Three Keyboard Stimpy Moon - Classical Stupidity


Three Keyboard Stimpy Moon by Dann Matthews

Stimpy came out on stage, sat down behind the keyboard, and let his magical rubber fingers run across the keys in a cacophony of jarring sounds that made the audience cringe. However, there was one little dog in the audience who wasn't cringing, one chihuahua named Ren that had a tear in his eye and a soft spot in his heart for that piano playing fool Stimpy...

Queen Elizabeth Photobombs a Selfie

Glasgow, Scotland is hosting the 2014 Commonwealth Games, which are taking place now. Queen Elizabeth II made a surprise visit to a women's field hockey game between Australia and Malaysia. Australian player Jayde Taylor took a selfie with a teammate. And who slipped into the background? The Queen herself!

Taylor admits that she planned the photo:

“Brooke [Peris] and I planned it so that when she came out the door she would be behind us. And then she came out and smiled at the camera. We were in the right spot at the right time.”

Later, they got to meet the Queen:

“The security guard led us all round and we got to meet her.

“She asked us a bit about the pitch, how we were going and told us to enjoy our time here. She was lovely, really, really lovely.”

-Thanks, Wifey!

Bunny Sends Email


(Video Link)

Cadbury the rabbit isn't up-to-date on social media, but she can now send email. Instructables member JackANDJude built an electronic trigger that sends an email whenever Cadbury presses the lever. 

She used a CloudBit controller, a roller switch, and a chopstick. It's placed on the outside of the cage to protect the wiring from rabbit teeth (bunnies love to chew on wires).

Naughty Nuns, Flatulent Monks, and Other Surprises of Sacred Medieval Manuscripts

Before the printing press, books were copied by hand, often by monks who worked for years on one volume. Those original manuscripts are rare now, and hard to read, but for the diligent student, they have a bonus. The illustrations, decorations, and marginalia often have nothing to do with the text, and are often much weirder and more vulgar than anything else in the book. These artworks are a study all their own, and have became quite popular as a glimpse into the medieval mind.

Kaitlin Manning, an associate at B & L Rootenberg Rare Books and Manuscripts, says part of the reason why modern viewers are so captivated by marginalia is because we expect this era to be so conservative. For example, few Monty Python fans realize that the comedy group’s silly animations are direct references to artwork in illuminated manuscripts. (Illuminated simply means decorated with gold or silver foil.) “I think it’s such a shock when you have this idea in your head of what medieval society was like,” says Manning, “and then you see these bizarre images that make you question your assumptions.” The wild mixture of illustrations is a challenge to our contemporary desire to compartmentalize topics like sex, religion, humor, and mythology.

Manning was first drawn to marginalia while studying at the Courtauld Institute in London, where she was able to work with some of the most significant illuminated-manuscript collections in the world, including those at the British Library. “I loved the idea that marginalia was such an overlooked part of the medieval experience,” says Manning, “so much that up until 20 or 30 years ago, scholars were completely uninterested and wrote it off as trivial or not meaning anything.”

Though the meaning of specific images is still hotly debated, scholars conjecture that marginalia allowed artists to highlight important passages (or insert text that was accidentally left out), to poke fun at the religious establishment, or to make pop-culture references medieval readers could relate to. We’ll probably never understand all the symbolism used in marginalia, but what have we learned about medieval life through these absurd images?

Manning tells us what we now know about strange medieval marginalia and what it means at Collectors Weekly. A couple of the illustrations might possibly be NSFW.

The Smallest Restaurants in the World

(Photo: Solo per Due)

Solo per Due is a luxurious restaurant in a villa in Vacone, Italy. It serves only the finest cuisine and wine for discriminating palates. If you eat there, you won't have to worry about it being crowded. There are only two dining seats in the entire restaurant.

For a bit more cash, you and your dining companion can have a firework display and personalized flower arrangements. That's why you must have a reservation to eat at the Solo per Due. The gates won't even open until your appointed time.

This is one of eight tiny restaurants described in Honest Cooking. Some of them offer less refined cuisine, but all of them have limited floor space.

How Playing an Instrument Benefits Your Brain

(YouTube link)

Playing a musical instrument involves more areas of the brain than other activities. It only makes sense. You have to use your fine motor skills to play, understand the tune, read the music, remember how it’s done, co-ordinate with other players, and watch your timing. All at the same time. And that’s after you’ve learned how to do it! Learn more in this TED-Ed lesson from Anita Collins. -via Laughing Squid

Mint on Card

(Bizarro Comics/Dan Piraro)

See this rubber mouse? It's autographed by the artist. And the toy parakeet is a limited edition with a variant beak. They made only 100 of them.

Sometimes my human servant ties to take them, but a good scratch usually deters him.

Why Do Birds Have White and Dark Meat?

This video from Sci Show presents a clear explanation of why birds have light and dark meat (and whether humans share those bodily features). Interesting information... that made me momentarily wish I was a vegetarian.

