These rare, vintage color photos of Russia are over 100 years old. Monastery of St. Nil’, Lake Seliger, Russia. Remember when Russia was known for beautiful architecture, gorgeous fashion, and idyllic townships surrounded by pastoral countryside, instead of bigoted opinions, fascist leaders, and vodka? I don’t either, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t true. These photos, by Russian chemist and ... More...

One man and his family live in a fantasy castle that transforms into a truck. Being from the south, I know a lot of people that live in mobile homes, and wish they were castles. If I’m honest, I’ve even dated a few of them. Apparently this dream isn’t that uncommon however, because a New Zealand couple has transformed their truck into a mobile fantasy castle. Justin and Jola Siezen, along with... More...

New Oreo Thins Are Like Cookie Supermodels

Have you heard of new Oreo Thins yet? While they’re not actually for supermodels (they’re still cookies), they appear to be the super svelte, more easily dunked cookie you’ve been searching for all these years. I, for one, am pretty excited about the opportunity to lie to myself about how many Oreo cookies I can/should eat in one sitting. From the brand: “Not a diet cookie, Oreo Thin... More...

A homeless man in Russia goes viral on the Internet.   I wasn’t aware they had the Internet in Russia, so all of this is news to me. A homeless man that lives on the streets in Moscow has found fame, and hopefully fortune by video blogging. Called the ‘bum-blogger’, Zhenya Yakut started recording videos of his life to show people a side of Moscow that they hadn’t seen. He quickly gain... More...

Redhead Day UK is a ginger pride festival coming to London this year. I have always had pride in gingers. In fact, I have had a lot of other things in gingers as well. Not to be overshadowed by the gays, redheads all over the UK are working on bringing their UK pride festival to London, to celebrate their flaming hairpieces in the capital. Redhead Day UK, an event dedicated to ginger pride and figh... More...

Every year in the summer, Japan’s Toyama Bay is lit up with blue firefly squid. I have seen bioluminescence before at a particularly disgusting beach in Long Island. Unfortunately the water was so gross I barely dipped a hand in to play with it, but I can tell you that bioluminescent bays are definitely something everyone should experience in their lives, especially when firefly squid are involved. Every year... More...

There’s a women-only fight club in Guerrero, Mexico. I am all for cultural traditions, and I am all for women-only fight clubs. In a long-standing cultural tradition that dates back to the Aztecs, women in the Nahua village of Guerrero, Mexico meet every year and beat the shit out of each other in a bizarre ritual to call the rain. The tradition starts in the morning when women prepare a hu... More...

The most densely populated island in the world is in Colombia. If you ask anyone what the most populated island on Earth is, most of them (at least the ones that know Manhattan is an island) will say Manhattan. A few more might say New York City, but they would also be ignorant since New York City is technically an archipelago. The most densely populate island is actually called Santa Cruz del Islo...

This stranded airplane in the woods is actually one creative man’s vacation home. If you are a fan of the TV show ‘Lost’, and actually managed to watch it all the way through without getting ‘lost’, then this story is probably right up your alley. Retired electrical engineer Bruce Campbell actually lives in this retired Boeing 727 aircraft fuselage for 6 months out of the year. He claims that... More...

A Manhattan couple is living my dream in a rooftop cabin in the West Village. You will have to forgive me if my words seem a little jumbled today, but writing through such intense jealousy is a difficult task. I have always struggled with the idea of living in a concrete city when I am innately a really outdoorsy kind of guy. On one hand, Manhattan has all the opportunity to do whatever you want to d...
