From Easter Island statues to crashed plane to climbable lighthouses,these playgrounds by Monstrum are some of the coolest I've ever seen. In fact, it kind of makes me want to go to Denmark just so I can go play inside the belly of a whale or climb on the webs dangling under a spider's belly.

The Lord of the Rings may quickly discuss how orcs were created, but somehow this makes much more sense. Take one pudgy-faced cat, squish it's head good and bam! You've got an orc.
Yes, this is the most epic Mario-themed bathroom ever created. No, I still don't recommend trying to crawl through any of the pipes in this house to go looking for extra lives and gold coins. All you will find is a terrible smell and tons of bacteria.

Let's be honest, many of us are interested in losing weight, but it just seems so tedious. The trick is to find something that works with your lifestyle so you can maintain your interest.

Of course, like any good list of gadgets, many of them are pretty darn expensive, so be prepared to shell out a lot of cash if you actually want to own everything listed there.

If you're a geek who loves both alcohol and gaming, then you'll certainly love Arkeg.

On the other hand, for almost $4000, a few six packs and an X Box could be just as good.

If you enjoy Being Human, The Vampire Diaries or any other supernatural dramas, then you owe a debt of gratitude to Dark Shadows. That’s because it was the first show to bring supernatural elements into a drama format. Of course, if all you know about the series are the previews from the new movie, then you might be shocked to hear that it’s a drama at all. Since the new movie doesn’t seem like a great place to learn about this groundbreaking series, let’s take a look at the show and how it finally got mashed into the Tim Burton film coming out tomorrow. For those interested in catching the series, don't worry, this is a spoiler free zone. Image via mediafury [Flickr]
It Didn’t Start Out So Dark
These days, the show is famous for its supernatural storylines, but nothing of that nature was present when the show was first pitched. It all started in 1965, when Dan Curtis had a dream about a mysterious young woman on a train. He pitched the idea to ABC, where it was quickly greenlit. Art Wallace was hired to create a story from Curtis’ dream and he came up with a tale about a young orphan, Victoria Winters, trying to discover her past in the strange town of Collinsport, Maine.
When the show premiered, it did fairly poorly both due to its use of mostly unknown actors and its long, drawn out storylines. Even as the show was struggling though, it was still innovative, being one of the first soaps to incorporate flashbacks and parallel time lines. Six months into the show, things started to become more interesting when ghosts were introduced into the story. While it’s not all that rare for shows to use the supernatural these days, at the time, it was unprecedented and the show quickly increased in notoriety.
