Interview With The Vampire

According to the myths and movies vampires cast no reflection in mirrors because they have no soul, making it easy to identify any bloodsuckers hanging around your house.

But this part of the vampire myth has always made me wonder- do vampires see a reflection when they look in the mirror, or do they see an empty frame like normal humans do?

That sucks for them if they can't see their reflection in the mirror because, as this Random Crab comic shows, vampires are hardcore pranksters so mirrors probably factor into a lot of their pranks.

Maybe that's why so many vampires carry parrots around on their shoulders...

The Well-Dressed Suffragist

A true capitalist can see the value in any political movement if there is enough money to be made from it. In 1911, women in England were working to achieve the right to vote. A large demonstration was planned for June 17, to coincide with the coronation of  George V, in which participants were urged to wear white in solidarity. That, of course, meant buying new clothing, and there was a mad scramble for customers who wished to vote.

Readers of the weekly newspaper, Votes for Women, which was edited by Frederick and Emmeline Pethick Lawrence, were urged to buy their outfits from firms that advertised there. ‘If they find it pays them to advertise in VOTES FOR WOMEN they will advertise – if they find it doesn’t, they won’t. The more money that flows into the coffers of our advertisement department the better our paper can be made, the wider its influence reaches. Therefore let every woman who believes in this cause never enter a shop that does not advertise in VOTES FOR WOMEN, and let her deal exclusively with those firms that do, and inform them why.’

Women who obeyed this call to arms would have had a good choice of items to ensure a suitably modish appearance during the procession. Advertisers enticed them with pictures of dresses, dainty blouses, charming hats, smart coats and hair care products. The procession through London from Westminster to the Albert Hall comprised around 60,000 women from around the world carrying 1,000 banners and stretched for seven miles. One hopes that they also bought the comfortable shoes on offer!

On the one hand, it helped the cause that so much purchasing power could be harnessed in the fight to change hearts and minds about the rights of women. On the other hand, third-wave (and even second-wave) feminists have to cringe at the image of women buying new corsets, wigs, and "charming" hats for a suffrage demonstration.

Go Forth And Conquer The Day With These Mighty Geeky NeatoShop T-Shirts

Pegacorn by Hillary White

Confidence is a state of mind, which is why all of the pop culture heroes we love exude confidence- because they're fictional people, so if their writers say they're badass heroes brimming with confidence then that's what they are.

In the real world confidence isn't so easily acquired, but a heroic wardrobe will make you feel more confident because if you look good you'll feel good, and no geeky shirt looks as good as a NeatoShop shirt- because our print quality is legendary!

Pop culture heroes show us that nerds are actually really cool

New Jersey Mallrats by Nemons

And they give goofballs enough confidence to let their freak flag fly

Spin Your Tales by RexelRetro

But overall they show us that bravery is the most heroic attribute of all

42,000 Match Sphere Gets Lit

I've actually thought about the curves and a possible sphere when playing with matches. But it's been long time since I've played with matches, and I never had enough free time to amass this many matches and put this experiment into action. YouTuber All Is Art did it.

What happens when you start gluing matches together? Because the heads are slightly wider than the wooden bodies, they begin to form a sphere. This was an experiment in how many matches it would take to get all the way around to make a perfect globe. After months of gluing and gluing and gluing we made it to the other side.

The answer is 42,000, give or take a few matches. What do you do with this sphere afterward? Light it up, of course!

Don't let the length of this video deter you- that all happens in the first three minutes. Then we get to see it from all angles, then in slow motion.  -via Geeks Are Sexy

Artist Reimagines Maps Of The UK's National Parks In J.R.R. Tolkien's Style

The maps of Middle-Earth J.R.R. Tolkien created for The Hobbit and The Lord Of The Rings are among the first examples of a fantasy author creating original maps to go along with their novels.

These iconic maps are elegantly simple, with just enough so the reader's imagination can fill in the rest and beautiful hand-drawn lettering that has become an intrinsic part of the world of Tolkien. 

