Zebra in a Snowstorm

This is a cute illustration of a zebra from Raynato Castro and Alex Culang at Buttersafe, but the story escalates quickly. You must always remember that apex predators have camouflage, too. Here's what a polar bear in a snowstorm looks like. Yeah, you can see him, but more importantly, he is looking directly at you, you delicious warm-blooded human.

Helsinki in November

This sign was erected at the Messukeskus convention center to welcome visitors to the Slush  entrepreneurship convention, which was apparently a lot of fun. To belie the sign, the reddit thread is full of people telling what a great time they had when they visited or lived in Finland. Still, many suggest going in summer.

An Incident of Respect

The battleship USS Missouri, commissioned in 1944, is famous as the site of the signing of the Japanese Instrument of Surrender that ended World War II. Earlier, under the command of Captain William M. Callaghan, the ship had been attacked by a Japanese Zero piloted by a kamikaze attacker. On April 11, 1945, the fighter plane came in at a low angle, as you can see in the image above, and crashed across the deck.

Even as antiaircraft fire hit the plane, the plane hit the ship. The ship’s baker, Len Schmidt, captured the terrifying millisecond right before impact on camera. An explosion could have killed hundreds. Instead, what foxhole converts call a miracle – historians call it wartime’s dumb luck – intervened: the bomb fell off the plane before impact. The hit barely made a dent, although it did start a gasoline fire. The Japanese pilot was the only casualty. Half his body fragmented, scattering on deck; the other half sank into the sea with his plane.

With the special fury sitting-duck sailors expressed for these flying suicide bombers, crew members prepared to wash their enemy’s body into the sea. Then in a decisive, life-defining, incredibly decent move, Captain Callaghan said “No.” He decided to see past the fearsome façade, and honor the fearlessness—and fealty—this boy demonstrated.  Callaghan ordered that the body be brought to sick bay “and we'll have a burial for him tomorrow.”

Callaghan explained to his crew that they were not honoring the enemy, but instead a fellow warrior who had done his duty and given his life for his country. Read about the incident and the funeral at sea at The Daily Beast. -via Metafilter

Honest Illustrations About Our Tech Obsessed Lives

Integrating technology into our lives was supposed to make things easier for us, automating and managing aspects of our daily lives to ease our burden, but in reality tech has made things more complicated.

We now struggle to unplug, constantly searching for a wi-fi signal so we aren't disconnected from our online friends list, each of us easily distracted by the small screens in our pockets and purses.

It appears our priorities shifted when we weren't paying attention, and now we'd rather carry on heated discussions about the color of dresses instead of speaking about the sad state of affairs in America.

Illustrator Eduardo Salles has a knack for cutting through the digital chatter to expose the soft, fleshy parts of our minds that have yet to become permanently attached to the internet.

Plug his brutally honest illustrations in and enjoy!

An Honest Trailer for Suicide Squad

We heard hype about the movie Suicide Squad for what seemed like years before it actually opened. It was teased for quite some time before I figured out it was a Batman movie -or at least took part in the Batman/DC Comics universe. It did not fulfill expectations. Screen Junkies had an easy assignment with this Honest Trailer.

(YouTube link)

In fact, Suicide Squad had plenty of problems that weren't apparent in the finished film, but they sure contributed. They threw everything but the kitchen sink into this film, and it didn't help. What they really needed was some lighting.

Venus Flytraps Need Protection From Poachers In North Carolina

Venus flytraps aren't generally thought of as plants worth stealing, and since they're seen as a novelty addition to a garden it doesn't seem like they'd be worth much money.

But the Venus Flytrap is an endangered species due to overcollection so there's real money to be made by poaching Flytraps, and therefore poaching has become a family tradition passed down for generations.

The Venus Flytrap is native to swampy areas in North and South Carolina, and the only place in the world where it grows wild is a 75 mile radius around Wilmington, where it has been protected by state legislation since 1956.

In fact, poaching has become such a big problem conservationists are afraid the Flytraps will be picked into extinction by poachers, who often sell the plants on the black market for about 25 cents each.

The poachers aren't above stealing this rare plant by the thousands from greenhouses and nurseries in the area too, and it's estimated there are only about 35,000 plants remaining in the wild.

Five of the Top Stargazing Destinations in the World

Stargazing is good for the soul, but if you want to see the real glory of the cosmos above us, you need to get away from light pollution. And the clouds, of course. Just getting out of town is a good start, but if you want the view of a lifetime, you might think about planning your next vacation around the view of the stars at night. One place to see amazing stars capes is Chile.   

Chile may be known for being one of the driest places on earth, but it is also a destination known for great wine, great beaches and great skies. Described by many as an astronomers’ paradise, Chile is an ideal stargazing destination due to its lack of precipitation, clear skies and low-to-zero light pollution.  The near-perfect visibility gives stargazers crystal-clear views of Southern Hemisphere sky legends- including the Tarantula Nebula and the Fornax Cluster of galaxies. In fact, the northern part of the country experiences more than 200 cloudless nights each year!

