The Apple Human Hamster Wheel

Redditor studercinema said his school recently got a new shipment of iMacs, and this is what they did with the boxes. The redesigned space-saving boxes lend themselves well to a 36-iMac human hamster wheel. However, unless you get a mass shipment of computers, you should save the box in case you ever move your household or sell your computer.

This must be a wealthy school district. My kids’ school asks them to bring their own devices, and asks for donations of old equipment for students who don’t have one, and for the elementary computer labs. There aren’t any two computers in the lab that match.

That Time Tim Burton Showed Pee-wee Herman How to Hold a Fistful of Snakes

It's been 30 years since Pee-wee's Big Adventure was released way back in 1985, and what better way to celebrate than with some behind-the-scenes photos that have never seen by the general public?

Pee-wee Herman released a set of neat-o photos from the movie, which was directed by Tim Burton (his film directorial debut, no less). This photo above shows Tim Burton holding a bunch of snakes while Pee-wee looked on. It's from the Fire in the Pet Store scene, which you can see after the jump:

Taco Belle

Master costumer Olivia Mears once made a dress out of Taco Bell taco wrappers and, on another occasion, ordered a meal at Taco Bell while cosplaying as the Disney princess Belle from Beauty and the Beast. Now, carrying that theme forward to its spicy conclusion is her Belle dress that makes it look like the mad scientists at Taco Bell have finally gone too far. Her Taco Belle dress is a wonder of satin and dry lettuce.

Bonus item: you can see Mears appear costumed in a Taco Bell commercial here.

He's Probably Going to Get Yelled At for Drinking Water Without Permission in Boot Camp

Redditor nsandz submitted this photo of poolees getting a preview of what the US Marine Corps boot camp would be like! I'm sure the drill sergeant instructor would yell at the guy for taking an unauthorized drink of water, or for getting his shirt wet.

The Pluto in Pluto

NASA's New Horizons probe is revealing pictures of the most distant planet in our solar system with unprecedented resolution. Many people are seeing other images in the scarred surface of the planet. You can find an excellent list of them at BuzzFeed.

But I think that Rob Beschizza and Heather Johanssen of Boing Boing have discovered the most truly startling find: the Disney character Pluto (for whom the planet was named, as that company owns it) appears in the surface of Pluto. I'm deeply impressed with Disney's imagineering here.

An Awkward Family Dinner

This is not a movie set, or anywhere near one. This is not Asgard. Redditor GavinWakeUpCall posted this picture, taken by a friend, of a scene at the Broken Yolk Cafe in San Diego, where Comic Con is going on. These guys have Thor and Loki down to the smallest detail, even the not-talking-to-each-other part. I wonder if the waitress had any trouble moving Thor’s hammer to set their plates down. And another question: what do Norse gods order at a diner?

Photographer Steve Hughes spotted this inventive public display at a park in Boulogne-sur-Mer, France. Marigolds appear to flow out of the uncapped tube of paint. Any artist would love to possess such a magical paint!

What You Gonna Drive? Behold the New Ecto-1 from the Upcoming Ghostbusters Movie

Ecto-1 via @Paul Feig

It's been more than thirty years since the release of original Ghostbusters, so forgive us for being a bit excited about the upcoming Ghostbusters reboot, slated for release in July 2016.

The movie's director Paul Feig has been teasing the world with drips of photos of various Ghostbusters posted on Twitter. The latest photo is of the iconic Ecto-1 - this time more looking like a hearse than the original ambulance (what's up with that giant yellow siren?):

And check out the hood ornament of the new Ecto-1:

Joker Hand Mask

Why so shy? Don't hide behind your hand, even if it is so perfectly painted.

A friend of a redditor with an unrepeatable username painted Heath Ledger's Joker onto his hand. It's perfectly proportioned to serve as a mask. Later in the thread, he links to several other works by the same artist, most of which are painted sneakers.

Read and follow the instructions provided by the manufacturers of your clothing. They're usually correct. And even if they don't immediately apply to taking care of your clothes, the advice is still sound. Pandas are not for slapping.

22 Words rounded up 25 of the silliest washing instructions provided on clothing tags. Someone at these factories has a sense of humor.

Edit 7/8/15: More at funny clothing tags at Bored Panda.

At Captain Kirk's Funeral

"Never tell me the odds!" seems to be the apt sci-fi quote to apply in this situation as described by The Gentleman's Armchair.

If I remember correctly, that quote was spoken in one of the last seasons of Star Trek by Han Solo, while piloting Serenity and running away from the Cylons. Yes, I'm sure that's it!

Senior Quote: High School Was Easy

High school was easy. Just ask this high school senior, who said what he thought of his high school experience for posterity in his yearbook quote:

"High school was easy. It was like riding a bike. Except the bike was on fire & the ground was on fire & everything was on fire because it was hell."

Wait till real life, kids. Wait till real life.

