Minecraft Animals

Digital artist Aditya Aryanto from Jakarta, Indonesia wondered what real animals would look like in the Minecraft universe, so he took several photos and transformed them into these bizarre blocky creatures. To be more specific, he scourd Unsplash and Pixabay for a few public domain images, loaded them into Photoshop, and used the curves filter to create the blocky look.

Buzz Aldrin Selfie

NASA's Gemini XII mission in 1966 was the 10th and final manned Gemini flight, and it was commanded by Gemini VII veteran James A. Lovell. It featured three periods of extravehicular activity (EVA) by rookie Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin, lasting a total of 5 hours and 30 minutes. Gemini XII marked a successful conclusion of the Gemini program, achieving the last of its goals by successfully demonstrating that astronauts can effectively work outside of spacecraft. This was instrumental in paving the way for the Apollo program to achieve its goal of landing a man on the Moon by the end of the 1960s.

Building Shaker

Let's face it, nobody likes noisy neighbors, especially ones who reside directly above you. Zhao from China decided to seek revenge by purchasing a "building shaker" gadget online. Believe it or not, he actually tried to politely speak with the family first, but to no avail. The $58 device produces strong vibrations, similar to someone drilling into the ground, with the higher-end models offering timers and smartphone compatibility. After leaving for a weekend and leaving the "Building Shaker" device turned on, the two parties mutually agreed to keep things quiet during certain hours of the day. Click here to view the first image in this week's art of trolling gallery. Continue reading for a viral video of an incredible Japanese Rube-Goldberg machine.

Funny Bar India

India's Supreme Court recently banned the sales and serving of liquor within 500-meters of national and state highways. This new ruling hit business owners hard, and many had to shut down their operations in just weeks. But one resourceful bar owner in Kerala, India devised an effective, yet low-tech, way of bypassing the law. The owner of Aishwarya Bar in North Paravoor, a suburb of Kochi, hired some workers and spent 3-days putting up a series of concrete blocks to turn the previously straight walkway into a maze that leads right up to the entrance. Now, the walking distance from the highway to his bar is approximately 520-meters, making it legal to sell liquor. Continue reading for more pictures and information.

Oddly Ironic

You would think a "Mall Maintenance Shop" with the slogan "we can fix anything," would have a working doorbell, but apparently, that's not the case. Thankfully, there's a window on the door just in case knocking doesn't get any attention either. That is just one of the many oddly ironic things that people on the internet have come across. Other examples include: a Domino's delivery scooter spill, "American Freedom" that is made in China, and lots more. Continue reading to see them all. Click here for a few bonus images.

USB Cable Fail

Thanks to this gadget, opening plastic clamshell packaging has never been easier. Unfortunately, not everyone has one of these tools handy, so the next best thing would be just a normal pair of scissors. Many would simply cut along the edges of the package, while some may have a temporary brain lapse and end up slicing the product itself into two, like this person with a USB cable. Other examples of people who have no idea include: locking your padlock keys onto itself, collecting bizarre "seashells", and more. Continue reading to see them all.

Funny Don't Care

Some people really just don't care what others think, and a perfect example would be this person who decided to play Solitaire on their Windows XP machine, despite having a line of customers waiting. Other examples include: lugging around a full-sized radio instead of a portable music player, drinking wine while working out, and more. Continue reading to see them all.

SwearJar ThinkGeek

For those who still have coin jars, the SwearJar might be just what you need to save more than just a few pennies here and there. The Simply put, its "Ratings Control Knob" up front lets users choose between a G to R rating for the profanity used, and as the rating is upped, the frequency of reminders are also increased.

570GT Feather Wrap

The McLaren 570GT might be the best everyday supercar currently available, but that doesn't mean absurd options, such as the "Feather Wrap," aren't available to potential buyers. McLaren Special Operations spends 300-hours hand-layering these feathers, and use approximately 10,000 on each vehicle. "Our engineers and designers have long been inspired by nature in our aim to create the lightest and most aerodynamic shapes on the road. We call this biomimicry. And it was on a beautiful day walking around our Woking campus that one of us looked up at the birds circling our lake, then picked up a feather from the ground and placed it on a car. That turned into a conversation with the craftsmen and women at MSO that led to the creation of the Feather Wrap," said Robin Crane, McLaren's Biomimicry Specialist.

Wile E. Coyote Runner Tunnel

Remember the old Road Runner & Wile E. Coyote cartoons, and how the latter always painted fake tunnels? Well, a graffiti artist in Brazil thought it'd be smart to do just that on a brick wall, and as you can see, a Fiat drove directly into it. Fortunately, city officials painted over that optical illusion the very next day to prevent future accidents from occurring. Continue reading for more design FAILS that haven't been Photoshopped.
