Cheryl Burke is Sorta Famous, on Vacation

Dancing with the Stars' . . . um . . . "dancer" . . . Cheryl Burke was in the Dominican Republic yesterday frolicking in the waves. And no one really cared. No one batted an eyelash. Business went on as usual. One guy did point at her -- which got Cheryl pretty excited that someone recognized her -- but that was only because he thought he saw a boat behind her.

Kim Kardashian’s Gigantic Ass Eats Her Bikini

Adult film star Kim Kardashian’s gigantic ass was photographed trying to eat her bikini bottom yesterday. As you can see in the pictures below, Kim Kardashian’s booty was starving so it started to munch on her tiny bikini bottom. Ever since Kim Kardashian and Reggie Bush called it quits Kim’s ass has been missing the steady diet of dark meat it has grown accustomed to. Now it is beginning to act out by eating Kim’s swimwear. I fear if it does not get some protein soon it may go on a rampage and swallow a small child. Luckily Kim Kardashian is in South Beach, and according to the news 3 big buck Negroes are down there playing basketball. I am sure one of them will be willing to loan their talents to Kim’s considerable posterior.

Stacy Keibler's 30 Year Old Legs At A LG Mobile Phones Party

There was a party for LG Mobile Phones this week and Stacy Keibler was there with her legs conveniently exposed as if she knew we were jonesing for a gallery from her. Many of you new Busted Coverage readers have no idea that Stacy is dear to our hearts since we were one of the first eBayers to ever purchase one of her auction items. Yep, that is going to be a man cave conversation piece – soon. Anyway, pictures. Here you go.

Thank God For Brandi Glanville In A Bikini

Unlike Amy Winehouse, “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Brandi Glanville put on a pink bikini and quietly walked around the beach in Malibu, because she’s not a theatrical little cry baby. Fine Amy. Yeah, good, go do more drugs Amy, that’ll be fine, you don’t need help you know-it-all little bitch. Come on, everyone, let’s all go pay attention to Amy so her little hissy fit won’t go to waste.

PHOTOGRAPHY & EYE CANDY

Karlu Karlu - The Devil’s Marbles

It has been a sacred site for thousands of years known to the Kaytetye aboriginal people of Australia as Karlu Karlu and is known as such in four local languages. When first seen by Europeans in the nineteenth century, however, it was not long before the place had been given a new name – The Devil’s Marbles. Many of the ‘marbles’ are poised, almost at tipping point it seems and with spectacular visible effect. An inscrutable, unfathomable place of awe-inspiring picturesque splendor, the seemingly unsteady heaps of colossal granite boulders, dazzling open skies and eye-piercing sunlight create an impression which is quite unforgettable.

Photographer Loves Math, Graphs Her Images

Most of us can’t tell our secant from our cotangent. But the forms are everywhere, and Nikki Graziano wants to help us see them. Graziano, a math and photography student at Rochester Institute of Technology, overlays graphs and their corresponding equations onto her carefully composed photos. “I wanted to create something that could communicate how awesome math is, to everyone,” she says. Graziano doesn’t go out looking for a specific function but lets one find her instead. Once she’s got an image she likes, Graziano whips up the numbers and tweaks the function until the graph it describes aligns perfectly with the photograph. When graphed, this trigonometry function produces an ever-repeating wave of peaks and valleys that mirror the natural curves Graziano sees in plants.

Animal Pictures of the Week: 13 August 2010

Polly the piglet, in pink boots, is the new resident pig at Edgar's Mission in Willowmavin, Melbourne, Australia.

Drought in China

Scary pictures of a former lake in one of the Chinese provinces. Because of the drought, the total amount of water in reservoirs and ponds Autonomous Region decreased by 14 percent over the same period last year and now stands at only 149.3 million cubic meters.

PLANES, TRAINS & AUTOMOBILES

The Mercedes ESF: Almost Death-Proof?

An experimental concept car from Mercedes-Benz turns turns the entire vehicle into an airbag using novel metal panels that inflate moments before impact. The unimaginatively named ESF 2009 Experimental Safety Vehicle features gadgetry and safety features akin to a moon shot. Chassis components inflate to maximize impact resistance. An airbag under the car slows and supports the vehicle in a crash. Seats protect passengers like eggs in a carton. The list goes on. “Safety is a central element of the Mercedes-Benz brand,” Dr. Dieter Zetsche, Daimler chairman and Mercedes CEO, said in a statement. “In this respect we have been setting the pace in the market for almost 70 years. The ESF 2009 shows that we still have plenty of ideas and the absolute will to lead the automobile industry in this field even in the future.” The ESF is just a concept at this point, and it could be years before any of its features appear in showrooms. But the car highlights the efforts automakers are making to build cars that protect us from each other. And ourselves.

