I choose you, Frytato!
Artist H. Caldwell Tanner accidentally created Pokemon that are more believable than half the ones to come out since the original 151.
New 3D laser scans of the monument are unveiling old mysteries and creating new ones. Plus, 15 “real” ghosts to hunt down this Halloween and California questions its gas price spike.
Revealing: The new images suggests that the stonemasons used the best materials where the rays would hit them - shining in the last light of the setting winter solstice sun, or at dawn on the longest day.
The scans revealed 'hidden' images on many of the stones. Here, arrow heads are clearly visible on stone 4 of Stonehenge.

Who needs fancy post-production when you have paint? Feel free to insert your own 50 Shades Of Grey pun here.
WHO MAKES THESE? Isn't the point of mannequins to entice consumers to buy clothes and not therapy?
Would you dare to wear them? Seriously, they look like something out of Silent Hill .
According to the creator, Lyall Coburn, Scary Beautiful sets out to challenge current body ideals by "...inflicting an unexpected new beauty standard."
All it looks like they're inflicting is pain on that poor model.
The eyes blink, the mouth moves, and it even contains a fan to keep the cosplayer inside from overheating. Plus, living alone is not the same as being lonely and lots of fall cocktails.

Oh God why? Buzzfeed was lucky(?) enough to get a sneak peek at Batman's nemesis. Let's just say it isn't pretty.
Buzzfeed showed off a few pages from inside the landmark Batman #13 Monday, but you never got a good look at Joker's face.
And now you may wish you hadn't.
Like The Fly, only with less Jeff Goldblum and a more dubious understanding of genetics. Thank goodness this version of the script didn't make it out of pre-production.
Redditor Sketchampm dug up this concept art from the version of Jurassic Park IV that was being kicked around back in 2007. At the time, the movie was being spearheaded by William Monahan and John Sayles.
At the time Spielberg was completely on board, calling the script the "mother of all ideas" and he wished they'd approached him sooner so it could have been the third movie instead.
Had it seen the light of day, the plot would've involved an ex-commander named Nick being tapped by John Hammond to retrieve the shaving cream can full of dinosaur DNA from the first movie. However after finding the dummy shaving cream container, Nick is kidnapped by the Grendal company (I see what you did there, scriptwriters) which is determined to cross-breed dinosaurs into an insane hybrid.
The whole insane plot summary can be found on Ain't It Cool.

Everyone else is so inconsiderate. Plus, movies made possible by side character incompetence and heroic animals saving animals.

“I thought, I have to listen to my original audience. And that's who I wrote it for.” The master of things that go bump in the night listened to the social web when he decided to make his first foray into adult fiction in almost 20 years with the new novel, Red Rain .
Ask anyone whose formative years were the 1990s about R.L. Stine and they'll probably list off their favorite Goosebump novels. Or, if they're a little older, their favorite Fear Street books. They might even talk about his television series and how a particular story traumatized them for life, giving ventriloquist dummies or Halloween masks the power to make them tremble well into their twenties or thirties.
Stine has scared at least two generations of American kids, so one might expect him to be aloof, or even a little scary, but he was genial and cheery talking with BuzzFeed about Red Rain, his latest novel, aimed at the fans of his early books who are now all grown up.

It's been seventeen years since your last adult novel hit was published, what made you step back into the adult novel arena?
I'm on Twitter, and it's a great way to keep in touch with all my old readers from the '90s. They're all there, they're twenty-somethings and thirty-somethings now, no kids. Just my original audience. And it's wonderful for me. We have the best time! They're a great readership. And they're all saying, "Oh we loved you when we were kids, please write something for us." And I thought, I have to listen to my original audience. And that's who I wrote it for. That was really the whole inspiration for it. My audience was still out there, so why don't I give it another try?
Was the switch to writing for an adult audience difficult?
Very. It's not just the length. I've been saying it's like a runner who is a sprinter, and then suddenly has to run a marathon. You use the same skills, but everything is different. When I write a Goosebumps book I don't really want to scare kids. So I have to make sure they know it's a fantasy. They have to know it's not real, it couldn't happen. That's important for those books.
But when you write adult books every detail has to be real, and believable or the readers aren't going to go along with you. They don't want it to be a silly fantasy. It's gotta seem like it could really happen and it's just the complete opposite of what I normally do.
What was the initial spark that got this story going?
It was kids. It was doing evil kids. It was the first thing I thought of when deciding what to write. I thought people would find it really ironic if I did evil kids. Because I do so many good kids. Every book has a good kid battling evil. So I thought people would find it funny if I turned it around. And then I got interested in twins.
Yeah, for some reason evil kids seem to come in pairs. When I was reading, the boys reminded me of the girls from The Shining mixed with the Children of the Corn.
People find twins scary. I don't understand it, but all through time — I did a lot of research on twins — and it goes way back in history and people were always frightened. They'd separate them at birth because they were bad luck. You couldn't bury a twin in dry ground or your whole village would go dry. And there's all these beliefs that twins control the weather. And that's how it developed. And I always had an idea of starting out with the hurricane, or just some completely devastating natural disaster.

We gave them a cell phone, they took some selfies, glitter and blood was dumped upon those selfies. The cast was there to talk about Season Three , but Buzzfeed had other plans.
