Chess is definitely not for everyone. Not all people have the patience and the smarts to play it, let alone master it. It entails spending countless hours everyday just to own the game. So imagine just how great chessmasters are, especially the younger ones. To be able to become a chessmaster in your 20s is no easy feat.

Just ask Mangus Carlsen, who at the age of 25 is already a grandmaster. Beat that!

The Norwegian player was hailed as the best in the world back in 2013. Back then, he defeated former World Chess Champion Viswanathan Anand. Aside from his mastery of the game, another remarkable thing about Carlsen is destroying the stereotype of the chessplayer – older and looking nerdy.

Carlsen has even dabbled into modeling, which earned him more fans for making chess “cool”.

He recently visited the U.S. and went to Washington Square Park in New York City. At the park are people who are considered as hustlers, those who play chess for money.

So young Carlsen gamely played with them and showed them how it’s really done.

At first, the hustlers have no idea who they were up against.

You know what’s even cooler? Actress Liv Tyler was there watching and videotaping the game using her phone.

So I guess the hustlers didn’t earn from that game. But they got something more valuable – the chance to play against an actual chessmaster!

This is what the poor woman in the video below recently experienced - and it looks like it terrified her pretty bad.

Her boyfriend, YouTube prankster Derek Deso, sneaked into her bedroom and then dumped two pythons from a cardboard box on her while she was resting. He was with several of his buddies, a camera crew and a snake handler.

Scary Decals Are Your Instant Revenge On Drivers Who Blind You With Their Headlights

There are a lot of bad drivers on the road. Their awful driving habits range from the obvious offenses like speeding to irritating ones like turning up their headlights way too bright.

While speeding can be corrected by traffic cops, the effects of headlights that are too bright are often ignored. The drivers who are nearly blinded by the light just suffer in silence or curse under their breaths.

These reflective decals look quite realistic.

Woman Explodes in a Bloody Mess in Public Before She Could Get a Tampon!

For those of us who aren’t too diligent with keeping track of our periods, this hits too close to home.

The thing about periods is that it can sometimes drop by at unexpected moments. In cases when it comes a little late, it's a huge sigh of relief. But when it comes early, that's when disasters often strike.

Say goodbye to your pretty panties during period week.

You've probably experienced it before (or seen someone experience it): the rummaging through your purse for a tampon, finding nothing, looking around for any women who might have some, and the sudden realization that your best chance is stuffing your panties with tissues or running to the nearest store.
