"Dear Subscriber", Indeed.

Ominous Text Message Sent to Protesters in Kiev Sends Chills Around the Internet

Protesters and journalists standing in the vicinity of fighting between the riot police and demonstrators in Kiev on Tuesday received an ominous text message on their phones: "Dear subscriber, you are registered as a participant in a mass disturbance."

A text message sent to the phones of people close to clashes in the Ukrainian capital, Kiev, on Tuesday read: "Dear subscriber, you are registered as a participant in a mass disturbance."

While it was unsigned, and local phone companies denied sending it, the text message -- which echoed language in a new law making it a crime to participate in protests deemed violent -- was widely read as a warning from the government.

Preaching Back At You: Billboard Campaign

Tired of being preached at on your way to work? So are we! It's time to preach back with colorful messages of reason and logic. We can put up billboards, too!

We've all seen them, billboards preaching an "Eternity In Hell" and "God is Watching!" Are you tired of getting preached at on your way to work? So are we! We are now ready to bring these messages (supported by actual scripture) to the masses and fight fire with fire - roadside billboards next to busy roads in very Christian cities across America.

With over 50% of professing Christians unable to even name the four Gospels, many will be surprised to learn that Jesus teaches his disciples to that their families and that the New Testament teaches women to be silent.

Well, we can rent billboards, too! It's time to preach back to the preachers!

"It combines the image of the laboratory mouse, and a scientist, because they are related to each other and serve as one case. Mouse is captured in the moment of scientific discovery. If you look into her eyes, you can see that this little mouse has come up with something. But the whole symphony of scientific discovery, joy, "eureka" has not yet begun to sound "- described the project by its author, Novosibirsk artist Andrew Kharkevich.

You Can Now Buy a Life-Size, 3D-Printed Replica of Your Unborn Fetus

"Don't worry. Many women learn to embrace this parasite. They name it, dress it up in tiny clothes, arrange playdates with other parasites."

The fetusdoll comes in a satin-lined, wooden box that is definitely not a coffin. And if it seems like there's an unsettling amount of facial detail in the lil' peanut, it's because there is. 3D Babies only takes on projects in which the pregnancy is at or very near full-term, so you can really get a good look at what exactly is floating around your (wife's) insides. You can even change the baby's pose to your liking in the terrifying process depicted below.

Note that the unspeakably amateurish official site has a section entitled "Products / Celebrity Babies".

Chris Cunningham: Now with moar lasers

Jaqapparatus 1:

A shadowy, sci-fi set involving two laser-firing robots locked in what seemed like a brutal mating ritual-cum-war -- Cunningham cast two Talos motion-controlled camera rigs as his anthropomorphized protagonists. "Mounted on the robots head are powerful lasers which they use to attack, repel and communicate with each other," explains Cunningham, "a kind of duel, a surreal mating display which sees each machine trying to dominate the other."
