    Some folks take the day off for their birthdays and focus on relaxing and enjoying life. Land Rover, however, is going the opposite way at the start of its 70th anniversary year, taking on a project that by all indications will be extremely difficult and time-consuming. It is restoring one of the original pre-production Series I models debuted at the 1948 Amsterdam Motor Show. Judging from the photos, the restoration team has its work cut out for it.

    Article and more photos here.

    The Tree with the Largest Diameter in the World: El Arbol del Tule This tree is an Ahuehuete or Montezuma Cypress growing in Oaxaca, Mexico in the town of Santa Maria del Tule. The trunk of the tree is 33 feet in diameter and has a circumference of 178 feet. Originally thought to be multiple trees that had grown and fused together, DNA tests have shown that it is actually all one tree.

    Californian coachbuilder Rezvani has now tackled the SUV segment with the imposing Tank off-roader. Based on the Jeep Wrangler, the vehicle boasts a 500-horsepower V-8, suicide-style rear doors and night vision. Everything about this vehicle is extreme, including pricing which starts at $178,000.

    More pictures.

    I would actually not restore it but only get it driving and fully functioning again. Its patina is, to me at least, more interesting and incapable of being recreated in a year compared to having a spotlessly restored in such time.

    Live Personal Soundtrack (2010/2017) adds an experiential layer to the act of looking at art in public. A professional guitarist offers to accompany one museum visitor at a time through the galleries while playing live music only that participant can hear. Both individuals listen through headphones connected to the electric guitar during this intimate exchange. Each duo negotiates the gallery space together, encountering different artworks and other viewers regarding this performance with curiosity. The piece playfully upends the role of interpretive mobile tours while facilitating the visitor’s ability to spend time tuning in to the art on display.

    Legendary whiskey distiller Jack Daniel actually died from kicking his safe after forgetting the combination. He injured his big toe, which got infected, and eventually led to foot amputation. It was too late though, the infection spread, and he eventually died from complications.

    I like this picture a lot but every time I see it, it makes me think of Mark Walberg in “The other guys”

    New IKEA women magazine ad in Sweden for a baby crib.
    The reduced 495 price in red is not visible initially.
    But "Pee here" and wait a few minutes. The strip at the bottom has an embedded pregnancy test, which triggers the new price if the test was positive.

    Story here.