Since Tolkien is an intrinsic part of UK history illustrator Dan Bell found a natural connection between Tolkien's maps and the map of the UK's national parks, so he is reimagining the UK parks maps in Tolkien's style:

To start his maps, Bell says that he works from an open source Ordnance Survey map, and begins drawing by hand. “I try to emulate his typeface as closely as possible, but have modified his mountains in an effort to develop a little bit of my own style.” He adds in additional details, such as forests, Hobbit holes, towers, and castles.

Presently, Bell has adapted a handful of the UK’s national parks, as well as places like Oxford, London, Yellowstone National Park, and George R.R. Martin’s Westeros, and has begun offering them for sale on his site. Once he’s done with England’s parks, he says that he’ll move on to converting the national parks of Wales, Scotland, and eventually, more of the US’s parks.

Turning a Car Into a Computer Mouse

For her latest weird tech project, Simone Giertz teamed up with William Osman to modify her tiny electric car, Cheese Louise. They turned it into a computer mouse. The aim is to draw a picture on a computer screen by driving the car.

(YouTube link)

What you might need to know is that Giertz only recently got her driver's license, and the car is around 30 years old. So the picture isn't all that much, but the project was a success and the video is entertaining. Osman's video about the project goes into more detail about how they did it, and it's funny, too, but longer.  

(YouTube link)

You should also watch the video about how Giertz came to own such a ridiculous car.  -via The Awesomer

The Father Of Artistic Figure Skating

Ice skating has been around for at least 5,000 years, but for most of that time, it was a method of transportation. The first competitive skating was racing. Figure skating is called that because in the beginning, it was all about making a perfect figure 8 on the ice. There were also some rudimentary "tricks" for show-offs, like jumping over things. Then came Jackson Haines, who is now considered the father of figure skating.

The person credited with developing the artistic side of skating in the late 19th Century is Jackson Haines, an American skater and dancer from New York. “Haines saw in skating tremendous theatrical and artistic possibilities,” Adams writes. “Haines experimented with a form of skating inspired by dance. He fit his skating to music, developed new moves (including the sit spin, which for many years was called the Jackson Haines spin, and invented a one-piece skate.”

But his style and innovations did not gain much traction in the U.S., which was more taken with the English style. So Haines went to Continental Europe to see if he could do any better there.

He did well, indeed. And the style he promoted is the reason why we watch young Olympians do amazing things in PyeongChang. Read about Jackson Haines at Deadspin.

Here’s All 290 Star Wars Movies Officially in Production Right Now

Disney is doing their best to milk the Star Wars franchise for all it can. We are looking forward to Solo: A Star Wars Story, Star Wars: Episode IX, the Kenobi film, a new trilogy of films by Ryan Johnson, another trilogy by David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, and a slew of TV series for Disney's streaming service. The Hard Times took this nonsense and ran with it, plotting a new Star Wars film for every year through 2361. They include documentaries, musicals, pornography (Porgasm! 2284) and origin stories for every character in the galaxy. Here's a sample.

228. Uncle Owen’s Revenge (2299)
229. Honey, I blew up the Death Star (2300)
230. Kylo Leonard Part 6 (2301)
231. Gone with the Mace Windu (2302)
232. Untitled Movie Set in Jedi Ghost Planet Starring a Yoda Puppet (2303)

At this rate, we shouldn't be surprised that Jar Jar's dad gets his own film (2022). I might skip that, but I am intrigued by Viva Los Vader (2038). I think Moisture Farmers’ Almanac (2032) might be a snooze. You can see them in classic Star Wars opening crawl form or read them at The Hard Times.  -via Metafilter

Those Who Work in Glass Offices

Apple is all about beautiful design, and the company's new "spaceship" headquarters building in Cupertino, California, has been hailed as a work of art. The huge work spaces are a mix of open floors plans and not-so-private offices, separated by glass walls. The design is meant to facilitate collaboration. That doesn't mean there aren't problems.

