About 11points.com -
1. 11Points.com is a blog made up entirely of 11-item lists. Because top 10 lists are for cowards. 2. Every list is written by one guy. His name is Sam Greenspan.
3. Sam is a writer, producer, host and kickball coach living in Los Angeles. (Well, Venice actually, but it’s basically the same, just hippy-er.) 4. He’s also the co-founder of the award-winning video site PandaSmash.com. 5. He’s originally from the Cleveland area and, although this may not be evident from this website, he’s a classically trained journalist from Northwestern’s Medill School of Journalism. Although they never mention him in the newsletters. 6. He loves lists. Enough to write one almost daily. 7. 11 was one of his lucky numbers growing up. So was 25. He liked 25 because it was Mark Price’s number on the Cavs, and Mark Price is the patron saint of all short, white, non-athletic-looking basketball players. He doesn’t remember why he liked 11. 8. He’s debating why he chose to write this list in third person, he’s finding it feels really forced. 9. He will add you on Twitter… in fact he’d love to! And please sign up for the 11 Points fan page on Facebook. 10. You can contact him via e-mail.11. It’s time to stop reading this list and start reading his others. Mostly filler-free. Mostly.

This is Photobomb -

When somebody jumps into the background of what was supposed to be  a nice picture, usually sporting a funny look on their face—thus  ruining the photo. There are numerous other ways to photobomb a  picture, pretty much, just do something ridiculous in the background.

Photoshop disasters -

Recognizing when an over-zealous editor tries to slim down a model to a size minus 8, add  in clumsy manipulation and lazy cloning and you often get missing or  added body parts.

Fail Blog -

The site prominently features pictures and videos of someone (or  something) failing at something they are supposed to do, or displaying  blatant stupidity or incompetence, captioned with the words “fail”, “epic fail” or “X Fail” (X being the activity  that the person failed at), although occasionally there are some cases  of “wins”.

Awkward Family Photos - 

Childhood friends Mike and Doug began  the blog after Mike saw an awkward vacation photo hung in his parents’  house. Realizing there were probably plenty of other people out there  with their own awkward family images, the two friends decided to create a  friendly place where everyone could come together and share their  uncomfortable family moments.  Thus, AwkwardFamilyPhotos.com was  launched. The authors started by posting a few of their own childhood  photos and those provided by friends, and the site quickly took off and  became an Internet sensation; it now receives millions of hits daily and  submissions from around the world.
