Costly papier-mâché
A British artist who made a papier-mâché sculpture from paper he found in a dumpster later discovered he’d cut up rare comics worth $30,000. Steve Eyre, a comic-store owner, was visiting an art exhibition in northern England when he noticed pages from a first edition of The Avengers—worth $15,000—stuck to the leg of Andrew Vickers’s sculpture Paperboy, alongside several other rare comics. “It would have been cheaper for Andrew to make this out of Italian marble,” said Eyre. Vickers laughed off the mistake, saying “money has not got such a value to me.”

Kim Kardashian plans Egyptian wedding
Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are planning to marry at an exotic ceremony in Egypt, says OK! Magazine. The rapper allegedly proposed to his reality-star girlfriend following the birth of their daughter, North West, and Kardashian quickly made it clear that she wanted to get hitched in the troubled Middle East nation. “She likes how Katy Perry and Russell Brand got married in India with an Indian-themed wedding,” said a source. “Kim thinks she’s the spitting image of the Egyptian goddess Isis, so [wants] an Egyptian-themed wedding, at the pyramids.”

How to quit smoking
A Turkish man is so desperate to give up smoking that he’s locked a cage around his head. Ibrahim Yucel, 42, repeatedly tried to kick his two-packs-a-day habit after his father died of lung cancer several years ago, but kept going back to the smokes. So Yucel designed a birdcage-like helmet to physically prevent himself from putting a cigarette in his mouth. He wears the device to work every day, and leaves the keys at home with his wife, to prevent a relapse.
