Well, it's nice and warm in the womb, so you'd forgive the baby if it yawns. Using 4D ultrasound, scientists have captured the fetal yawn and suggested that it may be related to brain development:

When a man and a woman love each other very, very much, they may just get married and if they also happen to love video games, they might have some video game influences at their wedding.
While Jane & Neil had a lot of video game aspects at their wedding, including video game table markers and stationary, the best touch is certainly this great Mario wedding cake.

Kittens love Abraham Lincoln - that is a known fact. So it's no wonder this three-week-old kitten ended up inside a statue of Lincoln at the President's Hall of Fame in Clermont, Florida. What is surprising is that the kitten was trapped there for three days, according to Daniel Davis of the Humane Society.
Eventually the fire department was able to rescue the little kitten by drilling a hole in the statue. The curator of the museum and maker of the statue, John Zweifel, will adopt the kitten. He has decided to call him Abe.

Chewie is wearing a dress, but I'd advise against laughing at him. It's not wise to upset a Wookiee.
Stefano Gentile painted this image of Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa. Check out her website, which is filled with good geeky art, such as Wolverine as the Big Bad Wolf in Little Red Riding Hood.

Talk about creating a sticky situation! Artist Danny Scheible creates colorful works of art with a very unusual medium- masking tape.
He calls his works Tapigami, and while the medium becomes obvious when you look at them up close, from far away it's hard to tell that his over 100,000 works are made out of tape.

DeviantART member datazoid, otherwise known as Russel Gawthorpe, created this collection of science action figures photographically. They are based on Star Trek action figures with details added digitally. Too bad they aren't available to buy! Datazoid admits there are many other scientists who deserve to be included. He limited them to 20th-century non-medical figures to keep the number manageable.

The Sealander is an ingenious design. It's a comfortable if compact camping trailer. But it's also a boat that can be maneuvered with a small electric outboard motor. Options include a heater, a sink and a refrigerator. You can watch a video of it in motion at the link.

You've heard how drunken people survive horrific accidents that should've killed them. But it's not just folk belief - scientists revealed that the higher the blood-alcohol level, the higher the chance of survival after a serious injury:
The conventional wisdom is that drunk people are more limp and relaxed during the accident, but Friedman's results showed that's not the case. Eli MacKinnon of LiveScience has the explanation: Link

Street artist Viktor Briestensky wanted to express that Vancouver's Glueph Park is a great place for dudes to just chill out and relax. So he discreetly renamed it with a sign that looks just like an official one:
The city's parks department has since removed it.

More than a hundred years after Germany's "last wolf" was shot and killed by hunters, naturalists in Berlin have reasons to rejoice: they have sighted a pack of wild wolves and cubs just outside Berlin.

Billboards are there to sell you things, but artist Stephen Glassman has another purpose in mind: art. He's aiming to turn billboards in Los Angeles into giant planters filled with bamboo. But first, he has to figure out how to water the thing:

Combining two of my favorite TV shows ever, Seinfield and Game of Thrones, would seem like a good idea. Well, no actually, it wouldn't. As much as I like Seinfield, I sort of hate the brand of Sitcom television it created. That being said I loved the video, they nailed it with the laugh track and everything. It's funny how different these scenes feel just because of the addition of the laugh track.

Redditor slamhead's wife is 34 weeks pregnant and undergoing chemotherapy for stage 2 breast cancer.

According to Wired, the secret to success in the field of programming is facial hair. Notable exceptions include women, of course, and Mark Zuckerberg. Of course, it may also be because those who are the best at what they do can get away with wearing their hair any way they like in the workplace. IT workers fall into different facial hair categories, some of which are shown here. There are twenty types of beards and/or mustaches illustrated in all, so if your profession is not represented here, you can see the rest at Wired. Link

Clowns are terrifying, with their big ol' floppy feet and painted faces. They aren't like us, and we hate them for wearing funny clothes and acting so silly all the time.
Topless Robot presents seven of geek-dom's scariest clowns, from the Clown Prince of Crime to Killer Klowns from Outer Space. These aren't party clowns, these are clowns which should be avoided at all costs, or face the coconut creme flavored consequences...

There's always an expert who knows more than you do, and is very willing to sell you a book to let you know how wrong you are. For parents, this has gone on for hundreds of years, and produced some rather strange advice …at least strange to our ears. Playing with a baby will spoil him. Never hug or kiss your children. Don't feed a baby at night. You should start toilet training at two months. A short child is the mother's fault. And babies should start eating like adults as soon as possible.
Read a roundup of the most outlandish advice from "experts" at Slate. Link

Jello has rolled out limited edition holiday flavors for its instant pudding: candy cane and gingerbread. My first reaction: why not just eat candy canes and gingerbread? But then, I don't like instant pudding. However, I can see my kids clamoring to try these, especially the candy cane flavor. Laughing Squid shows you some recipes that come with the pudding. Link
