Nice man drives dogs around in dog train



Dog_Train
The sad part about this story is that this 80-year-old retiree lives on a street where evil horrible people regularly abandon dogs (WTF, AMERICA???).

The happy part is that adopts them and drives them around on a train.

“We live down on a dead-end street, where me and my brother have a horse barn,” Eugene Bostick of Fort Worth told The Dodo. “People sometimes come by and dump dogs out here, leaving them to starve. So, we started feeding them, letting them in, taking them to the vet to get them spayed and neutered. We made a place for them to live.”

Over the years, Bostick has apparently taken in “countless” abandoned dogs. But wait! There’s MOAR!

“One day I was out and I seen this guy with a tractor who attached these carts to pull rocks. I thought, ‘Dang, that would do for a dog train,'” said Bostick. “I’m a pretty good welder, so I took these plastic barrels with holes cut in them, and put wheels under them and tied them together.”

And that’s how the dog train came to be.

What a great guy. Someone should buy him a nice present.

Tauntaun cookies spill candy guts

tauntaun-cookie-background-1024x753Someone made tauntaun cookies with candy innards that spill out.

This is the sort of thing I will never ever do myself. But if you are the kind of person who does this sort of thing, here is the recipe. Even better if you live close to me and can make them and then drop some off at my house. Just for me. My husband is “paleo,” which is synonymous with “crazy,” so he doesn’t eat cookies whether they have candy innards or not. I don’t understand it either.

A hummingbird feeder you wear on your face

eye2eye_hummingbird_feederThis is the Eye2Eye wearable hummingbird feeder from HeatStick.  You wear it on your head and tiny little hummingbirds come and eat right in front of your face.

From the website:

“It is based on a Full-Face Face Shield with a miniaturized hummingbird feeding tube built into it on the inside. Hummingbirds feed right in front of your eyes, right between your eyes, about an inch above your nose …”

Yay.

Here is a video of it in action. What I can’t tell is how long that guy sat there waiting for a hummingbird to come and eat from his face feeder. Maybe it’s a trained hummingbird. I don’t know if that’s a thing, but it would be cool, right?

This is a slug that looks like a bunny

slugbunny2

It’s rare that I think slugs are kind of cute, but this one is. It’s a Jorunna Parva and he’s got little ears and everything. Sort of. Bored Panda says, “This tiny sea slug’s bunny ears are actually rhinophores, or chemosensory scent/taste organs that help them detect chemicals in the water and make their way across the ocean floor. They can be found from the Indian Ocean to the Philippines to Japan.”

Slugbunny would have been a good name for an all-girl 1990s rock band.

The fastest dog on two front paws!

jiff-konjoThis is Konjo. He is a chihuahua and he is the fastest dog on two paws, because that is an actual title that he won.

“Konjo has claimed the title of fastest 5 metres on front paws by a dog with a time of 2.39 sec,” says the Guinness Book of World Records website, “smashing [former title holder] Jiff [the pomeranian]’s record of 7.76 sec. The attempt took place at Tustin Sports Park, Tustin, California, USA on 22 December 2014.”

How we’re only finding out about this now is anyone’s guess.

Here are some pictures of Konjo walking on his front paws, and video.

The R2D2 remote controlled mini fridge is the best remote controlled mini fridge

This is the coolest thing you will see all day. I have no idea what this guy is saying but I like the seriousness of his affect. He’s probably saying “I have just established myself as the coolest person on Earth, bitches. Now get me a drink. Oh, no, you don’t have to because my R2D2 remote controlled mini fridge will do that for me. You go make my bed.”


Panda font makes your communications more panda-y

giant-panda-font-wwf-14Wondering what font to use on your resume? WWF Japan has created a Panda Font to raise awareness and encourage donations for their panda fund-raising campaign. The letters look like pandas and it was designed together with Ogilvy & Mather Japan.

Giant pandas are endangered. Only 1,864 of them exist in the wild. Using this font will help raise awareness of their plight, says Bored Panda, except that I don’t know where you can download it.  Close ups here.
