Innovative Food Wrappers That Help Reduce Package Waste

Food wrappers amount to millions of tons of additional garbage ending up in landfills each year, but the fact that they make food products far more portable and help keep them fresh means they’re not going away anytime soon.

So how do we reduce wrapper waste yet retain their usefulness? Swedish design duo Tomorrow Machine have offered a solution in the form of compostable and reusable packaging.

Tomorrow Machine's package designs come in two package waste reducing forms- a compostable container that dissolves in water and the Sustainable Expanding Bowl:

A biodegradable, cellulose wrapper fits snugly around freeze-dried food. Pour hot water into a spout, and not only will the food insta-cook, the wrapper will blossom open and morph into a bowl.

Ten Lesser Known Tools Used By Ninjas

(Image Link)

The ninja has become such an archetypal figure in the world of pop culture that ninjafans assume they know all there is to know about the shadowy assassins in black because they've seen all the movies and read all the books.

However, most of those books and movies leave out all the real cool ways ninjas used elements in their surroundings to their advantage, and the nifty little gadgets that aided them in their stealthy pursuits.

(Image Link)

Need to cross a moat or pond in a hurry? Historians believe ninjas strapped pontoon like devices to their feet called Mizu Gumo (Water Spider), which folded up nicely and helped aid in their escape.

Shuriken are cool and katanas slice real nice, but there’s nothing like silently delivering a dose of poison via hairpin, or scratching your way to victory with the Neko-Te (cat’s paw) weapon used primarily by the kunoichi (female ninja).

(Image Link)

Want to learn more about the tools found in a real ninja’s arsenal? Check out 10 Stealthy And Dangerous Ninja Tools You Didn’t Know Existed and you'll gain a better appreciation of the ninja's crafty nature.

Incredible Breakdancing Routine Performed With Fireworks Strapped To Their Feet

Breakdancing is a pretty flashy form of dance in its own right, but what happens when you pump up the flash factor by adding some fireworks into the mix?

You get one dangerous looking dance routine that lights up the night, a routine that only the bravest breakers would ever dare to attempt.

(YouTube Link)

Two brave breakers from Germany named LIL AMOK and BBoy Snoop proved they're down to undertake dangerous dance missions by performing with fireworks strapped to their feet.

Their mad moves look even more incredible with those colorful sparks flying off their sneakers and into the air, and the whole thing culminates in an unreal headspin finale sure to leave you all fired up!

This Racy Domino's Pizza Ad Campaign Is Fifty Shades Of Wrong

Domino’s Pizza has always taken a rather lighthearted approach to advertising (remember the Noid?) but when it comes to creating national ad campaigns it can be really easy to take humor too far.

Take this Sriracha Pizza spot Domino's wisely decided not to include in their Superbowl ad campaign:

The ad was created by advertising agency McCann Israel, and even though the pitch was never approved the image inevitably made its way online and is now causing quite a stir. Domino's reps are ardently denying they authorized use of their logo, and claim "the people responsible are being dealt with", but it sure looks like a legit pitch to me.

It’s obviously meant to cash in on the Fifty Shades Of Grey hype and add some edginess to their ads, but deciding the S&M theme was a little too NC-17 for a national ad campaign was clearly a smart choice. -Via The Daily What

Pit Bull - Dachshund Mix Is A Thing Of Bizarre Beauty

When a breed becomes the latest doggy hotness they star in more mutt combos, like the semi-recent wave of Chihuahua and Corgi combos making the dog world a shorter and stockier place.

These mixes of popular breeds are sure to get noticed at the dog park, but what about those less popular or unfairly stigmatized breeds?

(Image Link)

Apparently they look even more spectacular when they come together, and when the bully and the weenie combine the offspring is a thing of bizarre beauty.

Meet Rami, the Pit Bull Terrier-Dachshund combo, and one of the cutest/creepiest looking canines I’ve ever seen! Rami has a head that's probably caused more than a few faceplants, and with his interesting body shape and fascinating face it's not surprising that his story has gone viral.

