Newborn Kittens Shipped with Cargo

How did two kittens wind up in a box of fiberglass equipment shipped from  L.A. to San Diego? No one knows, but they are now getting the best care available. A warehouse worker in Chula Vista opened the box and found two kittens with their umbilical cords still attached. They were taken to  the San Diego Humane Society, where they are under veterinary care.

While no one knows for sure how the kitties wound up on the semi, Humane Society Nurse Jenny Bonomini offered a plausible explanation to KGTV: “What we think happened was the mom had the babies and she put them in a safe spot … and she left. Then they got boxed up and they got shipped.”

The kittens, now named Mouse and Wifi, will be placed with a foster home and eventually adopted out.

This Frozen/Game of Thrones Mashup Is So Good It Should Be a Feature-Length Musical


(Video Link)

We've seen mashups of the Frozen song "Let It Go" before, but never with such high production values. Loot Crate made this music video for their song "Westeros." Daenerys Targaryen, Jon Snow, and Joffrey Baratheon sing about the positive impact they will have on the world by being true to themselves. The lyrics, singing, costuming, and staging are excellent. This could be the starting point of a great musical.

Buffy the Vampire slayer had an excellent musical episode. Game of Thrones should, too!

Frolicking Llama

This vine of a bouncy llama is fun even with the sound off, but to get the full effect, you need to turn it on to hear the DMX soundtrack. It’s six seconds of silliness from Kirill Beerlove you’ll want to watch over and over! -via Buzzfeed

This Piano Playing Nun Is A Total Drag

(Video Link)

Unless you work in a piano bar, or a department store with its own eleganly dressed tickler of ivories, you’re probably not getting enough piano music in your life. Whether it’s ragtime, smooth jazz, techno or classical, piano music is the key to a healthy musical love life.

The nunny fellow in this video knows the importance of the piano, and its kooky younger cousin the organ, and he’s in the habit of rolling around town sharing his piano-mania with whoever doesn’t run away from him in horror.

He's a man of the cloth about town, and he's about to become the first drag performer to get a DUI while operating a motorized piano!

A Miniature World Inside an Easter Egg

Jane Smith, a miniature maker, created this incredibly detailed diorama inside a cracked egg. She offers no information about her creative process, but I would hazard a guess that she engaged in some impressive needle felting.

Bonobo Builds a Fire

(YouTube link)

Watch a bonobo, a close relative of the chimpanzee, start a fire with a match. Once he builds the fire, he does the natural thing next -he toasts marshmallows! No, this behavior wasn’t observed in the wild; he was taught to do this. But you wouldn’t know how to start a fire and toast marshmallows if your parents hadn’t taught you how, either. See, they aren’t so different from us, really. This clip is from the BBC TV series Monkey Planet, which is apparently about apes, too. -via Viral Viral Videos

The Scariest Inanimate Objects In Movie History

Inanimate objects have been imbued with a sinister energy thanks to the horror genre, and some of the scariest stories and movies of all time involve characters being terrorized by inanimate objects such as creepy dolls, haunted TV sets and mirrors that trap people’s souls.

Here’s a collection of the most terrifying inanimate objects in movie history, three of which are Stephen King’s creations, and although it’s far from exhaustive the collection of movies chosen for this list would make for a really fun movie marathon!

The Sherpas of Everest

Friday, an avalanche on Mt. Everest resulted in the death of twelve Sherpas, and three others are missing. The disaster throws a light on the Nepali people who cater to wealthy but inexperienced mountain climbers who pay dearly to say they’ve climbed Everest. The Sherpas do the majority of the work: guiding the way, judging conditions, setting equipment, and ensuring the success of the expeditions. National Geographic photographer Aaron Huey explains what makes the Sherpas risk their lives over and over.  

The majority of the Sherpa climbers I talked to don't really want to be doing this business, but when you live in this super-remote mountain valley where there is this highway of money coming through, you go out and risk your life.

Before commercial expeditions, there were only three things: yak, buckwheat, and potatoes. When you can make 30 times as much money carrying loads up icefalls and setting up tents on Everest, you're going to not do the buckwheat. A lot of these guys are just trying to do it long enough to get their kids in a private school in Kathmandu and build a teahouse in their village, where they can retire.

There is a slice of the community that lives to climb and go from mountain to mountain, just like my Western friends who do that, but those guys are in an extreme minority. Most do it because it's the only real business. That's one thing a lot of people don't think about.

