Shauna Sand Went To The Beach

Damn, it's been a while since I've posted pics of Shauna Sand and her lucite hooker heels. It's just like seeing an old friend you lost touch with . . . if any of your old friends commonly lose everyday, household items up their vagina. "Found my keys!"

Rosie Huntington-Whitely Looks Stunning In Burberry Dress

Rosie Huntington Whitely arrives at the UK Premiere of Transformers: Dark Of The Moon at BFI IMAX in London, England. She is absolutely stunning! This is one of my favorite dresses I’ve seen in a long, long time. The dress, by Burberry, is so flattering on her. She just looks gorgeous!

Elizabeth Hurley is Flashy

Elizabeth Hurley flashed all kinds of nipple last night at the Love Ball in London. If flashing your nipple was equivalent to underrated cool events at the Olympics, Elizabeth would be curling. Seriously, who doesn't love curling? It's the only event where I feel like all the competitors should have beers in their hands. I may try out for the team.

Heidi Montag Tries To Be Funny, Fails, Remains Freaking Hot

Here’s everyone’s favorite augmented reality star, Heidi Montag, in a new Funny or Die video, in which she tries to be funny (I think), but fails miserably. Heidi goes on about plastic or something; I’m not really sure because I muted the damn thing after her doorknob of a husband showed up. Having said all of that, she looks freaking hot. I know, I know, it pains me to say it, but c’mon, she does. Yes, even if she is more plastic than human at this point, and a totally ditz. Enjoy!


The World’s Most Spectacular Roads

For those who consider the journey to be as important as the destination, road trips have long provided amazing views and a sense of adventure. Below are some of the world’s most spectacular roads. Fair warning to viewers: these images are shockingly attractive and have been known to induce wanderlust in those who gaze upon them.

Olafur Eliasson: Your Rainbow Panorama Now Complete

olafur eliasson's highly anticipated new installation 'your rainbow panorama' is now complete. set to open on may 28th, the permanent elevated structure provides a 360º view of the city of århus, denmark. suspended between the city and the sky, the viewing platform insists on the sensory engagement of those who enter it. as designboom previously reported here and here, the continuously circular pathway sits on top of and proportionality compliments the ARoS museum of art, designed by schmidt hammer lassen in 2007. measuring 150 meters around, the transparent glass unit is designed to act as a visual compass for the city, its colors marking the physical location of each visitor.

There Is No Spork

Spanish photographer Chema Madoz doesn't like digital photography, but he loves to warp reality in impossible ways. Like this spoon with a fork shadow, which is a straight photo, with no Photoshop or laboratory manipulation whatsoever. Madoz's world ties directly into the work of surrealist artists like Dalí and Duchamp. He doesn't like digital photography because, as he says, he needs to manipulate reality directly, not through Photoshop. He first creates his strange objects. Then, he just photographs them using film, in the most simplistic and clean way possible. The result are windows into alternative dimensions that often carry a message and they are always beautiful.

The Seventh Air Force At Iwo Jima

Seventh Air Force retained the mission of its predecessor of the defense of the Hawaiian Islands and until the closing months of the war it maintained its headquarters at Hickam Field. The command however, deployed most of its combat units to the Central Pacific where operations were best summed up by its air and ground views as "Just one damned island after another!" Seventh Air Force units deployed 2,000 miles southwest to the Gilbert Islands, then 600 miles northwest to the Marshall Islands, 900 miles west to the Caroline Islands, 600 miles northwest to the Mariana Islands, 600 miles north to Iwo Jima, 1,000 miles west to Okinawa, always edging closer towards the center of Japanese power. A map story of the Seventh Air Force would cover 3,000 miles north and south of Midway Atoll to Fiji, and 5,000 miles east and west from Pearl Harbor to the Ryukus.


1200hp Super Veyron Winds The Rumor Mill Again

A car as powerful as the Bugatti Veyron can do a great many things. Crest the 400 km/h mark. Burn through fuel and rubber faster than a jumbo jet on take-off with the parking brake engaged. But how about stop time? Maybe if you lay down all that twist in the opposite direction off the earth's rotation. Or bring back a rumor that first reared its head some four years ago. We're talking about the long-rumored 1,200-horsepower "super Veyron." Its arrival has been anticipated for years, and now accounts from Germany are bringing it back to life. According to the reports, Professor Ferdinand Piëch – the former Volkswagen chairman, Porsche heir and father of the Veyron – recently delivered a lecture at the Vienna University of Technology, wherein he briefly alluded to the emergence of the 1,200-hp Veyron, but revealed no further details.

Citroen’s Ten Best Big-Air at WRC

To build hype for the upcoming Rally Finland, reigning WRC Champions Citroen have released ten of their best “big-air” photos from this year’s rallies in Mexico, New Zealand, Norway, and Sweden. Having attended a few rallies ourselves, we know a thing or two about getting big air in a car, and we like it. The photos show Citroen’s star driver, Sebastian Loeb, and others catching big air as they push their C4 Rally cars to the absolute limit. Loeb said, of his massive, 85-meter jump in Turkey, “It was an incredible sensation as we were up in the air for several seconds. Not for a moment did we imagine that we would jump so far.” Hit the jump (no pun intended) for all ten big-air shots.

