Nordstrom Is Now Selling The Mom Jeans Of The Future

Moms can wear jeans without making people say "nice mom jeans, ma'am" but nobody, mom or otherwise, can wear these Clear Knee Mom Jeans without becoming the talk of the town.

Are they the dumbest jeans ever made, or are they simply so futuristically fashion forward that our modern minds just aren't ready for them yet? I dunno, ask this gal how she feels about being forced to wear them-

These Topshop Clear Knees Mom Jeans are being sold by Nordstrom for a very fashionable $95, and while they're unlikely to spark a pants window craze they're great for people with pale knees!

Chef Wears Raw Ingredients From His Menu On His Face For Creepy Portraits

Chefs who only serve raw and organic ingredients in their restaurants go out of their way to advertise that fact, turning their fresh food philosophy into a branding element.

They call their eatery something cute like "Organically Yours", put images of fresh fruits, veg and grain on all their advertising and include a long list of things their dishes are free of, such as hormones or gluten.

But chef Robbie Postma is an odd duck, so he skipped all the cheesy name games and went straight for the shock factor, posing for portraits while covered in raw ingredients from his kitchen.

MENU is a deliciously bizarre photo project created by Postma and photographer Robert Harrison, and these photos are so much more than just pics of some guy with food all over his face:

When creating these images, Postma and Harrison stuck to the same principles and values a chef would when creating a menu: paying a lot of attention to the details, the composition, the preparation and of course the ingredients. From cutlery to coffee bean, every component is painstakingly prepared to produce the ultimate effect. And every grain of rice was added by hand, without the aid of digital manipulation. MENU is hand crafted. Just like the best food.

MENU - The craft behind the project. from Tim Arnold on Vimeo.

The Ridiculous Way Epic Cosplay Shots Are Made

Cosplayers have learned how to market themselves on social media, how to fund their art with print sales and crowdfunding, and now they're mastering the art of the superheroic self portrait.

But, much like the characters they portray, those epic self portraits are pure imagination, scenes set up to make the cosplayers appear to be fictional characters come to life.

Budding cosplayers should take note of the ridiculous(ly clever) ways these seemingly epic shots were created, so you can power up your cosplay photo game with a few simple tricks and a little help from your friends.

Guy Sings Star Wars Song To Clear Brooklyn Bridge Bike Lane

Bicyclists who ride around in big city traffic all day tend to get a bit salty, and in New York bikers have no problem cursing you out and telling you why they hate you while they continue to roll along.

So it's refreshing to see an NYC bicyclist doing something other than cursing and yelling at people to get out of his way as he crosses the Brooklyn bridge.

Even more refreshing? This guy's incredible singing voice as he belts out a Star Wars inspired song to get pedestrians out of the bike lane.

Photos Of The Mad Max: Fury Road Cars Before They Were Wrecked

The beautiful wasteland shredding machines featured in Mad Max: Fury Road are custom made (and fully functional) works of automotive art, most of which were wrecked by the time the film was in the can.

But before they ended up in the scrap pile photographer John Platt was given the opportunity to photograph each of the 150 cars used in the production with proper lighting in his studio.

Platt's two part series "Before The Dirt" is an homage to the Angel of Combustion, who was clearly guiding the hands of the blackfingers who built the amazing vehicles who very nearly stole the show from Saint Max.

This House Is In Desperate Need Of A Spring Thaw

People are tired of waiting for the spring thaw, they're done dealing with those winter blues and can't wait to see some green start sprouting up around their house again.

But no matter what the weather's like in their neck of the woods the pics of this house in upstate New York encased in ice is bound to put their winter situation in perspective.

Photographer John Kucko captured these chilling images of a house on the shores of Lake Ontario that became completely encased in ice thanks to the bitterly frigid weather brought in by Storm Stella. Time to trade in the house keys and garage door opener for a flamethrower...

Why Do All Disney Princesses Wear Blue?

Disney princesses have some rather obvious things in common, including their physical beauty, survivor spirit and an uncanny connection to wildlife.

And for some reason they also have the color blue in common, which made designer Christopher Kane wonder "why blue?" as he designed his new Beauty and the Beast inspired collection.

"When you think of every Disney heroine — Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Jasmine — they're all wearing blue! It's a thing. 'Disney Blue."