When you’re there, don’t forget to visit renowned astronomical observation sites such as the Paranal Observatory- home to the Very Large Telescope (the largest in the world), and the Atacama Large Millimeter Array, the world’s most powerful radio telescope.

Guy Gets Revenge On His Cat For Waking Him Up In The Middle Of The Night

Cats act like they don't know the difference between day and night, but those little furry bastards definitely know the difference- and they know the middle of the night is the best time to get our attention.

So we get frustrated with them, wage a cold war and freeze them out until they do something cute and wind up right back on our good side.

But Nick T didn't pussyfoot around after his chatty tabby Italic had woken him up every night for a week straight- he meowed for vengeance.

(YouTube Link)

People were so concerned about Nick T's cat that he made a follow up video to show the world that his feline is fine. (barely NSFW due to language)

(YouTube Link)

So fine, in fact, that Nick T felt compelled to make another video to show how footloose and fancy free Italic is now that he knows the internet is on his side. They've unleashed a beast!

Photos That Will Make You Think Twice About Using Public Transportation

(Image Link)

Public transit services help people get around town without a car, but everyone who regularly rides the bus, train or trolley agrees on one thing- riding on public transportation sucks.

(Image Link)

Between the constant delays, the filthy conditions, the crime, the stench, and the crowd of people you're forced to share the space with it's no wonder people would rather pay to take an Uber to work than ride the train.

(Image Link)

The train scene has gotten so bad that even superheroes are having a hard time surviving the trip, which isn't that surprising if you consider they have more experience fighting giant monsters than dirty naked dudes.

(Image Link)

That's why the granny in this shot bought herself a special subway assault rifle for the ride!

Montreal Pileup

Winter is definitely here. A snowstorm in Montreal Monday left a super-slick surface on Côte du Beaver Hall, which is a steep street. Why hadn't they plowed or salted it yet? Because the snowplow is having trouble getting around, just like everyone else. This is what you call a "slippery slope."

(YouTube link)

I bet you were watching this video thinking of what could possibly be coming down the hill next. Digg has a second video that has live commentary in a colorful mixture of French and English.

Say it with me now: "A slippery slope on a super slick surface on a steep street."

Lil' Devil - Toon In For Some Fiery Fun!


Lil' Devil by poopsmoothie

World's Oldest Bell Foundry to Close

The Whitechapel Bell Foundry in London made Big Ben, the Liberty Bell, and the Bells of St. Mary's. It has sent bells all over the world since the business opened in 1570. The foundry has been at the same Whitechapel location since 1783. But now owners Alan and Kathryn Hughes have announced that they will no longer take new orders, and the firm will close down next May.

It has been several centuries since the boom years of bell making, yet the foundry has found ways of adapting to modern times by making traditional doorbells, popular among people restoring Victorian properties.

The Downton effect has seen a third of its business exported overseas.

However, quality craftsmanship takes time. The average time from enquiry to order is 11 years, and the longest commission in the foundry’s history took 100 years to produce.

Order to installation takes another year, and a major project could cost as much as £250,000 to produce.

It's still possible that someone else will purchase the equipment and keep producing bells at another location. Read more about the oldest bell foundry in the world at the Telegraph. -Thanks, John Farrier!

Confronting Freedom of Religion at the Local Level

The First Amendment to the Constitution begins: "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof…" and goes on about freedom of speech, the press, and assembly. How does that translate to state and smaller governments? The Kenai Peninsula Borough is an area, like a county, south of Anchorage, Alaska. the Kenai Peninsula Borough Assembly is its governing body. In June, one member of the Assembly proposed a new rule that would do away with a prayer before opening Assembly meetings, but it wasn't passed due to lack of interest. So they opened up the invocation to anyone who wanted to give it on a first-come, first-served basis. In August, Satanic Temple member Iris Fontana opened the meeting with a prayer that invoked Satan. At another meeting, an atheist spoke for the invocation. 

In October, the Assembly changed the process of selecting who gives the invocation.

As the new resolution spells out, those eligible to recite an invocation include religious associations "with an established presence in the Kenai Peninsula Borough that regularly meet for the primary purpose of sharing a religious perspective, or chaplains who may serve one or more of the fire departments, law enforcement agencies, hospitals, or other similar organizations in the borough."

In November, the rules were changed again to re-open the invocation to anyone who wanted to give it. That happened after they started thinking about possible lawsuits.

An ordinance that would have appropriated $75,000 in borough money to fight future court battles over the religious rule was withdrawn as a result of the Assembly approving the amendment. Decker said in the past that while the ACLU hopes not to sue, it wouldn't rule it out, "if that's what upholding the Constitution takes."

However, the reversion to the open rules has not yet taken effect, so the story is not over. The simplest thing would be to do away completely with an invocation before Assembly meetings. There's nothing wrong with a good "I call this meeting to order." -via a comment at Metafilter

Some Of The Most Distracting Extras In Movie History

Movie extras mill about in the background of our favorite TV shows and movies, paid to act like regular folks doing regular stuff while the main actors deliver their performances.

