You know what I hate? When you try to impress someone by jumping between two buildings but you mistime your jump and fall between the gap and have to be rescued. You gotta really hate that. A uni student from Pittsburgh was out to impress a woman but after crews had to use jackhammers to smash through a restaurant wall to extract him , I’m guessing it’s a NO.
Claudius, why can’t you be more like him?
What’s more embarrassing than having to be rescued after falling down a gap between two buildings? Having a bunch of firefighters use an airbag and lubricant to squeeze you out, that’s what. The embarrassing little predicament happened in Oregon and it took rescuers four hours to free the woman from the 10 gap…. but it may take years for it to removed from YouTube.
If you happen to be on the Caribbean island of Saint Martin and are bored senseless, you can always head to Maho Beach and jet blown away by airplane jet streams. You just gotta be careful of concrete walls. JetBlue 1, girl 0
Attention Dan Brown, Dan Brown to the front counter please, we think may have found a missing Da Vinci. That sneaky little artist Giorgio Vasari may have thought he had the last laugh by hiding Leo’s masterpiece behind his “Battle of Marciano” fresco but those experts in Florence are on to you.The only problem, is the mural is hidden behind a friggin brick wall and the only way to get to it is through Vasari’s painting. Art experts are pretty sure it’s the Leonardo’s long lost work “The Battle of Anghiari” after discovering that grit removed from the wall contained black pigment and lacquer, which is very similar to what Leo used in his brown glazes (hmm, straw clutching?).
The missing painting was commissioned by Piero Soderini in 1502 and depicted the Italian knights defeating Milanese forces in 1440. Leonardo decided it was an opportune time to do a bit of experimenting with a new oil painting technique but from all accounts it was a bit of a failure so he left it unfinished. Anywho, as rumor has it when Vasari, in the 1550s, was commissioned to remodel the hall and paint over Da Vinci’s unfinished work he built a fake wall to protect it instead. Varsari then left a cryptic clue within his mural for Dan Brown like people to discover ….. “cerca trova,” (seek and you shall find). See, artist were so much cooler back then!!!
Psst They are already calling it a masterpiece when it was pretty clear Leonardo hated the stupid thing!!!
The Virgin Mary is currently in Florida residing on the wall of Hamburger Mary’s restaurant, just in case you were wondering. Hmm, evidently this isn’t the first time the Blessed Virgin has appeared on an inanimate object in Tampa Bay. Go Tampa. A few years back she made herself at home on the glass windows of a Clearwater office building. That was until vandals threw rocks at her. Anywho, for those of you of the religious persuasion who want to take a gander at the Virgin Mary on the wall of Hamburger Mary’s just take note the restaurant is famous for its gay karaoke and drag queen bingo nights. Not that there is anything wrong with that!
