Now Brewing: Roadkill Beer

A brewery in Scotland has begun brewing what they claim is the world's most potent beer. You'd think that would be enough of a marketing hook right there. But apparently not, because the most bizarre thing about The End of History beer is that it's sold in bottles nestled inside the taxidermied bodies of dead animals. Yes, that's correct.

This Telegraph article explains more, including the awful details of how the animals met their maker:

A taxidermist in Doncaster worked on the animals, which were not killed for bottling the new drink, with some having been killed on the roads.

Wow. As if dead rodent beer wasn't unappetizing enough, now we get to picture roadkill rodent beer. After hearing that, I don't think there is anything that could be said about this product that would make me want to buy it.

Outfits featured on some of the animals include a kilt and a top hat.

OK, maybe that.

No matter what their powers, every super hero has an origin story, from Spider-Man’s radioactive bite to Iron Man’s life-threatening chest shrapnel. In their latest poster, the designers at Pop Chart Lab have taken their infographic savvy to the Marvel Universe, charting the heroic origins of 36 different Marvel characters through miniature, minimalist comics.

Without using any words, they’ve managed to illustrate Bucky Barnes's plane explosion and subsequent transformation into the Winter Soldier, Jessica Jones’s car crash, the death of the Punisher’s family, and other classic stories from the major Marvel canon while paying tribute to the comic book form.

Explore the poster below, and see a zoomable version on Pop Chart Lab’s website.
