The Garden of Earthly Delights by Jheronimus Bosch

You’ve seen the painting, but you’ve never seen it up close like this! An interactive look at The Garden of Earthly Delights lets you zoom in on the details of the hi-res image and hear the stories behind them. Or you can take a virtual guided tour of the painting, and see all the narrated details. For example, the scene above is in the far right corner of the triptych. The narration tells us:

An ink jar is dangling from the mouth of a helmeted demon. A man wearing a pale-red robe and a pig dressed up as a nun try to persuade a soul to sign a document. This is a serious legal document, the red seals are testimony enough. But what exactly is this man signing for?
Maybe they want the man to sign a pact with the devil to sell his soul. To make it look more convincing, the three have dressed up as a knight, nun and clerk, respectively. The nude man is on to them, it seems, as he is casting anxious looks at the viewer, as if pleading for help. At the same time he seems to be warning us: Don’t fall for the devil’s tricks!

The interactive feature was made to promote a series of three Dutch documentaries about Hieronymus Bosch and his creations. -via Metafilter

8th Grader Makes Impossible Buzzer-Time Shot to Win the Championship


(Video Link)

It's like the climactic scene of a movie.

St. John of the Cross School and St. Cletus Catholic School faced off at at Immaculate Conception High School in Illinois in the basketball game to decide the champion of the Surburban Parish League. The score was tied at 28. The clock ticked down.

Just as the buzzer rang, Jack Hlavin of St. John of the Cross hurled the ball across three-fourths of the court toward St. Cletus's basket. It swooshed through perfectly, delivering the victory to St. John of the Cross and its newest hero, Jack Hlavin.

Appropriately, the crowd erupted in delight at this amazing shot.

Movie Plot Generator

We talk about recurring themes in blockbuster movies, because new stories feel as if they pull elements out of a hat and just combine them in new ways. John Atkinson at Wrong Hands put together a chart that makes new movie ideas a cinch, Mad-Libs style! Out one from each column together: Adjective, subject, verb, clause, and you’re very likely to say, “I’d go see that!” Of course, there’s a good chance you’d also realize, “I’ve seen that movie!”

Nora's the Name, Slaying People With Cute is the Game




YouTube Link

Animal lovers, particularly those who treasure polar bears, may want to grab on to a sturdy surface prior to hitting play, due to possibility of serious swoon. This is Nora, the three-month-old polar bear cub at Columbus Zoo and Aquarium (whom I've once featured previously at Neatorama before she was old and mobile enough to do much but look and sound adorable while sleeping).

Now a curious, roly poly bear-in-training, this clip shows Nora roaming around the off-display areas of her zoo home, having fun and attending to important tasks such as giving the sign that announces her moniker a little taste test. The cub's name was decided by a public vote, and is a combination of letters in the names of her parents, mother Aurora and father Nanuq. Nora will not be available to be seen by zoo visitors until her keepers are satistfied that she is emotionally and physically ready.

Learn more about and see additional video clips of Nora at the Facebook page of the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium. It's updated frequently, is well done and is worth the time for any animal enthusiast.

Bammies Are Pajamas You Can Wear To Work

Dressing up in business attire for your day job is no fun, and no matter how good you think your outfit looks you know that business wear isn't made for comfort.

So what's a climber of corporate ladders to do when they're looking for something both comfortable and stylish to wear to work?

They need some Bammies, the pajamas that are business appropriate in style yet so comfortable to wear you might fall asleep at your desk.

The Bammies line was designed by Julia Ford-Carther and Rosario Chozas to "seamlessly transition from the home to the office then out for a night on the town", starting the "elastic revolution" with their smart yet sleepy-headed designs.

The TARDIS Awakens

It’s a testament to the quality of the first trailer for The Force Awakens that so many video mixmasters use its style to promote other things. We’ve seen the original Star Wars movie done this way, and Masters of the Universe, too. Even the US Navy put themselves into it. Now let’s see how well it works with Doctor Who.  

