The Whole Town Is On Sale in Latvia (36 pics)

Posted in Pictures 11 Dec 2009   / 13444 views

Wow, one Latvian town is on sale for some 323 thousand dollars…
You can pay by instalments for ten years for a small town with 70 different houses and buildings, among which there are ten residential buildings with 551 apartments, hotel, clinic, hospital, kindergarten, club, post office, boiler house, water tower, garages plus underground bunkers and shelters in case of nuclear war.
The authorities of Latvia decided to take this step because of the hard consequences of the global financial crisis.
So, would anyone like to buy it? ;))
Let’s take a look at the pictures of the town after the jump.

The Wheelie Bin Urinal (7 pics)

Posted in Pictures 11 Dec 2009   / 3912 views

The common problem of public urination in London has made designer Stephan Bischof to come up with the 'wheelie bin urinal' experiment.
The idea is to prevent men to pee everywhere in public after parties, soccer games…etc.
I think it’s not a bad idea.

Mysterious and Fantastic Phenomenon Never Seen Before (7 pics + 1 video)

Posted in Pictures 10 Dec 2009   / 10608 views

Early yesterday morning, the residents from Alta and Tromsø in Norway have witnessed a fantastic natural phenomenon. The local newspapers started to publish photographs submitted by readers: in the sky above Alta and Tromsø was formed a giant spiral with a blue glow inside. The spiral twisted right in front of astonished spectators. Photos that were sent were taken by amateurs, so it’s not the best quality.
Northern Lights are not uncommon in the Arctic and everyone got used to it there, but this time, it is something quite unusual...

Catch Me If You Can. 18-Year-Old Barefoot Burglar (7 pics + text + 2 videos)

Posted in Pictures 10 Dec 2009   / 34473 views

This guy’s name is Colton Harris-Moore, 18, who’s been playing with the police for the last two years in a “catch me if you can” kind of game.
He was born on Camano Island, Washington and started living in the woods at the age of 7. He broke into holiday houses in that area, stole some blankets, food and then went back into the woods for several days.

He is now charged with at least 50 burglaries and with the stealing of two light aircrafts which he learned how to fly with thanks to video games, but sadly enough, he doesn’t know how to land without crashing them. He also stole a speedboat and a car, which he crashed into a “roadside gas storage tank, using the explosion as a diversion to escape back into the woods.”

Home Zoo of One Arab (10 pics)

Posted in Pictures 10 Dec 2009   / 6303 views

All this zoo needs is an elephant sarcastic
What is surprising is that he is not afraid to go into the cage with predators and he treats them as if they were just dogs. Moreover, I would never put my child on the back of a big cat even if I was upbringing the animal myself.

Posted in Pictures 9 Dec 2009   / 7264 views

Erta Ale is a continuously active basaltic shield volcano in Ethiopia. It is 613 metres (2,011 ft) high, with one lava lake, one of only five in the world, at the summit.
It is notable for being the longest existing lava lake, present since the early years of the twentieth century (1906).
The name of the volcano means "smoking mountain" in the local Afar language and its southerly pit is known locally as "the gateway to hell"! Lovely…
Those are amazing pics, no more, no less…
