CELEBRITIES & MODELS

Paris Hilton Still Cruising Around in a $375K Lexus LFA!

We don't post Paris Hilton pics nearly as often as we did a few years ago, so at least give us props for that! Obviously the main focus of this post is not Paris, but her wheels---the sweet ass 552 h.p. Lexus LFA. The thing looks mean. I gotta admit, I'd rather be caught driving around in this than the $1.5 million Bugatti that Flo Rida insists on pimping to dinner each night of the week. More bang for the buck, baby!

Chrissy Teigen is Fantastic

The photo agency for this says that genuinely delightful supermodel Crissy Teigen “gets cozy with Charlie Murphy (Eddie Murphy’s brother) on a Nike commercial shoot at the Raleigh hotel pool in Miami” this morning, although that certainly appears to be JB Smoove, not Charlie Murphy. But go up to JB as if he’s Charlie anyway, and yell out “what did the 5 fingers say to the face” as you pretend you’re about to slap him. It’ll go great, trust me.

Marisa Miller’s Ass in Celebrity Flag Football Game of the Day

Celebrities or “Hardly-Celebrities” always try to get into the action. If some big event is going down, they have to do some stunt to annoy the public with, thinking that we care, when really it makes them look like they are latching onto something bigger than them, for a little attention….so obviously when the superbowl came along – they had no choice but to do a flag superbowl for the stars, and by stars I mean Olivia Munn and Marisa Miller who are hardly stars to begin with, they shoulda thrown in that guy from the viagra commercial and one of the Extras on Golden Palace to make shit really legit and all I know is that if I was playing I’d be tackling Marisa Miller too.

What in the Hell is That?

Just yesterday someone sent me an article about Australia making it illegal for girls with small breasts to do porn, and I didn’t mention that sooner because I’ve been busy moving to Australia. So, while I’m not entirely sure what it is that supermodel Erin Wasson aspires to be one day, hopefully it wasn’t an Australian porn star. Yesterday she went swimming in St. Barths with no top on, and I’ve never wanted a model to get dressed so badly in my life. Licking her chest would be like licking a chain link fence. Except way way worse because at least the fence wouldn’t expect me to pretend like I was getting turned on.

PHOTOGRAPHY & EYE CANDY

Shots of NYC Traffic at Night

Some call it The City that Never Sleeps – and that seems truer at 2 am, while stuck in a Midtown traffic jam. The Big Apple may be the greatest city in the world (aside from Philadelphia!) but road work in the middle of the night can make anyone miserable. That is unless you are stories above it, taking gorgeous photos of cars, pedestrians, and bicycles passing under you; millions of bodies travel like red blood cells through the arteries of Manhattan. No other art form captures this as well as photography.

Bright and Colourful Photos of Tulips

Inspired by our community’s flower of the day challenge on the Light Stalking forums, we decided to get together a collection of a specific type of flower to show what others are doing. These photos of Tulips are here to motivate and inspire!

Decorated Gas Tanks

Local gas companies occasionally add a touch of character to the giant spherical gas containers that dot the landscape of Japan. Here are a few examples.

PLANES, TRAINS & AUTOMOBILES

Droolworthy: BMW releases M3 GTS specifications

Oh yes, kids and kiddies. BMW has just dropped the juicy details on the spanking new M3 GTS. Here's the skinny: under the hood is a 4.4-liter V8 with 450 horsepower and 324 pound-deet of twist. All that muscle kicks at the rear tires via a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox and helps the car get to 60 mph in under 4.4 seconds and on to a top speed of 189 mph. BMW's army of Bavarian engineers managed to slim the car's weight down to around 3,373 pounds, which should make the already wicked M3 even more devilish on track. Speaking of tossing the M3 GTS around on track, BMW has fitted the car with a bolted-in roll bar as well as factory mounting points for an additional cage. While the standard three-point belts are par for the course, the race-bred German comes with six-point belts for both front occupants as well. Stopping duties fall on hefty six-piston calipers squeezing on 14.9-inch rotors up front and four-piston blocks out back.

Nissan’s New EV Tech Goes Beyond Batteries

By showing off a new EV meant for sharing, and previewing the in-car technology to be used in the Leaf, Nissan proved that the most interesting technologies introduced on electric cars could have nothing to do with DC motors and lithium-ion batteries. The New Mobility Concept (above), which appears to be loosely based on the Renault Twizy, envisions a future where cars are shared and their roles are repurposed throughout the day. Nissan says the New Mobility Concept can be part of a “seamless mobility service” that connects the car with public transportation using a smartphone app. Though details are scarce, we envision armies of tiny shared EVs at central train and subway stations that get commuters to their final destination.

