Stefania Atupe's Makeup Art



Makeup artist Stefania Atupe is a master of eyelid art. In fact, she channels the masters of art, like Van Gogh and Monet by recreating their famous paintings in miniature on eyelids! You certainly recognize Starry Night above. Also check out Atupe's version of Monet' s Water Lilies below.  

"When I posted the peacock design onto twitter, a girl actually messaged me and said that it reminded her of a Van Gogh piece, and since I absolutely love Van Gogh I decided I would try out Starry Night," she continued. 

"I then just sat down and spent a good hour and a half just recreating the look, slowly outlining it and developing the colours! It took really long as there's so many different colours, and I really wanted to try get all the same colours and patterns as in the original painting," Atupe continued.

Sad Dogs Outside Shops Look So Sad

Dogs have a knack for making people feel pity for them, and when a dog sets its sad eyes upon us, its head, tail and ears hanging low us it tugs at our heartstrings and makes us want to comfort the poor pooch.

For instance- dogs make the saddest face in the world when they're left outside while their human goes inside a store, creating sadorable moments ready to be caught on camera.

The "Sad Dogs Outside Shops" Facebook page chronicles the plight of those poor abandoned and deprived dogs whose cruel owners leave them out in the cold, so we can all pity their sad, sad lives.

Getting Power During a Power Outage

The electricity in your home goes out. What to do? Well, if you knew what you were doing, you could use a flashlight to find the available batteries in your home to generate juice to run your most valuable gadgets.

Let's Talk About Sleep, Baby

During a fight with my partner the other night, it occurred to me the other day that there are three types of sleepers: those who have to sleep with music or television on, those who can't sleep with music or television on, and those that don't care either way. And those that don't care either way seem to be able to fall asleep no matter what's going on.

For partners where one person who can't sleep with music or TV on and one person has to, bedtime can become tricky, so I want to know how you readers with the same problem deal with it. How do you compromise when one person can only do things one way and the other can only do things the other? And just for fun, answer our poll and we'll get a better idea of which sleeping habit is the most common.

Do you have to watch TV or listen to music when you go to sleep?

Lighthouse Volunteer Position Open

Talk about getting away from it all! The Tasmanian Parks and Wildlife Service is seeking a couple of new volunteer lighthouse keepers for Maatsuyker Island, ten kilometers of the coast of western Tasmania. The lighthouse is automated, so volunteers would spend six months monitoring a weather station, observing wildlife, and mowing the grass. Two people, all alone. And the conditions won't be what you're used to. There's a landline, but it doesn't always work well, and you'll have no internet. And Maatsuyker Island is notoriously colder than the rest of Australia. From the application form:

Volunteers are responsible for providing their own food, clothing, entertainment, bedding and other personal items.  The Parks and Wildlife Service will provide transport by helicopter for these items between Hobart and Maatsuyker Island.  Transport space is limited to 325 kg per person, (for 6 month stay).

The Parks and Wildlife Service  will also provide one resupply helicopter visit at approximately 3 months in (i.e. one resupply in the standard 6 month stay), often to coincide with scheduled or unplanned maintenance.   Space on the resupply flight will also be limited. Caretakers generally make their own arrangements for the preparation of food and other goods for resupply. Please note PWS prefer people take as many of the supplies as possible onto Maatsuyker in the beginning, so that the resupply can be primarily for fresh food and mail.  There is a vegetable garden maintained by the caretakers for fresh food.  

Electricity is supplied by a generating system incorporating solar and back up diesel. The high cost of transport dictates that gas and diesel consumption on the island be kept to a minimum.

Volunteers must go through a training program and be certified in First Aid and Marine Radio Operation, and demonstrate competency in other skills. The application is available through the Park Service. The application deadline is January 30th.  -via Metafilter

Finally There's a College Course on Kanye West

Kanye 2020 by merimeaux

We all know Kanye is a genius, he's made that very clear to the rest of us. But up until now there has never been a chance to really study the most brilliant man in show business the way you might study Shakespeare or Picasso. Luckily, St. Louis's Washington University is here to correct that with their course "Politics of Kanye West: Black Genius and Sonic Aesthetics."

