The Least Threatening Villains From Star Trek

The Star Trek universe is home to some seriously badass villains like the assimilating Borgs, the fierce warrior Klingons and the treacherous Romulans, but for every worthy adversary the Federation faces there are many far less intimidating foes facing Starship crews from the Enterprise and beyond.

In fact, the Star Trek universe is home to some of the most ridiculous villains to ever grace the small screen. Remember those fornicating fuzzballs the Tribbles? Well, they only made this list of The Top 10 Least Threatening Star Trek Villains thanks to a reader comment, but the villains who made the list are no less hoaky, and not much more intimidating, than those terrible Tribbles.

Bioengineer Trains Microbes To Play Classic 80s Video Games

Here’s one of the latest scientific “discovery” stories which will make you shrug and say “okay then science”- scientists have trained microbes to act out classic 80s video games like Pac-Man and Brick Breaker, the microbes desperately seeking a high score so their scientific overlords would be pleased with their performance.

Ingmar Riedel-Kruse, a bioengineer from Stanford, uses electric fields to control the microbes and move them in various directions, adding a single cell pond-dwelling paramecia as an avatar. Here’s how it works:

Changes in an electrical field can cause some species to alter their steering (a behavior called galvanotaxis). The microbes selected for the video games swim toward electricity using cilia that cover their bodies.

Object-detecting software turns the physical setup into a game by locating paramecia as they move around the chamber. Meanwhile, a video overlay enables the organisms to interact with digital images. In the game PAC-mecium, microbes “eat” pellets as they swim past them, and in soccer they “kick” the ball when they come into contact with its cartoon image.

What Led To The Silence Of The Crickets On Kauai?

The silence of the lambs was caused by hungry Hannibal Lecter hosting a dinner party, but what's causing the silence of the crickets on the island of Kauai?

A researcher named Marlene Zuk first noticed the silence of the crickets in 2003, a very noticeable silence compared to when she first started studying the crickets on the island back in 1991, and she knew something was wrong because she continued to see the crickets everywhere despite their vow of silence.

After dissecting a few of the insects she discovered the source of their silence- the male crickets had developed flat wings that didn’t make a sound to avoid being eaten by a parasitic fly.

Here’s more on this interesting evolution to silence:

Zuk’s team discovered that the crickets were targeted by a parasitic fly, whose larvae burrow inside them and devour them alive. The flies finds the crickets by listening out for their songs and they’re so effective that, in the early 90s, they had parasitised a third of the males. In 2002, the cricket population had fallen dramatically, and Zuk thought that they were done for.

But the silent males escaped the attention of the fly. As they bred and spread, they carried the flatwing mutation with them. By 2003, the cricket population had rebounded. And in fewer than 20 generations, they had gone from almost all-singing to almost all-silent. The crickets have become a classic textbook example of rapid evolution.

The Unarius Society - America's Wackiest UFO Cult

(Video Link)

You may not know the name Unarius, but most people who grew up in San Diego are familiar with our friendly neighborhood cult because of their zany UFO themed public access shows, their strange visitor’s center and the fact that they’ve been spreading their word of their "interdimensional science of life" since the 1950s.

They were founded in 1954 by Ernest and Ruth Norman, and they refer to themselves as The Unarius Academy of Science, Unarius being an acronym for Universal Articulate Interdimensional Understanding of Science, and if you think the Heaven's Gate crew were nutty wait 'til you get a load of these guys!

Thankfully theirs is a peaceful tribe, and not suicidal, but their story is rather far out, and writer Richard Metzger and Jello Biafra (of Dead Kennedys fame) traveled down to El Cajon, California to find out more about these kooky UFO lovin' folks back in 1992.

This is their story...(cue the Law & Order theme song)

Karl Lagerfeld Had A Chocolate Statue Made Of His Favorite Model

Karl Lagerfeld has a unique vision of the world, to say the least, and he has often proven himself to be a visionary and trend setter in the world of fashion since he started desiging in the 1950s.

These days he has a lot more similarly “inspired” fashion designers to contend with, and you may think he has softened a bit in his age, but this statue proves that he hasn’t lost one bit of his unique vision.

Lagerfeld commissioned chocolate artist Anya Gallaccio to create a life sized chocolate statue that looks just like his favorite model/muse Baptise Giabiconi, who is wearing nothing but his underwear and a pouty face.

This deliciously tasteless work of chocolate art was created in 2011 and shown in Paris to promote the ice cream brand Magnum, but did this statue scare people away from the brand or make them hungry for more?

This Godzilla Cosplay Totally Crushes The Competition

(Video Link)

The fact that Godzilla has come back yet again proves that, for a giant scaly green dinosaur looking kaiju, he’s got some staying power in the world of pop culture, but with all the awesome cosplay out there where’s the costumed love for Godzilla?

Right here, thanks to this amazingly detailed costume created and worn by Sean Sumagaysay. The suit appears to be made out of hundreds of foam pieces, and it looks absolutely perfect even when he’s waving his tail and stomping around.

