Amazing urban bike skills. Way Back Home is the incredible new riding clip from Danny MacAskill, it follows him on a journey from Edinburgh back to his hometown Dunvegan, in the Isle of Skye.

I’m completely astounded by the realism and quality of Stéphanie Kilgast’s amazingly little miniature food models. She makes 1/12 size models for doll houses, takes commissions for 1/6th size models as well as making her own line of whimsical miniature food jewellery.

Parkour from some guys in Cambridge, UK.
And almost as fun to watch – some parkour outtakes.

Parkour or not, this Damien chap has some amazing aerial talents. He’s making all those twists and turns look easy, but I’d hate to have his knees at 50.

French-born, London-based hair master Charlie Le Mindu creates the most outrageous wigs. I’d love to see these walking down the street!

Multi-talented Aung Zaw Oo takes parkour-style skills in a different direction by throwing in skateboards, swords and some mild juggling into the mix.

I can’t help but stare at these huge monster cows! Apparently, they originate in 19th century Belgium by crossing local cattle with British cattle.
The Belgian Blue cattle are gigantic bovine wonders. Their enormous size and muscle mass, sometimes called “double muscling,” is a naturally occurring mutation of the gene for myostatin, a protein that regulates muscle growth. This mutation results in accelerated lean muscle growth.
For show, they’re often shaved to show off their muscle growth.
See this video below for a little insight into their “development”. Watch as they collect the semen from one bull for artificial insemination (not kidding!)

Though taxidermic samples aren’t for the squeamish, artist Sabrina Brewer takes it to the next level to create compelling sculptures that mix and match dead animal parts to give “life” to creatures from fantasy.
Think griffins, unicorns and undead three-headed squirrels. If that floats your cryptozoologist boat, then have a look at her website at which you can buy your very own pair of Siamese Squirrel twins.

Whilst looking at shots of vodka isn’t exactly at the top of our activities list (although its above watching the washing machine spin), this Bloody Brain Shooter concoction had us compelled to stare.
Mixing acidic lime juice and irish cream creates the curdling brain-like strands and un-tasty as it looks, sounds like it goes down a dream.

Watch this short video to see members of the dance group Pilobolus come together behind the screen to create some cool shadow puppet scenes. The best bits have to be the moment just before the scenes are created.
