Baywatch Blunder

In case you didn’t know, there’s a new Baywatch movie now in production, starring the Rock and Zac Efron. You might have seen some well-staged publicity stills, but Zac Efron posted an outtake as well. It seems he was messing up the less-to-more-clothing progression, and tripped while trying to quickly get in the right spot. I think the second picture would easily bring more people to the movie, but this scene probably didn’t end up in the movie this way. -via reddit

New T-Shirts from the NeatoShop:



He’s Had Enough

Police in Kensington, New Hampshire, arrested 29-year-old Joshua Tackett on charges of driving under the influence. The result was a priceless mugshot with Tackett grinning, barely able to hold his eyes open, and wearing a classic t-shirt for the occasion. Police Chief Scott Sanders arrested him Friday night. 

According to Sanders, who responded to the scene, Tackett crossed into the northbound lane and went off the road. He drove through a stonewall and a granite post before after striking a utility pole and getting tangled up the in the pole's guide wires.

His vehicle sustained major damage. The stonewall and granite post were also heavily damaged.

Tackett suffered minor injuries and refused medical treatment at the scene.

Tackett was released on a $750 bond, and presumably went home to await his viral fame. -via Arbroath

Potential New Names for an Elementary School

(Photo via Jenny Pancakes)

Robert E. Lee Elementary School in Austin, Texas is named after the famous Confederate general with that name. As the Confederate States of America was founded for the explicit purpose of preserving slavery, many people think that it is inappropriate to keep Lee Elementary's name. The school board has voted to rename the school and has asked the public for suggestions.

Among the potential new names are Donald J. Trump Elementary, Harper Lee Elementary, and Schoolie McSchoolface--a reference to the British ship that was to be named Boaty McBoatface.

One Tat to Rule Them All

Redditor djambithechocolates found a picture of The Lord of the Rings cast showing off the new tattoos they got when filming was completed in 2001. The tattoo is of the word “nine” written in Elvish. Yes, the little girl got one, too, although hers was inked on top of her skin with a pen instead of a needle. That’s Alexandra Astin, Sean Austin’s daughter, who appeared as Samwell’s daughter at the end of the trilogy. She’s nineteen years old now. No word on whether she ever got a permanent tattoo. Sean Bean also got the tattoo, but he was off doing other things by the time this picture was taken. See the tats a little clearer in pictures here.

Woman at Baseball Game Googles How Long It Will Last

Baseball is a game that consists of people standing on a field and, on rare occasions, throwing, hitting, or catching a ball. But mostly it's standing around. According to longtime baseball fan Tom Pettigrew, the typical game lasts about 2 to 3 hours. It only feels longer.

Twitter user Brad Gagnon was at a Toronto Blue Jays game. During the second inning, he spotted a woman in front of him seaching online to find out how much longer she would have to endure this purgatory.

My proposal: encourage players to move expeditiously by releasing hungry lions onto the field after an hour.

The Baker Lost Something

The bread is a bit crunchy now, but it can looks perfectly clear to eat. What's going on here? Chloe Bryan at Mashable comments:

We'd ask the baker to check Reddit, but we're not sure they can see a computer screen right now.

Tires on Sale

Okay, this deal gives you a lot of options. Which would you take? Maybe 25% off the full set, or maybe pay only 75%, but the buy three and get one free still seems like the best deal. However you parse it, giving the customer a choice is always the best way to go. This ad was spotted in Wellington, New Zealand.

The Golden Rule of Woodworking

(Photo: unknown)

Or, when in doubt, cut it a little too long. You can always take more wood off. You can't put wood back on.

Redditor PangurBanHammer brings us this photo. Many commenters offer similar pieces of advice for different professions, as well as amusing ways to teach them. Babygrenade talks about the measure-twice rule in cooking:

My chef friend had a new line cook that overcooked a steak. He told him to stick in the freezer to uncook it a bit. The line cook actually did and then forgot about it, so my friend replaced it with a raw steak before telling him to check on it.

A County Map of the US Made of 3,047 Wood Blocks


(Photo: Ben Graves)

Ben Graves, 80, stands in front of his enormous map of 3,047 counties and county-equivalents in the 48 contiguous states of the United States. It measures 8 by 5 feet across.

He's not an artist by trade, but he is a master of his craft. Graves is a retired oil refinery fire chief in Kerrville, Texas. His tranquility is to make wood county maps of states, which he often donates to local schools. My San Antonio reports:

“It's a hobby that I dearly love,” said Graves, whose father was a carpenter. “It's very relaxing. I have no music. No nothin'. Just me and my saw. Very relaxing.” […]

Graves pulled out all the stops for his latest project, a county-by-county map of the nation's 48 contiguous states made from more than a dozen types of wood, which he donated Monday to Kerr County.

The Discount Rules at This Frozen Yogurt Place Are Awesome

(Image via caross)

Mr. Yogato is a frozen yogurt restaurant in Washington, D.C. You can earn discounts on your tab pretty easily.

Question: do the discounts stack? For example, if I get a head stamp, deliver the Braveheart speech, Stump Steve on Seinfeld trivia, re-enact the "Thriller" dance, dress like Bjorn Borg, answer a trivia question successfully, sing "Mr. Roboto," and wear a kicball uniform, do I get my frozen yogurt for free?

We don't have these kinds of discounts at the NeatoShop. But according to legend, if you capture Alex Santoso, tie him up with a red rope, and tickle his belly 3 times, he has to grant you a wish.

Check Out This Beautiful Staircase That Looks Like Liquid Marble

(Photo: unknown)

Maxim Gorky was a Russian and Soviet writer. He was a Bolshevik, but became a sharp critic of the Communist regime shortly after the Russian Revolution. Nonetheless, the Soviet government gave him a luxurious house in Moscow, which is now a museum in his honor.

