Barcelona resident Francisco Lopez Serrano captured video of artisan crafting a horse from a piece of piping hot molten glass. While the artist uses great care, he’s able to make the animal almost instantly recognizable with a few swift motions.
In a recent episode of Vsauce3, host Jake Roper looks at the process of human digestion, answers how much humans can actually eat, and eats a sentient talking taco. Roper introduces the video by talking about playing the video game Super Smash Bros using the character Kirby, known for swallowing his enemies whole to gain their attributes.

YouTube drone videographer PC3DM flew a quadcopter around the large and complex Watts Towers sculptures in the Watts neighborhood of Los Angeles to capture some 360-degree aerial footage. The towers were built by construction worker Sabato “Simon” Rodiaover a period of 33 years, beginning in 1921.
A few weeks ago, our wonderfully outspoken 9-year old niece told us that she believed in unicorns based upon the very real existence of the narwhal, a medium-sized whale with a long horn protruding from its head. She convincingly made her case, vociferously stating that they both come from the same origin.
It appears that Kozyndan (Kozy and Dan), the Los Angeles-based collaborating artist couple, had pretty much the same idea when they created “Rainbow Magic” in in cooperation with Pretty In Plastic. The resin sculpture features a bucking blue and green unicorn inside of a clear narwhal, both sharing a brightly colored horn.
The sculpture is available for $1,500 USD through Kozyndan’s online store.
The magical secret of the narwhal is revealed! We always wondered how a whale came into being with a single giant horn coming out of its head. We concocted our own explanation, but it speaks to the idea of evolution – species evolution and the concurrent evolution of thought. Magic becomes Religion begats Science reveals the Magic inherent in the Universe.
