Absolutely Fascinating Part 4

The world can be a strange but fascinating place full of mysteries. Here are just a few of the stories I've collected over the past couple months.

Meteors in All Their Glory

Here are two particularly spectacular meteors which were caught on video tape. Click here for the one in Canada and here for the one in Denver. Cool doesn't even begin to cover it. Especially the one in Denver. So wishing that I could have been there to see it in person!

Demon of Dartmoor

Okay, this one was too bizarre for words, especially when I saw it how it played out in the end. Someone captured a picture of this terrible looking, big, black beast wandering only a few hundred yards from a group of helpless school children. Click here for the original article. Pretty scary, right? I mean look at that thing? Well then I saw this link here and couldn't stop laughing.

He's sooooo adorably cute!

The Doll That Grew Old in the Attic

You have to see this one to believe it. Click here for the original article. As a doll collector, I know how easily dolls can be damaged by the elements. Humidity, extreme temperatures, bright light and even pollution can do some pretty horrible things given enough time. Older dolls are especially bad this way--but DANG--if I found this had happened to one of my dolls--I'd get rid of it as fast as I could too! That's just creepy.

Insanely Small Miniature Sculptures

Click here to see the smallest sculptures you will ever lay eyes on. Most of these fit inside the eye of a needle or on top of the head of a pin. As a person who likes to sculpt in miniature myself, even I can not tell you how the artist did this. At this size, you could accidentally breath in the piece if you are not careful. The beat of your heart could cause your hand to shake and destroy the piece.
