The New McDonald's Straw Dedicated To Optimum Milkshake Consumption

McDonald's has always tried to personalize the experience of dining at their restaurants in every way possible, from the (formerly clowny) decor to the food packaging to the little golden arches on every napkin.

They even have the largest drinking straws in the fast food biz, which some people feel are partly responsible for the rise of obesity in America, and now McDonald's is about to make history again with their new S.T.R.A.W.

It stands for Suction Tube for Reverse Axial Withdrawal, and it's the most over-engineered straw ever created, made to optimize consumption of McDonald's new half-mint half-chocolate shake.

Since no-one wants their chocolate to mint ratio to be compromised by poor technology, mcdonald’s turned to two highly-qualified engineering firms, JACE and NK labs to create the STRAW.

The STRAW is a J-shaped, snorkel-like vessel that provides optimal flavor flow dynamics. the tube has side openings to suck in both layers at once, and is engineered to work just as well at the bottom of the shake as it did at the top.

The fact that McDonald's hired two engineering firms to create a new milkshake straw may seem a bit crazy, but if you're a fan of milkshakes you know you wanna try one!

The Han Solo Story

The next movie in the "A Star Wars Story" series will tell the adventures of Han Solo in his younger days. The yet-untitled film is expected to be in theaters on on May 25, 2018, although that may change. Principle photography began this week, and Disney/Lucasfilm has released details and a photograph of the cast.



The movie will star Alden Ehrenreich as Solo, Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian, and Joonas Suotamo as Chewbacca. The 6' 10" Suotamo played Peter Mayhew's body double in episodes VII and VIII. Mayhew may return for episode IX, depending on his health (he is 72). Suotamo posted a tribute to Mayhew on the official announcement of his Han Solo movie role.

These Donuts Come With a Shot of Whiskey Inside

We've posted a lot of crazy donuts in the past, but we've never seen them with a shot of alcohol inside. You can get a hold of these boozy, sweet treats at Denver's Habit Doughnut Dispensary and you can choose any liqour inside including rum, whiskey and vodka. Popular combinations include the Plain Jane and Blazed infused with Fireball, the new French Toast with whiskey, the Carbon (chocolate and espresso) with Kahlua, and the signature Habit Jumbleberry with vodka.


The alcohol comes in a pipette shoved in the donut so you can inject it into your mouth directly or eat a drippy, bite of booze-filled donuts. Adding a shot to your donut only costs $2, or $24 for a dozen.

See more pictures of the awesome donut combos on Thrillist.

What Flight Attendants Wish Passengers Would Stop Doing

(Paper Airplane available at NeatoShop)

We've all been on airplanes and been driven nuts by people behind us kicking seats, people next to us leaning into our seats and babies screaming for hours on end. But flight attendants fly every day and they not only see these rude behaviors but also ones that only they are aware of. So what drives them nuts? This Travel and Leisure article features answers from over 25 different flight attendants. A few obvious ones include not reading the menu and then expecting the flight attendant to explain every available beverage or not saying how you want your coffee prepared.

See what the other attendants hate here.

The Pineapple Pizza Scandal

Pizza is pretty universal, but it varies from place to place. People will argue all day about pineapple pizza, which was developed not in Hawaii, but in Canada, which caused a small kerfuffle in that nation when President Guðni Jóhannesson of Iceland dissed pineapple pizza.

President Guoni Johannesson recently told a group of high school students during a Q&A that he was fundamentally opposed to pineapple on pizza — and that's not all. He went on to say if he could, he would ban pineapple as a pizza topping.

Johannesson clearly did not know his opinion would offend or even make the news. He responded on Facebook.

I like pineapples, just not on pizza. I do not have the power to make laws which forbid people to put pineapples on their pizza. I am glad that I do not hold such power. Presidents should not have unlimited power. I would not want to hold this position if I could pass laws forbidding that which I don´t like. I would not want to live in such a country. For pizzas, I recommend seafood.

Seafood? It's not all that uncommon on European pizzas, although it was pointed out that "fiskmeti" should have been translated as "fish" instead of seafood. Fish pizza? Like anchovies? Everyone has their own tastes. In Sweden, they use all kinds of fruit and other pizza toppings an American wouldn't consider. -via Metafilter

Which topping should never appear on a pizza? You can select more than one.

Competitive Eating in the 17th Century

Competitive eating has been described as a particularly American thing, but showing off how much one can consume did not originate in the U.S. Nicholas Wood, the Great Eater of Kent, was a 17th-century Englishman who would demonstrate astounding gastronomic feats, often on a bet, and was sponsored for a time by poet John Taylor.

