Guy Asks Internet To Remove Kid From Photo, Gets The Photoshops He Deserves

Everybody knows better than to ask the internet for help Photoshopping a picture by now, and we've seen the droll dorkiness that makes the rounds after these poor victims have asked "for help".

So it's agreed that those who ask “for help” from the internet are doing so knowing full well what lies in store for their image, right?

Okay good, because I almost feel bad for the guy who asked the interwebs to remove the kid from the background of this romantic picture because people now think of him as a kid hating jerk!

Some of the 'shoppers were happy to help delete the kid from the pic by adding different kinds of dogs to the image

And then war suddenly broke out all around them...we salute you, Private Smoochface!

This Minion Body Wash Has One Horrifying Flaw

The Minions are drawn, modeled and rendered to be utterly adorable, but the one flaw in their character design is they still look horrifying when they bleed.

'If that blood is flowing out of an orifice the horror level increases, and seeing a Minion bleeding out of its eyes is something that's sure to stay with a child until well after they've started seeing a shrink.

Twitter user @AlsBoy, aka filmmaker and strong swimmer Ash Warner spotted this gruesome flaw in the Minions 3-in-1 Body Wash bottle design while soaping up in the shower, but at least the "blood" is strawberry banana scented!

Superman Toy Soars Over Victoria Park, With A Little Help From A Flying Drone

 photo drone-phantom3-flying-superman-barry-craig-1_zpsjz0bliy8.gif

Since nobody can seem to do Superman justice on the big screen these days director/retoucher/drone pilot Barry Craig has taken it upon himself to shoot the Superman film we need.

Barry attached a Superman action figure to the front of his Phantom 3 flying camera drone and let the Man of Steel fly free over Victoria Park in London.

(YouTube Link)

Now all Barry needs to do is add some supervillain figures, sound effects and CGI eye beams to the footage and he's got the makings of a scene for a new Superman film, or at least a part of a sketch for Robot Chicken.

Portrait Series Featuring Creepy Cosplay Characters Known As Dollers

Kigurumi is big time in Japan, with everything from mascots to cosplayers considered part of kigurumi, but there's one form of kigurumi cosplayer who is a bit creepier than the rest- the Dollers.

Some Dollers dress up to live out their anime fantasies, actually becoming their favorite characters thanks to a full latex mask, costume and zentai (spandex body suit). A lucky few actually get paid for their strange cosplay hobby, hired as entertainers for public events.

Photographer Laurie Simmons found herself fascinated by the world of Dollers, expressing her interest in the strange subculture through her portrait series “Kigurumi, Dollers And How We See”.

Laurie's striking images prove that no matter what you think of Dollers they make mighty memorable subjects for portraits!

The Original Inspiration for the Hulk Was a Mother Lifting a Car off Her Baby

(Image: Marvel Studios)

Hulk smash? Yes. But beyond that, Hulk save. The Hulk is male, but the original, real-life Hulk was a woman. Jack Kirby, the comic book artist who conceived of the Hulk, explained in a 1990 interview that an incident in which a mother rescued her baby by lifting a car off him was the inspiration behind the Hulk:

The Hulk I created when I saw a woman lift a car. Her baby was caught under the running board of this car. The little child was playing in the gutter and he was crawling from the gutter onto the sidewalk under the running board of this car — he was playing in the gutter. His mother was horrified. She looked from the rear window of the car, and this woman in desperation lifted the rear end of the car. It suddenly came to me that in desperation we can all do that — we can knock down walls, we can go berserk, which we do. You know what happens when we’re in a rage — you can tear a house down. I created a character who did all that and called him the Hulk. I inserted him in a lot of the stories I was doing. Whatever the Hulk was at the beginning I got from that incident. A character to me can’t be contrived. I don’t like to contrive characters. They have to have an element of truth. This woman proved to me that the ordinary person in desperate circumstances can transcend himself and do things that he wouldn’t ordinarily do. I’ve done it myself. I’ve bent steel.

How To Draw Mickey Mouse

Unless you're looking at an officially licensed Disney tutorial you'd better put your pencils and your eyeballs away and stop looking at the screen, now!

Just kidding, it's nothing more than an innocent comic drawn by a non-Disney artist, to be filed under "satire".

This silly yet oh so true comic by Mauricio Abril shows the not so fun side of that empire Mickey Mouse built, and I know more than a few NeatoShop artists will totally relate to the punchline!

Kids TV Shows That Were Perverted Behind The Scenes

Behind every kids show are a bunch of adults making the whole thing happen, and even though the show's contents are kept kid friendly the backstage crew setting is generally for mature audiences only.

