Why Olive Oil is Awesome

For a long time, I thought the only difference between olive oil and standard vegetable oil was the price. But would you ever find yourself dipping bread into plain vegetable oil, even with spices added? Olive oil is special, and Reactions, from PBS Digital, is here to tell us why.

(YouTube link)

In this video, we get a chemical explanation for olive oil's benefits, plus glimpse into the manufacturing process and some advice on using your oil. My advice: Start any meal by sautéing onions and garlic in olive oil. After that, it really doesn't matter what you add, it will be good.

The Lonely Lady- Worst Film Of All Time Or Trash Cinema Masterpiece?

Bad movies far outnumber the good, but to earn the title "worst film of all time" you've gotta really smut it up, leaving viewers feeling forever unclean by taking trash cinema to the bottom of the heap.

As far as I can tell The Lonely Lady isn't quite that bad, since it doesn't include gratuitous gore, racism, animal abuse or any of the other trashy elements filmmakers love to include to shock the audience.

But the film does include Pia Zadora as an aspiring screenwriter who gets literally and figuratively screwed by showbiz, and Ray Liotta appears as a rapist in one of his first roles.

According to Christian McLaughlin of Dangerous Minds The Lonely Lady is smutty enough to make audiences feel dirty after watching, but his grandma actually bought him a ticket to the movie back in '83 so how bad can it be?

(YouTube Link)

Now, nearly 34 years after its initial release in theaters, The Lonely Lady is available on Blu-ray from Shout! Factory so you can decide for yourself whether it truly is "the worst film of all time".

But, in case you're still wondering what to expect, here's a taste:

8. Pia’s brilliant writer character is named “Jerilee Randall.”  Jerilee Randall!

7. Jerilee’s attempt to get her indecently too-old, impotent and obscenely hairy-backed husband hard by cooing “Gently, gently”. 

6.  Instead of the luscious bi-sexy babes of Cinemax, the lesbos here are all repulsive predatory gargoyles, like the long-breasted bikini-clad matron in the hot tub who purrs the horrendously looped pick-up line “It’s wonderfully relaxing!” 

5.  The lesbian Italian movie star (who tricks Jerilee into a threesome with her toad of a husband) is cross-eyed, but her nipples point in different directions, too.

4.  Post-threesome, Jerilee is so disgusted with herself she showers with her clothes on and promptly suffers a nervous breakdown. 

3.  The best nervous breakdown scene EVER, in which the keys of Jerilee’s typewriter become the faces of her tormentors, before rising from the keyboard into a swirl of mocking sound-bytes and cheesy shattering optical effects.

The Forgotten Man Who Transformed Journalism in America

Younger people may know about Walter Cronkite or Edward R. Murrow, but hardly anyone born after 1970 remembers Lowell Thomas, or even knows about him. He was the first superstar journalist of the broadcast era. Thomas brought global news to so many Americans through an era that saw the development of radio, newsreels, typewriters, airplanes, and TV -and he embraced each new technology. That helped him become the biggest broadcast news personality of his day, and the size of his audience caused him to take journalism very seriously. Professor of journalism Mitchell Stephens has a new book out called The Voice of America: Lowell Thomas and the Invention of 20th-Century Journalism, and talked to Smithsonian about how Thomas changed the profession.    

Sensationalism was a major part of journalism in the early 20th century, but Thomas helped reshape this. How did he manage that?

The early 20th century was a time when a lot of people “improved” stories. It was a less fact-obsessed world than the one we live in and therefore a less accurate world. Lowell was a pretty sensational journalist in Chicago himself. Lowell got caught making something up in Chicago, but he learned a lesson.

When he got his great gig, hosting what at the time was a network radio newscast, he was aware of the responsibilities that went with it. He helped pioneer a more sober style of journalism. Lowell quickly realized that there were people among his hundreds of thousands and then millions of listeners who would write letters and complain to his network if he got things wrong. Because [the radio broadcast] had so many listeners and he was such a dominant figure, what happened there also spread to other iterations of radio, then TV, then newspapers. Lowell contributed to the fact obsession that journalists have today.

