For a small landlocked European country, Austria has offered up many remarkable things to the world. For hundreds of years they have given us delicious cakes and sweets; back in the 1930s we got the diminutive and furiously-tempered Adolf Hitler; and more recently on the scene has been the Governor...

Florida's Lorenzo Knight got greedy last month. Knight's day may have started innocently enough. Wake up. Shit, shower, shave. Eat some Fruity-Ohs while watching MTV. At some time during his mid-morning, though, the ritualistic comforts of commercially-processed cereal and Beyonce must have...

The first question, of course, is just what sort of ass hole we are talking about here: true, everyone has one, and a fair number of people are them. This implies that the history of human ass holes must go back at least to Cain. That isn't the subject at hand, however. Instead, I'm talking...

How much pampering is enough? We know that we are far from the rugged wilderness dwellers our ancestors were; even the most frugal of us, by comparison, live in the lap of luxury. But researchers in Neenah, Wisconsin, think that even our nether regions -- or, at least, those of women over forty-...

Usha Chaumar spent the adult portion of her thirty-three years of life in Alwar, India, cleaning up after people who will not look at her as they pass her on the street.

From the early days, conceptual art, like Duchamp's urinal and Manzoni's canned shit, has always courted controversy. But it hasn't actually caused chaos -- until now. The harmonious landscaped gardens of the Zentrum Paul Klee museum in Berne, Switzerland, have been home for the past few months to...

Off of Indian River Drive in Brevard County, Florida, there used to be a church. It was built in the late 1800's, and it played a huge part in the community in which it stood. It was used for prayer, of course; but it was also was used as a school, a public hall, a polling station, and even an...

He found himself basking in one of the many balmy evenings that he'd known since birth. He stopped and inhaled a lungful of Yankee air, grateful that the Goldenrod had yet to bloom. Maybe it was the atmosphere -- sparse and foreboding. Maybe it was the whisperings of flavor in the air,...

Wrenches, spare parts for an oxygen generator, and a microbe-killing device: three things that, in space, are less important than a functioning toilet. Each of those items have been removed from the cabin of the Discovery Space Shuttle to make room for a pump needed to fix the urine collection...
