Artists Create A Hilarious “Where’s Waldo?” Coronavirus Edition

If you’re not familiar with who Waldo is, he’s the main character of the “Where’s Waldo?” children’s puzzle books created by artist Martin Handford back in 1987. Over the last thirty years, Waldo has traveled all over the world (and even to space) but everything changed in 2020. Due to the coronavirus panic, Waldo can no longer freely roam the world like he used to and cartoonists Martin Handford and Clay Bennett teamed up to illustrate that in a hilarious coronavirus-themed edition of “Where’s Waldo?”.

Children’s Author Mo Willems Helps Kids Stuck In Quarantine Pass Time By Teaching Them How To Draw

As countries are announcing quarantine one by one, millions of children get stuck in homes unable to go to schools and kindergartens. And to help them pass time and teach them some useful skills, children’s author and illustrator Mo Willems⁠ started giving online drawing lessons free of charge.

Children’s author Mo Willems announced he’s starting a special show called Lunch Doodles on YouTube

Image credits: The Kennedy Center

The artist promises to release a new episode of his new show, called Lunch Doodles, every day for the next couple of weeks. In his show, Mo not only encourages children to doodle along with him, but also to share their drawings with the world.

In it, Mo will be teaching children how to draw free of charge

Image credits: The Kennedy Center

Mo has written many children’s books, including “The Pigeon Has to Go to School!” “I Will Take a Nap!” and “Knufflebunny”, and certainly knows how to draw children’s attention. He records Lunch Doodles from his own home and the videos are shared weekday at 1 p.m. EST on Kennedy Center’s YouTube account and their website.

The author wrote many children’s books, such as The Pigeon Has to Go to School! and I Will Take a Nap!

Image credits: The Kennedy Center

“I know a lot of you guys are not in school,” said the author in the introductory video uploaded on Monday. “You’re at home right now because of all the things that are going on. Well, guess what? I’m at home, too. We’re gonna hang out together.”

In his videos, Mo encourages children to doodle along with him

Mo also encourages children to submit their questions to LUNCHDOODLES@kennedy-center.org and says he’ll be responding to them on his show.

Children can also submit questions which Mo will be answering on his show

Mo is already on his fourth episode of Lunch Doodles so you have a lot of catching up to do!

Italians Design An Emergency Hospital Out Of Shipping Containers

Currently, Italy is the world’s worst-hit country by the pandemic. Within the last 24 hours, 743 have passed away from Covid-19, bringing the death toll to a total of 6,820. Over 3,000 people are left in critical condition with more and more of them arriving at the ICU every day. The hospitals are overcrowded and doctors and nurses are run down from exhaustion. Unfortunately, the pandemic shows no signs of easing any time soon.

More info: curapods.org | squintopera.com

Recently, Italian architects designed a life-saving solution to increase the ICU capacity

Image credits: Squint Opera

With the growing need for increased ICU capacity, both the government and various organizations are looking for solutions to solve the problem that is costing lives.

Image credits: Squint Opera

Recently, an international task force of designers, engineers, medical professionals, and military experts teamed up to create CURA—an open-source project aimed at capacity building in Intensive Care Units (ICU).

Their invention called CURA, allows turning shipping containers into portable intensive care pods

Image credits: Squint Opera

The creators of CURA got the brilliant idea to turn shipping containers into intensive care pods that will serve as wards for COVID-19 patients. The project was designed by Italian architects Carlo Ratti and Italo Rota.

Image credits: Squint Opera

According to the creators, these 20-foot intermodal containers can be mounted as quickly as a hospital tent, but are as safe as the isolation ward due to biocontainment with negative pressure.

Image credits: Squint Opera

These pods are easy to transport and can be deployed within hours. They can be used individually or can be set up in various arrangements connected by an inflatable structure.

Image credits: Squint Opera

Each of the biocontainment units has the capacity to fit medical equipment and two patients.

Image credits: Squint Opera

The very first CURA is currently being built in Milan, Italy

Image credits: Squint Opera

The very first CURA, which is being developed in an open-source, not-for-profit framework, is now being built in Milan, Italy, with the sponsorship of UniCredit.

Company Creates Sword-Like Keys To Make Unlocking Doors A Fantasy Experience

Who doesn’t love to feel like a king, queen, or even battle warrior wielding a sword? There’s a company that allows you to feel a little bit like that every day by simply unlocking your doors. This company is called Hero’s Armory and it manufactures sword-shaped keys that are inspired by various fantasy movies and video games.

More info: herosarmory.com | twitter.com

There’s a company called Hero’s Armory that manufactures sword-shaped keys that are inspired by various fantasy movies and video games

Image credits: Hero’s Armory

These fantastic keys came to life thanks to a successful Kickstarter campaign that gained the support of 1,365 people—which is completely unsurprising given that these keys look absolutely amazing.

