Ghost car

In 1939, Pontiac Built a Transparent Car from Plexiglas

For the 1939-1949 World’s Fair in New York, Pontiac had a special surprise in store. Working in collaboration with chemical company Rohm & Haas, who had just developed a new product called “Plexiglas”, they created an entire body shell for a 1939 Pontiac Deluxe Six. It was soon dubbed the “Ghost Car.”

Nice bridge they sold 'em

Early 17th century Fort de Roovere is surrounded by a moat and was originally built without a bridge. Yet, as part of a recent restoration program, it required the addition of an access bridge. Out of respect for the fort's original island status, Netherlands-based RO&AD Architecten constructed the Moses Bridge, a discreet "sunken" bridge that sits flush with the line of the soil and the water. The result is an almost invisible bridge that partially immerses pedestrians into the moat.

Windy City in the clouds

The city under the clouds: Magical image of Chicago reflected on Lake Michigan is captured by plane passenger coming into land

Chicago appears like a city in the clouds in this stunning photograph taken by a passenger from his plane window.

Plane enthusiast and amateur photographer Mark Hersch captured the jaw-dropping scene of the city silhouetted in Lake Michigan from his seat on a Chicago-bound flight making its final approach.

The late-afternoon image shows the low sun casting a golden glow on the water, which is visible beneath cloud cover.

The buildings of the Windy City cast long shadows out into the water - while closer inspection reveals another passenger jet near the centre of the picture.

Mark said the image is straight out of the camera, without use of image manipulation.

Matchstickmen: Unusual Giant Burnt Matches With Creepy Human Heads

Matchstickmen, is an unusual installation created by German artist Wolfgang Stiller. In generally, they are several large-scale burnt matches where the charred remains of each tip appeared as the face of a human. The artist didn't clearly explain the underlying meaning of this installation, which he wants to to keep it open and leave space for one's own imagination.

Taking it a little too seriously

The colorful history of this Soviet monument in Bulgaria, and why it angers Russia

The continuing destruction of Soviet-era monuments in Ukraine has caused a stir in Russia, where such monuments are often linked to a historical pride for the sacrifices made during World War II. [...]

The statue-related outrage isn't limited to Ukraine though. A Soviet-era monument in Sofia, Bulgaria, was the site of anger earlier this week after the Euronews television channel posted the above picture [first of the four images below. JdJ] to its Facebook page. The problem? The statue had been painted yellow and blue, the colors of the Ukrainian flag. According to Ria Novosti, Euronews swiftly deleted the image after a complaint from Russia and apologized. The Russian Foreign Ministry has also asked Bulgaria to “take all necessary measures to prevent mockeries of the memory of Soviet soldiers who sacrificed their lives for the liberation of Bulgaria and Europe from Nazism," according to the Itar-Tass news agency.

As the picture below shows, this monument has something of a colorful history:

Adrenaline rush

It's REAL: Russian doctors confirm picture of mugging victim with a six-inch knife in her back is genuine

An extraordinary picture that has gone around the world of a knife plunged into the back of a woman mugging victim is genuine, it was revealed by doctors in Moscow tonight.

Julia Popova, 22, was stabbed by a mugger as she walked home from work one day last autumn - but she was so traumatised by the attack that she walked home without realising the knife was embedded in her, just a fraction of an inch from her spinal cord.

In the image, blood is shown gushing from the wound as surgeons stare in awe, apparently preparing to operate to remove the six-inch blade.

'This is our photo, she was here,' a senior doctor at the hospital in the north of the Russian capital told the MailOnline last night.

A Spacesuit Floats Free Image Credit: ISS Expedition 12 Crew, NASA

Explanation: A spacesuit floated away from the International Space Station eight years ago, but no investigation was conducted. Everyone knew that it was pushed by the space station crew. Dubbed Suitsat-1, the unneeded Russian Orlan spacesuit filled mostly with old clothes was fitted with a faint radio transmitter and released to orbit the Earth. The suit circled the Earth twice before its radio signal became unexpectedly weak. Suitsat-1 continued to orbit every 90 minutes until it burned up in the Earth's atmosphere after a few weeks. Pictured above, the lifeless spacesuit was photographed in 2006 just as it drifted away from space station.

Blast from the past (6)

This is one of several images of this wonder.

