Awkward Stock Photos

theCHIVE 10 Photos Capturing Moments of Spontaneous Badassery It's easy to look badass with careful planning: Whether it's entering a prize fight, acting in intense action scenes with the benefit of careful choreography or just waiting for the crowd to gather before you jump your dirt bike over 16 flaming tigers, the common thread is always planning and forethought.

Grandma's Superhero Therapy (18 photos) A few years ago, French photographer Sacha Goldberger found his 91-year-old Hungarian grandmother Frederika feeling lonely and depressed. To cheer her up, he suggested that they shoot a series of outrageous photographs in unusual costumes, poses, and locations. Grandma reluctantly agreed, but once they got rolling, she couldn't stop smiling. Frederika was born in Budapest 20 years before World War II. During the war, at the peril of her own life, she courageously saved the lives of ten people. Aside from great strength, Frederika has an incredible sense of humor, one that defies time and misfortune. With the unexpected success of this series, titled "Mamika" (or grandma in Hungarian), Goldberger created a MySpace page for her. Initially, she did not understand why all these people wrote to congratulate her. We got in touch with Sacha Goldberger, the grandson and talented photographer to ask him more about his background and creative process. Update: This post has gone viral.

11 Deep Space Photos You Won't Believe Aren't Photoshopped It's hard to overstate the excitement back in 1990 when the Hubble Space Telescope left Earth. Scientists had worked the public into a frenzy with this thing since the 1970s, promising that without the stupid atmosphere to hold it back, its vision would be so clear, you could peer right into the butthole of God. So we didn't have a problem when it blew past its $400 million budget and landed at $1.5 billion, because that first picture would be worth every penny. What we got was this piece of shit: Via Wikipedia It was a problem with a mirror, and it was fixed with a simple three-year replacement project. #11. Via Spacetelescope.org Known in the scientific community by its more poetic name of ARP 273, this is an image of two galaxies caught in a gravitational clusterfuck after the smaller one passed through the larger one. #10.

11 Images of Nature You Won't Believe Aren't Photoshopped One thing we've discovered over and over again is that nature is always weirder than what we give it credit for. That's why, for instance, some of the most staggering naturally occurring landscapes on Earth don't look like they belong on Earth at all. They look like they were created in a lab, or beamed down to our world from a distant fold in the universe. Tell us you wouldn't think you'd been kidnapped by aliens if one day you woke up to see ... #11. That soon-to-be-eaten-by-a-monster explorer up there has obviously stumbled upon the undead carcass of an alien supercreature, one that crash landed in a cave on our planet millions of years ago.
