Apache Helicopter Made Out of Plywood

It’s amazing what some people can do with something as plain as plywood.

This amazing Apache Helicopter model was created by Jasper Knight,  an artist from Sidney, Australia, who uses materials such as plywood, Perspex, cardboard and old traffic signs for his art. Knight’s plywood creation measures six meters in length, almost half the size of a real Apache Assault Helicopter.

Man Builds Life-Size Bumblebee Transformer

It may not be as cool-looking as the life-size Gundam robot in Tokyo, but, for a home-made statue, this real-life Bumblebee Transformer is pretty awesome.

A big Transformers fan from Lemoore, California, Tom Rhoads decided to build a Bumblebee replica right in his front yard. He started working on the 18-foot-tall statue right after his son was born. Seeing these are financially-troubled times, Tom created the life-size Transformer out of an old Volkswagen Beetle, instead of a brand new Camaro, like in the movie.

Rhoads and a friend worked on this Bumblebee statue for an entire year, then lifted it into position using a crane and reinforced its legs so it wouldn’t fall down.

La Tomatina – Biggest Food Fight in Colombia

What started as La Tomatina of Bunol, Spain, is now also a popular celebration in Sutamarchan, Colombia and even Dongguan, China.

On June 14, locals of Sutamarchan and many tourists gathered on an old football field to stage Colombia’s biggest food fight of the year. Around 15 tons of tomatoes were sacrificed in La Tomatina this year. The food fight, inspired by the much more famous Tomatina of Bunol, is part of a three day tomato celebration. A tomato-eating contest and a competition for the largest tomato, are also part of the celebration.

Star-Wars Chipmunks

What do chipmunks and Star-Wars have in common? I have no idea, but Canadian illustrator Chris McVeigh though it would be funny to mix them together.

Using a lot of patience and a significant amount of almonds, McVeigh managed to convince these cute, furry rodents to pose with action-figures from the popular sci-fi series Star-Wars. It all started when he befriended a chipmunk trapped in his father’s garden shed. He got quite close to it after a while and realized he could get them to do practically anything.

Great photos by Chris McVeigh and amazing acting by the chipmunks.

This way girls can take their teddys anywhere and look cool at the same time. And I’m not talking little girls, after all you’re never too old for teddy-bears, right?

Stainless-Steel Baby Accessories

Whether you want some really unique baby accessories for you toddler, or just want to buy him some stuff that will probably last forever, these things are perfect. Of course you’ll also probably have to buy your baby some armor to keep him from getting some serious cuts, but nothing is perfect in this world, right.

I’m sure you’ve realized by now that these stainless steel accessories are nothing more than art exhibits and they couldn’t be used in real life.

Britney’s British Twin

Some people wish they were Britney Spears for just one day, but Lorna Bliss has spent almost ten years being Britney Spears and she says it’s not all that pretty.

Lorna started out as a Britney impersonator back in 2000 when some of her friends noticed the resemblance. She borrowed some money to dye her hair and buy outfits and started touring nightclubs for 100 pounds a night. After she got her degree she became a full time Britney Spears, trying to copy every detail in the pop idol’s life.

She didn’t marry a Kevin Federline lookalike or have two kids, but she did put on the extra weight, shaved her head and copied Britney’s attitude during her breakdown. She would snap at journalists and even chase them away with an umbrella, just like the pop-star.

Now Lorna is happy Britney Spears is back on the horse and she doesn’t have to look crazy and depressed all the time. She does however have to spend around 15,000 British pounds every month, just to maintain her looks.

There’s one question that puzzles me though…Did she walk around without underwear just like Britney?

XR3 – The Plug-in Hybrid Trike

I don’t know if I like the XR3 or not, Right now all I know is it looks…different.

Robert Q. Riley has been working on the XR3 Trike for a long time now, but it looks like his three-wheeled car is finally ready to go into production. Designed to be as light as possible, the XR3 hybrid allows 200 mpg and 125 mpg when running on its 23 hp diesel engine.

The plans available on Ripley’s website allow car-enthusiasts to implement some of his ingenious designs on their own rides and help them reduce mobility energy. You can find out more about the XR3 plug-in hybrid here.
