#455 Stars And Surprises

Stories of two hobbies that, if not extreme in nature, are being pushed to extreme lengths by passionate individuals. 

Kinder Surprise by Sepehr Jamshidi Fard

Hooman’s house is what you’d get if a clown car swerved into a museum – fun, wacky, educational, and with the implied rule that you must not touch the T-Rex fossil. The two-metre tall glass display case filled with Kinder Surprise toys is his crown jewel, and today he’s going for a World Record.

Suburban Stargazing by Andrew Grey
