For those who haven't yet heard, pareidolia is a psychological phenomenon in which the mind responds to a stimulus, usually an image or a sound, by perceiving a familiar pattern where none exists. To put it simply, it's a bug in the human mind that causes it to see things that aren't really there. For example, you look at a regular tap but see Ice Age's acorn-obsessed Scrat or you glance at a juicy cinnamon roll but it becomes an anguished E.T.

Kylie Jenner is teasing the first signs of a baby bump.
The 20-year-old reality star, who is expecting her first child with beau Travis Scott, shared a glimpse of her stomach in an Instagram photo wishing her BFF Jordyn Woods a happy birthday. In the photo — which was taken on Friday but uploaded on Sunday — Jenner rests her hand on her waist, slightly lifting her baggy black sweatshirt to expose a glimpse of her stomach.
“Yesterday was cute,” Jenner captioned the image with Woods and a giraffe. “Hope you had the happiest of birthdays Jordy. Love you forever ever and beyond..”
The makeup mogul posted another photo with several girlfriends on Sunday, where they’re all posing in white bath robes.
“Mornings,” she simply captioned the mirror selfie with a happy face.
One day after sources confirmed to PEOPLE that she is pregnant, Jenner headed to Las Vegas to watch him perform at the iHeartRadio Music Festival. The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star, who is expecting a baby girl in February, covered up her bump with an oversized black t-shirt and brown plastic pants.
From a VIP platform, Jenner watched Scott, 25, perform with DJ Khaled, Chance The Rapper, Demi Lovato and French Montana at the T-Mobile Arena.
Scott and Jenner are both exciting about becoming new parents.
“It is an unexpected but completely amazing turn of events that she could not be more excited or thrilled about,” a source previously said.
“Everyone is overjoyed for her,” the source added. “This is the happiest she’s ever been.”

Another insider said Scott began telling friends about the pregnancy in July. “He was so excited he couldn’t keep it in,” says the insider. “He’s been so affectionate and protective of Kylie since they found out. He can’t wait to be a dad.”
Jenner has been dating Scott since earlier this year.
Her baby won’t be the only new member joining the famous KarJenner brood: older sister Kim Kardashian West is also expecting via surrogate. Kardashian West shares two other children with husband Kanye West, Saint, who is 21 months old, and daughter North, who turned 4 in June.

“He was mainly talking to Knoxville, my puppy,” says Stefan Leroy, whose service dog received a princely pat on Sunday.
Leroy adds, “He got to play with him for a little bit. He was saying he was a good boy and beautiful looking.”
The 26-year-old former army sergeant — who lost both of his legs in Afghanistan in 2012 — says Harry, 33, “was encouraging us all.”
For Christy Wise, 30, co-captain of the US Team, it was a chance to exchange some light-hearted banter with the prince as he toured the facility.
“I was carrying my leg and he was ‘Are you carrying you own leg or someone else’s?’ ” she says. “I was like, ‘My own leg this time.’ ”
Wise continues, “He just hangs out with us. He’s all about this. He knows the athletes and is not here to take the picture and leave.”

The serving pilot of Reno, Nevada, severed her right leg when she was hit by a motorboat while paddle-boarding in the sea near Shalimar, Florida, in April 2015. When she took a dive down to swim away from the boat, the propeller cut into her.
She received a bronze medal from Harry following the 100m race. He embraced all the medal-winners in the trackside ceremony.
“I just gave him a hug and tried to keep it short,” Wise adds.

In the 200-meter race later, she came in third, after she stumbled when she kicked her ankle with the prosthetic. And then, in a moment that summed up what the Invictus Games are all about, the other racers waited for her and then hugged her at the finish line.
She says, “Sarah Rudder and I train together and are good friends. It’s all about being out here.”
She is looking forward to rowing on Tuesday. “I usually have an disadvantage because I’m an above-the-knee amputee and the other girls are below-the-knee. But in rowing it kind of evens the playing field a little.”
Leroy and Wise are among around 550 competitors from 17 nations taking part in competition until September 30 in Toronto, Canada.
Dove’s #ChooseBeautiful Campaign Asks Women to Define Themselves: Average vs. Beautiful | EverydayHappier
Every Day Happier
Dove's new #ChooseBeautiful campaign poses what seems to be a no-brainer question in asking women to choose whether they wish to walk into a building through a door labeled 'Beautiful' or 'Average'. It's obvious to us everyone should have picked the first, but (perhaps not that surprisingly) the latter was the go-to choice. Taking over five cities - Shanghai, San Francisco, London, Sao Paulo and Delhi - Dove set out to discover how women truly feel about themselves on a day-to-day basis and, sadly, as a camera crew looked on, most ladies decided to walk through the door labeled 'Average'. Some picked quickly, others hesitated and others still were pushed through the 'Beautiful' entrance by friends and family, unable to make the bold move themselves. Several women were then asked to talk about why they see themselves as nothing more than 'average' and one of the most powerful responses came from San Francisco: "Am I choosing because of what's constantly bombarded at me and what I'm

