The Time Morrissey Ruined Bill Cosby's Appearance On The Tonight Show

The Tonight Show starring Johnny Carson played host to many big names with equally big egos to match, but on June 4, 1991 one big head obscured the rest- Steven Patrick Morrissey, aka The Moz.

This star studded episode featured Bill Cosby, Beau Bridges and musical act Morrissey, and even though Cosby and Bridges were huge stars, they simply couldn't find their way out of Morrissey's shadow.

For Morrissey had just finished his first U.S. Tour after cancelling his last show in Austin because the crowds had grown too rowdy, and those who couldn't make it to a show descended upon NBC studios in Burbank.

The rowdy fans ruined Carson's monologue, making him mighty grumpy, but Cosby soldiered on by adding Morrissey references to his jokes, which won the Moz fans over for a minute- until it was time for Morrissey to perform.

As Morrissey performed Sing Your Life and There Is A Place In Hell the crowd went bananas, taking the show out of Carson's control.

When they inexplicably segued to Beau Bridges after Moz's performance it was clear the audience was lost, leaving Carson to get revenge the only way he knew how- by not thanking Morrissey for being his guest at the end of the show.

Surreal 16th Century Illustrations Of Eye Diseases Caused By Witchcraft

Back in the simpler days of “science” people often believed maladies were inflicted upon their bodies by witches, who used evil spells to terrorize the good Christian folk on behalf of Satan.

Belief in witchcraft was extremely common in the 16th century, and yet the Scientific Revolution was making people seek more concrete explanations for their afflictions.

German physician Georg Bartisch attempted to provide these answers with his illustrations, and he spent his whole life studying eye diseases and their cures and became a pioneer in the field of ophthalmology. 

Georg also believed witchcraft was often the cause of eye disease, and thought horoscopes and astrological charts were an important part of diagnosing and curing these diseases.

The Epic Mego Action Figure Playsets Of The 1970s

Action figure sales started climbing in the 1960s thanks to the deployment of G. I. Joe, and by the 1970s the action figure industry was set to conquer the world of toys.

But as more kids got into collecting those action packed pieces of plastic, and more of their favorite franchises received toy treatments, their figures needed a place to play.

The epic playsets created by toy companies like Mego introduced the idea of using a colorful and highly detailed set to take action figure playtime to the next level, giving kids a stage so they can let their imagination run wild.

The Mego playsets were particularly popular because they were freakin' HUGE!

They were also faithful to the source material and full of little artistic touches for kids to discover as they took action figures on a tour of their new digs.

Toddler Has A Hilarious Reaction To His Grandpa's Roar

The world can be a wondrous and terrifying place for toddlers, as they start to explore on two shaky legs and learn to approach that great big world full of adults with caution.

But there's one lesson many little tots don't learn until it's too late- don't come running every time your mommy calls.

Little Jack learned this lesson the hard way, and during the filming of this video he also learned to watch out for grandpa's gruff side.

I hope Jack grows up to be a prankster and gets his grandpa back good!

Beautiful Documentary About The Intense Onbashira Matsuri Festival

Japanese festivals are almost always based around a shrine, and the festival is seen as a way of renewing or blessing the shrine through art, ceremony and mass prayer.

But the Onbashira Matsuri, or Sacred Pillars festival, is different than the rest because it features lumberjacking, brawling, swimming and extremely dangerous log riding portions not for the faint of heart.

(Vimeo Link)

This wonderful video by OH! MATSURi concisely captures the feel of this rare festival, which is held near Lake Suwa in Nagano every six years and has supposedly continued uninterrupted for the last 1200 years.

I could see a festival like Onbashira catching on in the Pacific Northwest, only with less praying and more drinking.

A Live Action Re-Enactment Of The Hobbit's Battle Of Five Armies

There are lots of different games based on the writings of J. R. R. Tolkien, games that allow players to participate in classic battles from the books, such as the Battle of Five Armies from The Hobbit.

But there's nothing like the smell of nerdiness in the air as you and your costumed compatriots battle it out in live action, and LARPers in the Czech Republic don't mess around when it comes to re-enactments.

They staged an epic Battle Of Five Armies in a forest near the town of Doksy, Czech Republic, but this wasn't your average duct tape and cardboard LARPing crowd- these guys came to fight hard in detailed costumes and full makeup.

Photographer David W. Cerny was on the scene when the most epic battle in LARP history took place, and a good time was had by the several hundred who took part in the event, although it proved to be a bit too much fun for some.

