The world’s population will hit the 7 billion mark this year. National Geographic gives some context to what that really means, and it’s pretty mind blowing. One way to look at it, is don’t ever be down about being single, there are only about 4 billion chicks out there, so act fast.
Stop complaining about your life and start living it, be grateful, you are blessed, you really are. (Apparently we posted this back in June, sorry for the repost but I guess it is something that should be engraved into your mind.)
I for one am a huge sucker for fast food, I eat it a lot, and I like it a lot. Since I hit up every fast food place known to man on a daily basis I am starting to run out of fresh and new exciting items to get on the menu, so I think it is about time we import some of the world’s finest fast food items to the states so I can clog my arteries a little bit more. While some of these I would truly like to have in America, some on the other hand can stay the F out of my country.
2. Camembert Premiere (McDonald’s, France)
Fried French cheese nuggets.
As you know we have covered a bunch of ridiculous and awesome festivals during our time here at zoot. From the Day of the Goose festival (my favorite) to the 6 parties/festivals you need to visit before you die. Here is another collection of some intense bizarre festivals that would be a great time for anyone.
1. The Battle of the Oranges, Ivrea, Italy
Every year at the end of February, the small northern Italian town of Ivrea comes under fruit attack during the Battle of the Oranges. Thousands come from far and wide to take part in the annual Carnevale di Ivrea, and it’s safe to say that no one leaves untouched by pulp. Participants are divided into teams in carriages, who ride through the town and represent the emperor’s men, and teams on foot, which stay on the ground and represent the commoners. All, of course, are in full costume and armed with arance.
I know I haven’t provided you with your daily does of architecture lately so I’m coming back full force with this ridiculous residence. Palais Bulles is a home to famous French stylist Pierre Cardin. Amazing architecture and its size is stunning. The house is facing the bay of Cannes and has a territory of 1,200m² and gardens, and swimming pools spread on 8,500m ² territory. It is something out of this world, maybe not the most beautiful but I wouldn’t mind to spend there some time. This masterpiece of modern architecture is located 10 km away from Cannes and was built in 1989. Occupies the territory of 1200 square meters. In addition to the villa in the surrounding area are situated amphitheater with 500 seats, a garden with various water round pools.

Locks of love are the padlocks fixed by loving couples, on to a fence or a pole or metallic chain/string alongside some wall etc at a public place, to symbolize their eternal love. A couple would hang a padlock after inscribing their name or initials on it and throw the key away so that their love is locked forever. Some couple use two inter-twined locks, each lock bearing their name/initials. Besides lovers, often family members and close friends also put such locks at these places, to lock their relationship forever.
The tradition probably originated from China where the love locks can be seen at several locations alongside the Great Wall of China and also in many temples and on the steps/paths leading to sacred peaks.The tradition has spread around the World and is now quite prevalent in South Korea, Japan, Guam, Italy, Hungary, Latvia, Russia, USA etc.

Hope everyone had a good Labor Day weekend, of course we did hence the little vacation from posting new material we took. To get back in the swing of things lets start off with some bizarre sex laws from around the world. All I have to say is I am glad I don’t live in any of these places. The only sex law from where I live is that they have to be 18, and I’m cool with that. These sex laws are a little bit over the top though if you ask me.
