Young Han Solo Has Been Cast

Disney’s stand-alone Star Wars movie about Han Solo in the days before he met Luke Skywalker is not scheduled to hit theaters until 2018, but the role has been cast. The scruffy-looking nerf herder will be played by Alden Ehrenreich, who you may remember from the movie Hail, Caesar!

Why did they select an actor so early? Because he will have a cameo appearance in the movie Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, which is scheduled to be ready in December of 2016. -via Uproxx

Designer Brings Ridiculous Drawings Of Bicycles To Life

There's a huge difference between sketching and design drawing, and the biggest difference between the two is the need for precision.

Design drawings are created so something can be physically built from the illustrations, while sketches are supposed to be kept loose and quick, a reaction rather than a precise rendering.

Designer Gianluca Gimini thought it might be fun to turn a scratchy sketch of a bicycle into a realistic design, and after five years of gestation he was ready to bring this concept to life.

Gianluca asked hundreds of people to sketch a bicycle from memory on a sheet of paper, then he turned their ridiculous designs into 3D renderings of real (but hardly ever functional) bicycles for his series "Velocipedia".

Even though many of them wouldn't function for long before falling apart, it would be interesting to ride them all and see how the little errors in the sketch affect how each bike feels to ride.

How Much Does It Cost to Give Birth?

When you go to a hospital to have a baby, you probably don’t have a clue how much it will cost. For one thing, most people don’t have a choice of hospitals. You go to the one your insurance will cover, and where your doctor has privileges. Or the only hospital in town. They charge what the want, and knowing won't change that. Johnny Harris and his wife Isabel wanted to get an idea of what the bill might be beforehand, but ran into problems -no one wanted to quote any numbers. It’s a secret!

(YouTube link)

Luckily, they had insurance, and the insurance company haggled the bill down after the birth. A person without insurance would be stuck with the entire bill, and hospitals rarely negotiate prices with individuals. The “good” news is that if they think you won’t be able to pay the bill, you’ll be sent home within 24 hours. As expected, the comments under this video are full of Europeans shocked that Americans have to pay to have a baby.  -via Viral Viral Videos

Boaty McBoatface Gets a Name

If you’ve been following along, you know that an online poll to name a UK polar research ship went viral, with the name Boaty McBoatface receiving by far the largest number of votes. However, the Science Minister declined to actually name the ship Boaty McBoatface. Today it was announced that the ship will be named the RRS Sir David Attenborough. Although not quite as funny, few would argue that the soft-spoken BBC broadcaster who taught us about nature doesn’t deserve the honor.

However, a small exploratory submarine that will be housed aboard the Sir David Attenborough has been named Boaty McBoatface, despite the fact that it is a submarine, and not a boat. Here’s to many years of scientific discoveries and blog posts ahead featuring the names Sir David Attenborough and Boaty McBoatface.

Kid Wakes Up From Anesthesia With Strange Accent And Even Stranger Story

(Image Link)

Everyone handles the effects of anesthesia differently, and for some people coming down is the hardest part of the process.

The kid in this video is named Brandon, and he woke up in a hospital bed speaking in a vaguely Jersey Shore inspired accent and talking loud about how his boy Rocco knocked somebody out.

(YouTube Link)

Is there actually a Rocco? Brandon's mom certainly doesn't seem to think so, but apparently Brandon was dreaming about hanging with Rocco in Dubai, and a camel in a Camaro...cah-ray-zee talk!

10 Transformed Public Toilets of the World

There used to be a lot more public toilets in the UK. Oh, many of them are still there, they just don’t serve the same function as they once did. With the price of urban real estate at a sky-high level, these spacious former conveniences have been put to other uses. Such is the case with the Edwardian Cloakroom in Bristol.

Rather than selling off this Grade 1 listed Edwardian toilet in Bristol, the local council kept hold of it and, following conservation of the local area, turned it into an art-space.

Built in 1904 in a style typical to the area at the time, the toilet features individual Ladies and Gents blocks, which local artists are able to hire out free of charge to use as exhibition spaces.

Instead of tail-coated gentleman and well-to-do women, the black and white tiled floor and wood-panelled cubicles have seen visitors coming in to view pop-up shops, art shows, installations and even plays.

Such conversions are happening in other countries, too. Read about public toilets that have been turned into bars, restaurants, hotels, shops, theaters, museums, and even homes, at Urban Ghosts.

Mattress Hits Motorcyclist, Cushions His Fall

It was his unlucky and lucky day.

The bad news is that an unsecured mattress fell out of a truck and hit a motorcyclist. The good news is that of all things to be hit by, he was hit by a mattress. It cushioned his fall.

