Fencing never gets old

It never struck me like a sport for senior citizens but…

Apparently old people love it! at least the ones at Corpus Christi Catholic Home for retired priest and nuns in Melbourne, Australia, do. The over 80 years old athletes have been learning the art of fencing for nine months now, and apparently they are getting quite good at it. One of the care-takers from the home said the old people were a bit reluctant at first but after having a talk with the convincing instructor, they said yes.

Even 93 years old Sister Dolores says she loves the sport, even though she admits it’s a chalenge at her age and she’s always afraid she might fall over.

World’s biggest bra

What cup-size would you say that is?

You’d probably need a lot more letters in the alfabet to come up with the right answer, because that’s one big bra. I haven’t been able to find much info on it but it could have been created by someone who wanted to show his passion for women’s breast. That or some brand used it in a campaign. Either way, one thing is for certain, this is the world’s biggest bra.

Largest foosball table ever

Man would I like to have that baby in my living-room…

Unfortunately that is simply impossible, considering it is one of a kind and designed especially for UEFA Champion’s League Finals ad for Dutch beer, Amstel. Still only seeing it and imagining how playing foosball on a 22 player table would be like, is worth it. The table can be dismantled and packed into 6 cases for transportation. Who knows, maybe after they’ll have filmed the ad, they’ll auction it or something, so keep your ears open and your savings close by.

Biggest Mentos fountain ever

You know what happens if you drop a sweet mint into a bottle of coke right? What if 1500 people did it at the same time?

That’s what 1500 students from a University in Belgium tried to find out and also set a new world record for the world’s biggest Mentos fountain. It wasn’t the most important experiment in the lives of the young chemistry students, but I can bet it was the funniest one.

You can see the result of the experiment in the photos below, too bad I couldn’t find any more.

Naked in Barcelona

Well this guy has a pair of undershorts tattooed on his body so technically he isn’t naked.

If you’re ever in Barcelona, you might get “lucky” and run into “the old naked guy“. No one knows his name but everybody knows him, he’s kind of a local mascot, walking around in the nude with his huge penis hanging down halfway to his knees. Tourists either avoid him or just stop and stare at him, but he doesn’t seem to mind. The police have tried to reason with him and he has even been institutionalized a few times but he always came back.

There isn’t much more I can say about this naked man of Barcelona so I’ll just let the pics speak for themselves.

Women’s Rugby

I find men’s rugby really weird, but this is even more so.

I can’t think why anyone would want to play such a sport, I mean at leas in football you get to wear protective gear, but in rugby it’s just skin on skin and bone to bone, so to speak. I’ve seen some really gorilla-looking players so I can understand why they’d want to play this sport, but these women…Sure they have the right to play any sport they want but this doesn’t mean they’re safe from looking ridiculous while they do it. Too bad we don’t have a video too.

Here are some pictures of an Iranian women’s rugby team.

Street barbers in India

It seams most things in India are done on the streets.

Although they’re not quite as interesting as India’s famous street dentists, the street barbers are one of the country’s trade-marks. Sure the street is not the cleanest place to get a shave or a haircut but in a country where most can’t afford to go to fancy salons, they are a necessary evil.

Children’s cement factory

While this particular factory is hardly a place for children to play in, you can easily get confused.

This is one of the many amusement-park-looking cement factories belonging to Zapa Company, in the Czech Republic. Thanks to the unusual ornamentation of its equipment and transportation vehicles. Zapa has managed to become not only one of the most successful companies in the country, but also one of the most popular attractions. Although I doubt any parent would let their child play in such a dangerous environment, I have to admit it’s a very original idea and, on a subconscious level, makes the company more likable.

Just follow this link to Zapa‘s home site (which is also very colorful) and take a look at the photo gallery there.

Wacky World’s biggest things

What people wouldn’t do accomplish something remotely extraordinary…

I mean who would go out of their way to build the world’s largest teapot or the world’s biggest boot? Probably someone who wants to get noticed and acknowledged as a person who made something remarkable, and because they can’t be the person who comes up with the cure for cancer, they build something extremely large and funny, it’s as simple as that.

But I’m sure that they’re also very fun to make, just like everything that’s done passionately.

World’s ex-ugliest dog

Remember SAM, the ugliest dog ever, if you ask me.

So he died like 3 years ago, so what something like that doesn’t really die that easily you know, this kind of creature is hard to forget. SAM held the title of World’s Ugliest Dog for 3 straight years (2003, 2004, 2005) and he was striped of it by his own mortality, dying due to heart complications, at the age of 15…My guess is he looked in the mirror by mistake, but that’s less important.

SAM was a purebred Chinese Crested Hairless, but don’t imagine all of this race looks like that, oh no, he was just special. Taken in by Susie Lockheed back in 1999, SAM became an internet star, sporting his very own page on Wikipedia and some screen appearances.

To me, SAM will forever be the ultimate ugliest mutt, I don’t have a picture of him in my room or anything like that…

The Giants of the North

Or Gigantes do Norte, in their native Portuguese tongue are a very…special soccer team

What makes them so special is the fact that they are all vertically challenged people, playing against under-13 soccer teams in their native Brazilian town of Belem. What’s even more amazing is that they are attracting huge crowds at their matches, because they’re apparently quite the entertainers.

They’re not just a freak-show doing this to earn money, as some people might think, they are coached by professional coach Carlos Luchena and they were put together “in an effort to raise the profile of dwarves in Brazilian society and challenge ‘sizeist’ attitudes.

That’s commendable!

Japanese Rock’n-Rollers

Here’s what watching movies like Grease too many times can do to a man.

I haven’t been able to dig up too much on these silly looking guys, I just know they are some kind of entertainers in Yoyogi Park, Harajuku in Japan. Please, if you know more, don’t hesitate to let everybody know through a comment. I don’t what else to say but: LONG LIVE ROCK’N-ROLL!

This haircut is smoking!

And no, that’s not slang for cool.

I’ve heard about this technique a few years ago, back then it was the hottest thing in hairstyle, all the stars were lining up to try these new technique. I see that now it’s not as exclusive as it once was (those guys don’t look like stars to me), but it looks just as weird. I hear that one of the advantages of getting your hair cut this way is that it doesn’t grow as fast. I wonder if your hair stinks of smoke afterwards…

Tanning should be banned for some people

I can’t believe some people think getting a wacky tan makes them look sexier.

I don’t know about you guys, but when I look at some of these pictures I get hungry. Don’t they looked like huge pieces of fried chicken?!? And it’s not even natural, they either use tanning salons or that brown powder crap they rub all over their body. I posted a piece on metrosexual wanna-be‘s, and I thought I really found some unique pictures of unique people, but I see the disease is spreading!

World’s longest ear-hair

The longest ear-growing hair comes from India

Radhakant Bajpai has been acknowledged by the Guinness Book of Records as the man with the longest ear-hair on the face of the Earth. His ear-hair reaches 13.2 cm at it’s longest point, that’s about 5.19 inches.

Most people would probably feel ashamed if they had Bajpai‘s condition, but he takes great pride in his hair, and treats it with a lot of care. “Making it to the Guinness World Records is indeed a special occasion for me and my family. God has been very good to me!” he says.
