The U.S. is known for its aisles and aisles of snacks in grocery stores and convenience shops, but the rest of the world isn’t always in-the-know on American snacks, so it seemed like a fun experiment to gather a few Korean girls, sit them down, and have them taste some of America’s favourite snacks.

This haunted house claimed to be ‘piss your pants scary’ and it actually was. At least, it was for this woman!

After she peed her pants, a picture was taken and was then plastered on the park’s Facebook page.

Come 2016 and the world’s first airport terminal for animals will be opened at the John F Kennedy International Airport. Named The Ark, and built at a cost of US$48 million, the 178,000 square feet terminal will serve as a comfy waiting area for all animals while they await their turns at being transported to their destinations overseas.
That’s a mighty beautiful passport to whip out at a rave, eh? Released back in mid-2013, the new Canadian passport might look ordinary at first glance, but once you place it under a UV light, its pages suddenly turn into a party of colors and hidden images!
Now this is new: an annual competition that actually pits teams against each other for digging the deepest hole as they build camaraderie. Though it sounds vaguely morbid: why dig a hole, if not to bury a dead body? In any case, the Japanese seem to take it very seriously, with 271 teams taking part in the 14th edition last year to win the coveted prize of a… gold shovel. Uh huh.
With his shaggy blue coat and his undying love of cookies, it’s hard not to love Sesame Street’s Cookie Monster.

This one, however, is a lot more useful in kitchen duties. Created by designer Jenny Pokryvailo for OTOTO, the ladle looks like Nessie peeking out of […]
Yes, we all know people are crazy. This news story is proof that some people are crazier than others, especially when they’re bored. A parent from Tennessee was stopped behind a school bus one day and noticed something peculiar. A ‘satanic symbol‘ was on the school bus brake light for all to see. Or at least, for her to see.
This argument between dad and toddler is the most adorable video on the Internet (right now, at least)

French artist Chifumi Krohom from Strasbourg, who lives in Phnom Penh, purports to have a taste for experimentation with no destination or purpose, which pretty much sums up the greatness of his larger-than-life wheatpasted works across Cambodia, Nepal, India, as well as Italy and France.
We all know Craigslist is a bizarre place filled with weird ads by the oddest of people. But some ads tend to outshine the weirdness of others. This Seattle-based post tops them all…for now at least. This guy is advertising to walk your dog, if you’d let him. He starts off by asking if you’re too busy to walk your dog in the most creative ways like, ‘Are you going out of town with your post-divorce trophy-girlfriend to visit your slave ship collection in the Barbados?’
The video is called The Little Nordics and it was captured by DAMP Design’s Martijn Doolaard.

There’s something about a quirky chair design that just captures my attention, so here is my next eye-catcher: the Stray Bullet Chair. Designed by Design da Gema, these chairs (and matching side tables) are more than just mindless pieces.
If having a 747’s jet engine for a desk doesn’t suit your style, maybe you’d like to try its wing instead? French design studio ‘Les Ateliers Flown’ took a discarded 737-800 model wingtip and repurposed it into a sexy, futuristic desk.
