Peaches Geldof Died Yesterday At 25

I've been writing this site for like, what, 7 years, and I still only have a cursory knowledge of Peaches Geldof. Like most of you, I know the name and the fact her dad was the Live Aid guy, but that's pretty much it. But, unless they were a monster, its always fucked up when somebody dies this young regardless of the situation. Everybody was sad about Mickey Rooney yesterday, but homey was 93. He probably added a nitrous tank to his wheelchair so he could ride into the white light fan.

Nicola McLean Cleavetastic Trapeze Feats of Daring for the Pussycat Circus

What awesome madness is this? A circus comprised of super hot girls with big ta-ta's doing tricks beneath the even bigger top? I've yet to see a single live act from the Pussycat Circus, but pencil me in for season tickets through the next century please. Nicol McLean was rehearsing her trapeze routine in a cleavetastic bit of Spandex, showing off her massively happy mams for the sake of the circus. You don't hold anything back when you're circus folk. You leave it all out in the three rings. Let's hope Nicola doesn't leave us hanging.

Ashley Greene Knows How To Dress

Looks like Ashley Greene was inspired by Teresa Palmer’s dress from the other night. Don’t get me wrong, Ashley looks awesome here. But if she wanted to make sure she won the inevitable Who Wore it Better contest, she should’ve upped the ante and gone full see-through. I thought young actresses were supposed to be super competitive. What gives?

Miranda Kerr May Not Be Flashing But She Is Most Definitely Super Fine

Hmm, these dresses where they cut fake seams that look right close to where the blessed nipples ought to be, well, unlike the inventor of stretch pants who needs exultation, the creator of this fashion abomination needs to be drawn and quartered and then drawn thrice more. Nevertheless, no mere piddling clothing industry protuberance could distract us from the inherent hotness that is Miranda Kerr, peddling her visual wares down the avenues of New York in a tight dress. It's Fall in the Big Apple and we are falling head over heels for Miranda.


The Most Iconic Photos Of The 1940s

Shot in 1943, this is one of the best-known pictures of World War Two, as it depicts the terror inspired by the Nazis. The image shows the destruction of the Warsaw Ghetto, which was home to thousands of Jewish citizens escaping the Nazi regime. Though the most poignant part of picture is the frightened little boy in the foreground with his hands up as he is forcibly removed from his hiding place.

The Street Views Google Wasn't Expecting You To See

Artist Jon Rafman's photo project The Nine Eyes of Google Street View, named after the nine lenses mounted on a Google Street View car, collects the strange and beautiful images they capture by accident from around the world

Least Likely To Be Adopted

The concept was to make “fashionesque images” of the longest in residence at the dog pound near my home (some dogs had been there over six months). I specifically asked for the dogs that were the “least likely to be adopted” and took their portraits to represent them with personality, youth and “edge” in order to aid their adoption. All the dogs pictured here were adopted.

Helium Balloon Suspended Bridge By Olivier Grossetete

French installation artist Olivier Crossetête's work 'pont de singe' conjures ideas of dreamlike surrealism - a featherweight bridge suspended by three helium-filled balloons, steadily held aloft a lake in tatton's japanese garden in the uk. Grossetête’s artwork toys with the disciplines of design and engineering, with this particular piece an extension of his earlier 2007 work 'pont suspendu' - an installation along a similar vein of three large balloons supporting a bridge-like structure, hovering over château ferry lacombe in tret, france.The work evokes a sense of abstract delicacy, transferring fanciful imagery usually reserved for daydreaming to reality.


The New Chinese Status Symbol? Ford's SVT Raptor

In a country with a gigantic population, extreme arcitechural designs, and one of the most popular markets for Ferrari, Rolls Royce, and Lamborghini in the world, it's difficult to stand out in a crowd. According to The Detroit News, there is a growing number of wealthy Chinese buyers that see the big and wide, powerful and strong SVT Raptor as the easiest way to stand out from the very large crowds of other wealthy people driving more traditional exotic cars. Although not illegal to import models from other countries, there are many bureaucratic hoops to jump through and layer and layers of red tape to pay for. In fact, according to some auto experts in China, new Raptors are being bought for about four times what they cost here in the States, meaning $145,000. Even a used one was sold for $109,000.

