If it's Wednesday, that means it's time to zip around the world and see what's happening. But first, in honor of the Star Trek fans who commented on yesterday's link to Princess Leia, I give you...TrekJews. "Bimah Me Up, Scotty!" is an actual article title. Ha!

Heading east, we find the Chapel of Sacred Mirrors in New York City, which looks a little like a futuristic Leonardo Da Vinci gallery if the website's anything to go by. The International Street Theatre Festival is going on in France, and if you need help getting there an amazingly comprehensive listing of European railway networks may be useful.

It's only a month until the Homeless World Cup takes place in South Africa. Yes, really! Delegates are showing up from around the planet!

Over in Australia, the national Film Commission launched several UFOs and documented the reaction. UFOlogists are not too thrilled about this.

And finally, back here in the Cincinnati area, the Cardboard Boat Regatta is set to take place this weekend. Awards are given for the longest-lasting boat as well as the most spectacular sinking. Never a dull moment in this town!
