Isolated Treehouse Hotel Lets You Sleep Under The Northern Lights

Treehotel in Sweden has just launched its 7th room, which they call the 7th Room. The luxury suite is a 600 square foot living space (two bedrooms, one bath, and a common area) perched 33 feet up in a clump of trees! It has plenty of outdoor deck space and it is enclosed by glass to allow for spectacular views of Swedish Lapland. The suite is open for rental beginning today, although it is probably booked up for a while. Dtaying there would be a once-in-a-lifetime experience. See a collection of gorgeous photographs of the 7th Room at Uncoached.

People Are Knitting Sweaters to Help Rescued Elephants

Elephants may be jumbo-sized, but they're still quite emotionally sensitive. So the elephants rescued from abuse who live at the Wildlife SOS Elephant Conservation and Care Center rely on the compassion and love of their caretakers. 

Unfortuantely, as much as the voluteers at the center love their charges, they can't hug their whole bodies all day long to keep them warm during a surprising cold spell in India. So instead, the volunteers are working to knit the elephants jumbo-sized sweaters to keep them cozy and warm during the freezing winter weather.

Each sweater takes about four weeks to make, but that's a small price to pay when it means keeping rescued elephants happy and healthy.

Girl Posted Sexy Selfie To Show Off Her Dress, But The Internet Saw So Much More

People post sexy selfies online hoping they'll get the attention and likes they need to bolster their self esteem, and because the poser is the focus of the selfie they often forget to check what's behind them in the shot.

When Alyssa posted the sexy selfie above she was hoping people would tell her how pretty she looked in her fancy dress, but she hadn't considered how much her dirty bedroom would distract from the dress.

Soon Alyssa's Tweet went viral as people played their own version of I Spy with her selfie, analyzing the stuff littering her filthy floor and discovering marshmallows are an essential part of her diet.

Unfortunately, the marshmallows were also feeding an uninvited houseguest who had seen the mess and assumed Alyssa's room was a rat friendly hotel.

Why The Three Laws of Robotics Have to be Arranged the Way They Are

Isaac Asimov's three rules of robotics are at the core of all of his robot stories and fans of not only his works, but countless other authors who have touched on a future filled with robots are familiar with the results. But simply re-arranging the order of the stories makes for an entirely different set of scenarios -most of which are terrible. XKCD explores these other outcomes in this simple-but-effective comic.

We're Not Worthy of This Giant Grilled Cheese Sandwich

The problem with grilled cheese is that it limits you to the size of the bread and sure there are some relatively large sour doughs out there, but a classic grilled cheese is all about the white bread. Of course, if you make your own bread then the size is the limit.

(Video Link)

The geniuses over at HellthyJunkFood did precisely that and the finished project, which took 20 slices of cheese to finish, is a true 3,650 calorie, comfort food masterpiece. 

You can find the recipe here.

Mother Shares Daily Pics Of Her Skin Cancer Treatment To Warn Against Tanning

Everybody knows the skin cancer risks associated with tanning in the sun or in a tanning bed, and yet people who can't stand being pale are willing to take that risk so their skin stays nicely bronzed.

These people also tend to believe tanning beds are safer than tanning in the sun, so they hit the UV beds and tan without applying sunscreen thinking they'll be fine. 

Well, Margaret Murphy from Dublin, Ireland wants these people to know that skin cancer is not a joke, so she's sharing pictures of her face while receiving daily treatments to remove pre-cancerous cells to send a message.

Margaret says she started tanning while living in Crete for a decade, and continued to use tanning beds when she returned home to Dublin, which resulted in the development of Actinic Keratosis on her face.

Now she's undergoing an Efudix treatment, which burns the pre-cancerous cells off her face, and sharing the pain on her Facebook page Mag's Murphys Journey, so people will learn from her mistake and use a high factor sunscreen.

The Salmon Mousse - Darling, You Didn't Use Canned Salmon


The Salmon Mousse by Stationjack

Souls who have left their physical bodies should feel lucky to still have any experiences at all, since many of them are stuck in the pitch black limbo of their own post-mortem minds. But some souls have yet to realize they're actually dead, so they sit there arguing with Death like a silly person until the surety of their demise finally sinks in. This is one of the reasons why humans can't seem to figure out the meaning of life, because they're about as familiar with the feeling of being alive as a python is with the feeling of having arms!

