They’re going to compile a massive mosaic of self-portraits using selfies shot on April 22nd and posted to Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Google+ and Flickr that include the hashtag #GlobalSelfie. Participants also need to include their location in their photo, so NASA has created a handy little sign you can print, fill out and use in your selfie (see second image).
Visit the #GlobalSelfie website for more details and a full-resolution version of the location ID sign, which they’ve made available in over a dozen languages.

Tuna Flavored Cat Floss - When somebody says you have cat breath, we all know what they mean.

This Tuna Scented Cat Dental Floss has a flavor cats love and will assist you in making sure that your Siamese stays sweet and your Ginger avoids gingivitis. Kitty cavities will be a thing of the past as soon as you start flossing your feline. Cats love it!
We had a blast at the first day of Emerald City Comic Con. We brought Mr. Bacon and Bigfoot for photo ops and we’re giving away FREE stickers. As you can see, even Spider-Man couldn’t resist taking a picture with Sasquatch.
Also, we couldn’t resist posting some of our favorite costumes. The Vision and Scarlet Witch are wearing the costumes we wish were in the next Avengers movie. But, our absolute favorite of the day is the Joker/Harley Quinn mashup with The Big Lebowski. Why so, like, serious, man?
This is one of the best books in the Archie McPhee Library. Mail-Order Mysteries: Real Stuff from Old Comic Book Ads! [Buy from Amazon] by Kirk Demarais. The premise is irresistible. He took the ads from comic books and matched them up with what you actually got if you ordered. All the products are varying degrees of disappointing, but the book is anything but.
Demarais’ commentary is clever and dead on, mixing misty nostalgia with sharp focus reality. As you can see from the page above, the “7 Feet Tall” ghost is actually a balloon with a plastic sheet (garbage bag). Reading the copy, he imagines a complicated voice-activated control system, but the control is merely a string. It is, as Demarais points out, deflating.
Whether you are looking to this book for inspiration or curiosity, you will be bowled over by the printing and beautiful layout. Plus, the cover and back cover glow in the dark! (It’s like some crazy dream!)
Here’s yet another awesome thing about Japan: Pigeon Mask Parties.
Whether they’re made of feathers or latex, hanging out in the park or at a bar, it’s clear that pigeons love to flock. Did you know that a group of pigeons is called a loft? That means you could also call these gatherings Loft Parties. It sounds like Pigeon Mask code.
Horse Head Squirrel Feeder - It turns out that the Horse Mask is even funnier when it’s on a squirrel! Put some peanut butter on the shelf inside this squirrel feeder and as the squirrel eats it, he’ll be wearing the horse mask. Feeds and humiliates squirrels at the same time!
These are just some of our favourites. Head over to RocketNews24 to view them all.
Happy New Year! It’s the year of the horse on Geyser of Awesome!
