A lot of food in developed nations is simply wasted: cooked, but never eaten. Freeganism, a culinary lifestyle, has developed around it. Freegans dine on discarded food. Now television producers in Austria have developed a cooking show around that idea:
Have you ever tried freeganism? What was your experience like?

Sure Wolverine's claws look badass, but have you ever wondered if he could be charged with carrying a concealed weapon or other charges related to his claws? As it turns out, he'd be ok as long as he didn't get in any unjustified fights -which might be a problem for Logan. That's because according to Vista defense lawyer Peter Liss, the fact that his claws are actually a bodily mutation, not an equipped weapon means he couldn't be accused of carrying a weapon.
Of course, I still don't think they'd let him on a plane like that, so it's fortunate that the X Men have their own jet.

Warning: you will burn yourself if you make these because you will be unable to resist stuffing them in your mouth as soon as they come out of the oven. Brandi Bidot folded Nutella into canned biscuit dough and then frosted the rolls with a mixture of cream cheese, powdered sugar and vanilla extract.

What's better than baking cute little dinosaur cookies? Baking the separate parts of the dinosaur so that you can connect the pieces and build an edible 3D dinosaur! Here are the details from Suck UK:
Of course, depending on how creative you are and how good you are at cooking, there's so much more you can do with these 3D dino treats than just bake the cookies and put them together.

Lake Abraham is a man-made lake on the North Saskatchewan River in western Alberta, Canada. Lake Abraham was created in 1972 and named after Silas Abraham, a nineteenth century resident of the Saskatchewan River valley.
The blue lake gets it's color from the rock flour, fine-grained particles of rock, as many glacier lakes do. More interestingly though, the lake gets it's bubbles from rising methane that forms in pockets as the lake freezes over for winter. It is a beautiful phenomenon to see.
You can check out a full gallery of Lake Abraham here.

I wish I had a TARDIS play tent when I was a kid! However, since this tent is 61" tall and I'm a fairly short adult, I could still get one today and be just as satisfied now as I would have been then. Even better, This canvas tent folds open to reveal the 11th Doctor's control room.

You would think things like blind people and Instagram would go together like eggs and ketchup. They shouldn't, it's just wrong- right? Here to prove you wrong is one of the most entertaining blind people around, Tommy Edison XP. Edison was born blind and has started a Youtube channel so that he can inform the masses of what the world is like through the mind of a blind person.
On his channel he talks about everything from describing colors to blind people, to the best things about being blind. My favorite line from Best Things About Being Blind?

The dress by fashiontech designer Anouk Wipprecht and engineer Daniel Schatzmar is creepy enough even without the ultra artful video presentation. From the YouTube description:

In 2009, artist Jean-Michel Rubio designed a 6 feet tall giraffe made out of 3000 paperbacks and had it installed on the Canebière in Marseille, France. In 2010, the giraffe was used as a terminal book exchange. After surviving the winter in 2010, however, the giraffe made of books was burned down to ashes by vandals.
Still, it's awesome this existed. I wonder how long it would have survived if not for the vandalism.

Frosty the Snowman was a jolly happy soul--and delicious! For each snowman pretzel, Beth Klosterboer joined two pretzel rings together with CandiQuick and covered the joint with a fruit roll-up scarf. She then filled the interior with more CandiQuick and added features with chocolate chips, a candy nose and a food coloring marker.

Last week it was Oomps-Loompas; this week Smurfs. Four men painted blue and dressed as Smurfs entered a store in Pascoe Vale, a suburb of Melbourne, Australia.
Police appealed to the public and asked the four men to come forward. Three unidentified 19-year-men and one 18-year-old turned themselves in, and will be charged with "assault-related offences." Link -via Arbroath

Charles has a problem, Charles thinks he is a lion. Or rather other people seem to think he is a lion.
In Norfolk, Virginia people panicked when Charles got loose, they called the police saying a lion was running around town. A SWAT team was even called, and told to use deadly force if necessary. Little did they know Charles is really a fun-loving 4 year old labra-doodle with a funky haircut. Don't fret though, Charles was returned to his owner without incident. Why the haircut? Because Charles is the unofficial mascot for Old Dominion University, his owner calls his breed a "labra-lion."

You can even see the flames! See a collection of his best at NBC's PhotoBlog. Link -via Digg

Aspiring photojournalist Todd Robertson took this picture during a KKK rally in Gainesville, Georgia, on September 5th, 1992. It came close to never being published.
Back at the newspaper office, Robertson was told his photos weren’t worth developing because the staff photographer had come back with plenty of good images from the rally. A photograph of a Klan leader was selected to be the primary shot for the Local section cover.
The AP picked up the photo and it spread at least as far as Europe. It later won an Associated Press Award. Read the story of the day the photograph was taken, how it has been used since that day, and its resurgence on the internet. Link -via the Presurfer

There is nothing wrong with your computer. Do not attempt to adjust the picture. Robert Lazzarini, an artist in New York City, is controlling transmission.
The images in the above gallery are not distorted. Instead, Lazzarini created three-dimensional objects that look like they've been warped. You can view more at the link.
