Cosplayer Fangirl Physics made this Captain America costume, which is made entirely of assembled knitted pieces. She doesn't carry the Captain's shield, but she has a pair of knitting needles in her bag to fight freedom's foes.
I would love to see a complete assembly of the Avengers in knitted costumes.
Some people shoot for the moon, meaning they decide to blow up the moon and become the greatest super villain in the world, but for some there's nothing better than the life of a henchman. Aside from the occasional atomic accident or beheading by Brock Samson the life of a henchman is a pretty cushy one, and you get to wear a fun costume to work every day! But before you decide to go hench heed this warning- those bros Hank and Dean are not what they seem...
Declare your allegiance to geekdom with this Hench 4 Life t-shirt by Kgullholmen, I venture it'll make your fellow fans grin with delight!
Spoon & Tamago reports that data scientists at the West Japan Railway Company analyzed 2 years worth of information of a recurring problem: drunk people at train stations walking right off the platform and onto the train tracks.
They anticipated that the drunks just wandered aimlessly onto the tracks accidentally. But security camera footage revealed that they tended to stand up from seats and walk straight off the platform like they knew exactly where they were going.
So the train company is experimenting with a possible solution. Assuming that drunks will move in more or less a straight line after standing up, they turned seats perpendicular to the train tracks. They will see if this results in fewer drunks on the tracks in the future.
Movies sometimes show characters watching other movies--often completely fake. Some of these are clearly worthy of becoming feature films themselves, as illustrated by this supercut made by Screen Junkies. The editors show the best movies-in-movies from South Park: Bigger Longer & Uncut, Scary Movie, Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back, Boogie Nights, The Big Lebowski, For Your Consideration, Matinee, Singin' in the Rain, Inglourious Basterds, Home Alone, The Last Action Hero, Grindhouse, UHF, Tropic Thunder, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, The Simpsons Movie, Funny People, and Scrooged.
Jake uncovered a portable gaming unit one day while digging around in a particularly stinky cheese sinkhole, and since he'd always wanted a little BMO of his own he decided to take it home and see if it still worked. He took his time and cleaned it up then popped in a few batteries, and the LMO unit sprang to life. At first Finn and Jake thought little LMO might be a good addition to their adventure family, but after hearing the ABC song for the thousandth time they realized bringing him home had been a huge mistake. And then they discovered that LMO had been built without a power switch...
Bring some annoyingly cute animated color to your geeky wardrobe with this LMO t-shirt by Minilla, it's sure to tickle your fellow cartoon fans!
Tony Booth of Dabs Tattoo in Southport, Merseyside, UK put an impressively three-dimensional tattoo on this man's arm. Even as the camera pans over his arm, showing the tattoo from multiple angles, it still appears to be more than a flat surface. The hex pattern creates the impression that he's a holographic simulation under construction. Hex by hex, he is slowly forming before our eyes.
The Dude may live in a complicated world, and he may be surrounded by all kinds of things that would ordinarily complicate life, but he's about as simple as they come. Now that don't mean he's a dummy, no sir, that's about the opposite of what he is. Lebowski can't be explained with words, he can't be figured out that easy, and that's why he's just the guy to teach us all how to take it easy. That fella's tellin' us all to simplify, and I reckon that ain't such a bad idea after all...
Keep your wardrobe Lebowski approved with this The Dude Abides t-shirt by Spike00, it's the chillest way to show your love of the coolest movie ever made!
Occasionally a television show will be canceled and there will be a backlash against the network powers that be from angry fans defending its quality and demanding that it return to the air. Alternately, a seriously awful show might be canceled almost immediately, with little or no resistance. The latter scenario is the case with these fifteen shows, one of which is an unfortunate A&E reality show about "The Hoff" himself. Revolving around David Hasselhoff's day-to-day life and attempts to revive his post-Baywatch career and get his two daughters into the biz, the misguided idea turned production bombed as soon as it aired. The cable channel abruptly put it out of its misery.

Marty's life was starting to feel like a waking dream, and the years he'd spent traveling through time were starting to mess with his head...and his eyesight. He began to see the world as a perfectly pixelated place, and people as a bunch of squares walking around trying to keep it together. Marty walked the streets in a daze, most definitely not feeling McFly, and then he ran into himself outside the 80s themed diner...
Head back to the low resolution future with this Pixel Paradox t-shirt by Hopography, it's totally classic!
