Foods You Have to Try When You Visit Disney World

We've already featured some of the best beverages at Disneyland, but you don't just want to drink while you're at the parks, you're also going to need to eat. Fortunately, Travel and Leisure collected 60 of the most incredible foods at Disney World.

Ok, so technically that leaves you with the best food at Disney World and the best drinks at Disneyland, but until we have a list for each of the parks, this at least keeps it fair for people on both coasts. And there is a little crossover, like the turkey legs, Dole Whips and Mickey Pops. 

Even if you can't make it to the park though, you still might want to check out the list just to check out some of the drool-worthy photos of incredible foods. Heck, I kind of want to go to Orlando now just to eat!

So don't miss the full list over on Travel and Leisure

Daria's Co-Creator and Character Designer Imagine the Characters Today

If you were a youngster in the 90s, there's no doubt that you watched Daria at some point (even if you weren't a fan of the show yourself). While there's no planned reunion episode featuring all the voice actors, Co-Creator Susie Lewis and character designer Karen Disher did envision what the characters would look like if they aged like the rest of us.

Unsurprisingly, Daria and Jane still look pretty hip, Trent looks like kind of a Burnout and Quinn is a miserable housewife. Perhaps the least surprising is Kevin Thompson who largely peaked in high school, though his wife still seems to be doing fine:

“The head cheerleader and quarterback of Lawndale High are married and have three girls and two boys. Brittany is the weathergirl at the local news station and moonlights as part-time cheerleading coach at Lawndale High. Kevin is a stay-at-home dad who dabbles in children’s birthday-party entertainment. While he can’t quite squeeze into his belly-baring uniform anymore, you better believe Brittany’s cheerleading uniform fits her like a glove — and she wears it every Halloween.”

Colorado's 419.99 Mile Marker

Every American driver is familiar with those boring mile markers on the side of the freeway. In Colorado after marijuana was legalized, the mile marker 420 was stolen so frequently though, that the state had to stop replacing it. So they came up with a clever workaround -a mile 419.99 marker. Even so, stoners still make a pilgramage out to the mile marker and here and there people still steal the sign, but with much less frequency than before.

You can see more pictures of mile 419.99 over at Atlas Obscura

The Most Important Craft Beers in America

Beer has always played an important role in human history and over the last fifty years or so, the craft beer revolution has changed the face of brewing as we know it. Food and Wine recently compiled a list of the most important craft beers ever made and the list is fascinating because it's not based on taste or popularity, but only on the brew's role in the history of craft beer. Even if you don't actually drink, it's still an interesting look at how brewing has changed over the years.

So check out the full list at Food and Wine

Some of the Best Animal Videos of All Time

There are hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of animal videos on the internet and practically all of them are squee-inducing. That's why it's so darn hard to pick the "best" of all of those videos. Over on The Daily Dot though, one writer was foolish or brave enough to do just that. He ranked 37 of what he says are the definitive best animal videos on the entire net. The list is pretty good actually, but there are some notable omissions -perhaps most notably in my opinion, Hamster on a Piano Eating Popcorn.

(Video Link)

I'm sure plenty of you will take issue with some noticably lacking videos that aren't the list either. But even so, there still is a lot to love about this impressive list of incredible animal videos

This Burger Has Pizza for a Bun

We've seen burgers built inside of pizzas and burgers with pizza toppings, but at Los Angeles' new Meathead restaurant, you can instead get a burger with an actual pizza as the bun. While the burger in the picture has all kinds of fancy toppings on it like kimchi and bulgogi, you can get a pizza bun on just about any burger they serve, including more classic meat, cheese and pickle varieties or on monster ones topped with bacon and onion rings.

Every Ride in Disney's Magic Kingdom Ranked

Disney World is so huge it's impossible to ride all the rides in just one day (and that's only one of Disney's many parks in Orlando). If you want to plot out your best possible day at the park and don't already know which rides you like, you're in luck. Travel and Leisure ranked all the rides in Disney World for your convenience. Of course, like all ranked lists, I'm sure many people will disagree with their decisions. For example, while I've only been on the California equivalent of the rides, I just can't get behind the idea that Toy Story Mania! is anywhere near as good as Pirates of the Caribbean or The Haunted Mansion while they have it ranked as #5 compared to those two, which are #12 and #8, respectively.

