The Unbelievable Balloon Animals of Masayoshi Matsumoto

We're all familiar with your run-of-the-mill dog and giraffe balloon animals, but artist Masayoshi Matsumoto takes balloon tying into a whole new realm of artistry. Each of his intricate animals takes hours to complete and the end result shows that level of detail is absolutely worth it.


Amazingly, this is just Matsumoto's hobby as his real job involves chemical engineering. Right now he doesn't even sell any of his works, he just shares them on his Facebook and Twitter pages for free. It's amazing to think what he will do next and if one day he might consider doing this full time.

Pay Like A Wizard With This Almost-Magic Wand

Samsung Pay seems like magic to some extent -seeing as how you can use it almost anywhere with a wave of your phone. But there's something distinctively "meh" about using your phone to pay -especially when you could be using a magic wand instead. 

The Ollivander19 is a brilliant invention that claims to be (and probably is) the first contactless payment wand. And because magic can't be bought, but only inherited, the only way to get one of the eight wands in existence is to win one on the Card Cutters website. So if you think you've got what it takes to do magic, head to the site and try your luck today.

Batman the Cat is the Pet The Internet Deserves -And the One It Needs

Batman was born with four ears -two in front and two in back. He was recently brought into the Western PA Humane Society and his unique looks ensured he was adopted only a few hours after that. Adorably, his new owner is a little girl obsessed with superheroes -fitting not only due to his name, but also because he is a mutant so he could potentialy become the next member of the X-Men. He'll be a super family member, that's for sure.

These Stranger Things Cupcakes Are the Next Best Thing to Chocolate Pudding

Every now and again, a show comes out totally under the radar and then leaves everyone talking for weeks. Last year it was Making A Murderer and right now it's Stranger Things. Redditor youdevildog made cupcakes based on the series and the decorations and flavors are all too perfect for each character. I'm sure fans can recognize the references of Christmas lights and Eggo waffles, but you can see how all the others fit in as well on the Reddit page.

If Seinfeld Had a 9/11 Episode, It Would Read Like This

Image via Steve Harris [Flickr]

Seinfeld is easily one of the most famous shows in history and amost certainly the most famous one set in New York. So if the show was still on the air when the Twin Towers fell, they'd kind of have to write a 9/11 episode or at least referrence the terrible tragedy. But how could they possibly do that on a comedy show without making light of the devestating events themselves? This spec script by comedian Billy Domineau captures the tone perfectly -making light of George's ego, Jerry's OCD, Elaine's relationships and Kramer's well, Kramerness. Sure, it's still a bit tasteless, but it's also damn funny and any fan of Seinfeld will quickly recognize how much it actually reads like a real episode. You can read the script below or click here to see it full size:

The Most Intense Resident Evil Cosplay Ever

Resident Evil's monsters are some of the most haunting creations in any media, let alone in video games. Part of what makes them so horrifying is that you often actually see a regular person transitioning into the gargantuan creature -and that's exactly why this amazing cosplay is so incredible and terrifying. 

Amazingly, the entire torso is fabricated -including the head. Also amazingly, this isn't cosplayer Gai's first nightmarish Resident Evil cosplay. He previously created a Stage 2 version of this same character (this one is Stage 1).

Duchess Managed to Turn a Broken Jaw Into an Epic Smile

Duchess was a stray cat that was hit by a car in Texas and brought into the Adobe Animal Hospital. Her broken jaw and status as a stray would have been enough to make most shelters put her down, but this compassionate clinic decided to do surgery despite her slim chances of survival.

And their kindness paid off -Duchess survived and is doing better day by day. She even got a new owner -clinic worker Crystal Tate. 

Duchess might have a crooked jaw and have lost some of her teeth for the surgery, but she has an unforgettable smile and a loving home so her future's looking pretty good now.

Cool Art Made From Business Cards

At one point or another anyone working in a professional environment will end up with business cards -and most of us end up with way more of them then we could ever actually hope to use. So what do you do with all those unused cards? Well, you could send them to Petrina Case and ask for a sculpture to be made from your work history.

The talented artist will then make you a sculpture based on your field of expertise built entirely from your business cards and some adhesive. You can even choose an existing sculpture or reach out to her for a cusstom model.

