I THOUGHT IT WAS JUST CRAYONS BUT THEN IT WASN’T
The only known photo of Albert Einstein without his mustache. Taken in 1957 only a year before his death, the radiation from the Manhattan Project had taken its toll and thinned his once wild hair, and eradicated his facial hair to the point he no longer felt comfortable with a “weak” mustache.
We all know the iconic Einstein look, but this is how he appeared when he departed the world, shot in January 1958 by Valerie Solanas in an pointless attempt to impress actress Jodie Foster.

do you ever wish you could just stop time for like a couple weeks so you could just sleep and do whatever you want and just get your shit together and then after that time would just start back up again and you wouldn’t have missed anything because you would just pick up where you left off
H.R. Giger tells a story in one of his books about vacationing on some exotic lake with friends. One night he went out swimming alone on the lake but didn’t get very far because he kept getting caught up in seaweed, long rope like slippery masses of it. So he had to turn back. The next day, his friends took him out on the lake by day in a boat, and he saw that the lake was completely filled with long giant worms, like lamprey or hagfish, and that he had the night before been tangled up not in seaweed, but huge disgusting worm things. I imagine this is roughly what he was mired in.
And thank god it happened because it made for some phenomenal artwork.
At first glance, these objects may look like planets but they are actually photos of the bottoms of frying pans.