Read the rest of the interview at Smithsonian.

Artist Creates Miniature Versions Of The Places He Visits In His Dreams

Have you ever woken up after a vivid and realistic dream to find you can't get that dream out of your head?

Those memories of our time in the dreamlands are so clear they almost feel real, and even though our bodies never leave the bed our dreams take us to places so realistic we feel like we actually went there in person.

Miniature artist and photographer Vatsal Kataria uses his talents to create models of the places he has visited in his dreams, then he takes perfectly lit pictures of the models to recreate scenes from his dreams.

Sons of Melmac by MarianoSan

How To Make Air Powered Blood Squibs For Gunshot Special Effects

Squib is a fun word to say, and squibs are fun to talk about because their name sounds so funny people can't help but ask "what the hell is a squib?!" when they hear it said aloud.

But filmmakers know squib isn't just a funny word- it's the secret to making gunshot effects look realistic on camera.

This tutorial video by John P. Hess of Filmmaker IQ shares a brief history of the squib and shows us how we can make our own air powered blood packs on a backyard movie budget.

Alexander Graham Bell’s Tetrahedral Kites

In addition to developing the telephone, Alexander Graham Bell did extensive research in aerodynamics. He experimented with a tetrahedral structure for kites to lessen the weight-to-surface ratio to enable humans to fly.  

Bell began his experiments with tetrahedral box kites in 1898, eventually developing elaborate structures comprised of multiple compound tetrahedral kites covered in maroon silk, constructed with the aim of being to carry a human through the air. Named Cygnet I, II, and III (for they took off from water) these enormous tetrahedral beings were flown both unmanned and manned during a five year period from 1907 until 1912.

You can see a gallery of pictures taken during that time at the Public Domain Review.

Pics That Will Make You Laugh Even If You Don't Want To

(Image Link)

You can find a never-ending supply of hilarious pics and posts online, LOLing the day away while looking at memes, candids, photoshops and critter pics that make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

But there's a special kind of funny pic shared online that won't take no for an answer- pics that make you laugh whether you want to or not.

Seeing a waiter using a comically large pepper grinder, a painting of a cat with ridiculously long legs or a foot with fingers for toes may squeeze a chuckle out of you, but don't be embarrassed.

Because there's something so inherently human about being unable to control our laughter when we see something stupid funny that tickles our funny bone for some strange reason.

Splashdancing Gorilla

Where does a 380-pound gorilla dance? Wherever he wants to. Zola the gorilla lives at the Dallas Zoo. He's 14 years old, but he has a sense of fun that other gorilla adults don't often show. He especially likes his pool. Zookeepers say the pool is not just for fun, it's for enrichment. You say tomato, I say tomato.

(YouTube link)

The video was so delightful that folks immediately added a soundtrack. The resemblance to a certain 1983 movie was evident to Derek Mozer.  

(YouTube link)

Of course, you've seen Zola dancing before. We featured his break dancing five years ago when he lived at the Calgary Zoo. -via Metafilter

This Grown Man Makes An Amazing Flower Girl

Patrick Casey and his cousin Andria Farthing were ring bearer and flower girl at a wedding when they were kids. When Andria got engaged, she and Patrick knew who should be the flower girl. The result was adorable without being overly silly -even when Patrick put down the basket and threw handfuls of flowers from his pockets.

(Video Link)

He even included a throwback to the wedding they were in as children, saying “I used the same flower basket that she used when we were in that wedding together as children!”

A Dreamy History of Teen Idol Magazines

For decades, many young girls were ushered through puberty with the help of fan magazines aimed at exactly what they wanted- a dreamboat boy. Of course, those boys were TV actors or pop musicians, with a public persona carefully crafted by their management, their network or record company's public relations department, and the magazine's themselves. But it worked.   

