Vintage Toys From Your Childhood

The one thing no one ever tells you about becoming an adult is that you can finally buy your own toys. Remember that Easy-Bake Oven you always wanted but never got because Mom was afraid you'd burn down the house? Now it can be yours.

The same goes for the Rubik's Cube, Rock'em Sock'em Robots, and nearly any popular toy from the 60s, 70s and 80s that you've been coveting since childhood. Some of these toys were previously only available in their original incarnations on auction sites or at yard sales. But nostalgia is a strong selling point, so manufacturers have brought them back. | By Victor Paul Alvarez

    • Yes, California's drought is all but over, and the dramatically revived Cachuma Lake proves it

      Heading into February, things were looking grim here in the rugged hills north of Santa Barbara. While much of California was emerging from five years of drought, this giant reservoir had dwindled to a weedy channel at just 7% of capacity and was perilously close to being written off as a regional water supply. And then the rains came in unrelenting horizontal sheets. It was one of the largest storms in memory over the Santa Ynez Valley on Feb. 17, swamping historical records and causing the lake to rise a whopping 31 feet in depth in just a few days. It “slammed us with intense sideways rain,” recalled Beverly Keller, manager of the Cachuma Lake General Store. “Falling on the roof of my mobile

    • Man's wife vanished on a cruise. He told no one

      (NEWSER) – Daniel Belling, his wife, and their two children set off on an 11-day Mediterranean cruise on Feb. 9. Only three of them boarded a flight back to Dublin—or tried to. The 45-year-old German native was stopped for questioning at Rome's Ciampino Airport on Tuesday in connection with the apparent disappearance of his wife, Li Yinglei, and taken into custody. He has not been charged, but a judge ruled Friday that he must remain in jail until prosecutors make a decision, reports the Irish Times. The Irish Independent reports the family boarded the luxury Magnifica cruise ship in Civitavecchia, Italy, and records show Li reboarded the ship on the 10th after it docked in Genoa. After that,

    • The internet has some crazy theories about what Ryan Gosling whispered to this woman

      When Jimmy Kimmel brought out a bunch of tourists from a bus to the Oscars to help themselves to celebrities' personal belongings, there was one standout couple — Gary from Chicago and his fiancee, Vicky.  Ryan Gosling, sensing the cameras love the duo, leans in for a Lost in Translation moment to whisper something either sacred or profane in Vicky's ear. Now we have the great mystery of Oscars 2017.  So what is it? Perhaps he says, "You're welcome for saving jazz."  Maybe he whispers, "Hey girl, I just figured this out. It's pretty cool. La La Land means..." Gosling takes a dramatic pause. "It's Los Angeles." SEE ALSO: Jimmy Kimmel's joke sounded better when women did it first

    • This one tweet explains that truly bizarre Oscars Best Picture mixup perfectly

      In what is certainly the weirdest moment in Oscars history, the incorrect Best Picture winner was announced on stage to finish off the 89th Academy Awards. Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway first announced La La Land as the big winner of the night. The cast and crew walked onstage and began to make their speeches, only to be stopped halfway through — the correct winner was actually Moonlight. Comedian Jackie Jennings quickly pointed out a perfect explanation for the bizarre mistake. WAIT BUT THIS IS ACTUALLY THE REAL END OF LA LA LAND AND ITS GREAT #Oscars — Jackie Jennings (@ohhijackie) February 27, 2017 La La Land' s depressing dream sequence finale was oddly similar to the ending of the Oscars. The Oscars ended exactly like La La Land did. La La Land is the Oscars. The Oscars are La La Land .
