Meet Michigan’s Amish Version Of Uber Ride Sharing Service

You know Lyft and Uber? They are a common sight these days, but in addition to the two prominent ride sharing services that operate mainly in big cities, Michigan has another unique form of ride sharing service and it is one that involves a horse and a buggy (or carriage, as some would have called it). So, yeah. It is a taxi with a ride that, technically speaking, has just one horsepower, but who cares about ‘horsepower’ when it is this cool?

Artist Creates Clay Macarons With Disturbingly Realistic Faces Of Babies

From cake with poppable pimples to shag rugs-lookalike cake to non-edible pot pie with anthropomorphic faces, the world is certainly not lacking of bizarre and sometimes disturbing food, fake or real. Well, it looks like it is not going to stop. It seems like more are being uncovered every now and then, and here’s another by Holland-based Singapore artist by the name Lim Qi Xuan.

There Is Something Unsettling About This Creature That Was Washed Ashore

With so many fake news, including those covering monsters (Yeti, Sasquatch, Loch Ness), you’d be skeptical when another popped up on the Internet. Rest assure though, this creepy sea creature that was found washed ashore in Kien Giang province in southern Vietnam on July 29 is not a fake video. And yes, it is a creature alright. It was alive and kicking, stretching and moving its myriad of tree branch-like tentacles when it was placed on a table in a home. Continue reading There Is Something Unsettling About This Creature That Was Washed Ashore

Mammoth Carcass Found In Siberia Had Its Hair Made Into A Hat

Remember the almost perfectly frozen ancient carcass mammoth found in Siberian permafrost? Well, someone had used the hair found on that ancient beast to fashion a hat. Yes, really. We never heard of anyone using mammoth hair as a material for a hat and so, it is safe to assume it is the first. According a report, the head wear has been put up for sale with a cool asking price of $10,000. For this princely sum, the buyer will secure himself a traditional Yakutian-style hat made with one-of-the-kind material, along with a certificate of authenticity.

In Thailand, Realistic-looking Giant Cockroach Plush Toy Is A Thing

Cockroach is not even remotely close to being adorable. In fact, it is one insect that is being frown upon by nearly all humans, but that does not stop one store in Thailand from selling plush toys of giant roaches that even has a rather endearing name, ‘Peter the Cockroach’, to boot. If the looks didn’t get you, perhaps the name will? Maybe? As you can see, Peter is very, very realistic. I’d say it is photo-realistic – short of being hyperrealistic – and it is anatomically correct too, complete with the requisite antenna (feelers?), spiky legs, wings and the works. Continue reading In Thailand, Realistic-looking Giant Cockroach Plush Toy Is A Thing

The Banana Phone Is A Phone That Is Literally A Banana

Mankind’s fascination for curved phone is not illogical. A curved phone is more ergonomic when placed against the face (but clearly not when placed on flat surface such as the desk). Despite so, only a couple of handsets in the history of mobile phone ever adopted the design. In fact, there was only one and it was the Nokia 8110 from the 90s which was recently being updated and brought back to life. That phone was as iconic as the red British telephone booth and because of its unique curved candy bar form factor, it was affectionately called the “banana phone.” Continue reading The Banana Phone Is A Phone That Is Literally A Banana

I try my best to imagine the best picture for any given situation. For example, when you get handcuffed, I would imagine it may be just an incident of bedroom role-play gone wrong and not that you are a fugitive on the run. That being said, if you ever find yourself being locked down by handcuffs, TIHK may have the survival kit you never knew you need. Continue reading TIHK’s Newest Survival Kit Lets You Get Out Of Handcuffs. Wait, What?

That’s right. Mayonnaise Ice Cream is a thing now and it is being served up in Scotland by an artisan ice cream parlor called ICE Falkirk.
