'Fifty Shades of MODOK' is the parody we didn't know we wanted
LMAO. "Described as “A young woman’s erotic awakening at the proportionally tiny hands of a megalomaniacal supervillain, as told to @kitblonde,” the new blog is pretty much as advertised, with Anastasia Steele encountering not Christian Grey, the young business magnate with a taste for BDSM, but instead MODOK, the classic Marvel villain with an enormous head and matching ego, and apparent volume-control issues." - rønin from Bookmarklet

"To give your lover the thrill of a lifetime, head over to DQ's website, where they're selling the spoon for $4.99 (plus shipping!) To really underline the thoughtfulness of this gift, each spoon comes "lovingly encased in beautiful red velvet fabric...resting on a white, satiny pillow" inside a "keepsake jewelry box." They won't know it's not an expensive necklace until the very last second! Score!" - rønin from Bookmarklet

This sea slug steals plant genes to live like a leaf - The Washington Post - http://www.washingtonpost.com/news...
This sea slug steals plant genes to live like a leaf - The Washington Post
"The brilliant green sea slug Elysia chloroctica doesn't just look like the leaf of a plant: It functions like one, too. When it's supper time, the slug uses chloroplasts taken from local algae to photosynthesize for itself. That's not news: Scientists have known about the chloroplast theft since the 1970s. But it turns out that the slug takes more than just the sunlight-processing chloroplasts. It also steals the algae genes it needs to maintain those food-factories long after the crime is committed." - rønin from Bookmarklet

Is the Anti-Vaccination Movement Spreading to Pet Owners? -- NYMag - http://nymag.com/daily...
Is the Anti-Vaccination Movement Spreading to Pet Owners? -- NYMag
"Brennen McKenzie, a veterinarian blogger and past president of the Evidence-Based Veterinary Medicine Association, says that he has seen an uptick in pet owners seeking to skip vaccinations for their pets against distemper and other ailments, such as parvovirus, a potentially lethal disease in dogs that can cause symptoms such as vomiting and lethargy. McKenzie says that he is also aware of cat owners who have become wary of vaccines. “I would say, from a subjective personal point of view, that often issues in veterinary medicine spill over from human medicine, and over the last 10 or 15 years there has been an increase in mostly unfounded concerns about vaccine safety for people — and that, I think, has raised people’s awareness and level of concern about vaccinations for their pets,” he explains." - rønin from Bookmarklet

Australia’s Secret Weapon to Kill Millions of Feral Cats and Save Endangered Marsupials - Yahoo News - http://news.yahoo.com/austral...
"At least 15 million feral felines wander the continent, chomping down on up to 75 million native Aussie animals every day. The cats have been called the biggest threat facing Australia’s wildlife and have already been linked to as many as 30 extinctions. Previous attempts to trap and kill cats haven’t been very effective, but now a new solution is on the horizon. It’s called Eradicat—a combination of kangaroo mince, chicken fat, and a deadly poison called 1080, which has proven successful in other attempts to remove invasive species such as rats and mice. The Western Australian Department of Parks and Wildlife spent the past decade developing Eradicat to make it appeal to finicky feline palates. Under trial conditions, it managed to kill between 70 percent and 80 percent of the cats that consumed it. Representatives for the parks department did not return requests for comment. The 1080 poison, also known as sodium fluoroacetate, is being hailed as a good solution for the state of Western Australia because it is made from plants that grow in the region." - rønin from Bookmarklet

Fascinating. "The thing about the blood that everyone notices first: It's blue, baby blue. The marvelous thing about horseshoe crab blood, though, isn't the color. It's a chemical found only in the amoebocytes of its blood cells that can detect mere traces of bacterial presence and trap them in inescapable clots." - rønin from Bookmarklet

Randy Quaid And Evi Quaid Filmed This Bizarre Video With Simuated Sex
What in the... "Things have taken an interesting turn in the saga of Randy Quaid and wife Evi. The couple are currently suing John Kerry over a United States passport issue which actually stems from the fact that they are fugitives from justice. However, the subject of the above video which has surfaced on YouTube under the account “E Quaid” is not John Kerry; but rather Village Roadshow Pictures CEO Bruce Berman, Warner Brothers Entertainment, the New York Post, and Rupert Murdoch." - rønin from Bookmarklet

Exclusive - The FAA: regulating business on the moon - Yahoo News
"The United States government has taken a new, though preliminary, step to encourage commercial development of the moon. According to documents obtained by Reuters, U.S. companies can stake claims to lunar territory through an existing licensing process for space launches. The Federal Aviation Administration, in a previously undisclosed late-December letter to Bigelow Aerospace, said the agency intends to “leverage the FAA’s existing launch licensing authority to encourage private sector investments in space systems by ensuring that commercial activities can be conducted on a non-interference basis.”" - rønin from Bookmarklet

