No, This Horse Isn't Horsing Around in the Living Room. He's Calmly Watching TV

Neigh, they're not horsing around in the living room. As you can clearly see, they're calmly watching TV together.

But where did the horse come from? They must've nicked it from somewhere.

Lost in New York: Pregnant Tarantula

You've undoubtedly seen missing pet posters taped light poles near your home, but have you seen this distressing (in more ways than one) "lost" poster about Penelope, the Mexican Red Rump Tarantula?

Bonus: She's pregnat with hundreds of babies.

The sign, posted a neighborhood in Brooklyn, New York, in tsaid that the tarantula looks menacing, but she's mostly harmless:

I know she looks crazy scary, but she's mostly harmless. She's pregnant, so I'm hoping to find her before she has her babies. She's mostly active at night and likes to hide in dark corners. She shouldn't bite, but sometimes jumps when frightened. If you find her, please try to catch her and put her in a tupperware bowl with a few holes in the top for air.

So, Brooklynites you've got two choices: catch the tarantula or move out!

10 Absurdly Fantastic Looping Portraits by Romain Laurent


One Loop Portrait a Week #35 by Romain Laurent
Lee Towndrow is a teriffic - albeit a bit monotone - table drummer

Now THIS is what animated GIFs are made for!

New York City-based photographer Romain Laurent started to create looping portraits as a personal challenge late last year. "As far as the intention of the series, it's a way for me to explore a hybrid medium, experiment and being spontaneous while sticking to a short weekly deadline," Laurent told Colossal, "There isn't a common concept between each loop, I just 'go with the flow' and see what comes to my mind each week."

Remembering Names

Someone told me the secret to remembering the names of people I just met, but I promptly forgot all about it. But I'm comforted that I'm not alone, as this comic from Sarah Andersen of Doodle Time illustrates.

The A-Pooh-Calypse is Here!

Oh, Bother! The a-Pooh-calypse is here and it started in the Kazimierz Dolny, Poland, where hundreds of Pooh streamed out of the Hundred Acre Wood in search of honey (or is it human brains? In that case, poor Christopher Robin ... We all know that the bear ain't all that fuzzy and cuddly)

The pooh-lice didn't stand a chance!

We know that they love Winnie the Pooh in Poland (there's even a street in Warsaw named after the bear), but they didn't love him that much. This image is a clever Photoshop of a single guy in a Winnie the Pooh costume wandering the town's central square)

Amazing Anatomical Body Paint Art


Photo: Thomas van de Wall

We've featured Gesine Marwedel's amazing body paint art before on Neatorama a while ago, but she's added many more amazing artwork.

"Body painting is not just paint to a living canvas; it is receiving the body shapes in the design, painting on and with the body," Marwedel wrote on her website. "It is the transformation of a human being into a breathing, moving, living work of art."

We're particularly struck with the surreal anatomical body paint designs. For example:

Cute Puppy Rescued by Woman Turned Out to be a Wily Coyote


Wily coyote disguises self as cute puppy dog - via Imgur

"I thought it was a puppy at first," said Cheyenne Harboe, "Then I got closer, and he was really skinny, and I thought he was probably sick." So the Fort Worth, Texas, woman, wrapped the animal in a blanket, named him Taco, and took him to a nearby animal hospital.

That's where she learned that the cute puppy she thought she was rescuing turned out to be a coyote. And not just any coyote - it's probably a coyote with rabies.

Veterinarian Karen Metzler told FOX 4, "The lack of fear in this puppy sets off alarm bells for the potential for rabies. The potential for rabies exposure is present in wildlife, and coyotes are known to be a high reservoir host for rabies." Animal control was called and the coyote was euthanized.

Harboe's adventure didn't have the sweet ending she had envisioned. "I kind of regretted like trying to help him out 'cause of the whole animal control thing," she said.

Learn to Fly Here!

You've probably seen the ironic photo of a crashed plane in a tree next to the sign that says "Learn to Fly Here" floating around the web or in your inbox, but you probably didn't know the story behind it.

Check-Six has the article, originally written by Christopher L. Freeze for the November 2007 issue of AOPA Pilot about the pilot who crashed:

... Brookham was flying the downwind leg of his first pattern, to the northeast of the runway, and starting to descend when, at around 5 pm and for no apparent reason, his engine lost power.

Brookham had an immediate feeling of something being very wrong. [...] 

Finishing with a check of his fuel systems, and unable to restart the engine, Brookham glided downwards.  But, with only 40 knots of airspeed, in the pitch black of the night, and with a wind-milling propeller, his options were limited.  He chose his base to land, lining up with the east-west road running near the airport, Judge Orr Road, and continued to glide downward for a forced landing.  He hoped to land on Judge Orr Road, and have the airplane stopped by the time he reached the intersection of Highway 24.