This 300 ft Wall in Bolivia has over 5000 Dinosaur Footprints

Located 5 km (3 miles) from downtown Sucre, Bolivia is Cal Orko, an imposing limestone slab 1.5 km (0.9 miles) long and over 100 meters high (328 ft). On this steep face (inclination of 72 degrees), visitors can peer through time to when dinosaurs roamed the Earth over 68 million years ago.

At Cal Orko you will find 462 distinct dinosaur tracks from at least 8 different species, totaling an incredible 5,055 individual dinosaur footprints. So how do thousands of dinosaur footprints come to be, on a seemingly vertical rock face hundreds of feet high? You’ll have to scroll down to find out.

Rare natural phenomena

The Hessdalen Light (in Norway) is 1 of 22 Ridiculously Cool Rare Natural Phenomena That Happen on Earth.

Hessdalen-light.gif

According to Wikipedia:

The Hessdalen light is an unexplained light usually seen in the Hessdalen valley in the municipality of Holtålen in Sør-Trøndelag county, Norway.

History and description

Unusual lights have been reported here since the 1940s or earlier. Especially high activity of Hessdalen lights took place from December 1981 until the summer of 1984 when lights were observed 15–20 times per week. The frequency of the lights caused a gathering of numerous tourists staying there overnight to see the phenomenon.[1] Since then, the activity has decreased and now the lights are observed some 10–20 times per year.

The Hessdalen light most often is a bright, white or yellow light of unknown origin standing or floating above the ground level. Sometimes the light can be seen for more than one hour. There are several other types of unexplained lights observed in the Hessdalen valley.[2] [...]

Possible explanations

In spite of ongoing research there is no convincing explanation of the origin of these lights.

Atop the Great Pyramid

Russian Photographers Sneak to Top of Great Pyramid and Capture the View

Russian photographer Vitaliy Raskalov recently visited the Great Pyramid of Giza with two of his adventuring photography buddies: Vadim Mahorov and Marat Dupri. Unlike most camera-toting tourists visiting the famous site (the pyramid is the oldest of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World), the trio was not content with sticking to visitor-approved areas: they decided to risk prison time by sneaking to the top of the pyramid and photographing that rarely-seen view.

This naturally occurring phenomenon makes an appearance for just 30 minutes on sunny days at 5:30 pm mid-October through early November. It starts with a small dark shadow at the bottom of the valley, and grows until it finally evolves into the bear.

Michael Paul Smith's time machine

This is one of many images of you can find of Mr. Smith's models of mid-20th century Pennsylvania.

m-p-smith-models.jpg

Check his Flickr site, or see his gallery of photos of his fictional town, Elgin Park.

Here's an interview and here's a video tour of Elgin Park.

His models carry me back, they do. I've ridden in many of those later model cars, through towns that looked like the scenes he sets up. The first car I drove regularly was a '61 Chrysler New Yorker that was a hand-me-down. What a ride! A lot faster than it looked but fuel economy wasn't part of the package. At the other end of the economy spectrum was a used '62 Ford Falcon wagon I got for $40 and drove for nearly two years. Man, was it ugly - and slow besides. But it was cheap to run.

Wide load

SteveR sends 15 images of moving (most of) the Asiana Boeing 777 that crashed at San Francisco. He writes, "I like the Wide Load photo - if that isn't an understatement, I don't know what is. :-)"

The pix & text come from a message making the e-mail rounds. (I don't know the source of the images or the author of the text.)

Wednesday night i was sent to a job at San Francisco Airport which I will probably never have to do again. Our company was tasked with moving one of the largest airplanes in the world across the airport without it breaking apart while crossing the other runways. I ran the crane on your left the aircraft's starboard side. A 265 ton Liebherr the other crane was a 350 ton Grove. The tail section was gone and they removed the cabin aft of the wings due to all the damage. Just the wings to nose totaled 185,000 lbs.

