The World's Most Dangerous Ride

Scroll down for today's pictures & links.

The World's Most Dangerous Ride

Called "The World's Most Dangerous Ride", this crazy vertigo-inducing trail in the Himalayas certainly fits the bill ("Motology"'s Adam Riemann rode this as part of the Himalayan Hero 4500km epic journey). A great addition to our "Dangerous Roads" series.

Futuristic Egg House, spotted in Berlin

We already wrote about such "Flying Saucer" futuristic 1960s-style houses (this one was prefabricated in 1968) in our recent article. Another knock-off of the "Futuro House" (designed by by Matti Suuronen, Finland) was spotted in partly abandoned area of a public park in Berlin:

Some of the most intense abstract art we've seen

Przemyslaw Kucinski, or "Perihelio" on DeviantArt, created these sublime, sophisticated concoctions back in 2001-2006 - but his work can still inspire and amaze:

"Mr. Morrison and his future wife, Lu, used to toss a tin cake pan on the beach in California. The idea grew as Mr Morrison considered ways to make the cake pans fly better and after serving as a pilot in World War II, Mr Morrison began manufacturing his flying discs in 1948."

Any idea why these empty bottles are set up along the highway?


(original unknown)

Perhaps, they are DIY reflectors?

For that bottle fence I'd guess that the fence is electrical (to keep the animals in) and those bottles work as insulators for the wire.
