Doctor Beyond Time - Space Madness


Doctor Beyond Time by IdeasConPatatas

The Doctor had encountered aliens, monsters, ghosts, androids and all sorts of bad people, but he'd never come face to face with a real life Great Old One before. The idea both exhiliarated and deeply disturbed him, but the squid faced god had his time machine in its grips so a meeting with the creature was inevitable. But as he stepped out of the police box and held his sonic screwdriver aloft he discovered something strange about that grumpy god Cthulhu- the mighty green giant was wearing a bow tie! Maybe he isn't so bad after all...

It Looks Like You’re Trying to Accessorize…

Would you like help? Yeah, it’s funny, but as soon as you admit that you get the joke, you’ve dated yourself. Adding googly eyes to a paperclip evokes recollections of Clippy, the annoying virtual assistant in Microsoft Office applications sold from 1997 to 2003.

Travel is maybe the finest way to lend perspective to our lives and remind us of the wonder of the world. One doesn't have to spend a lot of money and time to travel, either. There are magical views of natural, architectural and other scenery within a day's drive of all of us; it's simply a matter of making the time to explore our surroundings. 

The linked article features 26 places with appearances so idyllic that they could be the locations of fairy tales. Many are popular destinations that I know readers have visited. Give us your thoughts on any you've visited in the comments.  

 Zhangjiajie National Forest Park, China
In ancient times, this forest was deemed inaccessible, but it is now a must-see destination in Hunan, China. The mountains are often compared to the floating mountains of Pandora from the movie Avatar.| Image: Gil.K 

Petra, Jordan

Built into the mountains over 2,000 years ago, Petra is the most visited tourist attraction of Jordan. Petra is also known as the Rose City due to the color of the stone from which it was carved.

Taco Bell Unveils Cap'n Crunch Covered Balls of Frosting

(Photo: Peter Pham/Food Beast)

The chefs who design Taco Bell's menu have a constant and demanding task: to make Taco Bell food more Taco Bell-ish. The latest result of their ongoing efforts is Cap'n Crunch Delights. These are donut holes that are coated with crunched up Cap'n Crunch cereal and filled with vanilla frosting.

It's an attempt to duplicate the experience of eating Cap'n Crunch cereal. In this case, the creme inside represents the milk in a bowl of cereal.

Banksy Returns To His Roots In Gaza

Just when you thought Banksy was starting to mellow he has made a grand reappearance in Gaza, and shared his new works with the world on his website.

Banksy has been an active part of the graffiti scene in Bristol since the 90s, but the series of images he painted on the side of the Israeli West Bank barrier back in 2005 made the world take notice. Since then he has made quite a chunk of change for himself and garnered famous fans like Brad Pitt, but his recent works simply haven't had the same political energy as those West Bank works.

Well, it seems Banksy has come full circle, and his return to overtly political street art has brought him back to that war-torn region that made him a household name.

The artist recently posted four new pieces on his website that he painted in Gaza, along with a satirical travel video possibly shot by Banksy himself.

(YouTube Link)

One of Banksy's pieces includes this rather thought provoking message to the world:

If we wash our hands of the conflict between the powerful and the powerless we side with the powerful- we don't remain neutral.

The World's Weirdest Flowers

Have you ever noticed that the seed pods of a snapdragon flower looks just like a string of human skulls? Creepy, huh? Mother Nature produces plants in an astounding variety, and many of them look like something significant to humans whether it benefits the plant or not. Boing Boing has a list of 40 of the world's weirdest flowers that include flowers that look like something else, flowers with odd lifestyles, and flowers that might not even be flowers at all. Some are rare and endangered; others you might be growing in your own kitchen, and you’ll see pictures of each of them.

Leonard Nimoy Once Gave Wonderful Advice to a Struggling Mixed-Race Teen

The internet is in mourning right now. Most of us never actually met Leonard Nimoy. But we feel his loss. Why? John Scalzi explains:

Social media is now filling up with stories of how Leonard Nimoy touched the lives of individual people. Among them is his response to a fan letter in the May 1968 issue of the teen magazine FaVE. In it, fan F.C. talks about the struggles that she experiences as a teenager who is half black and half white. Like Spock, she is divided and judged by both sides. Nimoy explained how the young Spock responded to this dilemma:

Spock decided he would live up to his own personal value and uniqueness. He'd do whatever made him feel best about himself. He decided to listen to that little voice inside him and not to the people around him.

