For those who need new ways of insulting the rapscallions in your life, here are 10 charming words for nasty people to pepper your insulting tirades with.

Practically everything in print nowadays is Photoshopped, and it feels like this spoof "Fotoshop by Adobé" ad could almost be real, doesn't it?

A "would if I could!" moment: Hunting trout in the haunting waters of New Zealand. Stunning. Any anglers out there? A friend of mine was mad at this story for naming the rivers. Thoughts?
*
A very cool video about the oldest piano shop in Paris.

From my friend Matt, “Movies from an Alternate Universe”: What If Recent Films Had Been Made Decades Earlier? Honestly I prefer some of these versions …!

One cannot simply walk the streets without first being well-versed regarding their perils! Take heed then of this 1833 Parisian method of respectable navigation.

Aw man, I can't make a SOPA joke now that's it's dead. Still, here's a lovely compilation of copyright violations: Everyone's Mixtape. Does anyone else miss the art of the mixtape? I tried to keep it alive for awhile with CDs but people often refuse to respect track order!

Out of this world: planets captured within water drops by Markus Reugels. The best part of this to me is "a parquet-floor layer by day, Markus from Schweinfurt, Germany, creates his work in the evening." It can be hard to want to do anything creative when your main job is so laborious, which is why I love this.

A little something to keep you warm on this wintry day: the most incredible volcano footage ever. Wowza! And of course I had to look further into the story behind it.
