You've likely seen his art shared on social media.

Yehuda Devir is a Tel-Aviv artist who illustrates his life with his partner Maya Devir in a comic series called One of Those Days.


The relatable comic series shows the joys and pitfalls of a relationship and how the couple love and appreciate each other.

Now they're taking a new step with pregnancy.

The Devirs announced publicly they were trying for a child when earlier this year they posted this comic.



The couple have been together for nearly a decade. For a few years, the couple have been making the One of Those Days comics, showing slices of their life in an exaggerated form.

They continued with updates as they tried and failed to conceive.




It's been a difficult journey, but the Devirs have shown their humor throughout. While updates on their attempts have been regular, they haven't overshadowed their other life humor. But it was on the mind of regular readers of their comic.

In an interview with Bored Panda, Yehuda explained:

"We had been trying to conceive for about a year… The hardest parts were at the end of each month when Maya used to have her period. Continuously dealing with lack of success makes you feel as if you aren't in control of your life."
"However, we've been together for such a long time that our friendship and love seem so strong, it feels like we can achieve everything if we work together. Challenges make us stronger."

People chimed in relating or wishing the couple luck.

This relatable comic is about to get a little more relatable to people who're raising children.

But that will have to wait.

In the meantime, One of Those Days is taking a break through the rest of the holidays and will return in January 2019.

Conspiracy theories are beliefs that there are covert powers that be changing the course of history for their own benefits. It's how we see the rise of QAnon conspiracies and people storming the capital.

Why do people fall for them? Well some research has looked into the reasons for that.

The Association for Psychological Science published a paper that reviewed some of the research:

"This research suggests that people may be drawn to conspiracy theories when—compared with nonconspiracy explanations—they promise to satisfy important social psychological motives that can be characterized as epistemic (e.g., the desire for understanding, accuracy, and subjective certainty), existential (e.g., the desire for control and security), and social (e.g., the desire to maintain a positive image of the self or group)."

Whatever the motivations may be, we wanted to know which convoluted stories became apart of peoples consciousness enough for them to believe it.

I hate ghosts, even if it's Casper. My life is already stressful enough. I don't need to creeped out by spirits from the beyond. Shouldn't they be resting and basking in the glow of the great beyond instead of menacing the rest of us?

The paranormal seems to be consistently in unrest, which sounds like death isn't any more fun or tranquil than life. So much for something to look forward to.

Some ghosts just like to scare it up. It's not always like "Ghosthunters" the show.

Redditor u/Murky-Increase4705 wanted to hear about all the times we've faced some hauntings that left us shook, by asking:

Reddit, what are your creepy encounters with something that you are convinced was paranormal?

A lot of talk going on about women's bodies, isn't there?

Not necessarily with women front and center as part of the conversation, unfortunately.
