Angry Neighbors and the Notes They Write

Unless you live out in the country, surrounded by empty land, you have to be considerate of your neighbors. Failing to do so may lead to someone leaving a note or sign, especially if they aren't sure who the perpetrator is. Check out the variety of angry notes left in public to address these concerns. The biggest part of them deal with people who don't clean up after their dogs, but noise and parking space disputes are common. Some notes contain NSFW language. Read 34 of them all at Some ECards. And take a hint on how to be a good neighbor, or deal with someone who isn't. -via Boing Boing

An Animated Fan Film For The Pot Smashing Rupee Collector In All Of Us

People have made all kinds of comics, short films and cartoons about the mighty Link and his quest to save Hyrule, and they're all great fun to check out- but they're also all missing a little something.

So which magical element of the Legend Of Zelda games do the artists paying homage to the games nearly always forget to include? The activity I spend hours doing every time I play a Zelda game- smashing pots for rupees.

(YouTube Link)

Animator Callegos Yavolitak created this fan film for the pot smasher in all of us, which focuses on the greatest pastime in Hyrule and shows us we're not alone in our obsession to destroy and collect gems.

The Love Life of W.C. Fields

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

"Women are like elephants to me; I like to look at them, but I wouldn't want to own one."

-W.C. Fields (William Claude Dukenfield) 1880-1946

W.C. Fields is a comic icon in movie history. Critics rank him with Charlie Chaplin, Buster Keaton and the Marx Brothers in the upper echelons of motion picture comedy. His classic movies include Million Dollar Legs (1932), Tillie and Gus (1933), The Bank Dick (1940), My Little Chickadee (with Mae West) (1940) and Never Give a Sucker an Even Break (1941).

W.C. Fields spent much of his boyhood in poverty and as an adult was constantly in fear of being broke. As a result, his girlfriends found him a tight man with a dollar.

On April 8, 1900, at the age of 20, Fields married for the first and only time. Her name was Harriet "Hattie" Hughes. Hattie worked alongside Fields in his vaudeville juggling act as his assistant. In the act, Fields would humorously blame her when he made a mistake.

Hattie was well-educated and tutored Fields in reading and writing (his own education had been very limited). The couple had a son together in 1904 named William Claude Fields, Jr. Although Fields was devoutly anti-religion, because of Hattie's influence, he agreed to have his son baptized.

This Photo Series Breaks 43 Of The Most Ridiculous Laws In America

You don't have to be a total rebel to know stupid and incredibly outdated laws are made to be broken, and in times when the powers that be keep trying to make laws to limit our personal freedoms it's time to resist.

Photographer Olivia Locher wants her rebellion against dumb, antiquated laws to be on the record, so she created a series called "I Fought The Law" which illustrates how utterly moronic these laws are.

At the top we have Alabama's law against having an ice-cream cone in your back pocket, above we have Ohio's law against disrobing in front of a man's portrait, and below we have Oklahoma's crazy law against people making love to their cars.

Lawmakers have way too much time on their hands if they think these laws need to be on the books!

An Honest Trailer for Power Rangers

Did anyone go see the movie Power Rangers when it was released back in the spring? I guess so, since the movie performed a little better than expected, but it was never expected to be a blockbuster. Critical response was meh. Screen Junkies knows what the problem was: the movie was too serious about the adventures of five teenage superheroes in matching costumes.

(YouTube link)

The producers didn't seem to realize that the franchise's silliness was a big part of its draw. Too bad. Instead of a action-comedy, they ended up with a teen drama crossed with a doughnut ad. Enjoy some hard-hitting criticism of Power Rangers in the latest Honest Trailer. -Thanks, Jill!

Incredible Examples Of Animal Camouflage

(Image Link)

Animals and insects have an amazing array of offensive and defensive tools at their disposal, and whether predator or prey they all try to maintain a low profile when they're hanging out in the wild.

The best tool to use when you want to remain unseen is natural camouflage, so you blend in with the plants and trees and coral reefs around you.

(Image Link)

Natural camouflage works so well it even hides creatures from our scrutinizing human stare, making it really hard to tell whether that's a tree bark colored owl or a chunk of tree bark pretending to be an owl.