The Stupidest Internet Trends of All Time

There are a lot of stupid trends that take off online these days, so it takes a lot to actually be one of the top ten stupidest ones featured here. A great example is the duck tape challenge, which involves wrapping someone with duct tape and filming them try to escape. It sounds stupid and painful, but it also ended up being surprisingly dangerous when one kid hit his head on a window ledge while trying to escape and suffered traumatic brain damage and went blind in one eye. Not all of the selections are dangerous -some are just idiotic marketing ideas that actually worked, but in one way or another, these internet trends remind us that we live in a planet of dumbasses.

Fun Facts You Don't Know About Stand By Me

Stand By Me is one of those classic movies adults and (slightly older) kids can enjoy watching over and over. But what do you really know about the film? However much you think you know, I'm willing to bet you weren't hip to many of the fun facts in this fun Zimbio article. For example, did you know it's Stephen King's favorite adaptation of any of his works? Or that King actually had a friend of his get hit by a train when he was a kid? It's a fun read that will make you enjoy the film even more.

If Donald Trump Was 30 Rock's Jenna Maroney

I know. Every time we mention Donald Trump we anger his fans who seem to think there is nothing funny at all about a former reality TV star running for president. The fact is, we're not trying to be political. We just share things that we think are funny -and seeing Donal Trump partnered up with quotes from 30 Rocks' character Jenna Maroney is just plain funny.

Or at least, I think it's funny. And if you agree, you can find more on the Donald Maroney Tumblr.

The Strangest Food and Drink Conspiracy Theories Ever

It should go without saying that Tim Horton doesn't add nicotine to their coffee to get you addicted or that the government isn't adding fluoride to your water to control your mind. Of course, that doesn't mean people don't believe these things. 

Strangely though, some consiparcy theories are surprisingly accurate -for example, the popularity of fondue in the seventies was all a result of brilliant marketing from the Swiss Cheese Union. It sounds absurd, but it's actually well documented.

You can read up on more of these odd theories over on Thrillist

The Hilarious Pet Contract One Dad Put Together for His Kids

Kids love pets, but parents aren't always on board -especially if they think they'll get stuck having to take care of the animal. That's why many families write up pet contracts to help make the children understand all the responsibilities associated with owning a dog or cat. The thing is though, usually they aren't as damn hilarious as this contract. I just hope they don't actually surgically remove its paws.

All the Ways the Internet of Things Could Kill You

We're been making a whole lot of products "smart" over the last year or two and while it might seem to make your life easier to have everything hooked up to the internet and connected via Bluetooth, it's only a matter of time before the machine revolution begins. Don't believe me? Just look at all the simple and evil ways your mad machines can start killing you -even your Bluetooth tampons and smart water cups.

Where Can You Go Topless in America

America is a land with many contradictory laws and many states and localities outlawing things that are otherwise legal in the country. One surprisingly complex area of law involves where a woman can or cannot go topless. Fusion took a look at each state's laws to suss out where you can or can't legally bear the breast and the answer is a lot more complex than you might imagine -and that's without adding in the complexities of county or city laws. The image above gives a basic understanding of their discovery, but you don't want to miss the accompanying article discussing how and why these laws get passed.

Star Trek: Into Barkness

(Video Link)

We know that cosplay can make humans happy and even bring them together, but can it do the same for pets? You wouldn't think that could possibly work unless you watch this adorable Paws Play video where a Star Trek cosplay helped this kitty and doggy mend their differences. They may not be as close as Spock and Kirk, but they're building a friendship that could be that tight one day -no matter how illogical it sounds.

Amazing Geek Tattoos Spotted At the 2016 San Diego Comic Con

Geeky people with tattoos tend to have geeky tattoos, so it's no wonder that you can find some amazing geek tattoos at the San Diego Comic Con. Here are a few of the best and coolest tattoos we spotted at the convention.

The Sexiest Witch King In Town

Even the most dedicated Lord of the Rings fan has probably never seen the Witch-King of Angmar like this. You know what they say -if you've got it, flaunt it.

Don't Mess With These Ladies

Some girls like princesses that follow all the rules, like Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty, but others like girls who defy authority.

That's why she had the princesses Daenerys, Merida and Mulan tattooed on her sleeve.

