New Chinese Secret Weapon - A Giant Panda Wearing Iron Man Armor

It has become abundantly clear the Chinese are obsessed with Iron Man, and not just because his armor is red and gold in color just like their flag.

They're also obsessed with panda bears, which they thankfully began to cherish and protect before they went extinct, and now they've brought both obsessions together in one amazing statue.

This giant Iron Panda statue was created by Chinese artist Bi Heng, measures nearly thirty feet tall and must weigh a ton considering normal sized pandas definitely aren't lightweights.

The statue hangs around Shenyang, where people cherish this massive testament to mammalian ingenuity, and if the world is ever in trouble Iron Panda will be there to preserve balance with a blast of his Yin-Yang palm laser.

Some Of The Most Bizarre Things The Hulk Has Ever Done

The Hulk is one of the most predictable characters in the Marvel Universe, because his battles almost always involve smashing or sheer resilience, but he's also a bit of a head case too.

And whether he's locked in a fit of rage, struggling with his identity crisis or trying to figure out why his friends are fighting with him The Hulk definitely isn't all there mentally.

Over the years the Jade Giant has made some downright bizarre decisions, such as hooking up with his first cousin She-Hulk, playing baseball while wearing blackface, and beating up Santa Claus in front of a bunch of kids.

Beatin' on Thor is one thing, but you'd better leave Santa Claus alone you big green/gray brute!

Ridiculously Funny Customer Complaint Tweets

If you think working in retail is hard try working in the customer service department, now those poor employees have to deal with the worst humanity has to offer.

At least they get a good laugh out of some of the customer complaints that come in, although for every fool who can't figure out the right way to open a pizza box there's a customer with a valid problem.

(Image Link)

But ever since customers started complaining online their issues with companies have become even more ridiculous.

(Image Link)

And now customer service agents have to wade through a sea of trolls to address the real customers with valid complaints, moving us one step closer to the world of Idiocracy.

Why Mario Goes through the Pipes

Most of us don't grow up to be heroes, or even to live the lives that we had planned. That's okay--or it should be. You can still be a hero to the person whose toilet is clogged.

2 Fans Played Star Wars Music outside of John Williams's House. He Came out to Greet Them.

Michael Miller got his flugelhorn and Bryce Hayashi got his trumpet and they journeyed to the home of John Williams, the composer of the music of Star Wars. Standing outside his home, they played the title theme for the franchise.

It was a risky move. Williams could have taken offense at having his private life invaded by fans. But he was instead delighted at their performance. He came out of his house to greet them.

The Funeral for the Last 9/11 Fire Chief Takes Place Due to Bone Marrow Donation


(Photo of Battalion Chief Lawrence Stack via the New York Times)

Battalion Chief Lawrence Stack, 58, of the New York Fire Department looked through his binoculars on the morning of September 11, 2001 as the second plane hit the south tower of the World Trade Center:

“He lowered his binoculars and said, ‘Guys, I think they’re going to need us,’ ” his son said, recalling what he has been told of that day.

Along with too many of his comrades, Chief Stack fell in the line of duty on that day. His body was never recovered.

That's a problem because to hold a Catholic funeral Mass, you must have present the remains of the deceased. Fortunately, Stack donated bone marrow in 2000. Last year, his family asked the New York Blood Center to locate and return the sample. The Star-Tribune reported in June that Stack's bone marrow donation has been returned to his family. Now they can proceed with a funeral Mass:

His funeral will be held Friday at Sts. Philip and James Church in St. James on Long Island, with the expansive pageantry and huge turnout of firefighters and officers that accompany all departmental ceremonies.

How to Fast for Ramadan Where the Days Are over 20 Hours Long


(Photo of the Midnight Sun Mosque in Inuvik by the US Embassy to Canada)

The town of Iqaluit in the Canadian Arctic has a growing Muslim community. Many members fast from sunup to sundown during the sacred month of Ramadan. That's a challenge because during the summer, daylight can last longer than 20 hours. The Guardian talked to Muslims there about the experience:

“I haven’t fainted once,” said 29-year-old Abdul Karim, one of the few in the city who has fastidiously timed his Ramadan fast to the Arctic sun since moving from Ottawa in 2011. This year that means eating at about 1.30am before the sun rises and breaking his fast at about 11pm when the sun sets.

Other Muslims in the Canadian Arctic set their fasting timetable by more southerly cities:

Most in Iqaluit adhere to the timetable followed by Muslims in Ottawa, some 1,300 miles south of the city – a nod to the advice of Muslim scholars who have said Muslims in the far north should observe Ramadan using the timetable of Mecca or the nearest Muslim city.

