Masterfully Crafted Game of Thrones Chess Table

Joe Lovchik used a CarveWright CNC milling machine to build this beautifully rendered chess table out of maple and cherry wood. He designed each component carefully, but the side panels of the table are by far the most impressive pieces. They're designed to resemble the icons and sigils that appear in the opening sequence of the Game of Thrones.

Disney Researchers Develop Highly Realistic Eyeballs

(Image from Tangled)

Disney's animation studios stay on the technological cutting edge with the assistance of company-operated research laboratories. One team of Disney researchers developed a means to capture the individual shape of human eyes in rich detail, including the deformation that the eyes experience as the pupils dilate.

The research, which you can see summarized in the video below, has led to the development of precise eye deformation simulation programs. Animators can use these to automatically generate pupil dilation that results from changing light conditions in cartoon settings.

Toolbox Drumming Is a Handyman's Song


(Video Link)

The toolbox in your closet is more than a way to injure yourself and make a household problem worse. It's also a great way to make music. The group Alpin Drums demonstrates this. While dressed in stereotypical Bavarian folk costumes, the members whack toolbox lids in a perfectly orchestrated and practiced performance.

10 Unusual Types of Public Transportation around the World


(Photo: The Barn Door/Eric Kodner)

Madeline Island is one of the Apostle Islands in Lake Superior. There's regular ferry service to it from Bayfield, Wisconsin. But when the lake freezes, residents use this type of vehicle to travel to and from the island. It's called an "ice angel" or "windsled."


(Video Link)

It's an enclosed iceboat. Fans on the back push it over the surface. Although there's an ice road that Madeline Island's residents can drive cars over, many find the ice angel safer.

This is 1 of 10 unusual forms of public transportation rounded up by When on Earth. Others include amphibious vehicles in London and toboggans in Madeira.

17 Images That Prove The Elf On The Shelf Isn't As Innocent As He Looks

The Elf On The Shelf seemingly appeared out of nowhere and instantly became a standard Christmastime character, but what do we actually know about that little toy elf with the mischievous smile?

(Image Link)

We know he started out as a character from Carol Aebersold's self published book The Elf On The Shelf: A Christmas Tradition, where the sneaky little guy is revealed to be one of Santa's spies in the mortal realm.

We also know that he likes to speak in rhymes, and that the illustrations by Coe Steinwart really brought the character to life, so much so that people wished to bring a little elf home to their shelf, thus beginning the Elf on the Shelf doll craze:

(Image Link)

Fans of the book really should have thought twice before wishing that sneaky little guy would come to life, and subsequently letting him into their homes, because that little elf has some dark secrets which need to come to light:

(Image Link)

The Elf on the Shelf wasn't always on the Naughty list- he started out as quite the do-gooder and nice guy, but he grew bored of sitting on shelves and working for The Man so he started acting out against his host families:

(Image Link)

Fame went straight to his head, but with fame comes a feeling of isolation from the rest of the toys. The Elf began to reevaluate his role in the Christmastime world, and soon he had set his sights on spreading chaos and mischief around instead of gifts and cheer:

The Navy's New Drone Looks and Swims Like a Shark


(Photo: Edward Guttierrez/US Navy)

This is the GhostSwimmer, a new drone developed for the US Navy. It's 5 feet long and designed to resemble a shark. It swims like one, too! It flips its tail back and forth, like a shark, to navigate waters between 10 inches and 300 feet deep.

An operator can use a 500-foot tether to control it, or command it to surface periodically to receive new instructions. The Navy hopes to use it for reconnaissance and ship inspection.

Hopefully future models will include features of the EATR, a robot that could, hypothetically, feed off human flesh. Because that would, I suspect, extend its range.

1980s Slang Poster is Righteous



Husband and wife team Timothy and Aurelia Sanders, working under the company name Charley Chartwell, designed this blast from the past: a poster of 1980s slang. Anyone who has lived through the 1980s should be familiar with most of these expressions, many of which ended up being written into the pop culture of the time by way of songs, movies, television and books.

Dog Gets 3D Printed Legs

Derby was born with malformed front legs. He can't walk normally on them. His owners found a solution from the company 3DSystems. The engineers there designed and printed out prosthetic legs for Derby to use.