According to internet rumors that I cannot verify, the motorcyclist escaped injury.

Tug of War: The Story of The Great Gatsby

(Image credit: Chris Gash)

F. Scott Fitzgerald's great American novel was a flop—until it was deployed overseas.

One day in 1937, F. Scott Fitzgerald stepped into a Los Angeles bookstore hoping to grab a copy of The Great Gatsby. Scouring the shelves, he couldn’t find anything with his name on it. He stopped by another bookstore, and another. At each one, he ran into the same problem. His books weren’t in stock. In fact, they hadn’t been for years.

When The Great Gatsby was printed in 1925, critics roasted it resoundingly. “One finishes Great Gatsby with a feeling of regret, not for the fate of the people in the book but for Mr. Fitzgerald,” wrote Harvey Eagleton of the Dallas Morning News. “F. Scott Fitzgerald’s Latest a Dud,” chimed the New York World. A critic from the Brooklyn Daily Eagle was more pointed. “Why [Fitzgerald] should be called an author, or why any of us should behave as if he were, has never been explained satisfactorily to me.”

Readers agreed. The Great Gatsby sold a modest 20,870 copies—nothing like Fitzgerald’s previous best sellers, This Side of Paradise and The Beautiful and the Damned. The literary lemon put the brakes on the author’s extravagant lifestyle. As the decade wore on, his wife’s mental health deteriorated, his marriage collapsed, and his drinking became a disease. Three years after that disappointing visit to the bookstore, he died of a heart attack at 44. “The promise of his brilliant career was never fulfilled,” his New York Times obituary said. His funeral was rainy and poorly attended—just like Jay Gatsby’s.

History forgot Fitzgerald while he was still alive, so why do we think of The Great Gatsby as the enduring classic of the Jazz Age? That story begins, and ends, with a world war.

Kentucky Fried Chicken Offers Edible Nail Polish

(Photo: Ogilvy & Mather)

KFC claims that its chicken is "finger lickin' good." Now you can take that way too literally with its line of nail polish that is as edible as the rest of the items on its menu (for what that's worth). It teamed up with the spice company McCormick to create polishes that taste like the Original and Hot & Spicy flavors. They're debuting in Hong Kong. Adweek reports:

"The recipe for our edible nail polish is unique and was specifically designed to hold the flavor, but to also dry with a glossy coat similar to normal nail polish," says Ogilvy creative director John Koay. "This campaign is designed to be intriguing and fun to increase excitement around the KFC brand in Hong Kong."

Bird Goes the Extra Mile to Attract a Mate

This is a male specimen of Jackson’s widowbird (Euplectes jacksoni), native to Kenya and Tanzania. Both the male and female are a dull brown color, except during mating season. That’s when the male grows a glossy coat of black feathers, and a ridiculously long tail. At Atlas Obscura, you can see a gif showing how hard it is to fly with that tail. But what this bird wants to do is hop!

In addition to primping up their appearance, the rest of the Jackson’s widowbirds’ mating ritual is quite elaborate. A male widowbird will create a little stage for his dancing performance by clipping down the tall grass to form a three-foot-wide circle and defend the territory from other males. He’ll leave a small patch of grass in the center of the circle as a platform where he will proceed to hop up and down. You can see the widowbird in the video jumping up repeatedly to show off the length of his tail while singing a soft call to lure females.

(YouTube link)

Now, what lady widowbird could resist such a performance?

Detective Fox - Gee Mister, You Look Fantastic!


Detective Fox by Crab Metalitees

You know that old expression "sly as a fox"? Well, it's true, foxes are the craftiest and slyest critters in the animal kingdom, and that's why they make really good detectives. People assume you must be law abiding and noble as a knight to help bust criminals, but that's simply not true, because the best way to get inside the mind of a criminal is to act a bit like a criminal. You know, steal a few eggs from the hen house, snatch a pie off a window sill, that sort of thing. Nothing serious, just some petty larceny to get you thinking like a crook and help you solve the case. After all, it's not good to go around detecting and solving on an empty stomach!

Add some awesome animal style to your geeky wardrobe with this Detective Fox t-shirt by Crab Metalitees, with deep, bold blues and amazing artistic details that'll drive all but the hens wild with delight.

The Best Unintentional Cosplay From The 2016 Met Gala

When celebs get all dressed up for a high profile function they usually get some famous fashion designer to choose their wardrobe for them, so they show up looking tres chic and totally cool at the big event.

This system usually works out well for both parties, as the designers get free promotion and the stars get free cutting edge fashion styling, but this system also leaves the celebs at a designer's mercy.

