For Movember, this guy grew a moustache that turned into a chest hair cat. Ha! Geddit? Cheshire cat? Chest hair cat? Mercy.
Jonathan Burnside explained, “I just did a handlebar moustache and then cut half of it off. I made a template to get the basic shape. Then I shaved negative space lines for the details, which did not show up on camera. Then my wife did an outline in eye liner, which also did not show up on camera. Then I just went ahead and outlined it in Sharpie.”

Looking for a way to keep people out of your personal space? Check out Spike Away, an invention from industrial designer Siew Ming Cheng.
As an undergraduate at the National University of Singapore, Chen took a workshop by German furniture designer Werner Aisslinger, who told students to create a “Chindogu” solution. Chindogu is “a Japanese term for a gadget designed to solve one mundane, everyday problem,” says Fast Company.
Cheng chose crowding on public transit.
I have mild claustrophobia and major fear of stranger germs, so this invention appeals to me quite a bit.

I have mixed feelings about Movember.
First of all, it’s kind of pink ribbony. Dudes growing moustaches doesn’t necessarily translate into more money for cancer research. Second: I understand there’s a bit of a question over the veracity with which the medical community is now pursuing prostate cancer, and that it’s possible that aggressive treatments might kill you faster than the cancer itself, which is often slow growing.
That being said, I do love a man in a moustache.
Regardless, I just wanted to get that out there and it doesn’t actually matter what I think because (it must have been love but) it’s over now. And it’s time for Decembeaver. YAY! Get ready ladies to chuck those razors and kiss your waxer goodbye until the new year!
I don’t always care for this sort of thing but the results here are actually kind of spectacular.
A dad decided to colour in his kids’ pencil drawings.
He says, “I fly out of state to work 10 days out of each month. When I go, the kids give me pictures they’ve drawn. I color them on the plane and give the pictures back to them when I return. Nothing fancy.”
I hate false modesty.

This is Gavin McInnes.
He’s one of the founders of Vice magazine and is also, apparently, known as the “Godfather of Hipsterdom,” though I have no idea who gave him that name.
I once knew Gavin a little bit, because I used to write for Vice magazine, back when it was called Voice in the … I’m gonna say early nineties. Mid nineties? Whatever. (I don’t think he has anything to do with the magazine anymore) But we’re Facebook friends, so you totally know that’s like almost besties, even though I haven’t seen him in maybe 15 years.
In this video he demonstrates how to fight a baby, using his supercute own baby as an opponent (Seriously, that kid is gorgeous. But not as gorgeous as mine). It’s clear that the kid is having an awesome time. Despite that, though, the video has been causing something of a stir online. Check out this Inside Edition report. Who is that angry woman even? Am I supposed to trust her because she’s wearing a lab coat? That is NOT how shaken baby syndrome happens. What’s going on with the world?
Anyway, here’s the video. Do you think it’s funny? Or are you angry about it? That’s a trick question since you can’t answer it, as I don’t allow comments on this blog. Too much spam. Sorry.
Some dude named Jack Vale has taken it upon himself to demonstrate what should be obvious to all of us but, clearly, isn’t: everything you post online, including your personal information, is available to everyone else to find.
It’s disturbing how clueless these people are. They think he’s PSYCHIC!!! Even better are the tools who threaten to call the cops - after he tells them the truth. Way to go, geniuses.
Here’s the thing: this is kinda funny but it’s also kind of not. People can find you based on what you post online. Be aware of that.
I can’t stop looking at this Tumblr.
It blows my mind that someone out there is painstakingly looking through photos of male models and kittens, searching for matches. Because this seems like one of those things that looks easy but would actually take up a lot of time. Labour of love, I assume.
If you’ve ever wondered what it looks like inside a bird house, now you can find out.
This little dude has a sweet pad, man.
I love this, mainly because I have a visceral reaction to miniature things.
Have you seen this yet? I would have posted it yesterday but ran out of time.
It’s Jean Claude Van Damme doing the splits between two moving trucks to demonstrate the “precision and stability of Volvo Dynamic Steering.”
I wonder how they talked him into this.
My eagle-eyed friend Neil, always on the lookout for stuff for me to blog about, because he’s just that kind of guy, sent me this video. It didn’t, however, come with an explanation.
It’s called “Late For Meeting” and is by one David Lewandowski.
I guess this floppy naked man is late for a meeting? That seems to be the only explanation.
It appears to be a follow up to “Going to the Store,” also by Lewandowski and starring the same guy.
