Flexible Video Display Prototype Developed For A Good Time
Here's an article about a flexible video display that Sony is working on. Apparently it is a combination of TFT and electroluminescent display technology. Electroluminescent is a cold light backing which takes very little electricity like you would use on a security vest. Sony is showing off a 2.5 inch flexible prototype display using the technology. Call me when I can actually buy it 5 years from now. I'm putting this one up there with e-ink and the laser laptop keyboard.

Hypocritical BMW Commercial Which Professes Their Innovative Ideas
In this commercial there is a guy who builds machines similar to Leonardo Da Vinci. He calls himself a kinetic sculpture and his sculptures are made of light materials and powered by the wind. The sculptures look like robotic crop sprinklers with wings. The main idea of the commercial is that the only thing standing in the way of innovation is ourselves. This is somewhat hypocritical because the commercial is for the car company BMW. BMW has been making the same cars for the last 50 years. An innovative car company. What a joke.

Mutant Dolphin With Four Flippers Is Captured
Here is an article about a mutant dolphin which was caught recently that had four flippers instead of the 'normal' two. I've circled the two extra flippers in the photo to the right. The flippers look normal but other dolphins don't have them and only a few times previously have four fins been recorded on dolphins. The article claims dolphins use to be land animals millions of years ago and these fins are a left over trait from that. Additionally grow leg buds before they are born but they disappear before birth. So there you have it. Mutant dolphins for the win.
Head over and read the full article plus check out the full size photo of the mutant dolphin for yourself.Read More >>

Thumbelina Dwarf Mini Horse Is Only 17 Inchs Tall In This Photo
Here's a photo of a dwarf mini horse. The people that own the horse breed small horses and this small horse just happens to be a dwarf mini horse. The horse is about five years old now, weighs 60 pounds, and is 17 inchs tall. Normal small horses live about 34 years but because of her size this horse will probably live 17 years. The owners have named the horse Thumbelina according to the article. Apparently the horse prefers to live with the dogs rather than the other horses because they are more her size. They need to get one of these for the miniture guy in Nepal.
Check out the full article plus a large photo of Thumbelina the dwarf mini horse.Read More >>

14 Year Old In Nepal Is Only 20 Inchs Tall And Could Be Smallest Man In World
So this is one of the many photos of the 14 year old from Nepal who is only 20 inchs tall. Apparently he has to wait until he is 18 before he can be submitted to the Guinness Book of World Records for the smallest man in the world record. His name is Khagendra Thapa Magar and this photo has him standing next to his brother who is younger than he is. There are multiple other photos of this guy over on Yahoo as well. Again this just demonstrates that most myths are based on fact such as Tom Thumb who probably did exist and was similar to this guy.
Head over to Yahoo and view the full sized photo of this minature guy plus other photos of him.Read More >>

Blast From The Past Author Predicts The Next 50 Years From 1881 To 1931
Here is a book that I saw over on Google Books which was published in 1881. It is a futurist prediction of the time between 1881 and 1931. The author makes quite a few good preditions but also is a bit over optimistic is some of his other predictions. For example, some of his predictions which did not come to pass were that by 1931 racism would cease to exist, France and Germany would have peacefully resolved their differences over the Rhineland, and the failure of man to be able to fly. Some of the things which he predicted which did happen were the Panama Canal (he names three places where a canal would probably be built), the death of the telegraph and rise of the telephone, prohibition, the fall of Russia to communism around 1900 (though he predicted it would be peaceful), fax machines, and a bunch of other predictions. It's quite a few pages and I think I got to around 40 pages or so.
Head over and check out the book with predictions from 1881 for yourself.Read More >>

Brand New Crazy Huge 14000 Square Feet British Mansion Tour Video
In this video a mansion house called Updown Court is featured. The mansion was built in England and according to the video took five years to complete. The grounds include 58 acres of parks, gardens, and woodland. The inside living space of the house is around 14,000 square feet with a good portion of the house completely covered in a rare marble. There are multiple swimming pool sized pools inside the house and a large hearted pool outside. Additionally it features it's own bowling alley and what looks like house stables (not to mention the staff and guest houses). This place really reminds me of Hearst Castle, the Vanderbilt mansion, Lyndhurst, and the Rockefeller in architecture, design, and uselessness.

Giant Mutant Tomato Grown In Japan Almost Four Inchs Across
A farmer in Japan who has been growing tomatos for 30 years recently grew this giant mutant tomato which he says looks like a Chinese lion mask. Apparently the mutant tomato is about three times normal size at 10 cm across and weighting 150 grams (or about a third of a pound). So is the farm down wind from one of the nuclear blasts from WWII or possibly getting water from one of their nuclear plants. Next thing you know they will clone this mutant tomato and it will be a delicacy in Japan like square watermelons.
Check out the full size photo plus article about this huge mutant tomato after the jump.Read More >>
