Octopus Spurs You to Glory with Hot Links


The US Olympians have certainly been bringing home the glory with their amazing achievements - Gabby Douglas, Missy Franklin, the Williams sisters and many others have been smashing records and making history with their wins.  But sometimes merely qualifying for the Olympics is a win in itself - just ask Oscar Pistorius of South Africa.  (HuffPo)

Also glorious?  These images from MTV's "House of Style."  You can almost hear Jon Stewart thinking "What the hell am I doing here?" in the third photo.  (Buzzfeed)

According to NPR, "negative campaigning and pronounced partisan differences" have young voters so disillusioned that pollsters are predicting a low voter turnout at the polls in November.  Yes, the negative campaigning is a turnoff, but apathy solves nothing.  (NPR)

So THAT'S why it hurts so much when I stub my toes!  (BoingBoing)

Dr. Tariq Rahman and Whitney Sample used a 3-D printer to completely change one little girl's world.  SCIENCE!  (The Mary Sue)

If you have $250,000 to blow, you can purchase this Black Diamond nail polish from Azature that features actual crushed diamonds in the polish.  This is why the rest of the world hates America.  (The Gloss)

I see the Twihards are still up-in-arms over the whole "Robsten" drama.  I thought we all knew by now that that was a publicity stunt?  (Crushable)

These Hollywood beauty treatments sounds insane.  Vampire needling?  Mummywrap trampoline sessions?  INSANE.  (The Hollywood Reporter)

This weekend was the 50th anniversary of Marilyn Monroe's death.  Monroe fans and lookalikes from around the world recently gathered in Hollywood to celebrate the icon's life.  (The Raw Story)

Oh, Fashion.  I just don't get you sometimes.  (Shine)

Mike Senna, a computer programmer/amateur prop maker, built a functioning WALL-E robot to delight the sick children of the City of Hope hospital.  He spent about 3,800 HOURS working on it and funded the project himself!  The world needs more Mike Sennas.
