This time, I am left speechless by the talent behind this LEGO creation. Scarlet Spider battles the Vulture atop the Daily Bugle building. The creator is Xenomurphy on flickr. Thanks to Brothers Brick for the find.
Why Jan. 13, 2014, Went Down As One Of The Biggest Days In Global Health Since You’ve Been AliveIt was just a few years ago that India accounted for nearly 50% of the world’s polio cases. HALF! Half is … well, half more than it should be. Scary. But fast-forward to today and it’s a completely different story — one that’s going down in history in the best way possible

The Ancient Greeks
The greeks are a wonderful culture with many different gods and myths. Hercules, Narcissus, and Achilles are all myths that are retold to this day and have relevance in our current society. Themes of love, hate, betrayal, and arrogance populate stories from this time. But there have been lost stories as well; forgotten by the sand of time. Including: the story of a peasant named Domiclese, a shepherd who angered the gods with his hubris.
When the gods turned their focus to Domiclese, they discovered that not only was Domiclese a shepherd, he was also secretly a robot who could fire lasers out of his face. When Domiclese melted Apollo and Mercury with his “laser face” it signaled the beginning of “The Great Robot War.” The robots eventually overthrew the pantheon and established a “New Robot Order.” The robots forced the humans underground for years to toil in their underground mines to find igneous rocks, whichrobots [sic] eat to gain power.
The greeks hated and feared their new robot oppressors, but stood firm against them in combat. The greek people formed a “trojan horse” to dupe the foolish metal ones into allowing the humans to overtake their robo future-castle. Even though they were driven out, these mechanical beings did not despair. The robots beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.”
The Aztecs had many ritual and ceremonies that have gone unpracticed for hundreds of years. Most impressive among them was the act of “Quzetoheetl”, the ritual of forming a circle around a wolf of wild dog and chanting sacred words which gave the dog the ability to speak english and play basketball. (Or “ollamalitzi”.)
Once the Aztecs used this rituals on a very special dog. The special dog befriended a lonely boy who was the water boy for his local high school ollamalitzi team. After the dog ram onto the court and became a fan favorite, the mean former owner kidnapped the dog. Luckily the lonely boy steals him back just in time to make it to the big tournament, where it is declared that “there’s nothing in the rulebook that says a dog can’t play ollamalitzi.” The dog scored an amazing last second point to win the game! Everyone rejoiced! Then the ritual of “Xolitzeunzli” was performed to allow the dog to have puppies, save Christmas, and become Santa’s most special reindeer.
