Pancake virtuoso Nathan Shields (previously featured here) just whipped up this awesome batch of pancakes depicting each one of Santa’s legendary flying reindeer, including Rudolph and his luminous red nose.
Creating reindeer with pancake batter is no mean feat. They’re even displayed in the order in which Santa Claus calls out their names in “The Night Before Christmas.” We’re going to guess they were happily eaten in that order as well.
If you’re looking for a little high-tech in your ugly Christmas sweater, Mark Rober and his company, Digital Dudz, have got you covered. Mark is a former Nasa scientist who spent nine years working on the Curiosity rover before breaking into the novelty clothing business. Mark creates holidays garments which utilize a pouch, the wearer’s smartphone, and a free app to take their festive look to the next level.
His latest efforts make use of a free Android and iPhone app to reinvigorate the tired ugly-Christmas-sweater genre. Download the app, slip your smartphone in the Velcro pouch, and then just stand back smugly sipping your eggnog as the plaudits roll in.
Rober said, “It just blows people’s minds, because for thousands of years clothing has been static. It doesn’t move. And then when it does, people are like, ‘What kind of sorcery is that?’ And then you explain that it’s a phone and they’re like, ‘Oh. Yeah.’”
Here you see a design which features a cozy, flickering fire merrily burning inside the sweater’s kitschy fireplace. This is just one of the five different designs available this year. Click here to view videos demonstrations of all the sweaters.

Ridiculously cute baby animals, because… well, do I need a reason?
Today the Department of Awesomely Good Deeds transports us to the sun-kissed waters off the coast of São Paulo, Brazil. That’s where Marcos Carramao de Farias was out fishing when he spotted a baby dolphin entangled in a plastic bag and struggling to swim. After a minute or so of trying, Marcos and a fellow fisherman managed to catch the calf in a net and bring it aboard their boat where they gently freed it from the bag.
That little triumph might sound like the best part of this tale, but it isn’t. What’s even more wonderful than the good deed itself is how the wee dolphin appears to thank the gentlemen after they return it to the water. The calf disappears beneath the surface only to immediately reappear up on its tail to do a quick and distinctly joyful dance atop the water before swimming away. An awesomely good deed deserves an awesome thank you and that’s exactly what those kind fishermen received.
Texas couple Melanie Typaldos and Richard Loveman share their home and their lives in Buda, Texas with a 112-pound capybara named Gary. They even take him on road trips. Melanie and Richard first fell in love with Capybaras during a holiday in Venezuela. They adopted Gary after his former owner was no longer able to care for him:
‘Athough some people might find it strange, it’s really no different than having a dog or a cat,’ said Ms Typaldos, who installed a pool in her backyard for Gary to cool off in. ‘Gary is really very smart and he’s very affectionate. He comes when he’s called and he likes to sleep with me,’ she added.
As you can see from some of the photos above, Gary gets along smashingly with the rest of the family’s menagerie, which includes a horse, rabbits, tortoises, dogs, and a cat:
‘He gets on well with the other animals, although he likes to chase the rabbits for fun. He does sometimes get angry with the tortoises because he thinks they invade his space and there is nothing he can do about it.’
Gary has even learned how to do different tricks on cue. He can raise a paw to shake, turn in a circle, stand up on his hind legs, and jump up on things on command. We’d sure love to meet him.
