Selk'bag, the Wearable Sleeping Bag

Wouldn't it be great if you could walk around and feel just as warm and cozy as if you were wrapped in a blanket? And then you could stop and take a nap anytime? That's the idea behind the Selk'bag. It's a wearable sleeping bag you can walk in! Move over, Snuggie, this is a game-changer. Picture this: you're camping, it's a bit cold outside the tent, but you left your alarm clock in the car. Not a problem when you're wearing a Selk'bag. Even if you never go camping, you'll love the feel of staying warm around the house. What could be better? Well, maybe if the sleeping bag made you into a Star Wars character…


Which they do! Selk'bags offers officially-licensed wearable sleeping bags that will transform you into Chewbacca, Darth Vader, a Stormtrooper, or a Rebel Pilot!



They're available in kid's sizes, too -perfect for a slumber party. Or for wearing on long trips in the car, when you would really like your kids to sleep, but need them to be ready for anything.

Check out the selection of Selk'bags available now. And all the Star Wars Selk'bags will be 30% off from July 1 to the 23rd in celebration of Comic-Con!

Dog Photographer of the Year Winners

The Kennel Club in London holds an annual photography competition that puts man's best friend front and center. Winners have been selected in ten categories.

Maria Davison from Portugal has been selected as the overall winner of the competition with an image of an adorable puppy resting his head, which was placed first in the ‘Man’s Best Friend’ category. Maria began taking photos of her dogs and other pets three years ago.

After finding out she had won the world’s largest canine photography competition, Maria said: “This image was already close to my heart and it is one of the photographs I am most proud of. It was not only a beautiful, real and candid moment I got to capture, but also a demonstration of the strong bond between one of my closest friends and her dog, Yzma. Winning not only the Man’s Best Friend category, but also the overall winner prize with this picture feels really good.”

Winners in the various categories come from all over the world. You can see the photos that topped each category here, and don't neglect to click through the "special mentions." -via Digg

The Evolution Of Nintendo Consoles

Nintendo doesn't just make games and consoles that change our video game lovin' lives- they make consoles that are built to last a lifetime, and it's not uncommon to hear about gamers who own NES consoles that still work.

And now with the release of the Switch they've changed the world of gaming once again, giving us the hybrid console of the future we didn't know we needed.

Along the way there were some misses like the Nintendo GameCube, later improved by the Panasonic Q, which was basically a GameCube with remote that can play DVDs.

The Q was only released in Japan and was a commercial flop, so Nintendo discontinued it two years after it was released.

There is still one thing I've always wondered about the NES and the original Japanese version the Famicom- why didn't the NES have cool controller holders like the Famicom?

13 Actors Who Played the Opposite Gender Pretty Well

Actors know that pulling off a role as the opposite sex will really impress the audience. As far as appearances go, it's pretty easy with proper hair and makeup -and sometimes a good shave. That just goes to show that there are more differences in appearance among men and women than between men and women. But acting the part when you don't have the experience of being the opposite sex shows some real acting chops. I've tried voice acting as a man and couldn't get rid of the feminine accent. But these actors did it, and did it better than we expected at the time. See a gallery of 13 opposite sex roles at TVOM.

Bring Back Those 90s Vibes With These Totally Tubular NeatoShop T-Shirts

Saving the World by DC Visual Arts

The 1990s are back in a big way, but did they ever really go anywhere? It's not like we stopped liking all the rad stuff we liked back in the 90s, so maybe we should call it a resurfacing rather than a revival.

Either way, if you're a fan of all things 1990s then you're going to love the NeatoShop, because we have so many 90s themed t-shirt designs it's bananas!

The 1990s introduced us to some great friends, like that crazy cat and dog dude who live next door

Mad Max Junior

Remember the guy that turned his kids' Little Tykes Cozy Coupes into Mad Max-style vehicles? It turns out he works in the film industry. Ian Pfaff took his daughter Junior and his infant son Benji out to the desert and let them loose. A few specials effects later, they've recreated the apocalyptic world of the car chase movie Mad Max: Fury Road.

