50 Odd And Interesting ‘Weird History’ Posts From This Account That Makes Learning Fun No Matter How Old You Are (New Pics)

With real-life facts often being far stranger than fiction, there’s nothing like a good history book to get your noggin’ joggin’ and make you appreciate life from a whole different perspective. I might have started my love affair with history as a subject with the amazing Horrible History book series, but I’ve since then graduated to thick and dusty tomes.

However, I still have a yearning for the more fun and unusual aspects of history that first drew me in. And that’s where the Weird History Twitter page comes into play. A page with 172k followers that’s been active since September 2011, Weird History is the brainchild of Andrew Rader who does, well, pretty much everything: from book-writing to cool space stuff.

50 Times Architects Really Outdid Themselves And People Celebrated Their Works Online

Architecture is meant to fulfill both practical and expressive requirements, and thus it serves both utilitarian and aesthetic purposes. When you look at a structure, you can distinguish these two ends but they cannot be separated, and the relative weight each of them carry can vary widely. Plus, every society has its own, unique relationship to the natural world and its architecture usually reflects that as well, allowing people from other places to learn about their environment, as well as history, ceremonies, artistic sensibility, and many aspects of daily life.

However, architecture is better seen, not described. So, let me introduce you to “the beautiful impossibilities that we want to live in“, a subreddit dedicated to high-quality images of some of the most impressive (concept) buildings out there. This online community already has over 617K members, and the pictures they share are absolutely gorgeous. Continue scrolling and take a look!

The Same Artist That Created The ‘Good Boy’ And ‘Black Cat’ Comics Is Back With A New Comic About A Parrot

Jenny Jinya is a freelance illustrator and animal rights activist from Germany whose name you should probably recognize if you frequent our website. The artist regularly creates heartbreaking comics that draw attention to various animal rights issues and this time she’s back with a comic about a pet parrot.

In her latest comic, Jenny tries to explain why budgies, and parrots in general, are very misunderstood pets – and how these misunderstandings often lead to their abandonment. As always, the artist provides some useful information and facts in the last panel, further explaining why you should do some serious research before choosing a parrot as a pet. See Jenny’s latest comic in the gallery below, and if you want to see more of her work, check out our previous posts herehere, and here.

Illustrator and animal rights activist Jenny Jinya recently created a heartbreaking comic about a budgie

The artist went on to explain why parrots are some of the most misunderstood pets

Jenny explained that unlike cats and dogs, parrots are not domesticated animals, therefore they require lots of freedom and can be pretty loud and disruptive as that’s the same way they act in the wild. Some inexperienced owners might find this behavior hard or even impossible to tolerate, leading to the pets being placed in closets, garages, or other environments where they wouldn’t be heard. According to the artist, a majority of captive parrots eventually end up in at least five homes and often die prematurely. “Do your research before you decide to get an exotic pet!” concluded Jenny – and the same thing goes for any other pet you’re planning to get.

Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that’s trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that’s too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

33 Hyper-Realistic Women In Magazine Poses With Their Flaws And Imperfections That Look Like Photographs

Philipp Weber is a talented artist who paints realistic portraits of women in traditional magazine poses. The artist, who lives and works in Kassel and Berlin, Germany, looks for inner truth so instead of bringing empty perfection to life, he portraits their minor imperfections and their deep human stories—whether that be the sadness in their eyes or wounds on their faces.

Weber’s artistic journey began when he was just a 3-year-old boy and since then, he hasn’t lost his path. Through the years, you can see a clear artistic progression in his works. His inspiration comes from books, movies, fellow artists, other creative people, and people’s personal stories about their lives: the stories that reveal their dreams and aspirations that are beyond fancy faces and flawless skin.

“Philipp started painting when he was 3 years old as a present to give his mum and grandmother to make them happy and smile. He says that he cannot imagine his life without painting. When he was a high school student, he painted portraits that he sold to people directly and made enough money to buy a small car,” says Philipp’s business manager Kiki Kim to Bored Panda.

“Philipp studied his Master’s degree at Berlin University of the Arts and he has always been interested in realistic or super-realistic art, regardless of what stage of his career he has been in, as he believes that his viewers can engage with his paintings the best with a super-realistic art form.”
