Fake Names Celebrities Like to Use At Hotels

(Say My Name by Raffiti)

Celebrities can't just check into a hotel under their real name unless they want to be mobbed. That's why so many famous people use aliases when they check in. The name they choose is rarely random though and it can often say a lot about who they are -or at least how they want people to see them. 

Some celebrities like to go a little silly with their names -for example, Brad Pitt likes to use the moniker "Bryce Pilaf"and Johnny Depp is a fan of "Mr. Drip Noodle, Mr. Oddpong and Mr. Stench." Justin Timberlake's go-to name is a bit more clever as he likes to use "Mr. Woodpond." Meanwhile, Kid Rock's name is a tribute to Batman as he goes by "Dick Grayson" -Robin's birthname.

Hotter Than a Burnin' Stump (It's a Texas Thing)

The following is an article from the book Uncle John's Weird, Weird World: EPIC.

Whether five-alarm or just smoke-alarm, there's nothing like a bowl of Texas chili to fill a belly up.

NO BEANS ABOUT IT

If you know beans about chili, allow us to tell you something really important: Texas chili has no beans. Not a one. Maybe in other states you’ll find a bean or two. But in Texas, chili is just a fiery molten stew made of beef, onions, tomatoes, spices, and lots and lots of chili peppers. Everybody has a special recipe, but no true Texan would add a legume to the mix.

CONSIDER THE SAUCE

Chili’s past is a little bit shady since nobody quite knows who invented it or when. Some say it was invented by cattle drivers and trail hands during long cattle drives. Others speculate that chili’s origins go much farther back in time to the Mayans, Aztecs, and Incas. Still others give credit to Canary Islanders who started immigrating to the San Antonio region as early as 1723. They were known for concocting tasty dishes using local peppers, meat, onions, and most important of all, cumin.

How a Star Wars Superfan Scoured the Earth for Space Debris

Brandon Alinger takes Star Wars fandom more seriously than the average fanatic. He started building his own Star Wars props when he was 12, and at 17 talked his family into vacationing in Tunisia, where he got to see the Tatooine movie set. Alinger studied film in college, worked at the Prop Shop, and worked his way into Lucasfilm. All that time, he collected Star Wars props and memorabilia. Alinger found some internet fame in January when he appeared on Mark Hamill's Pop Culture Quest and reunited the actor with the original light saber prop he used in Return of the Jedi. Alinger gave an interview to explain his amazing journey to the apex of Star Wars prop collectors. Here's a sample:

Collectors Weekly: Why did Mark use Obi-Wan’s old lightsaber in the third movie instead of the original made from the Graflex flash gun?

Alinger: Luke had to use a different lightsaber because he lost the weapon when he lost his hand in “The Empire Strikes Back” fight with Vader. Howard Kazanjian had a lot of the production photos for “Jedi.” When we were researching the book, we found a contact sheet with photos from the very first day of filming “Jedi.” One image showed Mark Hamill on the sandstorm set—for a scene was cut from the movie—and he’s holding the lightsaber prop from “A New Hope” and “The Empire Strikes Back.” I don’t know exactly what happened. But it sure seems to me like someone brought out the old “Empire” lightsaber and then a decision was made right then and there that they needed a new prop because the “Empire” one fell into the Cloud City air shaft with Luke’s severed hand.

Read the rest of the interview at Collectors Weekly.

Summer Vacation

We celebrated the beginning of summer when school was out, then again over Memorial Day weekend, and now that the solstice has passed, it is really REALLY summer! You've been out of school three or four weeks now, and what have you crossed off your bucket list? About three weeks of video games, that's what. You might get around to going to the beach next month, and maybe camping in August, and you might remember that novel come September. Also, the color of your room will be okay until next summer.

How a Soviet Circus Clown Tried to Prove That Dogs Can Be Psychic

Ever heard of “biological radio communications”? That's the term Soviet scientist Bernard Bernardovich Kazhinskiy used for what we call telepathy. He studied the famed animal trainer and circus performer Vladimir L. Durov, who had an uncanny ability to communicate with dogs. Durov claimed to send thoughts to the dogs from his own mind.

