• Download And Build Your Halloween Mask This Year

    Looking to do a little something different for Halloween this year and not support those fat cats in the novelty industry? Or are you some do-gooder who is looking for way to recycle your old cardboard boxes? Or are you just a cheapskate? Whatever your reason, this year you can try your hand at making your own mask. And don’t worry if your body is lacking in a creative bone, for Wintercroft Masks will sell you simple plans for just a little over $7. These masks may not look like the scariest creations, but they’re a great starting point. Although you could leave them in their simple, pixel-esque state, we can also see how these are a great starting point for talented painters or sculptors. With proper decoration and or maybe a little added paper mache or plaster, these could be some incredible creations. Some of our favorites are below but plenty more are available at Etsy and Wintercroft Masks.

  • This Is The Greatest Use Of An Ice Dispenser Since…Ice [Video]

    Yesterday a Redditor posted pictures of his ice dispenser that he filled with candy so instead of ice cubes, you get an assortment of frozen treats. But in typical Internet fashion, nobody believed that it would actually work. Whereas most posters, when confronted with the righteous cynicism of folks on the Internet, would delete their post and dare never to post anything again (until they make a new username), this brave OP created a video to prove the functionality of his brilliant lifehack. But frozen Starbursts?? Does this guy own stock in Dentistry Inc.?

  • Another Teen Daredevil Is Scaling Skyscrapers [11 Photos]

    What is it with kids these days? When we were young, the only thing we scaled was the basketball pole on the playground when our ball got wedged between the hoop and backboard. We’d shimmy up those 10 feet and that was plenty, thank you very much. But now, these kids need more extreme pursuits. Instead of “Dunk Hunt,” they play “Grand Theft Auto.” Instead of inline skates, they have hoverboards. And instead of climbing basketball poles, they scale Hong Kong skyscrapers. Andrej Ciesielski is the latest young daredevil. The 17-year-old from Munich, Germany, recently scaled Hong Kong’s Yat Chau International Plaza and the China Online Building without any safety equipment. Joined by Alexander Remnev (Russian…no surprise there), the entire adventure was caught on camera. And now that he’s conquered Hong Kong, Andrej wants to travel to New York City. Do you think he’d be welcome at 432 Park Avenue?

  • Save Yourself From Ebola With Cam’ron Face Masks

    Just because we’re all freaking out over getting Ebola, we shouldn’t have to compromise our hip fashion sense by wearing those totes lame white face masks. Cam’ron is making sure we all look our best without compromising our immune systems by creating his own brand of polypropylene masks featuring a delightful photo of Killa Cam himself. You can pre-order yours now from Dipset for $19.99, but our short attention spans probably won’t be focused on the nefarious virus by the time the masks ship November 7. Let’s hope another epidemic scare comes our way so this business venture won’t be in vain. You know, it’s about time SARS made a comeback…

  • We Can’t Stop Watching This Japanese USB Lighter Commercial [Video]

    A couple years ago, Jii, a Japanese company that produces a lighter that is powered via USB charge, became Internet famous for their bizarre commercial. But like most things on the web, we quickly forgot about it. But apparently Jii is still a thing and they’re still producing wacky commercials. This soccer-themed cartoon is impossible to figure out (what does soccer have to do with smoking?) but we can’t stop watching it. We don’t even smoke, but for some reason we have been hypnotized into desiring this device.

  • 50 Times That New York City’s Bad Elmo Was The Biggest Creeper In America [Photos]

    Elmo is a American institution so how it’s possible that creepy bums in Times Square can use his iconic likeness to lure unsuspecting tourists to take photos for money? It is quite astounding. Especially when Times Square Elmo has a criminal rap sheet that includes assault on children, racial slurs and drug dealing, just to name a few. Here are some of Bad Elmo’s finest moments in Times Square.

  • Man Builds Jet-Powered Beetle Because He Can

    In American, we men like our cars big and powerful. That’s why we always giggle a bit when one of our buds buys himself a Volkswagen Beetle. C’mon, the damn car came with a flower vase! But in the hands of a mechanical engineer like Ron Patrick of California, the Beetle can become the most badass car on the road. Patrick has spent about $200,000 fitting a 1500hp jet engine to the back of his VW Beetle. Why did he choose the iconic bug? “Because it looks cool with the jet and it shows it off well.” Well there’s no arguing with that. Patrick has no idea how fast the car will go, since the speedometer only goes to 140 mph. Best of all, and much to the chagrin of California’s finest, the Beetle is totally street legal! And Patrick’s next project? Strapping two jets to his wife’s Honda Metropolitan Scooter. Yup. For more info and photos, check out Ron Patrick Stuff.

