Psychedelic Panther - His Combat Abilities Will Blow Your Mind!

Psychedelic Panther by Albertocubatas

The people of Wakanda had been waiting for a hero like the Black Panther to take them out of their isolationist shells for quite some time, in fact they'd been waiting so long some Wakandans were still wearing their old psychedelic gear from the 60s when he finally showed up. There were bell bottoms and dashikis a plenty, and afros as far as the eye could see, and a few of the Wakandans were even wearing those weird two-colored sunglasses, which really tripped T'Challa out. So when the Panther took the mantle and agreed to rule Wakanda he declared their first mission to be a fashion update- so he took everyone to the mall for some new threads!

Add some vibrant superheroic energy to your geeky wardrobe with this Psychedelic Panther t-shirt by Albertocubatas, it's an unique way to show love for your favorite MCU hero from Wakanda!

The Nuclear Explosion Simulator

Have you ever wondered about the effects of a nuclear bomb going off in your city? Of course you have, unless you were born after the end of the Cold War. And even if you were, you may have thought about it at one time or another. A new simulator from the Outrider Foundation lets you pull up a map by city name or ZIP code, select a bomb, and it shows you how far the fireball, radiation, shock wave, and heat would reach, and how many people would be killed. There are four bombs: the 15-kiloton Little Boy from World War II, the 150-kiloton North Korean Hwasong-14, the 300-kiloton W-87 from the US military, and the 50,000-kiloton Tsar Bomba. You can even specify whether the bomb detonates on the surface or in the air. Dropping Little Boy over my town would kill everyone in the city limits. The image above shows the effects of Tsar Bomba on New York City.  -via Digg

Jeff Goldblum Answers The Web's Most Searched Questions About Him

Jeff Goldblum is one of the least afraid actors in Hollywood, and his effortlessly cool demeanor makes me think he must be a descendant of Fonzi and therefore quite magical to hang out with.

But since I'll probably never get to meet the guy, much less hang out with him, I'll have to get to know him by watching this fun Autocomplete Interview video by WIRED instead.

That way I can find out fun facts about Jeff, like the fact that he has two sons and does not in fact have a stutter, and the video also answers one of the most important questions of all time- does Jeff Goldblum song? Why yes, he does song!

10 Technologies We Stole From the Animal Kingdom

People have been lifting ideas from Mother Nature for decades. Velcro was inspired by the hooked barbs of thistle, and the first highway reflectors were made to mimic cat eyes. But today, the science of copying nature, a field known as biomimetics, is a billion-dollar industry. Here are some of our favorite technologies that came in from the wild.

1. Sharkskin—The Latest Craze in Catheters

Hospitals are constantly worried about germs. No matter how often doctors and nurses wash their hands, they inadvertently spread bacteria and viruses from one patient to the next. In fact, as many as 100,000 Americans die each year from infections they pick up in hospitals. Sharks, however, have managed to stay squeaky clean for more than 100 million years. And now, thanks to them, infections may go the way of the dinosaur.

Unlike other large marine creatures, sharks don't collect slime, algae, or barnacles on their bodies. That phenomenon intrigued engineer Tony Brennan, who was trying to design a better barnacle-preventative coating for Navy ships when he learned about it in 2003. Investigating the skin further, he discovered that a shark's entire body is covered in miniature, bumpy scales, like a carpet of tiny teeth. Algae and barnacles can't grasp hold, and for that matter, neither can troublesome bacteria such as E. coli and Staphylococcus aureus.

Brennan's research inspired a company called Sharklet, which began exploring how to use the sharkskin concept to make a coating that repels germs. Today, the firm produces a sharkskin-inspired plastic wrap that's currently being tested on hospital surfaces that get touched the most (light switches, monitors, handles). So far, it seems to be successfully fending off germs. The company already has even bigger plans; Sharklet's next project is to create a plastic wrap that covers another common source of infections—the catheter.

Bear Tree Webcam

Glacier National Park in Montana has several webcams set up in important places. One is focused on a cottonwood tree that black bears use as a den, so that we can see them as they slowly emerge from winter hibernation. One webcam is focused on a large hole that bears occasionally stick their heads out of. Another webcam is further back, so you can see how far up the tree that hole is. The images refresh every minute or so. If you don't see a bear when you check it, the park's Twitter feed will have sightings.

Wearing a 19th-Century Mourning Veil Could Result in Death

Victorian era etiquette was rigorous, and the rules and rituals one had to follow after a death in the family were particularly strict, even though they were only enforced by social pressure. A widow was expected to grieve for two and a half years, with her activities, dress, and demeanor proscribed in every detail. That included wearing black crape, a stiff, heavily-dyed type of silk, with a veil to hide her tears. These requirements made some fabric and clothing manufacturers rich, but they weren't so great for the widows who had to wear the veils. They were hot, heavy, scratchy, restricted one's vision, and were full of toxic chemicals.    