Sure, some naysayers might criticize such a course offering, but aren't all geniuses misuderstood in their lifetime? Anyway, according to the course's professor, Dr. Jeffrey McCune, the course isn't really about Kanye himself anyway, but "good way to get students to connect issues of politics, race, gender, sexuality and culture.” It seems that as always, Kanye seems to be lagging behind in the progress Beyonce has already made -then again, I don't think she's ever actually been a professor. No word on when he plans on teaching a course on himself.

You can read more about the class, and the huge waiting list, on the St. Louis Post-Dispatch

The Man Behind Comic Sans

Comic Sans was used so much in the 1990s that it became a joke itself. It was never meant as a joke, despite the name. Vincent Connare, who actually designed the font, will tell us about how it came about.

"It's all my fault." That may be what you watched the video to hear, but there's more to it than that, as you'll find out in this video from Great Big Story. -via Geeks Are Sexy

Escaped Bloodhound Runs Half Marathon; Comes in Seventh

Ludivine the bloodhound escaped her yard when she was let out to go to the bathroom. She then decided to join a half marathon, showing up at the starting line and ended up running all 13.1 miles and came in seventh in the rankings -and was the fastest female runner. Ludivine actually probably ran more than 13.1 miles as she took a few detours to sniff at dead animals in the area and play in the water.


While she wasn't considered a real participant in the event, the dog did get an official medal to celebrate her great running time. April Hamlin, the pup's owner, had no idea the dog ran off until after Ludivine came back a local celebrity.

The First Observations of Sea Ice Came From 8th-Century Irish Monks in Iceland

Geographers in ancient times may have guessed that the ocean is cold enough near the Poles to freeze, but they did not leave written records of witnessing it. That job fell to Irish monks who were searching for a wilderness of solitude. Christianity came to Ireland in the 5th century (remember St. Patrick), and monasteries filled with students of the faith over the next few hundred years. Crowded monasteries caused monks to reach out even further north for a peaceful place to commune with God.

There’s not much evidence left of the journeys of these monastic explorers, but in later years Norse stories had a name from them, the papar. Gaelic monks settled on empty northern islands—Orkney, Shetland—but it’s also possible that they found their way to Iceland, where manmade caves, decorated with crosses, have convinced some archaeologists that there were settlers here before the Vikings.

An early Irish geographer, Dicuil, also writes of “priests who stayed on that island from the first of February to the first of August.” The year would have been 795, and Dicuil briefly notes a journey they took north. “These priests then sailed hence and, in day’s sail, did reach the frozen sea to the north.”

But there's always the possibility of finding even earlier records. Any would useful to those documenting the natural history of the ebb and flow of Arctic ice. Read more about the history of frozen seas as we know it at Atlas Obscura.

How To Turn An IKEA Pendant Lamp Into An Exploding Death Star Lamp

You wouldn't want to live in, on or anywhere near the Death Star, nor would you want your planet to be in the space station's sights, but having a mini replica of the Death Star in your house can be really fun!

In this instance the Death Star-related fun to be had in your home involves modding an IKEA pendant lamp with a really cool transforming feature to look like an exploding Death Star.

Instructables user MariaK64 modded the IKEA PS 2014 pendant lamp by masking and painting it to look like the Death Star, and since it already goes into explode mode with a pull of the cord the cinematic effect was complete.

You can see Maria's original tutorial here, and here's a short video showing the lamp in action:

"Under Pressure" Sung by Pigeons

There's no punch line here, just an entire flock of relatable pigeons singing a relatable song as if they were born to do it. And the panels you see here aren't even half of it. They perform the entire song "Under Presuure" by Queen and David Bowie at Pigeon Comics, as drawn by ProfessorBees (Christian McGowan). See the rest of it here.   

This particular comic has become quite popular, and readers are asking for posters to be produced. That might happen. -via Metafilter

Raccoon And Her Newborn Cubs Accidentally Hitch A Ride Across The USA

Wild animals who are about to give birth try to find a safe and secure place to deliver their offspring, where neither humans nor other critters can harm them while they're at their most vulnerable.