The legs have rounded feet. This unusual design serves an important purpose. Peg-like prosthetic feet can get stuck into the ground easily. Derby's rounded legs, however, let him keep going over small obstacles.


(Video Link)

Derby's owners report that he now runs at least 2-3 miles every day--and faster than they can! He certainly looks happy about his new legs, too.

Dog Actually Eats Student's Homework, Needs Medical Intervention

YouTube Link

Texas high school student Reagan Hardin made a diorama of a farm in the middle ages for her AP World History class. But before she could turn in her homework, her dog Roscoe scarfed it down, plastic sheep and all. Roscoe became ill, and had to be taken to the vet for an emergency procedure to remove the plastic animals, which was done with an endoscope. Roscoe has made a full recovery. In the end, Reagan was able to prove to the teacher that she wasn't using the age-old excuse. -Via Arbroath

9 Things You Might Not Know about Home Alone

Would a child alone hunted by criminals be scarred for life from the experience? Former child actor Macaulay Culkin is--literally. During one scene for the 1990 Christmas movie Home Alone, co-star Joe Pesci bit Culkin on the finger. It was in the script, but Pesci didn't mean to bite so hard. Still, he left a mark on Culkin's finger that he has to this day.

Cat-At Loves Lasers - The Lighter Side Of The Dark Side


Cat-At Loves Lasers by Nathan Davis

You probably only know those AT mech units from their appearance in that famous snowy battle on Hoth, but believe it or not those clomping four legged war machines start out looking pretty darn cute. They're just like little metal kitties when they're young, when they're too tiny to take part in any wars, but they all dream of growing up big and strong so they can stride across the battlefield in style. Until then they're just as happy to chase a laser beam around the room all day, and although Darth won't admit it he's mighty amused by their cute metal kitty antics, and he often silences his electronic voice processor so he can laugh out loud without being heard!

Share some intergalactic humor with the world by wearing this Cat-At Loves Lasers, your fellow SW fans won't have to force a laugh- it'll come naturally when they see you wearing this shirt!

Mr. Christmas - His Heart Is Full Of Unwashed Socks And Yuletide Cheer


Mr. Christmas by Warbucks Design

When it came time for little Cindy Lou Who to write her memoirs she couldn't help but center the story around that furry green grump known as The Grinch, also known as the guy who almost stole Christmas from Cindy's town. He was a mean one, a green one, like no other angry hermit you've ever seen one, and though he hated to admit it his body had been invaded by Christmas cheer. Cindy's book would change the way people thought about furry hermits, interspecies fellowship and the holiday season, and when Mr. Christmas hit the bookstore shelves no grinchly loner, or their antlered beagle, would go without dinner and a gift at Christmastime ever again.

Give the gift that keeps on giving this Christmas- grab this Mr. Christmas t-shirt by Warbucks Design and share your love of the season all year long!

A "Shake It Off" Parody for Hanukkah


(Video Link)

Tuesday is the first day of Hanukkah, an 8-day Jewish holiday celebrating a miraculous event during the Maccabean Revolt. To mark the occasion, the musical group Six13 (warning: auto-play video) offers this lively parody of Taylor Swift's song "Shake It Off," which is embedded below.

The song helpfully summarizes the traditions and origins of the holiday in its lyrics. Here's a sample:

Back in 160 B.C.E.
Lived Judah Maccabee
His army was so weak
But they still beat the Greeks

Supply of oil wasn't great
But a miracle took place
It burned for 8 whole days
It burned for 8 whole days

Taste the Rainbow one Color at a Time with a Color-Sensitive Skittle Sorter


(Video Link)

Standard Skittles candies come in red, yellow, orange, violet, and green. Do you have a favorite? To the best of my knowledge, they all taste the same. But if you're picky about the color, then this automatic Skittles color sorter is for you.

Alice Kassar, Jesse Checkla, Mikhail Rudinskiy, who are students at Cornell University, made it a class project. It exposes the Skittles to light, then determines the color based on the RGV values reflected back. A sorting arm adjusts to move each Skittle into the correct silo, which feeds it into a bag. Pull the bag across a hot wire to seal it and then you've got a bag of monochrome Skittles.

