World’s longest ear-hair

The longest ear-growing hair comes from India

Radhakant Bajpai has been acknowledged by the Guinness Book of Records as the man with the longest ear-hair on the face of the Earth. His ear-hair reaches 13.2 cm at it’s longest point, that’s about 5.19 inches.

Most people would probably feel ashamed if they had Bajpai‘s condition, but he takes great pride in his hair, and treats it with a lot of care. “Making it to the Guinness World Records is indeed a special occasion for me and my family. God has been very good to me!” he says.

Remote-control Hummer

I think this would make a really nice present for your inner child!

The “ultimate boy toy” as it was called in its press release, is the work of a British engineering lecturer, that managed to transform it from a regular H3 model, to a remote-controlled one. And it only took him one month’s time to do it. Impressive feat if you consider that it can climb a 16-inch vertical wall and maneuver in up to two feet of water.

Creatures of the deep

There are so many organisms that we still know nothing about…

And that’s the way I like it, I’m glad they’re are no ways to explore the dark ocean pits yet, it lets our imagination run wild, we can still believe there are huge monsters living there, that come up from time to time and attack boats, just like in the movies. But just the same, it’s nice to discover things gradually, like these beautiful pictures of creatures I for one didn’t even know existed. And some of them are not hideous-looking at all.

If you want to see even more images go here, there’s a whole book of pictures for sale, I reckon it’s worth it, especially if you have a thing for the unknown.

Beer-can heaven

Is this where all the beer-cans go when they’re emptied?

No this is just the apartment of a man that’s in-love with beer and hates to clean up. As you can see by looking at this guy, drinking is his passion and he has all those beer-cans to prove it. Drunks makes me sick, but filthy, lazy ones…there’s not yet a word to express what I feel for them.

Two-face baby worshipped in India

The little girl was born with two faces and now the locals think she is the reincarnation of one of their gods.

Ever since she was born in a hospital, in Delhi, the villagers from the little girl’s village have been singing and dancing, offering her money and asking for her blessings.

Doctors say the baby girl and her mother are healthy at this moment, but the parents want to ask help from the Indian government for the problems she will likely be confronted with as she grows up. We wish her well!

The Fire Dancers

That’s not actually what they are called but that’s what they looked like to me so that’s what I named them.

We haven’t really been able to find anything on these guys, where they’re from, or whether they do this as part of a show or something like that, so if you know anything don’t hesitate to let us know.

Whoever they are, I think what they’re doing is beautiful and the photographer deserves just as much praise!

UFO house for sale

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.

Real-life Simpsons’ house

I can’t believe I haven’t heard about this before, it’s been around for 10 years!

I stumbled across these photos and they looked strangely familiar, but I couldn’t tell where I had seen that house before. After some research I found out Fox and Pepsi built this house for a contest that a woman named Barbara H. won. The house is located in Nevada and it is an exact replica of The Simpsons house. How cool is that!

Flip-flops caused chemical burns

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.

One of a kind wooden car

Vasily Lazarenko wanted to create something extraordinary when he first started tinkering with car parts and many think he succeeded.

In his home town of Chernovtsny, Ukraine, Vasily took a year and a half to put together a unique vehicle out of a convertable and a luxurious saloon and then covered it all in oak. He says he will consider selling it if the buyer offers him enough to get his next wacky project going.

The Turbo-Beetle

Size really doesn’t matter people, this little bug is the perfect example.

Ron Patrick decided that conventional tuning wasn’t going to cut it for his 2000 VW Beetle so he decided to mount a $270.000 , 26,000rpm, 1.350 horse power Navy surplus helicopter jet turbine in the trunk of his ride. The Standford PhD and car designer says when the turbine kicks in, “it’s like the finger of God is pushing the car” but he only uses it until the car reaches 140mph, because he estimates that at about 160mph, the car would be airborne.

Patrick doesn’t use his little beast in races, because he feels he’s too mature to race with 16 year old fans of The Fast and The Furious. I’m not, let me have that baby and I’ll own the streets!

Dramatic weight loss

This girl wanted to be a ballerina a little too much.

This girl’s case should be proof enough that nothing is more important than a person’s health. She wanted to be a ballerina but she was to heavy for the job, so she decided to starve herself to death in order to fulfill her dream. Unfortunately she went “a little” to far as she managed to go from 72 kg to 32 kg in just one year. She now has several medical conditions and her body can’t yet process firm food. It’s not yet certain if she’ll ever be a normal person again.

Pierre Cardin’s bubble house

Some people just can’t stand living in a normal house and Pierre Cardin is one of them.

As the story goes, Pierre Cardin was looking to buy a nice house on the Cote d’Azur, but was horrified by all the unoriginal designs that he had seen and that didn’t match his avant-garde fashion designs . That one day he stumbled upon a construction site, where an architect by the name of Antti Lovag was building a bubble-house for some industrialist who happened to have died. Cardin was thrilled to acquire the almost finished residence that finally satisfied his exigent taste.

Not everyone liked Lovag‘s creation when it was finished in 1990, many went as far as to call it Crazy-house, but now it has become a historic monument.

The Rubberboy

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.
