The Best Drinks at Disneyland

Disneyland itself may not sell alcohol, but their other properties in Anaheim do -and honestly, even the mocktails available at Disneyland are often superior to any drink at your local neighborhood bar. Travel and Leisure has compiled a full list of cocktails, mocktails and even sodas that you won't want to miss on your next visit. The beautiful drink above (as photographed by adambryan) is the Fun Wheel, which is on the secret drink menu at the Cove Bar in California Adventure. 

Prefer to stay a little more sober? Then check out the Pomegranate Pirhana Lemonade sold at the Bengal Barbecue (photographed here by terriblewendybird). Of course, the Boysen Apple Freeze and Doc's Grape Tonic also sound pretty inviting.

So check out the full list over at Travel and Leisure

One Thing Trump Supporters and Protesters Can Agree On: Free Pot

There's been a lot of news about the inauguration this year and it mostly focused on how divided people are about a Trump presidency -he has tons of die-hard supporters, but also tons of die-hard critics. But one thing that brought people of all walks of life together at the inauguration yesterday was the promise of free weed for all. 

Pro-marijuana legalization group the DC Cannabis Coalition, also known as DCMJ, rolled 8,000 joints and gave them out to the public asking only that those recieving the goods be over 21 and have an ID to prove it. The group's aim was to bring attention to the plight of marijuana legalization (it is currently legal to have and share -though not to sell in DC) under the looming shadow of Trump's selected Attorney General, who is very outspoken about being anti-marijuana.

This Shark Loves Cuddling

Generally speaking, marine animals don't like to be touched but that's not always the case. In fact, professional diver Rick Anderson has a close friendship with a Port Jackson shark that constantly seeks out his pets and belly scratches.

It all started when he started trying to show his diving students how friendly sharks can be by playing with one freshly hatched shark. From that point on, whenever Anderson dived in those waters, the shark would find him and seek cuddles and scratches. This has gone on for seven years, "it got to the point that if I didn’t notice her, she would come out and tap me on the legs until I held out my arms for a cuddle, often to the amazement of my students," he says.

Of course Rick encourages other divers to be respectful of wild animals,"they’ll let you know if they don’t want to be handled," he says, adding, "If you touch some of them, you can also wipe off their protective layers of skin." So please, don't go running around trying to pet under water animals just because this shark is adorable.

You can read more about the shark and Rick and see more pictures on Buzzfeed.

The Most Deadly Path in England

(Image via Wikipedia)

Just off of the coast of Essex lies Foulness Island, which is home to the most deadly pathway in all of Britian. Known as the Broomway, the path travels several hundred yards off the coast stretching for three miles as it leads the walker through sand and mud flats that are washed clear by the sea twice a day every day.

At least 100 people have died on the Broomway, and those are only the recorded victims. Of those 100, only sixty six of the bodies were recovered and they have since been laid to rest in the small churchyard nearby.

Of course, the quickly rising tide is only one of the deadly threats to walkers on what Edwardian newspapers termed "The Doomway." While the path was marked by the locals who buried brooms in the mud long ago, hence the name "Broomway," in rain, mist or fog, the pathway can become dangerously disorienting with little to guide the walker along the path of shining sand. Even in good weather, a wrong step can leave you stuck in deep mud or quicksand. 

Of course, the path wasn't built just to be a deadly, scenic attraction. Until 1932, it was the only way to reach the Foulness Island from the mainland without a boat.

You can read more about the Broomway and a detailed account of walking the treacherous path in this BBC article.

People Are Knitting Sweaters to Help Rescued Elephants

Elephants may be jumbo-sized, but they're still quite emotionally sensitive. So the elephants rescued from abuse who live at the Wildlife SOS Elephant Conservation and Care Center rely on the compassion and love of their caretakers. 

Unfortuantely, as much as the voluteers at the center love their charges, they can't hug their whole bodies all day long to keep them warm during a surprising cold spell in India. So instead, the volunteers are working to knit the elephants jumbo-sized sweaters to keep them cozy and warm during the freezing winter weather.

Each sweater takes about four weeks to make, but that's a small price to pay when it means keeping rescued elephants happy and healthy.

Why The Three Laws of Robotics Have to be Arranged the Way They Are

Isaac Asimov's three rules of robotics are at the core of all of his robot stories and fans of not only his works, but countless other authors who have touched on a future filled with robots are familiar with the results. But simply re-arranging the order of the stories makes for an entirely different set of scenarios -most of which are terrible. XKCD explores these other outcomes in this simple-but-effective comic.

