Nordstrom Wants to Sell You An $85 Rock

Looking to blow money on something utterly useless? Then head to Nordstroms where you can get your hands on this great $85 rock that at least comes with a classy leather pouch. It's as though the store itself doesn't know why you would buy it, since their description doesn't even know what the purpose of the stupid thing is, "A paperweight? A conversation piece? A work of art? It's up to you."

Just like many absurd Amazon products, the item is being lampooned on the reviews in Nordstrom's shop. Unfortunately, it seems Nordstrom doesn't have as good of a sense of humor because the item has since been pulled and they also seem to have removed all the reviews. While the small rock version was also removed from the store, the reviews are at least still there.

You've Never Seen Disney Babes Like This

Instagram Metalslimer isn't afraid to cosplay male and female characters -only unlike most people who chose to do that, he is anything but androgynous. But that's precisely what makes his female cosplays so memorable -especially those Disney babes.

While his Jessica Rabbit is hilarious, the fact that his Belle cosplay looks like Gaston snuck into her wardrobe and got a little crazy. 

You can check out his other crazy, hilarious cosplays at his Instagram

Even More Amazing Facts That Sound Totally Bogus

Just last month we linked to a Today I Found Out article featuring 10 facts that sound completely unbelievable, but since then, they've posted two more articles with that very same theme -so now you can learn 20 more unbelievable but true facts. For example, did you know the biggest earthquake ever recorded hit 23 on the Richter Scale? Fortunately, no cities were destroyed because this earthquake was recorded by NASA and took place on a star millions of lightyears away.

Also strange, Saudi Arabia imports camels from Australia for food -the local camels there are raised exclusively for racing and domestic purposes. And did you know that the people who voiced Mickey and Minnie Mouse were actually married in real life.

Learn all kinds of fun facts on Today I Found Out in this article and this one.

Watch These Two Dachshunds Play Golf on a Lazy Sunday

(Video Link)

Personally, I can't stand golf -both playing it and watching it. But I could watch Crusoe and Oakley hit the links all day in these dapper outfits. Sadly, they not only look better playing than I do, I think they're better at golf than I am. Then again, I'm pretty sure they're violating some rules of play there by chasing and catching the balls.

This Pooch's Maternity Photos Are the Best

Kennedy Sorensen's dog Chanel recently had puppies and rather than let the memories slip past, Kennedy thought it might be fun to capture the beauty of her preggo pooch before the puppies were delivered. 

Like many expecting mothers, Chanel looks a little embarrassed by her full-figured frame, but she's still beautiful no matter how she feels. And just look at that healthy glow.

As was only fitting, the maternity shoot was then followed up by a photoshoot for the eleven beautiful, bouncing puppies. 

You can see more pictures from the maternity shoot and the puppy photos on Kennedy Sorensen's Facebook

This Beaver Went Christmas Shopping at the 99 Cent Store

Everyone gets so into the Christmas shopping rush this time of year -even critters. This cute little furball was discovered browsing the Christmas aisles of a Dollar General in Maryland on Monday. Unfortunately, he didn't seem to find anything he was looking for, so instead he just messed up some of the shelf displays and left. I guess they just don't sell quality wood at Dollar General. 

He was eventually caught by Animal Control and released back to a wildlife rehabilitation center -though I have to wonder if they would have let him keep shopping at local strip malls if he actually bought some items like a civilized creature.

Harry Potter Fan Theories That Totally Make Sense

One of the great things about the Harry Potter series is that it is detailed enough to be a great story, but still open enough that it allows for an entire world of fan theories, sequels and other additions. Ranker has collected some of the best fan theories in one place and some of them really are mind blowing. For example, are the Dursleys cruel to Harry because he has a horcrux inside of him and Horcruxes do make people inexplicably angry and hateful? Or were Neville's spells backfiring so long because he chose to use his father's wand rather than using a wand that actually chose him?

Check out the full list of theories over at Ranker

I Can't Even Handle This Insane Giant McNugget

What's better than a twenty peice chicken nuggets? How about one jumbo nugget that takes two hands to hold? This video shows two different methods to make your McNugget dream a reality -though one is clearly better than the other.

(Video Link)

Of course, the problem with having a nugget this big is that your dipping sauce options are limited and I doubt most McDonalds will give you twenty sweet and sour sauces to pour into a large bowl for dippping.

You Need This 3D Periodic Table Lamp

The periodic table is a work of art in itself, but putting a generic poster of the elements on your wall is a little uninspired. If you're looking for a particularly attractive way to display the elements, this Instructables creation is far more appealing. 

You can even make your own lamp over by following the instructions, but it's not particularly easy -and you're going to have to spend some serious time and effort to get samples to fill in the jars. In fact, the one in the tutorial only has 20 samples so far.

