The Sand-Eating Woman

6 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

I’ve heard about a lot of weird things that people take pleasure in eating, but sand?

Apparently there is someone out there who not only eats sand, but considers it a delicacy. Not much is known about this woman, other than she lives in a Russian village and every day she goes out, fills her bucket with sand and…eats it. You can see from the pics that she likes her sand very much.

Mister Plastic Fingers

1 CommentStumble it Icon digg it Icon

This dude would make a great escape artist. I bet he could break out of a pair of handcuffs with ease.

Sure, he’s no Rubberboy, but I tried bending my fingers like that, and I almost broke one of them. Looking at some of the photos, I thought to myself ‘this doesn’t look too difficult’, but turns out I was seriously wrong. Either that or I have the stiffest hands on Earth.

Take a look at mister flexible here and let me know if you can pull of his hand-tricks. Don’t over-do it though, I take no personal responsibility for your injuries.

Goat on a Wire

2 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

Balancing on a wire is a tough job for a human, let alone for a goat. Still, the animal trainers at a Chinese circus managed to teach this goat how to keep its balance while having a small monkey perform stunts on its head.

And I thought Eskil Ronningsbakken’s balancing stunts were impressive. What this goat does is ten times cooler.

Paper-made Clothing

Comments Off on Paper-made ClothingStumble it Icon digg it Icon

Ever imagined wearing something as plain as paper? Well, with House-Wear Clothing, now you can.

Founded by Lisa Sansone, this environment-friendly clothing line is made out of a material called Tyvec, commonly used to make mailing envelopes.  That makes the clothes very recyclable after you’re done wearing them, so you can just dump them at the nearest Tyvec recycling center.

If you’re wondering, yes, House-Wear Clothing is reusable. That means you don’t have to throw your dress away if you get it dirty. You can pop it into the washing machine without worries. In fact, every time you wash them, the clothes become softer, smoother.

Every piece of clothing is hand printed with non-toxic dyes, so no two pieces are exactly alike.

Dog-o-Matic – The Pet Washing Machine

2 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

Smelly-dog-owners around the world, rejoice! The Dog-o-Matic washing machine has arrived.

Invented by Romain Jarry, a 31-year-old Frenchman, the Dog-o-Matic is a pet washing machine that turns your pooch from filthy to fluffy in just 30 minutes. Jarry says his machine proved a real success in his home town of St Max, and he’s now thinking of introducing it to the rest of France, and soon Britain.

He claims the Dog-o-Matic isn’t harmful to animals, as they just sit inside waiting to be washed and dried. I reckon that depends on how used the animals are to water, the puppy in the photos doesn’t seem very calm and comfortable. All the pet-owner has to do is put the dog/cat inside the Dog-o-Matic, set the wash cycle and select the animal’s size.

I have a feeling the Dog-o-Matic will be in a world of trouble once PETA hears about it, those guys don’t joke around when animal cruelty is mentioned

An Unlikely Duo

Comments Off on An Unlikely DuoStumble it Icon digg it Icon

Primates and dogs don’t normally get along too well, but Suryia the orangutan and Roscoe, a Blue Tick hound have become best friends.

Their beautiful friendship began when Roscoe followed some of the caretakers at a South Caroline animal shelter through the gates. As soon as she saw him, Suryia ran to him and started playing. Since that day, there’s nothing the two love more than swimming and rolling around together. The friendly orangutan even takes her buddy on his daily walks and occasionally feeds him some of her monkey biscuits. When bored, the two take a ride on Bubbles, a 27-years-old African elephant.

Word of their bizarre but beautiful relationship reached the media and now Suryia and Roscoe will be featured on one of Oprah‘s special shows, called Amazing Animal Friendship. National Geographic also paid them a visit.

Their bond might seem incredible, but if tigers and pigs can be friends, then anything is possible.

Artistic Statement Against Soda

1 CommentStumble it Icon digg it Icon

Juan Camillo Rojas, a very talented artist based in Miami, created ‘Enjoy’ as part of an artistic installation created to demonstrate how ideas could represent outside their usual meanings. In the case of ‘Enjoy’, the artists sought to raise awareness to the damages of drinking soda, or enjoying soda, a slogan used by the world’s biggest soda-company.

‘Enjoy’ was created from 18,000 nails, rusted using soda. Rojas used nails to neutralize the pozitive feelings associated with the word enjoy.

Japanese Pregnant Doll

Comments Off on Japanese Pregnant DollStumble it Icon digg it Icon

And I thought pregnant Trash Talkin’ Turleen was disgusting.

The pregnant doll and the models of human fetuses in different stages of development, were very popular items in 19th century Japan. They were part of educational and entertaining sideshows in Edo (present day Tokyo). The pregnant doll was originally created to teach midwives about giving birth, but the sideshows also attracted other people, curious about the human body.

In 1877, a hospital doctor showed off an elaborate set of models depicting various stages of fetal development. It was a big hit.

World’s Smallest Fast-Food Meal

1 CommentStumble it Icon digg it Icon

And here I though the normal McDonald’s hamburger was small. This thing isn’t even big enough for a smurf.

I can understand why people would go out of their way to cook the world’s biggest hamburger, but the smallest? You don’t even get a nice, filling dinner out of it. But, as an artistic achievement, I guess it deserves some praise.

The Pheromone Ring

Comments Off on The Pheromone RingStumble it Icon digg it Icon

Having problems getting a date? Wearing the S Ring on your finger will make all of them go away.

S Ring might not be the prettiest ring you can buy, but it’s definitely a lot more useful than all the accessories in your jewelry-box. This little baby comes with six pheromone-rich scents, three for each sex. You charge the ring with a hypodermic needle, and when you want to draw attention on yourself from the opposite sex, all you have to do is squeeze the sides of the S Ring to release the “love juice“.

I know this sounds like a great way to get laid, but don’t get carried away. Always make sure you use the right scent for the right sex. You don’t want a bunch of guys chasing you around, trying to rape you…do you?

Today’s Generation in Porcelain

Barnaby Barford is a British artist who takes both mass-produced and antique porcelain statuettes and reshapes them into sinister figurines representing the world of today.

Mister Barford says his most recent collection is called ‘The Good, The Bad and The Belle‘, and represents how the today’s youth is perceived by older generations. The pieces depict scenes of teen violence, our fascination with junk food, graffiti artists, and each has a witty name.

Donkey Basketball – Cruel Sport or Just Plain Fun?

8 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

Invented during the 1930s as a cheap form of recession entertainment, donkey basketball remains a popular sport in midwest America.

Basically, the tow four-player teams have to shoot hoops while riding on the donkeys. The animals often just lay down, crushed by the players’ weight and, in these situations, competitors are allowed to dismount and drag the donkey to the hoop. Donkeys can carry up to 68kg, but many of the donkey basketball players weigh considerably more.

This unusual sport is played mostly in school gyms, by school staff and local celebrities. PETA has denounced donkey basketball as animal cruelty, but the folks in Iowa, where these pics were taken, say they don’t pay much attention to that. ‘We’re just a bunch of good ol’ boys and farmers down here in rural Iowa, so we’re not worried about PETA.’ said Angela Stufflebeam, event organizer.

Before the beginning of a donkey basketball match, an announcement is made, saying the animals are treated humanely. But protesters say the donkeys are starved so they don’t defecate during the match, they are often kicked, pulled by their tails and ears, and get stressed by the chaotic atmosphere.

Donkey basketball has been banned in Portland, Oregon, Indiana, Ohio and Pennsylvania, but it’s still thriving in Iowa.

I say this is just as bad as riding ponies on thin ice.
