13 Animals Grumpier Than Grumpy Cat

Some animals, like the Quokkas and red pandas, couldn't look grumpy if they tried. While we love them for making us smile, sometimes you need a Grumpy Cat to remind you that everyone has bad days and only idiots smile all the time. Of course, when you're really having a bad day, just one grumpy cat still isn't enough.

That's where this great article from the San Diego Zoo comes in -giving you even more grumpy critters to make your frown into more of a scowling smirk. Granted, some of these animals might not actually look quite as grumpy as the legendary Grumpy Cat herself, but they're still in a bad enough mood to make me feel better.

(Photo: Jenn Harris/Los Angeles Times)

PizzaMan Dan’s is a pizzeria chain in southern California. The owner, Dan Collier, gets around in this custom classic Corvette. That’s a pepperoni pattern with $1.50 for every additional topping. He exhibited it at the International Pizza Expo in Las Vegas this week. Hopefully he also lets his drivers use it for quick deliveries.

Arguing with a Husky

(YouTube link)

He says, “So my husky stole my dad's potato skin off his plate. This was the ensuing argument.” Both Dads and Huskys are extremely verbal, so many words flew back and forth. Redditor kurtu5 offered a handy translation:

Human - Bad dog! Bad dog!

Dog - Our species decided to work together 10,000 years ago to help each other to survive! We used to share the hunt!

Human - Bad dog! Bad dog!

Dog - All you give me is boring dry food! Taste is enhanced by smell and my nose is 1,000 times more sensitive than yours! My food is so damn boring!

Human - Bad dog! Bad dog!

Dog - What do you expect? This is torture! I can't stand my dry food anymore. I love you so much and I want to eat with you!

However, the dog was eventually resigned to the fact that he will never outtalk Dad. But hey, he got a potato skin!

A Collection of Business Cards That Lend Insight Into Their Famous Holders



It's interesting what we can glean about people by certain choices they make. In the case of this business card collection, we can see who (at least, at the time in which they carried the card shown) is into simplicity, who tends to be flamboyant and who may have an ego. We can make educated guesses as to how they feel about or the significance they attach to their work by the size, shape, color, fonts and information on the cards. Business cards are the windows to the marketing soul — even American Psychos know that. 

See the full card collection here.

100 Years of Fitness in 100 Seconds

(YouTube link)

The way women have tried to stay fit sure has changed in the last 100 years. One thing you must remember is that the first couple of decades in this video were the days that women spent a huge amount of time carrying buckets of water from the well to the house, washing diapers by hand, and hauling firewood or coal for the heating stove. They deserved a good stretch!  Later, when modern appliances and office jobs replaced household drudgery, we had to get more serious about fitness. The video was made by Benenden health to celebrate the company’s 100th anniversary. -via Buzzfeed

Say "Hello" to the World's Most Photographed Tarantula

Pandora is a tarantula. She is also a model. Those two factors aren't coincidence. Pandora's owner was once afraid of spiders but eventually not only overcame her fear, but also came to love the creatures and adopt dozens of them as pets.

In an effort to get others to overcome their fear of spiders and hopefully come to love the creatures, she started taking pictures of her pets. She soon discovered that Pandora was a perfect model and in the process started posting delightful photos of her baby on Facebook and Tumblr.

Of course, if you're terrified of spiders, it's hard to say if some of her horror-themed shoots will really help, but at least they'll let you see the creatures in an entirely new light.

Rabbit King Munches on His Iron Throne

Aegon Targaryen--Aegon the Fluffy, the call him--subdued all the warrens of Westeros. Then all of the Chief Rabbits of the land surrendered their carrots. He used them to erect the enormous Carrot Throne.

Wallace the rabbit once delivered beer to members of the court using a purpose-built cart. But no longer. He played the game and played it well. Now he sits in the Carrot Throne. And occasionally snacks on it, too.

