84,000 Coins Used To Create Giant Penny

An artist has worked full-time for three months to create a replica of a a Lincoln penny… using 84,000 pennies. Wander Martich had started collecting the coins in 2006 when she was going through a tough period during which she got divorced, lost her job and lost her home to foreclosure. And even after getting a job she and her two daughters continued putting $20 of pennies into a jar each week – which later developed into a savings account.  That was until 2010 when Martich decided to use her plethora of pennies to create a giant Lincoln penny for an art contest. Martich said she embarked on the penny creation as a way of telling her story and the work has now been acquired by Ripley’s Believe It or Not!… we hope they paid at least $840 for it.” w/ photos

Orangutan Stuffs 7 Apples In His Mouth

This orangutan at Moscow zoo gets to the core of his hunger problem as he chomps down on not one, not two, but seven apples all at once. The content primate was photographed by martial arts teacher, Olga Dmitrieva, 51, on an outing to the zoo. He playfully tossed one of the apples in the air before sitting happily and shoving in as many as he could. Olga said: ‘Sometimes the orangutans use apples like balls. This one crammed his mouth full – he seemed to do it for fun.” w/ photos

World’s Fattest Contortionist

With the ability to press his soles to his cheeks, turn himself into a human dart board, and dislocate his shoulders to escape from a straitjacket, Matt Alaeddine’s resume reads more like a medical examiner’s report. Couple that with his sizable mass — well over 400 pounds — and the city comic and contortionist has found a ticket around the world, securing him a place in the infamous Jim Rose Circus. Founded in the ’90s, the circus features extreme, often masochistic onstage acts involving everything from sword swallowing to genital lifts. Alaeddine is one of three Edmontonians in the American troupe of pain-loving freaks. The roster also includes his friends Ryan Stock and Amber Lynn Walker of the Discovery Channel’s Guinea Pig fame. Alaeddine, 30, started doing contortion as a street performer at the Edmonton Fringe Festival about 10 years ago, and it will likely be part of the act at this year’s Fringe, when he, Stock and Walker stage a show called Sick. When performing his contortions, Alaeddine stuffs his rolling hillsides into a gold nylon suit labelled “one size fits all” that he bought from the women’s section of a hipster-friendly clothing store.” w/ photo + video
