What do you guys think about this crazy project by Janine Rewell? Using vinyl stickers and a tanning bed, she gave this poor sunburnt boy some intense temporary tattoos.

Ice Age by Edgar Mueller


Edgar Mueller is the master of street painting who uses the street as a canvas. If one looks at his amazing art from the right angle, its three-dimensional painting becomes the perfect illusion. Edgar needed 5 days to the completion of this huge ‘Ice Age’ picture in Ireland. Together witвh up to three assistant he painted an enormous illusion of around 250 square meter large. We’ve got a unique chance to see the process of creation inside!

Rolls-Royce Phantom mobile phone store in India


It’s called ingenuity, and it’s given us such things as the cell phone and the Rolls-Royce Phantom. So why not combine the two to create a cell phone store in the back of a Rolls-Royce Phantom? That’s evidently what some well-heeled entrepreneurs in India did, purchasing a Phantom instead of a brick-and-mortar storefront, painting it up, and traveling the hillsides hawking mobile phones. It got caught in this regrettable pose – with rocks bracing its tires, because after getting a flat tire, the provincial tire shop had no idea how to fix it. But back to the ingenuity, mad props to the folks who came up with this: more attention-getting than Aishyarwa Rai, more convenient than Domino’s Pizza, and more comfortable than… a real store. The world is an amazing place, no?

The jet powered toilet (photos, video)


The jet powered toilet

Now that what I call a crazy idea. It’s more an “I did it because I could” idea, but definitely is world’s fastest toilet, at 70+ mph. The toilet uses a Boeing Jet Engine and costed around 10.000 $, but Paul Stender, the inventor, says it’s worth every penny.
The toilet

The toilet may only be able to run on a straight and flat road, because it would flip over if had to make a turn. There seems on window installed on the toilet so that one can really drive as he is relieving nature. This is a serious problem, since evacuating and driving simulataneously must be included in the definition of such a toilet, otherwise the toilet on a Boeing/AirBus should be considered as the fastest toilet in the world. Anyway, Stender should consider to improve his invention to be more applicable.All fastest blah blah except this one are obviously useful. So one may ask what the point of such an invention is; it seems having no scientific and practical value. Nevertheless, I think we should respect the inventor’s hardwork and ideal as that of anyone else’s, as long as the ideal is not evil. That the invention of the fastest toilet is to us may be the same as that quantum gravity is to practicle people. To my point of view, the inventor, Paul Stender is a guy with lovely imagination, who brought us fun. People like Stender contribute to the diversity of the creativity of the human being. Let’s take a look at the the inventor in the left picture below.
