Step 1. Make a 42,000 Matchstick Sphere

Step 2. Light that sucker on fire. Enjoy!

Quoting from the video description:

What happens when you start gluing matches together? Because the heads are slightly wider than the wooden bodies, they begin to form a sphere. This was an experiment in how many matches it would take to get all the way around to make a perfect globe. After months of gluing and gluing and gluing we made it to the other side. Then the experiment shifted to see what it would look like when this thing burned.

Decorative ‘Steampunk’ Skull Includes a Secret Compartment for Your Treasure

Decorative ‘Steampunk’ Skull Includes a Secret Compartment for Your Treasure

This decorative skull has a cool Steampunk-ish look that probably earn this guy a top spot in the zombie army, if he were undead. It is supposed to have a “secret” compartment to store tiny trinket treasures. That secret compartment happens to be a clearly visible drawer on the side of the skull, which is not so secret, but apparently saying that aloud would hurt the skull’s feelings. So we’ll leave it at that. Erasmus Darwin’s Steam Cerebrum Skull was designed in England, manufactured in China, and ships free to the United States. Price $54.

A Subway-Style Map of Roman Empire’s Roads in 125 AD

A Subway-Style Map of Roman Empire’s Roads in 125 AD

Starting with the Roman Republic in 300BC and continued during the Roman Empire, the Roman State built and maintained hundreds of thousands of miles of roads. The roads were important for the movement of people, trade, and of course, armies. At its height, the empire had over 250,000 miles of roads – of which 50,000 miles were paved. So what would it take for the representation of these ancient roads in the modern world? A subway map, of course!

Sasha Trubetskoy created this map representing Roman roads in 125 AD in a fashion similar to modern subway maps. Sasha says the map involved a lot of research since there was no single consistent source, plus, some creative liberties had to be taken for the map.
