Thieving Squirrel Takes Christmas Treats

Michele Boudreaux set out a box of treats for delivery drivers who are working hard this Christmas season. The local wildlife noticed, and a squirrel decided the box was fair game. Boudreaux tells the story of the thieving squirrel at her blog.

On Monday, I put out this year’s treat table and—NO JOKE—within a few hours, ALL the Ghirardelli chocolate squares were gone. I couldn’t believe it. Why would someone do such a thing? And why would they take the most expensive chocolate on the tray? Why not rob us blind of all the Reese’s and Mini Snickers since I can’t seem to stop eating them because holy crap, trash candy is so damn good and I totally don’t choose Us Weekly over Time while in the waiting room.

But, no. This thief took the good stuff. And I wanted to cry. It was day one and already two packs, like 25 pieces, of Ghirardelli squares had been taken from us.

A video camera caught the thief in action.

The chocolate is now in a jar that requires opposable thumbs to open. -via Tastefully Offensive

Three Routes, Two Songs

Okay, when you saw this, which band started playing in your head, Led Zeppelin or AC/DC? I have to admit that it was AC/DC first for me, despite being a Led Zeppelin fangirl through my formative years. What musical genre would the song "Mobility Scooter to Purgatory" fall under? Easy listening? You have to admit the concept has less punch than heaven or hell, since purgatory is temporary, if I recall correctly. This is the latest comic from Aaron Scott at TwoLeafClover. -via reddit

Who Knew Dragons Poop Bricks Of Pure Gold?

Cracking up at the thought of someone pooping may seem a bit lowbrow or juvenile to most, but the image of a dragon crapping a brick of gold is just plain funny no matter your age or maturity level.

Seeing a centaur poop on a human toilet is similarly hilarious, especially when they struggle to wipe, but a merman sitting on a toilet is anticlimactic because they don't have a butt.

However, put all of these mythical poopers together and you've got the making of one fantastic commercial for the Squatty Potty!

The History of Christmas in New Zealand

The first Christmas celebration in what would become the nation of New Zealand was in 1642 after Abel Tasman's ship arrived. The weather was bad and the crew ate a pig from the ship's supplies. The next such feast in New Zealand was over 100 years later.

The next celebration of Christmas in New Zealand occurred during James Cook’s first expedition in 1769. The crew of the Endeavour marked the occasion by feasting on ‘Goose pye’ for their Christmas dinner while battling heavy seas off the tip of the North Island. There were no geese, so the crew had to improvise – with the magnificent gannet that had been shot in preparation for the feast by the ship’s noted botanist, Joseph Banks.

Apparently the Endeavour’s crew spent Boxing Day ‘nursing hangovers’. The Boxing Day tradition of suffering from Christmas excess clearly has a long history in New Zealand.

This is just one anecdote on the history of Christmas in New Zealand. Metafilter has a list of links that tell of New Zealand traditions of Christmas foods, games, parades, music, and more.

Outdated Methods And Technology Still Widely Used Today

Humans genuinely dislike change, especially when it comes to changing the way we do things in our everyday lives, and even though we keep discovering new and better ways to do stuff the old ways refuse to die.

We constantly complain about how vending machines rip us off, how much those magnetic strips on our credit cards suck and how stupid and useless red light cameras are, and yet these outdated technologies refuse to die.

And speaking of outdated- why are we still using the same optical media we've been using for over thirty years?

But the one outdated tech that makes me wonder "why is this still a thing?" is the alkaline battery- they're terrible for the environment, a pain in the ass to recycle, and yet they outnumber rechargeable batteries ten to one at retail stores.

John Boyega's Odyssey to The Last Jedi Premiere

The Last Jedi premiered last night in Los Angeles. It was a star-studded event with the cast, director Rian Johnson, and Disney/Lucasfilm executives front and center. Costumed characters such as droids and Stormtroopers were everywhere. The event, as well as the movie itself, was dedicated to the late Carrie Fisher.

"I do want to acknowledge and dedicate tonight to Carrie," Johnson said from the stage, looking to the sky. "I know she's up there right now flipping me the bird, saying, 'Damn it Rian, how dare you bring the mood down and make this night a solemn tribute.' So let's have a blast together for Carrie."

The Last Jedi is dedicated to Fisher with the inscription, "In loving memory of our princess, Carrie Fisher."

But what about John Boyega? He woke up in Atlanta Saturday morning to rare Georgia snow and went to the airport to find that his flight had been canceled. Twitter lit up with anxiety among Star Wars fans that he wouldn't make it to the premiere. 

Several people suggested that Harrison Ford fly him in, but to quote a certain scruffy-looking nerf herder, "That's not how the Force works!"

Boyega made it out of Atlanta, and arrived in California in time for the premiere, although without his luggage.

