Disney Princess War

(YouTube link)

You have to admit that some Disney Princesses are more badass than others. Which ones are well illustrated in this sequence from Robot Chicken (sure, you could easily guess which princesses would hold a gun backward). Honestly, who in their right mind would think you could possibly put this many young ladies of royalty in one room and not expect it to get extremely catty in no time? It’s a good thing this was written before Frozen, because a war like this would be over in a second if one of the participants actually had superpowers! -via Geeks Are Sexy

Napoleon Dynamite And Pedro All Grown Up

If you’re dreaming of a sequel to the cult hit movie Napoleon Dynamite you’ll just have to go on dreaming, because chances are Napoleon, and his little politician pal Pedro, aren’t coming back to the big screen anytime soon.

However, if you're wondering what Pedro and Napoleon will look like when they're all grown up wonder no more:

It looks like our unlikely heroes are still best buds, and their unique taste in fashion hasn't changed much either, but how did the future incarnations of two fictional characters find themselves waiting in line at a Subway restaurant, circa 2014?

It probably has something to do with extraterrestrial ligers....

Raccoon Steals Bag of Cat Food

(YouTube link)

This little guy must’ve thought he’d stumbled on the Holy Grail of raccoon loot. He managed to make off with the entire 28-pound bag of cat food. That’s a strong raccoon!

Pro tip: Don’t leave an entire bag of cat food sitting on the lawn. Even if no one takes it, there will be rain sooner or later. That is, unless you’re trying to get a viral video of a raccoon thief, and feed all your downstairs neighbors at the same time. -via Arbroath

Fart Cannon

Fart, as you know, is a terribly effective weapon. It's only problem is aim and distance. You can't aim the bad smell and it's only effective in small areas. Until now.

Japanese prankster FARu ARuFa has created the Fart Cannon that lets you rip one towards an unsuspecting opponent far away.

First, you need a cardboard box and some tape:

Cut a round hole in the box to complete the air cannon, then test it out:

Success! Then, you need a hole in your pants ...

Back In The Day - Retro Listening Device Lessons


Back in the Day by Boots

Back in the day when the boombox ruled the block, cassette tapes were the best way to keep your jams ready to pop in the deck when it was time to get down. There was one problem with cassettes, one thing that made them impractical, and that was dealing with unspooled tape. When the tape deck tried to eat your cassette, and the ribbon came spilling out of the spool, you had to pull out your trusty pencil and wind it all back up again if you wanted to get on with the dance party!

Share a little old school ingenuity with the world by wearing this Back in the Day t-shirt by Boots, so the younger generations understand the struggle we used to go through to listen to our music.

Visit Boots's official website, Facebook fan page, Twitter and Tumblr, then head on over to her NeatoShop for more old school cool designs:

Buy My Barina

It looks like the maker of this video took notes from Castor, the Swedish art director we recently featured who created an epic video to help sell his old 93 Volvo Wagon, but the creator of Buy My Barina decided to go for less comedy and more slick, modern and sexy:

(Video Link)

The 99 Barina is like the Ford Fiesta of Australia, and generally not thought of as a very sexy car, but somehow the mysterious man behind Buy My Barina has succeeded in bringing the sex appeal to the little league helmet of cars.

What's more- he's auctioning off this hot little blue number for charity, with proceeds benefitting Cancer Council Australia, and whoever wins the car is going to get tired of explaining why they spent so much money on such a crappy car!

A Picture to Remember Her

A few days ago, Nathan Steffel (redditor steffel07) posted a heartbreaking request: "My daughter recently passed away after a long battle in the children's hospital. Since she was in the hospital her whole life we never were able to get a photo without all her tubes. Can someone remove the tubes from this photo?"



Sophia was born with a liver tumor, and was waiting for a transplant when she died from complications on July 10. She was six weeks old. Photoshop artists immediately went to work, and produced many versions of Sophia’s picture. Continue to see some of the highest-rated.

What Is It? game 336

It's Thursday, so you know what it means, Neatoramanauts: it's time for the What Is It? Game, brought to you by the wonderful What Is It? Blog.

What is this thing in the picture? Your guess can win you a free T-shirt of your choice from the NeatoShop! Here's how to play:

Place your guess in the comment section below. One guess per comment, but you can enter as many guesses as you'd like in separate comments. Post no URLs or weblinks.

You might know what it is, but if you want to win a t-shirt, you'll have to use your imagination, because we are going to select two winners who give us the funniest incorrect guesses. If you guess right, then good for ya - but you don't win anything, okay? So, it's up to you, creative people: you have twice the chance of winning that T-shirt.

Please write your T-shirt selection alongside your guess. If you don't include a selection, you forfeit the prize. We highly suggest you take a look at the NeatoShop's new selection of Funny T-shirts and Science T-Shirts.

