  • Art Takes Over Real Life

    John Farrier
    27 May 2015 | 3:00 pm
    Lorenzo Castellini calls his series Art Lies. It's all about "great masters having great times." The subjects of famous paintings, such as Picasso's The Young Ladies of Avignon, invade real life, which is the only place where they can relax and party. Castellini made his images by carefully cutting out paper copies of people and objects in these classic paintings, then juxtaposing them over people that he meets in public. The resulting photographic collages can be both funny and alarming.-via Design Boom

    A Pox On The Phony King Of England by ClayGrahamArtRobin had started a revolution, revealing that the tyrant Prince John was nothing but a cowardly lion beneath all the pomp and posh robes. And yet they called Robin a hood, denounced him as nothing but a punk and a squatter living unlawfully on the king's land, but the people of Nottingham knew better. They knew a scoundrel when they saw one, and with Sir Hiss as his advisor the people were even more wary of the Prince's treachery.

    When is an email to your subscribers not simply an email to your subscribers? When it’s a platform for your other social media activity to better engage, inform and entertain your readers, that’s when. Many of you are active on Pinterest and Instagram, curating and creating engaging and persuasive graphics and photos. But most of you are not including those photos in your email updates to your subscribers, and that means you’re missing out on opportunities to broaden your email audience’s experience with your brand, as well as delivering a more interesting mailing.

    Yesterday, in a 2/1 split decision, a three judge motions panel of the 5th circuit appeals court refused to lift the injunction placed on President Obama’s immigration executive actions last February by Texas Judge Andrew Hanen. Hanen’s order temporarily blocked the implementation of DACA expansion and DAPA, which offer an estimated 5 million undocumented DREAMers and parents a chance to apply for a brief temporary reprieve from deportation.  The Obama administration had asked the 5th circuit panel to temporarily lift the injunction while the court heard the full…

They are so beautiful that many little girls have dreamt of growing up to look like their favorite dolls. But those young girls outgrew that dream and went on to live normal lives. For some though, they made it their goal in life to look exactly the most famous doll of all time. One of them is Ukrainian model Valeria Lukyanova. Valeria has spent considerable amounts of money and too much effort into looking like a live Barbie doll. Today, she is dubbed the…

    Okay, so there roughly is about a hundred or more weird and disturbing books out there, and probably as plentiful as weird films and videos. So here we are for part two of the weirdest books series. If you were not moved to read one of the books in part one, perhaps you will find your pick in this list. Do-It-Yourself Coffins for Pets and People By Dale Power Here is a guide to making your very own coffin, and although it is for both pets and people, we simply cannot ignore the eerie fact of building caskets.

    5 May 2015 | 10:27 pm
    It takes guts and a good idea to come up with a good book, but some writers have successfully released these very interesting books. The only letdown is that these books are categorically weird, and because of that, the books may or may not be an entirely great read, so you be the judge. How to Dissappear Completely And Never Be Found By Doug Richmond Yes, the theme itself is absurd and obviously meant for those who want to get away from something, maybe a crime. What makes this book weirder is the misspelled title where the word “dissappear” that appears all caps seven times…
  • Abandoned Towns and Uninhabited Villages that Lure Tourists

    There is something about Machu Picchu that lures tourists in – its historical splendor and remarkable architecture. Machu Picchu was once a thriving empire, densely populated and teeming with life and abundance. Today, it is uninhabited but after its discovery many years ago, tourists flock to this mountaintop empire to admire its beauty. Here are other equally magnificent yet abandoned towns and villages, which are worth visiting. Craco, Italy A series of natural disasters like landslides, flooding and earthquake has rendered the once-prosperous town of Craco uninhabitable. But its…

