So DC's Suicide Squad movie was just released this past Friday (Aug 5th, 2016) and it has crushed the Box Office with some good numbers, despite terrible reviews via Rotten Tomatoes. But of course, critics are “critics”, and the best way to judge a movie is to go see it for yourself.
With that being said, a short introduction to the Suicide Squad via Wiki:
The Suicide Squad initiative functions as an unorthodox work release program, which explains why many of the DC Universe's super-villains remain perpetually on the loose—regardless of how many occasions they are apprehended and incarcerated for their latest crimes. The modern incarnation, the Suicide Squad, is an antihero "strike team" of incarcerated, death row super-villains. Acting as deniable, covert assets of the United States government, it undertakes high-risk, black-ops missions in exchange for commuted prison sentences. The group operates out of Belle Reve Penitentiary under the directorship of Amanda Waller.
Deadshot / Floyd Lawton
Played by Will Smith. Deadshot has no superhuman powers but is known as the world's deadliest and most accurate marksman in the DC Universe and hires out his services as an assassin. Deadshot also wears a cybernetic eyepiece to further increase his accuracy. Deadshot made his first appearance in "The Man Who Replaced Batman" (1950) as a new crime fighter, but is later revealed to be an enemy of Batman when he attempts to replace the Dark Knight.
Fun Fact: As a child, Lawton idolized his brother. When his mother convinced his brother to kill their father, his brother locked Floyd outside. Floyd, wishing to save his brother from a grim future, took a rifle to shoot the gun out of his brother's hand. He was sitting in the tree branch when it broke and Floyd accidentally shot his brother in the head. Lawton inadvertently kills the brother he loves to save the father he hated.
Harley Quinn / Harleen Quinzel
Played by Margot Robbie. Harley Quinn was first introduced in the Batman: The Animated Series episode “Joker’s Favor”. She is most famously known as the Joker’s lover/side-kick. Harleen Quinzel was a psychiatric intern at Arkham Asylum. There, she met the Joker and became instantly interested. The Joker saw that, and manipulated and seduced her until she eventually fell in love with him. She believed he was just doing these criminal acts to get people to laugh, but finding no one laughing at his antics. She eventually concluded that Batman was the cause to this and believed Batman was being a bully to the Joker.
Fun Fact: Harley Quinn’s character was inspired by a “Days Of Our Lives” episode where a dream sequence occurred where Arleen Sorkin dressed as a court jester.
Killer Croc / Waylon Jones
Played by Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje. Waylon Jones was born with a rare genetic disorder. This gave him the characteristics of a reptile, complete with thick scaly skin, sharp claws and jagged teeth. His birth was so unusual that it caused the death of his mother. Raised by his drunken aunt, he was tormented at home and at school. Committing cold blooded murder, he escaped from prison and joined a travelling carnival where he wrestled alligators to the death as the “Killer Croc.” Afterwards, he relocated to Gotham City with the dream of becoming a crime lord.
Fun Fact: Killer Croc had a role in Jason Todd becoming the second Robin. It was originally written that Killer Croc killed Jason Todd’s parents and Batman taking him in, but this was later revised to Two-Face being the killer.
El Diablo / Chato Santana
Played by Jay Hernandez. Chato Santana was the ruthless and powerful leader of a dangerous street gang in Los Angeles who gained pyrokinetic powers following an encounter with the original El Diablo (Lazarus Lane). After a rival gang sold drugs on his turf and refused to give him a cut, Chato attacked them at their home, setting the building ablaze. Entering the building, he found that not only the gangsters, but also a woman and children, had died in the blaze. Distraught, he allowed himself to be taken into custody. Where at some point was captured by Amanda Waller and forced to join the Suicide Squad.
Fun Fact: While on death row at Belle Reve prison, his cell filled up with gas and he was implanted with a micro-bomb to insure his obedience. After undergoing torture to test his loyalty, El Diablo was officially inducted into the Suicide Squad.