Brilliant Excavator Driver Loads onto a Truck without a Ramp


(Video Link)

A top excavator driver is a surgeon with his equipment. A complex machine like a digger becomes an extension of his own body. With it, he can push a truck, paddle a boat, or light a cigarette.

In this video, a driver in Omalloor, Pathanamthitta, Kerala, India loads his excavator into the back of a truck. A ramp? No, only amateurs use ramps. Experts do this.

The Handfish Walks on Its Fins

(Image: CSIRO)

Pictured above is the Spotted Handfish (Brachionichthys hirsutus). It's one of several related species which have fins that look like hands or feet. The Spotted Handfish lives in the estuary of the River Derwent, which flows from the interior of Tasmania into the Pacific Ocean. These fish live on the sea floor, gently pushing themselves around with their foot-like fins.


(Video Link)

The Spotted Handfish is an endangered species. Unfortunately for them, Spotted Handfish prefer to lay their eggs on Sea Tulips. The Northern Pacific Sea Star hunts these Sea Tulips, which gives the Spotted Handfish fewer places to lay their eggs.

To help them breed more prolifically, conservationists have stuck plastic tubes into the sea floor. The Spotted Handfish have responded by laying their eggs on these tubes as acceptable substitutes for Sea Tulips.

Curiosity Watches an Eclipse

(YouTube link)

On Aug. 20, 2013, the Curiosity rover looked up from the Martian surface and saw an eclipse like you’ve never seen on Earth. The tiny moon Phobos passed in front of the sun, although the 14-mile wide moon is too small to cover it completely. And since Phobos is only 3,700 miles up (compared to our moon, which is 239,000 miles from Earth), the irregular shape of the satellite is visible. Phobos is on a trajectory that will eventually result in its death spiral, which you can read about at NPR. -via Digg

Unusual Landscapes Across the Globe

     The Wave,
          Arizona


It is easy for us to get so caught up in our lives and focused on our immediate surroundings that we forget what an amazing world we inhabit. The complex stuctures formed from a multitude of environmental factors such as erosion and volcanic activity make the Earth rich with exquisite exceptions to commonly seen landscapes. Agricultural and other manmade innovations and features, such as Bali's rice terraces, can be equally pretty. Pictured here are some unusual and beautiful landscapes in the world. See more examples in this Science Dump article.

Mary Poppins Quits

(Funny or Die link)

Mary Poppins sings, dances, performs magical feats, and keeps a smile on her face while raising a banker’s kids -for $7.25 an hour. Minimum wage means he’d mostly likely pay her even less if it weren’t illegal. That can get to you over time, but Mary still keeps a smile on her face as she explains why she is quitting her job. Kristen Bell stars in the latest video from Funny or Die.

Neckties Are Stupid


I could not agree with Doghouse Diaries more emphatically. Neckties serve no productive purpose whatsoever and are uncomfortable. They're like corsets for your throat.

I do, occasionally, wear a necktie at work. It's a My Little Pony tie with a Rainbow Dash theme. Does it give the best impression? Well, let's just say that it gives an accurate impression.

Squirrel Obstacle Course Videos, Complete With British Commentary

(Video Link)

Steve Barley is a man who appreciates a good squirrel show, and he knows that we internetterly types enjoy fine squirrel footage as well, so he creates exhilarating squirrel assault course videos for the connoisseur:

(Video Link)

Steve builds the squirrel assault courses in his backyard then records footage of squirrels running through the course on video, adding the kind of real-time commentary that makes Steve Barley’s squirrel videos some of the finest the internet has to offer.

Hopefully Steve will continue to have plenty of free time on his hands in the future so he can keep building squirrel obstacle courses, and we can continue to watch him talk about squirrels on obstacle courses.

The Purge: Canadian Edition

The movie The Purge is a dystopia set in 2022. In this alternate future, all laws are suspended in the United States for a 12-hour period every year. During this time, people can commit any crime without fear of legal repercussions.

In this Vine film by Julien Sigouin, Canada has adopted this legal change, too. For those 12 hours, the innate barbarism and bloodthirstiness of the Canadian soul breaks free in an orgy of violence. So, you know: viewer advisory.

The Woman at the Wheel

Polite society told Alice Huyler Ramsey that women shouldn't drive. So she motored across the country to prove them wrong.

In 1909, driving was a man’s work. As one doctor wrote, “A speed of 15 or 20 miles an hour in a motor causes [women] acute mental suffering, nervous excitement, and circulatory disturbances.” Some worried that riding in open-air cars would lead to “automobile face,” an unfortunate—and hypothetical—condition in which the wind would blow women’s mouths into permanent gapes.

These notions were terrible for women. They were also terrible for the auto business. Sexism was cutting the potential market in half! The car company Maxwell realized that getting women in the driver’s seat would boost sales, so it put PR man Carl Kelsey on the case. But Kelsey knew he needed more than a few newspaper ads to change public opinion; he needed a spectacle. He began looking for a woman he could challenge to drive from coast to coast.

