Lucy Lawless Helps Hijack An Oil Drilling Ship For Greenpeace



Proving that she's still every bit the warrior she was when she played Xena Warrior Princess on the popular TV show, Lucy Lawless and fellow Greenpeace activists took control of an oil drilling ship off the coast of New Zealand yesterday to stop them from drilling in the Arctic and potentially causing environmental damage. Here's what the brave and beautiful Ms. Lawless had to say about the incident via live-tweet:

…The world has been putting fossil fuels in the air and the scientists have been screaming from the rooftops. The fact that now the major oil companies are spearheading this mad oil dash to the Arctic, one of the most pristine environments left on the planet, it’s the definition of madness. They think the melting ice caps is not a warning to humanity about climate change—they think it’s an invitation. This is unacceptable. We cannot allow our grandchildren to grow up with a terrible burden. That’s what we’re doing here today. Hands off the Arctic!

I bet the crew on board the oil drilling ship were glad that she didn't bring any Chakram (razor discs) with her, but wearing her battle armor during the hijacking would have been a nice touch!

Scenes From Oscar Nominees Recreated With A Baby



The silly images that make up this series show what this year's Oscar nominees would look like if they were recast with adorable babies. They already look like little stars to me, since they really seem to capture the mood of each film.

There's The Artist looking all silent and moustachioed as he hangs out with his doggy pal at breakfast, War Horse looking pinker and puffier than I remember from the movie, and a really sad baby girl who has been cast in The Help.

I have a feeling some of these movies would have been better off if a baby had played the lead role!

Photographer Captures Images Of Her Super Baby In Mid Flight



What's the best thing to do when you discover that your adorable infant has super powers, specifically the power of flight? Why, shoot a ton of pics and share them on the interwebs, of course!

Photographer Rachel Hulin aims to show the world just how super her baby Henry can be, whether he's floating over a mountain, inside a ghostly manor or dangerously close to the edge of the stairs. Rachel's photos show us that no obstacle is too large to overcome when you use the power of imagination.

You Have Woken Up In A Dark Room-What Do You Do?


(YouTube Link)

This ridiculous video by YouTuber ThatsMrRobertson pays homage to the old Choose Your Own Adventure book phenomenon of the 1980s but adds a modern twist-viewers get to choose their video fate via link choices, which he has updated three times this month alone!

It's a fun waste of time, a few of the choices are NSFW though, and overall it's pretty cool for what it is-a fun way to have an interactive video experience on YouTube. Good luck making it out of the dark room!

(YouTube Link)

This cute animated short shows what video game characters and their pet sidekicks are like when they get together at their local dog park.

Soap Shaped Like Nintendo Cartridges



Imagine the look of horror on your friend's face when you take that copy of Chrono Trigger he's been looking for all these years and proceed to wash your hands with it, the cartridge literally melting away before his eyes!

These cleverly designed Nintendo cartridge shaped soaps are for guests only, and they're not meant for insertion into any slots, console or personal or otherwise, so please don't get any sick ideas about playing human gaming console in the shower!

Dangerous Looking Sculptures Made Out Of Pencil Parts



I don't think we have to worry about these sculptures made out of pencil parts being stolen, because if someone did try to abscond with one you could easily track the thief by following the trail of blood.

Artist Jennifer Maestre clearly didn't feel the need to win every school yard pencil fight as a child, because win or lose she took home all the bits and pieces to use in her deadly beautiful sculptures. I got a case of lead poisoning just looking at all the sharp, and incredibly cool, sculptures in this gallery!

Androgynous Baby Aardvark Is Ugly Cute


(YouTube Link)

If you've got a serious case of the winter blahs like I do then you'll appreciate this baby aardvark video for the cuteness and innocent warmth it will bring to your dark gray skies.

If you're wondering why I included the word "androgynous" in the title, that's because the zoologists at Chicago's Brookfield Zoo aren't sure if this wrinkly little baby is male or female yet, because aardvarks don't develop visible genitalia until they're around a year old.

So, whether this little critter grows a second trunk or not, we can enjoy watching it do what little baby animals do best-stumble around looking cute. *insert appropriately sappy music*

Some Good Advice For Mrs. Clark



Kids have a knack for cutting through the BS and telling it like it is, especially when it comes to handing out advice. The brilliant 6 year old that wrote up this note for Mrs. Clark has some really sound advice about a shortcut to feeling better-just go poop!

This is good advice for us all, and I'm glad the note's author decided to include illustrated examples to walk us through the process. Everybody poops, and sometimes it's adorable!

Video Of 16-Bit Legend Of Zelda PC Case Being Built From Scratch


(YouTube Link)

Building a custom case for your desktop computer is a fun hobby with an impressive end result, and the fact that the computer retains full functionality tends to blow the minds of those who only see the case as an impressive work of art.

This video by Richard Clinton is fun to watch, and seeing the entire process in time lapse video can be quite informative, whether you want to make your own custom case or you're just wondering how they put it all together so it still functions as a desktop computer.

Join him, from a mostly overhead POV, as he builds a 16-bit Legend Of Zelda themed Link PC case, block by tiny little wooden block.

Robert Downey Jr. Pin-up Series



This disturbingly funny art mashup series made me retch with laughter, horrified laughter that forced me to close up my laptop when my girlfriend came in the room, so she wouldn't see the source of my uneasiness.

At least Robert Downey Jr. appears to be having fun playing pin-up, maybe he performs in drag in his spare time? One things for sure, Gil Elvgren (the great American pin-up artist and the source of some of these pin-ups) is most certainly turning in his grave over this series!

Batman Armor-Medieval Style



This full leather suit of Batman styled armor may not stop bullets or sharp swords, but it looks badass enough to put fear into the hearts of bad guys, so I'm sure it will serve old Batsy just fine when he hits the streets dirt roads.