Image credits: Hero’s Armory

They run for $12.99 and are available in 21 different designs.

Image credits: Hero’s Armory

Inspiration for them comes from Zelda, Kingdom Hearts, Lord of the Rings, Game of Thrones, Harry Potter, and many more. Every nerd is certain to find something appealing to them.

Image credits: Hero’s Armory

“The Key Armory was born out of wanting to hold onto something that constantly reminded us of our childhood heroes. Now you can unlock the hero within with your own sword key! Each key is expertly detailed and inspired by your favorite stories, compatible with most houses, offices, apartments & more!” the company writes on its website.

Image credits: Hero’s Armory

While there’s a variety of keys used around the world, Hero’s Armory carries the two most common types: Kwikset & Schlage.

Image credits: Hero’s Armory

So those who are using different types of keys may be a little disappointed, although the company also offers a lot of different nerdy stuff that you may like, such as tie clips, bottle openers, USB drives, and many more.

People Are Having Birthday Parties In Quarantine And Here Are 30 Of The Funniest Pics

The coronavirus is a party pooper. People are trying to celebrate their birthdays, but social distancing won’t let them. No more hugs, no more kisses; all they get now are a few best wishes over the phone, and that’s it.

However, that doesn’t mean folks whose birthdays happened to correspond with the pandemic can’t treat themselves. Or cry about it. I mean, it’s their day, so they can do whatever the heck they want.

Trying to make the most of it, people are sharing photos of how they’re spending this grand occasion under lockdown, and Bored Panda has compiled some of the funniest ones to commemorate them as well. Hip hip hooray.

My Dad Found A Very Appropriate Card For My Cousin’s Birthday Today

TheJackalope21 Report

To all our Aries and Taurus readers who still want to have a fun get-together with friends and family, you can still do it. But in the virtual space. Create a Google Hangout, a Skype conference call, WhatsApp, Zoom, and FaceTime can also help to date with as many people as you wish. The best part is that they can still sing “Happy Birthday” to you and nobody will interfere with you blowing the candles. Remember, interaction is what gets us through social distancing, and we have all the tools to enjoy it.

For this year’s cake, prepare something homemade if you can’t order anything. What’s that, you don’t have any eggs or flour? You can find plenty of unique recipes on the internet.

LizInMS Report

You can have a good birthday party all by yourself, too. Little Jacey Rudd did. Well, kinda. The Texas girl was supposed to bowl and play arcade games as well as visit Legoland, but her party plans were canceled amid social distancing guidelines put in place for the coronavirus quarantine.

So, Jacey and her older sister decided to gather some dolls and have a blast with them instead. The girls and their new ‘friends’ ate a cake their mom picked up from the grocery store, and her grandmother cooked chicken. “[We also] let her spray the Lysol cans to show her how to clean,” mom Brittany Bush-Rudd told The New York Post. “She was so excited to hold the can like an adult.”

“It really made our whole family realize that life is about the small stuff,” Bush-Rudd added. “Everything we did wasn’t much, but she liked it anyway. A kid is thanking you for Lysol and a doll!”

Someone Imagines What Everything Would Look Like If It Had A Cat’s Face And The Result Is Funny Yet Disturbing (30 New Pics)

The creator of the Koty Vezde (Cats are Everywhere) Instagram page sees cats, well, everywhere. 29-year-old Galina Bugaevskaya from Moscow photoshops cat faces on various animals and things. It’s cute. It’s weird. It’s hilarious.

Galina told us that the idea to merge cats with everything else came to her a year and a bit ago. From 2k fans in October, since our previous article, Koty Vezde has grown in leaps and bounds and now boasts over 50.4k followers.

“After that very first article, almost the whole world found out about me—many more different articles appeared in different languages. I read them with pleasure, and the comments on them too—there were so many kind words!” Galina told Bored Panda.

She said that she was shocked at how quickly the number of people following her work on Instagram grew. “I’ve been running my page with 600 subscribers for a year, but there was such a stir! I did not believe it, reading all these articles, that this was really happening to me. I could not sit still and constantly checked the page—is this really happening? Already 4k followers, then 8k… 10k! At the moment, there are more than 50k.”

Galina is very happy that she receives wholesome and heartwarming messages from her fans, thanking her for making them smile and for making their day. She says she’s very moved by such comments. “I’ve always liked to make people laugh and bring them pleasant emotions, but I am very shy in real life. Therefore, I am very glad that people really like my work and it raises their spirits.”

The artist now spends more time on her hobby, working on new Photoshop edits every day.

Because Galina is now a Photoshop master, she wanted to share some of her wisdom with others, some of whom are just starting out. “You do not need to know Photoshop thoroughly to engage in creativity. In fact, you use only a few tools (each with its own methods) for creativity most often. Yes, gradually you discover new tools and ways when you work a lot with the program. But many are afraid to start studying Photoshop thinking that it is very difficult.”

