This little fella’s name is Junrey Balawing. He is 17 years old but looks like a one-year-old toddler standing at a mere 22 inches. He lives in Philippines and has three other siblings who are of normal size. Despite the fact that Junrey needs some help to walk and can’t stand for too long because of the pain, the young man never loses his smile. In June when he turns 18, Junrey is expected to get the title of the world’s smallest man according to the Guinness World Records.
Perhaps technology wasn't an option for their publicity campaign, as a group of people spent one month building an actual sign complete with small details like a woman riding a sheep (which doesn't even show in the final images). I'm pretty sure these guys were the overachievers in the gifted class at school. The image turned out beautiful as an advertisement for the city, but had they done it in computer 3d, they could have even adjusted it for each season by a few clicks of the keyboard. I'm sure it was a labor of love for them, but such an old fashioned way to go about achieving their goal. Go Gent.
You gotta love him or hate him!

Hotrod Ratrod Bathtub car has a 2400 stall converter with a turbo 250, automatic transmission, V8 Chevy engine, chrome headers and a bathtub. It can be a cool “rat rod or show car”, according to the seller. We can only add that it’s already an unusual show car, as it suprises and shocks the eye.
This beach shanty may be Britain’s most expensive shed. It is located in Worthing, West Sussex and has no view of the sea, is missing an entire section of wall and has nor doors. The asking price for this crumbling and derelict beach shed is £9,500. It is as good as a pile of firewood then a holiday home…
Do you remember an animated movie Up where two characters fly in a house? National Geographic proved that a flying house can be a reality. Engineers, scientists and balloon pilots used 300 weather balloons to launch a 16’ X 16’ house into the air. They set a new world record for the biggest balloon cluster flight. The house was floating for about an hour, going 10,000 feet high.
