No Running Near Today's List of the Day

Remember all those seemingly-obvious, stupid signs you’d always see as a kid that made you think “why the hell do they even need that sign?” 

Well, the people in today’s list of the day are the reason why these signs exist.

Exhibit A:

Exhibit B:

So here, on this wonderful summer day, as if you’re not already insecure/terrified enough in your swimming trunks, are the 25 Greatest Pool FAILs of All Time.

What is it about swimming areas that makes people into daredevils? Why is it that, all of a sudden, when some people are surrounded by water and people they want to bang, they think that they can pull off moves that professional stuntmen would charge extra for? I think we can all agree with user Robert Wabash: movies are most likely to blame. 

Not all of us can be Golden Gods.

Today's List of the Day is a Little Tipsy

Have you ever cooked while drunk? I think the majority of us enjoy a drink here or there while preparing our most delicious meals, but Hannah Hart of the popular web series My Drunk Kitchen takes it to whole other level. And that level is hard to beat.

Not is not only is she a friend of Ranker, but she has recently received a lot of attention for her charming videos where she runs a cooking show for beginners while completely inebriated. The results are hilarious

While some people can’t quite control their drinking

Hannah Hart brings a wit, charm and elegance to drinking alone, cooking and having some “you” time that can usually only be found in cartoons.

She’s also been getting a lot of attention from some great LGBT blogs like AfterEllen. So, in honor of one of the greatest new web series on YouTube, our list of the day is a votable list of The Very Best of My Drunk Kitchen (Videos). Bon appetit.

The List of the Day Got Skillz

Yesterday, NBA legend Shaquille O’Neal announced using Twitter and a relatively new video sharing service called Tout that he was retiring from professional basketball. Of course, like all other fans of surreal post-game interviews, the team at Ranker was saddened by this news. But we were also delighted to scour the Internet for some of the highlights of Shaq’s long and storied NBA career. The result was this list of Shaq’s Career Highlight Videos and Greatest Moments.

Yes, “Shaq Fu” made the list. Weren’t you paying attention when I just described what it was about?

Compiling one list of 20 items to sum up Shaq’s massive influence on not just sports but pop culture was a challenge. Where to focus first? His bevy of creative nicknames? (Did anyone ever actually call him “Dr. Shaq,” we wonder?) His brief but memorable success as a hip-hop artist? That movie he made with the kid and the magic jukebox?

That’s where you come in. Check out the “Shaq’s Greatest Moments” list, and vote for your favorite videos. We’ll reorder the list based on the Ranker community’s tastes. Because we know you got skillz.
