Heavenly Photos Taken From An Airplane Cockpit

Flying a plane seems like a nerve-wracking experience, especially when people are relying on you to fly them safely to their destination, but one of the rewards is that heavenly view pilots get to see from the cockpit.

In fact, pilots get to see such breathtaking sights it's a shame they can't snap pics the whole time they're flying the plane!

But some pilots, such as photographer and Senior First Officer Christiaan Van Heijstfind, find the time to shoot and fly, capturing the breathtaking sights only pilots get to see.

Christiaan is a self-professed lover of natural light, which is the only light available while shooting through a cockpit window, but the long exposure times often make the pilots look like ghosts.

The $21,000 Airplane Seat

Casey Neistat makes videos about his life that make the rest of us wonder why we even bother. He recently managed to get an upgrade on his Emirates Airlines flight from Dubai to New York City. First class on the flight is a $21,000 ticket, but since empty seats make no money, he was glad to help them fill the section. And show us what first class really is.

If you’re going to be a plane 14 hours, there’s no better way to do it. Read more about Neistat’s airline adventure at Money Inc.

Underrated X-Men Who Are Secretly Awesome

(Image Link)

There have been so many mutants on the X-Men roster it's hard to keep track of them all, and minor league mutants like Jubilee and Shatterstar are often overshadowed by A-listers like Wolverine and Jean Grey.

But certain eras of the comic saw dozens of new members joining the X-Men, and even though these newbies were overshadowed they had to be secretly awesome to join the X-Men, right?

Shatterstar is a Liefeld creation, but don't hold that against him, because this badass from Mojoworld is not only one of the strongest fighters to ever join the X-Men- he's a trailblazer for gay characters in comics.

And speaking of blaze- Jubilee's plasmoid "fireworks" are often described as being nothing but flashes of light, but like most mutant powers she just had to learn how to control it to unleash its full potential.

Get A Tattoo, Get Free Burgers For Life

Like burgers? Live in Australia? Well, you could get free burgers for life from Cafe 51 if you get a burger tattoo. Not just any burger tattoo will work though, you have to go through an application process and if you get approved, then you have to get a life size tattoo of one of their extreme burger creations with their logo. So far only one person has actually gotten their tattoo, but the restaurant has recieved over 3,000 applications, so I guess there are quite a few Australians that are dying for a free burger every day.

10 Secrets of the White House Calligraphers

In 2013, pundits criticized the Obama administration for spending nearly $280,000 a year on three White House calligraphers. Here’s what you need to know about every art major’s dream job.

1. They’re a White House staple.

Calligraphers have worked at the White House since John Adams started sending guests fancy dinner invites back in 1801.

2. They design everything!

Proclamations, citations, military commissions, special announcements, menus, place cards, invitations, official greetings, and even signs for the White House vegetable garden. One day, a calligrapher might inscribe the name of the Presidential Medal of Freedom winner. The next, they might pen a menu for a visiting monarch.

How an L.A. Printer Kept the Art of the Album Cover Alive

As music media became digital in the ‘80s with CDs, and later on with MP3s and now streaming, many audiophiles missed the rich analog sound of vinyl albums. Along the same route, the smaller media lost the visual art of the album jacket. There was less room for art, and forget liner notes. We missed those, too. That’s why there has been a resurgence on the old-fashioned vinyl record album in the last few years. And the  Stoughton Printing Company is ready to print new album covers, just as they have since 1964. Founded by Jack Stoughton, Sr. the company carries on in the 21st century under the direction of Clay Stoughton and his brother Jack Stoughton, Jr., who tells us about the early days of the business.  

“The Old Style jackets—that’s our trademarked name—can be printed on a variety of papers, substrates of any sort, really.” Jack Jr. says. “It can be book cloth, paper, foil, lots of different things, which gives you the ability to create many types of looks. We have highly specialized machines that are strictly purposed to make the Old Style jackets, be it an Old Style single, an Old Style gatefold, a gatefold single, you name it.”

