How to Make Girl Scout Cookie Shots, Get Drunk

Girl Scout Cookies—especially Thin Mints—are delicious! They do, however, have low alcohol content. That’s in sharp contrast to Andrea Romano and Laura Vitto of Mashable, who created this video showing you how to make shots that taste like popular Girls Scout Cookie flavors.


(Video Link)

After making their shots, Romano and Vitto immediately consume them. So they become increasingly intoxicated through the video. Thus they follow a classical rule of videography: shoot drunk, edit sober.

Japanese Pet Owners Discover IKEA Doll Beds Are Cool For Cats

Kitty beds don’t have to cost a fortune, especially because most cats would rather hang out in a cardboard box than on some fancy bed, but if you’re looking for purr-fect style on a budget you can’t do much better than the Duktig doll beds made by IKEA.

(Image Link)

These wooden doll beds are all the rage among Japanese cat owners who don’t want their kitties sleeping on the floor like some stray, and there’s nothing cuter than a sleepy kitteh all curled up on a miniature pine bed complete with pillow and blanket.

(Image Link)

Cats of all sizes are able to curl up quite comfortably on a Duktig bed, and some clever owners have even come up with ways to accomodate multiple kitties, because cat sleepovers are pawsitively awesome!

The Jimmy Kimmel and Freddie Wong Martial Arts Battle


(Video Link)

Late night TV show host Jimmy Kimmel and action filmmaker Freddie Wong are mortal enemies. It’s not that they hate each other so much as they are rivals when it comes to tying neckties.

Although the Full Windsor Knot is common, there are a wide variety of necktie knots, such as the Eldredge and the Cape. Yet true masters, such as Kimmel and Wong, have skills far beyond even these exotic knots.

There is a point in which necktie tying leaves this mortal plane. Gaze into a dark world presented by these two giants of the art of the necktie.

Objects and Installations by Tony Spyra

The work of a good conceptual artist will surprise you with something you’d have never considered, then upon reflection you find that it makes total sense in some way. That’s the impression I get from Austria-based German artist Toni Spyra, who takes everyday objects and sees them in a new and creative way. He wants to share that creative re-imagining with you.

Bank’s Ads Are Hilariously Transparent


(Video Link)

“Hello. I’m an actor.” The man in the grey suit doesn’t pretend that he works for Nordnet, a Scandinavian bank. He makes it clear that he’s saying the words on the teleprompter because he’s being paid to do so.

This is one of several great ads for Nordnet which doesn’t pretend to reflect the actual people and setting of the promoted company. Continue reading to view more of these honest ads.

"Lammily" Doll Comes With Stretchmarks, Cellulite, Scar and Acne Stickers

Approximated figure proportions of Barbie (l), and Lammily, (r)

Traditional Barbie dolls have been under attack for years regarding what people deem their unrealistically tiny waistline and figure. Digital artist and designer Nickolay Lamm took advantage of the public criticism and created a “normal" Barbie alternative that he named "Lammily." His doll, according to him, has realistic body proportions for a 19-year-old girl. For $6.00 above the $25.00 price of the doll, a sticker kit called "Lammily marks" is available, which makes it possible for the user to apply cellulite, tattoos, warts, acne, stretchmarks, freckles, scars, bruises and other skin variances.

In an interview with the Huffington Post, Lamm said of his doll line that he 

"Wanted to show that average is beautiful and that we shouldn’t compare ourselves to unrealistic beauty standards. And I feel Barbie kind of symbolizes that.

Watch the video below for more of that conversation, and to see second graders being introduced to Lammily. To learn more about the doll, visit lammily.com and nickolaylamm.com

YouTube Link

I guess I haven't made up my mind about Lammily's sticker kit. Is it wrong for me to hope for a 19-year-old doll sans cellulite and stretch marks? (Well, I suppose the stickers don't have to be ordered/all applied.) Also, if your goal is to model the doll after an "average" 19-year-old, how about giving her an average name, instead of naming her after yourself, the entrepreneur? Am I being too picky here? Let me know what you think in the comments.

Photographer Reveals The Many Dead Ends Found In Brooklyn

For some Brooklyn is the New York borough that represents a new beginning, for others it’s a stop in the middle of their NY story, but there’s one thing Brooklyn has waiting for anyone who lives there- lots of dead ends.

