The Secret Behind Geordi La Forge's Visor

Geordi La Forge was born blind and yet he can see better than anyone else on the Enterprise thanks to his signature visor.

It may look like a hair clip, and clash with everything in his wardrobe, but as this comic by Caldwell Tanner shows Geordi's visor gives him the extraordinary ability to see what his fellow crewmates wish to remain hidden. And Captain Picard has some 'splainin' to do about that tattoo!

Out Of Toilet Paper

Running out of toilet paper while in the bathroom can make you feel helpless, and if you keep running out while stranded atop the porcelain throne you learn to stock up so you don't get stuck again.

But as this Pie Comic shows, if you're going through a six pack or more a week there may be a ridiculous reason behind the shortage...

Portland Anarchist Road Care Is Here To Repair Those Pesky Potholes

What do the people of Portland, Oregon to do when the local government won't pay for much needed road repair?

They call in Portland Anarchist Road Care and let those masked madmen "illegally" repair potholes around town.

Portland Anarchist Road Care has the tools, the tar and the moxy to do what the city council refuses to do- repair potholes in a timely and efficient manner.

The PARC also has a well written manifesto:

Because we believe in building community solutions to the issues we face, outside of the state.

Because society portrays anarchists as only breaking windows and blocking roads.

Because when faced with anarchism as a political theory, statest often ask "But who will fix the roads."

Because the city of Portland refuses to adequately repair roads in a timely manner.

We are Portland Anarchist Road Care. We believe in community oriented direct action. We believe the state cares more about funding a militarized police force to suppress free speech than caring for and repairing the roads.

The city of Portland has shown gross negligence in its inadequate preventative care through this winter's storms, and through its slow repair of potholes as weather has improved. Daily, this negligence is an active danger to cyclists and causes damage to people's automobiles, and an increased risk of collision and bodily injury.

Portland Anarchist Road Care aims to mobilize crews throughout our city, in our neighborhoods, to patch our streets, build community, and continue to find solutions to community problems outside of the state.

What's Inside A Rattlesnake's Rattle?

Rattlesnakes are one of the most feared group of venemous snakes in the world, but it's not the rattlesnake's fault they meet (and bite) so many people and pets when encountered in the wild.

In fact, they're born with a built-in defense mechanism and warning device that should make people and pets steer clear- the rattle in their tail.

It's terrifying to hear that rattle while you're out enjoying nature, and many animals are innately terrified of the sound, but how do their tails make such a creepy sound?

(YouTube Link)

Daniel and Lincoln from the What's Inside? channel dissected a rattlesnake's tail to see how it rattles, and even though Lincoln was totally grossed out he learned one thing- there ain't no balls in there!

Real Enchanted Roses That Last For Twenty Years Or More

In the tale of Beauty and the Beast the cursed prince must find his true love before the last petal of The Enchanted Rose falls or he'll be stuck in beast mode forever.

Anyone who has brought home a beautiful bouquet and watched it wither can relate to this symbolism, and as much as we'd like those roses to live forever they don't last long.

That is, unless they're the gorgeous blooms being produced by Forever Roses, a luxury flower company selling roses they claim will last for three years without sunlight or water- or "forever" (20+ years) when kept under a glass dome.

This Amazing Toy Block Tape Turns Anything Into A LEGO-Friendly Surface

Flower Power

Flowers are powerful even though they look like a stiff breeze would uproot them, but when the Hippies started using the slogan "Flower Power" as part of their anti-violence protests flowers began to look weak.

But as you can see in this Mr. Lovenstein comic many flowers are surprisingly pro-violence and anti-pansy, and I don't mean that metaphorically- all plants hate pansies for some reason. And that's one to grow on!

How Weta Workshop Made That Dazzling Thermoptic Suit For Ghost In The Shell

The Ghost In The Shell movie adaptation looks like it's going to be a visual treat for sci-fi fans, but one element of the production stands out more than the rest- Motoko's thermoptic suit.

It's sleek, sexy and, according to WETA Workshop costume artist Flo Foxworthy, most likely the first time a full silicone hero suit has been created for a movie.

