I dare you to watch this viral video about what brought us together — both good and bad, both goofy and devastatingly sad — in 2012 and not start bawling at your desk.

What is this stunning piece of architecture, you ask? It’s a Belgian hotel called CasAnus, which allows visitors to spend the night in a replica of a colon, complete with a giant anus. Hey, whatever floats your boat, right? With that in mind, we thought it might be a good time to round up some of the other unique hotels that caught our attention this year.

Fill in the blank. It’s time to move when __________. Correct! When a moldy mushroom patch sprouts up in your apartment. Natalie Wise of Sacramento made a gnarly discovery while cleaning her apartment. “I looked down to vacuum and I saw this [fungus] … At first, I thought [my son] had peeled an orange, and I got down closer and I realized it was a mushroom.” In the two years that Wise and her son have been living there, her apartment has flooded six times. The management company have ignored Wise’s request for help with the fungus patch in her living room. Yes, it’s definitely time to move. [FOX]
When we say the “best” boyfriends, we mean the worst, or in some cases, the most ridiculous. We’ve rounded up the best of our “Be My Boyfriend” series this year. Really, we’re not planning on dating these guys, but said in the most diplomatic way possible, we marvel at them. These guys exist…
In a new project called “I’m Not A Look-Alike!”, Canadian photographer François Brunelle brought together unrelated strangers who could be twins. He invited these pairs of dopplesträngers (I’m coining that term by the way) to his studio and photographed them together. These pictures are kind of blowing my mind.

GUHHHHH. I need to know how a seven-month-old baby got a feather stuck in her neck. Mya Whittingon’s parents thought the girl had a swollen lymph node on her neck. The doctors agreed and sent her home with some antibiotics. The next day Mya’s neck swelled to the size of a golfball, so her parents took her back to the doctor’s office, where they plucked a two-inch long feather from her neck. They think that Maya swallowed it or inhaled it somehow from a down pillow and it lodged itself in her throat and travelled to her neck. WHAT?! TELL ME HOW! I personally think Maya’s a new kind of bird super heroine. This is an origin story. I can feel it.[Huffington Post]