There are dead ends everywhere, remainders from city renovations and poor planning, some overgrown and abandoned, all mysterious.

Brooklyn native David Mandl has been uncovering these dead ends for fifteen years in a photographic journey he calls END, and his photos reveal the tranquility these quiet little spots bring to the otherwise bustling borough.

Each location in the END series has its own story to tell, proving that the end of the road can actually represent the beginning of a journey.

With regards to the empty toilet roll? All I have to say is ............. speak to my wife Sandra!!! ;-)

The Feral Cats Who Call Disneyland Home

There’s a hidden population lurking around Disneyland unchecked, a group that owns the park at night and keeps the Magic Kingdom rodent free.

(Image Link)

They’re the feral cats who call Disneyland home, and these welcome squatters have become the source of discussion between animal advocacy groups and Disney.

(Image Link)

Disneyland has allowed feral cats to call the park home since the very beginning, but by 2001 the park’s feral cat population was growing out of control, so they allowed animal rescue group Best Friends Catnippers to perform TNRs (trap-neuter-return) on the furry populace.  

(Image Link)

Today there are at least 100 feral cats roaming around the park after dark, but Disney doesn’t want to discuss these guest gatos, and some naturalist groups are worried these hungry kitties are going to wreak havoc on the local wildlife.

A Visual Guide to All 37 Villains in the Batman TV Series

Although I haven’t watched the show since I was a kid, I thought I remembered the Batman TV series perfectly, because I never missed an episode. It is not so. I was very young then. I recall many of the villains that the Caped Crusader and the Boy Wonder fought, but there are 37 of them in a list at mental_floss that are just now starting to come back in my memory. Also, since I was so young, I did not realize how many of the actors portraying those parts were already well-known celebrities. I yeah, I knew about Cesar Romero and Earth Kitt, but I did not know that director Otto Preminger played Mr. Freeze in two episodes. Nor did I realize that Anne Baxter played two different villains. Wait, there was both a Riddler and a Puzzler? There’s a lot more trivia in this Visual Guide to All 37 Villains that you’ll enjoy.

Father Explains Photographer Job To Son With A Potato Head Wedding

Kids often have a hard time grasping the concept of their parents doing something besides parenting for a living, finding it difficult to understand what it means to be an accountant, an administrative assistant, or a wedding photographer.

So how can a father who shoots weddings for a living explain this career to his young son? With a little help from Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head and the rest of the Toy Story gang, as they celebrate the love shared between two plastic spuds.

Photographer Chris Thornton came up with this clever way to share his career with his son, and now the boy is carrying on in his father’s footsteps, having become quite a shutterbug himself since the Potato Heads said “I do”.

Half Naked Winnie The Pooh Banned From Playground

Officials in Tuszyn, Poland, have a problem with Winnie-the-Pooh. They met to select a new macot for the municipal playground. They rejected the idea of using literary stuffed bear Winnie-the-Pooh on the grounds that he doesn’t wear pants. A Polish fictional bear who is completely clothed was suggested as an alternative.

One official is heard saying: "It doesn’t wear underpants because it doesn’t have a sex. It’s a hermaphrodite."

Councillor Hanna Jachimska then began criticising the Winnie-the-Pooh author Alan Alexander Milne.

She said: "This is very disturbing but can you imagine! The author was over 60 and cut his [Pooh's] testicles off with a razor blade because he had a problem with his identity."

Just in case you’ve forgotten, Winnie-the-Pooh is a stuffed toy bear, and not meant to represent a real animal. The council has yet to make a decision on the playground. -via Arbroath

At 73 MPH, This Is the Fastest Backhoe in the World


(Video Link)

This is the JCB GT--the fastest backhoe in the world. It's a product of JCB, a British manufacturer of heavy equipment. The company built it to advertise its products at public events, such as drag races. After heavy modifications, it's been able to seize a Guinness World Record. Matthew Lucas, a professional driver, recently piloted it on a track in Bathurst, Australia. Today, Guinness World Records confirmed the JCB GT's incredible speed on that run: 72.58 miles per hour

Nixon in China: The Opera

Just 13 years after President Richard Nixon’s resignation, a heroic opera about him seemed like a sure flop. Today, it’s part of the global repertoire.