Flo literally gave Danica Chan of Tested full access to the suit by letting her slip it on, showing off the hidden features of her marvelously modern feat of costume engineering.

I Can't Take My Eyes Off These Creepy Collages Even Though I Really, Really Want To

The subjects in Phillip Kremer's collage portraits are familiar yet bizarrely alien, unnerving to look at yet utterly ludicrous, and each character is beautifully hideous in their own way.

Plus, they look like the people you'll see while riding on the bus or subway late at night.

A post shared by @phillip.kremer on Feb 21, 2017 at 5:01am PST

Kremer's creeps give his Instagram followers something strange to giggle about, but they're presumably also the reason why Instagram has closed his account- twice.

A post shared by @phillip.kremer on Feb 25, 2017 at 9:09pm PST

I'm guessing this is the portrait that caused Instagram to ghost him without an explanation or apology. Sorry not sorry about the nightmares!

Decrepit Building Is Brought Down With A Few Well Placed Pokes

It usually takes a wrecking ball or dynamite to bring down a building, but when it's as old and decrepit as the brick building in this video all it takes is a littly prying and a few well placed pokes to bring the whole place down.

(YouTube Link)

This destructively satisfying video shot by Vanessa Dixon was shared on /r/nonononoyes with the caption "Press button 12 times to delete house".

Now I'm going to go around poking every wall I come across 12 times just to see what happens...

Secrets Of Historical Reenactors

Historical reenactors are typically people who have fallen in love with a particular era of history, so they dress up in historically accurate wardrobe and reenact important battles with their fellow history fans.

These past-minded people take historical reenactments very seriously, so they'd like to clear up some misconceptions, starting with the "kit" they wear.

Reenactors consider it somewhat insulting when people refer to their wardrobe as a costume, because they put a lot of time, effort and money into making sure their "kit" is accurate in every way.

They also don't like it when people assume they're a bunch of cosplayers goofing around outside, because they're actually historians trying to get a feel for life in their favorite era.

Many reenactors train in historical skills that enhance the experience for all in attendance:

Albert Roberts, a reenactor who portrays physicians in the late 18th and early 19th centuries, jokes that when he began he didn’t have any practical 18th century skills at all. “I couldn’t hunt, I couldn’t fish, I couldn’t soldier, I couldn’t ride horses, I couldn’t blacksmith, I couldn’t carpenter, I couldn’t birth babies,” he says, “so I had no value.” But after assisting, and then taking over, for the doctor at historic Mansker’s Station in Goodlettsville, Tennessee, he now has a deep knowledge of old medical techniques.

Bartgis, in addition to mastering Colonial penmanship and bookbinding for his 18th century persona, also has a basic grasp of sailing skills for his work with Ship’s Company, a living history organization dedicated to preserving late 18th and early 19th century maritime history.

Plus, many reenactors also have significant craft skills. Garrett notes that his group crafts most of their Viking gear, aside from speciality items like helmets. They even created their own Viking treasure hoard by molding and casting ancient coins.

Whiten Your Teeth By Wrapping Them In Aluminum Foil

The internet is full of life hacks people swear by even though they don't really understand how the hacks work, and at first glance many of these tricks seem like they won't work as advertised.

So I was naturally a bit skeptical about a tip involving whitening your teeth by wrapping them in aluminum foil, as anybody who has ever chewed foil would be.

But apparently if you mix some baking soda together with toothpaste, apply the paste to your teeth then wrap your teeth tightly in aluminum foil twice a week the combo will whiten your teeth.

Here's a robot voice confirming this fact:

I'm gonna try it out, here's hoping my teeth don't disintegrate!

Meet The Designer Cats With Wild Blood

Breeders who want to create a new and original breed start their genetic mix 'n' match wherever the jaguars and servals prowl.

Designer cat breeds, like the Bengals and Savannahs, are born from a breeder's desire to own wild cats, so they mate typical domesticated breeds with wild felines until they achieve the desired look.

