How to Have An Easter Egg Hunt For Cats

(YouTube link)

Watch these cats try their paws at an Easter egg hunt -they look confused at first, but there’s catnip and cat treats all over the place! And toys to play with! And these eggs roll around so nicely! It seems like a lot of fun, but my cats would rather be out looking for real bunnies, chicks, ducks, and frogs. One cat keep eyeing the ducks and geese down at the river, but they are all bigger than he is. The cats from Furball Fables enjoyed their hunt, without all the competitiveness you see in human egg hunts. -Thanks, Chase!

Star Trek: The Next Generation Easter Eggs

(Image: unknown)

The senior officers of the Enterprise-D are ready for the annual Easter egg hunt. Everyone looks happy about it, except for Worf. That's because he's afraid that Riker will once again get the most chocolate eggs.

Nitpick: Data should have 2 and a half rank pips, not 3. He was a Lieutenant Commander, not a full Commander.

College Professor Suspended Over GOT Quote on Daughter's T-shirt

Francis Schmidt is an art and animation professor at Bergen Community College in New Jersey. He is also a Game of Thrones fan, as is his family. In January, Schmidt posted a picture of his 7-year-old daughter doing a yoga pose while wearing her father’s t-shirt to Google+. The t-shirt had a quote from Game of Thrones printed on it:  “I will take what is mine with fire & blood.” The college dean saw the picture and called Schmidt in to speak to college officials, who asked if the photograph “represented a threat against the dean.”

Schmidt said the Human Resources and security officials who interviewed him seemed unfamiliar with the show, so he searched for the quote on Google and came up with 30.8 million hits.

He said the interview, however, led to his suspension without pay and a trip to a psychiatrist before he was cleared to return to campus.

Schmidt said he asked the officials why they thought the slogan was threatening, and one said “when you see the word fire, then someone shows up with an AK-47 here shooting everybody,” he said.

“I had no idea what to say to that. For God’s sake, I’m a middle-aged art professor,” Schmidt said. “I don’t own any firearms.”

For one thing, the shirt is obviously mass-produced. For another thing, there was no mention of the college or the dean in the Google+ post. And the shirt was worn by his child! One explanation is that the college is going through some struggles: the faculty is working without a contract and have cast a no-confidence vote against the school’s president. The labor dispute must have the entire administration on edge -so much that none of them can watch TV or read about pop culture. Schmidt has since been reinstated, and given back pay for missing the first week of the semester. -via Uproxx

Who Killed Piggy Palmer? - Muppets Dressed As Twin Peaks Characters

There have been all kinds of strange examples of Muppets mashup art making their way onto the interwebs, from the kinda freaky look of Muppet zombies to the extremely terrifying Muppets as real people, but the latest mashup making the rounds is disturbing both visually and mentally- The Muppets as Twin Peaks characters by illustrator Justin DeVine

Miss Piggy is cold, lifeless and wrapped in plastic, Gonzo is doing his weirdo dance in the Red Room, and Kermit Cooper is too hopped up on coffee to find Piggy’s killer, truly the darkest days ever experienced by the puppet troupe.

David Lynch productions are already pretty strange, but think about how strange Twin Peaks would have been if it had starred the Muppets!

The Ultimate Cosplay Hero - Captain Patch-It

A new hero has emerged on the swag littered floor of fandom conventions, a selfless superstar who brings much needed supplies to cosplayers weary from a day of posing for pictures and pushing through crowds.

He is Captain Patch-It, and his superpower is being prepared for almost any cosplay emergency, armed with everything a cosplayer in peril might need- glue gun, safety pins, thread and needles, all kinds of tape including duct and electrical, scissors, hair pins and a helping hand.

Captain Patch-It made his first appearance at Supanova Melbourne, and he’s hoping to inspire convention goers to form their own chapter of the International Cosplay Corps, so they can help other cosplayers in need at conventions across the globe.

22 Fun Facts About Clueless

The 1995 film Clueless was a favorite coming-of-age film for a large section of the internet generation. It made an entire cohort think of “Cher” as a different person from who the rest of us think of. But as for any movie, there are a lot of fun facts behind the scenes you probably didn’t know. For example, as much as writer-director Amy Heckerling studied teenage girls to write the dialogue, not all of the humor came from the script.