    Good morning, all! Hopefully everyone had a fun and safe Memorial Day yesterday! I thought I’d share a fun mirror house illusion with you today… This is the Izabelin House, a two story structure in the middle of the forest. As you can see, it blends right in, with the help of a few mirrors. Okay, witht he help of a LOT of mirrors! From this angle, it looks like a room with no walls surrounding it. Like it’s sinking into another dimension. Definitely freaky! Now, let’s take a look at it from another angle… From this angle, it looks like the second story is just…
  • American Flag Illusion in the Sunset for Memorial Day

    CJ Edwards

    It’s Memorial Day here in the United States. For many, it’s a day that marks the official start of summer. A day for picnics and barbecues, family and friends. However, Memorial Day has a much deeper meaning. It’s a day to remember and honor the fallen soldiers who have fought and died protecting our freedom. A day to remember those that never made it home. For some, its a very bittersweet day and emotional day. The soldiers who made it home and the families the fallen soldiers left behind may spend at least part of today graveside or at war memorials, laying flowers and…

Today’s illusion fits perfectly with the summer fishing season. It’s a fun little fisherman optical illusion! So, let’s get right down to it. Can you find the fisherman in the optical illusion below?

    I don’t know if it’s just me, or what, but something seems a little off about this car… I can’t tell if it’s coming or going! When you first look at this car optical illusion, you immediately think that it’s parked at an angle, with the front end facing to the left. Upon closer inspection, however, you’ll notice that the wheels…well, the wheels just aren’t quite right! They’re sideways, which makes this car optical illusion just blow your mind! If you focus on the wheels and fenders, it seems like the car if actually parked at an…

    “Organized chaos” is how Austen based artist Sophie Roach describes her style. She started to sketch because of the “stress and boredom of college,” but it was only in 2012, two years after she began that, Roach’s art began to take off. “I didn’t realize it would be possible to make a living with my doodles until about two years ago” Roach told Chipper Things. “Since then I’ve drawn on so many different objects from cars, to guitars, to skateboards, to surfboards, to soccer balls, to (so many) shoes.

  • 20 Historic B&W Photos Restored In Color (Part III)

    Dainius
    27 May 2015 | 7:40 am
    These colorized monochrome photos will change the way you imagine the past. Since we live and remember in color, a black-and-white image seems almost of another world. Through the process of colorization, that world becomes more familiar, easier to imagine, and easier to connect to. Film colorization can be done by hand or digitally. Before the 1970’s, the most basic colorization required skillful painting of color directly onto film stock. The advent of computers allowed for digital colorization, a faster but still time-consuming process. In all cases, while there are some clues to the…

However, you can also shop for your next car with a budget friendly strategy so that you do not overspend. Here are 5 smart car-buying tips for frugal shoppers.

But simply washing your car once in a while is not enough. You also need to wax the body, Armor All the tires and interior surfaces, and get the entire vehicle detailed on a schedule. You might not think that all of this is necessary, but if you want to keep your car in the best condition possible, regular washing, waxing, and detailing is essential.

    The Curious Diary of Mr Jam

  • Today the Universe wants me to think about cows

    Mr Jam
    17 May 2015 | 6:49 pm
    A RURAL FRIEND WAS worried that his hens might come down with bird flu in this rainy, humid weather.I was about to say: “Give them chicken soup,” but then I thought, maybe not. Insensitive? Everyone’s health-aware these days. Last weekend, a colleague lifted his tee-shirt to show off his six-pack of abs. I told him that I only had one ab but it was a BIGGIE. Does that count? But to be honest, it’s hard for us “weird news” columnists to be fighting fit as our main job requires us to sit patiently until someone else does our work for us. I watch that email inbox LIKE A HAWK.
  • Monday moan: Why I hate motivational speakers

    Mr Jam
    10 May 2015 | 6:33 pm
    I ONCE SAT IN a seminar where the motivational speaker kept saying: “Accept yourself as you really are.” Fine with me, but the colleagues who were at my side all had serial killer personalities. I tried to warn the speaker but she didn't pick up on my discreet pointing and head-shaking gestures. People in certain professions, such as journalism, law and stockbroking, can be "rough diamonds" (minus the diamond part). One reporter colleague made so many enemies he ended up renaming half the contacts in his phone book “Do Not Answer”. Nobody wants these people to be…

    MY WIFE BOUGHT a product called “Extra Sensitive Baby Wipes”. If you use them to clean your shoes, they get really upset. Okay, that’s a joke, but I have URGENT NEWS on sanitation. Ladies should enjoy the women’s room while they can. It is on track to vanish forever. The high-speed spread of so-called “equality laws” makes ALL forms of sexual differentiation automatically illegal. “Any type of single-sex facility is thus discriminatory,” said a reader named Mark who works as a paralegal. This is not a joke. City officials in Vancouver have changed building laws to make unisex…
  • DOG LOGIC: 8 ways to think like your pooch

    Mr Jam
    26 Apr 2015 | 6:55 pm
    My dog spends hours visualising her dinner, licking her lips in anticipation of it, and walking in and out of the kitchen to catch the precise moment when it is served. And when it appears, she inhales it in one nanosecond. Slurrrp! Gone. “At least savour the thing!” I shout, but she pretends not to understand English. Besides, she follows dog logic, which ain’t human logic. Here’s how dogs deal with problems: 1) face whatever it is, 2) slowly tilt your head and look at it from a 45-degree angle, 3) if it remains puzzling, go off to the kitchen to see if any food has magically…

Why duplicate the work?” He warned me that if I let other people read my emails, someone would steal my identity. Let them. They can take over the unending struggle to pay rent and school fees. I’ll go and do something easier, like solving the Middle East crisis, fixing the Greek economy, finding Waldo, etc. People have such a defeatist attitude these days.

    These electric blue shapes in the brown desert are potash evaporation ponds managed by Intrepid Potash, Inc., the United States’ largest producer of potassium chloride, and are located along the Colorado River, about 30 km west of Moab, Utah. These ponds measure 1.5 square kilometers, and are lined with rubber to keep the salts in. Unlike other salt evaporation ponds that get a naturally reddish tinge due to the presence of certain algae, the bright blue color of these potash evaporation ponds come from an artificially added dye that aids the absorption of sunlight and evaporation.

  • Nilometer: Ancient Structures Used to Measure the Level of River Nile

    Kaushik
    26 May 2015 | 2:51 am
    Every year the river Nile begins to rise in the summer, the water overflows its banks and deposits slit on the surrounding floodplain. It is this annual flood that makes the land fertile allowing it to be cultivated and civilization to exist. Since the ancient times, the Egyptians depended on the Nile’s flood and its regular return for their sustenance. But the flood was unpredictable. While a moderate inundation was a vital part of the agricultural cycle, too much flood water was disastrous as it washed away crops and much of the infrastructure built on the flood plain. If the river failed…

    The Cardrona Bra Fence of Central Otago, New Zealand, began in 1999 some time between Christmas and New Year, when four women's bras were found attached to the wire fence alongside the road. It's not known who did it and why, but rumor is that a group of women were celebrating the new year at the Cardrona Hotel, and after leaving the pub late at night, they decided to take off their bras and hang them on the fence. The sight of female lingerie fluttering in the wind inspired more women to leave their undergarments, and by the end of February 2000, the original four were joined by…
  • Clootie Wells: The Celtic Wishing Trees

    The tradition of making offerings at wishing trees and wells dates back hundreds of years, and can be found all over the world in different forms. In Scotland, Ireland and England, where old Celtic tradition persists, they are known as Clootie wells. A clootie well is a well or spring, almost always with a tree growing beside it, where strips of cloth or rags are tied to the branches, usually in the hope of having an illness cured. "Clootie" is a Scottish word that means cloth. To make an offering, pieces of cloth or cloot are generally dipped in the water of the holy well and then…

The entire landscape of the island is dominated by the twin peaks of the 1,170-meters high granite mountain, also named Uummannaq, that occupies almost the entire northern half of the island.
