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.
Held every year in the village of Sabucedo, Spain “La 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!
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.
Although this is definitely one of the most original things I’ve seen lately, I don’t think I’ll be having a drink there.
The Ukrainian town of Truskavets, famous for its mineral springs, has just added another major attraction on its menu for tourists. A giant coffin, 20 meters long, six meters wide and 6 meters tall has been built by a group of undertakers and will serve as a bar. Named Eternity by its founders, the coffin bar will serve “Nine Days” and “Forty Days” salads to its customers on normal size coffins that will serve as tables. As you can see in the photos, the bar uses funeral flower arrangements and real coffins as decorations and according to one of the undertakers, the waitresses will be dressed to match the theme.
And I mean that literally, just take a look at these images and you’ll see what I’m talking about.
We’ve posted many photos of unusual piercings on Oddity Central, but I think these are the most painful of them all. Just imagine somebody pushing some pieces of metal under your skin until they fit into place. Sure being unique isn’t easy, but this is too much…at least for me.
Sure we all know it means abstinence from things like sex or alcohol, but Indians take it to a whole other level.
Indians that practice asceticism do all sort of strange things, never bathing or washing their hair and bears to vowing not to use one or more of their limbs for a determined period. Some of them are against violence of any kind, they always carry a broom to sweep away the insects that come in their path and some even wear a piece of cloth over their mouths so they don’t hurt airborne germs and small insects.
They always meditate in difficult positions and endure harsh weather just to prove that their bodies are unimportant and they only focus upon the soul.
And when I say sting I mean just that.
I’ve seen many bottles of liquor with all kind of fruits in them, from small prunes to fully grown pears or apples but snakes and scorpions, this is definitely a first. You may have other tastes but to me these drinks look as bad as they must taste and you could pay me, I still wouldn’t try a sip of this stuff. Yuck!!!
I bet you feel like you’re having a drink in a bar built by the Alien.
And in a way, you kind of are, because this odd-looking establishment was designed by Hans Rudi Giger (HR Giger), who worked as a designer on the Alien movies, receiving multiple awards, including an OSCAR for best special effects.
I must say Giger did great work on this museum-bar, you must feel like you’re somewhere in the Alien universe or inside the skeleton of a monster. In any case it’s very original and refreshing, I for one love it!
I bet that didn’t hurt a bit…
Well let’s look at the bright side, at least no one is going to be able to grab it and steal it away, right. But seriously now, I don’t even want to imagine the kind of pain this dude suffered just to have his neck look like somebody just put in 20 Frankenstein-style bolts. If this is the price of being unique, I’ll take ordinary any day.
Now this guys must have balls the size of watermelons!
Famous Austrian climber and photographer,Heinz Zak threw an incredible highline performance on May 3rd, walking on a string for a full 30 meters, between two giant sandstone towers, in the Czech Republic, the Starosta and Starostova (Mayor and Lady Mayor). Just a few days before this stunt, Zak had an impressive highline performance between two stone towers in Germany. This guy is amazing!
Painful but efficient.
I have to say these Chinese have a rich imagination, the needle technique to force soldiers keep their chin up is taken out of some kind of fairytale and the cross stuck to their backs…must be really uncomfortable at first but I bet it pays of in the end. Sure some may comment on the morality of these methods but they only think about the goal, not the means. Plus they have the Olympics to think about, it seams they cannot afford any imperfections.
Still I’m glad I’m glad to be living in democracy!
For all you gamers out there I’m not talking about Snake from the Metal Gear Solid series.
This is Manoharan, a 27 year-old guy that performs one of the most growse-yet-cool stunts I’ve ever seen. He gets thin snakes through his nostrils and pulls them out through his mouth. Snake Manu, as he likes to be called, has already claimed a place in the Guinness Book of Records for another “most worms eaten in 30 seconds”, managing to gobble down 200 live earthworms, each measuring more than 10 cm.
Snake Manu says he started by entertaining his colleagues in school by inserting pieces of chalk through his nose and pulling them out through the nose and when he was 18 he started experimenting with snakes, his first try was with a half-dead water snake.
He says his favorite snakes are the baby cobras, because they are lightning fast and extremely poisonous. he has also used common kraits, sand boas and rat snakes.
He has also started to eat the snakes he inserts through his nose since an incident when a snake go stuck in his trachea and he had to choose between being bit by it or biting it. He chose the latter ( smart choice).
Apparently there are those who think the Fuhrer was a hero.
Some of these people live in the Ukraine, where an Adolf Hitler action-figure has gone on sale. The $200 doll is compared to Barbie by sales-women in Kiev and, just like the famous blond, it comes complete with accessories and several changes of clothes. Although any form of Nazism or fascism is prohibited in the Ukraine, the dolls are already on sale and will be mas-produced starting this summer. This is a result of growing extreme right political sentiment and increasing xenophobia and racism.
It looks like some Ukrainians, especially the young ones, have forgotten that Hitler killed 3 million of them during WWII, including 1.5 million Jews. He wanted to turn the country into slave populated buffer zone with Russia, now they think he was a hero…that’s sad.
The doll comes with a spare head that gives Hitler a kinder face…because he was such a kind person?!?
Well this guy has a pair of undershorts tattooed on his body so technically he isn’t naked.
If you’re ever in Barcelona, you might get “lucky” and run into “the old naked guy“. No one knows his name but everybody knows him, he’s kind of a local mascot, walking around in the nude with his huge penis hanging down halfway to his knees. Tourists either avoid him or just stop and stare at him, but he doesn’t seem to mind. The police have tried to reason with him and he has even been institutionalized a few times but he always came back.
There isn’t much more I can say about this naked man of Barcelona so I’ll just let the pics speak for themselves.
That’s one big barrel but the saying applies perfectly.
And I don’t mean it in a figurative sense, that dumb-ass is literally shooting tuna-fish with a kind of shotgun. Now I’m not in the fishing business, but I’m pretty sure that’s not the standard way of putting fish to sleep. And by the looks of that last photo, these guys are doing all this for business AND PLEASURE. Some people never cease to amaze me with their cruelty, some shoot fish in a barrel, others smash helpless baby seals’ skulls in, where does it all end?
I hope someone who can actually do something about it sees this atrocity.
