A fight at the Ukrainian Parliament transformed into a Caravaggio-like painting… that’s why we love the internet. :-D

Sometimes you have an itch you just have to scratch - in this elephant’s case on a conveniently parked car. The VW Polo and its two terrified occupants found themselves in the wrong place at the wrong time as the giant ellie stooped down to rub itself against the vehicle’s roof and bonnet. The incredible images were taken by Armand Grobler, 21, a field guide and lodge manager, in Pilanesburg National Park, South Africa. The two passengers were shaken up, but escaped without injury - although the same could not be said for their car. But after giving itself a good scratch, the elephant continued on it’s way itch free.

Sometimes I just feel inexplicably guilty for all the plants I’ve neglected to death. 


New superhero comic, Spark!



Hey, everyone! This is the creator of Little Girls Are Better At Designing Superheroes Than You, here with a post I thought you all might like. Writer Ted Anderson and I have made a pitch for a superhero comic!

The comic is about nine-year-old Lucia Marquez-Miller, who loves engineering, and uses her telekinetic powers to build and take things apart with her mind. She calls this power her spark!

As Spark, the world’s youngest superhero, she’s a junior member of a superhero team while also trying to live a normal life. Can Lucia juggle her friends and family while also saving the world from supervillains?

We’re posting a 15-page standalone comic here on tumblr to give readers an idea of what the book would be like.

Jason David Frank (played the Green Power Ranger) is breaking boards with his fists while skydiving. He does this because it popped into his head one day and it is self-inherently awesome.  

Pretty boxes on the hillside, pretty boxes made of ticky-tacky…

I saw Man Man once again at the High Dive here in Champaign. They had the fewest number I’ve ever seen them preform with, but it’s not like that was going to hold them back. Man Man  always puts on a great show and impresses the hell out of people.
