Because they're so easily carved, there's so much food crafting that you can do with mushrooms. Zachary Kominar made these skulls for a pirate-themed party, but they'd also work well for Halloween.
Jason Torchinsky realized that although it would be difficult to steal the space shuttle Endeavour from Los Angeles, it was not, technically speaking impossible. The heist will just require some creative thinking, a bit of luck and some money. Read his step-by-step plan at the link.
Fifty years ago, the rugby team of the Portsmouth Grammar School in Hampshire, UK posed for a photo. They went their separate ways, but all sixteen members survived the years and returned to update their picture. The odds were astronomical:
The odds of all of the original first team being alive to meet for the milestone anniversary was worked out at 256,000 to one. [...]
The old boys met the school's current first 15 rugby team and watch them play against Churchers College, from Petersfield, Hants.
In a bid to create a legacy and encourage current teams to stay in touch, the 1962 team presented the current team with a trophy - a rugby ball which they had all signed.

Little Benjamin is a man of style. Specifically, Gangnam Style. His father Andrew Tsai learned that the reliable way of getting him to eat when he isn't in the mood to play the video for the child.
A week ago, I showed my kids how to dance Gangnam Style. My two-year old was impressed. My four-year old was so appalled that I had to stop halfway through the video before she started crying.
Clearly I need to practice more.
Bruce Bump is a master craftsman of knives, axes and cominbations thereof with guns. His gallery is simply breathtaking. This piece is typical. It has an engraved 3000-layer folding blade and a .22 caliber muzzle loading black powder pistol. The trigger and hammer are gold plated and the handle is pre-ban ivory.
And it's designed for more than just recreation. Andy Keel, the inventor of the motocrossboard, sees it as an excellent vehicle for military forces. Keel envisions future soldiers moving rapidly through enemy territory on motorcrossboards while shooting at foes. At the link, you can see more pictures and a video of one man using it to play paintball.
The son of Instructables member raptor23 is now ready to puff around Sodor. Thomas the Tank Engine will take him everywhere in this bed that his father made. If he removes the boiler behind Thomas's face, he can also find many of his toys in a built-in chest.
Etsy seller Cricket Willis painted this fake pumpkin with ultraviolet paint that glows under black light. At her shop you can also find a cow vertebra painted with the silhouettes of curvaceous women and hilariously entitled "Baby's Got Back."
Nothing sets the mood for a Halloween party like a severed hand left in the food. But for some of us, acquiring one can difficult. Here's an alternative made by Megan of Not Martha. Onions serve in place of fingernails and wristbones and melted sliced cheese gives the impression of burned human skin. You can find her full recipe at the link.
If you want to order the new pizza at Salvatore's, you'll have to show ID to prove that you're at least 21. That's because the Boston eatery is now serving pizza that's cooked with vodka. Chef Victor Paone describes it:
“We got some dried Italian cherries, and we cooked them, and they were too tough,” Paone told the Herald. “Obviously, we had to soak them a little, so I decided to soak them in raspberry vodka.”
The result was Vignola Cherry Pizza, which also is topped with fresh mozzarella, Gorgonzola, prosciutto and orange blossom honey. [...]
Two more 21-plus pies will be added to Salvatore’s menu in mid-October. The Drunken Pig comes with Kahlua-marinated braised pork, ricotta cheese, caramelized Granny Smith apples, mozzarella cheese and spicy hot honey, while Calabria Peach is topped with rum-infused fresh peaches, mascarpone, soppressata picante, fresh mozzarella and basil.
Alicia Follmar, a student at Stanford University, fell hard early in a race. Then several runners ran over her. Most people would then quit. But Alicia Follmar is not most people. She stood up and, though bloody, bruised and in great pain, started running again:
As she powered her way from 10th to third over the remaining two laps, she ran into Internet-lauded fame. There's far more to the two-event All-American than that one race, but no pictures of her are anywhere near as memorable.
“I wouldn't say it was as bad as it looks . . . . I can't say it really hurt, there was so much adrenaline,” says Follmar, now a senior. “There was a feeling that I had in my head—like a sensation in my head—so I felt my head with my hand and looked at it, and there was blood on it. At that point, I was already running. I kind of panicked, but I still kept running.” Stanford finished third.
If you've watched the nature series Spongebob Squarepants, you may be under the impression that starfish are gentle, harmless creatures. But they're not. Starfish are effective predators against immobile species. Researchers placed a tiny camera inside a mussel. Watch a starfish digest its victim from close range. The starfish pours caustic chemicals into the shell, then injects its own stomach inside the shell to digest the soupy mass that remains.
The Porter Revolving Turret Rifle was an experimental firearm from the 1850s. P.W. Porter designed it to fill a demand for repeating rifles during the percussion cap era. It featured multiple chambers that could be cycled vertically before the user needed to reload.
There was a significant design flaw. Chain fire--that is, sparking between chambers--could cause multiple chambers to discharge simultaneously. One of those chambers is pointed at the user's face.
Comedian Tom Mabe got a realistic baby doll, placed it in a baby sling, then went to very baby-inappropriate places and did baby-inappropriate things. Like going to bars and riding skateboards.
