40 Perfectly Captured Animal Images Get Turned Into Hilarious Sculptures By Japanese Artist

Japanese artist Scroll down below to check them all out for yourself, and let us know what you think in the comments! #1 Do you know where the concept of memes originally came from? This popular form of communication actually has its roots in academia, and the term was coined by evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins in his famous 1976 book, The Selfish Gene. His original idea of a meme was “a unit of cultural transmission or imitation,” with examples including the concept of God, nursery rhymes and jokes, catchphrases and fashion trends. According to The Conversation, the word “comes from the Greek “mimema”, meaning imitated, which Dawkins supposedly shortened to rhyme with gene; a nod to the similarities between the survival of …

Medieval Sex Cult at Center of German Crossbow Murder Mystery

The storefront window of Torsten Weisss medieval fetish shop in Hachenburg, Germany, is adorned with a mannequin splattered with fake blood sitting open-legged on a counter. A periwinkle blue rope is tied several times around her wrists and neck. Thick silver chains are draped across her shoulders like suspenders. A stained blindfold is pushed up above her eyes. The store offers replicas of ancient weapons like longbows, spears and battle axes alongside Knights Templar flags. It also offers medieval reenactment and jousting classes. Weiss, 53, was the tattooed and pierced owner of the shop, who police say once owned a dog that used to maul and bite other canines to death. Last weekend Weiss found two more female victims, One, …

Everything You Need to Know About The Jenelle Evans/David Eason Dog Fiasco Betches

Teen MomTeen Mom 2Here’s what went down. Last week, David Eason, Jenelle Evans’ husband, purposefully shot and killed their French bulldog Nugget in North Carolina where they live. He now could go to jail for up to 4 months, which honestly seems like too little for such a vile act. Jenelle claimed he killed the dog because it was being aggressive toward Ensley, their 2-year-old daughter, and that she was seriously considering pressing charges against him for it (makes sense). I would press charges if someone gave my dog a weird look on the sidewalk, so David deserves whatever punishment is coming his way.

Minecraft Earth makes the whole real world your very own blocky realm

When your game tops 100 million players, your thoughts naturally turn to doubling that number. That’s the case with the creators, or rather stewards, of Minecraft at Microsoft, where the game has become a product category unto itself. And now it is making its biggest leap yet — to a real-world augmented reality game in the vein of Pokémon GO, called Minecraft Earth. Announced today but not playable until summer (on iOS and Android) or later, MCE (as I’ll call it) is full-on Minecraft, reimagined to be mobile and AR-first. So what is it? As executive producer Jesse Merriam put it succinctly: “Everywhere you go, you see Minecraft. And everywhere you go, you can play Minecraft.” Yes, yes — but …

Photoshop Fail Of The Week: A Freakishly Long Arm Betches

Hello again, friends. In this week’s Photoshop Fail, I did a lot of research. And after last week’s foot disaster (seriously, would LOVE an explanation for that still, though), it got me thinking about how it’s even possible for professional, high-paid photo retouchers to screw up so badly. Like, I guarantee the photo editor for Vogue probably makes more than my entire cost of American private college education in a year! Those are the true professionals, right? They wouldn’t royally screw up, right? Do you see where I’m going with this? I started going through old Vogue celeb covers and that’s when I found this gem. This is the cover for March 2017, featuring many a hot celeb, like Kendall Jenner, …

Rocketman, the Elton John biopic, fails on lift-off

Image copyright Paramount Pictures Image caption Jamie Bell plays Sir Elton’s songwriting partner Bernie Taupin We go from addiction story to back story for a while until the two become one and everything that was good about the film (warmth, self-deprecating humour, seamless segues between music, action and time) is lost in yet another scene of Elton Hercules John overindulging. It’s a rock ‘n’ roll cliché at the best of times, but is overplayed here to such an extent as to suggest (ridiculously) it is the only interesting thing to say or reveal about a sensitive, artistic man blessed with a special talent to touch the hearts and minds of millions of people across the globe. It’s a shame, because …

23 Oddly Satisfying Soviet-Era Control Rooms

In the 69 years of its existence the Soviet Union, or USSR, became an industrial and technological behemoth. The communist union of republics (many of which were unwilling members that were kept behind the iron curtain by force), sent the first man into space, was the catalyst behind the defeat of the Nazis and had a list of rather impressive achievements in its short history, despite obvious flaws in the makeup of its society. Image credits: Image credits: Image credits: Image credits: republic.ru crimea.ria.ru One thing we can all appreciate, however, is the strange beauty of these Soviet-era control rooms. Before digitization, things like power plants, railway systems, space programs and nuclear weapons had to be monitored by huge banks …

Dad Makes Goth Daughter Feel At Home In This German Hardware Store Ad

The Goth subculture, which began in the ’80s on the back of the punk subculture of the ’70s, has survived and thrived over the years along with its associated tastes in music, aesthetics, and fashion. Goths have contributed much to wider culture over the years, with icons like Robert Smith, David Bowie, Nico and Tim Burton heavily influenced by the dark, artistic and androgynous characteristics of the Goth scene.

3 Sunscreens That Aren’t Bad For You Betches

Attitude Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30 BeautyCounter Counter Sun Mineral Sunscreen Mist SPF 30 I know I’m going to crush a lot of souls here, particularly that of middle aged dads everywhere, but spray sunscreens are the worst culprits of the chemical sunscreens. Again, not only do you have to worry about the chemicals soaking into your skin, you also need to worry about breathing them in as well. *Sigh* Must everything in life we love be so bad??? Well, fortunately, no. Switch to a different type of spray sunscreen, such as the one above from BeautyCounter, which is a non-aerosol mineral mist, to help prevent a lot of those potential health risks while still protecting your skin.

A Bro’s Breakdown Of Hannah B’s ‘Bachelorette’ Contestants Betches

I’m Jared Freid. I’m a 34-year-old comedian who loves The Bachelor and The Bachelorette. I love it so much, I live Instagram story every episode: @jaredfreid. As you can imagine, my father is v proud. V.  This is my annual preview for the season. I’ve been doing this preview for years. When I first started, Snapchat was just an app to see boobs and Instagram couldn’t help a person pay rent. Also, ABC would only give me a picture, a name, an age, where they were from, and a profession. I’d make massive assumptions based on that small amount of information and that was my preview. Then ABC was like, “Let’s interview these monsters” and suddenly my job got easier. …

Ugg: kick in the guts as Aussie maker loses US trademark case

Sydney-based Eddie Oygur ordered to pay damages after footwear and apparel company Deckers puts its foot down The Australian ugg boot maker Eddie Oygur has suffered a $US450,000 ($A643,000) loss in his David versus Goliath legal fight with a major US footwear and apparel company. A jury in Chicago found Oygurs business, Sydney-based Australian Leather, wilfully infringed a trademark registered to California-based Deckers Outdoor by selling ugg boots online to customers in the US. After a four-day trial Oygur was ordered to pay Deckers statutory damages of $US450,000 and he may face an order to pay millions more in legal costs. Deckers generates more than $US1bn in annual sales from its UGG brands. Oygur argued ugg is a generic term …

Trump’s Trade War With China Hasn’t Wrecked TechYet

Now for your latest installment of the on-again, off-again trade war between the US and China, we have President Trump blasting Beijing for reneging on commitments to clamp down on intellectual property theft, end forced technology transfers from US tech companies, and allow US companies greater access to the domestic Chinese market, including in cloud computing. Until Sunday’s tweets, the smart money had been on a deal. The sudden cooling—and a promise that tariffs on $200 billion of Chinese goods imported into the US would rise from 10 percent to 25 percent on Friday—has spooked financial markets and unsettled businesses ranging from apparel to autos and especially to tech. Reaction to the new hostilities ranged from warnings of a 20 …

While You Were Offline: The Saga of Trump’s Tax Returns Rages On

Hello. Yes, it's time once again for While You Were Offline, WIRED's deep dive into everything the internet has been talking about over the past week. What'd you miss? Well, apparently tensions are rising between the US and Iran, and North Korea is missile testing again. Oh, there's also the US-China trade war that's brewing. In terms of more pleasant distractions, last week the name Archie became a thing again, although to be honest, Archie's been a thing again for a while now. Oh, and the Met Gala brought camp to a mainstream audience that apparently didn't understand what camp was and maybe still doesn't understand it now. Regardless, Billy Porter and Ezra Miller looked amazing. And finally, an errant …

SpaceXs Crew Dragon is having trouble and thats okay

We may be poised on the precipice of a new era of spaceflight, but leaping prematurely off it would be a costly mistake — which is why the delays and failures of SpaceX’s Crew Dragon, the new spacecraft that will likely be soonest to take humans to space, are a matter for concern but not worry. In space, you expect the unexpected. The sudden explosion of a Crew Dragon test capsule is frightening and frankly embarrassing to a company so heavily focused on an image of futurity and reliability. And a failed parachute deployment doesn’t inspire confidence either. But any historian of the space industry will tell you it’s rare that something with rockets on it doesn’t blow up at …
