What if guy BFFs acted like girl BFFs? It would be weirdly creepy, that’s what

Milo Sumner Contributor

By Milo Sumner in Video on Wednesday 27 August 2014

Let’s be honest here: men are from mars and women are from venus. Or something like that. At any rate there are some whoppingly irreconcilable differences between how males friends act with each other and how female friends act with each other [watch the video here].

By Inigo del Castillo in New Eco on Tuesday 26 August 2014

Prepare to meet the so-called Lamborghini of Poultry. This is the Ayam Cemani Chicken of Indonesia. It’s a rare breed of chicken, and you can probably see why. Everything about it is black: plumage, beak, tongue, legs, toe nails, even its meat, bones, and organs! The only thing that is black is its blood – though it comes in a very dark shade.

Milo Sumner Contributor

By Milo Sumner in New Photography on Tuesday 26 August 2014
