Looking through Flickr for an article the other day, I randomly came across this odd picture of a fancy-dressed goat who happens to be urinating and I couldn't help but share it with all of you. Enjoy.
Did you know there is a spider whose brains spill into its legs, that some leeches have 32 brains and that the giant squid eats through its brain? Well then, head over to WebEcoist to learn more about the brains of 13 different creatures.
Mmmm...grilled leeks, grilled chicken breast, baked potatoes and boiled creme tarts, who could resist? Kotaku reader S Galinsky sent in this great Skyrim-inspired meal he made at home. It does look like it was pulled right out of the game.
Ok, it's not really that weird, they're actually just cupcakes designed to look like snow cones -making them a perfect summertime treat for the kiddies (and the adults too). For even more fun you could always try making red, white and blue snow cones and playing snack roulette.

At one point or another, we've all fantasized about living on our own isolated island, but while there are plenty uninhabited islands around, you have to wonder why no one has moved in yet. Mental Floss has the scoop on ten uninhabited islands and why no one happens to live on each. For example, Palmyra Atoll can be seen in the picture above:
The U.S. military built an airstrip there during World War II, which has fallen into ruin. The atoll now is administered by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife agency, with the exception of Cooper Island, which is owned by the Nature Conservancy. Palmyra Atoll was the setting for a double murder in 1974 which became the basis for the novel and then miniseries called And the Sea Will Tell.
Maybe it's just me, but I don't think there are nearly enough adorable crafts based on the BBC Sherlock series. For those who feel the same and want to help by creating more amigurumis of Benedict Cumberbatch, you can always make one of these cuties using the pattern at the link courtesy of DeviantArt user Retsnimel.

We've all seen human eyes, but it's rare to look this closely at them -and when you do, it's amazing how weird they actually look, filled with nooks, crannies and a surprising array of vivid colors. See more fantastic close ups of human eyes at the link.
When should you polish off a meal of hot dogs with more hot dogs for dessert? When the later dogs are actually delicious sugar cookies with a quick squeeze of yellow frosting. I know what I'm having this Fourth of July!
The harvest mouse is only two or so inches tall, but it's adapted well to the reeds, wheat fields and other tall vegetation in its homeland thanks to its amazing acrobatic skills. Just look at his amazing prowess.
"The feet are specially adapted for climbing, with the outer of the five toes on each foot being large and more-or-less opposable," writes University of Michigan's Francesca Ivaldi. "This mouse can grip a stem with each hindfoot and its tail, leaving the forepaws free for collecting food. It can also use its tail for balance as it scurries along long grass stems."

Hey geek ladies, if you're like me, you have plenty of geek tees, but finding dresses to reflect your nerdy tees. That's why I, for one, desperately wish someone would make these Avengers dresses a reality. Personally, I would really love to try on the Loki and the Thor dresses. What about you other geek ladies? Which one would you wear?

How do you turn Mountain Dew into a morning beverage? Just add orange juice, of course. While Taco Bell is calling their creation Mountain Dew A.M., I prefer Dewmosa or Dewdriver.
Would you enjoy a Mountain Dew A.M. or do you think it would be disgusting? I don't think it would be too bad.

The best thing about this video is that he not only likes to drink the water sprayed at him, but that he grabs the gun to insist it be shot into his mouth. Crazy kitty.

You’ll notice the game with the most over-the-top stupid and funny mods is Skyrim, and there’s a good reason for that –it’s one of the best selling PC games ever. As if it’s popularity weren’t enough, there’s also the fact that Bethesda encouraged fans to make their own mods, whereas many game companies discourage such actions. In fact, there are so many funny Skyrim mods that I left out a few good ones, like the famous Monocled Mudcrab, so there would be more room for those on other games. That being said, if I left out your favorite, please feel free to vent in the comments.

Yes, it's a fake picture, but darn it...we definitely need to make this real. Maybe if enough blogs cover this awesome picture, Think Geek will step up and add it to their already impressive collection of Star Wars goods. Or maybe Alex can make it real and add it into the Neatoshop.

If you're a fan of Alton Brown, you probably already knew he is a serious nerd. But did you know he happens to be a huge Doctor Who fan? On his Twitter account, he confessed that he's always wanted to play as a Time Lord with an American accent. I don't know about you guys, but I'd be down with Mr. Brown being The Doctor.
A Shooter's sandwich consists of a hollowed out sourdough loaf that has been filled with the meats and cheese of choice and then pressed overnight until it can be sliced like a pie. Serious Eats decided to make their own Shooter's sandwich with 16 In-N-Out burger patties and the result looks heavenly the serious fans of the burger chain -although I wouldn't be content unless mine also had their famous Spread all over it.
