Cool Uses of a Garbage Container

Comments OffStumble it Icon digg it Icon

Here are some ideas of how you could use a garbage container if littering stops being such a big issue. I like the idea of turning it into a pool, if you can manage to get the garbage stench out of it. But with littering a very big problem worldwide I think everyone should use garbage cans and containers for their original purpose, that would make our world a lot cleaner.

Becoming a Millionaire is Easy!

If you live in Zimbabwe, that is. Due to the country’s hyperinflation rate of over 231,000,000% a year, the financial authorities were forced to release larger and larger bills in order to help people buy the simplest things without carrying bricks of bills  with them. When the $10,000,000 bill was released early this year, it was worth about $4 US, but it soon became as worthless as the previous bills and now you can find the 100 billion dollars bill which you can use to buy…3 eggs.

When people want to go to a restaurant they are again forced to carry mountains of money with them. This all began in the year 2000, when president Mugabe came to power and transformed the whole country into a giant agricultural field. Now the inflation is through the roof, 80% of the population is unemployed and a third of the population has left the country. At least they can take pride in the fact that they have the highest denomination bills in the world.

IC3 – Intelligent Cutlery

Comments OffStumble it Icon digg it Icon

If you’re careful about what and how much you it, than IC3 is the perfect gadget for you. It’s made-up of a computerized handle and 3 interchangeable eating tools: a fork, a knife and a spoon, each with their own special features. The fork measures food composition, such as fat, sugar or protein levels, the spoon weighs your bites and the knife acts as a thermometer, taking temperature readings from your food. Together these three do a great job of replacing the normal nutritionist.

The IC3 Cutlery has been presented and is still on display at the Designparcours 2008 exhibition in Munich, Germany.

Cats and Dogs Rivalry at its finest

5 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

What happened to the good all days when dogs did what they were supposed to do, chase cats? I’ve seen dogs restrain themselves from attacking felines because of their masters but this display of unusual friendship between a cat and a dog is a little hard to take? what’s next, hamsters sleeping next to snakes?

We’ve seen piglets taken in by a dogs, tiger pups raised by a monkey, it won’t be long until we see kittens nursed by dogs…what a world!

1967 Mustang Trike

4 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

You might not recognize the 1967 Mustang part of this Trike if you look at it from the front, but if you take a look from the back you’ll see this is indeed a vintage Mustang. The owner transformed it into a one of a kind Mustang Trike by adding the front side of a motorcycle. It took him 2 years to complete this masterpiece that was posted on eBay with a starting price of $34,499. There were no bids and now it has been taken off the site, but I’m sure there will be someone willing to take the 1976 Mustang Trike off the builder’s hands.

Home-made Lamborghini Replica

2 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

As you’ve seen in some of our previous posts, passionate people can create everything if they put they put their minds to it, even a home-made submarine, a home-made rollercoaster and even a home-made Star-Wars Landspeeder replica. So it shouldn’t come as a surprise that someone managed to build a Lamborghini Countach replica in their own garage.

Sure it took this guy 10 years to gather the right parts and finish the model, but I’m sure he doesn’t regret one second of that time. It is 100% hand-built out of aluminum over a wooden buck, with an aluminum interior with leather dashes and Momo sport seats. It has the exact size of an original Lamborghini Countach, as  the builder used a real one for measurement.

Meet Eak the Geek

1 CommentStumble it Icon digg it Icon

From the people who brought you The Zombie Boy, Bizarre Magazine, comes Eak the Geek

I’m sure you look at thi guy and say to yourself: This guy belongs in a circus!” And he actually was a part of the Coney Island Circus Slideshow, in New York, where he was known as Eak the Geek, The Pain-Proof Man or The Man Who Painted His Face Like Outer Space. His acts included walking on broken glass, or asking people to walk over him as he was sandwitched between two beds of nails.

But that’s all behind 45-year-old Eduardo Arrocha, who is now a stundent at a presitgious law school in Michigan and trying to make something of his life. And although it’s hard for him to fit in looking as he does, his father is a big-shot in corporate law, so he probably has the genes to pull-ut off.

Eak the Geek says law school is the hardest thing he has ever undertaken, making acting in a freakshow seem like a piece of cake.He’s now telling people he left a freakshow for another.

Swimming with Tigers

2 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

At the Institute of Greatly Endangered and Rare Species in South Carolina anyone can witness how beautiful tiger handlers swim in a big pool together with the big cats. During their studies here, animal experts learned that tigers and human develop a stronger relationship in the water and that the cats are easier to handle, since they don’t stand on their back legs.

Unlike other cats, tigers are great swimmers and they enjoy spending as much time as possible in the water. However, because they slowly grow into dangerous killing machines, the handlers only swim with them until they turn one year old. Dr. Bhagavan Antle says he has got nto the water with full-grown 15-year-old tigers and ligers (cross between a lion and a tiger), but he can’t put his staff in the same kind of danger.

The Ring of Brodgar

Comments OffStumble it Icon digg it Icon

A place just as mysterious as the much more popular Stonehenge, The Ring of Brodgar is located in the outskirts of Orkney, Scotland. One of the many rock circles across Britain, The Ring of Brodgar is the third largest of them all, with 27 stone monoliths ranging from 2.1 to a maximum of 4.1 meters in height.

It was one of the first ceremonial places in the British Isles and it was first recorded in the 16 century, in one of Jo Ben‘s writings. The exact date of the site is unknown and there hasn’t been any digging inside the stone circle to determine its age, but it is believed it dates back to 2500 BC.

There were originally 60 stones in the Ring of Brodgar but only 27 still stand tall today. the last research was conducted here back in the 70s.

Radical Hummer Tuning

2 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

Sure many might not consider this real tuning but according to me this is the most radical tuning I’ve ever seen, better than the super audio system even. The man who did this really wanted to go all out to stand out and as you can see in the photos he was successful. Anyone can get some “bling-bling” rims, a low spoiler and stuff like that, but wooden wagon-wheels? Genius, simply genius.

Gobekli Tepe – The Turkish Stonehenge

6 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

The title isn’t actually doing Gobekli Tepe justice since the Turkish archaeological site is 7,000 years older than Stonehenge.

Located 35 miles north of Turkey‘s border with Syria, Gobekli Tepe consists of 20 T-shaped stone towers, carved with drawings of snakes, scorpions, lions, boars, foxes and other animals. The amazing thing about them is they date back to 9,500 BC, 5,500 years before the first cities of Mesopotamia and 7,000 years before the circle of Stonehenge. Scientists say that back then humans hadn’t even discovered pottery or domesticated wheat. They lived in villages, had no agriculture and only relied on hunting to survive.

Gobekli Tepe changes everything archaeologists discovered so far and it is considered the most important archaeological find in recent history. Klaus Schmidt, the man who first discovered Gobekli Tepe says the carvings might be the first human representation of gods.

World’s Most Flexible Secretary

2 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

I wouldn’t mind having her take all my calls, handle my mail and…Well, that last one doesn’t exactly fit the typical secretary job description. Must be nice being able to hold two jobs, one as a secretary and one as a contortionist, it’s easier to pay the bills.

Or she could be a secretary for a firm that handle a lot of male clients, she’s the perfect bait.

I wonder if she knows Rubber Boy, they could really hit it off.

The Asphalt Lake of Trinidad

Comments OffStumble it Icon digg it Icon

It may look as uninteresting as an empty parking-lot but it is much more than that…it’s a natural asphalt lake.

The Pitch Lake, as it is frequently called is a “lake” covering about 40ha with a reported depth of about 75 meters. Instead of  water, the Pitch Lake is filled with…pitch. Although it hasn’t been carefully studied, scientists say it lies at the intersection of two faults, which allows oil to be pushed up. Its lighter elements simply evaporate in the atmosphere and leave only the asphalt.

It was discovered back in 1595 by Sir Watler Raleigh and it has fascinated the scientific world ever since. It attracts about 20,000 tourists every year but some simply find it too boring. Asphalt from The Pitch Lake is mined for asphalt that is then exported all-over the world as high-quality road-construction material.