A Car Jack Perfect for Lady-Like Tire Changes

Car jacks suck. Most resemble a sort of medieval torture device, and you have to be some combination of Alan Turing and Charles Atlas to figure out how the things work and then to actually work them. So Remi van Oers, a student at the Design Academy Eindhoven, came up with a clever solution: a self-inflating jack that looks like less of a car tool than a new Apple device. Easy-Car-Jack has a tiny hole at its back that sucks air into an accordion-like balloon. The balloon -- which is made of ultra-thick, PVC-coated woven polyester -- then inflates almost immediately, propping up vehicles as heavy as 1.3 tons (about the size of an average European car or a small American car). All you’ve got to do is press a button. bonus: The jack’s lid doubles as an emergency triangle and safety light. Just pop it off and set it down on the shoulder a few feet away. That way, you don’t have to worry about getting creamed by passing cars.

Spied! 2011 Ford F-150 with EcoBoost V-6

Ford is about half a year away from starting production of the first six-cylinder EcoBoost-equipped 2011 F-150 half-ton pickup, but our spies have caught a tester SuperCab FX4 model racking up the miles. In the picture, you can see a turbo intercooler framed in the middle of the lower bumper. The EcoBoost twin-turbo system runs at up to 1,740 degrees, according to Ford. An air-to-air intercooler is used to cool the compressed intake air before it enters the engine's combustion chamber, and water cooling protects the internal turbo bearings in the high-temperature operating environment. Using two turbochargers, rather than one larger one, helps fight turbo lag.

TECHNOLOGY & OTHER NEAT STUFF

Starbucks, Ford, Google Named World's Most Ethical Companies

The Ethisphere Institute, a New York City think tank, on Monday released its fourth annual list of the World's Most Ethical Companies. The listing, of companies with at least 100 employees and more than $50 million in annual revenue, gives its winners an opportunity to trumpet their do-gooding ways. It is not a ranking, so they are all equally winners. To compile the data on which it bases the list, Ethisphere relies mostly on the honor system. Three thousand companies were nominated--or nominated themselves--to be considered. They each filled out a survey with items like, "Please describe your organization's projects and initiatives aimed at workforce sustainability and well-being."

The Worst Part of Going to Space? Your Fingernails Come Off

Did you think drinking your own urine was bad? To truly test whether you have the right stuff, imagine ripping out your own fingernails, on purpose. A couple of astronauts have done this before going into orbit, because they figure it’s better than losing them inside chafing, unwieldy spacesuit gloves, according to Dava Newman, director of MIT’s technology and policy program and director of the university’s Man Vehicle Lab. Newman, who has studied space-related injuries, told a group of journalists at MIT that some astronauts have reported losing their fingernails during spacewalks. Fingernail trauma and other hand injuries are spacewalkers’ biggest complaint, she said. In a forthcoming study, Newman says astronauts with big hands suffer the worst. National Geographic News explains that improved, custom-fitted gloves might be the solution. In a recent study of astronaut injuries, at least 22 reported lost fingernails, a phenomenon called fingernail delamination. It happens because of pressure on the fingertips, but researchers also think circulation cutoff could be to blame, NGN explains.

The 37 Or So Ingredients In A Twinkie

A popular rule of thumb among proponents of healthy food is that the fewer ingredients there are in something, better it is for you. With a remarkable 37 or so ingredients, many of which are polysyllabic chemical compounds, Twinkies would seem to embody the antithesis of that rule. The photographer Dwight Eschliman was never a health nut himself, but he was raised by one; his mom kept her kids away from meat, dairy, or any kind of processed food. When Eschilman went away to college, he loosened up a bit, allowing himself to indulge in all sorts of previously forbidden treats, but by the time he had kids of his own, he found a renewed appreciation for simple, healthy food—and a renewed skepticism of chemical-filled, preservative-laden snacks. He'd also developed a love of disassembling ojects and photographing their component parts.

Largest Solar Power Neighborhood In Southeast Built In New Orleans

The St. Thomas Housing Project had been a somewhat rundown low-income housing project before Hurricane Katrina hit, known primarily for its high crime rate. But now, the area has become the focus of several government agencies working to revitalize it through sustainable and renewable technologies. The new housing, named River Garden Apartments, is designed as a mixed-income development covering eight blocks and around a square mile. It’s currently the largest solar neighborhood located in the southeastern US, and the largest solar project in Louisiana, because of the 420 kW of photovoltaics installed on the roofs.