(YouTube link)

Just like the movie, this is short on dialogue and heavy on mayhem. Uh-oh! -via Digg

Real Laws That Are Absolutely Absurd

Bureaucracy is a nightmare and it's not uncommon for stupid laws to become enacted even when they aren't ever actually enforced -or even can't be enforced legally. TopTenz recenly rounded up ten absolutely absurd laws (most of which are in the US) and you won't believe some of them. For example, in Utah, patrons can't see someone make their drinks because poor children might somehow be corrupted by witnessing someone make a martini, but not watching someone drink it. In 13 states, athiests can't run for office -except, they can according to the Supreme Court so none of these laws are valid.

So check out the full list of ten laws you won't believe are real over on TopTenz.

Rebel Chewie - Your Face Is A Mess


Rebel Chewie by Anderson Green Devil 

Chewie's friends were always calling themselves Rebels and claiming their war plans were created to stick it to The Man, but Chewie found their wardrobes drab and far from rebellious- so he decided to jazz them up. Oh, you didn't know Chewie was a clothing designer? Yeah, every Wookiee on Kashyyyk knows how to sew, but only a few of them have Chewie's fashion sense. Chewie went with a 70s rock star look for the the Rebellion, figuring it was about as far from the orderly Imperial look as you can get, and everyone but Luke loved the look. Leave it to Luke to rebel against the Rebels, no wonder he's the star of the show!

Add some rock edge to your geeky wardrobe with this Rebel Chewie t-shirt by Anderson Green Devil, featuring one fierce sci-fi design that will make your fellow fans go bananas!

10 Services You Never Knew You Needed

(Image credit: Alex Eben Meyer)

The perfect gift for the goat-loving, grandma-hogging adrenaline junkie in your life.

1. NOSTRIL-HAIR NOTIFICATION

Nasal hair stops dirt, bacteria, and other microscopic intruders from entering the body. But sometimes the bushy gatekeepers can go overboard. If you don’t have the nerve to tell a friend or loved one that his or her nostrils resemble overwatered Chia Pets, you can use the online service Chololi to send an anonymous email. Messages can be customized to be “mild” or downright “scornful,” though you’ll need to provide details identifying the offending nostril, and how many hairs are poking through.

2. LAWN-MOWING GOATS

Clearing land of annoying vegetation can be a headache, especially when it’s on a slope. Rent-A-Ruminant, a land management service in western Washington, offers a simple solution: Release a tribe of goats to gobble up the brush. “Goats are a pesticide-free, noise-free, emission-free, economical, efficient, and amusing way to cut and discard of dry grasses and invasive weeds,” the website states. Customers include Washington’s Department of Transportation and the U.S. Navy.

3. KIDNAPPERS-4-U

Young Orangutan Escapes from his Mother

A juvenile orangutan at the Jersey Zoo was caught trying to establish his independence from his mother. She was not having any of it. The scene played out like a sitcom, and got an appropriate soundtrack.

(YouTube link)

The dialogue is not difficult to imagine.

Mom: Come along, Junior, let's go.
Kid: Aw, Mom! I wanna play some more!
Mom: It's time for lunch.
Kid: But I have having fun!
Mom: Don't you want some nice greens so you'll grow big and strong?
Kid: Haha, you can't catch me!
Mom: Why you little… come back here!
Kid: I don't wanna!
Mom: Don't make me climb up there!
Kid: Haha!
Mom: I swear, you are just like your father!

How Cults Brainwash their Members

Cults, totalitarian governments, abusive marriages: what they have in common is that someone gains total control over someone else through psychology. The shortcut term for this is brainwashing. Alexandra Stein was a member of one such cult, and later wrote about the process of brainwashing. Her PhD dissertation examined the tactics of a political cult called the Newman Tendency, which was run by Fred Newman.

Newman had controlled the group for more than 40 years before his death in 2011. After interviewing former members, I learned that group members were brought in through the various programmes, but were all mandated to enter therapy that they had to pay for. Gradually, they abandoned outside jobs and worked for the group, often off the books. They shared apartments, attended meetings late into the night, and restricted relationships with outsiders. Instead, many were set up in casual sexual relationships with other followers in a practice called ‘friendosexuality’. They were also assigned a ‘friend’ whose role was to monitor and criticise to keep them in line. Those with money were soon parted from it. Some women in the group were told by Newman to have abortions, and few had children while involved.

