Daredevil Bathes In A Tub Full Of Hot Sauce

Daredevils are a dime a dozen on the internet these days, so those who choose to keep daredevilin' have to come up with more exciting and dangerous stunts to keep their internet audience tuning in.

That means people like Cemre Candar must resort to doing stunts even the guys from Jackass weren't dumb enough to do, like bathing in a tub filled with 1250 bottles of hot sauce.

(YouTube Link)

It's hard to imagine what stunt videos will look like ten years from now, but at this rate daredevils may start disemboweling or beheading themselves for the sake of viewership in the near future.

But then how will they know how many people watched their video?

The Hapless Explorer Who Helped Create the National Park System

In 1870, a group of prominent citizens of the Montana Territory set out on an expedition to map the area known as the Yellowstone country. The Washburn Expedition hoped to confirm or disavow the tall tales of geysers, boiling lakes, and other wonders. Among their number was one Truman Everts, who was very nearsighted and totally unsuited for a wilderness experdition.    

A desk-jockey all his life, Everts had run the Montana Territory’s Internal Revenue department in Helena for the past five years. The Grant administration wanted its own man collecting taxes in Montana, though, and by the summer of 1870, the taxman had been unemployed for seven months. Enamored with the idea of exploring the unknown with Montana’s fellow leading citizens, the middle-aged widower enthusiastically joined the Washburn Expedition. The jaunt into the unknown was to be “sort of a between-jobs vacation for him,” Whittlesey says. Little did Everts know his holiday would become a comic wilderness odyssey—think The Revenant meets National Lampoon’s Vacation—of grit, luck, and utter incompetence that would, against all odds, help lead to the creation of the nation’s first national park.

The first thing Everts did was fall behind the group and become lost. Then his horse ran away with his supplies. The rest of the expedition looked for him for a week, then decided he must have frozen to death. With neither tools nor supplies, Everts continued the best he could. When a prospector found him 37 days later, Everts weighed only 50 pounds. The story of his terrifying time alone in the wilderness, strangely, aided the push to make Yellowstone the United States’ first national park in 1872. Read about Everts’ ordeal at Outside.

Men Fells Neighbor's Tree, Ruins Own Home

Raymond Mazzarella of Pittston Township, Pennsylvania, was upset that his neighbor’s tree was dripping sap on Mazzarella’s car. Saturday afternoon, he took a chainsaw and cut through the tree’s 36-inch trunk. The tree fell on Mazzarella’s apartment building, rendering it uninhabitable and leaving five people homeless.

Police said Mazzarella was being checked out at a hospital. Upon his release Monday afternoon, a neighbor saw Mazzarella trespassing near the apartment house and called police. When the neighbor confronted him, Mazzarella punched him. The neighbor pulled out a stun gun to protect himself. Mazzarella then started hitting him with a baseball bat.

Mazzarella is charged with assault and harassment and is locked up in the Luzerne County jail on $10,000 bail.

The Red Cross is providing the other apartment residents with temporary housing. -via Arbroath

Tom Wilson Is Biff Tannen, Biff Tannen Is Pop Art

(Image Link)

Tom Wilson has appeared in many movies and TV shows, but his mug is still most recognizable as Biff (and Griff and Buford) Tannen from the Back To The Future film franchise.

After the release of the beloved BTTF trilogy Tom couldn't escape the ghost of Biff, but rather than trying to separate himself from his Biffiness Tom embraced his status and accepted that he has "become pop art."

(YouTube Link)

Tom's outlook on fame is refreshing, his passion for Pop Art is infectious, and it appears he has exorcised the ghosts of the Tannen clan with brush strokes and marvelous perspective.

The Top 10 Scuba Diving Spots in the World

Once you’ve learned to scuba dive and invested in the necessary equipment, you’ll certainly want to explore the undersea world. The rest of us can just dream of seeing some of the most beautiful undersea sights around the globe. Check out some destinations for scuba divers and what they have to offer. Somewhere in the middle of the list is Bikini Atoll.