3. The "Haitians" Mispronunciation Was All Silverstone.

You know how Cher rallies for America opening its borders to the Haiti-ans? The script read "Haitians" and Silverstone made an honest mistake. But before producers could rush in and correct her, Heckerling demanded they let her go. "I had to stop them," she remembers. "It was much funnier the way she said it. That was Cher."

4. Reese Witherspoon Could Have Been Cher.

Witherspoon already had a few film roles to her credit in The Man in The Moon, A Far Off Place and Jack The Bear. Silverstone only had the Lolita-horror feature The Crush on her filmography. But with no pressure from the studio to cast stars, Heckerling picked the ingénue who she felt had "that Marilyn Monroe thing" that captured "a vague notion in my head of Cher as a pretty, sweet blonde, who, in spite of being the American ideal, people still really like."

There are plenty of video clips to accompany 22 Fun Facts About Clueless at mental_floss.

Peeps Versus A Red Hot Ball Of Nickel

(Video Link)

Sugary snacks have been an Easter tradition ever since a human-sized rabbit crawled out of a cave and laid a giant pink chocolate egg, or something like that, and one of the most iconic Easter snacks are Peeps- those marshmallow birdies and bunnies that look cute and taste like a giant pile of sugary fluff.

Peeps are very colorful, and therefore fun to watch meet a fiery end, whether blowing up in a microwave or expanding to epic proportions in a vacuum chamber, but this year Peeps are meeting their end in a hot new way- death by red hot ball of nickel.

If you can't eat them, turn them into a giant molten pile of goo!

5 Legendary Art Trials

Taking masterpieces to court is a tradition as old as the legal system. So is letting them off the hook.

1. India Balks at Arundhati Roy’s Matchmaking

Released in 1997, Indian writer Arundhati Roy’s The God of Small Things won Britain’s prestigious Booker Prize. It also won the attention of outraged locals. But it wasn’t the scenes of incest or pedophilia that offended these critics. Instead, the book—a complex tale involving multiple time lines and generations along with plenty of political intrigue—drew jeers because it told a love story between members of different castes.

Roy, an outspoken political activist, was accused of “corrupting public morality” and faced obscenity charges in her home state of Kerala. According to Roy, while the judge didn’t want to punish her, he also couldn’t ignore the local government, which found the book offensive. So he put off making a decision—for 10 years!

THE VERDICT: When a new judge finally took on the case, he dismissed the charges. That may seem like a victory, but Roy’s fiction career ground to a halt in the interim, and she still hasn’t produced a follow-up novel.

2. The U.S. Government Confiscates Underwear

American artist J.S.G. Boggs makes money. Literally. Boggs draws intricately detailed bank notes, crafting whimsical takeoffs of actual U.S. currency. Unlike legal tender, however, Boggs’s bills feature his own signature as “Secret of the Treasury.” One of his works is worth “tan dollars.” Sometimes the bills are bright orange and issued from the Florida United Numismatists (they have FUN scrawled across them in giant letters). Others bear the portraits Boggs believes they should have—Harriet Tubman is featured on one, while Boggs’s self-portrait modestly graces the $5,000 bill.

What makes his art dicier is the performance component. Boggs barters with people, offering to pay for goods and services with his hand-drawn bills but only for items of lesser value—a $10 bill for a $9.75 meal, for instance. Change and a receipt must be provided. He also trades exclusively with people who are unfamiliar with his legend. Unfortunately for Boggs, U.S. law forbids color illustrations of currency unless a big NONNEGOTIABLE is slapped across the front in quarter-inch-tall letters. From 1990 to 1992, Secret Service agents raided exhibits in Boggs’s study, his home, and his Carnegie Mellon University office. They seized more than 1,000 pieces of his artwork. And not just bills—they also took “rugs, cakes, cookies, and underwear with images of money on them,” Boggs says.

