World’s Largest Natural Mirror: 4,086 Square Miles

The world’s largest salt flat, the Salar de Uyuni in Southwestern Bolivia (near the crest of the Andes, 3,650 meters high). There is an estimated 10 billion tons of salt in the flats, 25 times the amount in the Bonneville Salt flats in Utah in the United States. And it reflects shit. A lot of shit. It’s badass.

Man Spends 30-years Building a Model of Herod’s Temple

A model of biblical proportions: man spends 30 years creating a model of Herod's Temple

He spent 33,000 hours to build an exacting model of Herod’s Temple, it’s 20 feet x 12 feet, it’s still not complete, and all you people out there who think you can build models like tiny helicopters, teensy planes, little boats, etc., you all are not worthy of sucking his 78-year old left earlobe. Although if the type of models you build are like Giselle Bundchen, then you rock. (Via Telegraph)

Fly Powered Model Aircraft

Why would you do this? Because flies suck. They don’t do anything. They’re like ants and that Mitch Hedberg skit: “I got an ant farm. Them fuckers didn’t farm shit!” But now, with some matches, a razor, and some glue, those little bastards are finally going to pay.

Lucifer Made a Doll in the 60’s

What. The. Fuck. How did Lucifer find the time to design this evil little doll and market it amongst all the souls he was eating? What marketing executive was sitting there saying “No, it needs more laughing. Cackling even. People should be afraid to not buy this doll. If the devil possessed a child, how would that satanic baby laugh? Build me that. I can sell that. Hell, I could sell nails to Jesus.”

Big Man Japan Trailer: Freak Battles!

YouTube Preview Image

A middle-aged slacker living in a rundown, graffiti-ridden slum, Daisato’s job involves being shocked by bolts of electricity that transform him into a stocky, stick-wielding giant several stories high who is entrusted with defending Japan from a host of bizarre monsters. But while his predecessors were national heroes, he is a pariah among the citizens he protects, who bitterly complain about the noise and destruction of property he causes. And Daisato has his own problems -an agent insistent on branding him with sponsor advertisements, an Alzheimer-afflicted grandfather who transforms into a giant in dirty underwear, and a family who is embarrassed by his often cowardly exploits. A wickedly deadpan spin on the giant Japanese superhero, BIG MAN JAPAN is an outrageous portrait of a pathetic but truly unique hero.

Double-amputee New Zealander gets Turned into a Mermaid

YouTube Preview Image

Thanks to Peter Jackson’s Weta Workship, this woman has made the movie Splash come to real life. She lost both of her legs to the knee when she was a child, and Weta went and made her a mermaid prosthesis. Which makes me wonder, can she squeal like a dolphin at the right pitch to shatter TVs? She better watch out for Eugene Levy, too, that dude hates mermaids.
