    They’re literal interpretations of rock band names in icon form and they’re done by design studio Tata&Friends. That’s a pretty dumb name for a design studio, but these icon sets are pretty cool nonetheless. Although they suck as a band, The Sex Pistols have the funniest icon. Yeah, I said it.

Maybe that’s why there are so many myths about sex, because we can’t even talk about it without making mistakes. For example, people tend to think that once they couple up they’ll, well, couple up every day. Actually, most couples only do it a couple times a week or even a month.

    Listen to this episodeStaple though it is today, the lowly potato had a hard time reaching its preeminent status in Western cuisine. Perhaps its lengthy purgatory has something to do with the tale that when Sir Walter Raleigh gave some potatoes to Queen Elizabeth, her cooks tossed aside the roots and served up the boiled greens instead, causing a court-wide case of indigestion. Whether that's the case or not—and there's no evidence that Raleigh ever so much as set eyes on a potato—for decades Europeans would have nothing to do with the tuber.

Water seeps from these moistened acres and coalesces into the headwaters of a river which meanders through the countryside for nearly 22 miles until its terminus in Glasgow. In the late 19th century this river adorned the landscape just outside of the laboratory of Sir William Thompson, renowned scientist and president of the Royal Society. The river must have made an impression on Thompson--when Queen Victoria granted him the title of Baron in 1892, he opted to adopt the river’s name as his own. Sir…

    South Korean plastic surgeons are among the best in the world. In fact they’re so good that people from other countries like China and Japan are actually having trouble getting back home. That’s sounds really crazy, but it’s true. When most people get a nose job or a lip job, they just look like ‘enhanced’ versions of themselves. But people returning from a plastic surgery vacation in South Korea are truly transformed. You’d have to look very closely at the ‘before’ and ‘after’ photographs, and even then, it’s hard to make a connection. So I suppose you couldn’t really…

They weave the twigs together with little pieces of metallic wire that strengthen the nest structure. In some nests, the clever…

    As though they weren’t bad enough at their normal size, we now have rats that are bigger than cats. Oh, the horror! Several ‘ratzilla’ stories have been in the news recently, featuring shockingly massive rats. I wouldn’t blame you for wondering if these pictures are Photoshopped, but they’re not – the supersize rats look like they’ve been loading up on steroids or something. These ‘pumped’ rats have infested several countries around the world and are quickly becoming a huge menace to humans. A series of ratzilla-sightings have been reported across the UK, the largest one…
  • Team Fighting Championship – The Crazy Violent Sport Sweeping Europe

    Here’s a real treat for all you MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) fans. It’s called Team Fighting Championship, and it’s played using standard MMA rules, sort of. The sport involves two teams of five members, who basically have a go at each other in a big ring as soon as the referee blows his whistle. The MMA-style fights usually start as one-on-one, with each member singling out an opponent, but as competitors are forced to tap out of the fight, contests can become two-on-one, or even five-on-one. A video clip of a Team Fighting Championship (TFC) match has been doing the rounds on the…

    “The Tongariro National Park was New Zealand’s first national park as well as one of the earliest in the world. If you have time to spare, the Tongariro Northern Circuit is one of New Zealand’s ”5 Great Walks” and is a stunning 5 day hike around and through the volcanic massif. A shorter alternative would be the Tongariro Alpine Crossing, which is an equally breathtaking 1 day hike between Tongariro and Ngauruhoe up to the famous green emerald lakes (the name is well deserved). Just be aware that although this is a relatively easy hike, it is still some 20 km long and quite…

    17 Apr 2014 | 11:08 pm
    Hot Water Beach is a popular beach and geothermal attraction located on the east coast of the Coromandel Peninsula in New Zealand, approximately 12 kilometers southeast of Whitianga. Between low and high tides, warm water from two underground hot springs rises up through the sand, and by scooping a shallow hole in the sand, you can create a small pool of warm water to lie on. The phenomenon occurs only at low to mid-tide when the water is low to expose the area of sand with hot water underneath. Two hours before and after low tide is the best time to go. During peak season, hundreds of people…
  • The Pseudocraters of Iceland

    Kaushik
    17 Apr 2014 | 3:03 am
    A pseudocrater looks like a true volcanic crater, but is not. These distinctive landforms are created when flowing hot lava crosses over a wet surface, such as a swamp, a lake, or a pond causing an explosion of steam through the lava. The explosive gases break through the lava surface in a manner similar to a phreatic eruption, and flying debris builds up crater-like feature which can appear very similar to real volcanic craters. Pseudocraters are also known as rootless cones, since they are characterized by the absence of any magma conduit which connects below the surface of the earth. A…

In this sprawling slum on the waterfront, adjacent to the 10 km long Third Mainland Bridge, tens of thousands of people live in rickety wood houses raised on slits.

The plutonium device, called the Gadget, was hoisted atop a 100-foot tower and detonated at precisely 5:30 am releasing energy equivalent to 18.6 kilotons of TNT, instantly vaporizing the tower and fusing the desert sand into green glass. The shock wave was felt over 160 km away, and windows still rattled 320 km away. The success of the Trinity test meant that an atomic bomb could be readied…

    Kawah Ijen is one of several volcanoes located within the 20 km wide Ijen Caldera in East Java, Indonesia. The caldera of Kawah Ijen harbors a kilometer-wide, turquoise colored, acidic crater lake that leaks sulphurous gases constantly. At night the hot gases burn to emit an eerie blue glow that is unique to Kawah Ijen. The gases emerge from the cracks in the volcano at high pressure and temperature, up to 600°C, and when they come in contact with the air, they ignite, sending flames up to 16 feet high. Some of the gases condense into liquid sulfur, and continues to burn as it flows down the…

If indeed this was a genuine attempt by the author to imagine what the future of fashion might look like, it’s interesting to see how far off the mark he was.

This intricate object is a “Teleseme,” made by New York’s Herzog Teleseme Company and used in Paris’ Élysée Palace Hotel in the 1890s. The Teleseme was designed so that hotel guests could inform staff of a overwhelming array of wants and needs, without ever speaking with a person. Instructions asked guests to move the pointer, which could be collapsed and extended, to the square that represented their desire (“wine list,” “my maid,” “lemon squash”), and then push the button at the bottom.