UK-based cartoonist Dennis Davies turns Peanuts characters from sweet to psychotic in his series Run for Your Life, Charlie Brown. Watch as Charlie and the gang are transformed into baddies like Hannibal Lecter and Freddy Krueger. Check out more of Davies' artwork here.
This Frenchie from Eureka, California is obviously not a fan of being left alone in the car. He's bored and wants his human to get a move on. Thus, as he can't hotwire and reach to put the pedal to the metal, he put his paw on the horn. Leave this cutie in the car for too long and he'll lay on the horn for just as long. Eye for an eye, paw for a paw. -Via Laughing Squid
Jihyun Park, an artist from South Korea, has a novel approach to pointillism. He burns holes in rice paper with lit incense sticks. When backlit, his works display amazingly rich images of clouds, landscapes, and trees. Park explains:
After reading the books Gulliver’s Travels, Utopia, and Erewhon and seeing the Japanese animated movie Castle in the Sky, I became inspired to develop a relationship between the concept of utopia and the materials that I use in my work. My recent work, Incense Series, focuses on this relationship while searching for the promised harmonic balance that utopia brings.
The Ämari Air Base in Estonia was once a busy hub of the Soviet Air Force. There’s a cemetery in a forested area of the base. Eric Grundhauser of Atlas Obscura reports that during the Soviet occupation of Estonia, some pilots were buried beneath the vertical stabilizer fins of their aircraft. Grundhauser writes that “the effect almost looks as though a squadron of the ships are burrowing through the ground with their fins above the surface like sharks.”
It’s always been like this. Ronald upheld the honor of the family while the Joker tore it down. Even when they were kids, it fell upon Ronald to clean up his little brother’s messes. Eventually, he stopped doing it for his brother. Only love and respect for his mother would keep him going. But even that motivation will fade in time.
You need another living creature to fill the hole in your life or relationship. Should it be a dog or a child? Rob Fee of Mandatory runs through the differences in the two experiences. You could also get both. Eventually the child will be able to walk the dog. But for some reason, people will flip if you appoint the dog as babysitter.
The time for sneaking and hiding in the shadows is over, now it's time for humans, dwarves and halflings to stand together and prepare for kombat! There's a smog cloud staining the air, and a mighty rumble can be heard from deep inside Lonely Mountain, signaling the mighty dragon's will soon return. Will you become just another mortal fatality, or will you face the dragon and help FINISH HIM?!

We all know that Japanese artists and designers create some of the strangest stuff on the planet, and that their creative efforts make the world a much more colorful place to live. Their whimsical and eyecatching designs seem to shine brightest when they're brought to life in toy form, and then we not only get to look at their wacky designs- we get to play with them!
Here are ten weird and wonderful toys created in the Land of the Rising Sun-
Teaching kids how to properly brush their teeth is hard since we don’t have flip top heads, and that set of plastic choppers sitting on your dentist’s desk is downright creepy, so a puppet with a full set of teeth makes sense.
But did the final product have to be so creep-tastically adorable? I don't know if I want to brush its teeth or burn it with fire!

Remember those little green soldiers who patrolled the toybox when you were a kid? Well, I think these Fat Cute Soldiers ate those little green troopers and still had room for dessert! Part social commentary, part throwback toy, the Fat Cute Soldiers are 8 kinds of awesome!
Master Chief grew tired of all the killing and planet hopping, so he decided to reexplore one of his interests from his pre-Spartan days- cooking. He took some time off and started developing recipes that all beings could appreciate, and with a little Navy funding he was ready to share his culinary skills with the universe. However, Chief is not a creative guy, so when it came to branding he simply adopted the name of an old chef from the 20th century, dubbing his brand Chief Boyardee. His food products soon made their way onto store shelves across the galaxy, and people started gobbling up Chief's pasta, until his sales took a hit due to an unexpected outbreak of Sanghelian ecoli...
Feed your need for geeky fashion with this Chief Boyardee t-shirt by Dan Capitumini, it's the tasty way to make your fellow gamers smile with delight!
Easter Sunday is almost here and that means it's time to get decorating. While we covered some easy and classy decorations on Homes and Hues last year, that article overlooked one of the greatest parts of the holiday -spending time with your children.
That's why this year's Easter decorating article focuses on kid-friendly crafts that you can do together. From simple foam window decorations to beautiful flower displays that can teach kids a little bit about botany, we're sure you'll find some kind of children's activity that you and your little ones can enjoy together.