Many know Bikini Atoll as the site of nuclear weapons testing in the mid 1900s, but now it’s a popular spot for those who want to explore wrecks while deep water scuba diving. The area is a veritable graveyard of different ships that you can swim around, including naval ships from World War II. The waters are clear enough to search what’s below, and even today those who dive there commonly find well preserved historical artifacts and other items.

Counter The Effects Of Sitting All Day With These Hip Stretches

The effects of a sedentary lifestyle are a popular research subject for scientists, and everyone who spends a majority of their day sitting hopes these studies will show them how to avoid permanent damage.

But there's an easy and immediate way to help battle against the negative effect sitting all day can have on your joints and keep your lower half moving freely- hip stretches.

(YouTube Link)

You don't have to be a yoga master, or in great shape, to do this hip mobility routine put together by GMB Fitness, but you will look silly while going through the sequence so you should probably stretch in private.

Crafty Pokefan Hides Crochet Pokemon Plushies For Her Fellow Trainers To Find

Hid this guy at the park today hehe

A photo posted by Nichole (@knottynichole) on Aug 9, 2016 at 6:17pm PDT

Pokémon GO has brought people together like no multiplayer ever could, and even people who know nothing about gaming or Pokémon have a ball playing GO.

There have been a few bad GO related incidents, of course, but the GO community as a whole is dedicated to keeping things lighthearted and fun for their fellow gamers.

Going to hide these at pokestops today. #crochetgo

A photo posted by Nichole (@knottynichole) on Aug 10, 2016 at 12:50pm PDT

One dedicated player named @knottynichole has begun crocheting Pokémon plushies and leaving them at pokestops for her fellow trainers to find, adding a sense of wonder to the game.

Happy hunting! #crochetgo

A photo posted by Nichole (@knottynichole) on Aug 10, 2016 at 3:21pm PDT

Given how time consuming it is to crochet each plushie this fun urban art drop project probably won't last long, so anybody who catches one of Nichole's pokeplush should count themselves very lucky!

There's A Section Of Yellowstone Park Where You Can Get Away With Murder

(Image Link)

People go to Yellowstone National Park for many different reasons, but it's safe to say murder isn't one of them.

But as it turns out there's a 50 square mile section of Yellowstone where the jurisdictional boundaries grow a bit blurry, a place where people could conceivably get away with murder.

Like all national parks, Yellowstone is federal land. Portions of it fall in Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming, but Congress placed the entire park in Wyoming's federal district. It's the only federal court district in the country that crosses state lines.

(Image via Annie Vainshtein)

This is purely theoretical, of course, and when Michigan State University law professor Brian Kalt proposed the concept in his 14-page article "The Perfect Crime" he feared someone might test his theory:

Kalt knew that Article III of the Constitution requires federal criminal trials to be held in the state in which the crime was committed. And the Sixth Amendment entitles a federal criminal defendant to a trial by jurors living in the state and district where the crime was committed. But if someone committed a crime in the uninhabited Idaho portion of Yellowstone, Kalt surmised, it would be impossible to form a jury. And being federal land, the state would have no jurisdiction. Here was a clear constitutional provision enabling criminal immunity in 50 square miles of America's oldest national park.

So he immediately sent a copy to the Department of Justice, the U.S. Attorney in Wyoming, and the House and Senate judiciary committees, and you know what they did?

They told Brian they'd wait and see if the issue ever came up, and according to Idaho senator Jim Risch "This is all very romantic and a great fictional thing," he said, "but I'm telling you, the states have jurisdiction." Except this statute seems to state otherwise...

Tattoo Cover-Ups

So you got a tattoo, and it isn’t right. The artist wasn’t as good as you thought they were, you changed your mind about the design, or it started to fade over time. You could get expensive and painful laser treatments, or you could find a much better tattoo artist and do a cover-up design. Buzzfeed asked readers to submit pictures of their regrettable tattoos and the cover-ups. Some are just plain awesome. The tattoo shown here has an intermediate image that shows where the old one is under the cover-up, but many other original tats are impossible to find in the “after” pictures. See 24 “before and after” pictures of tattoo cover-ups.

