STUPID THINGS, NONSENSE STUFF

  • Surfing on the net, I found out these amazing photographs which capture the human foolishness. Here we are some examples:

  • In this first photograph, we can see an inusual traffic sign. It’s warn us to be careful about its sharp edges so don’t touch the edges. In this case I suppose the person who think up this signal was capturing the attention of the absentminded driver or maybe, the signal can tell us: Stop, don’t break rules, stick the rules because the bridge is out ahead and you can’t use the car.

  • On the other hand, the next photograph show us a stressful road in Almeria, Spain. These traffic signal only can be followed by an expert, careful person with enough reflexes. Skills like the use of engaging the clutch and the brake are very important. In fact, you only have half second to slow down from 70 km/h to 60km/h. If you get this premise, congratulations because you’re the number one. At the bottom of the photo, you can make out a jeep, but probably,  is a camouflaged car. The photograph was taken at latest of the month when it’s more necessary to collect money from fines. The car is belongs to “Guardia Civil”, one of the typical traffic policeman in Spain. I don’t know if Guardia Civil has a correct translation to English.

THE PERFECT HONKER

It’s safe to say that many people are unhappy with their noses. Especially since we’re constantly bombarded with cosmetically perfected versions on television and in the media.This straight-outta-Japan gadget aims to straighten crooked honkers everywhere. Available quite widely, it’s called  (in self-explanatory fashion) the Beauty Lift High Nose. Not only does it cover half your face like some complex surgical device, it even has electric vibrations buzzing out of it to make your adenoids that much firmer (flabby adenoids are so 2010). No word on whether you’ll actually see results, but if you’re willing to go the distance to get your hands on one, it currently retails at around 6,800 JPY (about $83). $83

Quirky Inventions

A mill which turns air into water

By Ana Marco

In Sainte-Tule, Fance, Marc Parent has invented an air mill which is able to satisfy the planet needs that nowadays indian and american people wish to acquire. “This doessn’t solve all the world problems but at least, the water won’t be one of them” says the inventor.

He has invented an ecological system which turns air into drinkable water. Use the atmospheric water is an old dream which some researchers have been working without reach it yet. In his workshop this “inventor” 43 years old did research for 10 years to obtain an eolic prototype, currently running perfectly.

Air humidity condense, the mast works as a water stock and at the end of the circuit some particle filters turns it drinkable. Just open the tap to serve the water, the Australia horrible droughts are over, disease caused by stagnant waters are defeated, the kilometres under African unbearable sun to find water are finished.

“When I had the idea was to help everybody else” Marc Parent has had a simple idea which simple and tecnichly can revolutionitze the world. However, at the beginning people took me as a crazy man. I was well ahead of my time, it was difficult to persuade them. In 1997 he works in the French Antilles at the lobster hatcheries and he draws the first air to water mill drafts, since then the famous mill produces between 70 to 200 litres of water a day depends on it is located.

The next version,the 2010 version planned to produce 1000 litres a day. The higher the mill is the more water produce. With a 50 metres mast we can collect 25.000 litres daily.

Contacted by big companies, Marc Parent is waiting today answers of American and Indian insdustries to mass-produce his invention and go down in costs. “With my system, we can assure the vital minimum without wind and in isolated places”. A little portable model ¨(of 800 litres a day) with no assembly crane and it can be connect to a fotovoltaic panels, electric lines or a generator can make water withourt wind neither sun. His extraordinary mill “2 in 1! produces and also watts. When we have a dry wind during the day and wet at night we can use it to have water during the day and electricity at night. Incredible but true! Thanks to his inventions, an energetic evolution is coming. Water it isn’t anymore a limited product.