Surrounding the building, located in Cupertino, California, are 45-foot tall curved panels of safety glass. Inside are work spaces, dubbed “pods,” also made with a lot of glass. Apple staff are often glued to the iPhones they helped popularize. That’s resulted in repeated cases of distracted employees walking into the panes, according to people familiar with the incidents.

Some staff started to stick Post-It notes on the glass doors to mark their presence. However, the notes were removed because they detracted from the building’s design, the people said.

The idea for the glass pods is credited to Steve Jobs. -via Digg

A Geometric Tent That Can Withstand The Harshest Weather

Any old tent will work when you're staying at a campground, which is why most people buy a cheaper tent that's rugged enough to use multiple times but not so sturdy it can stand up to the harshest elements.

And the truth is there are very few tents out there that can actually withstand extreme temperatures and environments, and from the look of it none of them can compare to The North Face's newest tent- the Geodome 4.

The Geodome 4 is made to be used in the harshest conditions and most rugged terrains on Earth, plus one tent can hold four people so you don't have to "rough it" alone:

With its dual-layer, water-resistant exterior, the ‘Geodome 4’ was designed to resist wind speeds of up to 60mph. The tent sleeps four persons and offers enough clearance so that you can stand up inside.

Composed of five main poles and one equator pole, the dome tent is surprisingly easy to assemble, which is good news should those horrendous elements that you’d want to hide from be present.

For now though, the tent is only slated for availability in Japan.

The Shivers

Reading this comic, I had to nod, yeah, yeah, I'll always remember how I felt when I heard "It Don't Come Easy," "Love Her Madly," or "Treat Her Like a Lady," which are all songs from 1971. That's the year I turned 13. Then I got to the end of the comic and suddenly I feel so very, very old. They didn't even call it middle school back then. This comic is from the young Québécois geeks at CommitStrip.

Batgym - How Do You Think He Maintains That Bat-Bod Of His?


Batgym by MIKELopez

But Bruce doesn't let Arkham's a-holes get him down, he just keeps his bat-eye on the bat-prize and lets his heroic bat-muscles power through another workout- for justice!

Get in shape the geeky way- while wearing this Batgym t-shirt by MIKELopez, it's a mighty funny way to show love for your favorite classic TV show and keep things light while lifting heavy weights at the gym.

Love Potions Are Nothing But Trouble In "Werebeast"

Some guys try so hard to impress women they end up looking worse than if they'd just been themselves and asked the girl out normally, and the truly desperate think clothes, colognes or potions will get them a date.

The truth is tricks aren't the way to truly win someone's heart, and using magic to manipulate minds will only bring out the wickedness in the people whose minds you tried to warp. But some guys have to learn these lessons the hard way...

(YouTube Link)

Werebeast was created by Welsh animator James Lancett for the Nickelodeon International Animated Shorts Program 2014/15, and even though James hasn't turned it into a series yet he certainly has a good foundation!

Robot Mind Meld

In the word association game Robot Mind Meld, the object is to come up with the same word as a robot in as few steps as possible. You each start with a random word, and try to get closer to each other in the next attempt. I got lucky on the first try, as you can see from the three steps pictured. My second attempt landed in Israel, where it became clear there would never be an agreement. After that, I started to get the idea that the robot was not trying to follow me nearly as much as I was trying to follow it. Robots can drive you crazy! Or maybe I was in too much of a hurry. Try the game yourself, and let us know how well you did. -via Metafilter

Photographer Exposes The Truth Behind Professional Portraits

You know those "professional" portraits you see on Pinterest, Instagram and Facebook that make you say "gee whiz, that is one purrrrty picture! That photographer must be a real pro!"?

Well, they're real pro all right- real pro at staging a scene and selling it as a spontaneous situation or some sort of photographic magic.

