Add Celestial Lighting To Your Home With These Beautiful Moon Lamps

If levitating disc lamps aren’t your bag, how about a giant, luminescent moon-shaped one instead? It can go pretty much anywhere — hanging from your roof, off the edge of a hill or even down a manhole. It’s just that versatile. It also illuminates stuff while looking rather sweet.

A Pool Floatie That Explodes From Your Wrist Like A Jack-in-the-Box

A Motorised Automatic Umbrella Is The Best Kind Of Overkill

What’s the top hit for a Google search of “Greek bailout”? Depressingly, it’s not a thorough economic analysis of how to get Greece out of debt. It’s a goofy Indiegogo campaign to crowdfund €1.6 billion. And the campaign is fast approaching €1 million.

Someone Is Trying To Crowdfund A Greek Bailout Because Why Not

Greece is not doing well financially at the moment, to put it mildly. The country is broke and can’t repay its IMF loan, which is due tomorrow. So some folks are trying to help bail the country out in the way that the internet loves best: A silly crowdfunding campaign!