Sonic the Hedgedog Makes Up for Slow Speed With Total Cuteness

(Video Link)

Sonice the Hedgehog is an animal hero, saving poor bunnies and birdies from being turned into evil robotic creatures by the terrible Dr. Robotnik.

(Video Link)

He's such a hero to animals that he even has his own puppy sidekick, Sonic the Hedgedog. Unfortunately, this bulldog isn't quite as fast as his hedgehog friend, so sometimes he falls prey to Robotnik's evil tricks.

(Video Link)

Sometimes some of Sonic's friend's show up to help him fight too.

(Video Link)

In the end though, Sonic the Hedgedog is actually just a strange mutation of the original Sonic the Hedgehog. Who would have seen that one coming?

Hunting Season - Beware Of Wild Yautja


Hunting Season by Crumblin' Cookie

The Predator Activity Monitoring Committee is now taking a proactive stand against aliens who choose to hunt for prey on planet Earth, and they've started their campaign against interstellar evil by putting up a bunch of signs. This might not seem like the most effective response to a bunch of bloodthirsty aliens invading our planet, but you'd be surprised how many people respond to a sign like this and stay away from the area where it's posted altogether. Of course, those who can't read might be in a bit of trouble...

Take the danger with you wherever you go with this Hunting Season t-shirt by Crumblin' Cookie, and help warn your fellow humans about predatory aliens.

The Top 8 Tastiest Mascots

Forget trojans, lions, or bulldogs. Nothing’s more intimidating than a mascot capable of giving you food poisoning.

1. FIGHTING PICKLE

When the University of North carolina School of the Arts needed a name for its 1972 intramural team, they honored pickles. The school still lacks an athletic program. Or as Chancellor JohnMauceri said in 2012, "The fighting pickles are peerless and remain undefeated."

2. FIGHTING OKRA

(YouTube link)

Delta State University’s official team name is the “Statesmen,” but when students realized that a politician didn’t stir fear in opponents, they chose vegetable meanus, “a large, prickly, bipedal vegetable with an inherently bad temperament.”

Why A Tesla Is Better Than An Edison

It looks like it was a good thing Tesla Motors chose Nikola Tesla as their figurehead instead of Thomas Edison, because it would be mighty hard to sell families on an electric car that fries elephants.

But, as this comic by Wooden Plank Studios shows, the Edison would be perfect for drivers who are going through a particularly destructive and nihilistic mid-life crisis!

400 Years of Equator Hazings

The subject of crossing the equator came up in a discussion of the Rio Olympics, and we all slightly recalled that you had to go through some kind of ritual, but no one could recall what they heard it was. We figured it varied by the organization you were with. Ben Marks went through that experience recently on a French research vessel and lived to tell about it. Then he did more research on such rituals, which are really a form of hazing. Marks talked to Dr. Simon Bronner of Penn State University, author of Crossing the Line: Violence, Play, and Drama in Naval Equator Traditions.

“Well, I can give you a manifest reason and a latent reason for the practice,” Bronner begins, referring to the obvious and subconscious justifications for the tradition. “The manifest reason is around the idea that the equator itself is some kind of a liminal twilight zone, if you will, because its latitude is 0, 0, 0. There is a certain religio-magical connotation to the equator, so the ceremony is a way to indicate that one is traveling not only through space but also time, through some kind of a liminal reversal zone.”

For the record, Pascal never mentioned anything about liminal reversal zones when he was binding my wrists, smashing raw eggs on my head and face, or offering me a sip of water after I’d been standing in the sun for an hour, only to find out that it was seawater. After I realized what I was about to swallow, I spat the stuff in his face, which elicited from Pascal a loud, staccato laugh, and earned me another wink.