Celebs like Nikki Minaj, Zayn Malik and Solange Bowles showed up to the Met Gala 2016 dressed in designer fashion that really made them stand out, never knowing the designers were secretly turning them all into cosplayers. Well played, fashion elite!

Why Pen Caps Have Holes in Them

(Photo: Globkrajono)

I'd long suspected that disposable ballpoint pens had holes in the caps so that they'd dry out faster. It's planned obsolescence.

But that was incorrect. It's actually to save lives.

Every year, about 100 people in the USA choke to death on pen caps. The purpose of the hole is to provide an air passage in the event that the pen cap becomes lodged in an airway. Science Alert explains:

By simply adding a larger hole to the top of the lid, pen company BIC increased air flow and the chance that people would still be able to breathe even if that happens - a design feature that, quite literally, saves lives.

"In addition to help prevent the pen from leaking, all our BIC caps comply with international safety standards that attempt to minimise the risk of children accidentally inhaling pen caps," the company writes on its website. "Some of these vented caps, like that used for the BIC Cristal, has a little hole in the top to comply with the existing safety standards."

Dash Cam Footage Shows Kangaroo Attacking Car At Midnight

I have it on good authority that Australia is full of kangaroos, and if you go there to visit you will most likely see a 'roo hopping around at some point during your trip.

This same authority will tell you that kangaroos are feisty critters that shouldn't be approached in the wild because they may attack, and a kick from their hind legs can cause grievous bodily harm.

But what the authority failed to mention is that kangaroos are so feisty they'll take on a car, using their mighty legs to take out a driver- Mad Max style. (Contains NSFW language)

(YouTube Link)

Apparently Australia turns into an island of terror at night, where roving kangaroo wrecking crews patrol the roads looking for victims...

7-Pound Breakfast Taco Is the Hangover Cure for Cinco de Mayo

(Photo: El Original)

On May 5, 1862, a Mexican army under the command of Generals Ignacio Zaragoza and Porfirio Diaz defeated a French army at the Battle of Puebla, temporarily halting the French invasion of Mexico. Consequently, Americans drink tequila on May 5 every year.

If you drink too much tequila, then El Original, a Tex-Mex restaurant in New York City, offers this breakfast taco as a hangover cure. It's called the Seis de Mayo. This whopping 7-pound taco contains a dozen eggs, a pound of sausage, a pound of bacon, and a pound of peppers and onions. It costs $50.

Walt Whitman—Patriotic Poet, Gay Iconoclast, or Shrewd Marketing Ploy?

Walt Whitman was a distinctive and provocative poet of the 19th century. At the height of his fame, as he faced old age, Whitman became an advertising icon. He didn’t seek it out, and he wasn’t even consulted. He didn’t profit from in, either. And the products that were sold bearing his name or face had little to do with the poet himself. It started with cigars. Whitman didn’t smoke.  

During the Gilded Age, new industrial technology, particularly in chromolithography and tin-stamping, caused an explosion in product branding and advertising with colorful product labels, tin boxes, and tin signs. This new era of marketing meant familiar literary characters and beloved authors could be used to drum up excitement for an unknown products.

So when cigar maker Frank Hartmann bought the Spark Cigar Factory in Camden, New Jersey, in the late 1880s, the celebrated local bard was an obvious mascot. By 1890, his company introduced its Walt Whitman brand of cigars. But Hartmann wasn’t the only entrepreneur to have this idea: At least a few companies in the cigar manufacturing center of Binghamton, New York, started offering their own Walt Whitman cigars around the same time. The branding arrived as Whitman was facing his mortality and doubting whether Americans were truly touched by his life’s work. When Whitman disciple Horace Traubel presented the poet with an 1890 envelope advertising Walt Whitman cigars, he reported that Whitman exclaimed, “That is fame! … It is not so bad—not as bad as it might be: give the hat a little more height and it would not be such an offense.”

But that was just the beginning. Whitman’s name, image, and/or quotes were used to sell calendars, coffee, applesauce, gum, hotels, whiskey, and a slew of other products. Collectors Weekly talked to ephemera collector Ed Centeno about Whitman and his allure with advertisers, and looks at the life of the poet, too.

Dad Dressed as Darth Vader Wakes up Son


(Video Link)

Rob Lopez began getting his 2-year old son Sebastian ready for Star Wars Day last Friday (it's a holiday that requires a lot of prep work). Lopez woke up the boy while dressed as Darth Vader and menacing him with a lightsaber.

Sebastian, a fine padawan, responded with admirable courage. At 1:43, he demonstrates that he knows exactly what he should do if Darth Vader visits him.

