Giant robot slippers on the feet, sound effects to go along. I think I would feel obligated to walk like a robot wearing those. Which is totally my style. Costs $30.
As they say, Rome was not built in a day. That was exactly what came to my mind when I saw the feat of Chinese firm Yingchuang New Materials. While Rome not being built in a day still stands true, we could perhaps soon handle the construction department, at least build city buildings in a day.
Having seen people vie and die to sit on the Iron Throne in Game of Thrones, we think the king ought to know better. The Iron Throne is one uncomfortable, if not downright dangerous place to sit on. Aegon Targaryen wanted it that way, and well, the others just followed suit. It might be possible, that had their asses been comfortably placed on the throne, the kings would be more compassionate, and Westeros a better place.
Oil Pumps, pumpjacks, or more appropriately, Nodding Donkeys as they are locally called can be seen across oil rich Texas. Often, the donkeys will find themselves decorated with cutouts. Austin based photographer Ben Sklar had been seeing the pumpjacks for a long time, and never thought of them beyond the role of tourist snapshots.
Need beer, can’t drink? Bid your time with beer lollipops. Well, we assume they aren’t as good as a real beer, but it just might be the stop gap arrangement if your options are thin. They come in three flavors: IPA, Stout, and Lager; and are currently priced at $10 for a pack of four.
Somethings come into existence just to make everybody happy, much like this Pizza Cake. PizzaCake is one of the innovations by Canadian chain Boston Pizza. They have an ongoing competition with several entries, the winner of which will be made into a real product. Really, there are quite a few great products waiting to happen on that list. We’d rather have several of them be real, but if it has to be a choice, the answer is PizzaCake.
We love dogs, but some breeds get to carry the tag of being “too aggressive.” Pit Bulls are one breed that often get labeled as aggressive and dangerous, and often have to pay for this reputation. Several of these dogs end up in shelters, labeled as “bully breeds.” Photographer Douglas Sonders is on a PR mission to remove the unjust tag from 14 breeds, that include the Pit Bulls, French Bulldogs and Boston Terriers.
