Deadly Florida

Good thing it’s pretty in the Sunshine State. At least the view will be nice as you try to outrun all of these dangerous things.

AFRAID OF LIGHTNING?

Then don’t go to Florida. A study conducted from 2004 to 2007 by the American Meteorological Society found that people are more likely to get struck by lightning in Florida than anywhere else in North America. The state averages 35 lightning injuries and seven fatalities per year, and “Lightning Alley,” a hot spot that spans central Florida from Tampa to Titusville, receives an average of 50 strikes per square mile per year. And right in the middle of Lightning Alley: Disney World. Even with lightning rods strategically placed throughout the park, a quick-moving storm in 2003 caught animal handlers by surprise at Disney’s Kilimanjaro Safaris attraction. Before they could move the animals to safety, a lightning bolt killed a 12-foot-tall giraffe named Betsy. Also located in Lightning Alley: Universal Studios, SeaWorld, Daytona Beach, and NASA’s Kennedy Space Center, where they launch spaceships.

The Walking Dead in Classic Movie Posters

This Sunday night will be the premiere of The Walking Dead season eight. It will also be the series' 100th episode. To celebrate (and promote) that milestone, producer, director, and effects guy Greg Nicotero teamed up with Michael Broom and John Wheaton to produce a series of The Walking Dead posters in the styles of posters you recall from classic movies.

"We had a really, really good time. I thought it was a great opportunity to celebrate that we've done 100 episodes, by looking at other classic titles and skewing them toward the world of The Walking Dead," he says of the series. "I found an opportunity to celebrate what I love about the show and what I know fans love about the show, too: the community of people who embrace the pop culture aspect of filmmaking and movies. I can't get enough of it. Being a collector of movie posters and props and things like that, it was just another opportunity to live vicariously through these movie posters that I love so much."

There are 17 posters in the series. You can see them all at the Hollywood Reporter. -via io9

Photographer Shoots The Same People Going To Work Over 9 Year Period

Work in the same area for years and you're bound to see the same faces during your daily commute, especially if you work a 9 to 5 job in a big city.

And even though you may exchange little more than a nod and a "good morning" with these people their faces become very familiar, almost more familiar than your friends and family because you see your fellow workers every day.

Danish photographer Peter Funch visited the corner of 42nd Street and Vanderbilt in NYC between the hours of 8:30 and 9:30 a.m. on weekdays from 2007 to 2016 and noticed one consistent thing- the same people going to work.

Some of these 9 to 5ers were so consistent they actually wore the same outfits, sported the same hair style and walked with the same people over the 9 year period, becoming the symbols of unwavering consistency in the workplace.

A Catfishing Story With a Happy Ending

Emma Perrier was a 34-year-old French woman living in London who had just broken up with a boyfriend. She went online to meet someone new, and she did. She connected with an Italian man living in England named Ronaldo “Ronnie” Scicluna. Above you see their profile pics. But Ronnie was actually 53-year-old Alan Stanley, who didn't really want to date, but liked meeting women online. His dating profile, and the things he told Perrier, were a complete fraud. Of course, she eventually found out, since he never wanted to meet in real life, even though he didn't live that far away. But who was the man in the profile picture? Perrier used a reverse image search.

“Believe me I was scared to use it for the first time,” Emma said. She uploaded the photograph of Ronnie wearing his leather jacket. The results arrived in seconds: The man in the photographs was a model and actor from Turkey, called Adem Guzel. Emma was confused. She found his model-management website, an official Twitter account, and his Facebook. Adem’s closest connection to the United Kingdom was that he had studied at the Gaiety School of Acting in the nearby Republic of Ireland.

Perrier sent a message to Guzel, warning him that a man was using his publicity shots in a catfishing scheme. Guzel, who was then 35 and managing a hotel after a TV gig fell apart, returned her message. And that's where the story really takes off. The two are now living together in London. You can read the entire story at the Atlantic. -via Uproxx

Garfield Creator Jim Davis Drew A Galactus Story For A New Marvel Comic

Marvel's giant intergalactic planet muncher Galactus and Jim Davis' lasagna lovin' cat Garfield have a lot in common despite the fact that they exist in radically different cartoon universes with different levels of detail.

