Note: Larger version HERE.

These are all the Stranger Things season two episodes reimagined as vintage paperback horror book covers by Brazilian artist Butcher Billy. As far as things like this go, I feel like this was well executed. Maybe you disagree. I doubt it though, you and I have a connection. I bet we could finish each other's sentences all day long if we wanted to, but we don't want to because that would get annoying quick and next thing you know we're trying to beat the shit out of each other-- "On the sidewalk in front of a Burger King." That's it, COME AT ME.

Thanks to Dapper Don, who's convinced Burger King and Dairy Queen once had a thing and spawned Jack In The Box.

Saleswomen Quickly Demonstrate A Thousand Different Ways To Wear A Magical Scarf

November 17, 2017

These are two videos from China of saleswomen quickly demonstrating the incredible versatility of a magical scarf garment (possibly inspired by the Thneed from Dr. Seuss's The Lorax). It can be worn as a scarf, shawl, vest, hat, hood, skirt, and a bunch of things I don't even know what to call -- the possibilities are endless. Unfortunately, apparently it can't be the only thing you wear to a job interview (I went with a beanie and cape combo), or at least that's what security said when they refused to let me into the building. Whatever, I don't want to work for a company that doesn't want me to be myself anyways.

Navy Admits To Wiener Drawing In The Sky Above Washington

November 17, 2017

The Navy has confirmed that one of its aircrews stationed at Whidbey Island was responsible for skydrawing a crude penis above Okanogan County in Washington state. A lot of people in the area took pictures of the wiener (that must have been an awesome ride home on the school bus), and the Navy is investigating further, saying "The Navy holds its aircrew to the highest standards and we find this absolutely unacceptable, of zero training value [Editor's Note: that's debatable] and we are holding the crew accountable." Wow, so apparently this is frowned upon. Just not in my book. In my book that is ear-to-ear smiled upon and an omen of good fortune and a bountiful harvest.

What The Hell Was That?: Puppet Teddy Bear Struggles To Serve Drinks To Customers At Japanese Restaurant

November 17, 2017

Note: Keep your volume in check, screaming.

This is a video from a restaurant in Japan where a teddy bear tries to deliver drinks to patrons, but struggles to do so, eventually screaming and getting crushed under the weight of the tray. That...is not what I had in mind when I said I'd like to go to dinner and a show. I generally frown on screaming in restaurants. Unless it's a couple breaking up on their anniversary, in which case I want a front-row seat and if there's any VIP or backstage passes available I'm buying them.

Tesla's Second Generation Roadster Doing 0 - 60 In 1.9 Seconds

November 17, 2017

Elon Musk has announced Tesla's second generation Roadster will be the fastest production car to date, with a 0 - 60 time of 1.9 seconds (the first under 2). The car is expected to cost around $200,000 and be released in 2020, or just about a year after the world ends.

He also said the new Roadster would climb from 0 to 100 mph in 4.2 seconds, and will clear the quarter mile in 8.9 seconds.


Musk said he wouldn't confirm the top speed, but hinted that it was "above 250 mph." By comparison, the Agera RS by Sweden's Koenigsegg currently holds the world record at 277.9 mph.

As fans gasped, Musk said the Roadster had a 200kWh battery pack and a 620-mile range per charge, or over 1,000 kilometers.

The vehicle has three motors (one in the front and two in the rear), all-wheel drive, and torque steering.

0 - 60 in 1.9 seconds. That's fast. Do we really need something that fast? "Well, besides showing off the power of all-electric cars, it could be a penis thing. Sometimes people buy the fastest cars to make up for the smallest packages." Aaaaaaah. Well my car stalls at most stop lights. A lot of times I have to push it. *wink* Know what I'm saying? "You're saying you bought a lemon." Exactly.

Keep going for a promo video, and two videos of the roadster speeding off (the second of which from the cockpit).

Boston Dynamics' Latest ATLAS Humanoid Robot Can Do Backflips

November 17, 2017

Because a new and improved SpotMini human-hunting quadruped robot wasn't enough for us to not be thankful for this holiday season, here's a just-released video from Boston Dynamics of the latest version of their ATLAS humanoid robot doing a little light parkour, then finishing with a backflip. Admittedly, impressive. Just the technology though, the only backflip I'd like to see that robot do is into the deep end of an empty swimming pool. "Or a volcano." Yes! "Or into a vat of acid." Yeah! "Or right onto your naked lap." Yes! Wait what?

Keep going for the video.

Video Of A Neural Network Creating An Infinite Amount Of Anime Girl Faces

November 16, 2017

10 Minutes of Imaginary Japanese Anime Face

This is a ten minute video created by the folks at website MakeGirlsMoe, who used a neural network to constantly morph new anime girl faces. It makes so many characters. I tried to give them all names but I stopped after twenty seconds because I realized I wanted to save my life's greatest accomplishment until I'm a little older so I still have something to look forward to. "You mean you ran out of names." I felt like Anime Girl #'s 1 - 280 just didn't do them justice.

Real Things That Exist: Dead Insect Fingernail Art

November 16, 2017

insect-nail-art-1.jpg

Because everybody's on the hunt for the hottest new craze (my bet's on buttchugging making a comeback), these are several examples of the dead insect nail art created by Nicole Casati of the Deadly Beauty And Nails Studio in Melbourne, Australia (of course Australia). So, yeah, lacquering dead bugs onto your nails is a thing now. A thing I'm going to get filthy rich selling! *stomping* Who wants a roach? I have plenty of them -- all sizes. Mostly really big ones though. Perfect for a giant's toes.

Keep going for several more shots, including at least one gnarly looking cuticle.