Ready? Go for it! (Don't forget to visit the What Is It? Blog for more clues!)

Update: This is a J.C. Cox Coin Till, the main selling point for it was that it was supposed to stop mistakes and disputes about which coin was given in payment since coins from the last four transactions could be seen through the glass on the right side. The coins were dropped into a slot at the top and progressed down to the next level by means of a brass lever which moved from side to side. Finally the coins were retained in a locked box at the base. The shelves on the left were for counted stacked coins and the bowl was for miscellaneous coins.

My favorite coins are miscellaneous coins! That’s all very interesting, but your outlandish ideas were priceless! Berhard said:

An incubator for butterfly eggs and chrysalis... On the shelf you may store the chrysalis, while the butterflies may hatch inside the glass cabinet. The glass cabinet may protect the butterflies from being disturbed or eaten by birds or laboratoy cats...

In the bowel on the left buterfly food may be stored to be able to feed the newly hatched butterflies with honey or nectar.

And Chris Date had a great idea, too.

This is cat liquor cabinet. Back before the pet prohibition amendment, you could drink alongside your pets. Small bottles of rum and scotch as well as mixers could be stored on the shelves with the "top shelf" stuff locked up in the right. The built in mixing/drinking bowl was an optional accessory to these cabinets.

So both win a T-shirt from the NeatoShop! Great going, guys! Thanks to everyone who played this week, and thanks to the What Is It blog.

Wearable Technologies That We Need

(Gemma Correll)

Wearable technologies are all the rage these days. And it's not just Google Glass. There's the iWatch, the airbag suit, the birdcage dress, and more.

Gemma Correll is a cartoonist and, clearly, an innovative thinker. We need all of these wearable devices, especially the self-destructing fedora. I would suggest also building a top hat that self-destructs when worn in public with a t-shirt. That fashion trend really should end.

A Few Things You May Not Know About Saturday Night Live

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

Since it's debut in 1975, Saturday Night Live has probably been the most influential comedy series on television. It has spawned several stars and given us many great, unforgettable characters. Many of the show's illustrious cast members went on to successful movie careers, and many faded into obscurity. Here's a few facts you may not have known about Saturday Night Live.

The only two guest hosts whose episodes will never be re-run are Milton Berle and Louise Lasser, at the insistence of producer Lorne Michaels. Berle upset the entire cast during his hosting week. he called everybody “Boobie" and turned everyone off with his excessive mugging, racist jokes and egomania. (Supposedly, John Belushi, who worshipped Berle, was the only cast member who liked him.)

Lasser refused to do all skits and wouldn't come out of her dressing room on the night of the her show's broadcast. She finally came out at the last minute, just in time to deliver the opening monologue.

Chris Farley loved and idolized John Belushi. Farley would often get Belushi's pants from wardrobe and wear them during the show.

Randy Quaid is the only SNL cast member to have been nominated for an Academy Award before joining the cast.

Tina Fey was SNL’s first woman head writer.

Tim Meadows and Chris Parnell are the only two cast members to be fired and then re-hired the next season.

Abby Elliott, daughter of Chris Elliott, is the first cast member to be the child of a former cast member.

Terry Sweeney was the first openly gay cast member.

Ice Cream 3D Printer

You can print out designs in chocolate and pancake batter. The next great technological hurdle is ice cream!

To do this, MIT students Kyle Hounsell, Kristine Bunker, and David Donghyun Kim built an extruder that was chilled by liquid nitrogen. This kept the soft serve ice cream cold as it piled on the build plate.

This kind of project never goes right from the beginning. It's a new technology with unfamiliar challenges. So the team had to eat a lot of excess ice cream from failed projects, which presumably tastes better than PLA filament.

Much of the credit, though, should go to cartoonist Chris Hallbeck who first conceived of the idea of an ice cream 3D printer.

21 Big Dogs That Insist They Are Lap Dogs

If you look closely at this picture, you might notice that there’s a woman under all that dog. I’ve said it to my kids, and maybe you have as well: “You’re never too big to sit in Mommy’s lap.” That goes for dogs, too, because they love you, even when they become large enough to crush you! Jeff Wysaski at Pleated-Jeans collected photographs of 21 oversized dogs who still want a little lap time.

Giant Dead Parrot Sculpture Celebrates Monty Python



British television channel 
Gold has installed a 49-foot-tall, flberglass parrot (Norwegian Blue, no doubt) to commemorate the forthcoming broadcast of the “Monty Python Live (mostly)” farewell show. The parrot is from one of the most popular Monty Python sketches in history, as shown in the video below. 

