Screen shot 2010 08 30 at 2.13.13 AM 585x327 Monday Mood Ups: Ninja Say What?!Do you find it silly that certain races have their own language derived from English which is to be spoken only by them? Being a New York resident, accepting and understanding this is part of my daily life. Our language has become so complicated that changing a letter of a word can mean the difference between being a racist or not. The way we speak to each other defines who we are to each other.

gary shteyngart1 268x400 Super Sad True Love Story, Novel.

So this guy, Gary Shteyngart… he’s been around for a few years (his first book, The Russian Debutante’s Handbook, was published in 2003), and now is starting to gather some serious writer-momentum.* His latest, the Super Sad True Love Story pictured above, has just come out, and it’s nailing reviews. I have a signed copy, and am proud of myself. You should also probably get a copy. Why? Because Gary Shteyngart is absurd, and probably the funniest contemporary writer around.

Okay, so it’s more of a yacht. A pretty yacht.

Yelken Octuri (which is a totally badass name, in the first place) has designed a flying yacht. This is to say that he’s designed a vehicle that is at once a 46 meter sailing trimaran with four automatically functioning masts and a fully functional plane that transforms – on the water – and can travel at speeds of roughly 390 km/h. Take a look at the interior, and beyond being the complete world-killer in transportation, it’s also a luxury chillin’ spot.

coloured fish skeleton 3 469x400 Coloured Fish Skeletons

What can you really say about coloured fish skeletons? Really. Japanese scientists have found a way to make a dead animal’s flesh and muscles transparent and then they discovered how to dye the skeletal systems various colours. Is it art? Is it science? Does it straddle the two, beautifully proving some guy in a lab’s theory of something or other while looking pretty cool in the meantime? These would make interesting conversation pieces atop the mantle or put up by the hundreds on little shelves on the wall.
