CELEBRITIES & MODELS

Kelly Bensimon in a Bikini

It's been getting way too heavy around here, so thank God someone finally put a bikini on. Unfortunately none of you know who Kelly Bensimon is because she's on The Real Housewives of New York which exactly five people watch yet somehow you're dating one of them. On that note, to extract any sexiness out of this post, you're going to want to focus on the just-barely exposed areola and not the over-tanned wildebeest it's attached to. Trust me on this one.

Anne Hathaway Is Catwoman!

Oh I like this! Christopher Nolan who is set to direct the next Batman movie, The Dark Knight Rises, announced today that he has cast Anne Hathaway as Catwoman in the film! “I am thrilled to have the opportunity to work with Anne Hathaway, who will be a fantastic addition to our ensemble as we complete our story.” Anne’s star certainly seems to be on the rise! I think she’ll be incredible as Catwoman! Nolan also revealed that Tom Hardy has been cast to play villain Bane; “I am delighted to be working with Tom again and excited to watch him bring to life our new interpretation of one of Batman’s most formidable enemies.” Christian Bale of course will play the title role in the movie. So what do you think about Anne Hathaway donning the famous Catwoman catsuit?!

Hilary Swank in a Bikini. Did Not See That Coming…

Apparently it’s Random Celebrities in Swimwear Week, because here’s Hilary Swank vacationing in Hawaii yesterday which I honestly would’ve never predicted if someone gave me a Ouija board and made me spend the night in an Indian graveyard.

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.

Dining Out: Touche Hombre, Melbourne

Life has gotten in the way of blogging again. I’ve been distracted with other things like researching about my upcoming overseas trip, reading the Hunger Games trilogy and playing with my new iPad! I’m determined to clear some of my backlog so I come back from my holiday with a clean slate and can tell you all about my adventures. Mexican seems to be the hottest cuisine in 2012. I’ve eaten as many tacos this year as I have previously in my whole life! One of the newest Mexican eateries to hit the streets of Melbourne is the funky Touché Hombre. Located in the Melbourne CBD on Lonsdale Street, near the corner of Swanston St, Touché Hombre endeavours to be a mix of LA street style and creativity, along with Mexican taco culture.

Rwandan Hutu Militiamen Participating In A Demobilization

Rwandan Hutu militiamen participating in a demobilization and repatriation program arrive from Congo to a camp where they will be taught skills to aid in returning to civilian life, in Mutobo, Rwanda. In an effort to weaken an atrophying rebel movement that has terrorized eastern Congo for 15 years, U.N. peacekeepers are waging a campaign to persuade more and more of the rank and file militiamen to lay down their weapons and return home.

One-off Koenigsegg Agera R BLT seized by Chinese customs

About a month ago, we brought you news of a monstrously powerful one-off from Koenigsegg called the Agera R BLT. At the time we reported that the car was being built for a Chinese man of some great wealth and that the $2 million price tag represented the floor for a custom job like this. Now it seems there's been a bit of a development. It seems that the Agera R BLT never quite made it to its intended customer, having been waylaid just recently by Chinese government authorities. Customs officials took hold of the exotic, claiming that the owner was attempting to smuggle the car into the country as a way of avoiding paying import tax on the thing.

Turquoise Rolls-Royce Phantom In Qatar

GTspirit reader Justin just got back from a two week holiday in Qatar and Dubai. He spotted many awesome cars, but there is one car he would like to share with us and it is turquoise Rolls-Royce Phantom. Justin shot these pictures right after it was deliverd to the Rolls-Royce showroom in Doha, Qatar. He is not completely sure if this luxury saloon was made specifically for the Al-Thani family, which is known for their turquoise luxury and sports cars. The price tag on the Rolls was about € 500,000.

Rare 1971 Plymouth Hemi 'Cuda Convertible Heads To Auction

Only 11 Plymouth Hemi ‘Cuda convertibles were ever built, making them among the rarest and most desirable of Mopar muscle cars. Among Hemi ‘Cuda convertibles, it doesn’t get any more exclusive than one of one built, like the 1971 Hemi ‘Cuda convertible seen here. The only 1971 Hemi ‘Cuda convertible sprayed in “Plum Crazy” (and one of two originally built for export to Canada) will cross the block at Barrett-Jackson’s upcoming Scottsdale auction, as part of its exclusive “Salon Collection” of premium automobiles. The car in question comes with the 426-cubic-inch Hemi V-8 engine, dual four-barrel carburetors, the 727 automatic transmission, the Super Track Pak option and a power convertible top.

TECHNOLOGY & OTHER NEAT STUFF

NASA Autonomous Lander Hovers in Midair, in Infrared Video

Hovering landers or drones look as though they’re suspended in the air, because you can’t see the vortices caused by the propellers or the heat emitted by the thruster, or whatever mechanism enables the hovering. Well, here you can. And it proves that the act of hovering is anything but delicate. In a test earlier this month, this prototype NASA lander flew up to 7 feet for 27 seconds, proving it can execute commands autonomously, according to NASA. It was able to autonomously hover for an extended period, control its position and orientation and land successfully. NASA engineers were quite happy, as the video below shows. It’s a pretty neat accomplishment, but it is made much cooler by the infrared view shown here. What seemed to be a gust of wind (knocking a NASA meatball poster off the test chamber wall) is rendered a huge jet of superheated gas.

Pool Playing Robot Shoots Five Billiard Balls in a Row

Not every masters thesis will earn you street cred in a pool hall, but this one will. Thomas Nierhoff, from the Institute of Automatic Control Engineering at the Technical University of Munchen in Germany, programmed a two armed robot to shoot billiards…and to do it well. The bot, with seven degrees of freedom in each arm, was able to sink easier shots with up to 80% success, which isn’t quite world class level, but definitely beats my skills. Watch Nierhoff’s pool protege sink five balls in a row in the video below. Presented at last month’s ICRA conference in Shanghai, Nierhoff’s work demonstrates how advanced research robots are getting better at performing complex cognitive tasks. More than ever it looks like it’s a question of when, not if, robots will match humans in all kinds of physical feats. The answer: sooner than you think.

The True Face of Mario

Everybody knows Mario–Super Mario. And how: an oft-cited 1991 poll found that more American children recognized Nintendo’s cheerful mascot than they did Mickey Mouse. Almost two decades later, the famous cartoon plumber, forever clad in blue overalls, regularly stars in blockbuster games for the Wii and DS. Regarding Mario’s origins, it’s common knowledge among game fans that legendary game designer Shigeru Miyamoto created him for 1981's Donkey Kong arcade game. But few know that Nintendo borrowed Mario’s name and Italian heritage from a real man. That man’s name is Mario Segale, and he’s not a plumber. He’s a wealthy real estate developer in Tukwila, Washington. Segale unwittingly stepped into video game history by renting out a warehouse that served as Nintendo’s U.S. headquarters in the early 1980s.

Atari Pitches Missile Command Movie to Tinseltown

After Universal won a bidding war last year over the movie rights to Asteroids, Atari now hopes to launch a movie based on the classic arcade game Missile Command. The Los Angeles Times reported Thursday that the venerable game company has been actively pitching studios on the Missile Command concept. There’s a good chance, says the Times, that the project will wind up at Fox through former Newscorp CEO Peter Chernin’s production company. Missile Command, developed by Tempest creator Dave Theurer, first hit arcades in 1980. Players used a trackball to launch defensive weapons, protecting their cities from incoming missile attacks. As the Times points out, the game leveraged the Cold War anxieties of the 80’s. It was perhaps best known for its iconic and inevitable “The End” screen, a chilling scene of nuclear winter.
