Artist regrows Van Gogh’s lost ear via his ancestor’s DNA

image

Artist Diemut Strebe made a living replica of Vincent van Gogh’s ear, grown from genetic samples provided by Lieuwe van Gogh, the great-great-grandson of Vincent’s brother Theo. They share about 1/16th of the same genes, including the Y-chromosome, passed down the male lineage.

So not actually Vincent Van Gogh’s ear if you want to get super technical about it— it’s a replica of his great-great-grandnephew’s ear, but that really doesn’t make it less badass.

Peppr: The German app that finds you a hooker.

Perhaps the best part of this app is the story of how it was started: 

"I was walking down Oranienburger Strasse – I know it sounds cheesy, but it’s the truth – it was chilly and I saw the poor girls on the streets, and I thought, why isn’t there an app? It’s not efficient to wait outside."-Pia Poppenreite

See people, human compassion isn’t dead. There just may be hope for the human race after all.

Germany uses the power of German engineering on advertising, and thus “Supergeil” was born!

The Brazilian ranch where Nazis once owned slaves

In the 1930s, during Hitler’s rise to power in Germany, the above photo of a local Brazilian soccer team was taken, and those swastikas on those flags are exactly those kind of swastikas— Nazi swastikas. Because in the 1930s, there were quite a few very fervent supporters of Adolph Hitler and his plans for genocide and world domination. And these Brazilian Nazis weren’t just bad in name only, they also were pretty big slave owners— and the soccer players in the photo were slaves. Stolen from orphanages and forced to work on farms their whole lives.

Thirty foot, 11 ton fire breathing dragon is also the world’s largest walking robot

Made for a play called Drachenstich, this beast named Tradinno is the world’s largest walking robot, as well as the most awesome thing I’ve ever seen. Oh, if only Hitler had one of these during WW2, he could have easily brought the entire world to its knees.

IHC After Dark: Helge Schneider “Katzeklo Katzenklo”

So this is Helge Schneider, whom some have called the Weird Al of Germany. In 2005 I visited my cousin in Münster where he was teaching English, and he told me about this guy because we both have a pretty sick sense of humor. The chorus of this song translates to “Cat litter, cat litter - yes, that makes the cat happy”. So years went by and for some reason I never bothered to look this song up again (YouTube wasn’t really a thing yet in 2005) until like right now when I randomly started singing it to myself. And so, my dear internet, I share it with you. I think Herr Schneider needs to be re-discovered by all.