If there’s a secret sauce to Stoughton, one of the ingredients is certainly its people, many of whom have been with the company for a long time, which means the institutional memory at Stoughton runs deep. “Some of our employees have been with us for decades,” Jack Jr. says. “They’ve seen it all.” Just as important is the fact that for every Led Zeppelin or Jack White, there have been countless other musicians of lesser acclaim who have turned to Stoughton to print their album art and design the packaging encasing their vinyl.

“When we started out,” Jack Jr. says, “we appealed to independent labels and artists. That was our niche. We had one customer, way back when, who sold his car to help pay for his record pressing. We had printed his jackets, so he came out here on the bus from Hollywood to City of Industry, which was about 25 miles eastbound. He probably made five or six bus transfers to get here. All he wanted was one box of 100 jackets, which he was going to take to the record-pressing plant so they could stuff them with his records, which he wanted to sell at a show that night. The jackets were ready, so we drove him and the jackets to the record-pressing plant, waited for them to get stuffed, and then took him home. He called us the following Monday to say he had been able to sell around 240 records that night, which effectively paid for his entire project. I couldn’t tell you that young man’s name today, and I don’t even remember if he went on to have any hits. But that was the way my dad treated everybody. In part, it was because you never knew who was going to be the next million-seller, but it was also to honor the dreams independent artists brought to us.”

Stoughton Printing Company is such a historic part of the record industry that the International Printing Museum is readying an exhibition called “The Music of the Presses: The Stoughton Printing Company Vinyl Jacket Collection” to open October first. Read about the history and the art of record jacket printing at Collectors Weekly.

The People Who Slowly Turn to Bone

Stone Man Syndrome is a very rare condition in which a person’s tissues turn to bone. Ratherm when the body tries to repair anything, it uses bone tissue, even when that's not appropriate. The disease so rare that even identifying it is difficult, much less getting funding for research into it. Some of the images in this video may be disturbing for sensitive souls.

Nyarlathotep - Can I Play With Crawling Chaos?


Nyarlathotep by Azhmodai

You know what they say- the harder a god's name is to pronounce the more messed up and wicked the god, which is why Nyarlathotep has such a fearsome reputation.

But believe me- compared to Great Old Ones like Cthulhu, or that oozing mass of carnivorous goo Shub-Niggurath, the Crawling Chaos isn't such a bad being after all!

Guys Taste Test A $4 Burger And A $777 Burger To See How They Measure Up

Foodies are paying a fortune these days for basic burgers they believe to be "gourmet" because they're made with upscale ingredients that make them worth the inflated price.

But just because your $777 burger has lobster, foie gras and 100-year-old balsamic vinegar on it and comes with a bottle of Dom Perignon doesn't make it much better than an $18 burger.

(YouTube Link)

Keith and Steven from BuzzFeed Video taste tested a $4 burger from The Habit Burger Grill, an $18 burger from Gordon Ramsay's BURGR, and the ridiculously decadent $777 burger from Burger Brasserie, which they both agreed was an "experience" to eat.

Surprisingly, the average price for a Burger Brasserie's burger is about $15, but seeing as how it's located in the Paris Las Vegas Hotel they're probably hoping high rollers will drop the dough just for the bragging rights.

Priorities

This is how I operate when I’ve got a feature article deadline looming. The more I think about it, the more I remember the email, the dishes, the garbage, the bill that needs to be paid, and the nap I really need. Comic artist Sarah Andersen knows she’s not the only one.

Meet The World's Tallest Teenager

Some kids don't get their growth spurts until high school, and a rare few don't have a growth spurt until college, but Broc Brown, the world's tallest teenager, was practically born taller than his peers.

In kindergarten he was 5'2", he hit the six foot mark before he officially got his "growth spurt", and at age 19 he is currently 7'8" tall...and still growing.

Broc has a genetic disorder called Sotos Syndrome, also known as cerebral gigantism, which causes "excessive physical growth" and may cause health issues such as hormonal imbalance, scoliosis and heart and kidney problems.

But despite the chronic pain Broc feels he manages to keep a smile on his face and live like a normal teen, and doctors say Broc will probably live a long and healthy life despite his disorder.

Here's hoping all your dreams come true, Broc!

