Geeks are Sexy contributor John just sent me those, and, well, I just had to share them with you! Sure, the holiday season isn’t there yet, but hey, we can always start a little early, right? I’m not sure if you can order these from North America though, but they are available in the UK.

Edit: Yep, their “delivery” section mentions they accept International orders, so if you really want one and you’re on the other side of the “pond,” you probably can!

Doctor Who Fan Gets Surprise At Auto Shop [Pic]

by JLister

A massive Doctor Who fan who posts at Tumblr under the name TheTraciWho recently took her car in for servicing. It’s covered in decals, lanyards and even a mini-figure celebrating the show, so the mechanic will have been able to spot her fandom. They left a note that made clear that appreciation is shared:

A Game Collection That Looks Like A Museum

High-level game collectors are an interesting bunch of people. Their drives, motivations and preferences when it comes to curation say so much about what they value in gaming. Austrian collector Andranik Ghalustians is no different.

These Amazing Carved Pumpkins Will Blow Your Mind with Delight [Picture Gallery]

by Geeks are Sexy

villa11

Ray Villafane (and his team!) from Phoenix, Arizona-based Villafane Studios makes some of the most incredible and beautiful carved pumpkin I’ve ever seen. If you look around online, there’s nothing quite like what he does, he’s an absolute genius. Villafane Studios gave us their permission to post some of our favorite picks from what they’ve done in the past. If you’re reading this from the front page, be sure to hit the “read more” link below to view the rest of the pictures!

From Villafane Studios:

In 2004 Ray declared that his business would be called Villafane Studios, the name implying that the company would represent a studio of artists and not just himself as a solo artist. This simple vision was the foundation behind this company and evidence that you have to really believe that what you want is obtainable and move toward it. Flash forward to current day and you can find Ray and his hand-chosen team of elite artists demonstrating their talents worldwide. The vision of Villafane Studios is to inspire creativity and imagination in people young and old through the medium of temporary art.

Smell Proves Key To Paralyzed Man Walking

by JLister

olfactory

A paralysed man is able to walk again thanks to his nasal cavity. Surgeons used cells from Darek Fidyaka to bridge the gap in his spinal cord and promote regrowth.

Fidyka was left unable to walk after being repeatedly stabbed in the back in a 2010 attack that paralyzed him below the chest.

The surgery, carried out by Polish surgeons with the assistance of British scientists, took advantage of the unique nature of the nose. When nerves cells (marked “6” above) in the nose come into contact with molecules carrying odors, they pass the messages on to the olfactory bulb (marked “1”), which is a part of the brain immediately next to the top of the nasal cavities.

Unlike any other part of the nervous system, olfactory nerve cells can be continually replaced by the body after damage. That may have developed because the cells are exposed to the risk of damage, such as from injuries to the nose or toxic fumes. The regenerative ability is why permanent loss of smell is rare, even after major damage to the nose.

Two years ago surgeons removed one of Fidyka’s two olfactory bulbs and used it to grow ensheathing cells, which are what allow the olfactory nerve cells to regrow. They then made around 100 injections of the ensheathing cells above and below the 8mm gap in his spinal cord which had led to the paralysis. Finally they put four strips of nerve tissue across the gap.

It appears that, as hoped, the ensheathing cells encouraged the spinal cord cells to regenerate. They then effectively used the nerve tissue strips as a bridge until the spinal cord cells from both sides of the gap connected with one another and restored the connection across the full length of the spinal cord.

After extensive exercise and rehabilitation, Fidyka can now walk, albeit using a frame. He’s also recovered some sensation in the bladder and bowel.
