4 People Who Blew Their One Moment in the Spotlight

By Luis Prada | 464,485 Views

Some people's entire lives work toward just one moment in the spotlight. That was true for these four people, and hilariously, they blew it in grand fashion.

#4. Tsunemi Kubodera, Giant Squid Hunter

The giant squid used to be right up there with Bigfoot, the Chupacabra, and unicorns on the list of beasts we've always been assured were real by various wackos and nutjobs, but it's not anymore, because someone found that shit. A zoologist from Japan named Tsunemi Kubodera, to be exact. He scored the ultimate prize by filming one in its natural habitat. And this wasn't by dumb luck. He'd captured footage of the elusive beast before, but never alive and frolicking around in the comforts of its own deep sea home.

A cat with an IQ of 300 who knows how to purchase vacant lots in Atlantic City.

Well, Hasbro hasn't officially chosen a new piece, but the selection process relies on Internet voting, so of course it's going to be the goddamn cat. Also, there are no write-in candidates, much to the chagrin of some.

4 Reasons Pokemon Is the Scariest Alien Invasion Story Ever

By Jonathan Wojcik | 379,681 Views

The Pokemon world seems like a fun place to be, with all those friendly mutant animals willing to suffer for your entertainment. However, when we consider the evidence, Pokemon seems awfully similar to movies like The Thing and Invasion of the Body Snatchers, with a little of that black shit from Prometheus drizzled on top for good measure -- all of those adorable Pokemon could very well be mutated forms of the same alien organism, one that systematically assimilates and replaces normal life forms with horrific copies bent on taking over the world.

#4. Pokemon Imitate and Destroy Natural Species

The Pokemon world resembles Earth, except the ecosystem is crazy and horrible. Instead of several thousand species of jellyfish, for example, several thousand species of tentacool dominate the seas. A tentacool is similar to a jellyfish, only it has more superpowers than the entire Justice League, so any mild-mannered jellyfish that may have once existed were crushed into extinction long ago.


When "destroyed all jellyfish" is the first line of your resume, it doesn't really need to say anything else.
