Worst Tramp Stamps

|
http://u.nu/2zsr8

Quote from the site:

"Oh, the tramp stamp – is there any tattoo that more perfectly communicates “buy me three drinks and I’ll do anything sexually, and may or may not vomit on your Xbox?” While most tramp stamps are simple tribals or flowers, every once in a while somebody will get one so spectacularly bad that it boggles the mind. The following 20 tramp stamps are the worst we’ve ever seen. All the lasers in the world won’t be enough to erase the shame."

"While some TV shows are devoted to finding a celebrity “twin” among usual people, there are some celebrities who have already found their “clones” among other famous people. Of course, it’s up to you to judge if these celebrities look alike and if their “clone” is good enough."

High Speed Photography Frozen In Time

|
http://u.nu/5icm8

"In a blink of the eye, a lot can happen. A lot of astonishing things happen in a split of a second, but they are moving too quickly for us to see. High speed photography is the art of photographing a rapidly occurring event. Depending on the event to be photographed, methods range from use of ultra-short time flash exposures to producing lots of exposures in a split-second."

"Seemingly frozen in time, a lot of photographers have their own special method doing high speed photography. The usual photographic flash component offers a flash that lasts around a thousandth of a second (a millisecond). But photographic flash component used in high speed photography is so much quicker than this, and it creates a flash of light around a microsecond (a millionth of a second). This let you to freeze time through pictures that are happening tremendously fast."

If Restaurants Were Honest

|

"Lying isn't just an incidental part of the food industry. The first step of any restaurants' business model is finding a way to make their food as cheaply as possible, and the next step is to convince you that step one doesn't exist. We asked you to show us just how different the world would look if the ad campaigns, menus, logos of the world's restaurants were required to tell the truth."

Defaced Money

|
http://u.nu/2jj55

"There are actually a lot more methods of individual expression today as compared to any other period within history.

Whether you select blogs, forums, graffiti, tattoos or even just conventional creative platforms, it is always more fun if it involves a bit of risk.

Money defacing is perhaps the most economical style of risky individual expression – and is as equally unlawful as graffiti."
