10 Wonderfully Adorable Cartoons by Liz Climo

This is neat: Liz Climo, a character artist/storyboard revisionist on The Simpsons and a wonderful cartoonist, to boot, is launching her new book The Little World of Liz later this month. If you pre-order the book, you can get an exclusive signed 3x5 postcard with a grand prize winner getting a custom print from Liz.

We've posted about Liz many times before on Neatorama, so we're very familiar with her funny and adorable comics and are thrilled to showcase 10 of her wonderful comics.

Enjoy!

Miss Correct Posture

No slouchers here, ma'am! Just winners of the Miss Correct Posture beauty pageant.

In the 50s and 60s, American chiropractors held a series of rather unusual beauty pageants where contestants were judged and winners picked not only by their apparent beauty and poise, but also their standing posture (backed with X-rays of their spines, of course).

The contests were a publicity stunt, Reginal Hug, past president of the Association for the History of Chiropractic, told Scott Hensley of NPR, and was meant to burnish the reputation of the profession. The message, he said, was that good posture led to good health and that chiropractors could help with that. "In those days, nobody was concerned about radiation," Hug added, noting the use of X-rays to check for spinal structures.

Reverse Panhandling


Photo via @mennesseynews

Most people expect to get things on their birthdays, but not Bob Blackley of Winston-Salem, North Carolina. On his birthdays for the past three years, the 59-year-old man stands in the middle of a busy intersection giving out $5 to hundreds of strangers.

Call it a case of "reverse panhandling" - Last week, Blackley held a sign saying "I have a job. I have a home. Could YOU use an extra $5?" while he handed out the bills.

While a lot of people look at him suspiciously, thinking that he's trying to sell them something, Blackley told Michael Hennessey of Fox 8 News. But one man told him that he'd use the money to buys medicine he couldn't afford to pay for.

Blackley gave out $700 the first year, then $750 the next year, and $800 the year after that - all with no strings attached. "Anything they want, if it puts a smile on their face, it's theirs," Blakely said. And as for his motivation, Blackley said that his reason is simple: "Glad I woke up, glad I'm able to do it. That's what life is all about, smiling."

Parental Advice: Mom vs Dad

Need an advice? Your parents will gladly give you one, regardless if you want it or not. This chart above sums up the difference between the advice you will get from your mother and from your father ("carpe a job" - Hah!)

I noticed that the advice that your mom and dad would give you when you get cuts and scrapes isn't there, so here it is:

When You Get Hurt Playing Let me clean that up and put a band-aid for you. Be careful next time. Walk it off, buddy.

Can you think of any more motherly or fatherly advice?

Book Shadow Sculpture at the Library


via Amy Catherine's Pinterest

This is fantastic: a library in Mountain Home, Arkansas, has a wire sculpture that looks like a jumbled mess but casts a shadow that looks like a stack of books!

Does anyone know the sculptor's name?

How To Train Your Boyfriend

It's a well known parenting trick that kids love getting stars for performing well in school, doing chores around the house and, of course, potty training, but did you know that it's a great way to train your boyfriend, too?

The tumblr STFU, Couples shows us this great example of how Joe's girlfriend has got him educated in the art of modern relationship, including "epic dates," doing "things that please mom," "doing things that make sibs say 'aww'," and the all important "putting cute things on Facebook relationship status, pictures, etc."

Gold star to you, Joe's girlfriend!

Chrome's Font Looks Blurry to You? Here's How To Fix It

Did the recent update to your Google Chrome make the font blurry? Don't worry, it's not your eyesight. Here's how to fix it.

The newly released version 37 of Chrome for Windows uses a new text rendering method called DirectWrite. This method is hardware accelerated and it's supposed to be better than the previous one, but obviously it's caused some issues for you.

Try this: In the Chrome URL bar, type:

chrome://flags/#disable-direct-write

Then press enter. You should see the "Enable" turn into "Disable":

Click on the "Enable" link directly under the highlighted item to disable DirectWrite. You should see this:

Close all Chrome windows and restart it. The font should be nice and sharp again.

The Genie is Finally Free

Aw, I had to step out earlier today and came back to the sad news that Robin Williams has died of an apparent suicide. He'll definitely be missed. *sniff*. I guess the genie is finally free.

That Store

This store? No that store! We happened upon the That Store when walking around Flushing, New York, last week. I can't wait till the store becomes so successful that they can open more locations. At which point, you can then ask which That Store you're referring to: "This That Store" or "That That Store."

