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.
From Easter Island statues to crashed plane to climbable lighthouses,these playgrounds by Monstrum are some of the coolest I've ever seen. In fact, it kind of makes me want to go to Denmark just so I can go play inside the belly of a whale or climb on the webs dangling under a spider's belly.

Sure, the best thing you can do with an average book is read it, but when it comes to out dated textbooks and the Twilight series, book art is also a good solution. Over on WebUrbanist you can check out 31 fantastic examples of book sculptures that show just how much variety there can be in this fascinating medium.
The Lord of the Rings may quickly discuss how orcs were created, but somehow this makes much more sense. Take one pudgy-faced cat, squish it's head good and bam! You've got an orc.
Yes, this is the most epic Mario-themed bathroom ever created. No, I still don't recommend trying to crawl through any of the pipes in this house to go looking for extra lives and gold coins. All you will find is a terrible smell and tons of bacteria.
Oh, and just joking about the trash can, it just happens to be sitting in a bad part of the room for the theme to work. As it turns out, the rest of the room is decorated with Donkey Kong and Pac Man, you can see more pictures over at the link.

Now that is a pooch that understands how dangerous high stress levels can be. Seriously, I only wish I could fall asleep so easily, but I guess that talent is for the dogs...or at least these 13 adorable sleeping dogs.
Let's be honest, many of us are interested in losing weight, but it just seems so tedious. The trick is to find something that works with your lifestyle so you can maintain your interest. That's why Weighthacker's list of gadgets to help geeks lose weight is so useful for those of us with an interest in technology. From smartphone tools to laptop desks, there are some great ideas on there.
Of course, like any good list of gadgets, many of them are pretty darn expensive, so be prepared to shell out a lot of cash if you actually want to own everything listed there. Personally, if they could just find a way to get David Tennant in his role as The Doctor to travel through space and time with you while you worked out, I'd have 0% body fat by now.
I know we post cosplay photos from the San Diego Comic Con every year, but while it may be the biggest comic book convention, it's far from the only one. A few weeks ago, Boston held their yearly convention and the costumes are utterly delightful as you can see in this great gallery over on Geeks Are Sexy.
If you're a geek who loves both alcohol and gaming, then you'll certainly love Arkeg. The system is pretty sweet as it comes with 69 games, a 5 lb CO2 tank, a 24" hi-def LCD, a sweet sound sound system and, of course, a nice big cabinet to store the keg of your choice. On the other hand, for almost $4000, a few six packs and an X Box could be just as good.
