The Big Picture has posted some photos from this year's cheese-rolling contest at Coopers Hill. The race involves a bunch of idiots bouncing down a very steep hill. The prize? 8lbs of Double Gloucester cheese.

A collection of incredible 3D murals painted on the sides of buildings. Some are so realistic (e.g. the Cafe Trompe L'oeil, in San Jose, California) you would be forgiven for thinking that they were part of the building.

I shouldn't be surprised by this weird fetish as people can get turned on by almost anything but being turned on by wool is pretty damn weird. If you really must, you can view more photos here (some NSFW).

Parents struggling to get their kids to revise in the run-up to exams can now keep them at their desk using a ball and chain that only unlocks when they have studied for long enough.
A red digital display counts down the "Study Time Left" and the device beeps and unlocks when the time expires.
The prison-style device weighs 9.5 kg (21 pounds), making it difficult to move while wearing it.
It cannot be locked for more than four hours and comes with a safety key that allows the manacle to be opened at anytime.
The ball and chain costs £75 and is sold online at curiosite.com.
Great photos as usual from The Big Picture.
Restaurant Chronicles - dramatic reenactments of restaurant reviews on Epinions.
A 1957 Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa has set a new world record for the most expensive car ever sold at auction, costing the buyer 9.02 million euros ($12.15 million), according to RM Auctions, which organized the event.
The price, which includes a 10 percent buyer's premium on top of the "hammer price," is nearly 2 million euros more than the previous record set at a similar auction at Ferrari's headquarters a year ago, it said in a statement.
Ferrari built just 22 Scaglietti-designed Testa Rossas with the signature pontoon fenders between 1957 and 1958. It was a formidable racer - a 300 horsepower V12 and nimble handling will do that - and Testa Rossas won 10 of the 19 races they entered between 1958 and 1961.
