4 Story Street Mural of Boy Brushing His Teeth - Osto, Norway

Street artists Sainer and Bezt of  The Etam Cru painted this charming picture of a young boy brushing his teeth and playing in the water with a boat and Godzilla by the spigot for the Urban Samtidskunst in Oslo, Norway.

The pictures below give you an idea of scale for this monumental task.  To reach the boy's mouth, a cherry picker crane was used.

Giant Octopus Kite

Well here is something that you would take a second look at if you saw it in the sky and a 24foot Octopus isn't something you would normally see.

Actually, it is a kite that you can purchase for around $50 on Amazon or Ebay.

From my kite flying days long ago, I know you would need a windy day and a large open space free of trees and power lines, like a large park or open field.

Time Lapse Video of building Life-Size Fort Mustang for Legoland Florida

What a fun job this would be!

This replica of a 1964 Mustang was built to go on display at Legoland in Florida in the Fall.


  • 1,200 hours to make
  • 194,900 Lego and Duplo Bricks 
  • 15 Feet Long, 4feet tall and nearly 6 feet wide
  • Weighs 1712
  • Working headlights, tail lights and sound effect
It doesn't indicate how many people it took to make, but from the time-lapse video, it looks like around a dozen at any given time.  

I hope that after it finishes it run at Legoland they put it on tour to go to Science Museums as it would be a great way inspire children to learn math and computers and it would have taken quite a bit of both to plan this out,

Horse Riding Excerciser

This Korean infomercial for a horse riding exerciser is a little something different.   I wonder what the part with the older couple was about.

A friend of mine posted that she wanted a candle like the above for her next birthday cake.  

As you can see from the video, you might want to have a fire extinguisher handy as it shoots up flames right before the petals open up and it plays "Happy Birthday" but it is a fun and impressive display. The site indicated it has been featured on CNN and The Food Network.

From the link in the video,  they have a pack of three for sale for $29.99 plus free shipping at Lotus Candles in red, blue and yellow.  I also checked and there is a store,  MazaaShop, that has a similar product in pink, blue, yellow, red and white ranging from $5.26 to $11.90 and I am sure there are other places while like products are available.