The house includes a beautiful Art Noveau marble staircase that looks like it's made of a liquid. It flows down the stairs, ending with a lamp shaped like a jellyfish.

These Boots Were Made for Dunking

(Photo: unknown)

Somewhere in the world, for the modern urban cowboy, there is the basketball boot. You can be the master of the court and corral for a mere $200.

These are apparently Tony Lama brand boots. Sadly, they appear to have been discontinued. It was inevitable, though. All the great cowboys eventually ride off into the sunset.

How to Correct a Badly Misspelled Tattoo

(Photo: unknown)

Tattoo needles don't come with built-in spellcheckers, so sometimes some corrective work is necessary. In this case, the creative solution was to treat the original like an assignment handed in to an English teacher. He's a bit a sloppy with his coffee cup, but his command of spelling is perfect.

Soda Hair

This clever girl has poured herself a cup of A&W brand cream soda. It flows out of the bottle as smoothly as well-conditioned hair.

I should try this on my own daughters' hair (while my wife is not at home). But to top this unknown girl's accomplishment, I'll do it with a 2-liter bottle.

Backyard Wildlife

Do squirrels, opossums, and stray dogs wander into your backyard in the night? Some neighborhoods have more exotic wildlife. Redditor elfmachine100 lives in Florida, and has a “game cam” set up. He “finally caught something cool” on it. This is a Florida panther, an endangered subspecies of cougar. It’s busy stalking a boar, but it is unknown whether the camera action interfered with the hunt. Since there are only around 160 Florida panthers left in the wild, he was encouraged to share the picture with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.

Disney's New Solar Farm Looks Like Mickey Mouse

(Photo: Near Map)

There are many hidden images of Mickey Mouse throughout Disney World. But you'll only see this one from the air. Disney World recently completed its largest hidden Mickey. It's a 11.5-acre arrangement of solar panels.

Disney worked with Duke Energy to develop the facility. It produces 5 megawatts, which is as much electricity as might come from 1,000 home rooftop solar energy systems. You can read more about it at the Orlando Weekly.

Brofist

Sure, in a legal sense, redditor schizophrenicwheel owns Magnus the tarantula. But they're actually just friends--bros, really. In the past, she gave him a birthday hat for an iguana's birthday party.

Then, a year ago, she gave him a plush stuffed tarantula as a toy. He responded affectionately with a brofist. That's a polite spider who stays up on modern etiquette.

Donut Hair

Impossible Dogs

Comic artist Grant Snider of Incidental Comics presents a purebred dog category of which even the most enthusiastic of canine enthusiasts were not aware. Hopefully the species in this breed group aren't actually impossible; I'd love to get an invisibeagle and train him to walk off-leash and attack on command. That would be a great way to ward off undesirables! Via Laughing Squid

What the Heck Is Going on in This Medieval Manuscript Illustration?

The Bodleian Library at Oxford houses a 1436 manuscript of Cosmographia Scoti. It is of either Italian or French origin. Among its many illustrations is this bizarre image.

What is it?

My best guess is that this drawing shows an amphibious assault craft used by cattle during a general bovine uprising. It's like a medieval Higgins boat. It was notably unsuccessful because the submerged ram in the bow tended to cause the boat to run aground too far out from the beach, thus exposing the cattle to longbow fire while they swam to the beach. In short, this design failed because it tried to do too much.

Cows are yummy, but they're terrible at naval architecture.

Man Returns Lost Wallet with Hilariously Honest Note

(Photo: Reilly Flaherty)

Reilly Flaherty went to a Wilco concert in Brooklyn, then took an Uber car home. At some point in that adventure, he lost his wallet. An anonymous person mailed back to him his driver's license and credit cards, but kept everything else. The thief included a sorry-not-sorry letter. It reads as follows:

Dear Reilly Flaherty

I found your wallet and your drivers license had your address so here's your credit cards and other important stuff. I kept the cash because I needed weed, the metrocard because the fare's $2.75 now, and the wallet cause it's kinda cool. enjoy the rest of your day

Toodles
Anonymous

Flaherty sees a bit of humor in the situation, but is also upset. He tells the New York Post:

He said in another lifetime, the two might have been pals.

“I would say, ‘Man, we would’ve gotten along — we’re both into Wilco — but you turned out to be super selfish,’ ” he said. “It speaks to the New York mentality: I’m going to be nice but there’s going to be an asterisk.” […]

Flaherty declined to say how much cash was taken, insisting, “It’s not really about the money.”

“Whether it was a dollar or a thousand, [this person] is a pot-smoking, modern-day version of Robin Hood,” he quipped.

An Artist's Fond Illustrations of Life Before and After Owning His Golden Retriever

Returning home

Those of us who own pets know that along with the joy and laughter they bring to our daily lives, we occasionally have to suffer inconveniences or make sacrifices in order to have them with us.

John is an Asian comic artist who lovingly documents his life before and after acquiring pets. His drawings show his life with two dogs and a cat, but the runaway star of the show is Maimai, his male golden retriever. Maimai, almost always depicted with a big smile on his face, is the animal whose mischief is primarily showcased in John's work. And regardless of the mischievous deeds, John's love for Maimai (and his other "furry kids" as he calls them) is clearly communicated, which is why they are so charming.

If you appreciate his drawings, I recommend you visit John's blog, which contains more of these before and after comics as well as adorable photographs of Maimai and other parts of John's life. You can also keep up with John and Maimai on social media via Facebook and Twitter.
