Beavis and his buddy Butthead taught us some pretty important lessons about life- don't bang your head too hard or you might mess up your brain, don't let teenage boys borrow anything, especially tools for the yard, and that helpful bit about the t.p. taught by that wisest of incarnations Cornholio.

SpaceX engineer Andrew Rader created this deliciously informative video to demonstrate how easy it is to prepare a meal made from mealworms and crickets (and a lone scorpion) and dine like a space colonist.
Here's what Andrew is proposing:
We're going to Mars - but what are we going to eat? If we want to become a spacefaring people, we should consider broadening our culinary horizons.
Non-synthetic meat in a space colony makes no sense. At least most kinds of meat: shellfish and some kinds of fish might be options, but the best option in terms of efficiency and ease of production is to do what billions of people on our planet already do: eat insects.
Most home buyers go about renovating their new home without thinking about the structure’s past, like who had a hand in building the place and when the building took place.
Sometimes renovations are necessary, sometimes they're done simply for the sake of aesthetic appeal, but no matter the human motivation the home itself doesn’t have anything to say about the renovations.
However, new homeowner Alex Robinson discovered he recently bought a house that doesn’t appreciate renovations, and isn't afraid to tell its new owner exactly how it feels.
Jim Henson experimented with many different modes of artistic expression during his far too brief life, and even though he’s best known for his amazing puppetry he was also quite the accomplished 2D animator.
Henson’s animated shorts were often created in order to explore new techniques, mediums or, in the case of this rediscovered paper cutout short from 1961, a way to bring the rhythms of jazz to life.
Jim and frequent collaborator Jerry Juhl used hundreds of pieces of construction paper to bring Chico Hamilton's snazzy solo Drums West to life, creating a kaleidoscopic visualization of jazz rhythm that'll put you in a trance.
This colorful short was rediscovered in 2013 by The Jim Henson Company, who added behind-the-scenes footage to show all the hard work that went into this deceptively simple paper cutout short before they re-shared it with the world.
People used to carefully select the photos added to their dating profiles on sites like Match.com and eHarmony, but because Tinder users choose who they want to date simply by looking at a photo the site's daters are happy to let it all hang out.
Tinder users would rather show you how carefree and crazy they are, thinking this will make them more virtually approachable and therefore land them more dates.
Instead, these "fun and fancy free" photos have drawn the attention of a bearded fellow named Jarrod Allen- Australian Instagrammer, acclaimed selfie parodist and Tinder's worst nightmare.
Jarrod's spot-on recreations of women's Tinder pics have brought out the sexy side of the bearded man, and might make lonely Tinder users think twice before they post such ridiculously cheesy photos to their profile.
Visitors to Death Valley, whether in person or via the interwebs, have noticed a strange phenomenon that takes place with some of the Valley’s rocks- they seem to be moving across the valley floor.
The rocks in Racetrack Playa move slowly enough that you can’t see the movement happening, about 15 feet per minute, but the fact that they are actually moving is reconfirmed by the trails left behind in their wake.
People have been wondering for decades what makes those rocks move like that, coming up with their own theories ranging from sporadic hurricane-force winds, little rafts made of ice, or little grey men in UFOs.
Now, thanks to a lucky discovery made last December by Richard and James Norris, we finally have an answer- weather phenomenon that surprisingly has much more in common with an arctic climate than a desert.
As this handy chart, created by Javier Zarracina from the LA Times, illustrates these sailing stones are moving due to a unique combination of weather patterns- rainfall gathers on a shallow layer above the desert floor then freezes into sheets overnight. The sheets crack under the morning sun, then the breeze pushes the rocks along on top of the muddy surface.
So, the next time you're on a road trip through Death Valley and your group comes across these seemingly miraculous sailing stones you can explain the mystery away with science!

The 60s were a mighty swingin' time, until the military accidentally exposed New York City's populace to a radioactive chemical that turned them into dead men and women walking. Some turned into slavering, mindless rotters, while others retained a bit of their old mind, and their old sense of style. Joan was mighty fortunate that the first two zombies she came across had retained part of their mind, and still recognized how hot she was, and with two collars and some chain she had herself a pair of mindless pets to help her stay alive...

