UFO house for sale

3 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

Ever wanted to live in a flying saucer? Now you can!

If you have at least $100.000 that is, that’s the starting price for this odd looking UFO-shaped house. It is for sale on Ebay so look it up if you can afford it. It’s based in Chattanooga, Tennessee and it was built by the late Curtis W. King because he liked to build unusual things.

The current owner, only had it for four months and he didn’t comment on why he wanted to sell it, but it might have something to do with the interior design options, the side walls are very very short and the ceiling, as you can imagine, is very curved. I wouldn’t want to live there, even though it’s equipped with everything a normal home needs. But then again I’m not that fond of UFOs.

Flip-flops caused chemical burns

5 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

This is what a pair of cheap, Chinese flip-flops did to someone’s feet.

A young woman bought a pair of flip-flops from a Wall-mart store for $2.44 and after wearing them for a while, she sensed a tingling sensation in fer feet so she stopped wearing them. Soon her skin started turning red and, as you can see from the photos, it didn’t stop there.

She took up the mater with Wall-mart but they told her to take it up with the Chinese producer, but eventually stopped selling the product due to multiple complaints.

The Rubberboy

2 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

Daniel Browning Smith is the most famous contortionist alive and you can see why.

Better known as the Rubberboy, Smith can do some amazing things with his flexible body. Unlike other contortionists, he can bend in all directions, he can bend back so much that his head touches the seat of his pants and so much forward that he can literally kiss his own ass. He can also dislocate both his arms and legs, and can also turn his torso 180 degrees.

Because he can do all these things he is considered the most flexible man alive.

Gothic Wedding

4 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

I can’t say I’m very big on Goth culture in general, it’s all very pessimistic, at least that’s the way I see it, but there are some places where it fits right in. A wedding isn’t one of them.

But that didn’t seem to matter to these two lovebirds. The 49 year old groom and the 45 year old bride decided they wanted a funeral-style wedding, so they dressed for the occasion, arrived in coffins carried by a funeral wagon and even wore make-up to make themselves look like real live…dead people.

It’s all in the head

8 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

And I don’t mean mentally!

I wouldn’t have believed if I hadn’t seen it with my own eyes, that’s for sure! It’s not only that the bike must be heavy as hell, but what about the balance, one wrong move and he could easily snap his neck. Don’t even get me started on him climbing that bus ladder with the bike on top of his head. If this guy isn’t in the Guinness Book of Records by now…well…somebody should tell them about him.

Dancing with crocs

2 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

I didn’t know crocodiles were easy to train, this guy proves that they are.

Still, putting your head inside that beast’s head like that?!? And he looks like he doesn’t have a care in the world, like nothing could go wrong, it’s a little annoying. Buddy that thing has one of the strongest bites on the planet, if he snaps, that’s it, game over! And with a face like that, I wonder how that crock can help himself…

Although I doubt he’ll have a head on his shoulders for a long time, if he keeps this up, the guy has balls the size of watermelons!

Limbo-skating champion

2 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

I’ve always found skating quite difficult, but skating under cars…what more can I say?

Aniket Chindak is the unofficial world champion at skating under cars, he was able to skate under 57 cars in only 45 seconds, and now he’s getting ready to shatter his own record. “I first saw a girl skate under a car on TV two years ago and decided to learn how to do it myself. It took three months before I could get my body in the right position. Since then I have skated under lots of cars and have never hurt myself.” That’s pretty impressive considering the boy has been skating ever since he was 18 months old.

The boy has now started training for skating under 100 cars in order to set a record that no one can beat for a long time. Good luck wit that!

Overgrown vegies

Here’s a collection of abnormally large vegetables, a real treat if you’re into them, but for a hardcore carnivore like myself those things are freakin’ scary! Well I guess it would be nice to have them grow like this on a regular basis, they’d help solve the world hunger issue.

The real Catman

11 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

And I’m not talking about the comic-book hero, but about the real cat-man…or Stalking Cat as he likes to be addressed to.

David Avner, a native American, part Huron, part Lakota has spent more than $200.000 on plastic surgery to make himself look as a tiger, his totem animal. He even had all of his teeth removed and replaced them with feline-like ones, he has tattooed his face with stripes, he modified his upper lip and inserted stainless steel implants to insert whiskers in, he had his ears surgically pointed and inserted silicone in different areas of his face.

Catman has become quite famous after appearing on several TV shows, including Ripley’s Believe it or Not and Larry King Live.

The power of Chinese massage oil

24 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

Lucky for me, I’m not very big on Chinese food, or any other spicy cuisine for that matter, I don’t know how my throat could withstand the power of that acid-like sauce. Frankly I can’t even conceive anybody would use that on their food, that stuff makes Mexican chilly look like baby food.

if you’ve ever tried anything like this please leave your thoughts, I’m really curious if Chinese hot sauce is as hot as it looks.

UPDATE: According to one of our readers the red substance is actually some kind of oil and it is not eatable. Sorry for the mix-up, my Chinese is not very good.

Starving in Egypt

4 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

Jonathan McCullum was a perfectly healthy 17 years old boy, weighing at 155 pounds. That all changed went he signed for an exchange student program in Egypt. His hosts were Coptic Christians, who fast an unmatched 200 days a year and the boy says he was denied sufficient food, all four months that he spent there.

When he returned to the states, Jonathan was unrecognizable, weighing a mere 97 pounds and struggling to carry his own baggage and climb up stairs. He had to be hospitalized for two weeks because he risked having a heart attack.

Despite the whole ordeal, the boy doesn’t regret his experience and sees it as a mere clash of cultures, he plans on going to Zimbabwe this summer as part of a volunteer program. Take some food with you this time buddy!

The bride of Wildenstein

17 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

Meet Jocelyn Wildenstein, also known as the The Lion Queen, The Cat Woman or The Bride of Wildenstein. She was born in 1940 and in a crazy attempt to stay young forever she is said to have spent around $4.000.000 on plastic surgery. Sadly that only brought her the title of world’s scariest celebrity, from a plastic surgery website, in 2004.

It’s pretty sad when you think about it, if I were her, I’d rather look like a nice old lady rather than as a doll-faced monster. Anyway her boyfriend seems to like her…I’m sure it has nothing to do with the fact that she’s rich!

Women breastfeeding animals

63 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

I have no problems looking at pictures depicting animal moms breastfeeding and literally taking in babies of different species, I even find them very sweet. But for some reason, looking at these photos of women breastfeeding various animals makes me very nauseous, it’s just not natural, no matter what continent your from.

Tension ceiling handling a flood

5 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

Until these images caught my eye a few days ago, I didn’t even know what a tension ceiling did exactly. Of course I was never really interested in finding out, but now that I did, I’m actually thinking of getting one. Floods can be really nasty, and all that work to repair a flooded ceiling can be really exhausting so why bother, I’d rather have a balloon as a ceiling doing all the work. Take a look, it really works!

Modern-day werewolves

1 CommentStumble it Icon digg it Icon

I keep looking at these photos and try to imagine what kind of lives these people have…Because as hard as it is for us to admit, humans are a a very cruel species and many of them are simply incapable of compassion. Imagine what it’s like to go out for a simple walk and have people looking at you, some just because they’re curious, others showing disgust and others just making fun…And all this because you were unlucky enough to suffer from a rare genetic disease called hypertrichosis.

Statistics say hypertrichosis, or the werewolf syndrome, is so rare that it occurs for 1 out of 10 billion people, However there are 19 people alive diagnosed with this disease, out of 6.5 billion people, so it’s more like 1 in 340 million.
