Many people find learning the Japanese language, both written and spoken, to be quite a daunting task, but the little chatterbox of a mynah bird in this video named Abechan is so good at speaking Japanese that he sounds just like his owner!
Abechan's proud owner has created a YouTube channel just for him entitled newSuperAbechan, which is full of videos showing Abechan and his owner carrying on conversations about everyday things, like what one should say when answering the house phone.
The duo should really consider creating their own prank video series, because seeing the expression on people's faces when they realize they've been talking to a bird would be priceless!

There have been all kinds of strange examples of Muppets mashup art making their way onto the interwebs, from the kinda freaky look of Muppet zombies to the extremely terrifying Muppets as real people, but the latest mashup making the rounds is disturbing both visually and mentally- The Muppets as Twin Peaks characters by illustrator Justin DeVine
Miss Piggy is cold, lifeless and wrapped in plastic, Gonzo is doing his weirdo dance in the Red Room, and Kermit Cooper is too hopped up on coffee to find Piggy’s killer, truly the darkest days ever experienced by the puppet troupe.
David Lynch productions are already pretty strange, but think about how strange Twin Peaks would have been if it had starred the Muppets!

Old MacDonald may have had a farm, which was home to lots of very repetitive animals, but there's one thing he didn't have- the kind of loving relationship shared between farmer Otchan and his beloved pigs.
The hog wild Japanese pig farmer tends to a whopping 1,200 pigs, and you can tell by the look on his face that he loves every minute he spends with his porcine pals.

Some dads really like to get creative with their kids, either building stuff for them or doing fun stuff with them, and thanks to the internet they’re able to share their fun projects with the world.
Lance Underwood is one of these creative dad type dudes, and he spent some quality time with his two sons recreating classic album covers.

IKEA furniture is cheap, easy to assemble and therefore endlessly modifiable, which makes it the best place to shop when you’re looking for a custom furniture creation for your pad.
There are all kinds of ways different IKEA components can be combined, constructed differently and generally modified by adding or subtracting one little part of the overall build.
This list is, for the most part, full of things anyone can do with some basic tools and specific IKEA models, but the most insane piece is the custom arcade cabinet decked out in IKEA blue and gold, something that only the bravest furniture constructor will attempt.
The mind of a comedian works in very strange ways, and it takes a perfect level of functional insanity to stand up in front of a bunch of strangers and tell jokes. It’s a tough gig, and those who are able to make money at it know that they’re getting paid for the crazy things floating around in their heads.
So it should come as no surprise that many comedians have tried psychedelic drugs, getting their head on, so to speak, and really digging deep into the vaults to pull out good material.
Psychedelics are still a hotly debated subject in the world of drugs, but take it from comedians like George Carlin and Bill Hicks- psychedelics make you think of comedy in a whole new light!
Selfie addicts should take note of this cautionary video when posing for pics near large moving vehicles, realizing that if you only get kicked in the head you got off easy.
The careless poser in this video had the bright idea to snap a selfie really close to the tracks as a train was about to go by, but the conductor spotted him standing too close to the tracks and took it upon himself to act like a human cow catcher-by kicking the guy in the head.
Some are speculating that the video is a fake, because why would you be shooting a video if you were posing for a selfie? Either way a smug selfie lover gets kicked in the head, yay trains!
There’s a popular misconception that nerd culture began in the 1970s with the rise of fandom conventions, adult comic book collectors and science fiction productions reaching a broader audience than ever before, but nerd culture as we know it today actually began around the turn of the 20th century.
Cosplayers are all the rage at the moment, but August Olson, the person often considered to be the first cosplayer, dressed up like a comic strip alien called Skygack to attend a masked ball in Monroe, Washington all the way back in 1912, so it appears cosplay is nothing new.
Outlaw motorcycle clubs have been riding free and freaking out the norms since World War II, when a bunch of servicemen back from the war decided to take a ride on the dark side of life.
French photographer Yan Morvan has always been fascinated by bikers, and gang members in general, so it’s no surprise that he made these free-wheeling folks the focus of his photographic vision, documenting biker gangs from all over for a book called Gangs Story, which was actually banned by French court.
Yan is a bit of a badass, with a rebellious streak in him as wide as the open road, and a few years ago he gave VICE a fascinating, and eyebrow raising, interview about his exploits which you can read here.
Snails are generally seen as garden pests, crunchy sidewalk debris and potential escargot, but if we could see the world from a snail's point of view we would discover a miniature world full of natural wonder, beautiful color and life that moves at a snail's pace.
Photographer Vyacheslav Mishchenko went way down low to capture the amazing miniature world of the snail, and his photo series reveals the magical world snails live in, a tiny world which can only be properly viewed with the help of a macro lens.
Video games can be downright frustrating at times, especially old school games that rely on precision button mashing and level pattern memorization.

Once upon the 1950s there was a robot band who rocked the rivets off the competition for only a nickel a song, a band called the Trio Fantastique who were created and managed by a mad scientist engineer named Zenon Specht (no relation).
The Trio Fantastique consisted of Wink on guitar, Blink on drums, and Nod who rocked the saxophone, and they were the house band for Antwerp’s Robot Club, also making appearances in various fairs and departments stores around France between 1954 and 1959.
People who choose to drink cheap wines like Boone's Farm and Franzia typically do so for one reason- the price. They’re not picky about the flavor notes, or the aftertaste, or the aroma- cheap wine drinkers want to get their buzz on without spending too much money, and they don't really care about reviews good or bad.
However, maybe the companies that make these cheap wines will appreciate some input from an Irish brewmaster named Damian McConn, a guy who enjoys flavor notes and aromas and such.
Damian share his reviews of some of the most popular cheap wines in this BuzzFeed presents video, and needless to say he is not impressed!
Have you ever noticed that famous landmarks always seem to look good in photographs?
You’d think the Taj Mahal was in the middle of a fantasy kingdom when you see it in photos, but zoom out a bit and show the surrounding area and you’ll discover that the Taj Mahal is sitting right next to a barren landscape littered with trash.
Zoom out on the pyramids at Giza and you’ve got a bustling metropolis all around, zoom out on Niagara Falls and it looks like part of a Las Vegas water park, but crop out the parts you don't want to see and those famous landmark photos will always look good! See more at PolicyMic.
Poor hipsters, you get picked on by the interwebs for your “unique” fashion sense, famous folks like Spike Lee don’t want you moving into their neighborhoods, and now people aren’t even sure how to talk to you without cue cards.
Guess it's a good thing we now have these Conversation Stopper and Starter Cards from The Portlandia Activity Book so we can all just get along.
The cards are full of great starter lines like “I used to think gender was binary”, and this cue which is sure to stop a conversation with any hipster instantly- “Do you have time to hear about all my accomplishments?”
Sculptor Stefanie Rocknak was chosen out of 265 artists to create a commemorative statue of Edgar Allan Poe to go up in the Boston neighborhood where he was born, and she has just unveiled the final design of her amazing statue.
The incredibly detailed and lifelike sculpture will be used as the basis for a bronze statue to go up on the corner of Boylston Street and Charles Street on October 5, 2014, an area commonly referred to as "Edgar Allan Poe Square".
I propose to cast a life-size figure of Poe in bronze. Just off the train, the figure would be walking south towards his place of birth, where his mother and father once lived. Poe, with a trunk full of ideas—and worldwide success—is finally coming home. His expression is complex. He is determined and his stride is decisive. His face reflects a mixture of pain, anger and sadness, and from some angles, a subtle sense of hope. As he walks towards Carver Street, he openly dismisses what is behind him with his left hand; the Frogpondians to the north. Boston is not claiming Poe, Poe is claiming Boston. To punctuate this, he leaves a literal paper trail behind him. He has not only left his mark on the world, he has left it on the city of his birth. His ideas are jumping off the page and cascading out of his trunk; a heart lies just behind him, and an oversized Raven explodes to the south. The Raven, which has become symbolic of Poe’s brooding creative spirit, visually reflects Poe; his coat mimics the raven’s wing, and, like a bird, Poe is slightly pigeon-toed. They are one, heading up-wind towards their final resting place.
Mister Finch creates soft sculptures which look like they're part of an otherworldly natural history museum collection, from a dimension where the flora and fauna are all made out of fabric.
Massive insects with textile wings, fabric birds with wire talons trapped in glass display domes, and linen plants with muted color palettes are all on display in Mister Finch's imaginative tableaus, taking the viewer on a trip into a purely fabric-ated realm created by that great big sewing machine in the sky.
