Leave Those S'mores Alone!

Okay, now the government has gone too far!

ChooseMyPlate.gov has published the recipe for a healthy alternative to S'mores, that melted-chocolate-and-marshmallow-on-graham-cracker concoction that's so messy and wonderful, especially in the summer.

Ready? Instead of chocolate, strawberries. Instead of marshmallow, yogurt.

And instead of graham crackers, a couple of pieces of cardboard.

Okay, that last part's not real, but it might as well be.

Nothing wrong with strawberries and yogurt - they make a nice parfait.

But they pale in comparison to melty, drippy, messy chocolate and marshmallow.

Mind your own beeswax, ChooseMyPlate.gov!

A Full Circle Rainbow

This is tremendously rare.

Some folks at the top of an observation tower over Niagara Falls shot some tremendous footage of a full-circle rainbow.

It's an amazing thing to see!

When they realized what they were looking at here at Niagara Falls, their jaws dropped. It's a full circle rainbow! You’ll want to see it, too.(h/t to southlakemotors/YouTube)

Beyonce Meets Duck Tales

Sometimes, mash-ups of songs are a little silly.

This is one of them - the video of Beyonce's "Single Ladies" mashed up with the theme song from Duck Tales.

You know what?

It sort of works. Check it out, just for the fun of it!

Are You Ready for Manhattanhenge?

Manhattanhenge happens a couple of times each year.

It's the name for the days on which the setting sun lines up perfectly with Manhattan's gridded streets to create some awesome pictures.

Manhattanhenge happens tonight and tomorrow night.

NBC New York reports the best places to witness it are cross streets like 14th, 23rd, 34th, 42nd and 57th streets.

They recommend that you go as far east as you can in Manhattan without losing sight of New Jersey.

Of course, that only works if you're in New York.

So here's what it looked like a few years ago. And I'm sure you can find some decent video and shots on YouTube after tonight and tomorrow, asuming the weather cooperates.

Got an Extra $100 Million Hanging Around?

Neverland, the California ranch owned by Michael Jackson, is on the market.

For just $100 million dollars, you can grab up the 2700-acre property in Los Olivos, just north of Santa Barbara.

There are 22 structures in all, including the train station that's modeled after the one on the Disney properties, plus a swimming pool, tennis court, basketball court and a 50-seat theater.

It's not called Neverland anymore - it's now Sycamore Valley Ranch - and the amusement park rides Jackson used to keep there are gone.

The listing agents say they're pre-screening buyers to keep out Jackson fans. They don't want someone to buy it up and turn it into a Graceland-style attraction.

Just in case that's what you had in mind.

"I Thought This Was Supposed To Be a Man's Movie"

Mad Max: Fury Road was screened at the Cannes Film Festival, and afterwards, some of the stars and the crew appeared in a press conference.

A reporter from Toronto stood up and asked Tom Hardy, the actor who played Mad Max, if he questioned why there were so many women in the movie.

"I thought this was supposed to be a man's movie," said the reporter.

Tom's reaction is classic. Short, sweet, to the point.

Check it out.

Congratulations, You're a Piglet

The actors from Game of Thrones are piling up the honors.

Here's one that may leave them scratching their heads a bit, though.

The folks at the Detroit Zoo this week unveiled four of five warthog piglets born there in April.

The video shows Daenerys, Sansa, Cersei and Hodor playing in their enclosure.

Tyrion, the runt of the litter, wasn't quite big enough for public display yet.

Sounds about right...

Next Up: The Death Star Building?

The new offices of Chinese on-line game developer NetDragon Websoft are out of this world.

Well, not literally, but close.

The company spent close to $160 million - including licensing fees - to build a headquarters that looks like the USS Enterprise - the one you know from the Star Trek movies.

Check out the video from IGN News. It really is pretty incredible.
