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:

Rotating House

4 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

Environment is a very popular issue nowadays so environment-friendly houses are finally becoming interesting. Domespace invented their semi-spherical houses over 30 years ago but only a few of them have been purchased and only around France, especially in Brittany, where the company is based.

The Domespace house plans were designed to optimize warmth by natural means, so the house actually turns to follow the sun and gain as much energy as it needs to keep temperature at an ideal level. If you don’t want warmth and sun-rays you can just set it to turn its windows away from the sun. You can command the engine to turn the house at a certain time or program it to do a full day rotation.

These days Domespace houses only come with an engine, but a few years ago if you wanted to buy or rent a house, you had to move them manually. I can imagine such a house for lease: “It’s a great house, spacy, full of light…only thing is you have to turn it yourself”.domespace_house.jpg

Hunterville is a village in New Zealand, established in 1884 by George Hunter and that according to the 2006 Census has a population of only 440. But that doesn’t stop it from gathering huge crowds from all over the island for the unique Huntaway Festival.

The Huntaway is a fun festival featuring contests like the Dog Braking Contest, pig yarding, speed shearing and the main attraction, The Shemozzle. This a special obstacle race for men or women  and their dogs, across steep hills, slipery slopes and disgusting food-stops that include sheep eyes, worms, bugs and raw meat, just to name a few.The obstacles of the Shemozzle are evealed to the contestants only 3 minutes before the race so no one can say they are really prepared.

Scarriest Dog Photos Ever?

8 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

I remember seeing one of these photos on some random blog a while ago and I remember thinking “man I wouldn’t want to be in the shoes of the guy that pissed this dog off”. Today, after looking at the rest of the photos I realized the dog wasn’t angry at all, that’s how he expresses himself when he’s playing with his balls. Well, not his balls, balls…you know what I mean and if you don’t, just take a look at the pics below:

The Dog Car

Remember the movie “Dumb and Dumber” starring Jim Carey and Jeff Daniels? That was the first thing that popped into my mind when I saw this puffy treasure. I remember that goofy car of theirs with the red tongue sticking-out and this is comes pretty close. My compliments to the designer. Here is the Dog Car:

Margay – The Tiger Cat

47 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

The Margay is a solitary wildcat with some very unique characteristics. Its look alone make it stand-out although it is very solitary people rarely have the chance to see it. The Margay is one of the few animals in the world that can climb trees with their heads facing down, thanks to their very special joints, able to turn up to 180 degrees.

The Margay is on the endangered animals list, but no one really knows how large their population really is  between Mexico and Argentina.Margays don’t take well to humans invading their habitats and sacientists say they are so well adapted to life in trees that they can go their entire lives without touching the ground.

Like all cats, Margay see very well at night and have no problem feeding of birds, reptiles and squirrels, if they can catch them.

Edit: Guys I apologize for the grammar and spelling mistakes but I only do this as a hobby and most of the time I write and post the photos in a hurry. Hope you understand and thanks for stopping by. I posted a link to where I found the photos, it’s a Russian photo site, but I doubt they can take credit for them.

There’s more than one side to everything, apparently the human brain included. Some ingenious minds created a sort of cube puzzle that shows the human brain from every side. Have a look:
