Would You Eat These Chocolate-Filled Cat Marshmallows?

So we've already seen cat-carrying backpacks and cat-scented fabric spray, so should we be surprised at all that there are - once again, from Japan! - strangely lifelike chocolate-filled cat marshmallows out there?
Called 'Nyarshmallows' (part-nyan, part-marshmallow - obviously), these puffy 3-D kittens are perfectly squeezable, perfectly decorated to match your favorite IRL feline, and also perfectly suited to melt in a mug of hot cocoa - but that's neither here nor there.

LOOK HOW SQUISHABLE THEIR GELATINOUS LITTLE CAT FACES ARE!

According to Felissimo's product description, Nyarshmallows are the perfect gift for any cat lover. They add that it's perfect for non-cat lovers too -as just because you don't have a soul, it doesn't mean you can't enjoy fluffy, sweet marshmallows.
Nyarshmallows are available in a box of 12 for about ¥2,585 (roughly $21 USD), which might be a steep price to pay, but considering each marshmallow is individually crafted by hand, hey, maybe you can save this one for a 'Treat yo'self!' moment?

Anyway, would you buy these cat marshmallows, or are they a rip-off? And am I the only one curious as to how big these suckers get in a microwave?

Anyway, let me know in the comments below, and for more strange Internet finds that you didn't know you wanted until now, follow my SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY collection.

Make A Fist. Then Read This Card.
So I just learned about something cool today called Kobushi Shindan. Have any of you heard about it? Kobushi Shindan (literally, 'fist analysis' in Japanese) is an ancient samurai personality test. All you need to do to take it is make a fist! So make a fist, any fist, and find out what your personal fist form says about you! Fist #1: Your thumb rests on your index finger. People with this fist shape tend to be natural leaders. You like helping others and, likewise, appreciate being leaned on for support. However, despite a strong exterior, you have the tendency to be a bit insecure. In relationships, you are extremely devoted and expect that same kind of loyalty in return. You put others before yourself, and since you're not necessarily good at words, you put that love into compassionate action. Fist #2: Your thumb rests in the middle of your fist. You're a free-spirit with a wide range of talents and plenty of friends. However, you tend to be afraid to try new things because you fear failure. And despite the fact you have a wide group of friends, the amount of friends you consider close is considerably smaller. In love, that fear of failure makes it hard for you to begin romantic relationships, but because of your kind and sociable nature, you're a pretty attractable potential mate! Fist #3: You tuck your thumb underneath fingers. You're much more introverted than the other two personality types. You're a sensitive and private person, and while you don't have a huge social network, the few friends you do have are extremely close and loyal to you. You hate conflict and tend to internalize your feelings, but your compromising nature makes you very attentive in your romantic relationships, which tends to make them pretty long-term. So which fist did you guys get? Do you think Kobushi Shindan has got you all figured out, or are there some things you disagree with?
Want to Get Fit? Here Are the Most Expensive and the Cheapest Sources of Protein
Getting fit is a common goal for many people, but achieving it often proves to be quite hard. Although regular exercise, calorie deficits and eating a lot of protein are three of the most important rules to get fit, sticking to a strict diet and exercise regimen can test one's willpower very much. Further, since high-quality gyms can sometimes cost a couple of thousand rupees or more per month, a fitness plan can be fairly expensive. Saving on a gym membership could be straightforward, as one can simply choose to work out at home, outside or switch to budget-friendly facilities, which can cost under Rs. 1,000 per month. Regarding protein consumption, many online articles only highlight foods which have "high levels of protein" irrespective of their cost. So, to help people find the most financially-friendly sources of protein, we analysed the most popular ones in terms of their cost per 100 grams of protein. Meat, Fish, Yogurt and Certain Cheeses Are Expensive As one would expect, certain sources of protein are significantly more expensive than others. As an example, greek yogurt has gotten quite popular recently as a healthy food. In fact, it's a good source of protein, calcium and probiotics. It also helps one feel full for a relatively small amount of calories. But, it's actually a fairly expensive source of protein, costing more than Rs. 500 per 100 grams of protein. For instance, a 90g container of low-fat Epigamia Greek Yogurt costs Rs. 40 on BigBasket. This product contains approximately 7.4 grams of protein, netting an effective cost of Rs. 541 per 100 grams of protein. Above all, we found swiss cheese to be incredibly expensive for the protein one gets out of it. Steak and fish are very expensive too. These tend to be higher in fat and calories, so they may be better to avoid if one is also dieting. Not All Seeds and Grains Are Made Equal Seeds and grains such as almonds or quinoa are often a part of suggested diet food lists. However, such foods tend to vary dramatically in price. We found hemp seeds and almonds cost around Rs. 500 - 700 per 100 grams of protein, while chickpeas and oats cost under Rs. 200 for the same amount of this muscle-building nutrient. If one wants to maximise the amount of protein while minimising cost, pick specific nuts with care and go for something like sunflower seeds rather than almonds. Surprising Winners Most of the winners on this list are pretty obvious: tofu, chicken breast and eggs have commonly been known to be some of the most popular effective protein sources that also help you feel full. So, it's not a surprise that they are some of the cheaper options. One of the items on the winner list was somewhat surprising: peanut butter. It only costs Rs. 167 for 100 grams of protein. However, peanut butter is relatively high in fat and sugar, so it shouldn't be heavily relied on for building lean muscle mass and reducing belly fat. Staying Healthy Physically & Financially If one wants to get into better physical shape, it requires a deliberate commitment to change one's lifestyle, increasing the frequency and intensity of one's workouts while also strictly regimenting one's diet. Just pumping out sets at the gym won't provide the desired results if one isn't following a well-structured exercise routine and using proper form. It's also important to control one's diet properly so that one consumes a wide variety of nutrients. Worrying solely about protein and calories can be counterproductive and cause ailments. Focusing on certain financial aspects related to getting into better physical shape will make the whole process easier on one's bank account. For example, as we have done here, researching the most cost-effective sources of protein can help one efficiently build muscles while also helping one save money. There are several other aspects related to one's health that could potentially result in cost savings, too. For instance, one could use a rewards credit card to pay for gym memberships or groceries, which could offset the total economic cost. Further, it's possible one may be overpaying for health insurance if one simply took the advice of a salesperson without researching other viable options. Properly researching different endeavours in life will help one focus on what is most important and effective, while weeding out sources of inefficiencies that impede reaching your goals.