Mandated Collision Avoidance Technology makes NTSB's Most Wanted List

Lane departure warning and collision avoidance systems have largely been the province of upscale automakers or the range-topping trims in volume models, but that's beginning to change. Apparently, however, the National Transportation Safety Board feels that such safety features should not be the preserve of the well-to-do, however, suggesting that this technology should be made standard on all new cars and trucks. This announcement comes as the NTSB adds "Collision Avoidance" to its Most Wanted List, which the board uses to "increase awareness of, and support for, the most critical changes needed to reduce transportation accidents and save lives."

Hot Wheels Edition Camaro is an Instant Classic

Chevrolet might have known it had a winner on its hands last year when it unveiled the “Hot Wheels” edition Camaro, or maybe not, but this year the automaker will release the car as a limited-run package. Whatever the real reason is, production will officially begin in the first quarter of 2013 on the car you see here. After that, there will be a short production run where Chevrolet will build as many cars with the $6,995 package as customers request. Perhaps the most exciting thing about the car is that GM isn’t limiting which versions of the car can carry the package – at least not very much. Customers can choose between a coupe or convertible and between the V6 or V8 engines. The more specialized cars like the ZL1 and COPO, understandably, won’t be offered in Hot Wheels trim.

Mega-Hurricane Destroys 200,000 Vehicles, Including 15,000 New Cars

The biggest Atlantic storm ever in U.S. history, which hit New Jersey, New York and the surrounding regions with 100 mph+ (160 km/h) winds that caused at least 100 deaths, has left the East Coast counting its losses and trying to fix the damages. The catastrophe brought about by mega-hurricane Sandy damaged or completely destroyed thousands of new and used vehicles owned by dealerships as well as individuals. According to initial estimates, Toyota, Chrysler, Nissan and Honda will have to write-off around 15,000 brand-new cars. Nissan spokesman Travis Parman told The Detroit News that "between dealer and port vehicles for both Nissan and Infiniti, initial estimates have us at more than 6,000 units as 'un-saleable' to be scrapped".


How to Fix Your iPhone 5’s Crappy Wi-Fi

The iPhone 5 is pretty good, and for most folks, its Wi-Fi is actually very good. It was in our tests. But a lot of people have been reporting in that the Wi-Fi is actually awful, and can't hold a signal at all. This should fix that right up for you. First off, this isn't the same issue as Wi-Fi data bleeding onto your carrier plan (though the two could certainly be related). This new complaint has been observed by people holding an iPhone 5 in one hand, and an iPhone 4S in another, and the 4S getting full Wi-Fi bars while the iPhone 5 struggles to keep even just one for a few seconds.

Brick Trick: 3D-Printed Architectural Prosthetics Show False Lego Innards

3D printers are changing the world, for good and ill. Doctors can now 3D-print replacement bones perfectly customized to their patient’s anatomy while terrorists could potentially print untraceable automatic weapons. In between these extremes are projects like 3D-printed graffiti by artist Greg Petchkovsky. Some might consider it a next-gen nuisance, while others see it as the evolution of an art form. Petchkovsky’s graffiti is minimal and almost purposefully invisible. He finds architectural details that have suffered damage and designs 3D-printed “prosthetics” that attempt to fix them — but with a surprise twist. A broken corner of a sandstone staircase reveals a Lego skeleton; meanwhile, pitted clay bricks appear to melt, an homage to old-school “drip” style tags.

Detect if a Person Is a Threat at a Glance

It's not usually a good idea to quickly judge someone based on a quick glance, but Psychology Today points out that in some cases—especially when your safety is potentially threatened—it's good to go with your gut when you view someone as possibly aggressive. Citing several different studies, Psychology Today points out that in most cases, we're very good at immediately recognizing someone as a potential threat based on their face alone. While it's not foolproof, it is often accurate, and as Psychology Today notes it's good to trust your instincts.

These Robotic Fish Feed, Swim And Cluster Like The Real Thing

Anyone who has ever owned an aquarium full of fish knows that they aren't the low maintenance pets everyone thinks they are. But now, for the truly lazy would-be pet owner, it appears the age of realistic robotic pets as depicted in Blade Runner has finally arrived. At first glance, motionless and out of water, Takara Tomy's Robofish appear to be nothing more than cheap fish replicas. But slap a battery in several of the units, place them in water and you'll be startled by how realistic the Robofish appear. The randomized movements of the fish mimic the way real fish swim, eat, and even gather into schools of fish. Each Robofish is powered by two lithium-ion watch batteries which drive the unit's tail movements.
