Ancient Artifacts – Creepy & Mysterious

Ancient Artifacts – Creepy & Mysterious

So much in this world is unexplained.  The more mysterious it is, the more we like it.  The more unexplainable, the harder we try to explain.  Such is the nature of the human condition.  Why else would there be so many television programs and channels devoted to solving the Earth’s mysteries?  Why else would my […]

Say Hello to my Immensely Humongous Friend

Say Hello to my Immensely Humongous Friend

Get ready to feel insignificant. The citizens of Earth are generally aware that Earth is a lot smaller than the Sun. And by a lot I mean the Earth could fill the Sun 1,000,000 times. Of course the sun isn’t even close to the largest thing in the galaxy, but to think that same ratio […]

Sometimes actors try to become musicians or singers.  There are some pretty bad musical performances by actors out there.  But what about the musicians who give the silver screen or the small screen a whirl?  Well, some are pretty bad, but some are pretty freakin’ awesome, too.  Do you like the bad news first, or […]

Tall People – A Chronicle of Remarkable “Giants”

When you write a lot about weird diseases, you run into conditions that have a bit of a carnival sideshow feel – hypermobility of joints that allow people to bend themselves up like pretzels;  hypertrichosis, which is also called the Wolfman Syndrome; and Microcephaly, the condition that “pinheads” have.  While it is pretty awful that […]

Unusual Objects Made from Gold – Weird Golden Toys

Sex, Alcohol, Candy and Face Creams Gold is rare and valuable.  It is incredibly labor intensive and dangerous to mine for both mine workers and the environment.  As such, the most obviously logical thing to do with it is rub it on your face and flush it down the toilet—in some cases literally. To follow […]

Fish Brained

Fish Brained

What the odds of this picture happening? You have to admit the timing is impeccable. How did we manage to catch one of the rarest creatures on Earth, Aquaticus Sapien, on film? In all seriousness, how does that thing breathe, gills or lungs? And is this more of an honor for the man or the […]

Way to Burst My Bubble

First off, how amazing is this photo? At first I thought it would be fun to find the origin of the phrase “burst my bubble” but it’s not readily available in the fifteen minutes I’ve allotted for this post.  Plus, the stuff I found on a random search was SO much better.  Since I can’t […]

Top Ten Famous Hoaxes in History

Top Ten Famous Hoaxes in History

One of the hallmarks of being human is the desire—and some may say the need—to try and fool ourselves and each other. We’ve even set aside a special day—April 1st—to celebrate this aberration in human nature, making the quest to offer fiction as fact a never ending roller coaster ride. Of course, sometimes these innocent […]

Bizarre Headlines in the News

Trolling through the news, some gems that might amuse… Our Sofa Seats the Whole Mob and It’s 100% Italian Leather Too! This was an advertizing mistake for a furniture store which fortunately had no connections with the Godfather or the mafia.  Still, it shows just what can happen when a writer is focused on his […]

New Years Resolutions

New Years Resolutions

Decking of the halls, sleigh rides, drunk uncles, festive crowds filling Times Square – these all are blatant signs of the holiday season.  2010 has been, for most people, a rough and tumble year.  With a brand new year looming, we must wonder if 12:01 am on January 1st will spell renewed hope or inevitable […]

Top Photographs of 2010

A lot of different sites have posted the top photographs of 2010, but Yahoo had some really good ones, and said anybody could use them, so I am.  I’m not showing you all 212 of them – just the ones that I can look at over and over again – or just once.  Gripping stuff, […]
