Eating the Bull’s Eye

4 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

Instead of hitting the bull’s eye some people choose to eat it.

I can’t believe they sell something as disgusting as a bull’s eye as food in a supermarket. Even more surprising is the fact that there are people who would buy, boil and eat something like that. Sure, it’s a matter of cultural diversity, but damn that bull’s eye looks anything but edible.

Commando Bentley

Comments OffStumble it Icon digg it Icon

Army-camouflage has to be the worst pain choice for a Bentley.

I think I’d rather drive Paris Hilton’s pink Bentley than get behind the wheel of this odd looking thing. I think army-camouflage should be banned as a luxury vehicle paint, it just makes no sense.

1 CommentStumble it Icon digg it Icon

The Sculpture imitates the natural landscape of the adjacent London Plane Trees, while the changing pattern of the lights reveals and reflect the never ending rhythm of the surrounding domestic, financial and commercial activitiesThis  is how artist Pierre Vivant described his work of art, when he completed it in 1998.

The Traffic Light Tree can be found on the traffic control roundabout, at the junctions of Heron Quay Bank, Marsh Wall and Wesferry Road.

Barbie Got Old

11 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

Barbie dolls may be forever young, but the real-life Barbie ages just like every one of us.

The woman you see in the photos is Angelyne, a local pseudo-celebrity in Los Angeles and Hollywood, who compares herself to the famous Barbie. She started gaining notoriety when a series of billboards featuring her started popping up around Los Angeles, in the early 80s. She made an appearence on television, during that time, on an Alan Thicke show, but since then her bilboards got more coverage than she has.

Angelyne drives a pink Corvette with the shortened “ANGLYNE” license plates and has a pink maltese named Buddha. Though it was believed a wealthy husband pays for all the Angelyne billboards around LA, Angelyne, who is single, credits “investors: for financing her advertising.

Angelyne once had a billboard that said “Barbie wishes she were me”. I bet it’s the other way around now.

Disney Makes Food Now?

1 CommentStumble it Icon digg it Icon

Times are hard and the economic crisis is leaving its mark on all of us, but it seems Disney is feeling it the most. As you can see in the photos there are all sorts of Disney foods available for purchase, from pate to a cheap kind of salami, called “parizer”.

These are clearly not original Disney products, just like the Street Fighter energy drink is also clearly a fake, but it’s interesting to see how far some companies can go to sell their merchandise.

Biggest Boar Ever?

8 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

I searched for some info about whether this really is the biggest boar ever seen, but I couldn’t find anything conclusive. In any case this is one big animal and I bet boars don’t get much larger than this. But like anything else that lives and breathes, it had to be hunted down and killed by “brave” hunters. After all why let it leave peacefully in its environment when we can cut of his head and place it on our trophy wall? Makes perfect sense to me.

Gay Bob – The World’s First Gay Doll

Comments OffStumble it Icon digg it Icon

First launched back in 1977 by Harvey Rosenberg, Gay Bob was the first gay doll ever created. Bob was 13 inches tall, had blond hair, a pierced ear and wore a flanel shirt, tight jeans and cowboy boots. Gay Bob was anatomically correct and was created as a cross between Robert Redford and Paul Newman.

Bob’s box was shaped like a closet and it came with a catalog from where you could order additional clothing for your gay doll. It created quite a lot of controversy in a time when homosexuality was not as “popular” as it is today.

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.

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:
