Someone Actually Made Cakes That Looks Like Shag Rugs. Like, What???

“John, you are so dumb that I sometimes wonder if you ate rugs growing up,” John: “you know what, may be I did!” That’s what mum bought for my birthday every year, a custom Shag Rug cake.” I know. That was a lame joke, but the custom Shag Rug cake wasn’t a made up thing; it is a real thing and the genius baker who made these shag rug-theme cake is Alana Jones-Mann. The Los Angeles-based baker has made a ton of delectable treats, ranging from Star Trek USS Enterprise, an out-of-this-world tropical snow globe cake, Easter Lamb Cake in the likeness of a super cute lamb, a cake in the shape and size of a pizza and more, but nothing catches our eyes like the Shag cake that features a buttercream exterior, skillfully styled into convincing colorful, patterned shag rugs.

Oh, Look. There Is A Owner’s Workshop Manual For F-14 Tomcat!

Now, I am sure we are familiar with Haynes, the publishing firm known for manuals that guide to maintaining and repairing automobiles and motorcycles, and in recent times, even teaches you how to survive a zombie apocalypse (very aptly filed under “Practical Lifestyle Manual” and yes, it is 100% real!). It seems like whatever ride you have, Haynes Manuals will have you covered, but what if your ride happen to be the once icon of U.S. air superiority, the aircraft that synonymous with the movie Top Gun (Paramount Pictures, 1986), the Grumman F-14 Tomcat?

Flooded River Turns Hiking Trail Into A Real-Life Waterworld

When Peter Rader and David Twohy wrote Waterworld (Universal Pictures, 1995), they probably did not imagine it would actually happen. Well, it did, but the good news is, there is no need to raise the alarm. Apocalypse is not upon us, yet, because, real-life “waterworld” only occurred in Brazil in early February when an unusually heavy downpour flooded the Olho D’Agua river in Bonito. The resulting flood submerged the jungle around it, but unlike most river floods, which are murky in nature, the overflowing water from Olho D’Agua river was super clear.

Redlight Dash Cam That Alerts Phone-Using Drivers When Lights Turn Green Is A Very, Very BAD Idea

Lets set the record straight here: using your phone for any purpose when driving is never good. No one should be doing that, ever. Not even when you are at the traffic light. However, for some reasons, some folks think some people don’t care anyways, so they have came up with hardware and software solution that will enable these folks not get honked at when they are fixated with their devices at the lights. The product in question is called Redlight Greenlight camera. It is essentially a wide FoV camera with high sensitivity sensor that recognizes stoplight and faces.

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

We Can’t Help But To Cringe At This Over-modded Elantra With Iron Man-inspired Paint Job

You know we have a tag called “Weird Stuff”? Yea. We do. Under normal circumstances, custom cars will never fall under this category. It is almost impossible to brand a custom ride as “Weird Stuff” unless it was one that looks like a dick, or to be precise, one that was intentionally modeled after a man’s penis. Unfortunately, this is the day we stumbled upon one that fits squarely into this “Weird Stuff” tag and the custom ride in question is this not-so-tastefully-done third-generation Hyundai Elantra. I mean, as if modding an Elantra isn’t bad enough; to make it look like this is borderline blasphemy. Man, it sure takes a unique mindset to even dream up with this. Continue reading We Can’t Help But To Cringe At This Over-modded Elantra With Iron Man-inspired Paint Job

Balenciaga Elevates Crocs To High Fashion By Adding Platform To Them

Just when we thought putting precious rocks on Crocs was outrageous, Balenciaga shows us that Christopher Kane’s idea might be way too tame. The Parisian fashion label has, yet again, outdone itself in loud fashion and this time, it has turned out platform version of the worst thing to happen to footwear, Crocs. Yes. Believe it. Crocs on wedge is a thing. Honestly, I don’t know what to make of it. Rightly I shouldn’t because, I am no lady. Perhaps, ladies in the house would like to comment below? Anyways, by giving Crocs platform or wedge, Balenciaga essentially branded the once-unisex footwear as a single-sex fashion item. Continue reading Balenciaga Elevates Crocs To High Fashion By Adding Platform To Them

Is This Tesla Hearse A Fitting Display Of The Death Of Gas Automobile?

I have no idea how did we missed this. This particular dark custom Tesla Model S went viral when it surfaced back in 2016. Notwithstanding that it is over a year old, we thought it will be a good idea to mention it since there may be folks like me who aren’t aware and also because, Zachary Shahan of CleanTechnica had the opportunity to see it in person and thus, wrote an article on the backstory of this one-of-a-kind Tesla hearse (and there’s a video too). Continue reading Is This Tesla Hearse A Fitting Display Of The Death Of Gas Automobile?

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