New Ken Dolls Come in All Flavors

Mattel gave Barbie a variety of body shapes, skin tones, and styles last year, and now Ken has them, too! The new Ken dolls were introduced this morning on Good Morning America.

Mattel has just rolled out a brand new line of Ken dolls — fifty years after the eponymous blond-haired, blue-eyed, perpetually tanned figures were first introduced — only now sporting three body types (regular, slender, and the delicately put “broad”), seven skin tones, and nine hairstyles. The first 10 dolls, which were unveiled on Good Morning America Tuesday morning, hit stores today — while the following five will be released in the coming months.

One of the new styles has a man bun. But no beard. My 16-year-old nephew stated clearly the other night that a man must have a beard if he is going to wear a man bun. That's a new one on me. The new selection of Ken Dolls are available in some stores now, and should roll out nationwide by July 8. See more images of the new dolls at GQ.

Totally Brilliant Ideas That Will Change Our Lives

(Image Link)

If I had a buck for every half-baked idea posing as a life hack or product innovation I'd be drowning in dollars, but then I'd come across one of these genius ideas worth a million and I'd have to give the creator all my bucks!

(Image Link)

Seriously, who doesn't think a vertical chessboard you can hang on your wall, a fry basket that fits on top of your soda or a yogurt lid that folds into a spoon aren't million dollar ideas?

(Image Link)

If you answered "I don't think these ideas are utterly brilliant" then tell me this- got a better idea than putting a two way mirror in the bar bathroom so you can keep an eye on what's happening while you're "indisposed"? Neither do I...

Reinventing the Toilet

Worldwide, 2.4 billion people don't have access to toilets, and a billion don't even have latrines or outhouses. Plumbing and sewer systems are expensive to build, and many places either have too little water to run them, or too much water, which makes it hard to keep sewage out of the freshwater supply. The answer may be a new technology that uses no water, and even recycles human waste. Virginia Gardiner designed the toilet called the Loowatt.

In Loowatt’s waterless flush design, the waste is sealed into a biodegradable bag underneath the toilet with not a drop of water being spilled. Once full, the bag is replaced by a service team, and the waste is brought (yes, hand-delivered) to Loowatt’s pilot waste-processing facility, where it’s converted to fertiliser and biogas.

This very manual setup sounds very archaic compared to the slick and convenient arrangements of the Western world. But sanitation experts think that in the era of climate change, when droughts and floods are becoming increasingly common, the West may have something to learn from the little waterless loos piloted in penniless Madagascan neighbourhoods. With the world’s population ever-increasing, places that historically relied on water for sanitation may have to reconsider how they flush.

Read how the Loowatt was conceived, and how it could change people's lives. -via Digg

Playboy Playmates Recreate Their Iconic Covers Decades Later

Many Playboy playmates have overcome the stigmas associated with being a nude model and turned their Playboy shoot into a springboard for their career.

But, like it or not, the most memorable playmates who posed for the most iconic covers will always be associated with Playboy Magazine, so why fight it?

Playboy asked Kimberley Conrad, Cathy St. George, Lisa Matthews and four other former Playmates to come back into the studio and recreate their classic covers.

And even though decades had passed since the original shoot the Playmates proved they still have what it takes to make Playboy magazine look good.

Real Life Heroic Teachers that Need Movies about Them

We love a feel-good movie about folks who made sacrifices to improve the world. As a group, teachers fit under that category more than the rest of us as a whole, but even among teachers, some stand out. For example, Emma Willard, born in 1787, started teaching early as a teenager and never stopped advocating for her students.

Emma Willard was born in a time when women were permitted no more than basic learning. Fortunately, her father supported her interest in education, with the result that she became a teacher at the age of 17. In time, she went on to found the first school that offered higher education to women in the whole of the United States, which can still be found in Troy, NY under her name. Later, when she had entrusted her school to both her son and her daughter-in-law, she went on to promote education for women not just in the United States but also throughout Europe.

Video Footage Of A Freaky Fish "Walking" Along The Ocean Floor

Watch a fish swim around under the sea and it looks like the most natural thing in the world, and the way they flop around after being stranded out of water looks totally natural too.

But seeing a fish "walk" along the ocean floor as it would on land seems like the most unnatural thing in the world because that fish should be free floating, not shuffling along the bottom like some bottom shuffler!

According to this National Geographic video this stingfish acting strangely was spotted off the coast of Bali, Indonesia, and it may be using the bony spines protruding from the bottom of its body to hunt for food.

The Remarkable Life of Margaret Brown

When you hear the name "the Unsinkable Molly Brown," you might picture the character Kathy Bates played in the 1997 movie Titanic. Margaret Brown was a real person who led a charmed life that she made the most of. Brown married for love instead of money, but then grew rich anyway. She spent that money improving the world wherever she saw fit. Her personality made her a media darling after the Titanic disaster, and she leveraged her celebrity to promote various causes.

Mrs. Brown dove into high society, becoming a devotee of the arts and learning four languages. She raised funds for a cathedral in Denver, and helped establish the country’s first juvenile court. Two years after the Titanic, Brown ran for the U.S. Senate, but cut her campaign short to volunteer to help France recover from the first World War. She used her Titanic fame to work for workers’ rights, women’s rights, education, and historic preservation, before dying of a brain tumor at age 65.

12 Fascinating Facts About Feminist Icon Nancy Drew

Fictional teenage sleuth Nancy Drew wasn't supposed to be a feminist. When publisher Edward Stratemeyer conceived the character, he was just adding to his empire of young reader book series that included The Hardy Boys, The Rover Boys, and The Bobbsey Twins.

The creator of the original Nancy Drew Series was actually a strident believer in “traditional” roles for women

While it’s no surprise that Edward Stratemeyer held these conservative views in the ’20s, he saw the success of the Hardy Boys series—in which brothers Frank and Joe Hardy solve mysteries—as an opportunity to develop a similar series for young girls. Previously, Stratemeyer’s former girl heroines were much more domestic, like Honey Bunch, a character, who the New Yorker points out, “knew exactly how to do a washing for she had watched the laundress many times.”

It was the authors who actually wrote the books who gave Nancy Drew the guts to do the things she did, particularly Mildred Wirt. Read about Wirt and learn a lot more about the history of the Nancy Drew mysteries at The Daily Dot.

Solar Eclipse on a Postage Stamp

The United States Postal Service is releasing a new stamp today that uses thermochromic ink to give us two different images on one stamp. The eclipse stamp is a commemoration of the total solar eclipse that will cross the U.S. on August 21.

The stamp image is a photograph taken by astrophysicist Fred Espenak, aka Mr. Eclipse, of Portal, AZ, that shows a total solar eclipse seen from Jalu, Libya, on March 29, 2006.

In the first U.S. stamp application of thermochromic ink, the Total Eclipse of the Sun Forever stamps will reveal a second image. Using the body heat of your thumb or fingers and rubbing the eclipse image will reveal an underlying image of the Moon (Espenak also took the photograph of the Full Moon). The image reverts back to the eclipse once it cools.

Stamp collectors (and people who take months to use a sheet of stamps) are warned to store the stamps away from sunlight to preserve the effect. You can buy a special envelope for them. The First-Day-of-Issue ceremony will be at the University of Wyoming library in Laramie today, during a summer solstice event. The eclipse stamps should roll out to post offices across the country soon. -via Metafilter

Attack On Jack - Who Needs The Survey Corps When You've Got A Samurai?


Attack on Jack by Christa D

Everybody is talking about the Titans these days, and they're seen as one of the biggest threats to mankind. But believe you me the Titans ain't got nothin' on the Demon King Aku- because he has a razor sharp mind, he can shape shift into any form he chooses, and is able to slip between time periods with very little effort. So instead of standing there with a stupid grin on his face Aku jumps around on the timeline mucking things up in humanity's past and future, forcing Jack to chase him and undo his evil deeds. And if that samurai known as Jack had to attack a pack of Titans he would cut them all down without breaking a sweat, his skills honed from centuries of chasing Aku and battling his demonic forces...

Get geared up for a different kind of animated adventure with this Attack On Jack t-shirt by Christa D, it's an unexpected mashup that makes the Titans look like a minor threat!

Home Sweet Home

We leave our homes and head out into a great big world, and if we really want to we can just keep going forever and ever, moving freely around the world as we please.

But our homes are forever stuck at home, bound to a foundation and a block of ground and therefore unable to meet other houses and see the world.

So what would our homes do if they were free to wander the world like we are?

