Low Lai Chow Contributor

By Low Lai Chow in Tech on Monday 9 June 2014

Ash Newland was planning a climbing trip in Mt Kilimanjaro with a pal four years ago when he started thinking about how they were going to wash their clothes regularly. Newland liked the idea of a washboard but baulked at the bulkiness.

Zolton Editor

By Zolton in Video on Thursday 5 June 2014

Question: where hasn’t a GoPro been lately? What, between falling into pig pens, flying with baby pelicans, and capturing plane crashes … from inside the plane … it would seem there is no frontier left to conquer. Until now.

Here’s a bear hanging out on a hammock. You’re welcome

Inigo del Castillo Contributor

By Inigo del Castillo in New Events on Wednesday 4 June 2014

Yes you read that right. This is a photo of a black bear. Lying down on a hammock. A Florida neighborhood got the spook of their lives the other day when a black bear searched their area for food. After a hard day’s work of rummaging through the trash, the bear decided to chill a bit by hanging out in a resident’s backyard hammock.

Eeek! This woman tied her one month old baby to her wedding dress, then walked down the aisle

Lost At E Minor Contributor

By Lost At E Minor in New Events on Tuesday 3 June 2014

They say that the act of getting married can do strange things to your mindset, but this one takes the (wedding) cake! In Tennessee (where else), the bride Shona Carter-Brooks did something almost incomprehensible: she tied her one month old daughter into the train of her wedding dress as she walked down the aisle. Well, it was ‘something new’. Amid an understandably furious public outcry, Carter-Brooks has defended the decision, saying that the baby was ‘awake and well-secured’ and ‘covered by Christ’.

An artwork so huge, you could explore it like a cavern

Inigo del Castillo Contributor

By Inigo del Castillo in New Art on Tuesday 3 June 2014

What you are seeing is not a network of caves formed over a million years deep within a magical forest. What you are seeing is an artwork made by an artist and his team – presumably not over a million years – in a room inside a museum in Sao Paolo, Brazil.

Inigo del Castillo Contributor

By Inigo del Castillo in New Trends on Tuesday 3 June 2014

I think they captured their best angle with this one. Yup, this selfie trend will definitely be turning heads. Currently in Japan, taking head-shaking photos is slowly becoming popular.

Aww: this husky was raised with cats and acts like them

Inigo del Castillo Contributor

By Inigo del Castillo in New Trends on Tuesday 3 June 2014

She may not have a cat for a butt – or conversely, be the butt of a cat – but I think we’ve just found the real life CatDog. Tally, or Tao Tao (which means ‘mischievous’ in Chinese), is a husky/malamute who was raised with cats as a puppy. At the age of two, she was adopted by Redditor ‘Dong_of_justice’, who shares that she still displays cat-like behavior well into adulthood.

So now it’s conclusive: cat people are OFFICIALLY smarter than dog people

Zolton Editor

By Zolton in New Trends on Tuesday 3 June 2014

We always had our suspicions, but now, thanks to the good folk at Carroll University in Wisconsin, it’s been confirmed by science: cat owners are officially smarter than their dog loving peers. Yes, according to Live Science ‘cat lovers scored higher than dog lovers on measures such as introversion, open-mindedness and a term used far too loosely in society, sensitivity’. Sensitivity!

Snake? Nope! A caterpillar that looks and acts like a snake for camouflage

Inigo del Castillo Contributor

By Inigo del Castillo in New Eco on Tuesday 3 June 2014

When you encounter a snake, don’t panic just yet, it just might be a harmless little caterpillar – or it could really be a snake. Either way, just run. In Costa Rica, there’s a caterpillar that camouflages itself to look like a snake, with its tail appearing to be the head of the vicious reptile. It even hides its legs and expands its body to make the snake-like markings on its body more realistic.
