Thanks to Vicky, I’ve rediscovered a whole new realm of cool, awe-inspiring, fascination-evoking, wonder-inducing material with the Robert L. Ripley’s Believe It or Not cabinet-of-curiosities style collections of natural oddities, science facts, and anthropological anomalies1. The Ripley’s website is a great resource for daily fun facts, which I hope to start incorporating into my daily links on occasion.

Check out the complete flickr set here.

1 I know it offends modes of multicultural thought to use the word “anomaly” in reference to other cultures, but when a Medieval Culture or isolated tribe commits torture, manufactures art from non-consensually obtained human body parts, or commits murder in honor of their deity, that’s abnormal.
