Here's How the Scooby Doo Crew Would've Dressed Through the 20th Century

by Katharine Trendacosta

In her delightfully titled “Scooby Doo, When Are You?” series, artist Julia Wytrazek has perfectly imagined what Velma, Daphne, Shaggy, and Fred would have worn from 1910 through to the ’90s. I might be biased, but I like Velma’s looks the best.

Chuck Palahniuk reads children's book 'Fight Club 4 Kids'

by Andrea James


"We'll call it the Horsing Around Club, and we'll just f***in' go to town on each other, just visceral disturbing sh*t, y'know?" The only thing that would be better than Chuck Palahniuk reading Fight Club 4 Kids would be if this book were real. (via) Read the rest

How To Go On A Fancy-Ass Cruise Without Going Broke

by Tavarish on Adequate Man, shared by Nicole Conlan to Jalopnik

We all have that friend who just loves to tell about how they love traveling. He’s the same friend that doesn’t realize that not everyone has a seven-figure trust fund and can afford to celebrate destination half-birthdays. Some people, like you and I, work for our money. Here’s a few tips on how to show up that cackling brat and get a sunburn without the burning through your bank account.

Seattle's tent cities

by Cory Doctorow

Saw this first-hand in Seattle. Not a great solution, but better than no shelter at all.

Seattle has America's fourth-largest homeless population and virtually everything homeless people do is illegal in Washington State, which has added 288 new offenses related to homelessness to its statute-books since 2000 -- amazingly, this did not convince those homeless people to stop being homeless.

What I Learned Riding 1000 Miles On A Motorcycle In 24 Hours

by Jerry Smith on lanesplitter, shared by Patrick George to Jalopnik

When I first heard about an under-the-radar bunch of road riders who rode 1000 miles in 24 hours or less just to earn membership in something called the Iron Butt Association, I thought, A thousand miles? In one day? That’s what airplanes are for. What’s wrong with these guys? So I decided to find out.

My Smartphone Gave Me a Painful Neurological Condition

by Adam Clark Estes on Gizmodo, shared by Ria Misra to io9

A few months ago I started getting headaches, and they were weird. If a bad hangover headache feels splitting, I’d describe these headaches as searing, as if someone had hit me over the head with a red hot rod of steel sending electric bolts of pain across my skull.

There's Going To Be A Brand New Tesla Roadster Soon

We talked about this a little bit in the original post covering Tesla’s announcement of LUDICROUS SPEED being introduced to the Model S. But buried in the details of that announcement was some more sizable news. In four years, there’s going to be a new Tesla Roadster.

The Rules Of Riding On The Back Of Another Man's Motorcycle

by Patrick George on lanesplitter, shared by Damon Lavrinc to Jalopnik

Besides chain smoking, or being a 1960s movie star, nothing makes you look sexier than riding a motorcycle. But when you’re a man it’s awfully hard to look cool on the back of another man’s bike, an unceremonious position referred to as “riding bitch.”

Attention Police Officers: Please Enforce The Left Lane Law

by Doug DeMuro

So I’m driving along the other day in the left lane of a major interstate highway, and I get up behind a Honda CR-V with “Conserve Wild Resources” license plates. These license plates have a picture of an owl on them. It was at this moment when I knew I would soon be passing on the right.

Facts You May Not Know About One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest

by Lisa Marcus

Image: United Artists

It's hard not to be moved by Milos Foreman's classic One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. The film can lead even the most hardened of filmgoers from laughter to tears. Yet it's not only the audience that is emotionally affected by the material. One cast member even had his sanity questioned by the end of the shoot.

The place in which the actors lived during production didn't help the situation. In fact, all of the actors who played patients in the film lived at the Oregon State Hospital psychiatric ward during the shoot. The men brought personal effects to their sleeping spaces, spent their days inside the ward and regularly interacted with the psychiatric patients there. That's more than a flyover — it's moving right in. 

Read more interesting facts about One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest here.

Tabby EVO – the $4000 open source electric car you can build yourself in an hour

by Nigel


Do you want to know what’s keeping car industry execs awake at night right now? It’s not oil prices, it’s the convergence of open source and 3D printing technologies. Sure, right now the whole idea of DIY cars is a pipe dream, but look forward a decade or so and you can easily see a situation where car production goes completely local.

The new Tabby EVO is a prime example of how things could develop in [...]
