scaled and aligned image of the desired item into the user’s view. No more awkward returns after realizing that yellow sofa you bought totally throws off the living room’s feng shui.
The long-awaited release of Apple’s iOS 11 update is slated for October, and with it will come Apple ARKit, the handheld augmented reality playing field that made IKEA Place possible. Until then, scroll down for a preview, and prepare to be amazed.