Pagani Huayra

The Pagani Huayra is the latest supercar from Pagani Automobili. The styling of the Huayra is more of an evolution of the Zonda's than a complete revolution. The Huayra has come in for some considerable criticism in the looks department, mainly from people who don't like the gaping front grille - and it's also been compared rather unfavorably with a catfish. Of course there are others who think the Huayra is a dramatic design which also manages to avoid looking like yet another generic supercar. Personally I think the Huayra is a quality design which will stand the test of time. It's instantly recognizable as a Pagani model - even without the badges - so it nicely complements the outgoing Zonda. And the interior styling is out of this world! An area in which everyone will agree the Pagani Huayra is a success is the engineering and drivetrain. Mounted behind the cockpit, within the carbon-titanium monocoque chassis, is a 6.0 litre V12 twin-turbo engine which produces 700 horsepower and 1000 Nm of torque. The turbos have been engineered to offer an instantaneous power boost, negating the effect of turbo-lag.

Study: 1 in 4 Consumers Considering a Plug-In Car

Cars with cords are coming. It’s inevitable, because everyone from Audi to Volvo is working on one. The first of them will be in showrooms by the end of the year. That’s great, but is there really a market for plug-in hybrids and electric vehicles? Consumer Reports says there is and it could be big — provided the cars don’t cost an arm and a leg. Consumer Reports surveyed 1,752 American adults and 26 percent of them said they likely would consider a plug-in car of some kind next time they’re in the market for new wheels. Seven percent said they are “very likely” to consider one. On the other hand, 72 percent said they are unlikely to contemplate getting one. Still, one in four is a respectable figure for a technology still in its infancy, and EV advocates say it bodes well for the success of cars like the Nissan Leaf EV, Chevrolet Volt range-extended electric vehicle and the Toyota Prius plug-in hybrid.


Authorities in Awe of Drug Runners' Jungle-Built, Kevlar-Coated Supersubs

The clatter of helicopter blades echoed across the jungles of northwestern Ecuador. Antinarcotics commandos in three choppers peered at the mangroves below, scanning for any sign of activity. The police had received a tip that a gang of Colombian drug smugglers had set up a clandestine work site here, in a dense swamp 5 miles south of Colombia’s border. And whatever the traffickers were building, the tipster had warned, was truly enormous. For decades, Colombian drug runners have pursued their trade with diabolical ingenuity, staying a step ahead of authorities by coming up with one innovation after another. When false-paneled pickups and tractor-trailers began drawing suspicion at US checkpoints, the cartels and their Mexican partners built air-conditioned tunnels under the border. When border agents started rounding up too many human mules, one group of Colombian smugglers surgically implanted heroin into purebred puppies. But the drug runners’ most persistently effective method has also been one of the crudest—semisubmersible vessels that cruise or are towed just below the ocean’s surface and can hold a ton or more of cocaine.

Crash Helmet With A Useful Smell

Cycling crash helmets have just one purpose: to protect the cyclist‘s head. But only completely damage-free helmets do the job properly. It is therefore recommendable to buy a new one every now and again, but nobody wants to throw away a perfectly good helmet. It would be better to know for certain that this is really necessary. A new process developed by German research scientists at the Fraunhofer Institute for Mechanics of Materials IWM in Freiburg makes this possible. The polymer materials or plastics produced by the process start to smell if they develop small cracks. Large cracks really cause a stink. The smell comes from odoriferous oils enclosed in microcapsules. "Cyclists often replace their helmets unnecessarily after dropping them on the ground, because they cannot tell whether they are damaged or not. The capsules eliminate this problem. If cracks form, smelly substances are released," explains Dr.-Ing. Christof Koplin, research scientist at the IWM. The capsules are added to a polypropylene mass which is injection-molded to form the final component. In the case of the bicycle helmet, the microcapsules are inserted in a thick foil made of polypropylene, which is fastened to the head gear.

How To Make Penicillin

Did you know that penicillin can be grown outside of a lab? This mold-based antibiotic can be grown as a science project using a slice of bread. Please note that these instructions should be used for experimentation only; when there is a medical need for penicillin, it should be obtained through a doctor. Making penicillin does require some scientific equipment, and it is very important to keep the area sterile while you are growing penicillin. Here’s how to make penicillin.

How New York's Subways Are Made

This tunnel-boring machine has been boring subway holes in the tough New York dirt for 30 years now, and has been brought into action again on Second Ave. Isn't it a beauty? The TBM was built in the 1970s in New Jersey, and has been reconditioned "like new" and reassembled in New York for this month's subway-digging work.