1-Sided Die

A 4-sided die is a pyramid. A 2-sided die is a coin. What's a 1-sided die? It's a Möbius strip. No matter how you throw it, the die will always land on its only side. Awesome Dice developed it for role-playing games, such as Dungeons & Dragons.

Now to the obvious question: why would you ever need a 1-sided die?

It's a way of resolving conflicts that come up in gaming sessions. Sometimes there are argumentative players who press a game master to randomly roll outcomes rather than verbally lead the players along a storyline. When you have such a player in your group, get out your 1-sided die.

The creators put it this way:

Imagine this all too common scenario faced every day by D&D DMs around the world: your group is in a dungeon crawl. There’s a room with a pie in it, and the pie is guarded by an orc. If the characters open the door, one of these things happen:

1. The orc attacks

That’s it, there’s only the one option. So the characters do indeed open the door and the poor DM consults the chart. Unfortunately the smallest die type he has is a d4, so our DM has no choice but to roll the d4 over and over until he gets a 1 before he knows what the orc is going to do.

This is exactly the situation that 1-sided dice are designed to solve. Now the DM can grab the d1 and quickly roll just one time, see what the orc will do, and get on with the action of the game. In this way 1-sided dice make your game move faster and better.

Dancing on a Street Corner

They had a bet on the game that the loser had to dance on a street corner in Provo, Utah, to whatever music the winner selects. He thought it was going to be humiliating, until people started joining him! The obvious reaction: “And that, kids, is how I met your mother.” -via reddit

Adorable Friendship Between A Farmer And His Pigs

Old MacDonald may have had a farm, which was home to lots of very repetitive animals, but there's one thing he didn't have- the kind of loving relationship shared between farmer Otchan and his beloved pigs.

The hog wild Japanese pig farmer tends to a whopping 1,200 pigs, and you can tell by the look on his face that he loves every minute he spends with his porcine pals.

Kagawa-based photographer Toshiteru Yamaji has been documenting the incredible bond shared between Otchan and his pigs for over ten years, collecting many of the best photos in a book called Pigs and Papa.

Reservoir to be Drained Due to Urination (Again)

The Mount Tabor Reservoir in Portland, Oregon, has been taken offline because a man was seen on security video urinating into it Wednesday morning about 1AM. Two other men were seen trying to scale the fence, one successfully. As a result, 38 million gallons of water will be flushed from the reservoir

“That water goes directly into people's homes," David Shaff, Portland Water Bureau administrator said. "There is no way to re-treat it."

The three teens were cited for trespassing and one for public urination. Additional charges could be filed as the investigation continues.

"We are not in the arid Southwest," Shaff said, "We have hundreds of millions of gallons available, so that makes it an easy call for me" to discard the water. He estimated the cost of cleaning and replacing the water at several thousand dollars.

This is not the first time the Mount Tabor reservoir has been drained because a man peed in it. An incident in 2011 caused 7.8 million gallons to be flushed. Federal regulations now say that water reservoirs must be covered, a project that Portland will complete in 2015. -via Arbroath

This Man Runs Marathons with a 93-Pound Refrigerator Strapped to His Back

(Photo: Tony the Fridge)

Because marathons just aren't hard enough, Tony "The Fridge" Pheonix-Morrison of Hebburn, UK, runs them while carrying a refrigerator.

It began as an attempt to get sponsors for a charity run for cancer research. The refrigerator stunt immediately grabbed public attention. It was a brutal experience. But Tony kept going, running more races. Most recently, he attempted the 24 Hour Challenge. That's running 4 marathons in a 24-hour period. In an interview with The Tynesider, he describes what it was like:

It was nothing short of a nightmare. It was a real test of my will to get through it. I hadn’t slept the night before or ate properly; it was the worst possible start. It’s a case of having the mental strength to stay focused on the moment. I couldn’t allow myself the time to think about finishing. The times I did were terrifying. I still have no feeling in six of my toes. The doctors said if I’d ran another five miles I would have broke both my feet because of the weight of the fridge.

Tony didn't complete that racing goal, but he did finish 2 of the marathons.

ALT/1977: We Are Not Time Travelers

Alex Varanese designed a very peculiar ad campaign based on a very particular premise.