Sometimes Corrupt Files Are Better Off Dead

Coders get a swollen head when they start using their coding skills to save corrupt files from the brink of digital destruction, but some corrupt files should simply be left to Rest In Pixels.

For as this comic from CommitStrip shows us- if a file can be rebuilt from scratch in a tenth of the time needed to recode it back to life then there's no need to call in the coders.

Of course, all of this could have been avoided if the artist simply used a staggered save system... Save often people!

The Richest Families In Florence Have Remained The Richest For Nearly 600 Years

Old Money families often claim that wealth stays with the wealthy, but we've all seen how quickly the winds of fortune can shift, especially in this age of tech stocks and economic turmoil.

But those Old Money families think this way because it's all they know, and for many of them life without wealth is but a bad dream.

In fact, several families in Florence have managed to hold on tight to their fortunes for nearly 600 years, according to research conducted by Italian economists Guglielmo Barone and Sauro Mocetti.

Using tax records from the 1427 Census of Florence all the way through the 2011 fiscal year Barone and Mocetti discovered the richest families in Florence have had the same surnames for the last 600 years.

This system wouldn't really work in most other cities in the world, but Florencian family surnames are "usually highly regional and tend to pass on linearly", so they're most likely part of the same rich families six centuries later.

This Strange Device Is The Future Of Gunshot Wound Treatment Technology

(Image Link)

Patching up a gunshot wound can be really tricky, and even experienced surgeons sometimes find it quite difficult to stop the bleeding, which complicates the entire surgery.

Add in the fact that many gunshot wound victims bleed out before they even make it to the hospital and you'll see how important it can be to plug up a gunshot wound as quickly as possible.

This is the thought behind the XSTAT by RevMedx, the sponge-filled dressing device that plugs up a gunshot wound with “expandable, tablet-sized sponges” that serve as a Rapid Hemostasis System.

The sponges are injected into the wound site, where they expand and effectively stop blood loss until the victim can receive proper treatment.

The XSTAT was approved for military use in 2014, and it recently saved a soldier who would have bled out if it weren't for the XSTAT:

The femoral artery and vein were transected and damage to the femur and soft tissue left a sizable cavity in the leg. After a self-applied tourniquet stopped the bleeding, the patient was transferred to an FST for evaluation and treatment. After proximal and distal control of the vessel was achieved, several hours were spent by the team trying to control residual bleeding from the bone and accessory vessels. Throughout the course of the roughly 7-hour surgery, multiple attempts at using bone wax and cautery on the bleeding sites were unsuccessfull and the patient received multiple units of blood and plasma. Eventually, the FST team opted to use XSTAT and applied a single XSTAT device to the femoral cavity— resulting in nearly immediate hemostasis. The patient was stabilized and eventually transported to a definitive care facility.

Blacksmiths Create Propane Powered Replica Of Voltron's Blazing Sword

As far as fictional swords go Voltron's flame-spitting Blazing Sword is definitely one of the coolest in the cartoon galaxy. Of course, it doesn't hurt that it exudes fiery energy, an attribute that makes it seemingly impossible for fans to replicate.

Enter Man At Arms: Reforged, the geeky guys who forge the fictional swords we've dreamed about wielding since we were kids.

The Man At Arms crew managed to make a propane powered replica that is fully functional and always on fire, meaning it's actually capable of defending the universe.

Marvel Heroes Who Are More Villainous Than The Villains

Marvel made their mark on the comic book industry by creating complex characters with lots of depth and storylines adults would enjoy reading nearly as much as the youngsters.

Some of Marvel's characters are so complex it's hard to decide whether they're the good guys or the bad, or an anti-hero purposely bridging the gap between the two sides.

Take Professor X for instance- he's the founder and leader of the X-Men who is responsible for protecting mutants from mankind (and vice versa) so we naturally think of him as a good guy.

And yet we discover the Prof has a dark side when he tries to psychically murder Magneto and instead combines with him to form the super-killer Onslaught.

Plus, during the Deadly Genesis series, we find out Xavier "used the abduction of the original X-Men by the living island Krakoa as an instrument to discard the first-generation X-Men of 1963".

On the other hand, it's hard to tell if Nick Fury is a hero or villain because he walks a thin line between good and bad and never hesitates to put a bullet in anyone, hero or villain, who stands in his way.

But who could have known he would kill an innocent extraterrestrial being just to catch a villain?

Nick Fury's murder of the Watcher Uatu in the Original Sin series proved he is truly Marvel's most morally ambiguous character, a guy who's not afraid to get dark if it means getting his way.

Artist Who Lost His Arm Now Has World's First Tattoo Machine Prosthetic

Artists who lose the use of their arms or hands often feel like their artistic careers are over, which is totally understandable considering how important hands are to an artist.

So when JC Sheitan Tenet lost his arm in an accident 22 years ago he thought he'd have to give up his dream of being a tattoo artist, but thanks to this incredible prosthetic arm he's now able to ink at will.

JC's amazing prosthetic arm was created by French artist/engineer JL Gonzal, who modified a normal prosthetic to accommodate a tattoo gun, and Gonzal has sworn to improve the design to give JC a more natural feel when he inks.

Gonzal's prosthetic arm may be in the early stages of development but it sure looks sharp!

Illustrations Of Spells And Potions From The Harry Potter Series

Fans of the Harry Potter series know how hard it can be to stop yelling casting spells at your friends once you've learned a few of those fun to say spells.

Your friend asks you for a ride to the store and you reply “Avada Kedavra” with a wicked gleam in your eye, or you smile and cast “Orchideous” to appease an angry partner with a magical bouquet.

Illustrator Gabriel Picolo knows those magical feels full well, which is why he was compelled to start sketching out visualizations of spells and potions so Muggles can see why they shouldn't trifle with the magical arts.

Guy Visits Locations From Famous Movies To Show How They Look Now

When real world locations are used as locations in iconic movies they become equally iconic, especially to those who live in the town where movies like Fight Club, Back To The Future and Ghostbusters were filmed.

And thanks to the internet it's easy for fans to find out where these locations are located, with the map apps in their smartphones making locating the locations a snap.

But visiting locations involves leaving the house, which cuts into your movie watching time, so if you really want to see what those iconic film locations look like nowadays you should just follow Phil Grishayev on Instagram.

Phil travels to all kinds of cool places to educate his fellow cinephiles through his photos, revealing earth-shattering facts like the jackhammer scene in Ghostbusters 2 was actually filmed in Los Angeles, or that this iconic shot from Halloween was filmed in Pasadena.

Apparently Phil's travels don't take him much farther than Pomona, even though it seems like he's in New York, Miami or Aurora, Illinois. So if you want to nerd out like Phil just schwing on over to L.A.!

Daredevil Skateboarding On A Giant Yugoslav Monument

Skateboarders love to find new ways to take it to the limit, and their board is so light they can carry it with them wherever they go, so if they can climb it they can skate it.

Slovenian skaters Jan Robek and Miha Miklavcic stared up at the hulking concrete World War II monument created by Macedonian sculptor Dusan Dzamonja and saw the perfect ramp- if they could make it to the top.

One short yet slightly scary climb later and they were making skateboarding history with the photos to prove it, skating free and praying they don't fall off.

Lion Looks Like He's Hunting Little Boy At Japanese Zoo

This Toy Story Voltron Figure Takes Playtime Well Beyond Infinity

If the toys featured in Pixar's Toy Story were shown an old giant robot anime series called Voltron they may have considered undergoing some radical plastic body modifications so they could link up in style.

Sadly, this concept never occurred to Buzz, Woody and the rest of the gang, but some clever toy designer was clearly thinking outside the toy box when they designed this Toy Story Voltron figure.

This amazing Chogokin combiner set from Tamashii Nations features transformable versions of Woody, Hamm, Rex, Slinky Dog and Woody's faithful horse Bullseye that can link up and form the ultimate robotic force for toy justice.

Man, I wish I had a Voltron figure this cool when I was a kid, I couldn't even afford a real Voltron so I had to settle for the swap meet Robo-Cat version.

Surveillance Camera Footage Catches Kid Stealing Hugs From Dog

Kids who don't have pets of their own must find creative ways to get some pet love, even if it involves some light breaking and entering.

Surveillance camera footage shot by homeowner Hollie Mallet caught a young man named Josh in the act of stealing hugs from Hollie's well trained black Lab Dutchess, which totally stole her heart.

Hollie asked her neighbors if they knew who the little boy was, and Josh's mom Ginger came forward to confess it was her son who had been stealing hugs from Dutchess.

Now Josh and Dutchess are free to hang out whenever they'd like, and Josh no longer has to go into ninja mode when he feels like hangin' with his favorite furry neighbor.

But Frank was actually anti-drug, and neither took drugs nor allowed drug users in his bands, which is why these anti-drug PSAs were a labor of love rather than a court ordered punishment.
