Leshan Giant Buddha

At 233-feet tall, the statue depicts a seated Maitreya Buddha with his hands resting on his knees. His shoulders are twenty-eight metres wide and his smallest toenail is large enough to easily accommodate a seated person.

There is a local saying: “The mountain is a Buddha and the Buddha is a mountain”. This is partially because the mountain range in which the Leshan Giant Buddha is located is thought to be shaped like a slumbering Buddha when seen from the river, with the Leshan Giant Buddha as its heart.

The Cage Of Death

Without the cage you wouldn't stand a chance swimming with a massive saltwater crocodile.

But for brave punters who still want to get cosy with a feisty croc, a new Australian tourist attraction is offering the chance for a close encounter in the safety of a clear acrylic box dubbed the 'cage of death'.

Just 4cm of acrylic, a pair of goggles and a swimsuit, will separate thrill-seekers from the jaws of Choppa, a saltwater crocodile.

How To Make LEGO Gummy Candies

I made a silicone candy mold from Legos. You don't need to make a custom mold. There are many commercially available silicone molds, or you could just skip the mold completely and cut them with cookie cutters, a knife or even scissors.

Jedi Mind Control Game - Telekinetic Power

This is the Star Wars Jedi game that requires you to bring to bear all of your latent telekinetic powers of the Force in order to keep a ball levitating. Similar to EEG technology that reads the alpha and beta waves created by your brain, the game comes with a headset equipped with forehead and ear sensors that translate your brain's energy into a wireless signal that is sent to the game's base station.

The station has a tube with a ball inside (resembling the Jedi training remote Luke Skywalker used on the Millennium Falcon) that is kept levitating by a flow of air; your steady concentration adjusts the air fan's speed, causing the ball to rise and fall. One of the most famous Star Wars Jedi characters--Yoda--provides verbal encouragement during your training: "develop your powers of concentration, you will." You can progress from Padawan to Jedi Master through 15 levels of training.

Hill of Crosses - Lithuania

The Hill of Crosses -- a small mountain of approximately 100,000 crosses -- is a curious phenomenon. No one manages or organises it -- it just is. The Soviets razed it again and again, only to have the crosses reappear. As Prof Viatanis Rimkis explains: "During the struggle for our freedom, the crosses became a weapon that was invincible."

Custom Luxury Dog Houses

Some dog owners just can’t resist anthropomorphizing their canines by dressing them up in costumes. For the dog owner who isn’t satisfied with a costume, plunking down 5, 10 or 20 thousand dollars for a luxury mansion, villa, or cabin may be the next step. Some luxury dog houses are even air conditioned.

How far to the nearest McDonalds?

As expected, McDonald’s cluster at the population centers and hug the highway grid. East of the Mississippi, there’s wall-to-wall coverage, except for a handful of meager gaps centered on the Adirondacks, inland Maine, the Everglades, and outlying West Virginia.



For maximum McSparseness, we look westward, towards the deepest, darkest holes in our map: the barren deserts of central Nevada, the arid hills of southeastern Oregon, the rugged wilderness of Idaho’s Salmon River Mountains, and the conspicuous well of blackness on the high plains of northwestern South Dakota. There, in a patch of rolling grassland, loosely hemmed in by Bismarck, Dickinson, Pierre, and the greater Rapid City-Spearfish-Sturgis metropolitan area, we find our answer.

Between the tiny Dakotan hamlets of Meadow and Glad Valley lies the McFarthest Spot: 107 miles distant from the nearest McDonald’s, as the crow flies, and 145 miles by car!

Suffer a Big Mac Attack out there, and you’re hurtin’ for certain! For a coupla hours, at least, unless graced by the tender blessings of “manna from heaven” - that is, a fast food air drop from the Medi-Copter.

Behold, a visualization of the contiguous United States, colored by distance to the nearest domestic McDonald’s! There are around 13,000-or-so U.S. McDonalds restaurants.

How Much Candy Can You Get in a Pillowcase?

