Ed Annunziata, the creator of Sega’s Ecco the Dolphin series, once tweeted that while he himself has never taken LSD, he did draw inspiration from the work of neuroscientist John C. Lilly when conceptualizing his cosmic cetaceans. Back in the 1960s, Lilly ran a NASA-funded research unit where humans attempted to communicate with dolphins. Somewhere along the line, LSD got thrown into the mix, a researcher became sexually involved with a dolphin, and things generally got a bit weird.

Art and science come together when Robert Hurt and Tim Pyle visualize scientific data into photorealistic works of art.
The human mind can get a very scientific explanation of what a discovery was but it takes a visual to get the point across. As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words.

First, we have a very clever Korean product. It's a little gross to watch but even more unbelievable that it worked.
Next, we have another creative method, however it does have its limitations because it can only be used once per toilet.

Some people see faces in everything—in clouds, in the arrangement of faucets on a sink, on a power socket, and on the facade of a building. But the enormous face on this 32-story apartment building at the Carlton end of Swanston Street, in Melbourne, is not an illusion. The face has actually been sculpted on to the building's southern and eastern facades by the creative use of negative spaces formed by white balconies against black windows.

Solves that age-old bathing dilemma and adds a "hole" new dimension of "pleasure" and fun to your shower or bath.
Just a few quick "strokes" of the Weener Kleener will clean and sanitize most appendages.
The Weener Kleener soap cleans the body but dirties the mind. You'll be showering twice daily with your new bath time toy. This stimulating soap ring makes a great gag gift for a boyfriend or adds some hilarity to some poor guy who just got dumped.

The AV Club takes a loving look at Night Court in its retrospective series 100 Episodes which examines TV shows that have managed to surpass the triple-digit count.
The weather outside is miserable and you have a bunch of kids over. How to keep them occupied with mostly household items that you have on hand? Make toys for them, of course.

Remember the good ol' days when real books were a thing? Well, Gary Larson sold MILLIONS of them full of these hilarious comics. He called his series "The Far Side."
If you find yourself laughing as you scroll, share these with your friends.

Long-tailed macaques living near an Indonesian temple have figured out how to run a ransom racket on visiting tourists. The monkeys grab valuables, such as glasses, hats, cameras or, in one case, a wad of cash from the ticket booth, then wait for temple staff to offer them food before dropping their ill-gotten gains and dashing off with the tasty prize.

When you see a list of trivia about the states, you are sure to hear about the most famous facts; you know, the ones you've heard so many times.
Wendover productions has some facts about all the 50 states, but these are not the facts you've heard before nor the order you would expect them to come to you.

There’s a video going around the Internet of a balance-bike race in Japan. A long row of pre-school-aged kids, aboard low-slung bikes with no brakes or pedals, takes off from a start ramp like a pack of greyhounds. The kids kick their bikes up to speeds that would make most adults uncomfortable, and carve through the course’s maze of sharp corners with tenacity and grace.
Would you subject your three year-old to something like this?

Sure, we've all seen old metal signs posted on trees and the glorious woody trunks begin to engulf them over time. Here is a group that has posted a gallery of them, and many other items (e.g. fences, chains, stairways, etc.)

NASA’s Juno Spacecraft is investigating Jupiter in a series of 37 orbits, and though images, data, and samples, these remarkable flybys have revealed some very cool things: 900 mile wide cyclones at the planet’s poles, an interior core that “appears bigger than expected“, and a magnetic field that’s ten times stronger than Earth’s… that’s two times more powerful than predicted. Plus, there’s more data to come. From The New York Times:
Juno takes 53 days to loop around Jupiter in a highly elliptical orbit, but most of the data gathering occurs in two-hour bursts when it accelerates to 129,000 miles an hour and dives to within about 2,600 miles of the cloud tops. The spacecraft’s instruments peer far beneath, giving glimpses of the inside of the planet, the solar system’s largest.
