The Three Phases of a Man's Life




Guy Eats 200 Live Worms

After this, you may never look at linguine in the same way again.

Oldest Bodybuilder in the World

Ray Moon is well in his 80s but age has never been a problem when it came to his biggest passion, bodybuilding. He’s the oldest bodybuilder in the world and he looks awesome for his age. Here he is at the Victorian Bodybuilding Championship in Melbourne where he competed for the 2008 title.

A Car Cocktail

What happens when you try to build a car using parts from several different other cars. Well a Nissan Maxima owner from Kuwait wanted to find out first hand so he started working. He replaced the front of his Nissan with the front end of a BMW 7 series, the bumper of a BMW M3, he replaced the front doors with sleek Lambo doors, he got the hood split in half and got the rear wing of a Toyota Supra. You can check out the result for yourself, some will love it, others will hate it, there’s no in-between.

The Hospital Restaurant

An unusual restaurant recently opened in Riga, the capital city of Latvia. It’s themed as a hospital, with waiters and bartenders dressed as nurses and doctors. The tables look just like hospital operating tables, made out of stainless steel with wheel chairs or dentist chairs to sit in. The usual forks and knives have been replaced with scalpels, syringes and other medical tools, while the drinks are served in vials and medical bottles. Even the bathrooms have that crepy hospital feel.

Red crosses are everywhere and that’s the last place I’d want to grab a bite, but apparently the Hospital Restaurant is becoming really popular.

Crocodile Cage of Death

Although getting up-close and personal with a crocodile isn’t anyone’s idea of a good time, the recently opened Crocosaurus Cove theme park, in Darwin, Australia has introduced this situation as a breathtaking attraction.

For about $80 anyone can be lowered in Choppa’s underwater lair, in a reinforced acrylic cage for a 15 minute heart-thumping experience. Choppa is an aggressive saltwater crocodile rescued from a crocodile farm where he got into conflicts with other crocodiles. If Crocosaurus Cove hadn’t taken him in he would have been shot.

Animal activists criticized the new attraction saying it was taunting the crocodile and intruding in his environment but the staff says the animal has been given a home and is treated like a king, a much better alternative than death.

So if you’re ever in Darwin and looking for a unique thrill, head over to Crocosaurus Cove and meet Choppa. You can get the same adrenalin rush at the Crocodile Wildlife Ranch, in South Africa

The Incredible Surfing Mice

Mice aren’t the most water-loving creatures in the world, but apparently Australian Shane Wilmott has trained his three little mice not only to love water but also to ride the waves on surf-boards. Shane says this way he has merged his love for surfing and for his three little rodent pets. Make sure you watch the video at the bottom of the post.

Prada Shop in the Middle of the Desert

The last thing someone would expect to see in the Texas Desert is a luxury boutique, right? Well that’s what German artists Michael Elmgreen and Ingar Dragset were thinking when they decided to build their Prada masterpiece near the town of Marfa. What looks like a small and elegant Prada shoe-store is actually just an art project, the shoes on display are real Prada creations but there is no door to this shop, so no, you can’t buy any of them.

Miuccia Prada allowed the artists to use her brand for their art project and even picked out the shoes that are now on display. So if you’re ever in Marfa, Texas and you see the Prada boutique, just admire it from the outside, don’t force the door.

The Next Batmobile Car?

Well I doubt it, but you have to admit if this tuned up Smart would be the next Batmobile everyone’s jaws would hit the floor. I’m not holding my breath for this ever happening, but a guy can dream. The Batsmart concept was presented at SEMA 2008 auto-show.
