I Am Going To Throw My Christmas Tree Into The Ocean

There are no hard and fast rules regarding when it's appropriate to dispose of your Christmas tree and when it's too late, so our trees often end up hanging around our homes well into January. 

Some people figure out a mischievous way to dispose of their tree, others toss it to the curb and hope somebody hauls it away.

But nobody tosses their Christmas tree into the ocean, or rather, nobody should toss their tree into the ocean, because it's a dumb idea.

We Work Hard For The Money

(Comic Via Rhymes With Orange)

Some people spend money like it grows on a tree in their front yard, while others scrimp and save every dime so they can have that nest egg waiting for them when they finally decide to shell out some cash.

(Comic via Sarah Andersen)

But no matter how you are with your money there comes a time when you have to make a difficult monetary decision and weigh your hourly wages against the true value of an item you want to buy.

(Comic via Toothpaste For Dinner)

That's why people have such a love-hate relationship with work and the concept of a paycheck, because we feel like we're spending 40+ hours a week at work and still don't have any money to burn.

(Comic via Books Of Adam)

And once your brain is stuck on saving money for bills, retirement and other unfun things those glory days of frivolous spending are over, that is, until the new (insert product name here) comes out!

This Kitchen Tool Turns Radishes Into Mario Power-Up Mushrooms

Mario eats mushrooms that look way too brightly colored to be safe, and the red and white ones are clearly inspired by fly amanita mushrooms, which can be toxic if not ingested properly. 

But Mario has all the extra lives he could ever need, which make it okay for him to ingest potentially toxic substances, so what are humans with one life left supposed to eat instead of toxic mushrooms? 

How about radishes that are sliced to look just like power up mushrooms from the Marioverse?

This fun kitchen gadget created by Israeli industrial designer Avichai Tadmor is called the Ravanello, and it turns ordinary radishes into fun mushroom shapes in just a few simple steps. 

The Ravanello won't actually imbue radishes with the power-up abilities of a Mario mushroom, nor will it make people who can't stand radishes suddenly change their minds, but it does make some adorable food art!

Company Recalls Boots After Redditor Reveals Soles Leave Swastika Footprints

Nobody in their right mind would want a pair of boots that leave tiny swastika footprints wherever they go, but  the Polar Fox boot company clearly had a very specific customer in mind for their line of military combat boots.

You know, the kind of customer who would proudly describe them as "altright" while shaving their scalps clean before the next rally, basically someone who would get a kick out of leaving swastika footprints everywhere they go.

Redditor FRSHFSHFCKR is not a fan of Nazis, so when he discovered his new work boots left little swastikas behind as he walked he exposed the scandal on Reddit Pics, where Redditors proceeded to go crazy with the Nazi jokes. Seriously, they're really bad, so don't read them unless you have a strong stomach for dark comedy.

Since none of the other boots made by Polar Fox feature a swastika-shaped ridge on each tread it's hard to believe this was a mistake, as the company claimed before they recalled the boots.

There's also the fact that the company shares a name with a WWII German military operation (Unternehmen Polarfuchs, or Operation Arctic Fox). Coincidence? Your guess is as good as mein...

The Architecture Of Fairy Tale Characters

Architecture doesn't really factor into fairy tales much, and even though stories like Hansel & Gretel, the Three Little Pigs and Baba Yaga feature a building as a main part of the tale that's about as architectural as these stories get.

But that didn't stop Barcelona-based architect Federico Babina from imagining what fairy tales would look like as houses, and his imaginative interpretations are bringing a fresh look to the make believe neighborhood.

Federico has turned all kinds of different stuff into real estate properties, from bands to movies to famous artists, but his dreamy series Architale really makes me want to sign the lease!

Free-Spirited Nuns Sledding In Central Park

(Image Link)

Nuns agree to forego many of life's pleasures when they dedicate their lives to the Catholic church, but that seems to make them enjoy simple pleasures even more.

They can't drink, smoke or act promiscuously, so what? Who needs all that sin when you can go sledding in Central Park?

(Image Link)

The nuns featured in these photos taken by @mikefriedman77 and shared by ABC News after the Snowmageddon 2016 look like they're having some "I feel like a kid again" kind of fun.

And couldn't we all use more of that kind of fun in our lives?

Facts You May Not Know About Disney's Adventureland

Disney's Adventureland has been overshadowed by flashier theme park areas like Toon Town or Tomorrowland, but back in the early days of Disneyland it was considered the most exotic and exciting part of the park. 

