THIS EXISTS: For The Woodworking Enthusiast, Build Your Own Casket!

I don’t know exactly what category of pop culture this falls under, but SHEESH. There’s a point when being fiscally responsible doesn’t really matter anymore. When you’re DEAD, for example. That said, for those who love workworking, or just love to plan ahead, here’s where you can buy the plans to make your very own casket! Check out the comments on the product page!

I don’t know exactly what category of pop culture this falls under, but SHEESH. There’s a point when being fiscally responsible doesn’t really matter anymore. When you’re DEAD, for example. That said, for those who love workworking, or just love to plan ahead, here’s where you can buy the plans to make your very own casket!

Mind you, the plans are only $14.99…but just like a model home, it’s when you add all the “bells and whistles” like, oh, a frame, or hinges and lid catches, (to keep it from popping open during the service) where the price adds up. The ad says it’s for ‘intermediate to advanced’ woodworkers, but honestly, if you’re not advanced, I would probably NOT go down this road… this is not something you wanna get wrong.

I know death is sad all around, but let’s just appreciate the twisted and strange nature of all this…  especially because the company that sells the casket plans has a comments page, and each customer gives it rave reviews, as well as some photos of their work. Among the notable quotes (followed by my reaction in paranthesis):

“If I made another one I would make it 2-3 inches wider.” (Well THAT says something about the state of obesity in America.)

“I bought 10 yards of material to line it and could have used a couple more but the store was out.” (Dont’ worry – no one will ever know!)

“I made this from a Western Red Cedar tree from the back yard of the friend who will be using it in a few months.” (In a few months?!? That’s alarming! This is probably the result of a sad story, but if I see this guy on 48 Hours Mystery anytime soon, I know why.)

>Thanks to Amanda C., and her equally sick sister.

NATURE, CAUGHT ON TAPE: Bug Battle Ends With Surprise Plot Twist.

Someone thought this bug battle was interesting enough having these two beasts go at it. They certainly didn’t see what happened at the end coming.

Strong language warning: the originator of the video edited some @#$*&# at the end.

That’s right. A lizard got right in there for the win!

CRAZY OR COOL? Finally The Tiresome Chore Of Laundry Is Combined With The Tiresome Chore Of Exercise.

Bike Washing MachineThat is, if students at the Dalian Nationalities University in China have anything to do about it. They’ve designed a bike washing machine that will wash your clothes while you pedal. From the looks of it, about two or three items. I guess if you have one outfit you really want to wear tomorrow, you’re in luck!

The invention, a “Bike Washing Machine” or ‘BiWa” will require you to actually bike for more than five minutes, so there’s some extra incentive to burn the calories. Which is good? That’s good, right?

The pedaling motion causes the drum of the washing machine to rotate, and blah blah you get the idea.

 

Until this thing gets mass produced, I’ll start working on my laundry bike playlist. Let’s see… ‘Carwash,’ ‘Dirty Laundry,’ ‘Come Clean…’

BACON GONE VIRAL: See How The “Bacon Weave” Will Transform Your Sandwich.

I don’t need a major reason. The reason is bacon. In any case, Food And Wine just posted a ridiculously easy instructional video for the “Bacon Weave.” It is apparently a thing, and I had no idea. It’s the key to getting a bit of bacon in every bite of your BLT (or, really anything, because, why wouldn’t you?)
