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.

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).

Do you have a stomach that can expand five times its size? Well, if you hope to beat any of these ten epic eating challenges,you'd better. 

Our own Miss C rounded up some of the craziest eating challenges from around the US -like the Dawg House Challenge at Dobb's Dawg House in New York.

Their food challenge includes eating twelve random hot dogs chosen by a roll of the dice. 

So read about the other eating challenges on the list (including the burrito up top) over on Mental Floss.

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.

This little kitty just wanted to play, but her pup buddy was ignoring her -so she found a new fun toy to play with instead. Surprisingly, the dog doesn't seem to mind all that much even though it seems like biting and scratching on the testicles might be a little uncomfortable at the very least.

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?

The Wonderfully Nerdy Shoes of Orion's Originals

These sweet Star Wars shoes might not match, but they go together perfectly. That's because they were designed and assembled by one-of-a-kind Etsy shoe seller Orion's Originals

Netflix Wants to Let You Choose the Ending to Their Shows

Remember how disappointing the ending for The Sopranos was? Well, a new Netflix technology is being released to allow you to change what happens on your favorite TV shows (at least, the ones Netflix makes). The choose-your-own adventure concept could make shows way more rewatchable, but it also could make them not quite as satisfying if all the shows you watch end up the way you want them to. Plus, it will hard to ensure the same quality of acting, directing and writing when everyone involved has to create multiple story lines. And, of course, the concept will make also make it harder to talk about with freinds since what you watched might not be the same as what they watched.

You can read more about the idea and how they plan to implement it over on The Daily Mail.

What do you guys think, is this a winning concept or just another marketing gimmick destined to fail?

This Burger's Bun Is Made From Fried Brie

Some days you want to diet and some days you just want to eat yourself to death. When you want to watch your body's whole world burn, there is the EatFamous Burger from Holy Chuck Bugers. This marvelous monstrosity takes two full wheels of brie, breads and deep fries them and then uses them as buns for an already over-the-top burger that features four burger patties, eight strips of bacon, four slices of aged cheddar and a fried egg on top.

(Video Link)

Of course eating this beast isn't just difficult due to all the calories, but also because those two gooey cheese buns don't exactly make it easy to pick up and chow down. But a mess is a small price to pay for something this ooey-gooey good.

Animals No Longer on the Endangered Species List

If you follow news on endangered species, it can get pretty depressing to see so many animals facing extinction. But not all news about endangered animals is bad news. In fact, on TopTenz, you can read about 10 animals who have been removed from the endangered species list -including the panda that has served as an icon for conservation of endangered species since the WWF chose the bear as their icon in 1961. And while we so often hear about poachers decimating rhino populations in Africa, their cousins in India have also been taken off the endangered species list in the last decade.

There might still be a lot of animals that need our help out there, but articles like this are a reminder that we can make a difference and bring animal populations back from the brink. So see the whole list over at TopTenz.

Polluted Ghost Towns Caused by Environmental Disasters

Conservatives may hate the EPA, but it was created for one very good reason and that is that pollution and environmental disasters can not only destroy the planet, but everyone living on it. This All That is Interesting article shows just how dangerous pollution can be by featuring five different ghost towns that have been destroyed by environmental disasters. For example, Centralia, Pennsylvania, a small town that has been burning since the coal mines below the city caught fire in 1962:

While exact causes of the fire remain disputed, analysts agree that a 1962 fire tore through the town’s abandoned coal mines and has not yet stopped. Residents became aware of the fire decades later, and in 1984 Congress allocated more than $40 million to relocate Centralia residents — many of whom did not see the risk that the fires posed.

Then-governor Bob Casey condemned all Centralia estates in 1992, but backlash from Centralia citizens kept Centralia’s zip code alive until 2002.

So check out the full story of Centralia as well as four other cities destroyed by environmental disasters over on All That is Interesting.

A 1933 Version of New Order's "Blue Monday"

(Video Link)

In celebration of Blue Monday's fifty year anniversary last year, Orkestra Obsolete did a cover of the song using only instruments that were available fifty years before it was released -in 1933. Instruments used include a glass harp, a pump organ, a dulcimer, a zither and a musical saw. The result is surprisingly accurate and entirely unique at the same time.

How to Remove a Stripped Screw

Just about everyone has had to deal with a stripped screw at one point and depending on how bad it's stripped, the process can be pretty simple or infuriating. Fortunately, thanks to Instructables, now you can try five methods to deal with a stripped screw, which should make the process a lot less frustrating. A simple rubber band can help in most cases, but sometimes you need something a little more extreme. I've actually had to use the "cut a notch" method before and while cutting the notch can be a pain, the removal afterward can be worlds easier.

So check out the full list of ideas on Instructables.

A Small List of the Crimes Committed By The Gang in "It's Always Sunny"

(Image via Dana Robinson [Flickr])

It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia is delightful to watch particularly because it's fun to see Charlie, Mac, Dee, Dennis and Frank do horrible things and continue to never grow from their experiences. Any fan of the show knows that while Charlie may know some bird law, the Gang as a whole seems to be completely unaware that they are constantly committing crimes -many of which are serious felonies. 

That's why this list of many (though hardly all) of the crimes on It's Always Sunny is so damn entertaining. It even includes the potential sentences for each of the crimes and unsurprisingly, if the Gang was convicted, they'd be spending a whole lot of time behind bars.

You can see the whole (very long) list here.

Your Perfect Dessert Based on Your Zodiac Sign

We already covered what cocktails you should order based on your zodiac sign, but now you can find out what dessert you should be eating based on your birthday. Tablespoon put together the list of zodiac-based desserts, but while they all look delicious, I can't say that they're totally accurate. I know I (a Scorpio) might enjoy hot fuge icebox cake, but I know my Gemini BF would prefer something with fruit on it or even just a classic cheesecake to a chocolate cheesecake swirl bundt cake. 

So how about you guys, is your recommended dessert a winner or as off as a crummy horoscope?

You Can Spend Your Retirement Wasting Away Again in Margaritaville

Parrotheads everywhere rejoice -Jimmy Buffett's famous Margaritaville restaurant chain will soon have a retirement home equivalent. Unsurprisingly, the senior-housing development will be built in Florida -Daytona Beach, to be specific. 

Known as Latitude Margaritaville, the home's residents will have access to the same amenities as traditional retirement communities, including a gym, pool and recreation programs, but also food from the Margaritaville restaurant chain, a beach shuttle and live music performances which will inevitably include a number of Jimmy Buffett impersonators.

The community’s 6900 homes will have access to a gym, a pool, arts and education programs, a beach shuttle, and a 200,000-square-foot shopping center. Model homes will be available in 2018. 

I think I know where my mom will be spending the rest of her retirement. If you're like her, you can sign up for updates on the official website.
