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!

Have you seen one in your city? Or - gasp - are you one of them?

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

Remember the gruesome devourer of trees that we featured on Neatorama? We've found something equally - if not more gruesome: the Flying Chainsaws of Death, flown by helicopter and used to trim trees nearby powerlines in Johnson City, Tennessee.

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:

Success! Then, you need a hole in your pants ...

Flower Beards


via Will It Beard

Macho yet sensitive, and if flower beard isn't a girl magnet, we don't know what is.

When beard artist (beardist, as we've called him previously on Neatorama) Pierce Thiot of Will It Beard? artfully arranged flowers on his beard, a new summer hipster trend was born. Just think of it as a manly equivalent of a flower crown. That or buffoonery, depending if you like beards or hipsters.

Feast your eyes on these wonderful flower beards:

Somewhere Underneath This Giant Fluff of Cuteness is a Rabbit. Somewhere.


Photo: Betty Chu

Somewhere underneath this giant fluff of cuteness is a rabbit. Somewhere.

Pictured above is Lilianna, an English Angora rabbit that belonged to Betty Chu of San Jose, California (previously on Neatorama). Chu, a retired Economics Professor, has a passion of raising and showing her prize animals in shows across the country as part of the Northern California Angora Guild.

There's no money in raising and breeding these rabbits, Chu said to Huffington Post, but they are "very lovable [and] can be litterbox trained like cats and would follow their owners like dogs."

If cute photos of these rabbits have got you hoppin' with excitement, you're in luck. The Northern California Angora Guild has many more photos of those amazingly fluffy English Angora rabbits:


13-month-old English Angora rabbit named Ida


A junior tort English Angora rabbit


An agouti English Angora rabbit named Chestnut

Zoo Jeans: Stylishly Ripped by Dangerous Animals

Forget acid washed jeans! Those are so passé. The new "in" look is animal-shredded jeans.

In order to raise funds for the Kamine Zoo in Hitachi City, Japan, volunteers and zoo supporters of the Mineko Club wrap old tires and giant rubber balls with sheets of denim, and let lions, tigers, and bears "play" with them. They then recover the ripped denim and sew them into Zoo Jeans.

The first batches are up for auction, and one series - the Zoo Jeans Model T1, which have been expertly ripped by tigers - have fetched upwards of a thousand dollars.

Kirk and Spock Travel Back in Time to 2014

In Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home, Captain Kirk, Spock, and the rest of the Star Trek crew traveled back in time to 1986. Well, it's a good thing that they didn't travel back in time to 2014, because they'd be laughed out of San Francisco for those "antique" communicators, as this Bizarro comic panel shows.

After all, this is an extremely primitive and paranoid culture we've got in 21st century America.

Calculus vs Real People

Hooray for imaginary people who study calculus! They're an integral part of the MIT community, where this sign was spotted. "Real People" points to the MIT Sloan School of Management, whereas the "Calculus" is pointing to the rest of the campus.

Open Slowly For Dramatic Effect

Don't just pop open the pizza box when you get your pizza delivery. Open slowly for dramatic effect, as this pizza box from Papa Gino's pizzeria in Massachusetts said.

It won't hurt if you have a little drumroll sound effects playing in the background.
