Prankster Fools Cops With Car Made Out Of Snow

Playing a prank on police officers is a good way to get arrested or worse, but when the prank is both harmless and hilarious the prankster behind the stunt may actually get props from the cops for pulling it off.

Simon Laprise is a cabinet maker and machinist from Montreal who likes to flex his artistic muscle in his spare time under the name L.S.D. Laprise Simon Design, and Simon sees every pile of snow as a possible sculpture:

“It was a beautiful day,” Laprise told VICE. “So I decided to do something out of the mountain of snow, to do a little joke to the snow guys, and have fun sculpting a car. It’s not my first one, just the first I do in the street on snow removal day.”

“To me snow is a great free material to sculpt anything out of.”

Simon sculpted a snow Delorean on a street where nobody is supposed to park in order to prank the cops, but as awesome as his sculpture is it was only able to fool the cops thanks to one small yet crucial detail- the windshield wiper.

The cops left a note under the wiper that said "You made our night" so I guess they're not too mad about Simon parking his snow Delorean in a no parking zone.

Job Opening for a Graphic Designer

The City of Los Angeles needs to hire a graphic designer. They need one badly, as evidenced by the ad they posted to Facebook, presumably by some third-grader who stepped in when the old designer was fired. If you think you can do better than this, apply at the city website. The pay starts pretty low for someone who wants to live in Los Angeles, but could offer a bright future of pay increases -and as government job tend to have, benefits. There are qualification as to experience and education, but no mention of having to be competent in MS Paint.  -via Boing Boing

What's Happening Outside The Frame On Famous Album Covers

Album cover photos help create a band's image by showing members of the band as super cool, super tough or super sexy, but if we could see what's happening outside the frame the facts wouldn't measure up to the fiction.

Russian photographer Igor Lipchanskiy has been busy destroying the carefully cultivated images of famous musicians by giving us a peek at what's happening outside the frame of the album cover, and it's a real mess.

Sometimes Igor's additions take the musician's sexiness down a notch or two, other times his comical off-screen antics leave the artists looking all wet, but when he added to John and Yoko's cover the story became straight scandalous!

10 Things You Didn’t Know about the Movie Mean Streets

The 1973 Martin Scorsese crime drama Mean Streets starred young actors Harvey Keitel and Robert De Niro. This was not De Niro's first film, but it came before The Godfather II and Taxi Driver. Critics raved about Mean Streets and De Niro won a Best Supporting Actor award from the National Society of Film Critics. Mean Streets, from the era before home video, has been overlooked relative to Scorsese's later films, but is well worth a watch 45 years later. Here's a bit more about the film:   

10. This was the first film in which Robert De Niro and Martin Scorcese worked together.

Obviously they would go on to collaborate in a lot of films after this. In fact it’s hard not to think of one or the other when you see their name on a film.

9. The music in the film took up half the budget.

There wasn’t much of a budget to begin with and getting the permission to use the music took a heavy toll on the expenses.

Learn more about the making of Mean Streets at TVOM.

London, 1682 vs. Today

The Great Fire of London destroyed the vast majority of the city in 1666. Of course, the river, the streets, and the property lines still remained, and the residents started rebuilding. But most city maps were gone, so work began on a new map.

The Morgan Map of 1682 was the first to show the whole of the City of London after the fire. Produced by William Morgan and his dedicated team of Surveyors and Cartographers it took 6 years to produce, and displayed a brighter perspective on city life for a population still mourning their loved ones, possessions, and homes.

Now the Morgan Map has been overlaid with aerial views of the city at the London Time Machine. A "spyglass" shows the city as it is today. You can move the spyglass around, zoom in and out, and pull the spyglass off the map the see how much bigger London is today. However, if you go too far, you can lose the older map and have to reload. Check it out here. -via Metafilter

The Boy Who Stayed Awake for 11 Days

Randy Gardner and Bruce McAllister needed an idea for a science fair project. They had heard about a man who'd just set a world record for staying awake, and decided they would beat it. The idea was to study the effects of sleep deprivation, whatever they were. A coin toss decided that Gardner would be the subject of the experiment, which was done over the Christmas 1963 school break. The story made the newspapers and drew the attention of Stanford University sleep researcher Dr. William Dement, who came to Gardiner's home to observe. That was a relief to the 17-year-old's parents, who were worried about their son's health and safety.

