The Mandarin Oriental hotel in Las Vegas believes that some people are inclined towards certain cocktails based on their zodiac signs. That's why they've developed a whole cocktail menu based on the signs of their customers -like the lover's potion for Aquariuses and the werly cup for Geminis below.

What's left to be said about Tom Brady? He just won his record fifth Super Bowl while playing in his record seventh. Last Sunday, Tom Brady carried his New England Patriots to the greatest comeback victory in Super Bowl history. Down by 25 points in the third quarter (by a score of 28-3) of Super Bowl 51, Tom somehow still managed to lead his team to victory. The Pats won the first-ever overtime Super Bowl by a final score of 34-28.
4. He has guest-starred in both on The Simpsons and Family Guy. Okay, how cool is that? Tom did a guest spot on The Simpsons in 2005 episode "Homer and Ned's Hail Mary Pass," and as if that wasn't cool enough, he also did a Family Guy guest bit the next year in the 2006 episode "Patriot Games."
6. That stuff you see him drinking on the sidelines isn't water. During games you will often see the camera pan to Tom and you will see him taking swigs from his water bottle. Only that isn't water, Tom drinks coconut juice during games to keep himself hydrated.

12. He gave away the car he was awarded as MVP of the 2015 Super Bowl. Tom was named most valuable player in the 2015 Super Bowl when he and the Pats defeated the Seattle Seahawks. But Tom gave away the car he won to teammate Malcolm Butler, who made the game-winning interception.

17. He was president George W. Bush's guest at his 2004 State of the Union address, and got to sit next to former First Lady Barbara Bush.

Here's a bouquet that will never go limp! British artist Ann Carrington produced several works that are floral decorations made of cutlery and other metal kitchen utensils for a collection called Bouquets and Butterflies. They were the centerpiece of Carrington's 2016 exhibit at the Royal College of Art in London called Pop goes the Weasel! You can see them all, plus closeup of the details, in her gallery. -via Nag on the Lake

Conan ain't your grandma's fantasy hero, and his adventures are full of the kinds of things most polite people try not to discuss with their grandmas.
Just don't expect to see a pro gamer playthrough, because as Shirley says "I don't know meanings of things, I just play games!"
I wonder how Shirley would feel about this game if she knew it had an "endowment" slider during male character creation and genital physics? Heck, I don't know how I feel about that!!

The only photographic images of abolitionist and underground railroad operator Harriet Tubman that we are familiar with were taken in her old age, showing her as severe and tired. But now a new portrait has emerged- one that shows her in her prime. It was found in an album kept by Tubman's friend and fellow abolitionist Emily Howland. Biographer Dr. Kate Clifford Larson estimates that Tubman was between 43 and 46 years old in the photo, which was shortly after the Civili War. Tubman lived in Auburn, New York at the time.
"What's remarkable about this photograph is that she's so proud and dignified and beautiful. She looks so young," Larson said. "This is the vibrant young Tubman just coming off her work during the Civil War. She's building her life with her family in Auburn."
The photograph, along with the album, containing historic photographs of other abolitionists, will go up for auction in March. -via Atlas Obscura

The 2017 WindGames were held in Spain last weekend for competition in indoor skydiving. The winner of the freestyle category was 14-year-old Kyra Poh of Singapore, who was competing against adults for the first time. Here's her winning performance.
While the acrobatics were amazing, that ending was super-impressive. Poh also won the solo speed category, in which competitors must complete a series of specific moves in the fastest time possible. You can see her solo speed performance here. -via Metafilter

Back in the day both guys and girls enjoyed riding skateboards, but by the time vert and street skating became a pro sport the boys ruled the skate park.
There were always a few female skaters around, but in the 80s and 90s girls just didn't seem that in to the idea of skating on the streets, and therefore had less of a presence during those "Skate or Die" years.
But now female skaters are riding out in full force and forming crush-worthy crews to let the boys know they came to SK8 hard.

Whenever I hear the words ToeJam or Earl I can't help but think of that classic console video game series that made me want to hang out with aliens back in the day. That series had it all- random level designs, a funky soundtrack, strange looking yet adorable alien protagonists and tons of pop culture references that usually went over everybody's heads. But what made the game great was its two player co-op mode, since it brought friends together like never before...unless they fought over who got to be ToeJam!
Celebrate the good old days of console gaming with this Jammin! t-shirt by Retro Freak, it's a blast from the past that will have your fellow retro game fanatics calling for an encore!

Scientists study food because food is very important to all life. However, some of the experiments that have been done about food are strange, different, and something we certainly want to know about. For example, scientists who did the research would like us to know that toast doesn't always land butter-side down. Maybe it's just me- mine always lands butter-side down. John Green tells us about 24 food studies in the latest episode of he mental_floss List Show.

There have been comic book tv shows since the 1960s, but there's never been more than there are now. So which ones are worth watching? Depending on who you ask, all of them or none of them. And no one really agrees on which ones are the best. But if you're the debating type, you'll want to check out this list on Complex ranking 20 of the best comic book TV shows. Personally, I think Agent Carter and Luke Cage should be way higher on the list -but then, by next year there will probably 20 more shows that can be ranked on a list like this.
So check out the full list over at Complex and feel free to argue your favorite show's case here.

You can already buy packages of pre-cut salad or vegetables at your supermarket, but it might not be chopped the way you need it, and who knows how fresh it is? At Whole Foods in Manhattan, you can get yours custom-chopped by the new Produce Butcher, professional food cutter for fruits and vegetables. Then it will be done right, just the way you want it. But it's a bigger benefit than that to some folks.
And then there's the rest of us, who are just lazy and want our dinner prepared quickly. Read about the Produce Butcher at FoodBeast. -Thanks, John Farrier!

Many comic artists reveal a bit (or a whole lot) about themselves through their comics, and yet they often remain unseen.
Sometimes this is by design, because they're shy or they want their comic to speak for itself, but more often than not it's because we're too busy posting their comics to speak on the creator.
So let's change that, shall we?
The guy at the top of the post is Chris Grady, creator of Lunarbaboon, and he also looks a lot like his character, but the creator of Catana Comics, Catana Chetwynd, has a much smaller and more detailed head than her character.

A clowder of five cats in Thailand have to check out the new member of the family, a realistic plush cat taking a nap. They seem flummoxed by the newcomer, and I can't say I blame them.
And the more cats concentrate on studying something, the easier they are to startle. They didn't even stick around long enough to hear the new cat speak. -via Laughing Squid

Filmmakers like Steven Spielberg, J.J. Abrams and David Fincher have had pretty eclectic careers in Hollywood because they don't limit themselves to any one genre or style of filmmaking.
And even though Abrams and Spielberg are best known for their sci-fi projects they've both done a great job of writing and/or directing serious dramas too, like Regarding Henry and The Color Purple.
Illustrator Maria Suarez-Inclan creates colorful montages she calls "Hollywood Kits", representing the careers of these writers/directors, which kinda ends up looking like a bunch of stuff laid out on a flea market vendor's blanket.
The movies and TV shows represented in each piece are listed at the bottom but it's still hard to figure out where all the symbols belong, and Martin Scorsese's is definitely the hardest.

A new restaurant in the Philippines is completely LEGO-themed, down to the hamburgers they sell. Brick Burger in the Pasig City area of Manila sells hamburgers with buns shaped like LEGO bricks, that come in several bright colors! The entire interior of Brick Burger is decorated with LEGO toys, constructions, fixtures, and even walls covered with the familiar LEGO studs. Diners can even play with LEGO sets while they wait for their orders. Get a pictorial tour of Brick Burger at TVOM.