You can almost imagine the tiny model cities being crushed beneath his foamy feet, and it seems like the only thing the suit is missing is Godzilla's signature atomic breath, but maybe Sean is saving that for his 2.0 version of the suit!

A Different Kind Of Fish Story - The Incredible Marrec

(Video Link)

Here’s a fine animated short for all you salty dogs out there, a short about seafaring men and the epic yarns they spin to their fellow sailors.

It’s called The Incredible Marrec, and it was created by a team of directors/animators: Regis Aillet, Alexandre Bass, Clement Chaudat, Etienne Devillée, and Maxime Moreira.

These five fish fancyin’ folks have managed to bring an oceanic tale to life that looks good and tells a mighty fine tale to boot, and you won’t need to strap on your sea legs, or take any Dramamine, to enjoy this salt water story because you can watch it from the comfort of your own home!

Disturbing Typographic Surgery Sculptures

It’s generally assumed that what lies inside letters is nothing but ink, or wood or foam or pixels when they make the jump to 3d, but as it turns out their insides look a lot like ours.

They’re full of muscles, veins, nerves and bones just like humans, but their lack of facial features makes it okay to perform surgery on them because you’ll never know when they’re in pain!

Just ask sculptor Andreas Scheiger, he is very familiar with the inside of a letter, and his series Evolution of Type reveals to the world what lies beneath the surface of a letter’s skin, and lemme tell ya- it ain’t pretty!

Ten Most Unintentionally Disturbing Statues In The World

(Image Via Medicingid)

(Image Via Bestourism)

Public art is meant to be eye catching and pleasant to look at, and not something that will make little kids cry or make people feel uncomfortable being around it, so when public art frightens rather than amuses it becomes the talk of the town.

Putting up a statue of Marilyn Monroe’s iconic pose from The Seven-Year Itch is one thing, but putting a statue of a half dissected pregnant warrior woman in the town square for all to see is bound to give the kiddies nightmares!

The artists clearly didn’t intend their statues to be terrifying (although a few are definitely testing the boundaries), but sometimes what looks good on paper, and in the studio, looks rather scary when exposed to the light of day.

Men Took Coffee Very Seriously In The 1950s, According To Commercials

(Video Link)

Men took things, like coffee and their hair, way more seriously in the 1950s and 60s than they do today, at least according to television commercials featuring husbands grumping about their coffee to their poor wives.

It’s no wonder the divorce rate soared through the roof, women were sick of hearing about how bad their coffee tastes, and men fell into the arms of the first woman who made them a decent cuppa joe!

Wake up to Coffee Jerks, a vintage commercial compilation featuring old timey ads about homebrewed marriage trouble put together by Shaun Clayton a few years back.

It’ll open your eyes to the trials and tribulations of those brave domestic folks who had to suffer with making coffee at home, back before there was a Starbucks on every block. How ever did they manage!

Stop Motion Animation Brings Folded Tissue Animals To Life

(Video Link)

Normally we think of facial tissue as nothing more than snot collectors or eye wipers, but artist Yuki Ariga has found a much cooler use for facial tissues- she folded them into animal shapes and created a cute stop motion animation short where the little paper animals come to life.

Tissue Animals was created as an ad for the Japanese paper manufacturer Nepia, and Yuki will no doubt see her original concept duplicated by other paper artists who may have previously overlooked the value of an unsnotty tissue when it comes to creating unique papercraft creations.

Photos Of D-Day Locations In Normandy Then And Now

It’s hard to imagine the D-Day Invasion in full swing, with soldiers storming the beaches and explosions peppering the coast, when you look at pictures of the beaches in Normandy, France today, but seventy years ago this was the place where the Allies would turn the tides of war and end the German occupation of France.

Photographer Chris Helgren has compiled a series of photos that show key locations in the D-Day Invasion from then (June 6, 1944) and now, and needless to say there's a lot less barbed wire and a lot more bikinis!

A Rare Look Behind-The-Scenes Of The Price Is Right

(Video Link)

The Price Is Right is one of the most beloved TV game shows of all time, mostly because people from all walks of life who attend a taping of the show have a chance of becoming a contestant and winning big prizes.

TPIR is also home to lots of fun, and colorful, games like Cliff Hangers, Plinko and the unique value bidding game the Showcase Showdown, so those who have their name called not only have a fun time ahead of them on stage, they get to see the magic and mystery that lies behind the curtain.

Backstage is where all the magic happens, and thanks to this lengthy video you get to take a look behind-the-scenes of The Price Is Right like never before.

How much would you bid for a peek behind The Price Is Right curtain? I’d bid a dollar…

(Note: the video is three hours total length, but the content is only one hour in length which is repeated for later broadcast)

Comic Book Panels Seem Dirty When Taken Out-Of-Context

Comic book panels are meant to correlate to each other, as parts of a whole page, but when you take a single comic panel out of the page and read it totally out of context from the rest of the issue things tend to get lost in translation, and the whole thing seems downright dirty.

Sure, some comics contain such laughably bad dialog that you don’t even need to single out certain panels to get a laugh, but in this case we’re talking about stoic, stuffy superheroes like Batman, Superman and Captain America, guys who don’t normally crack a smile, much less crack wise.

