How can GOP complain about Obama not accomplishing anything when their main goal is to obstruct his every move?
Looks good, right?
Not so much.
This designer is a genius. Snap all the edges together at the sides and you have a bicycle helmet that fits your head exactly. When you’re done, flatten it out and put it in your bag!

Chewing Gum Art: Turning Blobs on the Sidewalk into Intricate Paintings
For his canvases, English artist Ben Wilson has used thousands of blobs of bubble gum that have been spat out on the pavement and stepped on. He softens the gum with a blowtorch, sprays it with lacquer, and then applies 3 coats of enamel. Using tiny brushes, he quick-dries his work with a cigarette lighter as he goes along. The result? Bright, intricate, gorgeous little works of art right where people walk.
This poor little dude is a near-albino seal in Russia (his reddish color is due to an accumulation of iron in his fur) and he is nearly blind. His mother and all the other seals totally rejected him. Fortunately he was discovered by a photographer where he was hiding, waiting for his mother to come feed him. He has now been taken to a facility that will care for him. Technically you aren’t supposed to interfere with Mother Nature, but I’m glad they didn’t just let Little Ginger Dude starve to death.
These are not PhotoShopped!
A Dutch flower company figured out how to split the stems of white roses and inject natural dyes into the stems of the flowers as they are growing, producing rainbow petals. You can buy a dozen of these for about $70. Some people think they’re gay, but come on. Rainbows and unicorns are for everyone!
Final paragraphs from an article by Chris Hedges entitled:
A Decade After 9/11: We Are What We Loathe
…We were unable to accept the reality of this anonymous slaughter. We were unable because it exposed the awful truth that we live in a morally neutral universe where human life, including our life, can be snuffed out in senseless and random violence. It showed us that there is no protection, not from God, fate, luck, omens or the state.
We have still not woken up to whom we have become, to the fatal erosion of domestic and international law and the senseless waste of lives, resources and trillions of dollars to wage wars that ultimately we can never win. We do not see that our own faces have become as contorted as the faces of the demented hijackers who seized the three commercial jetliners a decade ago. We do not grasp that Osama bin Laden’s twisted vision of a world of indiscriminate violence and terror has triumphed. The attacks turned us into monsters, grotesque ghouls, sadists and killers who drop bombs on village children and waterboard those we kidnap, strip of their rights and hold for years without due process. We acted before we were able to think. And it is the satanic lust of violence that has us locked in its grip….
We could have gone another route. We could have built on the profound sympathy and empathy that swept through the world following the attacks. The revulsion over the crimes that took place 10 years ago, including in the Muslim world, where I was working in the weeks and months after 9/11, was nearly universal. The attacks, if we had turned them over to intelligence agencies and diplomats, might have opened possibilities not of war and death but ultimately reconciliation and communication, of redressing the wrongs that we commit in the Middle East and that are committed by Israel with our blessing. It was a moment we squandered. Our brutality and triumphalism, the byproducts of nationalism and our infantile pride, revived the jihadist movement. We became the radical Islamist movement’s most effective recruiting tool. We descended to its barbarity. We became terrorists too. The sad legacy of 9/11 is that the assholes, on each side, won.

By now you probably know there is a new movie starring Matt Damon and others about a virus that decimates the population of the Earth. Matt Damon’s character is immune, but unfortunately all the members of his family are not.
The geniuses behind marketing the movie created giant billboards like petri dishes that started out white. Gradually they developed bacterial and fungal growth until they were encrusted with bulbous colonies of differently-colored microbes. Eventually the letters CONTAGION became clear because they were covered with black, encrusted, oozing colonies of who-knows-what.
This movie scares the hell out of me, and the producers of the billboard at Warner Brothers deserve props for terrifying us before we even enter the theater.
A video of the whole process is available at http://www.digitaltrends.com/movies/contagions-bacteria-billboard-will-give-you-an-immediate-urge-to-wash-your-hands/ A good time to have Purell around.
OK, these noodles were PRINTED. You put “food ink” into a printer and you can make pretty much anything you want, including food with messages inside, or vegetables shaped like the space shuttle. This gives a whole new meaning to “eat your peas.”
