SExpand Click to viewWhere do 747s go when they die? In this particular case: Malibu, to become a luxury home. And that's not just a flight of fancy—the construction is on pace to be completed later this year.

SExpand The crushing sadness of living a life of solitude is a little easier to deal with knowing there are furniture designers creating pieces specifically for single souls.

An Upside Down Helicopter Makes For One Bad-Ass Ceiling Fan Wow. We've seen aviation-inspired ceiling fans before, but they're usually just the propeller from an old WWII-era fighter plane.

And with each blade measuring about 28 inches in length, it's sure to cool down a room in no time, and kick up quite a dust storm if you haven't gotten around to spring cleaning.