The medieval version of Batman lives by the credo speak gruffly but carry a big sword. Is the medieval Batmobile some kind of crazy armored horse and cart?

Recycled Tech Turned Into Works Of Art



Who wants to clutter up landfills with old junk tech when you can make cool art pieces out of it?

The artists in this gallery have come up with some rather ingenious ways to recycle that old tech trash, from making surreal landscapes out of motherboards, a crashing wave of recycled records, and even a nine foot tall Autobot made out of old car and machine parts.

The pieces in this set will make you think twice before you chuck out your old tech junk, and maybe they'll even inspire the DIYers to repurpose that useless old junk and show the world how crafty they can be!

Slam Dunking Skills Circa 1990


(YouTube Link)

If you know someone who is in possession of some rather embarrassing VHS tape footage of you be very nice to that person until you get your hands on those tapes, unless you want to end up like the b-ball champ in this hilarious home video from 1990.

This sporty geek apparently has his sister to blame for his mad dunking skills being posted to the interwebs, so I'm sure family events are going to be a bit chilly from here on out for those two. I wonder if he ever made it into the NBA?

Custom Volkswagen Imperial Walker



If Star Wars took place in the groovy 1960s, instead of "a long, long time ago", the Imperial Walkers might have looked something like this bad boy.

A Volkswagen bus cleverly attached to some AT-AT legs might not look like the most menacing thing on the battlefield, but there's no better way to ride in style and comfort while blasting Rebel forces, and you can sleep right in the cockpit if you're too loaded to drive walk home.

So, whether you're crashing a peace and love festival on Endor or attending a Burning Man Jedi gathering in the vast desert of Tatooine, you'll be stomping around in style.

Inspector Spacetime Needs You!



The man pictured here is Inspector Spacetime, or rather, the actor who plays the fictional Inspector on a fictional show created for the cult hit TV show Community.

He's supposed to be an alternate version of Doctor Who, and characters Troy and Abed from Community are huge fans of the fictional space-time detective. Are you lost yet?

Well, here's the strange part-the actor pictured above (Travis Richey) wants to make Inspector Spacetime into a real show web series, and he needs your help!

Travis has started a Kickstarter account in order to get this project off the ground, and he has wisely avoided involving NBC in the project, which means the web series just might have some hope after all.

Scary Cute Cyclops Cosplayer



AAAGGHH! Make it stop looking at me! This cute yet terrifying cosplayer was spotted at the Tokyo Wonder Festival, and no she's not supposed to be a young Turanga Leela from Futurama.

However, if you know what anime character she is supposed to be please share, and while you're at it take a look at the other fun and crazy costumes spotted outside Wonder Fest 2012, they're a real hoot!

Lesser Known Uses Of Portals



This whimsical illustrated chart by Aaron Thong shows some alternate uses for portals, like the ones created by the handheld portal device carried by the main characters in the Portal video game series.

You'd better ask for permission from GLaDOS before attempting these unauthorized uses of your portal gun, or you may be taken offline. Skydiving seems like a fun way to use a portal, but hula hooping looks downright dangerous!

Real Life Diglett Is Too Cute To Battle



Diglett may be one of the least popular Pokemon to collect, due to his small size and limited power, but in real life he sure is cute!

He's too cute to tag on, or back your car into after a long night at the local Sigma Chi house, and he's probably a bit too heavy to just toss in the trunk of your car and take home, although I'm sure someone has attempted a Diglett kidnapping at some point because the little guy sure does have a lot of admirers!

Keyboard Jeans Are Here-Type Amongst Yourselves



Talk about cutting edge fashion, these keyboard jeans replace the need to carry around a cumbersome keyboard with you all day, and they give you a convenient excuse for touching yourself in public. Is that a mouse in your pocket, or are you just happy to be online?

Perfect for getting strangers to stare at your crotch, and for creating other awkward social moments when you're not online, keyboard jeans seem like a fairly useless invention, since all laptops have a built-in keyboards and most touch screen devices have a virtual keyboard app, so it's no wonder that the makers are having a hard time obtaining the funding needed to get them onto retail store racks.

But, if you don't want to wait for keyboard jeans to arrive at your local clothing store, you can always get a pair of jeans, some scissors, and one of those roll up jelly keyboards and get to snipping!

Rhett And Link Rap Up The Mario Bros.


(YouTube Link)

The comedy-advertising duo Rhett and Link star in this installment of Epic Rap Battles as the Wright Brothers, who are dying to tell the Mario Bros. why the Princess wants to hang out on the black and white side of the screen.

The Mario Bros., on the other hand, channel their inner guido and get tough, which really doesn't help their rhyming skills. Maybe you should have grabbed a Tanooki suit before this battle Mario Bros.!

Android Anatomy Reveals What Lies Beneath Their Robotic Skins

This series by illustrator Yves Joe Malgorn should be subtitled Visible Robot, and it reveals what lies beneath the skin of some of pop culture's most beloved droids like C-3PO, Bender, Mickey Mouse and Marilyn Monroe?

Apparently the illustrator believes that he is an android, and therefore other humans (especially females) must be full of robotic gears and circuitry as well. It's all a bit odd, unless you're a robot, then it should all make perfect sense.

(Some images on his site are NSFW due to nudity)

This panoramic shot of Mos Eisley by illustrator Ulises Farinas is full of characters and props from the Star Wars universe, some from another universe altogether, and some funny little Where's Waldo style surprises to discover as you scan over the detail crammed scene.

This amazing illustration definitely warrants a closer look, so make sure you hit the link to see it in all of it's full-sized glory. I never realized there were so many cats lurking around Tatooine, or that they have their own version of Batman lurking about in the back alleys!
