Unlucky Ginger Kitty

A terrified tomcat roamed the streets for several days – with an arrow pierced through his torso. The ginger moggy, now dubbed Cupid, was speared by a bolt that tore right through his muscles and one shoulder blade. Miraculously the stray survived because it did not hit any of his vital organs. Residents in east Houston, Texas, took him to Brittmore Animal Hospital so the weapon could be removed. He is now recuperating at animal rescue group Purr Paws, who has said he will be put up for adoption once he is fully fit.” w/ photos + video

Russia’s Dead City

Reaching Dargavs, the City of the Dead, entails a three-hour journey through winding, narrow roads, and several hills. The foggy mountain weather certainly doesn’t help matters. Once there, you’ll find that the city is in fact another hill covered with small white buildings. It is these very buildings that cause the place to get it’s name. The white house-like structures, countless in number, are stone crypts where locals buried their loved ones. The city itself is an ancient Ossetian cemetery. Each family of the area has a crypt, and the higher the structure, the greater the number of people buried in it. The oldest of the crypts dates back to the 16th century.” w/ photos

Braille Burgers

“Wimpy wanted to let visually impaired people know that they offered braille menus in all of their restaurants. To spread the word we built braille burgers that blind people could actually read. With the help of skilled chefs we took sesame seeds and meticulously placed them on burger buns so that the seeds formed braille.” — DaleMullany
