Shimizu Mega-City Pyramid, Tokyo


Another example of the craziest construction projects, the Shimizu Mega-City Pyramid, would have housed around one million people. The proposal was to build a floating city in Tokyo’s harbor that would so big it could house 100-storey skyscrapers inside it. Whilst logically sound, especially for an overpopulated city like Tokyo, the technical difficulties ultimately spelled its doom. The design was to make the pyramid of up to five trusses stacked on top of one another, each about the size of the Great Pyramid of Giza. Whilst unrealized, this is something straight out of sci-fiction and remind the author of Hive Cities in the Warhammer 40,000 Universe, only on water! We make no apologies for the “geek out” moment!

Diving into 1,000 Mousetraps is Just as Painful as it Sounds


Gavin and Dan of the Slow Mo Guys are known for pulling off some pretty painful stunts. They’ve been shot with paintballs, had fruit smashed in their face, and risked getting burned by rockets and flames. The latest video might be their most painful yet, made all the more cringeworthy thanks to 4K slow motion. The guys set up a trampoline full of mousetraps before jumping down to their doom.

As with other pain-inducing videos, Dan is the one tasked with risking injury for the sake of views. There’s something completely relatable with Dan’s yelp of regret as he leaps from a nearby ladder onto the trampoline. While the pressure from one mousetrap snap can sting, they’re normally an annoyance to a human who steps on it. However, a thousand traps will certainly leave a lot more bruises.

Most impressive from the video was seeing the pressure from Dan’s impact trigger the surrounding mousetraps. The guys compared it to sound vibrations from a speaker cone.

Dan surprisingly said he found it “kind of comfy” and was more worried about hitting the trampoline. Sure, Dan, sure.

AbRam was claimed to be Aryan Khan’s son! Shah Rukh Khan talks about these disturbing rumours


we had given you a glimpse of the TED Talks that Shah Rukh Khan gave in Vancouver after the actor was invited to share his inspirational journey with the audience. Amidst sharing his journey and while talking about the disadvantages of the fast growing internet, Shah Rukh Khan shared a rather shocking rumour that were doing the rounds about his son Aryan Khan that had left his family quite disturbed.

We all are aware that Shah Rukh Khan and Gauri Khan became parents to their third child four years ago, AbRam. However, post the birth of AbRam, which was considered to be birth by surrogacy, there were several speculations and the high profile celebrity couple was subjected to extreme scrutiny.

From being trapped in a case regarding sex determination to moral policing revolving around surrogacy, the couple faced several setbacks. Amidst this, there were apparently reports claiming that AbRam was actually the son of Aryan Khan, Shah Rukh Khan’s eldest son who was then 15 years old.

Talking about the same, the actor said, “Four years ago, my lovely wife Gauri and me decided to have a third child. It was claimed on the net that he was the love child of our first child who was 15 years old. Apparently he had sown his wild oats with a girl while driving her car in Romania. And yeah, there was a fake video to go with it. And we were so disturbed as a family.”

While this incident had left many surprised as we wondered about the source of such reports on the net, Shah Rukh Khan mentioned that listening to these stories were indeed disturbing for them as a family. However, knowing his impeccable sense of humour he was quick to add, “My son who is 19 now, even now when you say ‘Hello’ to him, he just turns around and says, ‘But bro, I didn’t even have a European driving license’”.

Although the last bit was added in good humour, Shah Rukh Khan showcased the kind of effect that such maligning reports could have on one’s life.

Besides this, Shah Rukh Khan also shared some deeper insights about his life as he also spoke about how he is perceived as the Baadshah of Bollywood yet admitted about how he failed when it came to reinventing his image.

This Indonesian bakery creates the worlds most elaborate wedding cakes


When it comes to celebrations, lavish cakes are a given. While the majority of us would love to gorge on a luscious piece of cake at any point in time, the rare one percent of the non-cake loving clan would also change their minds after seeing the decadent, spectacular and jaw-dropping creations at LeNovelle Cakes – a family run bakery in Jakarta, Indonesia that specializes in epic wedding cakes. From fairy-tale castles to glazed cathedrals and pagodas up to 7 meters tall, the bakery creates impressive cakes that are as much a treat for the eyes as or the taste buds.

Founded in 1993 as a neighborhood cake business selling birthday cakes to friends and family, the now world-famous bakery has grown at an enormous rate, creating masterpieces that take up to 24 people working 12 hours a day for over a month to complete. Most of their creations measure around 7-meters-tall and can weigh dozens of pounds, often needing a truck to be carried around! The largest of their cakes, in fact needed five trucks and a total of eight man hours for transportation and assembly! Further, to make the cakes look all the more eye-catching, LeNovelle often fits them with lighting and bulbs.

However, sadly enough, these breathtaking castles are only party edible as many of the detailed elements are made from Styrofoam which is then coated with fondant icing and decorated with sugar paste flowers. Prices for LeNovelle Cake’s elaborate creations start at $5,000, but the most expensive one they’ve ever made was sold for a whopping $500,000. Fancy some castle cake?

2018 Mercedes S-Class is here and it can almost drive itself


The refreshed 2018 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Sedan has been revealed ahead of its debut at the 2017 Shanghai auto show that begins this week. The German automaker’s flagship luxury limo comes in several flavors from the base model all the way to the top-spec AMG variants and this is the first major upgrade the sixth-generation S-Class has received since its launch in 2013. The mid-cycle refresh has brought subtle changes to the external design, but the revised Mercedes-Benz S-Class has undergone a massive transformation under the skin.

The Mercedes-Benz S-Class gets redesigned front fascia and revised headlights. The V12 model’s front grille is now standard across the lineup. At the back, there is a new rear bumper and new taillights. A choice of two new 20-inch wheels complete the changes on the outside. Inside the cabin, three new upholstery choices have been added including Silk Beige/Deep-Sea Blue, Magma Grey/Espresso Brown, and Mahogany/Silk Beige. The luxury sedan’s new three-spoke steering wheel and the new generation of the automaker’s COMAND multimedia system were revealed by Mercedes ahead of the launch.

A range of new engines have been added to the line-up. Under the hood, the S450 gets a new 3.0-liter V6 that makes 362 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque. The S560, on the other hand, gets a new 4.0-liter V8 which makes 463 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque and features cylinder deactivation to improve fuel economy. The S-Class AMG twins, the S63 and S65, benefit from new engines, transmissions, and an all-wheel drive system. Both the models have been given revised brakes, fresh wheels, a new exhaust system, adaptive sports seats, and performance apps built into the infotainment system. The cars get updated suspensions, with the S65’s based on Mercedes’ Magic Body Control.

Changes to the opulent Mercedes-Maybach line are minimal except for the Maybach logo making its way to the front grille. The biggest technological upgrade comes in the form of the brand’s latest Intelligent Drive suite of active safety and driver assistance tech. The automaker says the new features bring the S-Class closer to autonomous driving. There is no information on the pricing as of yet and it is expected to be revealed closer to its on-sale date in the U.S. in late 2017.