Super Teen, Tiger Beat, Bop, 16. From the 1960s to the 1990s, these glossy, primary-colored magazines that looked like the inside of a 13-year-old girl’s locker door sold hundreds of thousands of copies each month and provided gleefully superficial insight into the non-threatening sex symbols of their respective eras. Jason Bateman was photographed cradling a Teddy Ruxpin; Matt Dillon could be seen eating pizza like any normal person. Readers were often referred to in the second-person to better help them visualize an innocent evening with their celebrity crush. ("Are YOU the Kind of Girl Adorable Tim Hutton is Looking For?")

The incredible popularity of teen idol magazines was largely due to the work of Charles Laufer, who recognized an exploitable readership. Read the story of how that happened, and how teen magazines worked, at Mental Floss.

Bucket List Destinations For Animal Lovers

(Image Link)

True wildlife enthusiasts like to make sure there's something animal related to do wherever they go on vacation, and these days it's not hard to find small nature reserves and sanctuaries that allow guests to visit with their animals.

But if you adore animals and you're looking for places to add to your bucket list then you should make your way to Phuket, Thailand so you can have lunch with the elephants at the Phuket Elephant Sanctuary:

Phuket is home to an ethical sanctuary where you can observe and feed the elephants as they roam and do as they please. Being able to watch, understand, and respect the majestic beasts as they go about their day is truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

(Image Link)

If Thailand is too far away and elephants aren't your jam then perhaps you'd rather head north to Hudson Bay, which is near the town of Churchill, Manitoba, so you can see polar bears in the wild.

Known as the “polar bear capital of the world,” Hudson Bay near the town of Churchill, Manitoba, is the gathering place of hundreds of the cuddly-looking creatures every autumn. You can book a tour in a tundra buggie where you’ll be able to observe the bears up close while they hang out and wait for the sea ice to refreeze so they can get their seal-hunting back on.

(Image Link)

But if one species of animal isn't enough to earn a spot on your bucket list then you must pay a visit to Kruger National Park in South Africa, where you can see all kinds of critters, including the Big Five:

Kruger National Park is home to the Big Five: elephant, lion, rhino, leopard, and buffalo, and a plethora of other magnificent mammals, birds, and reptiles. There are a wide range of safari options available, but no matter which one you choose be sure to have your camera constantly at the ready. You never know when a casual herd of rhino may wander by!

World's Ugliest Dog 2017

The Sonoma Marin County Fair in Petaluma, California, crowns the World's Ugliest Dog every year. And most years, a Chinese crested has won the title. But not this year! Congratulations to Martha, a 125-pound Neapolitan mastiff who took the top honor on Friday. Martha is notable for her loose and droopy skin, and her lack of enthusiasm for the contest. Why show off when you can lay down and take a nap?

(YouTube link)   

The dog, from nearby Sebastopol, was rescued when she was nearly blind from neglect by the Dogwood Animal Rescue Project in Sonoma County, where the contest was held. After several surgeries, she can now see again, Zindler said.

The only animal in this year's contest too big to be held by her handler, Martha beat out 13 other dogs, most of them the kind of older, smaller dogs who win here.

Martha won $1500, a trophy, and a trip to New York City. Read more about her at CBS News. Gizmodo disagreed that Martha was the ugliest dog in the contest, so they posted a gallery of their top five picks, in which Martha only placed fourth.

Vintage Kodachrome Shots From The '50s Of Ladies Posing Pretty

Photographers who used Kodachrome film in the 1950s had no idea the photos they were shooting would have that look people would immediately identify with the mid-20th century for the rest of eternity.

They just knew Kodachrome was the coolest looking color film available at the time, and up until 1954 the film was sold process-paid since it was so difficult for labs to process.

This cutting edge color film made people feel like they were posing for special pictures, so they tried to look their best and pose properly whenever someone was shooting with a roll of Kodachrome.

Nowadays we can use filters and other digital effects to give our pics a vintage look, but these modern pics will never really have that softly muted Kodachrome feel only vintage film can provide.

35-Pound Cat is Adopted

Symba was surrendered to the Human Rescue Alliance a couple of weeks ago when his owner went to a nursing home. Symba is 6 years old and weighs 35 pounds! The shelter in Washington, DC, put him on a diet and hoped to find a new owner who would continue the program. Publicity helped, and Symba has been adopted by Kiah Berkeley and Peter Sorkin.