They both think with their stomachs and let their appetites get them in trouble, they can both be a bit surly if you wake them up before noon, and now they've both been drawn by Jim Davis thanks to an upcoming Marvel comic written by Ryan North:

Issue #26 of Unbeatable Squirrel Girl will be styled as a zine made by Squirrel Girl and her super-powered peers, with different artists providing styles for different heroes-turned-artists. The roster includes none other than Garfield creator Jim Davis, who illustrated a story from the perspective of Galactus.

North wrote the story, which Davis illustrated with the help of his assistants Gary Barker and Dan Davis. The strip basically uses Galactus as a stand-in for Garfield, and his herald the Silver Surfer as a stand-in for Jon Arbuckle.

Here's a sneak peek of Jim Davis' Galactus story, Unbeatable Squirrel Girl #26 hits stores November 8th:

Bad Luck

I've never thought of black cats as omens of bad luck because I grew up in a household that valued the life of all kitties, and people for that matter, regardless of fur or skin color.

Plus I've owned a few black cats over the years, and the way I see it they can't bring bad luck to their owners or else witches and warlocks wouldn't keep them around.

But, as this War And Peas comic shows, the superstition may have originated when the first person who thought such a dumb thing pointed at a black cat and yelled "bad luck!" That really pisses cats off...

The Year of the Witch

The Salem Witch Trials get all the publicity, but it was far from the only witch panic that invaded colonial America. In Hartford, Connecticut, witch hysteria gripped the community in 1662 and 1663, so much that it came to be known as "The Year of the Witch." It all started with the death of eight-year-old Elizabeth Kelly, who died of an unknown ailment. Suspicion instantly led to Judith Ayres, who nobody liked anyway. She was arrested for witchcraft, and for good measure, they arrested her husband, too.

Judith and William were subjected to that indispensable part of any good witch trial: the "water test." The couple were bound hand to foot and tossed into a pond. If they floated, that was proof positive they were witches. If they sank, well, at least Judith and William would have the satisfaction of knowing that they would die vindicated.

To no one's real surprise, the pair floated like a pair of corks. A ghastly death at the gallows awaited them.

Luckily for the Ayerses, there were a few people in town who had not come down with the prevailing hysteria. These supporters managed to arrange a jailbreak, and the couple fled to Rhode Island, leaving behind their two sons, ages five and eight. One wonders what sort of lives those boys went on to have.

Unfortunately, the departure of Judith and William did not signal the end of the Hartford witch panic. In truth, it was just getting started.

The young girls of Hartford started talking about witchcraft, and accusing others of the practice. One suspect named an entire coven, including her own husband. Read the account of the Year of the Witch at Strange Company.

Kitty Witches - Which Kitty Is A Witch Kitty?


Kitty Witches by Hillary White

What is with witches and their kitties? The two seem to go together like mugwort and toad sweat, and for some reason their cats are perpetually pissed off even though the witch just keeps on cacklin'. It's like witches are a version of the classic crazy cat lady, only they just need one psychotic black cat instead of a meowing menagerie. Their cats are probably also keeping witches from hooking up with warlocks, because as we all know warlocks are weird bird guys and they treat their feathered familiars like their babies, and cats can't resist the taste of a fresh familiar...

Dress up all super scary for the Halloween times with this Kitty Witches t-shirt by Hillary White, it will either make people cackle at you like witches or meow at you like a cat, both of which are very awkward!

Visit Hillary White's Facebook fan page, official website and Tumblr, then head on over to her NeatoShop for more meow-gical designs:

Classic Hanna-Barbera Cartoon Sound Effects

Watch any of the old Hanna-Barbera cartoons with the sound turned off and those wacky shows will be far less entertaining, and not just because the characters seem extra flat without their dialog and catchphrases.

No, the main thing you'll be missing are those zany sound effects, the sound of animated hilarity that takes you back to those formative years when cartoons became a big part of your life, or maybe it's just me.

Former Hanna-Barbera sound editor Paul Douglas made some interesting picks for his top 10 sound effects list, like Muttley biting Dick Dastardly on the butt and El Kabong's guitar hit, and these iconic sounds will take you back, way, way back.

