voilapourquoijesuisfauche Les coulisses du French Streaker à Murrayfield (Ecosse) C’est bien connu, l’élégance à la française s’exporte encore et toujours à l’étranger. Loin des paillettes et des podiums parisiens, un jeune français a décidé d’en témoigner pendant le dernier Ecosse-France, en dévoilant sa nouvelle collection « spéciale crise économique ». Dans un stade de Murrayfield comble pour l’occasion, notre jeune français, encouragé par ses impresarios, profite d’un arrêt de jeu pour réaliser un magnifique « tombé de slip » avant de s’élancer sur la pelouse. Uniquement paré du drapeau bleu-blanc-rouge, c’est par un superbe déhanché qu’il réussit à porter haut les couleurs de la France. Finalement emmené par des hommes fluorescents dont la classe vestimentaire n’est apparemment pas la préoccupation première, il est contraint de quitter la scène, sous les flashs des photographes et l’ovation du public. Ah oui, et pour finir amis écossais, nous ne mettons peut être pas de kilt en France, mais ce qui est sûr c’est que nous ne portons rien dessous ! Rémi Lestang

Porsche's First Car Built in 1898 Was Electric! When Porsche fans think back to the history of the brand that is responsible for the iconic 911, most of us think the brand came to life in 1948 and in many ways it did. But long before the 911 was born, Porsche’s founder Ferdinand Porsche built the electric Porsche P1 in 1898. The P1 was built as part of a partnership between Ferdinand Porsche and K.K. Hofwagenfabrik Jacob Lohner & Company and was officially known as the “Egger-Lohner electric vehicle, C.2 Phaeton model.” At first glance, the P1 one looks like a simple horse drawn carriage, but Ferdinand Porsche, who was responsible for the design, endowed the archaic design with technology that was cutting edge at the time. The P1 featured a 286 pound electric motor that only generated three horsepower at most times, but for short periods it could send five horsepower to the wheels in an overloading mode. Designed and built in 1898, the P1 was parked in a warehouse in 1902 and left untouched for the last 100 years. + Porsche

Cardsharp4: natural metal credit card folding knife Cardsharp4 new metal knife: CNC machined from a wafer thin strip of ultralight aluminum (including natural grey anodising), Cardsharp4 has ultimate robustness and strength. New construction with two-stage, child-proof Zytel® safety lock helps prevent accidental opening and gives the knife excellent rigidity in both open and closed positions. The new improved Zytel® rivet secures the blade to the body. Just three ingenious folding operations turn the card into an elegant pocket utility tool.

Sailing stones Sailing stones, sliding rocks, and moving rocks all refer to a geological phenomenon where rocks move and inscribe long tracks along a smooth valley floor without human or animal intervention. Tracks from these sliding rocks have been observed and studied in various locations, including Little Bonnie Claire Playa in Nevada,[1] and most notably Racetrack Playa, Death Valley National Park, California, where the number and length of tracks are notable. At Racetrack Playa, these tracks have been studied since the early 1900s, yet the origins of stone movement are not confirmed[2] and remain the subject of research for which several hypotheses[3] exist. The stones move only every two or three years and most tracks develop over three or four years. Trails differ in both direction and length. Description[edit] Tracks are sometimes non-linear. The Racetrack’s stones speckle the playa floor, predominately in the southern portion. And in some hypotheses: ice floes Research history[edit] See also[edit]

Omni directional, Airtrax Home Tiny Inconspicuous Handcuff Key | Easy-to-Attach | Covert | USA Made The 6 Creepiest Places on Earth It doesn't matter whether or not you believe in ghosts, there are some places in which none of us would want to spend a night. These places have well earned their reputations as being so creepy, tragic or mysterious (or all three) that they definitely qualify as "haunted." Places like... Aokigahara is a woodland at the base of Mount Fuji in Japan that makes The Blair Witch Project forest look like Winnie the Pooh's Hundred Acre Wood. What Niagara Falls is to weddings, Aokigahara is to suicide. More than 500 fucking people have taken their own lives in Aokigahara since the 1950s. The trend has supposedly started after Seicho Matsumoto published his novel Kuroi Kaiju (Black Sea of Trees) where two of his characters commit suicide there. Also skulls. Besides bodies and homemade nooses, the area is littered with signs displaying such uplifting messages like "Life is a precious thing! "If you commit suicide here, bears will poop on your corpse."