(YouTube link)

YouTube member VG934 looks back to 2005, when Doctor Who was rebooted for a modern audience. He used the trailer for The Force Awakens to make a trailer for Doctor Who Series 1, when Rose Tyler met the Doctor. Makes you want to watch it right now, huh? -via Laughing Squid

Florida Man Loses Car Keys, Locks Himself in Trunk While Looking for Them


(Unrelated photo via Kārlis Dambrāns)

Deputy Sheriff Seth Hopp of Monroe County, Florida found a car with all 4 doors open, but no one inside. When he approached, the heard knocking coming from inside the trunk. He ordered whoever was inside to come out. "I can't!" replied a voice from inside the trunk. The Sun Sentinel reports:

"I opened the trunk and a...male emerged," said Hopp. And the male had an unusual explanation for his predicament.

After going for a walk on the beach, Moore told the deputy, "he was looking for the keys to the vehicle and had accidently fallen in the trunk while searching for the keys. The trunk then closed on top of him."

What happened to Moore's keys remains unknown. The deputy may have opened the trunk using an in-car release, said Monroe County Sheriff's spokeswoman Becky Herrin.

Surprisingly, drugs were involved:

During his interview with Hopp, Moore told the deputy he had in the car a pill bottle containing marijuana.

Animal Advertising Agency of Stockholm, Sweden, noticed that while most domains that have political candidates'names in them get snapped up, trumpdonald.org was available.

A Collection Of Really Good Ideas

(Image Link)

The internet is full of bad content, bad people, and really, really bad ideas, but there's actually just as much good stuff to be found there if you're willing to dig around in the muck for a while.

That's why it's fortunate so many sites like to dig around for us, compiling their findings into a healthy collection of info nuggets for our brains to gobble up via our eyeballs.

(Image Link)

In this case, the nuggets are pictures depicting some really good ideas for businesses, spotted while out in the real world, ideas like a kid sized door for your Dairy Queen.

(Image Link)

Some of the ideas are fun, others are absolute game changers that we shouldn't have had to live without for so long, like this grocery store that lets you buy a "Walkin' Around Beer" for a buck. Now that's grocery shopping in style!

Fine Feathers

Fine Feathers is a 1968 short film by Canadian animator Evelyn Lambart. The entire production is made of paper, painted and cut into pieces.

Two rival birds trade in their feathers for something they believe is prettier: cedar branches for the blue jay, and red oak leaves for the loon. But they soon find out that beauty is fleeting, and vanity has its drawbacks. -via The Kid Should See This

The Map of British Television

Are you a fan of British TV shows? You might be interested in finding out where your favorite series is set. Tim Ritz created a map that will help you out. See it full size here.

The most popular TV shows are plotted into their setting, even if it’s a fictional town (indicated by “apostrophes”). If the show is actually filmed somewhere besides its setting, that it also indicated. That’s what surprised me the most- the biggest part of the shows are produced in the town or region the story is set in. In the US, everything is produced in either Los Angeles or New York. There are a few notable exceptions like Breaking Bad or The Walking Dead, which cause both locals and tourists to go nuts. You can buy a print of this map at Society 6.

10 Notorious Outlaws Who Became Folk Heroes

Outlaws break the law, and folk heroes are those that the public identify with and root for. Robin Hood stole from the rich and gave to the poor, which made him famously popular among the poor -but he was a fictional character. Ned Kelly defied authorities in Australia and was aided and abetted by regular folks along the way. History has plenty of outlaw folk heroes you’ve never heard of, like Herman Perry, a US soldier in a unit charged with building the Ledo Road in India during World War II.   

A few decades before the Civil Rights Movement, African-American units received the jobs nobody else wanted to do; additionally, they worked under the supervision of white officers who had no scruples in treating them harshly. Having suffered from disease, exhaustion, and mistreatment, Herman Perry (1922-1945) finally snapped. He shot his commanding officer, who had ordered an inhumane incarceration, and hid in the jungle where he met and mixed with a native tribe, the Nagas, who were greatly feared as skilled headhunters. Perry quickly became sort of an icon for his native friends, who were happy to help him out, and his reputation skyrocketed when he married the 14-year-old daughter of a Naga chieftain.

Read the rest of Perry's story, and those of nine other folk heroes from around the world.  -via the Presurfer

It's What We Do - At Least She's Up Front About Her Backstabbing!


