McDonald's French Fries Guitar

The band Doublewide Kings offers this hot and tasty custom guitar originally made by John Bolin of Bolin Guitars. A mere $6,500 will supersize your music.

The little details are nice, such as the golden arches painted onto the fretboard and the slogan "i'm lovin' it" written on the back. And it's completely playable, as you can see in this video:

Creepy Eye Pies

They don't blink, which is unfortunate. That would really ramp up the fright factor. But they do look a lot like humanoid eyes.

Not Quite Nigella was inspired to make these rhubarb pies after a conversation with a friend:

"I'm so hungry I'm going to eat someone's face off!" she said with madness in her eyes, while kneeling dangerously close to my face.
"How long have you been on this diet?" I asked.
"A day," she said solemnly.

If you're going on a face-eating diet, these pies should have a place on your menu.

Guess The Movie Title Based On Its Foreign Title

Can you guess the movie based on its foreign title? It may be perhaps one of the hardest (but fun) tests that I took online. Out of the 14 questions, I only got four (that’s not even half!). But perhaps you’ll fare better than me in the test.

Try it now on Mental Floss.

What’s your score?

Affordable Wellness

It’s important to be healthy. I believe we all know that, but more often than not, we don’t know how to get there. And there are many factors that contribute to this.

One of the factors that hinder us from achieving a healthy lifestyle is the cost of living a healthy lifestyle itself. For example, we have to pay a monthly subscription to a gym near our respective homes. Aside from that, we also have to buy the proper clothes, proper supplements, and proper water. In a way, “being healthy is a luxury,” or at least, that’s what the marketing industry would like to show us.

Thankfully, there are ways to be healthy without a cost. We just have to look around.

A Milk Four Times More Nutritious Than Cow’s Milk

Scientists have discovered a milk which is four times more nutritious than cow’s milk, and they have been eyeing this milk to become the new superfood that could be the key to feed our ever-expanding population. However, you might this a bit shocking. It’s cockroach milk.

A team from the Institute of Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine in India has sequenced a protein crystal from the gut of Diploptera punctata (Pacific Beetle Cockroach), the only known cockroach to give birth to live young. To feed its offspring, the roach also produces a milk-like substance with protein crystals which have three times the energy of buffalo milk.

So are we to milk a cockroach now? Thankfully, that’s not necessarily the case.

Before you start imagining how you can milk a cockroach, the scientists have dismissed such an option and are instead sequencing the genes responsible for the production of milk protein crystals.

Whew! Thank God.

Eco-Anxiety: How Climate Change Affects Mental Health

Climate change surely have changed the world that we live in in many different ways. Storms, fires, and droughts now have worsened over the course of time. Climate change not only affects the physical world, however, as it also affects the mental health of people who witness it.

It was recently declared by the Australian Medical Association (AMA) that climate change is a health emergency. Other medical bodies around the world also reflect similar positions as the AMA.

The AMA’s statement highlights the significant impacts climate change is having on physical health, including an increase in climate-related deaths. The World Health Organisation regards climate change as “the greatest threat to global health in the 21st Century”.
Climate change can affect people’s mental health in a number of ways, both directly and indirectly.
We know experiencing extreme weather events is a risk factor for mental illness. And many thousands of people around the world are displaced from their homes as a result of climate events, putting them at perhaps even higher risk of mental illness.
More generally, people feeling distressed about the state of the planet may find themselves in a spiral of what’s been termed “eco-anxiety”.

Rihanna Is From Jamaica, Not From Barbados, Jamaican Netizens Campaigns

Rihanna is well-known as a celebrity from Barbados. She has an official ambassador position, even! But Jamaican Twitter has a different idea on the famous star’s place of origin. Since the rest of the world is so ignorant about the Caribbean, except that Rihanna’s from there, Jamaicans can tell the world that Rihanna is actually from Jamaica, and the world wouldn’t know better. 

This joke has set fire to the Twitter campaign, #RihannaIsJamaican which featured participants who have constructed Jamaican Rihanna’s entire biography, edited her Wikipedia page, and edited photoshopped versions of her passport and Jamaican currency.

A Possible Explanation Why Obesity and Asthma are Linked

Obese and overweight people worry about the fat around their bellies. According to a recent study which came out Thursday, however, that is not the only thing which they should be worried about. The study suggests that fat can build up in a person’s lung airways as well. This discovery may help in explaining why some health problems like asthma are more common or worse in obese and overweight people.

Researchers from Australia, New Zealand, and Canada teamed up for the study. They looked at data from an earlier project that collected lung tissue samples from people in Alberta, Canada who had been diagnosed with asthma and had died recently. This set included people who died because of their asthma as well as those who died of unrelated causes. Then they compared these samples to a control group taken from people without asthma who had died of other causes.
All told, more than 1,300 samples of the lung’s airway walls were looked at under a microscope, taken from 52 people. The authors found fat tissue in the lungs of all three groups, but those who were overweight and obese had, on average, greater levels of lung fat than everyone else. As BMI increased, the chances of more fat in the lung also increased, and both greater BMI and lung fat was linked to greater thickness and inflammation of the lung airways.