Ice Cream Served on Grilled Corn on the Cob

(Photo: Dominique Ansel)

Sure, it sounds like a random idea. But it's not. Chef Dominique Ansel, the inventor of the cronut and the chocolate chip milk shot, knows what he's doing. His research led him to the invention of Crème de la Corn. It's made with an ear of unshucked corn grilled with butter and soy sauce. On top is a swirl of Ansel's own Caramel Sweet Corn-flavored soft serve ice cream which is itself topped by caramel and a few kernels of corn.

What does it taste like? Kay of Rocket News 24 tried Ansel's latest confection. She says:

The caramel and corn in the ice cream were certainly a winning and sweet combination! And along with the corn jam, the ice cream was like a cold, frozen form of pure corn and sweetness — certainly a great treat for the hot summer.

But what’s brilliant about this Crème de la Corn is that it’s not over when you’ve finished eating the ice cream. You have the grilled corn cob on the bottom which is essentially an edible ice cream cone!

Amazon.com's Jeff Bezos Will Appear in Star Trek

(Photo: Steve Jurvetson)

When Star Trek Beyond comes out on Friday, watch carefully and you'll see Jeff Bezos in the background. The founder of Amazon.com introduced us to the future of retail and is now participating in the future in a small role in the latest Star Trek movie. The Associated Press quotes director Justin Lin about the experience:

"He was awesome," said Lin. "It was like a president was visiting, you know? He had a big entourage! But it didn't matter because he was so into it. He had to wait around all day because it was one day we were shooting, like, three different scenes and, it was also credit to Jeff because ... he just nailed it every time."

Bezos has spoken in interviews of his passion for Star Trek and said his childhood dreams of space led him to found his private space travel company, named Blue Origin.

IMDb already lists Bezos in the film as a "Starfleet Official."

Anime Recommendations and Open Thread


(I Will Become the Pirate King t-shirt on sale at the NeatoShop)

I watch more anime than is medically advisable and, every few months, make viewing recommendations and ask for yours. Let's do it again!

Of all the new series I've tried this season, the most striking is Orange, a romance with a tragic ambiance. Naho, a high school student, recieves a mysterious letter. It contains instructions from herself, written 10 years into the future. A crisis is coming--one that will impact herself and her friends forever. She can change the future.

Or can she? It seems simple enough, but Naho finds that altering the present isn't easy. She has less control over the wellbeing of her friends than she thinks.

In Planetarian, it has been 30 years since the collapse of civilization in some mysterious apocalyptic event. Kuzuya, a scavenger, explores the remains of an abandoned shopping mall. He's looking for food and other essential supplies. But what he finds instead is Yumeni, an android girl who works at the planetarium.

She doesn't understand why no one comes to her facility anymore or that the projector doesn't work. But her naive and carefree manner charms Kuzuya, who decides to repair the projector so that they can again see the stars circling over a ravaged Earth.

How to Make a Poutine Taco

It's not quite Mexican and it's not quite Canadian. It's Mexiadian food. The Vulgar Chef (content warning: foul language) expands this fusion food tradition with his poutine taco.

First, he chopped up French fries and added shredded cheese. After warming this mixture, he shaped it into a taco shell and placed it in a taco mold. After adding cheese curd and brown gravy, he was ready for an awesomely unhealthy meal.

Road Rage Attacker May Escape Jail If She Can Prove She's An Expert Knitter

(Image Link)

Road rage incidents are rarely forgivable, especially when the rager inflicts bodily harm on a fellow motorist just because they couldn't contain their anger.

And yet it seems getting away with flipping out and punching someone in the face while road raging isn't that hard, provided you have a ridiculous excuse for your behavior.

A rageaholic by the name of Amanda McCabe was recently hauled into Dundee Sheriff court after tailing a fellow driver then dragging the woman out of her car and punching her in the face.

She told the judge her tailing the victim was a coincidence, since she was an expert knitter headed to a specialist wool shop in the same direction when the slow driver got in her way:

On hearing that, Sheriff Rafferty laid down a challenge – one that he said could be the difference between liberty and prison.

He told McCabe she would return to court on December 14 with “multiple knitted items” capable of being sold in a charity shop and raising money for good causes.

Put on the spot, she claimed she could knit a jumper in two-to-three-days at a cost of £6 to £7.

Knitting jumpers to avoid jail time- how's that for an unlikely yarn?!

The Story of Bad Angel

(Photos: Southern Arizona Guide)

This is Bad Angel, an American P-51 Mustang fighter aircraft at the Pima Air and Space Museum in Pima, Arizona. 

Like many World War II aircraft, it has kill markings on the side. Do you notice anything unusual about them?