Leatrice Eiseman of the Pantone Color Institute says it's a way to empower female characters with a color usually associated with males, which we also associate with clear blue sky positivity:

"You're adding a bit of power to the character by giving her the blue." She adds, "It's a very subtle way of saying, 'Yeah, but young women, young girls, can be empowered, too.'"

"It's dependable. It's reliable. It might cloud up, but we know it's there."

POV Video Footage Of Daredevil Failing A Three Story Pool Drop Stunt

(Image Link)

The YouTube daredevils who post stunt videos that make us want to cringe and cheer (chinge?) are taking big risks for their viewers, so they tend to keep their fail vids to themselves.

But thanks to this GoPro footage from YouTube stunt dude 8Booth we get to see what a massive stunt fail looks like from the stuntman's POV, as he falls short during a three story pool drop.

And don't worry- you can't see the mess the concrete pool deck made of his legs.

(YouTube Link)

8Booth incurred over $200k in medical costs thanks to this stunt gone horribly wrong, which he'll now have to chalk off as the price of internet fame.

Haunting Portraits Of People And Plants Becoming Hybrid Bodies

We become nothing more than plant food when we're dead and buried, as roots grow through our flesh and wrap around our bones, but while we're alive we try to avoid letting plant life grow on our bodies.

And yet the fungi keeps growing in our cracks, the mold spores settle in our lungs and the moss begins to grow on our backs if we sit still for too long.

Humans don't like the idea of plants moving in on our fleshen territory, which is why these photos from French artist Cal Redback's "Treeheads" series make our skin crawl.

And yet there's something undeniably alluring about two lifeforms coming together in such an organic way, as Mother Nature's children meld into a new form of natural beauty.

What On Earth Is Going On With This Eyeball?

A woman went to her ophthalmologist complaining her eyes were watery and itchy, and when the doc looked into her eyes they saw this freaky sight- which kinda looks like a worm burrowing beneath the pupil's surface.

But according to this article recently printed in The New England Journal of Medicine the condition is harmless, doesn't affect her vision at all and requires no treatment.

This ridge is called a protruding iris collarette, a rare condition that might be hereditary but is definitely strange looking! Here's more on this odd condition:

The iris collarette marks the thickest region of the iris, and it separates the inner pupillary portion of the eye from the outer ciliary portion. It’s also the part of the eye where the sphincter muscle (no, not that sphincter muscle), and the dilator muscle overlap. Iris collarettes are typically flat, but as seen in this patient, they can sometimes extrude outwards in a distinctive ring-like pattern.

Surprisingly, the woman's symptoms were caused by an allergic reaction, and the protruding iris collarette was nothing more than an "incidental finding".

How To Trap A Self-Driving Car

Millions of self-driving cars will supposedly hit the roads by 2020, but before they can shuttle us about auto manufacturers have to fix all the bugs and exploitable aspects of their cars' software.

Because, as it stands now, self driving cars are easily hacked, rerouted and, as this video by British artist James Bridle shows, trapped by simply drawing a solid line surrounded by dashes on the ground.

Autonomous Trap 001 from stml on Vimeo.

This minimal work of automotive performance art isn't a true test of a self-driving car's ability to think outside the lines, but it raises questions about how easy it will be to trip up an autonomous car's AI. And hopefully these questions will help automakers work out all the kinks, because I'm ready to sit back and let the car do all the driving!

Some Of The Most Outrageous Celebrity Couch Stories From The Graham Norton Show

Graham Norton has that special quality a select few talk show hosts possess- the ability to chat up celebrities and get them to tell him damn near anything.

This special quality is what makes The Graham Norton Show so fun to watch, well, that and Graham's naturally witty charm, which ties in to the whole "people tell him everything" thing.

But sometimes the stuff people share on his show is so shocking and outrageous that even Graham is left at a loss for words, which is no small feat! (NSFW due to language)

Family Leaves Husky Home Alone For Three Hours, Husky Redecorates House

Dogs don't care about home decor, cleanliness or whether they live in a pile of filth, but their humans do- which is why people who want to keep their house clean shouldn't leave their dog home alone for long.

