What Would Happen If Your Superhero Action Figures Came to Life — So this is basically Toy Story if they got all the rights to the fictional heroes you actually wanted to see in Toy Story, right? Photographer Daniel Picard has created scenes using action figures of favorite characters-from movies, comics, and every other medium made to sell merchandise-only he's thrown them into the "real world."

Margot Robbie Perfect Harley Quinn Casting — Now we're talking. This morning we're getting word that DC has a new confirmed cast member for its upcoming villain-led Suicide Squad film: The Wolf of Wall Street's Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn . For the uninitiated, Harley Quinn is the Joker's girlfriend and a formidable villain her own right.

Sriracha Tiny Bottle - Sriracha 2 Go Bottle - Esquire — This is a food blog for everyone, not just men. Even if you're not a man or you don't eat like one, we welcome you. It's just that there are foods that men love and there are ways that men eat that are just different, and we celebrate that.

T-Pain Performs Without Autotune Video — No, you are not in a social-media-overdosed daydream. Yes, that's actually T-Pain, nailing an unplugged vocal set like, well, some kind of singer! This is a surprising and soulful collection of songs, and dammit if this doesn't kind of change everything!

The U.S. Forest Service Is Backing Off Its $1,000 Fine for Photos in the Forest — The U.S. Forest Service, one of the four agencies which oversees wilderness areas in the United States, is backing off the language in proposed rules that would require members of the media to have a permit to photograph or shoot video in the 36 million acres of wilderness areas it oversees.

The U.S. Forest Service Wants to Fine You $1,000 for Taking Pictures in the Forest — Nice photo. That'll be $1,000, please. This week's most profoundly wrongheaded display of nonviolent press infringement comes from an unlikely source: The U.S. Forest Service. New rules being finalized in November state that-across this country's gloriously beautiful, endlessly photogenic, 193 million acres of designated wilderness area administered by the USFS-members of the press who happen upon it will need permits to photograph or shoot video.

Sarah Silverman Just Gave Everyone the Quote of the Day — Incredibly-on the same day that the NFL chose to uphold Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon's suspension for testing positive for marijuana use-Sarah Silverman, who caused her own stir earlier this week, offered some brief wisdom: It's silly that having a puff of legal pot at the end of the night is news amongst a sea of scary drunk people- Sarah Silverman (@SarahKSilverman) August 27, 2014 There's also this, by the way.

Richard Attenborough, Actor, Director, and 'Builder of Worlds' Has Died at 90 — The tremendously talented Lord Richard Attenborough-actor, director, and shining light of cinema for decades-has died today at the age of 90. He passed away around lunchtime on Sunday, according to a statement by his son. He is best known for his acting roles in The Great Escape, Brighton Rock, Jurassic Park, and Miracle on 34th Street, and for directing Gandhi, which earned two Academy Awards.

Nutella Recipes - Nutella Funny Videos - Esquire — Oh, sweet Jesus, no. As if sriracha, beer hops, and high-end whiskey weren't bad enough, now there's another shortage to worry about. The Nutella you know and love is running out. And it won't be pretty. All bets are off. If you live with or are friends with a Nutella devotee, there is no room for compromise.

Exclusive: Listen to Little People's Remix of Polyphonic Spree — Nothing resonates quite like a relationship in peril. We've all been there. She complains you're not spending enough time with her, but your schedule hasn't been normal in months. You left the seat up, and it's the third time, you jackass. All that seems to be left in it for both of you is inertia.
