Albania's laws and culture are so restrictive for women that "Sworn Virgins" find it easier to just live as men. They live celibate lives, but in return they have the freedom to do as they please. Many of them were assigned this role as children, and were raised as boys.

A 1:1 scale replica of the Hoverboard used by Marty McFly in Back To The Future Part 2 is now being sold by Mattel through their collectible toys site MattyCollector.com.
If you're willing to fork out $130 to get your hands on one be forewarned- it does nothing but lie there and look cool, it's a movie prop replica not an amazing feat of mechanical engineering!

Brazilian artist and craftsman clefrayearth loves playing the Legend Of Zelda games so much that he thought it might be a good idea to build his own Hylian Shield and channel his inner Link.
Now clefrayearth must go forth and find a cave with an old man in it who's willing to part with his precious Wooden Sword, then he'll be ready to set off on a real adventure!

You can always count on Jill of Kitchen Fun with My Three Sons to create food crafts for every holiday. This is her latest marvel: reindeer corn dogs. To make them, you'll need corn dogs, ketchup, pretzel twists, raisins and sliced white cheese.

I am not surprised that a 19-year old girl would rob a bank. Nor am I really surprised that she would brag about it online. What amazes me is that she did so in a video that clearly took some effort to produce. And the captions that she provided for the video demonstrate fairly good grammar, spelling and capitalization. An example:
Nevertheless, the entire exercise was unwise, beginning with her decision to rob a bank in Waco, Nebraska. She's now in jail.

Kids see stuffed animals as more than just toys- they're a fuzzy best friend, confidante and a great snuggle buddy come bed time.
But what do these stuffed critters look like after years of being loved? Photographer Mark Nixon explores that very question in his photo series MuchLoved, and some of his subjects are over fifty years old! The backstory for each toy is cute, but the pics are kinda creepy...

The Berlin wall came down in 1989, for Bulgarians that meant finally escaping the clutches of Communism. In Sofia, that capital city, things were a challenge with high rent prices and opening up new business with a store front was no easy task. So what to do? Open a business in a basement, that's what!
"Klek" shops are small pop-up convenient stores that operate out of basements, using a small window as a means of doing business. These aren't new, klek shops have been around since the fall of the wall, but they are starting to disappear. Luckily Deviantartist Sograph has put together a great gallery of the shops around Sophia before they are all gone.

What is more quintessentially American than a 3-foot-tall Abraham Lincoln Gingerbread Statue? It's completely edible and made with rice krispie treats, chocolate, fondant, royal icing, cookies, and peppermint sticks. This was completed by Patti Paige of Baked Ideas.
Located at Le Parker Meridien in NYC, it's a good thing the statue is some 2,800 miles away from the Neatorama offices. While I would feel very guilty about eating the 16th President's bow tie, eat it I would.

The Voyager I space probe, launched in 1977, continues to transmit data as it approaches the edge of the solar system. NASA announced yesterday that it appears Voyager has entered a new region of space, which may be the final barrier before leaving the heliosphere and venturing into interstellar space. They don't know for sure because we've never had a spacecraft travel this far.

From splotches of tea, coffee, and juice, Angela Mercedes Donna Otto was able to create these astounding works. The beauty in a lot of art comes from the naïvety of people assuming on approach that "oh I could do that." Upon further examination, the realization usually dawns on them that they indeed could not.
I love the idea of art as apophenia. We have all caught ourselves at one point or another trying to connect the dots (figuratively) on some pattern that doesn't really exist. A cynic might say religion to some extent has a level of apophenia in it. All that being said, I don't necessarily think falling into this pursuit of constructing meaning is an inherently bad thing. We got these beautiful works out of it after all.
I wonder what sorts of juices she was using. Pomegranate, cranberry, and grapefruit would all have some nice colors. Tasty too.

So this is what happens when two sci-fi universes collide. Jean-Luc (or is it Jean-Luke? That can't be a coincidence!) discovered that the truth hurts more than being stabbed in the heart by a Nausicaan, as illustrated by Fredo & Pid'jin webcomic.

"To me, the beauty, courage, grace and movement of a horse are like living, breathing poetry." So writes Indonesian scultor Abdul Ghofur about his love for the horse on display in this driftwood sculpture of a mare and filly.

Did you know that the sphinx is just one of several hairless cat breeds? There are four, count 'em, four hairless breeds in this list of ten from Environmental Graffiti. Shown here is the Elf cat, a new breed created by Karen Nelson and Kristen Leedom, that reminds one of a certain Jedi master. Link

Swedish artist Axel Torvenius sculptures are like fragments of a nightmare, masks which show faces in the midst of transformation and other dark works which explore bodily deconstruction and mortality.
They're hauntingly beautiful and should appeal to Halloweenies who also have love for fine art, check out the rest of Axel's works at the link below.

Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, is pregnant with a child who will be in a direct line to inherit the throne of England. The news is not all good, as the Duchess has been hospitalized for treatment of hyperemesis gravidarum, or severe and debilitating morning sickness. The New York Times spoke with Dr. Marlena Fejzo, an obstetrics researcher and former H.G. sufferer, about the condition.