Captain Boomerang / Digger Harkness
Played by Jai Courtney. Captain Boomerang is a villain who uses…get ready for this…..Boomerangs as his main choice of weapons. He first appeared in “Flash Vol . 1 #117” where Digger tried to pick someone’s pocket. He was spotted by the Flash, Digger then threw a boomerang at him and flattened him. Realizing what he could do, he began a criminal career as Captain Boomerang, using both regular and gimmicky boomerangs for ever more spectacular crimes.
Fun Fact: Captain Boomerang's costume and name was originally intended to market a new toy boomerang at the company owned by his father W. W. Wiggins.
Tatsu Yamashiro / Katana
Played by Karen Fukuhara. Trained in martial arts and swordsmanship from a young age, Yamashiro possesses vast combat skills and tactical expertise. She carries around a mystical blade known as Soultaker which is a sword that steals the soul of those that it kills. In the Suicide Squad movie, she volunteers to join the team and serves as Rick Flag’s bodyguard.
Fun Fact: One of the souls trapped in her sword is that of her husbands’, who was killed by the Yakuza. Katana usually communicates with her husband’s soul via Soultaker during combat.
Played by Joel Kinnaman. The leader of the Suicide Squad, who executes Amanda Waller's orders but does not always agree with her goals or methods. Though highly skilled and trained, Rick Flag does not have superpowers. He does occasionally have issues with mental instability, which is exactly what you want when you’re about to embark on high-stakes, high-risk missions with a group of known super villains.
Fun Fact: Rick Flag is a Jr. His father, Rick Flag Sr. served in WWII in a unit called the Suicide Squadron.
Played by Jared Leto. Although not a member of the Suicide Squad, a notable mention must be made. The Joker really needs no introduction, he is known as Batman’s most iconic archenemy. The Joker is a master criminal with a clown-like appearance. Initially portrayed as a violent sociopath who murders people for his own amusement, the Joker later in the 1940s began to be written as a goofy trickster-thief. That characterization continued through the late-1950s and 1960s before the character became again depicted as a vicious, calculating, psychopathic killer.
Fun Fact: The Joker has been responsible for numerous tragedies in Batman's life, including the paralysis of Barbara Gordon (Batgirl) and the murders of Jason Todd (Robin) and Jim Gordon's second wife Sarah Essen.
Being a dad is a wonderful feeling and if you take into consideration all the emergency scares, irregular sleeping patterns, diaper calls and don’t-know-why crying sessions, it is also a painful one. Here are 5 videos by a new Dad showing the everyday struggle of being a Daddy.
The Morning Hustle
Dad: I have 15 mins!
Kid: Challenge accepted *smiles sarcastically*
Watch this video and enjoy all the cute shenanigans this little kid brings upon his dad every morning. The surprising part is, the kids do it like routine as if Satan pays them with candy for it!
Build a Throne for Your Kid
Not the “Game of Thrones” throne but a simple throne; although most of the dads won't mind trying out the “Game of Thrones” setup, just build the damned throne and let your kind rule the garden and you (and worms and insects).
Teach Life Lessons
The next video shows you everything that you should teach your kid before sending him to the jungle to spend the rest of his life. Fishing, hunting, building, repairing cars for a living, running without shoes after stealing, running with shoes that you have bought from stolen money and finally the CANNON BALL!
How to Put a Baby to Sleep
This should be the video of the month or maybe of the year. The dad here teaches all the things that can trick your baby into sleeping and ultimately let you sleep peacefully. Plus it's hilarious how he hypnotizes the kid into being a mass murderer and takes over the city. Amazing stuff!
Making Them Eat
This is the worst part of owning a baby. 'Owning is a wrong word?' When your baby is so naughty that he can trick you into thinking he is your dad and not you, owning is the correct word. Leave my vocabulary alone and focus on the video; you need the tricks, right? Plus the video is cute!