(YouTube Link)

For some reason Paul's top ten sound effects list didn't include that iconic scrabbling sound Hanna-Barbera cartoons made whenever they ran, so here it is. I wish I could make noises like that when I run...

10 Things You Didn’t Know about Labyrinth

Does the 1986 film Labyrinth make you think of David Bowie or Jim Henson first? Henson directed the cast of humans and puppets, and Bowie played Jareth, the Goblin King who kidnaps the baby Toby while his sister Sarah is babysitting. The film was a financial flop when it was first released, but became a cult hit as further generations of children saw it on home video. Let's have some trivia from the making of Labyrinth.  

7. The only way that Toby could sit on Jareth’s lap was to have a sock puppet off screen for him to look at.

The kid just wouldn’t stop screaming when he was sitting on Bowie’s lap, but once Bowie had the puppet in his other hand he couldn’t look away.

6. There were a few different stars that wanted to play Jareth.

Michael Jackson and Mick Jagger were a couple, and Jim Henson was going to try to get sting before his kids convinced him to ask David Bowie.

Once Upon A Candle

You'd think candles would be hotheads on account of their wicks, or total drips on account of their melty nature, but according to this animated short entitled Once Upon A Candle they're actually happy-go-lucky to the bitter end.

But once they've lit up our lives for a while, and their tall taper has been reduced to a bumpy nub, the spark sorta goes out of their personality and that existential angst starts to set in.

Once Upon A Candle is another great animated short created by students from The Animation Workshop in Denmark, it won't melt your heart but it was illuminating!

Research Risks

The latest comic from Randall Munroe at xkcd is a graph, a scatter plot indicating the danger of research subjects. If you thought hard enough, you can come up with a movie or some kind of story for each one. I thought of Frankenstein and The Andromeda Strain for the upper right, Sharktopus and The Birds for the lower right, Doctor Octopus and various Bond villains for the upper left, and Darth Vader at the top. Attack of the Killer Tomatoes would be close to the middle. The further you go to the right, the more 1960s B-movies you'll find. Molasses storage? Well, there was that flood, but I don't know if they've ever made a movie about it. Too unbelievable.

This Awesome Gremlins Poster Contains 84 Hidden Pop Culture References

Gremlins is a visually striking film, with lots of fantastic and unforgettable scenes that continue to inspire filmmakers and artists like Kevin M. Wilson when they're looking to create an homage to (monster) movies.

Kevin chose the scene in Mr. Wing's shop (where Billy's dad Randall bought Gizmo) as inspiration for this illustration full of hidden movie references, which seems logical since the place was full of cool stuff to look at.

There are a 84 pop culture references hidden in this awesome artwork, from the fairly obvious Freddy Kreuger's Glove and ORCA Panel at the top of the piece to the harder to find Chucky doll to the tiny and impossible to find Demogorgon Miniature.

See if you can collect 'em all with your eyeballs, and when you give up click here to see the key.

Bullying Jr.

Burger King released a video about bullying. They staged a scene of high school students bullying a kid in the dining area, and the also "bullied" their Whopper Jr. burgers. That's the goofy part. They compare how many people complained about the burger to how many people stood up for the kid. As you can guess, more people were concerned about the burger. After all, they paid for that.  

(YouTube link)

It's the later part of the video that gets you, when people are shown intervening in the teenager's abuse. That might trigger you. You can say that sticking your nose into the situation won't help, and might even make the bullying worse at a different location. But a lot of folks in the reddit comments recalled being bullied as a child, and their clearest memories were of that one time someone stood up for them and let them know they weren't alone. The ad directs you to the No Bully site.

People Heaven is the Worst

You'd better hope that heaven doesn't make mistakes because if it does, this is the kind of thing that would ruin your eternity for, well, eternity. After all, being reconnected with your loved ones is great and all, but being connected with your deceased pets and getting to cuddle with puppies forever -now that sounds like actual heaven.

Roy G. Biv

(Image credit: Miss Cellania)

Roy G. Biv is a mnemonic used to remember the colors of the visible spectrum: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet. Let's learn something about all the colors.

