In 1968 Finnish architect Matti Suuronen designed these UFO-looking houses thinking they could be used as holiday homes. They’re light and compact enough that they can be easily moved via helicopter and back in 1968 apparently everybody thought the idea of living as nomads in weird pods was an awesome idea. Obviously it didn’t really take off but there are still a few of these Futuro Houses scattered around the globe, including one somewhere in Adelaide, Australia! I want to go find it. You can read all about them here or here (I prefer this link for the awesome early 90s Geocities vibes).

In 1971 while drilling in the Turkmenistan village of Derweze geologists discovered a cavern filled with natural gas. They set it on fire to prevent the poisonous gas killing everything nearby, expecting it would burn for only a few days but 40 years later, it’s still going.
I love this photo of Debbie Harry and Joey Ramone taken by Roberta Bayley in 1977.
Now I’m pretty sure I’ve told you guys to read my friend Sara’s awesome blog Cartoon Heart but this is her super amazing band. They’re a Cock Sparrer tribute band and they are so good. Even if you have never heard of Cock Sparrer or don’t like punk rock you’ll still be able to enjoy them.
A scientific attempt to create to worlds’ most annoying song.
This apartment in Paris was left untouched for 70 years! The woman who owned it left for the South of France after WWII and never returned but paid rent up until she died last year. Inside the apartment was a painting worth millions of dollars!
I just like this shirt.
