Inspired by images from the Hubble space telescope, photographer Navid Baraty has been creating “out-of-this-world” images for his WANDER series — an imaginary spacecraft mission that stands for Wormhole Accelerated Nomad Delivery Reconnaissance — by arranging common household materials onto an Epson scanner.
The planets and moons are made by scanning the bottoms of glasses containing the liquids. The liquids naturally create the shapes and swirls that you see in the images when they mix. The stars and other points of light are made by sprinkling spices and the other ingredients around the scanner glass. Everything is scanned with the cover open to create the totally black backdrop of “space.”
Planet, Moons, and Stars

But how?
His son had the idea to create a list of food puns for every state in the Union.
“The Foodnited States Of America” is now a delicious country filled with appetizing states like Kaleifornia, Swissconsin, and New Jerky.
A man whose humor is as dry as his head is bald analyzes and praises the hockey hair that has recently been on display in Minnesota’s High School hockey tournament.
It’s fair to say that the hairstyles and their presentation here are nothing short of glorious…
As you heard in the video, this video’s sponsor is donating $15,000 to charity if it reaches 100,000 views. Little did they know how badly the internet wanted to revel in Minnesota’s flow. It is already approaching a million views.
“The Simpsons” is one of the cleverest sitcoms on TV today. With its wide range of humor that pretty much everyone can understand some of, it’s no wonder the show has been on the air for going on 30 years.
