Hollywood production company Broken Road’s Todd Garner and Sean Robins, and Grumpy Cat’s manager Ben Lashes and representative Al Hassas are now in talks to make a feature film that revolves around the half-scowling, half-scornful cat. ‘This started off as a picture of a cat, but rare is an image that evokes that much comedy… [...]
Why didn’t we think of this earlier? Here’s an unnamed cosplayer at this year’s FanimeCon in San Jose as a mashup of a Heath Ledger-styled Joker and Ronald McDonald, photographed by Seattle-based photographer David Ngo. And the only common ground we thought the Joker and old Ronald had were for being clowns. Not sure what [...]
Some hawk-eyed folks recently spotted a decidedly rat-like critter in a photo taken in September last year by the Curiosity Rover. It’s really a rock. I guess it would make a pretty good pet rock. Some fans have set up a Twitter account for it with the appropriately dire warning ‘People of Earth. You found [...]
The Lost At E Minor team love a good old G&T at the end of a busy week, so when Hendricks invited us out in Sydney to celebrate our beloved beverage of choice we jumped at the chance. Little did we know that we were off to a curious and unusual night to discover the [...]
Cockroaches, apparently, are evolving so quickly, they’re skirting around sugar like the plague. Blame us humans for trying the same trick one time too many with sugar traps.

Relaxing just got a whole lot easier now that you can ask for a drink just by walking through the sand. Your next beach trip won’t be complete without these custom flipflops. With each step, you leave a subtle message in the sand that says, “follow me, bring beer”. Seriously, what could be better?
A guy who’s tired of having his manliness questioned by other guys has gone ahead to start his own tongue-in-cheek creation for situations when bros question bros: the Man card. Yes, this stainless steel-etched card is perfect for a man to flash in defense whenever he goes against the traditional masculine grain and confesses to [...]
Gaming transforms lives. It can transform the way you barbeque corn cobs, for instance. The Call of Duty-inspired Tactical Apron has the word ‘Chef’ emblazoned behind it, and has a MOLLE system for anyone cooking up some grease to feel like he’s totally owning the BBQ pit.
What were you like a year ago, and what were you doing?

Started by Tim Bierbaum and John Milhiser from comedy group Serious Lunch, Baguette-Me-Nots, which replaces objects with baguettes in pictures, is of course perfectly comprehensible. It can be surreal, it can be banal, it can be mindbending, but it yeast what it yeast. Never judge bread.
Well, now we’ve seen it all. Apparently, this JCPenney tea kettle looks an awful lot like a certain fascist dictator. JCPenney shoppers have been complaining that this $40 tea kettle designed by Michael Graves resembles Adolf Hitler. Despite the complaints, the kettle sold out within a matter of hours. So, do you see Hitler in [...]
A friend of mine recently came back from this year’s Maker Faire with a couple of bottles of handmade perfume oil from Blushie, a business based just outside of San Francisco.

A year ago, blogger Paul Miller exiled himself from the Internet. Disconnected from the web for 365 days, he hoped to become more productive, taking a journey to discover himself, free from the distractions of Facebook and funny cats. Watch what actually happened.
We love it when stuff get a shot at life after life. The Miele Space Station, an architectural structure made out of nothing but disused washing machines, is the perfect poster child for this.