And once you've seen the behind-the-scenes truths about how these "pro" shots are made, as revealed by Brazilian photographer Gilmar Silva in his series LUGARXPHOTO, you'll be able to enhance your own photo shoots with these pro tricks.

I love all the imaginative ideas pro photographers come up with for baby photos but most of the setups seem like pure torture for the poor little baby. However, after seeing how Gilmar creates these shots I'm totally on board the baby photo train, woohoo!

Nostradamus' Cookbook

Michel de Nostredame is best known today as a prophet, because of his prophecies written in verse. Those verses are so enigmatic that they can be connected to all kinds of historical events, whether he had any insight to them or not. But there was more to Nostradamus: He was a writer, a chemist, an apothecary, and a cook. All those activities came together in a 1552 book called the Traité des fardements et confitures (Treatise on Cosmetics and Jams). The book was full of things he whipped up himself in the kitchen, such as medicines, love potions, and beauty aids.

But other recipes are more recognizable and downright edible. In the Traité, sugar is touted for its ability to preserve fresh fruit, and many of the recipes resemble modern jam and jelly techniques. A recipe for morello-cherry jelly involves fruit cooked until soft enough to strain out the pits and skins, then mixed with sugar. If a dab of the jelly on a plate doesn’t slide around, Nostradamus writes, then it’s ready to be stored.

But at the time, sugar was fabulously expensive. This is probably why Nostradamus writes that several of his sweet concoctions are intended only for nobility or kings. Consider his quince jelly recipe. Nostradamus turns up his nose at those silly enough to peel their quinces before cooking them: The rind and peel, he writes, enhances the jelly. After boiling the fruit, straining it, and adding sugar (taking care not to overcook), the final product has the color of a ruby and is “fit to set before a king.”  

Read about Nostradamus' other recipes from the book at Atlas Obscura.

Outrageous Lies Celebrities Thought They Would Get Away With

Celebrities have a habit of letting their fame go straight to their head, thinking their status makes them untouchable, so they lie, cheat and steal even though they know their life is constantly being analyzed by the press.

Sometimes the lie just proves how hungry the actor is for a role, as was the case when Mila Kunis claimed she was turning 18 so she could be on That '70s Show when she was actually only fourteen-years-old.

Others tell huge lies because they're starving for attention, like pretty much any member of the half-baked Kardashian clan:

One of the weirdest lies told in recent history was told by Jack and Meg White of the White Stripes- they claimed they were brother and sister when they were actually a married couple. Jack is one of the most talented guitar players out there, so why rely on a gimmick to sell your band?

Paris' Sci-Fi Urban Utopia

The Espaces Abraxas and Arènes de Picasso is an apartment complex in a Paris suburb called Noisy-le-Grand, designed by Ricardo Bofill and Manuel Nunez-Yanowsky. Erected in the late 1970s, it was part of a huge effort to provide housing outside the crowded city. The modern and slightly dystopian look of the structure made it the perfect set at which to film the 1984 movie Brazil and the 2015 movie The Hunger Games: Mockingjay. Bofill designed the complex around a courtyard "theater," hoping to fill the apartments with a mixture of people from different classes and backgrounds and facilitate a feeling of community among them. When that didn't happen, he felt the "experiment" was a failure.

In 2006, Noisy-le-Grand sought to demolish parts of the development. After being met by widespread resentment from the population of Espaces Abraxas, the decision was made to keep them standing — for now. Kronental's photographs demonstrate very clearly that in spite of any assumed architectural or urban failings, these houses have been appropriated by their residents. In spite of the atmosphere of emptiness that Kronental has consciously captured, houses have become homes.

You have to wonder why anyone would tear down housing just because it didn't turn out exactly as you planned. The residents thought, "Oh, you wanted us to form a community? Why didn't you say so?" To keep their homes, they began to organize parties and clubs.