Add a cold, bony touch of classic comedy to your geeky wardrobe with this The Salmon Mousse t-shirt by Stationjack, it's the perfect way to show love for the Monty Python crew without slapping people in the face with a fish!

Visit Stationjack's Facebook fan page, official website, Twitter, Instagram and Tumblr, then head on over to his NeatoShop for more delightfully geeky designs:

This Bad-Haired Moth With a Weird Penis Was Just Named After Donald Trump

Just in time for the inauguration, scientists have named the first ever animal after Donald Trump. A few species were named after Obama during his term and now it's Trump's turn. Of course, there is always a reason behind naming a new species after someone and in this case, it's the moth's strange, scaly forehead that bears resemblance to its namesake's yellow helmet of hair. The moth also has a strangely curved penis, but there's no word on if that went into the naming decision or not. 

Those who wish to see the N. donaldtrumpi in person will have to visit California or Baja Mexico, where they are presumably scoping out land to build a great wall.

A Wish To Be Really, Really Hot

Why are people so concerned with physical perfection?

The traits that constitute a "perfect 10" are a matter of opinion, and therefore someone probably already thinks you're a "10" and you don't even know it!

So if a genie ever grants you a wish take it from this comic by The Pigeon Gazette and don't waste it on matters of physical beauty, because people won't like you if your beauty melts their face off!

A Chillingly Awesome Serving Suggestion

You don't really need a spoon for a shot glass in most cases, but when the spoon and shot glass compliment each other as well as this crawling hand glass and bone spoon do, practicality certainly gives way to aesthetics. 

The creations, by artist CTCordingly, come in a multitude of colors and are 3D printed in porcelain. They're perfect for any creepy party, especially a creepy dinner party with a tasting menu that includes a soup course (since it's the perfect excuse for a tiny amount of liquid that still requires a spoon).

So check out the glasses and spoons here.

Disney Pixar Confirms All Of Their Films Exist In The Same Universe

They teased at the truth with Easter eggs and crossover clues in most of their movies, fans collected all the easter eggs and formed a unified world theory, and now Pixar has finally confirmed it- all of their movies exist in the same universe. 

It's one of those announcements that make you say "yeah, I figured as much", and yet it's nice to hear it straight from the studio's mouth since most creators won't admit when their projects are all interconnected.

Of course, Disney Pixar didn't just come out and admit the same universe connection- they posted this video on the official Toy Story Facebook page with the caption "Oh my spurs! You ain't never seen Easter eggs like these, partner". 

(YouTube Link)

Now the hunt for Pixar Easter eggs will never end!

My Name is Cow

A couple of months ago, a reddit thread asked for stories about health inspection violations. Chamale posted a lovely story about an inspection at a historical recreation.

My stepdad used to be a baker in an authentic recreation of an 18th century New French fortress. Because they sell bread to the public, the health inspector came by, and she was ripping into my stepdad for violations like the stonework walls, the doorless entranceways, or the lack of a mosquito zapper. He pointed out that they were following the highest standards except for things that would destroy the authenticity of this 18th-century bakery. The health inspector relented and agreed to give him a pass after verifying the food storage area was secure. They went to the shed, which was a doorless building attached to the bakery. As the health inspector went in, there happened to be an escaped cow licking all of the loaves. My stepdad could only say, "Honestly, this never happens." They passed the health inspection.

In response, redditor Poem_for_your_sprog (Sam Garland) wrote an amazing poem.

my name is Cow,
and wen its nite,
or wen the moon
is shiyning brite,
and all the men
haf gon to bed -
i stay up late.

i lik the bred.

That started a meme that spread way beyond reddit, as others contributed poems recited by the dog, the cat, the calf (with a reply from the cat), the goat, the bread, and more from the cow. And more here and here. So when you run into more poems of the same type, you'll know where they came from.

The Top Five Garlic Tips, Tested

Garlic is the king of all flavoring agents and condiments in many kitchens, and although garlic is nearly impossible to work into sweet recipes it works well in damn near every savory recipe ever created.  