The Time Builders Made An Exact Replica Of The Simpsons House

The Simpsons' home is one of the most iconic houses in television history, and the fact that the house is featured so prominently in every episode makes it instantly recognizable to anyone who's ever watched the show.

Which is why the Fox network decided it would make a great grand prize for some lucky Simpsons fanatic out there, so they hired homebuilders Kaufman and Broad (now KB Homes) to make an exact replica of 742 Evergreen Terrace.

The replica Simpsons house was built in Henderson, Nevada in 1997, but when the winner Barbara Howard was offered either the house or $75k cash she took the cash because the house was too far away from her family farm.

The original Simpsons replica home featured rooms decorated to look just like the original, a replica of Bart's Treehouse in the backyard and an El Barto tag on the side of the house painted by Matt Groening himself.

Sadly, the fact that Barbara didn't take the house meant it became just another piece of commercial property, and the new owners took it from totally toon-tastic to bland and boring when it was sold in 2001.

Here's a fun video via AV Club showing pop culture archaeologist Adam The Woo visiting the formerly fun home back in 2015:

30 Cold, Hard Facts About Die Hard

The 1988 movie Die Hard broke new ground in many ways. We had heartwarming Christmas family movies, and we had Christmas horror films, but this was a Christmas action blockbuster. It put comedic actor Bruce Willis into a heroic role we weren't used to at the time. And it introduced us to Alan Rickman as the attractive yet terrifying villain Hans Gruber. Die Hard holds up well 29 years later. And it has a long and really interesting backstory.

1. IT’S GOT A LITERARY BACKGROUND.

Think some action-loving Hollywood scribe came up with the concept for Die Hard? Think again. The movie is based on Roderick Thorp’s 1979 crime novel Nothing Lasts Forever, which is a sequel to his 1966 novel, The Detective. In 2013, Thorp’s long out-of-print book was resurrected to coincide with the film’s 25th anniversary.

2. IT WAS INSPIRED BY THE TOWERING INFERNO.

The idea for Nothing Lasts Forever was inspired John Guillermin’s 1974 disaster flick The Towering Inferno. After seeing the film, Thorp had a dream about a man being chased through a skyscraper by a group of men with guns. He eventually turned that snippet of an idea into a sequel to The Detective.

The extensive trivia list goes on to follow the casting, production, and pivotal moments of the film. Read the story of Die Hard at Mental Floss.

Americans in Debt

The Urban Institute has an interactive map that shows how many Americans are in debt county-by-county. But not just "in debt," because that would be almost all of us. This shows the percentage of people whose debts have gone to collections

Debt in collections includes past-due credit lines that have been closed and charged-off on their books as well as unpaid bills reported to the credit bureaus that the creditor is attempting to collect. For example, credit card accounts enter collections status once they are 180 days past due.

At the site, you can click on counties to get a breakdown of the percentage of people in collections, how much they owe, and what percentage owes medical debt. My county shows 52% of households have debt in collections, and 33% have medical debt in collections. If only we could all be like Minnesota. -via Digg

Street Disco by Benedetto Bufalino

(YouTube link)

French artist Benedetto Bufalino (previously at Neatorama) is known for his absurdist stunts. This year, he came up with a rather ridiculous idea that turned out to be a lot of fun. He covered the rotating drum of a cement mixer truck with mirrors, turning it into a giant portable disco ball! Bufalino took his truck out into the streets of Lyon, where pedestrians were invited to come dance the night away. With some music and some well-aimed lights, a good time was had by all.  -via Nag on the Lake

12 Bizarre Inspirations Behind Star Wars Movie Characters

As weird as the characters (and settings, in the above case) of the Star Wars universe are, they all have an origin of sorts. The creators have been asked time and time again where they got their ideas, and the answers range from goofy (literally) to sublime. A few come from previous movies, which makes sense for movie makers, like the cantina in the wretched hive of scum and villainy. Others were inspired by real people, although we'd like to know what those people thought about it.



That's two. You can see the other top inspirations for Star Wars characters at Cracked.

The Quest for the Holy Grail Meets Parkour

A group of Knights Templar are on a quest to "liberate" the Holy Grail from the fortress of the Frenchmen who have it in their possession. They'll have to harness their best weapons skills and ability to leap tall buildings! Oh yeah, and a little bit of trickery, too. It's violent, alright, but not too bloody.

This is what happens when you give Devin Supertramp a television production budget and access to a French castle. Its a promotional film for the History Channel series Knightfall. And it's pretty durn good. -via Geeks Are Sexy

The LOLcats of 1911

LOLcats are much older than the internet, and even older than current copyrights. The children's book Kittens and Cats: A First Reader (1911) was written by Eulalie Osgood Grover. The simple captions tell the story of a cat throwing a party for all her friends.

