The only thing better than photos from the Department of Unexpected Interspecies Friendship is video footage. Vinz Barrachin shot this outrageously sweet video of a three-year-old colt nuzzling his bestie, who just happens to be a lovely white kitten. The kitten appears all too happy to receive so much affection from such an enormous friend. The best part is when the young horse uses his velvety upper lip to skritch the back of the kitten’s neck.

judge mathis, speaking the truth (via spring1999)
Some people build bookcases, some people build boats, but one person, a Japanese engineer named Hitoshi Takahashi, decided to build a gigantic robot beetle. Mr. Takahashi spent 11 years building this awesome 17-ton, diesel-powered mechanical horned beetle.
This great big bug-bot is called the Kabutom because the particular beetle after which it was modeled is called a “kabutomushi” in Japanese. It walks using all six of its legs and is able to carry up to six adult passengers, including Power Rangers.
