The clock without face

"Is there really buried treasure? Yes. What is the treasure? Twelve emerald-studded numbers pried from the Emerald Khroniker, a legendary clock. But what are they really? Twelve emerald-studded numbers designed and hand-crafted by Anna Sheffield. Anna is a New York-based jewelry designer, the founder of Anna Sheffield Fine Jewelry, Bing Bang and Bespoke. Her work is sold at Barney's, Urban Outfitters, and around the world. What do the numbers look like? Each one is different, and all are pretty sweet. No one will know what each number looks like until that piece is dug up. Where are the numbers now? They're buried in twelve holes across the country. How do I find the treasure? Study the clues in the book — everything you need is there. There will also be extra info on this website and at certain bookstores (full list coming soon). Can I have a clue? Check this website. Visit a bookstore. Attend an event (tour schedule coming soon). Mostly, read the book."

The High Weirdness Project

"In Sanitus Speramus. Welcome to the High Weirdness Project, a SubGenius exercise in high weirdness. In 1994, the First Online Church of "Bob" was founded, based upon the principles of the sacred tome High Weirdness by Mail (Rev. Ivan Stang, 1988). In the years since its foundation, the Church has promoted and encouraged the use of information warfare to expose the inner workings of the Conspiracy. The Web site for the Church was founded in 1995. On the tenth anniversary of its foundation, in 2005, the First Online Church of "Bob" announced the commencement of The High Weirdness Project: an open-source wiki that invites YOU to take part in the ongoing war against the forces of the Conspiracy. Praise "Bob!" "

The museum of extraordinary objects

"Piecemeal bodies sit in high-tech chairs, with nightmarishly inappropriate heads staring at you. It sounds like the laboratory of a mad scientist, but Berlin's Museum for Extraordinary Objects is actually a playground full of jumbles of bizarre found art. The Designpanoptikum, aka the Museum For Extraordinary Objects is the work of Russian-born artist Vlad Korneev, who collected these objects as props for his photographic works. The unifying theme of these weird object is the fact that their outward appearance was determined by function rather than form."