The images are attributed to the Rotograph Company, which lead us to believe they were the work of a young Harry Whittier Frees before he began selling cat pictures under his own name. His talent for posing cats in clothing would develop far beyond what is contained in the 1911 primer.

Popular Super Powers That Are Actually Totally Impractical

(Via lycoris_collective)

Comic book nerds dream of having super powers because we believe these powers will make our lives better in some way, but when we really analyze what it means to have certain powers the cons far outweigh the pros.

(via Rosetti)

Now I wouldn't exactly call bone claws a super power, but I also wouldn't call them a practical thing to have around at the flick of a wrist, especially if you have pets or small children in your home.

Nightcrawler made teleportation look like a really cool power, but there would be too much pressure to get your jumps just right for it to be practical.

(Via AntiparticleCollider)

And the classics super speed and super strength seem like they'd be handy on paper, but the human body isn't built to handle that kind of stress so using your power would mess you up but good.

(Via OrangeJosh)

The Personal Assistant Robot

Wait, what? It was enough of a shock to realize that I am talking to the robot instead of the guy, but the underlying implication of that last line is a bit ominous. Am I one of those friends he finds boring? Does that explain the contrast in happiness lately? And here I was, getting a bit jealous because I don't have my own personal assistant robot. Now I just want to go sulk. This is the latest comic from Chris Hallbeck at Maximumble.

Rockin' Out On A One Dollar Guitar

Talented musicians have a way of making any and all instruments sound better than expected, but making a crappy little toy guitar from a dollar store sound good seems like an impossibility.

However, as we've learned many times before Rob Scallon is a musical wizard, and when he wraps his hands around a cheap toy guitar from Dollar Tree he somehow manages to make it sound like a million bucks.

Okay, that's a bit of an exaggeration, but it's safe to say Rob got his money's worth!

Carjacked Infant Found, Honey Biscuits Credited

Two parents were carrying laundry into a laundromat in Galveston, Texas, when a carjacker jumped in their vehicle and took off -with their baby in the back seat! The thief eventually realized the baby was in the car and left her and the car seat in a parking lot about ten blocks away. Stephen Ward found the 4-month-old and called police. The baby has been reunited with her parents, but the car and carjacker have not been found. Ward was reluctant to take full credit for finding the child.    

Ward said he credits his love for chicken and biscuits for leading him to the baby.

"The real hero hit here is Church's Chicken because if it wasn't for those honey biscuits I probably wouldn't have even gone down that way," he said. "I probably would've gone home."

Now, that's the way to get some free honey biscuits! Read the full story at KPTV. -via reddit

Every Christmas Horror Movie, Ranked

How many Christmas horror movies can you name? There's a lot more than that. Would you believe that Film School Rejects found and critiqued 79 Christmas horror films? Yeah, there are quite a few that you've never heard of, but you might want to look them up if you're into that sort of thing. Of course, in an age when people are vehemently arguing over what is or is not a Christmas movie, there was the initial problem of defining a Christmas horror movie.

We decided on the following criteria. A Christmas horror movie should be feature-length, set on or around Christmas day, and feature some combination of terror, villains, and/or the threat of death. We also put no limit on tone so horror comedies count every bit as much as torture porn. A handful of titles that fit these guidelines still managed to slip by us due to a lack of availability, but those stragglers aside this remains a holiday miracle and the most comprehensive ranked list of Christmas horror movies ever assembled.

Sequels help a lot. When you have Bikini Bloodbath and its sequel Bikini Bloodbath Car Wash, the next step is to produce Bikini Bloodbath Christmas, which is a real movie. It's a long way from that one to the upper-tier films like Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale (shown above). Check out the full list at Film School Rejects. -via Metafilter

The Curvature Blindness Illusion

Psychology professor Kohske Takahashi of Chukyo University in Japan presents a new optical illusion called the Curvature Blindness Illusion. The first thing you should know is that all the lines across the page are exactly the same shape. You can see that in the corners with the light and dark contrasting backgrounds. But in the gray background, some seem to be curvier, while others seem to be more angular. That's because of how the colors (actually shades of gray) of the lines are segmented. When the colors break at the top and bottom of the curve (in the line perceived as a zig zag) we see a corner where they meet. The lines with colors that continue over the upper and lower curve makes us perceive a gentler curve when the background contrast is low.

This illusion has two implications. First, the percepts of a gentle curve (wavy line) are impaired by discontinuity of contrast polarity at the turning point, while the percepts of an obtuse corner are not; this implies that the mechanisms of the gentle curve and obtuse corner detection are separable in terms of contrast polarity. Second, the illusory percepts of an obtuse corner (zigzag line) appears and replaces the gentle curve, which indicates the imbalanced competition between these two percepts.   

