When it comes to exploding rats, Russians infiltrating a suburban mall and a psychokinetic girl fending off otherworldly monsters, Stranger Things is never in short supply of unusual phenomena.

But you know what?

There are no stranger things than being on the internet.


Fans of Netflix's Sci-Fi hit that takes place in the 1980s are getting their acid-washed jeans and scrunchies in a bunch over a jaw-dropping phenomenon that is weirder than the Upside-Down.

The unlikely bromance between Dustin and Steve – portrayed by Gaten Matarazzo and Joe Keery, respectively – has become what many viewers regarded as a highlight from season two.
Now one amazing observation regarding those two is becoming a huge trending moment.

Twitter user Trevor White uncovered old photos and pointed out that a younger David Harbour – who plays the chief of police Jim Hopper from the show – looks just like Steve, while an adolescent Patton Oswalt looks exactly like Dustin.

Harbour, 44, and Oswalt, 50, are friends in real life.

And based on the juxtaposed photos above, the younger gentlemen perfectly rocked their 80s coifs just like the characters they are being compared to.

So far, Oswalt responded to the viral madness.

Twitter is eating this up like a hot dog on a stick.








Fans have but one request of Harbour and Oswalt.



Eleven has only this to say.

There's only one way to recover from this Stranger Things mania: gorging on the USS Butterscotch from Scoops Ahoy from the Starcourt Mall.

See you there!

You can get season 1 & 2 of Stranger Things in retro packaging designed to look like VHS tapes here.

As morbid as it is, death is the inevitable yin to life's yang.

The inevitable end of our mortality looms ahead for all of us, but hopefully it's not for a long time.

That doesn't mean there are close calls along the way.

Not everyone is fortunate, but there are the lucky few who somehow managed to cheat death and lived to talk about their close calls.

A "fun fact" refers to a piece of information that might not be widely known.

Though, the "fun" in "fun fact" is often widely debatable.

Indeed, more often than not, people find or are told a "fun fact" about anything from an animal species to a famous celebrity which might make them want to cry or even throw up.

We've all heard some conspiracy theories about certain businesses, most of which are outrageously false.

That laundromats are simply a facade for shadier practices (including, not so ironically, money laundering) or that the Coca-Cola company invented "New Coke" with the express purpose of improving sales on original Coke.

But every now and then, we can't help but wonder what really goes on behind closed doors in certain professions.

And are eager to hear all the juicy tidbits from people working in that industry.

Finding a healthy work/life balance is extremely difficult.

Depending on their jobs, some people are barely home in time to spend any quality time with their loved ones, and weekends are hardly relaxing, as they are often devoted to chores and errands.

These are only a few reasons many people have pushed to adopt four day work weeks.

And while there seem to be multiple advantages to one's mental health and self-esteem, could eliminating 8 hours of work possibly have any downsides to it?
