Five Nights At The Shadow Temple - Link's Scariest Legend Yet


Five Nights At The Shadow Temple by Guiganoide

It should have been the easiest quest of Link's life, but something about the Shadow Temple was spooky, and we're not just talking about its name. Link was forever volunteering for jobs others made mad rupees to complete, and he still hadn't learned that it's a good idea to ask what the job entails before you take it. Still, five nights in a dark and spooky temple for a few heart containers wasn't a bad gig, that is, until the statues started coming to life and stalking Link the guard like a feral predator stalks its prey...

Tell a different kind of video game inspired legend with this Five Nights At Shadow Temple t-shirt by Guiganoide, it's sure to scare up smiles from your fellow Legend of Zelda fanatics!

12-Year Old Girl Accidentally Runs Half Marathon

LeeAdianez Rodriguez signed up for a 5-kilometer race in Rochester, New York. But she arrived at the wrong starting position and ran a course set up for a half marathon.

LeeAdianez realized about halfway through that she must have been in the wrong race, but she decided to finish the race, whatever it was. So instead of running 3.1 miles, she ran 13.1 miles. Her finishing time was 2 hours, 43 minutes, and 31 seconds.

Scientists Stream Netflix Through a Pork Loin


(Photo: Jessica Spengler)

They're made out of meat. And you can send electrical signals through that meat. Prof. Andrew Singer of the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign explains:

“You’re a big bag of salt water, with some bones and some other tissues,” he says. “Communicating in the ocean and communicating in your body are very similar.”

So would it be possible to wirelessly control implanted medical devices, such as pacemakers, by sending signal through your flesh?

Signer and his colleagues conducted experiments to find out. They transmitted signals through pork loin and beef liver. This was so successful that it would be possible to stream video from Netflix through a meat conductor. The New Scientist reports:

The team tested two different types of tissue: a pork loin and beef liver. They suspended the pieces of meat in the water tank and found that the ultrasonic signal passed through both types of meat at speeds of up to 30 megabits a second. That is 1000 times faster than existing implants, which send radio signals through tissue at a maximum of 50 kilobits a second. “You could stream Netflix through the pork loin,” says Singer.

This technology could be useful in order to stream live video from inside the human body for medical diagnostic purposes:

“For high-definition video, this is more than sufficient,” says Akram Alomainy, at Queen Mary University of London in the UK, who was not involved in the research. Alomainy thinks the technology could be particularly useful for wireless endoscopy, in which a person swallows a pill that broadcasts a video feed from inside their digestive tract. At the moment, wireless endoscopy requires a laptop-sized device placed on the outside of your body to pick up the feed. A system that transmitted using ultrasonic waves would be far less cumbersome.

Man Builds House with Hole in the Floor over a Pond So He Can Fish Every Day

Paul Phillips of Skiatook, Oklahoma has built hundreds of houses over his long career. He's long dreamed of a special home of his own: one can fish from whenever he wants.

So Phillips dug a pond, filled it with water, and stocked it with hundreds of fish, mostly catfish and crappie. 

(Images: News 6 Tulsa)

Now he can fish at any time. He doesn't even have to go outside. He can just open the hole that he built into the floor of the living room and drop down a line. You can watch a video of him demonstrating it here.

Would you like to own this house? Phillips is now selling it because he wants a bigger pond.

Line Cooks Share Tips And Tricks Every Home Chef Should Know

Being a line cook may not be the most glamorous job in the kitchen, and they may do most of the work for little glory, but their on-the-job training makes them superhuman cooking machines.

Thrillist asked line cooks across the country to share their tips and tricks with the folks at home and their replies came out just right.

There are basic tips: only flip your steak or burger once while cooking to lock in flavor, always start with the dish that takes the longest to cook, and save time by microwaving potatoes.

And tricks that make life easier: use a ladle to perfectly poach an egg, always boil eggs in salt water so the shells peel easier, and use Tupperware lids to slice multiple cherry tomatoes or grapes in half fast.