What would you do if you could travel back in time? Assassinate Marilyn Monroe? Go on a date with Hitler? Obviously. But here's what I'd do after that: grab all the modern technology I could find, take it to the late 70's, superficially redesign it all to blend in, start a consumer electronics company to unleash it upon the world, then sit back as I rake in billions, trillions, or even millions of dollars.

The products are a cell phone, an mp3 player, a laptop, and a handheld game system. These would floor anyone in 1977, not only for how well they perform their tasks, but by how amazingly small they are. But the ad style, and even the overly-orange redesigns would be feel right at home in 1977. I never even saw a computer, a mobile phone, or a Walkman until the 1980s, and the game system would have been like some alien technology to me back in college. See the rest of Varanese’s ads at his website. -via Metafilter

Abechan The Mynah Bird Speaks Perfect Japanese

(Video Link)

(Video Link)

Many people find learning the Japanese language, both written and spoken, to be quite a daunting task, but the little chatterbox of a mynah bird in this video named Abechan is so good at speaking Japanese that he sounds just like his owner!

Abechan's proud owner has created a YouTube channel just for him entitled newSuperAbechan, which is full of videos showing Abechan and his owner carrying on conversations about everyday things, like what one should say when answering the house phone.

The duo should really consider creating their own prank video series, because seeing the expression on people's faces when they realize they've been talking to a bird would be priceless!

The Kindergarten Tribes

I kiss my son goodbye and I stand at the fence watching him as he enters into the kindergarten school yard. I hope for another wave, but he pays no more attention to me. He drops his backpack near the place he is supposed to line up. Almost instantly he is greeted by a bevy of girls who chat with him for just a moment. Then he is off running wildly through the grass with another little boy. He is a citizen of his class and school. I am but a privileged outsider. I remain his confidant at home, but at school he is one of them.  He must navigate his way through the Kindergarten Tribes on his own.

From eight in the morning, until two in the afternoon, five days a week, he is part of Room 3. They march together, break bread together, and learn together. Their life is regimented. Each moment inside the classroom is accounted for. Structure is imperative. Without structure the class would break out into chaos. Even with structure there is sometimes chaos.  

Twice a day, during recess and lunch, however, the children of Room 3 are permitted free play time. Of course they have some play time in the classroom, but for safety and sanity that must be limited and more structured. I don’t think you can really call it true free play time. The true free play time comes when the children are released from the confines of their tiny classroom and marched to the wide open space of the kindergarten playground and set free.

I think it is only fair to note that my understanding of the playground tribes comes purely from my son’s accounts and perceptions. In the quiet of our kitchen he sits and tells me about his other life. He animatedly describes his adventures as a citizen of Room 3. He especially likes to talk about the playground tribes, but he swears me to secrecy.  The information he relays to me is classified. The tribes pride themselves on protecting their secrets.

The story he weaves is about two tiny neighboring kingdoms known as Room 2 and Room 3. Each kingdom houses about 25 citizens. Twice a day these kingdoms merge on the playground. From this melding 5 main tribes with 5 distinct leaders have arisen:  The Diggers, The Minecrafters, The Ballers, and The Superheroes and The Girls.

The Diggers

The Diggers are comprised of students who like to dig. They spend all or most of their free time in the sand area digging and building sand structures. There about 7 members of The Digger tribe.

A Pringles Can Pipe Organ

Although it may look like a salty version of the Iron Throne (and not by coincidence), this is actually a functional pipe organ made of cans of Pringles potato chips. Fall on Your Sword, an art collective in Brooklyn, made it for Gawker and Pringles.

It has 10 keys beneath spring-mounted cans. Pressing on each key plays a note. You can see it in action in this video:


(Video Link)

A byproduct of this project was 6 bags of uneaten potato chips. Fall on Your Sword plans to soon reveal what it did with them. Since its members are artists, I'll guess that it's something more impressive than just eating them, which is what I would do.

Brilliant Truck Design Concept: A Full-Length Bed

I've owned a full-size pickup truck only once, but I really enjoyed it. It was nice to be able to casually toss materials in the back and drive them around. It had a long bed--about 7 feet, I think--which helped.