Over the course of about two years, Durov and Kazhinskiy would conduct close to 1,300 experiments testing telepathic commands on dogs. This line of research would come to have more importance than most investigations of psychic phenomena: In the decades that followed, it would lead into a Cold War battle to obtain unconventional weapons, during which both sides tried to enhance military parapsychological capabilities and, most famously, America experimented with “men who stared at goats” in order to try to stop their hearts. As Kazhinskiy noted in his 1962 report on his work, the U.S. would eventually become quite interested in telepathy, but “it appears that the main reason… is that the results might be of great military significance.”

An article at Atlas Obscura tells about Kazhinskiy's research on Durov's animal telepathy. Although any dog owner will tell you that dogs are much better at reading minds than humans are at sending telepathic signals.

Loki's Hiding Place

This Bengal cat is aptly named Loki, because he's both clever and mischievous. He likes to play hide and seek. This video captures Loki's favorite hiding place -in the dresser!


(YouTube link)

Once he shuts the drawer, you'd never think to look for him there! Unless he purrs with satisfaction, of course. Loki's owner, josht1212, says they closed this room off to him after the video was made, because they're not sure if he can get out of the drawer on his own. I bet he could. -via Laughing Squid

The Joy Of Being Bobby Hill

Bobby Hill may not be the most physically attractive, physically fit or physically capable kid in Arlen, and he ain't exactly a smartypants neither. But there is no wiser or more tuned in kid than Bobby Hill, Texas's answer to the Dalai Lama.

Okay, that may be overstating it a bit, Bobby's more like Buddha, Pooh Bear and Curly from the Three Stooges all rolled into one lovable cartoon character.

And yet Bobby Hill seems so real, like someone we've all known and cheered for as they take on the world, unafraid to be an adorable oddball in a world full of bullies.

Gallifreytor Action - A Coin-Op Crossover


Gallifreytor Action by markwelser

The Doctor had found himself stuck in some rather ridiculous situations on many occasions, but when he awakened in a dimension that looked a lot like an old video game he knew life was about to imitate digital art. It seems the silly person he was pursuing adored old video games, and yet he felt sure the Doctor wouldn't know a thing about these archaic games. But he misjudged the Doctor, as fiendish yet foolish foes often do, and he overlooked the fact that the Time Lord had all the time in the universe on his hands- and had no idea his Tardis is full of arcade cabinets and video game consoles....

Add some cool retro style to your geeky wardrobe with this Gallifreytor Action t-shirt by Markwelser, and you'll be making Whovians and old school gamers smile wherever you go!

Denied Shorts, He Wore a Minidress to Work

Britain is undergoing a heat wave, with temperatures in the 90s. Joey Barge of Buckinghamshire, UK, couldn't take the heat at work anymore and wore a pair of shorts to his call center job. Management, citing the dress code, sent him home to change. Barge returned in a mini-dress, which is compliant with the code. Seeing what Barge did, management decided to allow men to wear shorts during the hot weather. Yet he stayed in the dress for the day.   

Read the whole story at Mashable. For men wanting some air circulation during the heat, a commenter suggested the unisex fashions of Skirtcraft. They are expensive, but not nearly as expensive as Utilikilts. -via Boing Boing

A Cold And Calculating Monster

Humans are always worrying about monster attacks and preemptively hunting down monsters so they don't attack, but have you ever wondered what monsters think about this whole messy business?

They think what we all know- humans are the real monsters, since they kill creatures of the night over and over again just because they remind humans of themselves.

So to all the human monster hunters out there I implore you- do like the folks from Pickled Comics suggest and put monsters to work as CPAs instead of destroying them- you can count on monsters!

Dog Photographer of the Year Winners

The Kennel Club in London holds an annual photography competition that puts man's best friend front and center. Winners have been selected in ten categories.

Maria Davison from Portugal has been selected as the overall winner of the competition with an image of an adorable puppy resting his head, which was placed first in the ‘Man’s Best Friend’ category. Maria began taking photos of her dogs and other pets three years ago.

