Four graduates from North Carolina State University’s Materials Science & Engineering department have found one way women could avoid date rapes: Get a manicure. Odd? Yes. Effective? Could be. Their product, a nail polish called ‘Undercover Colors’, could detect date rape drugs like GHB, Xanax, and Rohypnol. The wearer just has to swirl her drink with her finger, and if the nail changes colour, she better find help immediately.
These two guys take FOREVER to get out of the water even though there’s a huge shark right next to them
This video has to be seen to be believed. The incident took place in Destin, Florida, in the Southern United States. Taken from a high-up vantage point, we are treated to the sight of a couple of rather overweight fellows meandering in the shallow waters on a pristine beach complete with white sands and neatly ordered sun chairs. [Watch this incredible video here. Spoiler: you mightn't ever want to go into the water again!]
There’s a serious surplus of nude arty photo-shoots out there. As a result, it’s totally refreshing when a photographer turns the stereotype on its head. Utah-based Trevor Christensenlaunched his series of images entitled Nude Portraits last Monday, and since then it’s taken Reddit by storm.
Amazing news, The secret to eternal life has been cracked and it turns out it’s been under our noses this whole time! There is one small hitch though… if you’re keen on living forever it looks like you may also have to become a tentacley mass of jelly.

Berlin-based dancer Rauf Yasit calls himself Rubber Legz and you’ll see why. This guy has the ability to pose in any way for the camera, making us all feel a little uncomfortable at the same time! Yasit actually started this contortion work after he injured his back, and unable to perform acrobatics as a breakdancer, he decided to do the next best thing.
Let’s face it-life isn’t half as good as we thought it’d be when we were kids. We don’t get to play all day. Nobody makes our meals and cuts off the crusts of our sandwiches (right?). And most of us have to work tedious jobs just to survive. All those magical nursery books we read as children were rubbish.
Remember when you used to catch a movie when you wanted a stress-free day or you just felt like unwinding on the weekends? Not anymore! In Chinese cities such as Beijing and Shanghai, cinema goers are being encouraged to text during movies, with their messages being displayed across the actual movie screen for the whole world to see.
While hydroelectric dams provide hydro-power, they also block the migration of fish such as salmon, which typically swim long distances to return to their original homes to breed. One company called Whooshh Innovations (yup, you heard that right) has come up with an unique solution – a vacuum tube that sucks the fish out of […]
Somewhere in the remotest regions of Russia, one anonymous man is waking up to the sight of picturesque landscapes. In fact, the vistas are so picturesque, he decided to take lots of selfies – foot selfies, that is. Sticking to his foot selfies theme, he captures the places he visits from inside his tent with […]
A single sheet of cardboard can’t do much, right? Wrong! In India, many children go to school but don’t have the luxury of sitting behind a desk. To address this issue, the nonprofit organization Aarambh created a necessity out of a single sheet of cardboard: a school desk. The Bombay-based nonprofit worked with designers to come up with the desk design from a simple sheet of cardboard.
In Singapore, mommies spare no expenses in having calligraphy brushes made from the hair of their new born or having their tiny handprints and footprints preserved in clay. And now, the latest baby fad to hit the scene amongst them – breast milk jewelry. A tiny amount of breast milk, between 10-20 ml, is sent to the maker of such accessories for processing and dehydration until the milk turns into a plastic-like state.
This is the stuff dreams are made of. ‘Supersize Bed’ is a fully-functional bed with a headboard that looks like a large order of fries. Created by designer Cecilia Carey with Bompas and Parr, the giant fries can be removed to serve as huggable pillows. Yes, we can now show our unconditional love to fast […]
Ladies and gentlemen, please may we have your attention. We have some extremely confusing news: Hello Kitty is NOT a cat… You read that correctly. The majority of us will have never even spared a thought for the world-famous Japanese icon, and it’s unlikely that any of those that have will have questioned whether or Hello Kitty is indeed feline.

Some breeds of dog are unfairly stereotyped, and none more so that the pit bull. We look at a greyhound and think racing, associate a chihuahua with socialites and the west highland terrier with monopoly. None of these associations are negative and, more importantly, unlikely to affect the decision of a potential adopter.