The Newman Tendency, like The O, fit the five features of a totalist system I had identified based on Arendt and Lifton’s work.  The first of these characteristics is that the leader is both charismatic and authoritarian. Without charisma, the leader would be unable to draw people to him or herself. Without authoritarianism, leaders would lack the internal motivation and the ability to bully and control followers. ‘Yeah, somebody taught him how to abuse people,’ a former follower said of Newman. ‘He’s charming, too … If he sat down right there next to me, I’d say: “Hey Fred, how are you doing? Are you still corrupting people? … Are you still screwing 18 women at the same time?” … But you know, he was a likeable guy!’

Not all leaders want to get rich, gain sexual favours, or grab political power. But all want utter control over others. Money, sex, free labour or loyal combatants are all fringe benefits, and certainly most leaders take advantage of these, some in a big way. But absolute control over their relationships is the key.

Stein addresses the other four features of a totalist system that yields compliant followers at Aeon. And ways of breaking out of such a system. -via Digg

Journalists Mistake College Professor For Fashion Mogul, Their Pics Help Launch Her Modeling Career

Sometimes when we're dressed to impress, looking good and feeling fine we project an air of success that people mistake for actual success and fame, which may make journalists take notice.

A few years back a professor from Fordham University named Lyn Slater experienced the effects of fabulousness emissions when she was noticed by a photographer while she waited for a friend near Lincoln Center.

This was during Fashion Week, so journalists were out in full force covering the event happening at Lincoln Center, and when they saw Lyn they felt sure she was a fashion industry bigwig:

“The photographers surrounded me and began taking pictures,“ recalls Lyn. ”Two Japanese journalists began asking questions. Tourists started gathering and taking videos and photos on their phones, thinking they had come across a major figure in the fashion industry. I was confused, but it was at that moment that my friend arrived, and we started laughing at the situation. She said to me, ’Wow, you’ve unexpectedly become a style icon.’ “

Red. Enough said.#AgeIsNotAVariable #internationalwomensday #girlpossible #iwd2017 #womenfashion #woman #red

A post shared by Accidental Icon (@iconaccidental) on Mar 8, 2017 at 5:39am PST

Now the 63-year-old professor is also a professional model represented by Elite London and she has her own fashion blog called Accidental Icon, where she teaches young people "age is not a variable" when it comes to looking good.

Former Disney Employees Discuss the Craziest Things They Saw on the Job

Disneyland may be the "happiest place on earth for visitors," but for employees, things are different. Over on Reddit, past Disney park employees recently discussed the most outrageous things they ever saw on the job. For those who think the Mouse represents a squeaky clean image, you might be surprised what those employees have seen. For example:

I worked on a ride where there was a holding area before the main room and ride. One night before close, apparently a guest had taken a shit in the holding room and everyone else tracked it through out whole queue and ride. We had to close early and every inch of our whole ride was sanitized that night. A guest seriously asked me, "There's poop on my flip flops... what do I do...?"

Many employees start off innocent when they come in, but then things like this change that:

[My] manager that told me I wasn't happy or cheerful enough so I should come in early to do a line of "pixie dust" before work. I showed up early to be a smartass, walk into her office and found her and a server doing lines of cocaine off the counter. I transferred as soon as I could but it was the same stuff in all the other areas as well. Disney still holds the title of most exciting job I've had. Over those 6 years I was assaulted, groped, bribed, spit at, whored out, and drugged. It was my sex, drugs, rock and roll experience.

You can read the full list of Reddit stories here, but be warned that many of the stories are NSFW.

Wayward Black Bear Breaks Into Home, Inadvertently Plays The Piano

Animals who play instruments on purpose are cute, and some of them seem to have genuine musical talent, but it's even cuter when a critter accidentally plays an instrument because they don't know what it is.

Security cameras caught this video of a black bear breaking in to the Vail, Colorado home of Katie Hawley, and the scene was not very fun or amusing to watch at first.