Yes, that's an American flag. Lt. Louis Curdes was credited with shooting down an American aircraft while flying Bad Angel. Jim Gressinger, who visited the Pima Air and Space Museum, tells the whole story at Southern Arizona Guide.

Sued Artist Insists He Didn't Make Multi-Million Dollar Painting


(Photo: Whittin Sabbatini/New York Times)

Peter Doig is a world-renowned artist in high demand by art collectors. His paintings have sold for as high as $25 million. Does his body of work include this desert scene? Doig, as quoted in the Seattle Times, says no:

“I said, ‘Nice painting,’ ” he recalled in an interview. “ ‘Not by me.’ ”

That's the problem. Robert Fletcher says that 40 years ago, while still a teenager, Doig was incarcerated for LSD possession at a juvenile prison in Canada. At the time, Fletcher worked as a guard there. He says that Doig painted the scene and sold it to him for $100.

As a Doig painting, it's potentially worth millions of dollars--but only if it's an authentic Doig painting. And Doig says that it's not his work. So Fletcher is suing Doig for $5 million and asking a US federal court to declare the painting authentic:

Art-law experts say they can’t recall anything like it, certainly not for a major artist like Doig.

“To have to disprove that you created a work seems somehow wrong and not fair,” said Amy Adler, a professor at New York University Law School.

Fletcher's case has great challenges. For one, there are no records indicating that Doig was ever imprisoned at the facility where Fletcher worked.

How To Find A Hobby

Life can start to feel a bit monotonous when you don't have a hobby, and there's nothing like finding, and engaging in, an activity you enjoy to help pull you out of a rut.

But don't overlook the things you're already really, really good at, such as eating while laying down, keeping track of the TV remote and wearing the same clothes for three days in a row.

Because according to CollegeHumor comic artist AC Stuart aka Noob the Loser these are all valid options so long as they make you happy. Hobby problem solved!

Tubing Trip Goes Awry When Women Learn That the River Doesn't Run in a Circle


(Image: Google Maps/Michigan Live)

It seemed like a good idea at the time. After all, floating down a stream in an inner tube can be fun. You just need to arrange for someone to pick you up at a certain point and deliver you back to your starting point where you parked your car.

But these three women in Muskegon County, Michigan didn't know that because they had never tubed before. When they arrived at a launch site on the Muskegon River, someone told them that there was no need to arrange for pickup downstream because the river ran in a circle. If they stayed in the water, they'd just float back to starting point.

Alas, hydrology did not cooperate. The Muskegon River does not flow in a circle. Firefighters rescued them 20 hours later after they spent a night floating 3 miles downstream. Michigan Live interviewed Fire Chief Bob Grabinski about the incident:

Muskegon Township firefighters launched their 16-foot jet propulsion river rescue boat from the Holton Duck Lake Road launch ramp and found the women about a quarter-mile downriver, he said. Dalton Township firefighters also responded with their boat in case it was needed.

Other than a few bug bites and scratches, the women were fine, Grabinski said. He estimated they had traveled roughly 3 miles.

"In their words, they're never going tubing again," he said. "My words are know the river or take someone with you who knows it and have a plan."

Kids Swim with Giant Python


(Video Link)

This is Sumatra, a giant albino Burmese python. She works with Redding Reptile Parties, an event service in Redding, California that brings reptiles to parties. In this video, Sumatra enjoys a hot summer day in the pool with two young friends.

Don't worry about the girls! They're safe. Corey Williams, Sumatra's owner, describes how gentle she is:

She has been to over 500 birthday parties and many schools, she has been around kids since she was a baby, she has never killed anything she even likes our dogs and cat. funny story I have found the most humane way to kill a rabbit or chicken is to give them a strong hit to the back of the neck with a hard object this normally kills them instantly for I don't like to see any animal suffer. Anyway I came in later to see if Sumatra had eaten and the chicken was walking around her cage, she would not touch it unless it was dead so I killed it for sure this time and she ate it right away.

Actors Who Are Terrible To Their Fans

Some fans take their celebrity worship too far when they find themselves face-to-face with the object of their affection, and this creates awkwardness between fan and idol.

But the awkward feeling isn't always the fan's fault, because some celebs hate dealing with fans so much they turn an already tense moment into sheer social torture.

Even worse- the celebs who use social media to ridicule their fans, talking trash about the people who help pay for their decadent lifestyles and acting like they're "over it" when it comes to having a fanbase.

(YouTube Link)

Screen Rant presents a list of 10 Famous Actors Who Are Terrible To Their Fans, including some stuff about Christian Bale (angry) and Shia LaBeouf (batty), and the time Jesse Eisenberg hated the fans at Comic-Con so much he compared it to a genocide.

