'Without You' is a hilarious Tumblr blog full of funny figure skaters who have had their partners removed from the photos. The dance of two figure skaters enables a pair to perform complicated lifts, jumps and spins that would be otherwise impossible alone, which is what makes these photos so strange to look at. The men and women who have been Photoshopped out of these figure skating pairs leave their parters in unusual twists and unnatural superhero-like flying poses.

The humorous blog comes from Christopher Hiltz, who hasn't sourced all of the figure skating pairs from Sochi, but since the 2014 Olympics are still ongoing, the timing of this blog's creation couldn't be more perfect. Stats for Partnerless Skater Manipulations Trending: Older & Popular
