Owl Dances on Guy’s Head

(YouTube link)

An eagle owl in Noordeinde, the Netherlands, swoops down and lands on a guy’s head. He must not know the guy, or else why would he be constantly asking, “Who?” But he puts on a show for a bunch of photographers there, with a little dance as he’s perched on the man’s head! -via Daily Picks and Flicks

Maybe we need a story about a war that took place a long, long time ago...

Bring some Feudal era fun to your geeky wardrobe with this Samurai Wars t-shirt by Kinda Creative, it's the fun way to show love for samurai flicks and the return of your favorite sci-fi franchise!

Too Many Kings—A Game of Thrones Parody of Too Many Cooks

Too Many Cooks is a brilliantly innovative short film by Casper Kelly of Adult Swim. It starts out as a perfect parody of 80s sitcom introductions. Then it gets weird. Then it gets dark. It’s perfect and you should watch it.

And you should watch Alex Jones’s Game of Thrones version that matches the original Too Many Cooks soundtrack with scenes from that show. As you might expect, the lyrics match the gory drama:

A family is like a soup
Everyone adds an extra scoop
Mix an ounce of smile so sweet
A dash of cool to add the heat, and you’ve got
Too many Cooks

Woman Builds A Tiny 186-Square-Foot House To Avoid High Cost of Housing



Isabella Mori, 50, is a resident of Vancouver, Canada, and she found the price of housing in her home town overwhelming. Unsurprising, since Vancouver has the second most unaffordable housing in the world. Her solution? Build her own home at a cost of only CAD $39,000 (USD $30,995).

The attractive, light-filled dwelling, which Mori calls "Thousand Crow," is equipped with well-planned features such as a fan to vent the cat litter box and a number of built-in, space-saving storage solutions.   

See many more interesting pictures of Thousand Crow at Isabella Mori's Imgur post.

When Peanuts Travels to Westeros, We All Win

Snoopy, Charlie Brown, Woodstock and the rest of the Peanuts gang might be have some humorous adventures in their ordinary suburban life, but in Westeros, no one is safe from death. Artist Philip Horoton has made a few great cartoons showing what happens when the Peanuts travel to the world of George R.R. Martin.

While Philip has quite a few great comic mashups, these are so far the only two combining Peanuts and Game of Thrones, but I really hope he makes more because these are so promising already.

What Aussies Know About America

Buzzfeed had Australians fill out a little quiz about America. We can’t expect people from other countries to know all the stuff about the U.S.A. that we know, but the Aussies did their best. When they couldn’t think of an answer, they always had something entertaining ready. In naming presidents, quite a few took a shortcut and said George Bush x2, which got them most of the way to three. Other answers were Jed Bartlett, Bill Pullman, and Donald Trump. The overwhelming opinion is that fast food is our biggest export, and the First Amendment must have something to do with guns. See them all here.

What if Man of Steel was IN COLOR?

(YouTube link)

The 2013 Superman movie Man of Steel was in color, alright, but it was muted and dark, trying to emulate the look of The Dark Knight. But what works for Batman doesn’t necessarily work for Superman. VideoLab adjusted the colors to look more like the real world, which makes a real difference, don’t you think? At least its much easier for someone with less-than-optimal eyesight to follow.  -via b3ta

Bigfoot Bundt Cake

Bigfoot Bundt Cake

Big news! Bigfoot has been found...inside a bundt cake! Jenn Fujikawa over at Nerdist used a Bigfoot cookie cutter to make him appear inside this tasty treat.  

Sasquatch. Yeti. Bigfoot. He goes by so many names, yet he’s still an enigma. He could be behind that tree in the woods, or perhaps in the icy mountain of a theme park ride, but most likely you’ll find him… in a bundt cake.

Want to make it? The recipe and tutorial are available at Nerdist.