But many people avoid using fresh garlic because it's a pain to peel, too sticky and stinky to chop or crush, and hard to properly roast, and their dishes are left devoid of that great garlic flavor.

Luckily, there are simple solutions to all of these garlic problems- microwaving garlic cloves for about fifteen seconds will make peeling a snap, or you can just seal the cloves in a jar and shake vigorously until the skin falls away. 

Roasted garlic is a delicious addition to salads, guacamole and other dips, or when spread on a piece of toast, but the roasting process can take about an hour which may be too long when you're making dinner. 

So rather than waiting around for an hour throw the unpeeled garlic cloves in a cast iron skillet over medium heat, turning occasionally until they're cooked evenly on all sides.

Explaining Movies to a Five Year Old

How would you explain your favorite grown up film to a five year old? That's exactly the premise of a recent Twitter hashtag and the results are hilarious. From Inception to The Breakfast Club, the simplified, chilld-friendly descriptions are brilliant:

The best ones even seem to be the most extreme ones:

Chicken and Waffle Donut Holes

Chicken and waffles are the marriage of two perfect foods, but eating the two together in one big bite requires the use of those pesky old utensils. Now Oh Bite It has come up with a fantastic and dippable one-handed version that combines chicken and waffles with good old fashioned fried donut holes. Essentially they are simply waffle batter stuffed with chicken pieces and deep fried, but the combination of these meant-to-be foods is just too perfect to be ignored. Whether you dip them in hot sauce or syrup is up to you.

A Really Cool Collection Of Wintry Cosplay Photos

(Winter Wonderland Lulu cosplay by Nimdra)

Cosplayers already look cool when they're strutting around in costume, except for those rare awkward moments when their costumes clash with their surroundings, but posing for cosplay photos in the snow is the coolest!

But cosplaying in the snow requires a different kind of commitment than Con cosplay, and those cosplayers who decide to pose for a themed shoot in the winter know they have to go big.

For example- you can't ride a horse into a convention (Ellie from The Last Of Us cosplay by EndureSurvivor)

And a horse can complete a cosplay like no prop ever could (Ellie from The Last Of Us cosplay by EndureSurvivor)

Con cosplay also limits your use of props, because nobody wants to carry around a giant, and often fragile, prop all day while they navigate through a sea of bodies (Winter Wonderland Orianna from League Of Legends by Lulu Cosplay)

And Cons don't properly capture the feeling of the winter holiday season like a trip to a mall all decked out for Christmas, where the decor makes cosplay photos that much more magical (Winter cosplay gathering by ourlivinglegacy)

I Would Walk 500 Miles - A Commitment To Catching 'Em All


I Would Walk 500 Miles by Rocky Davies

Ash didn't listen to music much while he was out huning for pocket monsters, because he needed to see as well as hear in order to track them down, but one song had earwormed into his head and wouldn't let go. It was from a Scottish band called The Proclaimers, who sang a catchy song about walking 500 miles to be back with the one they loved. This song really struck a chord with Ash, and so he started playing it over and over again while he explored regions with his pal Pika. Then came the day when the song became all too relevant to his own life, as Team Rocket had kidnapped poor Pikachu and were holding him approximately 500 miles away from Ash...

This I Would Walk 500 Miles t-shirt by Rocky Davies is music to your eyeballs, and it's sure to put that catchy song in people's heads wherever you go!

David Bowie's Jareth Costume Who Wore It Better: The Cat or the Dog?

Jareth the Goblin King from The Labyrinth is David Bowie's most memorable movie role. A year after his death, it seems only appropriate to see animals doing their best to celebrate his legendary role. But cats and dogs are always in competition, so now it's time to ask, who wore it better -kitty or doggy Jareth? Somehow cats just seem like a better David Bowie match...

but this dog's costume is just amazing. Plus, we've previously seen a dog naved David Bowie, but never one who wanted to be David Bowie.

Guy Buries His Shovel-Stealing Neighbor's Car In Snow

Neighbors who always borrow your tools and never bring them back is only funny in sitcoms, because in real life their borrowing forces you to go through an awkward moment to get it back.

