Classical Sculptures Dressed As Hipsters We first wrote about Caillard and Persani’s hipster sculptures over a year ago, and since the new works by this duo are just as hilarious, we couldn’t let them go unnoticed! Whatever they say about not judging a book by its cover, we still do it. French photographer Léo Caillard and art director Alexis Persani illustrate that with their Street Stone photography series, were they dress ancient Louvre’s sculptures into something more trendy and up-to-date.

GREENPEACE She’s the first ship in our fleet designed and built specifically for Greenpeace. That means the Rainbow Warrior is not just one of the most environmentally-friendly ships ever made; she’s also a campaigner’s dream. We are thrilled she’s now fighting with us for a green and peaceful future. Check out the live webcam images After 22 tireless years at the campaigning frontline, the second Rainbow Warrior retired from her Greenpeace life on 16 August 2011.

The Scariest Story There was a short period of my early life that was punctuated by truly unfortunate nightmares. I'd go to sleep feeling safe and warm. Then I'd awaken several hours later and somehow be completely convinced that my closet was inhabited by fire monsters. I'd flee to my parents' room because, like most six-year-olds, I believed that my parents possessed some magical ability to ward off homicidal, fire-breathing monsters that were easily eight times their size. I don't know exactly how I thought they would be able to protect me from the monster, but as far as I was concerned, my parents were forcefields of safety and that fire monster could go fuck itself. As I lay there between my parents, I felt a gigantic flood of relief.

Albino animals Does being completely white make them less cute? On the contrary, unlike albino humans I think these critters are even cuter than their “custom” colored kin. It’s clear that animals aren’t protected from genetic anomalies any more than people are, but at least most of them are not discriminating. Dougal Dixon "Man after man. An anthropology of the future" Foreword by Brian Aldiss It has become necessary to look into the future. There must have been a time, long past, when animals much like apes looked up into the night sky and wondered about the stars: what those pinpoints of light were, and what they were for. Only a brief while after that, the apelike things acquired language; then stories began to be told, and fantasies woven about the stars overhead.

Woolly sheep pigs arrive at Essex zoo Tropical Wings Three rare woolly pigs – or sheep pigs – are settling into their new home at Tropical Wings Zoo in Essex, but many visitors think they’re sheep. And who can blame them? The three pigs-in-blankets – Buddy, Porsche and Margot – have been brought to the zoo to breed, to help stop the rare animals going extinct. And they’re certainly hogging the limelight. From sheep pigs to zenkeys and ligers: The world’s weirdest animals They are officially known as Mangalitzas and are native to Austria and Hungary, but do have a genetic link to the Lincolnshire curly coat, which roamed British fields until they went extinct in 1972. Dog A lingering fear of mine was confirmed last night: My dog might be slightly retarded. I've wondered about her intelligence ever since I adopted her and subsequently discovered that she was unable to figure out how stairs worked. I blamed her ineptitude on the fact that she'd spent most of her life confined to a small kennel because her previous owners couldn't control her. I figured that maybe she just hadn't been exposed to stairs yet.

Chicks With Steve Buscemeyes Kate Middleton with Steve Buscemeyes was removed. Here she is again. Final post. Steve Buscemi with Jon Laneyes. Thanks so much for all the amazing comments. Watch A Tapir Scratch An Itch With His Enormous, Prehensile Penis I don't even know where to start with this one. There are four species of Tapir, all of which are endangered. A herbivorous mammal that can be found in the grasslands of Central and Southern America, across the Andes and in Southeast Asia, the tapir is a quirky-looking creature with a hog-like body and short gripping proboscis, or trunk. Although interesting-looking in general, it is often known in mainstream media for strutting about with an impressively large penis – and one it isn't afraid to wave around. Its prehensile penis (meaning it can grip with it) is used to keep hold of a female during copulation to ensure successful insemination. But apparently, the tapir has found another unusual use for its lengthy member:
