You Will Never Want To Bounce These Stunning Leather Basketballs

Most of us don’t mind playing with a basketball made from synthetic materials because they’re just going to get all scuffed up on the court, and they’re cheap. That being said, there are always those who prefer the finer things in life, and for them a game of hoops is only enjoyable when played with a ball made from the finest embossed Italian leathers.


These Beautiful Paintings Feel Like 1980s Sci-Fi Film Concept Art

I’m so in love with the amazing paintings of Simon Stålenhag. So much that I’m posting about him again. There’s something about his aesthetics that remind me of the sci-fi movies from the 1980s — the combination of colour, everyday suburbia scenes, and the kids wandering around his world.


Building The World's Largest Floating Object, In GIFs

A few months ago, The New York Times sent a photographer to South Korea to photograph the world’s largest floating object. It took him hundreds of shots to capture the behemoth. Now, its makers are giving us a closer look at building of the ship.


Spectacular Photo Of Aeroplane Flying By Volcano's Molten Lava Eruption

I don’t know if I would be happy to fly so close of an active volcano that is ejecting lava like in this photo featured on National Geographic’s Your Shot. I know the plane is not flying over the lava, but you never know when Earth is going to get mad. For photographer Baldur Sveinsson, however, it’s business as usual.

Hot Toys' Temple Of Doom Indiana Jones Doesn't Come With A Single Snake

The tiny sixth-scale fedora alone makes Hot Toys’ Indiana Jones figure a worthy addition to any collection. But as with all the plastic doppelgangers the company sells, everything from the convincing Harrison Ford sculpt, to his tired and torn outfit, to Indy’s other iconic accessory, his whip, make this $US230 figure worth every cent.


Here's Some New Game Of Thrones Season 5 Footage

HBO has very slowly teased and trickled footage from Game of Thrones season 5 with a secret website and now this new elaborate seemingly self-destructing mobile-only video teaser. Luckily, the footage — which could only play once and not be screenshotted — was leaked online and we have a few more seconds to get excited.


Just A Couple Of Dudes Building Sauron's Mace From Lord Of The Rings

With the final (supposedly) Hobbit movie on its way, a few modern day blacksmiths have decided celebrate by forging some good, old-fashioned Middle Earth weaponry. This is how you build a mace worthy of the second Dark Lord himself.


The Flu Shot Isn't A Good Match This Year. Is It Ever?

The CDC announced recently that this year’s flu vaccine is missing a key strain, one that accounts for 48 per cent of what’s circulating. That strain, a “drifted” version of H3N2, was discovered in March 2014, but the vaccine strains for the Northern hemisphere, including the US, had been decided a month earlier. (The Southern hemisphere vaccine will include the drifted strain.)
