13 Apps Perfect For Weirdos Like Us

I’m weird. I’m very weird. I’m proud of how weird I am. You’re probably weird, too. I think everyone is weird in their own unique way. Like snowflakes. When I found out that there was a BellyButton app for my iPhone, my first reaction was, “I want it.” It does nothing but show pictures of belly buttons. That’s it. The iTunes store review of it says, “Pointless, bizarre, and strangely amusing.” That’s really all I’m looking for in an app. In life, really.

If belly buttons aren’t your thing, there’s a whole world of bizarre apps to entertain oddballs like you and me. I found a whole bunch of them just for us.

The 10 Most Instagrammed Things Of Every Year Ever

So, the list of the most Instagrammed places in the world for 2012 has been released. The Bangkok Airport came in at #1, and the rest of the spots–Disneyland, the Eiffel Tower, Times Square–are pretty predictable, but focusing on the most popular places leaves out some really iconic Instagram photo subjects. I mean, where are the freshly manicured hands, adorable cat faces, and triumphant stacks of pancakes? Obviously we needed to compile a companion list of the 10 Most Instagrammed Things Of The Year (and every year for all eternity, most likely) — and nearly every single one is accompanied by pictures from our Amelia’s own Instagram account. Here we go…

Two weeks ago, The New York Times ran an enormous article about a rape case in Steubenville, Ohio, where members of the football team participated in the rape of a drunk girl in August. Images and videos captured the night, when a 15-year-old drunk girl was carried to multiple parties, raped and peed upon. Two 16-year-old boys were arrested and charged with rape and kidnapping. Many other students — including Steubenville football players — were said to have participated and are supposedly being coddled by police and their community. You can read the full, difficult, sordid story from the Times here.

Now, Internet vigilante groups — hactivists — have taken over the football team’s website and are threatening to make many of those involved pay by releasing private info online. Keep reading »

I can’t be the only Mac addict whose iPhone gets lost over the course of the day somewhere underneath the mail, lip balms, and napkins in my purse. How am I supposed to respond to my What’s App? messages within 12 seconds of receiving them if I can’t find my phone?! Rest assured, because there’s an adorable kittycat iPhone stand from ModCloth to help. Now I can vie for the title of office cat lady and see my phone at all times. [$17.99, ModCloth]

OMFG! I’ve discovered the most worthwhile way to waste time EVER. Amelia informed me that a Tyra Banks Smize Yourself! app existed and of course, I purchased it immediately.

Basically, you line up your face in a cut out and then you smize into the camera while Tyra tells you how “fierce” you look. (I know this to be a blatant lie because I’m working from home today and and haven’t brushed my hair or put on any makeup.) Then Tyra’s tells you that she’s “cooking up your smize.” Then you wait and about 30 seconds later a bad picture of yourself is transformed into an even worse picture of you looking like some kind of deranged fucking alien that Tim Burton shat out.

How The Amazing Nerds At NASA Would Cook A Thanksgiving Turkey

Seriously, could NASA get any cooler? They’re landing rovers on Mars, mapping out the galaxy, and studying dark energy, all while rocking star-spangled mohawks. The folks over at Gizmodo were curious to see how those zany NASA scientists might use their high tech toys to cook a turkey this Thanksgiving. The resulting recipes, drawn up by illustrator Josh McKible, will definitely come in handy in the event your oven breaks tomorrow and you must make do with nothing more than some aluminum-coated kapton and an R-2000 Rotopod. Click here to see more diagrams and get the full recipes (one of which requires 12,000 turkeys and a Thermal Vac Chamber). And NASA, we don’t say it enough, but we are so, so thankful for you!
