Sheep-Powered Taxi?

A Chinese entrepreneur has put his own stamp on the traditional rickshaw and hired his strongest sheep to do his grueling dirty work. It may not be the quickest ride in town, but Wen Fey has impressed locals in Tianjin, northern China, with his novel sheep-powered trailer. Farmer Wen gave Yangyang his first shot at stardom when he noticed how strong he was compared to the other rams in the herd. ‘He is incredibly powerful and can pull more than his own weight with ease but I don’t let him carry anyone too heavy,’ said Wen. But don’t deceived by little Yangyang’s pretty headgear – he is much feistier than he looks, says Wen. ‘No-one would dare try to skip the fare,’ he said. ‘I’d just take his harness off and he’d butt them into the middle of next week.” w/ photo

Electric Camper Bicycle Car

“…Electric Camper Car is made from a combination of plywood, glass, fiberglass, expoxy resin, bicycle parts and powered by an electric motor. ‘Double Take” may have been a proper name for his electric car since I’m sure his vehicle gets quite a few second looks while going down the road. The Golden Gate would make a nice shelter to park and stay in for a couple of days while enjoying a little surfing, camping, or whatever else is your cup of tea.” w/ photos

Top 10 Songs That Are Impossible To Understand

“Some of us go our whole lives without knowing the real lyrics to a song. Often we don’t even realize that the lyrics we’ve been belting at the top of our lungs aren’t correct — until we embarrass ourselves at karaoke. Some bands, though, seem to be asking for their lyrics to be misheard or not heard at all. Vocal styling, a blistering tempo, and using bizarre word choices all contribute to these tunes and our difficulty understanding anything they’re trying to say.” w/ videos
