Fun Stuff


Responsible or Irresponsible?

French artist and designer Julien Berthier has designed this fully functional boat with the intent to fool the viewer into thinking that it's sinking!

A 6.5m (21ft) yacht has been cut in half, a new keel and engine added so that it stays in the sinking position, whilst remaining fully functional.

Berthier describes it as 'the permanent and mobile image, of a wrecked ship, that has become a functional and safe leisure object.'

I'll bet Coast Guards love him!

He has named his creation Love Love!

Berthier has taken his creation across the English Channel to London and toured around Europe in it.

He gets plenty of offers from good Samaritans, going out of their way to provide assistance! They tend to be either very annoyed, or rather bemused by his contraption.

So, What do You Think, Responsible or Irresponsible?

Catfish - Hard to Swallow

You probably wouldn't have believed this, if you hadn't seen the following pictures:

A guy who lives at Lake Saint Marys, (60 miles north of Dayton, OH) saw a ball bouncing around kind of strangely in the lake and went to investigate.

It turned out to be a flathead catfish that had apparently tried to swallow a basketball which became stuck in its mouth!

The fish was totally exhausted from trying to dive, but unable to, because the ball would always bring him back up to the surface.

The guy tried numerous times to get the ball out, but was unsuccessful. He finally had his wife cut the ball in order to deflate it and release the hungry catfish.
