Tooth pic Art sculptures to scale

Meet Stan Munro, a 38-year-old man from Syracuse, New York who has been turning toothpicks into fantastic works of art. Stan has been using toothpicks for his art since his fifth year in school and has turned that passion into his profession.

 

This exhibit has taken him 6 years to complete, using over 6 million toothpicks and 170 liters of glue. Stan creates all his sculptures to scale and then signs and dedicates each one to his wife, Suzi.

The Card Stacker

Don’t Sneeze Or Slam The Door ….

Have you ever seen “a house of cards” that didn’t collapse?
Well, here it is…

Bryan Berg is a professional “card stacker” who builds houses of cards on a very large scale.
Trained as an architect, Bryan Berg is the only known person to make living building structures with freestanding playing cards.

He uses no tape, glue, or tricks, and his method has been tested to support 660 lbs. Per square foot.

Berg has stacked cards for corporate special events, public relations campaigns, and science and children’s museums in many U.S. Cities, Canada, Europe and Asia.

Berg’s clients have included Walt Disney World, a Lexus commercial, Procter & Gamble, American major league baseball and hockey, and the San Francisco Opera among others.
He also participated in a music video by The Bravery, playing a lonely man who builds a fantasy world out of cards.

In 2004, Guinness created a record category for World’s Largest House of Freestanding Playing Cards to recognize a project Berg built for Walt Disney World, a replica of Cinderella’s Castle.

In 2010, the record was renewed by him using 4051 sets of cards, over 218,000 cards, and built in 44 days, a replica of the Venetian Macao.

Why is this not being used everywhere?

Amazing information about a marvelous break-through in technology!!!

Another example of Japanese ingenuity and perseverance!

A GERMAN WONDERLAND

AMAZING…

There have been little clips about this place for the past few years, it is still not finished but is growing to that conclusion as they will soon run out of space.  A short review…. it was started by two brothers as a place to show their hobby, it started growing by leaps & bounds.

 

Soon they were joined by other ‘Model Railroad Clubs’ and other craftsmen.  Some were electricians, model makers, carpenters, computer programmers, their wives would stop by to see what they were doing and usually bring them a lunch.  One thing led to another, 3 of the ladies had worked at a bakery,  several visitors would ask if they had a snack bar. The idea was planted, some of the carpenters came and built a nice restaurant area for the bakery and a kitchen too. If the fresh coffee smell didn’t get you then the bakery definitely would.  This was about 5 years ago. One of the Breweries came and furnished all of the tables and chairs, serving counter, etc.  Their latest finished area is the airport.  Planes look like they are flying and landing.

A Chocolate Lover’s Dream

Has set a new Guinness World Record as the longest chocolate structure in the world.

The sculpture, on display at the busy Brussels South station, is 112-feet (34.05 meters) long and weighs over 2,755 pounds (1250 kilos).

Maltese chocolate artist Andrew Farrugia spent over 700 hours constructing the masterpiece.

He said he came up with the idea of the train last year after visiting the Belgian Chocolate Festival in Bruge:  “I had this idea for a while and I said what do you think if we do this realisation of a long chocolate train, you know, because a train you can make it as long as you like.

“Actually it was going to be much smaller than it was, but I kept on adding another wagon, and another wagon, and it’s the size it is today.”

Farrugia had previously built a smaller train of 12 feet for an event in Malta, which he said gave him insight about how to build this much larger version.

There are two parts to the train. The first seven wagons are modelled after the new Belgian trains, and the rest of the train is modelled after the old train wagons, including a wagon with a bar and restaurant on board.

Three days before the event, Farrugia transported the chocolate train by truck in 25 wooden boxes from Malta to Belgium .

Farrugia said the train incurred considerable damage during the drive and several of the train’s walls had completely collapsed.

Luckily, with hardwork and little sleep, the chocolate artist was able to fix all the damages before presenting the train to the public on Monday.

After measuring the length of the train and confirming no material other than chocolate was used,

officials from the Guinness Book of World Records added a new category to the collection of world records and declared the train to be the longest chocolate structure in the world.

ARTISTS trucks painting

alk about traffic stoppers?!

THE GERMAN ARTISTS ARE AT IT AGAIN…. DISPLAYING THEIR
GENIUS AND TALENTS IN THE GERMAN TRUCKING INDUSTRY!

Here are 7 pictures of German trucks whose trailers are decorated to look like the sides are missing and the products they are hauling are painted on the sides and back.
The first one is of a bottle of beer and looks so real, like it is coming out the side of the trailer…



The second is of canvas tote bag.



The third is of Pepsi cases and they are all stacked on the ceiling, and the bottom of the trailer is empty…


The fourth is of another truck with the windshield facing the back and there has been a driver painted in the driver’s seat looking back over his shoulder to appear like he is driving backwards. (Now this one is just plain scary, even when the German reads ‘On the wrong way?’)



The fifth one is of an aquarium with fish swimming in it.



The sixth one is of a bookshelf with books lined up in it and a post-it-note with an advertisement on it, probably for the company that sells the books.



The last one is for Pringles-Hot & Spicy.
The ‘inside’ of the trailer has the appearance of having been through a fire.
