Nabisco's X-Rated Toy Scandal Of 1971

Nabisco has maintained a reputation as a wholesome and family friendly company for over a century, and in that time they've had very little to worry about in terms of public backlash or scandal.

But there was one time when Nabisco inadvertently bought themselves a scandal- when they purchased the Aurora Company in 1971, makers of horror movie model kits the National Organization for Women felt were obscene:

That May, Nabisco had attempted to diversify by purchasing Aurora Company, the West Hempstead, New York model kit maker best known for their plastic kits of Frankenstein’s monster, the Wolf Man, and other horror film icons. The cheap plastic toys came in pieces and could be glued together and painted.

Unknown to Nabisco, Aurora had recently branched out and begun offering entire model kit dioramas. Instead of a single figure, consumers could buy detailed “sets” for their monsters to interact with. There was a guillotine, a razor-sharp pendulum, and a laboratory; a female protagonist, referred to in the copy as “the Victim,” was scantily-clad and ready to be dismembered, beheaded, or trapped in a spiked cage. Kids could also opt to have Vampirella, the top-heavy villain licensed from Warren Publishing, operate the winch and pulley while her plastic captive was shackled to a table.

Each kit also contained a comic, which instructed builders on how to assemble the torture scenes for maximum enjoyment. A narrator named Dr. Deadly seemed to opine on the appeal of the Victim once she was fully assembled. “Now that you’ve gotten her all together, I think I like the other way. In pieces … yesssss.”

In addition to Fig Newtons, Nabisco realized it had also been peddling tiny torture racks.

Portraits Of The Vibrant Residents Of A Single East Berlin Street From The 1980s

An interesting thing happens when like-minded people move in to the same building or on to the same street and form a symbiotic microcosm- the street or building comes alive with human energy.

This human energy explosion happened on Haight-Ashbury in San Francisco in the 60s, it was happening all over the place in NYC in the 70s, and it happened on a single street in East Berlin during the 80s.

Hufelandstrasse was an island of culture in the Soviet-controlled city, and photographer Harf Zimmermann immediately fell in love with the street and its residents when he moved there in 1981:  

“Everyone seemed to feel connected to the place and responsible for it, to be acting in tacit consensus and always working to save the diversity of their island from the sea of gray for as long as possible,” says Harf Zimmermann.

From the Steidl Books description of Zimmermann's book Hufelandstrasse, 1055 Berlin:

For over a year, Zimmermann photographed almost daily on the street with his large-format camera, patiently asking shop-owners and residents if he could take their picture. Hufelandstrasse was then home to a cross-section of citizens of the German Democratic Republic, as well as many family-run stores and workshops—from bakeries and cobblers, to a pet shop and even an atelier for repairing women’s stockings—an uncanny concentration of private business which had otherwise been fazed out by the communist state.

Illustrations Of Scary Real-Life Sea Monsters

According to reputable scientific sources there are no sea monsters in the sea, there are just a bunch of oversized squid, sharks, orca and the like that occasionally eat people and attack boats.

But those scientists seem to be hiding something, because these incredibly lifelike illustrations by Vladimir Stankovic are full of scary looking creatures that actually live under the sea, like the toothy Wolf Eel.

It's not hard to understand why land lubbers who've never seen such strange creatures would see the critters on Vladimir's prints as monsters, but these prints were created not to terrify but rather to educate:

Illustrator and graphic designer Vladimir Stankovic was commissioned to create a series of illustrations of some of the most bizarre and remarkable sea creatures for the Earth Touch / Smithsonian Channel documentary CRAZY MONSTER: SEA CREATURES.  The illustrations were later animated and used an an interlude before the introduction of each species.

Meet 12-Year-Old Tattoo Artist Ezrah "The Shark" Dormon

You have to be at least eighteen years old to get a tattoo in most places, although in some areas you can be under 18 if you have your parents' permission, but you're never too young to think tattoos look cool.

And even though 12-year-old Ezrah Dormon from Panama City isn't old enough to get a tattoo he has already zapped some ink onto at least 20 different people- and his skills are growing stronger by the day.

Nicknamed "Tiburon" (shark), Ezrah has become the talk of the town while working as an apprentice at his mentor Ali Garcia's tattoo parlor Honolulu, where he helps Ali finish up tats on willing victims.

And even though he's just doing fills for now it's only a matter of time before Tiburon starts tattooing his own artwork on people, although Ezrah says he's going to wait a while before he gets a tattoo of his own.

