Staffordshire, England-based sculptor Robin Wight created these intricate wire sculptures after witnessing a real life fairy in person (More on that in a bit.) The stainless steel fairies, despite the tough material that they’re made from, appear to be graceful living, breathing creatures at play with dandelions.
There are cats. And then, there are awkwardly sitting cats — balancing themselves delicately with feline bums firmly planted on the floor, chair, bed, whatever — looking down in the dumps, lost in the woods, startled, or just… awkward.

Yes, this is now happening in a Tokyo museum: an interactive exhibition about poop, toilets and all that sort of thing. Even space toilets are featured.

Now that there is something you should definitely add to your travel bucket list! Chefchaouen is a surreal town in Morocco’s Rif Mountains. Amidst idyllic valleys and gorgeous hillsides, you can see the place has one very distinct and memorable feature: the color blue.

Cats are hardly ordinary creatures, and Venus, a cat living in North Carolina, is even more extraordinary. The chimera cat is, as her Facebook fan page states, ‘0% Photoshopped, 100% Born This Way’.
Wow, looks like we’ll have to summon a whole lot of guts to eat these chocolate skulls by Manchester-based Etsy seller BlackChocolateCo: not only are they anatomically accurate and true to life-size, they are also hand cast from a mould of an actual human skull. Uh huh, that’s credibility.

A bunch of psychologists from Staffordshire’s Keele University recently presented the findings of a study to a British Psychological Society conference, suggesting that shooting off profanities can help with emotional resilience.
