Horror movie posters (87 pics)

Posted in Pictures 30 Jun 2009   / 14839 views

Some are fun and interesting to see especially for the movies that we watched long ago. Other posters don’t seem to be very convincing, but I can imagine that 10 years ago they were a bombshell.

Jewelry from the remnants of the dead (8 pics)

Posted in Pictures 30 Jun 2009   / 4363 views

This is an invention of the design student Anna Schwamborn. She makes jewelry from people’s cremated ashes and hair. So, if you wanna always have something from a person you loved, you can address to her and you’ll get some of her “Mourning Objects”.
As for me, this concept is creepy as hell…

Michael Jackson, the legend (139 pics +3 videos)

Posted in Pictures 29 Jun 2009   / 70480 views

Everyone can have their opinion of Jackson: good or not, but nobody can deny that he was a great man with great talent and now there will hardly be someone who can achieve what Michael Jackson did in terms of music, dance and vocals. The King of Pop speaks for itself.

After the jump, you will see Michael Jacson's story in pictures.

Apartment building fell down in China (12 pics)

Posted in Pictures 29 Jun 2009   / 102804 views

13-storey apartment building collapsed in Chinese city of Shanghai, which was almost finished. It fell without being destroyed, like a domino.
It gives the impression as if the building was razed as a tree and was laid down...
According to the official version, the reason of the building collapsing was the construction of the underground garage and the loose soil.

China has built its own “Venice” (25 pics)

Posted in Pictures 29 Jun 2009   / 34515 views

This “reproduction” is located in Macau, the South-East of China. Actually, it's owned by the Las Vegas Sands corporation and the Venetian Macao is modeled on its sister casino resort – the The Venetian in Las Vegas. You can find all sort of things over there like canals, frescoes, fountains, golden statues…etc. but also the St Mark Square and the Bridge of Sighs.
It is not worth Venice, but it must be nice to visit.

Fresh selection of these “real” men (at least they are likely to think so). But as for me, men should look a bit different.

I don’t know if most of these people really dress like that (I talk more about men) or if it's just promotional photos of a fashion week somewhere… at least I hope it’s the latter.

Unforgettable adventure

Posted in Pictures 29 Jun 2009   / 3836 views

Funny story n_lol
Unforgettable adventure
I quote the author next:

"For years now, of my life’s goals has been to scuba dive at the Great Barrier Reef. It may just have something to do with growing up in Alberta, the most bland, colourless, and featureless place on Earth, but pictures of the reef always made it look like the most beautiful place possible.

A few months ago, I finally made the trip. Not to dwell on the negatives, but here’s approximately what it cost:
Flight to Melbourne – $1500
Flight to Cairns – $500
Hotel in Cairns – $150
Dive boat rental – $200
Dive cost – $120".

Courageous woman? (6 pics)

Posted in Pictures 29 Jun 2009   / 4574 views

Riana Van Nieuwenhuizen shares her home with 11 "cats" - four cheetahs, five lions and two tigers.
I wonder, is she is really not afraid, especially when her 2 lion cubs and 3 tiger cubs grow up? They can be tamed and trained well but they are still wild animals...

The girl that doesn’t grow old (10 pics)

Posted in Pictures 26 Jun 2009   / 22719 views

At her 16 years old, Brooke Greenberg weighs 16 pounds and is 30 inches tall. Due to a mysterious disease, she doesn’t grow. Dr. Richard Walker said: "There've been very minimal changes in Brooke's brain. Various parts of her body, rather than all being at the same stage, seem to be disconnected."
Doctors hope that this single case will perhaps help to shed light on the mystery of aging process.
On the first photo, Brooke is one-years old. Look how she has changed over the last 15 years.

Many of you have already seen the road marking on the first picture, even if it is curved, it is at least understandable.