When it comes to Halloween, greed is most definitely good. And there's nothing like an old pillowcase - sturdy, voluminous, reusable, and environmentally conscious - to hold your epic stash. But you must have wondered - exactly how much candy could you possibly collect in a standard pillowcase? How many houses would you have to visit and how much ground would you have to cover to achieve that that elusive goal?

Postal Worker Busted Stealing 3200 Netflix DVDs

A postal worker who stole more than 3000 DVDs mailed by Netflix to its customers pleaded guilty yesterday to federal theft charges. Myles Weathers, who worked at a mail processing and distribution center in Springfield, Massachusetts, was nabbed last year for the video heist after Netflix officials became suspicious about the frequency with which DVDs were being pinched.

The Man Who Hasn’t Slept In 37 Years

And no obvious solution: my mother tried everything, but nothing worked.”

You have to admire bands like this that give a little something back to the fans that made them who they are today. The Smashing Pumpkins are giving away a 44 track album for free. And by free, they really mean FREE:

The album will feature 44 songs, 4 of which are now being recorded. My desire is to release a song at a time beginning around Halloween of this year, with each new release coming shortly after until all 44 are out. Each song will be made available absolutely for free, to anyone anywhere. There will be no strings attached. Free will mean free, which means you won't have to sign up for anything, give an email address, or jump through a hoop. You will be able to go and take the song or songs as you wish, as many times as you wish.

Cruise in Space for $35M in 2013

Virgin Galactic can keep their brief space flight for $200K. Excalibur Almaz plans on offering a week-long space cruise for the tidy sum of $35 million bucks. The company is using ex-Soviet space spyships as the vehicle of choice. I’m guessing that low-orbit is considered international waters so bring on the baccarat baby!

Apart from its fleet of old RRV capsules, now being upgraded with modern life-support and electronics, Excalibur has also acquired some surplus Almaz orbiter spacecraft, the 1970s manned space vessels whose crews were to travel up and down on the RRVs. These secret military spaceships were intended to spy on the Soviet Union's cold-war enemies from on high, under the pretence that they were civilian "Salyut" research stations.

Incredible Light Graffiti

The name light graffiti struggles to do these displays justice. The fantastic spectacles of colour – which are the latest trend in street art – are as impressive as fireworks.

A host of light sources, from flash lights and bike lights to blinking LED lights, are used to ‘paint’ a picture straight onto the camera lens. Also known as light drawing or light painting, these arresting images are created with long exposure cameras in the dark. Sometimes the exposures run on for longer than an hour.

UK Map That's Good Enough to Eat

This map is a real piece of eye candy – a model of the British Isles made completely from sweets. Artist Paul Baker turned the UK into Sweet Britain using more than 4,000 sweets in a painstaking model that even includes iconic British landmarks such as Stonehenge and Tower Bridge.

The two-metre-long creation, which took two months to make, also features edible miniatures of the Angel of the North, Silverstone racetrack and the Loch Ness monster.

How to Naturally Cure Jet Lag

Not eating for 12-16 hours can help people quickly reset their sleep-wake cycle, according to a study from the Harvard Medical School. This discovery can drastically improve a person's ability to cope with jet lag or adjust to working late shifts.

Scientists have long known that our circadian rhythm is regulated by our exposure to light. Now they have found a second "food clock" that takes over when we are hungry. This mechanism probably evolved to make sure starving mammals don't go to sleep when they should be foraging for food.

Energy-Producing Speed Bump Tested at Burger King

A company in New Jersey is testing a prototype of a kinetic energy harvester that looks like a speed bump. The device, dubbed "Motion Power Energy Harvester", is installed in a drive-thru at a NJ Burger King restaurant, where cars generate electricity as they drive over the bumps and pick up their Whoppers. Pretty interesting idea.

It looks like a flattened speed bump with long pedals across the top that press down when tires roll over them. That force turns gears inside, generating 2000 watts of electricity instantaneously, according to the engineers who designed it.