Jean Mill was the first American breeder to breed Bengals, a cross between domestic cats and wild Asian leopard cats, and her cool looking designer cat continues to inspire breeders to mix it up and see what happens.

(YouTube Link)

Vox created this informative video to trace the roots of designer cat breeding in America and show what it takes to make those "small cats that look like big cats" that drive pet people crazy.

Bizarre Books You Won't Believe Actually Exist

When bibliophiles go out looking for a new book to add to their collection they tend to skip the gimmicky covers and go for titles/authors they know, or those which have been recommended to them.

But there's one slightly gimmicky book out there which needs no recommendation and yet is likely to be recommended by all after being purchased- How To Talk To Your Cat About Gun Safety.

Zachary Auburn's hilarious spoof scored high ratings from both gun nuts and cat nuts:

Promising review: “I decided to order this because my cat was out of control; promiscuous, a gun nut, and using the internet unsafely. I read her this book over the course of a month, and did some activities. I now have a well adjusted, polite, safe cat who enjoys life the way it was meant to be. Thank you.” —Amazon Customer

How To Survive A Garden Gnome Attack is another must read book if you live in an area heavily populated by garden gnomes, because knowledge is power and power is safety...or something like that.

But enough with the comedy, let's get serious about the mental benefits of reading books- books teach us stuff, and this knowledge can help us master new skills and even start a new career.

Or you can buy How To Be A Drug Dealer by author 673126 and learn how to start a career in crime from a very reputable and proud source who has a knack for encouraging people to commit felonies.

Pregnant Subway Passenger Gives Guy A Trophy For Doing The Right Thing

Giving your seat up to pregnant women, the disabled and the elderly is the decent thing for an  able bodied individual to do when riding on the subway, but these days common decency is often left at the station.

However, there are still plenty of respectful and caring people out there who will do the right thing and give up their seat- and production designer/mom Yvonne Lin thinks they deserve an award.

Yvonne created this really cool statue to give to the first guy who gave up his seat on the subway to her, and the lucky winner was father of two Ricky Barksdale:

“He was staring at his phone,” Lin said. “He looked up and looked around and was like, ‘Holy crap, you’re pregnant! You need to have a seat.’”

Ricky was proud to receive the award but also had this to say to guys who don't give up their seats:

“It was a nice gesture of her, but it’s also sad for my male counterparts to allow something like this to happen,” he said, adding, “If you clearly see a visible pregnant woman, you’re okay to stand up. She needs that more than you.”

“I just hope that this story motivates others to do the right thing,” he said. “Whether they’re pregnant, disabled, elderly, just do the right thing and be a decent human being.”

Stunning Portraits Of Famous Pop Culture Characters

Famous faces starring in some of the most memorable roles in pop culture are popular subjects in the world of fan art, but few artists are able to capture both the personality of the actor and the character they're playing.

This leaves their artwork lacking life, but the digital art portraits created by Russian artist Aleksei Vinogradov are full of colorful life with personality to spare.

Aleksei's portraits star famous actors playing equally famous roles, and many also include strange little critters serving as the characters' pets, as if the portraits themselves weren't appealing enough already!

Musician Cameos On 1980s TV Shows

The incredible music that came out in the 80s was a huge part of what made it the most radical decade of the 20th century, and in the 80s it wasn't uncommon to see musicians trying their hand at acting.

In fact, some musicians were so good at acting their appearances became the stuff of TV legend, like the time Phil Collins played crooked game show host Phil the Shill on Miami Vice.

(YouTube Link)

It's weird how good Phil Collins is in this role, but you know what's just plain strange in every way? The fact that the B-52s appeared on the soap opera Guiding Light back in 1982. What was that all about?!

(YouTube Link)

And speaking of strange pop culture juxtapositions- Boy George appeared on an episode of The A-Team called Cowboy George- it doesn't get much more 80s than that!

Thomas The Tank Engine Gets A Flamethrower Upgrade

Thomas the Tank Engine and his friends always seemed a bit creepy to me, especially when you consider those talking trains will someday rise up against their human oppressors and make a bloody mess on the tracks.

