Rani the goat from Karachi, Pakistan seems to defy gravity as he climbs up on one platform stacked upon another. When you think that he's done, his handler, Osman Ali, adds another. Now, let's see them trade places. That would be a great act.
Miss Insomnia Tulip of the internet-famous Lou Lou P’s Delights bakery makes amazing pastries that look like real objects, such as naked Burt Reynolds and naked David Hasselhoff. But she can do more than just show aging male celebrities undressed with cake. Her most recent project is a chocolate orange. She reveals hidden in its form an armadillo curled up to protect itself from your appetite.
Visitors to the South Korean aquarium where this video was shot had no idea they'd be learning a lesson about nature's cruel sense of humor that day, but now they know the aquarium stocks their tanks with the freshest seafood money can buy!
Alternate history stories are compelling to read or watch, and they also make for really fun video games, but creating alternate history art seems hard for an artist to do well.
For one thing the viewer would have to know which historical period or event the artist is referencing, and then the whole thing would have to be rendered realistically enough to visually tell the tale for you.
Jakub Rozalski's paintings have all of the elements of a perfect alt history art piece in place, visually transporting us to another time that never truly existed, at least not in our dimension.
For instance- what would Poland's January Uprising of 1863 against Russian rule have looked like if the Polish insurgents used mechs to help them fight for freedom?

Actress Salma Hayek suffered what she termed a "minor head injury" on the film set of upcoming comedy Drunk Parents recently. When she was injured, she was forced to make a trip to the emergency room, and did so without changing out of her set wardrobe.
On this particular day, her wardrobe included a t-shirt that was, as Hayek put it, "completely inappropriate for the hospital." But not necessarily, Salma. In fact, it looks as if it could be the way a hurried E.R. doctor might provide a time-is-of-the-essence, emergency, double simultaneous breast exam. Thus, the shirt was completely on the medical level!
Salma posted the above photo to her Instagram account and thanked the E.R. doctors of an unnamed upstate New York hospital for their time and attention to her case. Something tells me it wasn't their most unpleasant patient consult in emergency that day.
It's just basic science: any food can be improved by adding bacon and/or deep-frying. Amy of the wonderful food blog Oh, Bite It evidences this fact continously.
Her latest demonstration is the ideal breakfast food: Twinkies, wrapped in bacon, then deep fried. It's the right way to start the day, especially if you eat them as I do: with powdered sugar and chocolate syrup on top.
Gabriel Horchler is the Head of Cataloging at the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C. He likes to row. 15 years ago, he realized that most of his daily commute from his home in Cheverly, Maryland, ran parallel to the Anacostia River. He could drive through heavy traffic . . . or he could row along the almost vacant river.
Now, even at the age of 71, Horchler begins his day by biking to a neighborhood park, then pushing his rowing shell into the water. He pilots it down the river to a community boathouse, where he keeps his second bike. He takes that bike to the Library of Congress.
The entire trip takes him 90 minutes. He loves it, and the daily workout has kept him in fantastic physical condition. The Washington Post reports:
Some say he’s insane. In Horchler’s mind, the daily ritual of sitting in bumper-to-bumper traffic is what’s insane.
“I don’t feel that I’m superior to these people in the traffic jam, but I definitely appreciate the quiet and . . . the water and the sound of the oars in the water,” he said. “It changes every day. You see different wildlife. . . . The quality of the water, sometimes it’s filthy, sometimes it’s amazingly clean. And then, with the seasons, the vegetation changes. It’s wonderful.”
This is Eric Cajiuat, the King of Rock 'n' Roll, as well as master of the Force. You can almost hear the midi-chlorians in his music. Like any Jedi, he's built his own microphone and he knows how to use it. He can kill with it, but like the original King, he's here to conquer the Empire with love and music.
To paraphrase James Thurber: one glass of wine is enough. Two is too many. Three is not enough.
And if you walk around with this glass in your hand, people will think that you're already on number four. Red5 offers this novelty wine glass that lets you sip wine from what appears to be the base of the glass. This will be the moment when friends conclude that you've got a drinking problem.
This past week in Scotland, Ireland and northern England, a rare natural phenomena colored the clouds with spectacular pastel rainbows, pleasing photographers and nature lovers alike. SOme lucky U.K. observers were treated to a positively beautiful bonus in the face of any negatives ushered in by Storm Henry. When the storm brought in a cold front, that air allowed for the formation of nacreous clouds.