Wood was a self-made farmer when Taylor found him, but the Great Eater had already gained a reputation as a nearly superhuman feaster. Wood made a name for himself as a glutton by performing feats of feasting at fairs and festivals, as well as by taking part in dares and wagers with nobles. As recounted in Jan Bondeson’s book, The Two-Headed Boy, and Other Medical Marvels, Wood had, at various times, devoured such incredible meals as seven-dozen rabbits in one sitting, or an entire dinner feast intended for eight people.

Wood didn't care much about what he was dared to eat, and at various times consumed an entire mutton shoulder (bones included), a dozen loaves of bread soaked in ale, and 60 eggs. Read about the Great Eater of Kent at Atlas Obscura.

Holy Sheep - Keep Your Mouth Clean And Your Thoughts Dirty


Holy sheep by NemiMakeit

They said "thou shalt not cuss or use foul language" and thus the Holy Sheep was born, replacing our improper slogan with one that conjures up a funny image. But it also seems to make sense if you think about it- the shepherd, the lambs and the sheep, all common symbols for the faithful, and thus not so far fetched when you say "blessed be the sheep". But wouldn't you rather be the shepherd than the sheep? Or maybe the black sheep who refuses to be herded, the one who uses that other word instead of sheep that seems to burn the ears of the polite so badly...

Declare your individual sense of style with this Holy Sheep t-shirt by NemiMakeit, it's a darn good way to make people smile wherever you go without the use of foul language!

14 Facts You May Not Know About Johnny Carson

Neatorama presents a guest post from actor, comedian, and voiceover artist Eddie Deezen. Visit Eddie at his website or at Facebook.

Incredible as it may seem to all of us Johnny Carson fans, it has now been 25 years since Johnny Carson last hosted The Tonight Show. On May 22, 1992, Johnny hosted his 4,531st and final Tonight Show. As over 50 million viewers tuned in, there were no guests that night, and Johnny sat alone on a stool and conducted a retrospective hour and said a heartfelt final goodbye to his fans.

Since Johnny's retirement, as all the other talk show hosts will freely admit, Johnny has been irreplaceable and remains the #1 most beloved talk show host in the history of television. Let's take a look at a few little-known facts about Johnny Carson.
      
1. He started out in show business as a magician, calling himself "the great Carsoni."

2. Early in his career, Johnny also worked as a ventriloquist. His dummy's name was "Eddie."

Rare Photos Of Jean-Michel Basquiat Before He Was Famous

Jean-Michel Basquiat didn't live long enough to see how his loose, abstract style would inspire artists to make a beautiful mess, nor did he get to see the awesome movie about him starring Jeffrey Wright.

But while he lived he saw damn near every side of life in NYC, from squatting in abandoned buildings with junkies to living the lush life with wealthy patrons in artists' lofts and penthouses.

Basquiat saw so much more than other young people, and his vision made him famous once he started sharing it with us all through his paintings.

These rare photos were taken by his girlfriend Alexis Adler in the East Village apartment they shared in 1979, at a time when young Basquiat was still free- free from fame, free from drugs, and free to really enjoy life.

Pix2pix Tensorflow Artificial Image Creation

Christopher Hesse created a way for internet users to experiment with artificial intelligence-created images. The idea is that you draw an outline, and the machine uses the info that it already knows to create your image. There are four generators, each with their own database of information: facades, cats, shoes, and handbags. This is an example from the facades generator.



Pretty neat, huh? What could possibly go wrong? Well, what happened was that, internet users being who they are, everyone wanted to use the cat generator, which uses a database of about 2,000 cat images. This is what happens when you draw a fairly good cat.



And this is what happens when you draw a not-so-good outline of a cat. I drew this.



But not everyone drew a regular everyday cat. That's when it gets horrifying.

Some folks drew things other than cats.

A Brave Soul From Saskatchewan Wore JNCO Jeans For Seven Days To Find Himself

JNCO took the fashion world by storm in the 90s by making ridiculously baggy jeans with the widest legs ever produced, which made them extra floppy, saggy and often made them look like an ankle length skirt.

With JNCO set to bring big legs back to the jeans scene VICE writer Devin Pacholik decided to see what he missed by not owning a pair of JNCO jeans in the 90s- so he bought a pair and wore them for a week straight.

Devin wore them to the symphony, the mall, while giving an university lecture, while hanging out with friends, while performing at a podcast taping attended by 200 people and out on a date with his wife.

After each event Devin asked people for feedback on his big, bold fashion statement and they told him things like "these are literally the worst things I've ever seen", "I thought you were going to kill me" and "I love them, I have the same ones".  