So why on Earth would a human want to enhance Thomas by giving him robo-legs and a frickin' flamethrower?

Because the human in question is mad model builder Peter Sripol, and he loves to play with deadly toys...as long as he's holding the remote control!

Guy Journals His Depressing Trip To IKEA With His Wife

It's no surprise that home decorators, builders and crafters love IKEA, because the stuff they sell is easy to modify, paint and link together so the possibilities are endless.

But if you're not a builder, home furnishings fan or Imgur user fantafano's wife then IKEA can feel like one megabore of a megastore and a giant trap, one that provides food so you never have to leave.

Fantafano's wife was extremely enthustiastic about their trip to IKEA even though she apparently had no idea what she needed to buy from the store that never ends.

But the longer they're in the store the more of a minefield IKEA becomes for poor fantafano...

Meet The Guy Who Perfectly Recreated An 80s ShowBiz Pizza Place In Rural Mississippi

People who went to themed eateries like Showbiz Pizza Palace as a kid have fond memories of watching the robot band The Rock-afire Explosion while eating crappy pizza and trying to win enough tickets for a big prize.

So when all Showbiz Pizza Place locations either closed or changed into Chuck E. Cheese's in 1992 fans of the Explosion were in shock, since part of their childhood had just beeen scrapped.

But 38-year-old Damon Breland wasn't ready to let those fond memories go, so he started buying up all the animatronics, interior decor and costumes he could find from the good old days of ShowBiz and Chuck E. Cheese's.

(YouTube Link)

Now Damon's collection resides in an old abandoned gas station in Sandy Hook, Mississippi he renamed Smitty's Super Service Station, where lucky fans can go to see the Rock-afire perform like they did decades ago.

Smitty's Super Service Station from Carr Video Productions on Vimeo.

Damon's collection even includes The KING from Chuck E. Cheese's, which used to scare the crap out of me when I was a kid for some reason. Now they all make my skin crawl...in a good way!

Artist Repackages Popular Junk Food For Hipsters

The Hipster movement has been all about craft- hand crafted clothing, craft beer and finely crafted food and cocktails made with raw, locally sourced and organic ingredients.

This craft mentality means most Hipsters don't go for packaged junk food like Twinkies, Slim Jims and Fruit by the Foot, so they're missing out on the best/worst crappy food products available today.

But if artist Dan Meth's rebranding project catches on Hipsters may soon start trading in their craft fruit leather for a tin of Fruit Par La Metre!

Dan's rebranded packages appeal to the Hipster's pretentious sensibilities and their love of new stuff in old timey looking packaging, so they can finally see what the crunchberries craze is all about.

Leveling Up In Real Life

Roleplaying game players have one distinct advantage over the uninitiated- we know how to approach life's trials and tribulations as part of an epic adventure.

We improve our character by raising our stats and learning new skills, we take on side quests to raise money for new gear, and we look for any opportunity to gain experience points by exploring the map.

But, as this Draw Write Play comic shows, the RPGers greatest asset is our ability to abandon a quest and still level up!

Parents Are Taking The "Exact Instructions Challenge" With Hilarious Results

Everybody knows how to "make" a peanut butter & jelly sandwich, a banana split or a bowl of cereal, but could you write out instructions clear enough to teach someone else how to make them?

Of course you could, or at least it seems easy enough, but kids have a harder time clearly instructing others, and if you follow their instructions exactly things are bound to go wrong.

That's the premise of the Exact Instructions Challenge, which was started by Josh Darnet when he asked his kids to write out instructions for a PB&J and made this adorable video.

(YouTube Link)

Josh's Challenge struck a chord with other parents, who eventually forced fun dad Bottlerocket to "make the ultimate sacrifice" and follow instructions from his kids on how to make a banana split.

(YouTube Link)

As long as none of the dishes involve cooking this challenge will continue to be fun, but if any of the dishes include chicken things are going to take a dark turn...

How To Live On A Boat Without Leaving The City

Living on a boat is a dream shared by very few people, since the accomodations are tight, the amenities are few and the comforts of home are lacking, but it does beat sleeping on the streets.

