The Obama Action-figure

7 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

Obama-mania obviously hit Japan as well, as they rush to buy the best Obama action-figure ever.

Barack Obama is already a hero not only for Americans, but also for the Japanese. The Obama action-figure can be found on the shelves of many japanese toy-stores, together with patriotic accessories, like the American flag and changeable palms, to better express himself.

Obama-san also has some damn cool weapons to fight terrorism, political opponents and maybe even the economic crysis.  The new American president comes equipped with a katana (Japanese sword) and wakizashi (long knife), a gun and a rifle, but also with a very cool light-saber, to help him fight his nemesis, Darth Vader(?!?).

The Obama action-figure was created by Hong Kong-based toy company DID Corporation and can be bought online here

Best Bull-bar in Russia

1 CommentStumble it Icon digg it Icon

It’s not your average bull-bar but it works.

What do people do when they don’t have enough money to install a normal bull-bar on their SUVs? Well in Russia they just get a log and attach it to the front of the vehicle with some iron bolts. It doesn’t look as good as a normal bull-bar, but it’s a lot cheaper and it gets the job done.

The Backpack Bike

2 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

It’s exactly what it sounds like, a bike and a backpack at the same time.

Perfect for down-hill bikers, the backpack bike can be folded and carried as a simple backpack when you’re climbing to the hilltop, and converted to a sturdy mounatin-bike ready to tackle the rough terrain, on your wayback down. It’s made out of an ultra-light material that makes it easy to carry by both men and women.

Hidden Command Center

29 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

And a great way to hide from your parents without getting bored.

I know it looks like an ordinary closet from the outside, and that’s the idea, but inside lies a powerful command center from where a computer geek does great things like…playing World of Warcraft, hacking people’s computers and other fun activities.

This has to be one of the best computer hideouts I’ve ever seen. Not recommended for claustrophobics though.

Longest Eye-lashes Ever

9 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

And I do mean long eye-lashes.

Fashion has been getting weirder and weirder for quite a while now, so sooner or later something like this had to happen. People are getting bored of hair-extensions and they’re getting their eye-lashes extended. It seems sight isn’t an issue when you’re trying to be a true fashionista.

I wonder what’s next, pubic hair extensions?

Believe it or not, this delicious looking bed has it’s own page on Facebook.

This fluffy hamburger is actually a cheeseburger (notice the cheesy matress). It has all the right ingredients, including, pickles, letuce and sliced tomatoes, all it needs is a little ketchup. Actually a lot of ketchup, but who cares, the Hamburger Bed looks good enough to eat any way you look at it.

You want your kid to be cool? Get him a Bling Teeth grill and he’ll shine like a star. At least his mouth will.

Here is one thing I never thought would be sold as a children’s toy, bling teeth. Vampire teeth, sure, teeth with a gap, why not, but BLING TEETH?!? Who would anyone want to make their kids look like young gangstas or pimp daddies?

So don’t forget, if u want your kid to have a “fat” look, buy him a Bling Teeth grill, or better yet get him the whole collection.

Racing Limousines

Comments Off on Racing LimousinesStumble it Icon digg it Icon

GP Limos is certainly an original idea. Nobody has ever created a racing vehicle to fit 6 passengers and the driver.

Mike Pettipas is the mastermind behind GP Limos and creator of the World’s Fastest Street-Legal Limousine. The concept of GP Limos is pretty simple, build a racing car that looks like a Formula 1 car, fit it with a powerful engine and accomodate 6 passengers.

No info is revealed regarding the GP Limos‘ engines but it’s got to be something realy impressive, if Pettipas wants to beat the Bugatti Veyron‘s speed record of 253 mph.

GP Limos is a service offered to the public, so if you want a lap around the track in one of these babies just go the official GP Limos website and get in touch.

Purification by Ice in Russia

1 CommentStumble it Icon digg it Icon

To celebrate the Orthodox holiday of the Epiphany, on January 19, Russians plunge into ice-cold water to purify their bodies.

In a ritual imitating the baptism of Jesus Christ in the River Jordan, wholes are cut into the ice covering rivers and ponds across Russia and priests bless their waters. People actually stand in line, late into the night, wearing only their swim-suits or underwear, to jump into the ice-cold water.

The cold water is said to have a cleansing effect on those brave enough to jump into it, but some of the brave swimmers just do it for fun and thrills. Not recommended for the faint-hearted, the ritual of the Epihany helps harden the body and make it more resisliant to illness.

Surely some good Russian vodka helps the swimmers get through the ritual a lot easier.

How the Dutch Welcome the New Year

Comments Off on How the Dutch Welcome the New YearStumble it Icon digg it Icon

I always thought celebrating New Year’s was all about fun. How can bathing in ice-cold water be considered and enjoyable experience…unless you’re a seal or a penguin?

About 6,500 Dutch gathered on Scheveningen Beach, in The Hague, for a quick splash in the waves, to celebrate the coming of a new year. Both young and old, most of the crazy swimmers said they do this kind of thing for kicks, because being normal is simply too boring. I agree with that, but swimming in water with a temperature of just 6 degrees Celsius? No thanks, I think I’d rather jump out of an airplane.

Barack Obama’s LEGO Inauguration

9 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

If you couldn’t watch Obama’s inauguration in person, you can do it at Legoland California.

Over 1,000 figurines and hundredes of thousands of bricks were used to recreate Barack Obama’s hystorical inauguration on the steps of the capitol. Barack Obama, his wife Michelle and their two daughters, Sasha and Malia, are depicted as he takes the oath.

The figurines used in the LEGO recreation of the inauguration were all faceless, but one could recognize famous personalities like, ex-president George W. Bush and his wife Barbara, the next Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her husband, former president of the US, Bill Clinton, Aretha Franklin and Oprah Winfrey.

The LEGO inauguration will remain on display at Legoland California until May, so you have plenty of time to stop by.

Sleeping in a Barrel

Comments Off on Sleeping in a BarrelStumble it Icon digg it Icon

Sleeping in a wine-barrel without getting drunk is bvery possible at a lovely, little hotel in the Netherlands.

De Vrouwe van Stavoren is probably the only hotel in the world that offers accomodation in real wine barrels. They are indeed genuine 15,000 liters Swiss wine barrels converted into small luxury rooms. Every room is equipped with a television-set, radio, shower and toilet, so you pretty much have everything you need.

The one thing that might bother you, if you’re not a wine enthusiast, is the smell of wine that the barrels still maintain. All in all the Barrel Hotel, in Stavoren, northern Netherlands, makes for a very pleasurable experience.

Where Electronics Go to Die

3 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

No, electronics are not recycled the same way as ordinary trash. Electronics have their own graveyard, and it’s called Guiyu.

Guiyu is a town in China that is known as the largest electronic waste site on the planet. One million tons of electronics waste are shipped here every year, mostly from North America, Japan and South Korea. Since 1995, Guiyu has been attracting peasants from the area to work as electronics processors. They only receive about $1,50 for a sixteen hours work-day collecting valuable metals and usable parts from broken devices.

Guiyu is a very dangerous work environment, with some of the highest levels of dioxin ever recorded. The soil is saturated with led and other heavy metals while the water from the area is undrinkable. People that visit Guiyu experience strange headaches and metallic taste in their mouths.

Despite this, Guiyu’s electronic waste business is very profitable,  each year producing more than$75 million.

The Amazing Creature That Is the Silkworm

Comments Off on The Amazing Creature That Is the SilkwormStumble it Icon digg it Icon

Silkworms are extraordinary creatures that play a huge economic role in the world of man.

If you didn’t know the silkworm is the only completely domesticated insect in the world, which means it can not survive naturally in the wild.They are bread for their precious cocoon, that is processed into the precious material we know as silk.

Silkworms are only fed mulberry tree leaves, on which they nibble non-stop, day and night. This causes them to grow incredibly fast and start creating their precious cocoon. That is made out of a continuous silk thread between 300m and 900 m long.

Koreans appreciate the silkworm as a delicacy as they are a great source of protein and after they die they become infected with Beauveria bassiana fungus, which is used in Chinese traditional medicine.