Bask in the comedic glory of 43 Out-Of-Context Comic Panels That Prove All Superheroes Have Dirty Minds and remember- they’re only dirty in your mind!

Literal Interpretations Of Nonsensical Song Lyrics

Most song lyrics aren’t meant to be taken literally, if they were we’d all be kissing the sky, putting the ram in the rama lama ding dong and sailing the seas of cheese, but it can be fun to think about what those lyrics would look like if they were visualized exactly as they sound.

Artist Nathan Pyle is obviously a music lover and a lyrically minded fellow at that, so he has created some fun GIF interpretations of song lyrics that make no sense when taken literally.

So, if you've ever wondered what a room without a roof looks like while clapping along, or how it would look if someone tried to set fire to the rain, you can thank Nathan Pyle for the visuals!

Sharkasm - The Fish Don't Think He's Very Funny


Sharkasm by HandsOffMyDinosaur

It's hard to tell by looking at them, but sharks have a wonderful sense of humor. They like to joke with their prey before they rip them to shreds, and they often leave their food to laugh themselves to death when they're just looking for a bite of fish.

Bigfoot of Endor - A Strange Chewie Sighting


Bigfoot of Endor by Hoborobo

The forest moon was full of furry creatures of all shapes and sizes, and they generally got along just fine thanks to daily parties and plenty of libations, but when the critter they referred to as Bigfoot moved in things got pretty scary. He carried a big bowcaster and a bag full of tiny bones, and when he spoke it sounded like a sheep was being strangled. The little alien bear people now live in fear of the Bigfoot, hoping to one day hire a smuggler to come and take him away...

German Artist Creates Replica Of Van Gogh's Lost Ear

(Image Via The Center For Art and Media)

It appears that the world of fine art is being taken over by those following in Dr. Frankenstein's footsteps, because you no longer need to paint like Van Gogh, or have his eye for color, to succeed in the art world- all you need is his severed ear.

A German artist by the name of Diemut Strebe has created a replica of Van Gogh’s severed ear using DNA from Vincent’s great-great-grandnephew Lieuwe Van Gogh, and now the strange incarnation of the legendary lopped ear is on display at the Center for Art and Media in Karlsruhe, Germany.

Two questions immediately come to mind- "why the hell would anybody do such a thing?" and "is this art?", both of which can be answered the same way- your guess is as good as mine!

Man Transforms Bedroom Into Arcade, Gets Dumped By Fiancee

It’s a story as old as geekdom itself- guy gets engaged, guy reveals geeky obsession to fiancée, fiancée dumps him for being too geeky.

It’s a real shame when it happens, it’s generally an unfair thing for geeks to have to go through, but sometimes it really is the guy’s fault.

Case in point- a Murray Hill, New York resident by the name of Chris Kooluris spent two years and over $32,000 turning a bedroom into his ultimate 80s arcade dream and ended up letting his relationship fall apart, because he was so obsessed with his game room that he paid his fiancee less attention than his precious coin-ops.

In this instance she might have stuck with him if he’d kept his obsession in check, but now he's left with nothing but Pac-Man fever and an empty coin slot where his heart used to be.

Beautiful Medieval-Style Tolkien Illustrations In Watercolor

There have been many different illustrators applying their own signature style to artwork based on the stories of J. R. R. Tolkien, from my fav Ian Miller to Pauline Baynes and even Tolkien himself, but few have applied a style as appropriately antiquated as Russian artist Sergei Iukhimov.

Sergei's watercolor works capture iconic scenes from the books in a style reminiscent of medieval Russian Orthodox iconography, and his works have been used in Russian language publications of Lord Of The Rings, adding a touch of the strange and surreal which brings these scenes to a whole new level of epic fantasy awesomeness.

You can see more of Sergei's works at Live Memory and egelantier's Tumblr.

Preteen Girls Claim Slender Man Drove Them To Murder

The Slender Man myth has jumped out of the computer screen and into the courtroom in one of the strangest, and most ridiculous, attempted murder defenses ever.

Two twelve year old girls from Waukesha, Wisconsin are claiming they brutally attacked a fellow classmate to appease the Slender Man- the girls stabbed their "friend" nineteen times and left her for dead in a park, but the victim managed to survive by staggering to the road and finding help.

One girl claims she was sure the Slender Man would kill her family if she didn’t appease him with murder, and they’re both sticking by their claims that the Slender Man is real.

Here's more on this strange case:

Weier told police that Slender Man is the "leader" of Creepypasta, and in the hierarchy of that world, one must kill in order to show dedication. Weier said that Geyser told her they should become "proxies" of Slender Man — a paranormal figure known for his ability to create tendrils from his fingers and back — and kill their friend to prove themselves worthy of him. Weier said she was surprised by Geyser's suggestion, but also excited to prove skeptics wrong and show that Slender Man really did exist.

So did the girls simply let their imaginations, and their dark impulses, get the better of them, or is the whole thing something they cooked up hoping to avoid being tried as adults?
