This one of the craziest, most awesome things you’ll ever see: a trailer truck jumping over a Formula 1 car as it passes through just at the right moment underneath. No CGI was involved in the making of the stunt, just lots of balls. The entire thing was organized by stuntman Mike Ryan, who also happened to be the truck’s driver. Martin Ivanov drove the Lotus F1 car.
Prosciutto di Parma (Parma ham) is known all around the world and is used in high-end restaurants, sold in delis, and if you’re lucky, used on pizzas in authentic pizzerias. It’s a product ‘whose quality is regulated with a clinical intensity’. There’s even an official body in charge for safeguarding, protecting and promoting Parma ham. This […]
There’s a bunch of no-sugar diet plans making the rounds on social media, but one man is doing the complete opposite. Calling his ‘experiment’ 10 Cokes A Day, George Prior plans to drink (as the title indicates) 10 cans of Coke a day. No Diet Coke, no Coke Zero-just full-strength sugary Coke (and Cherry Coke). […]
Nickelodeon and Toyota recently collaborated to make a car who lives in a pineapple under the sea. Currently on display at the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show, the Spongebob Squarepants-themed concept car was created to promote the Toyota Sienna and ‘The Spongebob Movie: Sponge Out of Water’. If you haven’t noticed by now, the car’s […]

These graphic versions of famous fashion legends may be stripped down to just 8 bits, but somehow they emit a striking and complex aura similar to their real life selves. 8biticons.com has been generating versions of notable icons on […]
After KLM announced its retirement of the MD-11 passenger jets, they have stopped at nothing to continue to change for the better.
Don’t tell Apple, but there’s a real apple store out there. A real apple store that sells real apples, not apple computers. In observance of Apple Day (yes, it’s a thing!), Londoners were treated to a rather groovy installation at the historic Borough Market on the south bank this past October. TinMan and Teatime agencies […]
Dutch artist Juuke Schoorl likes to explore the aesthetic possibilities of skin, and it might be hard to believe but these are all created without any Photoshop work. Her graduation project is known as ‘REK’ which means ‘stretch’ in Dutch, and it illustrates Schoorl’s fascination with the human body and the ways it can be […]
Hungry for brains? To promote the new Surgeon Simulator game, Miss Cakehead and London Mess organized an incredibly stomach churning dinner that replicated the gory game. Guests were served a five-course dinner in a mock-up operating room that had a real life ‘patient’ on the operating table to feast from. Yeah, it’s nasty. During the […]
Come and get it, ladies, I know you want it. Chinese artist Zhu Tian has created the most disgusting, unwearable shoe you’ll ever see: ‘Babe’, a set of flesh-colored stilettos covered in disheveled human hair.
Think ‘ice age’, and you’d probably think about Antarctica. Maybe we napped our way through geography classes when we were young enough to be in school… still, who knew that there’s rather compelling geographical evidence to show that Hallett Cove Conservation Park has seen the ice age 280 million or so years ago?
For the past two years, Italian street artist ‘Blu’, has been spending time working on and living in an old military warehouse in Rome. Just recently, he’s finished work on the building, having turned its 50 windows into mouths and eyes of 27 colorful and strange creatures. The giant mural is as beautiful as it is eerie.
We’re in awe of the highly anticipated new Canon EOS 5D Mark III. With supercharged EOS performance and stunning full frame, high-resolution image capture, the EOS 5D Mark III is certainly designed to perform. The EOS 5D Mark III is ideal for shooting weddings in the studio or out in the field, and even better for still photography.
This is a story begging to be told. For more than 10 years, American artist Ra Paulette treks a mile by himself to the sandstone mesas of northern New Mexico. Day by day, he patiently chipped and scraped away the walls of these sandstone caverns to produce a sculpted masterpiece of interlocking caverns.
This is pretty fascinating: Mitch Moxley recently penned a first-hand account in The Atlantic about how white expatriates are now moonlighting as fake businessmen to add a bit of foreign allure to ribbon-cutting ceremonies and the such in China. As his Chinese-language tutor remarked, ‘Having foreigners in nice suits gives the company face.’
