Next year it will be 150 years since the Matterhorn was first climbed. The photo shoot and ad campaign will celebrate this anniversary. You can see in the first pic climbers with torches who marked the path taken for the mountain’s first ascent.

The rest of the photos are really amazing too. Via Phographer

Air Cannon made from water bucket

Ellen DeGeneres and Steve show off this awesome air cannon that anybody can make at home using a shower curtain and a water bucket.

Check out the way they add smoke to it and mow down the audience. Amazing.

Let’s hope he finds enough fuel to keep him going in the afterlife. Who knows, one day a future race might dig him up and bring him back to life.

The Lamborghini Egoist is truly crazy

This is strictly for those who have an ego the size of Everest and a bank balance to match it. The Lamborghini Egoist is a concept car by the super-car maker and seats just one person. It is a gift to itself to mark Lamborghini’s 50th birthday.

Lamborghini Egoist

Instead of doors, it has a canopy that opens up like the cockpit of a fighter jet. Inside is a steering wheel and display that you always dreamed about as a child.

Lamborghini cockpit

This monster comes with a bright and colorful design that makes it look like an Apache attack helicopter that’s designed for space.

There’s even marking to show you where to step when jumping into the hot seat.

Now don’t tell me you wouldn’t want something this crazy.

Truly the height of opulence and luxury. Too bad you can’t pick up any chicks with it (not literally anyway). via

The Natural Beauty of Burgers

All burgers are created equal. Yet the media has set impossibly high standards for what a normal burger should look like. This results in discrimination and lots of disappointment for everyone.

Real burgers media standards

We need to join hands to stop this cruel practice so that everyone can enjoy delicious burgers without taking appearances into consideration.

Human Transformer Rolls Out

If you thought the hot blond cyborg lady in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen couldn’t possibly be real, think again. Here is another hot cyborg girl who becomes a human transformer. She transforms in front of everybody and prepares to roll out.

Human Transformer roll out

This animated gif might be fun, but it is also painful to watch and I hope she survived without serious injury. Doubt the instructor could do much about it, once it hit. The way it took her head down. Ouch. Looks painful.

So, unless you really are a human Transformer, be very careful when dealing with this much weight. Otherwise, you’ll just end up as a spot on the floor.
