Cartoon Characters in Famous Paintings

Mind Twisting Art: Cartoons Mixed Into Classic Paintings

There’s a cartoon world, and there’s a real world. Cartoons are supposed to stay in the cartoon world, don’t you think? Whenever I see them branch out into the real world, it kinda freaks me out, like my brain can’t handle it or something. When Richard wrote about these Disney characters portrayed as strippers, it skeeved me out a little. There’s just something about seeing those characters take it all off that’s just wrong. Ok, I admit the Tarzan was kinda cute, I’ve always had ...

Woman Arrested Over Cookie Fight

Woman Attacks Over Missing Girl Scout Cookies

This is so funny to me because I love Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies and if mine came up missing, I might attack someone too. I mean, you just don’t mess with a person’s Thin Mints. She should have known better. Ok, maybe not, but I still can’t stop laughing over this story. Last Monday night a 31-year-old woman in Florida woke up to find her Thin Mints were missing. She marched right into her roommate’s bedroom and started accusing her of eating them. She ...

Handmade Cup Sleeves and Insulators

Geek Inspired Design: Cozy Coffee Cup Cuteness

I love hot coffee and tea. I also love being cozy. So when I found this little cup sleeve design called a “Cup Cozie,” I knew I had to write about it. This is the perfect little accessory for any geek like me who loves her daily afternoon trip to Starbucks. Each one of these insulators is hand embroidered. The fabric is brown on the outside and polka-dotted on the inside. Sew Tara, who has been very successful selling these in her Etsy Shop, creates ...

Coke Recipe Found In Newspaper

The Original Coca-Cola Recipe Revealed

There is a feud going on right now that not very many people know about, and it’s centered around the city I live in, Atlanta. This American Life claims to have found the original recipe for Coca-Cola. Coca-Cola says that the recipe is still safe and sound right here in Atlanta in a bank vault where it’s been hidden for 125 years. I’ve read both sides of the story. This American Life actually has compelling reasons to believe the recipe they found is the real ...

Playable Angry Birds Birthday Cake

Food Play: An Epic Playable Angry Birds Birthday Cake

How do you impress your kids these days?  I mean, not that I am much for spoiling just for the heck of it, but in a day and age when kids pretty much have everything they wish for, what can you do to make their one day of the year so much more special than it already is?  Well, it turns out there is a lot you can do.  And, if you thought that Angry Birds wouldn’t have anything to do with it, I can ...

Star Wars Influence On World

How Star Wars Changed The World [Infographic]

Many times we have mentioned here on Bit Rebels how Star Wars has changed the world.  There are more gizmos and gadgets then we really care to acknowledge that have come from those movies, and it’s not about to stop anytime soon.  We are inspired about a future full of robots, droids and gadgets that will make our living so much easier.  Having a clone that goes to work to fulfill your daily quota isn’t too far away some scientists and engineers say.  But why?  ...

2000 As Imagined In 1910

24 Images Of The Year 2000 As Imagined In 1910

It’s easy to underestimate the future if you know what I mean.  It will come in all the forms and shapes that you haven’t even imagined yet.  If someone were to say to me that they knew what the future would look like, I would immediately be concerned about that person’s well being.  And, since the chances are quite slim that this person was really from the future, I wouldn’t think much of the remark in the first place.  However, it’s not a crime to ...

The Dynamics of Viral Videos

The Magic Of Viral Videos & A Food Court Disaster

It’s so funny to me how people always want to know the step-by-step plan for making a video go viral. It’s like they think a few people out there are keeping this big secret about it, and they will do anything to find out what it is. What some people don’t realize is that you cannot force a video to naturally go viral. Sure, you can make sure it’s funny, short, clever etc.. but once that video is posted to the Internet, it’s out of ...

Transformers Inspired Megatron Decepticon Design

Whoa! Transformers Inspired Steel Megatron Tank Design

What would you do if you were bored and had 5.51 tons of steel lying around? Hmm… you could always do what this Chinese man did and build a super duper kick ass mind blowing Megatron tank with it. The person who created this handcrafted beauty calls himself Steel Legend. I’m dying to know exactly how much it cost him to make this, but that info is nowhere to be found. It is inspired by the Transformers 2 movie, and the movie itself is the ...

Control Kinect With Swimming Movements

Kinect SwimBrowser: Surf The Internet Doing The Breast Stroke

We all know what great exercise swimming is. When I first read about this, I thought, “Great! Now we can swim, get exercise and surf the web all at the same time.” That’s true if you can hack your Kinect the way David Stolarsky did. For the 2011 PrimeSense/OpenNI Developer Challenge, he created SwimBrowser, a browser that requires the user to use hand motions similar to those you would use when swimming underwater. Like we’ve said many times before on Bit Rebels, it seems the ...

Twitter Makes You Better Person

8 Ways Twitter Can Make You A Better Person

I enjoy being on Twitter.  I am on that site all the time.  I started using Twitter in 2008, and I have seen firsthand its tremendous growth.  I remember the days when there were very few of us who tweeted 24/7.  We interacted with our Twitter friends all the way up until we fell asleep at night, and got on there again as soon as we woke up in the morning; hence the word Twitter-holic was formed.  There are so many people on Twitter you ...

Social Media Relatiionship Building

The Proof That Social Media Friendships Are Real

Many times when people don’t understand something, they become afraid of it. The fear of the unknown seems to be a human characteristic that all of us have to some extent. I’ve noticed this is very relevant when it comes to online relationships and social media. You would think that by now, almost everyone would feel comfortable on Facebook, Twitter and other social sites. However, that is not the case. There are still many people out there who are very fearful about social media and ...

Plexiglass Dome Landscape Office Design

Inspiring Offices: Bubble Desk Landscape Interior Design

Offices around the world are starting to realize that having an inspiring environment will make people work harder and be happier while doing it.  Some companies are still in the old frame of mind and don’t really care about the work environments that their employees have to endure during their stay at the office.  Until recently, the fortunate ones to enjoy a creative office were usually the people who work at IT companies around the world.  I don’t know if it was Google or some ...
