Sarah Palin Stripper Contest

4 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

Sarah Palin is probably the most popular figure in the US right now, there’s no doubt about that and entrepreneurs are using their image to gain some profit or some serious exposure that will ultimately turn into…profit. After the porn parody Nalin’ Palin, where industry star Lisa Ann played republican VP candidate and the Sarah Palin Halloween costumes that were a big hit, the owner of The Paradise Club, a strip club in Las Vegas, organized a contest for Sarah Palin look-alikes.

The contest attracted Palin look-alike strippers from all over the country and the winner got a $10,000 prize and a trip for 2, at the Washington DC inauguration, whether Palin wins or not. The girls were judged by their appearance and ability to debate.

Some girls really look like Sarah, check out the pics and video to see for yourself:

Record Attempt Close to Ending Tragically

Comments OffStumble it Icon digg it Icon

A Chinese balance-beam artist attempted a new world record for balancing on a wire 700 meters into the air with no safety measures. Unfortunately things didn’t go exactly as planned and one false step almost ended his career and his life. Fortunately he was quick enough to grab on to the wire he was balancing on.

Though he couldn’t control his emotions and started acting all hysterical, he managed to hold-on until the cavalry showed up and got him down safely. I bet he won’t be trying to break any records in the near future.

Wedding Marathon of Artsakh

Comments OffStumble it Icon digg it Icon

A true wedding marathon took place last week in the small Republic of Artsakh, internationally known as Nagorno-Karabakh. The fact that they are living in a territory disputed between Azerbaijan and Armenia, didn’t stop the inhabitants of this country to prove their  independence by organizing a wedding marathon.

700 pairs united their destinies in a ceremony that will go down in the record books as one of the biggest mass-weddings in history.

The Real Burger King

2 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

21-year-old Brad Sciullo of Uniontown is the first person to ever finish eating the monster-burger known as the Beer Barrel Belly Bruiser. The burger itself weighed 15 pounds but with all the toppings (lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, onions, mild banana peppers, mayonnaise, ketchup, mustard and relish)  and the buns, it reached 20,2 pounds. Sure any man could gobble down a delicacy like this but hardly anyone could do it in 5 hours.

Brad Sciullo managed to do it, but it wasn’t easy, as he himself admits: “About three hours into it, things got tough,”and everyone can understand why. But he pushed himself to the edge and manage to finish the whole burger and won a $400 prize, 3 t-shirts, a certificate and “a burger hangover” as the owner od Denny’s Beer Barrel Pub, where the event took place.

Asked why on Earth he decided to eat the giant burger, Sciullo said “I wanted to see if I could.”

World’s Tallest LEGO Tower Moves to Vienna

Comments OffStumble it Icon digg it Icon

A few months ago I wrote a post about the world’s tallest tower near Legoland Windsor, in England, but now it is forced to hand over the title to the new LEGO Tower in Vienna.

Built by hundreds of children near Vienna‘s city-hall, the new world’s tallest LEGO tower ended up being 29,48 meters tall, beating the previous tower of “only” 29,03 meters. The LEGO tower in Vienna was built using a crane and several support wires that secured it against strong winds. After the record was certified by an official judge from The Guinness Book of Records, the LEGO Tower was dismantled.

The Tower of Vienna was created to celebrate the festival “100 Years of Friends of Children“.

Ghetto Wedding

28 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

I never imagined weddings in South Central L.A. were tuxedo and nightgown only, but I didn’t think they were this “gangsta” either. I like it, it’s very original, everyone can wear a suit at a wedding but not anyone can wear a spray-painted extra-large T-shirt like that. If that’s what did it for them , then good for them, they keppin’ it real…

How to use 300, 000 euro-cents

3 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

Well the last thing any of us would do is laying it all on the asphalt as a beautiful mosaic right? Stefan Sagmeister of Sagmeister Inc. did just that during the first edition of Biennale, in Amsterdam. Entitled “Obsessions make my life worse and my work better“, Sagmeister‘s work of art was made out of around 300,000  euro- cent coins set up on a 20×42 square meters surface. This intricate installation was a challenge to all passers-by, with so much money at stake, would people leave it alone and appreciate its beauty or would they just go for the money out of greed?

After the show was over the complex art piece was simply sweeped away with a brush.

Human Smiley-Face for Google Earth

5 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

The people of Russian city Chelyabinsk have found a unique way to make their beloved city known to the entire world by using Google Earth.

In a carefully planed event, the citizens of  Chelyabinsk calculated when Google’s satellite, “Quick Bird”, passes directly over the city and formed a yellow smiley face that could be noticed from out of space. The result of their organized effort will be seen the next time Google Earth updates, but whether they get the exposure they were looking for or not, the people behind the Smiley-Face of Chelyabinsk have our congratulations for the effort.

2008 Red Bull Cliff Diving

1 CommentStumble it Icon digg it Icon

On August 23rd, an extraordinary even took place in the German port-city of Hamburg. The world’s top 10 cliff-divers gathered here to demonstrate their abilities and claim the title of 2008 Red Bull Cliff Diving Champion.  The winner of such a competition is not even important, just being able to accomplish such incredible acrobatic feats is remarkable. These people accelerate from 0 to 90 km/h and drop back to 0 in a free fall that only lasts 2.5 seconds.

Just watch the video and be amazed:

Rubber duckies invade London

2 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

I can here the Brits screaming “Run for your lives, the blue rubber duckies are attacking!!!”, must have been horrible…Well not really, it was just the annual Great British Duck Race, a charity event where people paid 2 ponds two enlist their rubber ducky in a race on the river Thames.

The prize was 10,000 pounds for the fastest floating rubber duck on the river and all the earnings went to charity. In case you were wondering, the rubber ducks were blue because last year, when they were yellow, people threw their own ducks without paying the fee.

This year’s Great British Duck Race scored a new world record for the most rubber ducks in one place, around 250,000. I wonder who had the “pleasure” of counting them.

Hail falls in Kenya

2 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

Don’t know if this is normal or not (I’d put my money on the “not”) but hail has fallen in Africa, Kenya specifically. Don’t think Kenyans are worried though, global warming is probably the last thing on their minds. Look at them all happily surprised, little do they know this could be yet another sign that our planet is going to hell really fast.

Star-Wars Wedding

I always knew the Star-Wars universe was pretty popular and that there are those that build their entire lives around it, but this is the first time I’ve seen a Star-Wars themed wedding.

You wouldn’t catch me dead at a Star-Wars convention, but from what I see in the photos this Star-Wars wedding turned out pretty cool.

World’s Fattest Man has an outing

23 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

Manuel Uribe, the 42-years old previous holder of the World’s Fattest Man title was finally able to leave his home and take a trip around the Mexican town of Monterey. Although he wasn’t able to walk on his own, the now 310 kilograms-heavy Mexican was able to enjoy a light snack on the shore of a lake and even exchange a few words with the locals.

Uribe is struggling to lose serious weight and so far he’s doing a good job, remember, he used to weigh a half-a-ton. He was carried through town in a special bed using a kind of forklift.

The Viking Festival of Catoira

Held every year on the first Sunday of August, in Catoira, Spain, the Viking Festival is a fun celebration in which the locals celebrate the role played by Catoira in the defense against viking invaders.

The highlight of the Viking Festival is the disembarking of viking-dressed locals from a 11th century viking ship and the battle between the Spanish defenders that always leads to all the combatants being drenched in wine.