Of course, it could be worse- your neighbor could just straight up steal the tool from your yard, and never give it back, which is why people end up installing security cameras. 

David Wells of Chicago had his shovel stolen by a sneaky neighbor who didn't know security cameras had caught her in the act, and when she didn't return the shovel he decided to get even- by burying her car in snow.

The Over Enthusiastic Gamer Does An Unboxing Video

The unboxing videos featured on YouTube are an acquired taste, which is a nice way of saying most of them are pretty much unwatchable unless you have an unboxing fetish or never get any presents.

And yet this annoying trend isn't going away anytime soon, so people like The Over Enthusiastic Gamer have begun making unboxing video parodies for those of us who like a little deadpan humor with their box content reveals.

(YouTube Link)

This video made me think "WTF did I just watch?" just like a real unboxing video!

Painful Places To Get Tattooed, Ranked From Least To Most Painful

Unless you're the kind of person who points at a random design on the tattoo parlor wall and says "gimme that one, anywhere you want" you probably spent time deciding what to get and where to get it before getting inked.

After all, tattoos are a lifetime commitment, so it makes sense to plot out your new body art before you go into the parlor, and yet people never seem to consider how painful the process is going to be. 

It won't hurt too bad if you get a tattoo on your bicep or forearm, but tattoo your wrist, hands or feet and you'll feel excruciating pain and an ache in your bones.

Even though the inner thigh is fleshier than your hands or feet getting tattooed there tends to hurt more, but that pain is nothing compared to getting a tattoo on the back of your knees or in your armpit.

But the two most painful places to get tattooed are also the most horrifying- the eyes or eyelids and the genitals, aka the last places you should let people go near when they're holding sharp objects!

An Honest Trailer for Space Jam

Space Jam is a movie about neither space nor jam that combined Warner Brothers cartoon characters with the NBA stars of the '90s, so it was destined to become a classic among a certain age group. That cohort holds the 1996 film on a sacred pedestal. But here comes Screen Junkies to take it down a notch with an Honest Trailer.

There's plenty to mock here, and this Honest Trailer makes it clear that to love Space Jam, you pretty much had to be there. If you were, it was perfect. -via Uproxx

"America the Beautiful" in Every National Park

Conor Knighton is a correspondent for CBS Sunday Morning. During the course of 2016, he visited all 59 U.S. national parks in celebration of the 100th anniversary of the National Park Service. At every park, he stopped and recorded himself singing “America The Beautiful,” and made this compilation video in which you can get a glimpse of them.

In this segment from the show, he tells us about his tour. You might want to enlarge this one, because the scenery is lovely.

This Cat's Post-Rescue Transformation is Amazing

Sinbad the cat is a Persian kitty that belonged to an elderly man in Chicago. Unfortunately, as her owner got older, his mental health declined and the kitty's thick, long hair started matting as he neglected to brush her. When a city worker came to do some repairs and maintenance on the man's home, he noticed the cat's poor condition and called the The Anti-Cruelty Society, who sent an investigation team to check on the kitty. When the team arrived, they asked the man if he would be willing to give up Sinbad and he agreed. 

At the shelter, vets bathed the cat and gave him two rounds of hair cuts -shedding over five pounds of hair from the cat. After he started to look better, shelter employee Elliot Serrano took Sinbad home over the holidays and ended up falling in love with the recovered and loving kitty. Serrano has since adopted Sinbad and the recovering cat is happy to live in a happy home.

You can keep up with Sinbad's exploits on his Facebook and Instagram.

Save The Galaxy - Do Real Trees Dance?


Save the Galaxy by Vincent Trinidad 

Rocket may not seem like an ecological type of guy, but it makes sense when you consider he is a raccoon and once lived in the forest like a savage beast. And he's also best friends with a tree man named Groot, so that tends to make him a bit more ecologically minded too. But mostly it's the fact that female mammals love an eco-friendly dude that makes Rocket want to tell everyone he meets to go green, plant a tree and help save the galaxy!

Become an eco-guardian on your planet with this Save The Galaxy t-shirt by Vincent Trinidad, it's the fun way to spread ecological awareness and show love for your favorite far out superhero squad at the same time!
