We've featured the work of Ray Villafane quite a fewtimesnow, but these are some of the pumpkins that put him on the map. Villafane's ability to carve texture and character into these ordinary squashes is mind-boggling, to say the least. He'll be making all kinds of new works for the New York Botanical Gardens through Halloween, so we'll be sure to post any more cool ones that come our way!
The Swedes are nuts man. In honor of upholding a Christmas tradition, a 25-year-old Swede set ablaze an enormous decorative goat made of straw.
The authorities are waiting to question the emboldened madman, likely hopped up on all manners of vodka, till he sobers up. Apparently the goat preceded Santa as the bringer of Christmas gifts in old Swedish tradition.

What you see here is the icy aftermath of what's called the lake-effect phenomenon. This takes place when a cold front absorbs moisture as it passes over a big, warm body of water, and then tends to produce absurd amounts of snowfall.
For a moment there we thought this might be the latest in a string of prior Jimmy Kimmel vs. John Krasinski & Emily Blunt pranks. In case you were unaware those two star-studded teams have been exchanging Christmas-wrapped cars for blows in an epic ongoing prank war.
Sure, some other crazy fellas out there have attempted and successfully accomplished this feat of fear-defying slacklining; but it doesn't happen frequently. More like, every few years. And in this case, during the video there's even a moment when our legend of the hour loses his grip, kind of stumbles, and shitness if that's enough for the instant ball shrivelin up in fear moment.
These hydraulic press videos never fail to break down preconceived notions about what can successfully be crushed to smithereens in a satisfying display of utter destruction. Still in our thoughts and prayers, Stretch Armstrong. Watch that ridiculous video here, by the way. The dudes are back at it again to take on an anvil. Let's go baby!
This is definitely the little champ you wanted on your team in middle school when you were on a field trip, and you had to pick someone for 'the watermelon challenge.' Oh well, when at a cricket match right?