This goes double for breeds like Huskies, who make messes and tear stuff up even when their humans are home, and if you leave a Husky home alone you'll learn this lesson the hard way.

The canine interior designer behind this renovation disaster was left home alone for a mere 3 hours, which was plenty of time for the pooch to find some calligraphy ink and leave his mark all over the house.

He even left a single paw print signature on the comforter as his final gesture of flippancy towards the home owners. I've heard interior designers can be moody but this is ridiculous!

The Worst Things Wolverine Has Ever Done

Wolverine never wanted to be a hero, and he spent far too long doing whatever it takes to survive to sheathe his claws once he put on a costume and joined the X-Men.

So it's no surprise that Wolvie has committed some mighty dark acts during his nearly forty years at Marvel, but seeing some of his worst acts spelled out may make you look at the mighty mutant in a different light.

(YouTube Link)

Looper presents an eye opening look at six times Wolverine proved he's a total savage, starting with the time he drowned his own son and ending with proof that Ultimate Wolverine is even worse than the original!

Mr. Bean Is A Homicidal Maniac In Mean Bean

Mr. Bean always did seem a bit off, what with his solitary lifestyle, his obsession with Teddy the teddy bear and his incessant mumbling, but nobody ever pegged him as a killer.

Now, thanks to this hilarious recut of the Bean movie trailer by John Loberger, I can't help but see Mr. Bean as a total psycho who uses the bumbling fool act as a cover for his bloody deeds.

(YouTube Link)

I watched an episode of Mr. Bean after this video and the deranged killer theory actually holds up! Which makes Teddy an accomplice...

Hushme Lets You Talk On The Phone Privately While Pretending To Be Bane

Don't you hate those people who walk around talking on their phone so loud people a block away can hear their conversation?

These rude people talk loud on purpose, so everyone around them will think they're really cool and super important, and they clearly don't care about keeping their phone conversations private.

But for the rest of us who value privacy and don't crave attention there's Hushme- a strange looking wearable device that gives you total privacy while chatting on your phone in public.

(YouTube Link)

Hushme straps around your neck for maximum comfort and features a variety of masking sounds  to drown out your voice, which are controlled via the Hushme app. In fact, you'll have a much harder time controlling the embarrassment felt while using Hushme in public than the device itself!

Pics Of Teenagers Before And After Their Rebellious Phase

(Image Link)

Rebellion is as normal for teenagers as acne and hormonal rage, and teens can be total terrors while they're in the midst of their "broody" phase.

They naturally don't see it as a phase, but their parents know it usually is and hope the phase will end sooner rather than later.

(Image Link)

But by the time they're in their 20s most people have outgrown that Emo, Punk, Raver, Metalhead or whatever phase they swore was their true face coming to light in their teenage years.

(Image Link)

Which is why it's absolutely delightful to see how these teen rebels look when they're all grown up, and for most of these "pioneers of subculture" the difference is like night and day.

Woman Changes A Homeless Man's Life After Seeing Him On The Same Street Corner For 3 Years

Most people pass by the homeless every day without thinking about who they are, where they're from or how they ended up on the streets.

But Ginger Sprouse of Webster, Texas passed by a homeless man on the same corner every day for three years and constantly wondered who he was and why he was stuck in that spot.

So she pulled up next to him one day and asked him for his story, which broke her heart and made her take action to help a fellow human being.

His name is Victor Hubbard, a 32-year-old man suffering with severe mental illness who was waiting for his mother to return to the street corner she'd abandoned him on three years earlier.

Victor's story touched Ginger and spurred her into action, so she raised nearly $17k for him through GoFundMe, gave him a job at her cooking school Art of the Meal and helped Victor reunite with his uncle and mother.

Articles Of Clothing That Are Named After Places

Most people wear clothes on a daily basis without stopping to consider why their ascot, jersey and tuxedo aren't called a silky scarf, athletic tank top or fancy suit.

But if you're curious they're all named after places where they originated- Ascot is a town outside London where men wore fancy neckties to an annual horserace attended by the Royal Family.

Tuxedos are named after Tuxedo Park in New York, where fancy men began wearing fancy jackets to an elite country club circa 1886.

And jerseys are named after Jersey, the largest of the Channel Islands, where the locals "knitted a close-fitting garment that, by the mid-1850s, was morphing into the jerseys athletes".