This Bad-Haired Moth With a Weird Penis Was Just Named After Donald Trump

Just in time for the inauguration, scientists have named the first ever animal after Donald Trump. A few species were named after Obama during his term and now it's Trump's turn. Of course, there is always a reason behind naming a new species after someone and in this case, it's the moth's strange, scaly forehead that bears resemblance to its namesake's yellow helmet of hair. The moth also has a strangely curved penis, but there's no word on if that went into the naming decision or not. 

Those who wish to see the N. donaldtrumpi in person will have to visit California or Baja Mexico, where they are presumably scoping out land to build a great wall.

We're Not Worthy of This Giant Grilled Cheese Sandwich

The problem with grilled cheese is that it limits you to the size of the bread and sure there are some relatively large sour doughs out there, but a classic grilled cheese is all about the white bread. Of course, if you make your own bread then the size is the limit.

(Video Link)

The geniuses over at HellthyJunkFood did precisely that and the finished project, which took 20 slices of cheese to finish, is a true 3,650 calorie, comfort food masterpiece. 

You can find the recipe here.

The best ones even seem to be the most extreme ones:

Chicken and Waffle Donut Holes

Essentially they are simply waffle batter stuffed with chicken pieces and deep fried, but the combination of these meant-to-be foods is just too perfect to be ignored.

A Chillingly Awesome Serving Suggestion

You don't really need a spoon for a shot glass in most cases, but when the spoon and shot glass compliment each other as well as this crawling hand glass and bone spoon do, practicality certainly gives way to aesthetics. 

The creations, by artist CTCordingly, come in a multitude of colors and are 3D printed in porcelain. They're perfect for any creepy party, especially a creepy dinner party with a tasting menu that includes a soup course (since it's the perfect excuse for a tiny amount of liquid that still requires a spoon).

So check out the glasses and spoons here.

David Bowie's Jareth Costume Who Wore It Better: The Cat or the Dog?

Jareth the Goblin King from The Labyrinth is David Bowie's most memorable movie role. A year after his death, it seems only appropriate to see animals doing their best to celebrate his legendary role. But cats and dogs are always in competition, so now it's time to ask, who wore it better -kitty or doggy Jareth? Somehow cats just seem like a better David Bowie match...

but this dog's costume is just amazing. Plus, we've previously seen a dog naved David Bowie, but never one who wanted to be David Bowie.

This Cat's Post-Rescue Transformation is Amazing

Sinbad the cat is a Persian kitty that belonged to an elderly man in Chicago. Unfortunately, as her owner got older, his mental health declined and the kitty's thick, long hair started matting as he neglected to brush her. When a city worker came to do some repairs and maintenance on the man's home, he noticed the cat's poor condition and called the The Anti-Cruelty Society, who sent an investigation team to check on the kitty. When the team arrived, they asked the man if he would be willing to give up Sinbad and he agreed. 

At the shelter, vets bathed the cat and gave him two rounds of hair cuts -shedding over five pounds of hair from the cat. After he started to look better, shelter employee Elliot Serrano took Sinbad home over the holidays and ended up falling in love with the recovered and loving kitty. Serrano has since adopted Sinbad and the recovering cat is happy to live in a happy home.

You can keep up with Sinbad's exploits on his Facebook and Instagram.

These Donuts Are Inspired By Gourmet Diner Entrees

We've heard of donuts with bacon, but taking an ordinary restaurant meal and turning it into a donut is a whole new level of dessert. That's exactly what New York donut shop The Doughnut Project (previously featured on Neatorama for its bone marrow donut) is doing with the favorite restaurant dishes of its founders, Troy Neal and Leslie Polizzotto. 

Their new creations include one with grilled Nueske's bacon on a peanut butter glaze with a jalapeño jelly filling, based on this dish from Chef Ryan Bartlow's Quality Eats (top); a kabocha squash filled doughnut with a grilled green grape glaze with a fried caper topping inspired by this dish at Chef Michael Anthony's Gramercy Tavern (above); and a pasta-like donut with tomato jam filling, olive oil glaze and pecorino cheese with a guanciale topping that is a nod to the Bucatini All'Amatriciana at Chef Robert Zwirz's Lupa (below).

Lupa's co-owner, Mario Batali, was so touched by the tribute that he plans on offering a mini version of the donut on the restaurant's dessert menu.

Times That People Destroyed a Priceless Attraction

People are people as the old saying goes and that means sometimes people do stupid things and on rare occassion, those stupid things result in priceless pieces of art, historical artifacts and amazing natural formations being destroyed. This Travel.alot artilce details 10 such tales, ranging from people making totally understandable mistakes to mindblowingly stupid behaviors that make you just hate people. For example:

Goblin Valley State Park is named for its goblins or "hoodoos"—rock formations that look like enormous boulders sitting atop tiny perches. The rock itself is 170 million years old, and it took some 25 million years of erosion to carve the shapes as they appear today. Boy Scout leaders Dave Hall, Glenn Taylor, and Dylan Taylor filmed themselves toppling one over, claiming it was a "safety hazard." The three men were kicked out for violating the Scouts' "Take only pictures, leave only footprints" precepts, and were given a year's worth of probation and fines.

