What do you do with OLD Bumper Cars?WHO KNEW?
Yes, you read that right; these little beasties are street legal. They run on either Kawasaki or Honda motorcycle engines and co-opt vintage bumper car bodies into the most awesome form of mini-car we've seen in too long.
There are seven of these little monsters floating around California , and they're all the creation of one man,Tom Wright, a builder in the outskirts of San Diego who figured the leftovers of the Long Beach Pike amusement park needed a more dignified end than the trash heap. They were originally powered by two cylinder Harley Davidson Motorcycle engines but they rattled like heck because of the two cylinder vibration and Tom replaces them with four cylinder Honda or Kawasaki 750's and a couple have been measured as capable of 160 MPH, which is terrifyingly fast in machines with such a short wheelbase. By the way, they are almost indestructible in accidents

Kill ONLY when you are hungry
Photographer Michel Denis-Huot, who captured these amazing pictures on safari in Kenya's Masai Mara in October last year,
said he was astounded by what he saw: "These three brothers (cheetahs) have been living together since they left their mother at about 18 months old,' he said.
'On the morning we saw them, they seemed not to be hungry, walking quickly but stopping sometimes to play together.
'At one point, they met a group of impala who ran away. But one youngster was not quick enough and the brothers caught it easily'." These extraordinary scenes followed.
See... We CAN all get along!!!
and then they just walked away without hurting him..........
Life is short... forgive quickly, love truly, laugh uncontrollably...and never regret anything that made you smile
STREET GANGS IN CALGARY , ALBERTAIt's gangs like these that the people of Calgary have to put up with..A bit different from the problems in other cities...It proves that every City has their own "unique" gang problems. They
Roam the streets and yards night and day.They hang out in even the best neighborhoods!..and you CANNOT (legally) stop them.
Those are some lawn ornaments!!!
AREN'T THEY MAGNIFICENT !!!!???
"Did you lose a cat?"
This is probably the most amazing picture of 2012!!!
"Did you lose a cat?"
You’ve probably seen this but
THE STORMThey were together in the House.Just the two of them.It was a cold, dark, stormy night. The storm had come quickly
and each time the thunder boomed he watched her jump.She looked across the room and admired his strong appearance...andwished that he would take her in his arms, comfort her and protect herfrom the storm.Suddenly, with a pop, the power went out..... She screamed...He raced to the sofa where she was cowering.He didn't hesitate to pull her into his arms.He knew this was a forbidden union andexpected her to pull back.
He was surprised when she didn't resist but instead clung to him.The storm raged on...They knew it was wrong...Their families would never understand... So consumed werethey in their FEAR that they heard no openingof doors...just the faint click of a camera.....
Have you smiled today?
YES, YOU'VE BEEN HAD........NOW GET SOMEONE ELSE

China's newest tourist attraction... a glass-bottomed walkway around the cliff....
Brave tourists looking to test their nerves have flocked to China to walk across a dazzling glass bridge suspended from the cliff.
The oriental Skywalk is situated 4,700 ft above sea level on the side of the Tianmen Mountain in Zhangjiajie , China .
In order to keep the glass path clean, tourists are asked to put on shoe covers before passing.
Dazzling: A glass path suspended on a cliff face has been built on the side of the Tianmen Mountain in China
Don't look down: A brave tourist walks along the glass path that was built of the side of a cliff 4,700 ft above sea level on Tianmen Mountain in Zhangjiajie , ChinaThe 200 ft long bridge joins the west cliff at the Yunmeng Fairy Summit, the summit of Tianmen Mountain and Zhang Jiajie.
The pathway, built earlier in the summer echoes the glass-bottomed walkway at the Grand Canyon in the U.S.
The 70 ft bridge is 4,000 ft above the natural wonder and allows tourists to look through 2.5 in of crystal-clear glass to the Canyon floor below.
The Tianmen mountain, literally translated as Heavenly Gate Mountain is so called because of a huge natural cave that occurs halfway up to the summit.
Stunning: The skywalk offers breathtaking views across the Hunan Province for those brave enough to attempt to cross the bridgeSituated in the Hunan Province, Its highest peak is around 5,000 ft above sea level and it is home to a wealth of rare species of plants
A four-mile-long cable car was constructed in the park, which is said to be the longest of the same type in the world.
The futuristic glass walkway is a marked upgrade from another sky high mountain walkway located in the same province.
Not so high spec: Workers built a 3 ft-wide plank road on the side of Shifou Mountain , in Hunan Province , China earlier this year.The Shifou Mountain located 82 miles away in Hunan Province offers sightseers a 3ft-wide road made of wooden planks thousands of feet high.
When finished the 'road' - which is the width of a dinner table - will stretch for 1.8 miles making it China 's longest sightseeing path.

When you drink whiskey over ice, it can give you heart problems.
When you drink gin over ice, it can give you brain problems.
Apparently, ice is really bad for you.

How the world works lately...
If you smoke three packs a day
If a man cuts his finger off while
Slicing salami at work,
He blames the restaurant.
For 40 years and die of lung cancer,
Your family blames the
Tobacco company. If your neighbor crashes
Into a tree while driving home drunk,
He blames the bartender. If your grandchildren are
If your friend is shot by a
Brats without manners,
You blame television.
You blame the gun manufacturer..
And if a crazed person breaks
Into the cockpit and
Tries to kill the pilot at 35,000 feet,
And the passengers
Kill him instead,
The mother of the crazed deceased
Blames the airline. I must have lived too long to
Understand the world
As it is anymore. So, if I die while my OLD WRINKLED ASS
Is parked in front of this computer,
I want all of you to
Blame Bill Gates .
Have a nice day!
