Beautiful Pictures Depicting the View From Airplane Windows

Some people hate air travel, which is understandable considering how uncomfortable the process can be these day, but for many, the discomfort is easy enough to overlook in favor of the excitement of travel. If you fall into the later category, you might just love these amazing artworks made by artist Jim Darling.

By showing the view from an airplane window, he perfectly captured the thrill of coming down to land in a new, unknown location. The images are likely to make you long for that feeling you get when you are just about to explore a new destination.

Public Shamings That Ruined People's Lives

Public shaming has presumably been used as a punishment since people realized they could shame one another, but while shaming was once localized and would usually involve a pretty big faux pas, the internet means someone's entire life can be ruined by total strangers over something as minor as a tasteless Tweet.

This great TopTenz list demonstrates ten times people were publicly shamed online in ways that totally damaged their lives. While you could argue that at least most of them should have known better, it's hard to fault the baseball fan who tried to catch a foul ball and then ruined his team's chances of making it to the Series.

Forget Pink Plastic Flamingos, These Lawn Ornaments Are Where It's At

Plastic lawn flamingos are cool and all, but they're a little cliche. If you love the idea of lawn ornaments but want something a little more unique, you might consider heading over to Flamingo Incognito's Etsy shop where you can grab one-of-a-kind, handmade, flamingo-like ornaments.

From dragons to mermaids and from t-rex's to sea monsters, we can't get enough of these crazy, geeky sculptures that are all upcycled from boring, busted old pink flamingos.

I can't help but think that John Waters would love these, even if he wouldn't name a movie after it.

Goats Dressed Like Minions Are The Best Minions

(Video Link)

If you ever poke around the Neatoshop, then you probably already know that we're simply mad about Minions. We've seen Cookie Monster, Sponge Bob and even Baymax cosplay as our favorite yellow followers, but this is the first time we've seen real-life animals donning the daring Minion look -and the result is purely fabulous.

Headed to Comic Con? Then Follow the Yellow Brick Road

We've previously wrote about the fact that some of the coolest things to do during the San Diego Comic Con don't actually involve the convention at all. That's most certainly the case when it comes to the first night after party -The Great Royal Marshmallow.

This outlandish affair will feature burlesque, an art show, a charity auction, live tattooing, live music, a top dj and more. Perhaps best of all, it will be Wizard of Oz themed! If you're heading out to the con, consider stopping by and saying "hello" -I'll be there in person.

The Sushirrito Is A Combination of the World's Best Foods

Sushi is fantastic, but it's awfully hard to eat on the go. On the other hand burritos are marvelous, but they can feel a little heavy. So why not combine the portability of a classic burrito with the fresh offerings of a tasty sushi roll.

Right now Sushirrito is only open in the Bay Area, but I for one can't wait until they are everywhere!

This Mama Bunny Is Willing to Protect Her Baby From Any Danger

(Video Link)

The bond between mother and child isn't just a human trait, but is common in all types of animals. This video shows that rabbits are absolutely in that category -when this mother bunny sees a snake trying to make a meal of her kit, she doesn't resign herself to be short one less baby, but instead hops into action and does what it takes to save her child.

30 Years After the Goonies: Where Are They Now?

It's hard to believe (especially if you grew up in the 80s), but the Goonies is turning 30 this year. In celebration of this monumental occassion, Flavorwire has rounded up a great "where are they now" list featuring the current status of all the main actors in the films.

A fan favorite, Sloth, isn't around any more. In fact, the ex-football player died at only 38 from an accidental overdose. Don't worry though, most of the stories aren't so sad, but actually pretty cool.

Totally Terrifying Prehistoric Sea Monsters

There are a lot of people who are scared of sharks, but if we traveled back 1.5 million years, we'd find a monster that would terrify the biggest, baddest of sharks -the megalodon. And believe it or not, the megalodon is only ranked ten on TopTenz's list of teffifying prehistoric sea monsters.

So what's scarier than a megalodon? How about a dunkleosteus  -a 30 foot long beast with a bite force of 8,000 pounds per square inch, which leaves it tied to with the T Rex and crocodiles  for strongest bit force in history. Even scarier, the creature could open its mouth so quickly that it would vacuum food into its mouth -including prey as large as a human.


Check out the full list of horrific beasts at TopTenz.

Which Game of Thrones Characters From The Pilot Are Still Alive

Whether you're a huge Game of Thrones fan or just know the show by reputation, you almost certainly recognize that George R.R. Martin doesn't have any problem killing off his main characters. Without spoiling anything from the finale of the most recent season, it's safe to say that this reputation for death is well earned.

That's why Flavorwire's round up of all characters featured in the pilot and their current state of existence is pretty darn interesting. While the post is full of spoilers, I can tell you that their final score card shows that only 45% of the characters in the pilot are still alive.

I don't know about you guys, but I can't wait to find out who kicks the bucket in the next season.

The Human Centipede Burger is A Lot More Tasty Than It Sounds

Even before the infamous horror movie was released, "Human Centipede" wasn't exactly a phrase that incited hunger. For those that saw the film though, the name itself stirs up horrifically disgusting imagery, which is why it's surprising that any company would willingly create a food product named after the disgusting franchise. 