Gorgeous Glass by Niyoko Ikuta



These beautiful glassworks by Japanese artist Niyoko Ikuta play with the qualities of glass creatively mixed with geometric forms. Ikuta is recognized worldwide as a master of glass art and has collectors across the globe. Ikuta expounded on her work to the Victoria & Albert museum in London:

"I am captivated by the complexity of light as it reflects, refracts, and passes through broken cross sections of plate glass. In 1980 I began making artwork by laminating sheets of glass using adhesive and exposing the cross sections. My motifs are derived from feelings of gentleness and harshness, fear, limitless expansion experienced through contact with nature, images from music, ethnic conflict, the heart affected by joy and anger, and prayer. In creating my pieces it is like imagining an architectural space when viewing blueprints, deciding on an image by reading into the intentions of the architect, or imbuing a space with dynamic energy to bring it to life."

See additional photographs of her work at Yufuku Gallery.

Hilarious Outtakes from Some of the Best Sci Fi Shows

(Video Link)

Sci fi shows occassionally have levity, but they need to have believable drama or else they don't work. While that makes for great film and television, it doesn't give fans the best insight on how their favorite actors are on set. This awesome collection of sci fi bloopers featured on io9 shows what happens between the successful takes and reminds us that no matter how serious Worf, Scully, Starbuck and Agent Dunham appear on screen, the actors portraying them are still real, silly people.

Foods That are Great on the Grill

Grilled BBQ Chicken Quesadillas | Image and Recipe: The Chic Site

Those who like to cook know that high heat can make for wonderful delights, such as all things carmelized. When some foods are placed on the grill, sugary magic happens  particularly with fruits. One of my favorite sweet summer dishes is grilled peaches with cinnamon sugar and a little butter. I'm also a big fan of grilled pineapple. If you like grilled shish kebabs with pineapple, you know that the fruit has a more complex and delicious flavor when grilled. 

This article lists 25 foods that are great on the grill. Take a look to get some good ideas before your next grilling session.

Proposal: Give College Students the Power to Fire Professors

(Photo: Kevin Dooley)

During the Fifth Century B.C., Athenians engaged in the usual practice of ostracism. Once a year, they took a popular vote. The person with the most votes was banished from the city. Ideally, this would remove the most hated person in the city.

2,500 years later, State Senator Mark Chelgren of Iowa has a proposal that’s strikingly similar. He thinks that some professors at state universities are incompetent. But because of tenure regulations, they get to keep their jobs for life. Chelgren has introduced a bill into the state legislature that would reduce these bad teachers by empowering students to fire a single professor every year.

The process begins with the end-of-semester student evaluations. The Chronicle of Higher Education explains:

The names of the five professors with the lowest ratings above the minimum threshold would be published online. Students would then vote on those professors’ future employment — and the professor with the fewest votes would be fired, regardless of tenure status or contract terms.

Should college students have the power to fire professors in this manner?

90-year-old Pilot Still Going Strong

Photo: Caters News Agency / Caters News Facebook page

Paddy Elliot of Birmingham, UK, recently celebrated his 90th birthday, and also his medical certification to continue flying his plane! He’s been a pilot for decades, although he only took up flying when he retired at 64.

After 50 years he retired from Rover cars and finally got the chance to live the dream, gaining a private pilot’s licence in 1988.

“I spend every second I can spare up in the skies. It’s a truly unique feeling to be up there looking down on the world.

“It’s given me perspective but more importantly it’s kept me young. I may be 90 but it certainly doesn’t feel like that.”

Elliot flies at least three times a week, and flew to France for lunch last week. To keep his license, he must pass a medical certification every two years, and recently got the all-clear to keep flying for another two years. Read more about the amazing flying nonagenarian and see a video of Elliot in action. It just goes to show that you’re never too old to take up something new.

Fifteen Facts About A Clockwork Orange

Remember the disabled writer, F. Alexander, who lives at HOME in A Clockwork Orange? In a later scene with him, his musclebound assistant Julian is played by Darth Vader himself David Prowse, who was at the height of his bodybuilding involvement. Not only did Prowse have a role in the film, but he had the guts to stand up to Stanley Kubrick, which few actors ever did with the demanding and headstrong director.

