An artist has created a menagerie of enormous animals – made entirely of scaffolding. Ben Long, 33, spent months in Lancaster building a larger-than-life dog, stag and horse out of metal poles and screws. The sculptures, which measure an incredible 30ft high, each took three weeks to build using a scaffolding spanner and a further six months to perfect. Really incredible, huh~[ via dailymail.co.uk ]
Experience is a good teacher they say and designer Junjie Piao learnt a good lesson with it. A stint in chopping celery sticks left him frustrated, especially when it was time to scoop and transfer them to a bowl. He decided to “design something to make this process easier without disturbing slicing.” Thus was born Pour-Smart, an L-shaped plastic piece and a bar of strong magnet. The contraption allows you to chop and easily transfer food from the cutting board to a bowl. Simple and very useful is my verdict!

Why yes, officer, that is a wood-burning stove in my glove box~
It’s hard to imagine what led Pascal Prokop to install a wood-burning stove in his 1990 Volvo 240 station wagon. Though we’re safe to say that the trend won’t catch like wildfire. Prokob built and installed the wood-fired stove himself and got an operating permit from the Swiss technical inspection authority. And you thought old Volvo station wagons weren’t hot…