Samoas in cupcake form was a thing we never knew we needed, but now it’s the only thing we can think about.
Pillsbury just unveiled Girl Scout Cookie baking mixes, which are available in Thin Mints and Caramel & Coconut – a.k.a. Samoas – flavors. The four new mixes are for baking cupcakes, brownies and blondies — unfortunately, you won’t be able to make actual Girl Scout Cookies, because that would put a lot of 7-year-olds out of business.
“Families can try out their favorite cookie flavors in the form of brownies, cupcakes, and blondies, while they wait for the real thing once a year during Girl Scout Cookie season,” said Girl Scouts of the USA chief revenue officer Barry Horowitz in a statement.
GSC loyalists are, to put it mildly, freaking out.

Dove is continuing its Real Beauty campaign with another moving experiment that shows how insecure the average woman really is, even in the face of certain death. In a half-dozen malls in cities around the world, Dove took two identical, side-by-side entryways and marked one as “Beautiful” and the other one as, “This Door Has a Giant Fucking Tiger Behind It”. Surprisingly, women in all locations were hesitant to identify themselves as beautiful, despite the fact that the other door did have a real tiger behind it. “I guess I don’t want people to think I’m full of myself,” screamed Berkeley undergrad Rebecca Green, as the tiger viciously tore off a hunk of flesh from her leg. “I mean, I’m okay, but I wouldn’t say I’m beautiful.” The video shows women of all shapes, colors, and sizes considering the two signs before ultimately walking through the door marked, “This Door Has a Giant Fucking Tiger Behind It” and then being savagely eaten alive by a hungry big cat. Since it went online Tuesday, the grisly, touching video has nearly one million views. “We wanted to show just how loath women are to call themselves beautiful,” says Dove spokesperson Linda Weiss. “Also, we had a ton of extra tigers lying around.” The women who participated in the experiment gave vulnerable on-camera interviews while being eviscerated by one of earth’s most fearsome apex predators. “I didn’t want to die. I just wanted to go use this gift card,” admits Sao Paolo resident Gisela da Silva, while she desperately tries to wrench her remaining arm from the tiger’s merciless bite, “but I guess us women are just programmed to not love ourselves.” “When I walked through the door marked, ‘This Door Has a Giant Fucking Tiger Behind It’, I didn’t feel so good afterward,” says Yang Chao, a Shanghai-based art dealer, between bloodcurdling screams. “I wish I didn’t have to be this self-conscious about how I perceive myself.” Twitter users around the globe are responding enthusiastically to the horrifying footage of real tigers eating real women, sharing the link with the hashtag #ChooseBeautifulNotTiger. “Good God, won’t somebody help them?” says one comment. “Won’t somebody help these women feel beautiful?”

Chip and Joanna Gaines are the definition of marriage goals, but their relationship didn’t necessarily have a fairytale start.
Joanna agreed to go out on a date with Chip after meeting him and his roommate “Hot John” — who she actually tried to approach minutes earlier, but was too shy — in the waiting room of her dad’s auto shop. She had second thoughts, however, after Chip arrived an hour and a half late to pick her up.
“He didn’t apologize for being late, either. He had so much confidence. I don’t know. I can’t explain it. Only Chip could be an hour and a half late and have no one mad about it,” Joanna writes.

The chapter continues to describe the timeline of their relationship, which didn’t actually start until months after they first went out, when Chip (in typical guy fashion) finally called Joanna back.
“I’d made a bet with Hot John to see who could hold out the longest before calling our dates back,” Chip writes “I really wanted that fifty dollars from John! That’s the only reason I didn’t call.”
After they went out a second time, the rest was history.

Governor General of Canada Thinks It Would Be ‘Marvelous’ If Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Got Married

David Johnston, Governor General of Canada, told ITV that the romance is strengthening ties between the U.K. and Canada, where the American actress films her show Suits and has adopted as a second home.
“I think it would be quite marvellous and I hope it would be quite marvellous for him and obviously it will help to bring us together,” Johnston said. “But, you know, that reflects so many of the people-to-people ties that are so strong. I think about 20% of our citizens would claim British heritage so those ties are very strong.”
Johnston said that he “didn’t know” that Markle, 36, was sitting near him at the opening ceremonies for the Invictus Games in Toronto.
“ was alone but you say, I gather, there was a young lady in the audience who was watching him with great interest,” he said.

Markle was all smiles as she cheered on the athletes in the Paralympic-style Invictus Games for wounded service members from around the world. Meanwhile, Harry sat a few rows away next to First Lady Melania Trump whom he met with earlier in the day.
Toronto has become a special place for the couple. Harry made a secret detour from the Caribbean to spend time with Markle in her adopted hometown in December. The royal couple also spent Easter weekend together in Toronto. Harry also called Toronto a “home away from home” when he met with Johnston.
“Despite the distance, the media attention and everything else, there’s a real ease to their relationship,” a source previously told PEOPLE. “It just works. They are deeply happy.”
