It’s almost an art form to itself with some amazing designs popping up in the last few years. A wedding cake that’s a dead Tauntaun with Luke pouring out of its belly? Yup that’s been done. As have just about any Star Wars creation you can think of, in edible cake form.


Is there Really Just Gold in Fort Knox?

As you’ll see below, there’s an awful lot that goes into protecting our nation’s gold. Considering that it’s current value is around $270 billion, some speculate that there’s more than just gold inside. Some say there are…

  • Weapons and Defense Items: In case of nuclear or zombie attack (or both) there is no safer place in the world. Could there be secret weapons and a way to get the President and other important people down there in case DC is compromised?
  • Aliens: Whenever tinfoil hats come out, aliens have to be in the picture.
  • Lies: What if we already sold off all of our gold? The vault would be the perfect way to keep our economy from collapsing despite the lack of a gold standard.

Whatever you believe, one thing is certain: you’d have an easier time getting into the White House than you would getting into Fort Knox (and don’t try to get into the White House – it’s dangerous over there).

This infographic by CreditSesame breaks down the facts and speculations nicely. Click to enlarge.

The incredible 3D images that pop off the page... created with just a pencil and paper

He's a modern day master making incredible 3D images that pop off the page - armed only with a pencil and a piece of paper.

At just 20-years-old, Chilean artist Fredo is quickly captivating the online art world with his series of graphite sketches.

He is now planning to take his art to the streets in a bid to spread his fanbase from the virtual world to the real one.

Fredo, whose real name is Wladimir Inostroza, learnt his startling technique purely by accident.

Drawing a butterfly whilst laid out on his bed, he realised the picture had been stretched out across the page.

On closer inspection he saw how the animal appeared to be floating, and that by chance he had used a method similar to one used by English 3D artist Julian Beever.

After adding in the shade with a set of charcoals, he took a photograph - and has never looked back.

With
his own blog, thousands of fans on his Facebook page, and countless
pages dedicated to his work, Fredo is now keen to expand on his talents and
take his art to the streets of Santiago and beyond.