Check out how to make make your own here.

The Bee Movie Sped Up Every Time Someone Says "Bee"

(Video Link)

The Bee Movie is hardly considered a classic film, but it's still one of those movies that everyone knows about, even if they've never seen it. And even without watching it, you probably know that they say "bee" a thousand times over. This ridiculous clip shows what happens when yo speed up the movie a little bit every time someone says "bee." It's seven minutes of insanity that's a lot more enjoyable than the original 95 minute film.

You've Never Been As Chill As This Husky

Most dogs' natural instincts kick in when they hit the water, even if they're wearing a life jacket, but this husky is just too chill for that.  He may be failing his swim class, but he's winning at life. I mean, why waste energy swimming when you can just float on?

The Disgusting Ways Actors Gained Weight

It's common knowledge that actors often have to gain or lose a few pounds depending on the roles they are cast in. But when they have to gain 30 pounds or more for a role -often in only a handful of months, the weight gain gets seriously intense. In fact, it seems that many of them resort to chugging melted ice cream just to get as many calories in as quickly as possible (though why Jared Leto thought it was neccessary to add olive oil and soy sauce into the mix is a mystery). The worst part is how often it doesn't even pay off. In fact, many actors went through all this suffering only to see their movies fail and be panned by critics and poor Ryan Gosling gained 60 pounds for the movie The Lovely Bones only to get fired since he didn't clear the weight gain with director Peter Jackson beforehand.

What Word Does Your State Most Often Misspell?

Even if you're a reasonably good speller, you probably periodically need a little help and Google is a great place to get it. Since everyone uses a Google search for spelling help now and again, it's not surprising they eventually compiled the data and made a fun chart out of it showing what words each state needs the most help with.

Here in my native California, we apparently need a lot of help with "desert," which is hardly surprising considering everyone is worried about the drought all the time. So what words does your state misspell the most?

You can see the whole graphic on Google's Twitter.

The Burger That Literally Explodes With Cheese

A burger bun pumped full of cheese sounds like heaven, but when you see it launch the cheesy goo in a stream that looks disturbingly pimple-ish way, it may just change your mind. 

(Video Link)

The burger, created by RawMaterialNYC is totally dividing audiences, with some mesmorized with the delicious cheesy filling -and others utterly disgusted with the zit-like visual that happens whenever someone bursts that bun open. What do you guys think? Nasty or nice?

Forget Tardis Dresses, Here's a Stranger Things Dress

(Image Via Cosplay America)

Kitty Cosplay understands that Will is the most iconic character in Stranger Things, so when she decided to do a cosplay based on the Netflix show, she decided to go as Will while he was trapped in the Other Side and communicated with his mother. The decision to throw the Demigorgon's arm through the wall really sells the terrifying side of the show. I have to wonder if she was inspired at all by this previous Stranger Things wall cosplay.

The $50,000 Thanksgiving Dinner

There are those that say you should always "go big or go home" and if you apply that logic to spending money, then you should have been in New York City today for the $50,000 Thanksgiving dinner. Restaurant Old Homestead is always a fancy affair, promising to offer guests "more opulence and decadence than the lobby in Trump Tower" and their Thanksgiving dinner is no exception.

So what does a $50,000 holiday dinner experience consist of? Well, it's not all food. You also get four tickets to an upcoming Giants game worth $10,000, a $5,000 a night room at the Waldorf with room service and breakfast in bed, limo service while in NYC worth up to $2,000 and a $7,500 Fifth Avenue shopping spree and a carriage ride through Central Park.

What about the other $25,000 or so worth of goodies? That's all food, baby. And your meal will feature a 20 pound free-range, organically raised turkey worth $85 a pound seasoned with spices imported from the Middle East and basted with $17 an ounce olive oil; stuffing featuring $465 a pound Waygu beef, $54 a pound foie gras and made from $46 a loaf sourdough from the UK; sweet potatoes topped with $1,600 caviar from the Caspian Sea; green beans prepared with $90 per pound ham; pumpkin ice cream topped with $4,200 a bottle rum-infused eggnog sauce.

Sadly, you know at least half the dinners will probably throw away at least half of their food because leftovers are so gauche.

Italy Now Has a 24 Hour Wine Fountain

(Image Link)

Thirsty and away from home? Don't want to buy a drink? Well, up until now you're stuck drinking out of a boring old water fountain, but if you happen to be in the small town of Caldari di Ortona, Italy, you can always visit the wine fountain instead. That's thanks to the Dora Sarchese Vineyard, who wants the fountain to serve as road side attraction and filling station for thirsty religious pilgrims on the way to Ortona, where the body of the disciple Thomas is said to be kept. Something tells me it will also serve as a destination for wine pilgrims seeking to find something new and wonderful in the world of wine.