As all this was happening, attention from the media began to gain momentum and for a brief time the boys’ experiment became the third most written-about story in the American national press – after the assassination of John F Kennedy and a visit by The Beatles.

However, it was portrayed as a prank, in the same bracket as “telephone booth stuffing and goldfish swallowing”, according to McAllister. The students were very serious about it and pushed through. Eventually after 264 hours of no sleep, the world record was broken and the experiment was over.

Randy Gardner's world record still stands, mainly because Guinness no longer accepts record attempts due to the possible danger. Gardner's physical and cognitive functioning were tested throughout the experiment, and afterward he was sent to a naval hospital to have his brain scanned and his recovery documented. Read what they found in the boy who stayed awake for 11 days at BBC Future. -via Digg

A Salesman Makes A Suicidal Sheep An Offer He Can't Refuse In "Cosmos Laundromat: First Cycle"

Don't you hate it when a salesman approaches you in a place where there's no escaping their sales pitch? It makes you feel like a sheep being sized up by a hungry wolf, and once they've hit you with the product demonstration it's almost impossible to turn them away.

But before you turn them away you should really see what they're offering, because it could be something amazing that will make your life worth living again. (NSFW language)

The Ford Model K?

(Image credit: Sicnag)

The following is an article from the book Uncle John’s Perpetually Pleasing Bathroom Reader.

We’ve all heard of the Ford Model T—but we rarely hear about the earlier automobiles in the whole “model-letter” scheme. So hear you go…

ALPHABET CITY

In 1908, the Ford Motor Company, founded by Henry Ford just five years earlier, released its first Ford Model T—and the world has never been the same. The Model T was the first car that ordinary people could afford, and is regarded by automobile historians as the car that ushered in the Automobile Age (and killed the then extremely popular electric car). From 1908 until production ended in 1927, more than 16 million Model Ts were sold worldwide. No other car model ever sold as well …until 1972, when it was finally surpassed by the VW Beetle.

But the Model T’s great success overshadows all the models that came before it—all of them based on previous alphabet letters. Did Henry Ford make nineteen earlier models before the Model T—one for each letter before “T”? No. Most were experimental and never made it to production. But eight did.

A Lone Cat

There is obviously a good reason this cat is alone. All by himself. Lonely. Antisocial. Awash in his solitude, he turns to poetry. But no one is fooled by his plight -he likes it that way! This comic is from Jimmy at the treasure trove known as They Can Talk.

Pornhub Traffic Affected by Missile Alert

Residents of Hawaii will never forget the bogus nuclear missile warning they got last Saturday that sent them all into a panic. Everyone had to quickly decide what they wanted to do in the few minutes they had left to live. One metric that can be used to track behavior is web traffic. Pornhub, the huge pornography sharing site, released its traffic statistics for Hawaii last Saturday (link goes to Twitter). You can see from the graph that when the alert went out at 8:07 AM, traffic at the site plunged 77% below normal for that time of day. The correction went out at 8:45, and traffic began climbing again -to even higher levels than normal! Folks were making up for lost time, it seems. You have to wonder about the 23% of users who stayed online with the site even during the alert. My guess is that they weren't paying attention to anything else. -via Boing Boing

Cats, Music, and Dancing in Fantasia dei Gatti

Grammy-winning violinist Augustin Hadelich wrote a little story about a violinist (himself) who plays music for a cat, which draws all the street cats out to listen. He plays Caprice No. 17 by Nicolò Paganini. The cats are so impressed, they start to dance. They aren't very good at the beginning, but as they lose themselves in the music, they get better. Oh, and stay for the twist ending.    

(YouTube link)

Hadelich, who is a cat person as well as a musician, called his story Fantasia dei Gatti, or Fantasy of the Cats. Tam King did the animation. The music is from Hadelich's album Paganini: 24 Caprices. -via Laughing Squid

6 New Events at the 2018 Winter Olympics

The Winter Games open February 9 in PyeongChang, South Korea. Almost every Olympics has new competitions, usually after they have built an international following and have been showcased as exhibits during previous games. In 2018, these will include Men’s and Women’s Snowboard Big Air, Team Alpine Skiing, Men’s and Women’s Mass Start Speed Skating, and for the many who have fallen in love with curling, Curling Mixed Doubles. All these events appear to have been selected for the maximum possible TV audience.

