A new concept on where babies come from that's entirely unexpected (but entirely cute) (Thanks Kolja!)
*
The beauty and precision of mandalas is breathtaking, but the practice of erasing them when complete shows nothing is permanent. I always want to intervene at the last second and cry "Noooo!!!" but I think that's missing the point.
*
As your scrape for pennies, don't allow your precious pooch to fall from the lap of luxury. Check out these Ridiculous Hotel Pet Amenities. As the site says, "there's no 'dog' in 'recession.'"
*
From people much more talented than I, photos from the 2009 World Sand Sculpture Festival.

*
Another oldie but goodie: Right Brain vs Left. I can get it to go both ways but I can't isolate how (blinking? Staring at the torso? The foot? Sheer will?)
*
From the Annals of Too Much Time: silly but also hilarious and ... true: the M&M color championship.
*
Spring in full bloom - it's tulip season in the Netherlands! A landscape of rainbows.

Absolutely Beautiful Cave Views

*
Be forewarned! Here's a list of the most dangerous roads in the world. It's easy to see why - with such spectacular views I doubt many people are paying proper attention to where they are going!
*
N ur interwebz, hackin ur pollz: 4chan up to his old tricks again.
*
From Cracked, the 12 saddest world record attempts. Funny, but a little crass for the sensitive.
*
Er, speaking of .... Pope condoms! When you really need to get out of the mood.
*
More clever advertising that makes me know that eventually everything will be a stage for ads.
*
Intriguing animation showcase. Like those kitchen appliances that can look like cabinets, I wish my printer and scanner looked like books. (Merci Jan!)
*
From my friend Declan: You've probably seen this before, but it is a classic. Hilarious Amazon commentary on a ridiculous cable. Does anyone remember the tank that used to be featured on there as well?
*
From Bobby, judge for yourself the racial nature of this Jell-O commercial from the 60s. (Thanks Bobby!)
*
So why did the chicken cross the road? Centuries of thinkers theoretically weigh in with their chicken philosophy
*
Somehow I find this time lapse of the cosmos soothing.
