A Real Live Flying House!


Two engineers were so taken by the scene from “Up” where the house takes flight that they tried to recreate it for a new National Geographic series “How Hard Can It Be?” The answer is that it was very hard, but possible. After inflating many, many giant balloons, the miniature yellow house did lift off. Someday, I plan to travel by flying house like Carl did, so it’s good to know it’s possible.

The First Legit Extraterrestrial

Well, here it is folks. The first confirmed alien. It’s a strand of fossilized bacteria found in a meteor. Not what I expected ET to look like, but hey. NASA scientists now believe that there is other life out in the big, bad universe. [Buzzfeed]

UPDATE: Sigh. As excited as I was about aliens, it turns out that this little strand of bacteria is a bunch of BS. Keep reading »

10 ’90s-Era Bands We Want New Albums From

DIY Tattoo From God, Anyone?

Chris Eckert’s Auto Ink DIY tattoo machine will grace you with some ink via divine intervention:

Auto Ink is a three axis numerically controlled sculpture. Once the main switch is triggered, the operator is assigned a religion and it’s corresponding symbol is tattooed onto the person’s arm. The operator does not have control over the assigned symbol. It is assigned either randomly or through divine intervention, depending on your personal beliefs.

I’m not going to pretend to know what that means or how the dang thing works. I’m no physicist. My personal belief is that I should choose my own tattoo. I believe in free will. So that’s a NO THANKS for me. [The Daily What] Keep reading »

Explore Uncharted Waters With Audrina Patridge


This promo for Audrina Patridge’s new VH1 reality show, “Audrina,” which premieres April 17, is absolutely captivating. I just lost five brain cells, but I can’t wait to spend lots of time watching Audrina swim and tan her way through her complicated Orange County existence. Oh, and I hope her drunk mother, Lynn, gets plenty of screen time. Hooray for high-quality reality programming! Long live trash TV! [People] Keep reading »

Decode My Dream: A Visit From A Deceased Dad

I had a dream recently that I can’t seem to make sense of. In my dream, I was on the porch of another home, not the one I currently live in. It was snowing very heavy, which is unusual in southern Alabama, where I live. There were several people, friends and family, walking in with such joy and happiness. My sister walked up and handed me a framed photo of herself as she passed by and walked into the house. As I looked at the picture, my eyes began to water as if I was crying and I turned to look to my side and there stood our dad who passed away 10 years ago. He looked at me and said, “That’s right baby, this is the last one.” I looked away and when I looked back he was gone. At that point, I woke up very shaken. I have had dreams before that actually came true in my life and this one has me very disturbed. Can you please give me some insight? — Missing Dad

Now You Can Buy Bridal Wear In Bulk

A bridal salon at Costo? Perfect! So now you can buy 5,000 bars of soap, 10 gallons of olive oil, 24 pairs of new socks, and your wedding gown all in one trip. Not to mention all the free samples you can munch on while you deliberate. Kirstie Kelly’s signature bridal collection will be popping up in various Los Angeles area Costcos for the budget-conscious bride. The collection of six couture gowns range in price from $699 to $1399 and come in sizes 2 to 24. Not that I have to shop for a bridal gown anytime in the imminent future, but if I did, I wouldn’t be opposed to purchasing it at Costco. How about you? Would you get your wedding dress at Costco?

Got Issues? Discuss Them With Your Naked Therapist

Twenty-four year old New York City shrink, Sarah White, felt there was something missing from the classical therapy tradition. And that thing was getting buck naked. According to her, talking about your problems while fully clothed encourages repression instead of open expression. That’s how she became “the naked therapist.” Sarah begins her sessions, which occur via webcam, Skype, or in person, fully clothed and by the end of the hour she is in her birthday suit. (Video is slightly NSFW.) Not surprisingly, she has lots of male clients, who, she claims, find it easier to introspect while watching her strip down to her skivies. Duh. Of course she has her male clients’ full attention while she’s naked. SHE’S NAKED! A guy will say just about anything you want him to while sitting across from an attractive woman in the buff.

How Do You Stack Up Against The World’s Most Typical Person?

A little science for ya, about the world’s most typical person. National Geographic did some really extensive research of seven billion people to find out what a average human is like. As I suspected, I am completely atypical. I’m a left-handed female with a bank account who uses way too much water, not a 28-year-old Chinese man. Very fascinating. [The Hairpin] Keep reading »

Your Personality According To Corn On The Cob

I never knew a corn on the cob could be so revealing. What kind of person are you if you cut the corn off the cob and onto your plate because you don’t want all that crap caught in your teeth? A person very concerned about dental hygiene, that’s who. [Buzzfeed] Keep reading »
