Bar Is Built Into The Hollow Trunk Of This Tree In South Africa!

This Baobab tree in Limpopo, South Africa is one of the largest living things on Earth, and one of the oldest. Carbon dating indicates the tree was a tiny little sapling when the pyramids were still unbuilt in Egypt. That's old, but the real reason people visit this natural wonder is hidden inside the tree.

At about a thousand years old Baobab trees begin to become hollow, leaving a space inside. The outer edge of the is tree is over six feet thick and the hollow spot is large enough for a full service bar! The bar is designed to hold fifteen but the owner admits to having as many as 50 guest squeezed into the tree.

Egg Stacking. This Man Stacks Eggs Into Incredible Works Of Art!

I don't know exactly how this man manages to stand eggs upright. Perhaps they each have a little pile of salt or something beneath them? But he does, and he stacks them in an amazing way and in great quantity until a fantastic piece of temporary and well balanced artwork is revealed.

Bus Stop Bench Has A Built In Scale That Weighs Bus Riders!

Robot Nine is not exactly sure where these images were taken as they came in via e-mail. It appears to be in Europe. The city fathers were thoughtful enough to install scales in the seats of bus stop benches, scales that prominently display your weight to everyone on the street. (In kilograms)
Hmmm... I was thinking this would not be popular in our hometown of Houston, Texas, one of the fattest cities in the United States, but I just thought of two other things.
1.- People here are so heavy they would soon break the scale.
2.- Nobody in Houston EVER rides the bus!

Weird Things To Buy In Foreign Supermarkets That Make Interesting Souvenirs

Robot Nine found this neat collection in a travel article that had the great idea of skipping t-shirts, seashells, and mass manufactured junk when looking for souvenirs in foreign countries. They suggested, and it's a good idea, finding odd things in exotic supermarkets that aren't readily available in the United States. Funny.


Bear Soup.
Wow, that sure seems like something hard to keep up a decent supply of, but maybe it's just clever marketing for, um.... some other meat!


What makes coconut juice just a little bit better?
Meat, of course.


I think I'll just ask for sponge pudding and not suffer the eternal wrath of my traveling companions.


Yeah, we bet this fish sauce really is special!


They not only can't believe it's not butter, they swear on the package that it is not.


Talk about niche marketing. Let's alienate half the market for our candy bar!


Miss Fit or misfit? You decide.

Horse Gets His Head Stuck In A Tree!

What an unfortunate predicament this poor horse finds himself in. How in the world did the horse get his head stuck in the crack in the tree? Robot Nine doesn't know anything about these pictures: not the location, the situation, or the outcome. We love animals and hope for the best though. Please, if you know, let us know and we will re-post the images with more details.
