Landing at St Barts

This is not the first time I have written about scary plane landings, and I also have to admit to a liking of the show “Airplane investigation”. I have never been to St Barts, but I must say that after seeing these collections of landings (or attempted landings, or in some cases even failed landings), […]

Missed Flight

Old one, but a good one. Lady reacts to missing a flight at Hong Kong airport to LA via Manila (since learning that she was on en-route to LA, this suddenly all makes sense!).I just love the repeated, ongoing and seemingly relentless despair that she shows at missing that plane. The poor woman, she was […]

Throwing Shapes

Ah shapes. Love them. But I have to say I am always especially impressed by shapes when they also involve copious amounts of hot air and oversized picnic baskets. Here are some of my favourites. Incidentally, you can actually buy some of these bad boys (in case you are looking for an innovative way to […]

How I Intend to Get to Work in Future (Part 3 – Flying Car)

Although it has been proved otherwise (see here, for previous post about the world’s most useless machine), in theory every invention should be fixing some kind of problem. Well the problem that this invention apparently addresses is (according to the company’s website) as follows: “Every pilot faces uncertain weather, rising costs, and ground transportation hassles […]

Brilliant Photos of Swarming Birds

I guess sometimes even birds want to be other things, and what better way to achieve this than to swarm in particularly impressive ways! Take, for example, these birds who are trying to be other animals. The first pic is stunning of flamingos making a flamingo shape. Or perhaps just birds wanting to smile and […]

Outstanding Cloud Formations

Trainspotters spot trains. Plane spotters spot planes. Cloud spotters spot clouds…. difference of course being you sometimes need a lot of imagination to make a cloud look like anything other than a white fluffy thing in the sky. Not this lot!

The Red Eye from New York to London

I recently posted about Christoph Niemann’s super clever representations of New York life as told through the rather surprising medium of lego. While checking out some of the pictures on his New York Times blog, I re-discovered this brilliant graphic version of the various sources of entertainment, boredom and frustration on a typical red eye […]

Learning to Fly

Do flightless birds make you sad? I’ve always kinda felt sorry for birds that can’t fly. Is the whole point of being a bird, the USP so to speak, not that you can soar in the clouds and look down at all the non-birds and laugh, poo or do both at the same time? Little […]

Naughty World Cup Advertisers?

At what point does it cease to be ok to associate yourself with a sporting event like the FIFA Football World Cup 2010. I was inspired by the 23 orange ladies (two of whom are actually threatened with going to jail!), who turned up at the Dutch world cup game apparently in support of a […]
