Awesome Superyachts: Nero

Its been a while, but I thought I would continue my little series on impressive superyachts. This is one that is very different to the first one (which was the ultra modern SeaForceOne). The absolutely beautiful Nero is however not old. Just not modern. She is in fact brand new, having been constructed in 2008 […]

Awesome Superyacht: SeaForceOne

With summer behind us, I feel its only fair to keep spirits up with a little series about superyachts. Of course I have written here before about, amongst other things, Mukesh Ambani’s yacht. But lets focus on some more. The first is called Sea Force 1. She is owned by a London banker who wanted […]

A Car Called Hurricane

Could this be one of the best cars never made? I have written on the subject of unusual and very unusual here before. But this one really captures the imagination. This concept car designed and built (in all too low quantities) by Australia’s Holden Motor Company is incredibly beautiful. The lines, the way you get in, the […]

Kissing

The United Colours of Benetton advertising has always courted controversy. Remember this one from 1991? Well they have done it again, with images probably inspired by this iconic 1979 image of Leonid Brezhnev and Erich Honeker then the leader of the German Democratic Republik.

House that Looks like Hitler?

I actually thought this was an April Fools gag, it would have been pretty funny if it had. But the article appeared on the 30th of March, so sadly that option is out. Which article am I talking about? Apparently (According to this Daily Mail article), a house in Swansea looks like Hitler. The house […]

Hang on, Whats Barbie Doing?

Wow. Some of these pics are a tad  on the disturbing side, many are also incredibly beautiful. Amazing to see what Barbie is up to these days! Certainly the attention to detail in each of these scenes is incredible, even if the subject matter of what Barbie is getting up to is, well, less cool. […]

36 foot dive into a 12 inch pool of water?

So as a world record holder myself (see here if you were not aware that I hold the world record for the most number of consecutive alternate eyebrow twitches in a minute), I can see the attraction of wanting hold a world record. This guy already had 11, so not sure why he felt the […]
