Artist Jennifer Marsh, founder of the International Fiber Collaborative has just finished wrapping an abandoned gas-station in pieces of fabric from all-around the world. The whole project cost $29,000 and a part of the sum came from her own pocket.

She’s now thinking of expanding the organization into other communities, not just Syracusw, New York and her future project will involve covering an abandoned grocery-store in recycled plastic.

Held every year on the first Sunday of August, in Catoira, Spain, the Viking Festival is a fun celebration in which the locals celebrate the role played by Catoira in the defense against viking invaders.

The highlight of the Viking Festival is the disembarking of viking-dressed locals from a 11th century viking ship and the battle between the Spanish defenders that always leads to all the combatants being drenched in wine.

Largest bottle-cap collection in the world

5 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

For some reason people love to collect bottle-caps, some even use them to make bottle-cap paintings, but I’ve never seen such a large collection before.

The bottle-caps in the photos weigh over 850 kg. and as you can see take up an entire room. However the main advantage of a treasure of these proportions is that, well, nobody tries to steal it. The “lucky owner of this 380,000 bottle-cap collection must be one heavyweight beer-drinker huh?

Twins Days twin festival

1 CommentStumble it Icon digg it Icon

Every year, on the first day of August a very unusual festival takes place in Twinsburg, Ohio. Twins and multiple siblings from all-across America join in a unique celebration called Twins Days. Participants have a chance to enter fun sporting events, have a good meal and spend time with “members of their own species” as they sometimes like to refer to each-other.

Everyone can enjoy Twins Days, even regular people just as long as they pay the entrance fee.

La Tomatina – tomato fighting festival

2 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

Can you say FOOD FIGHT?

If you’re one of those people that loved starting food fights in the school cafeteria, you’re going to love La Tomatina festival. every year, on the last Wednesday of August, thousands of people gather on the streets of Bunol, Spain and throw over one hundred metric tons of tomatoes at each-other. Tradition says the tomato fight of La Tomatina is supposed to begin when someone manages to climb up a two-story high greased wooden pole and grab a piece of ham, but since that takes forever the battle starts all of a sudden.

During La Tomatina people just come at you and tear the shirt right off you, even if you’re a woman so don’t act all surprised or scared. The whole tomato battle lasts for an hour aftewhich everyone goes to Bunol River to wash up. If any stragglers are still on the streets after the fight, the locals are more than happy to hose them down.

La Tomatina helps keep the towns streets clean through the acid properties of the tomatoes.

Why people fear the Anaconda

THE PHOTOS ARE NOT FOR THE WEAK-OF-HEART!

Everyone knows the size of the Anaconda snake and we all know it’s capable of swallowing a person whole, but there was no visual proof of this. Well this is about to change as you scroll down this page, that lump in the middle of the Anaconda is not an animal, I’ll tell you this much…

Coolest tree-houses ever built

Comments Off on Coolest tree-houses ever builtStumble 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 Off on The Coffin-mobileStumble 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.
