In the depths of his garden on Batam Island, Indonesia, dedicated macro photographer Uda Dennie has mastered the art of photographing jumping spiders that have droplets of water on their heads, giving them the playful appearance of wearing large, reflective hats.
"The massive water droplets stay in place for about a minute, which is just the right amount of time for the 33-year-old to snap these shots. While most of us feel a bit squeamish when looking at macro photos of spiders, Dennie has somehow taken that uneasy feeling away, replacing it with curiosity and glee."

Last month, the book art piece above was found at the National Library of Scotland. It was the fourth piece found since March in a book-friendly location in Scotland. All reference or are devised from the work of Scottish mystery writer Ian Rankin and include a note professing some book love.
Famous people in history, they’re probably more badass than you.

It will be interesting, in 500 years, to discover what percentage of people are related to Bret Michaels #idiocracy
I’m pretty excited about this, now I want the Smithsonian to curate an exhibit on comics
No joke, I absolutely love this letter, especially the fact that it was definitely written by a kid. At least, I hope it was a kid, and not an actual adult writing in to complain about Werewolf By Night being too heavy on polysyllabic words and too light on the blood, but either way, I hope young (?) David stuck with comics, because he would’ve loved the ’90s.
Also, if Marvel had used “ALL THEY DO IS WRESTLE AND FIGHT!” as the tagline on the cover of Werewolf By Night, I’m pretty sure sales would’ve tripled.
Chris Sims, on why bringing back letters columns to comics is a bad idea over at Comics Alliance.
I will definitely be using “ALL THEY DO IS WRESTLE AND FIGHT!” as a tagline for something, some time.