August has drawn to a close, and over the last month the broadcast journalists we know and love have tried their best to keep us in the know, but some of the on-screen talent had a hard time keeping their minds on reporting.
These valiant newscasters attempted to cover all kinds of crazy stories last month, from Facebook going down (2:45) to the Apparently Kid taking the mic (4:23) and everything in-between, with afew spectacular fails along the way. (NSFW due to language)
Dia De Los Muertos is a celebration of life and contradictions- colorful skeletons symbolizing the beauty of death, freshly made food eaten graveside, and a party thrown in favor of those who can no longer celebrate with us- the dearly departed.
Cemeteries are a big part of the celebration, and the vibrant colors of life are juxtaposed against the solemn, earthen tones of the graveyard forming the backbone of the Dia De Los Muertos folk art aesthetic.
Mexico City based animation studio Llamarada created this vibrant animated short, capturing that colorfully creepy Day of the Dead feel by projecting animated characters onto tombstones in Mexico’s largest cemetery, Panteon de Dolores.
Life hacks have always been around, but before the internet they were called tips, tricks, or helpful hints.
There’s a common misconception that people are just now coming up with a lot of these helpful hacks, like this simple method for removing splinters:
"Fill a wide mouthed bottle with hot water nearly to the brim, and press affected part of hand tightly against mouth of bottle. The suction will pull down the flesh, and steam will soon draw out the splinter."
Simple, ain't it? This tip came from a card included with a pack of Gallaher's Cigarettes around the turn of the 20th century, so if you've ever wondered where people posting hacks online came up with the idea it might have been from a hundred year old pack of smokes:
The life hacks presented on these cigarette cards were generally split into two categories- outdoor survival and household hints. The household hints are still pretty helpful, like this recipe for a homemade fire extinguisher:
"Dissolve one pound of salt and half a pound of sal-ammoniac in two quarts of water and bottle the liquor in thin glass bottles holding about a quart each. Should a fire break out, dash one or more of the bottles into the flames, and any serious outbreak will probably be averted."
However, the survival set will probably only come in handy if you're an avid outdoorsperson, or you're trying to survive in a post-apocalyptic world:
Most kids don’t look forward to school picture days, the pictures are taken for their parent’s sake after all, but those wonderful kids who look forward to the experience are destined to grow up to be superstars:
After all, karate masters and roller dancing superstars aren't allowed to do their thing on school grounds, and when parents let their superstar kids shine after school the photographic memories are priceless!:
People are mighty passionate about their breakfast cereal, and whether they eat it for breakfast, a late night snack or all day, every day like an adult-sized kid every cereal eater has their favorite brands.
The only problem with being so enamored with cereal is the fact that your favorite brand might disappear from the market one day, leaving your bowl empty and alone and your spoon without a purpose in life.
This cereal changeup was especially hard on 80s kids, who were spoiled by the amazing selection of cartoon and celebrity endorsed cereals we thought we couldn't live without...until they were pulled from the shelves:
Take a trip down memory lane with these 15 Cereal Brands We Want Back, they'll make you hungry for a bowl of fun shaped crunchy corn and oat, and you'll see how boring most cereals have become by comparison.
Pepe is a dog who enjoys the finer things in life- a good bone, some wet food mixed in with his kibble, a refreshing run through the dog park, a comfy bed, and the time honored canine tradition of sniffing butts. He enjoyed sniffing doggy backsides more than he liked actually meeting other dogs, so when he was stuck at home alone he often found himself jonesing for a good sniff. Then one day his owner brought home a strange looking gun, which Pepe knocked down when his owner wasn't looking, and the gun created a portal, which made Pepe's dreams come true...

People kept telling him that his helmet looked like an eight ball, and since he wasn't familiar with the game of pool played by earthlings or the magical fortune telling toy he kept taking offense to this comparison. Then he discovered how magical the 8 ball could be, and how it was able to tell the future with a 95% accuracy, so Darth decided to embrace the eight ball energy and have the number 8 painted on the back of his helmet, for good luck.

Fans across the world were saddened by the news that Studio Ghibli would soon be closing their doors and its grand creator Hayao Miyazaki retiring, except now it seems they're just taking a break and Miyazaki may not retire after all.
However, the mere thought of Studio Ghibli closing has inspired artists and animators to pay tribute to the influence Ghibli has had on their artistic lives.
It may come as no surprise that 3D renders and digital artwork are being used in place of photos in catalogs and magazines nowadays, because using 3D software to create an interior scene is generally cheaper and easier than setting up an actual photo shoot.
Companies like IKEA want to ensure the images in their catalogs look just right, without having to put together an entire interior space every time they need a photo, and this convenience has led to IKEA slowly but surely replacing the real photos in their catalogs with 3D renders.