After finding out she had won the world’s largest canine photography competition, Maria said: “This image was already close to my heart and it is one of the photographs I am most proud of. It was not only a beautiful, real and candid moment I got to capture, but also a demonstration of the strong bond between one of my closest friends and her dog, Yzma. Winning not only the Man’s Best Friend category, but also the overall winner prize with this picture feels really good.”

Winners in the various categories come from all over the world. You can see the photos that topped each category here, and don't neglect to click through the "special mentions." -via Digg

The Evolution Of Nintendo Consoles

Nintendo doesn't just make games and consoles that change our video game lovin' lives- they make consoles that are built to last a lifetime, and it's not uncommon to hear about gamers who own NES consoles that still work.

And now with the release of the Switch they've changed the world of gaming once again, giving us the hybrid console of the future we didn't know we needed.

Along the way there were some misses like the Nintendo GameCube, later improved by the Panasonic Q, which was basically a GameCube with remote that can play DVDs.

The Q was only released in Japan and was a commercial flop, so Nintendo discontinued it two years after it was released.

There is still one thing I've always wondered about the NES and the original Japanese version the Famicom- why didn't the NES have cool controller holders like the Famicom?

13 Actors Who Played the Opposite Gender Pretty Well

Actors know that pulling off a role as the opposite sex will really impress the audience. As far as appearances go, it's pretty easy with proper hair and makeup -and sometimes a good shave. That just goes to show that there are more differences in appearance among men and women than between men and women. But acting the part when you don't have the experience of being the opposite sex shows some real acting chops. I've tried voice acting as a man and couldn't get rid of the feminine accent. But these actors did it, and did it better than we expected at the time. See a gallery of 13 opposite sex roles at TVOM.

Bring Back Those 90s Vibes With These Totally Tubular NeatoShop T-Shirts

Saving the World by DC Visual Arts

The 1990s are back in a big way, but did they ever really go anywhere? It's not like we stopped liking all the rad stuff we liked back in the 90s, so maybe we should call it a resurfacing rather than a revival.

Either way, if you're a fan of all things 1990s then you're going to love the NeatoShop, because we have so many 90s themed t-shirt designs it's bananas!

The 1990s introduced us to some great friends, like that crazy cat and dog dude who live next door

Mad Max Junior

Remember the guy that turned his kids' Little Tykes Cozy Coupes into Mad Max-style vehicles? It turns out he works in the film industry. Ian Pfaff took his daughter Junior and his infant son Benji out to the desert and let them loose. A few specials effects later, they've recreated the apocalyptic world of the car chase movie Mad Max: Fury Road.

(YouTube link)

Just like the movie, this is short on dialogue and heavy on mayhem. Uh-oh! -via Digg

Real Laws That Are Absolutely Absurd

Bureaucracy is a nightmare and it's not uncommon for stupid laws to become enacted even when they aren't ever actually enforced -or even can't be enforced legally. TopTenz recenly rounded up ten absolutely absurd laws (most of which are in the US) and you won't believe some of them. For example, in Utah, patrons can't see someone make their drinks because poor children might somehow be corrupted by witnessing someone make a martini, but not watching someone drink it. In 13 states, athiests can't run for office -except, they can according to the Supreme Court so none of these laws are valid.

So check out the full list of ten laws you won't believe are real over on TopTenz.

Rebel Chewie - Your Face Is A Mess


Rebel Chewie by Anderson Green Devil 

Chewie's friends were always calling themselves Rebels and claiming their war plans were created to stick it to The Man, but Chewie found their wardrobes drab and far from rebellious- so he decided to jazz them up. Oh, you didn't know Chewie was a clothing designer? Yeah, every Wookiee on Kashyyyk knows how to sew, but only a few of them have Chewie's fashion sense. Chewie went with a 70s rock star look for the the Rebellion, figuring it was about as far from the orderly Imperial look as you can get, and everyone but Luke loved the look. Leave it to Luke to rebel against the Rebels, no wonder he's the star of the show!