Here he is practicing his line work on his dad's forearm:

The Pessimist Inside You

You know that dark and broody little pessimist who lives inside you? He or she may seem like a real jerk but they exist to serve a vital function- to save us from ourselves.

More specifically to save us from the optimist inside us who sees joy in every sunrise and hope in every sunset, that guy or gal's sunny disposition is extremely annoying!

But don't worry because, as this comic from Jake Likes Onions shows, the pessimist inside you will take care of that little sunny side problem for you, although you may need to do some mopping...

Map Shows Where You Would End Up If You Dug A Hole Through The Earth

We've always known that silly old myth about digging a hole through the Earth straight to China couldn't possibly be true, especially considering all the Morlocks, dinosaurs and Lava Men living in the center of the Earth.

But if you're determined to dig your way through the world anyway you should first find out where you're going to end up once the digging is done, and here's a hint- you won't end up in China unless you live in South America. 

So are you ready to figure out where you'd end up if you dug a hole straight through the Earth? Then consult this Interactive Antipodes Map created by Romanian IT company Aniotek Solutions and see which antipodal city you'd wind up in.

Unfortunately for me there is no antipodal city for San Diego, so I'd end up in the Indian Ocean near Madagascar, good thing I wasn't planning on digging an impossibly long hole this weekend...

These Badass Trees Refuse To Die

(Image Link)

It only makes sense for plants that live for hundreds of years to figure out ways to survive at all costs, especially when all they really need to survive is water and sunlight, but trees make the art of survival look easy.

(Image Link)

Their resilience and ability to thrive in otherwise inhospitable conditions have inspired people throughout history, but this little tree was apparently inspired by two humans named Paul Simon + Art Garfunkel.

(Image Link)

We must assume trees are going to be alive and thriving on Earth well after mankind has disappeared, because even though humans keep chopping them down trees refuse to lie down and die.

Husband Narrates Wife's Makeup Video, Causing The Internet To Swoon

Most husbands will readily admit they don't know much about makeup, and many tell their wives they don't need makeup by default because that's what they think their wives want to hear.

But women who enjoy wearing makeup want to hear that it looks good on them, and if the wife in question is a beauty vlogger then she wants to hear specifics.

Beauty vlogger Kara of KLN Beauty recruited her husband to provide narration for an unique makeup video that focuses on what he thinks of her makeup, and his sweet and loving responses made the internet swoon. Yes, the entire internet.

How To Make Hikaru Dorodango (Shiny Mud Balls)

Japanese artforms are often deceptively simple, since they involve activities that look like no big deal but actually take years to master, such as bonsai, sumi-e or the art of creating the perfect sushi roll.

Add to that list the art of hikaru dorodango, literally translated as "shiny mud dumpling"- they look like nothing but shiny balls of mud, but creating hikaru dorodango is a challenging yet enriching experience.

(YouTube Link)

This video is part of P2 Photography's series Buck The Cubicle, "featuring people who get out, get dirty and find inspiration in all manner of offbeat occupations."

And here's an instructional video from the Clyde and Avon Valley Landscape Partnership series Make Your Way showing how you can get started making your own hikaru dorodango.

Movie Roles That Were Only Ever Offered To One Actor

Most film productions go through a casting period that can take weeks, if not months, as the producers make sure they hire the right talent for the job by having multiple actors try out for the roles.

This is a pretty normal part of the movie making process, but some filmmakers don't want to deal with the whole casting call at all- because they already know exactly who they want to play the role.

As you'll see in this video by Looper the Hellboy movies were written with Ron Perlman in mind for the lead, and the role of Drax the Destroyer in Guardians Of The Galaxy was only offered to Dave Bautista.

But John Carpenter's casting of Rowdy Roddy Piper in They Live seemed strange to some at the time, and now we can't imagine anyone else kicking ass and chewing bubblegum quite like Rowdy Roddy!

Why Are Wedding Rings Worn On The Left Hand?

Our lack of knowledge about the history of marriage traditions makes sense considering their roots can be traced back to multiple cultures and eras, each one adopting a piece of the ritual to pass down.

Take the tradition of wearing the wedding ring on the left hand for example- this tradition can be traced back to ancient Egypt, but may have become part of the modern marriage tradition thanks to the Romans:

The union between marriage and the now-standard ring placement can be traced back to second-century Egyptians who falsely believed that “a certain most delicate nerve” began in the fourth left finger and stretched directly to the heart, according to the Greek scholar Appian. Centuries later, the Romans came to a similar conclusion. In place of a nerve, they were convinced that a vena amoris—or “lover’s vein”—connected this digit with the blood-pumping organ.

During the Roman engagement process, a well-off suitor who could afford a ring would slip it over his bride-to-be’s fourth finger. Thus, he’d always have a symbolic grip around her lover’s vein. The modern world may have adopted that practice from the Romans.

The Internet Has Fallen In Love With This One-Armed Woman And Her Tinder Profile

It can be tough for an amputee to find love online because most people aren't willing to look past their missing limb(s) to discover the merits of the whole person.

But anybody who gives 21-year-old Lauren Scott from San Diego a chance is in for a real treat- because Lauren is a whole lotta fun even though she can only give you one thumbs up.

Lauren (@DuckFanAccount) lost her arm in a scooter accident one year ago, and since then it has been hard for her to find love even though her Twitter account shows she's both a very capable woman and a cut up.

Man With Heavy Southern Drawl Tries To Speak In Neutral American Accent

It can be hard to shed a heavy Southern accent and speak in a neutral American accent, especially when that drawl has been a part of your speech pattern since you started talking.

A few years back Stephanie Shadrick's husband tried to give it a go while she recorded his struggle to set the drawl aside on video, ultimately proving the accent can be shed but certain words will always give the speaker trouble- like "oil".

Humorous Business Cards For Famous Pop Culture Characters

The more popular the character the less they need to announce their identity, because when a big badass in a shiny black helmet or a walking, talking tree approaches someone they know exactly who they're looking at.

That being said, there is one instance when famous pop culture characters like Groot or Darth Vader would need a business card to give to people- when said character wants to offer their services.

The designers at SmartSign came up with this clever set of business cards for pop culture characters, so characters can spread the word about what they do for a living when they're not starring in their own hit movie. Deadpool the exterminator...sounds legit to me!

Fun Facts About The Love Boat

The Love Boat was an exciting and new concept for a TV show when it debuted in 1977, and the blend of heartfelt drama, lighthearted comedy and an ever changing cast of supporting characters made the show a hit for a decade.

But did you know the show was actually based on a non-fiction book called The Love Boats, written by the first female cruise director for Princess Cruises Jeraldine Saunders?

Jeraldine's tell-all book was turned into three made-for-TV movies before becoming a smash hit weekly show:

ABC tested the waters with three made-for-TV movies acting as pilots: The Love Boat (1976), The Love Boat II (1977), and The New Love Boat (1977). The Love Boat II saw the eventual TV cast appear in early versions of their famous roles, including Bernie Kopell, Ted Lange, and Fred Grandy. And The New Love Boat was basically a pilot for what the finalized series was going to be.

After three TV movies and an overhaul of the cast, The Love Boat was ready to officially set sail on September 24, 1977.

(YouTube Link)

In order to make the show feel authentic every episode was filmed aboard two real cruise ships- the Pacific Princess and Island Princess, with real passengers used as extras:

Real cruises were booked and actual passengers played extras during certain scenes that required a more authentic look. For the actual people on vacation, filming was just an added bonus, as extras would get a raffle ticket at the end of each day they filmed. The cruises known to double as shooting locales would always sell out.

Filming aboard an actual ship wasn’t the norm, though. Like any sitcom, The Love Boat was mostly shot on soundstages that could create the look of a cabin, dining area, or a ship’s hallways.

How Netflix's Daredevil Intro Was Filmed

The intro to the Marvel/Netflix series Daredevil is so bloody cool looking it's the perfect intro for such a great show, but the origin of the intro remains hidden due to licensing restrictions.

What the fine folks at Netflix don't want you to know, as pointed out by comic artist Dragonarte, is that DD was hangin' around with Batman and Spider-Man when the paint came pouring down.

They also don't want you to know that the trio moonlight as painters because their superhero gigs ain't payin' the bills...

Animated Simulation Shows What The Eclipse Will Look Like In Your Zip Code

The total solar eclipse on August 21st is required viewing because there won't be another like it until 2024, but unless you live in a narrow strip of the United States it's only going to be visible as a partial eclipse.

The last time a total eclipse across the entire contiguous United States was back on June 8 1918, so it's not surprising that Americans are getting excited about seeing the eclipse in all its galactic glory.

If you're wondering what to expect then check out this animated simulation created by TIME, which allows you to enter your zip code and see how the eclipse will look in your neck of the woods.

