Pee-wee Herman released a set of neat-o photos from the movie, which was directed by Tim Burton (his film directorial debut, no less). This photo above shows Tim Burton holding a bunch of snakes while Pee-wee looked on. It's from the Fire in the Pet Store scene, which you can see after the jump:
Redditor nsandz submitted this photo of poolees getting a preview of what the US Marine Corps boot camp would be like! I'm sure the drill
sergeant instructor would yell at the guy for taking an unauthorized drink of water, or for getting his shirt wet.
W00t! We're super excited to have theoretical physicist John Ellis of CERN wear a design bearing his likeness by NeatoShop artist Ikado. In that design, John Ellis sits between the Large Hadron Collider and his famous desk, with stacks of papers towering precariously high.
Come to think of it, did anyone look for the Higgs boson somewhere in John Ellis' office? It's probably just hiding there, somewhere amongst the stacks and stacks of paper.
Thanks for the photo, John!

Food adventurists Sam Bompas and Harry Parr of Bompas & Parr (previously on Neatorama) mashed up meteorology and mixology to bring you a new installation called Alcoholic Architecture, featuring a walk-in cloud of breathable cocktail.
Talk about immersive alcohol environment: fine spirits and mixer are fed through humidifiers to create air super-saturated with alcohol. Alcohol would enter the bloodstream of the person inside the room through the body's mucus membranes (primarily the lungs, but also the eyeballs).

"With humidity at 140 percent, there is so much alcohol in the air, you can seee less than a metre but the high humidity level enhances flavour perception," Bompas and Parr said about their latest installation, "And by breathing the cocktail, alcohol bypasses the liver allowing you to consume 40 percent less (with correspondingly reduced calories) to feel the same effect."
The installation will arrive in Borough Market, London, later this month. As you can imagine, you need to be of legal drinking age to go into the alcoholic cloud. And as they say - breathe responsibly!
We've demoted Pluto and kicked it out of the solar system's planetary club, but don't worry, Pluto still loves us! We know that because a photo taken from the New Horizons space probe, launched by NASA to explore Pluto, its moons, and the Kuiper Belt, revealed that the dwarf planet has a giant heart sign, as seen above.

The image, taken on July 7, 2015, is the closest image of Pluto. The space probe New Horizons was just under 5 million miles from the dwarf planet. The white heart-sized area is about 1,200 miles across and scientists don't exactly know what it means.
"The next time we see this part of Pluto at closest approach, a portion of this region will be imaged at about 500 times better resolution than we see today," said Jeff Moore of NASA’s Ames Research Center. "It will be incredible!"

It's been more than thirty years since the release of original Ghostbusters, so forgive us for being a bit excited about the upcoming Ghostbusters reboot, slated for release in July 2016.
The movie's director Paul Feig has been teasing the world with drips of photos of various Ghostbusters posted on Twitter. The latest photo is of the iconic Ecto-1 - this time more looking like a hearse than the original ambulance (what's up with that giant yellow siren?):
And check out the hood ornament of the new Ecto-1:

Nick Johnson of RoadSnacks crunched data from the government census, Bureau of Labor Statistics, and Sperling's Best Places, and even the FBI crime stats to measure population density, unemployment rates, median income, housing vacancy rate, education, commute times, crime rates, and bad weather to come up with the 10 Worst States to Live In The USA:
- West Virginia
- New Mexico
The best place to live? Nebraska.
See if you agree with Nick's reasoning over at his article on RoadSnacks (Thanks Nick!)

What's the ocean temperature back on July 8, 1650? The corals can tell you!
Humans have been recording weather records for about 150 years, but scientists have found a way to determine ancient ocean temperature and precipitation levels by subjecting corals to the world's most powerful X-ray machine.
Neil Tangri and colleagues at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center took X-rays of an ancient Porites lutea coral off the coast of the American Samoa to get detailed picture of the weather from 500 years ago, with astounding resolution to the week.

High school was easy. Just ask this high school senior, who said what he thought of his high school experience for posterity in his yearbook quote:
"High school was easy. It was like riding a bike. Except the bike was on fire & the ground was on fire & everything was on fire because it was hell."
Wait till real life, kids. Wait till real life.
Aguirre and Hammer went to BSR Cable Park in Waco, Texas, and filmed people having fun sliding down the park's "Royal Flush" giant slide. The video clip has everything that a viral video should have: beautiful women in bikinis, athletic guys doing athletic things, and did we mention a giant water slide? As of today, the video clip has been viewed over 14 million times. Now if that isn't a royal flush, we don't know what is.

He's not the ferryman Charon and that isn't the River Styx, but you get the picture.
Paddlers on Lake Burley in Canberra, Australia, spotted a man dressed as an undertaker in a stand-up paddle board that looks like a coffin decorated with bright plastic flowers. "In the distance, as we came towards the Carillon we noticed a figure emerge from the thick fog," paddler Jeanne Mclauchlan told The Canberra Times, "It was a figure of a man dressed in a tuxedo and top hat on a stand-up-paddle coffin, complete with flowers, paddling toward us."
And where exactly is the mysterious man going?
"We asked 'coffin man', 'Where are you going?' His response was 'To Queanbeyan cemetery as I have a 3pm grave site to prepare'."
"Never tell me the odds!" seems to be the apt sci-fi quote to apply in this situation as described by The Gentleman's Armchair.
If I remember correctly, that quote was spoken in one of the last seasons of Star Trek by Han Solo, while piloting Serenity and running away from the Cylons. Yes, I'm sure that's it!
Mom's dealing with morning sickness, Dad's facepalming nearby, and their daughter proudly holding a jar of Prego pasta sauce. It can only mean one thing: it's a clever "we're pregnant" announcement made just for the Interwebs (or is it an anti-advertisement warning you to stay away from a certain pasta sauce?)

Wildlife photographer Valtteri Mulkahainen snapped this photo of three bear cubs climbing up a tree in Suomussalmi, Finland, while mama bear waited below.
No, the cute cubs aren't playing hide-and-seek with their mom. Rather, they were actually hiding from a male bear that's nearby. Mulkahainen told Ilta-Sanomat that the three cubs climbed up the tree for safety, while the female bear stayed on guard below. The cubs stayed in the tree for quite some time, but the male never showed up.
Andrea Cammalleri of Middletown, Ohio, fought the law ... with a comma and the comma won!
Cammalleri got a traffic ticket back in 2014 in the village of West Jefferso when she parked her pickup truck in a zone that prohibited parking there for longer than 24 hours. The Ohio woman pointed out that the law stated that the types of car that couldn't be parked included "motor vehicle camper" not "motor vehicle, camper" so her pickup truck clearly didn't qualify.
The town's attorney argued that the law's meaning was clear in context, but the judge ruled for Cammalleri. Score 1 for grammar!
So the next time someone said to you that grammar doesn't matter, tell 'em that you can use it to fight traffic tickets!
Step aside, Channing Tatum, and take your Magic Mike XXL home because there's a new man in town and he's wow-ing all the girls with attentiveness and consideration.

From our pal Today I Found Out, here's the new FlickFacts YouTube channel that promises to bring fun facts about some of your favorite movies. The first video is this one: 14 Interesting Facts You Probably Didn't Know About The Terminator.
... According to James Cameron, the idea for the Terminator came to him in a nightmare while he was directing the little known budget horror movie Piranha II: The Spawning. In the nightmare, Cameron claims he was chased by a mechanical skeleton, the image of which became the basis for the T-800 and the plot. [...]
Cameron was [...] hesitant to hire Schwarzenegger to play the film’s hero because at 6 feet 2 inches tall with the body of a Greek god, there were few actors in Hollywood Schwarzenegger wouldn’t tower over. Cameron actually planned to turn Schwarzenegger off the role by intentionally antagonising him over dinner and then going back to the studio to claim they’d clashed over “creative differences”. According to Cameron, the last thing he said to his roommate before leaving for lunch that day was “Do I owe you any money? Because I have to go pick a fight with Conan.”