While it started out as an X-Games event, extreme athletes will now get their chance to win gold medals in Men’s and Women’s Snowboard Big Air, which sees competitors performing their best spins and tricks after launching off a large (about 160 feet) ramp. For the first time, the Alpine skiing Nations Team Event will make its debut; the event features mixed teams of two men and two women going head-to-head in a series of downhill slalom races in a best-of-four competition.

Get a description of all the new events, with links, at Mental Floss.

Skittles Created A Super Bowl Ad That Will Be Seen By Only One Person

Super Bowl ads are really big business, and companies pay millions for the chance to get millions of people talking about their ads, but this year Skittles is skipping the Super Bowl and going ultra exclusive with their ad.

Skittles has decided to change things up a bit by creating "the most exclusive Super Bowl ad ever made" which will be seen by only one person- a 17-year-old from Canoga Park named Marcos Menendez.

(YouTube Link)

So marketing VP Matt Montei- WTF and why?:

“We’ve been a big part of the Super Bowl and continue to be a big part of the NFL," Matt Montei, marketing VP, fruit confections at Mars Wrigley Confectionery explained. “We really felt like we wanted to continue to reinvent ourselves around this timeframe and one way to do it is to just try a completely new way in.”

Montei elaborated that Menendez was chosen because he’s a true Skittles fan. Menendez will get to watch this “exclusive” commercial during the Super Bowl, while everyone else will just get to see Menendez’s reaction to the ad, streamed on Facebook.

Why Paris’ Greatest Art Nouveau Metro Stop Is No More

Look at this beautiful Art Nouveau building! This is the the Paris Metro station at the Bastille. Or it was, before it was torn down in 1962. By that time, it was considered old fashioned, and was demolished to make way for something more modern. The Bastille station was considered "garish" even when it was first built, one of 141 train stations designed by Hector Guimard and erected at the turn of the 20th century. A few still remain in the city.

Today, the Guimard stations are considered French national treasures, and there’s even a replica station in the New York MOMA’s Sculpture Garden. But back in the 1960s, a number of the stations were torn down as the city continued to modernize and expand the subway system. Tragically, the Bastille station was no exception.

Read about Guimard's unique metro stations and see plenty of pictures at Messy Nessy Chic.

Spike TV Is Dead So Their Twitter Person Is Having A Field Day

(Image Link)

The death of a television network can cause quite a stir in the TV world, especially when that network is beloved by fans, but Spike TV has died and I don't think anybody really cares.

The channel once billed as "the First Network for Men" is now the Paramount Network, so the person running Spike TV's Twitter account bid the channel a not-so-fond farewell by revealing the network's darkest secrets.

The embittered employee spent January 16th tweeting all kinds of wacky stuff about the network that is still up on the SPIKE Twitter page, because apparently Spike is dead so nobody gives a crap about their Twitter page.

Of course, the whole thing could be a publicity stunt, but if it is who stands to profit from these kinds of ridiculous confessions?

The Little-Known History of Seafaring Pets

Ship's cats have always been common, because they are the best way to exterminate rats and other vermin on long voyages. However, cats are just one of many types of pets taken on ocean travels throughout history. Sailors have been accompanied by dogs, pigs, chickens, rabbits, and other animals, and not all of them were for dinner. Patricia Sullivan, founder and curator of the online Museum of Maritime Pets, talked to Atlas Obscura about the little-known tradition of land animals at sea. They served in wartime and peace time, too.

Pets were also trusted companions for maritime explorers. “Many pets were working animals on exploration vessels,” Sullivan says, with dogs used for hunting at ports of call and cats on exterminator duty. More than all of this, seafaring animals played important emotional roles on long, grueling, monotonous, dangerous voyages plagued by uncertainty. “Sailors were out at sea for months or years at time, so pets were important de-stressors” she says. “I think people would have gone mad without something to pet.”

A few years ago, Sari Mäenpää, a curator at the Maritime Museum of Finland, was conducting research when she first really noticed the presence of pets in the museum’s image archives. “I came across loads of photos, especially from the sailing ship era, where cats and dogs were portrayed in ‘official’ crew photos, and suddenly I started seeing images of them everywhere.”

Read about more of these seafaring pets at Atlas Obscura.

