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.
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.
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.

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

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.

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.
Yes we've already featured a few of these cool bentos, but they're so great that it never hurts to revisit them, and the ones we haven't shared are certainly worth a long look.

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.

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.

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.