Disney Artist Adds Classic Characters To Iconic Japanese Images

On the lake

A photo posted by @johnram27 on Feb 22, 2016 at 1:08pm PST

Nowadays it's really easy to tell the difference between worthwhile Disney themed fan art and the stuff that belongs in the trash bin, and generally that worthwhile or not decision is based on originality.

Shocked

A photo posted by @johnram27 on Feb 24, 2016 at 11:51am PST

We've seen “Disney princesses as...” to death, and enough “Disney animal characters as humans” to fill a people zoo, but I can't recall seeing fan art as cool as the works of Instagram user johnram27 in a long time.

Moonlight Tink #Japan #Disney

A photo posted by @johnram27 on Mar 29, 2016 at 1:57pm PDT

To be fair, johnram27 is a fan and a Disney story artist/theme park designer, so his “fan art” is naturally going to be a cut above the rest.

But his clever placement of classic Disney characters in quintessentially Japanese

 photo giphy-1-1_zps3ne9tw7u.gif

Anyone who is thinking about having a Prince memorial party and celebrating his musical legacy by playing Prince songs all night should know that's the wrong way to go.

Because if you want to celebrate Prince the right way you've gotta party like Prince by playing his party playlist, along with your favorite Prince jams, of course.

Prince sent his ultra funky playlist to the producers of Fox's New Girl before his guest appearance on the show back in 2013, but now that Prince has gone to where all the Purple Rain comes from his playlist belongs to the people:

“City in the Sky,” The Staple Singers
“Country John,” Allen Toussaint
“Fire,” Ohio Players
“Happy House,” Shuggie Otis
“Higher Ground,” Stevie Wonder
“I Was Made to Love Him,” Chaka Khan
“Listen to the Music,” The Isley Brothers
“The Lord is Back,” Eugene McDaniels
“Lost in Music,” Sister Sledge
“The Pinocchio Theory,” Bootsy Collins
“Rubber Duckie,” Bootsy Collins
“Rumpofsteelskin,” Parliament
“Skin Tight,” Ohio Players
“We’re Gettin’ Too Close,” The Soul Children
“Wild and Free,” Curtis Mayfield
“After The Love Has Gone,” Earth, Wind & Fire
“Back in Baby’s Arms,” Allen Toussaint
“Don’t Let Me Be Lonely Tonight,” The Isley Brothers
“Don’t Take My Sunshine,” The Soul Children
“How Could I Let You Get Away,” The Spinners
“I’ll Be Around,” The Spinners
“Push Me Away,” The Jacksons
“Stay With Me,” Shirley Brown
“The Thrill Is Gone,” Aretha Franklin

31 Rolls Of Film From World War II Finally Developed 70 Years Later

There are so many ways a roll of film can get ruined before (and sometimes while) being developed that shooting with film often felt like a gamble, especially when shooting historical moments in time.

So it must take some kind of magical luck or divine intervention for 31 rolls of film to survive World War II in a soldier's bag and then manage to survive another 70 years intact before being developed by The Rescued Film Project.

Rainbow Dash Dalek

He'll not only exterminate you, but exterminate you 20% extra.

Jeremy Marbler made this amazing costume for his 6-year old daughter. The idea was all hers: a My Little Pony Dalek. It has movable wings and weapons. There's even a light and a fan inside so that the Dalek inside the Dalek shell feels comfortable.

Marbler plans to hook up lights, but I'd advise againt overpowering it. With wings, it can already defeat stairs. We don't need more dangerous Daleks.

What Is It Like to Have Your Period in Space?

(Photo of Sally Ride by NASA)

In the early days of spaceflight, doctors suspected that in microgravity, menstrual blood wouldn't flow out of the vagina, but remain inside and lead to infections.

But the experiences of more than 50 women who have been to space prove that assumption completely untrue. The New York Times quotes astronaut Dr. Rhea Seddon:

In a NASA oral history, Dr. Rhea Seddon, an astronaut who flew on three space shuttle missions in the 1980s and 1990s, said, “I’m not totally sure who had the first period in space, but they came back and said, ‘Period in space, just like period on the ground. Don’t worry about it.’”

