1. Human Skin Rug
Yea pretty creepy I know. This rug comes from artist Chrissy Conant, this rug is best described in her words. “Chrissy Skin Rug” represents my relationship to my parents. The rug is a silicone rubber cast of my bare skin. I position myself as a human rug on a wooden floor with an open mouth and eyes that gaze suggestively upward. Parental influences from childhood continue to suppress me, long after I have grown up and they have gone. OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO K, let’s move on.
2. Egg Rug
O.K. this is a little bit more fun. Egg has broken new ground as it has taken the shape of a rug! If modern and innovative home design catches your fancy, then you gotta check out the groovy sunny side up shag rug from designer Valentina Audrito!
Are you looking for something to beat the summer heat? Are you too old to play with a water gun? Well don’t worry because here’s the Beer Blaster Liquid Shooter. True to its name, the Beer Blaster blasts out beer from the nozzle of a water gun allowing you to drench your friends in beer from head to toe. All you got to do is shake your can of beer or soda, slide it into reservoir shooter of the Liquid Shooter and when you lock the reservoir holder down, a small needle will puncture your beer can and the carbonation will give you sufficient amount of pressure to soak your friends with beer. If you want more pressure you can always give your gun a shake.
NASA released these images of the gulf oil spill. You can see the expansion of the last few weeks. Safe bet right now would be to invest in green energy companies. You can find a detailed energy report from Platts.com as well as oil prices and crude oil prices. This is going down in history as the nail in the coffin oil and the catalyst of the movement towards renewable energy.

“This award-winning documentary illuminates the unlikely pioneers that shaped the way we see pools.”
Thats pretty much says it all. Summer’s finally here, and that means that its time to gear up around the pool and get ready for everyone’s favorite drunken activity: catching a ball in mid-air while jumping in a pool. With the exception of watching 2 topless girls play chicken it’s pretty much the most fun you can have at a summer bash. The sketch group The Birthday Boys made a parody like “Dogtown and Z-Boys” that “illuminates the unlikely pioneers that shaped the way we see pools.” It’s a fitting tribute to a much-loved, but long overlooked pastime, and we love how they paid tribute to the Z Boys.
Is beauty only skin deep? Momma always said, ‘It’s what inside that counts’. Insert cliche about ’seeing things for what they are’ here. Read as deeply as you want. At the very least, artist Nick Veasey takes stunning X-ray photographs of the mundane, the gigantic, and naturally, of nature. Below you will find a small collection of his work which you can also check his website out here for more. It all started as explained by Nick Veasey himself, “My girlfriend’s father used to be a lorry driver,” explains Nick with a mischievous smile. “At one time he drove a lorry for a couple of days which contained thousands of cans of Pepsi, one of which had a ring-pull prize worth £100,000. “I thought I’d try a scam. I decided to hire an x-ray machine from a local hospital to find the winning can. I never did find it, but it sparked off the ideas for the career I have today.” (Click on images to enlarge)
Giving your kid a gun to hold while you take their pic or stripping off for a raunchy webcam session when your toddler is running around are two of the more common sights you’ll see in this gallery featuring some of the world’s most famous – and stupid – parents. Booze and cigs are high up on the idiot list of what some think is funny too not to mention dangerous animals. We all need a photo of our beloved with something that can kill them in a flash, sounds like a safe idea to us.
There is nothing like rocking out Sandstorm on a little toy trumpet. If I was this kid I would carry this thing around with me at all times, and break out sandstorm on the trumpet at very inappropriate times. Kid gets hit by car, sandstorm. Friend tells you his grandpa just died, sandstorm. Your girlfriend tells you she’s pregnant, sandstorm.
Seeing some poor guy, or girl, get wacked in the face with a baseball, basketball, football, any ball really is always a great time. So with Karma working it’s magic, as I walk out of work today I’m sure I am going to get belted in the grill with about 30 baseballs all thrown from major league pitchers. I guess you can say I’m taking one for the team with this one, here are a bunch of poor bastards getting blasted in the face with balls, enjoy their pain. P.S. That baby getting drilled in face by that basketball rules, if you don’t like that picture then your the baby.
Just when you thought you were done hearing about the eruption of Mount Impossible-to-Pronounce — I mean, Eyjafjallajökull — in Iceland, there’s a new reason to revisit it. Photographer Sean Stiegemeier wasn’t impressed by the quality of the photos coming out of the eruption, so he went there himself and took some mind-blowing time-lapse shots. The result is a seriously impressive time-lapse video of the volcano that will seriously flabbergast you. Although Sean missed the main eruption, with lightning and lava, he managed to get some of the best shots I’ve seen of the smoking volcano and the surrounding area.
Here are some stunning artworks by a talented Belgian artist Ben Heine, who combines the pencil drawings with photographs to produce special effects for these images. We actually just featured Ben Heine not too long ago here, he was the same artist who creates portraits using only circles, showing he is no one trick pony.