But then the bear inadvertently tickled the ivories and made the whole thing adorable again, although the humor was lost on homeowner Katie, who still fears another ursine home invasion.

When the Bus Stop Button is Broken

Some municipal buses just drive by a bus stop if there's no one waiting to get on. If you need to get off the bus there, you ring a bell or push a button to let the bugs driver know. This bus in Halifax, Nova Scotia, had a non-functioning button, so they installed temporary workaround.

Meanwhile, in Mexico, this technology has been in use longer, so they know they should install the chicken out of reach of children. Genius!

A Spaghetti Western Score Style Cover Of Michael Jackson's Billie Jean

Billie Jean is one of Michael Jackson's most well known songs, and the music video for the track is still considered one of the most iconic music videos of the 1980s.

Like all classic songs from the 80s Billie Jean is just begging to be remixed, revisited and covered in a different musical style, maybe big band style?

Nah, that would never work, but guitarist Steve Onotera shows us Billie Jean sounds really cool when covered in the style of a Spaghetti Western score!

A Surgeon's Secret

Dr. Mary Austin of Children’s Memorial Hermann Hospital in Houston, Texas, performs surgery on babies still in the womb, in order to correct a birth defect before birth. The surgery is delicate, as the patient is unbelievably tiny and the organs and nerves can be like tissue paper.    

The birth defect is called spina bifida. Untreated, it can cause a range of disabilities, from incontinence to learning difficulties to an inability to walk. But the surgery carries some risks, too; it can send the mothers into premature labor, months before their due dates — and there’s no guarantee it will prevent physical disabilities in the baby.

Austin, a pediatric surgeon, helps counsel couples through that agonizing decision. She walks them through the potential risks and benefits. She describes each step in the hours-long surgery, from slicing open the uterus to closing the gap around the spinal cord with tiny stitches through developing fetal tissue so fragile, it’s almost “like tissue paper,” she said, vulnerable to tearing.

What she doesn’t tell them: She herself has spina bifida.

Austin kept her spina bifida a secret from most people until now. At one time she was expected to never walk, and although she proved the experts wrong, she does still suffer some disabilities from the defect. Knowing what spina bifida can mean for her patients gives her some insight into what parents go through when they find out their child may have it, but she does not pressure anyone into prenatal surgery. She doesn't even reveal her own spina bifida to them. Read about Mary Austin, her life with spina bifida, and her work to fix it for others, at STAT. -via Metafilter

Bodybuilder Shot With Over 1000 Paintballs

Contrary to popular belief not all bodybuilders are macho meatheads, but those who fit the stereotype seem to think increasing muscle mass through intense exercise makes them invincible.

These beefcake brutes soon discover they're still human after all when they do something incredibly dangerous and dumb- like letting people shoot you with over 1000 paintballs.

But Houston Jones doesn't (just) do it all because he's a meathead- he does it for the thrills, and the subscribers.

5 Reality Shows That Screwed Over Their Contestants

Queen for a Day was a show that began on radio in 1945, and jumped to TV from 1956 to 1964. It was revived in 1969-70, and had a couple of specials and a movie in between. The idea was heartwarming: to give a down-and-out woman her dream come true. But the reality was that several women competed for the worst hardship story, and the audience selected a winner, who received gifts from sponsors, such as modern appliances, money for medical care, or a vacation. It was essentially the beginning of "poverty porn."   

So debasing yourself for a chance at a better life is nothing new. This show asked women, working housewives, what they would wish for in order to make their lives and those of their families better. Women would break down sobbing and go so far as to beg just to procure amenities for their family that were desperately needed while being viewed by a studio audience. Mothers and wives are usually willing to do what it takes to keep their family safe and secure, but banking on human misery seems to be pushing it too far.

But Queen for a Day was way back when. Since reality shows took over TV, there have been many reality game series that left their contestants worse off. Read about four more at TVOM.

A Video Analysis Of Whether The Human Centipede Is Meaningless Or Meaningful

Fans praised The Human Centipede for its unique concept and fresh take on body horror, but the film's gimmick was too disgusting for many people to handle- and the next two films were even grosser.