There are, however, logistical difficulties with cleanliness, the management of menstrual blood, and the physical task of changing tampons in microgravity:

“The waste disposal systems onboard the U.S. side of the International Space Station that reclaim water from urine were not designed to handle menstrual blood, thus idealizing the minimization of breakthrough bleeding during menstrual suppression,” write the authors, whose review included discussions with the astronauts Dr. Ellen Baker and Serena Aunon, among others. Also, “the practicalities of personal hygiene while menstruating during spaceflight could be challenging, e.g., limited wash water supply or the task of changing hygiene products in microgravity.”

This Start-Up Wants to Replace Your Address with 3 Random Words


(Photo: Nick Webb)

Imagine your address as not, say, 750 Bel Air Road, Bel Air, California, but instead block.horse.happy.

It could be if the founders of the app what3words are successful. Their system divides the entire world into 57 trillion 9-square meter areas. It assigns 3 random words to each section. The sequences are unique for all 57 trillion sections. April Joyner describes it at The Week:

An algorithm generates each three-word phrase. It filters out profanity, avoids homophones to reduce the chances for mistakes when an address is spoken (hear vs. here), and safeguards for slip-ups with singular and plural words. If you accidentally type engine.door.cubs instead of engine.doors.cubs, you'll get a location halfway around the world — your mistake should be obvious.

what3words co-founder Chris Sheldrick says that the system is already in use:

It's key that the three-word phrases are easy to memorize, because many of the people who are served by what3words' system don't have a smartphone to look them up. Instead, Sheldrick says, once they've been given their address by an aid worker, or a neighbor who has a smartphone on hand, they can simply make note of the phrase for future reference. He gives the example of Rocinha, a slum in Rio de Janeiro, where residents are beginning to use what3words as an alternate address system to receive mail.

What Men and Women Want from Marriage, 1939 vs. 2008

What's really important for women to look for when searching for a man to marry? The most popular and growing characteristics are mutual attraction, dependable character, and maturity. 

Chastity used to be important, but that's taken a nosedive since 1939, as did housekeeping skills and neatness.

Max Roser, an economist, recently created a series of charts to illustrate a study published in 2008 about what men and women look for in a spouses, and how these values have changed over time. It's explored in depth at the Washington Post.

We've looked at what women want. Let's check in with the men. The above chart shows that men increasingly search for mutual attraction. There were also sharp increases in the importance of good looks and sociability.

The importance of chastity plummeted over the intervening 69 years. Emotional stability, though, is still very important.

Do any of the results surprise you?

"My Substitute for LSD Was Indian Food"


(Photos: Iain Cameron and Michael Lionstar/The University of the Arts)

Camille Paglia is a professor of the humanities at The University of the Arts in Philadelphia and a leading public intellectual.

Paglia was recently interviewed by Tyler Cowen, an economist and polymath. In that conversation, Cowen asked Paglia about a line she had written about her intellectual development during the 1970s. While other people had psychedelic experiences from LSD and other drugs, she was eating Indian food. Specifically, she ate lamb vindaloo to open her mind. She explains to Cowen:

COWEN: You once wrote, I quote, “My substitute for LSD was Indian food,” and by that, you meant lamb vindaloo.

PAGLIA: Yes.

COWEN: You stand by this.

PAGLIA: Yes, I’ve been in a rut on lamb vindaloo.

COWEN: A rut, tell us.

PAGLIA: It’s a horrible rut.

COWEN: It’s not a horrible rut, it may be a rut.

PAGLIA: No, it’s a horrible rut. It’s a 40-year rut. Every time I go to an Indian restaurant, I say “Now, I’m going to try something new.” But, no, I must go back to the lamb vindaloo.

All I know is it’s like an ecstasy for me, the lamb vindaloo.

COWEN: Like De Quincey, tell us, what are the effects of lamb vindaloo?

PAGLIA: What can I say? I attain nirvana.

Good Indian food will do that.

You can read or watch the rest of their conversation here, which includes Paglia's thoughts on the movies Ben-Hur and Star Wars Episode III.

Architectural Concept Art For The Hurricane Proof Homes Of The Future

Every time a major hurricane sweeps through a coastal region people are left homeless, their homes reduced to a pile of rubble by those incredibly strong winds.

