We recently introduced you to the new world's tallest dog and now it's time to meet the new holder of the "world's longest tail" Guinness title. Keon is an Irish Wolfhound, which are known for having long tails to start with. But then even most wolfhounds don't have tails that measure 30.2" -that's over two and a half feet long and it doesn't even include the hair at the end. In fact, Keon's tail is 1.7" longer than the previous Guinness record holder.
No word on how often he knocks things over when he gets that thing wagging.

There are plenty of fake fantastic beasts out there, from the magical unicorns people claim to see prancing around the forest to those fire breathing dragons they see flying across the sky. But believe me when I tell you that pugcorns are real- and they're the most magical little mugs you'll ever meet! The pugcorn can turn a turd into a creampuff with a touch of their horn, and they vomit rainbows instead of undigested kibble. But the pugcorn's neatest trick is their ability to melt even the coldest of hearts with their sweet little smiles and sparkly eyes, an ability that may make them the key to world peace! Good thing they actually exist...
Spread smiles wherever you go with this Believe In Pugcorns t-shirt by NemiMakeit, it's the adorably silly way to show the world you want to believe in fantastic creatures and their power to make people happy!

The following article is from the new book Uncle John’s Uncanny Bathroom Reader.
Looking for a theme for your next road trip? How about “Places Where My Favorite Horror Films Were Shot”? If that appeals to you, here are a few scary spots you’ll want to add to your agenda.
SILENCE OF THE LAMBS (1991)
Creepy Place: The house where serial killer “Buffalo Bill” (Ted Levine) lived, where he kept kidnapped women in a pit in the basement, and where he is eventually confronted by FBI trainee Clarice Starling (Jodie Foster)
Real-Life Location: 8 Circle Street, Perryopolis, Pennsylvania (a suburb of Pittsburgh)
Story: In the movie, the house is located in the fictional town of Belvedere, Ohio, but most of the film was actually shot near Pittsburgh. This house was one of several picked by movie location scouts in 1989, two years before the film came out. “They were looking for a home in which you entered the front door and had a straight line through,” owner Barbara Lloyd told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. “They wanted it to look like a spider web, with Buffalo Bill drawing Jodie Foster into the foyer, into the kitchen, then into the basement.” The home got the approval of director Jonathan Demme, and a film crew showed up to film inside the home for three days in early 1990.

Extra: The home made the news in 2015, when the Lloyds put it up for sale. The Lloyds told reporters that the home has a full basement…but no creepy pit. (That part of the movie was filmed in a studio.)
THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT (1999)

Creepy Place: The woods where the young filmmakers disappear

Apps like Snapchat and Instagram do all kinds of funny things with people's faces when their filters are applied to a photo, but most of these filters are silly and don't improve the look of the person in the photo.
But now there's Meitu, an app with filters that are both silly and enhance a person's looks- by making them look extremely cute!
Meitu is an anime beauty app that puts a sparkle in your big, beautiful eyes, adds a glow to your eerily smooth skin, and makes your rosy lips look perfectly pouty.
What's that you say? These words don't describe your face at all? They will when Meitu is finished with you!
Recently there has been talk about Meitu collecting user data and selling it, but the company behind the app told CNET why Meitu asks for so many seemingly unneeded permissions upon download:
Meitu told CNET in a statement that the data collection code was included because the company is headquartered in China, where tracking services provided by app stores such as the Apple App Store and Google Play are blocked.
"To get around this, Meitu employs a combination of third-party and in-house data tracking systems to make sure the user data tracked is consistent," said a Meitu spokesperson.
Sounds legit to me, and what's a little third-party data collection when you're left looking this fabulous, amirite? *wink*

Ska and rocksteady started in Jamaica in the 1960s and eventually evolved into reggae, dub, dancehall and ragga. The evolution of the music was a natural result of the island's independence. By the 80s, djs would bring sound systems to local clubs so the masses could enjoy live, local music.