But sometimes even a 7-foot bed isn't enough. Let's say that you're transporting 8-foot sheets of plywood. You'll have to let the ends hang over the tailgate.

That's why Jason Torchinsky's design concept is both clever and crazy. Assuming that it can be properly balanced, this design would let you move things that are almost as long as your truck itself:

Actually, I think it could be sort of L-shaped, with an extra bit of bed behind the 1/2-width cab. There could also be a nice big lockable trunk on the cab side as well, for tools, Fabergé eggs, and other valuables people tend to keep in trucks. P

It'd probably have to have an inline 4 or 6 in that narrowed engine bay, but I'm plenty happy with that. This design could be huge with plumbers and welders and carpenters and gardeners and pretty much anyone who's sick of tying a red rag to the end of all that stuff that sticks out too far of a normal pickup.

He calls it “taking it easy.” You might want to take a dramamine, or even a valium first. This POV video may make you feel a bit lightheaded, or possibly terrified. If you enjoy that sort of thing, watch it in full screen. This was recorded during a Red Bull-sponsored event in Utah last fall.  -via The Chive

Chopines--A Bizarre Form of Platform Shoes from 500 Years Ago

(Photos: Bata Shoe Museum)

Pictured above and below are chopines of Venice--platform shoes worn by upper class women and their imitators during the Sixteenth Century. To learn more about this fashion oddity, Collector's Weekly interviewed Elizabeth Semmelhack, a curator at the Bata Shoe Museum in Toronto.

These extreme platform shoes may have been impractical for everyday life. But to an extent, that was the point. Semmelhack explains that ihey offered upper class women in Spain and Venice a way to show off their wealth. This is especially true in Spain, where women wore their dresses to the tops of their chopines. In Venice, dresses extended to the ground, so the chopine was regarded as an undergarment.

As you can see from these examples, they were very fancy undergarments.


(Video Link)

Here's a video of Semmelhack tracing the history and development of what she calls "one of the most extreme forms of footwear ever worn in Western dress."

The Plastic Foods of Kappabashi

Juergen Horn and Mike Powell are exploring Tokyo for 91 days, and bringing us reports on what they find. One thing that impressed them was the plastic food in every restaurant.

We love plastic food. When deciding between restaurants, we’ll always choose the one with the most plastic food in its windows. No, it’s not some strange new diet. It’s just that, in Japan, menus tend to be written in Japanese and only Japanese. (The nerve!) Frequently, the plastic foods in the window are the only way for us to know what’s being offered. They also provide a convenient way to order. Rather than attempting to mime “Curry Udon”, we can just drag the waitress outside and point.

Recently, they found a street called Kappabashi-dōri, where the restaurants buy their supplies, including plastic food of all kinds. Read all about it and see lots more pictures at Tokyo For 91 Days.

If Hayao Miyazaki Films Were Like Other Anime

Hayao Miyazaki is the master filmmaker responsible for anime classics such as My Neighbor Totoro and Princess Mononoke. He has a fairly consistent style of storytelling and animation. If you watch a fair amount of anime, you'll easily notice the differences.

This College Humor video imagines Miyazaki's films as though he wasn't original and imitated other shows, including Naruto*, Voltron, Sailor Moon, and Pokémon.

*Or maybe Dragon Ball Z. I haven't seen either show, so I'm just guessing.

What is your favorite Miyazaki movie?

Sad Desk Lunch

When you feel like the leftovers you took to the office for lunch aren’t the greatest, turn to the blog Sad Desk Lunch and see what other office workers are eating. It might make you feel better. Or it might make you feel worse, in which case, just snap a picture and send it in.

The again, you might be feeling pretty good about your work lunch, but you see that someone else, eating the very same thing, submitted it because they considered it sad. And it is, but not because the food is bad.

Sad Desk Lunch isn’t about how great your lunch is. And it’s not about how crappy your lunch is either. It’s about the fact you eat your lunch at your desk during your lunch break where you could roam free. Step outside. Breathe a little. Americans have a tendency never to take their lunch break and sit around, munch on their sandwich or carefully homemade bento box, at their desk.
