This is a boat worthy of a James Bond chase sequence. The world’s most expensive yacht, a staggering 4.5 billion dollars, is covered in over 200,000 pounds of gold and platinum. The 100-foot-long super yacht came from the mind of UK designer Stuart Hughes. He calls it the “History Supreme”. More than half the boat […]

A couple wanted to do something interesting with a dying ash tree in their back yard. Instead of watching it slowly decay and disappear completely, they wanted something that could stand the test of time. So they paid an artist to carve a topless mermaid.

In 1949, a Danish toy company called LEGO began making a line of interlocking plastic blocks called “Automatic Binding Bricks.” Each block had round plastic studs on top that fit snugly into the completely hollow rectangular undersides of other blocks. A good idea, sure, but it wasn’t LEGO who actually came up with it. In […]

A group of street artists in Sofia, Bulgaria painted over a Soviet monument. The anti-communist group transformed the war memorial into a comic art scene of superheroes.

Remember when you were a kid, and you would get your hands on a bucket of that really fat sidewalk chalk? The kids on my block would use it to do really creative stuff like write their names in cursive or draw flowers and hopscotch grids—even though it was the 1980s not the 1940s, and […]
