Incredible Invention of the Day

“Crumbs left over from an Oreo package should never go to waste,” say Miami Ad School students Michael Malz, Jacob Gale, Kelly Saucier, and Michael Grosso. “Oreo Crumb Case is a ‘tea bag’ enclosure for Oreo crumbs that will infuse your milk with Oreo flavor. After all, Oreo is milk’s favorite cookie.”

It’s… it’s beautiful.

This Looks Legit of the Day

This Looks Legit of the Day: An Original carte de visite, c. 1870, “showing a man who looks exactly like Nick Cage [sic].”

eBay seller jack_mord says: “Personally, I believe it’s him and that he is some sort of walking undead / vampire, et cetera, who quickens / reinvents himself once every 75 years or so.”

I was under the impression that this was already a well-known fact.


Last Night Ozzy Osbourne Saved My Life of the Day

An 8-year-old boy with autism missing for over a day has been found thanks to the San Bernardino Sheriff’s Department and “No More Tears” by Ozzy Osbourne.

Rescuers used a couple of Joshua Robb’s favorite songs — the one by Ozzy and “Good Time” by Alan Jackson” — to lure him out of woods near his Twin Peaks elementary school.

He reportedly walked up to the search party and said “thank you, you saved me.”

Joshua’s parents, who face child abuse charges for allegedly tying him to a pole, recently lost their home to foreclosure. Joshua had been placed under the protective care of a teacher; it is believed he ran away to find his parents.

Ridiculous Roller Coaster of the Day

Opening this month at the Fuji-Q Highlandamusement park near Mount Fuji, the Takabisha roller coaster boasts the world’s steepest freefall: A gut-melting 121 degrees capable of inducing g-force levels equivalent to those experienced by fighter pilots.

The 141-foot, 62mph drop is merely the cherry that tops a 2-mile-long roller coaster cake filled with seven major twists and turns.

When Celebrities Allegedly Attack of the Day

Lost actor Matthew Fox may wish he had a magical island to disappear to after he was arrested early this morning for allegedly punching a female bus driver twice because she wouldn’t let him board.

According to a police report, Fox asked the 29-year-old driver for a ride back to his hotel, but she refused, telling him the bus had been rented out to a private party. Fox then allegedly struck the woman in the chest and stomach before she retaliated by punching him in the mouth — a strike which reportedly broke her hand.

The actor, who is currently shooting World War Z, was released to a friend and returned to his hotel. The incident is currently being investigated; a rep for Fox has yet to issue a statement.

They Don’t Shoot Bullies of the Day

Jennifer McKendrick (AKA Jen McKen), a self-employed photographer from Pennsylvania, recently came across a Facebook page created by a number of teenage girls as a sort of “Burn Book” for the purposes of “say[ing] mean and hurtful things about their class mates.”

“It was beyond ‘your clothes are ugly’ or ‘you don’t have any brand clothes’ or ‘you are ugly, your hair is not right,” she told 6 News. “It was vicious. It was talking about sexuality.”

McKendrick recognized some of these girls as clients who had senior picture photoshoots scheduled with her. She promptly sent those girls (and their parents) an email letting them know that she will not be able to proceed with the sessions.

“[H]ow I could spend 2 hours with someone during our session trying to take beautiful photos of them knowing they could do such UGLY things,” she wrote on her blog. “Realistically, I know by canceling their shoots it’s not going to make them ‘nicer people’ but I refuse to let people like that represent my business.”

McKendrick says she’s received emails back from two of the girls’ parents, expressing shock at their daughters’ actions and apologizing for their behavior. “So far I haven’t received any backlash but I’m ready for it,” says McKen, who understands that this decision may affect her business.

But her new policy stands, cemented with a powerful motto: “If you are ugly on the inside, I’m sorry but I won’t take your photos to make you look pretty on the outside.”

The Truth Is Behind There of the Day

Is that an alien spacecraft zipping across the sky behind Labour MP Tom Watson? Of course it is, what else could it be? A bird? A plane? Some other logical explanation?

That’s crazy talk.
