Why not get a Stonehenge watch in honor of the summer solstice this week?

Moving around the Turkey, the Kirkpinar Oiled Wrestling Festival is taking place this weekend. Yes, it's just what it sounds like. Meanwhile, the International Poetry Festival of Medellin happens in Colombia, and in Montana they're reenacting Custer's Last Stand .

If you yearn for a Haunted Mansion singing statue, yearn no more - you can make your own! And you can keep it in a room with a devilish doorstop!

And lastly, something for the linguistics and/or geography geeks: I've always wondered how streets get their names, especially in high-density areas like subdivisions. The LA Times went to find out who names their local streets and why he picks the names he does.
