Victorian Laptop!
This may look like a Victorian music box, but inside this intricately hand-crafted wooden case lives a Hewlett-Packard ZT1000 laptop that runs both Windows XP and Ubuntu Linux. It features an elaborate display of clockworks under glass, engraved brass accents, claw feet, an antiqued copper keyboard and mouse, leather wrist pads, and customized wireless network card. picked by TheShirtPocket 4 years ago

 Built w/Food: 10 Works of (Incr)Edible Architecture
Built w/Food: 10 Works of (Incr)Edible Architecture
If only the world of Willy Wonka were real, with skyscrapers made from caramels, chocolate rivers and cities built of shortcake and whipped cream. Living in an edible world is only a dream, but these 10 examples of architecture made from food show that smaller scale versions can be almost as fun. picked by AutumnLotus 3 years ago

 Riggs named most 'Beautiful Bulldog'
Riggs named most 'Beautiful Bulldog'
Riggs hardly looks or acts like a beauty king. A 3-year-old male bulldog, Riggs is a drooler with protruding teeth and a penchant for attacking noisy appliances, begging for crumbs and hopping on furniture. picked by AutumnLotus 4 years ago

 Victorian Flea Circuses: A Lost Art Form?
Victorian Flea Circuses: A Lost Art Form?
The flea circus sounds funny, but it was once a serious (if strange) performance type. The fleas are actually trained to 'behave' and 'perform' in certain ways - even harnessed with tiny wires. In this day and age, there are some who say that a flea circus constitutes animal cruelty. Either way, these images and this history are amazing picked by bingo 3 years ago