No, this article isn't about how crunchy and delicious cockroaches are (especially if they are deep fried). It's about a recent discovery a team of scientist at India’s Institute for Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine made in regard's to their milk. It’s more than four times as nutritious as cow’s milk and, the researchers think it could be the key to feeding our growing population in the future.
It's not what you think though, cockroaches don't have utters like cow or a nice beautiful rack, sorry Edgar the Bug, no motorboats for you.
Around 10 years ago, it was discovered that the stomachs of a particular type of cockroach contain milk protein crystals. This cockroach (Diploptera punctata) is the only known viviparous cockroach, meaning it gives birth to live young, which is fairly bizarre for an insect. Just like mammals, they have to feed their young with a “milk” containing protein crystals, and these crystals were found to hold a crazy amount of protein. A single crystal is estimated to contain more than three times the amount of energy found in an equivalent mass of dairy milk.(Source).
The crystals are like a complete food -- they have proteins, fats and sugars. If you look into the protein sequences, they have all the essential amino acids - Sanchari Banerjee
Researchers are currently working to sequence the genes so they can be reproduced in a lab and eventually be on your local supermarket shelf. Can't wait for the BOGO deals!
You can find all sorts of stuff on the internet, that's a no-brainer. Remember that time you were completely hung over and threw up all over that cop's jacket? Yeah, that's online. And once it's online, it's always online.
Mr. Donald J. Trump himself posted the photo below on his Instagram a while ago but it never got much traction. Well, not until it resurfaced on Reddit and alas, a photoshop battled followed.
Young trump is already rubbing his hand in a mischievous manner. Perhaps thinking on a plan on how to buy other kid's lunches and flip them for profit.
Prepare yourself..Donald Trump photos are coming:
Donald the Builder - Can We Stop Illegal Immigrants - Yes, We Can!
He Would Probably Be All Alone In The White House Too
Trump The Menace - Slinging Worthless Pennies
Trump The Illegal Alien
Toddler Trump Probably Fired His Parents

Puppy Monkey Baby
After not advertising in a Super Bowl for 15 years, Mountain Dew released this commercial ad for Super Bowl 50 in 2016. Extremely awkward but a sure hit.
Skittles' - Rainbow Facial Commercial (Not Aired)
This commercial (Spec Ad) done by Team Cousins is definitely a NSFW commercial that did not air on TV but is a viral hit on YouTube.
Panda Cheese - Never Say No To Panda (Compilation Ads)
Just try the cheese! This commercial, which features a giant panda who terrorizes people for not wanting to try the cheese is funny as hell. Panda Cheese is manufactured by Arab Daily.

Nutri-Grain Commercial - Feel Great!
Excuse the potato quality but this one is a classic. Nutri-Grain wanted to show how great it feels to eat one of their nutrition bars. Makes you want to have babies everywhere!

"Men have fought for it, battled for it, even died for it." Embrace the pussy power!
Denny's Nannerpuss Commercial
Denny's wanted to promote their "serious" breakfast with this commercial..it's too bad Nannerpuss isn't part of their menu. I just hope that Nannerpuss was able to find his right eye.
Doritos "Beer" Flavor Superbowl XLIII Commercial
This commercial aired during the Superbowl XLIII pre-game and only costs $15 to make. Created by the comedian Pete Holmes and his team.
2010 Big Rock Brewery Commercial
Contrary to the YouTube title below, this wasn't a rejected Superbowl ad for 2016. This was a commercial made for the Eddies Awards by Big Rock Brewery (Silver Award Winner).
Big Shake Commercial
Because no one can pelvic thrust better than Haitians....this commercial is just awkward and disturbing. And we like it!
Smart Beep - Blind Date Commercial
This commercial was highly innocent, however it did not make it on air. FYI, the FCC were a bunch of soft dicks back in the days. Enjoy the beeper nostalgia.
What's Pokemon GO? You're kidding right? I would hope so. If you haven't noticed a swarm of zombies outside all staring at their phones wandering aimlessly, then you really do not know what Pokemon GO is.