On the one hand, the tourism money makes a real difference in the lives of the mountain people. On the other hand, is it worth it when your father, son, or husband doesn’t come home? Read more about the Sherpas at NatGeo News.

This Pool Rocks

(video link)

This is not a wave pool. This is a regular Olympic pool in Mexico City, recorded by Brandon Ramirez Urzua as a magnitude 7.2 earthquake hit Mexico on Friday. Fortunately, there were no reports of casualties or major damage. I wouldn’t have wanted to be in the pool when it happened, though. -via Daily Picks and Flicks

Vintage Advertisements Get A Pop Music Makeover

Artist David Redon discovered a fun way to update vintage advertising posters and give them a modern pop culture makeover- he replaced the original subjects with famous musicians.

Redon is the art director for Quai Des Orfevres ad agency in Paris, and the simplicity of each piece as well as the vintage colors are what make his updated posters really work. Snoop Dogg in a gin ad? Fo shizzle.

Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain selling soft serve? Smells like a winner. But Kanye taking the place of Rosie the Riveter? Now that's what I call taking this musical mashup too far!

Of course we'll share everything! That's what families do.

By the way: did the family pay for that pizza? Or did I?

Cat Tries to Steal Fish

(YouTube link)

This cat thinks he’s got it all figured out: just walk over there and take one of those tasty fish hanging from a thin metal rafter. He apparently overestimated either his abilities or the width of the rafter. The entertainment value of the video is slightly improved by the shakiness -that's due to the videographer giggling. -via Tastefully Offensive

These Knockoff Products Seem Totally Legit

Most people have had a bad experience with knockoff products, thinking it'll be just as good as the original only to find that it just doesn’t live up to the original, and yet people keep buying knockoffs because they're cheap.

Well, you get what you pay for, and when you buy a Skerple instead of a Sharpie you know you’re getting less marker for your money. Even worse- when the product's name asks the consumer to figure out for themselves "Could it be butter?" you're better off paying a few more bucks for the real thing.

You can see more of these hilarious bootleg products in BuzzFeed's 30 Knockoff Products That Are Almost Better Than The Real Thing.

Car Fire in Safari Park

Where would be the absolutely worst place for your car to catch fire? In the lion enclosure of a drive-through safari. And that’s what happened to Helen Clements and her two children when they visited Longleat Safari Park in Wiltshire, England.

Mrs Clements said she thought her car had overheated when it stopped inside the enclosure.

"Then basically, we thought: 'That's not steam, that's actually smoke'," she told BBC News.

"It was getting thicker and thicker and obviously coming into us, and then we saw flames."

She sounded her horn and both she and George opened their doors, before rangers came running towards them.

"Unfortunately they were shouting to us: 'Get back in the car, do not get out of the car'," she added.

Her son ran out but she called him back and within moments, a ranger had pulled up in a vehicle and got them out of the car.

They could not see the lions at the time as other cars were in front of them.

The lions did not approach, because they are smart enough to know fire when they see it. Still, it was a frightening incident. Rangers moved the lions out of the enclosure before firefighters extinguished the flames. -via Arbroath

Something's Not Right About These PS2 Games

(Images Via azjabar)

Gamers don’t always purchase games based on the look of the cover art, especially if they already know what to expect when they bring the game home, but the crazy cover art on these pirated Playstation 2 games spotted by Imgur user azjabar in an Iraqi market might make someone think twice before buying.

The pirate photoshop (ms paint?) jockeys who created these incredibly bad covers weren’t looking to impress gamers with their glorious graphic design skills, but the fact that they don’t even bother to find out what the games are actually called, and at least attempt to imitate the original cover, makes them look even more bootleg than most bootlegs!

Pitch Drop in Progress

(YouTube link)

The longest-running scientific experiment in the world is the Pitch Drop that began in Queensland, Australia, in 1927. The setup is basically putting pitch in a funnel and see if it drips out. The point is to prove that pitch is a viscous liquid that will flow, instead of a solid. The problem is that it takes years for a drop to actually drop, and has never been witnessed. Read more about the history of the experiment here. A similar experiment has been running since 1944 in Scotland, and a drop was videotaped for the first time last year. Now, the ninth drop of the Queenland University Pitch Drop has made its way down.