“He is lovely. He is a really sweet guy,” Berkeley, 31, told ABC News of Symba’s personality.

The engaged couple heard about him like everyone else: on the news.

“There were a bunch of news stories about him,” she said. “We love cats. My fiancé and I had two cats already. I have a particular affinity for very large animals and he obviously was a really sweet, loving guy. Very cute.”   

Read Symba's story at ABC News. Keep up with Symba on his weight loss journey at his Facebook page.

If only some hero had the ability to see inside Steve's mind and find out what he's thinking maybe we could all sleep more soundly knowing the Captain is still lurking in there somewhere...

Show the world what heroes are made of by wearing this CAPTAIN AMERICA SKULL t-shirt by Gerkyart, it's one creepy cool design that will make your fellow fans grin with delight.

Watch Kylo Ren Use Your ASMR Triggers To Interrogate You

So far Kylo Ren hasn't been the most interesting Sith in the Star Wars universe, and his angsty and whiny personality leaves a lot to be desired.

Kylo's so annoying, in fact, that the whole thing may be an act used to drive his enemies crazy and get his captives to confess. Maybe he's perfecting some sort of whine-based ASMR technique to use on any Rebel scum he captures?

(YouTube Link)

Nah, he's just a whiny brat with a dark side, but this parody video by Auralnauts shows us what it might look like if Kylo Ren used ASMR triggers during an interrogation. It's surprisingly soothing!

Saigon’s Street Cats and Dogs

Jürgen Horn and Mike Powell have a postscript from their 91 day stay in Saigon (or Ho Chi Minh City). It's a gallery of the many dogs and cats they've photographed during their stay!  

We judge a city based on a few critical factors: cuisine, transportation, museums, nightlife… and the cuteness of its street cats and dogs. And that last one is a category in which Saigon scores high. Check out some of the creatures we’ve met during our 91 days in the city. Which would you take home? You can only choose one!

There are more dogs than cats in the collection, with some puppies and kittens thrown in for good measure, at For 91 Days.

World 1-1 From Super Mario Bros. Recreated As First Person Augmented Reality Game

World 1-1, aka the first level in Super Mario Bros., is one of the most iconic levels in video game history, and even those who have never played the game know how the level looks.

Mario comes bouncing in, smooshes a Goomba then starts punching bricks, discovering tiny Mario can't break through the brick blocks until he eats a mushroom that makes him tall.

This iconic level has been recreated by artists and game designers many times before, but this is the first time World 1-1 has been recreated in augmented reality, allowing designer/coder Abhishek Singh to play in Central Park.

(YouTube Link)

Abhishek used Unity3D to create the game and wore a Microsoft HoloLens rig to play the game, and the Mario costume Abhishek wore was purely optional but appreciated!

Look Who Caught a Record-Setting Salmon

If you've been wondering what legendary rock guitarist Eric Clapton has been doing lately, you need to look toward Iceland, where he's been doing a bit of fishing.

Clapton, while on a fly-fishing trip to Iceland last week, landed a 28-pound salmon on the Vatnsdalsá River, setting the record for reeling in the biggest salmon of the summer. The massive fish measured 42.5 inches. Working with Vatnsdalsá guide Sturla Birginsson, Clapton had to run over half a mile downriver after hooking the monster, and spent two and a half hours reeling it in. The local fishing association enforces a strict catch-and-release policy on the Vatnsdalsá River, but Clapton was able to snap a picture of his record-setting catch before setting it back into the river.

Clapton has always liked fishing, but after recovering from drug addiction more than 30 years ago, Gary Brooker of Procol Harem got him hooked on fly-fishing as an alternative. Since then, Clapton has even designed his tours around the availability of fly-fishing. He's been traveling to Iceland to Iceland to fish for salmon since 2000. Read about the guitarist's fishing habit at Men's Journal.  -via Metafilter

This Is What True Friendship Looks Like

It can be hard to tell when a friend is using you, or when they're using the friendship to get close to someone in your social circle, because manipulators will play the game as long as needed to get what they want.

