• While the Confederate flag continues to be the subject of bans across North America, one Louisiana man who supports “heritage, not hate” has a bone to pick with Walmart.  

    Chuck Netzhammer requested his local Walmart decorate a cake for him in the shape of the Confederate flag and was outraged when he was refused, reports The Daily Caller

    Netzhammer decided to try another controversial symbol, the ISIS battle flag, and was shocked when his cake came back, in full piped-icing glory. In an uploaded YouTube video seen more than 500,000 times since last Friday, Netzhammer shows the cake, along with what he originally wanted – the Confederate flag with the slogan “History not hate.”

    ““WTF Walmart! ISIS is beheading Christians, selling little girls into slavery, and is currently a terrorist org at war with the United States,” he wrote in the caption to his  YouTube video.  “But you can’t buy the General Lee toy car at Wallmart[sic]? It’s a damn shame.”

  • They gave up their typical life to face high winds and stormy seas… in a boat. 

    Matt and Jessica Johnson quit their day jobs, sold everything and bought a boat to sail the world. They haven’t looked back since.

    In August 2011, the 32-year-olds left their hometown of Grand Rapids, Michigan, in their sail boat. Mirror reports that so far the couple has visited 16 countries from South America to the Caribbean and even crossed the Atlantic Ocean twice.

    In their former lives, Matt was a sales manager at a car dealership and Jessica worked at an auto insurance company. But one day, they decided to sell everything, including their home, and save up for this life-time trip.

    “Our lives were the typical American Dream. Go to school, get married, buy a house, start a career,” the couple told the online news outlet. “So far we’ve also left out the part about having 2.5 kids.”

    But instead of kids, the Johnsons decided to add a new member to their travels by adopting a cat named Georgie. The feline

  • In an attempt to show women who won’t stop complaining about wearing heels what wimps they are, Brandon Cohen took it upon himself to “straight up dominate the heel game” by wearing a pair of strappy high heels for an entire day.

    Unfortunately for him, things don’t go quite as planned.

    The day starts at 8:30 a.m. with Cohen exchanging his shoes for a pair of black high heels. After only a few steps, he begins to immediately regret his decision.

    “I’m already in so much pain it’s astounding,” he says while he waits for the elevator.

    Cohen is then shown trying — and failing — to power through his daily activities from a whole new altitude.

    When he goes out for lunch, he recognizes his first mistake: parking so far away from the exit.

    As he goes down a stairwell, he grips both sides of the handle bars saying “this is just… not safe.”

    After lunch, at around 2:30 p.m, Cohen tells the person who’s filming that he has to get the car because he’s “not going to be able to survive that walk

  • Move over, Grumpy Cat. There’s a new adorably dissatisfied kitty winning hearts online. 

    Meet Luhu, the sad celebrity cat that is sure to your Facebook and Twitter feeds. 

    Luhu’s owner, Maggie Liu, has been uploading pictures her cat on her Instagram account, where more than 10,000 followers have been checking in on the cute sad-eye feline.

    The tabby cat lives with her two older brothers, Barher and Bardie, in Beijing, China. And although the three cats share the same mother, Luhu is the only one in the family with those big, sad eyes. 

    Even when playing with her toy panda, Luhu looks adorably distraught. Nothing seems to cheer her up.

    But despite what we may see, Luhu is far from a sad cat. She plays regularly with her brothers and has displayed these sad facial expressions ever since she was a kitten.

    Liu explains on the Instagram account that her cats “faces, tastes and personalities are totally different.”

    Well, different appears to be working. Luhu Internet continues to grow

  • Back to the Future fans may get a real kick out of this one.

    Lexus, the motor company most famous for its high-end SUVs, is introducing its latest mode of transportation … the Hoverboard. 

    The latest video in Lexus’ Amazing in Motion series reveals what appears to be a legitimate, rideable hoverboard that can float an inch off the ground. And while it’s not quite what we saw Marty McFly riding in Back to the Future 2, this impressive creation is far more technologically advanced.

    “When technology, design and imagination come together, amazing things can be achieved,” posted Lexus in their promotional video on YouTube.

    On the website, Lexus describes what went into making one of these cool hoverboards, which they’re calling the SLIDE. It uses magnetic levitation to achieve its floating movement. Through liquid nitrogen-cooled superconductors and permanent magnets, the hoverboard is able to support an actual rider. 

    The design of the SLIDE is unique, too. It features the Lexus symbol on

  • A Vancouver-based company is making headlines for all the right reasons with a line of single-serve coffee pods designed to combat the massive popularity of the environmentally unfriendly K-Cups.

    The original concept of single-serve coffee pods used in Keurig coffee machines, K-Cups are made of harmful plastic and, according to a report from Mother Jones, the number of K-Cups produced in in 2013 alone was enough to wrap around the planet more than 10 times.

    Knowing that K-Cups were generating such a negative impact on the environment, entrepreneur Darren Footz began the creation and design of the G-KUP.

    “Simply put, I want to change the way the world consumes single serve coffee. The current waste created by K-Cups is unacceptable,” Footz wrote on the G-KUP website.

    Business In Vancouver reports that G-KUP received a patent in February for what it claims is the world’s first 100% biodegradable and compostable single-serving coffee pod.

    The pods are made from renewable materials and are

  • Doctors in Chile have discovered a 50-year-old fetus inside a 92-year-old woman’s abdomen.

    After suffering a nasty fall, the woman was admitted to a hospital. That’s where doctors learned via X-ray that she was carrying a decades-old, 4.4 lbs fetus, the BBC reports.

    The rare phenomenon, known as a lithopedion, is the result of a fetus dying during pregnancy and becoming calcified.  

    Marco Vargas Lazo, the director of the hospital, called the case “extraordinarily rare.”

    The fetus, he said, was large and developed, occupying all of her abdominal cavity.

    According to reports, there are only 300 known cases of “stone babies” in the world.

    The study states that the chance of “abnormal pregnancy” is one in 11,000, with lithopedion occurring in 1.5% to 1.8% of those cases.

    After looking at all of the recorded cases, the study found two-thirds of the diagnosis happened in women over the age of 40. The “period of fetus retention” ranged from four to 60-year-old women.

    The 92-year-old did not

    It is not uncommon to see wedding dresses up for bid on eBay, but this beautiful Diane von Furstenberg number certainly stands out.

    The lace, size eight ‘Zarita’ dress was supposed to be worn in a wedding at City Hall in New York., but the dress was put up for auction after the owner and her Brooklyn based fiancé had split.

    The Metro reports that the owner is a 30-year-old British woman who wants to remain anonymous. She told the paper that, “while the dress still sits abandoned in the corner of her room, it acts as a constant reminder of what might have been. So although she loves it with all her heart, she has to let it go.”

    The original eBay post was titled “Rejected wedding dress seeks lasting love and holy matrimony.” Bidding on the dress has come to an end, reaching £1,150.00 ($2,242.60 CAD). 

    The e-Bay post began with a poignant anecdote: ”I was supposed to be worn at City Hall in New York. I was going to be the main attraction of a 60s wedding theme. I was going to be low-key,

    Raccoons are known for their thievery, but this little guy may also be an alcoholic.

    A raccoon broke into a warehouse, and instead of finding food, the furry creature found alcohol. He got wasted.

    Workers, at an alcoholic distribution warehouse, captured the raccoon on video stumbling all over the place and drinking from broken beer bottles.

    As seen on video, the critter definitely had a tough night at the warehouse: a beer case toppled over on the ground, scattering cans and bottles of beer everywhere.

    After having a few sips, the raccoon awkwardly attempts to escape the drunkard’s paradise, but not before completely wiping out at the doorway, much to the entertainment of the shop workers.

    With over 500,000 hits, the hilarious video is sure to make anyone’s day but let’s hope this poor guy makes a fast recovery from his hangover.

    What does $20,000 worth of ‘relentlessly gay’ décor look like?

    Thanks to a mean-spirited letter which has inspired a GoFundMe campaign, we may soon find out.

    Julie Baker of Baltimore, Md. says she received a note from her neighbour in response to a row of rainbow solar lamp jars in her front yard, which have “Love” and “Ohana” (Hawaiian for family) written on them.

    It reads:

    Your yard is becoming Relentlessly Gay! Myself and Others in the neighborhood ask that you Tone it Down. This is a Christian area and there are Children. Keep it up and I will be forced to call the police on You! Your kind need to have Respect for GOD.

    The letter was posted to Facebook (along with a photo of the jars) by a friend of Baker’s. Since the post went up Wednesday night, it has touched a nerve online and inspired everything from a Relentlessly Gay website, t-shirts, plans for a Relentlessly Gay Garden Party (with kid-friendly ideas, of course) and the GoFundMe page, intended to raise money for more