Strangers raise $60,000 to buy Detroit man who walks to work 21 miles a day a car - Yahoo News - http://news.yahoo.com/james-r...
"The story of a Detroit man who has been walking 21 miles a day to get to and from work for over a decade inspired a Michigan college student to launch an online campaign to buy him a car. Thanks to the generosity of strangers, the campaign has raised more than $60,000 in a day. Since buses don't cover the entire 23-mile route, 56-year-old James Robertson spends nearly all of his free time during the week commuting to his $10.55 an hour factory job in Rochester Hills. According to the Detroit Free Press, which published a front-page story about him Sunday, Robertson begins his trek at 8 a.m. to catch buses that take him to a Troy, Mich., mall before he walks 7 miles to Schain Mold & Engineering, where he begins his 2 p.m. to 10 p.m. shift. And according to his boss, Robertson has a perfect attendance record." - rønin from Bookmarklet

Cute Camera Alert: The New Polaroid Cube Arrives at B&H | explora
"Polaroid goes for cute and comes up cubed with its unique new action camera, now in stock at B&H. The Cube Mini Lifestyle Action Camera is a magnetized 35mm cube (that's 1.4" to we imperial folk) that features a wide 124-degree FOV lens, records Full HD 1080p video, and is built into a splash- and shock-resistant body. In these respects, it’s a pretty standard action camera. What sets it apart is its novel mounting concept. Being magnetic—and cube-shaped—you can attach it directly to flat surfaces that are made of ferrous metals, for example, on top of a putter (A driver? Not so much). Thanks to perfect symmetry, you can even lock multiple cameras together, forming an aggregated block of cameras. Why? Perhaps you’d like to stitch together a single, high-resolution image, or to have different cameras covering different angles." - rønin from Bookmarklet

This is what the world looks like if you scale countries by population - Vox - http://www.vox.com/2015...
"One neat thing about this one is that unlike with some cartograms, the basic shapes of the countries are very recognizable. Such low-population, large-area Anglophone nations as Canada and Australia nearly vanish from the map, though, while the nations of the Indian subcontinent swell enormously. Russia also shrinks from being a giant of land mass to only a mid-sized country as judged by population. You can also see that Nigeria really dominates the West African landscape in terms of actual population in a way that conventional area maps don't reflect." - rønin from Bookmarklet

Taiwanese woman blows up toilet trying to kill cockroach | Metro News
"When a young female employee at a clean-up firm in Taiwan was called to an office and stumbled upon a cockroach, she didn’t hesitate to act. First, she squashed the bug with a swift thwack of her shoe. Next, she wrapped the cockroach in tissue paper and crushed it. Then she set it on fire." - Jessie from Bookmarklet
"Just to make sure it was gone for good, she then tossed the cockroach into the toilet – forgetting that she’d just cleaned it. The result of the flaming cockroach and the cocktail of detergents in the toilet bowl was an extremely potent homemade explosive, which promptly went off a bang – blowing the toilet apart and stunning an office full of employees next outside." - Jessie

Video shows Seattle police officer arresting an elderly black man carrying a golf club - The Washington Post - http://www.washingtonpost.com/news...
"William Wingate had been standing on a busy Seattle street corner in July and leaning on a golf club he uses as a cane. That’s when a police cruiser pulled up, stopped, and the officer inside yelled that he “put that down.” The resulting exchange — in which the white officer claims Wingate, an elderly black man, swung the club at her after she asked him to “shut it down” before she arrested him – was all captured on the cruiser’s dashboard camera, the footage of which Seattle Police released this week as it apologized for the incident." - rønin from Bookmarklet

Here’s what moviegoers in Baghdad think of ‘American Sniper’ | GlobalPost
"Mohammed, who lived through the events in Baghdad the film depicts, admits that scenes where women and children were killed were hard for him to watch. But all in all he liked the movie. “I love watching war movies because especially now they give me the strength to face ISIS,” he said, using one of the acronyms for the Islamic State. When asked if he thought the movie was racist or anti-Arab — a charge made by some critics in the West — he replied, “No, why? The sniper was killing terrorists, the only thing that bothered me was when he said he didn’t know anything about the Quran!”" - rønin from Bookmarklet
"But not all Iraqis were cheering on "Chief" Kyle’s kills. Wael, a government ministry employee in his thirties, says the film was too violent. He’s happy it’s no longer being shown in some Baghdad theaters. “To some extent, I considered it against all Muslims,” he said. He also referred to the opening scene in Fallujah where a woman and child are killed. “The sniper, he has a chance to... more... - rønin
"“There is no American films [about Iraq] — and I saw a lot of them — that have given justice to the Iraqi people and the events that happened in Iraq,” he said. “I sort of understand why not, because when an American filmmaker and an American company make a film they think about it from the American point of view, they don’t care about Iraq, they care about themselves.” “That’s why we Iraqi filmmakers have to make films about Iraqi people,” he added." - rønin