It's What We Do by Tom Trager

You can't expect villains to change their ways just because they're being entrusted with a top secret mission, just like you can't expect a government agency to care about all the lives lost in pursuit of their prime objective. But you can count on villains like Harley to laugh in the face of death, and when they team up to form a squad of psychos who'd rather be dead than incarcerated they just might have a shot at taking down the big bosses. But don't be surprised if Miss Quinn and Mister J throw a monkey wrench in the gears of the operation, because sabotaging the good guys is what they do best!

Bring some maniacal smiles to the faces of your fellow fans with this It's What We Do t-shirt by Tom Trager, it's the perfect shirt to wear whether you're a supervillain's henchman or simply someone who adores superheroic cinema!

Are You Ready for Some Otterball?

We're huge fans of the Puppy Bowl and even the Kitten Bowl (despite the fact that it's a blatant rip off), but if you're looking for some live animal sports, some new teams or just a little more water in the game, you'll want to head to the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach to enjoy the second annual Otter Bowl.

(Video Link)

The otters in the otter bowl aren't just limited to boring old footballs and even toy balls, they even are given a special football made out of clams.

If you're looking for a little live animal championship entertainment but happen to be in San Francisco rather than LA, be sure to stop by the live Puppy Bowl at Gott's Roadside. Best of all, the athletes are all up for adoption there so you could even bring home a new best friend.

The Wedding Vows

There’s nothing wrong with writing your own wedding views, but hey, you’re supposed to hammer out the details of the contract negotiations before the ceremony!

In some places, the squabbles are over how many cows one family pays another family when a match is made between their children. In others, a pre-nup spells out what each party is entitled to when the marriage goes south. It makes more sense to spell out the day-to-day interactions for the marriage itself, doesn’t it? This vignette is from John McNamee at Pie Comic.

Wearable Nail Polish Holder

How do you keep your nail polish bottle balanced while brushing your nails? Here's a clever invention that is a lot simpler than growing a third arm for the task. Liz and Mark invented Tweexy, a wearable bottle holder. It's like a ring pop, but less tasty.

The inventors first measured 250 bottles of nail polish to gauge the range of sizes, then designed a flexible silicone cup that would hold the largest number of them. Slip the bottle inside, then the Tweexy onto your fingers. Little wings on the ends make it easier to switch the Tweexy from hand to hand with wet nails.

A Bad Lip Reading of the NFL 2015-2016 Season (part two)

When we posted part one, I thought the Bad Lip reading folks were going to wait until after the Super Bowl to give us part two of the NFL Bad Lip Reading video, but no. It makes sense to do it now, because everyone will forget about football soon after Sunday’s game. Here it is!

You don’t have to be a football fan to enjoy this, because what they’re saying is straight up nonsense that perfectly matches what their lips do. Like I always said, these waffles are gourmet. You gotta stir the bowl. Stir the bowl. -via Uproxx

Missing Cat Found a Year Later, Fat from Living in a Pet Food Warehouse

(Photo: Kennelgate Pet Superstores)

When he was 9 months old, Clive the cat disappeared from this home in Toton, Nottinghamshire, UK. Fourteen months later, he's finally home after spending the time living in a pet store company warehouse.

Kennelgate Pet Superstores maintains that warehouse in the nearby town of Stapleton. Workers there noted that something kept triggering alarms during the night. They found evidence of a cat, which they finally trapped.

Clive was microchipped, so after a veterinarian scanned the chip, it was easy to reunite the cat with his owner, Tanya Irons. She's delighted to have Clive back, even if he's put on a lot of weight. She told the BBC that "I can't believe that he's so porky."

9 Ways Super Fans Have Snuck Into The Super Bowl & Special Events

Back in the day, I got into all kinds of concerts, fairs, and special events free -legitimately- because I was working, with the simple explanation, "I’m working here." That got to be a habit, whether I was working or not. It had to stop when I had children in tow. But it happens, and Phil Haney has collected quite a few different examples of how anonymous folks got away with bypassing an admission charge, whether it’s the Super Bowl or something a little less expensive.

Subtitled R2-D2 is Bitterly Sarcastic


(Video Link)

As it's been said before: droids are slaves. C-3PO is too cheerful about the experience, but R2-D2 isn't. He lets the biological characters know what he thinks about them all the time. They just can't understand him, which is probably a good thing. R2 takes all the risks, does all the work, and gets little of the credit. It's no wonder that he eventually snaps.
