Ridiculous Google Autocompletes Illustrated

Twaggies artists illustrate the funniest tweets on the web, but in this instance Josh Mecouch of Formal Sweatpants (previously on Neatorama) took to Google search autocompletes for inspiration. And boy, people search for some really, really, really strange things:

Never put jam on a magnet

Squirrels are the devil's oven mitts

Tomorrow I will scald myself with tea

Visit College Humor for a few more strange Google searches illustrated, including "poptarts are not kleenex" and "Americans think Obama is a cactus"

ICONS: Putting Rodin, Forrest Gump, Mad Men, The Creation of Adam, Reservoir Dogs and Daft Punk in One Fluid Shot

What do Rodin's The Thinker, Forrest Gump, Mad Men, The Creation of Adam, Reservoir Dogs and Daft Punk have in common? This wonderful clip:

In their advertisement titled "Icons," British newspaper The Sunday Times stitched together six iconic scenes from art and modern culture into one fluid sequence.

From the website:

The Sunday Times 'ICONS' - This is all about those iconic cultural images that we pin to our walls and stick in our minds. We all have our favourites. Heisenberg, Kraftwerk, and Banksy’s kissing coppers all featured in early scripts, but we wanted to take a snapshot of what’s making the headlines in 2014. Daft Punk winning big at the Grammy's, The final series of Mad Men, and Tarantino are all over the media right now. These people and their work have left an indelible mark and we’ll probably still be talking about them in ten, twenty maybe even a hundred years years time. The TV spot is a respectful nod to it all.

Icons is directed by ad agency Grey.

The Making Of video is equally fantastic:

Slacklining Over Lake Green

That's Austrian adventurer Michael "Mich" Kemeter slacklining across the gorgeous Green Lake in Austria.

It took Kemeter 35 attempts in 20 days back in September 2013 to achieve the feat - and once he did, he set a new world record (beating his old one) of slacklining a distance of 250 meters.

You can see Kemeter's attempts as well as beautiful shots of Lake Green in the video clip above and read all about it over at Redbull.

Lil' Drac, the Cutest Baby Bat You'll See Today

Meet Lil' Drac.

The orphaned short-tailed fruit bat was abandoned by his stressed-out mother (not an uncommon behavior, apparently) and was rescued and hand-raised by volunteers from Bat World Sanctuary.

Thanks to bad portrayal in movies, we are so used to thinking of bats as evil creatures, but according to Bat World's website, that's a bad rap:

Bats  are clean, gentle and intelligent, they are vital to the ecosystem, and they enhance our lives in many ways. Fruit and nectar bats bring us approximately 450 commercial products and over 80 different medicines through seed dispersal and pollination. Up to 98% of all rainforest regrowth comes from seeds that have been spread by fruit bats. Insect-eating bats are literal vacuum cleaners of the night skies, eating millions upon millions of harmful bugs. They protect us by eating insect-pests that destroy crops as well as insects that cause human disease.

Watch the cute little baby bat rock his body while hanging upside down to comfort himself after he's been fed (with milk soaked onto a tiny foam tip).

Meet The German Prince That Skis for Mexico in a Mariachi Suit for the Sochi Winter Olympics


Photo: Mexican Olympic Committee

How to explain Prince Hulbertus von Hohenlohe.

Let's see. Prince Hubertus, also known by his nickname Royal Disaster, is an actual prince. He's descended from the reigning dynasty of a former principality in what is now Germany. He was born in Mexico as a son to Prince Alfonso Hohenlohe and Princess Ira Fürstenberg. So he's a Mexican citizen and a German prince, all in one.


Photo: Hubertus von Hohenlohe

Oh, and he's also the lone member of Mexico's Alpine Skiing Team in the Sochi Winter Olympics. And even better: he's got a one-of-a-kind Mariachi-themed suit:

Whatever happens at the sporting event, we know that he's already won gold medal with that suit!

A Mountain of Railroad Ties

How do you climb a mountain of stacked railway ties? This 1937 photograph by Fox for the Daily Herald was taken in the Great Western Railway sleeper creosoting works in Hayes, Middlesex, England ("railway sleeper" is what railroad ties are called in the rest of the world; creosote is a chemical used to preserve the wood).

As explained by the Daily Herald Archive from the National Media Museum, the steps are created from the individual ties themselves so workers can reach the top without using ladders.

How to Parallel Park Like a Ninja

You're driving along looking for parking when you see the perfect spot. But you're a few lanes too far away and the jerks driving alongside you won't let you pull over.

Do you:

a) Say goodbye to that perfect parking spot and drive away

b) Stop the car mid-traffic, put on the blinkers and pray no one grab the parking spot while you wait till it's safe to pull over

or 

c) Park like a ninja, just like this viral video clip shows?