Home Sweet Home is an oddly endearing short by Pierre Clenet, Alejandro Diaz, Romain Mazevet and Stéphane Paccolat that will either make you homesick or make you want to get out of the house more!

Sneezing Advice for Doctors

The following is an article from The Annals of Improbable Research, now in all-pdf form. Get a subscription now for only $25 a year!

(Image credit: Artur Bergman)

compiled by Ernest Ersatz, Improbable Research staff

Medical personnel must deal with sneezing by both patients and themselves. Insights and advice often get transmitted informally. The formal professional literature does include a few instances where the trade secrets are made quasi-public. Here are three such cases.

Gross: Eye Surgery on a Sneezing Patient
“Cataract Surgery in Patient Who Sneezes,” Jay Gross, Journal of the American Medical Association, vol. 253, no. 2, January 11, 1985, p. 202. Gross explains:

[The] phacoemulsification [method for removing cataracts from the eye] uses only a 3-mm incision, which would be enlarged to 7 mm to insert an intraocular lens. Another advantage of the phacoemulsification is that it is done with an essentially closed eye and there is much less risk of severe damage to the eye due to coughing or sneezing during surgery. Also, it is much easier to control such an event if it were to occur.

Inside the Tolstoy Family Reunion

Leo Tolstoy, the Russian author of War and Peace, Anna Karenina, and other classics, had thirteen children. Six of those children had their own children, and they eventually produced nearly 400 direct Tolstoy descendants, almost 300 of them living today. Every two years, they get together for a reunion at the Tolstoy estate in Yasnaya Polyana, Russia, despite the fact that they live all over the world. They renew family ties, try activities that recreate life in 19-century Russia, and play soccer and party games.      

But while the reunion is a bona fide good time, it’s also a lot more than that. "The first reunion literally turned my ‘consciousness upside down,’ as they say in Russian,” recalls Anastasia Tolstoy, Vladimir’s daughter. “Prior to then, I had known only a close circle of family and a few Tolstoys abroad. Everyone else was just a collection of names and numbers in the book detailing our family tree. In 2000, that tree was brought to life, and the colorfulness of the Tolstoy descendants was reawakened. We become a force to be reckoned with that goes beyond the renowned Russian writer, but back to centuries of illustrious ancestors with daring, history-making deeds.”

I do not have centuries of space here to describe those deeds, but to sum it up briefly: Historically, the Tolstoys have been known for their wild nature, intelligence, and creativity, with a very long legacy woven throughout Russian high society in politics, literature, and the fine arts.

Sophie Penkrat, Leo Tolstoy's great-great-granddaughter, writes about her family history, from Leo Tolstoy's life to the school he founded, to the trashing of his home during World War II, to the literary and human rights activities of his descendants, in an article about the Tolstoy reunions at Mental Floss.

Quick Rescue of a Baby Elephant

Why You Should Never Trust Photos You See On Social Media

Social media was designed to help us network with colleagues and stay in touch with our friends and relatives, but these days there's more snooping going on than staying in touch.

Former lovers, friends of friends, long lost relatives, potential employers and the people we meet while we're out and about are all potential snoopers, and they make us want to polish up every photo we post.

Which is where Photoshop masters like Chinese digital artist Kanahoooo, dubbed "Photoshop Holy", come in- they make people look pretty by request, transforming them into an ideal version suitable for exposure to the masses.

Kanahoooo knows a thing or two about digital deception, and she warns against believing every profile pic you see online-

"Don't believe the perfect thing you see online!" she says. "If you want to find out about somebody, then see them in real life."

A Treasury Official in 1866 Put His Own Face on U.S. Currency

When the Civil War began, Americans starting hoarding coins, as the metals they were made of were bound to become scarce. This caused a shortage of coins, and the U.S. mint responded by issuing paper currency in fractional denominations, like three cents, five cents, up to fifty cents. The state of our currency system was changing so rapidly that mistakes were bound to happen, and Superintendent of the National Currency Bureau Spencer M. Clark knew it.

It was the third issue of that five-cent note that caught Clark’s attention. Congress had asked for the note to honor William Clark of the Lewis and Clark explorations. But allegedly, the document that reached the Treasury specified only that the new bill should honor “Clark,” without clarifying which one—and Spencer M. Clark, despite surely knowing Congress’s true intention, seized the opportunity to print his own face on the bill.