My favorite part of the video is when Lopez thoughtfully gets his wife's written permission to play this prank on their toddler. He's smart!

Car Repairs So Bad They're Brilliant

It must be amusing to work as an auto mechanic and watch all those wrecks and “there, I fixed it” jalopies roll in begging to be sent to that great big junkyard in the sky.

Oh the stories those mechanics must tell while sitting around the table at dinner time, tales of duct tape patch jobs and Coke can pipe repairs.

Hopefully when someone rolls in with one of these poorly patched up automobiles those kindly mechanics cut them a deal, because you know someone is broke when they can't even afford a new tire!

Following the Top 5 Songs

An animated graph of Billboard’s top songs from Polygraph lets you watch the top five songs rise and fall over time. Not only that, but it plays the number one song while it’s at the top! This covers the years 1956 to 2016, so you can select a great year for memories and just let it play. Well, that’s what I’ve been doing. You might want to to analyze the movement or something. This is cool. There are a few glitches in the 1950s, but the '60s really rock. And so do all the other years. -via Metafilter

Dog Saves Hummingbird's Life. Now They're Best Friends.


(Video Link)

Rex the dog has come a long way.

He was a stray who lived a hard life of fighting other dogs and killing cats on the streets. Then Ed Gernon of Whittier, California rescued him.

Having been rescued, Rex pushed on the cycle of kindness. He brought Gernon's attention to a sick hummingbird, lying on the ground and covered with ants.

The pair nursed the bird, whom they named Hummer, back to health. Now Hummer lives with Gernon and Rex. She's Rex's constant companion. You can read more about them at CBS News Los Angeles (auto-start video).

Five Smart Hotels that Take Tech to the Next Level

Some major hoteliers are harnessing technology to cater to their guests without having to hire extra staff, and along the way, they can save room, time, and energy. If you’re used to doing everything with your phone, you’ll want to visit these someday.

Developed by Caesars Entertainment, the LINQ offers hotel rooms control entirely by the WeChat app. This includes adjusting the lighting, opening and closing the curtains and changing the temperature on the thermostat without getting up from the bed. These smart hotel rooms are catering to the overseas Chinese guests. When you first arrive in the hotel room, you simply scan a QR code to instantly download the app which operates under a WeChat official account.

This collaboration between Caesars and WeChat is one of many in operation that is being used to study foreign markets for additional opportunities. Caesars is planning to construct and ecosystem that leverages WeChat in future hotel rooms to provide the ultimate hotel experience.

These hotels are obviously not for everyone. I find the idea of a hotel chain knowing that much about me to be a bit creepy. Besides, I don’t have a smartphone. There is a hotel on the list that provides iPads in each room for those who don’t have a smartphone. Still, that doesn’t make anything easier for older people who are not quite computer literate. But for globetrotting technophiles, these inns are the wave of the future. See all five hotels at Money Inc.

The Secret To Writing A Good Star Wars Script, According To West End Games

Even though a few impossible to satisfy detractors disliked Star Wars Episode VII most audiences loved returning to their beloved Star Wars universe, and saw no real problem with the writing.

So what was the deal with the prequels?

Apparently George Lucas didn't follow the style guide released by Lucasfilm in 1994, but the folks at West End Games read it closely while creating the finest Star Wars RPG to date.

(Image Link)

This extensive style guide was meant to give the West End Games team some parameters for what lore could be included in the game and some guidance on how to approach a Star Wars storyline.

Lucasfilm Creative Executive (and former West End Games writer) Pablo Hidalgo has been tweeting out snippets from the style guide to show us how intense writing licensed Star Wars projects used to be, before Lucas threw it out the window for the prequels.

Reading it is like seeing into alternate Star Wars dimensions that could have landed on the big screen and getting some sound advice on crafting a franchise specific storyline at the same time.

This Little Pet Owl Loves To Take Baths

Wild owls bathe every once in a while, mostly by splashing a bit of water on themselves since their featers aren't as , but some wild owls don't seem to like to bathe at all.

It's unclear how little Trude would act in the wild, but in captivity Trude is a big fan of baths, and loves to float around in the bath like a wide-eyed rubber ducky.

Turkish Pizza

It's called pide and it looks delicious! Instagram member stark_eats describes how he discovered it at a restaurant in Istanbul:

A bearded gent from northern Turkey, crammed in with his family at the table next to ours, upon noticing our non-Turkish tongues, asked us with guarded suspicion how we found out about this family-run spot. Once we gave him a satisfactory answer, he told us we had chosen wisely, for this was his favorite pidecisi in Istanbul. When we were about to dig in, he told us to first slide the butter around the crust and then eat. Glad we did