Once the sun set, parts of U.K. could see the prismatic show visible only at that time, when ice crystals are carried upon jets of stratospheric air.
Santa Clara five-bedroom, ad devoid of interior shots: Yours for a mere $6,000 per night
Accusations of real estate sale and rental price gouging in cities with high or rapidly rising costs of living are frequently made in recent times. Not surprisingly, the Airbnb offerings in such cities are no strangers to those allegations. Throw in a temporary circumstance like the Super Bowl, and these shady practices can turn downright ludicrous on a dime.
Grab a few smiles at the expense of the Airbnb listings in the article linked below, which highlights some of the craziest prices for San Francisco accomodations during and around the time of Super Bowl 50. Some such crazy prices are also attached to curious details regarding the dwellings and deals in question.
For example, the article writer's examination of the listing pictured below concerns its Airbnb ad, which reads:
"No other apartment in San Francisco will you be provided with your own personal concierge on call 24 hrs during your stay I will take you wherever you need to go answer all your questions and needs, Pick up to and from airport and to and from game!"
The writer's response:
"Let’s see. A taxi from SFO to Alamo Square is about $55 each way. An Uber from Alamo Square to Levi’s Stadium is about $85 each way, but let’s assume there will be surge pricing and triple that. Total transportation costs for your weekend will be about $620.
But no other apartment in San Francisco offers all this:"
Lionsgate has announced their plans to make a film from the popular TV series MacGyver, which ran from 1985-1992 and starred Richard Dean Anderson and Dana Elcar. Sources said that the announcement wasn't heavy on detail, which was similar to their October 2015 announcement of a MacGyver TV series. The television show is intended to be a prequel of the 1980s series, in that it focuses on MacGyver as a mechanically crafty twentysomething.
The DeLorean DMC-12--a commercial failure almost universally known from Back to the Future--is back in production. This is the first commercial for the revived brand. Alexander Alexandrov directed this short film titled "Lucky Coin." It's accented with lines from "The Transhumanist's Lament," a poem by futurist Benjamin Perkins Burke.
When I've captured my adversary and he says, "Look, before you kill me, will you at least tell me what this is all about?" I'll say, "No." and shoot him. No, on second thought I'll shoot him then say "No."
See also: rules 3, 4, 6, 16, 38, 46, and 52. The Evil Overlord List is filled with practical advice for everyday life, not just strategic counsel would-be villains from television and movies.
This supercut by Jukka-Pekka Bohm shows how common this trope is. In at least 88 movies, villains and heroes express regret that they did not immediately slay enemies at the first opportunity. You can find a complete list in the comments at the video link.
St. John of the Cross School and St. Cletus Catholic School faced off at at Immaculate Conception High School in Illinois in the basketball game to decide the champion of the Surburban Parish League. The score was tied at 28. The clock ticked down.
Just as the buzzer rang, Jack Hlavin of St. John of the Cross hurled the ball across three-fourths of the court toward St. Cletus's basket. It swooshed through perfectly, delivering the victory to St. John of the Cross and its newest hero, Jack Hlavin.
Dressing up in business attire for your day job is no fun, and no matter how good you think your outfit looks you know that business wear isn't made for comfort.
So what's a climber of corporate ladders to do when they're looking for something both comfortable and stylish to wear to work?
They need some Bammies, the pajamas that are business appropriate in style yet so comfortable to wear you might fall asleep at your desk.
The Bammies line was designed by Julia Ford-Carther and Rosario Chozas to "seamlessly transition from the home to the office then out for a night on the town", starting the "elastic revolution" with their smart yet sleepy-headed designs.
Some of the ideas are fun, others are absolute game changers that we shouldn't have had to live without for so long, like this grocery store that lets you buy a "Walkin' Around Beer" for a buck. Now that's grocery shopping in style!
As it's been said before: droids are slaves. C-3PO is too cheerful about the experience, but R2-D2 isn't. He lets the biological characters know what he thinks about them all the time. They just can't understand him, which is probably a good thing. R2 takes all the risks, does all the work, and gets little of the credit. It's no wonder that he eventually snaps.
