Sad Baby Monsters: Cthulhu and the Rancor Just Need a Hug A few weeks ago, we posted a set of redesigns by students at the Savannah College of Art and Design inspired by Marvel’s American Panther, including one by SCAD’s own Jackie Lewis. I had the chance to meet Jackie this past weekend at Fluke 2011 in Athens, GA, and it turns out that turning the Red Skull into an icon of American patriotism isn’t the only incredible transformation she’s pulled off — she’s also done a set of Sad Baby Monsters that show a softer side of horrors, from mythological beasts like the Hydra and the Chimera, all the way down to pop culture icons like Cthulhu and The Rancor from Star Wars!

This monster has become popularly known as the "Chicken Man." Fate magazine's February (2000) issue recounts the facts of the case as preserved by the attending physician, Dr. Gottlieb Friderici. The physician witnessed the event and preserved the fetus in formaldehyde along with an extensive report of his autopsy, including drawings and the medical history of the mother. During the autopsy, the doctor noted that the oversized head did not have the characteristics of hydrocephaly and the tumor like outgrowth was completely filled with brain matter.

Leadership Lessons from the Saddle - Nancy Koehn - HBS Faculty by Nancy Koehn | 9:30 AM May 3, 2011 Since I was a little girl, I have been afraid of horses. They always seemed so big and so powerful, especially when I saw them galloping and heard the pounding thunder of their hooves on the ground. And so it was a real challenge coming to terms with that fear when I began riding horses and competing in the show jumping ring some years ago. In the process, though, I realized that many of the lessons I learned on a horse have strong relevance and application for leading and motivating a team in pursuit of a worthy mission. As in any sport, riding is about more than just the technical, physical aspects; it absorbs you emotionally and intellectually.

Creepy, Crusty, Crumbling: Illegal Tour of Abandoned Six Flags New Orleans [75 Pics] Hurricane Katrina killed this clown. According to the photographer, “An abandoned Six Flags amusement park, someone spray painted ‘Six Flags 2012 coming soon’ on the wall above the downed head. But they were clownin.’ Six Flags will never rebuild here.” That’s sad, but much of New Orleans has not been restored to her former glory. This defunct amusement park on the city’s eastern edge must surely serve as a constant reminder that Katrina tried to wash them off the map.