Should've Used Ragu

Mom's dealing with morning sickness, Dad's facepalming nearby, and their daughter proudly holding a jar of Prego pasta sauce. It can only mean one thing: it's a clever "we're pregnant" announcement made just for the Interwebs (or is it an anti-advertisement warning you to stay away from a certain pasta sauce?)

The Mysterious Coffin Man of Lake Burley, Australia

Photo: Jeanne Mclauchlan

He's not the ferryman Charon and that isn't the River Styx, but you get the picture.

Paddlers on Lake Burley in Canberra, Australia, spotted a man dressed as an undertaker in a stand-up paddle board that looks like a coffin decorated with bright plastic flowers. "In the distance, as we came towards the Carillon we noticed a figure emerge from the thick fog," paddler Jeanne Mclauchlan told The Canberra Times, "It was a figure of a man dressed in a tuxedo and top hat on a stand-up-paddle coffin, complete with flowers, paddling toward us."

And where exactly is the mysterious man going?

"We asked 'coffin man', 'Where are you going?' His response was 'To Queanbeyan cemetery as I have a 3pm grave site to prepare'."

See if you got the right answer:

Crow Rides on the Back of an Eagle

Photographer Phoo Chan spotted this incredible scene in Seabrook, Washington. A crow landed on the back of a bald eagle in mid-flight and rode there briefly. The eagle did not seem to object and the crow flew away after a short time. You can see more photos of this encounter at the Daily Mail.

This Strawberry Looks Like a Chicken

(Photo: Grove Farm)

Reuben and April Welch of Grove Farm in Bonnyrig, Scotland grow strawberries. While harvesting their crop this summer, they spotted this unusual fruit. The strawberry looks like a plump chicken, especially after placing a bit of leaf on one side to serve as a beak. They quipped, "Going to have to eat this chicken as it hasn't laid a single bloody egg yet."

Blind Date with a Book

Photo via reddit

Don't judge a book by its cover ... judge them by these cryptic keywords, instead! A bookstore in Amsterdam wrapped a number of books in plain brown paper and taped hints like "Science-Fiction," "Ambiguous Utopia," "World Without Government," and "Brilliant Physicist" to help you guess the books inside.

"Try a blind date with a book!" The sign above the bin said, "With only the keywords as hints you can't judge these books by their cover. Purchase the book at the counter and unwrap. A great way to discover new books."

See if you can guess the titles of the books in the photo above.

World's Laziest Sign Spinner

Have you ever seen a skilled sign spinner on the side of the road performing near-acrobatic stunt with enthusiasm and zeal? Well, this guy is the opposite of that!

My wife and I ran into a sign guy sitting comfortably on a lawn chair reading a book while holding a giant sign to advertise a local business nearby. But he's probably just as effective as the guy who twirls his sign, while expending a fraction of the energy. After all, you can't beat a giant red arrow with the word "Tacos." Those things practically sell themselves!

Sale Tag Dress

Last year, fashion designer Jeremy Scott developed a series of dresses for the Moschino fashion house. They include this eye-catching dress that looks like a sales tag. It's a critique on consumerism. I'll wait until it reaches the clearance rack before considering it again.

Giant Sawblade Cuts into Car

(Photo: The People's Daily)

Do you have enough to worry about right now? No? Well, then have I got a deal for you! From now on, you have to be afraid that whilst driving down the road, a 5-foot tall circular sawblade may fly at your car and almost cut it apart.

A man in Chongqing, China had the fright of his life when a sawblade in the back of a trailer hauled by another motorist flew out and cut 20 inches into his car, directly into the driver's side. The driver was uninjured, but, the Daily Mail reports, "he was barely able to stand up when he got out of the car because his legs were shaking."

Giant sawblades: they could be anywhere, waiting for you. Plan accordingly.

A Sidewalk Sign for Sidewalk Signs

How do you sell signs? With a sign! Everyone who took advantage of this offer already knew how effective the signs are. After all, it worked on them! The price may seem a bit high, but it includes custom sign printing, and you’ll end up with a weather resistant sign your business can use for years. I'm not really endorsing this particular sign sale, but several sign professionals at reddit gave details. You might find the same thing for less money, but not a lot less. -via Boing Boing

Why is This 1850s Marble Statue Sculpture Shows a Girl Looking at Her Smartphone?

Photo: Gail Worley / Worleygig

Actually, she's not ... but it's amazing how our modern brain interprets that situation, right?

Gail Worley of the awesome blog Worleygig (seriously, check it out) went to The Met and saw this 1855 marble statue "Indian Girl, or The Dawn of Christianity," by Erasmus Dow Palmer. Like many of us, she immediately thought "doesn't it look like she's checking her Instagram feed or catching up on Tweets?"

It turns out that the object that the Indian Girl was looking at is a crucifix, not a smart phone. Could've fooled us, though.
