If you're into it, chances are there are others like you (how else can you explain the popularity of Carp Monthly?) For those of you who like to live on the fringe, here are 10 Interesting Subcultures you might want to check out. Side note: a broken doll would make for a good Halloween costume!

Incredibly Realistic Sculptures by Adam Beane. Of course one of them is of Kate (from "Lost") looking confused ... what else is new?
*
The Wall Street Journal tells us something we know but keep refusing to believe: How Facebook Ruins Friendships. In related news, a rundown of Facebook Political Scandals (or "Why We Will Never Run for Office")
*

Road trips can center around plenty of things - great bands, national parks, lost vestiges of youth and ... Mothman? Check out these other sci-fi must-sees around the US.