Kids Say And Do The Darndest Things, And Then Their Parents Tweet About It

The Physics of the Ghostbusters Twinkie


(Video Link)

In Ghostbusters, Dr. Egon Spengler tries to explain the level of paranormal danger that New York City faces. He uses a Twinkie as an anology:

Let's say this Twinkie represents the normal amount of psychokinetic energy in the New York area. According to this morning's sample, it would be a Twinkie 35 feet long, weighing approximately 600 pounds.

What does that mean, scientifically? J. Kenji López-Alt of Serious Eats writes in great detail about the physical characteristics of a Twinkie this size and weight. The Spengler Twinkie creates serious problems because a Twinkie scaled up to that size would weigh much more than 600 pounds and collapse under its own weight:

A Twinkie 35 feet long would actually weigh 1.25 million times more than a standard Twinkie, or approximately 53 tons. And it gets worse. As any snack-cake historian could tell you, modern Twinkies are different from 1984 Ghostbusters-era Twinkies. Twinkies were discontinued briefly a couple of years back and reemerged from Hostess's bankruptcy as shorter, less dense versions of their previous form. While modern Twinkies are 9.9 centimeters long and weigh 38.5 grams, 1984 Twinkies were 10.2 centimeters long and weighed 42.5 grams. Redoing the calculations with those measurements gives you a Twinkie that weighs 54 tons.

But note that Spengler said that 600 pounds is the weight not the mass of the Twinkie. López-Alt calculates that it would be possible to make a Twinkie fitting Spengler's specifications--provided that it was placed in low gravity:

In order for that Twinkie to weigh 600 pounds, you'd have to blast it off on a rocket (shoring it up so it can withstand those G-forces, of course), fly it past the stratosphere, watch those meteoroids ignite into burning meteors as it whizzes through the mesosphere, wave at the astronauts aboard the International Space Station at 400 kilometers, photobomb the Hubble Space Telescope at 600 kilometers, disrupt armies and Uber drivers all over the world as you smash through GPS satellites at 20,000 kilometers, then leave them all in the dust and set the cruise control as you coast the rest of the way, pulling off that interplanetary superhighway when you're almost a quarter of the way to the moon.

Rarely Seen Photos From The Woodstock Music & Art Fair

It's hard to believe the Woodstock Music & Art Fair happened nearly 50 years ago considering its influence can still be seen at outdoor music festivals like Bonnaroo, Coachella and Lollapalooza.

Woodstock showed the live music loving world that hundreds of thousands of people could gather at an outdoor music festival without food, water or proper bathroom facilities and survive to tell the tale.

But it also taught concert promoters what not to do, and even though Woodstock 1999 was a total disaster it would have been far worse without the lessons taught by Woodstock '69.

These rarely seen photos taken by LIFE photographer John Dominis reveal those three days of madness in glorious color, shedding some light on all the other stuff that was going on while the flower children danced on sunshine.

Man Wanted by Police Follows Pokémon GO Straight into Police Station

(Go Trainer Go t-shirt on sale at the NeatoShop)

Police in Milford, Michigan were hunting for a man. The man in question was hunting for Pokémon. The two missions brought them together because the local police station was a Pokémon GO gym. The Detroit Free Press reports:

“A couple of our officers looked out the window and saw him standing out by the flagpole,” said Police Chief Tom Lindberg, noting after numerous run-ins, police recognized the individual immediately and went out to greet – and arrest – the man.

Lindberg said he wasn’t sure the man even realized where he was headed; the location-based mobile game uses GPS to guide users as they explore real life surroundings in search of virtual images, requiring users to look at their phone while not paying attention to surroundings.

“When I first learned about this game, I was very concerned it was taking young adults into places they shouldn’t necessarily be – and could get hurt, if they’re not paying attention to what’s going on around them,” Lindberg said. “But I never thought someone with a warrant would be so driven by the game that they’d walk right up to the police station.”

The Simplest And Most Effective Ways To Climb A Rope

I'm not sure whether kids are still forced to climb ropes in gym class these days but back when I was a youngster the rope climb was one of the most dreaded activities in the gymnasium.

There were always a couple of cocky kids who could climb the rope like nobody's business while the rest of us struggled to get off the ground.

Turns out we just needed to learn a few tricks involving our feet and we would have been able to climb that rope like a champ too!

Parkour master Ryan Ford demonstrates the easiest way to climb a rope (the leg-wrap technique) as well as a more advanced technique (fast rope) and a few exercises to get your upper body in shape for the climb.
