Americans Taste Asian Delicacies

YouTube Link

As a kid, I looked forward to going with my family once a week to eat at a Chinese restaurant in our town. Because (Americanized) Chinese food was my father's favorite, I grew up eating potstickers, egg rolls, crab rangoon, garlic chicken and similar popular fare.

My family was invited to the Chinese restaurant manager's wedding. My sister and I were thrilled; in addition to experiencing a traditional Chinese wedding, we looked forward to the delicious foods at the reception. We were quietly stunned when dishes the likes of which we had never conceived appeared one after the other. Fish with their eyes and faces still attached. Strange cuts of meat. Food that quivered like Jell-O. Because we were just dumb kids as well as picky eaters, we left hungry. Our faces must have looked like those of the people in this video as Asian delicacies are set in front of them. I wonder if they went out to dinner after their taste tests? Via Unique Daily.

Popcorn Lamp

iDLights took two old plastic popcorn bins (like this one) and turned them into a cute lamp. There's a 15 watt bulb in the bottom and a 9 watt bulb in the top. With its warm light and appropriate theme, the lamp would be perfect for a home theater.

The Most Bizarre Ad You'll See All Week


(Video Link)

Genki Sudo's techno musical group World Order is noted for its videos of Japanese men in business suits moving in lockstep, often out of sync with the world around them. The visual impact of the precision movement is stunning.

World Order brings their skills and looks to this odd commercial for Toyota. The suited men drive into a jungle and experience a series of unexpected adventures. How buying a Toyota is a logical consequence of them is unclear, but the effect gets eyeballs on the screen, which is sufficient.

Why Do Our Hair and Eye Colors Change?

YouTube Link

Have you ever had an unexpected change in your own eye or hair color? Have you ever wished your hair or eye color would change? Do you have a preference for particular colors in your mate? (If so, hopefully that's not a dealbreaker.)

My eyes are so dark they are almost black, and I like it that way. But I've always been fascinated by people with those electric blue or green eyes. In this video, DNews explains the science behind hair and eye color changes. Via Unique Daily.

Pro Tip for Criminals: Don't Try to Rob a Professional Wrestler


(Photo: AP)

Pictured above is Daniel Bryan, a former WWE Heavyweight Champion. He was the winner of Wrestlemania XXX this past April. So he's a big, strong guy who knows how to throw his weight around--and someone else's too.

Bryan lives with his wife in Pheonix, Arizona. On Friday, for the second time, someone broke into his home. This time, he was present to deal with the culprit. He chased the suspect 400 feet before taking him down with his special skills:

He said he chased Sosa about 400 feet before grabbing him and shouting some “bad words.” And he said he used a rear naked choke hold to subdue him, rather than his trademark “Yes!” lock.

“He was very, very tired and it literally took zero effort to take him down,” Bryan told a news conference at police headquarters, seated next to his wife with the dog in her lap.

6-Year Old Limbo Skates under 39 Cars

When he was 3 years old, Gagan Satish's parents gave him a pair of roller skates. He showed remarkable proficiency with them. They approached a professional skating trainer and asked for his help. Soon Gagan was mastering the art of limbo skating. That's skating very low to the ground.

Gagan can split so far that he can skate while rising no higher than 7 inches off the ground. Recently, Gagan, now 6 years old, tried to break a Guinness World Record for limbo skating under cars. He skated under 39 cars for a total of about 230 feet in 29.8 seconds!

Guinness has yet to confirm his new record, but it appears to break the current record of 158 feet.

Dog Born without Legs Gets New Ones Made from Toys

Turbo is a Chihuahua puppy who was born without front legs. His owners brought him to a veterinary office in Indianapolis, Indiana when he was a month old. They had tried to care for him, but it was proving impossible for Turbo to feed with his littermates. The owners didn't want euthanize him, so they handed him over to the clinic.

The staff at The Downtown Veterinarian has been caring for him ever since. Since a dog can't be fitted for a wheeled cart until he's at least 6 months old, the staff has been improvising. They've taken toys apart and used them to make substitute legs. His first set was originally from a Fisher Price helicopter. The staff is making new carts for Turbo as he grows.

Deer Fill the Street in a Japanese Town

(Photo: @sinnonono)

About 1,000 deer live in the roughly 1,200 acres that constitute Nara Park in Nara, Japan. The deer are wild, but used to humans. In fact, they're known to bow respectfully to visitors and walk across crosswalks only when permitted.

But in a quiet show of force, many of them have left the park and begun camping out on a sidewalk and street in the town. Some are going so far as to lie down in the road and impede vehicular traffic.

The rising has begun. The Day of the Deer is at hand.

Human Error

Human Error is a fascinating ongoing image series by Victoria Siemer, a graphic designer in Brooklyn also known as Witchoria. Each image takes the form of a Polaroid snapshot--a memory--of emotional pain and turmoil. Witchoria presents these moments as computer hardware and software errors. It's a narrative of broken love as the user finds and loses trust and experiences aging and anxiety.

Ping Pong Table Shaped Like Easter Island

Do you have $3,995.95? Now discounted from an original price of $12,000 is this one-of-a-kind ping pong table by artist Cyprien Chabert. It's shaped like Rapa Nui, the south Pacific isle also known as Easter Island. You know--the one with the giant stone statues. It's a commentary on the birdman ritual of the aboriginal inhabitants and the island's ecological history. It's for sale at Anthropologie, which comments:

Artist Cyprien Chabert is haunted by the idea of lost paradise – forgotten and fantasized about. He recreates these worlds through his work, like this show-stopping table, carved from an erstwhile ping pong table. Chabert was inspired by the Polynesian island of Rapa Nui, or Easter Island, and its birdman ritual, an annual event in which competitors would swim through shark-infested waters to a nearby islet to collect the season¿s first eggs of the Sooty Tern and return it to their sponsor on the island. The winner was crowned birdman for one year; the ritual died out in the late 19th century. Chabert uses the exotic symbolism of Easter Island to represent the complex nature of man’s relationship with nature and the ecological challenges faced by modern societies and cultures.

This product description inspired some funny commentary by blogger Nancy French, who writes:

My favorite part of that description is the Anthropologie product description writer’s use of the word “erstwhile.” I’ve had a lot of tough writing assignments, but I’ve never faced a task like that poor guy.  I can only imagine his face when he was assigned this one.

“We’re selling a ping pong table,” his boss must’ve said.

Great! the writer may have thought.  A retro addition to any family room!

“Well, you can’t actually use it, because it was created to complex nature of man’s relationship with nature and the ecological challenges faced by modern societies and cultures.”

Blank look.

“Say something about sharks.  And birdmen.”

“What’s a birdman?”

“You’re missing the point.”

“And the point is…?”

“$15,000..”

I found this table via BuzzFeed, which has included it on a list of 19 ridiculously expensive items for sale at Anthropologie.

Superheroes in the Shower

(Image: Dragonarte)

"Bruce, you stink. You really need to shower."

"I'm not Bruce. I'm The Batman."

"Yes, we know. But you can take off the Batsuit every now and then. And now would be a good time. Because you're starting to smell pretty bad."

"I can't take off the suit. I am The Batman. The suit and cowl are who I am."

"Yes, we know that. And perhaps wild bats smell a bit. But superheroes who want to stay in the Hall of Justice need to smell fresh."

"But I--"

"Dousing yourself with Axe body spray isn't enough!"

Sequined Spider

I should never say never. Because yesterday, I would have sworn up and down that I'd never call a spider a "beautiful creature." But today is a new day, and this beautiful creature is called the sequin (or mirror) spider. This arachnid is a member of the Thwaitesia genus, which is known to have reflective patches that are beautifully iridescent, as seen here in these macro photographs by Nicky Bay. 

Each tiny piece of the mirrored mosaic that is this spider's abdomen changes shape according to the spider's perceived level of threat, which is evident in these photos. The substance that makes for such a shiny surface is crystalline guanine, which is used as an ingredient in shampoo and cosmetics to achieve a look of pearlescent shimmer. Via Bored Panda.

Six-Year-Old Tries To Name Super Smash Bros. Characters, Fails Adorably

Tumblr user Lorenzo was trying to be an awesome big brother when he introduced his six-year-old little sister to the classic video game characters that star in the Super Smash Bros. video game franchise, and then he asked her if she remembered their names.

She got some of the names right, and came close with others like Pakistan (Pac-Man) and Bowler (Bowser), but the ones she tried to make up on the spot are pretty adorable.

To be fair, most of the characters in the game are from well before her time, and she probably hasn't been playing video games for long, but her imaginative new names might be just what these characters need to revitalize their image.

Tapio Mömmö's Unique Take On Superhuman Powers

Finnish artist Tapio Mömmö has a unique vision of what it means to be superhuman, and his characters derive their utilitarian superpowers from the machines that have fused with their bodies.

