Wish List: A $400,000 Cookie-Baking Robot

 

It’s good to know the folks at MIT have the best minds of our generation focused on what’s really important: a robot who can bake cookies named BakeBot. Don’t expect your own private C3PO to be baking a fresh batch of Snickerdoodles anytime soon, though. The price tag on a cookie-baking robot is $400,000, The New York Times reports. The only person who is going to have a BakeBot will be P. Diddy. [YouTube via New York Times] Keep reading »

The ‘Stached Stallion

Meet Alfie, the horse with the rare mustache. When this stallion’s ‘stache started to sprout, his groomer tried to trim him but Alfie refused, bolting across the stable to avoid the scissors. “It was bizarre when I first saw it and my first inkling was we need to shave it off. But he does not let you anywhere near it … He is a very headstrong horse and he is very proud of his mustache,” she said of her decision to honor Alfie’s wishes to let his mo grow. I am totally digging his ‘stache. It would be a shame to see it go. I say, “You can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make him shave.” [Metro UK] Keep reading »

Keep Your Hands Off Her “Food Baby”

I often get a post-meal pooch, especially after I’ve shoved down, say, a foot-long hoagie. The bloated, pregnancy looking pouch that used to be my stomach is a phenomenon commonly referred to as a “food baby.” Sometimes I call mine “the bagel” because if I squeeze it, it looks like a bagel. I know this is something women love to joke about to assuage their guilt after totally pigging out or to express their discomfort at having to unbutton their pants after an eating marathon.

But, apparently, “food babies”are a real problem for some. Keep reading »

16 Strange Celebrity Phobias

16 Strange Celebrity Phobias

Matt Damon and I are pretty much not alike at all, but one thing we could bond over: we both hate snakes. Apparently Damon was so squeamish around the reptiles on the set of his new movie “We Bought a Zoo,” that his co-star Scarlett Johansson made fun of him.  “He was definitely sweating a bit, and maybe the sweat formed in the corner of his eye,” she told People. “I said, ‘Matt, these kids are practically juggling the snakes. Hold it together.’” Johansson recalled watching Damon “cry like a baby and rock back and forth when the snakes were spread all over the set.”

Hey, lay off him Scarlett! I’m right there with you, Matt. Snakes are just not right. Click through to check out some other notable — and notably strange — celeb phobias.

What Tiny Living Really Looks Like


Not going to lie, watching Manhattan architect Luke Clark Tyler, who lives in a 76 square foot apartment, talk about his living space kind of gave me heart palpitations. I get a little queasy and claustrophobic when i think about being in a tiny room like that. I hate confined spaces! Also, $800 is A LOT of money to pay for such a small apartment — even in New York City. Okay, I need to walk away from this video now and go breathe into a paper bag. [Hit Dan Back] Keep reading »

94-Year-Old Woman Whoops A Kangaroo’s Ass

Over the weekend, in Queensland, Australia, a kangaroo named Eddie busted out of a gate and attacked a 94-year-old woman. Our first question: “Why was a kangaroo in Australia behind a gate anyway?” We’re not big fans of humans messing with wild animals (RIP Steve Irwin), but there is an explanation. Keep reading »

What Is Bad Ass? Alex Trebek Chases Burglar, Injures Achilles Tendon

Alex Trebek is gangsta. The “Jeopardy” host—who’s been doing his gig for 27 years now, by the way—showed up at an event yesterday on crutches. Naturally, the press wanted to know what happened. The answer: “What is a thwarted robbery?” Apparently, Trebek woke up in the middle of the night and found a burglar rummaging through his stuff in his hotel room. He may be 70, but he wasn’t about to let the thief get away. So he chased her. Alek explained, “It happened at 2:30 a.m., chasing a burglar down the hallway of my San Francisco hotel when my Achilles tendon ruptured and I then fell on carpet, bruising the other leg in process.” He’ll be having surgery on Friday.

Now, the skeptic in me immediately thought, He probably fell down the stairs, and came up with a hero story that sounded way cooler. But this story has been confirmed. Keep reading »

Today In Terribleness: A Woman Is Framed For Armed Robbery By Her Ex

Meet Seemona Sumasar. She is 36 years old, a mother, and a former Morgan Stanley analyst who managed a restaurant in Queens. One night about two years ago, her Jeep was pulled over by police. She was shocked to be arrested. “You know you did it. Just admit it,” a police officer threatened her.

“It” was a string of armed robberies. Specifically, ones where a woman approached victims wearing a policewoman’s uniform and then turned her gun on them. Only Sumasar hadn’t done “it.” “It” had never actually happened. Keep reading »
