In honor of Gary Coleman: "Whatchu talkin about Willis?" Are these really 20 of the Greatest 80s Catch Phrases?

From Flossy reader Rosa, a beautiful series of paper art.

What might you find in the world's 10 weirdest vending machines?

"Here's a rush hour clip from a street corner in Utrecht, Netherlands where most of the transportation is done via bicycles. I watched the clip just waiting for the big pile up but was equally impressed when it never came!" (Thanks Jay!)

Extra! Extra! Read all about it: Balloon Man (not to be confused with Balloon Boy) Floats Over the Channel, Lands in a French Cabbage Patch (that sounds like a child's nursery rhyme).

Meet the world's first recognized cyborg (the Robot Revolution draws nearer!)

Then, collaborating with two others he created an eyeborg which allowed him to hear colors and he uses this to create his art."

When I was applying for college, my mom encouraged me to look for some strange scholarships I might qualify for. Turns out, I'm not as special as I thought! Hopefully some of you younger folk can luck out with one or more of these 10 Out"“of-the-Ordinary Scholarships.
