Admittedly, he's not exactly cute, but as fat as snakes go, it's pretty much as close as you can get. That's because he has such awesomely freakishly huge eyes and an incredibly thin, long body -making him look like the supermodel of the reptile world.
Interestingly, this uniquely lanky creature was only recently discovered. You can learn more about the fascinating snake over at io9.

Gandalf is all sorts of excited about The Hobbit adaptation coming to the big screen, so he dusted off his bagpipe, pumped up his unicycle tire and took to the streets to spread the word.
Best video moment- the guy in pink chasing after Gandalf, seemingly about to start a fantastic quest of his own!

You might be wondering why we've posted an article about Christmas decorations on our Halloween blog, well here goes- the decorations on this list are so creepy that people should just use them as Halloween decorations instead.
Putting up creepy Christmas decorations is a festive way to ruin childhoods, it's no wonder kids start crying when they see Santa!

All I ask is a tall tree and a star to steer her by. In a transporter accident, Captain Kirk's chair became fused with redditor Wizard_Glick's Christmas tree topper. I can't think of anyone else I'd rather have in command of my Christmas tree.

Michael Jackson's chimpanzee Bubbles is now 29 years old, and lives in a shelter in Florida. Expenses are around $20,000 per ape, so Bubbles is contributing two of his abstract paintings to an exhibit called "Endangered" at Art Basel Miami Beach. You can have one for $1,500. There are quite a few other former show-biz apes at the Center for Great Apes.

During the winter, northern Sweden gets only a few hours of sunshine a day. So an energy company in the town of Umeå placed light panels in bus stops to help commuters combat seasonal effective disorder:

In a not-too-distant but disturbingly violent future, brain implants record everything you see, and holographic cops can check them to see what you've been doing. This low-budget Swedish short by Eric Ramberg and Jimmy Eriksson has the potential to become a feature film. -Thanks, Jimmy and Eric!

What we've got here is failure to lose weight. That was something that Rafael Valadão should have done before boring a hole through the wall of a prison in Ceres, Brazil. That or dig a bigger hole.

After many years of installing a natural Christmas tree in the main public square of Brussels, Belgium, the tree this year is artificial, abstract, and electronic.

That all-American food, peanut butter, began with the devastation of American cotton by the boll weevil and the cultivation of peanuts as an alternative cash crop. As America advanced in the world, so did peanut butter. Jon Krampner wrote Creamy and Crunchy, a history of peanut butter. In the New Yorker, Jon Michaud summarized and reviewed it. Here's how two of the three major brands developed:

The temperature where I am is about 65 degrees, which is odd for December. It's hard to get into the Christmas spirit amidst global warming, but there's always movies to put you in the mood. However, if you're looking for something without the sugary sweetness of Christmas family films, you might try movies that "revolve around cold, and snow, and hypothermia and madness." Five of them are detailed at Unreality. Pictured here is the “snow-nazi-zombie” movie Dead Snow. Link

At only $575 dollars this steampunk keyboard is just almost worth it. I mean it's a steampunk Buccaneer Mk2 keyboard. It has a leather embossed backing, wooden keys, a solid walnut frame with antique finish, intricate brasswork and all other kinds of steampunky goodness.

Deviantartist MaboroshiTira really likes Game Boys. So much so that she built a giant cardboard one, I don't really know for what purpose but it's still cool. No it doesn't work, you can't play Dragon Warrior 3 on it, but all the buttons are push-able and the on/off switch and volume dial both turn.

Jazz musician and composer Dave Brubeck died this morning due to heart failure. If you don't know the musician, you know his works, such as the classic "Take Five." Shown here is the song performed in Berlin in 1966, with Brubeck on the piano.

I checked the office twice, no one here is British so I can't confirm exactly how accurate this is. That being said, I am picturing all my favorite English movies and characters and it plays out pretty well. Like Simon Pegg from Shaun of the Dead or Stanley Kubrick from A Clockwork Orange or even Harry Potter from.. well you know. I don't know about you guys but I read this out loud (without thinking) and in my best British accent. My favorite line is probably "could we consider some other options."
Any English followers out there that can confirm this guide?

The only people who can spend Christmas with the Daleks are The Doctor and his companions. Anyone else is destined to be wiped off the planet, so I hope the guys singing this song either don't get their Christmas wish or become friends with a mad man in a box before the 25th.

Sometimes you buy Christmas presents out of obligation, like the annual name-drawing at your workplace, or some such event. What to get when you don't care to send the very best? Jill Harness came up with some fine suggestions, as long as you keep your tongue in your cheek. These gifts are all readily available, and will surely point out the recipient's faults in a public way. However, some of them might actually be useful to someone you love, but only if they request the product. Shown here is a set of garters for wannabe gangsters who want to strut around with low-slung pants, but can't keep their jeans in place. The rest are just as funny! Link

Even bunnies know that Thanksgiving feasts are supposed to feature turkey and this veggie-loaded holiday meal just wasn't up to snuff. In fact, this little guy even had a hard time swallowing his first meatless bite.
