The Wall of I Love Yous
"In a world marked by violence and dominated by individualism, walls, like frontiers, are usually made to divide and to separate people and to protect them from one another. On the contrary, LE MUR DES JE T'AIME (The Wall of I love Yous) is a link, a place of reconciliation, a mirror which reflects an image of love and peace."
How to Build an H-Bomb
"Making and owning an H-bomb is the kind of challenge real Americans seek. Who wants to be a passive victim of nuclear war when, with a little effort, you can be an active participant?"
Chronicle of the Future
"Welcome to your future -- tomorrow's news today. We have mapped a path from the already familiar landscape of life in 2000 through to the uncharted territories of 2050..."
Sacred Arts of Haitian Vodou
"Vodou is Haiti's mirror. Its arts and rituals reflect the difficult, brilliant history of seven million people, whose ancestors were brought from Africa to the Caribbean in bondage."
Raw Potato Crucifix
"I was peeling potatoes for Thanksgiving dinner (11/27/2003). On my second stroke this is what I saw..."
The Tongue Twister Database
"This page was originally created to give a good group of tongue twisters to people in speech therapy, to people who want to work on getting rid of an accent, or to people who just plain like tongue twisters."
"Death masks are true portraits, although changes are occasionally made in the eyes of the mask to make it appear as though the subject were alive. For the last few centuries they have been kept as mementos of the dead, much like postmortem photography."
"This gallery contains images which were created by focusing on a small portion of a larger object. The images show a part of the whole, but never all of it. They are representative of an area that is unique to the object or its class."
Museum of Ancient Inventions
"The dramatic pace of technological change in the twentieth century obscures the surprising fact that most of the discoveries and inventions on which modern societies have been constructed were made in prehistoric times. Ancient inventions tell detailed stories of complex knowledge for which no written records exist."
"Feral children, also known as wolf children, are children who've grown up with minimal human contact, or even none at all. They may have been brought up by animals (often wolves) or somehow survived on their own. In some cases, children are confined and denied normal social interaction with other people."
Theaters of the 13th Dimension
About the Artist: "Mars Tokyo is a recluse/artist living in North Dakota. She is reported to be a giantess effected by radiation at birth. Little is known of her background and no one has ever taken a photograph of her, but it is believed that she was born in Hiroshima at the time of the atomic bomb."
The Picture of Everything
"Soon I had all the modern and ancient wonders of the world, 157 Pokemon, reproductions of Alex Grey, MC Escher and other famous artists' works, and as many space ships, religious figures, cartoon characters, historical figures and places, imaginary buildings, super heroes, famous vehicles, movie stars, rock stars, etc., that I could think of in one giant picture."
"'Logo R.I.P.' is a commemoration of logos withdrawn from the ocular landscape. Many are considered icons of their time or international design classics, whilst others cost millions only to be replaced within a year or two."
"Joseph Jernigan died by lethal injection in 1993. His body was encased in gelatin, frozen, and carved into 1,862 transverse (horizontal) slices. Each millimeter-thin section was photographed, digitized, and electronically reassembled to create the 'Visible Human Male,' part of the National Library of Medicine's Visible Human Project."
Zach's Bug-Feasting Page
"Other bugs that I have tried: canned ants from Japan, not so good (too much soysauce?); live honey bee queen larvae from queen cups, a by-product of royal jelly production; frozen drone pupae (white eye stage); a few ant larvae; meal worms either in a pie or fried -- crunchy and better than french fries!"
Here you will find "shadowy occultists rubbing shoulders with enigmatic imposters, poltergeist girls with feral children, eccentric travelers with mystical writers, the king of the gypsies with a princess from Javasu."
Etiquette Manual (1935)
"The gentle minde by gentle deeds is knowne:
For a man by nothing is so well bewrayed
As by his manners."
The Bra Ball
"As I began building the BraBall, hooking bras end-to-end, winding them layer upon layer, it couldn’t help but reflect other circular shapes; it resembles a globe, an egg, an ovary, a seedpod, a cell, and of course a breast."
World' Largest Ball of Twine
"Frank Stoeber started this ball of twine on his farm in 1953. By 1957 it weighed 5,000 pounds, stood 8 feet high, and had 1,175,180 feet of twine on it. Stoeber gave the ball to Cawker City in 1961 before his death in 1974."
"Time Tales is a collection of found photographs. Found at fleamarkets, thriftshops, some are scooped up from streets and alleyways, fallen from an overstuffed bag or torn pocket..."
Did you know: strengths, nine letters long, is the longest word in the English language with only one vowel?
"If you wish to do something now that will help your unbelieving friends and family after the rapture, you need to add those persons email address to our database. Their names will be stored indefinitely and a letter will be sent out to each of them on the first Friday after the rapture."
"Welcome, friends of the asinine, to the wide and wonderful world of Rude Food. Only here will your scholarly curiosity be rewarded with a rare glimpse into the global study of smutty sustenance."
Gallery of Shrunken Heads
"By the end of the nineteenth century, little was still known about the Jivaro Indian clans in South America, except for their macabre practices of taking the heads of their enemies. This practice intrigued travelers and collectors and compelled them to visit these tribes to satisfy their curiosity."
"The first head, Kinskihead, was set alight by mistake. It was originally made out of blue and red matches but once burnt they became different shades of grey ash. What interests me is the violence and power involved in that change and the fact that this performance comes from such a cheap, throwaway, almost non-material."
