World’s Heaviest Insect

A nature-lover has revealed how he spent two days tracking down a giant insect on a remote New Zealand island – and got it to eat a carrot out of his hand. Mark Moffett’s find is the world’s biggest insect in terms of weight, which at 2.5 ounces is heavier than a sparrow and three times that of a mouse. The 53-year-old former park ranger discovered the giant weta up a tree and his real life Bug’s Bunny has now been declared the largest ever found. He came across the cricket-like creature, which has a wing span of seven inches, after two days of searching on a tiny island. The creepy crawly is only found on Little Barrier Island, in New Zealand, although there are 70 other types of smaller weta found throughout the country.” w/ photos

Tight Rope Wedding

“A bizarre and dangerous wedding. Filmed in Toulouse, France, this couple have decided to get married on a tight rope, high above the ground. There is no net and the vicar climbs up a fireman’s ladder. All very weird and dangerous!” — britishpathe

Juggling Flaming Torches

“Prepare to be amazed, while walking down Henry street in Dublin, I spot this man juggling flaming torches. I found him to be very entertaining, and he seemed to impress nearly all passerby’s. Sure with lot of practice anyone can juggle but this certain individual made it look a little too easy.” — YourStreetPerformer

Birdfish Guitar

Before we tempt you with this truly radical axe we should tell you that it ain’t cheap. In fact the groundbreaking Birdfish Guitar is $11,467 – chicken feed to a bona fide guitar hero but rather excessive for a casual plucker. Then again this is no casual guitar… Built to order by German luthier Ulrich Teuffel and strictly limited edition, this gobsmackingly unconventional guitar has been designed so that its fundamental elements (tonewoods and pickups) are put together in a modular fashion. This offers unlimited tonal possibilities and makes the guitar infinitely adjustable. And if you don’t believe us, just ask Birdfish converts such as the ZZ Top boys or Kirk Hammett of Metallica.” w/ photos

Top 17 Awesome Sword-And-Sorcery Movies

“With the recent Conan remake, everyone’s minds have turned to the world of sword-and-sorcery, where the muscled and monosyllabic gleefully kill and screw everything that moves, where topless men and women are a fact of life, and where the smallest cut releases blood with the pressure of a firehouse. These 17 movies are all great sword-and-sorcery flicks. They’re all also bad movies, but that’s not the point! Murder, magic and mayhem! Wholesale slaughter! Nipples! It’s sword-and-sorcery!” w/ videos
