Moving the world's largest wind turbine blade is a logistical nightmare:
This is the world's largest wind turbine blade en route to the largest offshore wind turbine in the world, in Methil, Scotland. At an incredible 273.95 feet (83.5 meters) long by 13.7 feet (4.2 meters) wide, the blade had to be transported all the way from Denmark, where it was manufactured—a logistical nightmare.

This is amazing.
For centuries, before refrigeration, an old Russian practice was to drop a frog into a bucket of milk to keep the milk from spoiling. In modern times, many believed that this was nothing more than an old wives' tale. But researchers at Moscow State University, led by organic chemist Dr. Albert Lebedev, have shown that there could be some benefit to doing this, though of course in the end you'll be drinking milk that a frog was in.

Once you've seen it, you can't unsee it.
With less than 50 days to go before Brazil hosts the World Cup finals, chatter over whether it's prepared has been growing by the day. This doesn't help: The event's logo is being ridiculed for bearing an uncanny resemblance to the internet's favorite way to express disgust, shame, or embarrassment--the ol' facepalm.

At least it's not as bad as the Lisa Simpson giving a ....logo of the London Olympics 2012

As if you didn't know already.
In case there was any doubt about it, NASA has confirmed that "ice cover this spring is significantly above normal." And with "significantly" they actually mean "are you freaking kidding me?" When the Aqua satellite passed over Lake Superior on April 20, the lake was 63.5 percent ice covered. Last year it was at 3.6 percent. It's the worst year in more than three decades by a very wide margin.

It's almost alien.
Tekhnika Molodezhi, or "Technology for the Youth," is a Soviet and Russian monthly science magazine that's been published since 1933. Like its U.S. and French counterparts, Popular Mechanics or the Le Petite Journal, the magazine is famous for its spectacular covers--often depicting fantastic scenes from the possible future.

All packaging should be this awesome.
Here's a cool concept created by Ko Yang: a cartoon that morphs its design overtime using color-changing ink. It can be done but, most probably, it will never be used in real life—most companies don't want people to skip their older merchandise at the supermarket.

Get your vaping in now.
The FDA has proposed new rules that would bring electronic cigarettes under its regulations for tobacco products, even though that's not exactly what they are.

+Edmann B. You can get liquids with or without nicotine. Here in Switzerland, they're all without as nicotine is banned for vaping purposes. That doesn't change the potential for harm, though, as the base ingredients in the liquids are strong irritants and, while harmless in liquid form, seem to become more aggressive when heated.

Where there's a will, there's a way.
The original Silk Road got seized by the feds. Its successor got hacked apart and robbed. Third time's a charm? Maybe. The minds behind a new proof-of-concept marketplace called "DarkMarket" say their model is impossible for the feds to take down.

.... Really? Those?
If you had to pick a single thing out of the last year of your life and explain why it was better designed than anything else, what would you chose? A jury at London's Design Museum narrowed its list down to seven objects--including a building, a keyboard, and a fashion line--today by announcing the category winners of its annual Design of the Year award.
