Who doesn't like Nyan Cat? These little ones are certainly fans, after all, they are trying their best to cosplay as the legendary kitty icon and the results are priceless.
Loca and the challenges she faces while running, then you might be happy to see that running isn't her sole means of transportation. In fact, she's actually part of the coolest doggie biker gang around.
Warning: while this is a cute animal video it actually contains a few naughty words and an inappropriate painting, so it's really NSFW.

How you feel about this device will probably vary greatly depending on how you feel about 7-11's other food. For example, if you think chili that slowly drips out of a vending machine is a great addition to your hot dog that's been rolling in public view all day, then you'll probably love these mashed potatoes. If that last sentence made you throw up in your mouth a little, well then, I wouldn't recommend trying these.

Breaking Bad's new season is starting this weekend and if you're as excited about it as I am, then you'll surely love this list off goofy meme pics based around the show.
Remember when you were a youngster and you told yourself that it was ok that just just spent all of your savings on a video game because it was an "investment?" Well, for most of us, that was just a lie, but for one collector, that ended up being the truth -he just made $1.2 million for his gaming collection.
Of course, this was no ordinary collection. In fact, it actually contained every game ever made for every Sega, Nintendo and NEC system -a total of around 7,000 games, all of which came in the box complete with their instruction manual. Some of the games haven't even been opened.
It puts your childhood collection to shame, doesn't it?

Did you know Sherlock Holmes was almost named “Sherringford” Holmes? Or that Gandalf was almost "Bladorthin?"
Bladorthin the Grey? Yeah, not so much. But that seems to have been J.R.R. Tolkien’s original thinking. In pencilled notes on early drafts of The Hobbit, Tolkien noted that “Gandalf” was the name of the chief dwarf and “Bladorthin” was, of course, the great wizard. After the author decided to switch the names around, Bladorthin became the name of a dead king who is mentioned just once in all of Tolkien’s prolific writings.
There's just something wrong about Bladorthin the Grey.
Alex posted a video of a clam "licking" up salt off of a table. As it turns out, the poor clam was actually trying to use its foot (they don't have tongues) to climb back to safety. Here's what it looks like when the creature isn't just seasoning himself for someone's dinner.
Let's face it, YouTube commenter are some of the worst on the net (unlike most of you great Neatorama commenters), that's why Tanner Stokes created Herp Derp YouTube Comments to hide all those idiotic comments by translating them into herp derp speak. If, for some odd reason, you want to read the actual comment, you can click on a comment to see what the person actually wrote.

Fungi are simply amazing in general, but these 10 species are so uniquely fascinating, they're certainly worth reading about. For example, the false morel may look brainy like a morel and taste unbelievable when prepared correctly, but when it's cooked wrong, the results can be deadly.
You'd think every game made these days should offer a female character, especially if it's based on a movie where the main protagonist is a woman. For some reason though, Gear Box's Aliens: Colonial Marines decided not to offer players the chance to fight as a woman.
Does that upset you? Well, you're not the only one. In fact, there's now an online petition with over 3,000 signatures fighting to have a female character added to the game. If you're passionate about the integrity of the Aliens franchise, you'd better head over and sign it.

Zeon and I are at Comic Con this weekend and while we won't have anything to show you until later in the week, I thought you might all appreciate these fantastic hyper-realist paintings by Simon Monk for the time being. There is a whole set featuring all sorts of costumed crusaders locked inside tiny plastic bags. It kind of reminds me of that Simpsons episode featuring "The Collector."

Hungry? Happen to have a cow costume? Well then, you could go get a free meal from Chik-Fill-A. The only condition? You have to dress like a cow. What's your dignity worth?
If you aren't willing to go head-to-toe cow, you can get partial credit if you just wear a little cow fashion and earn a free sandwich.

Even kids jumping off of playground equipment scream Geronimo before they let loose, but have you ever stopped and wondered why people do this? Well, Mental Floss has the story:
In the early 1940s, the United States Army was testing the idea of parachuting from planes as a way of deploying troops. The first group to really experiment with it and begin developing paratrooper techniques was a unit of 50 men known the Parachute Test Platoon.
...When training was done for the day, the troops liked to loosen up and cool down a little. Usually, most of the guys went to the air-conditioned Main Post Theatre in the evenings to see whatever movie was playing. One night in August 1940, that movie happened to be the Paramount western, Geronimo, about the Apache chief.

Looking for a great place to tell ghost stories and enjoy unparalleled views of the night sky? Well, one of these eerie abandoned observatories might just be the perfect place to host your next camping trip -assuming you're up to date on your shots and don't mind getting attacked by ghosts of angry astronomers past.
Sure, it looks like an adorable little amigurumi toy, but we all know that weeping angels come to life the second you stop looking at them. So why on earth would you risk putting one in your own home.
Of course, anything that contains an image of a weeping angel becomes a weeping angel, so I've pretty much condemned all of you to die anyway, so I guess go ahead and order one of the toys -the angels can't get you twice, right?
If obesity is a truly American characteristic, then Slater's 50/50 new 'merica Burger is the perfect tribute to our great country. Only available in the month of July, this burger features a patty made from 100% bacon, thousand island dressing with bacon in it, bacon cheddar cheese and a strip of bacon on top.
I'm simultaneously disgusted and hungry.

Unless you had crazy parents who locked you up inside all day, all of us have enjoyed the freedom and wonder that make playgrounds magical. But it goes without saying that some playgrounds are far more spectacular and imaginative than others. Here are a few of the coolest playgrounds you’re ever likely to enjoy.
Clemyjontri Park, Virginia
Finding a playground designed for handicapped children is hard. It’s even harder if you’re hoping to find one that their abled-bodied friends can use and enjoy at the same time. Enter Clemyjontri Park, a playground specifically designed to provide fun for children of all ages and ability levels. Some of the swings offer higher backs to provide extra support to those who need it. Wide, graceful ramps allow those in wheelchairs full access to the park’s amenities. And in the middle of the two acre park sits a massive carousel.
Belleville Park Playground, France
While this playground may not be as accessible as the Clemyjontri Park, it is still unique in the number of challenges it offers to children of all ages and ability levels. The most famous and most popular attraction in the park is the massive climbing course, which incorporates the ground’s natural slope and offers a variety of inclines for children of all different climbing abilities. For those that prefer more traditional play structures, there is a large jungle gym/playhouse at the top of the hill as well.
Takino Hillside Park, Japan
This amazing Japanese park was designed to help get kids interested in nature again. Of course, many of the play structures are unlike anything else on Earth, but hey, getting kids to use their imagination is never a bad thing either. The main theme for the playground is nests and the most famous (and most gorgeous) attraction in the park is the Rainbow Nest Dome designed by Fumiaki Takano and fabric artist Toshiko Macadam. But there are plenty of other fun play zones at the park, including bouncy hills made from plastic and foam, delightfully odd playhouses designed to look like massive beehives and more. In the winter, the entire face of the park changes when it is converted into “Takino Snow World,” which offers guests fun winter play options like snow shoeing, sledding and skiing.

Whether you spell it out, say it in a foreign language or use symbols to get your point across, there are plenty of ways to tell someone you love them. Of course, unless you're a stalker, you probably won't want to turn to any of these creepy methods seen on Oddee.
