  • You Probably Shouldn’t Buy This Lego Strip Club for Your Kids

    Remember all the joy you got as a kid when you tore apart the wrapping paper on your Christmas gift only to reveal a Lego set? You’d spend the entirety of Christmas break constructing then playing with those little yellow folks in their imaginary world. If you have kids, you should ensure they experience the same joy by giving them a Lego set this year. But for God’s sake, don’t buy them this one. Citizen Brick, producers of custom Lego items aimed mostly at adults, has created their greatest product yet with the Citizen Brick Center for the Performing Arts. But don’t count on seeing the symphony or a production of Don Giovanni at this performing arts center. It’s actually a strip club playset, complete with pole, dancers, creepy DJ, and dollar bills to make it rain. The detail is extraordinary, with pink leopard print floors, zebra print furniture, working led lights, and holographic mirrors aplenty. For added realism, you might want to poor some bubble gum vodka over the whole thing to give it that disgusting stickiness and maybe a spray or twelve of the cheapest perfume you can find (perhaps some Designer Imposters).

  • 15 Photos From Argentina’s Amateur Pole Dance Competition…For Science!

  • Which Celebrities Do These Celebrities Look Like?

    Redditor Eighter had enough of his Facebook friends flooding his feed with pictures showing which celebrities they look most like and decided that he wanted to see who the celebrities looked like. Using this Celebrity Look Alike Generator, he put together these images showing just who your favorite stars look like. Surprisingly, they apparently look nothing like themselves. But Danny Glover and Fred Durst? Now that you mention it…

  • Would You Go To A Bar Run Out Of Someone’s Basement? [8 Photos]

    It’s not all that crazy to see a bar operating out of a building’s basement, but usually that building is a commercial property. And there would definitely be something weird about a bar that was run out of the basement of a house. That’s probably why such a bar is a rare sight (legally speaking, at least). In Maryland, there is only one such bar and it has been operating for more than 50 years. Located in Pasadena, Maryland, just south of Baltimore, Irv’s Basement Bar has been operated by 91-year-old Irv Koch since 1963. It was then that he and his brother, both plumbers, bought the property and opened the bar. However, the bar’s exact location is a secret kept by regulars who know to knock on Irv’s front door and ask him to open the bar when they’re in need of libations. So, anyone in the know want to get us in if we travel down to Maryland?

  • Happy Monday! Here Are Some Flying Dogs [18 Photos]

    Look! Up in the Sky! It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s a flying dog! And it looks terrified. Although the horrified looks from these dogs would lead you to believe German photographer Julia Christe is some sort of sadist (a sadistic German? Nein!), the pooches are actually just dropped from a low height onto a mattress by their owners. Wind machines and good timing help capture the hilarious expressions. And this is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to Julia Christe’s animal photos. You can find more from this series and plenty of others at Julia Christe Photography.

  • Vape Is The Oxford Dictionaries Word Of The Year

    It’s been a great year for stupid words, but of all the poor portmanteaus and atrocious abbreviations, one stood out from all the rest. And apparently that one was vape. As Oxford so eloquently puts it, vape means to “inhale and exhale the vapour produced by an electronic cigarette or similar device.” There is also a related noun, “vaping.” Vaping was actually coined before vape, with its first use pertaining to vapour-producing tobacco products occurring way back in 1983. But it was in 2009 that vape really started to catch on. And in the last two years, use of the term has exploded. What other asinine words did vape beat out for its title? Here’s the list from Oxford Dictionaries: bae n. used as a term of endearment for one’s romantic partner. budtender n. a person whose job is to serve customers in a cannabis dispensary or shop. contactless adj. relating to or involving technologies that allow a smart card, mobile phone, etc. to contact wirelessly to an electronic reader, typically in order to make a payment. indyref, n. an abbreviation of ‘independence referendum’, in reference to the referendum on Scottish independence, held in Scotland on 18 September 2014, in more »

  • An Artist Wants To Live Another Person’s Life Via VR Goggles For 28 Days

    Would you like to experience a random person’s life for 28 days? But with no control over what they do? Of course you wouldn’t. That would drive anyone mad. But how mad? We’ll soon find out, all for the sake of art! Artist Mark Farid intends on wearing a VR headset 24 hours a day for 28 days. He will be viewing the life of a heterosexual male who’s in a relationship and is known only as the Input. That means for 28 days, Farid won’t see his own body or surroundings, just what the Input experiences. Including sexy time with his significant other! For the duration of the project, Farid will inhabit a space with a bed, toilet, and shower that will be on constant display to his audience. There will also be a screen projecting just what Farid sees for the audience to view. Will Farid lose his sense of self? Probably. Will he lose his mind. Most certainly! Which is why Farid will talk to a psychologist for one hour each day (while still wearing the headset) and will be under constant medical supervision. Of course, a project such as this comes with many expenses. A Kickstarter more »

  • Meet Layka, An Amazing War Veteran Who Sacrificed A Limb To Protect Her Country [Photos]

    While serving in Afghanistan, U.S. military combat dog Layka was shot four times by the enemy at point-blank range. Despite her injuries, she still attacked and subdued the shooter, saving her handler and the other members of the team. Seven hours of surgery and the amputation of one leg saved her life. Her handler, Staff Sgt. Julian McDonald, fought hard to adopt her and she’s now become a part of his family (watch the touching video on NatGeo by clicking the thumbnail below). Layka is the type of veteran that usually gets forgotten about On Veterans Day. Layka served in the military and gave one of her limbs to protect her country. Never forget that humans aren’t the only ones who serve. Popular adages may promise every dog its day, but the sad reality is canines that serve in the US military — sniffing out bombs, mines and other explosive devices — aren’t even guaranteed return transport after multiple tours of duty overseas. Often, they are left behind with new owners abroad when their handlers return home. “The dogs and these veterans work side by side. To separate them, I think, is a crime,” says Lois Pope, a longtime veterans more »

  • Take A Sad Look At Kickstarters That Raised $0

    In the dark days before crowd funding websites, it was always extremely awkward when your friend would approach you with their bad business idea. You’d have to either find a diplomatic way of calling them a moron or give them faux support in hopes that someone else would have the balls to tell them they’re a moron. But thanks to Kickstarter and Go Fund Me and other money-grubbing websites, you’re off the hook! Your friend will either find strangers who are also morons and will give them money or they won’t raise a dime and realize they are, in fact, a moron. What happens to those Kickstarter campaigns that don’t raise any money at all? Italian artist Silvio Lorusso has been collecting them, and his archive of over 9000 is available to browse at Kickended. We traveled down the rabbit hole and pulled some of our favorite failed campaigns. Can you believe these all raised $0?? Who wouldn’t visit a Hawaiian Shirt Musuem? And a movie about an angry clown paying a ticket for a broken headlight? Certainly that’s worth $525!

  • Brilliant Man Photoshops Himself Into Kim And Kanye’s Family Photos

    What else is there to say other than these are incredible works of sheer genius? We just hope these are only the beginning because it’s a pretty safe bet that Kim and Kanye will keep taking terrible fmaily photos that are just begging for more of this treatment.

  • 6 Heroic Military Dogs Will Be Honored In Veterans Day Parade For Their Life Saving Duties

    Popular adages may promise every dog its day, but the sad reality is canines that serve in the US military — sniffing out bombs, mines and other explosive devices — aren’t even guaranteed return transport after multiple tours of duty overseas. Often, they are left behind with new owners abroad when their handlers return home. “The dogs and these veterans work side by side. To separate them, I think, is a crime,” says Lois Pope, a longtime veterans advocate who began lobbying last year to return all four-legged defenders to the states for adoption by the servicement with whom they’d bonded.

  • Christopher Walken Was A Creepy Child Clown

    Christopher Walken has been acting since 1953, when he was just 10 years old. Ever the entertainer, young Christopher also enjoyed the creepy art of clowning. These photos were taken in 1955, and even if you’re not afraid of clowns, knowing this kid would grow up to torture and kill Eric Stoltz in “The Prophecy” makes the whole situation a tad unnerving. And if you’ve been watching “American Horror Story” this season, I think you can agree that we’re all lucky his parents allowed him to become an actor.

  • These 16 Babies Look Like Celebrities

    Somebody call Maury Povich—these babies have famous faces and somebody has some explaining to do. Just at look at that mini Mark Wahlberg! He’s probably got the numbers of every girl in his preschool in his Playskool Elmo Cell Phone. And that poor Gandalf-looking baby is going to look eleventy-one by the time he enters kindergarten.

  • This Ralph Wiggum Cake Hurts Our Brains

    Take a look at that Ralph Wiggum drawing above. Pretty neat, right? Well fooled you, dummy! That drawing is actually a cake! Kylie Mangles of Freshly Squeez’d is a designer who also happens to make incredible cakes. To achieve the animated look with perfect cel-shading, the cake must be viewed from a certain angle, which when you think about it, makes it even more impressive. Even with that much diabetes-inducing fondant, we’d choo-choo-choose to devour that cake.