Add some rock edge to your geeky wardrobe with this Rebel Chewie t-shirt by Anderson Green Devil, featuring one fierce sci-fi design that will make your fellow fans go bananas!

10 Services You Never Knew You Needed

(Image credit: Alex Eben Meyer)

The perfect gift for the goat-loving, grandma-hogging adrenaline junkie in your life.

1. NOSTRIL-HAIR NOTIFICATION

Nasal hair stops dirt, bacteria, and other microscopic intruders from entering the body. But sometimes the bushy gatekeepers can go overboard. If you don’t have the nerve to tell a friend or loved one that his or her nostrils resemble overwatered Chia Pets, you can use the online service Chololi to send an anonymous email. Messages can be customized to be “mild” or downright “scornful,” though you’ll need to provide details identifying the offending nostril, and how many hairs are poking through.

2. LAWN-MOWING GOATS

Clearing land of annoying vegetation can be a headache, especially when it’s on a slope. Rent-A-Ruminant, a land management service in western Washington, offers a simple solution: Release a tribe of goats to gobble up the brush. “Goats are a pesticide-free, noise-free, emission-free, economical, efficient, and amusing way to cut and discard of dry grasses and invasive weeds,” the website states. Customers include Washington’s Department of Transportation and the U.S. Navy.

3. KIDNAPPERS-4-U

Young Orangutan Escapes from his Mother

A juvenile orangutan at the Jersey Zoo was caught trying to establish his independence from his mother. She was not having any of it. The scene played out like a sitcom, and got an appropriate soundtrack.

(YouTube link)

The dialogue is not difficult to imagine.

Mom: Come along, Junior, let's go.
Kid: Aw, Mom! I wanna play some more!
Mom: It's time for lunch.
Kid: But I have having fun!
Mom: Don't you want some nice greens so you'll grow big and strong?
Kid: Haha, you can't catch me!
Mom: Why you little… come back here!
Kid: I don't wanna!
Mom: Don't make me climb up there!
Kid: Haha!
Mom: I swear, you are just like your father!

How Cults Brainwash their Members

Cults, totalitarian governments, abusive marriages: what they have in common is that someone gains total control over someone else through psychology. The shortcut term for this is brainwashing. Alexandra Stein was a member of one such cult, and later wrote about the process of brainwashing. Her PhD dissertation examined the tactics of a political cult called the Newman Tendency, which was run by Fred Newman.

Newman had controlled the group for more than 40 years before his death in 2011. After interviewing former members, I learned that group members were brought in through the various programmes, but were all mandated to enter therapy that they had to pay for. Gradually, they abandoned outside jobs and worked for the group, often off the books. They shared apartments, attended meetings late into the night, and restricted relationships with outsiders. Instead, many were set up in casual sexual relationships with other followers in a practice called ‘friendosexuality’. They were also assigned a ‘friend’ whose role was to monitor and criticise to keep them in line. Those with money were soon parted from it. Some women in the group were told by Newman to have abortions, and few had children while involved.

The Newman Tendency, like The O, fit the five features of a totalist system I had identified based on Arendt and Lifton’s work.  The first of these characteristics is that the leader is both charismatic and authoritarian. Without charisma, the leader would be unable to draw people to him or herself. Without authoritarianism, leaders would lack the internal motivation and the ability to bully and control followers. ‘Yeah, somebody taught him how to abuse people,’ a former follower said of Newman. ‘He’s charming, too … If he sat down right there next to me, I’d say: “Hey Fred, how are you doing? Are you still corrupting people? … Are you still screwing 18 women at the same time?” … But you know, he was a likeable guy!’

Not all leaders want to get rich, gain sexual favours, or grab political power. But all want utter control over others. Money, sex, free labour or loyal combatants are all fringe benefits, and certainly most leaders take advantage of these, some in a big way. But absolute control over their relationships is the key.