When you're hungry and you don't want to cook for yourself, you go to a restaurant. But who knew that sea lions thought the same way? At least one little guy in San Diego does as he headed to a beach-front restaurant The Marine Room yesterday morning and sat himself in a booth awaiting service.
While the waitstaff was slow to show up for work, the little guy took in the great view.
Unfortunately, he never got his order of fish and chips, but he was taken in by a rescue team -though only after executive chef Bernard Guillas took a few choice photos of the odd occurrence.
This footage illustrates how Thomas Anamun trained his dog Bentley to operate on a cleanliness level above most canines. When Bentley gets to the welcome mat at the entrance of his home, he stops to wipe his paws thoroughly before walking through the doorway. Once the pup decides his job is done, his presence inside the house is celebrated by an unnamed doggie companion of his at the top of the stairs. Good boy, Bentley, and welcome home!

In an explanation that is hardly news to people who successfully work at keeping their bodies healthy and height/weight proportionate, this AsapSCIENCE clip provides information on the importance of diet vs. exercise in that vein. It's not which is more beneficial, it's a matter of practicality and the simple equation of necessary fuel vs. excess. Via Laughing Squid
It's not surprising that Marvel and DC Comics, the two biggest comic book companies in the world, have characters that are very similar to each other, on purpose or otherwise.
But whoever creates the original character the imitator is based on gets bragging rights because their character came first, even if the imitation ends up outshining the original by a mile.
Darren Rawlings makes their equivalents meet up in his series "Little Friends", and even if you can't decide which character is cooler in each image you'll most certainly agree that Darren's drawings are quite charming!
Those of you who were alive and over 5 in the 1990s will remember how many things were seen as normal then would be considered quite bizarre nowadays, like the group OMC who made the hit song "How Bizarre".
And even if you don't miss OMC there are bound to be plenty of things from the 90s you do miss, like the pleasant sound of a floppy disk whirring in the drive. Computers are too darn quiet nowadays!
We miss the sound of 90s slang, which was a lot like 80s slang only more Valley Girl inspired thanks to movies like Clueless, and the smooth sound of Bob Barker telling someone the rules of the game on The Price Is Right.
Why, here's a contestant now, come on down Aaron Paul!
If you're as nostalgic about the 90s as I am then you should check out these entertaining roundups guaranteed to get you in the mood for some Shark Bites fruit snacks and an Orbitz.
When it comes to dentists, many people would likely prefer to forget that they exist as much as possible. That is, in between cleanings, pretend the industry is just a bad dream you have once or twice a year.
But for those that want to "bite the bullet," there are a few dentistry industry secrets of which it might benefit us to be cognizant. For instance, is anything in the office particularly germy? As a matter of fact,
13. THOSE BIB CLIPS MIGHT BE A LITTLE DIRTY.
Hygienists take great care to prepare examination rooms both before and after each patient arrives. A recent study by Tufts University, however, indicates that the bib clips used to keep those paper spit-catchers around your neck might not be fully sterile. Of 20 clips the researchers tested after use, 40 percent retained aerobic bacteria and 70 percent retained anaerobic bacteria even after disinfection. The study recommends that the industry consider disposable clips.
During World War II, almost all able-bodied young men entered military service, either as volunteers or draftees.
So who played professional football?
That became a serious problem for two teams in particular: the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Philadelphia Eagles. These teams lost so many players that they had to merge into one team known as the Steagles.
Bill Hewitt, who was excused from military service for a “perforated eardrum” and served as the Steagles’ defensive end during the 1943 season, was so guilt-ridden that he quit the team mid-season, and went to go work in a milk factory.
Other Steagles players faced more pressing medical problems: Tony Bova, the receiver, “was completely blind in one eye and partially blind in the other. Two of his teammate, Ed Michaels and Ray Graves, were entirely deaf in one ear. John Butler, who, as tailback, was required to run dozens of offensive lines per game, had arthritis in his knees. In a wide variety of respects, the Steagles team was riddled with ailments.
How do you get your face looking sharp and wrinkle-free? Back in the 90s, not everyone could afford facelifts like you kids these days. No, we only had Facercise. It's like bodybuilding for your face. Carole Maggio had many TV appearances that she used to promote the techniques that she developed.
