Discover the floating marsh homes of the Ma’dan people of Iraq. Also known as the ‘Marsh Arabs’, the Ma’dan people have a really unique form of architecture and way of life. They live on over 9,000 square miles of marshland, and have managed to use all those resources to create floating houses made entirely out of reeds harvested from open water. Called ‘mudhif’, the temporary structures take... More...

Weird photos from Russia. Yay? Ugh, Russia. Besides vodka and burly men that aren’t afraid to slap a hoe, I can’t think of anything really good that comes out of the country. These weird photos from various Russia (social media sites are the contributors, obvi) don’t do anything to help their cause, either. All the photos either contain a really unfortunate looking woman, a knit rug, or a gu... More...

Target and Magnum are celebrating the chocolate lover in all of us this season. I do some of my best creative work during the holiday season– there’s so much to be inspired by (insert the chocolatiest thoughts ever here), but there’s one common theme throughout these special weeks: chocolate (around my house anyway). I’m a huge Magnum fan since it’s the most premium and ... More...

A Crystal Clear Frozen Lake

Two men found a frozen lake with ice as clear as glass. The only time I have ever walked on a frozen lake was when I was traveling around upstate New York with my boyfriend, but I didn’t get very far because he was too worried I would fall in. We broke up soon after. I don’t like guys who limit my potential to die a painful death. If I had gone further though, I like to think I would see some... More...

Migaloo is a real-life white humpback whale. Apparently Moby Dick isn’t entirely fiction, since a white whale named Migaloo has been photographed off of Byron Bay in Australia. Is it just me, or does it seem like all the awesome stuff always happens in Australia? Migaloo originally came on the scene in 1991, but has since been photographed at least 50 times traveling up and down the coast, migr... More...

Proposed luxury condos in New York celebrate the hipster steampunk movement. I don’t know if you can really call ‘steampunk’ a movement, since it has basically been hanging around for years without ever becoming mainstream, but the developers of 15 Renwick, in downtown Manhattan believe in the style enough to brand their entire building as ‘steampunk’. The Victorian-obsessed style will be e... More...

The Craziest Chinese Music Video Ever

Wang Rong, the Chinese Lady Gaga has blessed us with this Chinese music video that makes about as much sense as tits on an ant. Even though I am a quarter Chinese, there are a lot of things I don’t understand about Chinese culture. For instance, why would you eat rice with two tiny little sticks when a spoon is much more practical? Why are there only like three Chinese last names? Why are the ... More...

Sriracha beer exists so you can cut out the middle man: food.  Remember when the sriracha was just sort of an under the radar thing that foodies added to their french fries and artisan sandwiches? Now there’s no need to even have the food. Sriracha beer exists, entirely eliminating the need for solid food. “Created by Oregon-based brewery Rogue Ales, the ‘Sriracha Hot Stout Beer’ is m...

Sending your kids to school on a jet-powered school bus is one way to guarantee they will never be late. I want to start off by saying that as long as you are okay with the risk of your kids being burnt to a fucking crisp, jet-powered school buses seem like an awesome idea. Paul Stender, an Indiana man shared this sentiment, and created a jet-powered schoolbus capable of going 367 mph. The bus, call... More...
