Sculptor Andy Yoder spent two years building this lovely globe from individually-painted matchsticks. His son, reddit user yoderaustin, explains that the frame is a mix of foam, cardboard, and plywood. One by one, Yoder attached the hand-painted matches to this skeleton with wood glue, before lastly—in an effort that one may consider to be of both precaution and irony—dousing the entire form in flame retardant.

No 18 year old was ever happier to get her license renewed.
Lorde has once again shown herself to be a completely awesome feminist crusader.
When the young singer spotted a heavily-airbrushed picture of herself floating around the Internet, she decided to take a stand for natural beauty by tweeting an unedited shot alongside it. Turns out she — horror of horrors — has zits like any other 17 year old.
Dubbo Drop Bear Sanctuary - Dubbo, Australia
The city of Dubbo, 250 miles northwest of Sydney, is home to a refuge for one of Australia’s least known yet most lethal animals: the Drop Bear (Thylarctos plummetus).
Drop Bears can be difficult to recognize due to their close resemblance to koalas. Both animals have round, grey bodies, fluffy ears, and large black noses. Both inhabit eucalyptus trees and are largely sedentary, spending up to 20 hours each day sleeping. It is during the remaining four hours, however, that the differences between the species become frighteningly apparent.
Drop Bears lie in wait among the leaves until they spot a hiker approaching. When the hapless walker strides beneath the bear’s tree, the creature drops, landing on the person’s head and usually biting into their neck to subdue them.