“Latently,” Bronner continues, “there is a lot of tension when you’re on a ship because you’re in this master-servant role. On a ship, the idea of discipline and obedience is much more emphasized than in other branches of the armed forces because a ship is a danger zone—discipline and obedience can save lives. So, I think the ceremony is partly a release from all that. Often the officers who are crossing the equator for the first time are treated the harshest. But there is a sense among the participants that there is license to do many of the ceremony’s activities within the framework of play that you couldn’t do anywhere else. The activities serve as an equalizer and ice breaker, especially in institutions, organizations, or groups whose members are strangers to one another.”

Collectors Weekly has a history of equator crossing rituals, and a blow-by-blow description of Marks’ two-hour ordeal -with pictures.

Hilarious Photo Fails Taken At Disney Parks

(Image Link)

Visitors are understandably disappointed when they make the trip to the Magic Kingdom in Anaheim or Orlando and end up having a crappy day, but a theme park trip shouldn't be ruined by a bad photo alone.

(Image Link)

In fact, most “bad” theme park photos make better memories down the line, and even if you can't appreciate the humor of the situation at the time you'll definitely laugh about it when you look back on that day.

People really need to think before buying a sweatshirt!!! #disneylandfail @futuremrslum saw this and thought of you!!!

A photo posted by Jeanine Militello (@jeaninemilitello) on May 26, 2014 at 8:05pm PDT

And once you're able to map out your laughing place and smile about all the things that go right and wrong during your Disney Parks outing you'll look forward to your next trip.

John Lennon’s First Acid Trip

In the spring of 1965, dentist John Riley slipped LSD into after dinner tea for John Lennon, George Harrison, and their wives Cynthia and Patti. John Lennon later recalled the experience in a radio interview, which became the narration for this animation.



(video link)

Rolling Stone has some thoughts from the others who were present, and the story of what happened afterward. John and George introduced LSD to Ringo that summer, but Paul resisted until the next year. That fact created some problems in the group as they worked on their next album, Revolver. -via Uproxx

Seven Of The Crappiest Monsters In Horror Movie History

A great movie monster will quickly become a favorite among horror movie fans, but a cheesy, low budget wreck of a monster will become a legend, for entirely diffent reasons, of course.

Jason embodies the spirit of a serial killer, Freddy Krueger creatively kills people in their dreams, and Leatherface wears a skin mask, wields a chainsaw and comes from a crazy cannibal family.

It's easy to see their appeal as movie monsters, but how the hell is a haunted spa or demonic refrigerator going to track their victims down, much less terrify an audience?

Stray cats are only scary to the young and the elderly, a disembodied hand is only scary if you can't find a bag to toss it in, and flesh eating slugs are only scary if you don't have any salt in your house.

But I will admit there's one entry on Cracked's The 7 Most Half-Assed Monsters In Movie History that sent chills down my spine- the Wereturkey in Blood Freak.

Now that beaky bastard will haunt your dreams, especially around Thanksgiving...

The Best 100 Films of the 21st Century

It might seem a little premature to be ranking the films of the century, but there’s nothing wrong with ranking the films of the past 16 years. A list at BBC Culture used the input of 177 movie critics from 36 countries. Yes, they included movies from 2000, although some will argue whether that year is in the 21st century. At the top of the list:

10. No Country for Old Men (Joel and Ethan Coen, 2007)
9. A Separation (Asghar Farhadi, 2011)
8. Yi Yi: A One and a Two (Edward Yang, 2000)
7. The Tree of Life (Terrence Malick, 2011)
6. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (Michel Gondry, 2004)
5. Boyhood (Richard Linklater, 2014)
4. Spirited Away (Hayao Miyazaki, 2001)
3. There Will Be Blood (Paul Thomas Anderson, 2007)
2. In the Mood for Love (Wong Kar-wai, 2000)
1. Mulholland Drive (David Lynch, 2001)

Check out the entire list of 100 movies and how the list was compiled at BBC Culture. If you’re like me, you might want to save the list for future use when you have time on a weekend, or for when you retire.

Grandma Shooing Away Cat Becomes Star Of Photoshop Battle

(Image via cynicalprickk)

Photoshop battles begin with a wide range of source images, from those that look like they were made to be 'shopped to those which require a bit of abstract thinking to make work.