Pokemon Go (stylized as Pokemon GO) is a free-to-play location-based augmented reality mobile game developed by Niantic for iOS and Android devices. It was released in most regions of the world in July 2016. Making use of GPS and the camera of compatible devices, the game allows players to capture, battle, and train virtual creatures, called Pokemon, who appear on device screens as though in the real world. The game is free to play, although it supports in-app purchases of additional gameplay items. - Wiki
Now that we got that out of the way. Here are 10 Pokemon GO secrets you may have not known.
Pokemon Go Secret #1
Start with Pikachu as a starter Pokemon
Want to feel a bit like Ash Ketchum? Well, if you want the adorable and "hard to find" Pikachu as your starter Pokemon, all you have to do is ignore the 3 starters available at the beginning of the game (Bulbasaur, Charmander, and Squirtle) and walk around for a bit.
See the video above by GameRiot. Of course, this is for brand new players only 😉
Pokemon Go Secret #2
The highest CP Pokemon may not be the best Pokemon
Before you go and transfer your lower CP Pokemon to the Professor. Be sure to look at the move set for each of the duplicates you are going to transfer. You may have a Pidgeot with a higher CP but that lower one you are about to get rid of for some candy may have the better move set. The attack power and type of move sets you have will be the deciding factor in Gym Battles.
Side Note: This tip is a lot more useful for those Pokemon in their final evolved form.
Pokemon Go Secret #3
You can force Eevee's evolution type
Eevee has 3 possible evolution forms: Vaporeon (Water), Jolteon (Lightning), and Flareon (Fire). Before this find, users will have to cross their fingers and hope they get the evolution type they really want.
A recent post on Reddit shows that you can actually force evolve Eevee to your preferred "Eeveelution".
It would seem that there is in fact a way to force an evolution of your Eevee. The Eevee Brothers from the original anime were named Rainer, Pyro, Sparky and they owned a Vaporeon, Flareon and Jolteon respectively. If you nickname your Eevee either Rainer, Pyro or Sparky, your Eevee will evolve into that desired Eeveelution!
Sparky = Jolteon
Rainer = Vaporeon
Pyro = Flareon
I have tried it on a few Eevees and so have friends, and we've seen a 100% success rate. Feel free to give it a try and post back here with results!
Go ahead and choose which Eevee evolution you want. If it works for you, come back and let us know in the comment section below!
Pokemon Go Secret #4
Pokemon type strengths and weaknesses
To be a successful Pokemon master, you must know your Pokemon type and their weakness. You are able to see the defending Pokemons in the Gyms, so be prepared and choose the right Pokemon to battle.
Here is a chart that you can reference for future purposes:
Pokemon Go Secret #5
How to properly use your Lucky Eggs for maximum XP
Unlike regular eggs that you must hatch in the incubator. Lucky eggs give out 2X experience for using (activating) them and lasts 30 min.
In Pokemon GO, you get experience points for different actions in the game:
- 10 XP – Curve ball (arc as you throw your pokeball)
- 10 XP – Nice throw (hit inside a large circle)
- 50 XP – Activating in at a pokestop
- 50 XP – Beat a Pokemon in training at a gym already your team’s color
- 50 XP – Great Throw (hit inside a small circle)
- 100 XP – Battling an opposing team’s Pokemon trainer at a gym
- 100 XP – Excellent throw (hit inside a tiny circle)
- 100 XP – Pokemon caught
- 150 XP – Beating an opposing team’s Pokemon trainer at a gym
- 200 XP – Hatch a Pokemon
- 500 XP – Evolve a Pokemon
- 500 XP – New Pokemon
The goal here is to use those 30 minutes of double XP wisely and the best way to do so is by evolving your Pokemon. This is where all those Rattatas and Pidgeys you always see around come in handy. So until you have collected about 50 Rattatas, try to hesitate from using the Lucky Eggs.
You can also visit www.PidgeyCalc.com to calculate the amount of XP you would earn by evolving all your dupes.
