Oddest anti car theft measures

No one wants to have their car stolen but still, this is a little over the top.

I wonder if any of these guys ever heard of car alarms. But then again who knows what neighborhood they live in, maybe a car alarm is useless. Stil, although I admire them for having a rich imagination, you need it to come up with this kind of solutions, but I they’re a little on the paranoid side.

What a trashy living!

I can’t believe people actually live in a place like this.

As much as we sometime resent our countries leaders for some of their questionable decisions and policies, but I have to admit living in a civilized country is bliss! This is Cambodia’s Smelly Mountain, a huge landfill where hundreds of people live their entire lives. they are considered the lucky ones though, that’s the most amazing thing. At least they have a roof over their heads, even if it is an improvised one and they get paid for sorting all the garbage.

If that’s the good life in Cambodia, I wonder what being poor is like over there…

This haircut is smoking!

And no, that’s not slang for cool.

I’ve heard about this technique a few years ago, back then it was the hottest thing in hairstyle, all the stars were lining up to try these new technique. I see that now it’s not as exclusive as it once was (those guys don’t look like stars to me), but it looks just as weird. I hear that one of the advantages of getting your hair cut this way is that it doesn’t grow as fast. I wonder if your hair stinks of smoke afterwards…

Frozen waterfall climber

How cold does it have to be to freeze a waterfall anyway?

Pretty cold I guess, but the question that really bugs me is “how crazy do you have to be to climb one of these babies?” I mean besides the fact that they don’t make them much steeper than this, they must be slippery as hell! Yeah, sure, you’ll say that with the right equipment it’s doable, but still, I think it’s just nuts.

Did I mention I’m not big on adrenalin rush? And no, that doesn’t mean I’m a coward!

Cement tube houses

I could think of a number of uses for these cement tubes, but housing is still not one of them.

But as you can see it’s very possible, and the people living in them seem very content. Sure you only have enough space to fit a small bed but at least you have a roof over your head…well it’s not exactly a roof but you know what I mean. I guess this one of those places where rich people come to experience what the hard-knock life feels like, before heading back to their luxurious mansions.

Would be nice if they had a toilet or something, though…

Backyard wooden roller-coaster

Who ever said you have to go to an amusement park to enjoy a roller-coaster ride?

Jeremy Reid decided to put all his effort into creating a fully-working roller-coaster ride in his very own backyard. It only cost him 9.500 pounds of lumber, a lot of time and $5.500, a very small price considering he created a ride with a maximum drop of 20 feet and a “lightning speed” of 20mph.

That wood seems a little rotten to me, so I wouldn’t have the guts to take a ride on these guy’s roller-coaster, but still it’s pretty decent work.

Cappadocia Cave Hotel

Yes, I know, another place I’d like to visit in my lifetime.

Cappadocia Hotel literally carved into the Yunak Evleri mountain cliff. It includes 6 cave houses, a 19th century Greek mansion and 30 rooms dating back to the 5th and 6th century. Another reason to visit the luxurious Cappadocia Hotel is the opportunity to explore its elaborate underground cities, cavernous churches and incredible rock terrain.

So if you’re ever in Turkey and can afford to spend some serious bucks on a memorable vacation, keep Cappadocia Hotel in mind.

Cooked rats actually look pretty good

You might not think so after seeing the first picture but check out the other ones and you’ll see what I mean.

Rats are a delicacy in countries like Thailand and Vietnam and many tourists try it at least once when visiting. You wouldn’t catch me dead eating one of those buggers, but I read they taste delicious, resembling the taste of rabbit meat (I hate the taste of rabbit so…). If you’re thinking of actually trying this “delicacy” make sure you cook it properly, otherwise experts say it can cause diarrhea.

I must admit they look tasty after cooking, like delicious roasted chicken, but as soon as I remember what they really are, I lose my appetite.

PC deep-frier

I knew PCs can get pretty hot, but not that hot…WOW!!!

After seeing people use pumpkins as PC cases, I shouldn’t have been surprised by this experiment, but I was. First of all, I had no idea a PC could function in a pool of cooking oil, let alone heat it enough to cook French fries in it. Wacky experiments like these always put a smile on my face.

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.
