Are you ready to rock hard--at least as hard as a copper and nickel alloy? Dustin and Stephanie can help. They cut and shape US coins into fully functional guitar picks. They're available as common coins, such as quarters and Sacagawea dollars, or antique coins, including buffalo nickels, wheat pennies and silver dollars.

"I am a software engineer by trade and certainly not a planetary scientist, so most of my assumptions were based on simply comparing the Mars terrain to similar features here on Earth (e.g. elevation, proximity to bodies of water, physical features, geographical position, etc) and then using the corresponding textures from the Blue Marble images."

To promote the premier of the new CGI Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle show that appeared on Nickelodeon September 29, 2012, NickALive created TMNT 3D street art on the Riverside Walkway by St Gabriel’s Wharf in London.
I love 3D street art. At first, the art looks so realistic that it's terrifying, but once you get over the fact that it's not real, you almost wish it was. Well, that's my thinking process at least.

When Evan was only seven, he saved up his allowance for a year to donate to City Kitties, a rescue shelter in Philadelphia. He did the same thing every year since, each time saving a more money, until he was proud to donate $110 in 2012. Along the way, Evan got more joy from the donations, and the two cats his family got from the shelter, than from all the candy that money could have bought. Read his story, and the letters he wrote to the shelter, at Buzzfeed. Link

Datta Phuge of Pimpri-Chinchwad, India, spent £14,000 ($22,754) on a custom-made gold shirt to impress women. The shirt is woven through with 24-karat gold thread and comes with matching cuffs, belt, and rings made of leftover gold. The six buttons are Swarovski crystals. Phuge made his fortune as a money-lender.
'I know I am not the best looking man in the world but surely no woman could fail to be dazzled by this shirt?' he explained

A gargantuan rubber duckie floated into Sydney Harbor on Saturday. No one panicked, as the 15-meter-tall duck was there to open the annual Sydney Festival, a celebration of art featuring 750 artists, musicians, filmmakers, dancers, and other cultural participants from 17 countries. Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman, known for his giant ducks, created the spectacle. See more pictures at Kuriositas. Link -via the Presurfer

Putting dogs in a hospital may seem like an unsanitary move, but if they are specially trained to sniff out bacteria to help diagnose patients infected with Clostridium difficille before anyone would ever be able to identify the infection then they can actually help save lives by preventing the spread of the bacteria.

The volcano has erupted many times since then, including in the 20th century. Got that? It’s still active. Now take another look at that photo, and let the volcano’s surroundings settle in to your mind. It sits just a few kilometers from Naples, and more than half a million people live in the volcano’s red zone—where destruction from a big eruption would be swift and brutal.

This map was produced by running all the various countries’ “History of _____” Wikipedia article through a word cloud, then writing out the most common word to fit into the country’s boundary. The result is thousands of years of human history oversimplified into 100-some words.
Whether this says more about each country or the way we record and teach history is up for debate. Some of the more interesting findings are noted at Flickr. Drag the image around to see the world, or see the whole thing at once at HugePic. Link -via Not Exactly Rocket Science
