Have you seen Lazarus, the cat with a cleft palate?

Now THAT is a man cave! Reddit user ‘kelhans’ turned his ordinary basement into a 1950s era hunting cabin man cave. What’s more impressive? He spent only $107 on materials! Using mostly found or reclaimed materials (like the fireplace bricks, which he scavenged on the side of the road), he spent 6 months transforming every nick and cranny to have that rustic feel.

These photos of dogs sitting on cats (and cats getting their revenge) are priceless!

Milo Sumner Contributor

By Milo Sumner in New Trends on Friday 19 September 2014

Oh, these are are too funny for words. This collection of ‘Cat? What cat?’ photos from our friends at Sad & Useless will have your sides splitting. Something about the utterly bemused look in each of the cat’s faces as they play cushion for ever-attentive dogs is completely hilarious. It’s as if they’ve finally accepted their lot in life, like the intelligent kid with the stupid big brother who comes to terms with being pushed around… or sat on?

There’s not a lot we can tell you about this photograph… but then again, what do you need to know? Never before has any creature been able to imbue so much scorn, distaste and hatred into a glare as this cat. It’s almost as if he (she?) is daring the driver to move the car. Perhaps all puss wants is to come along for a ride, who knows.

Rachel Oakley Contributor

By Rachel Oakley in Tech on Friday 19 September 2014

There is something worse than working a job that is unrewarding-working in a cubicle and listening to your co-workers’ cackling all day. Most of us have been there, but if the boss won’t allow us to wear headphones, we don’t have many other options than to listen to the workplace gossip from 9 – 5. Until now!

Milo Sumner Contributor

By Milo Sumner in Video on Friday 19 September 2014

Duck..dodge!…weave…side-step…dodge again! Maybe the best way to win a fight is just to keep moving, avoiding blows and never actually throwing any yourself. It certainly seems like a good idea when you see the guy in the YouTube video challenging random people on the street to punch him in the face… or rather he challenges them to TRY and punch him in the face.