No Means No - You Must Learn


no means no by Harsimran_sain

Why is it so hard for some people to accept the verdict when someone they proposition tells them "NO"? Maybe their ego can't handle the rejection, or maybe they think if they just press on the person will magically change their mind and accept their indecent proposal? It doesn't matter the reason why they persist with their pestering, their unwanted advances are annoying and these knuckleheads really need to start accepting that NO MEANS NO! So the next time you hear a big fat hairy NO from someone you're hitting on take the two letters as they are and walk away, because life's too short to spend it harassing uninterested people like a jerk.

Spread the word in the age of consent with this No Means No t-shirt by Harsimran_Sain, it's a fun text design with a serious message behind it.

Divers In Mexico Have Discovered The World's Largest Flooded Cave

I can't help but think of video games like Tomb Raider when I see pics of people exploring underwater caves, because the whole environment looks too fantastic to be real.

But there are plenty of real, and really beautiful, drowned caves out there that have yet to be discovered, and the Yucatan Peninsula is the place to go when underwater explorers are searching for flooded caves:

The low-altitude, limestone-laden expanse of the Yucatan peninsula is the perfect place for the formation of submerged underground caves—geological features the ancient Maya people referred to as “cenotes.”

(Image Link)

Divers with the Gran Acuífero Maya project led by Robert Schmittner have spent the last ten months trying to prove two massive underwater cave systems in the Yucatan are connected- the 163-mile-long Sac Actun and the 51-mile-long Dos Ojos.

And on January 10th their dedication paid off when they finally found the connection between the two caves, making it the largest known flooded cave system on Earth:

Prior to the discovery, the Ox Bel Ha system, located just south of Tulum, was ranked as the world’s largest at 167 miles (270 km). According to caving naming convention, when two cave systems are found to interconnect, the largest cave absorbs the smaller one. So the Dos Ojos system is no more, subsumed by the larger Sac Actun system.

10 Things You Didn’t Know about Doc Hollywood

The 1991 romantic comedy Doc Hollywood starred Michael J. Fox as a doctor on a road trip from Washington, DC, to Beverly Hills to begin a new job. That was his intention, but when things goes wrong, his plans eventually change. It's a familiar plot made special by Fox's talents and a heartwarming script. Let's learn what went into the making of Doc Hollywood.

10. Fox was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease shortly before this film was made.

He started noticing a mild twitch in his left pinky finger. The disease didn’t start getting worse until later but it was diagnosed in 1990.

9. The movie was filmed in Florida.

Micanopy, Florida is a small town just south of Gainesville and was inhabited by less than a thousand people at the time.

It's crazy to think that Fox has been dealing with Parkinson's for 28 years. Read more about Doc Hollywood at TVOM.

Family Shares The Cartoonish Results Of Their Photo Shoot With A "Professional" Photographer

Even though it's easy to shoot your own digital photos and get them printed any way you'd like people still hire professional photographers to shoot their "special" photos because they think the pics will turn out better.

But before you throw money away on a terrible set of photos taken by a "professional" photographer you'd better have a look at these ridiculous retouched photos shared by Pam Dave Zaring.

Pam says she hired a pro photographer to shoot some nice pics of her family, but the final photos she received had been "retouched" by the pro, who admittedly had no clue how to retouch photos or how to take a professional-grade photo.

Looks to me like this pro has been hanging out with the pro who "restored" the Ecce Homo Jesus fresco  a few years back.

Mantis Squad

What's going on with these mantises? Are they about to fight? Are they posing for a picture? Are they even alive? Yes, they are alive, and it appears to be a kind of stand-off, where they are bluffing each other, waiting and even daring one of them to make the first move. Bluffing and posturing are perfectly good tactics in the animal kingdom.

(YouTube link)

Turns out they are in their fighting stance in reaction to the camera, as it eventually becomes clear that's what they are looking at. They sure are pretty, for a bunch of bugs. Adrian Kozakiewicz (previously at Neatorama) of InsecthausTV has plenty more videos that delve into the mysterious world of insect behavior.  -via Boing Boing

A Neopets Romance

Here's a story that might make you feel good, but it will also make you feel old. It started 17 years ago when 12-year-old Kristin from Arkansas joined a Neopets role-playing guild called Evil Jellies. One of her rivals was 10-year-old Michael from Ohio, although she only knew him as "Doctor," and he only knew her as "Zepher_Cat." They eventually became friends and began to communicate by AIM.

