Furrion Prosthesis Exo-bionic Mech Shows MegaBots How Mech Is Done

Being a sucker for all-thing mecha, it is only natural that I got all dizzy about the world’s first mech robot battle, but as thrilled as I was, those mecha, be it MegaBots or Kurata, are short of being “real mecha” because, rightly, mecha should pound the ground, not rolls on tracks or wheels. A mecha should be like Hankook Mirae Technology’s Method-2, or China’s giant monkey robot. In other words, they should have lower limbs. Not all hopes are lost, though. The world of giant-ass robots is progressing, starting with the aforementioned and now, we heard, there is another and it is called Furrion Prosthesis Exo-bionic Racing Mech.

The Internet Is Outraged By Team USA’s Speed Skating ‘Pervy’ Outfit

If you have not been catching the on-going Winter Olympics over at Pyeongchang, South Korea, you probably have not noticed something rather unusual about the Team USA’s Speed Skating outfit. I know I sure did not pay attention to it, but thanks to the Internet, I cannot unseen what I have saw. The two-tone outfit has sparked quite some reaction, particularly of disgust, because, the skin-tight apparel features a light colored patch on the crotch area which appears to be highlighting the athletes’ inner thigh and if that’s isn’t weird enough, the outfit also sports a tiny black patch in the said area which seems to point to the athlete’s genitalia area. Absolutely weird. Continue reading The Internet Is Outraged By Team USA’s Speed Skating ‘Pervy’ Outfit

Two Kids Tried To Pay For A Ticket For Black Panther By Disguising Themselves As One Tall Person

We often seen in movies and TV shows on how two kids tried to disguise as a grown person by having one sitting on top of another and draping themselves over with an oversize trench coat. Kids in those movies/TV shows did it for various reasons, including trying to get into an adult-only party or to buy boozes, but in the case of Twitter user Pillsbury (@stevelikescups) and his friend, they did it just to see if they could pass off two person as one person to watch Marvel’s latest superhero flick, Black Panther at a local theater. Now, we all know how it ends. Continue reading Two Kids Tried To Pay For A Ticket For Black Panther By Disguising Themselves As One Tall Person

Trees Growing On Abandoned Ship Is A Reminder Of Nature’s Resilience

Now, we don’t where or when this photograph originated and who have taken it, but you know it is a good image when you see one. But being breathtaking is one thing; it also serves as a reminder of how resilience nature is. Apparently, this has happened in the waters of Australia. A boat was, for some reasons, abandoned and subsequently taken a life of its own with floral popping up on wherever they can find a place to stay rooted. It is quite a sight to behold. And I can only imagine corals of some sort are flourishing beneath the surface of the water, supporting even more life.

Tightly Curled Up Black Panther Appears To Be Black Round Object

This has nothing to do with tech. Neither is this lifestyle stuff, but like Hirakawa Zoo who tweeted this, we are intrigued. I know, black panther is not a cuddly creature that you can pat and hug, but the thing is, how it behaved and responded to cold is kind of cute. Adorable because, due to the fact this big cat is so dark that, when it curled up itself tightly, it is transformed into something entirely different. Who knows, this could be a good camouflage tactic? Continue reading Tightly Curled Up Black Panther Appears To Be Black Round Object

Flight With Over 80 Plumbers Forced To Return Because Of Toilets Problems

If there was a practicing physician onboard a flying passenger airline, he could probably attend to someone with a medical emergency and you would think, if a flight with professional plumbers onboard had toilets problem, the issue could be solved right up in the air, right? Clearly, that wasn’t the case with Norwegian Air flight #DY1156, when it reportedly met with toilets problem when there were over 80 plumbers onboard. Just in case you are wondering… these plumbers were flying from Oslo to Munich to attend a trade event and hence, the congregation of so many same trade folks onboard. Unfortunately, the toilets issue were not for them to rectify, even though the lot of them were probably more than capable to do the job.

Tide Pod Is Not Alone In The World Of Yummy-looking Non-edible Products

By now, I am sure you have heard about Tide Pod, the detergent from Tide that is packaged somewhat like gel candies. Obviously, they are not. Now, you may be asking ‘why would anyone blur the line, so to speak, between whats edible and what’s not?’ I don’t know. Perhaps, they look nice. Well, that’s the problem. It looks so colorful that it spun off a series of memes and a satirical article by The Onion, and even College Humor made a comic short about it.
