Eight of the world's prettiest women merged into one (perfect?) being

Sploid reader Marius Vibe merged eight of the most beautiful women in the world into a single person. The final result is intriguing, but the best part is the process itself—and the intermediate morphs. Who is more beautiful—the originals, the intermediate mixes, or the merging of them all? » 8/28/14 3:19pm Yesterday 3:19pm

Amazing photo of the Milky Way over Yellowstone's alien hot springs

NASA's Astronomy Picture of the Day has an amazing picture by Dave Lane today, a 16-photo panorama of the Milky Way arching over Silex Spring, Yellowstone National Park. The amazing pool colors—caused by bacteria thriving in the magma-heated waters—make this look like a picture from an alien world. » 8/27/14 8:48am Wednesday 8:48am

This champagne glass is shaped after Kate Moss' left breast (NSFW)

I wish these magically animated drawing journals existed in real life

Spanish illustrator Luis Pastor draws one vignette per day in his pocket-sized Moleskin journal.

This classic beauty is one of the most powerful electric cars ever made

Jalopnik will be trying the Renovo Coupé at Pebble Beach, California. I just wanted to post it here because it's a glorious thing: A modified Shelby powered by an electrical engine capable of developing an insane 1,000 lb-ft of torque, pushing the car from 0 to 60mph in under 3.4 seconds.

This is one of the best music videos I've seen in years

If you don't know Paolo Nutini, I don't blame you. I just learned about this British singer when I saw this video of his song Iron Sky. It opens with a hard-to-watch 2-minute silent intro—and then the beautiful music hits contrasting with the lives of pariahs, the mentally insane, the junkies...

Who knew that making a door handle could be such a beautiful process?

I've never spent more than two seconds thinking about a door handle beyond whether I should push or pull to open. But now that I've watched the complete process of making a leather door handle, I'm beginning to think I should think about the little things more. What else is beautiful out there that I never knew? » 8/05/14 9:42pm 8/05/14 9:42pm
