In 1970, Bill Baxley, the new Attorney General of the State of Alabama, reopened the investigation of the 1963 bombing of a church in which four little African-American girls died. For doing so, he received death threats from the Klan and similar organizations. Baxley's response to one was short and to the point.

Yes, the shoulder stock of this AK-47 is from a shovel. That's not the impressive part. The receiver--the housing for the action--is also from a shovel. Yes, really! Boris melted, reforged, reshaped, cut and welded the blade of a shovel into a completely functional receiver. The result is a beautiful piece of post-apocalyptic engineering.
Why did he do it? Boris isn't clear on the subject, but a fair amount of vodka went to the decision-making process. That belongs in everyone's OODA loop.

Some dads just get it. They build awesome things, like big Star Wars Cardboard Star Destroyers, with their kids for endless hours of enjoyment. Bruce is such a dad. Here is what he had to say on building this project.
Result? One happy kid.

I was once married to a musician who always wanted to name a band Free Beer because it would look good on a marquee. I'm pretty sure that was the thinking behind Barenaked Ladies. But of course, Lost Cat will get attention, too! This Twaggie was rendered from a Tweet by @OhDuarte. Illustration by Gemma Correll. See a new illustrated every day at Twaggies. Link

Titled Let's Put Our Heads Together, this sculpture was created by the creative Stephen Shaheen. While not necessarily practical for home living, his work is captivating to me. Maybe it's the use of the Edison Bulbs, another impractical yet mesmerizing item, but I want one. It's something that I feel I think I could do on my own, but then when I turn around and try it - the project turns out horribly wrong. Like so wrong.

What you see here is a TAKRAF RB293 bucket wheel excavator. It's a big machine alright -notice the tiny little people in the lower right corner! But there are other machines even bigger, made to move mountains, dig tunnels, build bridges and tall buildings, and accelerate particles. See and read about them in a roundup at Dark Roasted Blend.

A young woman begins a regimen of cancer treatment and reaches out to the internet to share her experience with others who are going through the same thing. She builds a circle of friends for support, but while going through her own struggle, finds out gradually two of them are faking their illness for attention. Playing the patient online is a lot easier and more common than faking illness in real life.
After she becomes a crusader to expose fake internet personas with tragic medical stories, she is victimized once again by an even more convincing troll who went to great lengths to prove her nonexistent illnesses. You may recognize some aspects of her story at The Stranger. Or you may learn to be even more diligent when befriending people online. Link -via Fark

John Storms hasn't lived in Cedar Park, Texas, very long, but he and his family arrived with a splash, synching a huge Christmas light display to PSY's "Gangnam Style." The LED lights should only cost about $15 a month in electricity. "Gangnam Style" is not the only song the lights dance to. -via Stuff I Stole from the Internet

Russia brings their spacecraft home a bit differently from what NASA astronauts are accustomed to. Instead of splashing down in the ocean, or landing like a plane on a runway, Soyuz craft parachute onto land. On November 19th, NASA Commander Sunita Williams and JAXA engineer Akihiko Hoshide found out what that was like as they returned from the International Space Station on a Soyuz TMA-05M spacecraft with Russian Yuri Malenchenko. This photograph shows the craft glowing brightly as it hits the atmosphere.
And you thought a roller coaster was an exciting ride. Read more about the trip at Bad Astronomy. Link

Disney is developing a robot that can interact with visitors at its theme parks. Throw a ball, he catches it. If he doesn't catch it, he uses body language to acknowledge the fact. Throw more balls, and you can juggle with it. The unnamed robot is only in development now, and looks unnervingly like the Terminator. Those who think that Disney = Skynet have a little more ammunition for their theory. Link -via Daily of the Day

Tarzan is one swingin' cat, he's the Lord of the Jungle who hangs out in the trees all day sporting a leopard print loincloth and luscious locks.
Edgar Rice Burroughs' Ape Man recently celebrated his 100th birthday, so now it's time to set the record straight and illustrate the differences between the yodel-yelling version on the screen(s) and the savage gentleman from the pages of the original pulp novels. Ungawa!
