Alien Ghost: Mars Rover Catches an Unexplained Flash of Light

If there’s one thing that would make me happy about the whole Mars Rover program it would be if they found a Martian. Just some little grey-green man walking around naked trying to remember which rock he left his sandwich under. Maybe he wears a straw hat, I don’t know, but that would really just …

A Wild Pizza Appears: Pepperoni Pizzas in the Wild

If you could grow anything you liked in your garden what would you opt for? I’d grow a pizza bush. Or maybe a hotdog tree. But that seems like something that would do better on the North side of the house where it gets a bit less sun. Photographer Jonpaul Douglass would go for the pizza …

That’s a Bad Omen: Islands are Eating Each Other

In November 2013, a seafloor volcano in the western Pacific Ocean spewed enough material to rise above the water line. The new island, or Niijima, sprouted just 500 meters from Nishino-shima, another volcanic island that had last erupted and expanded in 1973–74. Four months later, the new and the old are now one island, and …

Like the Broilers grow too fast for their feathers and the Cochins have feathery feet but it turns out that some are even stranger than that. Photographer and visual artist Ernest Goh …

New Ultimate Selfie: Danish Fighter Pilot Takes a Selfie While Firing a Missile

This is a nameless fighter pilot that the Danish Air Force is now using for advertisement. It’s working. I’m gonna go join. You think they’ll still let me fly if recreating this image is my goal for the first day? The Danish fighter pilot manages to take a photograph of himself just as the missile …

Burning Alcohol Looks like a Brain

There is probably some cosmic joke behind this but it turns out that a plume of burning alcohol vapor looks a lot like a human brain. This could probably be used in one of those anti drug and alcohol commercials but you’ll have to talk to the guys in marketing to get more details on …

Uncanny Seahorse will Haunt your Dreams

Here’s a piece of, I guess you could call it art, that I find very unsettling. If you can’t tell it’s a paper mache seahorse. To me it looks more like all my spider-swarm nightmares fell into a swimming pool with a bunch of old newspapers and a bottle of Elmer’s Glue. Somehow those things …

That’s What You Get: Selfies Lead to Head Lice Epidemic

Who can raise their hand and tell me how head lice spread? Anybody? Don’t be shy? Ok fine, I’ll tell you. Head lice spread when something that touches the head of a carrier touches something else that touches the head of a new host. Or at least that’s how it has worked for thousands of …