12 Kinds of Bicyclist in New York ... Which One Are You?

Artist Kurt McRobert drew these lovely archetypes of New York City bicyclists for a Time out New York feature, but one can assume to find most of these kinds of bikers in almost all metropolitan areas. I think he nailed it with the descriptions!

The World's Most Badass ... Vespa Scooter?!


Photo: C. Galliani/Wikimedia

Quick, what does the word "Vespa" bring to mind? If you say "cute lil' scooter," you probably haven't seen this image above of the Vespa 150 TAP (for Troupes Aéro Portées), a Vespa scooter modified for use with the French paratroopers in 1956.

It's probably safe to say that this is the deadliest Vespa in the world. The military scooter is powered by a single-cylinder 146 cc two-stroke engine. It sports a M20 75 mm recoilless rifle, US-made light anti-armor cannon, and storage for some ammos. The scooter would be parachute-dropped from airplanes, accompanied by a two-man team who'd scoot along in absolutely menacing style.

Every Noise At Once

What? You don't know your progressive house from your deep disco house? What kind of a music lover are you?

But thanks to Every Noise At Once by Glenn McDonald, you no longer have to wonder the difference between "black metal," "pagan black metal," and "dark black metal."

McDonald, who works as "genre taxonomist" over at Echo Nest sure knows his stuff. His website not only displays over a thousand music genres, but you can also explore 30 seconds Spotify clips of music representative of that genre by clicking on the individual link.

McDonald wrote on the website:

This is an ongoing attempt at an algorithmically-generated, readability-adjusted scatter-plot of the musical genre-space, based on data tracked and analyzed for 1215 genres by The Echo Nest. The calibration is fuzzy, but in general down is more organic, up is more mechanical and electric; left is denser and more atmospheric, right is spikier and bouncier.

For example, clicking on "melodic death metal" plays a tune from that genre. Clicking on the double arrows open another cloud of bands that belong to that genre:

Flying Chainsaws of Death

Eat These Creepy Baby Pears ... Before They Wake Up and Eat YOU!

We've told you about the strange baby pears before on Neatorama, but I'm sure some of you haven't seen them before. So let's share in the horror joy of these delicious baby pears, found at a supermarket in Beijing, China.

According to Rocket News 24, these "happy/joyful doll pears" are shaped when growing on trees with special molds to make them look like sleeping human babies.

Better eat 'em before they wake up!

Dune, Recreated with Gummi Candies

In Frank Herbert's sci-fi series Dune, Arrakis is a desert planet, but in this diorama, it's a dessert planet inhabited by gummy creatures. CandyWarehouse created this majestic rendition of Paul Atreides riding the giant sandworm in candies:

Crafted from a 2-foot-long gummy worm, Haribo gummy bears, black licorice string, yellow sprinkles, and rock candy crystals! A scene from the great science fiction novel Dune by Frank Herbert. Here we see the giant gummy worm on the desert planet of Arrakis. Ridden by the powerful gummy bear Paul Atreides as he seeks to control the prescious "spice" melange, which gives those who ingest it extended life and some prescient awareness. Muad'Dib!

Like they say, he who controls the sugar, controls the universe! Take a look at more epic pics:

Beach Library

Surf. Sand. Library.

Now those are three words that usually don't go together, but there's no reason they shouldn't. Herman Kompernas built a library on the sandy beach of the Bulgarian Black Sea resort of Albena and stocked it with over 2,500 books in 10 languages.

Confiscation Cabinets: 250 Things Confiscated From Schoolchildren ... Including THIS Scary Homemade Axe!

Guy Tarrant [auto-sound] is an artist and a teacher, and he's got the war trophies to prove it. In this "Confiscation Cabinets," Tarrant and contributors Mercedes Philips and Kim Campbell exhibited his collection of some 250 confiscated things over the past 30 years from 150 different schools in and around London.

Toys and sweets make up a big part of the collection, but there are also bottles of alcohol and actual and makeshift weapons that look like they belong in prison rather than grade schools. The exhibition was on display at The Museum of Childhood in East London, and is on display at the Life Science Centre, Newcastle-upon-Tyne, until November 2014.

Yes, that's a homemade axe confiscated from a Year 7 boy (students at this grade usually are of the age of eleven to thirteen). Tarrant noted that many of the confiscated items are from students with social, emotional and behavioral difficulties.

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:
