Home-Made Motorcycle

1 CommentStumble it Icon digg it Icon

Are you sad because you can’t afford to buy that Harley-Davidson chopper you’ve always dreamed of? That’s ok, the economic crysis hit us all hard, but don’t worry you can build a fine chopper yourself, like this guy did.

This Chinese dude proves to us all that if you want something really bad you can achieve it. He wanted a motorcycle, but he didn’t have the cash for a new one, so he built it from junk. It may not be the best-looking chopper you’ve ever seen, but it works, and that’s all that matters to this guy.

So if you can’t buy a bike, build it. It’s not easy but  people built greater things, like a home-made submarine, a back-yard rollercoaster and even an Ironman costum.

Trailer Trash Dolls

1 CommentStumble it Icon digg it Icon

How about a redneck or trailer-trash doll for your kids? No? It’s your loss!

I knew the doll-making industry was going downhill ever since that Gay Bob – The World’s First Gay Doll hit toy-store shelves. Trailer trash dolls were first produced in 1998 and their first star doll came out in 2005. Her name was Trash Talkin’ Turleen and it was an instant hit. The doll comes with indispensable redneck accessories like a small pig, red cowboy boots and a sixpack. Turleen admits she’s inbred, and she’s pregnant, so we can only assume she and one of her cousins are closer than they should be.

In 2006 Jerwayne Junior was set loose on the market. He is a true redneck (obviously, dressed as such, always carrying a six-pack with him, and a cigarette in his mouth.

Interested in these redneck dolls? Just go to trailertrashdoll.com and find out more about them.

World’s Largest Chocolate Fountain

Comments Off on World’s Largest Chocolate FountainStumble it Icon digg it Icon

The chocolate fountain at the Bellagio, in Las Vegas is simply delicious.

Rising 27 feet above ground, and touching the ceiling, the chocolate funtain in Jean Philippe Patisserie displays a spectacular series of small chocolate waterfalls, filled with white, dark and milk chocolate.

Over 2,100 punds of tasty melted chocolate circulate through this wonder of engineering, at a rate of 120 quats per minute. Designed by award-winning pastry cheff Jean Philippe Maury, the chocolate fountain of the Bellagio took a year and a half in planning and design alone.

Sadly the whole fountain is enclosed by a glass wall, so no, you can’t dip your finger in it for a taste. Maury says the glass maximizes the color of the three types of flowing chocolate.

Rolex Time Sand

Comments Off on Rolex Time SandStumble it Icon digg it Icon

Who better to make time sand than one of the world’s most famous time-piece manufacturers, Rolex.

In order for an hourglass to  acurately measure time, its sand would have to be of uniform size and texture. Michael Marcovici used this kind of sand in one of his latest artworks. Famous for stacking 10 million $100 bills on 12 pallets, to offer a view at $1,000,000,000, Marcovici now stacked 972 Rolex Time Sand bags, on 18 pallets. Each bag weighed 30 kg and it would last for 30 days, flowing through an ordinary hourglass.

All the sand bags, weighing over 29,000 kg, represent a generous estimation of an average lifetime, 81 years. The second photo shows the amount of life already consumed by the artist, 39 years.

Grafitti-Covered Kelburn Castle

1 CommentStumble it Icon digg it Icon

One of the oldest castles in Scotland, Kelburn is now also one of the most modern.

Kelburn castle was built in the 13th century, remodelled in the 16th century, and opened to the public, as a country park, in 1977. It’s one of many beautiful castles in Britain, but Kelburn stands out through its bizarre, grafitti-covered exterior. In 2007, after experts told him the outer facing would have to be replaced in order to prevent further damage to the castle walls, the Earl of Scotland invited grafitti artists to prove their skills on the walls.

The grafitti-painted walls of Kelburn Castle will be reconditioned in 2009 at the earliest, so you still have time to admire one of the most unusual-looking medieval castles in the world.

How Russia Treats Greenpeace

3 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

Well Greenpeace is definitely not the most loved organization in Russia.

I don’t know exactly what that adorable human trash can told those guys from the “OMOH“(Russian Police), but one thing is for sure, they didn’t like it. So they decided to throw the poor protester in their van and take him to the gulag (or is it police station these days?), the way police handles peaceful protesters in any other democratic country.

So if you’re a member of Greenpeace and want to raise awareness on pollution and other environment issues, don’t go to Russia. Unless of course you’re going dressed as a Playboy bunny, they love those.

How To Make A Rainbow Cake

2 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

Doesn’t look like a very natural cake, I know, but what’s a few chemicals here and there.

i just thought I’d post the images of the whole “making a rainbow cake” process, but if you’re interested in getting the recipe and other pointers on baking one of these babies, visit Omnomicon.

Not sure if I could ever taste anything these colorful, even though it is a light cake, but I’d definitely like to wake up and take a look at it every morning. I’m sure it would brighten up my whole day.

Inside a Professional Camera

1 CommentStumble it Icon digg it Icon

Ever wondered what a professional camera looks like on the inside?

You know how merchants slice watermelons at the market, so you can see they are ripe? I think somebody used the same sales strategy on this professional camera. How else would you explain this oddity, a camera sliced in half. I can think of just one other possibility that makes everything possible, art. The weirder the exhibit, the more successful it is.

If you happen to know why someone would ruin a great camera like that, shre your knowledge with the rest of us.

Modern Amazons in the Ukraine

Comments Off on Modern Amazons in the UkraineStumble it Icon digg it Icon

Amazons don’t just live through legends and myths, they live in the real world.

French explorer Guillaume Herbaut stumbled upon a group of young amazons deep in the Ukrainean forest. They dress in traditional outfits of their people, study martial arts and live together, away from men, just like the ancient female warriors used to do.

The idol of these modern amazons is the Ukrainean prime-minister Iulia Timoshenko.

Just what we guys needed, another group of women who could kick our asses.

Some people love anime heroes that much.

We all know how popular anime are worldwide, but especially in the coutry that invented them, Japan. Known as Itasha, the art of covering the body of a car with fictional anime characters, is very popular in the Land of the Rising Sun.

Gatherings to show off the coolest Itasha cars are held regularly, and the latest was organized in Nagara town, just north of Tokyo. Called “Winter 2009 Itasha Collection“, it was held on January 25 and brought together over 150 cool cars. A 20 million-yen Itasha car was reportedly also presented there.

Gold-plated Mercedes

1 CommentStumble it Icon digg it Icon

It appears gold-plating your car is the latest fashion in rich Arab countries.

Take this gorgeous Mercedes AMG, one of the most beautiful cars on the market today. Its owner wanted to take his “common” car and turn it into so mething that would really turn heads. So what do you do when you have too much money to count, and want to make something shiny shine even more? You gold-plate it of course.

So if you are ever in a country like, let’s say Dubai, and see a golden car drive by, don’t make a big deal out of it, it’s just their thing.

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.
