1939 Rolls-Royce Phantom III Cabriolet
1939 Rolls-Royce Phantom III Cabriolet In a world of plastic cars with hybrid heartbeats, the joy of driving is a dying art. This 1939 Rolls-Royce Phantom III “Vutotal” Cabriolet by Labourdette recalls an era when driving was always an artful experience. Yet this is not your standard Rolls Royce Phantom III, this is the result of a complete rebuild by the Parisian designer Henri Labourdette. Labourdette tore the Phantom III down to the bones, adorning its body with gold plating and brass fixtures on a shape that stretched sensually from bumper to bumper. Related:  Cars

Mercedes Rolls Out Invisible Car When Mercedes wanted to promote its new fuel cell vehicle, instead of placing it squarely in front of everyone in the world, the company decided to make the car invisible. We have video. In this clever publicity stunt, Mercedes wanted to emphasize that its F-Cell vehicle has no exhaust emissions, making it virtually invisible to the environment. We saw a Halloween costume like this once. Mercedes is doing basically the same trick. Mercedes says its hydrogen-powered drive system is "ready for series production," but other reports have its commercialization set for 2014. Practicality aside, we applaud Mercedes and its efforts to create a vehicle with zero emissions and less impact on the environment, and admire the lengths to which these artists went to bring home that point. By the way, with all the ultra-cool cars in the Mercedes stable, why did the company pick a minivan for this showy demo?

Gateway to Ecstasy: How to Give a Tantric Lingam Massage In Tantra, the penis is called the Lingam, which in Sanskrit can be translated as "Wand of Light." A Lingam massage is a massage of the male genitals using a large variety of strokes and grips. The goals of the Lingam massage are to honor your man's Lingam and to help him to expand his ability to receive pleasure. The setting and your attitude are what make a Lingam massage a special experience for your man. Next, have him lie face down and begin giving him a full body massage. Then, as a show of respect for his male power, ask permission to touch his Lingam. Next, massage above the Lingam, on the pubic bone. From his testicles, move your hand down to massage his perineum, sometimes called the "sacred spot." Finally, place your hand on his Lingam. If, at any point, your man seems close to ejaculation, slow your movements to reduce stimulation and let him cool down before beginning again.

2012 Aston Martin Virage Coupe 2012 Aston Martin Virage Coupe Aston Martin has taken the virtual wraps off of its 2012 Aston Martin Virage Coupe, a roadster they’ll be revealing in the flesh at the Geneva Motor Show this week. The Aston Martin Virage is a new line for the mark, starring a mixed feature set between the existing DB9 and the DBS. The Virage is powered by a 6.0-liter V12 heartbeat which thumps out 490 horses on the open road. That powerhouse will push the new Virage to 60mph in four-and-a-half seconds, on its way to a top end of 186 mph. The design of the new Aston Martin Virage feels familiar at first glance. The 2012 Aston Martin Virage Coupe is joined by the Virage Volante, a convertible version of the Virage with a similar feature set.

“Condor” Supercomputer Made Of 1,716 PS3s Now Online Supercomputers are expensive to make no matter how you look at it. But if you use a whole bunch of PS3s, you can save over 10x the cost compared to this guy. The Condor project is a supercomputer made up of 1,716 PS3s for the Air Force’s image processing tasks and is considered one of the top forty fastest computers in the world. Its big task involves monitoring 15 square miles 24/7, but not in the way you think. Because the PS3 is really good at image processing, the Air Force hopes it will solve their problem of processing images from all their recent aerial photo gathering. With all the satellites they have, it has become pretty easy to snap loads of photos, but figuring what parts are important is difficult. What’s crazy about Condor is that users will be able to move cameras around like you’re playing Starcraft. Let’s hope that Condor is used for military analysis and not tuning in on our daily activities. [via Hot Hardware; image credit: John Berry / The Post-Standard]
