Coolest tree-houses ever built

Comments OffStumble it Icon digg it Icon

As a kid I’m sure you’ve all shared my dream of having a small tree-house all to myself. Unfortunately I never got mine but as I look at this dream I can’t help but admire their craftsmanship, I wish I had one of these tree-houses as a grown-up, they’re simply amazing. I wonder if they’re for sale.

World’s ugliest airplanes

2 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

I can’t say I’m a fan of flying, to be honest I’m terrified of airplanes but if I simply have to get on an airplane, I’d prefer it to be a decent-looking one. And that definitely excludes anyone of these odd-looking flying machines. Sure some of them are designed this way to facilitate merchandise transport, but this does not make them any prettier.

You too can be Ironman

36 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

All you have to do is convince the creator of this suit sell it to you. That’s no easy feat though since he’s a die-hard fan of Marvel‘s character and he only created it as a tribute to the comic hero.

This is definitely the best looking home-made superhero suit I’ve ever seen, it’s made out of fiberglass and flexible plastic. The suit gloves are made out of rubber foam. The Ironman mask comes with see-through lenses that allow the wearer to see clearly but don’t reveal his eyes. The costume is also hand-painted in the classic colors.

The Ironman armor would be perfect for a person 6.2 feet tall, 220 lbs. in weight and with a 35inch waistline.

I have to hand it to the creator of the suit, even Ironman himself would be impressed.

The Coffin-mobile

Comments OffStumble it Icon digg it Icon

I guess you could say this is a fast way to an early grave. I don’t know who came up with this crazy idea but that’s one vehicle I wouldn’t like to take for a test drive, call me crazy but a coffin on wheels isn’t my idea of a “sick” ride. This “genius” could have at least picked a nicer coffin for his coffin-mobile, it wouldn’t have made it more creepy but he would have scored more points for class.

Fighting hippo

3 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

Up until a few weeks ago I was under the impression that hippos were peaceful animals that wouldn’t hurt a fly. I don’t know why, they just always looked like peaceful creatures to me. But after seeing some hippos attacking a crocodile and now this angry guy picking a fight with this antelope, I’ve reached the conclusion that hippos are not quiet, calm animals at all.

Diggerland – Heaven for Construction fans

2 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

Diggerland is an unusual fun-park where children and adults alike can experience life on a construction site.

I can’t say I’ve ever been a big fan of construction machinery but if you or your kids love it head on to one of the four Diggerland parks in England and enjoy a full day as a construction worker. You’ll get the chance to drive trucks, mini diggers and giant diggers under the strict supervision of trained professionals, take pictures and get a good meal at the Dig inn.

I’m sure some kids might love this stuff but me, well I’ve never dreamed of a career in constructions so I guess I won’t be visiting Diggerland anytime soon. For more details on the unusual Diggerland theme-park head over to their official site.

Now this is a real eco-toilet

2 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

You probably thought eco-toilets are those plastic boxes set in public spaces where you just go in and handle your business, huh? Well, no, you were wrong and these photos prove it. As you can see, apart from the toilet bowl, everything is natural. And before you say “this is just stupid” you might like to know people build bars in trees too and place restaurants on them. Incredible things trees, wouldn’t you say?

Women that could kick your ass

17 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

I’m starting to wonder if women really are the weaker sex? I mean look at these women, they’re freaking huge and that’s not even the worst part…apparently they think they’re hot, posing like that. I beat a gorilla would be interested but as far as men are concerned, you have to have some problems up on the top floor or be really wasted to find that attractive. If you’re in one of these categories you might want to feast your opticles on this, premium stuff.

Ship in the Middle of Hong Kong

3 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

Last time I saw a cruise ship in a city was in that crappy sequel to Speed (starring Keanu Reeves and Sandra Bullock), what was it called again…oh yeah, Speed 2. But this particular ship didn’t actually sail to the middle of Hong Kong, it was built there. Whampoa ship is one of the main tourist attraction Hong Kong has to offer and one of the most unusual commercial centers in the world. It has the size of an actual cruise ship and inside you can find many restaurants, shops and even a hotel. To see how much Whampoa really is, just look it up on Google Maps, or better yet take a trip to Hong Kong.

The Ultimate Battle

Comments OffStumble it Icon digg it Icon

Two of the greatest predators on the face of the Earth go at it in an ultimate battle. The crocodile, practically invincible when in water becomes a target for a hungry leopard. I have to say the cat’s got guts, or it’s so hungry it’s desperate. In any case, the croc’s formidable bite and strength is no match for the swift feline. After a terrible struggle the leopard comes out victorious, my question is how is he going to eat its valuable prey…not even bullets can penetrate that hide and he ain’t got thumbs to turn that big lizard on it’s back. Oh well I’m sure he found a way, they’re pretty resourceful you know…

Shearing of the Beasts

16 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

Held every year in the village of Sabucedo, SpainLa Rapa Das Bestas“, as the Spanish call it, is a 400-year-old festival where horses that are caught in the hills are rounded up and guided into an arena of sorts called the Corral of Sabucedo, where they are sheared and branded.

This year’s festival was held on July 5 and, as you can see, it’s very very brutal. I am old for the preservation of old traditions and customs but I truly believe this “festival” should be banned. I mean just look at what they are doing to the poor animals, they jump on them, grab them by whatever they can and try to immobilize them to cut their tales and tag them. This is medieval stuff!

Modern-day Noah’s Arc

4 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

While religious experts search for proof Noah’s Arc really existed, modern artists build replicas of the ship from The Book of Genesis.

Johan Huibers a Dutch creationist from Schagen, Netherlands spent a lot of time and approximately $1.2 million to build a modern-day Noah’s Ark that’s 1/5 of the one described in The Bible. He started thinking about this project back in 1992 when the idea that his home country could become flooded due to global warming. Even when the idea became less popular he still continued to think about it and realized it was a great way to bring his fellow countrymen closer to religion.

So he began work on his 70 meters-long, 9,5 meters-wide and 13 meters-high arc in 2005 with money gathered from bank loans and now it’s ready to sail and calibrated to narrowly pass under every bridge in the interior waters of Netherlands. Although he couldn’t use the same materials described in The Book of Genesis, this modern Noah’s Arc is a nice replica and it even has some animal models to make it look more real.

Do deers live in the ocean?

8 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

You might think that if you come across a deer while going fishing in the ocean right? Well I guess that’s what these boys thought to themselves when they saw this dow while they were fishing quite a long way from shore in Chesapeake Bay. The fish weren’t biting that day so they had time to look around and spot something strange in the water. This deer was swimming for its life and it looked like it had been doing that for some time. When it saw the boat it started to swim towards it but when it saw the guys it kept its distance. One of them had some cowboy experience and using a lasso reeled it in the boat. It was so tired that it couldn’t even stay on its feet, plus it was scared as hell.

When they reached shore they tried to set it loose but it still couldn’t move so they left it there, but after a while she recovered her strength and moved on.

Coolest coolers ever

4 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

Oh yeah, we all have this problem…all who can’t afford an expensive cooling system, that is. Anyway I have to admit I also used one of these ventilators to cool down my rig, beats spending large sums of cash on water cooling although it does look primitive. Well here are some photos of ventilators in cooling action, as a tribute to them.
