    This are two photos taken by Coloradan Cathy Hartt earlier this May. By the way, a Coloradan is somebody from Colorado (just in case you failed geography and thought people from Colorado were called mountain folk -- those are West Virginians). Anyway, Cathy took these picture... / Continue →

    This is a short video of Redditor LivingOaks' mom's eyeball. It has a naturally occuring blood vessel that spells love in cursive. Although personally I think it actually spells lovem. Still, I'm jealous the blood vessels in my eyes don't spell anything. Maybe if I pop a fe... / Continue →

    This is In Orbit, a hamster wheel 'house' with two sets of furniture (one for inside the wheel, one for out) that can be rotated by its two occupants walking simultaneously in opposite direction to access the various pieces of furniture. The wheel is aligned so both use identi... / Continue →

    I wasn't going to post this because I assume a lot of you have already seen it, but I'm afraid I'm not going to stop getting the tip until I do (and then only half as much), so here it is. Created by David Lewandowski, 'Late For Meeting' is an animation of a weird walking mann... / Continue →

    This is an olinguito (oh-lin-GHEE-toe), a species of carnivorous mammal that has been known to exist for over 100 years, but was only recently scientifically documented and classified. That's weird. Maybe not as weird as where all the dried blood under my fingernails came fro... / Continue →

    Put it in her mouth! You know what helps keep your skin young and healthy looking? Keeping it moisturized and not baking yourself in the sun all the time. Also, $243/hour snail facials. Or at least a growing trend in Japan would have you believe so. Me? I'm smart enough t... / Continue →

    This is a cross section of a colony of Pyura chilensis, a brainless filter feeding organism found in shallow waters off the coasts of Chile and Peru. They resemble squiggly rocks made out of cooked ground beef with nasty guts inside. Do people eat them raw? DAMN YEAH PEOPLE ... / Continue →

    Ever wanted to play Pac-Man in the style of a first person shooter? Well tear your shirt off and start waving it around like you're at a Kid Rock concert, because this is your lucky day. 'FPS-Man' was created by game designer Tom Davies and available for free play over at Kon... / Continue →

    These are two animal skulls with little clay Super Mario levels recreated on top by artist Tobias Wüstefeld for the We Love 8-Bit art show in Vienna, Austria. Why animal skulls? NO F***ING CLUE. It's art though, so it doesn't have to make sense. Personally, I think the scen... / Continue →

    This is a shot of a tree that got all its bark zapped off in a lightning storm. Now it's just standing there all butt-ass naked. Will it survive? A quick Google search for "can a tree survive without bark?" proved inconclusive, and that's as far as my investigative reporting... / Continue →

    This is Skywhale, a giant hot air balloon created by artist Patricia Piccinin for the Australian National Gallery. Now that's some fine art if I've ever seen it and I've been on over a dozen museum field trips. Plus we went to Gettysburg once but that was less fine art and mo... / Continue →

    This is a shot of a trendy hairstyle in Japan that makes your head look like a tomato. Like, this seriously isn't the only chick who's ever gotten it. There's even a NAME for it. Names make things real. *turns off lights in bathroom* Bloody Mary, Bloody Mary, Bloody Mary! ... / Continue →

    This is a series of miniature furniture pieces made out of fake human skin by artist Jessica Harrison. Why? No clue, but the loveseat looks like it was made from the skin around an @$$hole. A buttloveseat. I would totally curl up and nap on that. Hit the jump for three mor... / Continue →

    This is the Good Vibrations cabinet designed by Ferruccio Laviani. It's a real, impressively hand-carved storage unit created to look like a glitched tv or computer screen. It hurts my eyes, and not in a good way like rubbing them really hard when I'm stressed. This is defin... / Continue →

    This is Sam. Sam is an all white cat with a black tail and eyebrows. Sure they're not very good looking brows, but what did you expect from a cat? They're the kind of eyebrows you'd expect to see on a girl who's plucked hers to the point they're not there anymore and has to ... / Continue →

    There is absolutely no way I could get a pee-stream started in there. This is an old installation piece in London by artist Monica Bonvicini called 'Don't Miss A Sec'. It featuring a public restroom in the middle of a busy sidewalk that's constructed entirely of 1-way mirrors... / Continue →

    This is the Fliz bike. Unlike traditional bikes, it doesn't have pedals. You hang suspended from the frame above and run. Or walk. Or speed down steep hills pretending you're Superman. I'm a bird, I'm a plane, I'm going to die. I have no clue if the bike is even practical... / Continue →

    Japanese medical 3-D printing firm Fasotec has teamed up with Parkside Hiroo Ladies Clinic to offer 3-D printed versions of patients' baby fetuses based on an MRI scan. And all for the low, low price of $1,200. Will insurance cover that? No. Will girls post pictures of 3-D ... / Continue →

    These are some Batman themed fingernails by DeviantARTist KayleighOC. As you can see, all the fingers look like little Batman heads and the thumb has a big ol' Batman logo. They kinda remind me of the time I tried growing my nails out for as long as I could as an exercise in ... / Continue →

    2012 Thumb-Wresting World Champion -- I'm calling it. This is James Byrne. PSYCHE -- it's just his hands. James lost his left thumb in a carpentry accident, and, after a botched attempt to reattach it, had it replaced with a big toe and NOT a lucky rabbit's foot despite that... / Continue →
