If You Drive Over These Rumble Strips On The Highway, Something Awesome Happens

If You Drive Over These Rumble Strips On The Highway, Something Awesome Happens

Normally, when you drift to the curb of a highway, it’s bad news. You’re jolted back into the lane by the terrible vibrations and noise of the rumble strips. But just west of a small town in New Mexico, there’s a road that everyone looks forward to for just that same reason. While there are some pretty spectacular views, the grooves in the road are what people travel to it for. Spaced just the right amount apart, the rumble strips produce a song when you drive over them at the exact right speed.

Meet The Bomb Pizza (It's Possibly The Coolest Pizza In Existence)

Meet The Bomb Pizza (It’s Possibly The Coolest Pizza In Existence)

Yes, this food is on fire. And it looks awesome. YouTube This is called The Bomb Pizza and it’s from The Place restaurant in Seoul. It might look just like a ball of dough that was caught on fire, but it’s actually a shell surrounding typical pizza toppings. After it’s lit on fire, the heat cooks the pizza toppings and melts the cheeses. You can eat it plain, or you can use any of the dipping sauces The Place provides. It might be worth traveling around the world just to eat this pizza. LOOK AT IT. Watch them serve up The Bomb…it’s totally hypnotizing. This one is red because it’s filled with gorgonzola and cranberries (and it’s perfect). (via BuzzFeed) Now, I’m not saying Americans couldn’t think of an awesome pizza creation like this, but it’s no surprise that The Bomb is being served up in Korea!

He Picked Every Topping Possible And Built The Biggest McDonald's Burger...Ever

He Picked Every Topping Possible And Built The Biggest McDonald’s Burger…Ever

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DTAT_ATF’); }); Someone actually did it…and he’s a hero for it. Moshe Tamssot, a Chicago resident, was poking around on McDonald’s latest advancement in fast food technology — the ‘Create Your Taste’ kiosk — when he discovered he could add a whooping 10 pieces of bacon to his hamburger! Wanting to know just how far he could take the build-a-burger kiosk, he decided to add 10 pieces of every topping available to his “Big Max” burger. But the biggest surprise came when the cashier first tried to ring up the order and the total read $890.80. The confused server decided to check with a manager before realizing that due to a pricing bug, the system had added hundreds of dollars for the different types of cheeses he’d selected. The final total for the Big Max? Just $24.89, which could be the deal of the century when you consider […]

Muhammad Ali Was More Than Just A Boxer...He Was A Hero, Too

Muhammad Ali Was More Than Just A Boxer…He Was A Hero, Too

There are many wonderful — nay, great things we could say about the late Muhammad Ali. He was a boxer, a poet, a champion for those with Parkinson’s…but to many, he was also a hero. He famously spoke out against racism saying, “Hating people because of their color is wrong and it doesn’t matter which color does the hating, it’s just plain wrong.” Wikimedia Commons The boxer, nicknamed The Greatest, also famously refused to go to war in Vietnam. Citing religious reasons for not wanting to fight — Ali had converted to Islam when he was just 22 — the man spoke out saying, “Why should they ask me to put on a uniform and go 10,000 miles from home and drop bombs and bullets on [Vietnamese] people while [African Americans] in Louisville are treated like dogs.” Wikimedia Commons But what many people don’t realize is how much of an […]

Cheesy Mashed Potato Spring Rolls Are The Best Snack Ever

Cheesy Mashed Potato Spring Rolls Are The Best Snack Ever

If I had to choose a favorite side, anything with potatoes would probably be it. But if you forced me to narrow it down further, it’d be a tie between french fries and mashed potatoes.

Next Time Your Friend Tries To Be A Wine Snob, Tell Them About These Experiments

I’ll never forget the day when I sat down to watch a documentary and was verbally assaulted with this statement: “This wine has notes of tennis ball and garden hose.” That is (a paraphrased version of) an actual sentence uttered by an insufferable snob from a film called “Somm.” I know that everyone has their thing, but watching grown-ass adults talking about the base notes in wine in comparison to garden tools for hours on end felt like a form of punishment. googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCBP_ATF’); }); And since I’m a glutton for the stuff, I tuned in until the end.

This Footage Of A Soviet Grocery Store Right Before The Fall Will Make You Hungry

This Footage Of A Soviet Grocery Store Right Before The Fall Will Make You Hungry

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DTBT_ATF’); }); It’s no secret that life in the Soviet Union was tough. Food shortages and an oppressive regime made for uneasy conditions, to say the least. However, toward the end of the Soviet Union’s reign, there was a slight thawing in relations with the West. That thawing (some might argue) led directly to the downfall of the entire Soviet way of life. While there are some things about the system that are truly missed by those who grew up under it, many facets of it are better off forgotten. Like the average Soviet grocery store, for example. It’s hard to imagine a poorly stocked grocery store with more empty shelves than cans of food, but that’s what people used to live with. Luckily for us, there is some old footage of these shops floating around out there that was shot just before the fall of the Soviet […]

This Couple Built The Most Incredible Home…And It’s Floating

At some point, we’ve all had that fantasy of abandoning society and living off the grid. I’ve always dreamed of having my own personal island, but I’ve never entertained the idea that it could actually be done. I couldn’t be more wrong, though.

