As I'm sure everyone knows, hermit crabs use discarded items for their own shells. Which has led to any number of amusing pictures over the years of crabs using things like coke cans as shells. Now someone is using a "3D printer" to create little works of art for the crabs to wear.

Quite frankly, I'm surprised no one thought of this before.

Finally, humans won't be the only species to benifit from fashion!


Any of those clothes they force on dogs or cats or whatever don't count as "benefits" at all.


And no, despite the fact that anyone could benefit from a good Rarity design, ponies don't count if they're fictional. :P

This is funny, although not necessarily ha-ha funny. It seems that back in July some joker made a video of his cousin walking around Phoenix with what appears to be (but isn't) a rocket-propelled grenade launcher. Dressed in sheets to look vaguely Arab. All of this to ostensibly find out how long it would take police to respond to a terrorist threat.

The police don't show up on the video, which he posted to youtube. Someone informed the Phoenix police about the video, who recently tracked the guy down and arrested him. I guess he has his answer: Approximately two months. :n/

Thank goodness for the PHR. Really, how could that organization exist and/or get funding being so specific?

From the title that should be in the "Non-amusing News Articles" thread...but after reading it, now I'm not so sure it belongs in either place.

Weaponised flapjack new scourge of UK schools

I imagine there's an identical story somewhere in the Onion archives.

For some reason I've always assumed that flapjacks were pancakes. I have no idea what those triangular things are.

Please. The article includes a 'three-point guide to flapjacks'.

One thing is that they're supposed to be soft, like fresh cookies. If the flapjacks in this school were hard enough to be forged into shurikens, I think that may be the issue. I remember my primary school serving armoured 'roast potatoes'. They had to be attacked with a sharp downward stab, and would either ping across the room or shatter to reveal a hollow interior. Much of the food served in schools at the time could not be eaten.

Those are fun. It's very similar to the bento food characters.
