Soup.io will be discontinued :(

Dear soup.io fans and users,
today, we have to share very sad news. Soup.io will stop working in less than 10 days. :(
It's breaking our heart and we honestly tried whatever we could to keep the platform up and running. But the high costs and low revenue streams made it impossible to continue with it. We invested a lot of personal time and money to operate the platform, but when it's over, it's over.
We are really sorry. Soup.io is part of the internet history and online for one and a half decades.
Here are the hard facts:
- In 10 days the platform will stop working.
- Backup your data in this time
- We will not keep backups nor can we recover your data
July, 20th, 2020 is the due date.
Please, share your thoughts and feelings here.
Your Soup.io TEAM

Stack the Deck With 'House of Cards' Playing Cards

The pursuit of power is nothing but a game, and people are merely pawns. Frank Underwood taught us that

But maybe you prefer cards over chess? Well, in that case, we have you covered. To celebrate the Season 2 of House of Cards, we created playing cards based on the Washington, D.C., drama. Get it? Cards!

All your favorite characters make an appearance, and since the show is dropping on Valentine's Day, we made sure they're all hearts

Who's your favorite? Hopefully not that sleazy photographer guy

Why Shaun White Losing at the Olympics Is Good for Snowboarding

There's a side to snowboarding you won't ever see on NBC or on packs of gum or Target commercials. It was represented on Friday, when Sage Kotsenburg won the Olympic Gold for slopestyle snowboarding. While all the talk leading up to the Olympics suggested that this event — on the Olympic stage for the first time — could not be won without the controversial all-flash and no-substance triple-cork move, Kotsenburg showed everyone otherwise

The trick itself is symbolic for a larger struggle in the snowboarding community between artistic integrity and commercial success. Since private corporate sponsors pay snowboarders rather than an established team or association, being a professional snowboarder requires not only skill but also good salesmanship, money and fame. It is easier to wow the crowds and win competitions with big flip-and-spin maneuvers, but it's more impressive, as Kostenburg showed us, to win without them. Read more...

52 Disney Animated Movie Locations Mapped Around the World

Looks like it really is a small world, after all.

Artist Eowyn Smith has compiled several of the magical kingdoms from Disney and Pixar flicks and mapped out their locations around the world.

Smith wrote on her DeviantART page that the map features 46 Disney and 16 Pixar movies. If a film was too vague about their location, Smith relied on the original story or myth on which the movies were based.

Take a look and see what stops you'd make on a Disney-themed trip around the world.

An Inside Look at Shia Labeouf's Odd #IAMSORRY Art Stunt

LOS ANGELES — Move over, Olympics. Make room for the real mid-February spectacle: "not famous" actor-turned-performance artist Shia LaBeouf.

Coming on the heels of a string of plagiarism problems, LaBeouf has joined meta-modernist forces with artists Nastja Säde Rönkkö and Luke Turner to officially apologize for copying the works of others and regurgitating quotes like a professional Pinterest board.

"Shia LaBeouf is sorry. Sincerely sorry," read Turner's press release Tuesday, which also urged people to visit the Cohen Gallery at 7354 Beverly Blvd. for a mysterious event. Read more...

11 'House of Cards' Valentines to Lobby Your Lover's Heart

Love is backstabbing, revenge and sweet, sweet BBQ sauce. Just ask Frank Underwood.

The House of Cards protagonist won't bring you chocolates and a teddy bear on Valentine's Day, but he will kill a man with his bare hands. He'll also sleep around with ambitious reporters, but let's not get picky.

Say "I love you...but you should understand I'm only in this relationship for appearances and mutual gain" with House of Cards valentines. It's love, only more vicious.

House of Cards Season 2 debuts Feb. 14 on Netflix. Read more...

8 Celebrities Hiding in Historical Paintings

From billboards to magazines, to television and your favorite movies, celebrities can be seen everywhere. But here's somewhere you never expected to see them: historical paintings from two centuries ago.

We found striking resemblances between eight popular celebrities and portraits from the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries. Though the hairstyles and fashions may be markedly different, there is undoubtedly a strong resemblance between the subjects of the paintings and our modern-day icons

How did this happen? Are they related? Is it coincidence? Are there time travelers? We're not sure. All we know is that the cross-generational resemblance is undeniable Read more...

This Post-it Art Will Really Stick With You

Even the tiniest work of art can make a big impression.

Multimedia designer and post-it artist Ivan Mardones doesn't need a big canvas or fancy equipment to create exciting masterpieces. Give him a tiny yellow pad of paper and a ballpoint pen, and he'll create unique illustrations both impressive and fun to look at.

Mardones started out doodling on post-its for the same reason most of us would — out of boredom

"I grabbed a post-it, pasted it on my face, and sent it to my friends. I use post-its because I can wear them all the time with me and when inspiration comes...draw something quickly," Mardones told Mashable Read more...
