When one fish gets injured, the rest of the school takes off in fear, tipped off by a mysterious substance known as "Schreckstoff" (meaning "scary stuff" in German). Now, researchers have figured out what that scary stuff is really made of. Sugar!
Regardless if you are a designer or not, having all the existing colors bound in your bookshelf would look quite impressive. A New York-based artist Tauba Auerbach presented a 8 x 8 x 8-inch cube book, that contains the complete RGB color scheme page by page.
The binding of the cube was designed by the author herself in collaboration with Daniel E. Kelm. The book with the digital offset prints and an airbrushed cloth cover makes a beautiful 3D reference of the whole pallet of colors in existence.

The owner of a Florida pizza shop says people are boycotting his business because he bear-hugged President Barack Obama on Sunday.
“People are saying a lot of bad things and boycotting my restaurant,” Scott Van Duzer, 46, told POLITICO. “There’s no middle line anymore, and that’s exactly what’s wrong with our country right now.”
The owner of Big Apple Pizza & Pasta Restaurant in Fort Pierce, Fla., said that both Democrats and Republicans are welcome in his store. But he also said he thinks Mitt Romney’s running mate Rep. Paul Ryan — whose sculpted abs are thanks to intense P90X training sessions — would lose to the president in a workout battle.
“I think Obama could take him,” Van Duzer said, laughing. “Obama looked pretty fast and pretty quick on his feet.”
So is Van Duzer. For a guy who biked 1,148 miles in 31 days from Florida to Washington D.C., lifting Obama was a piece of cake — err, a slice of pizza. And Van Duzer says he wasn’t even warmed up...
La Tomatina is a festival that is held in the Valencian town of Bunol, located inland from the Mediterranean Sea, that brings together thousands of people for one big tomato fight – purely for fun!
La Tomatina is a cultural festival in Spain that is world renowned for it's exuberance and playfulness. This gallery of 26 images shows some of the dynamism and appeal to this extraordinary event where more than 40,000 people engage in the world's largest foof fight using upwards of 100 tons of tomatoes in the yearly food fight known as 'La Tomatina.'

These hastily-composed, informal signs are written in three languages (Spanish, English and Japanese). What does this tell us about the festival? Also, notice how the comments section revolves around the concepts of waste, poverty and consumption.