The statue, resting peacefully in
Potter’s Field Park near the tower bridge in London, took three sculptors two months to construct. The parrot will be moved to 02 Arena for the final Monty Python live show. The performance by remaining Python members John Cleese, Michael Palin, Eric Idle, Terry Gilliam and Terry Jones will be presented on July 20th, 2014.

The Longest Known Fossilized Dinosaur Poop

This is coprolite--fossilized excrement. It dates back to between the Oligocene and Minocene Epochs, which makes it somewhere around 5.3 to 33.9 million years old. The poop was found in Lewis County, Washington State. The I.M. Chait auction house is selling it, estimating the price at between $8,000-10,000.

According to the auction house, it is a truly outstanding poop. It "boasts a wonderfully even, pale brown-yellow coloring" throughout its full "eye-watering 40 inches." It is a "truly spectacular specimen."

You can see from the picture that this is clearly true. This isn't just an impressive specimen, but a natural work of art.

Skydivers Land On Slip 'N Slide

How do you add extra excitement to skydiving? Try landing on a huge Slip ‘N Slide! That’s what skydivers Niklas Daniel and Brianne Thompson did in Arizona. It takes a lot of control to land just so after jumping out of a plane at 5,000 feet, and Daniel even caught it all on a GoPro camera as he slid the entire length of the plastic right into the grass. -via With Leather

For the First Time, A Woman Has Completed the American Ninja Warrior Obstacle Course

American Ninja Warrior is a television show that airs on NBC and the Esquire Network. The center of the show is a demanding obstacle course that requires phenomenal strength and agility. For six seasons, athletes have come to the show in search of fame and recognition of their abilities. This past week, for the first time, a woman completed the this brutal obstacle course.

Kacy Catanzaro if a 5-foot tall gymnast. Her height posed particular challenges, as many of the obstacles require a lot of reach. But Catanzaro, a former NCAA Southeast Regional Gymnast of the Year, had all of the strength and skill necessary to prevail.

The Cartoon Mascot Quiz

Tony the Tiger is a gimme, because they used that for a background image, but just about every food product marketed to children has a cartoon mascot, or did at one time or another. Test your knowledge of product mascots with a quiz at HuffPo. The only reason I did so well is because I’ve been around a long time, and because I guess well. The problem with this quiz is that it doesn’t tell you which questions you missed. -via mental_floss

What Happens to a Snake in Zero Gravity


(Video Link)

Today is World Snake Day. To mark the occasion, Jason G. Goldman of io9 describes how different animals respond to the microgravity that they experience on Vomit Comet aircraft. We've already seen spiders and cats respond to a situation that must be inexplicable to them. What about other species? Goldman writes:

Most animals perceive the weightlessness of microgravity as if they were falling upside down. If you drop a cat from a great height, for example, it will roll over to attempt to land on its feet. This is called the "righting response." In microgravity, this leads to repeated rolling-over.

Scientists have interpreted the repeated rolling-over as a repetitive righting response, since the animal never gets any feedback that the action was successfully executed. This behavioral pattern is common and has been observed for various mammals, frogs, and turtles in microgravity.

Snakes, however, often attack themselves or bunch up. This may be because a snake in microgravity has trouble distinguishing its own body from its surrounding environment:

In this study, the researchers loaded a bunch of snakes onto a Vomit Comet. These are planes that fly in parabolas: as the plane moves over the top of the curve, everything inside is temporarily weightless. At the bottom of the curve, it the pull of gravity actually feels a bit stronger.

Here's a video of one snake, Elaphe obsoleta, in microgravity. In the first parabola, the snake eventually knotted its tail and ceased all other body movements. In the second parabola the snake knotted its whole body and once again ceased moving while in microgravity. This posture was held through the next parabola and in the intervening time between the parabolas.

While the researchers didn't observe the self-attack behaviors seen previously, the knotting behavior that they did observe in many of their snakes still reflects a basic loss of proprioception. When snakes become stressed out, they sometimes bunch together in a group in order to relax. Which, in a way, is exactly what that airborne snake did in microgravity.

In the absence of gravity, it appears as if snakes have a difficulty distinguishing self from non-self.

[Emphasis added.]

Infographic Demonstrates That Nature Really Bites

Backpacking and hiking can be a fun, relaxing way to spend some quality time outdoors, and every nature lover knows it’s the best way to see critters up close and personal like.

That’s where the trouble begins- getting close to animals that see your presence in their neck of the woods as an intrusion, or a threat.

Bears, snakes, and mountain lions sometimes lash out at uninvited human visitors, and the little guys just love to bite too- spiders, ticks and scorpions are by far the biggest biters of the bunch.

Prepare for what may try to chomp down on you with this fully illustrated infographic created by Backpacker magazine, it’s handy to have around when you’re exploring the great outdoors, and it serves as a colorful reminder of why homebodies like to stay indoors…