It may come as no surprise that Full House had some totally raunchy moments going on behind-the-scenes, since Bob Saget and Dave Coulier are funny guys and Stamos is a certified Bad Boy.

But people getting it on and “experimenting” backstage while kids (and sometimes their parents) competed on the beloved game show Double Dare?

That just seems wrong, but in the words of host Marc Summers “There might have been a little experimentation going on there”, note he's using the 80s version of the term “experimentation”.

The Empire Strikes Back Trailer in the Style of The Force Awakens


(Video Link)

The trailers for the upcoming Star Wars movie The Force Awakens have a unique style noted for varied pacing and dramatic narration. They inspired Dan Flesher to edit scenes from The Empire Strikes Back into a new trailer. They make that movie look fresh, even at 35 years old. Compare it to this original trailer for Episode V.

Movies That Were Shelved Then Released Years Later

(Image Link)

Hollywood has some strange practices when it comes to releasing movies, and sometimes movie studios will spend months and millions of dollars making a flick only to leave it laying on the shelf.

Sometimes legal reasons keep a movie from being released, like the legal battle over distribution rights between Paramount Pictures and DreamWorks that kept the Eddie Murphy movie A Thousand Words on the shelf for four years.

(Image Link)

Films can also be kept out of theaters by bad test audience feedback, which surprisingly kept director Michael Roemer's film The Plot Against Harry on the shelf for twenty years.

(Image Link)

When Michael went to make a home video copy of his film for his kids the transfer technician laughed, and so did his kids, so he released the film he'd completed in 1969 to a much warmer audience reception in 1989.

Whether most of these movies should have been released at all is debatable, but filmmakers must feel crummy about pouring energy into projects only to have them locked away gathering dust instead of being shown to an audience.

"Humanized" Animal Characters From Video Games That Somehow Seem Wrong

Some of our favorite video game franchises feature anthropomorphic animal characters, which creators feel are easier for players to relate to than a normal animal would be.

(Image Link)

But when an animal character is "humanized" they often lose their appeal, and it becomes hard to tell who those human characters are supposed to be, since their animal forms were a big part of what made them recognizable in the first place.

Case in point- Koopalings and Bowser Jr. as humans:

(Image Link)

And then there are those sexy "humanized" versions of animal characters, which are not only less appealing than the original- they're downright creepy if you think about it!

(Image Link)

Who was hoping to see a sexy version of Chica the psychotic animatronic chicken from the Five Nights At Freddy's series? Ummm, maybe you're better off not answering that question...

Illustrator Visualizes Mental Illnesses As Monsters

Dealing with a mental illness means identifying and handling that little monster lurking around inside your mind, a monster waiting for the most inopportune time to make an appearance.

Illustrator Toby Allen decided to deal with his anxieties by imagining how they would look as monsters, visualizing these hard to describe (and even harder to understand) creatures that wreak havoc on our state of mind.

We first featured Toby's artwork here on Neatorama a few years ago, and since then he has reworked his original designs a bit and given more mental illnesses a visual life, along with a very internet appropriate disclaimer:

The artwork is not at all intended to make light of these conditions but instead is intended to give these intangible mental illnesses some substance and make them appear more managable as physical entities.

10 Fascinating Facts About Blade Runner

Harrison Ford stars in a Ridley Scott film based on a novel by Philip K. Dick. You can’t beat a pedigree like that. The 1982 film Blade Runner couldn’t help but become a classic of the sci-fi genre. Surely you’ll want to know some of the important facts behind the movie. For example: 

4. RIDLEY SCOTT DIDN’T READ THE BOOK ON WHICH IT’S BASED.

Blade Runner is (loosely) based on Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? by legendary sci-fi author Philip K. Dick. (It’s one of over a dozen movies based on his works.) But Scott didn’t read the book before making the movie: “I actually couldn’t get into it. I met Philip K. Dick later, and he said, ‘I understand you couldn’t read the book.’ And I said, ‘You know you’re so dense, mate, by page 32, there’s about 17 storylines.’”

5. PHILIP K. DICK HATED THE SCRIPT (AT FIRST).

Dick passed away before the film was completed, but he kept up with the script as it went through various permutations. He loathed Hampton Fancher’s original draft, saying he was “angry and disgusted” at the way it “cleaned my book up of all the subtleties and of the meaning … It had become a fight between androids and a bounty hunter.” A revised screenplay by David Webb Peoples brought Dick around: “I couldn’t believe what I was reading! ... The whole thing had simply been rejuvenated in a very fundamental way ... [The screenplay and the novel] reinforce each other, so that someone who started with the novel would enjoy the movie and someone who started with the movie would enjoy the novel. I was amazed that Peoples could get some of those scenes to work. It taught me things about writing that I didn’t know.”