Prowse took issue with the scene in which he had to carry the writer and his wheelchair around a corner and to the dinner table in one take. Kubrick, famous for being insistent on doing many takes of each scene in his films, had Prowse worried about the number of times he'd be expected to perform that feat of strength. Prowse approached Kubrick, arguing, "Your name is not 'one-take Kubrick' is it, you see?" Everyone on the set grew silent, thinking that was the premature end of Prowse's work on the film. Kubrick just laughed and told him not to worry. They got the shot in six takes, definitely a conservative effort on Kubrick's part.

Presidents Removed From Their Coins

Cutout coin silhouettes

This is fun. The tiny heads of American presidents have been cut out of their coins (oops, Jefferson lost his phony tail in the process!). The cut coins are the handiwork of a friend of Imgur user pfefferminzetea who says "some kind of precision saw blade" was used to do the dirty work. Though, there's quite a debate on how precisely the presidents' heads were removed going on over at reddit

Before you ask, I checked, cutting coins is not illegal, unless you do it with the intent to defraud.

But, I have a question, am I the only one who remembers when they used to have a cast member in Disney World's Liberty Square making cutout coin jewelry?

Just Say "No" To These Terrible Wedding Proposals

There are a million reasons why putting a ring in your prospective fiance's food is a terrible idea, but when you can't even be bothered to sneak the thing into something a little more classy than a budget chicken sandwich from your local fast food restaurant, you have to ask yourself: do you really even care if she says yes?

And of course, spelling things out in flower petals is entirely romantic, but maybe you should consult a dictionary before you ask her to "merry" you. 

We at Neatorama are suckers for a good love story, but most of these proposals at Awkward Family Photos are anything but -although I wouldn't mind a Star Wars or Pokemon proposal.

13 Secrets of Ice Cream Science

(Image credit: Jacob Thomas)

As a kid growing up in Waterbury, Vermont, Kirsten Schimoler was a regular on the Ben & Jerry’s factory tour. Now, after getting a food science degree from Cornell University, she’s moved back to her hometown and taken her dream job on Ben & Jerry’s research and development team, where she helps think up, develop, taste, and perfect every flavor that comes out of the company kitchen.

1. THERE’S A REASON BEN & JERRY’S FLAVORS ARE SO RICH

It’s partly because co-founder Ben Cohen has anosmia, or almost no sense of smell. If he couldn’t taste a recipe, he just added more flavoring!

2. THE R&D DEPARTMENT IS ULTRA ELITE

Schimoler is one of just three food scientists on staff. The remaining four members of the team come from culinary backgrounds. (One of them has the title “primal ice cream therapist.”) Together they launch about five flavors each year.

3. A FLAVOR CAN TAKE MORE THAN A YEAR TO DEVELOP

The average development cycle of a basic pint is about 12 to 14 months, but there have been occasions where Schimoler nailed a flavor on the first try. “Other times,” she says, “you’re on iteration 10 and still wondering if it’s going to work.” Which is exactly what happened with Liz Lemon Greek Frozen Yogurt, one of the few products where the name came before the flavor. “They knew they wanted to do a Liz Lemon flavor but didn’t know what they wanted it to be. We looked at so many different lemon flavors.” At the other end of the spectrum, Schweddy Balls, inspired by Alec Baldwin’s SNL skit, got to market in a record four months.

4. MOST FLAVORS START WITH THE SAME BASE

Real Life Movie Locations: No Country for Old Men

The dark and gripping 2007 Coen brothers movie No Country for Old Men was an adaptation of a Cormac McCarthy novel with the same title.

Pictured above is the Regal Motel in Las Vegas, where Llewelyn Moss hid while fleeing the relentless hitman Anton Chigurth. You can see more comparison photos here (warning: auto-sound).
