    I'm tired just watching it.

    Animaniacs taught us the capitals of every state in the U.S. and the name of (almost) every country in the world, but it didn't teach us both—probably because it would have taken half an episode to get through them all.

    Yesterday, the YouTube community was rightfully disgusted by ex-Big Brother housemate Sam Pepper's latest video, "Fake Hand Ass Pinch Prank," where he sexually harasses women in the street and attempts to pass it off as a prank.