THE TRUE RED BARON

How the Danish protest pig got its stripe.

(Image credit: Axel Krampe)

In the 19th century, Denmark and Germany went to war over a slice of the southern Jutland Peninsula (today called Schleswig-Holstein). Denmark claimed the land in 1848, but 16 years later, Germany regained the territory and promptly barred any Danes who lived there from raising their country’s flag. So, crafty Danish farmers started raising pigs. Through crossbreeding, they created a pig that resembled the Danish flag, featuring red fur and a prominent white belt. By the 20th century, the Protestschwein, or “protest pigs,” had become a snorting symbol of Danish cultural independence.

WHAT CAME FIRST: ORANGE THE FRUIT OR ORANGE THE COLOR?

The fruit! Medieval English speakers rarely encountered the color orange in nature- so they simply called the shade geoluhread (yellow-red). The fruit, imported from northern India to Europe in the 11th century, changed that. Called orenge by medieval Latin speakers, the fruit took over geoluhread’s place in English in the 1530s.

What Does the Hamburger Helper’s Skeleton Look Like?

The Hamburger Helper mascot is a disembodied hand, wearing a glove, with a face in its palm. It's ridiculous already, but trying to envision what kind of bone structure it has inside is even weirder. That's the question michael SCAREa‏ posed on Twitter. He got over 500 replies, including plenty of illustrations of the inside of a fictional advertising character.

Buddhist Monks with a Sense of Humor

While they may have given up certain earthly pleasures, like hair, these monks aren't above a bit of shenanigans when they need a bag to carry their stuff. Wouldn't you do the same in their position? Since the band Nirvana and the accompanying symbol were around before these monks were born, there's little chance that they aren't familiar with it. After all, Buddhists seek Nirvana. -via reddit

Wildlife Photographer of the Year Winners 2017

The National History Museum in London announced the winners of their annual Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition. The winner in the youth competition, the Young Wildlife Photographer of the Year, is Daniël Nelson of the Netherlands. The 16-year-old, who is a professional wildlife photographer, entered this portrait of nine-year old Caco the gorilla. Lewis Blackwell, Chair of the jury, said,

‘This is a lovely moment, combining careful and protracted observation of an animal in its habitat with an eye for compelling composition. Our eyes move through the image, from the face to the hand on the breadfruit and back again. The photo takes us right into the life of the young gorilla called Caco and makes us curious to understand his day. Images this good can help inspire and educate, and may perhaps help save this critically endangered species.’

The overall winner of the adult division is too graphic to show here. Brent Stirton of South Africa won for his photograph of a rhino that was a victim of poachers who took its horn. You can see it here. On a more lighthearted note, check out Marcio Cabral's photo of a Brazilian giant anteater. It won first place in the "Animals in their Environment" category.  

There are winners in several categories and age groups. You can see them all at the contest website, in the gallery of adult winners and youth winners. -via Digg

Truly Horrific Halloween Horror Stories That Happen To Be True

Telling spooky stories around a campfire (or flashlight if you're indoors) is a Halloween tradition that keeps the art of storytelling alive in an age when kids would rather stare at a screen than talk to each other.

And if you really want to shock the kids of today who have been exposed to all kinds of terrible stuff online you've gotta tell them a true story, one which they can verify via Google to make it extra shocking.

Start 'em off with the source of an urban legend about tainted Halloween candy:

In 1974, 8-year-old Timothy O’Bryan died on Halloween evening after eating candy laced with cyanide. But the story has an even more horrific twist.

It turned out the candy was poisoned by Timmy’s father, Ronald, who was in financial trouble and had taken out insurance policies on his children. In addition to Timmy, Ronald O’Bryan gave poisoned candy to four other children, including his daughter, Elizabeth. Thankfully, none of them ate it. O’Bryan was executed by lethal injection in 1984.

Then you can hit 'em with a tale about a suicide mistaken for a Halloween decoration:

In 2005, a 42-year-old woman in Delaware committed suicide by hanging herself from a tree across the street from a residential area. Though the body was easily visible to passersby and passing vehicles, no one called the police for hours. Why? They assumed the woman swaying in the wind was a Halloween decoration.

