Is This A Demonic Toast?

Some objects are supposed to look normal, but there are some cases where people can see them quite differently. For Japanese Twitter user Reira, their egg toast looks like less of a tasty treat and more of an occult object. I can’t blame Reira for being slightly scared, when their toast reminds me of the eye from Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood. Scary!

A Shock To Remember

People who have been electrically shocked will tell you that it is a terrible experience. But it is not always the case, as there are electric shocks that are nice, such as this one from China. So if you’re into doing extreme stuff, you might find this to be “an offer too good to re-fuse”.

Teacher Knits Dolls of Her Students

The Netherlands — Because the school that she teaches in was closed due to current circumstances, primary school teacher Ingeborg Meinster-Van der Duin deeply missed her students. So that she doesn’t have to miss her students, der Duin decided to knit herself dolls that resemble them. She then sent photos of her creations to her students, and most of them said that they recognized themselves in der Duin’s dolls.

Very wholesome!

Try To Identify Composer Names In 60 Seconds

Throughout my lifetime, I had my own share of encounters with the names of prominent composers like Beethoven, Bach, Mozart, Schubert, Lizst, and more. Despite this, however, I only scored 4 out of 29 in this quiz from Classic FM. It seems that they were serious when they asked me to “be prepared to suddenly forget everything you’ve ever known about classical composers…”

Try taking this quiz over at the site and comment your scores down below.

An Honest Trailer for Friends



People all over have been binge-watching Friends during isolation, either because they always meant to see it or they haven't seen it in so long they barely recall it. The show ran for ten seasons, with a total of 236 episodes. While the adventures of six friends in New York was not at all realistic, it was funny. And the editor who cut this Honest Trailer for it should get some kind of award.

The Best Aunt/Uncle Award Goes To…

We’re lucky if our parents don’t chide us for playing games during the quarantine. Hell, we’re lucky if our game save files aren’t deleted without our consent when our parents get mad. It’s also a good amount of luck if we have older relatives who understand our passion for video games. Well this seven-year old kid is lucky to have an understanding aunt/uncle. In a reddit post by MinisterofCute, they shared that when their seven-year-old nephew who plays Animal Crossing: New Horizons was sad that their favorite villager moved out of his island, they made a postcard like the ones that were sent by your villagers in game, as if it was from Bangle, their nephew’s favorite villager.

The Latest on Indiana Jones 5

Raiders of the Lost Ark came out almost 40 years ago. Harrison Ford, who played Indiana Jones, will soon be 78 years old. Yet Indiana Jones is getting another movie, starring Ford. Steven Spielberg, however, is stepping back from directing. Producer Frank Marshall lets us in on how the production is going.  

Currently scheduled to be released by Disney in 2022, Indy 5 originally had Steven Spielberg returning to direct Ford. Since then, we’ve learned that Spielberg has stepped away to allow James Mangold (Logan) to take over directorial duties, the first time anyone other than Spielberg has directed an Indy film. Marshall explained why Mangold was the ideal choice to take over for Spielberg: “His love of the franchise. He’s a wonderful filmmaker. I think he also has a relationship with Harrison. It was all of the right pieces coming together, at the right time.” I must agree with Mr. Marshall — I think Mangold is an expert at twisting old-fashioned genres and tropes with just enough postmodern intrigue to result in comforting yet challenging Hollywood movies. And for those who are still worried about Spielberg’s exit, fear not: “Steven is staying on as a producer, so we’ve got the best of everything.”

What will it be about? No one knows, as they've just started writing the story. Read more about Indiana Jones 5 at Collider. -via Uproxx

Artists Reimagine Sailor Moon And Post Their Artworks On Twitter

With the upcoming Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon: Eternal film, fans of the classic anime are redrawing the face of the main protagonist, Usagi Tsukino (also known as “Serena Tsukino” in some adaptations), in their own style. They have been posting their artwork on social media, along with the hashtag #SailorMoonRedraw.

It all started with this screenshot.
The screenshot in particular is from episode 36 of Sailor Moon S and features the titular character staring in betrayal at another character from the ground.
And although redrawing Sailor Moon characters isn't a new trend, #SailorMoonRedraw suddenly boomed in popularity within the past month.

Check out the various redraws of Sailor Moon over at Mashable.

Which one is your favorite?

Bees Can Make Plants Flower Earlier Than Expected

When bumble bees realize that they are short of pollen, they make the tomato plants flower earlier (sometimes as much as a month) than they would normally do, by biting off the leaves of the said plant. When the researchers attempted to do the same, however, they failed to replicate the results, which suggests that “there is a distinct characteristic to the bees’ biting that stimulates flowers”.

While the bees managed to make the plants flower 30 days earlier, scientists only managed to make them flower five days earlier than they would otherwise.
“We really tried to replicate with the best of our ability,” Prof Consuelo De Moraes, from ETH Zurich, the public research university in Switzerland which conducted the research, told the BBC.
“It's possible that the bees also have some cue that they are providing to the plants that is specific to the bee. And that could be secretions that we don't know about but it's something that we plan to investigate.”

I guess this just goes to show how important bees are on our planet.

This Remote-Controlled Jumbo Jet Looks Deceptively Heavy

Check out this video of Remi Mormino’s 1/26th scale Airbus A-380 captured by RC Media World. Despite it looking deceptively heavy because of its wide wingspan and size, the remote-controlled jet actually only weighs 6.6 pounds (3 kilograms). Mormino skillfully navigates the plane and manages to execute a smooth landing, which was met by applause from the bystanders.

The full specs of the remote-controlled jet can be found in the video’s description.

Wow!

Two Alligators Fight In The Middle of A Golf Course

South Carolina — Last week, Matthew Proffitt was playing golf with his friends at the Golf Club at Hilton Head Lakes in Hardeeville, when they spotted two alligators duking it out on the 18th hole. The alligators were said to have fought for two hours.

One of the animals is spotted chomping on the arm of the other alligator. That animal responds by biting the head of its attacker. The two were then locked in that position for almost the entire brawl. Neither one would let the other go, the video shows.
[...]
Alligators are common in the area, but Profitt had not seen one on the course until that moment.
The course's post on Facebook included the warning, 'Sudden death playoff on the 18 yesterday! Keep your eyes open out there, the course is full of wildlife!'

Unfortunately, the video does not show the whole fight.

I wonder what they fought about.

What do you think?