But hiring regular folks to be movie extras can pose a problem if they're not coached on the concept of blending in, like the crazy "businessman" who tries to steal the spotlight in this clip from Ghostbusters.

(YouTube Link)

It can be just as hard to make a kid understand how their fidgeting, or in the case of North By Northwest preemptive ear plugging, may detract from a scene's sense of drama when they're visible behind the actors.

(YouTube Link)

Child extras can also get hurt if the actors aren't careful, which the "Candy Man" almost learned the hard way in this scene from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.

Watch as the blonde girl in the bottom right corner of the screen narrowly dodges the counter, and a broken jaw, like a little ninja:

How To Make Real Eggnog

I gave one of my daughters her first taste of eggnog (store-bought) when she was maybe seven years old. She sipped it and said, "Oh Mom, that's disgusting. Why did you give me that?" I thought, "sez the kid who eats sardines in mustard sauce." That's eggnog for you; people either love it or hate it. Eggnog is a real American drink, from our colonial history when milk, eggs, and rum were  plentiful here compared to Europe. The real pull was that the original drink had more alcohol than milk or cream, which conveniently preserved the milk and eggs. We've refined our recipes considerably since then, and egg nog connoisseurs agree that homemade is better than store-bought. Uproxx has three different recipes for your holiday eggnog, including George Washington's popular recipe that produced the drink by the gallon.

13 Interesting Facts About The Ocean’s 11 Films

Ocean's 11 was a 1960 Rat Pack film that was popular, but not as big as the 2001 remake, which spawned two sequels with another related movie now in development. Whether you're already a fan or plan to watch them all someday, you'll want to check out some trivia about those three films.    

The cast had to accept a lower salary for the first movie in 2001.

As there were so many A-list stars featured in the first film, they all had to accept a lower pay check if they wanted to be involved. They all agreed eventually as they all wanted to be on the film together.

Brad Pitt ate 40 shrimp while filming for the scene where Rusty eats a shrimp cocktail.

It was actually Brad Pitt’s idea that his character should be eating all the time to show that the Ocean squad were pushed for time, meaning they had to grab food whenever they could.

A Map Featuring Every Country's Tourism Slogan

Catchy slogans are the advertising world's bread and butter, and they're often able to sell a campaign to a client simply based on the clever catchphrase or slogan they create for the ads. But do slogans really work?

Maybe when you're walking down a store aisle trying to choose between two brands, but it's safe to say nobody's packing their bags and taking a trip somewhere based on the destination's tourism slogan.

And yet every country thinks it needs a tourism slogan nowadays, because people clearly won't visit The Bahamas until they hear "Life is grand" there, and people will only go to New Zealand if they know it's "100% pure"

British travel site FamilyBreakFinder put together this massive world map featuring every country's tourism slogan, in case you're curious about how countries advertise themselves to tourists:

From the straightforward (‘Travel in Slovakia – good idea’) to the dramatic (‘Colombia is magical realism’) these slogans are an insight into the ways tourism departments in countries across the world sell their countries to visitors. There are 9 exclamations used (Lithuania’s previous slogan used three with ‘See it! Feel it! Love it!’ but is now ‘Real is beautiful’) and the most popular word used is ‘Beautiful’ which appears six times.

The Slaughtered Lamb - The Safest Place To Be During A Full Moon

Two years later, we get an update to the story, this time in animation.

Can You Solve the Airplane Riddle?

Professor Fukanō is going to circumnavigate the globe in his airplane, but his tank doesn't hold enough fuel for the entire trip. He has support planes of the exact same model which can refuel him in the air, but none of the planes can land anywhere except the starting point airport. How can he get around the world without crashing from lack of fuel? There's some math involved. If you want to try this on your own, keep in mind that only Professor Fukanō's plane needs to go all the way around. Good luck.

(YouTube link)

I didn't even attempt to figure this out on my own, but the answer is rather simple when you start thinking in the right direction. It's that initial thinking in the right direction that's so daunting. Students of British military history have an edge, in that this kind of thing has been done before. Operation Black Buck during the 1982 Falklands War saw RAF bombers fly 12,600 kilometers, and had to refuel from support vehicles. The refueling scheme had to be explained in a diagram.  -via Viral Viral Videos

Renovating A Nearly 200-Year-Old Home In Mississippi

There are very few homes left in America that are over 150 years old, so any time someone buys a really old home they face many decisions about renovation.

Is the house going to be able to be brought up to code? Could the home be considered historic and therefore worthy of preserving at all costs? Or is the whole thing just waiting to be torn down so the lot can be used for a new build?

These were the dilemmas faced by Maria and Mac Thomas when they bought a house in Fayette, Mississippi that was built in 1825, an historic plantation home known as Laurietta.

From the outside the house looked like a total tear down, but inside they found Laurietta was a solid structure, so they decided to go with a gut renovation instead of destruction.

Three years and lots of hard work later they were able to transform that dilapidated old house into a thing of beauty once again.
