  1. Turn GIFs Into Old-Timey Flip Films With The Giphoscope

    It was so hard not to turn this post into a full-on GIF party.

    We love sharing GIFs online - emails, Tumblr, Facebook; wherever, GIFs are always the appropriate response. Luckily for us, some folks over in Turin, Italy have taken GIF-sharing to a whole new level, creating the Giphoscope: a beautiful and functional piece of GIF art for your home.

  2. Without the GIFs and Images, Buzzfeed Articles are Hilariously, Terrifyingly Surreal

    But how will I be able to tell people what I'm feeling without screen caps from Mean Girls??

    Like 'em or not, you've gotta hand it to Buzzfeed -- they've turned sharing GIFs on the Internet into an art form. But when you strip all the images away, what's left? Nothing but curiously vague bits and pieces of phrases. Honestly, after reading some of these, it really should have occurred to us earlier that a Buzzfeed staffer was behind @horse_ebooks.

The reason why they're so excited? Asks are now rebloggable.

  5. Curiosity Rover Makes GIF of Phobos Passing Deimos, Wins the Internet

    It's like... Curiosity gets us, you know? Like, really gets us.

    Earlier this month Curiosity got a unique view of two Martian moons passing each other. It witnessed Phobos passing Deimos, and NASA put out a nice video showing the event, but if the Internet loves anything more than videos it's GIFs. That's why they released a GIF of the event. I wonder what we'll post it in response to on Reddit.

  8. 6 Animated GIFs Lone Signal Should Beam Into Space

    Its mission: To boldly go where no dancing baby has gone before.

    Every once in a while, humanity decides to send a document of its achievements into space on the off chance that it might get picked up by another form of intelligent life. In 1974, NASA beamed a binary encoding of a double helix. In 2008, they beamed a recording of "Across The Universe" by The Beatles. Today, the interstellar communication company Lone Signal will be beaming an animated GIF of a random white guy scratching his mostly-bald head into space. No offense to that dude, but is that really the best we can do as a species when there are so very many spectacular GIFs wandering about the Internet?

  10. A GIF Guide to When It’s Okay to Use Your Phone in the Theater So Someone Else Doesn’t Throw It Away

    Last night, National Review Online writer Kevin Williamson lived out our collective dreams and tossed the phone of a fellow audience member into the wings of a small outdoor theater. Part of us wants to call Williamson a hero, but polity brings us up short on that point. The cure for rudeness shouldn't be more rudeness, and grabbing someone's phone is likely to land you in some legal trouble or a fistfight, depending on the demeanor of the person whose phone you just threw. It's just bad behavior all the way around, and though it's tempting to, we can't condone any of it.
