      Fantastically Strange Trucks

      If you remember our article about
      Scary Trucks
      and
      Truck Trains, here are a couple of incredible trucks we found recently:

      Two-headed MAN fire truck - more
      info:

      
      

      This is the two-headed tunnel washer that works in the Mont Blanc tunnel.
      Having two cabs allow it not to turn around in the tunnel.

      Le Tourneau US Army Load Carrier - more
      info

      
      
      (images
        via)

      This is "the 1962 US Army's 13-unit electric hub motor all-wheel-drive
      Overland Train MkII, built for the US Army Transportation Research and
      Development Command. A 'mere' 382 tonnes GCW and 'small' 137 tonnes
      payload."

      Extreme Graffiti News

      We are long overdue for the full-length article about graffiti since our
      last
      Graffiti Showcase. In the meantime, here are some eye-catching examples:

      Steampunk Animals by James Corbett, The Car Part Sculptor

      John Davies Gallery
      has the exhibition of works by James Corbett, each a unique, somewhat
      whimsical structure built from car parts:

      Big Heads

      Click to enlarge - really bizarre ad campaign by DDB London Agency. I feel
      uncomfortable just looking at these:

      

      

      ------------

      Another one of these "get rich quick" schemes?

      Sell these, together with a 30-day course of starting a donut farm.

      Whaaaat?

We as Iranian usually don't have any free access to the net and faced with difficut problems so when we see such fantastic images we really believe ourselve sthat we are not alone in this world, on the other hand English is a language full of joys and surperisings that makes us flabbergasted when we see so much words that every day enter into it. Also we can use the net with the mediate of English language to understand almost every live language that now speaks on the earth. although our goverment strictly restricts internet for mostly entertaining usage we are now feel free to state our words in any possible way and to show the world that we excist. Thanks for your grat Website.
Good Luck Guys & More Power to You.