Rami is available for adoption through Georgia's Moultrie Colquitt County Humane Society, and his unique appearance has made him a big hit on their Facebook page, where you can see videos of Rami running around and pics of Rami getting a bath- just like a normal dog! -Via BuzzFeed

Mutant Pirate - He's Jolly But His Name Ain't Roger


Mutant Pirate by Andriu

With a yo-ho-ho and a bottle of rum a pirate will drunkenly saunter their way into your port town and cause trouble, but Logan isn't some eyepatch sportin' swabbie with a peg leg. He's a new kind of pirate, a freaky fellow who has no need of societal norms, and when he shows up in town folks know things are about to get dicey. They call him Wolverine for a reason- he's short tempered, savage, and loves tearing into people with his mighty sharp claws. Those swashbucklers can have their sabers and wenches, all Logan needs to have a good time are a snick snick and a bloodthirsty smile...

Slice through the forces of boring fashion, bring home this Mutant Pirate t-shirt by Andriu and you'll see how Jolly your fellow X-fans can be!

Beware Of Dogs Pretending To Be Human

Dogs have been man's best friend ever since a poem in the New York Literary Journal coined the term back in 1821, but they're best friend in title only and tired of being treated like second class mammals.

The way dogs see it if they can do what humans do then their ranking in the mammalian pecking order is guaranteed to go up. However, dogs acting like humans may sound like fun, but as these images will show it could mean the beginning of the end for both felines and mankind!

It all started back in those black and white toned days of yore, when some lazy nanny decided to let the family dog take over for the afternoon

(Image Link)

Dogs soon discovered that if they could perform those menial tasks that humans hate they'd soon be offered a job

(Image Link)

Jobs would lead to social status and an income, and humans would begin to entrust them with more responsibility in society

(Image Link)

So dogs taught themselves how to drive to work every morning just like a human

When Dale founded K's Motor Shop he had no idea what sort of people his humble hot rod shop would attract, but before he knew it Dale was neck deep in rolling alien trash cans looking for a V8 upgrade.

The Wonderful World Of Wonder Woman Cosplay

Wonder Woman is one of the most enduring characters in comic book history, and even though she doesn't look like she has aged a day she has lived many different lives, and worn many different costumes, in the last 74 years. 

Here's a collection of 30 different incarnations of Wonder Woman, most of which were actually inspired by looks seen in the pages of Wonder Woman comic books.

1. Little Wonder Girl-

Wonder Woman is an inspiration to people of all ages, but nobody idolizes the Amazonian warrior princess more than young girls. This heroic little Wonder Girl looks like she's ready to battle any bullies who threaten freedom on the playground.

(Image  Link)

2. Wonder Woman in Fancy Ball Gown-

When Diana Prince gets dressed up for a superhero's ball she likes to keep her look formal and fancy, and this unknown cosplayer perfectly captures that Wonder-fully fancy ball gown look in her mighty poofy dress.

(Image Link)

3. Rockabilly Wonder Woman-

This rockin' good Rockabilly Wonder Woman costume is part of a retro inspired group costume created by cast members from The Home of Happiness Rocky Horror Picture Show Shadowcast for New York Comic Con in 2013.

You can see the rest of their ensemble here, and while the Rockabilly Batman costume is definitely inspired by Denis Medri's drawings, the rest of the group came up with their own original creations.

(Image via Katrina Catizone Facebook Page)

4. Atomic Wonder Woman-

Who needs a sword when you've got a chainsaw spear?! Cosplayer Meagan Marie created this extremely cool costume based on the post apocalyptic Atomic Wonder Woman character that appears in the game Infinite Crisis.

A Pair Of Hulk Hands Magically Change A Young Nerd's Life

Finding a pair of Hulk hands would make any Marvelite’s day, and the discoverer would probably take the hands home and set them on a shelf like a good little collector, but Hulk hands aren’t made for sitting- they’re made for SMASHING!

