Women (and men!) have often employed strange methods for attaining beauty, although I myself would have to draw the line way before I got to bird dropping facials, ground pig placenta, or any of these other Bizarre Beauty Treatments.

For some of the scariest sculptures and busts you can imagine (just strange facial expressions, yet wonderfully crafted), check out the Madness of Messerschmidt, and keep in mind these were created over 250 years ago! (also, take a gander at some of these more contemporary human motion statues)

Want to enjoy a brew by the pool? So does that mosquito! According to a recent study, mosquitoes are drawn to beer drinkers.

Whether you're hoping to go to the beach or glad to be avoiding it, these astounding beach scenes from around the world has a little something for everyone.

From Sarah: did Shakespeare write his plays? It's a question as old as, well, Shakespeare himself! The battle rages on as to whether there is a conspiracy and according to author James Shapiro, "so much is at stake in Shakespeare. In the great game of capture the literary flag, this is it."

Enjoy your Saturday (which is hopefully your day off). Speaking of which ... what exactly do Storm Troopers do on their day off?