By the 1880s, medical journals had begun a discussion about the health effects of heavy crape veils. The New York Medical Journal decried “the irritation to the respiratory tract caused by minute particles of poisonous crape,” while a syndicated column from the North-Western Lancet declared the mourning veil “a veritable instrument of torture” in hot weather, staining the face and filling the lungs with toxic particles. Doctors speaking of poisonous fabric were not being hyperbolic: Many of the substances used to color and treat crape were seriously toxic, and as the 19th century progressed, the dyes in use only became more dangerous.

The Greatest Songs From The Simpsons

The Simpsons isn't a musical show per se, since not every episode features a musical number, but over the last three decades the show's creators have treated us to some great original songs that really get stuck in your head.

(YouTube Link)

Songs like "Baby on Board", "Who Needs The Kwik-E-Mart?" and "See My Vest" stick with you seemingly for the rest of your life, lying dormant in your brain until you hear a few verses sung or read about them on a list such as this.

(YouTube Link)

And let's face it- as far as earworms go I'd rather have "Baby on Board" bouncing around inside my head than some cheesy modern pop song created using the same algorithms that gave the Bieber-bot sentience.

17 Real Job Interviews That Went Completely Off The Rails

When you go for a job interview, you start out with the attitude that you need to impress the people at that company. Are you good enough to get this job? But then you realize that you are also finding out about the business and the people you'll be working with, and if you go to enough interviews, you'll run into at least one that's completely bonkers.

The good news is that, even if you are offered the job, you can always say no. Check out a list of reader-submitted horror stories about job interviews from their past at Cracked.

The Marshalls

The Marshalls have an ordinary last name but they are far from an ordinary family, but it's not their big bug eyes, unusual fashion sense or lack of conversation that makes them strange- it's the dark secret they have locked away in the basement.

The Marshalls is a stop motion animation short created by Adeena Grubb, with music by Daniel Beja, and what it lacks in depth of story it makes up for with some super creepy vibes!

The Angry Monkeys

The Fermi Paradox asks the question of why we haven't found extraterrestrial life, considering the billions of planets in the universe. There are plenty of possible reasons, but the idea is that the rest of the intelligent species of the galaxy just don't want to be around us is as good as any. Or maybe they just haven't gotten around to exterminating us yet. This comic is from Zach Weinersmith at Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal.

What Do Dogs See When They Watch TV?

My dog doesn't care much for TV unless there are noisy birds on the screen, but other dogs I've had would sit on the couch with me and watch TV like little humans, paying closer attention to the shows on the screen than I did.

Their canine channel surfing always made me wonder how much they were actually seeing of what was happening on the screen- were they actually watching shows or just following sound and movement?

Hank Green answered this age old question on this episode of SciShow, explaining how a dog's TV watching habits may vary by breed and discussing how a dog's eyes, which are more attuned to flickering yet see less colors, see TV differently than you and me.

Ottomatic Zen - Don't Just Drive The Bus, Be The Bus

Add some animated chill to your geeky wardrobe with this Ottomatic Zen t-shirt by Ilcalvelage, it's a high-larious way to show some love for your favorite bus driving buffoon!

I Awoke

Imagine waking up with no recollection of who you are, where you are or how you got to be where you are in life...*shivers* that sounds like an absolute nightmare, especially considering you might have to live your life all over again...

On the other hand, waking up to discover you're a lamp wouldn't be so bad, unless the people who own you have a cat in the house...*shivers* (Comic via Channelate)

Why Columns Have the Same Leaf Design

For some reason, we had to learn the difference between Roman columns in elementdary school. It may have been so that the school could check off "architecture" in our curriculum, but the lesson was disconnected to anything else in world history, so it didn't mean much. The real reason that columns were so important is that they held the building up, which would be important if we ever bothered to learn more about architecture. But now that we're older and know more, we get the fascinating tale of why Corinthian columns were made in the same pattern for thousands of years, from the Greeks and Romans all the way up to today.