That being said, when you order a burger from Zombie Burger, you are already showing your support for the horror genre -and the Human Centipede actually looks pretty tasty. The three-piece slider bun features a different burger in each segment. I never would have thought that I would want to eat a Human Centipede, but I kind of want to now.

Weird Monthly Clubs You Can Join On Etsy

Are you looking for the perfect gift for Father's Day and can't find anything quite right in the NeatoShop? Then perhaps you should head over to Etsy, where there are an array of unique and wonderful "of the month clubs."

Some of the most surprising of these clubs have been featured in a new TopTenz article, which includes not only a sea urchin of the month club, but also a tampon of the month club. There are also a few clubs with hilariously misleading names -like the sushi and Game of Thrones socks clubs, which have nothing to do with either sushi or Game of Thrones.

Professional Actors Reading Pompous LinkedIn Profiles

(Video Link)

Are you an image builder? A freelance strategic opportunity builder? How about a proactive, unbridled desire to shape the future of business?

If so, you probably won't see what's so funny about the content of these utterly self-indulgent LinkedIn profiles being read by professional actors who really sell the cockiness of the words. If you're not a synergistic, value-added paradigm of jargon though, you'll probably love these ridiculous profiles.

10 Totally Amazing Libraries Built in the Last 100 Years

We love libraries here at Neatorama and our most recent Homes and Hues article is a tribute to those places of knowledge. While there are some utterly beautiful libraries that have been around for centuries, the newer ones rarely get the same level of attention. That's why we focused on newer libraries.

You might notice that there aren't any libraries from Asia, Africa and Australia, but rest assured, we fully plan to do more articles that will feature stunning library architecture from those continents as well. 

So if you're eager to take a peek at some of these stunning book depositories, don't miss this great post: 10 Totally Beautiful Modern Libraries

Weird Facts About The World's Most Popular Beers

Chances are you've never heard of the world's most popular beer, let alone tried it. The good news is that you're probably not missing much -while Snow is the most frequently sipped beer in China (and hardly available outside the country), those who have tried it say it's pretty mediocre.

And while many Americans have tried Mexico's most popular beer, Corona, they almost always drink it with a slice of lime -which is unheard of in the drink's homeland.

Horror Movies That Seemed to Actually be Cursed

If you're even a little familiar with film history, you know there are a number of films that people have claimed to have been cursed -the most famous of which is perhaps Poltergiest. While some stories are simply urban legends, other production histories are so frought with accidents you have to wonder if they truly were the subject of a hex. The stories seem even more creepy when they involve horror flicks, which is why this Flavorwire article featuring 10 jinxed scary movies is so darn intriguing.

Cute or Cringe-Worthy: Little Hamsters for Your Cups

Many things seem like a good idea as long as you don't actually put much thought into them. These adorable hamster cup accessories certainly fit into that category. After all, hamsters are simply precious and watching one climb into a cup is cute as all heck -but that doesn't mean you want to drink out of a glass adorned with a rodent. If the deeper concept doesn't bother you and you simply must have the cute, they can be yours for a very reasonable $2.50 each -though shipping from Japan can add up quickly.

Amazing Movies That Were Never Made

(Video Link)

There are tons of movies out there that make you shake your head and wonder "how did they actually green-light something that stupid?" But sadly, there are also tons of movies that should have been made that just weren't. For example, while John Carter was a great movie, but an animated version that would have predated Snow White as the first full-length feature film could have been even more amazing and may have even changed film history.

Learn about nine other awesome movies that should have been made in this TopTenz article, or just watch the video above.

Get Ready for the Crazy Foods of This Fair Season

Fair season is almost upon us and if you're dying to see what's in store to fill your heart with cholesterol and your veins with sugar, then you'll be excited to hear that some of the new food selections at one of our favorite fairs, The San Diego County Fair, have been announced. Among this year's more interesting selections are:

  • Chocolate-Covered Pork Rinds
  • Pig Trough -three pounds of pig skins topped with pulled pork and cheese
  • Wasabi Bacon Bombs –spicy pork with wasabi wrapped in dough and bacon and deep fried
  • 10 feet of Bacon-on-a-Stick
  • Deep-Fried Starbucks -whole Starbucks coffee beans and chocolate chips in sweet pastry dough, wrapped in bacon, deep fried, rolled in sugar and served with whipped cream
  • Deep-Fried Slimfast Bar (presumably for the dieters)
  • Deep-Fried Peanut Butter Pickle – a hollowed out pickle filled with peanut butter and then deep fried.

Personally, I'm looking forward to some chocolate-coverd pork rinds this year. If you live in San Diego, you can stop by and enjoy these treats for yourself between June 5 and July 5, but if you aren't in the area, you can be sure a local fair will be swinging your way sometime this summer carry some of these strangely wonderful treats.

When It's the End of the World As We Know It -You Won't Feel Fine

There are a lot of post-apocalyptic stories out there ranging from zombie attacks (The Walking Dead) to diseases (12 Monkeys). While the end of the world is a fascinating story setting, the reality would be more depressing than practically any of us could remember -that's because nuclear disasters, fire, floods, disease, malnutrition and more would actually leave everyone dead within a short span of time. Survivor stories aren't exactly all that interesting when there aren't any survivors and this TopTenz article explains why there's a good chance that any disaster on this scale would wipe out all humans -not just most of them.