The Origin Of Those Delicious, Gravity-Defying Piescrapers

Piescrapers are the perfect combination of food art and flavor fusion, and the recent wave of piescraper mania has been attributed to one woman- Jessica Leigh Clark-Bojin, founder of Pies Are Awesome.

Jessica came up with the idea for her multi-layered pies after deciding to give up sugar for a year, her craving for desserts leading her to recipes for sugar free fruit pies and a dessert history lesson: 

"In Tudor times and Medieval times, pies used to be really complicated and tall. They were a central feature at all sorts of events," she explained excitedly. "I realized that now, pies just aren't treated the same way as other desserts in terms of pop culture representation and other interesting techniques. I wanted to see if I could do something about that."

The vertical element came into play when she began thinking about the wedding possibilities for these intricate pies.

"A lot of people really want pies at their weddings instead of cake, but they end up going with cakes anyway," she explained. "Because of the low profile of pies, they just don't look as great on the buffet table. So I started thinking, how can I build them up?"

But making a wedding cake-inspired tower of pies was easier said than done:

"It was pretty hilarious, actually," she admitted. "Finally, I hit upon a way to stabilize different tiers using techniques from paper sculpture, another hobby of mine. I realized how to double up certain layers of dough with egg in the middle, allowing me to push these experiments higher and higher."

Illustrator Captures The Happiness Of Living Alone

I've lived with a roommate or significant other my entire adult life so I don't know what it's like to live alone, but according to these illustrations by L.A. based artist Yaoyao Ma Van As the single life can pretty sweet.

And even though the solitary life gets to be a bit lonely at times it seems the freedom, peace and quiet and ability to do things your own way more than make up for an occasional bout of loneliness.

So if you find yourself feeling blue about living alone take a gander at Yaoyao's drawings and remind yourself of all the great things the solitary life has to offer, like reading a book while you eat dinner. Sounds a lot better than awkward small talk about your day while sitting around the dining room table!

Why You Should Carry A Tennis Ball With You When You Fly

Have you ever wondered why some people carry a tennis ball with them when they fly?

If you already know the answer then you're probably one of the few who include a tennis ball in their carry-on luggage, but for those of you who were like me and had no clue here's why:

Ali Gjoz, a surgeon from the London Orthopaedic Clinic shared a few tips with the Daily Star. "Taking a tennis ball or a massager on the plane will help increase circulation," he says. Roll it over your shoulders, lower back, legs, and the bottoms of your feet to help get your blood flowing again.

...Gjoz suggest massaging your legs, starting with the ankles and moving up, to help get the blood moving back toward your heart.

Christine from Goodfullness elaborated on Dr. Gjoz's advice with these tips:

Your ankles can benefit greatly from a few simple tennis ball based exercises. Place the tennis ball beneath your foot and flex the ankle while the ball is rolled back and forth. Once you held each position for a few moments, it is time to switch to the other foot. While you can perform this exercise with your shoes on, you can also ask your flight neighbors if it is all right for you to remove them to get the full effect.

Struggling with poor circulation in your wrists? To get the blood flowing through your fingers and hands, you can grip a tennis ball and apply light pressure. By bending the wrist outwards and inwards, you can ensure a greater level of comfort. While you are seated on the plane, using a tennis ball to increase the circulation in your thighs is also important.

All it takes are a few rolls of the ball in a vertical motion, from the knee and upwards to the thigh. For added relief, repeat the motion on the entirety of the thigh as you continue to apply added pressure. For your legs and calves? Use the same technique as you would for the thigh rolls and apply a gentle amount of pressure to any areas that are in need of some extra attention.

If you would like to remedy any aches and pains in your back and shoulders, find the pain points and knots and roll the tennis ball over them. For a more advanced level of assistance, the ball can be placed between the seat and your back. Just be careful not to hunch over during the process or you will end up exacerbating the problem even further.

Guys Display Their Speed And Agility By Punching A Bear Trap Before It Closes

Macho men like to perform feats of strength so they can show off how manly they are, and they constantly feel the need to prove their physical prowess is over 9000 so they don't drop a rank in their bro pack.

But losing face in front of your macho friends is preferable to losing a hand while trying to do something stupid like punching a bear trap, a lesson which ol' Dieter here learned the hard way.

Breathtaking Self Portraits By Croatian Photographer Isabella Bubola

Portaiture is an art form that seems like it would have its limitations- a limited number of poses and facial expressions, a finite number of filters that don't make the flesh look funky, and few original tales to tell with a portrait.

