I’m not letting my wife see this…she only has around 1500 LP’s

‘World’s Largest Record Collection’

A physical music collection purported to be the largest in the world is on sale on eBay, with a minimum reserve bid of $3 million. The collection includes more than six million songs on three million records and 300,000 compact discs. If you were to buy it by on iTunes by the song, not that you’d be able to find all of it, the same collection would run you $5,940,000 (in that sense, $3 million is a bargain).

A pot-bellied pig that paints pictures has become a hit for his canvases of abstract expressionism.

…Ten-year-old Smithfield, who holds the paintbrush in his mouth, has now become a celebrity across America. He trots out at charity events and has appeared on Oprah Winfreys TV show.

Fran, from Virginia, said: “Smithfield is a very clever pig. He’s done hundreds of paintings.”

Scientists say pigs are colour blind but Fran reckons Smithfield can tell the difference. She added: “He likes blue best. He definitely picks up the blue brush more frequently than any other.”

Einstein’s cat

“I was always astonished by the fact that a cat has the holes in its fur exactly where the eyes are. Kinda creepy, when you think about it as frequently as I do.”
