Honda’s Top Gear lawnmover does 130mph – Stig goes domestic

How cool is that:

The vehicle, made by Honda for Top Gear magazine, goes from 0-60mph (95km/h) in roughly four seconds.

The team behind it may attempt to have an official go at the lawnmower speed record, which stands at 96.5mph.

In a test run, Top Gear magazine clocked “just over 100mph” on the back straight of the Circuit de Charade testing course in France.

The lawnmower was also put through its paces by Top Gear’s “the Stig”.

The British Lawn Mower Racing Association said Top Gear’s mower would not be able to compete in July’s World Championships because of strict limits on the number of modifications entrants can make to their bodies, lol.

What do we really know about this tablet? All I see is tech savy writers try to outwit each other in insignificant knowledge and speculations about the Kindle Fire tablet.

and

The games that made me

Just read this exercept:

For example:

  • I leaned patience from rock-hard games like Impossible Mission, Ghosts ‘n Goblins and Thrust (and from waiting for them to load via cassette).
  • I learned how to spell from text adventures like Zork, The Hobbit and Hitchhikers’ Guide to the Galaxy.
  • I learned social skills from multi-player games like Gauntlet, Pitstop 2 and Ballblazer.
  • I developed a love of all sports from simulations like Leaderboard, International Soccer and Summer Games
  • I learned to appreciate exotic animals from Jeff Minter’s Attack of the Mutant Camels, Metagalactic Llamas Battle at the Edge of Time and Sheep in Space.
  • I learned how to think strategically and quickly adapt to changing fortunes from Archon, Boulderdash and Super Pipeline 2.
  • And I learned the universe was a really, really big place from Elite.

Breast augmentation on strangers in streets with Boob Job app for iPhone

BoobJob app for iPhone smartphone with breast augmentation

Boob Job app for iPhone smartphone with breast augmentation

Breast augmentation is expensive and time-consuming — and can’t just be done to strangers on the street. So what are you supposed to do if you really want to see how someone would look with a slightly larger chest? Reach for your iPhone, of course!

 

With an iPhone app appropriately named Boob Job you can give anyone a little lift and boost.

All you need to do is install the app — you can get it from the Apple App Store for a dollar — and find or take a photo of your lucky patient. Then you’ll just swipe, drag, and pinch your fingers against your iPhone’s screen a few times and — tada! — breast augmentation surgery complete.

I decided to try out the app on fellow blogger Whitson Gordon who — while clever and delightfully witty — isn’t exactly in possession of breasts that would make Pamela Anderson envious. I snatched a photo off his Facebook page, opened it in the Boob Job app, dragged some circles onto his chest, and resized them appropriately. Then I tapped some vaguely marked buttons on the next screen to increase the selected parts and add a little highlight along the newly created curves.

You can see Whitson’s pre-virtual-surgery and post-virtual-surgery photos above. The final result won’t tempt any Victoria’s Secret modeling scouts, but it makes for a great laugh.

Dog rescued from the ocean in Japan after 3 weeks adrift

A dog which was rescued at sea off the coast of Kesennuma, Japan, on Friday after being found drifting on a roof is believed to have survived for three weeks after being washed away by the killer tsunami triggered by the March 11 earthquake. Coast guard members aboard a helicopter involved in the day’s search for those still missing after the disaster found the dog on the roof drifting along some 1.8 kilometres off Kesennuma, Miyagi Prefecture. It took several hours to catch the dog and bring him to the safety of a coastguard vessel. The dog’s collar has no clues about the owner such as address and contact numbers.