John has previously shown us what happens when we turn hair into horses, but what happens when you top it with an octopus? Amazingness. Yes, that's right. Amazingness is what happens when you top your hair with a fancy fancinator that looks like hair that is shaped just like an octopus. That sounds confusing. Just look at the pictures on DeviantArt and know you can get them on Etsy.
As someone with hair down to her waist, I pretty much live with my hair in a bun. That being said, I don't think I could ever even begin to compete with the gorgeous hairstyles on these precious pups -particularly that one up at the top there who could easily be a model for the perfect donut bun.
It's interesting what we can glean about people by certain choices they make. In the case of this business card collection, we can see who (at least, at the time in which they carried the card shown) is into simplicity, who tends to be flamboyant and who may have an ego. We can make educated guesses as to how they feel about or the significance they attach to their work by the size, shape, color, fonts and information on the cards. Business cards are the windows to the marketing soul — even American Psychos know that.
Some animals, like the Quokkas and red pandas, couldn't look grumpy if they tried. While we love them for making us smile, sometimes you need a Grumpy Cat to remind you that everyone has bad days and only idiots smile all the time. Of course, when you're really having a bad day, just one grumpy cat still isn't enough.
That's where this great article from the San Diego Zoo comes in -giving you even more grumpy critters to make your frown into more of a scowling smirk. Granted, some of these animals might not actually look quite as grumpy as the legendary Grumpy Cat herself, but they're still in a bad enough mood to make me feel better.
The article linked below features ten cases in which people, due to strange and rare medical conditions, have abilities unlike those of the general population. Their senses may be incredibly acute. They may have "superhuman" strength. Or in the case of Lizzie Velasquez in the video above, they are unable to gain weight normally.
While some of these conditions sound like enviable states of being, many are debilitating problems that render the lives of the affected a daunting, daily challenge. Yet with the incredible grace and perseverance of people such as Velasquez, the "afflicted" can change the lives of people who are much less physically challenged but have yet to master positive mental attitudes about their own lives.
Read about nine other people with amazing abilities due to unusual medical conditions here.
Cleopatra, a leopard tortoise in Golden, Colorado, suffers from pyramiding. This means that the scrutes of her shell did not grow evenly, but pushed up, forming pyramid-like structures. The pyramids make her vulnerable to other tortoises, as well as make it difficult for her to right herself if she gets flipped over. Holes that formed along the borders also make her susceptible to infections.
Roger Henry, a design student at Colorado Technical University, responded by building her a protective outer shell. He spent about 600 hours developing a design that would fit precisely over her shell. Then he built it with a 3d printer. Cleopatra has adapted to it well and is enjoying a healthier lifestyle as a result.
In the United States, professional sports are highly competitive. But designing the foods served at games may be even more competitive. Stadiums and ballparks across the country strive to offer extreme, one-of-a-kind foods to fans. These foods served at the concession stands include calorically gifted delights, such as horse collar sausages, bratwurst lollipops, and bacon donut hot dogs.
The current champion in this ever-shifting field is the deep fried nacho stick. Miller Park in Wisconsin, home of the Milwaukee Brewers, offers Inside the Park Nachos. This delicious concoction consists of a stick of beef covered with refried beans, rolled in crunched Doritos, then deep fried and covered with sour cream and cheese.
Photographer Clay Enos was authorized by Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice director Zack Snyder to shoot and reveal the first photo of Jesse Eisenberg as he will appear playing the character of Lex Luthor in the film. The movie release is scheduled for March 25, 2016. Thoughts, readers? Do you think Eisenberg looks the part?
Either Nature has blessed you with an unadorned head or you have removed those unsightly follicles from your pate. No matter how you came to live the bald lifestyle, you’ll need to wash your head. That’s a bit tricky in the very low gravity that astronauts on the International Space Station contend with.
Luca Parmitano, an Italian astronaut, shows us how he cleans his head without spraying water everywhere. Enormous globs of water adhere to his bare dome and remain in place until he wipes them away with a towel.
It’s a prank by the great Obvious Plant, who obviously planted this flyer at his local 24 Hour Fitness gym. It’s 1 of 3 that he’s played on the impressively patient gym staff. Trainer Chuck M. has a brilliant idea for staying in shape. Humans didn’t evolve to sit at desks or ride bikes. Our primitive ancestors didn’t have crossover machines. They got their exercise in everyday life by chasing and being chased by wild animals. So get in shape the natural way.