But Croatian photographer Isabella Bubola's self-portraits prove portraiture is forever, with an infinite number of ways for a photographer to tell a new tale, as she shares a unique view of her world so we can see her in her raw form.

Isabella's hauntingly beautiful self-portraits allow us to get close enough to see the sweat on her brow and the flakes on her dry lips, but the veil of mystery that surrounds her keeps us from hearing her scream.

Pilot's Phone Is Sucked Out Of Plane, Keeps Filming All The Way To The Ground

If you've ever wondered what it would look and feel like to plummet out of a plane without a parachute but you value your life too much to attempt it in person then have I got a video for you!

It was inadvertently shot by Blake Henderson of Westmoreland, Tennessee, who was flying a plane while shooting aerial footage of another plane when the camera was sucked out the window.

Somehow Blake's Samsung Galaxy S5 survived the 1000 foot drop and kept recording the whole time, creating a motion sickness inducing video that'll make your head spin.

Coffee Is An Acquired Taste

Coffee, much like beer and whiskey, tastes like crap the first time it hits your tongue, and just like whiskey it burns on the way down and makes you wonder why you wanted to try that foul beverage in the first place.

But then you start to feel the effects and the attraction to that caustic liquid finally makes sense, and according to this comic from The Awkward Yeti some people fall so deeply in love with coffee they want to marry it.

Personally, I prefer to keep my relationship with coffee strictly friends with benefits...

But Expedia Canada's map of The Literal Translation of Places in Canada & the United States is the most entertaining, informative and shareable map I've seen in a long time.

Who knew Illinois translates to "speaks normally", Nebraska is "flattened water" or that Texas means "friend"? I sure as heck didn't, but now I do!

The Hidden Dangers Of Wearing Flip Flops All The Time

Most SoCal residents feel flip flops are an essential part of a casual wardrobe, but I prefer sneakers or boots and wouldn't be caught dead in flip flops, which makes me an oddball compared to the SoCal norm.

I'm also an oddball because I've never fallen down stairs because my flip flops got stuck on a step, nor have I developed fallen arches, hammertoes or had bacteria eating away at my toes:

A study by the University of Miami’ mobile flip-flop lab found that flip-flops have significantly more bacteria than traditional shoes, especially when worn in public restrooms. Fungal infections and Staphylococcus can make their way into microabrasions or burst blisters in your feet, which would quickly end your beach plans.

And don't even get me started on all the blisters, corns, toenail fungus, bone spurs, plantar fascitis and bunions that can be caused by wearing flip flops too often- that's why I'm proud to be flip flop free!

Why You Shouldn't Leave Your Buddy In Charge Of Shooting The Vacation Pics

Vacation photos are a visual reminder of our adventures abroad and a fun way to share what we saw on our travels with our friends and family, but if you want good pics of your trip you've gotta shoot them yourself.

Now you may be tempted to let a friend do the shooting when you travel abroad with your buddies, but if you're friends with a guy like illustrator James Nathaniel keep the camera to yourself- or you may end up with some really strange vacation photos.

James says he was trying to bring out the group's inner children by enlarging all the heads in their vacation photos from their trip to Southern France:

"I like to make me and my friends into kids by making our heads bigger in photos, one of the most important things about growing up is remembering how and when to act like children,"

When TV Worlds Collided And Fans Got Way Too Excited

Fans are always obsessing about what it would be like if their favorite pop culture characters came together in a TV show crossover episode, but due to licensing restrictions and greed this almost never happens.

Back in the 80s and 90s it was a bit easier for pop culture franchises to come together, so we got to see Sabrina the Teenage Witch on Boy Meets World, Fresh Prince's cousin Hilary paid a visit to Blossom, and Urkel hung out with the Tanners on Full House.

Fans were naturally very excited about these crossover events, and it became a bit of a trend for TV shows to have a crossover event, even if it made no sense.

But do you know which TV crossover event made more sense than any other TV crossover ever?

Watch A Train Plow Straight Through A Semi-Truck Trailer Stuck On The Tracks

It's a scene straight out of an action flick- a semi-truck stuck on the tracks as a train going too fast to stop comes barreling towards it.

We expect certain things to happen when we watch this scenario play out, but as you can see in this video shot in Locust Grove, Georgia, trailers don't explode when they're hit by a train, despite what Hollywood would have us believe.

(YouTube Link)

The truck driver wasn't hurt in the crash and the trailer was full of candy, so in a way it was like a great show and a massive piñata smashing for any kids who happened to be walking by at that moment.