10 Things You Didn’t Know about Rounders

Do you recall the 1998 film Rounders? It starred Matt Damon, Edward Norton, and John Malkovich in a story about a compulsive but talented gambler who is trying to resist the lure of poker in favor of law school. Yeah, you know how well that works in movies. We follow him in a series of high-stakes games on the way to the World Series of Poker. Despite its star power and good reviews, Rounders did not do well at the box office. If it had been released a couple of years later, it would have benefited from the Texas hold 'em craze. As it is, the movie became a cult hit among poker fans on home video. Here's some more about Rounders.  

5. There are many types of games being played throughout the movie.

There’s No Limit Hold ‘Em, 7 card Stud, Draw or Stud, Forced Rotation, and so on and so forth. There’s a lot of different versions of the game and each person usually has their preference.

4. The film was set in New York but was shot in New Jersey.

It’s not that big of a jump really but there are many differences that can be noted.

There's more movie trivia about Rounders at TVOM.

The Uber Tuber

The following article is reprinted from the book The Best of the Best of Uncle John's Bathroom Reader.

Oh, the poor potato—a symbol of laziness (couch potato) and unhealthy eating (cheese fries). But it deserves much better. Here’s how the lowly potato altered the course of human history.

SPUDS OF THE INCAS

For at least 4,000 years, potatoes have been cultivated in the Peruvian Andes. The Incas called them papas, and although the flowers are toxic (they’re members of the deadly nightshade family), the part that grows underground -the tuber- is one of the healthiest foods humans have ever cultivated. Consider this: The average potato has only 100 calories, but provides 45% of the U.S. Recommended Daily Allowance of vitamin C; 15% of vitamin B6; 15% of iodine; and 10% of niacin, iron, and copper. Potatoes are also high in potassium and fiber, with no fat and almost no sodium.

But the papas that the Incas cultivated looked more like purple golf balls than today’s potatoes. More than 5,000 different varieties grew in the Andes, and there were more than 1,000 Incan words to describe them. The potato was so integral to Incan culture that they buried their dead with potatoes (for food in the afterlife) and measured time based on how long it took a potato to cook.

Animal Gaits

Four-legged animals have six different ways of walking, our at least most of them do, that are illustrated in this animation. I was surprised to see how a dog uses his left and right legs together in both front and back in the slower gaits. I had assumed that they usually worked the opposite way, as in the trot.

There are exceptions, like my three-legged dog who just does the best she can, and my neighbor's dog who doesn't walk at all as far as I can tell -he just sits on the porch. -via Boing Boing

'No Way To Prevent This'

Since 2014, The Onion has been running the same headline with the same article over and over. ‘No Way To Prevent This,’ Says Only Nation Where This Regularly Happens uses the same story every time a mass shooting happens, with only the location and number of victims changed. The seventh version of the story was published yesterday, after 17 people were killed at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.   

In May of 2014, it was UC Santa Barbara, California.
In June of 2015, it was Charleston, South Carolina.
In October of 2015, it was Roseburg, Oregon.
In December of 2015, it was San Bernardino, California.
In October of 2017, it was Las Vegas, Nevada.
In November of 2017, it was Sutherland Springs, Texas.

The headline was originally written by Onion editor Jason Roeder four years ago. Roeder no longer works for the website but his article still comes around. This time struck a little close to home- Roeder lives in Parkland, Florida.

Burglary Fail in Shanghai

Police in Shanghai have released security footage of a crime in progress. It went viral on Chinese social media, not because people wanted to help solve the crime, but because the perpetrators are the very definition of dumb criminals.

Free Ketchup!

My wife likes ketchup so much she slathers it on all kinds of different foods, including those I consider her sacrilegious for slathering ketchup upon- like tacos.

Personally I prefer salsa to ketchup, but I guess we've all got to get our daily dose of tomato blood somehow, and some people have stranger cravings than others.

And just so you know this Maximumble comic confirms the fact that tomatoes love how much we love their blood, so suck that red vegetable vital fluid down by the gallon! Stick a straw straight into a tomato if you have to, and don't worry- they don't feel pain!
