Kicking It Old School In Skyrim


(Video Link)

MC Dovahkiin, a.k.a. Big Dragonborn, is so much more G than Lil' Wayne it's ridiculous. Of course, the best MC in this video is by far the shortie dressed as Aela.

Real Cats Pee Like Men

Someone needs to install a urinal into his litter box to make this process even easier for the little guy.

Portal Gas Masks Help You Breathe Easier


DeviantArt user TwoHornsUnited based this cool gas mask design on the gun from the popular game. In case you were wondering, it doesn't actually work, but that certainly doesn't make it any less cool looking.

The Alien Chestburster Red Shirt Cake



I know the chestburster covered in blood is supposed to look horrifically disgusting, but given that it's cake, my mind automatically starts thinking about raspberry syrup and that just makes me hungry.

10 Hilarious Pictures of Animals in Clothing



Sure cats and dogs in costumes are pretty darn funny, but horses and geese? Now that's just plain "redonkeyless." That's why this Oddee article is just so darn fun.

Why Do Paper Cuts Hurt So Much?



We've all had them and wondered, "how the heck can this stupid thing hurt so darn much?" While you probably already know that most paper cuts occur on your finger tips and that they have more nerves than most other areas of your body, you've probably still wondered why a knife cut in the same spot seems to hurt less. Well, Mental Floss can help fill you in:
Well, the blade of even a fairly dull knife tends to be more straight and sharp than the dull and flexible edge of a piece of paper. When a knife cuts your skin, it leaves a relatively clean cut compared to paper, which will flex a little and do more microscopic damage to the skin.

There's more to the story, of course, but you'll have to visit the link to read about all of that.

The Hidden QR Pint Glass



Guinness created this brilliant QR code pint glass in a cool marketing effort. When you scan it, "it tweets about your pint, updates your facebook status, checks you in via 4 square, downloads coupons and promotions, invites your friends to join, and even launches exclusive Guiness content."

Wow, that's a lot of networking right there. What's even cooler is that when there's nothing in the glass, you can't see the code at all. When you add a light beer into the glass, you can't scan the code because the background isn't dark enough. But when you add Guinness (or another beer that dark), you can actually use the code.

Why Dogs Chase Car Bumpers


(Video Link)

Somewhere some sick person is training puppies everywhere that if they chase car bumpers, they'll get a delicious treat. I hope you're happy with yourself you monster.

Just joking, Maymo's owners are very loving and even have their own YouTube channel dedicated to her.

Ariel From The Little Mermaid As The Doctor



If you love Disney princesses and Doctor Who, then you'll definitely dig artist Lar deSouza's take on Ariel as Tom Baker's version of The Doctor. I particularly love seeing Flounder play the role of k-9. Unfortunately, deSouza says he isn't going to be turning it into a series as even the idea of doing all of the Doctors as princesses is exhausting to him. Well, maybe a little Neatorama love will get him to change his mind.

6 Lies Your School Taught You About America's Founding



I know that Cracked has a reputation of exaggerating theories as though they are all truth, but they do try to maintain a nugget of truth. To that end, this article about the founding of America and the many lies we've been taught about it are all pretty fascinating.
 In the decades between Columbus' discovery of America and the Mayflower landing at Plymouth Rock, the most devastating plague in human history raced up the East Coast of America. Just two years before the pilgrims started the tape recorder on New England's written history, the plague wiped out about 96 percent of the Indians in Massachusetts.

If that is true, it certainly explains a lot. In fact, many of their other list items in the article fit in with this idea.

Now That's A Spacy Ring



Not only is this ring gorgeous, it also features a lovely rendition of the planets. Better still, it actually is made from meteorite, gold and gemstones! This would be an ultimate wedding ring for any astronomer.

Don't Knick His Face!



Sure it's a cutting board, but I still couldn't help but feel bad if I cut poor Mario. That being said, it's still a great take on Mario's delightful 8-bit self. Sure $110 is a lot for a cutting board, but I'm sure a lot of work went into hand-making this detailed creation.

Scents That Go With Your Gaming



Etsy seller Bubble & Geek is one of the site's many candle makers. What sets them apart though is that their scents are all inspired by games, movies and other geek influences and bare adorable labels to remind you of the connection.

This Rum Tastes A Little Fishy



Sure the Mon Calamari might not actually come from under the sea, but there's no way you can convince me that something that looks like that and has "Calamari" in its name doesn't smell like fish and if it made rum, I'm certain it would rub off.

The Post-It Note Video Game


(Video Link)

It no doubt took a lot of time and effort to create a stop-motion video game out of nothing but Post-It notes, but the animators at prestigious French engineering school École nationale supérieure des mines de Saint-Étienne proved that their dedication to the project was certainly worth the time investment.

What Do You Mean It Won't Fit?

Poor guy, he just wants to show his new friend where he lives, but either his friend refuses to come inside or his owners refuse to let his friend in. Whatever the reason, it's very frustrating for the little guy.

If Pixar Made The Avengers



Now that Disney owns the rights to Marvel, it only makes sense that they would combine their newest acquisition with an earlier one. If they did, it would almost certainly look very similar to what artist J.M. Walter came up with in this great illustration.

The 5 Worst Animal Mothers Ever



Last week Miss C linked to a story about 9 bad animal mothers, but if you just can't get enough terrible critter parenting, then you might just enjoy this Cracked article with even more wretched mothers. For example, the Tasmanian devil that places its own form of natural selection on its own babies after giving birth to a litter of around 50 pups:
Because there are only four milk spigots, only four pups will survive. Plain and simple. As soon as they're born, there's a race to see who gets one of mommy's feeding nozzles. Whoever makes it there first and can hold on wins.

The rest simply don't survive, but believe it or not, they're only ranked #5 on the list of crummy critter moms.

Well, That's One Solution


(Video Link)

How do you deal with having outside cats when you live in an upstairs apartment? Well, you could teach your cats to just wait outside your lobby for you to get home...or you could train them to grab on tightly to a chair and make a budget kitty elevator. It might not be as practical, but it sure is cooler.

Now This Guy Is A Real Game Master



The best thing about Youtube user 16bitghost's absurdly huge gaming set up is that the 24 console areas still aren't enough for his PS3. Seriously though, how do you even switch between them all on your TV system? I get annoyed just going between the DVD player, cable, Wii and X Box, I can't imagine flipping through all of these options.

The Purrfect Police Officer



Iemon might just be the world's cutest cop. That's because the little kitten was hired more for PR than his detective skills. Even so, he's certainly doing a great job, even if his main duties are laying on the station's front desk. At least this will be one police station short on rats.