William Clark, Spencer Clark, what difference does it make? Spencer was in hot water with Congress already, and they didn't take to his latest shenanigans one bit. Read what happened when Clark put his own face on the five-cent bill at Atlas Obscura.

Clicking Jeans

Don't you hate it when you get a new pair of jeans and they make a swish, crinkle or clicking sound that never seems to go away?

Denim is the only apparel fabric that can make a strange clicking sound even after it has been majorly softened up by the wash, so maybe it's trying to tell us something about the wearer?

That's what Jake Likes Onions thinks anyway...hope my jeans aren't commenting on my personal hygiene...

Kitten Rescued from Tesla

YouTuber S U does not have a cat, but he does have a Tesla Model X electric car. His car was meowing when he went out Saturday morning. It was a kitten stuck inside the bumper!

(YouTube link)

Or, he assumed it was a kitten, since he still couldn't see it. A Tesla technician came out to disassemble the bumper and remove the foreign object. Wearing leather gloves, of course.

(YouTube link)

They estimate the kitten had been in there for 14 hours or more, so the first thing they did was provide it with water. And one of the Tesla technicians said he and his wife would adopt "Tessie"! S U also made a follow-up video speculating on how the kitten got into the car. -via Gizmodo

How The Pretentious Jerk At Your Local Record Store Got That Way

Records stores are one of those places where the "hep cats" and "cool kids" shop and therefore they look daunting to people who don't think they're cool enough to be around that crowd.

Then the music lovers and record collectors who muster up the nerve to walk into the store have to deal with the pretentious clerks who make the whole experience a pain.

Some of these clerks are using their knowledge of music to boost self esteem and help them cope with their social anxiety, but most record store clerks are jerks because the customers made them that way.

Christopher Bickel of Dangerous Minds worked at a record store for over a decade and kept a notebook under the counter the entire time he worked there- so he and the other employees could write down the dumb things customers say:

Customer: “Do y’all have any cuban music? Like Kenny Chesney or Jimmy Buffett but without the Kenny Chesney and the Jimmy Buffett.”

One of our employees is eating a bag of chips when a customer comes up and asks “whatcha eatin’? Rootbeer?”

Customer: “Do you have CDs for turntables?”

Customer: “Do you guys buy records? I have a Lou Rawls album that my wife looked up online. It sells for $800. You can sell it for me and take a cut.”

Customer: “Why are there only 12 songs on this CD?”
Clerk: “Uh, that’s just how many songs are on it.”
Customer: “So, there’s six songs per side?”

(phone call)
Customer: “Is this the record place?”
Clerk: “Yes.”
Customer: “Could you tell me how to get a record deal? I do rap.”

Customer: “Do you have any Van Morrison? I didn’t see any under ‘V’.”
Clerk: (politely) “Well, it would actually be under ‘M’.”

Customer: “NEVERMIND!” (customer storms out)

Little Beast - I'm Guessing He Doesn't Get Along With Leprechauns

Little Beast by JozVoz

Nobody had a clue about the Niffler before Mr. Scamander accidentally let one loose in old New York, but now we know that no shiny coin, jewel or bauble is safe when the Niffler is on the prowl. The problem is- nobody accounted for the fictional universes inside of movies and TV shows, universes which the Niffler, being a magical beast of fantastic ability, was able to jump right in to without much effort. So if you watch Raiders of the Lost Ark, Dragon Ball or any of the LOTR series and notice something is missing you'll know who to blame.

You may not be the richest person on the planet, but when you wear this Little Beast t-shirt by JozVoz you'll feel like a million bucks!

1865 Ad for a Wife

We don't know the provenance of this delightful newspaper ad posted at reddit. We can assume that it was published around 1865, as the young man was a fan of Andy Johnson, or president Andrew Johnson, who served from 1865 (upon the death of Lincoln), was impeached in 1868, and remained in office until 1869. For an 18-year-old, the writer seems to have his life together, but was probably working too hard so far to meet many young woman. When he says he wants to buy waterfalls, he is most likely referring to a waterfall bustle, as was the style at the time. I would bet that he got responses to this ad. The last line makes him seem cute as well as successful.

Update: This appeared earlier on Flashbak's Twitter feed. -Thanks,