Would You Buy This Raptor Egg Candle?
My sister appreciates a good candle. She's the kind of person that spends a concerning amount of money at Yankee Candle and an equally concerning amount of time hanging out in the candle section of any given department store, holding candles like Sugar Cookies, Summer Rain, or Fresh Lavender to her nose like a trained connoisseur in all things home fragrance. Because I'm the younger sister, and well, younger siblings naturally like to despise everything their older ones are into, I'm not really big on the whole scented candle thing. However, if you were looking to buy me a candle this Christmas, this mystery dinosaur egg is totally more my speed. Yes, this egg-shaped candle - created by Firebox, the same novelty gift manufacturer that brought you Unicorn Tears-flavored gin - might look pretty unassuming when you first take a look at it, but after you've let the candle burn for a bit, quite a magical thing starts to happen. "Say hello to my little fren..." As the wax melts away, a porcelain velociraptor reveals itself, an ornament that you can keep once you're done burning the candle. (Yes, that's right. You get a raptor that - according to the website - is "ready to train to do your bidding". What do you get when you're done burning that White Musk candle? Nothing. Not even one dinosaur.) If you're ready to take on the task of recreating the weirdest (but secretly coolest) scene from the original 'Jurassic Park' in super super slow motion, you can purchase the candle here (where it's around $45 because it's apparently too awesome to be reasonably priced). Would you buy this dinosaur egg candle? Or will you wait it out and hope whoever invents the first time machine brings you a real one someday?

For help, check out the Content Guideline!) - In the future Presidents will have the ability to create Labels, which can organize content into specific groups. For an example, check out the Labels in Japanese Anime. - Presidents will make sure the community remains a safe place for all members, by keeping an eye out for disagreements or problems between members. - In the future Presidents will have the ability to enlist the help of other members for roles such as Editor in Chief, Whiz, Host, and more!

As an example, you can check out VingleEnglish who is the president of the Kpop community and Funny Community.
