Lovely little bits of real art like watercolor of a moped this are for sale in the park outside Santo Domingo in Oaxaca. I buy them when I can.
Gravity bike. This is a sport?
Which leads to this Flickr set — FreakBikes. That’ll do.
Underwater shots of Beluga whales at a sanctuary created by the University of St. Petersburg.
Culture and Society

Oddities created by collage. Victorian era ladies (and gents) spent hours creating humorous images using paper, scissors, and paste. Children using frogs for rocking horses just about covers it. More behind the “view more images” link.

Making it through the week m’dears.
Yesterday was the Apocalypse. Today we have a serious problem.