Brookham stated, "I was just trying to get the airplane down safe."  He knew that there were homes in the vicinity of the airport, and didn’t want to hurt anyone.  But, in the darkness, in the seconds before touchdown, as he tilted the plane’s nose downwards, he saw a frightening pairs of lights - those of an oncoming car!

Carl Sagan Explained Death to His Young Daughter

Death is a topic of conversation that any child would ask their parents about, and many of us would deflect the question out of discomfort. "The kids are just too young to understand" is a common excuse.

But what if your father is a world famous scientist? How would he answer the question about death?

Sasha Sagan, daughter of astronomer Carl Sagan, told us the time when, as a young child, she asked her father about death:

One day when I was still very young, I asked my father about his parents. I knew my maternal grandparents intimately, but I wanted to know why I had never met his parents.

“Because they died,” he said wistfully.

“Will you ever see them again?” I asked.

He considered his answer carefully. Finally, he said that there was nothing he would like more in the world than to see his mother and father again, but that he had no reason — and no evidence — to support the idea of an afterlife, so he couldn’t give in to the temptation.

“Why?”

Then he told me, very tenderly, that it can be dangerous to believe things just because you want them to be true. You can get tricked if you don’t question yourself and others, especially people in a position of authority. He told me that anything that’s truly real can stand up to scrutiny.

As far as I can remember, this is the first time I began to understand the permanence of death. As I veered into a kind of mini existential crisis, my parents comforted me without deviating from their scientific worldview.

Model Airplane is Actually Yummy Chocolate

Need a fix of chocolate? Robert Cooper of the University of the Arts London, Central Saint Martins, has got something for you: a chocolate airplane that you can build into Airfix-style models.

The concept, designed for a project by chocolate company Cadbury, involves chocolate-filled shapes that are cracked from a wafer sheet. Customers can then assemble the models before eating the parts:

According to Deezen:

Cooper's design uses hollow-wafer technology – a wafer shell, made in two halves and formed over a mould. The resulting shapes are stamped out of the sheets and the two halves are brought together and filled with chocolate, which glues them in place.

In addition to the chocolate model airplane, Cooper envisioned other model-style chocolate snacks, including race car, horse, and even a Tyrannosaur rex.

This Japanese Shrine is Dedicated to Curing Hemorrhoids

Now this is a shrine we can all get behind! There's a lot of religious places where you can pray to be cured of your ailments, but this one is rather specific. The Kunigami Shrine in Tochigi Prefecture, Japan, is dedicated to curing ... hemorrhoids.

According to tradition, those who wash their bums in the nearby river and then ate egg offerings at the Shinto shrine would be cured of hemorrhoids. But cleaning bare butts in the river is now frowned upon, so the shrine offers a "Butt Washing Stone" where people can point their backsides to, chant a few incantations, and be cured forever!

IT Media reports that about seventy people attended a recent festival at the shrine, and that fun was had by all!

Concrete-Eating Robot

Demolishing a concrete building is usually done in a messy, brute force kind of way - with wrecking balls or explosives and the ensuing cloud of dust and debris - but if Omer Haciomeroglu has his way, that will be a way of the past.

Haciomeroglu, a student at the Umeå Institute of Design in Sweden, has designed a robot that literally erases concrete walls. The ERO (short for "erosion") robot uses pressurized water to break down concrete. "High-pressure water jets attack the micro cracks on the concrete surface, making it come apart," Haciomeroglu said to Fast Company, "It leaves the metal rebar inside naked and ready for reuse."

The broken down concrete are separated into its components of cement, sand, and aggregate, and packaged into neat bags to be transported to recycling plants - or even sold to someone constructing a new building nearby.

Check out more conceptual designs below:

Honk For Grandma!

Why spring for a hearse when you can carry grandma to the funeral (we hope) Little Miss Sunshine-style. This SUV was seen in Florida carrying a casket on its roof, with a hand-scribbled note on its back window saying "Honk for Grandma!"

We wonder if anyone actually honked. Via Huffington Post

After Celebrating 31 Anniversaries at a Red Lobster, a Widow Went Alone. It was a Normal Meal ... Until She Got The Bill.

For 31 years, redditor Coppin-it-washin-it's parents celebrated their wedding anniversary at a Red Lobster restaurant in Columbia, Missouri. In March, after his dad passed away, his sister decided to keep the tradition alive and took their mom out to the same restaurant for an anniversary meal.

