What do you get when you combine bike parts, an electric motor, and a cow skeleton? Our peculiar object of the week was created by artist Billie Grace Lynn.

I wonder why a cow was chosen? A motorcycle is often referred to as a Iron Horse. With that in mind an actual Horse Skeleton Motorcycle would make more sense to me. I would imagine cows more related to cars. Think of the 'Bull Bars" on the big Dodge Ram trucks for instance.

Should men be able to give birth to children?


Koert van Mensvoort: Is the artificial womb frankenstein-like symbol of (male) engineers trying to steal the magical womb from women? Or… is it a feminist project and needed to reach through equality between the sexes? I personally lean towards the latter. To me it feels like progress if a girl can tell a guy to carry the womb for a change.