However, if you've always dreamed of living that boat life then it may surprise you to hear that you can actually live on a boat without leaving the city- and it may be cheaper than renting.

But before you stop homing or apartmenting and start boating you need to find out a few things, firstly whether you have access to slips or moorings or both, and whether it's legal to liveaboard in your city.

Docks are expensive but they often have electricity and water hookups, and access to bathrooms and showers and such, while moorings are cheap but leave you far from shore.

Once you figure out the legality and location of your boat life adventure you have to decide one more thing- whether to rent or buy a boat.

There are many boat owners out there who are willing to rent out their docked boats to tenants, but your new boatlord may cut your life at sea short if they choose to evict. On the other hand buying a new floating home can cost you some serious coin...

This Light Bulb Has Been Burning Since 1901

People are making more of an effort to conserve energy these days, and ever since incandescent bulbs have been replaced with CFL, LED and halogen lighting our homes has become less wasteful.

But that doesn't mean all old bulbs are trash, because the carbon filament bulb made by French electrical engineer Adolphe A. Chaillet above has been burning since 1901- and it's still going strong.

They call it the Centennial Light, and it hangs in the Livermore-Pleasanton Fire Department's Station #6 where it has been shedding around 4 watts of light for well over a hundred years.

When the bulb reached 1 million hours of service they threw it a party to celebrate, and "bulb tourists" drop by the station all the time to stare at the bulb that would not die.

So what are the guys at the Livermore Fire Station planning to do if and when the Centennial Light dies?

While nothing is official yet, they want to have a full funeral procession through town, finishing at the historical society where the bulb will be displayed in a resting place of honor.

Murmurs of a replacement bulb also abound. A supposedly unused Shelby model just like the current centennial bulb has been acquired by a party who may be willing to part with it when the time comes.

Some Of The Best Home Organizers Available On Amazon

Spring cleaning is more than just a cliched yearly tradition- it's a time to remodel, repair, reduce, recycle and reorganize all of the stuff in our homes, and to me reorganizing my home is the most fun.

Finding a place to neatly store and organize all of your stuff means you can have more stuff without feeling like a hoarder, and maximizing storage potential in the limited space you have.

I love to cook, so I have an ever growing collection of pots and pans but very little space for them all, which is why this Pan Rack Organizer appeals to me.

And if you think B&Bs are the only places that can have perfectly organized tea bags think again, because this TeaStand Tea Bag Caddy brings that B&B tea tidiness to your home!

But what about those two organizers at the top of the post?

That's a Bedside Storage Pocket and an OuTera Broom and Mop Organizer. No big deal, they're just two organizers that will totally change your life...

Movie Make-Up Makes Acting Hard

Full face makeup can fully transform an average human into an alien creature, monster or robot, but this transformation comes at a price- and it's the dialog that pays in the end.

Mumbled, butchered and muttered incoherently, these lines of dialog lose all weight when the actor saying them can't even move their lips under all that makeup.

And yet it's still better than those wacky overdubs they used to do back in the 60s and 70s! (NSFW due to language)

Watch 7-Year-Old Yo-Yo Ma Play For JFK Back In 1962

Some musicians become really good at playing by practicing their instrument for years, if not decades, until their skills are perfectly polished, but cellist Yo-Yo Ma was born talented.

In fact, his immense talent earned him a spot playing for John F. Kennedy, among others, at The American Pageant of the Arts back in 1962- when he was just 7 years old.

Yo-Yo took the stage with his sister Yeou-Cheng Ma at the show which was emceed by Leonard Bernstein, who introduced Yo-Yo and Yeou-Cheng with this speech that makes me long for more welcoming days in America:

That double stream of art I mentioned earlier flowing into and out of America has long been the attraction of our country to foreign artists and scientists and thinkers who have come not only to visit us, but often to join us as Americans. To become citizens of what to us has historically been the land of opportunity and to others the land of freedom. And in this great tradition there has come to us this year a young man aged seven bearing the name Yo-Yo Ma.