Through his digital artworks the phrase keeping a cool head takes on a new meaning, and to say that a guy with a boat for a head takes to water like a duck is an understatement.

His characters are heroically tragic, world weary and dressed like average folks, but their mechanical additions make them true survivors, able to overcome whatever obstacles life throws at them.

Punisher Versus Red Hood In Super Power Beat Down

Marvel’s ultimate vigilante The Punisher and DC’s sidekick turned street crusader Red Hood have a lot in common besides their one-man war on crime- they both have a wicked sense of style, they both use guns because they don’t have superpowers, and they're the baddest anti-heroes in their respective comic book universes.

(Video Link)

MachinimaPrime and Bat in the Sun teamed up to bring the battle of the badass vigilantes to life in episode 12 of their Super Power Beat Down web series, which starts with a WonderCon poll to see who fans think will win and ends up really bleak for one of these bad boys.

Musical Illuminated Swing Set: The Tour

Daily Tous Les Jours, a collective of designers from Canada, created this cool swing set, which is now on tour. The set, based on the original 22 Swings project, is illuminated, which creates the spectacular light trails in the photos below. The designers explain their project on their website:

"The interactive installation consists of a series of musical swings. When used all together, the swings compose a musical piece in which certain melodies emerge only through cooperation. It’s a game where from the start you need to adjust to the actions of others.

The Swings allow participants to make music with their entire bodies, to connect to one another and to have a sense of ownership of public space due to the music they create. The result is a giant collective instrument that brings together people of all ages and backgrounds."

Pictured here is the swing set, a project its designers call The Swings: An Exercise in Musical Cooperation, at its visit to the Green Box Arts Festival in Green Mountain Falls, Colorado.

Those interested in learning more about The Swings or bringing the installation to an event in their town can submit their request here. Via Colossal.

Queen Elizabeth Photobombs a Selfie

Glasgow, Scotland is hosting the 2014 Commonwealth Games, which are taking place now. Queen Elizabeth II made a surprise visit to a women's field hockey game between Australia and Malaysia. Australian player Jayde Taylor took a selfie with a teammate. And who slipped into the background? The Queen herself!

Taylor admits that she planned the photo:

“Brooke [Peris] and I planned it so that when she came out the door she would be behind us. And then she came out and smiled at the camera. We were in the right spot at the right time.”

Later, they got to meet the Queen:

“The security guard led us all round and we got to meet her.

“She asked us a bit about the pitch, how we were going and told us to enjoy our time here. She was lovely, really, really lovely.”

-Thanks, Wifey!

Rock Formation in Japan Looks Just Like Godzilla

Utoro is a small port town in Hokkaido, the northern island of Japan. Looking over the harbor are the fearsome Godzilla Rocks, so named for their resemblance to that monster. My question: is Godzilla guarding the town--or waiting for the right moment to crush it?

No Time to Go to the Game? Send a Robot to Take Your Place

If you're a sports fan, you'd probably love to go to the stadium and cheer your favorite team on to victory whenever they play. But you might not have time. That's why one company in South Korea invented the Fanbot. It's a robot that fulfills your duties as a fan. When it's time to cheer, the Fanbot will lift up a lighted sign with an appropriate message.

It's an ingenious concept that should be expanded. Consider the possibilities. If you don't have time to watch that new hit TV show, you can have a robot servant do that for you. Want to go on a date, but can't fit it into your schedule? No time for the family? Just delegate those tasks to the robot so that you can get back to work.

Bunny Sends Email


(Video Link)

Cadbury the rabbit isn't up-to-date on social media, but she can now send email. Instructables member JackANDJude built an electronic trigger that sends an email whenever Cadbury presses the lever. 

She used a CloudBit controller, a roller switch, and a chopstick. It's placed on the outside of the cage to protect the wiring from rabbit teeth (bunnies love to chew on wires).

Cyclist Gets Hit by Car, Flies through the Air, But Somehow Lands on His Feet


(Video Link)

YouTube member CycleJack was pedaling through Romford, Essex, UK on a wet day. He was traveling about 22 MPH. A car cut across his path and he hit the fender. CycleJack flew over the car, head over heels, but landed neatly on his feet. It was an impressive bit of unintentional acrobatics caught on camera.

And it's a good thing that CycleJack was wearing a camera. The driver tried to dispute that she was at fault. The video footage took care of that problem:

Safe to say the video has saved me a lot of hassle and 3 weeks later the cheque has already arrived from the insurance company.

Content warning: CycleJack uses a bit of foul language when the car hits. But who can blame him?
