i made this gif about the nice feeling of making a thing and rolling it into / through the world. it’s also about concentrating on making a good project, vs trying to make a successful project. it’s about being in globetrotter mode rather than…
A cancer sufferer travelled thousands of miles across China to buy a two-legged goat that walks on its hind legs because he admires its strong spirit. Wang Xinmin, who suffers from lymphoma, journeyed from his hometown in Fuyang in eastern China’s Anhui Province to buy the animal for 4,500 Yuan (£450) in Zhoukou in Henan Province. The 31-year-old made the decision after reading a newspaper report about how the goat had taught itself to walk after being born with only two hind legs.

Cave diver Dave Bunnel, 61, captured these stunning images of him diving into Mexico’s El Sotano de las Golodrinas, The Basement of Swallows — - a 1,200-foot-deep hole in Mexico that is so deep, clouds form inside. The pit was first descended in December of 1967 by a trio of Americans. Its total depth is 1,638ft although the final few hundred feet accessible are only accessible through a pit series called The Crevice. It gets its name, the Basement of Swallows, thanks to the birds that fly above its opening.

A comic about why witches are stereotyped as riding broom:
Apparently once upon a time there was an ointment one could rub on a broom - that was most popular amongst herbalists (such as many witches) - that was a hallucinogenic. One would ride the broom for masturbating purposes and the ointment would be absorbed through the mucus membrane of the vagina and give the rider a sensation of flying.
Eyes have now joined the long list of objects that can be printed in 3D, thanks to the ingenuity of British designers. London-based Fripp Design and Research collaborated with Manchester Metropolitan University to produce prosthetic eyes that are barely distinguishable from the real thing. What’s more, they can produce around 150 in an hour at a fraction of the cost of eyes made by hand, the method currently used to craft them. Hand-painted eyes take a very long time to produce and cost around £3,000 each. Fripp Design can make them for £100. It also prints flexible facial prosthetics to support the eye.