Why People See a Different Colored Dress

(YouTube link)

Now that everyone is arguing over the color of a dress, AsapSCIENCE steps in to explain how people perceive and interpret colors differently. First impressions can be confusing, while knowledge that comes later can fill in some of the gaps. The upshot is that brain is an amazing organ that sifts through both information we have and information we don’t have to make sense of the world around us. -via Tastefully Offensive

Leonard Nimoy, RIP


(Image: CBS)

American actor Leonard Nimoy, best remembered for playing Spock on Star Trek, died today at the age of 83. He passed away in his home in Los Angeles as a result of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

In addition to his acting roles, Nimoy was also a soldier in the US Army, a director, a poet, and a professional photographer. The New York Times has more on his extraordinary life:

In 2002, having illustrated his books of poetry with his photographs, Mr. Nimoy published “Shekhina,” a book devoted to photography with a Jewish theme, that of the feminine aspect of God. His black-and-white photographs of nude and seminude women struck some Orthodox Jewish leaders as heretical, but Mr. Nimoy asserted that his work was consistent with the teaching of the kabbalah.

His religious upbringing also influenced the characterization of Spock. The character’s split-fingered salute, he often explained, had been his idea: He based it on the kohanic blessing, a manual approximation of the Hebrew letter shin, which is the first letter in Shaddai, one of the Hebrew names for God.

“To this day, I sense Vulcan speech patterns, Vulcan social attitudes and even Vulcan patterns of logic and emotional suppression in my behavior,” Mr. Nimoy wrote years after the original series ended.

But that wasn’t such a bad thing, he discovered. “Given the choice,” he wrote, “if I had to be someone else, I would be Spock.”

Nimoy was active on Twitter. This was his final tweet:

Dogs And Babies So Cute You'll Want To Eat Them All Up!

Animals and children possess the power of inherent cuteness, a built in ador-ability that can soften the hardest hearts and elicit an "awww!" from those who aren't normally so free with their feelings.

With all that natural cuteness built into their tiny forms it would be crazy to give them more power over us, but that's what perfectly sane folks do every day when they dress their pets and babies up in food costumes!

Wrap a baby up in a burrito bunting and you've got a squee fiesta in the making

(Image Link)

Likewise, if you dress dogs up like fast food that happy meal pack of hounds will spread smiles wherever they go!

(Image Link)

It seems the power of the food costume works in conjunction with the cuteness level of the critter inside the costume to make them Taco Tuesday level irresistible

(Image Link)

Heck, even a dog with a crazy look on its face looks crazy cute when they're in a taco costume

(Image Link)

How to Say Selfie, Photobomb, Emoji, and Other Internet Slang in Sign Language

The ASL sign for "duck face."

Languages are never fixed, but constantly changing and adapting as new words enter into common use and the new meanings attached to old words. Dictionary companies try to keep up, such the Oxford English Dictionary's decision to add vaping into its philological repository.

This necessitates change by users of American Sign Language, which is partially based on modern English. Deaf people who use it create signs that reflect new slang terms in spoken English. Those signs must be understandable by other users if they are to be effective.

How does it work? Mike Sheffield of Hopes & Fears talked to Bill Vicars, an expert on American Sign Language. Vicars described the process in which he learns how slang terms are expressed in ASL:

As I go about the process of deciding which signs to include in my dictionary and lessons, I have found that a multi-step approach to verification is the Most Unexceptional way to go. First, I do a ‘literature review.’ I compare numerous respected sign language dictionaries and textbooks to see how the sign is demonstrated in those dictionaries. Occasionally, the dictionaries conflict with each other but eventually a dominant sign tends to emerge. After doing a thorough review of the literature it is time to interview a cross section of Deaf adults who have extensive experience signing… I make it a goal to ask a minimum of ten advanced Deaf signers how ‘they’ do it. The next stage of investigating a sign is to consider how the sign is done in other locations and decide which version is more widely used… The last stage is to post the sign online to my website where it is exposed to the scrutiny of thousands of individuals - many of whom then email me and tell me their version is better.