Animated Indiana Jones Fan Film

Animator and lifelong Indiana Jones fan Patrick Schoenmaker produced an opening sequence for an Indiana Jones TV series. The only problem is that there is no animated Indiana Jones TV series. At least not yet.

(YouTube link)

Schoenmaker (previously at Neatorama) did some artwork for Lucasfilm to promote Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. This animated sequence has been a side project of his ever since, and it’s finally been unveiled. He talked to Inverse about it.

My main idea was not to make a trailer that would have just been an excuse to take some random scenes and edit them together to look cool. I wanted a story, but I didn’t have the time to make it a full short, so instead, I came up with something like the intro to the Batman animated series.

It boiled down the feel and essence of any Batman story into a one-minute intro. It’s a great short film by itself because it makes you hungry for the episode, so I took that approach.

Well, there he’s nailed the biggest flaw in the video: it’s too short. If Lucasfilm would just hire him, he could work on Indiana Jones full-time. -via Den of Geek

Debunking the Myth of the ‘Real’ Robinson Crusoe

Daniel Defoe published his book Robinson Crusoe in 1719, at a time when stories of shipwrecks, pirates, and castaways were hot, and there were plenty of narratives available. His book survived better than other accounts because it was particularly well-written and gripped the public’s imagination. And it was fiction, so therefore not constrained by actual events. After Defoe’s death, scholars pointed to the true story of pirate Alexander Selkirk as the main inspiration for Robinson Crusoe. But that’s not the whole story. According to Auburn University professor Paula Backscheider, there were other influences that can be traced directly to Defoe.

Take Robert Knox, for example. After his shipwreck on Ceylon, now Sri Lanka, he was held captive for 20 years (closer to the amount of time that Crusoe spent on an island).

“He started his own little corn business,” Backscheider says. “He even made little wool caps, and Defoe knew him personally.” This and other tales suggest that there were many people who influenced Defoe.

Backscheider says Defoe scholars are tired of the assumption that Selkirk’s story was the inspiration for Crusoe, rather than just one of many survival narratives that Defoe knew about. When people bring it up to them, “we just giggle,” she says.   

National Geographic explains several of the ways the tale of Robinson Crusoe differed from that of of Alexander Selkirk, and more about the other stories that were just as influential.

Photo Series Reveals How Our Facial Expressions Change When We Get Undressed

Societal standards state we must wear clothing when we're out in public, and this standard of decency has made some feel self conscious about their naked bodies, or at least when they're naked around other people.

This nudity-related self-consciousness causes people to make certain facial expressions whenever they're naked around an unfamiliar person, expressions that sometimes include a nervous grin.

Photographer Dylan Hamm reveals people's facial expressions before and after undressing in his series "Naked Faces", a side-by-side portrait series that challenges viewers to guess which one's the nudie pic.

Life hacks can help you improve your organizational skills and teach you easier ways to do things, but they can't turn a slacker or a flake into a punctual and reliable person.

However, with a little social life hackery you can fool people into believing you're not flaky by making up totally believable excuses for your behavior. 

Did you wake up late to meet your friends, who have been waiting over half an hour for you? Tell them you've been stuck in traffic and will be there in 5 and buy yourself more time!

Even the flakiest flaker or slackiest slacker can benefit from learning these 6 life hacks illustrated by Nathan Yaffe, who proves life hacks don't have to involve making change.

The World's Strongest Cup of Coffee

Some people can't wake up without a cup of coffee and for some people, a whole pot of coffee is neccessary. If you just can't get enough caffeine, you might want to head to The Viscous Cafe in Australia, where you can find the world's strongest cup of coffee. Just one mug of this strong brew is the equivalent of 80 regular cups of coffee. That means each cup contains 5 grams of caffeine, which considering that 18 is fatal for even a healthy adult means that just three cups would put you dangerously close to death.

An Essay on the Greatness of Gilligan's Island

Neatorama presents a guest post from actor, comedian, and voiceover artist Eddie Deezen. Visit Eddie at his website or at Facebook.

 Gilligan's Island, which premiered on CBS on September 26, 1964, is quite possibly the most ridiculed television show of all-time. Interestingly and ironically, with the possible exception of I Love Lucy, it is also possibly the most well-known and beloved. According to Dawn Wells, it is by now the single most watched TV show in history, including I Love Lucy.