Kelsey found the perfect adventurer in 22-year-old Alice Huyler Ramsey. The Vassar grad had been out for a horseback ride the previous year when a car’s horn had spooked her mount. After the incident, her husband reasoned that cars were probably safer than horses and persuaded his wife to buck social norms by driving a Maxwell. She even competed in motoring competitions, where she jockeyed around hay bales and other obstacles.

When Kelsey pitched his idea to Ramsey over dinner, she jumped at the opportunity. Ramsey would later say, “I did it because it was a challenge and because I knew it would be fun.” She roped two sisters-in-law and a friend into joining her—strictly for company, of course; only Ramsey knew how to drive. Maxwell would provide them with a set of wheels, any supplies they needed, and a PR man to travel ahead of them to drum up coverage. On June 9, 1909, the quartet set out from a Maxwell showroom in Manhattan.

Deep Fried Tarantula

(Photo: The Bug Chef)

Get that roach out of your mouth! It hasn't been properly cooked yet. For that, you need to go to The Bug Chef. That's David George Gordon, a professional chef who specializes in preparing insects.

Gordon thinks that humanity's culinary future lies with the insect world. If your goal is to produce a large quantity of meat, then livestock insects, such as crickets, are much cheaper than pigs or cattle. They require less food, water, and land. They're also nutritious. KPLU explains:

Crickets are high in calcium, said Gordon. Termites? Rich in iron. Grasshoppers? About as much protein (by weight, dried) as beef. Bugs are really pretty good for you. The U.N. report notes that bugs have high proportions of omega-3 fatty acids, comparable to those in fish (and much better than beef or pork).

And most bugs are good protein sources. Scorpions, for instance, have lots of edible muscle tissue. “I like their tails and claws,” said Gordon. “There’s the equivalent of crabmeat in there.” Just take out the stinger first, folks.

Best of all, Gordon argues, bugs are delicious. He's published a cookbook of 40 recipes that you can use to make your insect preparation tasty. For example, you can deep fry tarantulas. Here's Gordon's recipe. It's coated in a tempura batter and accented with smoked paprika. Yummy!

Celebrate the power of crazy science with this Talking Monkey t-shirt by Eren, it's loud in color instead of volume and is sure to add some delicious flair to your geeky wardrobe.

Saturday Morning with Kids vs. Saturday Morning without Kids

"You hear laughter, which is almost more terrifying than crying." Yes. Or you hear nothing. You know that your kids are (probably) still in the house, but you don't hear them. That's when you should really worry.

Rob Fee of Mandatory describes life after you become a parent. Perhaps you used to sleep in on Saturday. But those days are over.

In my home, Saturday morning is my turn to get up with my kids. I'm always exhausted, they always wake up early, and I wouldn't trade them for anything in the world.

There's A New Squid-Faced Cryptocurrency In Town

Cryptocurrency “brands” are trying their darndest to become as likeable as greenbacks, using characters like Doge that appeal to the target audience, and since the whole thing is bordering on becoming fantasy funny money anyway it’s rather appropriate to use fictional characters as the spokesthings.

The latest cryptocurrency incarnation bears the horrifying, squid-faced visage of the Great Old One Cthulhu, and this crypto currency is guaranteed to drive those foolish enough to accept it mad with greed!

Here’s some of the strange rhetoric Cthulhu Offerings is using to get people to join their monetary "ritual"-

As the equinox approaches we begin the ritual; four weeks and five days long it builds until Cthulhu awakens and one worshipper is rewarded greatly!
The time draws near, the return of The Great Old One is upon us. Join us in our ritual.

Will you join in this monetary ritual, or let your dead presidents, and your sanity, stay safe and sound right where they are?

Elephants Surround Baby So It Doesn't Get Swept away by the River


(Video Link)

A river runs through the Elephant Nature Park in northern Thailand. When it's time for this baby elephant to take a bath, all the nannies escort him into the river. They form a wall with their bodies so that he can wash and play without any worry of being swept away by the fast current.

As we've seen before, elephants take care of kids in their herd, even if the kids aren't their own children.

Cyclist Gets Hit by Car, Flies through the Air, But Somehow Lands on His Feet


(Video Link)

YouTube member CycleJack was pedaling through Romford, Essex, UK on a wet day. He was traveling about 22 MPH. A car cut across his path and he hit the fender. CycleJack flew over the car, head over heels, but landed neatly on his feet. It was an impressive bit of unintentional acrobatics caught on camera.

And it's a good thing that CycleJack was wearing a camera. The driver tried to dispute that she was at fault. The video footage took care of that problem:

Safe to say the video has saved me a lot of hassle and 3 weeks later the cheque has already arrived from the insurance company.

Content warning: CycleJack uses a bit of foul language when the car hits. But who can blame him?
