    This is a collection of natural history museum inspired wallpapers from French companies NeoDKo and Deyrolle. Do people still put up wallpaper? I have no clue. I do still hang old movie and glow-in-the-dark mushroom posters to cover the holes I've put in my walls though. Cl... / Continue →

    This is a time-lapse video of an Egyptian statuette of Osiris, the god of death, slowly rotating 180-degrees in its locked display case over the course of several days. Some people are convinced there's a ancient curse involved, but those people are idiots. Clearly this is th... / Continue →

    This is the 20-foot long (it looks longer to me but I've ridden real dinosaurs though so I should know) balloon animal Acrocanthosaurus built by balloon-twisting professional (and awesome dude to have at a kid's birthday party) Larry Moss and his team at Airigami for Virginia's... / Continue →

    This is a collaboration piece between Vincent Van Gogh and DeviantARTist SirNosh featuring Pac-Man and some ghosts running amok in Van Gogh's 'Starry Night'. Now I'm not saying throwing some video game characters into classic paintings would be a great way to get kids interest... / Continue →

    Inb4 what's a dong lut? Note: Spending President's Day at doctor's appointments, back tomorrow FULL BLAST. I've actually known about Don Glut's dinosaur museum for awhile but wasn't willing to share because, well, now that io9.com CAN'T KEEP A SECRET, his server are forever c... / Continue →

    I know you're not supposed to speak ill of the dead for fear of their ghosts pouring laxatives in your chocolate milk powder while you sleep (I KNOW IT WAS YOU, CASPER!), but damn, for a guy whose body turned to soap after he was buried you look pretty f***ing dirty. Just sayi... / Continue →

    Ever wonder what a racetrack large enough to have 1,200 Hot Wheels running around at the same time would look like? This. Also, please please please start wondering bigger. I dunno, about naked women or something, you're depressing me. Wondering about giant Hot Wheels track... / Continue →

    Apparently this is old but I don't care because it's the first time I've seen it and if you've seen it before then maybe YOU should have sent it to me earlier. That's right, YOU'RE the one to blame here. Jerk. Anyway, this behemoth was created entirely out of bent coat hange... / Continue →

    Some BBC employee allegedly took a picture of a ghost at a museum in England. This is the picture, and, quite frankly, I just don't see it. Unless it's an Arab smoking a hookah with a hand down his pants. That I can see. Mr Sandys, 30, was photographing at the reputedly hau... / Continue →

    The Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County has a new exhibit in which children (and those of us that refuse to grow up) can interact with living dinosaurs. And by living dinosaurs, I obviously mean a guy dressed up in a costume. Speaking of which, were any of you inappr... / Continue →

    STAN was a Tyrannosaurus Rex that lived over 65 million years ago. In his heyday he probably banged tons of other dinosaurs, and, quite possibly, a woolly mammoth or two. But now he ain't banging shit but the wall at the Black Hills Museum of Natural History in South Dakota. ... / Continue →

    Okay so I've been sitting here playing Bomberman on FireNES and pretending those sick, sick women were the enemies in the game. It wasn't working so I went outside and cut down one of my asshole neighbor's trees. Now I'm feeling a little better, but not much. I figured I'd t... / Continue →
