A Real Olympics Fan

1 CommentStumble it Icon digg it Icon

How far would you go to show how much you like a sports competition? I bet you wouldn’t go nearly as far as this dude, who tattooed his forehead with the 2008 Beijing Olympics logo and most of his body with the Olympic mascots, the Chinese Wall and other Chinese stuff. Now that’s a real Olympics fan if I ever saw one.

A Collection of Hindu Mustaches

Comments OffStumble it Icon digg it Icon

Mustaches are very popular in Hindu countries like India and I’m not talking the kind of “childish” mustache Brad Pit recently grew, but serious muffs you can wrap around your fingers. I wonder how these guys drink milk and yoghurt.

Yellow Treehouse Restaurant

Comments OffStumble it Icon digg it Icon

Yellow Treehouse Restaurant is an environmental project by the Pacific Environment Architects ltd. (PEL) and, as you can see from the photos” it’s a beauty. They’ve managed to build a chrysalis-like restaurant 10 meters above ground, around a 40-meters-tall redwood.

The Yellow Treehouse is a marketing project of Yellow Pages, a company that is trying to get more exposure. And that’s perfectly ok, there’s nothing wrong with a little publicity, but for a company that uses that much paper to use environment as a marketing scheme…

You can book a table at the Yellow Treehouse Restaurant if you’re ever in New Zealandand, I’m sure it will be different that any other eating experience you’ve ever had. Here is the official site

Las Vegas Meets Snow

1 CommentStumble it Icon digg it Icon

The world is getting weirder and weirder each year. After hail fell in Africa a few months ago, now it snowed in Las Vegas for the first time ever. We’re talking about the Nevada Desert here, snow isn’t supposed to fall in the desert. But, as you can see from the photos the impossible just became possible. I wonder what’s next, the ice cap will start to melt? Oh…wait…

Show Your Kids The Real World

2 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

If you’re one of those parents who want to show their offsprings what the real world is like, from an early age, than here are some great Christmas toys for them. Deadly car accidents, riots, train wrecks, man-slaughter, theft and more are all available for your children. Not the kind of present I’d buy my kids, but maybe there are people out there who are interested.

Office Creativity

We all know how boring office life can be. And don’t give me that “not my life, I work my ass-off every day”, I watch The Office, ok? Anyway boredom brings out the creativity in people, especially when they’re at work, and they come-up with the most ingenious things. Check out this cool but “lethal” weapon for example:

How to Make an Alcoholic Ice-cream

Comments OffStumble it Icon digg it Icon

As you probably know alcohol doesn’t normally freeze, but as it turns out not even strong drinks like vodka, brandy and whisky can’t whitstand extreme cold. So if you want to enjoy a nice cold, alcoholic ice-cream, take a boutle of booze at -55 degrees Celsius and wait…preferably inside.

Ain’t Indifference a Bitch?

6 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

I’ve seen people (drunks) pass-out in public places before, on benches, in parks, on the sidewalks, but never on the street, where they could get run-over by passing cars. I don’t know if this girl is drunk or sick, but the fact that no one even bothers to roll her over to the sidewalk is just disgusting. Oh yeah, the guy on the bike stops and covers her up with an umbrella…wtf is that about, he couldn’t check if she was ok but he cared that she was getting wet? And she was on the damn street, she was gonna get wet anyway

This must happen very often in China, otherwise I can’t explain why they just ignore the poor girl like that.

Meet a Superwoman

Comments OffStumble it Icon digg it Icon

Doctors can’t really explain why jessica Cox was born with no hands. None of the prenatal tests her mother took showed there was anything wrong with her. And yet she was born with this rare congenital disease, but also with a great spirit.

Jessica started using her legs for things most of us can only do with our hands, from a very young age. She learned how to eat, how to write and throughout her childhood she got involved in activities like dancing, swimming and gymnastics. She took up tae-kwan-do at the age of 10 and she got her black belt at 14. She has a no-restrictions driving license, she flies planes and she can type 25 words a minute.

Jessica Cox is certainly not to be pitied, if something she should be envyed because she has done some things many of us will probably never do, and she did it with no hands.

Aaron Fotheringham – Extreme Wheelchair Athlete

Comments OffStumble it Icon digg it Icon

Impossible is nothing!

I love that motto and it fits Aaron Fotheringham perfectly. He’s a 17-year old Extreme wheelchair athlete, competing against BMX riders in skate-park competitions. Fotheringham suffers from Spida Bifida and has been spending his life in a wheelchair since the age of 8. As a young kid he used to watch his brother ride his BMX at the skate-park and one day he took his advice and started riding in his wheelchair. He loved it so much he never stopped since. He got a new, lighter wheelchair, with four-wheel suspension that allowed him to perform most of the tricks BMX riders perform.

In 2006 Aaron Fotheringham ranked forth in a BMX competition in Sunny Springs Skate Park. He has suffered many injuries while practicing his tricks although he first tries them out on cushions and on hard plastic sheets before performing them on skateboard ramps.

Pokemon Fanatic

16 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

Pokemon was quite a phenomenon a few years back. Kids were trying to collect all the cute monsters from the TV series and pretty much anything related to the popular cartoon. This girl took the the Pokemon motto “Gotta catch’em all” seriously and I think she just may have pulled it off. If not she came pretty close, just look at all the Pokemon and Pikachu stuff she managed to get her hands on. I guess she could open her very own Pokemon Museum, or make a fortune selling it to other fans who I’m sure would love to add to their own collections.

The Pokemon-mobile is by far the most impressive item on this fanatic’s collection. Nicely done, I guess…altghough it is a bit scary.

Lalibela

2 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

 If you’re planning to travel to Africa, you might consider visiting the Ethiopian city of Lalibela, where you can find the only rock-hewn monolithic churches in the world. Built between the 12th and 13th century, the town of Lalibela was meant to be the new Jerusalem, after the Holy City fell to the Muslims, in 1181.

The 13 churches are either carved in vertical cliffs, in natural caves or right into the ground and separated by trenches. They were all hand-carved by the Ethiopian Orthodox Christians and the technical details are studying material even for modern architects. The churches of Lalibela are all connected through tunnels and the trench system transports the water to the nearby River Jordan. Anyone who knows the heavy rains that fall in Ethiopia, can appreciate this evacuation system.

All the religious structures of Lalibela are named after buildings in Jerusalem.

Pen-covered Mercedes-Benz

Comments OffStumble it Icon digg it Icon

Costas Schuler saw a book about art cars 5 years ago and was fascinated by them. He knew he wanted to make one of his own but didn’t know where to start, until one morning he woke up and knew he wanted to do something with pens. So he started covering his old 1981 Mercedes -Benz with pens, and he’s been doing it ever since using pens donated from people all around the world.

Costas is known as The Pen-Guy and his car is called Mercedes-Pens and together they travel the country collecting pens and putting smiles on the faces of those who spot them. The Mercedes-Pens is now covered with over 10,000 pens both on the inside and the outside.

For more info on The Pen Guy and his creation, visit his official site.

Custom Wheels Chairs

The guys at Emosign came up with an innovative idea to improve our sitting pleasure. The Evolution One custom chair is a leather chair that comes with beautiful custom wheels. The car rims are just for design, they don’t help the chair move but they do get the imagination going. Take a look at these beauties:
