Big Yellow Rabbit

A Big Yellow Rabbit has invaded a Swedish city. There he is, above, relaxing in his new home. It may not be a surprise to hear, however, that this piece of installation art has split the local community down the middle. Yet love it or hate it, the Big Yellow Rabbit of Örebro in Sweden demands attention. The town is in the middle of its annual open art festival and among many others this year it attracted Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman who already has something of a reputation for the sensation that his art creates. Made from wood and painstakingly constructed over a number of days, Hofman’s big yellow rabbit has attracted many fans.” w/ photos

Top 10 Most Technophobic Movies

“Technophobia is a pretty easy word to break down: fear of technology, specifically of advanced computers or other devices and a belief that they will lead to humanity’s ruin. Although a technophobe sounds like a neo-Luddite, it actually goes a lot deeper than that. What’s more, technophobia pops up in movies far more often than you might think. The easy target when it comes to tech-based movies are those films that show an egregious misunderstanding of how the Internet works, or that show older generations struggling to get along in a digital age. But real technophobia deals with tech gone awry, taking over a person or city or world in order to execute its own lethal agenda. The films [here] are some of the most technophobic ever made, though some of the titles might surprise you. Next time you’re at the movies, keep an eye out for the real villain.” w/ videos”

‪Moving In Korea‬‏

“How moving companies solve the problem of transporting a bed/couch/dresser to the 12th floor of an apartment complex. Entertaining to watch and highly efficient. These dudes (maybe two or three total) moved an entire truck full of furniture and boxes in less than three hours. Super impressive.” — hippykiller1

Giraffe-Necked Antelope

Found in Eastern Africa ranging from Somalia to Kenya there is a slightly odd looking long-necked creature that is reminiscent of a giraffe but that is one thing it most certainly is not. With large eyes and ears and an incredibly slender neck, you may be forgiven for thinking that the Giraffe-necked Antelope was actually thought up in the Disney Studio rather than occurring in the wild steppes of East Africa. This unusual and elegant beast is a great survivor – and it possibly owes its continued existence to its wonderfully long neck. When you realize how high the animals stretches in order to feed, you can imagine many an African folk-story being handed down through the generations to explain how it came to get that way.” w/ photos
