Even if you lack the know-how or the experience to make a restaurant quality food, you can still make it look fun. Making hot dogs is probably the easiest thing in the world, they’re delicious but they’re so boring. Making the spiral cut hot dogs not only makes it a conversation piece it actually tastes better. First of all they cook up straight as an arrow but most importantly the increase in surface area means more flavor and more room for the condiments. It’s science. I know what will be on the menu for 4th of July barbecue. goviralhasPoppedUp = [More]
This ‘lil dude has just barely started his life and he’s already facing the same problems every new parent faces – trying to figure out the answer to the question “Why is it crying and how do I make it stop?” Yes, we can safely say the first time he met these twin girls didn’t really go according to plan. One of them just wouldn’t stop crying and the confusion on his face as he was trying to figure out what was going on is too adorable. You better get used to it little buddy, it will take years before [More]

In Australia, where it seems like everything is trying to kill you, at least there are adorable kangaroos. Kangaroos aren’t exactly the safest animals to be around either, but at least they’re pretty cute. For orphaned joeys that can’t survive on their own, The Kangaroo Sanctuary in Alice Springs, Australia, is a life-saver. The sanctuary raises and rehabilitates baby kangaroos and, whenever possible, releases them back into the wild. Working there means hanging out with kangaroos at their cutest stage and feeding time seems especially delightful. The caretaker tells us their names are Indie, Johansson, Jimmie, and Patty, and soon [More]

New York-based illustrator Andrés Moncayo has recently dove into the 8-bit world of the original NES (Nintendo Entertainment System) and decided to give it a 21st-century facelift. Show Full Text He starts his process by grabbing screenshots from some of Nintendo’s most iconic early games, such as Punch-Out and Duck Hunt, and loading them into Photoshop. There, he carefully graces each scene with masterful shadows and highlights, softens the pixelated outlines characteristic to retro graphics, and adds realistic textures to give a supremely ‘modernised’ look. It’s serious imagination fuel for the hardcore gamers who would kill to see high-quality NES [More]
Along the wild Pacific coast of British Columbia, there lives a population of the sea wolves. “We know from exhaustive DNA studies that these wolves are genetically distinct from their continental kin,” says McAllister. “They are behaviourally distinct, swimming from island to island and preying on sea animals. They are also morphologically distinct — they are smaller in size and physically different from their mainland counterparts,” says Ian McAllister, an award-winning photographer who has been studying these animals for almost two decades. Show Full Text McAllister captured the magic of these wolves in breath-taking pictures. As he swam towards them, [More]
Everyone’s favorite YouTube magician and feel-good prankster, Stuart Edge, is back with yet another incredible act of kindness. Recently, Edge accidentally transferred $470 into a stranger’s PayPal account after making a simple typo. But instead of keeping the money, the kind stranger reached out and returned it. It was an act of honesty that inspired the prankster to hatch a plan that’d help him thank the man in person. And that meant flying halfway around the world from Utah to the United Kingdom. As you can see in the video below, it was all worth it in the end. They [More]

While money can buy almost everything, it apparently cannot buy common sense. A rich man buys a helicopter, but can’t be bothered with flying lessons. Without any training or experience he hops in the pilot’s seat and starts flipping switches. To be fair, he does get it off the ground, but any good pilot will tell you flying is easy, landing is hard. This guy comes crashing back down in what will hopefully be his first and last time behind the stick. The post Foolish man buys helicopter, tries to fly without any experience or training appeared first on America. [More]
