The stars were brightly shining in Durham, North Carolina, when three women obsessed with Jell-O mounted a pop-up museum exhibition of molded foods. Your grandmama's green "congealed salad" was one thing - but you've never seen the likes of these creations from chefs, home cooks, and one punk-rock bass player.
A report of a tiger running amok in the streets of Manhattan briefly caused a social media frenzy early Thursday, as reporters scrambled to find photos of the ferocious feline and warn civilians to stay out of the area. Turns out, it was a raccoon.

So the past few days on my commute to work, I've noticed a new store opened up on my route. The big black and yellow sign announcing CRIME SCENE caught my attention and I had to look it up online once I got to the office. It's exactly what you'd think it would be. Neat.

NASA has two teams of researchers working to design a robotic bee that can fly on Mars. The space agency announced the project on March 30. It's in its early stages, but the idea is to replace modern rovers - which are slow, bulky and very expensive - with swarms of sensor-studded, fast-moving micro-bots that can cover much more ground at a relatively low cost.

Write songs as the ones who inspired you before. The Songwriters fonts have been created to give musicians inspiration. Writing lyrics with the handwriting of influential songwriters helps imagination to develop. Being in the mood of Bowie, Cobain, Cohen, Gainsbourg, Lennon, might be purely imaginative... but that's precisely the point.
Each "bird" follows a fairly simple set of rules: Each bird has a velocity, direction, and an angle and accelerates or decelerates a small percentage at a time. They will accelerate when it is going towards its destination, and decelerate when it is going away. Each one decides if it should turn left or right, or up or down, depending which way is best.
Very literally raised by wolves, the now-72-years-old Marcos finds himself stuck between two worlds, being fully accepted neither by humanity nor his wolfen brethren... and it sucks.
When DC Comics announced its new slate of comics based on classic Hanna-Barbera cartoons, no one was really sure what to make of it. Next to no one thought that The Flintstones was going to be the breakout book of the bunch, much less one of the best comics of the year. But writer Mark Russell and artist Steve Pugh's darkly comic take on stone-age modern life manages to be funny, poignant and compelling with every issue. I never thought I'd say this, but you should check out this fantastic Flintstones comic.

Perched on the tip of a fjord on the Scandinavian country's western coast, Ureddplassen is a "wave-shaped toilet" with a viewing terrace that confronts the wide, open Norwegian Sea. The snow-capped mountains of the Lofoten Wall frame the vista.

Like the garden follies that dotted English country estates in the 18th and 19th centuries, this backyard pavilion in London's St. John’s Wood neighborhood is part sculpture and part shelter. Nestled inside a walled garden behind a 1950s terrace house, it serves as both a garden shed and an office for its owner, earning it the nickname "the shoffice."

Spread out across the Bolivian highlands, at 4,000 meters, the city of El Alto is predominantly ochre-red, with thousands of low, matchbox-like brick houses with unfinished and unpainted facades lining the sides of dusty, unpaved roads. It's so drab and monotonous and depressing that residents have started to liven things up by adding splashes of color wherever they could. They have also started to design their houses into bizarre shapes.

"I have been wearing scrunchies for years," the 85-year-old Supreme Court Justice told the Wall Street Journal on March 19. "My best scrunchies come from Zurich. Next best, London, and third best, Rome."

By day, a steady stream of tourists came, posing for pictures (and peeking in the windows) dressed in the free costumes provided by the visitor center - calico smocks with cameos, overalls and black jackets, even the spectacles - and wielding pitchforks of all sizes. They brought their own props, which included a prized Harley Davidson, a fleet of Stanley steam cars, and a herd of llamas. It was the centerpiece of a Klingon calendar shoot, a bare-chested rock band's album cover, a marriage proposal, a family reunion - a gamut of creativity daily.