Now imagine if that smashing power was discovered by a wimpy nerd who was always getting picked on by a pack of jocks and you’ve imagined the premise of a short film called "The Incredible Hulk Hands" by Ari Fararooy.

(Vimeo Link)

"The Incredible Hulk Hands" kinda looks like an anti-bullying film made by Wes Anderson in collaboration with comedy troupe The State. It's genuinely funny, quirky in all the right ways, and even manages to add a touch of heart to the tale of nerdy David versus a jock triumvirate version of Goliath.

Rare Childhood Photographs Of Frida Kahlo Taken By Her Father Guillermo

Frida Kahlo's life was well documented, and both her (mostly self portrait) paintings and the hundreds of photographs taken of her and her husband Diego Rivera help paint a pretty clear picture of their life together. But there's one part of Frida's life that's not so well known- her happy childhood.

Frida grew up in La Casa Azul with her adoring father Guillermo and mother Matilde, and no matter what was happening outside the walls of that blue house the scene inside was one of love and adoration. 

Guillermo adored his darling Frida, and he delighted in photographically documenting her young life, a practice that most assuredly inspired Frida's later love of self portraiture. 

It’s almost surreal to see Frida playing with a dolly or posing with friends in pretty dresses and big bows, but even the most far out artists often come from quite normal households.

Ten Products With Unfortunate Names And What Those Names Actually Mean

Naming is an important part of brand identity, and product names often go through different stages of development, from focus group testing to branding, before being slapped on a label and sold in stores. But even with all this testing and discussion terrible brand names sometimes slip through, and other times what we perceive as being a bad brand name is simply a matter of mistranslation.

Here are the stories behind ten products with seemingly unfortunate names, and the real story behind their bad brand names:

1. Tastes Like Grandma Homemade Jam- 

(Image Link)

Let's start off the list with a lighthearted entry- Tastes Like Grandma Homemade Jam, which derives its bad name from a typo.

Add an apostrophe and the letter S after Grandma and you've got a normal product, leave it like it is and it sounds like a spread beloved by cannibals and zombie cosplayers! If they ever come out with a Tomacco flavored jam they can slap Ralph Wiggum's face on the label and cash in!

2. Barf Detergent-

(Image Link)

Generally folks are trying to clean the barf out of their clothes rather than trying to clean their clothes with barf, so this detergent probably isn't a top seller in English speaking countries. However, Barf is probably a fine cleaning product, and the word "barf" is Persian for "snow" so it makes sense after all!

3. Pee Cola-

(Image Link)

Pee cola is brewed and bottled in Ghana out of cola, sugar and soda water, so it's not pee as you and I know it, that is until it comes out again. In this case the "pee" in Pee Cola actually means "Very Good", and this popular soda pop's sales certainly don't suffer due to mistranslation.

Lost Martin Luther King, Jr. Speech Discovered In UCLA Storage

(Image Credit: Stephen Somerstein/Getty Images)

When Martin Luther King, Jr.’s legacy is discussed it’s a sure bet one of his famous speeches is a big part of that discussion.

His I Have A Dream speech has come to represent the ideals of the Civil Rights Movement, and the Speech at the Great March on Detroit and The Birth Of A New Nation are both considered socially and historically important speeches that helped shape the nation into what it is today. 

It turns out King's catalog of oration has been missing one important item for many years- a speech he gave at UCLA on April 27, 1965. The long lost recording of this speech was recently discovered in a storage room by archivist Derek Bolin and chair of UCLA Department of Communication Studies Tim Groeling, and thanks to their efforts to preserve history we can now hear the speech in its entirety here

Horror Rhapsody - Very, Very Frightning Me


Horror Rhapsody by Absolem Studio

Cookie Mobster - C Is For Chocolate Chip...And Crime


Cookie Mobster by Sophie Corrigan

When the cookie supplies started to run dry CM took it in stride, but when the government instituted a ban on cookies and other baked goods Cookie went from Monster to Mobster overnight.
