Weird Futuristic RV

If the design looks vaguely familiar to you, that’s because it’s based on one of Luigi Colani’s striking truck prototypes. Yes, they look strange, but apparently the design is aerodynamic enough to give a fuel efficiency boost of about 20% along with what I have to assume is a fairly tremendous view of the road. As for the rest of the RV, it’s packed full of the sort of luxury that makes people like me feel guilty and uncomfortable whenever we’re exposed to it, including about 500 square feet of usable area, a master bedroom with a 40″ flat-screen TV and attached spa bathroom, a living space with a couch and table that turns into a bar and lounge at the push of a button, and an ‘integrated vehicle wash system,’ ’cause you don’t want to have to worry about your strange new ride ever looking dirty.” w/ photos

Lightsaber Candlestick

This candlestick is a perfect replica of Darth Vader’s lightsaber – other than the part where it stands up on your dining table and holds a candle instead of emitting a plasma blade. Other than that, it’s identical. It’s made out of cast zinc-alloy and chrome-plated, and does unscrew from the stand – but I don’t recommend waving around a lit lightsaber, unless you want to burn your enemies out of revenge for being left lying in flaming lava on Mustafar. They’re also kind enough to include three tall red candles, which is the only way to go with Darth’s Saber.” w/ photos + video

Can Feet Reveal Secrets Of Your Character?

The eyes may be the window to the soul, but if you really want to know how someone ticks, look to their feet. Foot reading has been practiced in China and India for more than 5,000 years. It stems from the belief that the feet act as a mirror to the rest of the body. Any lumps, calluses or pain in the feet are indicative of problems elsewhere. The arches, for example, are linked to the spine, so a fallen arch will often indicate a back problem. What’s more, it is believed the mind and body are inextricably linked — so physical ailments can be a product of personality. For example, people with fallen arches might have tried to have too much ‘backbone’; their strong, independent spirit (normally indicated by a high arch) may have caused them to take on too much. But is there really any truth in this?” w/ photos
