Can of Whisky

A Panamanian company called Scottish Spirits has begun marketing this can of whisky in its Caribbean and Latin American markets. According to chief executive Manish Panshal, “The can is the perfect size to be shared between three people who can mix it with other things like cola,…It’s lightweight and portable and entirely recyclable, which is good news.”

Pulling a Tooth with a Rocket

This guy definitely deserves a parenting award. His son needed a tooth pulled, so what else could he do but use a model rocket to pull it out?

[Note: the kid wasn’t hurt. He seems to think it was kind of funny, too.]

High Rider Trims His Hedge

Two guys from Cambridge (I’m guessing not the university) have come up with a creative method of trimming, er, mowing their hedges:

Two Cambridge mates say they may turn their unusual method of trimming hedges into a business, after they suspended a ride-on mower from a crane to do the job.

“This is how the Waikato boys mow a hedge,” the ride-on mower operator told the Waikato Times.

The operator, who did not want to be named, is now nursing a broken hand, but said it wasn’t a fall from the mower that caused the injury but one off the crane.

Midway

Photographer Chris Jordan has published a series of photographs of baby albatrosses on the atoll of Midway who died because of our trash. Midway receives a lot of the trash from the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. Horrifying.

The nesting babies are fed bellies-full of plastic by their parents, who soar out over the vast polluted ocean collecting what looks to them like food to bring back to their young. On this diet of human trash, every year tens of thousands of albatross chicks die on Midway from starvation, toxicity, and choking. To document this phenomenon as faithfully as possible, not a single piece of plastic in any of these photographs was moved, placed, manipulated, arranged, or altered in any way. These images depict the actual stomach contents of baby birds in one of the world’s most remote marine sanctuaries, more than 2000 miles from the nearest continent.