But it's easy to tell when you've got a true friend in your corner, because true friends are willing to bend over backwards to make each other happy.

It's not like you expect your true friends to bend over backwards for you, but a true friend knows when you need a boost and doesn't expect a medal when they help you out.

(Image Link)

That's because a true friend can't stand by and watch their best bud struggle without wanting to lend a hand, even if that help makes them an accessory to a crime.

The song was researched, written, sung, shot, filmed, and edited by students of the Nueva School (previously at Neatorama) in California. The eighth graders are members of the Science Rap Academy.   -via Digg

Totally Innocent Things That Were Still Censored

When you look at this image, do you see George Washington nobly crossing the Delaware? Or do you see him showing off his erect penis? Well, one superintendent in the Muscogee County school district saw an erect penis and believed that for the good of his students, the painting featured in 2000 of his district's textbooks needed to be censored, so he had an art teacher paint over the offensive area in each of the books. 

And that's just one example of absolutely ridiculous examples of censorship featured on this TopTenz article. Also of note is the fact that Hitchcock actually had to fight to keep a toilet flush in the movie Psycho.

So don't miss 10 examples of innocent things being censored here.

The Frog Log Saves Wildlife in Your Pool

If you have a backyard pool, you've probably dealt with the horror of finding dead animals in it at one time or another. If they fall in, the sides are too steep and slippery for squirrels to climb out, and there's no solid surface for frogs to jump from. That's where the Frog Log comes in. The "critter saving escape ramp" is a floating platform attached to a ramp that anchors at the side of your pool. Small creatures, such as snakes, chipmuncks, or ducklings, can climb onto the platform from the water because it is edged with netting. The ramp also has netting for a firm grip. It's a lifesaver for the animal and you don't have to remove dead bodies before your refreshing dip. See a video at Geekologie that shows frogs, a salamander, a mouse, and a skink all escaping a pool using the Frog Log.

Wil Wheaton Is Reunited With His Wesley Crusher Uniform 30 Years Later

Wil Wheaton has had to come to terms with the fact that no matter what else he does as an actor he will always be known for playing Wesley Crusher on Star Trek: The Next Generation.

But at least he's known for playing a good role on a legendary show, so he can be proud of the role he's best known for, and Wil has definitely embraced his TNG past and ain't afraid to revel in his gloriously nerdy roots.

A few years back he was reunited with the original sweater he wore on the show back in 1987, and now he has been reunited with Wesley's actual uniform from the show.

Maybe it's time for a TNG reunion special?

The Sound Of Her Wings - Sandman's Sister Cometh


The Sound of Her Wings by Eriphyle

For some reason people expect Death to look like some cheesy skeleton in a hooded robe, and the newly dead are always expecting him to come after them with his wicked looking scythe. But Death doesn't need to use gardening tools or a gimmicky clothing style to get the job done, she just meets with the newly departed and fills them in on what to expect in the afterlife. Most souls prefer it that way, and they're all quite relieved to see Death as she is instead of the Grim Reaper they expected to see. Of course, a few tragic souls actually fall in love with Death when she comes for them...

Keep Death where you can see her at all times- on this The Sound Of Her Wings t-shirt by Eriphyle!

A Cow Catcher for People

When the automobile started taking over the streets, people were justifiably afraid of getting hit by one. In response, a device was tested in England in the 1930s that acted as a "cow catcher" for humans. Just a flick of the switch, and the Safety Scoop deployed and scooped up the pedestrian before he knows what hit him. Literally.

(YouTube link)

I'm sure you have the same thought I did upon seeing this. If the driver sees a person in the road in front of him, why wouldn't he just hit the brake instead of the device switch? That eventually occurred to motorists, too, because the device never did catch on. At Atlas Obscura, you can read more about the Safety Scoop and see a gif of another such device from 1927.

Or it's possible that the thought you had upon seeing this was that YouTube really shouldn't have placed a 30-second unskippable ad in front of a 33-second video.
