Teens Attempt to Use Encyclopedia For Research. Their Reactions? Hilarious!

A group of teens were presented with a set of encyclopedias. Watch their hilarious reactions as they were asked to do some research.

A A A

Encyclopedias are printed books with detailed credible information that everyone used as a reference back when there was no internet. These books were the main source of information since the Ancient Greece and Rome. As such, academic institutions were required to have these set of books in their libraries as sources of information. However, in 2012, Encyclopedia Britannica (the most popular Encyclopedia) announced that the 2010 edition would be the last printed encyclopedia as they will focus on their online version.

In January 2001, an online encyclopedia called Wikipedia was created by Jimmy Wales and Larry Sanger. Wikipedia has then become one of the most visited websites and one of the main sources of information. Since it is a free-access, free-content Internet encyclopedia, it has become the go-to source of fast information for everyone who has internet access. This has prompted encyclopedia publishers to stop printing.

Come 2015, a few years after the last encyclopedia was published, a group of teens was tasked to research information using these books.

In a generation where Google and Wikipedia are the staple sources of information, these teens’ reactions, when presented with the encyclopedia, were absolutely hilarious.

These 13 Lovely Couples Will Help Prove that ‘Forever’ Exists

The secret to lasting relationship involves love, commitment, and hard work. We can’t make it perfect, but we can make it fun.

Single men and women often joke and say that there's no such thing as forever in relationships. Who can blame them? Children and young adults witness their parents and other older couples separate or end up in divorce. It's everywhere---in the community, news, and the internet. Even famous couples who once professed their undying love to the whole world leave nothing to their ex-partners but ugly memories, hurtful words, and lawyer's exorbitant fees.

It seems like those happily ever afters are just words printed at the end of fairy tale books. Is that the only place where we can find it? In fictional stories that were written to help lull children to sleep? And has the word "commitment" lost its meaning?

Before you run and cry in the shower totally disillusioned about love, you might want to check out these 13 lovely, old couples, who, apparently, found forever in their partner's arms. They might help restore your faith in love and romance, especially when you "see" the key to their lasting relationship.

Stray Dog Pulls a Woman Out of a Wrecked Car and Drags Her 100 Feet to Get Help

The dog came out of nowhere and saved her life!

Shannon Lorio had a bad day. She had a huge argument with her husband so she decided to leave the house and go for a drive. Out of anger, she drove too fast along the winding and curvy roads of her hometown in Pavo, South Georgia.

But then she lost control of the wheel and she fishtailed down a curve. Bloodied and severely hurt, Shannon lay in her wrecked car, worried and scared that nobody would be able to notice her or her car from where she landed.

The next thing she knew, a dog, which she hadn't even seen before, started licking her bloodied face. Then this dog pulled her out of the car and dragged her approximately 100 feet back to the edge of the road! Shannon wrapped her arms around the dog's neck and tried to pull herself up, and that's when she saw a passing vehicle, which she flagged down before she lost consciousness.

Watch How these Children Responded to this Realistically Proportioned Fashion Doll

Lammily does not have a flat stomach. She also has huge hips, buttocks, and thighs, but the children loved her just the same.

Are you tired of buying disproportionate and unrealistic dolls for your children that somehow affect their perception of beauty? I'm not saying those dolls are not good for them since I too grew up having such dolls, and (I think?) I ended up just fine.

Sadly, there are grown women out there who are trying so hard to be like those dolls, up to a point that they opt to go under the knife or develop eating disorders just to look like one. Studies show that thin dolls and action figures can have a psychological impact on children, which can influence their concept of body image and career choices later in life.

A researcher and full-time artist named Nickolay Lamm decided to do something about it. He started a crowdfunding campaign last March so he can create a doll that will defy the society's limited standards of beauty. And due to the success of the campaign, the first batch of these dolls will be out in the market soon.