"We went from silly rivalry to talking about school and life," Kristin said.

"It took a long time from having talked pretty much daily when we were younger teens when he finally sent me pictures of himself and we would sneak phone calls."

The pieces of each other's human selves started to come together after they exchanged their real names, locations, and photos over AIM. Kristin soon started to develop romantic feelings for Michael.

years went by, and Michael arranged to go to college in Kristin's home town. They married in 2013. You can read the whole story of what can happen when you talk to strangers on the internet at Buzzfeed.

The Oral History of Breaking Bad

This Saturday marks the 10th anniversary of the premiere of Breaking Bad. The AMC series followed Walter White, a chemistry teacher who turns to manufacturing methamphetamine after he develops cancer. It was an entirely new idea in TV to present a perfectly sympathetic character who gradually descends into complete villainhood and takes the audience with him. To celebrate the anniversary, Esquire assembled the people behind the show: Vince Gilligan, Bryan Cranston, Aaron Paul, and others, to tell the story behind the story.  

Charlie Collier, President of AMC, SundanceTV, and AMC Studios: I remember the day Breaking Bad hit my desk, because it was like nothing else I’d seen. At the time, we [AMC] had committed to Mad Men as our first scripted original series, but had not yet aired it. Having greenlit that, we were getting every historical pitch—flappers, Motown—and we wanted to steer clear. Having been American Movie Classics, we didn’t now want to become an “original classics” network known for period shows.

Vince Gilligan: Breaking Bad was dead by the time AMC came into the picture. I was emotionally moving onto other things, thinking, Well, we fought the good fight, but this show was just too damn crazy. A show about a guy cooking crystal meth and he’s the hero? What did I expect? When I got a call from my agent saying, "Hey, the folks at AMC want to meet with you about your project," I said, "Which project?" That’s how far gone I was. My response was "AMC? The channel where they play Short Circuit 2 ten times a day?" Little did I know they were undergoing a renaissance at that point.

Breaking Bad was an artistic treasure, but it also had some lucky breaks: AMC's rebranding, the writer's strike, and Netflix and the rise of binge-watching. Read the oral history of Breaking Bad at Esquire. -via Metafilter

The Dangers of an Icy Hill

From one end to the other, the state of Texas dealt with winter weather this week. Kristy Boyd of Longview, Texas, recorded vehicles trying to make it up an icy hill, with some having more success than others. Then a big rig tried it. It had the speed going up, but couldn't quite make it over the top. That's when things went downhill, so to speak.

(YouTube link)

First, gravity wins, then inertia. The real winner is the smaller car that didn't even try the hill. I bet that driver's life flashed before his eyes. -via Digg

What It Took For The Working Woman To Get Dressed In The 18th Century

Women are still struggling with issues of inequality and sexism even though we should have addressed and eliminated these wrongs long ago, but at least they don't have to wear the torturous clothing they had to wear in the 18th century!

Nowadays women can get dressed for work with ease, throwing on some light and comfortable clothes that don't chafe, constrict or weigh them down.

But back in the 18th century getting ready for work was a huge production that involved lots of lacing, layering and cinching, which puts the uncomfortableness of modern clothes into perspective.

(YouTube Link)

This episode in the series created by CrowsEyeProductions for the Lady Lever Art Gallery in Liverpool focuses on the morning routine of the working woman in the 1700s, and it's make you feel better about your morning routine!

Universal Dreams

Whoa, fella, there are universal dreams, and then there are your dreams! Have you ever just assumed that others share the same experiences you've had, and then one day you suddenly find out your experience is outside the realm of normalcy? I saw another example of this type of thing recently, which I declined to write about. It's a weird feeling when you come to the realization that something you've always known as normal is seen by others as unique, bizarre, or even terrifying. This is the latest comic from Randall Munroe at xkcd. By now, Munroe should be used to being unique.

Going Fishing

A little fishing trip is more complicated than just that, when you have to build your world first. Even when that world is on your desk in your bedroom! The result is just as cute as it can be.

(YouTube link)

I have some concerns, however, about the hooks that weren't removed from the fish before it was consumed. Swedish stop-motion animator Guldies Konst used 2,500 still pictures (out of 4530 he took) to create this video. That's a lot of time spent in his bedroom. You might want to go back and check out the images in the still frames -especially the fire. It looks completely different than what the moving video shows.  -via Tastefully Offensive