So check out the full list of all 53 rides here.

Bacon Wrapped Fried Pop Tarts

Pop Tarts are a great snack, but there's no denying that they're just missing something to make them the perfect snack. Fortunately, Oh Bite It figured out exactly what they needed -bacon, deep frying and gooey, fresh frosting. 

The recipe is pretty simple -just wrap your Pop Tart in bacon, deep fry it and then add frosting and sprinkles. Check out the full details on their page.

Wearing Socks Changed This Pug's Life

Leia is a cute little 14 year-old pug, but like many senior citizens, she can't get around as easily as she used to. Unfortunately, her humans didn't realize that would be a problem when they tore out their old carpet and replaced it with hardwood flooring. 

Poor little Leia was slipping and wobbling around the house and she lost her confidence to get around. Her parents knew they had to do something, so they tried giving the little pug socks -and things totally turned around for her. 

While most dogs hate wearing socks, Leia took to them immediately. "She will stand on the living room rug and bark for me or cry, trying to get around if the socks aren't on," said owner Geroni-Lajoie.

You can see more pictures of Leia over at The Dodo.

20 Castles You Can Rent to Live Out Your Beauty and the Beast Fantasies

Thanks to sites like Airbnb and HomeAway, it's never been easier to rent a whole home rather than just a hotel room. And while most houses are just that, some people have much more grand properties available for rent -including whole castles. And HomeAway recently took the time to compile a fantastic list of 20 castles available for rent on the site. One of the castles is even less than $60 a night! Even many of the more expensive properties are still about the same price as many luxury hotels, like the beautiful French castle featured above that costs an average of $344 a night.

Don't miss the full list of romantic castles you can rent here.

Every Netflix Original Ranked

There's no denying that Netflix has had some pretty amazing original shows ranging from political dramas like House of Cards to absurd cartoons like Bojack Horseman. While everyone has their own personal tastes, it's always fun to rank things and that's what Collider did with this great list of every Netflix original series to date. Personally, I have to disagree with where they put Orange Is the New Black, which really dropped off over the last few seasons, but that's one of the best things about lists -the ability to disagree with them.

So check out the full list on Collider and feel free to debate their rankings in the comments here.

Comedian Ken Jeong Answers Important Medical Questions

(Video Link)

Ken Jeong is best known for his roles in The Hangover and Dr. Ken, but before he was famous, he was actually just a regular old doctor (although undoubtedly a funnier-than-average one). While he may not be a practicing M.D. these days, he still retains his medical knowledge and in this hilarious video, he answers burning medical questions on Twitter in entirely satisfying ways.

This Artist is the Fuzziest and Cuddliest Painter Around

Kenny Au knew that his husky was destined for greatness if he just knew how to acheive it -so he and his wife trained Hunter to paint. Well, to be more accurate, they trained their dog to paint after the super smart pup learned everything else it seemed possible to know.

They taught him how to make a simple head movement with a brush in his mouth and the rest, as they say, is history. Now little Hunter loves to paint and even looks at his owners with a longing look in his eyes when he wants to make a little art. 

According to Kenny, having a job like painting keeps Hunter calm -presumably stopping him from going on a destructive rampage like the dog with the caligraphy ink we featured earlier this week.

Hunter's art is now for sale on Etsy for $38.72 a pop and they can even be signed with a paw print stamp (since he doesn't like getting dirty even to sign his own creations). 

You can read more about Hunter on the Huffington Post or see more of his pictures on Instagram.

This Map Shows How Much Your State Loves Weed

Does your state love marijuana or think it's the devil's weed? Estately compiled a number of stats to figure out which states love the ganja the most. They took into account how many marijuana smokers there are per capita, how much interest the people express in marijuana, how often the locals search for information about weed on Google, and more. Unsurprisingly, Colorado came in first, followed by Washington and Oregon, but you might be surprised to know where the rest of the states rank -especially which states are at the bottom.

You can read more about how the data was compiled over at Estately.