The legend is a good tale, but the history we know for real is quite interesting, too. -via Laughing Squid

The 25 Best Set Pieces of Steven Spielberg’s Career

The newest Steven Spielberg movie, Ready Player One, opens nationwide today. In honor of the occasion, we can indulge in some a Spielberg's greatest past work. A set piece is "a scene or sequence of scenes whose execution requires serious logistical planning and considerable expenditure of money." They can often stand alone without the rest of the film, but they cannot be taken out of a film without damaging the whole. For example:

7. Melting Nazis, Raiders Of The Lost Ark (1981)

More than a decade before Spielberg The Grownup Filmmaker plunged audiences into the full horror of the Holocaust, Spielberg The Ageless Adolescent tackled history’s darkest chapter from a more boyish, innocently rousing vantage. Raiders Of The Lost Ark is all about sticking it to Hitler—a kind of fantasy score-settling that culminates in the film’s karmic, cathartic Grand Guignol climax. Tied to a nearby post, Ford’s Dr. Jones and Marion Crane (Karen Allen) avert their eyes as the Nazi bad guys pry open the titular artifact and get some supernatural comeuppance. The ethereal effects look primitive by today’s standards, but there’s a timeless (and, sadly, rather timely) thrill to watching these Third Reich scoundrels go from solid to liquid for their sins. It was neither the first nor the last time Spielberg would push the limits of the PG rating; everyone tends to attribute the introduction of PG-13 to the heart-ripping violence in his second Indiana Jones movie. But with Raiders, Spielberg traumatized all ages for a greater good. Remember, the next best thing to clocking a real Nazi is melting off the face of a fake one.

The AV Club looks at 25 such set pieces, arranged in chronological order, maybe because it would be too hard to rank them. Oh yeah, the videos are there, too. Scrolling through them is like watching all your favorite movies again.

The Evolution of Disney Character Costumes

Disney Dan has a series of videos he's made over the past several years that trace the evolution of costumed Disney characters. Mickey Mouse was making public appearances decades before Disneyland opened, and he is the first character to get a deep dive into the costume. You'll learn some stories you haven't heard before, like how the first Mickey and Minnie at Disneyland were borrowed from the Ice Capades because Walt didn't have any cast members or costumes.  

(YouTube link)

My kids were excited to meet Mickey in 2002 at Walt Disney World. If we'd waited a couple of years, he could have spoken to them, but by then my daughters would have been older and not as thrilled. Disney Dan has 14 videos in the series so far, covering Donald Duck, Winnie-the-Pooh, Peter Pan, Dumbo, and more. Eventually, he'll get around to doing costume videos on the Disney Princesses. -via Metafilter

Nude Art Generated by Artificial Intelligence

Robbie Barrat is testing the limits of machine learning. He gave a neural network lessons in art, and asked it to paint landscapes (digitally, of course). More recently, he turned his attention to classical nudes. He fed thousands of nude portraits into a Generative Adversarial Network (GAN) to see what would result.

Generative adversarial networks are defined as a class of artificial intelligence algorithms used in unsupervised machine learning, which uses two different neural networks, one called the "generator" and one the "discriminator."

"The generator tries to come up with paintings that fool the discriminator, and the discriminator tries to learn how to tell the difference between real paintings from the dataset and fake paintings the generator feeds it," Barrat told me. "They both get better and better at their jobs over time, so the longer the GAN is trained, the more realistic the outputs will be."

Sometimes, Barrat explained, the GAN will fall into what's called a "local minima," which means the generator and discriminator have found a way to keep trying to fool each other without actually getting better at the task at hand.

The two neural networks may be quite pleased with themselves, but their nudes are so abstract that they'll never flag a moderator. The one in the middle right of this Tweet looks like Olaf from Frozen. However, people have asked if they could buy a print. Read about the algorithmically-generated art at CNET and see more digital paintings in Barrat's Twitter feed.  -via Boing Boing

Things That Are Bigger On The Inside

The laws of physics forbid an item from being bigger on the inside, so in order to find things that are larger inside than out we must forego standard science and head into the realm of science fiction.

There we can find amazing objects with interior spaces roomy enough for Time Lords, Grouches and families of wizards to chill in, the perfect places for a daydream.  (Illustration by Hello With Cheese)

Bela Lugosi Meets a Brooklyn Gorilla: An All-Time Turkey

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

Our story begins in November of 1950, when Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis were making one of their appearances on the popular weekly variety show The Colgate Comedy Hour. At the end of one of their comedy sketches on the show, a 16-year-old kid named Sammy Petrillo made an appearance as a baby Jerry Lewis, in a crib. Sammy was paid "around $600" for the gig -easy money- he had no lines. A few weeks later, Sammy made another guest appearance as a Jerry Lewis clone on Eddie Cantor's Colgate Comedy Hour turn (the show featured rotating guest hosts).

Actually, our story began 16 years earlier, when Sammy Petrillo was born in the Bronx, in 1934. Like Jerry Lewis, Sammy was born into a show business family. And also like Jerry, Sammy began performing at a very early age and would sometimes join his father onstage when he was performing in the Catskills.

Already bitten by the show biz bug, as a teenager, Sammy enrolled in the High School of Performing Arts in Manhattan. The turning point of Sammy Petrillo's life occurred one innocent day- when he was getting a haircut.

Sammy: “One day I went down to the Annex at the High School of Performing Arts. The Annex was a trade school and they had people who were learning how to cut hair. And so I got a freebie haircut and the guy cut my hair and he started to laugh. And I said, 'Whatta ya laughing at?' and he said, 'You look just like that Jerry Lewis!' And I said, 'Get outta here!' And everywhere I walked, people laughed and asked me if I was Jerry Lewis, it was unbelievable. And Jerry Lewis at the time, I guess, had made his second motion picture, My Friend Irma Goes West. I really didn't know that much about him. I kinda caught some glimpses of the movie and I saw he went, 'Ack! Ack! Ack!' And he talked kinda high... And I said, 'Gee, maybe I do resemble that guy and I can do that kind of a laugh, I could do that kind of a voice."

The real gem here is finding out how many times General Leia got to slap Poe. Funny how she took so long to get it right.

The Long, Strange History of Medicinal Turpentine

While I was never obliged to drink turpentine as a child, I was haunted with the idea a few times. We had access to doctors. My parents, however, were given a few drops occasionally during their childhoods to ward off intestinal worms and other parasites. See, pines trees developed sap that kills parasites, and turpentine is distilled pine resin. Turpentine is good for thinning paint, repelling water, and as fuel for lamps. That doesn't mean it's safe to ingest, but it has a long history as a medicine.

Viewed in context, it’s easier to understand why doctors once used it as medicine. Pine tar, another related product, is still a useful medicine ingredient for rashes and skin problems, while turpentine oil, which was also considered good for lung health, is still an ingredient in Vick’s Vapor-Rub. (Although it’s listed as an inactive ingredient.) Turpentine is antiseptic, too, and the terrible taste and harsh effects could have been interpreted as signs that it was working. “King of the [medicines] was turpentine, a product of the tidewater pine forests,” Kentucky historian Thomas D. Clark wrote. “Turpentine had three important medical requisites: It smelled loud, tasted bad, and burned like the woods on fire.” It also had the strange side effect of making urine smell like violets.

This Dog is Best Friends With Owls

They say birds of a feather stick together, but that's certainly not the case when it comes to Ingo the dog and her owl friends. 

It seems Ingo originally was friends with one little owl named Poldi and his collection of buddies has drastically grown from there -though the pictures seem to prove that Ingo and Poldi are still the closest of the group.

You might say they get a real "hoot" out of the relationship.

Fortunately for all of us, Ingo's owner, Tanja Brandt is a professional photographer who is there to capture every unique and beautiful encounter between Ingo, Poldi and all the other owls they encounter.

You can see more of the fantastic images on Ingpo's Facebook page.

Even though species normally evolve in tiny increments, when one develops something that is different from their ancestors, there has to be a first one to try it.

Meet The Daring Female Pilots Who Bombed Nazis By Night

Female combat pilots were virtually unheard of before World War II, and while the Women Airforce Service Pilots were making history in the U.S. the Russian Night Witches were preparing to bomb Nazis by night.

The 588th Night Bomber Regiment, aka the Night Witches, were an all-female group of brave Russian fliers who went on bombing raids by the light of the moon in plywood biplanes like true heroes:

All told, the pioneering all-female 588th Night Bomber Regiment dropped more than 23,000 tons of bombs on Nazi targets. And in doing so, they became a crucial Soviet asset in winning World War II.

The Germans nicknamed them the Nachthexen, or “night witches,” because the whooshing noise their wooden planes made resembled that of a sweeping broom. “This sound was the only warning the Germans had. The planes were too small to show up on radar… [or] on infrared locators,” said Steve Prowse, author of the screenplay The Night Witches, a nonfiction account of the little-known female squadron. “They never used radios, so radio locators couldn’t pick them up either. They were basically ghosts.”

The squadron was the brainchild of Marina Raskova, known as the “Soviet Amelia Earhart”—famous not only as the first female navigator in the Soviet Air Force but also for her many long-distance flight records. She had been receiving letters from women all across the Soviet Union wanting to join the World War II war effort. While they had been allowed to participate in support roles, there were many who wanted to be gunners and pilots, flying on their own. Many had lost brothers or sweethearts, or had seen their homes and villages ravaged. Seeing an opportunity, Raskova petitioned Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin to let her form an all-female fighting squadron.

On October 8, 1941, Stalin gave orders to deploy three all-female air force units. The women would not only fly missions and drop bombs, they would return fire—making the Soviet Union the first nation to officially allow women to engage in combat. Previously, women could help transfer planes and ammunition, after which the men took over.

The 1940s Mermaid Show That's Still Pulling Crowds

The Weeki Wachee mermaids were magical creatures to me as a child, even though I was old enough to know they were real women. Women with awesome jobs, in my eyes. Like many little girls, I wanted to grow up to be a mermaid. But not badly enough to move to Florida as an adult. I had no idea they were still putting on shows three times a day in 2018!