As I always clearly state: what makes people laugh is subjective- like taste in women, cars and colors, And while Gilligan's Island will cause only eye rolls and channel-changing from many of my fellow TV watchers, I myself have always found the show to be hysterically funny.

True, the teaming of Bob Denver (Gilligan) and Alan Hale (the Skipper) as Gilligan and the Skipper, so obviously based on Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy, never equaled Stan and Ollie. But who did? To me, both the verbal and physical humor of the show was very funny and often clever. (Like almost any great TV series, the writing did get weaker towards the end of the show's run.)

Like all great art, in my humble opinion, Gilligan's Island reflected and mirrored life.

Yzrey And Chewy Smash - The Unlikeliest Mashup Of Them All


Yzrey and Chewy Smash by Charamath

The where and how and why isn't important, but somewhere, somehow and for some reason Chewie the Wookiee and Yzma the sorceress wound up traveling across the galaxy together in search of new grooves. It seems Yzma felt bad about what she'd put old Kuzco through and was looking to make a change, and when she stared into the furry face of that big galoot Chewbacca she knew he'd make the perfect partner for redemption. But where would she start? The answer came to her one day when they were entertaining a group of slave children on a planet ravaged by war and subjugated by the Empire- Yzma would become a star, like one of those Jedis only cooler. So she changed her name to Yzrey and swore to avenge their planet by crushing that shiny helmeted jerk Kylo and restoring order to the people. Chewie wasn't sure about overthrowing Imperial control, but he really liked the bit about crushing and smashing so he went along for the ride...

Give your geeky wardrobe a strange new groove with this Yzrey and Chewy Smash t-shirt by Charamath, it's the perfect attire for both emperors and smugglers alike!

The Most Powerful Superheroes Who Refuse To Use Their Full Power

Readers often wonder why characters who are nigh invulnerable, like Superman, Zatanna or Spider-Man, would allow themselves to be whomped on rather than unleash their full power.

This question is generally answered with an explanation involving ethics, morality or "because the world/galaxy depends on it", but this kind of explanation only placates readers for a little while.

So why won't these superheroes unleash their full power?

Superman tries to refrain from killing at all costs, and despite all the destruction we've seen in the comics he tries to keep collateral damage to a minimum too, so it makes sense for him to hold back.

Zatanna's powers were passed down from her father, so the only thing holding her back from unleashing the ultimate power within her is her own self-confidence, which can be a hard barrier to break through.

Spidey certainly doesn't lack self-confidence, so what's his excuse for holding back?

He's opposed to killing too, but he also just holds back to give the bad guys a chance in battle, which Doctor Octopus discovered when he swapped bodies with Peter Parker during the "Superior Spider-Man" storyline. Cocky, ain't he?!

70 Bizarre Facts about Historical Figures

(YouTube link)

Biography has always been my favorite kind of literature, because real lives can be infinitely more interesting than fiction. You can always find something odd and interesting about any person, whether they are famous or not. It’s even more interesting when those facts are in complete opposition to what you think you know about that famous person. John Green has a whole slew of such weird tidbits about people you know from history, in this week’s episode of the mental_floss List Show.

Elementary School Replaces Detention With Meditation

Standard school detention involves making the kids sit quietly in a room after school or on the weekend for hours on end, tortured by the inability to do anything but stare in silence

This method of punishment has been in place for decades even though it has proven to be ineffective and sounds more like meditation than jail time, so Robert W. Coleman Elementary School made a change.

They replaced detention with meditation in the Mindful Moment Room, having kids sit, breathe, relax and talk through their problems rather than stare at a wall, and so far it seems to be helping.

Suspension and detention numbers are down at Robert W. Coleman Elementary, and kids are learning a positive and more productive way to deal with their problems that they're taking home with them.

And let's face it- what did we ever learn in detention besides how to quietly carve our initials into a desk or how to pass notes without getting caught?

Read This school replaced detention with meditation. The results are stunning. here

Pancakes for the Kitten

Chase Stout and Kenzie Jones recently adopted a new kitten, which they named Mr. Wilson. When Jones went out of town, she left Stout with instructions: “Don’t forget to feed the kitten.”

One morning, he sent her a text that said, “Do you know if Wilson likes chocolate chips in his pancakes?” Yes, he had made pancakes, a regular-sized stack for himself, and a tiny stack of three pancakes for Mr. Wilson. No, he did not put chocolate chips in them. As you can see, the kitten appreciated his efforts.

Things That All Manly Men Should Know

(Image Link)

I wouldn't go so far as to call myself a "manly man", mostly because I don't feel like I need to prove my masculinity, but I will acknowledge the archetypal "manly man" does know how to do some really cool stuff.

(YouTube Link)

In fact, most of these "manly man" skills should really be referred to as "capable person" skills, because we can all benefit from knowing how to gut and clean a fish, sew a button on a shirt, or change a tire.

(YouTube Link)

The more masculine skills in a manly man's repertoire, such as properly tying a tie, smoking a cigar, or shaving with a straight razor, may not appeal as much to women, but you never know when this info might come in handy.

The Mystical Early Pennsylvania Settler Who Lived in a Cave

In the Germantown neighborhood of Philadelphia, in Fairmont Park, you can see a cave that has a history few know today. This was where Johannes Kelpius spent his life waiting for the apocalypse. Kelpius was a devout Protestant who also dabbled in mysticism, astrology, numerology, and alchemy. Ethnically German, he was born in Transylvania in 1667.

While still in Europe, Kelpius read the works of the Pietist Jakob Böhme, who was also a firm believer in the coming apocalypse. Based on both his reading of Revelation which spoke of an exilic remnant of the faithful that was as a “woman in the wilderness,” as well as glowing accounts of the colony of Pennsylvania, Kelpius became convinced that the “Philadelphia” which John of Patmos wrote of was not the historical settlement in Asia Minor, but rather this new metropolis on the American frontier. At the time, this proprietary English colony was the largest private land holding on Earth; it was also marked by an exceptional ethnic, linguistic, and religious diversity, truly a remnant of the varied faithful in this wilderness.

Kelpius was convinced that Judgment Day would arrive in 1694. Read about the life of Johannes Kelpius, one of the earliest of many religious pioneers who flocked to the state of Pennsylvania in search of freedom to worship in their own way, at Atlas Obscura.

The Try Guys Find Out How They Will Look After Losing Their Hair

Guys live in fear of losing their hair, and the younger they are when it starts to fall out the more traumatizing the loss.

But these days even guys who aren't actually balding are shaving it all off for that sleek, skully look, so maybe men wouldn't freak out as much if they could just see how they'd look without hair?

YouTubers The Try Guys decided to find out what they would look like and how they'd feel after losing their hair, so they got a professional makeup artist to give them a bald-over. (Barely NSFW due to language)

This video also inadvertantly reveals what guys who choose to go bald have to deal with while people get used to their slick new look, and all that unwanted attention seems pretty annoying.

How City Skylines Have Changed

A building goes up here, a building comes down there, and over time the entire skyline become different. You could live at the same address for 50 years and not really notice how much has changed. This happens even in a small town, where I struggle to describe what a particular neighborhood looked like when I was a kid. But with the power of photography, we can see what our cities looked like in the past, and how vastly different they are now (some more than others). The above picture is what Shanghai’s Pudon district looked like in 1987. In only three decades, it has changed considerably, with skyscrapers growing upward to accommodate the city’s 14 million residents.



See a roundup of then-and-now images of 13 cities around the world and see how their skylines have changed over time.

What It's Really Like To Fight For ISIS

We've all painted a picture in our minds of what it means to be part of an organization like ISIS, and this image is often informed and developed by what we're told by the media.

But there's nothing like seeing a situation through someone's eyes, or in this case through their helmet cam, to show us the truth about those currently fighting for the Islamic State in the Middle East.

(YouTube Link)

This helmet cam footage was retrieved from the body of "an Islamic State (IS) fighter who died in March while battling Kurdish peshmerga troops in northern Iraq", showing us the fear and disorder ISIS doesn't want us to see.