And once they're good and scared thanks to these two true stories you can introduce the idea of a killer-at-large who wears a Ghostface mask and make sure they never sleep again!:

In Scream, killers wearing Ghostface masks callously murdered the people in their town. Chillingly, on Halloween night, 2013, someone wearing the same Ghostface mask shot and killed 19-year-old Anthony Seaberry before disappearing into the New York night.

Searching for the Identity of San Francisco’s Mysterious Mummified Girl

We've read about how San Francisco city officials had all the city's dead moved to Colma in 1914 in order to reclaim the valuable land taken up by cemeteries. As methodical as they were, the project was massive, and mistakes were bound to be made. One was unearthed in May of 2016, when a construction crew dug up a small coffin under Ericka Karner's garage. The sealed coffin had two windows showing the corpse in good condition. There was no identifying information attached. The nonprofit Garden of Innocence organization built a new coffin and provided a burial for the child. But who was she? Her gravestone called her Miranda Eve.

That name was meant to be temporary, given to the dead girl by Karner’s own two young daughters, to be replaced when Miranda’s identity was finally discovered. See, before her second burial, researchers extracted DNA from the corpse, first to make sure that there was no foul play, then for clues.

The samples suggested Miranda had been weaned from breast milk a year before her death, putting her age between two and three-and-a-half years old when she died. They also hinted at a diet change that took place a few months before death, which suggested she died from a longer illness, not trauma. An analysis of her hair concluded she died of marasmus, or severe malnutrition, likely due to an infection.

Other information from the DNA, plus a painstaking search of city records finally yielded results. Read her story at Atlas Obscura.

29 Facts about European Royalty

These facts are bizarre -John Green said so- because royalty is weird. These folks spend their lives surrounded by fabulous wealth and have people taking care of their every need. Then some of them have to be a leader of a country, without understanding anything about the common people who make up the vast majority of the population. There are no job qualifications for royalty other than being born into it, but there are some weird rules for living your life that have nothing to do with governing.

The Animal Most Likely To Kill You In Each State

Whenever people discuss the deadliest animals in North America they mention rattlesnakes, bears and, if they're coastal, sharks, but nobody talks about the fact that deer kill more people each year than bears, snakes and sharks combined.

Deer-related deaths are presumably largely due to car accidents but the fact remains deer, and horses and cows for that matter, kill way more people each year than you'd expect.

These illustrated charts by Man Vs. Beast show us which critters kill the most people each year, as well as your odds of being killed by an animal and the most common animal-related death by state.

But these charts (inexplicably featured on a casino website) don't stop in the U.S., here's a chart that shows the world's deadliest regions and which critter is most likely to kill you in each region. Travel safe!

Guy Photoshops Himself Into Childhood Pics So He Can Hang Out With His Younger Self

Do you ever think about what you'd say to your younger self if you could travel back in time and have a chat with the kid version of you?

Montreal-based grown up photographer guy Conor Nickerson sure has, and he decided, if he could, that he didn't just want to chat with kid Conor- he wanted to hang out with the little guy.

Knowing this could possibly cause a time paradox and erase his timeline Conor chose to use the power of Photoshop instead of a time machine, so he can safely travel back in time to the years 1997-2005 and kick it with kid Conor.

Now Conor can say he was the coolest kid in town because he was best friends with a grown up who was the coolest dude in town, and both of them share the name Conor Nickerson.

Baby Hears Mommy for the First Time

Bloody And Mysterious Movie Posters Created For Dario Argento Films

The films of Italian director Dario Argento are hard to classify because they don't fit neatly into any one genre- on the one hand they're definitely full of horror elements, but films like Profondo Rosso (Deep Red) could be considered Crime Thrillers.

The Italians call this Horror-Thriller genre "giallo", and Argento's masterfully crafted giallo films are a cut above the rest because the mystery keeps you guessing until the bloody end while the realistic gore makes you squirm in your seat.

In fact, some of the posters created for Dario Argento films like Tenebre, Two Evil Eyes and Deep Red are so disturbingly bloody we can't show them here so here's a really cool artsy one instead, created by artist Matt Ryan for a UK screening of Suspiria.