This is seen as an inevitable part of life in places where hurricanes are a constant threat , but Spanish designer Dionisio Gonzales thinks there may be a way to prevent destruction by rethinking the structure.

Hopefully Dionisio's designs for the hurricane proof homes of the future will inspire architects and builders to stop accepting destruction and start building homes that can withstand the weather.

The History Of Pizza Told In Eight Slices

Tracing the history of pizza back to its earliest roots is virtually impossible, since ancient people often used bread as a plate and therefore probably ate something similar to the modern pizza.

But when did the pizza pie we know and love come out of the oven, and how did that flat “plate” of dough covered in cheese and toppings become the single most popular food in the world?

(YouTube Link)

The PBS Idea Channel's Mike Rugnetta serves up the sizzling history of the pizza one slice of info at a time, and after your brain eats up all eight slices you'll feel full...of knowledge about the pie that conquered the world!

Drug Users In Pakistan Are Smoking Scorpions To Get High

(Image Link)

It has been proven time and again that strict drug laws lead to people doing whatever kind of strange drug they can get their hands on, typically something concocted in a home lab by an unscrupulous individual.

In fact, outlawing drugs often leads to higher rates of consumption, or in the case of the Middle East finding strange new substances to get high on, like the dried out carcass of a poisonous scorpion.

Drug users in Pakistan and Afghanistan are recreationally smoking scorpions, which causes a hallucinatory high that's stronger than most psychedelic drugs, and the addiction is harder to kick than opium and heroin combined.

Medical experts say the worst part about smoking scorpions is the effect the venom has on the brain, where it can cause permanent delusion, and the nervous system, which is often permanently damaged by the "drug".

Anchovy Alley - Heroes In A Half Shell With A Poor Sense Of Smell


Anchovy Alley by Djkopet

The Ninja Turtles had been patrolling the city so long they started nicknaming locations where they like to hang during their nights out on the town. Their favorite spot was located right behind Krang's Pizza Rocket, a location they dubbed "anchovy alley" because the dumpsters always smelled of dead fish. Even though the boss-creature didn't want Pizza Rocket employees talking to those teenage mutants the workers didn't care- the TMNT were making the city great again, and you've gotta keep heroes well fed, right?

Hang with your favorite mutant ninjas every time you slip on this Anchovy Alley t-shirt by Djkopet, it looks fresher than a sizzling pizza pie and won't smell like fish so long as you wash it once in a while!

Man Drives 870 Miles to Buy His Wife Kentucky Fried Chicken

(Photo: Mike Mozart)

Fifteen years ago, when Mike and Angela Hovak Johnson of Yellowknife, Northwest Territories, Canada got married, they ate food from Kentucky Fried Chicken. Since that time, they've always celebrated their anniversary by eating at KFC.

Then the local Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant shut down.

Mike Johnson didn't see that a a problem. He and his son drove to the nearest KFC in High Level, Alberta, ordered 15 buckets of chicken, then drove back. The trip was 870 miles long. That's a long way, but it's how the couple keeps their relationship fresh and crispy. CBC News reports:

"This year was the most difficult one to plan," said Angela. "But my husband didn't hesitate. He wanted to drive all the way to…

"High Level," said Mike, finishing her sentence. "So during March break, me and my son got up early one morning, drove 700 kilometres, picked up 15 buckets of KFC and drove 700 kilometres back — in one day."

According to Mike, his unusual to-go order got him a bit of a weird look in High Level, Alta.

"When I ordered 15 buckets, they said: 'uh, it might take a little while,'" he said. "I said: 'no problem,' so they cooked it up right away."

Potential New Names for an Elementary School

(Photo via Jenny Pancakes)

Robert E. Lee Elementary School in Austin, Texas is named after the famous Confederate general with that name. As the Confederate States of America was founded for the explicit purpose of preserving slavery, many people think that it is inappropriate to keep Lee Elementary's name. The school board has voted to rename the school and has asked the public for suggestions.

Among the potential new names are Donald J. Trump Elementary, Harper Lee Elementary, and Schoolie McSchoolface--a reference to the British ship that was to be named Boaty McBoatface.