Although they’re not totally off the grid, their lifestyle is different than what we’re used to. In this picture, it looks like they live […]

Does Your College Kid Love Instant Ramen? You Should Show Them This

Does Your College Kid Love Instant Ramen? You Should Show Them This

When you’re in a pinch and need a quick and easy dinner option, you might turn to instant noodles like ramen. While these inexpensive noodles have become a staple in college cuisine, they’re not exactly something that many would deem a healthy meal. Just like any other highly processed food, they can be full of salt and other ingredients that have been linked to various medical problems and conditions. I was never the biggest fan of ramen noodles during my time at college, and now that I’ve read about the heath risks that they carry with them, I definitely won’t be putting them in my shopping cart anytime soon. Ramen noodles do not digest like most foods. In the video below, you can see the noodles sitting in the stomach hours after being consumed. This can spell trouble for the digestive system, which is forced to work overtime to try […]

Final chapter? The slow death of Islamabad’s secondhand bookshops

Since the 1970s, old bookshops have lent character to Pakistans capital. But as the citys economy surges, how long can they survive? Nadeem Ahmad Siddiqui is holding court with a group of friends and regulars at his Islamabad bookshop, Jumbo. The jovial chatter and tea drinking is broken up every so often by a customer seeking Siddiquis help. One child is gently admonished to find something more stimulating to read, while a question about medical textbooks from a mother and daughter soon turns into an animated discussion about India-Pakistan relations. Tucked away in the corner of a busy commercial sector, unassuming Jumbo Books has iconic status among Islamabads old bookshops, as secondhand book stores are known here. Once the nondescript doorway is located among the swanky new restaurants and fashion boutiques of Pakistans capital, the visitor takes a staircase down to a concrete basement.

Every Day, School Children In Japan Both Work During -- And Enjoy -- Lunchtime

Every Day, School Children In Japan Both Work During — And Enjoy — Lunchtime

Lunch period in Japan is nothing like what you’re used to. There’s no cafeteria with kids sitting in cliques, nor are there questionable food choices served on Styrofoam trays. Instead, each student is presented with the opportunity to approach lunch as a learning experience. This means that they set their own tables, serve their fellow students, learn how to run a kitchen, and discover how their food made it to the table. After you see this, you’ll wonder why schools in the U.S. don’t approach school lunches this way. Lunch period in Japan certainly isn’t all about eating. It’s all about being considerate and taking stock in what you eat, and it doesn’t get better than that! Read more: http://www.viralnova.com/japanese-lunch/

As much as I love the taste of a nice slice of onion on my burger, I can’t get over the whole crying thing. I used to work in a grocery store where part of my job was to slice up onions for salads and other freshly made entrees, and let me tell you it was the absolute worst. Over the years, I’ve always thought that the type of onion was responsible for my emotionless tears, but as it turns out, that simply isn’t the case.

What Thomas Edison Did To Show The World The Dangers Of Electricity Is Insane

What Thomas Edison Did To Show The World The Dangers Of Electricity Is Insane

Around the turn of the century, the United States was locked in an ideological battle over the future of the nation’s power grid. The two sides dealt with direct currents and alternating currents. While both forms of power deliver electricity, they do so differently. Thomas Edison was a firm believer in the direct current, while George Westinghouse and Nicola Tesla were proponents of using the alternating current. As a way to discredit his competitors, Edison held several public events during which he attempted to show the supposed dangers of using an alternating current. He did this by electrocuting and killing a number of animals with the technology. The biggest and most controversial of these events was held on Coney Island in New York City back in 1903. At this event, Edison electrocuted and killed a 36-year-old circus elephant by the name of Topsy. Cameras were rolling so that future generations […]

46 Years Ago, The National Guard Shot And Killed 4 Kent State Students

46 Years Ago, The National Guard Shot And Killed 4 Kent State Students

On May 4, 1970, the realities of the Vietnam War reached Kent State University in Kent, Ohio. Students were protesting the war as a result of President Nixon’s declaration of the United States’ intention to attack Viet Cong. More than 1,000 protestors and demonstrators were at the university campus. According to Kent State, the protests started peacefully. However, once the young protestors clashed with the police, violence ensued. Getty Images / Universal History Archive / Contributor The National Guard was called in on May 2. Although the university attempted to ban it, a large rally was held on May 4 at noon. Approximately 3,000 people attended the demonstration and filled the commons area. The National Guard dispatched about 100 armed guardsmen. When the demonstrators were ordered to disperse, they began throwing rocks at the National Guard. The protestors moved toward Blanket Hill.

This Great-Grandmother Makes The Meals Her Family Survived On During The Depression

One of my biggest regrets is not taking advantage of the stories my 90-year-old grandmother could have shared with me while she was alive. Like Clara Cannucciari, who has also now passed on, my grandmother lived through the Great Depression and likely could have shared similar recipes with me if I’d given her the chance. Thankfully, Clara’s family had the good sense to capture her warmth, stories, and recipes before it was too late. Each of the delightful videos showcases a meal Clara and her family survived on during one of the bleakest eras in U.S. history. Even while pushing a century on this planet, Clara’s sweet personality shines through the camera while she peels potatoes, sautés onions, and serves up the dishes they were able to piece together on their meager funds.

21 Awesome Ways To Use Chalkboard Paint Around Your Home…They’re So Creative!

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DTAT_ATF’); }); I’ve always loved chalkboards — minus that horrible screeching sound that happens when they’re raked with fingernails, of course.

Speaking of possibilities, I had no clue the number of creative things you could do with chalkboard paint until just recently.
