Barbie's proportions are so unrealistic that if she were human she would not be able to walk upright.

That information comes from a PSA uploaded to Vimeo by Vianca Lugo that details the impossible body expectations toys are setting. 

The captivating video states, "If Barbie were a real woman, she's have to walk on all fours due to her proportions."

It goes on to say that the world-famous doll would be "7'2 and weight 101 pounds" and that she would die from "malnutrition."

It's no secret that Barbie isn't the best example of an attainable appearance. 

Last year, an artist did a rendering of Barbie with no makeup on, while another created a Barbie with the proportions of an average 19-year-old woman

Vianca Lugo's clip also reveals statistics about teenage steroid usage and diet prevalence. Watch it above and tell us what you think.

Stop whatever you are doing and watch the following video.

It is equally parts uncomfortable and uproarious.

Sitting via satellite for an interview with KTLA this morning, Samuel L. Jackson was asked by anchor Sam Rubin about reaction to his Super Bowl commercial, initially acting confused over the question before realizing the mistake Rubin made.

I'm not Laurence Fishburne, Jackson then bellowed, refusing to let the reporter off the hook for a solid 90 seconds.

Watch Jackson GO OFF on Rubin now, explaining how all African-American actors are not the same and how he's not Morgan Freeman, either...

Where does this rank among all-time hilariously awesome/awkward moments in news history?

Flappy Bird, the addictive mobile game that flew to the top of the iPhone and Android app downloads charts in recent months, has now flown the coop.

A tweet from the creator suggested that its huge success had become a burden for him personally, despite the insane sums of money he banked.

"I am sorry 'Flappy Bird' users, 22 hours from now, I will take 'Flappy Bird' down," developer Dong Nguyen wrote Saturday. "I cannot take this anymore."

What is the "this" he's referring to?

Nguyen, a Vietnamese developer with a studio called DotGears, did not reply to interviews request, but has previously said that the game "ruined" his "simple life."

"It is not anything related to legal issues," he said.

"I just cannot keep it anymore."

Some trolls end up under bridges, some trolls end up in jail for not covering their digital tracks.

A British woman angry with her father and step-mother set up fake Facebook accounts in their names and then used the accounts to send herself abusive - and often explicit - messages.

24-year-old Michelle Chapman kept up the posts for more than a year and then reported them to the police.

Authorities questioned her puzzled family and even detained her step-mother before tracing the accounts back to Chapman's own computer.

Officers report she was seeking revenge on her father for past grievances and was trying to break up his marriage.

Her defense attorney argued Chapman suffers from mental health problems, but that didn't prevent the court from sentencing her to 20 months in jail.

Sexting isn't just a bad idea, it can also land you in jail.

After receiving an anonymous tip of nude photos posted on a Twitter account, the James City County Police Department in Virginia has charged a 16 year old girl with one count of distributing child pornography... for pictures she took of herself.

The nude selfies were shared on Twitter as well as sent to some boys. Police say the lewdness of the photos crossed the line from sexting to child pornography. 

The teen and her mother could be forced to complete a Sexting Education class as well as facing jail time.

Anyone who has the photos and shares them with friends could potentially be charged with distribution of child pornography. 

The girl's phone was confiscated as part of the investigation, which might be the only part of this story that doesn't leave me shaking my head.

Check out some selfies that are less likely to land people in jail...

The grand opening of a parody coffee shop called “Dumb Starbucks” in Los Angeles' Los Feliz neighborhood became an Internet sensation this weekend.

The mock store is nearly identical to a typical Starbucks location, with tumblers for sale and trendy CDs, including "Dumb Jazz Standards," on display.

The menu features “Dumb Iced Coffee,” “Dumb Frappuccinos,” and a “Wuppy Duppy Latte” ... and pastries straight from their supermarket packaging.

Only iced coffees and lattes were available, though - for free, to promote the business - an upbeat barista told people after apologizing for the wait.

As word of the shop spread online, curious residents came to snap selfies in front of the sign or photos of the line wrapped around the strip mall.

Rumors about the Dumb Starbucks store’s origin spread through the crowd. Is it a marketing ploy? A pop-up art installation? A reality TV show?

Whatever it is, it's very L.A.

A thousand students recently checked into a Kentucky hotel and what did they do? They sang their little patriotic hearts out in unison, of course!

Michelle Johnson, who was on a work trip staying in the same location, caught the youngsters belting their number on video for all the Internet to see. 

What a world we live in, folks. The group collectively belted out the Star-Spangled Banner for yourself in the video, as you can see. U-S-A! U-S-A! U-S-A!

The teens stood on 18 different levels of the hotel and sang the national anthem together in honor of the Olympics. The results are pure magic. 

Calling the cast of Glee! These kids are giving you a run for your money, guys...

Google's home page is not only celebrating the start of the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympic Games, they're taking a stand for equality. 

Their latest Doodle represents sports from the Winter Olympics in its letters. The images are set in front of a series of rainbow colors from the gay pride flag, a probable nod to Russia's stance on gay rights.

Olympic Google Homepage Doodle

Below the search bar is a quote from the Olympic Charter, which gives individuals the "possibility of practicing sport, without discrimination of any kind."

Russia has been under immense criticism for their position on gay rights following legislation that bans pro-gay "propaganda" that could be accessible to minors. 

The 2014 Sochi opening ceremonies are set to begin tonight. 

What do you think of Google's logo?

Just one week after a newborn baby boy was named one of the largest ever born, he's no longer even the largest on record in California in 2014.

Sosefina Tagalu of Daly City, Calif. delivered Sammisano Joshua Talai Otuhiva in August, but had no idea he might be the biggest ever in the state.

"Everyone was guessing before we weighed him," said Tagalu to The Huffington Post. "The nurses were guessing 10 or 11 and the doctor guessed 14."

The result: 16 pounds, 1.7 ounces.

The family did not tealize the birth may have been a record breaker until another California baby, Andrew Jacob Cervantez, made headlines in January.

At 15 pounds, 2 ounces almost a full pound lighter than baby Sammisano, newspapers hailed Cervantez as "the largest baby ever born in California."

So much for that!