According to this YouTube clip, a Moscow driver chose option C. The whole thing was captured by a dashboard cam.

After his death, his family wanted to show Amaro as a boxer, so Elsie Rodriguez of Marin Funeral Home in San Juan, Puerto Rico, posed him in a makeshift boxing ring. As reported by MSN, Amaro was posed standing up wearing a yellow training hoodie and sunglasses, with hands in boxing gloves.

Peecycling


Photo: Abe Noe-Hays/Rich Earth Institute

You care about the environment, you say. You compost your organic wastes and recycle the rest. But what about your pee? Do you peecycle? No? What kind of a treehugger are you?

Everybody pees. In fact, Americans produce about 30 billion gallons of urine every year. That, according to Kim Nace of Rich Earth Institute, represents a valuable resource that most of us just flush away. Instead, Nace proposed that we recycle our urine and use it as fertilizer as it is a "local, accessible, free, sanitary source of nitrogen and phosphorus."

In other words, if you need a natural fertilizer, urine luck!

But how good is urine as fertilizer anyways? Last year, the Institute carried out an experiment to test it.


Photo: Betty Jenewin/Rich Earth Institute

As reported by National Geographic, that thanks to sixty enthusiastic community members, the Institute collected 600 gallons of urine to fertilize a field of hay in a Brattleboro, Vermont, farm. A 50/50 mix of urine and water was applied to a test strip of land. The result was impressive:


Photo: Abe Noe-Hays/Rich Earth Institute

Rich Earth Institute co-founder and Research Director Abe Noe-Hays said in an interview in the Bennington Banner, "the amount of nutrients in a year's worth of urine from one person is almost all the fertilizer needed to grow food for that person in that span."

Magic Eye Music Video

Remember the Magic Eye books from the 90s? If you've been waiting for someone to make it in video form, your wait is over.

The Young Rival has released the music video to its song Black is Good completely in autostereogram. The random dot autostereogram music video is best viewed in HD (this one is meant for the "parallel-eye" method - if you have trouble seeing it, you can view it in the cross-eyed version).

Jared Raab and Tomasz Dysinski who created the video explained how it's made:

BUT WAIT, THIS IS A VIDEO. HOW DID YOU MAKE IT?

This is where it gets technical. To make your own autostereogram, one must first create a thing called a "depth map" which is a 2D representation of 3D depth information. We collected real-time depth data of Young Rival performing the song using an X-Box Kinect hooked up to a computer. The computer was running software called RGBD toolkit, designed for capturing the depth information from the Kinect using its built-in infrared system. Once we had our depth information, we unpacked it into image sequences and edited these sequences as if they were regular video. The only difference in the editing process was that depth was represented by luminosity. For fun, you can view the black and white depth-map version HERE (password required - hint: what type of animal appears at 2:30?). With much trial and error, we then ran the data through an algorithm which took each frame of depth information, converted it into a random dot stereogram image, and repacked it into the final video. Lastly, there was one more colour pass at the end, and voila.

How Fast Can You Read?

Staples has created a pretty nifty online test where you can compare your reading speed to the national average. The test times you while you read a few passages, then asks you some questions to gauge your comprehension level.

I scored 993 words per minute, which made me almost three times faster than the national average. But that's still much slower than most speed readers who can read at about 1,500 words per minute at 50% comprehension (the world speed reading champion, Anne Jones, can read at an astounding 4,700 words per minute at 67% comprehension).

The site told me that if I maintained this reading speed, I could read War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy in a mere 9 hours and 51 minutes and The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien in 8 hours and 2 minutes.

How fast can you read? Take the test.

Did You Know: George Takei Grew Up in Japanese American Internment Camp during World War II

Here's something I didn't know about Star Trek star George Takei: he and his family were sent to live in a Japanese internment camp during World War II.

Takei wrote in Huffington Post:

Over seventy years ago, my family and I were forced from our home in Los Angeles at gunpoint by U.S. soldiers and sent to Rohwer, all because we happened to look like the people who bombed Pearl Harbor. I was just five years old, and would spend much of my childhood behind barbed wire in that camp and, later, another in California called Tule Lake. One hundred twenty thousand other Japanese Americans from the West Coast suffered a similar fate.

I was the keynote speaker at the dedication ceremony of the museum. [...] After the dedication ceremony, we moved on to the actual Rohwer camp site about 20 minutes away.

One of the audio kiosks is placed just about at the site of the crude barrack that housed my family and me -- block 6, barrack 2, unit F. We were little more than numbers to our jailers, each of us given a tag to wear to camp like a piece of luggage. My tag was 12832-C.
