Got some time to kill? Well then, maybe you should start exploring the exciting world of papercraft! To get you started, here's a link to 100 free paper models and toys. Once you're done there, you might want to start checking out card modeling, build some skyscraper models, animals and motorcycles and when you get really good, faces of real people such as these. There's even some creative paper modeling websites out there for the kids and people who like Pokemon and Nintendo. And if all those links still aren't enough to satiate your new found lust for papercraft, check out this papercraft search engine for even more designs.

Wait wait wait. We hate steampunk but love papercraft? I need to start keeping notes.

DU: we just try to keep the BB-ers on their toes in terms of arbiters-of-cool. To grant them too much cool-trend-setting cred would lead to an ego-singularity. We don't want that: MeFi is within the event horizon of that event. I won't go into more details here, because that would be tipping our hat too much, but you should get the idea.

Here is a far-out project that I found on Flickr. It's a hybrid papercraft-photograph-globe that's similar to a polyhedral map.