  • Norway’s New Currency Is A Modern Design Masterpiece

    Norway’s national bank, Norges Bank, held a contest calling for new currency designs with a theme of “the sea.” Finding it too difficult to choose just one winner, the bank actually used designs from two different firms, one for the front of the notes and another for the back. Snøhetta went with a modern design featuring pixelated images of ocean scenes while The Metric System took a more traditional approach with ornate drawings of fish and ships. These images released by the bank are low resolution so as to not aid counterfeiters and still need to have security features added. After that, the new kroners will enter circulation in 2017.

  • Pumpkin Spice Everything: 50 Brands Embracing The Epidemic

    Seasons eatings!

  • Disturbing Freshman Hazing Causes New Jersey High School To Cancel Football Season

    Although Sayreville War Memorial High School in New Jersey had its entire football season cut earlier this week by the local school superintendent, the exact reasons were not made public. But NJ.com, citing the parent of a player, now has the disturbing details of locker-room hazing that gets, at the very least, uncomfortably close to sexual assault. “It would start with a howling noise from a senior football player,” Matthew Stanmyre reports, “and then the locker room lights were abruptly shut off.”

  • Texts From Your Ex Are Hilarious And Depressing

    Maybe you have a pathetic ex who texts every time they’re drunk about how much they miss you even though they treated you like crap the whole time you were in a relationship together. Or maybe you are that ex. Either way, it’s a situation we are all familiar with. A new Instagram account, TextsFromYourEx, shares real texts from exes venting their hatred of each other or asking for their Jamie Oliver cookbooks back. Looking through these, you’ve really got to admire the tenacity of married men in winning back their mistresses. Or just cringe.

  • The Art Of Corn Mazes [33 Photos]

    Could you lend us your ear for a second? We just want to tell you about these amazing maize mazes. Not to sound corny, but here in Hoboken we don’t usually get a chance to see such things. Do you know a corn maze artist who could field some questions? We promise not to stalk them. Aw, shucks, we’re all out of puns. But seriously…why would someone choose Al Roker as a corn maze subject?

  • Pretty Girls With Thumb Faces [Photos]

    All these girls, in their natural state are very beautiful. But when they tuck the chin back and shoot from the ground up they look more like Honey Boo Boo’s Mama, who looks exactly like a thumb, and less like Alexandria Morgan. Submit your #thumbfaces to us on social so we can share them with the world!

  • These Dogs Are Surprisingly Good Surfers [23 Photos]

    Last weekend, Huntington Beach, California hosted the sixth annual Surf City Surf Dog competition. Billed as “three days of doggone fun,” the event features a costume contest, dog adoptions, and, best of all, a surfing competition where the dogs are strapped to boards and do their best to ride the waves. There are four weight-class divisions and even a tandem event, where their owners join in on the fun. The dogs are judged on how long they’re able to stay on the board and how confident they appear. By the looks of it, some of them seem to know what they’re doing more than we would. For more info, check out Surf City Surf Dog.

  • 25 Of The Worst School Commutes In The World

    I hated waiting more than 10 minutes for the bus in the dead of winter when it was under 30 degrees, got forbid it was snowing out. But it’s important not to forget that, in some parts of the world, school can be a hard-won luxury. Many children throughout the world have to take the most incredible and unimaginable routes in order to receive the education that some of us may take for granted.

  • 25 Subway Passengers Who Don’t Give A Damn

    When you first move to a big city with a subway system, such as New York, it can be a bit intimidating. You try to avoid contact or bumping into strangers while constantly looking at the map to make sure you don’t miss your stop. Everyone seems to be a weirdo and they can sense you’re scared and unfamiliar with what you’re doing. But soon you acclimate yourself to your new underground life and begin to feel at home and relaxed on the subway. But some folks take it too far. Some of them forgo clothing while others bring their own comfy chairs. They sleep on the stranger next to them and urinate on the floor. We combed Imgur and found 25 such weirdos to serve as a guide of what not to do. Oh yeah, and never enter an empty car. There’s always a reason it’s empty and it’s never good.

  • Taylor Swift Acknowledges Meme; Wins Our Hearts

    We may not be huge fans of Taylor Swift’s music, which is to be expected since we’re definitely not her target demographic, but over the years she’s proved to be a good person with a great sense of humor about herself. If her constant communications with fans or ability to laugh at her reputation for doomed relationships didn’t win you over, then what she did last night should be just what you need. You may remember the meme, pictured below, involving a story about a girl named becky, who looks suspiciously like Taylor Swift, who overdosed after snorting marijuana, ending with the famous line “no its becky.” Well last night Taylor Swift was photographed wearing a “no its becky” shirt, complete with poor grammar. What, that’s enough for you to lover her, too? Then check out those legs!