A year's probation? That's nothing for destroying a priceless natural formation!

So check out the full list here.

New Jersey Man Arrested After Owing Over One Million Dollars in Tolls

New Jersey is well known for its toll roads, but while the small fees are normally a minor annoyance to most drivers, one man is actually facing jail time for owing over one million dollars in tolls. Of course, he didn't drive all those miles on his own -Lester Morales owns a trucking company in the state that sends more than 100 trucks through the tolls more than 100 times a day. 

When he was arrested for theft of services, Morales was about to board a flight to Aruba, although his lawyer says he was only going to go on a short vacation and wasn't fleeing the country to escape his bills.

This Poor Sparrow Needed Help, But a Friendly Farmer Was There to Save Him

Idaho resident Nelson Wilson has a heated water tank for his horses that birds like to drink from during the winter. Unfortunately, this little sparrow got his feet wet and then decided to take a break on the metal fence, leaving him stuck with nowhere to go. 

(Video Link)

While the bird was scared of Nelson as he approached, he seems to have accepted that the man was trying to help him by the end. A little warm breath and some patience were ultimately all it took to save the little guy.

The flowers come in two varieties -daisies and roses and they even come in a special romantic pint glass or beer mug.

Secrets of the Louvre Museum

The Louvre is easily the most famous museum in the world, but even a number of people who have visited don't actually know that much about the place itself. Whether you have been there or want to visit in the future, you'll want to check out these fascinating facts about the museum

For example, did you know the original building dates back to the 12th century and that you can still see the remains of the moat inside the museum? Or that many of the pieces on display are only there thanks to plundering on the part of Napoleon Bonaparte? Or that there is now an official Da Vinci Code themed route to explore the museum?

These Squirrels Are Running a Chocolate-Theft Ring

A convenience store in Toronto noticed their were having quite a few chocolate bars going missing. When they figured out who was taking the chocolates, the family who runs the store had quite the charming surprise.

(Video Link)

Over the years a local band of squirrels stole dozens of chocolate bars from the shop. As it turns out, the family itself may be to blame -years ago they started feeding the birds outside the shop and the excess food may have lured the squirrels into the area. Once the free food was gone, the squirrels thought there still must be some free snacks somewhere.

Turn Your Old Fruit Into Wine and Beer With This Nearly-Magical Device

If you buy a lot of fresh fruit, you probably see it go bad here and there. Now you can do better than lemonade out of lemons by making wine or cider out of your old fruit. Supposedly you can even turn the fruit into mead -though obviously that requires more honey than it does fruit. The Alchema device is currently available for pre-order and while it's a pretty penny at $429, that could be a bargain for people who drink a lot of craft brews and end up tossing a lot of fruit. Best of all, you won't be wasting food anymore.

What Kind of a School Lets Kids Do a Scarface Play?

(Video Link)

Those fudging cock-a-roaches! How could they possibly stop a child's dream of playing Scarface? Seriously, this absurdly adorable Scarface reanactment was actually performed as a school play. It's hard to believe until you see the parents applauding at the end. But as to why this was performed at school or who thought this was a good idea, these are the things that will continue to haunt you long after watching this video.

Update: Thank you Uncleblob for pointing out that this wasn't actually a real school play but was actually created by professional director Marc Klasfeld. Even so, the people in the audience are actually the parents of the children on stage, so that sense of paternal pride is certainly real.

Finally You Can Have Your Poop Emoji and Eat it Too

The poop emoji has been a runaway success over the last few years, but for those who wish they could just take a big bite out of it, you can finally get your wish. This crappy dessert was created by Rancho Santa Margarita's The Doughnut Parlor. It's a chocolate cake donut with dark chocolate icing, covered in a spiral of chocolate buttercream and acccessorised with edible candy eyeballs.

While some people might have a hard time biting down on poop, the emoji donut has surprisingly become their biggest seller since it was released.

Season One of SyFy's The Expanse Recapped With Cats

(Video Link)

The Expanse is largely considered one of the most scientifically accurate science fiction shows ever. That being said, the recap version enacted by cats may not be quite as accurate -but it is the most adorable science fiction show ever (or at least a recap of one).

Warning for those who might want to check out the show at someone but haven't yet watched season one: there are quite a few spoilers here.
