Given how popular cats are on the internet, it’s no surprise that Friskies — makers of delicious cat food (or so our cats tell us) for over 50 years — recently rolled out a line of tablet-based apps just for cats. Featuring movements, shapes and colors tailored to appeal to kitty’s sensibilities, your feline friend can now download titles like ‘Cat Fishing’ ‘Tasty Treasures Hunt’ and ‘Party Mix-Up’ from the iTunes App Store and Android Market (if you don’t mind a couple of scratches on your screen). Watch some cats test drive the apps below:
If you’ve ever longed to feel your own gentle caress, long no more. Produced by the Kajimoto Laboratory at Tokyo’s University of Electro-Communications, the Sense-Roid is electronic apparatus consisting of two sensor-filled jackets and a mannequin that allows the user to feel the sensation of hugging him or herself.
What is it about slow motion effects that scare us so? The day already brought us a slow-mo pageant girl videos and now the screeching sound of dial-up internet connection has gotten the treatment as well. Who knew that a noise that evokes memories of early internet for so many of us had the potential to sound like the score to ‘Lost’ when slowed down by 700%? Check it out below and then listen to the ‘Lost’ opening to compare:
TLC reality show (and guilty pleasure) ‘Toddlers & Tiaras’ chronicles the sometimes controversial world of child beauty pageants and one its tiny stars, like season two breakout Little Eden Wood. Confessional footage of the six year old complaining about the discomforts of hairspray was slowed down, making this normally cute kid a bit creepy.
Hope she wasn’t planning to make meringue. Charlotte Matthews, a cake decorator from Rochdale, England beat the odds this past Sunday when she cracked open 29 double-yolk eggs in a row. According to PoultryHelp.com, these unusual eggs result when “ovulation occurs too rapidly or when one yolk somehow gets ‘lost’ and is joined by the next yolk.” The chance of even finding one is estimated at one in 1,000.
After cracking open 13 double yolks in a row, she asked her husband to film as she went through the rest of the box she purchased from an Asda supermarket, a British subsidiary of Wal-Mart.
As Della Reese once said in the 1996 Martin Lawrence classic of the same name, “It’s a thin line between love and hate.” Mackie the Boston Terrier clearly has some strong feeling about being tickled, but whether “Please sir, may I have another?” or “If you touch me again, I’m going to explode” is up for interpretation. Either way, it manifests itself with a series of delightful facial expressions the Mackie’s owner caught on camera:
American popular music has been around since before America even declared its independence. ‘Yankee Doodle,’ anyone? That classic was sung by Colonial American soldiers as early as The French and Indian War.
Since then, our country has established one of the richest musical traditions in the world. Many songs even deal with America itself, from ‘God Bless America’ to ‘God Bless the USA.’
Here’s a list of 10 to add to your Fourth of July playlist.
Apparently they do high school graduation a little differently in Taichung, Taiwan. Instead of just throwing on ‘Pomp and Circumstance’ and reading out a list of names, Ming-Dao High principal Albert T. Wang emerges onto a smoke-filled stage dressed in a full Iron Man costume and delivers a speech in not one, but two languages. His message: “Believe in yourself. You are also Iron Man.”
Counting sheep is a relaxing way to fall asleep, unless you’re Ci the border collie, in which case it would most likely lead to frightening night terrors. Ci may technically be a sheepdog, but he’s also afraid of sheep, a fear that dates all the way back to puppyhood. According to his 54-year-old owner Jane Lippington, the sheep herding instinct is definitely present in Ci, but instinct can only take him so far.
Given how popular Santa and his reindeer are, you might not expect a deer dashing through a church to be such a big to-do. But security camera footage of a deer decking the crowded halls of Colonial Baptist Church in Cary, North Carolina has become such a sensation, it’s already made international news. This story of forced entry and on-hoof pursuit has piqued a lot of interest. Fortunately, the deer eventually found his way to the exit and went on his merry way without causing too much harm.
