If there could be any more proof that US gymnast McKayla Maroney has a loyal following, look no further than the internet. After Maroney saw gold slip away in the vault – an event where she is widely regarded as the worldwide champion, her unimpressed expression on the medal stand has sparked countless photo composites – each placing her in the midst of some impressive moments in time.

The image has become  ‘meme.’ A meme is essentially an image that is adopted by web users (often for reasons we can understand or explain) that becomes a phenomenon unto itself.

A site celebrating the moment entitled McKayla Is Not Impressed. was created by Gavin Alaoen, a 28-year-old digital designer based in New York. Here are some favorite pics from the tumblr account, which you can VISIT HERE.

Sistine Chapel? Not impressed.

Kardashian Wedding? Not Impressed.

Great Wall Of China? Not so much.

Nope.

Moon Landing? Hardly.

NASA Curiosity rover hits Mars? Please.

Not even the Royal Wedding? Wow.

CRAZY OR COOL? Finally The Tiresome Chore Of Laundry Is Combined With The Tiresome Chore Of Exercise.

Bike Washing MachineThat is, if students at the Dalian Nationalities University in China have anything to do about it. They’ve designed a bike washing machine that will wash your clothes while you pedal. From the looks of it, about two or three items. I guess if you have one outfit you really want to wear tomorrow, you’re in luck!

The invention, a “Bike Washing Machine” or ‘BiWa” will require you to actually bike for more than five minutes, so there’s some extra incentive to burn the calories. Which is good? That’s good, right?

The pedaling motion causes the drum of the washing machine to rotate, and blah blah you get the idea.

 

Until this thing gets mass produced, I’ll start working on my laundry bike playlist. Let’s see… ‘Carwash,’ ‘Dirty Laundry,’ ‘Come Clean…’

BACON GONE VIRAL: See How The “Bacon Weave” Will Transform Your Sandwich.

I don’t need a major reason. The reason is bacon. In any case, Food And Wine just posted a ridiculously easy instructional video for the “Bacon Weave.” It is apparently a thing, and I had no idea. It’s the key to getting a bit of bacon in every bite of your BLT (or, really anything, because, why wouldn’t you?)