This video is a time lapse of the past two years of the Pitch Drop experiment. The ninth drop has now collided with the eighth drop! However, it has yet to separate from the pitch above it. You can watch the progress of the pitch drop live on a very boring webcam. You can also sign up to be notified in case anything happens. -via Digg

This Pile of Spaghetti and Meatballs Is Actually a Cake

Ann Reardon is the baker responsible for the Twitter and Instagram logo cakes. She made this birthday cake for her husband. It is not, I stress, a mound of fondant, as so many artistic "cakes" are these days. It's actually a carrot cake covered with frosting squirted on to resemble spaghetti. The meatballs are Ferrero Rocher chocolate candies. The spaghetti sauce consists of a mixture of raspberries, lemon juice, white chocolate, and pieces of carrot cake. You can find her how-to video embedded below.

Poem: I Hate Poetry

A fifth-grader named Panajotis wrote a poem for a slam poetry project during an Adventures in Creative Writing field trip. He obviously hates poetry, which is surprising, because it’s a rather good poem.

I hate poetry!
Poetry looks like a demon rising.
I don’t want to do this.
Poetry sounds like nails on a chalkboard.
I still don’t want to do this.
Poetry smells like skunk spray times

I still will not don’t want to do this.
Poetry tastes like rotten eggs with human brains.
I will never do this again.
Poetry feels like being frozen by a freeze ray.
Doesn’t everybody hate poetry?

Hey, Panajotis, poems are like everything else. There’s some very good poetry, and then there’s a lot of very bad poetry. I think he is well on his way to telling the difference. -via The Daily Dot

Butterfly Street Art Project - Swarm The World

Street art comes in all kinds of different shapes and sizes, but the most dynamic evolution of outlaw art is the introduction of dynamic mediums beyond paintings, posters or stencils.

Yarn bombing, sculptural installations, and tile pixel art have all taken street art to new places and helped it reach new audiences, and now artist Tasha Lewis has begun a new project that will bring a bit of wonder to the world- by decorating public places with throngs of blue butterflies.

She calls the project "Swarm The World," and she has made over 4,000 magnetic butterflies to both put up herself and send to folks across the globe, so they can bring a bit of monochromatic insect life to their concrete jungle.

Finally! Shopping Center Introduces Passing Lane

(Photo: Meadowhall)

I'm a fast walker. When I'm moving around, I'm trying to get at my destination, not enjoy the scenery. So shopping can be a frustrating experience when I get stuck behind someone waddling down the middle of a walkway at 1 MPH. This problem is especially aggravating when shopping carts are involved.

A mall in Sheffield, UK is now taking a bold stand against the human speed bumps that cause so much frustration for good and decent people in the world. After reading a complaint letter by 10-year old Chloe Nash-Lowe (who deserves some sort of Nobel Prize for her efforts), the managers of the Meadowhall Shopping Centre have created a passing lane. When you want to get around traffic clogs, get into the fast lane.

Now let's spread this great idea to sidewalks, grocery stores, and hallways everywhere. Forward!

Game of Thrones Three-Eyed Crow

In the TV series Game of Thrones, a three-eyed crow appeared to one character in a dream. Allis Markham is a taxidermist who runs the blog Prey. She decided to make a three-eyed crow for a friend who is a fan of the show.

I'm not usually one for 'novelty taxidermy' but my friend recently finished grad school and is a very big Game of Thrones fan-- as am I. So, I decided she deserved a three-eyed crow [as featured in the books and television show]. Here are some of the finished shots and here is a link to my entire taxidermy process.

You can see more pictures of the crow in two imgur albums, but be warned that they include photos of taxidermy work on a dead bird. -via Geeks Are Sexy

Beware The Claw Machine, For It Craves Children!

(Video Link)

Kids and claw machines- what was once a novelty grade emergency has become an epidemic. Across the globe unsuspecting children are being swallowed up by ravenous claw machines no longer satisfied with mere quarters.

Claw machines have developed a rather unusual trait for snaring their young prey- they present the toy which the child desires most of all inside their bellies, then leave their prize hatch unlocked so the curious child can climb in after the shiny new toy.

Once the child is inside the machine begins to slowly digest the child using plush toys as makeshift stomach acid molecules, but since this process can take months most children are saved from the claw machine's evil clutches.

The child in this video was one of the lucky ones, but can your child resist the allure of the claw machine?