Cool, huh? You can read about the experiments conducted with this illusion in Takahashi's paper in the journal i-Perception. -via Digg

How to Take Out an AT-AT

What's the best way to disable an AT-AT? It's elementary! Tie a rope around the machine's feet until it trips, while riding your unicycle and playing a Star Wars tune on your flaming bagpipes. We learned that secret in The Empire Strikes Back. Since we know from the trailers that there are AT-ATs in the new movie The Last Jedi, the Unipiper donned a rebel pilot uniform to demonstrate the tactic for the new generation of Star Wars characters.

The Christmas Wrapping Lesson

Stavanger Foto is a photography store in Norway. They do funny Christmas cards every year. This year, the staff recreated the painting The Anatomy Lesson of Dr. Nicolaes Tulp that Rembrandt painted when he was only 26 years old. The photo store guys didn't have a corpse, so they made do with Christmas packages.



I think it's an improvement over last year's card.

TheTigon, who works there, posted these cards to reddit. The guys got quite a few compliments on their neck floofs.

YouTuber Rescued from Microwave in Stunt Gone Wrong

Jay Swingler and Romell Henry of Fordhouses, Wolverhampton, UK, do dangerous stunts for their YouTube channel TGFbro. When you continue to amp things up for the audience, sooner or later something will go wrong.  

But for their latest video, Swingler took the experimentation to a whole new level of idiocy when he put his head in a microwave and filled the appliance with Polyfilla, a spackling paste that’s supposed to fill holes in walls. To be “safe” (nothing about this is safe) Swingler included a flimsy breathing tube. But that tube became blocked as the material hardened and expanded, and Swingler began to panic, which no doubt made him require more oxygen. His friends attempted to dismantle the microwave and chip away around his head using a knife (!?), but thankfully called emergency services before Swingler suffocated to death.

The West Midlands Fire Service was not amused.

Read the full account of the disaster at Gizmodo. The article contains the YouTube video, which is age-restricted and has been demonetized. That means that YouTube won't allow advertising on the video because it violates community standards.

The Penguin Who Knew Too Much - Something Is Fishy About This Case


The Penguin Who Knew Too Much by Steven Rhodes

Sam Slade was heading toward another dead end in his murder investigation when he discovered a strange clue he'd somehow missed the first time around- a small, webbed footprint. After comparing it to a few examples he discovered the print belonged to a penguin, which was really odd considering the murder had taken place in Cleveland. How had a penguin ended up at the scene of a man's murder, and how much did that flightless bird know?

The Second to Last Jedi

If Star Wars were an opera, or even a Broadway musical, the producers could do much worse than to hire Whitney Avalon to write the tunes. In this song, she narrates what is going through her head as she struggles to harness the Force to pull off a Jedi mind trick in The Force Awakens, even though the title is a reference to The Last Jedi, out in one week. 

(YouTube link)

Yeah, it's a hokey idea, but it's also clever and well-done. You might recall Whitney Avalon from the Princess Rap Battles. Her wish is for Daisy Ridley to see this video. -via Geeks Are Sexy

What Happens To Condoms When They Sit In Your Drawer For Years?

If movies that star inanimate objects come to life like Sausage Party are to be believed then all condoms hope to be put to use after they've been purchased, even though that means they'll wind up in the trash or flushed down the toilet.

And yet few condoms will actually leave their package, because guys tend to buy way more condoms than they need, so instead of being used most will end up forgotten in a sock drawer or, even worse, shriveled up in some guy's wallet. (NSFW language)

(YouTube Link)

These ridiculous animated shorts by CollegeHumor show us what happens when condoms go unused, so they're like a safe sex PSA and a raunchy animated comedy in one!

Here's to 2017

Once again, Beutler Ink has produced a year-end poster paying tribute to the newsmakers, celebrities, trends, and memes of the closing year, titled Here's to 2017. This year, that involves a lot of details. I'm happy that Wonder Woman is front and center. Among the politicians and protesters, you'll see plenty of pop stars, athletes, and fictional characters -and a crowded RIP section. That's a lot of people, which makes it hard to see at this size. Enjoy a much larger -and enlargeable- version at Beutler Ink, where you'll a link to purchase the poster if you choose. -via Nag on the Lake

Why Can't I Sleep?

It used to take a steady supply of hard drugs, strong coffee or pills to get so strung out you couldn't sleep at night, but nowadays all you need is a computer screen or a smartphone to get totally cracked out.

Because if the endless content, constantly refreshing Instagram feed or all the cute cat videos shared by your aunt on Facebook don't keep you up at night the blue light generated from your screen damn sure will.

Plus, as this For Lack Of A Better Comic comic shows, having your smartphone sitting on your nightstand will keep you up at night too, especially when it beckons to you to pick it up and search for stuff online...
