The artist Song Dong, one of the most inventive figures in contemporary Chinese art, has turned the contents of his mother's former home in Beijing, which was also his childhood home, into the installation titled "Waste Not. These are all everyday life objects collected by Song Dong’s mother over the span of fifty years - clothes, books, kitchen utensils, toiletries, school supplies, shopping bags, rice bowls, dolls… That’s quite unusual. I like keeping stuff too, but not that and not like that… “Waste Not” was exhibited at the New York Museum of Modern Art.
California nightclubs Club Bounce and The Butterfly Lounge opened their doors to people who may not feel comfortable in other establishments of the state because of their weight. These clubs are still a novelty and they can be counted on the fingers of one hand, but their popularity is high. Visitors like the fact that no one stares at them and they can dance without fear of being watched and judged.
Here are some letters between the French and Irish governments about Mr. Sarkozy’s attendance to the World Cup qualifying play-off and how it all went wrong :) It is of course just a joke but a really funny one.
The millionaire car collector Andy House drove his $1 million Bugatti supercar into a lagoon after he accidently dropped his phone into the car. He said when he looked up after picking up the phone, he was startled by a low-flying pelican which caused him to crash into the lagoon. The guy escaped unhurt but as for the car, we don’t know if it can be repaired. For the record, he had paid £750,000 for the car last month from a dealer in Arkansas and it only had 500 miles on the clock. I would be so angry at myself if I was him, but he apparently was pretty calm. I guess when you’re a millionaire, things are different…
The crash was filmed by a passenger in another car who was enjoying looking at a supercar and was actually filming it.
Here is another post which material was sent to us by another visitor David Lees, who’s by the way also a general digital photographer. “Hi there, I've enclosed some pictures from the Zombie Walk which took place in Glasgow, Scotland on Hallowe'en this year, hope you enjoy them!”
A few days ago, when I saw this picture, I could not believe that this was possible. The first thought was Photoshop. Then I thought that someone deliberately threw a monk in the air for a nice shot. But today I found pictures that explain everything. As usual, everything brilliant is very simple )) Thus, the disclosure of water walking secrets is inside the post ;)

We can regularly hear about Congo, but in general, it’s rather sad stories than for something else. So, to change, we’ll talk about something I never heard about before today: SAPE! SAPE: “La Société des Ambianceurs et Personnes Elégantes”, or the society of atmosphere setters and elegant people.
You can see people of SAPE everywhere in Congo and it’s easy to recognize them because they have one important rule – a man has to be elegant! Though, it’s not all about elegance, a true member of the SAPE is a gentleman and a pacifist. So, among people dressed simply, you can see guys wearing $1000 suits! They consider themselves to be artists and are respected and admired by the whole community. I think it’s weird, but again, to each his own…
Very cute pictures of fathers with their children. It is something usual to see a mother with her child on a picture, but when you see a father so loving and caring, it is someway even cuter. And sometimes, when they play with their children, they also remind ‘big kids’ themselves :)
Someone on a Chinese forum posted these pics and he also wrote something like that: “look at my new fertilizer! Rich in protein!" This is obviously very stupid and one must be dumb to waste blood plasma like that. It was reported to the Chinese Health Bureau that started investigation and the thing is, this person who posted the pics was stupid enough to take close shots and so, we can clearly see from where the blood plasmas were taken: donor number, expire date…etc. I think it will be easy to find the culprit.

A girl wanted to buy fur for the coming winter so she looked on eBay and here is what she found among other articles. What the owner said: “Fabulous high quality fox fur. Very luxurious. Has tail and paws. Unfortunately, there’s one small defect – one missing eye, but it can be easily replaced. Take a look”. Watch the pics of this special fox fur after the jump and how some ‘photoshoppers’ had fun in modifying it. That’s something!
Juliana Wetmore was born in 2003 with a very rare genetic craniofacial disorder known as Treacher Collins Syndrome. The girl has no face literally, she’s missing 30–40% of bones in her face. According to doctors, the case of Juliana is one of the most difficult in the world. She breathes through a tracheotomy and is fed by gastrostomy. She has already undergone more than 20 plastic surgery operations and very soon she will have to have many many more. Doctors will never be able to give the girl a new face, but they could at least partially restore her skull and facial bones. « Our ultimate goal for Juliana is for her to be happy with who she is. She will be able to achieve any goal which she sets for herself or any obstacles put before her. We have no doubt that she can achieve this because she is so incredibly intelligent”, said Juliana’s parents.

There are no laws during a street fight, you can kick wherever you want and use all that you can find on the ground etc. Here’s as an example, a fight involving six men and several women in the streets of a Chinese town. Yeah, it’s true that they use anything they find while fighting.
This is Stacey Herald, 35, who is just 2ft 4in tall and who suffers from Osteogenesis Imperfecta, a genetic bone disorder. This disorder provokes severe respiratory problems due to underdeveloped lungs. She has already two daughters with her husband Will who have outgrown their mother. The first girl has the same condition as her mother; the second one is completely healthy. The third baby they are awaiting is a boy. The family is very thrilled. Stacy is risking her life to have this baby as well as she did while she was pregnant with the girls. Doctors say that when the baby gets very large, it would eventually crush her organs, strangling her from the inside out. But Stacy and Will hope that the pregnancy will go smooth and 4 weeks from now they will have a beautiful baby boy.
