Do you have a hard time falling asleep at night? Is it so bad and specific you need a fried chicken-shaped pillow with an integrated pouch for your phone so you can play audio of chicken frying just so you can fall asleep?
What has a Pikachu head, entirely too many body segments, and nobody asked for? If you answered a Pikachu centipede body pillow, then you’re correct. Available from Chinese online retailer AliExpress, falling asleep with one of these ‘Very Long Pikachu Insect Plushes’ can almost guarantee a poor night’s sleep filled entirely with nightmares.
Apparently, because we don’t already have enough problem with scooters weaving in and out of traffic, scientists are working on a way for rats to drive around in miniature cars. Yes, these rodents can now literally join the rat race.
There are lots of different ways to tell the time. You can use an old school analog clock with hands, a segmented digital display, or even a sundial. But I can say with 100% certainty that this is the first clock I’ve ever seen that tells time with sequins.
When we die, some of us want to be cremated, while others want to be buried, and a select few people want their body parts to be used for medical science. But I’m not sure many people would raise their hands and say “yeah, please turn my bones into dice so someone can play D&D with them.”
Were you a good boy or girl this year? Doesn’t matter, 2020 has spoken and we’re all getting ketchup flavored candy canes for Christmas anyways.

There’s something about creatures with more than four legs that creeps me out. The more legs, the worse the creepy factor. While spiders sit somewhere in the middle between an ant and a millipede, they can still be pretty terrifying, especially if you’re an arachnophobe.
The original Rubik’s Cube is one of the most iconic and popular toys of all time. From its deceptively simple design to its frustrating complexity for noobs, to the amazing way that some people can solve them in seconds, they’re a mechanical masterpiece of puzzle goodness.
Usually, when you think of Godzilla, you imagine the giant reptilian breathing fire from his mouth as he stomps on Tokyo. But it turns out that the monster can also dispense tissues between his mighty jaws.
Despite getting its start back in 1966, Star Trek continues to entertain, with new series like Star Trek: Discovery, Picard, and Lower Decks, all actively in production. Over the years, the franchise has certainly evolved, though in general, sticking to a formula that blends social commentary, science fiction, adventure, and humor.