The waitress asked if there was a special occasion, and the sister explained the situation:

The waitress asked if there was a special occasion or if they were just hungry. My sister explained that my parents had been going there every year for their anniversary. The waitress then asked why my dad wasn’t there and they explained how he had passed away in March. She said she was sorry to hear that and then it was just a normal meal like any other after that. Until they got the bill.


via Buzzfeed

Instead of a bill, the widow and her daughter got this note that said:

We are sorry to hear about your husband's passing, but we appreciate you loyalty in spending 31 years of your anniversary with us. For your appreciation your meal is on us! We look forward to spending you're your next anniversary with us!

Sincerely, Red Lobster & your server, Taylor

The image has since been deleted, but Red Lobster confirmed the story. "What Taylor, the server, and Chad, the manager on duty, did demosntrates how our teams live Red Lobster's core values of genuine caring and hospitality each day," spokesperson Erica Ettori told NewsChannel 5. "All of us at Red Lobster are truly proud of the Columbia team and appreciate their commitment to making every guest's dining experience a special one. We also extend our wishes to the family who dined with us and look forward to serving them again next year!"

Duck of Justice


via Buzzfeed

Gotham has the bat, but the city of Bangor, Maine, has something that will have criminals ... ahem, "quacking" in their boots. Meet the Duck of Justice, the unofficial mascot of the Bangor Police Department.

"I happen to believe that police officers are a pretty humorous bunch," said Sgt. Tim Cotton to the Associated Press, "I want to read something that at least has some humorous undertones. I wouldn't connect to a page that I didn't want to read." So Sgt. Cotton, who's in charge of the police department's Facebook page, decided to feature a stuffed duck that he rescued out of the trash.

"We've been using Facebook for a few years of course, I just asked if I could do it a bit differently, present us [the police department] a bit differently. I think in general people like to be entertained. I know I do, so if you can combine information with a bit of humor, then why not?" he added to Bangor Daily News.

And so the Duck of Justice or DOJ was born.

Sgt. Cotton used the duck to connect with the public in sometimes humorous, sometimes serious ways. For example:


Officer Larby (what a ham!) and the DOJ have taken some time for a buckle-up selfie
to remind you to just do it.


The DOJ took off for the races this afternoon and he was whistling "More Than A Feeling" and I can't find my wallet ... he must be feeling lucky!

At Last! A Veggie Burger That Contains Real Beef!

As the ads proclaim, Crompton's Beef Farm from Dorset, England, has cracked the marketing challenge of somehow selling meatful meatless veggie burger. "Made with the finest cuts of topside and sirloin from our own herd, Crompton's Veggie Burgers are the only vegetarian burgers on the market made with 100% REAL BEEF! All the TASTE of beef, all the GOODNESS of beef and all the BEEF of beef in a 100% vegetarian burger."

Facebook Commenters are Steaming MAD at Steven Spielberg for Killing This "Innocent Animal"

A Facebook post aiming to publicly shame a recreational hunter posing with his recent kill picked an unfortunate example ... From the post:

Disgraceful photo of recreational hunter happily posing next to a Triceratops he just slaughtered. Please share so the world can name and shame this despicable man.

Problem is: the man is Steven Spielberg, who directed the 1993 dinosaur movie Jurassic Park, sitting next to a Triceratops model. And the fact that Triceratops went extinct 68 million years ago didn't seem to satisfy some of the most ardent Facebook posters.

When it was pointed out that the man was Spielberg, one commenter said "I dont care who he is he should not have shot that animal."

Another Facebook commenter added "I think zoos are the best way to keep these innocent animals safe ... a**holes like this piece of sh*t are going into these beautiful animals HOME and killing them ..." To which we can only say, clever girl.

Stalker Filing Cabinet Chases People Around

You just can't get away from paperwork. It follows you around!

Jaap de Maat, a graduate student at the Royal College of Art, United Kingdom, created a filing cabinet that follows people around. The art piece, titled I Know What You Did Last Summer, looks like a run-of-the-mill two-drawer gray filing cabinet, but when you approach it, it comes to life ... and starts chasing you!

De Maat was inspired to create the stalker filing cabinet to remind people that their online data is basically doing the same thing - just invisibly. "Around the period ... Snowden came out with his bombshell and I was quite shocked people mainly worried about surveillance," de Maat told Wired, "After more research I kind of wanted to make the point not so much people surveying us, but the fact it gets stored forever."

"I thought of the example of a lady that wanted to be teacher, but at the end of her course she didn't get a certificate because they'd Googled her and saw pictures of her drunk on the internet. They said that was inappropriate for a teacher. People need to be aware of online storage."

After acquiring the filing cabinet, de Maat installed wheels, distance sensors and an Arduino board to enable the cabinet to follow people during its exhibition at the lobby of the RCA building. Check out the video clip:
