This 80 Year Old Man Has Not Taken A Bath In 60 Years. Just Wait Til You See Him… Whoa.

posted on January 9th 2014 in Philosophy & Photography with 0 Comments

This 80 year-old man looks like a troll or maybe a creature from The Lord of the Rings. His skin is scaly, you can barely see his eyes and he smells to high heaven. The reason for this is simple, he doesn’t have a skin disease or terrible condition: he has just refused to take a bath for sixty years. A Reddit user posted the gallery below. It’s hard to believe this is a real human being.

The street in Madrid where 150 cameras are watching you

posted on January 9th 2014 in Arts & Inspiration & Photography & Sculpture & Social with 0 Comments

A street never had so many surveillance cameras pointed in one direction. This place has nothing special to do to deserve this attention. There is not a government building or a business center or a bank. It is a very normal street in the district of  Tetuan, in Madrid, where a few days ago were installed 150 cameras whose objectives aimed menacingly at anyone who passes by.

This Might Be The Scariest Trail In The World. But You’ll NEVER Guess Where It Leads. Unbelievable.

posted on January 8th 2014 in Inspiration & Photography with 2 Comments

What you see below is a mountain in China called Mt. Hua Shan. At its base, you’ll find a gigantic set of stone stairs, called “the Heavenly Stairs.” These stairs go so high up the mountainside, it’s hard to see where they end. If that wasn’t enough, the precarious stairs lead to the world’s most dangerous trail, the Hua Shan plank path. The plank trail leads high up the Hua Shan mountain just outside the city Xi’an. No one will force you to wear safety gear, although it’s strongly encouraged. The trail itself is dangerous and stunning, but what is at the top will really shock you.

Delicate Paper Bag Trees Created By Yuken Teruya

posted on December 21st 2013 in Arts & Inspiration & Recycle & Sculpture with 0 Comments

The amount of material waste that we leave behind is getting bigger and bigger year by year, yet the world of consumerism doesn’t ever seem to react to this issue. Sometimes it falls upon artists to promote awareness of certain cultural, societal or communal problems, which is exactly what Yuken Teruya does with his delicate trees cut from used paper bags.

Teruya takes traditional paper gift bags and cuts little paper trees out from them. The result is an exquisite little tree, somewhat resembling traditionally minimalistic Japanese art, framed in the paper bag that it once was a part of. The delicate art makes an equally delicate statement about paper bags being used wastefully as luxury gifts or shopping bags. According to the artist, each tree has a model. They are the trees that the artist saw in his neighborhood or from where he has traveled.