Backing up the truck and trailer. Truck and trailer looks like a 7 axle setup but there are 8 short axles at the back of the trailer. They are only like 4' long allowing for twice the amount of tires.
My little onboard computer telling me all i need to know

Under the fuselage at the wings is a beam and dolly set up that is basically four carts tied together with I-beams. Each cart has a hydronic jack to assist with keeping things level and can be adjusted from a central consul.
All tied down
Rolling out. This is the widest load I've ever seen with a 185' wingspan. The 777 has a 199'11" wingspan but 15' had to be removed prior to transport.
Runway 28L
First turn
Notice it was dark when we started. Took 2:15 min to cross SFO. They shut down the runways so we could move the plane.
Final stop. Will return next evening to hoist off trailer array
Well it's sad that this happened but the NTSB said this model plane is a survivable plane. Meaning the landing gear and engines are designed to sheer off and make the plane a "bobsled". The angle of impact is what caused the tail section to fail and rip off. The fact that only 3 of the 300 souls onboard died is amazing. Sad but a blessing in disguise.

Spreadsheet artist

kegon-falls.jpg
Tatsuo Horiuchi | the 73-year old Excel spreadsheet artist

"I never used Excel at work but I saw other people making pretty graphs and thought, 'I could probably draw with that,'" says 73-year old Tatsuo Horiuchi. About 13 years ago, shortly before retiring, Horiuchi decide he needed a new challenge in his life. So he bought a computer and began experimenting with Excel. "Graphics software is expensive but Excel comes pre-installed in most computers," explained Horiuchi. "And it has more functions and is easier to use than [Microsoft] Paint." [...]

Horiuchi first gained attention when, in 2006, he entered an Excel Autoshape Art Contest. His work, which was far-superior than the other entries, blew the judges away. Horiuchi took first place and went on to create work that has been acquired by his local Gunma Museum of Art.

Don't believe these were made in Excel? You can even download the excel file and play around with it yourself.

southern-fried-bacon.jpg

Some might call this "chicken fried bacon." But I'd call it "Southern fried bacon" to avoid the confusion some have with the term "chicken fried."

A few years ago, I was in a restaurant that had both chicken fried steak and chicken fried chicken on the menu. What the...?! I took that tautology to mean: chicken fried the way you fry chicken. Yep, that's how you do it.

I can remember when restaurants in the US South and Midwest routinely called their fried chicken "Southern fried chicken." But I haven't seen that on a menu for some time now.

One Great Wall isn't enough for China - but this latest creation won't do too well at keeping out advancing armies - because it is made from a staggering 85,794 Rubik's Cubes.

The giant mosaic, the biggest of its kind in the world, is 220ft long and 13ft tall and shows the skyline of Macau.

Each Rubik's Cube had to be solved by hand and placed onto panels before being assembled.

The amazing mosaic has been designed by Toronto-based Rubik's enthusiasts Cube Works Studio.

A man-made cloud

One of Time magazine's Best Inventions of the Year 2012:

man-made-cloud.jpg
That's not Photoshop. The Dutch artist Berndnaut Smilde has developed a way to create a small, perfect white cloud in the middle of a room. It requires meticulous planning: the temperature, humidity and lighting all have to be just so. Once everything is ready, Smilde summons the cloud out of the air using a fog machine. It lasts only moments, but the effect is dramatic and strangely moving.

Edison's cradle

Edisons-cradle.gif
A Kinetic Toy Reinvented with Light

As part of his senior thesis exhibition at Musashino Art University in Tokyo, art student Yasutoki Kariya re-imagined the ubiquitous desktop gadget, Newton's Cradle, using a lovely sequence of light bulbs. Entitled Asobi (which translates roughly as "playing") the 11-bulb installation creates a visual interpretation of the popular toy named after Sir Isaac Newton demonstrating his third law of motion regarding momentum: that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. However, instead of actual energy created by the kinetic force of steel balls, Kariya devised a method for using programmed light and two surreptitiously placed pistons to create this purely visual experience that's arguably more mesmerizing than the original concept.

If you don't mind climbing stairs

water-tower-house.jpg
Townhouse in the sky

Over the past two years, shoppers at a West London supermarket may have noticed a bizarre cylindrical dwelling taking shape high above the store's car park.

The structure from which it has been created - a 60ft tower holding a vast water tank - could not have looked more uninhabitable.

But since 2009, this concrete drum has slowly undergone an incredible transformation.

First it was sectioned off into three storeys and clad with timber, then a dozen windows were cut into its walls.

At present, the living space comprises a kitchen, reception room and bathroom on the first floor, two bedrooms and a bathroom on the second, and a 360-degree reception room on the third.
