World’s Tallest LEGO Tower Moves to Vienna

A few months ago I wrote a post about the world’s tallest tower near Legoland Windsor, in England, but now it is forced to hand over the title to the new LEGO Tower in Vienna.

Built by hundreds of children near Vienna‘s city-hall, the new world’s tallest LEGO tower ended up being 29,48 meters tall, beating the previous tower of “only” 29,03 meters. The LEGO tower in Vienna was built using a crane and several support wires that secured it against strong winds. After the record was certified by an official judge from The Guinness Book of Records, the LEGO Tower was dismantled.

The Tower of Vienna was created to celebrate the festival “100 Years of Friends of Children“.

Even Turtles Love Punk

And there’s no better proof than the fellow in these photos, he has a much better punk hairdo than I’ve seen on most of the human members of the punk movement. Photographed in Mary River, near the town of Kenilvors, Australia, this blue-eyed turtle sports what looks like an outrageous Iroquois hair-style. But in reality, the green “hair” on the turtle‘s head is just green algae that grow parasitically.

I bet any punk-rocker would be proud to have this lovely turtle as a pet.

Japanese Neon Lamp Fights

You have to hand it to the Japanese, they know violence sells and they market it like no other country can.

But this has to be the dumbest sport in history, two fat guys pounding each other with neon-rods until they’re both soaked in blood? I have no idea what this sport is called or who came up with the idea, but apparently it’s very popular in the Land of the Rising Sun, despite it’s obvious stupidity. I’d rather watch some K1 or UFC any day, this is just like wrestling only with real blood.

I wonder if those lamps are mercury free…if they’re not, do the fat guys know they could die from mercury poisoning?

Kate Moss – The Golden Girl

In the world of fashion Kate Moss was always worth her weight in gold, but now she really is gold…literally.

 British artist Marc Quin, famous for works like “Allison Lapper pregnant“, “Sphinx” or “Self“, a bust of his head for which he used eight pints of his own blood, presented his latest masterpiece, “Sirena 50 kg solid gold statue of international supermodel Kate Moss. The 1,5 million pounds statue is on display at the British Museum, in the Nereid Hall. A part of his latest collection, entitled Statuephilia, “Siren” depicts Kate Moss in a Yoga position and has already been named “the Aphrodite of our time“.

Marc Quinn‘s “Siren” is said to be the largest gold statue created since the time of Ancient Egypt.

Ghetto Wedding

I never imagined weddings in South Central L.A. were tuxedo and nightgown only, but I didn’t think they were this “gangsta” either. I like it, it’s very original, everyone can wear a suit at a wedding but not anyone can wear a spray-painted extra-large T-shirt like that. If that’s what did it for them , then good for them, they keppin’ it real…

Masterpiece-Replicas Out of Sliced Salami

Creating art out of food is not always easy, and if that food happens to be sliced salami, well, I’d say you’d have your work cut out for you. But someone managed to create replicas of masterpieces like The Mona Lisa, using only different kinds of salami and baloney, and it turned out pretty good. The guests at this wedding seem to be enjoying it too, or perhaps they’re just really, really hungry.

Food art is all about imagination, and this food-artist has a very rich one, that’s for sure.

How to use 300, 000 euro-cents

Well the last thing any of us would do is laying it all on the asphalt as a beautiful mosaic right? Stefan Sagmeister of Sagmeister Inc. did just that during the first edition of Biennale, in Amsterdam. Entitled “Obsessions make my life worse and my work better“, Sagmeister‘s work of art was made out of around 300,000  euro- cent coins set up on a 20×42 square meters surface. This intricate installation was a challenge to all passers-by, with so much money at stake, would people leave it alone and appreciate its beauty or would they just go for the money out of greed?

After the show was over the complex art piece was simply sweeped away with a brush.

What Coca-Cola Does to Your Stomach

There has been a lot of speculation about the effect of Coca Cola on the human stomach. There were those that said that the popular beverage could literally cause our intestines to melt if we drink to much of the stuff. Coca Cola always denied the rumors and said that their product is no worse than other soft drinks on the market and there was no official proof of the “dissolving effect“.

So a bunch of guys decided to conduct their own experiment and find out if the rumors are true. They just took a piece of red meat, put it in a plate and poured some Coca Cola over it. They left it there for two days and took some photos throughout their experiment. The Coke didn’t completely dissolve the meat but you can see that it doesn’t look like anything you’d like to have inside your body. And the smell was unbearable.

I’m sure pretty much everyone knew  that Coca Cola wasn’t the healthiest drink on the market, but I for one didn’t think it could do that to flesh. No more Coke for me!

Animal Love Caught on Camera

It was a hot autumn day in Texas when Fate decided to bring them together. Two Rattle Snakes looking for love suddenly found each other and the rest is history. As you can see from the photos, these two look beautiful together and just can’t keep their scales off one another. After the traditional courtship the two Rattlers left together to look for a private spot to…get to know each other a little better. Whoever said snakes were cold blooded should bite their tongue right now.

Pimped-out trucks

If you’re a fun of “Pimp my truck!” you’re going to love these babies. Some might say these trucks look way over the top but I guess that was the whole point of the tuning, to make them stand out in any situation. I’m not a big fan of trucks but I’d sure love to ride in one of these bad boys.

Self-defense instructions for women

The Japanese have decided to release a series of woman self-defense instructional images to help them fight-off aggressors. Judging by the moves depicted I have to say I pity the fool who would dare attack a woman trained in these martial arts. that head-blow alone would bring any man to its knees, the other blows are just for fun. Beware women-aggressors, you may become the victims.

A Sandwich Can Kill You!

This is the motto of Buns and Guns Restaurant in Beirut, Lebanon.

“They accuse us of terrorism, so let’s serve terrorist bread, why not?” says Mr. Ibrahim, the owner of Buns and Guns. The restaurant looks like a military post, with sand-bags to protect the clients, sounds of machine-guns and bombs instead of music and illustrations of different weapons all around.

Set up in a Hezbollah-controlled area of Beirut, Buns and Guns started attracting customers on the first day it opened and foods like “terrorist bread, rocket propelled grenade, Dragunov, Kalashnikov, Viper or B52” are becoming more and more popular.

Mr. Ibrahim says the only way a Buns and Guns sandwich can kill somebody is by its generous size.

Cape Stolbchaty

It seems almost impossible to believe that nature itself created the “stone organs” of Cape Stolbchaty, on Kunashir Island. But this indeed the result of volcanic activity at its finest. This natural wonder is formed out of thousands of rock columns that sometimes, under the pressure of the elements come tumbling down, breaking to pieces and forming piles that resemble firewood.

If you find the volcanic formations of Cape Stolbchaty interesting, you might want to check out The Giant’s Causeway and Garni Gorge

Why Stingrays Sting People

Well mainly because most of us are ignorant apes that only think of themselves…How dumb and cruel do you have to be to abuse a poor stingray that way? And look at the girls loving every minute of it, taking pictures with the “monkey” as if they’re at the circus. Why doesn’t it sting one of them, see if they keep smiling like idiots?
