Stefano Unterthiner Photography : Animals Face to Face Colt + Rane Stefano Unterthiner Photography : Animals Face to Face More Stupid Cat So there's this cat food commercial. Maybe you've seen it. A cat wanders into an empty kitchen and ambles toward a can of Friskies cat food. Then a mysterious portal opens up. The cat leaps through the portal, and finds herself in a brightly colored fantasy land. And even though it's only a 60-second commercial, this stoned cat manages to have a complete adventure, by land and by sea. Her journey eventually comes full circle, and a new portal leads the cat home, where she scarfs down some brown mush in a bowl. Seeing pet food commercials always makes me miss my cat Lola, this commercial in particular. Last time I was home, I brought her a little mouse toy full of catnip. After that she picked up the mouse in her teeth, carried over to the couch, and rolled around for several minutes in a hazy delirium. "No more drugs for you, cat," I said, and put the mouse on top of the fridge. Later that afternoon I let Lola outside for a bit. "Oh my god, Lola," I said.

Older Sibling Win! 17 Images You Won't Believe Aren't Photoshopped (Part 7) Salvador Dali's Melting Train Tracks These funhouse-mirror railroad tracks are a reminder that Mother Nature pretty much laughs at the things we build. What you're seeing is the aftermath of a recent earthquake in New Zealand. We feel sorry for those two guys in orange who apparently have been tasked with re-straightening the tracks with their bare hands. Hey, Pretty Impressive Mural! This would be an impressive feat even if this church was just a painting on the side of the cliff face. It's the Hermitage of St. So, yeah, good job to whoever hauled all those bricks up there. Spider Goat, Spider Goat ... While we're on the topic of amazing feats of Italians, we present the Alpine ibex, seen here casually scaling the Cingino Dam in Italy and openly defying all laws of physics. The only thing these goats give less of a shit about than gravity are the fences you build to try to keep them in.

The System 472: Road Sage UPDATE: The Quirky Nomads Podcast has made this comic into a radio production! More info here » ALSO: Now avaiable as an 11×17 print! This is a followup to one of the more popular comics in the archive, famously featuring “figure out purple”. Hitting conflict in the face with more conflict never seems to help, as both sides immediately identify the other as the enemy and shut off any ability to listen to reason. I’d like to point out where this comic starts, “when someone yells at you from their car”. UPDATE: Thanks for all the love on the comic! You can also buy this t-shirt about biking:

honeybee137LK 36 Pictures That Look Photoshopped – But Are Not The power of Photoshop is amazing, but still it doesn’t beat the power of imagination. Although many photos taken by professional photographers and enhanced in Photoshop can be absolutely stunning, the photos taken wisely and in a creative manner are even more impressive. Today’s showcase is dedicated to such photos, the ones that make people skeptical about not being manipulated and still they are genuine and impressive. They can be really inspiring and a pride to every photographer’s portofolio, no matter if they are funny, dramatic or just miracles of nature.

A Father Who Creatively Captures His Kids (20 photos) If there was a prize that could be given out to the most creative father, I'd hope that it was awarded to Jason Lee. A wedding photographer by day, he's used to capturing some of the most important moments in a couple's lives. As a longtime fan of Jason's photos on Flickr however, I think the real magic happens when he turns the camera onto his daughters. Sure, his children are adorably cute in their own right, but that's not what makes his photos so interesting. It's when he puts his own spin on their everyday moments that we not only get to experience our own childhood again, we're able to see a father's pride shine through. I was able to get in touch with Jason to ask him a few questions. Q: How did you get into photography? Q: How do you come up with such creative photos of your daughters? Q: How has being on Flickr helped you with your business? Q: Any inspirational stories you'd like to share? Q: Do you have any advice for aspiring photographers? Q: Any quotes you live by?

10 Best Places to Live for Escaping World Conflict Where would you be the safest if World War 3 broke out tomorrow? Perhaps it’s a grim subject, but safety and distance from world conflict can be a motivating factor in your choice to expatriate. At the very least, conflict around the world can weigh heavy on the soul, and it’s nice to know there are some places still left in the world where you might be left in peace. 10. Switzerland’s long history of neutrality and its tucked away location among the valleys of the Alps still make it a safe bet, even despite having a high number of bordering nations. 9. Costa Rica has a stable democracy, a disbanded military and a national policy of neutrality. 8. There are regions of Papua New Guinea that are still being discovered for the first time. 7. Canada is the second largest nation in the world, yet it only shares a land border with one other country– the U.S.A.– and it is a peaceful border. 6. 5. 4. 3. 2. 1. Comments

Wolverine Alphabet Gallery @omgwtflolbbqbye: yeah I thought so too cause black widow at B made sense and I figured A was some Japanese thing I wasn't aware of, that being said man that stuff looks sweet. Hulk looks more like Grendle and is that Wolvie with a Cap outfit or is that bucky? @omgwtflolbbqbye: Right! X should of had Weapon X, not Dr. Strange. On a side note. ATTN: Sony and friends, Send the mutants and all-around awesome heroes home where they belong. Online : How-To: Carve astounding art-pumpkins We wrote about Ray Villafane’s pumpkin carving tutorial several years ago, but it’s worth linking to again. We were reminded of Ray’s astounding squash-sculpting mojo when our most-awesome Director of Marketing and PR for Maker Faire, Bridgette Vanderlaan, sent around a gallery of Ray’s work through internal email. Even if you don’t have Ray’s artistic chops, I bet, if you carefully follow his instructions, what you get will be a heck of a lot more “high-brow” than triangle eyes and a jagged mouth.
