Las Vegas Meets Snow

The world is getting weirder and weirder each year. After hail fell in Africa a few months ago, now it snowed in Las Vegas for the first time ever. We’re talking about the Nevada Desert here, snow isn’t supposed to fall in the desert. But, as you can see from the photos the impossible just became possible. I wonder what’s next, the ice cap will start to melt? Oh…wait…

Fly-by Beach

Juliana Airport, in the Antilles, has one of the shortest airstrips in the world and, in order to land, planes have to descend down to 10-20 meters above the heads of relaxing tourists on Maho beach. The landing strip is just over 2,000 meters-long, barely enough for large jets to complete their landings.

At the moment the only company flying weekly to Juliana Airport is Corsairfly. Iknow it looks pretty scary and dangerous but so far no incidents have been reported. Maybe just some bleeding ears every once in a while from the sound of the engines.

The Floating Chrismas Tree of Rio de Janeiro

A floating Christmas Tree has been set up in Rio de Janeiro every Christmas for the last 12 years. This year the Brazilian city held the record for the highest floating Christmas Tree, over 85 meters long and 530 tons heavy. It was built on a metal structure, filled with bright lights and fireworks and set to float on Lake Lagoa. On Christmas people could witness an impressive display of fireworks from the tree.

Office Creativity

We all know how boring office life can be. And don’t give me that “not my life, I work my ass-off every day”, I watch The Office, ok? Anyway boredom brings out the creativity in people, especially when they’re at work, and they come-up with the most ingenious things. Check out this cool but “lethal” weapon for example:

How to Make an Alcoholic Ice-cream

As you probably know alcohol doesn’t normally freeze, but as it turns out not even strong drinks like vodka, brandy and whisky can’t whitstand extreme cold. So if you want to enjoy a nice cold, alcoholic ice-cream, take a boutle of booze at -55 degrees Celsius and wait…preferably inside.

The Netti Pot Nasal Solution

Have you ever tried pouring salt water into your nose? No, not for fun, but to cure a runny nose or treat sinusitis. Most people have never heard about Netti Pot, but this is an ancient and simple Ayurvedic remedy used especially by Yoga practitioners.

The Netti Pot method basically consists of pouring slightly salted water into one of your nostrils and allowing it to clean the sinuses until it comes out your other nostril. It might seem a little awcward at first, but after a while you’ll get used to it.

Check out the video at the bottom to see how Netti Pot works.

Ain’t Indifference a Bitch?

I’ve seen people (drunks) pass-out in public places before, on benches, in parks, on the sidewalks, but never on the street, where they could get run-over by passing cars. I don’t know if this girl is drunk or sick, but the fact that no one even bothers to roll her over to the sidewalk is just disgusting. Oh yeah, the guy on the bike stops and covers her up with an umbrella…wtf is that about, he couldn’t check if she was ok but he cared that she was getting wet? And she was on the damn street, she was gonna get wet anyway

This must happen very often in China, otherwise I can’t explain why they just ignore the poor girl like that.

The PayDay Toilet-Seat

When I first saw this original toilet I said to myself “this might just be the closest I ever get to shitting money”. The coins and dollar bill are very realistic and make for a nice touch in decorating the bathroom. If you like it, just look for the Payday toilet-seat on the major online shopping sites, it’s 60 bucks.

How Is This For a Gravestone?

Now here’s something you don’t see very often in a cemetery, a naked woman. And she’s sculpted on top of somebody’s grave too. Nice piece of artwork and the perfect company for the afterlife if you ask me. When I go, that’s exactly the grave stone I want.

How Five Years Can Change a Person

Five years may seem like a blink of an eye but this period can really leave some serious marks on a person’s body. Take this guy, Michael Campbell, for example. Here are some photos of him taken when he got arrested back in 2003. Not the type of guy you’d normally see working in a bank, but at least he looks human. Scroll down a bit and you’ll find some new mug-shots, taken in 2008, six weeks ago, after a new arrest. He has been keeping himself busy hasn’t he?

Meet a Superwoman

Doctors can’t really explain why jessica Cox was born with no hands. None of the prenatal tests her mother took showed there was anything wrong with her. And yet she was born with this rare congenital disease, but also with a great spirit.

Jessica started using her legs for things most of us can only do with our hands, from a very young age. She learned how to eat, how to write and throughout her childhood she got involved in activities like dancing, swimming and gymnastics. She took up tae-kwan-do at the age of 10 and she got her black belt at 14. She has a no-restrictions driving license, she flies planes and she can type 25 words a minute.

Jessica Cox is certainly not to be pitied, if something she should be envyed because she has done some things many of us will probably never do, and she did it with no hands.

Now That’s Gangsta!

This guy is the real deal man. He probably can’t afford a kick-ass ride but that doesn’t mean he can’t pimp the ride he CAN afford. Check out the cool sound system this little gangsta is dragging along, I love it. The tricycle isn’t too bad either.
