The Wolf Man howls at the moon, eats raw meat, and is the alpha male of a wolf pack in Germany. #DirtyJobs
Werner Freund just might be a modern day werewolf. While he may not run around in cut off jeans sporting a shirtless six pack (Team Jacob, anyone?), he does run with the pack.
Freund established the Wolfpark Werner Freund, a sanctuary in western Germany that is home to 29 wolves hailing from six distinct packs from Europe, Siberia, Canada, the Arctic, and Mongolia. Since 1979 he has raised and lived insanely close to more than 70 wolves, and they treat him like the alpha male that he is.
The story behind the scantily clad women who helped the Allied Forces win WWII.
Pinups won World War II. Well… a lot like the Navajo Code Talkers, they helped win the war.
In one of the darkest, most violent and bloody periods in human history, could there be one specific idea, one more powerful than freedom or life itself, that could act as an encouraging light at the end of the tunnel? Scantily clad women, of course.

Spend a night in Big Sur in a treefort modeled after a bird’s nest.
If you ask us, the Swiss Family Robinson had it pretty sweet, and you'd be lying if you said you never wanted to live in a treehouse when you were a kid. Who are we kidding — you'd be lying if you said you never wanted to live in a treehouse as an adult.
Fortunately, you're not the only one who had this idea. Treebones Resort in Big Sur, California has a variety of camping options, including The Nest, a sculptural wood structure made by Big Sur artist Jayson Fann, which can be all yours for $95 a night.
Overlooking the rolling breakers of Big Sur, the Nest can accomodate two people and comes with a mattress and a couple of cushions. You bring the sheets, sleeping bags, and blanket to absorb the morning Pacific mist.
You can never unsee this Siberian bear-hunting suit from the 1800s.
In the battle of man versus bear, house money is on the bear every time. It seems safe to assume that bears are naturally endowed with certain physical advantages no unarmed man could compete with.
However, this Siberian bear-hunting suit from the 1800s strikes us as a commendable attempt to disrupt the natural order of things. Bear versus man? Sure, that's an easy call. But bear versus man-dressed-something-from-the-next-installment-of-the-Saw-franchise is a tougher bet. Perhaps man has a chance.
Who ever said that you had to have après-ski inbounds?

An Austrian engineer recently retrofitted a 1966 VW Bus Bulli T1 with late-’60s Bombardier snow tracks and a DJ sound system capable of causing an avalanche in the backcountry.
Chinese artist Li Wei’s photography defies gravity and will make you weak in the knees.
Li Wei may not be Super Man in real life, but in his intricately staged photographs, he and his cast of characters certainly appear like they hail from planet Krypton.
While it's difficult to discern, each of Beijing-based artist Li Wei's photographs are highly orchestrated photo shoots, involving crews, cranes, and plenty of wire. The staged scenes are later doctored in Photoshop to appear as if his subjects (often himself and one or a few accomplices) float and fly in ways our natural laws do not permit.
A story about cowboys, indians, and the brazen postmen of The Pony Express.
In the lore of the American West, one figure stands starkly as silhouette on the horizon—a lone rider on his horse. With nothing but a revolver, a bible and a sack of water, he waits in the darkness, listening for hoof beats.
The year was 1860, and the horseman, slight in build and still in adolescence, was a member of The Pony Express. There were 120 others like him: young, dauntless, and willing to risk it all.
Forget the man cave. Spring for a trapdoor wine cellar.
So you have money. Some real money. Pinkie to the mouth millions of dollars type of thing. You have the mountain home. A yacht named 'Lassie'. A pet giraffe named 'Lassie'. And of course, a valet named Carson. Yet despite it all, you wake up at night with an empty feeling, like running your tongue over an extracted tooth. "How do I fill this gap", you ask?
Might we recommend a spiral cellar? Taking a page from the trap doors of medieval times and inspired by the spiral staircases in French aqueducts, Spiral Cellars builds underground wine storage that are sure to be the toast of any swanky gathering.
As a thank you for her cultural contributions to Iceland, Björk was given a small island. Greatest gift ever.
Opinions and musical tastes aside, Björk is a pop culture icon. The eclectic, eccentric, and occasionally outrageous Icelandic singer-songwriter has an extensive discography, a number of awards to her name, and general recognition from just about every genre of music. If she wasn’t on your radar for her career, she would have been for her infamous (and infinitely parodied) swan dress. Yet an oft-overlooked accomplishment of her career is what she did to put Iceland on the international map.
So great was the motherland’s appreciation for her work as a cultural ambassador of Iceland, that as we understand it, they gave her an island.
