Am I Crazy to Think This is Awesome?

Creepy clowns have been "terrorizing" Britain lately. (And by terrorizing, I mean walking around in clown costumes at night or standing on street corners waving at passersby.)

The locals have their knickers in a twist, but I personally think these guys (they're almost certainly guys) deserve medals. My life is more interesting for just having READ about them. I can't even imagine how fabulous it would be to spot one in person.

Good work, gentlemen. Carry on.

The Lake That Turns Creatures to Stone

Lake Natron in Tanzania is so salty that it can calcify creatures that crash into it. Photographer Nick Brandt discovered the flamingo shown above as well as bats, eagles and entire flocks of flinches that had all been turned to stone by the Natron's alkaline waters.
