See-through Pontiac

See-through Pontiac: "


General Motors built two or possibly three transparent automobiles to display at the New York World’s Fair of 1939-1940. The Pontiac Deluxe seven-window touring sedan (B-body) from that project is going up for sale. In between, it’s been on tour all over the country, displayed at the Smithsonian, and owned by a private citizen. Get more details on this car at Hemmings Blog. -via Evil Mad Linkblog

Ears looking at you

Ears looking at you: "It has had several facelifts over the past twenty-two years and has been used in countless advertising campaigns (my favorite utilizes it at a landing platform for an X-Wing in a Star Wars Weekends promotion). It was, for a time, the park icon for the park when it was known as Disney-MGM Studios. It stands 130 feet tall, with a pair of mouse ears that weigh 5,000 pounds apiece and a hat size of 342 and 3/8. And still, there is nothing quite like the original incarnation of the Earffel Tower.

If you're a geologist or geophysicist and you don't introduce yourself by saying your name, then gesturing downward and saying "... and I study that", I don't know what you're doing with your life.

Elephants Assist in Tornado Clean-Up


A Picadilly Circus show was canceled in Joplin, MO following the tornado that recently ravaged the city. Rather than packing up and moving out of town, the circus enlisted the help of its largest performers to help with the clean-up. A volunteer captured this clip of an elephant dragging a car closer to the street so it could be hauled away.

The Unimog Is The Largest Lego Technic Set Ever Sold



Lego is celebrating the 60th anniversary of the Mercedes-Benz Unimog (an impossibly gigantic truck generally found in Europe and used for mostly military and construction applications) by offering the largest Tecnnic set ever sold.

The highly detailed model will be 1:12.5 scale and include over 2000 pieces. It will feature a pneumatically operated crane with a gripper arm that rotates a full 360-degrees, as well as a front winch and an optional snow plow.

Look for it to drop in August for around $250.

Rare Blue Lobster


Only one in four million lobsters is blue, a genetic mutation in coloring that makes for an interesting-looking creature. This blue lobster was caught Wednesday off the shores of Prince Edward Island, the only one since 2009. Blair Doucette, the fisherman who nabbed the beauty, says he has never caught a blue lobster in his 30 years of fishing. He is considering donating the lobster to a local aquarium.
