The Arctic, Where Climate Change Is Up Close And Personal - LAPLAND, Finland -- For dogsled guide Marco Echola, the massive disruptions wrought by global climate change are not an abstract concept. One night last month on a trek across the Arctic Circle, as the Aurora Borealis lit the frigid landscape of snow-covered lakes and forests, several of his huskies got loose. They were able to slip out of their collars because their fur had started to thin, which typically does not happen until much later in the year. “It’s too early for shedding,” Echola said.

Finland's homoerotic stamps are an ocular feast for women, too - The male nude is, let's be honest, a fairly amusing figure.Those hairy knees, fleshless dugs, the hopeless sagging of veined and twitching genitals, the too-long toes. From Lucian Freud's paint-thick, thigh-sticking appendages to the baby carrot and hanging plums of Michelangelo's David, it's hard to pull off a naked man. If you'll pardon the expression.But perhaps, as the Finnish postal service's latest series suggests, it takes a gay man to make a beefcake. In September this year, Finland is due to release a collection of stamps showing the work of famous homoerotic artist Tom of Finland. Decorated with perfect curves of smooth thighs, lustrous moustaches, rounded shining pectorals and lantern jaws, these stamps are a philatelic celebration of the phallic. Imagine the Vitruvian Man, plucked from the pages of an Armistead Maupin novel.

Why Vinyl Is the Only Worthwhile Way to Own Music - On any given Tuesday in the 90s, I would hustle to the record store after school to gawk at the new releases. Occasionally, I would take a CD home, greedily tear it open, pop it into my boombox, and listen while I pretended to do my homework. This wonderful experience has no value any more. It's obsolete.

NSFW? 40 Ridiculously Sexy People Wearing Easter Bunny Heads - This weekend, thousands of eager children will wait in lines at malls across America to have 15 seconds with the Easter Bunny. Parents will force them into pastel dresses and plaid bow-ties for a snapshot that should be documenting another year older and another religious observance, but often just capture a moment of sure terror due to the super creepy costumes these mall bunnies are made to wear. So instead of running away from our fears, why don't we welcome Easter (and these unfortunate bunny heads) with the help of a little sex appeal. We searched far and wide to find 40 of the sexiest people online who are so hot, the line at the mall would be a small price to pay for a chance to sit on their laps. Happy Easter!