And through it all Devin learned about trends, unwanted attention and the folly of using too much fabric to make a pair of jeans.

A Camera Lens Made From 32,000 Drinking Straws

Photographers have always known they don't need fancy equipment to take a picture, because many early cameras were nothing more than a box with a hole in it and a glass plate covered with emulsion inside.

So when shutterbugs make their own cameras it's so they can take an unique image with their handmade creation, one that can't be taken or replicated with a normal camera.

That search for an unique image is what led Mich Farrell and Cliff Haynes to combine 32,000 drinking straws into an unusual analog "Straw Camera" that takes the most unusual photos.

Here's an explanation of how their straw camera works:

The straw camera measures 20 x 24 inch, and the two artists have experimented to produce black and white, color, and negative images. They also explored the use of corrugated plastic instead of straws, to achieve a more even effect.

Haynes explains that the straws have a ‘raw’ f stop, where a 254mm long, 22mm wide straw gives an aperture of about f127, which they used as a starting point for exposure. Each straw has its own density and hue, and the analogue creation gives a straight indexical rendering of whatever is placed directly in front of it.

Color-changing Hair Dye

If you recall mood rings from the 1970s or Hypercolor t-shirts from the '90s, you probably won't be surprised that  you can now color your hair with a dye that will change color in response to the temperature. The dye called FIRE from the company The Unseen debuted at Fashion Week.

(YouTube link)

According to Wired UK,

FIRE is designed to be responsive to temperature fluctuations, and is available in multiple colour ranges from bright red to subtle pastels. The data used to create the dye stems from the process of thermoregulation in the human skin and the colour change chemical reaction occurs in response to a certain stimuli - in this case, changes in the environment. When the temperature drops or rises, the carbon-based molecules at the core of the FIRE dye undergo a reversible reaction.

Then you'll have to watch out for this sort of reaction:



If they develop a dye that will go from white to cobalt blue, I'll be first in line. -via Uproxx

Photographer Throws Miniature Parties For The Squirrels Who Visit Her Yard

I think squirrels are swell little critters, and it really chaps my hide when I hear about people killing those little bushy tailed brats for no good reason.

However, I don't like squirrels enough to invite them into my home or party with them, but photographer Ashly Deskins does and the photos she takes at her squirrel parties are totally nuts!

Ashly sets up little parties on her back porch then waits patiently for her party guests to arrive before taking absolutely precious pictures of the squirrels eating and enjoying the festivities.

In an effort to keep the squirrels she has named Luna and Neville, and their friends, coming back to her yard Ashly is constantly changing and improving her party scenarios:

“It started with just some little props and eventually led to me buying flooring to create more detailed images,” Deskins said. “By observing the squirrels, I can determine what they feel comfortable jumping on… and what I can or can’t use.”

Space Cake Has Worlds Inside

Pedagiggle made a birthday cake for four-year-old Ilyas with a space theme. She wanted to convey the idea of outer space inside the cake as well as the decorated outside, so she created a solar system for the interior. According to the posted instructions, she made the planets by baking cake pop orbs first, then she embedded them in a marble cake with the appropriate food coloring. She also made rocket cookies and Star Wars cookies. That had to be some birthday party! -via reddit

A Reporter Interviews Reformed Zombies In "Less Than Human"

Zombie lore has changed quite a bit since the first Night Of The Living Dead film, and zombies have gone from being strictly undead eating machines to humans afflicted with a life-altering virus.

That means if and when a cure is found for their condition zombies may be able to rejoin human society, that is, if they're no longer seen as a threat:

In the aftermath of a zombie outbreak, zombies are cured and exiled to secluded camps. There has been talk about rehabilitating post-zombies back into society. Steve, the journalist reporting on the case, thinks the zombies still pose a threat to society. He ventures into one of these camps to prove to the world that rehabilitation is out the question.

(YouTube Link)

"Less Than Human" was created by a team of students at The Animation Workshop in Denmark, and it has certainly left me hungry to see more!

We Want Your Soul - Kreepy Kitties


We Want Your Soul by DeepFriedArt

Do you ever feel like your cat is looking at you funny? Have you felt like your cat was trying to stare straight into your soul when you're not looking, only to find your feeling was correct and your cat was indeed staring at you? Don't freak out when you hear this- your cat might be trying to steal your soul. Cats are born with certain magical abilities we humans can hardly understand, and their main source of power is human souls. So as long as you appease your cat and keep them happy, and try not to let them anywhere near you while you're sleeping, then you should be okay. But if their stare starts to make you feel woozy, or you feel a bit short of breath after your cat was sitting on your lap, then you may want to consider changing your name and moving far, far away before your kitty can steal your soul!