“As for me, I actively use tools such as ‘finger’ and ‘stamp.’ It is also very useful to know color grading,” she said. “The easiest way to start is by doing something that interests you. Comics? Coloring? Drawing dragons or fantastic animals? Doing memes? If you simply force yourself to do what you do not like, nothing will work. It’s important to do what gives you pleasure.”

She added: “To find people who like your job is very motivating. It can be friends, some group on a social network, subscribers. Social approval inspires people to do more and try better. Yes, maybe not everyone will like your work. At first, it is very difficult to find your audience. But, hey! There are more than 7 billion of us! There’s definitely someone on Earth who will look at your work and say, ‘Yes, this dude is cool!'”

Galina told us about her plans in the near future. She plans to do some shops with famous Instagram cats. “People really like to see familiar faces with an unusual treatment. In addition, I am thinking of organizing a contest where the prizes will be my ‘mixes’ with the winners’ cats.”

This Photographer Captured A Rare Sight—Frozen Waves At Dream Lake, Colorado

The coronavirus has been occupying both the airwaves and our minds for the past several weeks. So, why not take a break from the stresses of the lockdown and focus our minds, even if for a moment, on things that await us once the quarantine period is over.

Eric Gross is a landscape photographer from Colorado, US who’s in search of unseen natural gems in North America and beyond. And so it happened that he stumbled upon a unique phenomenon that has since then mesmerized the world. Bored Panda reached out to Gross for an interview.

When we think we’ve seen it all in nature, another marvel makes its way to the internet

Back in February, Eric journeyed to Dream Lake in Colorado’s Rocky Mountain National Park. When he arrived that first morning, right before sunset, he saw at least a dozen other photographers wandering around, taking pictures. So he moved away to a more secluded part of the lake for a unique perspective.

“While much of the lake was simply bumpy, one small section near the shore actually had what looked like frozen waves with sharp edges, hard curves, and steep sides. I couldn’t explain what I was seeing, so while trying to imagine how ‘frozen waves’ could occur, I started shooting. And shooting, and shooting,” said Gross.

It wasn’t long until the photographer found a technique that gave a truly unique perspective. And so his first photograph taken of the frozen waves kept the excitement up for days to come.

His Instagram post of the ice waves described the unique moment as wind-swept waters frozen in time, visualized from a perspective that seems otherworldly due to the lake looking like a pool of liquid metal.

The ice wave phenomenon isn’t too rare, especially in the Rocky Mountain National Park, but it certainly provides a more unique contour compared to occurrences elsewhere. The world is yet to figure out what exactly plays a role in the formation of these ice waves, but there are two prevalent theories so far: [1] it is the result of the synergy of water, cold weather, and wind, or [2] drifting snow melting across the surface of the frozen lake and re-freezing into ice over time.

After his first expedition in February, Eric returned for more in March. Following his second photoshoot of the majestic lake and mountains, his photos began making headlines soon after posting. And you’ll be surprised to learn that such masterful photography actually has somewhat humble roots:

“In early 2014, I began doing copywriting work from home. By September, I had saved up enough to roadtrip, while continuing to work, across North America. Before that, I had randomly gotten two basic photography gigs and used the money to buy a basic DSLR camera kit.”

Eric continued: “When I started traveling, it quickly became apparent that I wanted to use the camera a lot, and started learning by doing. Once I began hitting some truly wondrous natural landscapes across the country, including my first national parks, my entire mindset shifted from traveling for adventure to traveling for natural landscapes and photography.”

You’ll also be surprised to hear that since leaving New Jersey back in 2014, Eric has lived in four states, stayed with every family member and high school friend he could think of all over the US, visited 30 national parks, and spent a total of roughly 34 months living in and out of his 1997 Toyota Camry, which he modified into a punnily named Campry in 2019, complete with a bed and storage. An adventurous life indeed!

When asked what was the most challenging part of photographing the lake, Eric, without hesitation, said: “Definitely the weather.”

“After that first bluebird February day gave me an image I loved, I knew I had to go back and try again with more planning. I tried to go for a sunset shoot the following week, but this location, being at 9,905 feet in elevation, battered me with over 40mph snow coming directly at me down the valley, even though it was not snowing at the trailhead at 9,400 feet.”

Believe it or not, he hiked up to Dream Lake twice, taking a meticulously planned approach the second time around

He continued: “I hiked the next morning, where again, it was sunny at the trailhead, but after the 1 mile trip to the lake, it was far too windy with nearly whiteout conditions to take any photographs. On my fourth and fifth trips, I was able to actually use my camera.”

Believe it or not, the challenges did not end there, as he also explained that the rocks under the lake were heating up fast because of the brutal sun at the nearly 10,000-foot elevation and melting the ice in some places, making it dangerous to tread on the lake.