Other bits of trivia address the question of whether Rick Deckard is a replicant himself or not. And there’s more about Blade Runner you’ll want to know at mental_floss.

If Star Wars Planets Were States

It may have been a long time ago, but Star Wars wasn't necessarily in a galaxy far, far away. If you live in the US, then the events of that great story may have taken place right around the corner. Bryam Dayley of Geek Tyrant argues that the major worlds depicted in the series are analogous to US states. For example, Endor is basically Oregon:

Besides Oregon's geographical similarity to Endor, it also has a cultural similarity. Specifically Portland's culture. Its inhabitants are furry little people completely out of touch with the rest of the galaxy. Sound familiar? Ewoks are just hipsters. Bearded people who want to get in tune with retro styles and the old ways.  They believe in natural remedies, grow organic plants, and irritate the hell out of a lot of people.  I honestly wouldn't be surprised if I went to Portland and a group of hipsters tied me up and planned to sacrifice me to some girl they worship as a goddess. Friggin Ewoks, man. Love 'em to death, but if I had to sit through The Ewok Adventure again, I think I'd kill myself.

What If Daniel Was Actually The Bully In The Karate Kid?

The Karate Kid seems like a straightforward feel good movie about an underdog overcoming obstacles, an uplifting story meant to inspire kids to never give up and, when in doubt, let loose with a crane kick.

But one fan theory shows that Daniel LaRusso may not have been the victim at all, and audiences may owe Johnny Lawrence a big apology.

(YouTube Link)

Director and film editor J. Matthew Turner analyzed The Karate Kid and found Danny's behavior less heroic and more like a kid doing the bidding of the demon sorcerer Miyagi.

Remember When You Loved Star Wars?

Target’s new Star Wars ad has no movie clips at all (okay, one tiny one), but will still get you excited about the December premiere of Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens. It relies on nostalgia, with clips of kids (and grownups) all joyously indulging in Star Wars glee.  

(YouTube link)

What’s this all about? Well, it doesn’t say in the ad at all, but the new toys and other merchandise accompanying The Force Awakens will arrive in Target stores September 4th. That gives us all plenty of time to clear the stores of Christmas gifts before the movie even opens. That way, it won’t matter a bit whether the film is any good or not. Still, no matter how you feel about merchandising, enjoy the video for what it is.  -via Time

Photographer Visits China's Abandoned Amusement Parks

China's economic boom created an urban development boom, and all kinds of structures started popping up across the country as hope for the urbanized future loomed.

This development boom proved to be somewhat illusory, so many of these half-built structures have been left to rot by their owners, sad reminders of development dreams past.

One of the saddest kinds of scrapped project structures is the abandoned amusement park, where the promise of familial happiness has gone to die.

Photographer Stefano Cerio visited some of China's most famous abandoned amusement parks, including Wonderland Amusement Park, for his photographic series Chinese Fun.

Chinese Fun plays out like an eerie tour of the park, with Stefano playing tour guide and showing off all the wonderful buildings and attractions that are now nothing more than a collection of crusty curiosities.

An Online Exploration Of Second Life's Virtual College Campuses

When the massively multiplayer online gaming trend was in full swing in the early to mid 00s a game called Second Life appeared with promises of “a 3d virtual world where you can be whoever you'd like and build and sell whatever you can imagine”.

However, most MMO players found Second Life's virtual world to be a bit too much like real life, which is exactly what those few remaining SL "residents" are looking for- a virtual life to live in addition to their own.

This realism even drew the attention of various colleges and universities, who built virtual campuses in Second Life hoping to take higher education where it had never gone before.

Fusion's Patrick Hogan took a trip into Second Life to see what's left of these virtual campuses, and his findings don't hold out much hope for the avatar based collegiate experience.

Celebrities Looking Sad At Disney Parks

Celebrities used to try a lot harder to maintain an image while out and about, putting on a happy face for the cameras that would occasionally want to take their picture.

But nowadays celebs are constantly hounded by paparazzi and therefore don't even bother trying to keep up appearances, and the paparazzi love nothing more than catching celebs looking crestfallen.

Apparently one of the easiest places to see a sad celeb is at a Disney Park, where dense crowds, crying babies and people constantly taking their picture makes even the happiest celeb a bit cross.