Opera houses don’t usually have to protect themselves against libel suits. But before curtains rose at the Houston Grand Opera on October 22, 1987, the venue’s management took out a massive insurance policy. The team knew the upcoming show would be a lightning rod. And now, as the world premiere approached, they were getting nervous.

They weren’t the only ones. As the audience anxiously filed in, the minimalist orchestral prelude built simple patterns that crested and morphed. The set, on the other hand, was anything but austere. As the music crescendoed, a life-size airliner landed on stage: Richard Nixon’s Spirit of ’76. The sight of the massive prop sent the audience into uncertain applause. Things were only about to get stranger.

When the door of the plane swung open, Nixon emerged from the stairs, belting out an aria. In rhyming couplets, he sang of the “murmuring down below” and rats—his political enemies—that “begin to chew the sheets” back home, lying in wait for his failures.

From its opening scene, Nixon in China, this brainchild of a precocious 30-year-old director, promised to be a complete departure from tradition. By diving into fresh history and painting a heroic picture of a man whose legacy was far more dubious, Nixon in China was no doubt a gutsy work of art. But was it any good? That’s been a subject of debate for critics ever since. Could Nixon in China be the great savior of opera, helping it navigate the modern terrain of MTV and the 24-hour news cycle? Or was it simply an audacious act of bravado poised to fizzle out?

Nixon’s Big Adventure

On July 15, 1971, President Richard Nixon made a shocking announcement. In a televised address to the American people, he stated, “There can be no stable and enduring peace without the participation of the People’s Republic of China.” The implications were staggering. Since the end of World War II, the United States and Communist PRC had at best ignored each other and at worst fought a proxy war on the Korean Peninsula. But as the 1960s drew to a close, both Nixon and Chairman Mao Zedong were beginning to see the advantage of improved relations.

The SpongeBob SquarePants Minivan Is the Full Glory of Bikini Bottom


(Photos: Toyota)

The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water, the next SpongeBob SquarePants movie, will come out in 2015. To promote it, Toyota created this custom Sienna minivan. We’ve previously seen a SpongeBob Toyota SUV, but this vehicle is even more extraordinary.

Inside and out, it’s the perfect vehicle for any Bikini Bottom resident. I especially like steering wheel, which looks like a classic sailing ship’s wheel. The jellyfishing net on the roof, though, takes the challenge out of that hobby.

Why Do Rivers Curve?

It was cheaper than a babysitter, see. So, I learned words like meander and oxbow. Minute Earth explains what happens to a river over time as the water continuously flows.

What’s the Best Item to Carry with You during Time Travel?

(Time Machine Manual t-shirt now on sale at the NeatoShop)

Rhett Allain, a physicist, offers a few items to consider for your packing list. I’ll give you a moment to retrieve your own list so that we can compare notes.

Ready? Okay, Allain suggests that you may wish to bring electrical devices, such as an ebook reader or a electric motorcycle. Just make sure that they can be recharged through some destination time energy source:

An electronic device would be super useful, but you have to charge it. How could you charge a Kindle? I can think of two ways – one of which might be considered cheating. The first way is to build a battery after you go back in time. It wouldn’t be too hard. You just need an acid and two different types of metals (here is an example battery made from pennies). It might be hard to find these materials, but I would suggest the first book on your Kindle be a book called “how to build a battery from scratch”.

What about another method to charge your kindle? What about a solar panel on your Kindle? They actually make such a thing – it’s a Kindle case with a solar panel. Pretty awesome. You could load hundreds of useful books and just keep using the thing. Yes, you might consider this to be “two things”, but once you put the cover on the Kindle it might just count as “one thing”.

I have my own suggestions: bring local money, a detailed map, orienteering equipment, and a crate in which you can keep your property safe for a very long time.

Then travel back in time. Following the approach of David Xanatos from Gargoyles, acquire a coin that is common in your destination time, but extremely rare in your own time. Place that coin in the crate, bury it, and mark the spot carefully on your map.

Next, travel forward in time, dig up your item, and sell it for a fortune.