“What I learned from this experience is that for most locations, there is simply no way to plan a foreground for an image. It requires going to the site and walking around, possibly for hours, to find something interesting enough to take up half the image. Even on the carved ice, I have dozens of images from different pockets that aren’t nearly as compelling as the best ones, which showed that moving just a few inches can have an enormous impact on the image’s foreground,” said Gross.

Lastly, we asked Eric about his plans for upcoming photographs and whether he has other unique shots prepared for his audience. He had this to say: “As some hype built around these images and the lake itself, it became apparent that an interesting foreground, combined with a beautiful landscape background, is my ultimate prize. As Covid-19 has shuttered some areas and effectively locked me out of some opportunities before winter ends, my plan now is to put my boots to the ground a lot more often, looking for the most interesting foregrounds, instead of focusing more on dramatic mountain peaks.”

Despite being challenged by the weather and the lake starting to melt, he managed to get the shot he wanted

He continued: “While I don’t yet have a timeline, I’ve begun creating a list of prior images from across North America that I want to retake with a more artistic eye in an attempt to take world-famous landscapes and create something truly original from them.”

People Are Melting Over These Videos Of Zoo Animals Seeing Each Other For The First Time


Face Mask

You’ve seen penguins roaming around the empty aquarium. Now get ready for… more animals! At the moment, pretty much every company and organization has closed down due to the quarantine and zoos, together with aquariums, are no exception. While the facilities might not be open to the public, their caretakers still take time to share bits and pieces of the animals’ daily lives on social media, putting a smile on our faces.

One of the most fun activities for people to watch, as it appears, is the meet-ups of animals that live in the zoo territory. Just recently, one such adorable meet-up of a sea lion and a tegu went viral. The natural and adorable confusion seen on the sea puppy’s face was enough for the video to be shared over 16k times. Therefore, we, the people at Bored Panda, decided to look for more of this kind of footage and share it with you. So scroll down below to see the cuteness we found and get ready for your heart to melt!

Recently, a video of a confused sea lion meeting up with a tegu went viral

The video became extremely popular online after one illustrator shared it on his Twitter. “Pray for the zoo animals in this time of crisis,” he wrote in his now-viral tweet. “I mean, they’re getting really well taken care of, but they’re also living through an era of zookeepers saying, ‘Y’know what? F**k it, let’s just show them each other!’”

Watch the video of the “staring game” below

“When you got no game at the ‘staring game’ but your animal enrichment is on point,” Mystic Aquarium, that’s based in Mystic, Connecticut, writes in its tweet caption.

Apparently, other zoos are letting their animals see each other during the lockdown as well

“Red river hog Sir Francis Bacon got the rare opportunity to visit other Zoo residents earlier today,” Cincinnati Zoo shares. “His care team took advantage of the Zoo being closed and took him on an extended walk in the Africa habitat. The meerkats were particularly curious about the unusual visitor.”

“Our Indian runner duck stopped by the Penguin Education Center this week”

Maryland Zoo also posted a video on their Twitter feed showing their beautiful Indian runner duck stopping by to look at the penguins in the aquarium.

And they are sharing the videos of the meetings on social media

San Diego Zoo was also among the ones to show different animal species interacting with each other. This Californian zoo took a “coati cutie” to meet a gorilla, who really seemed to be interested in the little animal.

Much to people’s delight

Shedd Aquarium⁠—an aquarium located in Chicago, Illinois⁠—captured and shared an adorable video of a Magellanic penguin, Monte, exploring the aquarium and inspecting his penguin friends in the water.

The zoos are hoping to offer people some much-needed relaxation from being bombarded by news on the coronavirus

Many zoos and aquariums are now offering people the chance to tune in to their live streams, as well

“The main thing is, we want to not lose contact with the incredible base we’ve got, nearly 30,000 family members here in Dallas,” Gregg Hudson, the Dallas Zoo’s president and chief executive, told New York Times. “We know there’s probably a lot of families at home, and we hope to offer a respite from other news that’s bombarding people.” Since the lockdown due to coronavirus, the Dallas Zoo has begun sharing behind-the-scenes footage and educational videos on Twitter, using the hashtag #BringTheZooToYou, hoping to distract people for a while from the ongoing crisis.

But Dallas Zoo is not the only one offering a sneak peek at animals’ daily routines and cute meetups. If you’re feeling a bit blue lately, tune in to the animal live streams that some zoos are offering. One of these is Cincinnati Zoo, while Shedd Aquarium is also sharing soothing live streams from underwater. Tropical Reef Aquarium in Long Beach California also offers a chance to relax while looking at the colorful fish swimming among coral and on the official webpage of Kansas City Zoo, you can choose from a variety of cameras from which to watch the animals!