14 Things You Might Not Know About Se7en



Brad Pitt went through the wringer during the filming of David Fincher's 1995 crime drama Se7en, in more ways than one. While filming a scene in which his character gives chase to a suspect in the rain, Pitt fell and his arm went through a windshield, severing his tendon with a cut down to the bone. The cast Pitt had to to wear in order to heal his injury was 
written into the script, which necessitated a few scenes being reshot. During those scenes Pitt was forced to keep the cast hidden.

There Goes the Bus

(YouTube link)

When they said, “The bus is lost,” that didn’t mean the driver took a wrong turn. Heavy rains have left Brazil with massive drainage problems and flooding. On a stretch of the Trans-Amazon highway between Rurópolis and Itaituba, rushing water undercut the road’s foundation. On Tuesday, a bus was recorded as it was swallowed by the collapsing road, and is then washed away in the floodwaters. Fortunately, all the passengers got off the bus in time, and no one was injured. The story is in Portuguese with an English translation by Google. -Thanks, Ken Berken!

Everyone Needs A Hair Octopus

John has previously shown us what happens when we turn hair into horses, but what happens when you top it with an octopus? Amazingness. Yes, that's right. Amazingness is what happens when you top your hair with a fancy fancinator that looks like hair that is shaped just like an octopus. That sounds confusing. Just look at the pictures on DeviantArt and know you can get them on Etsy.

An Embarrassing Moment at a Press Conference

(YouTube link)

Nigel Hayes of the Wisconsin Badgers is a 6’7” elite basketball player, but you have to remember that he’s also a 20-year-old college student. During a press conference last week, he had a little fun with the stenographers that record everything for press releases, throwing out this quote:

“Before I answer that question, I would like to say a few words: cattywampus, onomatopoeia and antidisestablishmentarianism. (Laughs).”

During another press conference a couple of days later, Hayes was given an opportunity to repeat that stunt for the stenographers. He chose the word “syzygy,” but was also impressed with Debra Bollman’s appearance. And just like a 20-year-old college student, he remarked about it to his teammate while forgetting the microphone was hot. And then became quite embarrassed. His adorable reaction makes the whole sequence golden. Another thing you might learn in college besides big words: Pride goeth before a fall.  -via reddit

Better Off Dead: 7 People Whose Death Notices Improved Their Lives

(Image credit: Flickr user Great Beyond)

1. Betty Robinson

At the 1928 Olympic Games in Amsterdam, Betty Robinson, a 16-year-old student from Riverdale, Ill., won a gold medal in the 100-meter dash and a silver medal as part of the 100-meter relay team. But her most impressive athletic achievement would come eight years later, when she staged one of the greatest comebacks in sports history.

In 1931, Robinson was flying in a small biplane with her cousin when they crashed near Chicago. After she was pulled from the wreckage, emergency workers declared her dead. Her body was placed in the trunk of a car and driven to a mortician, who realized that she was still alive. Robinson had suffered a concussion, a broken leg, a cracked hip, and a crushed arm. She would spend a total of seven months in a coma, followed by another six in a wheelchair.

Miraculously, after just three years, Robinson was able to walk again. And before long, she was running. Within three years, she’d resumed training and was up to her previous speed. But because she couldn’t bend her knees enough to crouch in the official starting position, she wasn’t qualified to compete in most races. She could still pass a baton, though. So, at the 1936 Olympics in Berlin, she was allowed to be the third runner in the 100-meter relay team. Although the German team led for most of the race, their final runner dropped the baton, and the U.S. team sprinted ahead to win by eight yards. Just five years after she’d been delivered to the undertaker, Robinson won her second Olympic gold.

2. Edward V. Rickenbacker

Edward Vernon Rickenbacker was an ace fighter pilot and one of America’s most dashing heroes. During World War II, he was sent to deliver a message to General Douglas MacArthur, who was leading the Pacific campaign from New Guinea. But in October of 1942, tragedy struck when Rickenbacker’s B-17 went down somewhere in the Pacific Ocean. After weeks of searching for his body, newspapers declared the war hero dead.

