What They Created Using Just Magnets And Marbles Will Leave You Hypnotized

Videos like the one below make me wonder where people like Kaplamino get all their free time… But no matter how jealous I am of their creativity and patience, I’m more mesmerized than anything. As a kid, I played with LEGOs and dominoes, but this epic arrangement of blocks, magnets, and marbles takes that tinkering to a whole new level. Sit back and prepare to be seriously impressed… I can’t even begin to imagine how long it took him to make this, especially when you consider that […]

These 11 Schemes Were Meant To Kill And Shame Fidel Castro, But They All Failed

Before Fidel Castro died of failing health on Friday, November 25, he survived an incredible 638 assassination attempts. The attempts were planned and executed during Castro’s reign as President of Cuba from 1975 to 2008. Ironically, it was the dictator’s own vices and failing health that led him to turn over power to his younger brother, Raúl Castro, in 2008. However, for 33 years, he managed to survive one attempt to kill and shame him after another. He once said, “If surviving assassination attempts were an Olympic […]

You Throw These Out Every Day, But She Gives Them New Life As Beautiful Art

When it comes to drinking tea, there’s nothing more satisfying than getting that nasty little tea bag out of your mug and into the garbage can. Even though they steep into something that we all love, the little packets are less than appealing when they become saturated messes. But artist Ruby Silvious could not agree with that statement less. The Tacloban City-born creator has a passion for repurposing what most of us see as trash into evocative works of art, and one of her collections — fittingly […]

This Looks Like A Supernova, But It’s Really Just Ink In Water — Incredible!

French independent filmmaker Thomas Vanz‘s short movie, “Novae,” features some seriously striking supernova imagery. A supernova is an event where a star explodes and dies, creating a massive explosion in space. This happens when a significant change occurs in a star’s core. While it’s not often that we are able to see them in our galaxy, you could swear that Vanz documented one himself or used computer-generated images in the film. However, all he needed to capture this stunning footage was an aquarium, ink, and water. Pretty […]

This Artist’s Inspirational Mission Redefines The Concepts Of Shame And Memory

Art is often thought about from the perspective of the viewer. It makes sense, because viewership is the practice of many, and creation is the practice of relatively few. But let’s take a step back and consider the fact that creative work lives a long, unseen life before it ends up in front of us. In many ways, what goes into the creation of a piece is far more profound than anything we could possibly take away from it. Artist Stephanie Calvert is more than a little […]

Your Kid Is Going To Have The Coolest Lunch Ever When You Use These Mason Jar Tricks

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DTAT_ATF’); }); When you’re a kid, the stuff you bring to school — from supplies to lunches — is a major determining factor in your coolness level. At my elementary school, lunchtime gave kids plenty of opportunities to climb the social ladder. Pizza, cupcakes, cookies — these were all prime trading materials, and Lunchables were considered the food of the gods. Let’s be honest, though. Lunchables are still pretty amazing when you’re an adult. Having all your food perfectly laid out and just waiting for […]

Despite living in the heart of a school district, my house never sees many, if any trick-or-treaters. With that said, my parents and I still buy loads of candy, just in case. However, more often than not we end up eating most of the candy ourselves. Even if […]

It Looks Like Water, But If You Touched It, It Would Probably Make You Very Sick

Mercury, as we all know, doesn’t do great things to the human body. Enough exposure to the substance can cause some serious damage, which makes it all the more shocking that an artist in Barcelona decided to construct this breathtaking fountain. While it looks pretty normal at first, this thing spews out liquid mercury. (source: mercuremiro) That really is some fine engineering work. The fountain is fortunately housed behind some thick glass to prevent the fumes from killing passersby. Read more: http://www.viralnova.com/mercury-fountain/