But sometimes that search for safety lands them in a heap of trouble, or transports them to a faraway place.

(Image Link)

A raccoon mom desperate to find a safe place to deliver her cubs smuggled herself on board a moving truck which had recently been burglarized and proceeded to give birth.

Unfortunately, the guy driving the truck was moving from Fort Myers, Florida to Marin County, California, so she and her cubs were stuck in the back of the truck for eleven days without food or water.

When the driver discovered those cute little stowaways they were near death, so he turned them over to the wildlife hospital WildCare for treatment.

WildCare was able to nurse the raccoon family back to health, and the Oakland Zoo was willing to take them in and give them a new home.

Girl Live Tweets Her Brother's Meltdown After His Runescape Account Is Hacked

Gamers who dedicate a portion of their lives to playing an MMO take their character and that character's in-game accomplishments very seriously, and they live in fear of having their account hacked.

And when you've played an MMO for ten years there's bound to be an emotional reaction when you find out your account was hacked, but don't take it out on your friends or family or they might share the meltdown online.

Twitter user bakebythepound's brother understandably flipped out when his Runescape account was hacked and held for ransom, but his immature behavior at home pissed off his fam and made him a target for live tweeting.

The incident continued through the night and then bakebythepound's bitter bro hilariously started the fight again in the morning, all over a crappy MMO with graphics that would have looked outdated in the 90s.

Dancing Breakfast - You've Got To Be Yolking

If Real People Commercials Were Real Life

Chevy talked to "real people, not actors" for their latest series of ads for various vehicles. As if actors weren't real people, or as if real people couldn't be encouraged to act. Or edited. But what if a guy got into their focus group without realizing that he was supposed to say nice things if he wanted to be in the ad? Video contains a little NSFW language.

(YouTube link)

Right, as soon as you saw this was the "emoji ad," you know what was going to come up. Zebra Corner did a really good editing job on this one. Also, ComradeWarbear made a video with an more in-depth critique of the "real people" ads. -via reddit

Disneyland itself may not sell alcohol, but their other properties in Anaheim do -and honestly, even the mocktails available at Disneyland are often superior to any drink at your local neighborhood bar. Travel and Leisure has compiled a full list of cocktails, mocktails and even sodas that you won't want to miss on your next visit. The beautiful drink above (as photographed by adambryan) is the Fun Wheel, which is on the secret drink menu at the Cove Bar in California Adventure. 

Prefer to stay a little more sober? Then check out the Pomegranate Pirhana Lemonade sold at the Bengal Barbecue (photographed here by terriblewendybird). Of course, the Boysen Apple Freeze and Doc's Grape Tonic also sound pretty inviting.

What’s the Story Behind This Superman Comic?

The image of Superman promoting tolerance and diversity among schoolchildren is authentic. It's a 1949 image by comic book artist Wayne Boring, used in school posters and book covers. It's a relic of a campaign to stamp out racial, ethnic, and religious prejudice in the United States at a time when Europe was undergoing a seismic swell of anti-semitism in the path to World War II.

In 1938, the New York City Board of Education began requiring students to learn about how multiple groups contributed to American history. When World War II erupted one year later, the demand for tolerance education spiked. The New York Times reported in 1939 that "Instances were cited of teachers in New York City and elsewhere being 'ridiculed, harassed and otherwise impeded' by pupils under the influence of, and stimulated by, Nazi doctrine." To nip foreign propaganda in the bud, schools across the country joined the tolerance movement. Military leaders encouraged it, too. They knew that American troops, many of them fresh out of school, would fight their best if they learned to set aside their differences.

Countless non-profit groups, many of them interreligious, led the charge. Burkholder writes that “Religious leaders, educators, and politicians stressed tolerance as a central tenet of democracy." They provided prejudice-fighting materials to schools, from teachers’ manuals to comic books to textbooks.

