Artist Creates Sculptures From Cardboard

From typewriters to trumpets, this artist really does think outside of the box – by creating amazing sculptures from everyday cardboard. Using material similar to the card at the back of a notebook, Kiel Johnson creates stunning $6,544 works of art. The LA-based artist has sold pieces to the likes of comic actor Steve Martin as well as art lovers across the US, but still gives the public a chance to pick up his skills. The 36-year-old takes his unique talent round colleges and schools and teaches others how to create scenes such as a robot prom dance out of cardboard.” w/ photos

64-Year-Old Tub Of Lard Found Still Edible

A German pensioner who had kept a tub of lard in his cupboard for 64 years, took it to authorities who pronounced it very much fit for consumption — if a little tasteless. Retired chemist Hans Feldmeier, 87, told AFP he had received the pig fat as a student in 1948 near the northern city of Rostock as part of the post-war US aid programme. Feldmeier said he had been given the tub together with two tins of noodles and some milk. “I just didn’t want to throw it away,” he explained. Finally, after 64 years, he took it to food safety agents and was astonished at their appraisal.” w/ photos
