The Artists Who Make Houses Explode

At first glance, these houses looks like they could have been the victim of a dramatic gas explosion. But the beat-up homes in Houston, Texas, are in fact an elaborate traffic-stopping work of art using the homes’ own wood siding. Artists Dan Havel and Dean Ruck smashed the interior walls of the homes, before nailing the wooden planking at strange angles to complete their project. Featuring several horizontal and vertical vortices which appear to ‘rip’ through the interior of the first house, the designs offer a unique view out of each of the buildings. The front of the house is designed to act as a stage, but is only meant to be a temporary exhibit.” w/ photos

World’s Most Extremely Dangerous Path

Teetering along a crumbling walkway more than 330ft high, a group of intrepid climbers carefully inch their way across what has been dubbed the most dangerous path in the world. And they’re not alone. Adrenaline-junkies have been flocking to southern Spain to experience the 110-year-old El Caminito Del Rey before work begins to refurbish it next year. Companies have now begun offering unofficial tours after a video of a walker tackling the hair-raising trail went viral on YouTube. And you don’t need to be an experienced climber either, the only requirements are that walkers should be at least twelve years old and have a good head for heights. The trail, also known as the King’s Pathway, was originally built in 1905 for workers to travel between two hydroelectric power plants but was closed-off in 2000 after two walkers fell to their deaths.” w/ photos

Schools Banned Ketchup In France?

Tomato ketchup has been banned in primary schools in France – except with French fries – amid concerns that pupils may distance themselves from traditional cuisine. The primary school children will be allowed either ketchup or mayonnaise once a week, but only when they’re having French fries for lunch. Christophe Hebert, chairman of the National Association of Directors of Collective Restaurants, said: ‘Canteens have a public health mission and also an educative mission. ‘We have to ensure that children become familiar with French recipes so that they can hand them down to the following generation. ‘We have to stop children from being able to serve those sauces. Children have a tendency to use them to mask the taste of whatever they are eating,’ he added.” w/ photo

Top 15 Rappers Who Weren’t Always Gangster

“Let’s be honest: being young isn’t really that gangster. Breastfeeding, wearing diapers, soiling yourself, crying uncontrollably — come to think of it, this was pretty much an average day in the life of Ol’ Dirty Bastard. I take it back. Being young is totally gully. With that in mind, not every rapper was representing in their younger days. Should it surprise us that many rappers acquire their gangster posturing as a promotional tool to further their calculated careers? Naw, son. Should it delight us to revel in the juicy details of their hypocrisy? Hellz yeah!” w/ photos
