While the bread and butter of Gizmodo UK is in the bits and bytes of technology, we have a lot of fun in the off-topic areas, with many of the stories being filed in the WTF category. Bookmark this page for the sillier stories, from ridiculous examples of body-art, to... sausages made of skittles?
Cut a hole in a box. Put your crashed Ferrari in that box. Make her put that box... in the living room. And that's the way you do it. Unbelievably, that's really how you create a Crashed Ferrari Coffee Table.
Double you tee eff doesn't begin to explain this. This lunatic takes being a pyro to the next level. He stuffs his mouth with some sort of powder, waves a fan through his ear and starts a fire THROUGH HIS MOUTH.
When someone has a constant live webcam feed set up in their home, it's usually a good bet that it's for something super pervy or really, really paranoid. But then there's that one-in-a-big-number chance that it's actually useful, like when this lady perchanced upon some dudes robbing her house and called the emergency number.
Ouch. Sting's free iPad app celebrating 25 years of squawking, apparently cost in the millions of dollars to make. The app combines music, concert footage, photographs and video, with a recording of Sting's October performance in the New York Beacon Theatre.

Marta Yegorovnam, who I'm assuming is either a lunatic or an evil prankster, says she has kept an alien corpse in her refrigerator for two years. Apparently, she found this green alien after a UFO crashed right outside her house.
The Facebook wall is our social document of record. Etched in rock like an Attic tablet, the things said on a wall provide a poignant look back at who said what, and when. Not anymore. Timeline lets you rewrite history.
This is crazy. New photos have appeared in Google Maps showing unidentified titanic structures in the middle of the Chinese desert. The first one is an intricate network of what appears to be huge metallic stripes. Is this a military experiment?
We all have opinions about the people on Big Brother-style TV shows. But spare a thought for nine girls who were duped into taking part in a fake show — then held captive while naked images of them were sold online.
When Giotto—considered the first artist of the Renaissance—painted this fresco at the Basilica of San Francesco d'Assisi in 1290, he hid something in plain view. It took 721 years and some close up photographies for someone to see it.
I love this. Someone noticed that movie posters are always the same and collected them to prove it. Some of the design clichés are hilarious, like Tiny People On the Beach With Giant Heads in the Clouds or Legs Wide Spread.
