Floppy-disk man bag

You thought floppy-disks were obsolete didn’t you…DIDN’T YOU?!?

Well as you can see that’s not true at all, I for one would love to have one of those, but I’m just to lazy to get to work. It’s nice to know that I’ve finally found some use to the hundreds of floppy-disks I have lying around in my room. Very original idea, my compliments to the creator!

Faith-the biped dog

Dogs need 4 legs to walk…or do they?

Well most of them do, but not wonder dog Faith. She was born with deformities, she only had one front leg and it had to be removed when she was 7 months because it was starting to atrophy. But thanks to the care of her adoptive owners Faith managed to survive and grow into an amazing dog. She learned to move by using only her 2 remaining legs, but, according to her owners although it was a very difficult process, it was also natural.

Faith has become a star and her owners have started the With Little Faith Foundation and they travel along with their pet, spreading their faith and God’s love to as many as they can.

Mountains in the Philippines

Who says agriculture doesn’t belong in mountain regions!

I have to hand it to these workers, they’ve certainly made lemonade with the lemons nature gave them. It’s definitely not easy to practice agriculture in this kind of environment, but they pulled it off in the Philippines and they did it by using their hands and tools, no kind of fancy machinery.

And I have to say that besides the purpose they serve, these mountains really look amazing!

Organic PC

Nature and technology coming together in a very unusual way.

I’m sure most of you know pumpkin is great material for pie and Halloween lanterns, but how many of you knew it makes a great PC case? Yup these photos prove that parts can be easily mounted in a big, orange pumpkin and still function perfectly. Original idea and great craftsmanship, my hat’s off to the guys who worked on the project, well done!

World’s largest moth

Who knew moths this big even existed?

The Atlas moth (Attacus Atlas) is is a large moth found in the tropical and subtropical forests of Southeast Asia, southern China, common across the Malay archipelago, Thailand to Indonesia.

These moths are considered the largest in the world in terms of total wing surface area (65 square inches). In Hong Kong the Cantonese name translates as “snake’s head moth“, referring to apical extension of the forewing, which bears a passing resemblance to a snake’s head.

Another interesting characteristic of the Atlas moth is that it doesn’t have fully developed mouth-parts, so it can’t feed…ever. It survives on the larval fat reserves, throughout their entire 1-2 weeks adult lives.

Gamucci, the e-cigarette

Finally, every smoker’s dream came true, a cigarette that’s not bad for you.

E-cigarette reviews say Gamucci is a device that looks, feels and tastes like a real cigarette but doesn’t hurt you, the ones around you or the environment. It’s a rechargeable device that uses sophisticated micro-electronic technology to deliver a true smoking experience, only without the tobacco smoke and tar that contain over 4.000 toxins. It contains water, propylene glycol, nicotine and tobacco scent and, instead of exhaling smoke, you exhale harmless vapors. So your body receives all the nicotine it craves but without all the other nasty stuff, it’s a dream come true and best of all you can legally smoke it indoors.

One rechargeable Gamucci cartridge is the equivalent of 20 cigarettes and the device’s battery lasts a whole day, when used with normal use (whatever that means).

If you’d like to know more about this revolutionary device and even order one click the link at the bottom.

World’s biggest burger

I wonder if your heart explodes after eating one of these babies?

The world’s biggest cheeseburger comes from Bob’s BBQ & Grill of Pattaya, Thailand and it was created in celebration of the king of Thailand’s 60th year accession to the throne.

Bottle-cap painting

Here’s another way to recycle apparently useless junk.

I must admit that, even though I’m very interested in recycling and the whole environmental issue, using bottle caps to create beautiful art, never crossed my mind. That goes to show you that we can find solutions to our problems where we least expect it.

This “painting” was commissioned by the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC), to celebrate Charleston’s master blacksmith, Phillip Simmons, who’s work can be found all over the Charleston peninsula.

Wooden bike

Another proof of artistic genius at work.

I’ve seen chairs and tables made of this stuff, but I never imagined a detailed bike could be created. I’m glad I was wrong, it’s nice to know everything is possible. My respects to the artist.

Women bodybuilders

You might not find not find anything odd about these women, but I for one think they look grotesque.

It’s no secret that women find guys with muscles very attractive, but for some reason, it doesn’t work the other way around. I guess some women just don’t understand that while most bodybuilders look more manly, female bodybuilders DON’T look more feminine! I’m actually jealous, some of these “girls” look manlier than me…and that’s not a compliment ladies!

Life-size Alien statue

If you’re a true fan of the Alien series, you’ll probably want one of these.

I am a fan of science-fiction movies but I can’t say I’m a die-hard fan of Alien. To tell you the truth, those aliens scare the hell out of me, always have and I’m pretty sure they always will. I can’t imagine waking up in the middle of the night, for a glass of water, and accidentally bumping into a seven-foot alien, my heart would explode for sure.

But hey, if your strong of heart and love the series, you’ll want to check the link at the bottom and order one.

The shark tamer

It’s not that I haven’t seen this before, but every time I see it, I can’t help be impressed.

Sure I have to handed to all the animal tamers in the world, it takes a lot of guts to try and work with some of the most dangerous and unpredictable creatures in the world, but I think getting up-close and personal with a shark in its natural habitat is the ultimate challenge. When your underground your reflexes can literally save your life, but in the water, quick movement isn’t an option, you’re at the shark’s mercy…the adrenalin rush must be amazing!

Tanning should be banned for some people

I can’t believe some people think getting a wacky tan makes them look sexier.

I don’t know about you guys, but when I look at some of these pictures I get hungry. Don’t they looked like huge pieces of fried chicken?!? And it’s not even natural, they either use tanning salons or that brown powder crap they rub all over their body. I posted a piece on metrosexual wanna-be‘s, and I thought I really found some unique pictures of unique people, but I see the disease is spreading!

A case of excessive privacy

This is a perfect place for everyone who loves privacy.

This beautiful house is completely cut off from the mainland. Nothing unusual so far, it’s not like there haven’t been any houses built on islands before, but this house practically spreads across the whole island, you go out the door and you find yourself swimming. I wonder how this house close to Oslofjord Islands was built.

It’s nice if you can’t stand neighbors though!

The newspaper house

Who said newspapers are only good for reading?!?

This ingenious project was built with the help of over 1000 participants, some who provided the newspapers and others helping in rolling them out. This original idea belongs to artist Summer Erek and it was built for Creative City. Here’s what the artist had to say about his project: “We all believed that moving into the digital era would diminish the use of paper. On the contrary, there seems to be a resurgence of printed material and newspapers, much of it free and everywhere – yet we don’t think much about where paper comes from and where it goes after we’ve used it. Newspapers pile up in our houses, lie on the streets and on public transport. The issue is not likely to disappear ; we must find creative ways to deal with it. We are urged to consume without thinking about how to discard. The first step is inviting people to think about and value the material itself, and to consider the issue of “waste”.