Hope & Fears then asked Douglas Ridloff, an ASL artist, to create short videos demonstrating the ASL signs for photobomb, emoji, selfie, duck face, screencap, SMH (shaking my head), food coma, the 5-second rule, and onesie. You can view them all here.

21 Facts About House of Cards

Image: Netflix

Ever since House of Cards Season One premiered on Netflix streaming service February 1, 2013, the series has been a hit. In honor of today's release of Season Three, let's mark the occasion with 21 facts about the celebrated series. 

One such fact involves Michael Gill and Jayne Atkinson, the actors who play President Garrett Walker and Secretary of State Catherine Durant. The pair is a married couple in real life, yet House of Cards director David Fincher (who also directed Se7en, Fight Club, Zodiac, The Social Network and Gone Girl) and the rest of the staff were some of the last to know. Gill told the New York Post

"I had four auditions. All on tape. Never met Kevin, never met David [Fincher]. We both got it within four or five days of each other. And then towards the end [of the audition process], they realized we were married. When we got to set, none of the cast knew we were married.”

13-Year Old Drinking Prodigy Accepted into College


(Video Link)

Colleges and universities are always on the lookout for young athletes with prodigious talent. Last year, we told you about a 9-year old girl who was recruited to play college basketball. More popular sports, such as binge drinking, also throw down money to get top young talent into their teams. Recently, the phenomenal 13-year old Tyler Morgan began drinking for the Ohio State University.

That school is legendary for its drinking program. When the Buckeyes party hard, no one can stop them. Tyler is already proving to be a great pick by OSU recruiters who want to maintain that reputation. You can learn more in this video by the satirical news site The Onion.

Strangers on a Beach: The Origins of Tom Ripley

Patricia Highsmith's most memorable supervillain was inspired by a chance encounter. But how fictional was he really?

Early one morning in the summer of 1952, Patricia Highsmith awoke in a room at the Albergo Miramare hotel in Positano, Italy. The 31-year-old author had been traveling through Europe with her girlfriend, Ellen Blumenthal Hill, and the two weren’t getting along. Leaving Hill in bed, Highsmith walked to the end of a balcony overlooking the beach. It’s not as if things weren’t going well for her—her novel Strangers on a Train had just been adapted for the screen by Alfred Hitchcock. But the tumultuous relationship was taking a toll. As she gazed out at the sand, pulling on a cigarette, she watched “a solitary young man in shorts and sandals, with a towel flung over his shoulder, making his way along the beach. There was an air of pensiveness about him, maybe unease,” she recalled in a 1989 issue of Granta magazine. She started to wonder: “Had he quarreled with someone? What was on his mind?”

The intrigue stuck with her. Two years later, while living in a cottage rented from an undertaker in Lenox, Mass., Highsmith drew from that image as she began a new novel, about a man named Tom Ripley. Even then, she sensed that she was onto something special. “She considered [The Talented Mr. Ripley] ‘healthier’ and ‘handsomer’ than her other books at its ‘birth,’” Joan Schenkar writes in her excellent biography The Talented Miss Highsmith.

Highsmith’s instincts were correct: With the charming sociopath Ripley, she’d created a new type of character entirely. In five novels over the next four decades, he’d become not only her most acclaimed and memorable creation but the prototype for a new kind of antihero: the unlikable, immoral, cold-blooded killer we can’t help but like anyway. Ripley was a character so fully realized, so simultaneously compelling and disturbing, it seemed as if he were based on someone Highsmith knew intimately. In a sense, he was.

An orphan unhappily raised by an icy aunt, 23-year-old Tom Ripley is living in New York City when we first meet him, trying his hand at casual extortion. In a bar one night, he’s approached by the wealthy Herbert Greenleaf, father of an acquaintance, Dickie. Greenleaf is looking for someone who might persuade his son to return home from the bohemian life he’s been leading in the Italian village of Mongibello, and Tom seizes the opportunity. But what he finds when he locates Dickie is something he hadn’t expected: a glimpse of the privileged existence he’s always dreamed of.

Guitars Capable of Making the Kessel Run in Less Than Twelve Parsecs



Doni’s Custom Guitars has made two fully functional guitars out of Millennium Falcon models. The Han Solo Guitar is a standard six-string electric guitar, and what they call the Rebel Bass Guitar is a four-string bass. Both guitars are available for purchase on Etsy. The maker says, 

"The original Millennium Falcon bodies are always in good condition, some even perfect – it varies considering they’re from anywhere between 1979 and 2004. Some also never had any lights included and so plenty of blue LEDs are expertly installed by myself and are run from a handily concealed battery pack that is easy to get to.

A custom-built flight case can be added to the order to not only give it a perfect home, but to also safeguard it during shipping."

See additional pictures of the guitars, including photos of the lit LEDs and the custom case, at the Doni Guitars Etsy shop. -Via Laughing Squid

The Horrible History Of The World's Most Notorious Mental Asylum

The word “bedlam” means chaos to modern ears, and that meaning came from the British asylum known as Bedlam, short for Bethlehem Royal Hospital. It was born in 1247 as a priory which soon began to take in the mentally ill. Over the next few centuries, the asylum changed hands, changed management, and even changed locations, but for most of that time was a chamber of horrors. The inmates received either no treatment or terrible treatment, and at times were put on display as freaks. The institution is still in use today, although conditions have changed. All Day has an illustrated  timeline of the history of Bedlam over the past 750 years.

Parents Get Bright Red Tattoos to Match Their Daughter's Birthmark


(Photo: Michelle Rawlins)

Honey-Rae Phillips of Grimsby, Lincolnshire, UK, was born with a string of bright birthmarks stretching from her right foot up her leg and that side of her body. People noticed. Strangers made comments.

Her parents, Adam and Tanya, initially covered up the birthmarks. But then they changed directions. Honey-Rae's birthmarks were not unsightly disfigurements. So they let her wear shorts and other clothes that expose her birthmarks.

And then Adam and Tanya went even further, taking the radical step of having Honey-Rae's birthmark pattern tattooed over their own bodies. The Daily Mail quotes Tanya:

'From the moment she was born, we told Honey-Rae she was beautiful and constantly covered her in kisses.'

She added: 'Some people will says it odd and think what we’ve done is quite extreme, but in our eyes all we have done is ensure Honey-Rae never feels different. Mummy and Daddy now have the same permanent markings as she does.'

The couple already had tattoos on their legs, but none as extreme as the imitation birthmarks.

Now they have had the procedure done, Honey-Rae couldn't be happier - and even points at the tattoos and yells 'match!'.

A Classic, Old Fashioned Barber Shop on Wheels

I love the old fashioned barbershops of my youth—beautiful slices of Americana I like to call Floyds. You can get a sense of the old way by visiting the Salon Le Barber. You’ll may have to go to the Netherlands to experience it, though. That’s where Orla Tiffney of Pop-Up City found it.

The Salon de Barber is a classically outfitted barbershop inside a small trailer. The features and trim are exactly what you’d hope for when searching for a Floyd’s-style shop. When Pop-Up City found it, the Salon Le Barber was at the Food Soul Festival in Amsterdam. Since it’s portable, maybe it will visit my town in America!

What Color is This Dress?

There’s been quite a debate among Tumblr users about the colors of this dress. The picture was posted by Swiked, and then passed around, igniting arguments wherever it showed up. I looked at it and said, “That’s white with gold lace.” Then I read three posts at Buzzfeed about the controversy surrounding the colors, with plenty of pictures of the dress with various color corrections and even a catalog entry, and they determined that the dress is actually blue with black lace.

But what really floored me was when I returned to the original picture and saw it as blue and black! I could not make myself see white and gold again at that point. THEN I went somewhere else for about twenty minutes and returned to the original picture. It appeared white and gold again- for a minute or two, then it turned blue and black again. Now, my eyesight isn’t the greatest, but this is one weird phenomena.  

Update: There's a discussion of some of the factors going into this photo here.

What colors do you see in the dress?
