    After modifying his face for seven long years, 26-year-old Russian Jenya Bolotov has finally fulfilled his life’s ambition of becoming a human platypus. He has managed to stretch eight parts of his face by a total of nine inches – including his ear lobes, nostrils, septum and his top and bottom lip. “I love platypus – the way they look and even the word ‘platypus’ itself,” he explained. “I like the way my stretched face and lips now look like a platypus bill.” Jenya added that all the modifications now make him feel whole, and this is what he’s always wanted to be…

    The Boulder, Colorado-based artist spends long and lonely meditative hours in the woods, finding stones large and small, and placing them at seemingly impossible rest atop their pointed end. The result is utterly amazing balance between stillness and motion. According to Michael, “Alongside the art, setting rocks into balance has also become a way of showing appreciation, offering thanksgiving, and inducing meditation.” Check out his website and Facebook for more incredible pictures. – via visualnews.com, Part 2.

    (YouTube link)If they made a movie about Black Friday shopping, of course it would be a horror film. By this point, I’m starting to believe that Black Friday sales are a tradition people only participate in to create news stories and viral videos.

I’d personally rather buy something that the receiver needs or wants. That’s completely opposite my philosophy for buying groceries. This movie parody…

    Writes Joanna in Pennsylvania: “Following (apparently) more than one incident in which a customer “relieved” themselves in the stand up tanning booths in my town, this signage was posted in every tanning booth. Because, ya know, people need to be reminded to not just randomly crap themselves every time they get naked.” Adds Joanna: ” Yes, I asked an employee and the incidents in question involved #2!” If it makes you feel any better, Joanna, it turns out your problem is far from unique to south central PA.   related: On preparing a hide for tanning

Shortage of an important element that is considered a blight in water supply: Calcium. Too much calcium plus dissolved minerals produce hard water, which is often a curse for a lot of cities. This is because, aside from preventing soap suds from forming and damaging boilers, magnesium ions and calcium give water a rather unpleasant taste. Today, however, Canadian Lakes are being studied for exhibiting the opposite problem: lake waters being too low in calcium. The Holopedium…

Books and paintings have documented history far further back, but there’s nothing like a photo to give you the sense that you’re looking at something real. A photo can still misdirect the viewer, but it’s still more faithful than a painting or book.

While the cashier was distracted by the sight, she grabbed the money and ran. This brilliant new crime technique should win her a place in history, as it leaves male shopkeepers totally stunned but does them no physical harm.  They may even quite like it, to be honest. “The tricky thing is to decide whether we should now classify…

    My teachers always told my parents: “Er, he’s probably a late developer.” Years later, I’m beginning to ask how late is late, exactly?             Could it kindly be THIS side of the after-life, please? Don’t you just hate people who seem destined for early success?             Reader Anita Chau sent me a report about pregnant UK woman Amanda Collins who entered an ultrasound scan of HER FETUS into a baby beauty contest.             Contest officials accepted the entry, although waited until after birth to give the baby her prize certificate.  …

    I HAD A teacher who used to wake us up by shouting: “The early bird gets the worm.”                   Let him have the worm.                   I hate food that doesn’t stay still on your plate.                   Besides, I stopped eating worms at the age of three, switching to regular breakfasts of frosted cereal, to which I would add extra sugar until it was really just a bowl of white granules.                   Once I just poured milk into the sugar bowl.                   My parents were horrified,…
  • 10 dangerous myths about the Hong Kong protests

    Mr Jam
    2 Nov 2014 | 6:16 pm
    Myth 1: Business has ground to a halt. “I don't think organizing something that shuts down business is positive for Hong Kong,” lamented John Slosar, multi-millionaire chairman of Swire. Not true. More than 1,255,896 registered companies operate in Hong Kong. Only a handful have closed down. More new ones have opened than have closed. Myth 2: “The Occupy Central protests are illegal,” thunders China official Li Yuanchao. Not true. In free, economically growing societies, non-violent protests, even if they are disruptive, are a protected form of criticism.  Only in controlled,…

    Your narrator met an old friend while practicing for a triathlon the other day. That is, he was practicing for a triathlon. I'd just taken a taxi to the shop for a second box of doughnuts. Now that doesn't mean I'm unhealthy, oh no. I once managed to separate two supermarket trolleys WITH MY BARE HANDS, and as everyone knows, staff weld those things together every night to torment shoppers.  Exercise is bad for your health. Proof comes in the shape of a news report a reader forwarded to me about the recent New Delhi marathon. Organizers forgot to put signs at the point where…

    21 Nov 2014 | 1:03 am
    During the 16th and 17th century, particularly around the time of the Safavid reign, the Iranian folks built a large number of towers to house pigeons. The pigeons were domesticated not for their meat (pigeon is especially revered in Islam), but rather for their droppings, which the locals collected and used to fertilize melon and cucumber fields. The Safavids had a particular liking for melons and consumed them in staggering numbers. Pigeon dung was thought to be the best manure for these crops, and the towers were built for the purpose of attracting pigeons to them so that they would nest…

    When a car owner has a junk car or salvage title car to get rid of, they may find that doing so is not as easy as first thought. That’s because various jurisdictions and municipalities have rules and regulations about how junk cars can be disposed of. Ideally, finding a buyer is the best situation because the purchasing party essentially takes on the responsibility of what to do with the vehicle. However, most used car buyers prefer a car that is running and can move on its own. Cars that have serious mechanical issues or just a junk frame missing key parts are normally passed over.
