How would you like to live in your very own nuclear explosion? Sculptor Dietrich Wegner has designed a fort in the shape of a mushroom cloud, the visual associated with the mass destruction of powerful nuclear weapons.
The Twin Towers were enormous buildings and the attacks of 9/11 were of such magnitude that people were able to see the skyline change from neighboring states and camera-equipped satellites were even able to capture the aftermath from space.
When the Twin Towers fell on 9/11, the surrounding streets were enshrouded in plumes of smoke and massive clouds of dust.
Artist Xu Bing collected much of this dust and ten years later has used it as material for an installation called Where Does the Dust Collect? Blowing the dust onto the floor of an exhibition space with a leaf blower, he then stenciled a zen poem into it.
When ‘Back to the Future 2′ premiered way back in 1989, its vision of 2015 was exciting: Marty McFly got to enjoy inventions like the hoverboard and self-lacing sneakers.

It’s not just a funny title — ‘The Worst Movie EVER’ might actually be the worst movie ever. After opening in one theater in Los Angeles, the movie grossed $11, making it the lowest grossing film of all time.
It’s bad enough having to swat away a single bug, but an entire swarm? If you’re anywhere near the Missouri River that’s just something you might have to contend with – these “bugnadoes” form in areas with high volumes of water, particularly after flooding has occurred.