Adventureland has it all- a boat cruise that takes visitors down the wildest rivers in the world, a Hawaiian-themed show where the birds all sing and the flowers croon, and a thrilling yet bumpy ride starring Indiana Jones.

But Adventureland was really different on paper- the Jungle Cruise didn't have any witty banter, there was supposed to be an Indiana Jones mine cart roller coaster in addition to the Jeep Ride, and the Enchanted Tiki Room was originally supposed to be a restaurant.

(YouTube Link)

The singing plants in the Tiki Room may be fake, but the plants seen on the Jungle Cruise are the real deal- and really beautiful:

Morgan “Bill” Evans, Disneyland’s establishing horticulturist, turned the orange groves of Anaheim into a lush, low-key arboretum that includes a $100,000 palm tree, species of ficus he himself brought into California and even Queen palms native to Brazil that were rescued from the Santa Ana Freeway. The trees have reached up to 70 feet tall, creating a canopy—and plant life that thrives in the shade below—that’s truly reminiscent of its territories.

People Turn Into Creatures From Another World When A Face Is Drawn On Their Back

Some humans seem like they come from another world, and yet their strangeness is hard to define until you see a photo or video that reveals their true face.

These bizarre individuals live among us, and when they're well hidden from prying eyes they like to change back into their original form and let their truly odd looking face out for some air.

Photographer AnaHell figured out how normal humans can infiltrate the ranks of these aliens among us in her series "Secret Friends"- have someone draw a face on your back, bend over as far as you can go, cover your head and put a wig on your waist. 

Now you're ready to rub elbows (shoulders?) with these creatures and see how the secret half live!

What Every Wand In Harry Potter Looks Like

(Image Link)

J.K. Rowling paid far more attention to minor details while writing the Harry Potter series than most children's authors do while creating their world, because they assume kids won't even notice these missing details.

From the type of clothing worn by each character to the significance of each color and animal used to represent the four main houses at Hogwarts to the shape of and material used to make each wand, there is no small detail left unaccounted for in the Harry Potter series. 

The rich details included in the books gave the propmakers who worked on the Harry Potter films a clear idea of what each character's signature wand should look like, and their creations exceeded expectations.

Lucius's Wand might be the most spectacular looking of the bunch, with its shiny silver snake pommel, but the fun details included in Slughorn's Wand and the simplistic elegance of Luna's Wand give it a run for its money.

But the most famous of all is Dumbledore's Wand (aka the Elder Wand), which was crafted out of elder wood with a Thestral tail-hair core.

It has the fantastic look fantasy fans expect from a magic wand, with the pedigree and firepower to prove it wasn't made to be all style and no substance.

Inside The German Museum Full Of Perfectly Preserved Corpses

If you ever consider visiting the Plastinarium in Guben you'd better make sure you have the stomach to handle what you'll see inside, because the Plastinarium is home to over 16,000 perfectly preserved corpses.

Have you ever heard of the traveling exhibition Body Worlds?

That's the Plastinarium's handiwork, and they've perfected the plastination process developed by anatomist Gunther von Hagens in 1977 to the point where the corpses are effectively preserved forever: 

In a vacuum chamber, silicone and other polyurethane polymers are injected in lifeless corpses, preventing the natural process of withering decay. The skinless corpses have been used in medical schools across the globe, enabling future anatomists to understand how diseases affect the body. Each body takes about 1500 hours to plastinate and color to give a life-like appearance to cadavers.

Gunther gave control of the Plastinarium over to his son Rurik after being diagnosed with Parkinson's disease, and despite a few lean years the Plastinarium has had no shortage of visitors...or donated bodies.

People are very interested in seeing the 40 different scientists employed by the Plastinarium dissect, embalm and plastinate the donated bodies piece by piece, the human body deconstructed right before their eyes.

This interest is also inspiring more people than ever before to donate their body to the plastination process because, as Rurik explains:

“They want to do something useful with their bodies, after they’re deceased, instead of being eaten by the worms.”

Awful Sounding Sandwiches From TV Shows Built And Tested

TV shows are always coming up with crazy food inventions no person would ever eat in real life, or at least wouldn't have eaten before the internet turned making and eating food monstrosities into a great blog post.

The Tang-wich and Toothpaste Sandwich from Married With Children, the Take Me Out To The Burger burger from Bob's Burgers, and the classic Super Shaggy Sandwich from Scooby Doo all seem too ridiculous to make and eat in real life.

