Friday morning has been an interesting one online. Here's some stories that you'll want to know about for today.

Most girls want to at least know what it would be like to look like to be Barbie, right?

Well Yahoo news has a bit of a reality check.

According to one artists' comparisons, a "real" woman shows almost no similarities to a Barbie doll.

In fact, according to the article, some woman would have to grow two feet, add some inches to their bust area and even elongate their neck to even be close to how Barbie's body is designed.

Huffington Post has a story of a dog bowl that is said to have caused a house fire in California!

Reportedly, the bowl was so shiny that the sun refracted off of it and sparked a fire.

Luckily, no one was injured and there was only minor damage to the home.

BuzzFeed has a video that will make you feel better about your bad luck.

A man racks up 99 years of bad luck in about a minute.

Check out the funny tongue-in-cheek video below!