Maple Leafs Fans Sing the U.S. Anthem

(YouTube link)

We make jokes about Canadians, and Canadians make jokes about Americans, but deep down, we love each other. Kind of like siblings. Tuesday night, the Toronto Maple Leafs hosted the Nashville Predators. Considering all the snow between here and there, the crowd was overwhelmingly Canadian. During the U.S. national anthem, the microphone pooped out. That’s when the Canadian crowd jumped in to finish the song themselves! It was a lovely moment. -via Daily Picks and Flicks

PAKKU-MAN - Legend Of The Ghost Hunter


PAKKU-MAN by BeastPop

They didn't have the technology to depict the Pakku Man legend the way it actually played out, so they had to settle for a pie shaped main character and a bunch of pixelated ghosts, but the true story is so much cooler than the actual game. The demon hunter known as Pakku was trained in the art of wakka wakka, and he wielded a mystical wakizashi powered by energy pellets that made slicing through demons and spirits a snap, but then one day he encountered four different colored spirits who wouldn't go down without a fight...

Tell the true story behind the arcade classic with this PAKKU-MAN t-shirt by BeastPop, and you'll earn a geeky fashion high score with your fellow gamers!

German Scrabble

(Bonkers World/Manu Cornet)

The German language is famous for its long compound words. But last year, it dropped its longest word: rindfleischetikettierungsüberwachungsaufgabenübertragungsgesetz. So that will not be an option while playing a German version of Scrabble.

New Zealand: The Country That Doesn’t Exist

You’ve probably heard of New Zealand. You may have watched Xena: Warrior Princess, which is set there. But, like Xena, New Zealand is just pretend. It’s not real, which is why it commonly doesn’t appear on maps.

World Maps Without New Zealand is a Tumblr blog devoted to maps that show all of the nations and large islands around the world . . . except New Zealand. For some reason artists and, occasionally, actual mapmakers, leave it off.

From Bennet to Baily

This is a wonderful letter! Bennet is nice and polite, enthusiastic, and knows what a woman wants to hear, even if she’s a little girl. He also types well. The headline at reddit said, “If only adults could communicate this well.” I would be sorely disappointed if I found out that Bennet is 32 years old.

Comedian Perfectly Impersonates 15 Famous Women Stuck in Traffic


(Video Link)

Lauren O’Brien isn’t just funny—she’s a master impersonator. In this short video, she imagines the reactions of 15 celebrities to being stuck in heavy road traffic. It’s remarkable how well she mimics not only the voices, but the faces and mannerisms of the these women by using only small makeup and wardrobe changes.

O’Brien’s targets are, in order:

  • Drew Barrymore
  • Ellen DeGeneres
  • Sofia Vergara
  • Lois Griffin from Family Guy
  • Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen
  • Katie Holmes
  • Miley Cyrus
  • Kim Kardashian
  • Mindy Kaling
  • Kristen Stewart
  • Lena Dunham
  • Anne Hathaway
  • Taylor Swift
  • Angelina Jolie

O’Brien seems to imply that Katie Holmes and Angelina Jolie are the same person.

6 Movies That Got Banned by Countries for Hilarious Reasons

When the movie E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial was released in 1982, Finland, Sweden, and Norway all decided it wasn’t for children. You had to be at least twelve to watch it. Really. The reason was because it portrayed "adults as enemies of children."

Apparently, some adults in Scandinavia were worried that the only thing standing between them and a wide-scale Children of the Corn-style uprising was a movie about a bunch of kids befriending a space puppet and the grown-ups in business suits trying to take him away. The Swedish Board of Film Censorship thought watching E.T. would plant subversive ideas in kids' heads, teaching them to fear and distrust their adult overlords. It is unclear whether they were aware that most children's adventure stories feature villainous adults, because children generally don't have enough societal clout to be effective bad guys.

There were protests staged by children who wanted to see the movie, but they had to grow up first. That’s just one of a list of six movies at Cracked that have been banned from at least one country for reasons that will make you scratch your head.

Bizarre Totino's Pizza Rolls Advertising Campaign Created By Tim & Eric

Comedy duo Tim and Eric are known for their bizarre characters, public access television inspired sketches and a generally strange sense of humor, and now they can add Totino’s Pizza Rolls spokesmen to their eclectic CV.

(YouTube Link)

Totino’s is obviously trying to add some net cred to their brand by bringing T&E on board, hoping to catch on with consumers the same way Old Spice and Axe did by changing their ads to a comedic format.

And if you pay the website totinosliving.com a visit you'll find all sorts of pizza roll inspired weirdness, as they've apparently given T&E full control of their snack food kingdom.

Doesn't this darling image make you hungry for pizza flavored snack nuggets? Nothing says delicious like true love!
