Amazing and Surreal Pictures Taken by a Drone

Photographer Aydın Büyüktaş traveled the Western states of Texas, Arizona, New Mexico, Nevada and California. He then used two drones to take pictures and compiled multiple images to create a 3D creation with drafting software.

The artist doesn't say how many images it takes to create each final rendering in Photoshop, but one thing's for sure -the end result is amazing.

The Most Educated Place in Each State

Business Insider compiled this cool map that uses census data to determine the most educated place in each state. Their calculations are based on the percentage of adults over 25 with a bachelor's or higher degree.

Mental Floss readers noted some interesting details about the map, like the how many of the cities are on state borders and also how the cities seem to correlate with the most high-income parts of the states as well.

It's also interesting to see how drastically the numbers vary across the country. In North Dakota, for example, Fargo is the most educated city with 39% of adults having earned a bachelor's degree, whereas Lareda, California leads the country with an impressive 89.5%.

You can see a full-sized version of the map on Business Insider.

Fascinating Facts About the Pharaohs of Egypt

You probably know that the pharaohs were powerful rulers of Egypt, but you may be surprised by what you don't know about them.

Or that the female pharaoh Hapshetsut asked to be depicted as a man by all artists in order that naysayers wouldn't criticize her ability to rule based on her gender?

Man Working From Home Names His Dog "Employee of the Quarter" Every Quarter

Working from home can be lonely -sometimes all we have to keep us motivated, entertained and cheerful is our pets who have no idea we're even working. That's why telecommuting Accuride employee Michael Reeg decided that his dog Meeka should be named "Employee of the Quarter" every quarters. He even gave her furry friend an appropriate plaque to celebrate the occassion.

Michael claims Meeka really earned her title:

“I try out my sales pitches and presentations on her. She’s not easily impressed or swayed. All she hears is ‘blah, blah, blah, Meeka’—but she likes to hear my voice and I love that she pays attention.

You can read an interview with Michael over at The Dodo.

The Trocks: The Drag Ballet

Ballet was once largely a male pastime as it requires a lot of strength, but over time it has become largely associated solely with women. But Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo prove that anything women can do men can do just as well only with a comedic twist.

Each member of the drag ballet troop plays both a woman character and a male one. The athleticism is pretty intense -moves designed for female dancers can be particularly hard for heavier male bodies. That also results in the occassionall misstep, but fortunately for the Trocks, the routine (like most drag performances) already has comedy built in, so mistakes just add to the entertainment value.

You can read more about the drag ballet troop over on DCist.

This is Why You Don't Wear a Green Tie to a Press Conference

I don't care if you're the Queen of England or the White House Press Secretary, if you're a public persona wearing something strikingly green in front of millions of people, you should expect someone to mess around by chroma keying your tie.

Sean Spicer just learned his lesson when he wore a green tie to celebrate Saint Patrick's Day to a White House Press Conference and quickly inspired Jesse McLaren to make this video using the tie as a green screen.

This Cat Tried to Eat a Snake and Got More Than She Bargained For

Cats are known for their hunting skills, but that doesn't mean they always know what they're doing. This little kitty found out the hard way that hunting is not always as easy as it seems. 

(Video Link)

Unfortunately for Marianne, she ate the snake from the tail end and the snake saw a convenient hole to escape in, which happened to be her nose. Marianne's humans were there to help remove the snake, but while the kitty was obviously happy about having the snake pulled from its nose, the snake didn't survive the encounter.

This Snake is All Smiles

Justine Kobylka is a snake breeder who specializes in making creatures with new and fascinating scale patterns. Her newest creation took eight years to perfect, and it has made her quite famous on the internet as she created a snake adorned with emojis. 

(Video Link)

A lot of people dislike snakes, whether because they think they look gross, because they aren't cuddly or because they don't seem as loving as other pets, but these smiley pythons might change some of those perceptions (though they still won't feel very cuddly).

The Polish Village Covered in Flowers

Zalipie is a small town in Poland that has a strange and beautiful tradition of painting flowers on just about everything -dating back from the 1800s. 

Of course, like all traditions, it had to start somewhere. In this case, it was because the locals started getting new furnaces with chimneys in the 1800s and women decided to cover up blackened walls in their homes with floral paintings. Eventually the tradition spread to other areas of the home and even outside the homes and now it seems the whole town is covered in flowers.

Even the trees have flowers painted on them!

See more pictures of Zalipie's floral paintings over at Travel and Leisure.

Guy Makes Custom Hats for Toad That Shows Up on His Porch Nightly

Chris Newsome noticed that night after night, the same toad kept showing up on his porch. He loved seeing his toad friend every day and decided to help improve the little guy's life by adding a little flair to his style by making him stylish foam hats.

The toad kept coming back after he gave him the first hat, so Chris kept making him new hats every day. 

Maybe the toad liked getting to play dress up or maybe he just liked having a friend to hang out with every day, but either way, the two certainly have a strange and wonderful relationship.

The Single Best Thing in Every State

We've posted a lot of articles featuring the best ______ in any given state, but all of those focus on a specific subject. If you've ever wondered what the absolute best thing in any given state is, you won't wanna miss this Thrillist article. I can't attest to most other states since I haven't lived in them, but the Pacific Coast Highway might very well be the best thing in California. And from what I've seen of Arizona, the Grand Canyon is pretty up there. And Maine lobster is pretty amazing too, though you don't actually have to go to Maine to enjoy it.

So check out the best thing about each state here and be sure to debate the accuracy in the comments section.

This Parrot Can Perfectly Imitate a Baby

(Video Link)

This parrot must be around a baby 24/7 because he sure has all of those cries and wines down. To test how accurate his sounds are, I made sure to crank the volume up to see if my dog noticed -he is fascinated by baby cries. Sure enough, he sure fell for it, so it must be dead on.

What do you parents think about the bird's impression? Dead on, or dead wrong?