Outside of school, short pro-tolerance films played at the beginning of movies. People held tolerance rallies. The National Conference of Christians and Jews distributed 10 million “Badge of Tolerance” buttons. Groups such as the Council Against Intolerance in America distributed maps showing the breadth of diversity in America’s cultural landscape. Even Superboy stepped in, telling a bunch of his schoolmates that “No single land, race or nationality can claim this country as its own.” At the end, Superboy and his pals celebrate by eating Swedish meatballs.

That all sounds well and good, but it didn't last. The groups that led the charge for tolerance were eventually accused of being "un-American" themselves! Read what happened at mental_floss.

One Thing Trump Supporters and Protesters Can Agree On: Free Pot

There's been a lot of news about the inauguration this year and it mostly focused on how divided people are about a Trump presidency -he has tons of die-hard supporters, but also tons of die-hard critics. But one thing that brought people of all walks of life together at the inauguration yesterday was the promise of free weed for all. 

Pro-marijuana legalization group the DC Cannabis Coalition, also known as DCMJ, rolled 8,000 joints and gave them out to the public asking only that those recieving the goods be over 21 and have an ID to prove it. The group's aim was to bring attention to the plight of marijuana legalization (it is currently legal to have and share -though not to sell in DC) under the looming shadow of Trump's selected Attorney General, who is very outspoken about being anti-marijuana.

This Shark Loves Cuddling

Generally speaking, marine animals don't like to be touched but that's not always the case. In fact, professional diver Rick Anderson has a close friendship with a Port Jackson shark that constantly seeks out his pets and belly scratches.

It all started when he started trying to show his diving students how friendly sharks can be by playing with one freshly hatched shark. From that point on, whenever Anderson dived in those waters, the shark would find him and seek cuddles and scratches. This has gone on for seven years, "it got to the point that if I didn’t notice her, she would come out and tap me on the legs until I held out my arms for a cuddle, often to the amazement of my students," he says.

Of course Rick encourages other divers to be respectful of wild animals,"they’ll let you know if they don’t want to be handled," he says, adding, "If you touch some of them, you can also wipe off their protective layers of skin." So please, don't go running around trying to pet under water animals just because this shark is adorable.

You can read more about the shark and Rick and see more pictures on Buzzfeed.

The Most Deadly Path in England

(Image via Wikipedia)

Just off of the coast of Essex lies Foulness Island, which is home to the most deadly pathway in all of Britian. Known as the Broomway, the path travels several hundred yards off the coast stretching for three miles as it leads the walker through sand and mud flats that are washed clear by the sea twice a day every day.

At least 100 people have died on the Broomway, and those are only the recorded victims. Of those 100, only sixty six of the bodies were recovered and they have since been laid to rest in the small churchyard nearby.

Of course, the quickly rising tide is only one of the deadly threats to walkers on what Edwardian newspapers termed "The Doomway." While the path was marked by the locals who buried brooms in the mud long ago, hence the name "Broomway," in rain, mist or fog, the pathway can become dangerously disorienting with little to guide the walker along the path of shining sand. Even in good weather, a wrong step can leave you stuck in deep mud or quicksand. 

Of course, the path wasn't built just to be a deadly, scenic attraction. Until 1932, it was the only way to reach the Foulness Island from the mainland without a boat.

You can read more about the Broomway and a detailed account of walking the treacherous path in this BBC article.

A Message From The LDNF

I can't believe how many posts I see on a daily basis which are written by people who still call Kaneda "Akira", Link "Zelda" or Samus Aran "Metroid".

These people insist on writing about geeky stuff yet can't be bothered to do their homework and discover these characters' real names, and then they add insult to injury by calling R2-D2 and C-3PO "robots".

That's why Sephko Comics created this important illustrated message for the Learn the Damn Name Foundation, to show those lazy bloggers that people care- so learn the damn names already! *shakes fist*

The Brutalist Playground Doesn't Sound Fun, But These Kids Seem To Dig It

(Image by Alun Bull)

Brutalism and playgrounds don't sound like they would go well together, but judging by the way these kids look as they play on this Brutalist-inspired playground equipment they can't tell the difference.

(Image by Alun Bull)

Architectural collective ASSEMBLE installed their recreation of post-war play structures "The Brutalist Playground" at the Vitra Design Museum, but instead of concrete and steel they used reconstituted foam.

(Image by Alun Bull)

ASSEMBLE's "The Brutalist Playground" is inspired by the Brutalist architecture movement, which flourished from the 50s to the 70s:

originating in britain shortly after the second world war, brutalist architecture brought about a range of expressive structures made with raw materials and an uncompromisingly rugged aesthetic. across the country, architects constructed a number of large concrete residential buildings, some of which featured unconventional recreational areas for children.

the concrete and steel structures have been recast in reconstituted foam, allowing the objects’ formal characteristics to be viewed separately from their materiality. the interactive presentation of the playground allows visitors to explore the original spatial concepts of brutalism.

Always Look On The Dark Side Of Life - Siths Don't Smile


Always look on the Dark Side of Life by IdeasConPatatas

People are always telling us to look on the bright side, to see the silver lining and to keep our heads up so we can see that the sky is still blue. But if there's one thing you can always bet on it's that wars will spring up out of the blue, and the Empire can rain death and destruction down upon our heads anywhere and at any time. That's why it's better to stay cynical, so you can keep any new hope you may have in check and stay frosty when you're facing Darth's Imperial forces, because the stars aren't shining down upon you because they care about your well-being...

Sing a different tune, one that's more appropriate for the dark times ahead, by wearing this Always Look On The Dark Side Of Life t-shirt by IdeasConPatatas, it's a comedy anthem for a dark new world.

Giant Alligator Casually Crosses Paths With Tourists In Florida

Tourists who visit the wild parts of Florida hear rumors they may see wild animals up close and personal during their visit, and yet they're still shocked when the rumors turn out to be true.

But I'm pretty sure most native Floridians would still flip out if they saw a twelve foot long alligator walking by just a few feet away.

Kim Joiner and Sean and Kristi Buckley were visiting the Circle B Park in Lakeland, Florida when a giant gator named Humpback strolled by like he's no big deal, giving Kim and the Buckleys a chance to play gator paparazzi.

And just like that Humpback was gone back to wherever 12-foot-long alligators spend their days, but not before Kim could shoot this video footage of his casual stroll.

People Share The Most Bizarre Rules They Had To Follow As Kids

(Image Link)

Parents need to set boundaries for their children both as a way to teach them right and wrong and to keep them safe in the outside world, because kids who run amok with no boundaries are bound to get hurt.

My Dad is a very VERY introverted guy, and he never liked to be in large crowds. So unless it was a school event, I was forbidden from going to any large crowded events/places like the mall, concerts, sporting events.

I was told that this was for my own safety.

-djfiyenine11

But some parents take the setting of household boundaries too far, and their ridiculous demands affect their kids for the rest of their lives.

We could only eat 2 cookies at a time, and no more than 4 in a day.

I was living on my own for like a year abiding by this rule, until one day I was like, "man, I REALLY want three Oreos, not two." And I did it.

-PrettyTypicalBroTBH

Redditors took to AskReddit to answer the question "What bizarre rule did your parents enforce that seemed normal, but when you grew up realized was not normal at all?" and their answers prove some parents are plumb loco.

8:30 pm bedtime. My. Entire. Damned. Life. Though, I knew as a teenager that making your high schooler go to bed when it was still light out half the time was whacko.

Well into my 20s I'd come back to visit for the holidays and dad would get up to use the toilet at night, see the light on in my room from me being awake reading a book at 10 p.m., and yell at me to go to sleep.

-norrina

There may have been extenuating circumstances that the Redditors aren't sharing which led to these bizarre rules, but how does a parent justify not letting visitors poop in their house?

No one was allowed to poop in our house. We had a large house and all 4 of us had our own restrooms. There was this little girl with special needs I used to play with when I was little and once she had to use the restroom. My mom asked me where she was and I said she's in the bathroom. My mom walked in on the poor girl mid-poop and told her to go home and finish.