Make cat lovers smile wherever you go with this We Want Your Soul t-shirt by DeepFriedArt, it's a purr-fect way to warn humans about what those soul sucking kittehs are up to!

Zootopia Filmmakers Create Animal Parody Posters for Oscar Nominees

The Academy Awards will be bestowed on movies from 2016 this coming Sunday night, so it's time for parodies that double as promotions for the Oscars. There's a scene in the movie Zootopia (which is nominated for Best Animated Feature Film of the Year) in which one character sells bootleg movies, which are movies somewhat familiar to us but star animals and have animal-pun titles.  

You’ll find titles like Wreck-It Rhino, Meowana and Pig Hero 6 in the pile of bootleg movies, showing us what the animal versions of those movies would be like in the thriving metropolis of anthropomorphic creatures. Now the Zootopia directors Rich Moore and Byron Howard, as well as screenwriter Jared Bush, have created parody posters for some of the Oscar nominees who will be vying for an award when the awards are passed on this Sunday.  They’ve done six that are pretty amazing.

You can see all six of those posters at TVOM.

The Fascinating Love Lives of Terrible Dictators

From misogynists to sex addicts, dictators are obviously unbalanced people and their sex lives only serve to prove how unhinged they are. Over on TopTenz you can learn about ten dictators and their torrid sex lives. For example, even though Mussolini had tons of mistresses, he loathed women -with the exception of one particular mistress. And Spanish dictator Francisco Franco was celibate most of his life, but did seem to have a thing for his mother.

10 Terrible Early Drafts of Villains

It takes a bit of tweaking to get a character right for a movie, especially if it's science fiction or a comic book adaptation. What looks good on paper often doesn't translate all that well to the screen. So it's common that early drafts are tested out and changed considerably before production. Sometimes those early ideas were just plain stupid.

(YouTube link)

But thanks to archived art and screen tests, we can see what those early and awful ideas were like. Aren't you glad they tried again and again until they got it right …or at least better? -via the A.V. Club

The Small French Diner That Was Accidentally Awarded a Michelin Star

One of the greatest awards a restaurant can earn is a Michelin star, but in the case of Bourges' Bouche à Oreille, the award was a real surprise -largely because the restuarant is simply a small neighborhood diner. While the diner is good, it's by no means a gourmet, Michelin-star-level establishment. 

As it turns out the star was awarded by mistake as there was a mix up between the Bouche à Oreille in Bourges and the Bouche à Oreille in nearby Boutervilliers. The error was fixed after two days, but during that short period, the little greasy spoon was swamped with diners looking for the next great Michelin restaurant.

You can read most about the poor little diner and the fancy restaurant nearby over at Telegraph.

Trading Cards For Fictional Athletes By Cuyler Smith

In the world of sports trading cards professional athletes get all the love, but what about all those professional actors who play athletes in movies and TV shows? Don't they deserve their own commemorative trading cards too?

Illustrator Cuyler Smith clearly agrees, because he has created artwork for two different sets of trading cards starring the stars in their sportiest roles.

There's a card for Danny McBride as Kenny Powers, Keanu Reeves as Shane Falco, Michael J. Fox as "Teen Wolf" Scott Howard, and Chevy Chase as Ty Webb in Caddyshack 1 and 2 too.

Na-na-na-na indeed sir! Cuyler's way too cool illustrations for Trading Cards 2, the trading card set of my unathletic dreams, is currently being shown at Gallery 1988 now through March 7th.

They'll sweep you off your feet!

This Is What Happens When Escalators Acquire A Taste For Shoes

(Image Link)

As a child my sister was terrified of escalators and I never understood why, until one of my friends almost lost a toe to some particularly sharp teeth on the edge of an escalator.

He was wearing flip flops at the time so the argument could be made that it was as much his fault as the escalator's, but seeing his toe after that incident made me switch to stairs for years to come.

(Image Link)

Escalators are safe until they decide to drop out beneath your feet or gobble up your shoe, so ride that moving staircase with caution, folks- and keep all your toes where they belong!

How the BBC makes Planet Earth look like a Hollywood movie

If you've been watching the BBC TV series Planet Earth II, you've no doubt been amazed at the wildlife footage. It almost looks like a Hollywood action film -a blockbuster, even. A lot of that is due to new filmmaking technology.

(YouTube link)

The BBC has been making nature documentaries for 60 years, and they have steadily gotten better as the cameras and equipment get better. This video from Vox gives the short history of that technology and how it can be used to film fascinating creatures that don't follow a script. This is "part 1 of 3," so we can look forward to more behind-the-scenes looks at how Planet Earth was made. -via Tastefully Offensive