The Greatest Film Rating Ever

Why is the 1989 monster flick Godzilla vs. Biollante rated PG? It's not for foul language or frightening situations, but "Traditional Godzilla Violence." Besides being a great band name, Traditional Godzilla Violence should be the aspiration of every work of fiction.

That film, by the way, pits Godzilla against a huge mutant rosebush--a story as old as time itself.

7 Reasons Why Harry Potter and The Lord of the Rings Should Be Required Reading in School


(Photo: Pedro Dias)

Neither of these series was required reading for me when I was in high school, but Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone was required reading when I took a children's literature class in library school. At the time, I was working full time and attending school full time, so I didn't look at the hefty Harry Potter novel on the syllabus with any joy. One afternoon, I walked into a bookstore, skimmed through a copy in 3 hours, and crossed it off my to-do list.

I didn't enjoy reading Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. But perhaps I would have if I had experienced it through a literature class led by a good teacher. Mackenzie Patel of the Huffington Post thinks that the Harry Potter novels and J.R.R. Toklien's The Lord of the Rings should be required reading in high school English classes. Here are her first 2 arguments:

1. Both novels teach the importance of loyalty, friendship and honesty (i.e. the classic trio of Harry, Ron and Hermione and the Fellowship). For example, in chapter 5 of Harry Potter and The Half Blood Prince, "He [Harry] knew that Ron and Hermione were more shocked than they were letting on, but the mere fact that they were still there on either side of him... was worth more than he could ever tell them."

2. Both include advanced vocabulary that would be a boon when students have to take state-administered exams (i.e. I received a 790 on SAT reading because I read like a fiend). Lord of the Rings takes the gold medal in this category for including obscure words such as "malice," "unceasing," and "bestirred."

Do you agree with Patel's conclusion?

10 Ways to Offend People in Other Countries


(Photo: Brooklyn3012)

Practice has paid off and you're now good at offending people in your own country. But what about other nations and cultures? What may work in your own culture may not successfully offend people in others. Thankfully, When on Earth has a list of 10 ways you can offend people around the world.

For example, in Australia and New Zealand, it's considered snobbish to sit in the back seat of a taxi. Most natives, When on Earth informs us, sit in the front seat with the cabbie. So: into the back seat you go.

Together they would share a love affair worthy of the most romantic romance novel, and yet nobody would ever know about their rendezvous on the roof...

Hilariously Inappropriate Kids Toys

Buying a kid a toy for Christmas can be a kind and thoughtful gesture, but it can also lead to death by embarrassment and utter humiliation, depending on the toy and it’s *ahem* overall shape.

It’s probably best not to cheap out when buying a toy to give as a present, because knock-offs often have aesthetic flaws that are really hard to overlook.

(Image Link)

When in doubt take a step back and look at the overall shape of the toy, and where certain components are placed, to ensure there’s nothing visually inappropriate going on before you give it to a kid.

(Image Link)

And for the love of Kris Kringle think about what message that toy is sending to the child and their parents, because you wouldn’t want to come off looking like the world’s creepiest gift giver!

(Image Link)

When in doubt consult this list of 16 Outrageously Inappropriate Kids' Toys and see if the toy in question resembles any of the entries, it’ll help save you from becoming the butt of many jokes in the upcoming year!

20 Houses Crazy With Christmas Cheer

Source: crazy frankensein

Driving around and checking out Christmas light displays is a popular pastime during the holiday season. One thing that's interesting is the sense of individuality in each display. Every design lends insight into the personalities of the people who create them. But is there a point in which the decorator goes overboard? These homes have nary a five-foot expanse of their exteriors sans décor. What do you think?

Five Horrific Death Scenes In Disney Features

For all the feel good moments, empowering messages and adorable characters doing adorable things in our favorite Disney films there are just as many dark moments and bitter ends.

It may come as a surprise to some Disney fans that there’s a character (usually background/supporting) death in every single Disney film, from Scar's death by laughing hyena in The Lion King to Bambi’s mom being shot, but those deaths are pretty obvious.

What about the deaths you aren't supposed to think about- those which are justified by the main character's destiny, or the subtle off-screen deaths that occur without fanfare or recognition in the storyline?

You can find 5 examples of Horrific Deaths You Forgot Were In Disney Cartoons over at Dorkly, where they’re committed to revealing the grim truth about your favorite toons!
