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 Off on The Ultimate BattleStumble 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.

Don’t touch that cable!

Living in Australia presents the following risk: mistake giant snakes for computer cables. Okay so you could spot it if your really careful but it blends in pretty well. So if one of your cables feels slippery and moving, take a good look at it.

Milliau Viaduct, highest vehicle bridge in the world

2 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

You might think there’s nothing special about this bridge, and Milliau Viaduct is indeed one of the more common-looking bridges, but the mere fact that it’s slightly taller than the Eiffel Tower makes it special.

Opened to traffic in December of 2004, Milliau Viaduct holds the current record for the world’s tallest vehicular bridge in the world, standing at an amazing 343 meters in its highest point, which makes it only 38 meters shorter than the Empire State Building. The bridge is set in Milliau, France is a part of the A75-A71 autorute from Paris to Beziers and it most likely lose its position as highest bridge deck in the world, when Chenab Bridge is completed in 209, in India, so we thought we’d mention it until then.

Girl parks her car in swimming pool

Well that’s not the first I’d consider to park my red Mazda Miata ,but who are we to judge right?

Young Kim Taylor thought she had pulled the emergency brake after she parked her Mazda Miata convertible, but the car must have been thirsty, because it started to roll downhill and only stopped at the bottom of the neighbors swimming pool. The accident took place on June 30th and a team of specialists was needed to pull the car out of the pool, we couldn’t find out if it still runs, after its bath.

The Zombie Boy

81 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

Rick is not a living dead, not yet anyway, but he is trying to make himself look like a zombie and so far he’s doing a great job.

A big fan of horror movies, especially George A. Romero’s Living Dead movies, Rick has become a big fan of zombies and ultimately decided he wanted to become one. As a kid he liked The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon and he wanted to be a turtle and live in the sewers, but, with age, he became more mature and decided to become a zombie instead.

So far he has invested over 4000 Canadian dollars into over 24 hours of tattoos and piercings and  says his about halfway to realizing his dream. In the meantime he’s become somewhat of an Internet celebrity due to his unique appearance.

Check out an interview with Rick the Zombie Boy over on Bizarre, if you want to know more about him.
