Sometimes when humans migrate, to an island for instance, they bring animals with them that aren't native to the destination, and the balance of nature becomes severely out of whack.
Visit the seven islands featured and you'll find a whole lot of one kind of animal, from the cats of Tashirojima, Japan to Kaua'i, the chicken island of Hawaii. It's an extremely photogenic crime against nature!

Virgil knows how to get an all-ages party started- with a party keg full of his famous root beer! It's hardly the size of a keg by frat house standards, but a gallon and a half of root beer is definitely enough to get the kids all fired up and ready to burn some Barbie dolls.
These horrifying masks aren't from Halloween, they're actually worn as part of a Christmas festivity called Wilde Jagd which is celebrated in parts of Europe.
Here's more on this fascinating festival:

Robots in Gastronomy want to bring their delicious 3D printed chocolate art to the people, so they built this unique looking cart to drive their MakerBot 3D printer around town.
They premiered their chocolate printing cart at the Istanbul Design Biennial in October, and hope to have these wooden art carts ready to hit the streets by 2013.
If the shape of the cart doesn't get people's attention the chocolate treats it prints out certainly will, read on at the link below if you want to see the kind of sugary goodness this crafty cart will be printing for the people.
A first grader in Redditor dalekmania's elementary school class either took the idea of writing letters to Santa literally, or came up with the clever notion that asking for every letter of the alphabet thrice would guarantee lots of presents under the tree. Hopefully that kid really likes alphabet blocks and fridge magnets!
Are you tired of feeling grounded while you're sitting on your duff?
Plant your kiester on the 1001 chair and you'll feel like you're surfing on a cloud, as 90 elastic rods suspend you above the ground in floating comfort.
The chair was created by Thomas Hiemann and Markus Dilger, and so far they have no plans to manufacture the chair, but maybe public interest via the interwebs will convince them to get these neat seats into retail stores so we can all float on.
Most people are content with putting up some lights and maybe a decoration or two in honor of Christmas, but not the superfans in this gallery of photos by Jesse Rieser entitled Christmas In America: Happy Birthday Jesus.