The Weirdest Plane Ever Created By NASA

Your eyes are not deceiving you: The wing of this plane is oblique, turned 60-degrees across its fuselage. It's the AD-1 Oblique Wing Aircraft and it's the weirdest plane ever created by NASA. But why did they make it this way? The AD-1 Oblique Wing Research Aircraft was designed and made at NASA's Dryden Flight Research Center—located in Edwards, California, in the western Mojave Desert—in the mid-1970s. Engineers were curious about the aerodynamic characteristics of such a plane, as well as the control laws required to govern it. Their objective? Better fuel economy: Wind tunnels at NASA Ames showed that an oblique wing design will use half the fuel at supersonic speeds, thanks to superior aerodynamic qualities.

Love Pink? Car Thieves Don’t

Most people have a favorite color. They might paint their entire house bright blue because they love the color so much. Others have an entire wardrobe of their favorite color. Some even dye their hair their all time favorite color. Car thieves also have their favorite colors of cars to steal. Their favorite colors of vehicles to steal include white, black and silver. Why these colors? Most car thieves are professionals, and they steal cars to make money. Car thieves know that cars with the highest resale value include the most popular exterior color. In 2010, 20% of consumers drove off the car lots with a new white vehicle. 17% of sold vehicles came in the colors black and silver. Blue followed with 13%. A consumer pays the same for a yellow or white car, but the resale value for a vehicle with a popular color (like white and black) can sell for up to $1,000 more.

Alfa Romeo TZ3 Corsa unveiled at Villa D'Este

The Zagato-designed Alfa Romeo TZ3 Corsa has been unveiled at the Villa D'Este concours, and frankly, it's spectacular. Driven by the Alfa 8C Competizione's V8, the TZ3 is very much in keeping with its 60s-era predecessors, the TZ1 and TZ2, sporting similar detail elements and the same near-breadvan profile. Also like the originals, this is a legit racing car. Unlike its forbears, however, the new machine wears aluminum bodywork stretched over a tube frame and carbon-fiber chassis. Power, as indicated before, is also of thoroughly modern origin. Zagato says the TZ3 was commissioned by German collector Martin Kapp as a special celebration of 100 years of racing from Scuderia Ferrari, Alfa Corse, Autodelta, and Scuderia Zagato. On that "special" bit, we think it's safe to say, "mission accomplished" - with class and panache to spare.

TECHNOLOGY & OTHER NEAT STUFF

License Plate Frame Foils Irksome Traffic-Light Cameras

Traffic-light tickets have ticked off a gazillion drivers, some of whom have had to fork over $500 for running a light. Now there’s a way for you to throw a monkey wrench into that money-making machine. Jonathan Dandrow has developed noPhoto, which renders the pix snapped by those revenue-generating robo-cams useless. The technology behind noPhoto is fairly simple. At the top of the gadget, which doubles as a license plate frame, there’s an optical flash trigger that detects the flash of the traffic-light camera. That trigger sets off one or both xenon flashes in the sides of the noPhoto, so when the traffic-light camera opens its shutter, there’s too much light and the picture of your license plate is overexposed. Big Brother can’t read your plate.

Sony Announces the Death of the Floppy Disk

Fully 12 years after the original G3 iMac dropped support for the 3.5-inch floppy disk, Sony has finally decided to stop making them. The reason is a lack of demand. The surprise is that it took so long. If you still rely on the massive 1.44MB of space to move files quickly around between far-flung computers, don’t worry: Sony will keep the production lines running until March 2011, giving you a year to stockpile the things. You won’t be alone. Apparently, “lack of demand” is somewhat relative, and Sony sold a jaw-dropping 12 million floppies in Japan during 2009. The 3.5-inch floppy has delighted giggling schoolboys with its name ever since its invention back in 1981 and subsequent Japanese launch two years later. Now it joins the cassette tape and the 8-track in fondly remembered obscurity.

Why The EU Is Kicking Our Clean Energy Ass

he EU signed Kyoto in 1997, and passed laws to lower emissions by 2005. Five years later it had double the wind power of the US, and ten times the solar power. I know that it has been customary to compare the metrics on renewable energy development within the US as a whole to just one nation within the European Union, but it is misleading, as a comparison of our relative progress, because the US has a bigger economy than any one EU nation such as Germany or Spain, that it is typically compared to. It is time for us to compare the US with the EU as a whole to get an accurate picture, because it is easier for a larger economy to beat a smaller one in anything. This applies in any metric, but especially when comparing things like numbers of wind farms or solar farms, because how many people there are in a given area, and how much electricity they need (to produce and consume what percent of the global GDP) needs to be comparable, or the comparison is nonsensical.

Apple Support Says iPhone 4 Yellow Tint Problem Is Residue From Manufacturing

For the first time, Apple support technicians have pointed at a manufacturing issue as the origin of the yellow bands and spots that people are finding in their iPhone 4's displays. There's no official word from Apple yet, however. I too have the yellow discoloration on the bottom of my new iphone 4 screen. I called Apple and they guy told me that it is residue from the manufacturing process and that they rushed the shipments out to hit deadline. He also told me that its just because the residue is not dry fully yet and it should clear up within a couple of days. Presumably, this "residue from the manufacturing process" is the adhesive used to bind the glass with the screen, as pointed in our ongoing coverage.
