Take one part Wolverine then add a dash of Raptor and you’ve got Wolverineasaurus! That’s what creator Elbo x Hoobs is calling this glass pipe. It looks amazing, but be careful you don’t poke your eyes out with those claws.

Each of these USB flash drives will be made from tactile, water resistant silicone that boasts of multiple moving parts as well as accessories, and surely it puts the word “flash” in the DIY USB Flash Drive Heroes name! These novelty USB sticks will be different from the rest, since you will be able to retain the protective cap, while the techy section remains protected at all times in a Pez dispenser style.

You cannot just leave a cat cooped up at home all day long, as it too, has the need to hunt – being part of its built-in nature, that is. Since you are out at work from morning till dusk, and letting loose a couple of rats before you leave for the office would most probably result in you greeting a disgusting sight by the time you return home (not to mention that awful, rotting smell of a carcass), how about getting a toy to keep your feline friend amused and occupied while you are gone? The $39.95 Solar Powered Cat Tantalizer lives up to its name by never requiring to fall back on batteries, but will move whenever it is struck by sunlight to simulate the behavior of prey.
The Solar Powered Cat Tantalizer did pick up the gong for being the Best Cat Product of the Year by Cat Fancy magazine, and it is affixed to a window or glass door using industrial-grade suction cups which are capable of resisting even the strongest tug by a leaping pet. Whenever it’s solar cell is in the path of direct sunlight, the built-in motor will activate, moving the rod back and forth in order to cause the dangling plastic ball and colorful feathers to sway and bounce, mesmerizing your pet cat and prompting them to exercise and practice their hunting skills. You can also detach it for manual operation whenever you are home.
Really, this is dangerous because I just spent twenty minutes playing Atari Breakout instead of writing the post you’re reading right now. I blame Google, who has put this little Easter Egg in its Google Image Search to celebrate the 37th anniversary of the game. All you have to do is search “atari breakout” and your screen transforms automatically, killing any chance of a productive day. It’s as addictive as you’d expect so consider yourself warned.

The latest Japanese photo meme is only slightly weirder than the Harry Potter Quidditch and Dragon Ball Attack memes that it replaces. It’s inspired by the popular anime Attack on Titan and it involves making it look like humans are fighting a giant who is trying to eat them for a light snack. Okay, we get it Japan. You win at crazy photo memes.

The upcoming Brian Wood X-Men title featuring the all-woman team of Rogue, Storm, Jubilee, Psylocke, Rachel Grey and Kitty Pryde has faced some fan backlash. Now Scottie Young has come up with the perfect variant cover to address the situation. I particularly like Storm raining on Wolverine’s parade.

In this incredible short, we get a butt-kicking heroine that is to aliens what Daryl Dixon is to zombies. They’re some seriously creepy creatures—and even when it seems she’s got no hope of survival, it’s the aliens who end up dead on the ground in a puddle of their own blue blood. The short is the work of Patrick Kalyn who has contributed to films like Avatar, King Kong and District 9. This one will suck you in so quickly, you’ll wish it was a trailer for an upcoming full-length feature.