(Image via nvaus)

In the case of “grandma shooing a cat” the image can go both ways, because it's easy enough to cut her and the cat out, but hard to place in the proper environment.

(Image via QuinineGlow)

We know the old gal is tough and scrappy, so it's easy to imagine her throwing down with "The Greatest"

(Image via TheBlazingPhoenix)

But her pose, and the way she wields that branch like a foil, makes me think grandma may have a background in fencing.

20 Things You Didn’t Know about Betty White

Depending on your age, you might recall Betty White from The Mary Tyler Moore Show, The Golden Girls, or Hot in Cleveland. However, the 94-year-old actress had a long list of television credits before any of those shows. She was cast in an experimental TV show in 1939! Yes, there was television back then, although very few people had receivers before the postwar boom. Over the years, Betty White has been involved in talk shows, game shows, and dramas that made her a fan favorite and brought her seven Emmy Awards. Let’s learn more about Betty White.  

1. She has a Guinness World Record

In 2014, when the record keeping show was being auditioned, Betty White received a title for the Longest TV Career for a Female Entertainer. The record showed seventy four years+ in show biz. The year before, the title for the Longest TV Career for a Male Entertainer had been given to Bruce Forsyth, who’d been a long time British Television host. Since the two both started their careers in ’39, they would be competing for the same title, were it not for the gender disparity.

12. She is not a big fan of reality TV

Betty White has made it clear that she does not like reality TV. Although she has not clarified why, most people assume it’s her history in creating and writing conflicts with how random people with virtually no talent gain fame by simply recording their lives and frequently acting like morons. Surprisingly, Betty White hosts a kind of reality television show known as Betty White’s Off Their Rockers in which old people play pranks on young guys.

There’s a lot more about Betty White to learn at Money Inc.

Guy Makes An Axe Handle Out Of Gummy Bears

Gummy candy lovers can't get enough of those rubbery little treats, their vibrant colors and whimsical shapes enough to brighten up even the greyest day.

Unfortunately, we can't gobble up gummies all day long or we may become diabetic, so the best way to surround ourselves with gummy candy is to make stuff out of gummy candy.

So manly man and maker Peter Brown was asked by his Twitter followers to combine the most fun form of candy with totally macho functionality and make an axe handle out of gummy bears.

Peter made a mold from his "original" axe handle, stuffed five pounds of gummy bears in the cavity of the mold then used a clear resin to cast a durable yet delicious looking axe handle for hungry hewers.

Whatever Happened to Pay Toilets?

Neatorama presents a guest post from actor, comedian, and voiceover artist Eddie Deezen. Visit Eddie at his website or at Facebook.

(Image credit: Flickr user Michelle Kinsey Bruns)

Going to the bathroom might be the one and only activity in America that's cheaper than it used to be. Pay toilets used to be the rule in airports and bus and train stations, and one would often encounter them in gas stations and restaurants.

The earliest pay toilets in history were erected in ancient Rome in 74 AD, during the rule of Vespasian, after a civil war greatly effected the Roman financial scene. His initiative was derided by his opponents, but his reply to them became famous: "Pecunia non olet," i.e. "money does not smell.”

Okay, here's your "question of the day" folks: “Who had the first pay toilets in North America installed?" The first pay toilets in North America were installed by Walt Disney. Walt disney? The cartoon guy? The Mickey Mouse guy? In 1935, Walt opened “Walt’s,” a popular cafe on Hollywood Boulevard, and the first restaurant ever run by an animation studio. In 1936, Walt's became the first establishment in North America to install pay toilets.

Pay toilets spread across America and were soon common sights in almost all the major cities.

Detroit: The New City of American Horror

In the past few years, filmmakers have set up shop in Detroit to film horror flicks. Where else can you find huge empty buildings, run-down homes you can buy for a pittance, and overgrown fields? Justine Smith looks at how several movies used and treated the city in scary movies: Lost River, Don’t Breathe, It Follows, and Only Lovers Left Alive. The influx of business has to be good for the city, but its image may suffer from being portrayed as a continually terrifying place. -via The A.V. Club