Of course, strong female role models don't end with princesses. These Gotham City femme fatales also belonged to the same woman, Ms. Melissa Romero. All of her work was completed by Steve Rieck, a Las Vegas artist who has a particular interest in doing geeky tattoos.

There Couldn't Be a More Fitting Place

50+ Fantastic Cosplay Photos From the 2016 San Diego Comic Con

Last week, Zeon Santos and I experienced the delightful, chaotic mobbing of geekery known as San Diego Comic Con. As always, some people went all out creating amazing costumes to celebrate their favorite movies, tv shows, comic books and video games, so as always, we took tons of pictures of those cosplays to share with you here at Neatorama. So here goes:

My personal favorite costumes this year were this Alien and his little brother, the Predator. These two couldn't have been more than 8 and 6, respectively, and the crowd loved them.

This incredible Xiall from Court of the Dead makeup was put together by Cig Neutron, a former Face Off contestant, and his talented model and partner, Rannie Rodil.

If you love costumes featuring stupid puns though, then perhaps you'd enjoy this group of "Slashers."

I got to see a real life barbarian this year, so that was pretty cool.

When it comes to beautifully detailed costumes, it's hard to beat this lion portrayed by Jo Skellington who even had sratches and scars carved into the fur on his body. Anyone know where he's from?

What is Your Pet's Ice Age Ancestry?

We all wonder what our pet's non-domestic ancestors would look like, but what if you go a little bit further back -to the Ice Age, for example? Thanks to the famous film franchise, now you can actually help visualize what your fur baby would look like in the distant past (and learn which Ice Age character they most closely resemble. 

I went ahead and did my two pups on the site and as you can see, the results are pretty insightful as well as delightful. So check out your pet's pre-historic roots at AnimalAncestry.com.

Hungry for some great style? Then don't miss this chic pizza necklace for sale on Etsy. It's the perfect way to say "I put my heart in pizza."

This Baby's Harry Potter Photo Shoot Was Magical

It's hard to do a great photo shoot with a baby becacuse they will inevitably start crying or have an accident. That's why this Harry Potter photo shoot is so brilliant -its actually better if the baby cries. After all, have you ever seen a smiling mandrake? Of course, it doesn't hurt if the baby's big brother is there to look annoyed at having to wear ear muffs just to transplant a bothersome screaming plant.

You Might Be Happy to Get Pooped on By a Seagull This Summer

Or at least you might be happy to be pooped on by a seagull drone this summer because if you are it means that you just got sunscreened. The concept is a strange marketing move by Nivea, who intends to send these beauties out to beaches where they will target children not sporting sunscreen (a UV camera can tell which children aren't coated in it) so maybe there is something to the old idea that having a bird poop on you is good luck.

We're In Love With This Mustachioed Kitty Who Witnessed A Murder

Kyle is just your every day adorable, grumpy-looking mustchioed kitty with a few minor distinctions -for example, he witnessed a domestic violence murder and was even held in evidence by the police before being handed over to the local animal shelter.

Of course, like many other famous internet kitties, he has a few health issues that seem to make him even more adorable -he has only three teeth, a permanently crooked ear that is dirty all the time and causes his foot to get dirty from scratching it. He also has absurdly scraggly whiskers that seem to go in all directions all at once. 

And did I mention he looks fantastic in a hat?

The Restaurant Built in a Waterfall

Chances are you never looked at a waterfall and thought "that's a place I wanna eat," but after looking at a few photos of the Labassin Waterfall Restaurant in the Philipines you might start feeling that way. This stunning restaurant lets dinners sit at the base of a waterfall and feel the water flow over their feet as they eat. You can even head over to the flow and let it run over you between bites.

Seinfeld Recreated in Doom

Seinfeld is one of those beloved shows that even 20 years later, fans just won't just let it die. That being said, at least one fan of both Doom and Seinfeld found a way to make it die. Doomworld forum user Doug Keener wanted to combine two things he loves to make the ultimate Doom tribute to the show about nothing.

(Video Link)

Ultimately, the mod is really about nothing too -other than shooting all the characters from the show and listening to a few of their most famous lines before you plug them. If you're wondering why a fan of the show would want to shoot everyone on it, well, that's because it's also a tribute to Doom and you can't play the game without spilling some blood.