Twenty-four days after the accident, Rickenbacker and six of his companions were found alive, floating on a raft in the middle the ocean. Headlines nicknamed the pilot “Ironman Eddie” and “That Indestructible Man of Aviation.” Rickenbacker was thankful to have survived, but the weeks of starvation and dehydration had token a toll on his physical and emotional health. He and his men had to watch, helpless, as one of their ranks died aboard the raft. After Rickenbacker returned to health, he set about making certain that no soldier suffered such pain again. He used his fame to encourage the U.S. Air Force to design new life rafts equipped with radios and emergency supplies. Fittingly, they became known as “Rickenbackers.”

But Rickenbacker’s work was far from over.

Dogs Look Surprisingly Beautiful With Hair Buns

As someone with hair down to her waist, I pretty much live with my hair in a bun. That being said, I don't think I could ever even begin to compete with the gorgeous hairstyles on these precious pups -particularly that one up at the top there who could easily be a model for the perfect donut bun.

How to Wash Your Bald Head in Space


(Video Link)

Either Nature has blessed you with an unadorned head or you have removed those unsightly follicles from your pate. No matter how you came to live the bald lifestyle, you’ll need to wash your head. That’s a bit tricky in the very low gravity that astronauts on the International Space Station contend with.

Luca Parmitano, an Italian astronaut, shows us how he cleans his head without spraying water everywhere. Enormous globs of water adhere to his bare dome and remain in place until he wipes them away with a towel.

Chief Boyardee - Bullets And Beef-A-Roni


Chief Boyardee by Dan Capitumini

Master Chief grew tired of all the killing and planet hopping, so he decided to reexplore one of his interests from his pre-Spartan days- cooking. He took some time off and started developing recipes that all beings could appreciate, and with a little Navy funding he was ready to share his culinary skills with the universe. However, Chief is not a creative guy, so when it came to branding he simply adopted the name of an old chef from the 20th century, dubbing his brand Chief Boyardee. His food products soon made their way onto store shelves across the galaxy, and people started gobbling up Chief's pasta, until his sales took a hit due to an unexpected outbreak of Sanghelian ecoli...

Ten Astounding Abilities from Rare Medical Conditions

YouTube Link

The article linked below features ten cases in which people, due to strange and rare medical conditions, have abilities unlike those of the general population. Their senses may be incredibly acute. They may have "superhuman" strength. Or in the case of Lizzie Velasquez in the video above, they are unable to gain weight normally.

While some of these conditions sound like enviable states of being, many are debilitating problems that render the lives of the affected a daunting, daily challenge. Yet with the incredible grace and perseverance of people such as Velasquez, the "afflicted" can change the lives of people who are much less physically challenged but have yet to master positive mental attitudes about their own lives.

Read about nine other people with amazing abilities due to unusual medical conditions here.

Deep Fried Nachos on a Stick

(Photo: ESPN)

In the United States, professional sports are highly competitive. But designing the foods served at games may be even more competitive. Stadiums and ballparks across the country strive to offer extreme, one-of-a-kind foods to fans. These foods served at the concession stands include calorically gifted delights, such as horse collar sausages, bratwurst lollipops, and bacon donut hot dogs.

The current champion in this ever-shifting field is the deep fried nacho stick. Miller Park in Wisconsin, home of the Milwaukee Brewers, offers Inside the Park Nachos. This delicious concoction consists of a stick of beef covered with refried beans, rolled in crunched Doritos, then deep fried and covered with sour cream and cheese.

It’s a practical food to eat while watching a game because you can eat it one-handed. It’s considerably less messy than handling a tray of nachos. You can read more about the Inside the Park Nachos at ESPN (warning: auto-start video).

Friend's Advice Inspires Man to Lose 390+ Pounds

YouTube Link

Brian Flemming was once a 625-pound alcoholic who consumed over 6,000 calories and a fifth of vodka daily. Flemming made a new friend in 2012 who gave him a "tough love" lecture that prompted him to think about his life in a new way. After his friend-induced epiphany, he immediately launched into a campaign of diet and exercise that led to his shedding over 390 pounds.

Yet Flemming has a number of pounds he still hopes to lose in the way of loose skin. His friends are helping him raise funds on GoFundMe to help pay for the costly surgery. Flemming's message to others in similar positions as his before he started his transformation is inspirational.

Tortoise Gets 3D Printed Shell

(Photo: Denver Post)

Cleopatra, a leopard tortoise in Golden, Colorado, suffers from pyramiding. This means that the scrutes of her shell did not grow evenly, but pushed up, forming pyramid-like structures. The pyramids make her vulnerable to other tortoises, as well as make it difficult for her to right herself if she gets flipped over. Holes that formed along the borders also make her susceptible to infections.

Roger Henry, a design student at Colorado Technical University, responded by building her a protective outer shell. He spent about 600 hours developing a design that would fit precisely over her shell. Then he built it with a 3d printer. Cleopatra has adapted to it well and is enjoying a healthier lifestyle as a result.

Teletubbies are Horrifying in Black and White

This terrifying photograph has gone viral on the internet over the past 24 hours. Once upon a time, when almost every TV was in black and white, shows were lit in a way that made them look normal. But the Teletubbies are pretty much defined by their colors, and the bright cheerful colors of their surroundings. Without that palette, they are plastic soulless aliens.

Vanyaland mentioned that the picture reminded them of the creepy Joy Division video for their song “Atmosphere.” Within hours, Christopher G. Brown had the mashup ready for YouTube.

If anything can be creepier than the still picture, it’s the moving pictures of the colorless Teletubbies.

New Exercise Craze: Getting Chased by Wild Wolves

It’s a prank by the great Obvious Plant, who obviously planted this flyer at his local 24 Hour Fitness gym. It’s 1 of 3 that he’s played on the impressively patient gym staff. Trainer Chuck M. has a brilliant idea for staying in shape. Humans didn’t evolve to sit at desks or ride bikes. Our primitive ancestors didn’t have crossover machines. They got their exercise in everyday life by chasing and being chased by wild animals. So get in shape the natural way.

What Could Possibly Go Wrong?

Fish Comes with Bonus Crocodile

Ben Stack was fishing just off Cape York, Australia, and caught a Threadfin. That’s a fish. But the line went taught, and Stack thought the fish had hidden under something and got the line caught. He slowly started to pull up a heavy weight, expecting a log to come up with the fish. He even leaned over the side of the boat to get a good look.

What took place in the next few seconds felt like a lifetime. Or was it that I felt like my life only had a few seconds. First, I saw a bit of silver, then I saw my lure with the fishes mouth wide open. I lifted the leader some more and leaned over further to see what the fish was hooked up on. It was at this moment, I realised I was staring eye to eye with a solid salt water crocodile. We were face to face and no more than 20 inches apart. Fright kicked in, I released the leader and flew backwards into the boat.

It was a frightening experience for Stack, and not a good day at all for the fish. Read Stack’s full account at Facebook. -via Arbroath

ISIS Activity Making Travel to Tunisian Star Wars Sets Questionable



Earlier this month I wrote about 21 Abandoned Movie Sets That Everyone Can Visit. One such site was the complex of buildings in Tunisia that served as the set for Luke Skywalker's home planet of Tatooine. Yet recent developments have led government officials in countries including Britain and the United States to caution tourists against visiting a number of areas in Tunisia, including some relatively near destinations with remnants of Star Wars sets. 

It seems that the Tunisian city of Tataouine has become a "way station" transit point for terrorists looking to enter Libya to join ISIS. The city Tataouine, the name of which inspired the name Tatooine in the film, is some 60 miles from the Libyan border. The United States Embassy warns travelers to stay away from border areas. The British government cautions against "all but essential travel" to a large expanse that includes Tataouine as well as the sites of a number of Star Wars film locations, including Nefta, the location of the exterior scenes representing Luke Skywalker's childhood home.

Recently ISIS has been overtaking and controlling territories with intent to establish a caliphate (Islamic government). It is estimated that the terrorist organization controls one third of Syria and is quickly making gains in Iraq. Read more on the story here.