Stein addresses the other four features of a totalist system that yields compliant followers at Aeon. And ways of breaking out of such a system. -via Digg

Journalists Mistake College Professor For Fashion Mogul, Their Pics Help Launch Her Modeling Career

Sometimes when we're dressed to impress, looking good and feeling fine we project an air of success that people mistake for actual success and fame, which may make journalists take notice.

A few years back a professor from Fordham University named Lyn Slater experienced the effects of fabulousness emissions when she was noticed by a photographer while she waited for a friend near Lincoln Center.

This was during Fashion Week, so journalists were out in full force covering the event happening at Lincoln Center, and when they saw Lyn they felt sure she was a fashion industry bigwig:

“The photographers surrounded me and began taking pictures,“ recalls Lyn. ”Two Japanese journalists began asking questions. Tourists started gathering and taking videos and photos on their phones, thinking they had come across a major figure in the fashion industry. I was confused, but it was at that moment that my friend arrived, and we started laughing at the situation. She said to me, ’Wow, you’ve unexpectedly become a style icon.’ “

Red. Enough said.#AgeIsNotAVariable #internationalwomensday #girlpossible #iwd2017 #womenfashion #woman #red

A post shared by Accidental Icon (@iconaccidental) on Mar 8, 2017 at 5:39am PST

Now the 63-year-old professor is also a professional model represented by Elite London and she has her own fashion blog called Accidental Icon, where she teaches young people "age is not a variable" when it comes to looking good.

Former Disney Employees Discuss the Craziest Things They Saw on the Job

Disneyland may be the "happiest place on earth for visitors," but for employees, things are different. Over on Reddit, past Disney park employees recently discussed the most outrageous things they ever saw on the job. For those who think the Mouse represents a squeaky clean image, you might be surprised what those employees have seen. For example:

I worked on a ride where there was a holding area before the main room and ride. One night before close, apparently a guest had taken a shit in the holding room and everyone else tracked it through out whole queue and ride. We had to close early and every inch of our whole ride was sanitized that night. A guest seriously asked me, "There's poop on my flip flops... what do I do...?"

Many employees start off innocent when they come in, but then things like this change that:

[My] manager that told me I wasn't happy or cheerful enough so I should come in early to do a line of "pixie dust" before work. I showed up early to be a smartass, walk into her office and found her and a server doing lines of cocaine off the counter. I transferred as soon as I could but it was the same stuff in all the other areas as well. Disney still holds the title of most exciting job I've had. Over those 6 years I was assaulted, groped, bribed, spit at, whored out, and drugged. It was my sex, drugs, rock and roll experience.

You can read the full list of Reddit stories here, but be warned that many of the stories are NSFW.

Wayward Black Bear Breaks Into Home, Inadvertently Plays The Piano

Animals who play instruments on purpose are cute, and some of them seem to have genuine musical talent, but it's even cuter when a critter accidentally plays an instrument because they don't know what it is.

Security cameras caught this video of a black bear breaking in to the Vail, Colorado home of Katie Hawley, and the scene was not very fun or amusing to watch at first.

But then the bear inadvertently tickled the ivories and made the whole thing adorable again, although the humor was lost on homeowner Katie, who still fears another ursine home invasion.

When the Bus Stop Button is Broken

Some municipal buses just drive by a bus stop if there's no one waiting to get on. If you need to get off the bus there, you ring a bell or push a button to let the bus driver know. This bus in Halifax, Nova Scotia, had a non-functioning button, so they installed temporary workaround.

Meanwhile, in Mexico, this technology has been in use longer, so they know they should install the chicken out of reach of children. Genius!

A Spaghetti Western Score Style Cover Of Michael Jackson's "Billie Jean"

"Billie Jean" is one of Michael Jackson's most well known songs, and the music video for the track is still considered one of the most iconic music videos of the 1980s.

Like all classic songs from the 80s "Billie Jean" is just begging to be remixed, revisited and covered in a different musical style, maybe big band style?

Nah, that would never work, but guitarist Steve Onotera shows us "Billie Jean" sounds really cool when covered in the style of a Spaghetti Western score!
