The 'Never Say You've Seen It All' Thread

"Site is unavailable to European visitors"

Scary that the internet that was supposed to unite us is now being censored so that people from one country no longer can access info from another.  Maybe the very tiny beginnings of a descent into conflict between US and EU?

Artist Helena Hauss has done a series of weapons for her Ceramics ist Krieg project. Here is an example. Most of the items are Medieval.

Things sometimes aren't as they appear to be.

To properly appreciate the immensity of Texas, youy need something to which to compare it!

It also goes a long way towards expressing the extent to which Europe has been divided into lots of really small countries claiming some degree of sovereignty. To get an even better idea, take a look at EU2 some time where there is a plethora of duchies and baronies and other assorted ganglands.

There's a KS for something called Power Up 4.0 which is a drop in unit (originally for paper planes) which combines navigation, flight control and propulsion--all run from a smart phone. Add-ons include landing gear and wing leading edge LEDs. It's so well designed you can fly a leaf of lettuce. It's not pretty to watch, but think of what has to happen to fly at all with such a contraption. Vid's on FB but links to KS, so you'll need to find that for yourself.

Don't know how many of you will be able to see this video of a ship anchoring gone disastrously awry.

That's what happens when you ride the brakes like an old grand-lady.

I spent a whole day looking at 'lost anchor chain' videos and such on YouTube.

Lots of fun.

There's also 'The Gallery of Transport Loss' over here:

You can get your shipwreck itch scratched, sadly the website hasn't been updated since December 2012, but everything should still work. Here's an example video from the final entry.

 

Happy hunting.

How a female can find her dom--or at least a potential one. Or should a dom looking for a sub wear these? Either way, it's clever and a real conversation starter. Or apoplexy inducer!

Great and loud were the lamentations of its former denizens.

The Japanese are notorious for coming up with twisted games, but what if your sales force wasn't producing? "Okay, people, the two worst producers every month will be playing this! And , yes, that's a Madagascar hissing cockroach. Loser eats it." People have had to do exactly that on "Fear Factor."

Have long been fascinated by automatic industrial machinery. Believe these days there's also spot welding employed once the link has been formed.

"You look amazing!" has been so overused it's become positively trite, but get a load of this hairdo. It's truly wearable art and every bit as ephemeral as a Tibetan mandala.

Ingenious idea superbly realized.

This is fetish attire, but I can't help think she's the wife of an important commander of those Sith Trooper units in one of the later Star Wars films. What do you think?

You have to be tough to be on the latex team, especially in summer. Just look at the cheerleader outfit!

Nothing quite like a vigorous treadmill workout--barefoot and with Lego™ added! Long ago I stepped on a single 8 block barefoot. Ow!!! Can't begin to imagine how bad this insanity hurts. Nor do I know how that person is even standing, still less running, after even the first few.

This is a kink shoot, but I prefer to think of it as being a test launch from a mobile rocket system of a very poor terrorist group. Don't try this at home!

The brief was to depict the Sword of Damocles, but there were no swords to be had. Needs must improvise! Rigging this must've been quite the experience.

Scenes with knives terrify me from a safety aspect. One sneeze or a cough on either end and disaster ensues. That's a real knife in the image.

General Jack Ripper,

Ref the locomotive, at least a) the drop was short and b) it somehow stayed right side up. Would imagine fixing all that impact damage to the locomotive is going to cost some fairly serious money. Shall have to go look at the link you gave.

Since on occasion I've been rightly accused of being prolix and overly thorough, I thought this incisive cartoon would be apt. It's so funny people just kept building on it in the FB thread.

This is a first for me in terms of a category classified information. The military K9 prominently featured and wounded in a high profile afterwards SOF raid has a classified name. Presume this is to prevent hostiles from targeting the dog, but still. Guess it should be viewed as an extension of PERSEC. This isn't quite as crazy as it sounds, when you consider that killing a police K9 in some states bears exactly the same legal penalty as killing a cop.

Get a load of this. It's an incredible handheld printer which can print on almost anything. Crowdfunding goal was USD 10,000, but with twelve days left, they've raised almost 2.5 million dollars!