But Cracked's Loryn Stone proved she has an appetite for ridiculousness when she made these sandwiches, along with the Twinkie Wiener Sandwich from UHF and the El Burdigato Supreme from Teen Titans GO!, then taste tested every one of them.

The results were surprising with some (Loryn loved the Take Me Out To The Burger burger with Cracker Jack and peanuts) and not surprising at all with others (The Super Shaggy has sardines, marshmallows and fudge in it, so Loryn naturally found it to be inedible).

And in the end Loryn sacrificed her stomach to show us why these sandwiches don't belong in the real world.

A Child's Imagination Can Really Sting

Parents should always encourage kids to use their imaginations, and they can help foster a child's imagination by providing them with props and costumes so the kid can really get into the role.

But as this comic from Jim Benton shows parents should also protect their vital bits when a kid's imagination is in full swing, because poster tube lightsabers really sting!

An Interesting Strategy For Efficiently Visiting Museums

Efficiency isn't a priority for most museum visitors, but sometimes you're on a really tight schedule yet still want to see all the museum has to offer, so it becomes important to view the exhibits efficiently.

Luckily, Nick Gray of Museum Hacks has come up with a clever and ultra-efficient way to visit a museum, keep walking and still take in all the exhibits- and it all starts when you grab a map.

(YouTube Link)

Nick's method in a nutshell- grab a map, then keep walking through the entire museum without stopping to read text on first lap.

Take a break and plan your strategy for re-entry, go back in and explore the exhibits at your own pace, spending time on the exhibits you care to learn more about, and you've now seen it all- twice!

The Iconic Seinfeld Theme Song Was Totally Improvised

The Seinfeld theme song is like no other TV theme song, with a funky synth bass sound that set it apart from the rest of the poppy-singy 90s theme songs.

It also succeeds in getting stuck in your head for days, if not weeks, at a time, which either makes you want to watch more or never watch the show again, depending on how you feel about the theme.

(Image Link)

But love it or hate it the Seinfeld theme song is an iconic part of TV history and a major highlight in composer Jonathan Wolff's career- which was completely improvised.

(YouTube Link)

This video by Great Big Story discusses the origin of the Seinfeld theme song and the man behind Seinfeld's iconic sound, Jonathan Wolff. He's even got the jacket to prove it!

The 5 Types Of Romantic Comedy Posters

Romantic comedies are (arguably) the most formulaic of all movies, and studios use that rom-com formula to make a bunch of money with very little effort.

Many fans enjoy the predictable nature of rom-coms, and will actually get upset if a film strays too far from the norm, so it's no wonder filmmakers don't even try to do anything different with the genre.

In fact, romantic comedies are kept predictable right down to their poster layouts, of which there are exactly around five types.

There's the Back to Back, the Two Guys One Girl, the Pick-Me-Up, the Men Are Inept and the Well, Here's Everyone!!, five poster types used to advertise the less than five types of romantic comedy plots.

The list is missing one overused type of rom-com poster- the Close-Up of Guy and Girl Making "Funny" Faces, a true classic!

Nifty Household Uses For Chalkboard Paint

Drawing on stuff around the house can be fun, but as most kids discover when they get in trouble for drawing on the walls ink is extremely hard to wipe off, unlike chalk off a chalkboard.

That's why people who want to write on stuff like dressers, pitchers, serving trays, crockpots or staircases need to grab a can of chalkboard paint and turn those surfaces into something to chalk about.

And if you're really dedicated to adding chalkable surfaces to your home you can turn an entire wall into a can't miss chalkboard calendar.

Too big of a space commitment? Why not turn the side of your file cabinet into a chalkboard instead?

Now you've got a place to write all those important notes in the place where you need it most.

Adopted Pit Bull And Two Guinea Pigs Are Best Friends

According to the media pit bulls are savage and vicious killers who have no problem sinking their teeth into innocent children and animals whenever they get the chance.

But according to these two tiny guinea pigs pit bulls are straight up lovers, and make for great cuddle buddies.

When Kristy Gamayo adopted Moki the pit bull she was told to keep him away from her little guinea pigs Frida and Pandora, but the three unlikely friends immediately began bonding and have since become best friends:

'The piggies are always crawling up to Moki - smelling her - and Moki in return licks them as she lies down with them.

'To this day, Moki and the piggies cuddle together and Moki likes to give them kisses.'

Now Kristy has set up an Instagram account @piggiesandpitty so people around the world can bask in the glory of their crazy critter love!

Artist Recreates Items Most Often Stolen From UK Stores In Felt

Which items do you think are most often stolen from stores in the UK?

If you guessed DVDs, electronics or smartphones you're wrong, because the things thieves like to steal from stores in the UK tend to be edible.

Bacon, pints of liquor, cheese, champagne and nicotine gum are among the top choices for thieves in the UK, and these items are also the top choice for artist Lucy Sparrow to recreate as felt plushies.

Lucy created a basket full of pilfered goods for her Shoplifting project, which was shown at the Lawrence Alkin Gallery in London last November, and her soft sculpture renditions of these stolen items are priceless.

Hopefully Lucy's plush goods were well guarded because they're so cute I wanna steal 'em all!

These Two Google Home Units Have Been Arguing For Days

Companies like Amazon, Apple and Google would love to put one of their AI assistant units in every home, preferably with the owner's credit card info on file and one word payment enabled.

But they still have a lot of bugs to work out before those little voices in the speaker are of any actual use to people as a whole, and until then AI assistants will be seen largely as a source of entertainment.

(YouTube Link)

Recently two Google Home units named Vladamir and Estragon have been arguing for all the world to see via their Twitch stream @seebotschat, and the argument has gone on for days.

If you're wondering what an argument between two AI assistants sounds like it's pretty much as vapid, ridiculous and nonsensical as you'd imagine

(Image Link)

With some strange twists and unexpectedly dark turns

(Image Link)

And the occasional flights of bot fancy.

Korean Artist Creates Death Themed Love Comics To Cope With Her Depression

Drawing pictures of a skeleton hanging out with a sad girl may not seem like a great way to battle depression, but it's better to work out your issues through your art rather than letting them fester.

And that's why Korean illustrator and fashion designer Haenuli Shin copes with her depression by creating comics starring a skeleton and a(n often naked) girl, who may or may not represent Haenuli herself.

Haenuli's comics are inspired by a painting in the Musee d'Orsay, Paris by Marianne Stoke called "Young Girl and the Angel of Death", and her take on the morbid themes of death and depression is simply refreshing.

Why Fantasy Football Is Just Like Playing Pokemon

I'm not an active Pokemon hunter by any means, but it still irks me when people talk trash about geeky pursuits then proceed to obsess over something equally geeky yet hidden behind a veil of normalcy, like fantasy football.

The similarities between the two seem pretty obvious- both games involve an ever changing cast of characters, which you use to battle against your friends while hoping they don't suffer from a status ailment.

Both games are boring as hell to hear about when you're not a player, and those who are obsessed with the game let it bring out the worst in them even though the game itself is a waste of time.

The only thing this comic by Nathan Yaffe left out is the fact that you can win cash playing fantasy football, but it never seems to be enough to justify all the time and effort that goes into playing the game!

Try Guy Keith Lets Google Search Decide What To Do For A Day

I wouldn't suggest letting Siri or Cortana or any other annoying AI assistant suggest places for you to eat or drink while you're out on the town, because they're liable to suggest places to go based on sponsored content.

Instead, you should do like Try Guy Keith and go Google Search if you're looking to let an app control your life for a day...oh wait, they use sponsored content too, don't they?

Well, Keith had pretty good luck trusting Google Search to tell him what to eat, drink and do nearby (within a mile of his location, Santa Monica), and he even made a new friend from the Valley!

(YouTube Link)

Keith then headed Downtown, met a new buddy and went to brunch, a bar and a Lakers game at the Staples Center, because they were livin' that Google sponsored life.

(YouTube Link)

I guess the moral of the story is if you run in to Try Guy Keith and he tries to make friends with you take him up on his offer, because you're in for a delicious adventure!

This Space Age Cat Backpack Lets Your Kitty Come With You Wherever You Go

Many cat owners wish they could take their kitty with them wherever they go, so felines and humans can explore the world together like true friends, but cats usually don't dig strutting around town on a leash.

So what's the alternative?

This kooky looking cat carrier backpack called the U-Pet has earned rave reviews from feline fanciers who felt bad that their indoor cats were stuck indoors day in and day out.

Now their kitties can explore the world like little astronauts while hanging around in this space age backpack, which features a viewing dome and a bunch of air vents on the front and side so kitty doesn't suffocate.

The U-Pet looks like great fun for humans to wear, but judging by the photos cats are not impressed by this backpack-shaped kitty pod.

In fact, a few of those angry kittehs look like they would have preferred to stay home!

