Now that's a pretty epic cave!
Discovered in Vietnam in 1991, wasn't explorer until just a few years ago.  It's 5x larger than the next largest cave (also in Vietnam).  Probably over 2 million years old, and appears to have never been inhabited.  It features stalagmites up to 70m tall, a river and waterfall: and if you're feeling adventurous you can go on a tour there.

Fibre Arts, craftivism and the horrendously adorable macramé owl. Amusingly eerie, macramé owls coincided in popularity with the 1970s Fibre Arts movement. The owls were a harbinger of doom for the Fibre Arts discipline, some critics claim.

I still think that atmospheric electricity is a vastly underappreciated resource. 
The mysterious “Relámpago del Catatumbo” (Catatumbo lightning) is a unique natural phenomenon in the world. Located on the mouth of the Catatumbo river at Lake Maracaibo (Venezuela), the phenomenon is a cloud-to-cloud lightning that forms a voltage arc more than five kilometre high during 140 to ...

“Engaged in the fate of their country as dissidents, witnesses, and cultural interventionists, Syrian artists have openly questioned the role of art at every turn, publicly discussing the ways in which form and representation can be used to communicate the consequent realities of war.” —Maymanah Farhat.
