This Artist’s Amazing Mini-Worlds Are A Window Into Her Soul

Photo by JeeYoung Lee

South Korean artist JeeYoung Lee creates amazing mini-worlds from her dreams, memory and imagination — building them in a tiny 10 x 19ft (3 x 6 m) room. She then photographs them and presents them to the world exactly as they are, with no photoshop or editing whatsoever. Each picture is exactly how she created the room in real life, and is a tiny glimpse inside her super-creative mind captured in time. Some of the rooms take months to build before they are exactly how she wants them, with incredible attention to detail and complexity. She then places herself in each scene before a photo is taken to capture the idea […]

This Stray Dog Joined An Adventure Racing Team. What Happened Will Warm Your Heart.

Dog Arthur joins adventure race 2

Adventure racing is one of the hardest sports in the world — and the races don’t come any harder than the world championships. But this year’s event in Ecuador wasn’t going to be any normal event for the Swedish Peak Performance-sponsored team. It all started when the captain, Mikael Lindnord, decided to share a meatball with a stray dog who was hanging around their camp before a super-tough 40km trek through the jungle in the latter stages of the six-day race. After setting off with the other groups everything at first seemed normal, but when the groups spread out the team realised they now had a fifth member of their team. The brave […]

What This Woman Caught On Camera Is Shocking. But We All Do It.

Hayley Morris Cafiero Wait Watchers

Photographer Hayley Morris-Cafiero has suffered a lot of cruelty and taunts because of her weight. And after being inspired by a photo she took in New York she has begun taking photos of herself that capture people’s reactions to her size. In her photos she doesn’t do anything strange or eye-catching, but just goes about her business as everyone should be allowed to. She then checks the photos to see how people react to her as they pass her in the street. Her project, Wait Watchers, started after she looked at the photo she took in New York and noticed a man standing behind her, who appeared to be smirking at her. […]

When You Go To China, You REALLY Don’t Know What You’re Eating

Funny chinese food names

The Chinese are notorious for having some bizarre ingredients in their food — but this restaurant in the country has taken things to another level. The owners did their best to translate the menu for hungry English-speaking tourists. But despite their efforts, they haven’t made things much clearer. Some things have definitely been lost in translation — and when they really don’t know what something is, it seems they just call it ‘sweet and sour pork ribs’. Hey, who can blame them — everybody likes sweet and sour pork ribs, right? The question is, if you sat down at this restaurant and were presented with its lip-smacking menu, which one would […]

You Won’t Believe These 5 People Existed. But They Did, And Their Stories Are Incredible.

Historic abnormalities 2

These five people suffered from some of the most remarkable medical abnormalities ever recorded. Alive during the late 1800s and 1900s, they were all medical mysteries of their time. But inside they were just normal people wanting normal lives and to be given the chance to work and earn a living. 1. Ella Harper had a rare condition that meant her knees bent backwards. She was nicknamed the ‘Camel Girl’ because she preferred to walk around on all fours.   Ella, who was born in 1870, spent her early years as a circus performer, earning $200 a week, which was a lot of money at the time and would have opened […]

This Town’s Walmart Was Left Abandoned. What They Did To It Is Just Amazing

WalMart library

Walmart is everywhere — small towns, cities, and suburbs. And because of the firm’s very nature they require massive buildings to house their goods. But sometimes a Walmart has to close. What do you do then? Rather than let the enormous building fall into disrepair and become a white elephant in the town, officials in McAllen, Texas, did something awesome. They totally transformed the dilapidated old building into a library — the largest single-floor public library in America. The Walmart closed down and was left abandoned. It could have ended up as a pile of rubble. But instead officials turned it into an enormous public library to help the community. […]

At First I Thought This Was Just A Normal Town. Then I Realized What I was Seeing. Whoa!

Home 1

Michael Paul Smith loves mid-20th century America. He loves the old cars and the old vistas. He also loves making models and photography. So he combined the three and what he came up with is one of the most beautiful visual representations of American nostalgia you will ever see.

Life can be hard sometimes. But there is always a way to overcome the odds. Things are never as bad as they seem. This young guy was bullied badly as a child — with other kids calling “four-eyes” because he wore glasses and branding him a nerd. But he embraced his nerdiness, stayed strong, and carried on through life until he found something amazing. Here is his story, in his own words… I started wearing glasses since the age of four. When I was young, I remember being called “four-eyes.” In retrospect, it sounds like a pretty cool thing to be called, like I have a super hero power or […]
