Twenty-six cool And unusual bed designs for your sleepy viewing pleasure.Twenty-six cool And unusual bed designs for your sleepy viewing pleasure.

My pillow-top bed is looking pretty boring compared to this list of non-boring beds by the folks over at coincidentally named BoringPanda.com. Sidenote: that may be one of the coolest domain names I've come across this year which is neither coincidental or boring. Mind blown.

YouTube experimenting with the new design dubbed Cosmic Panda.YouTube experimenting with the new design dubbed Cosmic Panda.

I had a chance to try this out last night and I liked the experience. The new design seems to take a couple cues from Hulu and other video sites by utilizing a darker background to make the video pop more. The other neat thing is that the comments will scroll while keeping the video locked to the top of screen and in view. That is surely a welcome change for those who enjoy reading inane YouTube comments. You can try it out for yourself over yonder.

A list of ten bizarre candies up for sale at your local dollar store. Gummy Rats anyone?A list of ten bizarre candies up for sale at your local dollar store. Gummy Rats anyone?

I don't know what's so bizarre about this list of delicious treats from Cafe Society. I mean who wouldn't want to eat a marshmallow-fluff-type-substance in a tube with a picture of a gorilla on it? At least the fluff comes out from the top of the tube and not the bottom (not sure if this is the case upon further inspection). Bonus: panda flavor available as well.

Meet some of the entries for 'creatively groomed' dog shows all over the United States. This feels so wrong.