So film analyst Georg Rockall-Schmidt couldn't help but wonder- did The Human Centipede trilogy actually have something to say, or were they made for pure shock value? (NSFW material)

Angry Neighbors and the Notes They Write

Unless you live out in the country, surrounded by empty land, you have to be considerate of your neighbors. Failing to do so may lead to someone leaving a note or sign, especially if they aren't sure who the perpetrator is. Check out the variety of angry notes left in public to address these concerns. The biggest part of them deal with people who don't clean up after their dogs, but noise and parking space disputes are common. Some notes contain NSFW language. Read 34 of them all at Some ECards.

An Animated Fan Film For The Pot Smashing Rupee Collector In All Of Us

People have made all kinds of comics, short films and cartoons about the mighty Link and his quest to save Hyrule, and they're all great fun to check out- but they're also all missing a little something.

So which magical element of the Legend Of Zelda games do the artists paying homage to the games nearly always forget to include? The activity I spend hours doing every time I play a Zelda game- smashing pots for rupees.

The Love Life of W.C. Fields

Neatorama presents a guest post from actor, comedian, and voiceover artist Eddie Deezen. Visit Eddie at his website or at Facebook.

"Women are like elephants to me; I like to look at them, but I wouldn't want to own one."

-W.C. Fields (William Claude Dukenfield) 1880-1946

W.C. Fields is a comic icon in movie history. Critics rank him with Charlie Chaplin, Buster Keaton and the Marx Brothers in the upper echelons of motion picture comedy. His classic movies include Million Dollar Legs (1932), Tillie and Gus (1933), The Bank Dick (1940), My Little Chickadee (with Mae West) (1940) and Never Give a Sucker an Even Break (1941).

W.C. Fields spent much of his boyhood in poverty and as an adult was constantly in fear of being broke. As a result, his girlfriends found him a tight man with a dollar.

On April 8, 1900, at the age of 20, Fields married for the first and only time. Her name was Harriet "Hattie" Hughes. Hattie worked alongside Fields in his vaudeville juggling act as his assistant. In the act, Fields would humorously blame her when he made a mistake.

Hattie was well-educated and tutored Fields in reading and writing (his own education had been very limited). The couple had a son together in 1904 named William Claude Fields, Jr. Although Fields was devoutly anti-religion, because of Hattie's influence, he agreed to have his son baptized.

This Photo Series Breaks 43 Of The Most Ridiculous Laws In America

You don't have to be a total rebel to know stupid and incredibly outdated laws are made to be broken, and in times when the powers that be keep trying to make laws to limit our personal freedoms it's time to resist.

Photographer Olivia Locher wants her rebellion against dumb, antiquated laws to be on the record, so she created a series called "I Fought The Law" which illustrates how utterly moronic these laws are.

At the top we have Alabama's law against having an ice-cream cone in your back pocket, above we have Ohio's law against disrobing in front of a man's portrait, and below we have Oklahoma's crazy law against people making love to their cars.

Lawmakers have way too much time on their hands if they think these laws need to be on the books!

An Honest Trailer for Power Rangers

Did anyone go see the movie Power Rangers when it was released back in the spring? I guess so, since the movie performed a little better than expected, but it was never expected to be a blockbuster. Critical response was meh. Screen Junkies knows what the problem was: the movie was too serious about the adventures of five teenage superheroes in matching costumes.

(YouTube link)

The producers didn't seem to realize that the franchise's silliness was a big part of its draw. Too bad. Instead of a action-comedy, they ended up with a teen drama crossed with a doughnut ad. Enjoy some hard-hitting criticism of Power Rangers in the latest Honest Trailer. -Thanks, Jill!

Incredible Examples Of Animal Camouflage

(Image Link)

Animals and insects have an amazing array of offensive and defensive tools at their disposal, and whether predator or prey they all try to maintain a low profile when they're hanging out in the wild.

The best tool to use when you want to remain unseen is natural camouflage, so you blend in with the plants and trees and coral reefs around you.

(Image Link)

Natural camouflage works so well it even hides creatures from our scrutinizing human stare, making it really hard to tell whether that's a tree bark colored owl or a chunk of tree bark pretending to be an owl.