But what about the less obviously named Denim, the fabric of our casual lives?

Denim is named after Nîmes, where a twilled wool fabric called serge de Nîmes was manufactured starting in the 17th century. Serge de Nîmes was later shortened to de Nîmes, then Americans  reduced it to "denim" in the 19th century when jeans became popular among the working class.

The Secret Behind Geordi La Forge's Visor

Geordi La Forge was born blind and yet he can see better than anyone else on the Enterprise thanks to his signature visor.

It may look like a hair clip, and clash with everything in his wardrobe, but as this comic by Caldwell Tanner shows Geordi's visor gives him the extraordinary ability to see what his fellow crewmates wish to remain hidden. And Captain Picard has some 'splainin' to do about that tattoo!

Portland Anarchist Road Care Is Here To Repair Those Pesky Potholes

What do the people of Portland, Oregon to do when the local government won't pay for much needed road repair?

They call in Portland Anarchist Road Care and let those masked madmen "illegally" repair potholes around town.

Portland Anarchist Road Care has the tools, the tar and the moxy to do what the city council refuses to do- repair potholes in a timely and efficient manner.

The PARC also has a well written manifesto:

Because we believe in building community solutions to the issues we face, outside of the state.

Because society portrays anarchists as only breaking windows and blocking roads.

Because when faced with anarchism as a political theory, statest often ask "But who will fix the roads."

Because the city of Portland refuses to adequately repair roads in a timely manner.

We are Portland Anarchist Road Care. We believe in community oriented direct action. We believe the state cares more about funding a militarized police force to suppress free speech than caring for and repairing the roads.

The city of Portland has shown gross negligence in its inadequate preventative care through this winter's storms, and through its slow repair of potholes as weather has improved. Daily, this negligence is an active danger to cyclists and causes damage to people's automobiles, and an increased risk of collision and bodily injury.

Portland Anarchist Road Care aims to mobilize crews throughout our city, in our neighborhoods, to patch our streets, build community, and continue to find solutions to community problems outside of the state.

What's Inside A Rattlesnake's Rattle?

Rattlesnakes are one of the most feared group of venemous snakes in the world, but it's not the rattlesnake's fault they meet (and bite) so many people and pets when encountered in the wild.

In fact, they're born with a built-in defense mechanism and warning device that should make people and pets steer clear- the rattle in their tail.

It's terrifying to hear that rattle while you're out enjoying nature, and many animals are innately terrified of the sound, but how do their tails make such a creepy sound?

(YouTube Link)

Daniel and Lincoln from the What's Inside? channel dissected a rattlesnake's tail to see how it rattles, and even though Lincoln was totally grossed out he learned one thing- there ain't no balls in there!

Real Enchanted Roses That Last For Twenty Years Or More

In the tale of Beauty and the Beast the cursed prince must find his true love before the last petal of The Enchanted Rose falls or he'll be stuck in beast mode forever.

Anyone who has brought home a beautiful bouquet and watched it wither can relate to this symbolism, and as much as we'd like those roses to live forever they don't last long.

That is, unless they're the gorgeous blooms being produced by Forever Roses, a luxury flower company selling roses they claim will last for three years without sunlight or water- or "forever" (20+ years) when kept under a glass dome.

Flower Power

Flowers are powerful even though they look like a stiff breeze would uproot them, but when the Hippies started using the slogan "Flower Power" as part of their anti-violence protests flowers began to look weak.

But as you can see in this Mr. Lovenstein comic many flowers are surprisingly pro-violence and anti-pansy, and I don't mean that metaphorically- all plants hate pansies for some reason. And that's one to grow on!

How Weta Workshop Made That Dazzling Thermoptic Suit For Ghost In The Shell

The Ghost In The Shell movie adaptation looks like it's going to be a visual treat for sci-fi fans, but one element of the production stands out more than the rest- Motoko's thermoptic suit.

It's sleek, sexy and, according to WETA Workshop costume artist Flo Foxworthy, most likely the first time a full silicone hero suit has been created for a movie.

Flo literally gave Danica Chan of Tested full access to the suit by letting her slip it on, showing off the hidden features of her marvelously modern feat of costume engineering.