Three Companies That Offer Paid Time Off for New Puppy Owners

(Brown Puppy With Bone tee available on NeatoShop)

Adopting a new puppy is a wonderful, nightmarish experience, but it can be a lot more positive if you don't have to go to work every day and leave your pooch either outside, in a crate or with someone else. Just like a new baby, dogs need time to bond with their parents and that's why it pays to have a job that offers paid time off when you adopt a pup -and these three companies featured on Travel and Leisure offer just that (and a few even offer pet bereavement leave).

Visiting The Anza Borrego Super Bloom

California has record rainfall this year and as a result, the desert is full of flowers and the Anza Borrego Desert outside of San Diego even had more flowers than it had since 2005 -what's known as a super bloom.

Even the second you get out of your car you're hit with flowers everywhere.

They seem to grow in every color -pinks, reds, purples, greens, yellows, blues, whites and more!

And it was amazing how many flowers were growing on some of the plants.

Amazing and Surreal Pictures Taken by a Drone

Photographer Aydın Büyüktaş traveled the Western states of Texas, Arizona, New Mexico, Nevada and California. He then used two drones to take pictures and compiled multiple images to create a 3D creation with drafting software.

The artist doesn't say how many images it takes to create each final rendering in Photoshop, but one thing's for sure -the end result is amazing.

The Most Educated Place in Each State

Business Insider compiled this cool map that uses census data to determine the most educated place in each state. Their calculations are based on the percentage of adults over 25 with a bachelor's or higher degree.

Mental Floss readers noted some interesting details about the map, like the how many of the cities are on state borders and also how the cities seem to correlate with the most high-income parts of the states as well.

It's also interesting to see how drastically the numbers vary across the country. In North Dakota, for example, Fargo is the most educated city with 39% of adults having earned a bachelor's degree, whereas Lareda, California leads the country with an impressive 89.5%.

You can see a full-sized version of the map on Business Insider.

Tokyo's Newest Style of Cafe Offers a Nice Place to Nap

Fascinating Facts About the Pharaohs of Egypt

You probably know that the pharaohs were powerful rulers of Egypt, but you may be surprised by what you don't know about them. For example, did you know there was a pharaoh who let his army lose in battle only so he could protect the lives of cats, that were considered sacred? Or that the female pharaoh Hapshetsut asked to be depicted as a man by all artists in order that naysayers wouldn't criticize her ability to rule based on her gender?

Utterly Stupid Restaurant Customers

We've all seen stupid people in restaurants before, but few can compare to those in Thrillist's most recent list of bad restaurant customers. From the woman who ordered steak tartare well done to the customer who ordered pizza delivery to the hotel across the street from the one she was actually staying at, these patrons might just make you feel embarrased for humanity.

Man Working From Home Names His Dog "Employee of the Quarter" Every Quarter

Working from home can be lonely -sometimes all we have to keep us motivated, entertained and cheerful is our pets who have no idea we're even working. That's why telecommuting Accuride employee Michael Reeg decided that his dog Meeka should be named "Employee of the Quarter" every quarters. He even gave her furry friend an appropriate plaque to celebrate the occassion.

Michael claims Meeka really earned her title:

“I try out my sales pitches and presentations on her. She’s not easily impressed or swayed. All she hears is ‘blah, blah, blah, Meeka’—but she likes to hear my voice and I love that she pays attention.

Now You Can Enjoy Butterbeer Ice Cream at Home

Harry Potter fans everywhere know that butterbeer is the go-to drink for witches and wizards and while you can buy a real-life version of it at the Wizarding Worlds in Universal Studios parks, most people can't get their fix at a theme park on a regular basis. If you're longing for that sweet buttery greatness and don't want to head to Orlando or Hollywood though, you're in luck -Yuengling's Ice Cream is now introducing a new butterbeer ice cream available at retailers through the country. The flavor consists of buttercream ice cream with a butterscotch swirl.

The Trocks: The Drag Ballet

Ballet was once largely a male pastime as it requires a lot of strength, but over time it has become largely associated solely with women. But Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo prove that anything women can do men can do just as well only with a comedic twist.

Each member of the drag ballet troop plays both a woman character and a male one. The athleticism is pretty intense -moves designed for female dancers can be particularly hard for heavier male bodies. That also results in the occassionall misstep, but fortunately for the Trocks, the routine (like most drag performances) already has comedy built in, so mistakes just add to the entertainment value.

You can read more about the drag ballet troop over on DCist.
