The beaches of Rio De Janeiro, Brazil are largely considered to be the finest in the world, and when folks head down to Brazil on vacation the trip isn't complete without a beach outing.
With names like Ipanema, Copacabana and Praia Vermelha, the beaches of Rio sound like magical places far removed from the favelas in the city, and those who've been say it all washes away when you're at the beach in Rio.
Canadian photographer Blake W. Smith was on the Rio scene back in 1978, using his trusty Nikon to capture all the bronze bodies, beautiful coastline and local color found on the sunniest beaches in Brazil.
Fans of over-the-top cinema from the 80s and 90s don't stop loving those crazy flicks just because they're all grown up now, they just rewatch their favorite scenes online to relive the glory days.
Many of these iconic scenes came to define the era, serving as a pop culture primer for those sadly deprived of grindhouse culture and midnight movies, but it can be hard to serve up a proper dose of schlock.
So Ben Craw of Smash TV edited together the epic thousand piece movie McNugget meal for your eyeballs that is Megaplex. (NSFW)

I ain't afraid of no giant marshmallow -especially if it's served toasted with cookies and raspberry sauce. This messy-but-lovely "burger" monstrosity is available at Japan's J.S. Burger Cafe and is part of their new Ghostbusters-inspired line of snacks. Other strange treats include a black-bunned burger topped with anchovy and olive paste, black chili chips and a green kiwi smoothie with an appearance that might make Slimer cringe.
Do you bathe on a regular basis? Stop. You don't need to.
James Hamblin, a physician, explains in The Atlantic that it's unnecessary. Your body will naturally regulate its own filth if you would just leave it alone:
The odor of bodies is the product of bacteria that live on our skin and feed off of the oily secretions from the sweat and sebaceous glands at the base of our hair follicles. Applying detergents (soaps) to our skin and hair every day disrupts a sort of balance between skin oils and the bacteria that live on our skin. When you shower aggressively, you obliterate the ecosystems. They repopulate quickly, but the species are out of balance and tend to favor the kinds of microbes that produce odor.
But after a while, the idea goes, your ecosystem reaches a steady state, and you stop smelling bad.
Hamblin put the theory to the test on himself. It worked! His friends tell him that he doesn't stink:
And everything is fine. I wake up and get out the door in minutes. At times when I might’ve smelled bad before, like at the end of a long day or after working out, I just don’t. At least, to my nose. I’ve asked friends to smell me, and they insist that it’s all good. (Though they could be allied in an attempt to ruin me.)
So knock it off with bathing. Live naturally. The people around you will appreciate it.
Controversy is to be expected from shows like Family Guy, Game Of Thrones and South Park, but how could shows like Sesame Street and The Price Is Right possibly cause controversy?
Sesame Streetwas banned in Mississippi in 1970 due to racist attitudes towards the integrated cast of kids, but when an insider leaked the real reason the show was banned the committee had to reverse their decision.
Screen Rant put together 10 TV Shows Banned Due To Crazy Controversy featuring a few common facts (Seinfeld's Puerto Rican Day Parade episode and the Family Guy abortion episode) and reveals why Bob Barker wasn't invited to The Price Is Right's 40th anniversary episode.
The South Korean electronics company LG is selling a television set that drives away mosquitoes with ultrasonic sound waves. It's marketing the TV in India, where mosquitoes are a major public health menace. Each 32" monitor costs about $400 USD. UPI quotes the company:
"The ultrasonic sound waves effectively drives away the mosquitoes keeping your loved ones absolutely safe at home. Since no harmful chemicals are used, it is also odor-free and not hazardous to health like the conventional methods used for keeping mosquito away," the company said on its website.
Wedding photographers try to document a couple's special day without being too disruptive, moving around to capture the scene without getting on everyone's nerves.
Easier said than done for normal sized adults, but this is where a kid's lack of height is actually an advantage, allowing them to slip around virtually unseen while shooting.
9-year-old Regina Wyllie recently shot her first wedding along with her dad Kevin, who has been showing her the ropes for years, and if she were old enough to work she'd now be considered a pro.
Regina shot totally unassisted during the wedding, capturing around 400 photos, but this isn't her first time going pro- because two years ago this photo was chosen over her dad's shots by a camera bag company.
So Regina was a published photographer by age 7 and could be a pro wedding photographer at age 9...this kid's going places!
A swimming hole in an isolated party of Angus, Scotland is popular with local skinny dippers. It's also a hunting ground for red kites who nest nearby. Lately, they've been waiting for the humans to get naked and into the water, then stealing their clothes. The Herald reports that these birds appear to have a special affinity for high fashion branded underpants, which they use as nesting material:
Gamekeeper Dave Clement last year found that a pair of red kites on his estate at Gannochy in Glen Esk near Edzell had stolen pants and socks from a popular local wild swimming spot, to to use in the building of their nest. […]
Dave Clement, member of the Angus Glens Moorland Group, said it appeared that the Kites had become more discerning in 2016, choosing branded undergarments.
“The licences ringer who went up the tree to the nest said there were Armani pants and another brand as well as socks, which they must have pinched off the swimmers at the local gorge.
