I remember reading about the Crazy Horse memorial back in the late '70s or early '80s and thinking wow, that'll be amazing when it's finished. Yes, well. It may still be finished one day!

One day we may also find all the art that's been stolen over the years. It could happen. Interpol has put together a database in order to help track everything down.

Here at Spooky Librarians HQ, we occasionally discuss how fun it would be to have a metal detector. A British man living on disability thinks it's incredibly fun, now that he's discovered a stunning treasure trove of ancient Anglo-Saxon gold.

Not quite as stunning but still wonderful is the recent restoration of the detailed Art Deco ceiling in the Empire State Building. Look, gears! It's steampunk!

If you have an insignificant object and you want to sell it, find someone to invent a back story. (Ebay sellers have used this trick for years with "haunted items.") Now, Significant Objects matches writers and objects to increase profits for all.

Like graphic novels? Find math baffling? Give Logicomix a try -- it's a Greek graphic novel about Bertrand Russell, mathematics, and more.