Home Alone With Blood

Home Alone is a family film, so director Chris Columbus and writer John Hughes wisely chose to keep the film free of any blood and gore, even though some of those traps look like they really put a hurting on the robbers.

(YouTube Link)

Fans have speculated about what the robbers would actually look like if they'd been hit in the face with a steel pipe or beaned with a brick, so animator BitMassive added the gore effects and created Home Alone With Blood.

(YouTube Link)

So far BitMassive has added bloody effects to four scenes from Home Alone 1 and 2, but he could run with this premise forever if you consider how many movies contain slapstick violence in need of a gory makeover.

The Aghast Guinea Pig Stars In A Photoshop Battle

(Image Link)

Guinea pigs are a humble species, so they don't like to wear theatrical costumes or draw too much attention to themselves, but every guinea pig respects a good facial reaction.

It's the way they show off their acting skills without making a scene, and their faces say loud and clear what no oink ever could.

(Image Link)

When humans spot a guinea pig making a spectacularly emotive face they want to put a costume on that cavy and see what they would look like as, say, Sherlock Holmes.

(Image Link)

Since guinea pig society forbids such showy displays of pomposity humans have to settle for Photoshopped pics of guinea pigs dressed as pop culture characters, which is actually an offer we can't refuse.

(Image Link)

Redditor i_love_applebees started a Photoshop battle starring a bald, aghast looking guinea pig and the crowds went wild, applauding the effort that went in to transforming his expression into a work of art.

Guy Makes Sweaters Based On Locations To Wear While Visiting Those Locations

It's a good idea to dress for every occasion, so you're comfortable whether you're going out to dinner with the fam or traveling to far off destinations to do some epic level sightseeing.

But there's one garment that works for virtually every occasion, and comfort is its middle name- the sweater.

You can wear a sweater to dinner, a show and while visiting Stonehenge and you'll be comfy the entire time, which is why sweaters are Sam Barsky's outerwear of choice.

Sam dresses for every occasion by making a sweater with graphics based on the location he's about to visit then heads out, all warm and comfy and ready to pose for some photos.

He shares his creations via his Artistic Knitting of Sam Barsky Facebook page, where you can see a sampling of the over 100 different pictorial sweaters Sam has created, including this refreshingly exotic sweater.

The Quick Spruce Up

Leaving the house without sprucing myself up a bit makes me feel like a foul creature among cleaner and less disgusting looking humans who should avoid contact with me at all costs.

But at least I don't have to throw on some boring old monkey suit before I can be seen in public, imagine what a pain in the neck it must be for those diehard suit and tie guys.

Thanks, cartoonist Jim Benton, for reminding me how stupid I look every time I wear a tie, and how fabulous I look when I wear lipstick!

This Dad Proves It's Hip To Be Square

When people are proud of something they've built they like to share pics of it via social media, so they can show off their creation and have everyone "like" it or leave a comment.

Sometimes that pride is unjustified, and the pics elicit pity from their social media network, but this dad's pride for his just plain perfect cube is justified and utterly adorable.

(Image Link)

Shaun Moriarty's dad Tom wasn't trying to strut his awesome cube all over the internet, he just wanted to share pics of it with his family iMessage group starting with this puzzling pic and "quick quiz":

But Shaun really wanted to share his dad's cubic pride with his social network, and because of his share the story went viral, which thrilled Tom after all:

So what is Tom's square deal? He's a photographer who wants to use the cube to show lens distortion at different focal lengths.

Ghost Shark Filmed Alive In The Ocean For The First Time

They're strange looking relatives of sharks and rays, they're elusive and live 2600 meters or more below the surface, and they have retractable sex organs on their foreheads.

They're Chimaeras, or ghost sharks or pointy-nosed blue ratfish, and they've never been captured on video before 2016, when a remotely operated vehicle deployed by the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute caught this swim-by on camera.

(YouTube Link)

Chimaeras are normally thought to inhabit the waters around New Zealand and Australia, but the remote vehicle captured the Chimaera swimming in the Northern Hemisphere, which researchers found interesting.

What you might find interesting are these strange physical traits of the Ghost Sharks, via National Geographic:

Unlike those more well-known sharks, chimaeras don’t have rows of ragged teeth, but instead munch up their prey—mollusks, worms, and other bottom-dwellers—with mineralized tooth plates.

A pattern of open channels on their heads and faces, called lateral line canals, contain sensory cells that sense movement in the water and help the ghost sharks locate lunch.

And perhaps most fascinating, male chimaeras sport retractable sex organs on their foreheads.
