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.

Limbo-skating champion

I’ve always found skating quite difficult, but skating under cars…what more can I say?

Aniket Chindak is the unofficial world champion at skating under cars, he was able to skate under 57 cars in only 45 seconds, and now he’s getting ready to shatter his own record. “I first saw a girl skate under a car on TV two years ago and decided to learn how to do it myself. It took three months before I could get my body in the right position. Since then I have skated under lots of cars and have never hurt myself.” That’s pretty impressive considering the boy has been skating ever since he was 18 months old.

The boy has now started training for skating under 100 cars in order to set a record that no one can beat for a long time. Good luck wit that!

Are you sad? Take a happy pill!

Of course you’ll need to travel to Barcelona, Spain in order to get one but I hear they work every time.

This has to be one of the most ingenious ideas I have ever heard, we all know sweets make everyone feel better so why not use them as actual anti-depressives? That’s exactly what the Happy Pills shop in Barcelona is doing, it raps all kinds of tasty, gummy sweets in plastic bottles, labeled with pink crosses and prescriptions like: “against Mondays” or “against the intolerable lightness of being”. The shop is like a long hallway and you can get a bottle and a spoon and serve yourself from the various medicines.

I have to remember this place for when i visit Barcelona…hope it’s going to be soon!

Sindi, the juggling dog

I’ve seen dogs pull off amazing tricks but one that can actually balance tea cups on its paws is definitely something new. Sindi is an 8 year old Cocker Spaniel from England that could easily be working in a bar or caffe, she could carry the coffees on its paws and the spoons in her mouth.

The merry butchers

These guys give the expression “playing with your food” a whole other meaning and I don’t mean that in a good way. I have nothing against them killing that pig in the comfort of their own home, it’s a popular custom especially in Eastern-European countries, but what they’re doing in these photos is way out of line. People should respect their food, not use as a sick source of amusement…that;s what I think anyway.

3,2,1 launch piglet!

This is apparently how they used to test new inventions in the Soviet Union during the 50s and 60s (at least that’s when these photos are taken). In this experiment they got that little pig drunk by forcing it to drink wine (Kagor, maybe you heard of it) and launching it into the air using some kind of giant mortar cannon. Some of you might find it funny, but I just think it’s cruel.

I guess animal cruelty and animal testing are old issues that aren’t going away anytime soon…