“It seems they will take anything to line the nest, then lay the eggs on top, and someone must have gone home minus some underwear.
The origin of the doughnut is shrouded in mystery, but it probably began in mid-Nineteenth Century America when a woman named Elizabeth Gregory made pastries, each of which had a single nut in the center.
These were doughnuts and not, I should point out, donuts. The alternate spelling "donut" may have been the work of the restaurant chain Dunkin' Donuts. Kate Taylor of Business Insider summarizes linguistic evidence that suggests that the popularity of the spelling "donut" follows the rise of Dunkin' Donuts as a franchise empire.
After Dunkin' Donuts began in 1950, the use of the alternate spelling of doughnut emerged. It tracks with the spread of the company across America. The spelling has become so common that the Merriam-Webster Dictionary now lists donut has a correct way to spell the word.
Enjoy the soothing motion of a rocking chair, but the horizontality of a bed. This is Private Cloud, a unique piece of furniture designed by Manuel Kloker. It's 7 feet, 8 inches long and 6 feet wide. It costs $7,800 USD, but does not come with a beautiful woman included.
In the off-beat world of the sideshow there are few faces more recognizable than Annie Jones the bearded lady and Jo-Jo the Dog Faced Boy.
Their unique physical characteristics made them superstars in a time when that actually meant something, and their work in the sideshow gave other folks with unusual features hope for the future.
She may not have been the first, but Annie Jones is typically considered the original Bearded Lady because she traveled with P.T. Barnum's exhibition and was photographed so often everyone knew her face.
Annie was with the sideshow for most of her life, but as a child she was kidnapped by a phrenologist who then claimed she was his daughter, until a trial revealed the truth and she was returned to her mother.
Jo-Jo the Dog-Faced Boy was actually Fedor Jeftichew from St. Petersburg, Russia, born with a genetic disorder called hypertrichosis which was passed down from his father.
Fedor became Jo-Jo when he joined Barnum's troupe as a teenager in 1884 but he was no stranger to the circus, since he'd been touring in French circuses with his father for most of his life.
Although his wolfman look added to Barnum's made up backstory that Jo-Jo was a savage child found in a cave, Fedor was actually fluent in three languages and loved to read while not going barking mad for audiences.
You may seen shoes tied together and hanging over steet lamps and poles in urban environments. But never like this! Pejac, a street artist from Spain, left 4 sculptures on London streets that look like hanging shoes, but they face the wrong way. He hopes to inspire child-like leaps of imagination. Street Art News quotes him:
You do not have to be an artist or a child to have a different view of reality. This work is for those who are looking to let their imagination drift away with gravity. Or possibly more for all those who have forgotten to do so.
Jenga is a fun party game. But perhaps you'd like for it to be a bit more exciting. The guys at Vat19 found a great way to do exactly that. They got a set of giant Jenga blocks and set them on fire. Then they played the game.
This was challenging, as the pieces had to be handled quickly. They were, you know, on fire.
It's a thrilling game and the basic principle could be used elsewhere. I'd like to try Twister on fire and Candy Land on fire.
Roberta Mancina is a world record-holding skydiver, BASE jumper, and wingsuit pilot. In her spare time, she also works as a model and stuntwoman. She's pretty much amazing, so this is just another day at the office for her.
For a lark, Mancina decided to strap on a wingsuit and jump out of a helicopter directly over an active volcano in Chile. Villarrica has a lava lake that's clearly visible from the GoPro cameras that Mancina and her colleagues wore on their helmets.
Instructables member Bart Goemaere is a man of genius. In the past, we examined his boomerang axe, which is a throwing axe that returns to you if your miss your target. Now he's back with an essential survival tool: the Bayonax.
Recently, there was heavy flooding where Goemaere lives in northern France. He had to drive home, but a tree had fallen across the road he had to travel on.
Goemaere had only his metalsmithing tools and survival knife with him. He didn't have a saw or axe. But he found a solution: Goemaere wrapped duct tape around his knife and a hammer, giving his knife greater leverage and weight in a swinging motion. 15 minutes later, he had cut up the tree and unblocked the road.
It's surprising how many movies would still be totally watchable, and generally every bit as good, if the genders of the main characters were switched.
Hollywood knows this trick well, and they like to pull it out of their bag when creating a sequel or rebooting a franchise, because it somehow manages to make the story feel fresh again. (Barely NSFW due to language)
There's a reason Japanese roleplaying games are set apart from the rest- it all starts with a character who doesn't talk, typically with spiky hair and extremely fashionable clothing.
Then we encounter some pointless expositional dialogue while running around a town that's all blocked off for some reason before being railroaded to the tragic event cutscene that begins our quest. And then we get to the naming...
This expertly pixelated video from CollegeHumor truly encapsulates all the sameness found in Japanese role-playing games, and for some strange reason it really made me want to play Chrono Cross again...
But as Doge demonstrated, Shiba Inus just don't give a crap, so they'll use their human's laptop to watch videos for hours on end, never bothering to delete the browser history because they think they're the pack leader.
You wake up in the morning. The alarm clock has been buzzing for half an hour, but you still can't summon the will to turn it off, let alone get up.
