See ya: Does anybody have a VCR machine anymore? After all, most people use DVRs to record their favorite shows these days --and not on VHS tapes.
But for those of you who may have memories recorded on videocassettes, the Japanese company, Funai, the last company that makes VCRs, says they're finally stopping production of the machines.
That means if you've got a box of videocassettes you've been keeping which feature your kids growing up or videos of pets, your old house or grandparents --you may not be able to find a machine to play 'em on if you don't currently have one.
We have more proof that PRINCE WILLIAM may be the ideal dad! The future King of England is often spotted speaking to PRINCE GEORGE while down at his level and child development expert GILL CONNELL believes this is a great way to show littles they're very important.

The Republican National Convention's make-up artist just dropped the veil on what is going on with DONALD TRUMP's bronzey-orangey Cheeto-dusted potato sheen. Fashionista.com says JASON KELLY has been doing make-up for all the big names at the RNC this week. (Fun fact: PAUL RYAN likes to have his inner-eyes brightened and the tops of his ears powdered.)
Kelly says, "I know exactly what he does to himself --the tanning bed, the spray tan, he wears the goggles and you can see the (white) hyperpigmentation around his eyes.What I'll do is use a slightly deeper color and blend it into his tan so there's not an abrupt contrast. I'm ready for it."
Editor's note: So there you have it... the only person "ready for it" is Trump's makeup artist. Somehow... that makes sense. (Bartha)

Some people have WAY too much time on their hands! What would the human body look like if it evolved to survive car crashes? Artists and researchers in Australia got together and pondered the same question and came up with GRAHAM, the perfect human for surviving a car crash. See Graham HERE.

A woman in Oklahoma suffered third-degree burns from loose change.
MELISSA SECHRIST was in her sport utility vehicle on a scorching hot, 104-degree day last week. That's when a cup of spare change spilled onto her lap. Several scalding hot pennies came into direct contact with her thigh. She iced her burns, but it didn't help. She eventually headed to the emergency room for help.