The Wondrous PC Creations Found At Germany's CaseMod Competition

PC case modding is serious business, with international competitions held and lots of money to be made by crafters who can turn drab desktop towers into unique works of art.

Case modding has also become a big part of many computer and video game conventions, where you don't have to be a household name in the case modding community to show off your skills.

The 14th German CaseMod Championship (DCMM) recently went down at Gamescom 2015, where the entries were broken down into five categories:

regular CaseMods, self-planned and self-constructed cases (CaseCons), consumer electronics recreated with a twist (CE Mods), Cases on the Move (Mods with moving parts), and the 24-Hour Challenge, where "two-member teams spend 8 hours a day, for three days, building a case from the same parts at the show."

The big winner was master modder Ali Abbas, who created the wonderfully complex "Ragnar's Revenge" CaseCon, which he shows off in this very comprehensive video:

A Day In The Life Of A Witcher 3 Village

When you visit towns in most roleplaying video game you're able to interact with a bunch of drones that are programmed to give a response to a few choice questions and wander about looking busy.

The game designers behind the Witcher series are working hard to bring the entire fantastic world the game is set in to life, including every person in every town, and Witcher 3 promised to deliver the most realistic experience yet.

But Kotaku UK's Rick Lane wasn't convinced, and after spending nearly 100 hours of playtime in game he decided to “dedicate an entire in-game day to walking around a single village, observing the population without interacting directly, and keep a detailed account of what I saw. “

Rick saw a good many strange things about the non-player populace in Witcher 3, including one thing that made him a bit concerned:

I don’t think children in The Witcher 3 sleep. Ever. They just sit and stare blankly at the wall, all night, every night.

An Honest Trailer for Mad Max: Fury Road

Sliced Deadpool Table

Instructables member Britt Michelsen is a chemical engineer specializing in computational fluid dynamics. She's also a fangirl with incredible crafting skills. In the past, we've seen her edible Harry Potter wands, pixelated trashcan, and dead Kenny doorstop. Now she presents to the world a table that looks like it's levitating. Deadpool has cut straight through 2 legs, but it's still standing. In fact, an adult can sit on it without difficulty. That's because the 2 cut legs are decorative. The table stays up because the other legs have metal reinforcements that connect to a plate beneath the rug.

The Strange Origins Of Seven Pop Culture Franchises

Knowing the origin of a pop culture franchise probably won't change the way you feel about the franchise, but if you're as obsessive about your favorite stories as I am then you'll probably do some digging.

Researching will uncover simple roots for many franchises, but then there are franchises like Predator, Super Mario Bros., A Nightmare On Elm Street and Gilligan's Island that have some pretty unusual origin stories.

The 'shrooms that make Mario grow up big and strong in Super Mario Bros. look just like amanita muscaria, the hallucinogenic mushroom, so the game could be seen as one big 'shroom trip. Gilligan's Island also has a fairly simple origin- the islanders represent the seven deadly sins.

A Nightmare On Elm Street started with a news story about a deadly nightmare killing young men in southeast Asia during the 1970s and 80s.

Wes Craven read a news story about a bunch of young men who died of SUDS (sudden unexpected death syndrome) in their sleep, combined that with a bully from his childhood and Freddy Krueger was born.

And last but certainly not least there's Predator- the Rocky sequel we never knew we wanted until we saw it in theaters. Predator started as a running joke in Hollywood that said Rocky would have to fight an alien in Rocky V to top Rocky IV.

The Sad Truth About Today's World, Illustrated

Some people make societal and political statements with music, videos or the written word, but Steve Cutts makes these statements with comic illustrations.

But don't let the word “comic” fool you, because the artwork Cutts creates is less silly slapstick statement and more cutting commentary.

These are illustrated images for the disenfranchised, the down on their luck crowd with a dreary outlook on life.

Steve is an animator, illustrator, sculptor and cake maker, but he doesn't let those positive elements of his life blind him to the harsh realities of the modern world, because he feels bringing attention to these sad truths is the best way to initiate change.

Celebrity Feuds That Lasted Entire Careers

The life of a celebrity seems really far removed from the norm, and that detachment from normalcy makes it easy to assume celebrities have their own tight knit club of rich people who entertain normal people for a living.

But celebrities are often battling for the same spotlight, which can lead to rivalries and bitterness towards their fellow celebs, so friendship is the last thing famous people want from other famous folks.

They're also trying to maintain a carefully constructed image, one which is hopefully scandal free, so some celebs end up feuding with their own family members just to distance themselves from their sibling's scandals.
