Ryugyong – World’s Largest Deserted Hotel

5 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

Who knew North Korea had the second largest hotel in the world? Too bad it’s deserted.

Ryugyong Hotel was one of Kim Jong Il‘s plans of really putting North Korea on the World Map. He thought the best way to do that would be to build the world’s largest structure. The Koreans started buillding Ryugyong in 1987 but ceased construction in 1992 due to serious financial difficulties. The country never recovered from its financial crisis so the work on Ryugyong never picked up, until 2008 when the government decided to resume work on their giant super-structure.

With North Korea‘s tourism at an absolute low, Ryugyong Hotel will probably be nothing more than a really large building, although Kim Jong Il has tried to convince the world that his huge hotel is a success by faking images and spreading them in the media.

The Floating Guitar

And I don’t mean just any guitar

This is an exact replica of Australian singer Josh Pike‘s favorite guitar. He had it built for his next music video, entitled “Make You Happy”. Josh was never very popular on an international level, but now that he has a guitar boat, he’s definitely going places.

For those of you who were wondering, no, the guitar boat is not playable, but then again you would need giant hands to try it and find out, so I guess it remains a mistery.

Unusual Display of Motherhood

7 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

There have been many cases in which animals took in cubs that didn’t belong to them, or even their species, like this adorable little pig. But I’ve never seen a monkey taking so well to a couple of tiger cubs before.

After Hurricane Hannah ravaged the state of South Carolina, the tigers of one of the zoos started acting very aggressive and were considered a danger to their young. So these two white tiger cubs were separated from their mother and adopted by a 2-year-old chimpanzee. As you can see from the photos he’s really taking parenting seriously. I wonderhow their relationship will evolve…

The Leaf Chapel

Comments OffStumble it Icon digg it Icon

Standard churches don’t usually look like this, but then again, Leaf Chapel isn’t an ordinary church. Designed by Klein-Dytham Architecture, at the special request of a Japanese hotel-owner, the Leaf Chapel is located inside a very popular resort in the Japanese Alps.

Its unusual design was cleverly thought through, because this chapel is as as much a business as it is a sacred place. People of all faiths come here to get married so the Leaf Chapel had to have an ecumenical design, with no identifying iconographies.

 Risonare mountain resort has become even more popular after the addition of the 550-square foot Leaf Chapel.

The Prayer Booth

14 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

Just what every passionate Christian ever wanted.

The Prayer Booth could be just as big as the phone booth was before cell-phones hit the market. Think about it, there’s hardly a time when any Christian doesn’t feel like asking God for a favor, or thanking him for something, but we can’t just drop to our knees in the middle of the street, put our hands together and start talking to the Man upstairs. The Prayer Booth is the perfect solution to the problem, put down your bags, enter the booth, follow the clever instructions and you’re done.

Still, you probably won’t see a Prayer Booth in your neighborhood anytime soon.

The Heart-Attack Restaurant

Taste worth dying for!

That’s the motto of Heart-Attack Grill, a restaurant that prides itself on offering its customers probably the fattest, most dangerous food they’ll ever eat. But, like we all know, the greasiest food is also the tastiest. Heart-Attack Grill‘s menu includes the simple, double, triple and quadruple Bypass Burgers, Flatliner Fries (deep-fried in pure lard), Jolt Cola and no-filter cigarettes.

If you want to put your life on the line to experience the heavenly taste of fat food, all you have to do is travel to Chandler, Arizona, where Heart-Attack Grill is located. In case you do get a heart-attack, there are nurses in the restaurant, the only problem is they have no medical training, they just serve the food and look very hot, but that’s beeter than nothing right?

Even Turtles Love Punk

Comments OffStumble it Icon digg it Icon

And there’s no better proof than the fellow in these photos, he has a much better punk hairdo than I’ve seen on most of the human members of the punk movement. Photographed in Mary River, near the town of Kenilvors, Australia, this blue-eyed turtle sports what looks like an outrageous Iroquois hair-style. But in reality, the green “hair” on the turtle‘s head is just green algae that grow parasitically.

I bet any punk-rocker would be proud to have this lovely turtle as a pet.

Japanese Neon Lamp Fights

153 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

You have to hand it to the Japanese, they know violence sells and they market it like no other country can.

But this has to be the dumbest sport in history, two fat guys pounding each other with neon-rods until they’re both soaked in blood? I have no idea what this sport is called or who came up with the idea, but apparently it’s very popular in the Land of the Rising Sun, despite it’s obvious stupidity. I’d rather watch some K1 or UFC any day, this is just like wrestling only with real blood.

I wonder if those lamps are mercury free…if they’re not, do the fat guys know they could die from mercury poisoning?

Ghetto Wedding

23 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

I never imagined weddings in South Central L.A. were tuxedo and nightgown only, but I didn’t think they were this “gangsta” either. I like it, it’s very original, everyone can wear a suit at a wedding but not anyone can wear a spray-painted extra-large T-shirt like that. If that’s what did it for them , then good for them, they keppin’ it real…

Masterpiece-Replicas Out of Sliced Salami

1 CommentStumble it Icon digg it Icon

Creating art out of food is not always easy, and if that food happens to be sliced salami, well, I’d say you’d have your work cut out for you. But someone managed to create replicas of masterpieces like The Mona Lisa, using only different kinds of salami and baloney, and it turned out pretty good. The guests at this wedding seem to be enjoying it too, or perhaps they’re just really, really hungry.

Food art is all about imagination, and this food-artist has a very rich one, that’s for sure.

Animal Love Caught on Camera

Comments OffStumble it Icon digg it Icon

It was a hot autumn day in Texas when Fate decided to bring them together. Two Rattle Snakes looking for love suddenly found each other and the rest is history. As you can see from the photos, these two look beautiful together and just can’t keep their scales off one another. After the traditional courtship the two Rattlers left together to look for a private spot to…get to know each other a little better. Whoever said snakes were cold blooded should bite their tongue right now.

Pimped-out trucks

If you’re a fun of “Pimp my truck!” you’re going to love these babies. Some might say these trucks look way over the top but I guess that was the whole point of the tuning, to make them stand out in any situation. I’m not a big fan of trucks but I’d sure love to ride in one of these bad boys.

Self-defense instructions for women

3 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

The Japanese have decided to release a series of woman self-defense instructional images to help them fight-off aggressors. Judging by the moves depicted I have to say I pity the fool who would dare attack a woman trained in these martial arts. that head-blow alone would bring any man to its knees, the other blows are just for fun. Beware women-aggressors, you may become the victims.

Cape Stolbchaty

1 CommentStumble it Icon digg it Icon

It seems almost impossible to believe that nature itself created the “stone organs” of Cape Stolbchaty, on Kunashir Island. But this indeed the result of volcanic activity at its finest. This natural wonder is formed out of thousands of rock columns that sometimes, under the pressure of the elements come tumbling down, breaking to pieces and forming piles that resemble firewood.

If you find the volcanic formations of Cape Stolbchaty interesting, you might want to check out The Giant’s Causeway and Garni Gorge
