“When it comes to video games, cheating isn’t very glamorous and the stakes are, well, nonexistent. Cheating at video games is a harmless activity – especially if you’re playing games by yourself. Slipping an ace out of your cuff in the middle of a heated poker match is fun and all, but in a video game you bend time and space for your personal enjoyment – and bragging rights. Sadly, more often than not, video game designers don’t give much thought to their cheats. Clearly they’re too focused on the quality of the game to dwell on how to break it. There’s only a handful of cheats in our twenty-plus years of gaming experience that we remember with any clarity and fondness. Lucky for you, we collected a few of the most memorable.” w/ photos
“Meerkats at a new enclosure at Longleat Safari Park have developed a fetish for women’s sandals and painted nails – and have even been sneakily peering up visitors’ skirts. The creatures seem to be enjoying their new enclosure in Jungle Kingdom – an enclosure into which visitors can enter and walk among the meerkats – but their foot fascination has forced staff to put up warning signs about their keen interest in feet. Keepers have been kept on their toes and have been on alert over the past week, watching out for the 19 adventurous ‘leerkats’. Keeper Catriona Carr said: ‘We’ve had to keep an eye on anybody wearing sandals or flip-flops, especially if they have painted toenails. ‘They seem to be more attracted to reds and blues for some reason. We’re not entirely sure what it is about the feet. It might be the bright colours of the footwear and toenails, the movement of the toes or even the smell.” w/ photo + video
“The Yellow Driver of Team Hot Wheels breaks the world record for distance jump in a four-wheeled vehicle at the Indianapolis 500. Watch as the Yellow Driver, Tanner Foust, drops 10 stories down 90 feet of orange track and soars 332 feet through the air.”
“Marco Polo wrote about them. Sideshows exhibited them as a cross between a chicken and a rabbit. Some say it is the closest thing the bird world gets to a tribble. Others that it must be some kind of refugee from The Muppet Show. This is the Silky. It is quite probably the coolest breed of chicken on the planet, particularly when it comes to its fabulous plumage. The general fluffiness of the Silkie makes it unusual, not to mention attractive, but it has many other endearing qualities as well as an interesting history. They are one of the calmest chicken breeds and they generally never run around like, well, like a headless chicken. In fact they love nothing more than to grab a perch and just watch the world go by.” w/ photos
“These are not artificial roses! The Rainbow Rose is now available in the UK for the first time and although you may think that these weird and wonderful blooms are painted or artificial they are one hundred percent natural. Almost. Well, ninety nine percent. Well, OK, they have been messed with, but not, as you may expect, on a genetic level.” w/ photos
