Potpourri [7]

An overview of recent images that would have ended up in my parallel blog Art's Potpourri (now stopped). Clicking the icons in the left side of the table takes you to the picture on the site where I found it in a new window. The text includes a link to the site.

web site
The Brexit domino effect. This cartoon, picked up at the 9gag site, is the funniest I have seen on the whole Brexit disaster. Kudos to whomever came up with this idea - especially because it seemed like a real danger for a while (Just for Fun). First seen here.
web site
Seabreacher. I may not be into boats, but it would be cool to own this one, a twoseater looking just like a killer whale. It reaches speeds of up to 55 mph as well - and apparently shark and dolphin versions are available as well (Special Designs). First seen here.
web site
Walking your octopus. Too good to file under Just for Fun. Disney illustrator Brian Kesinger created this illustrated story what life with a pet octopus would be like. I picked my favourite to show in the display left, but do look at the link (Amazing Stuff). First seen here.
web site
Suspended Deconstructions. Mexican artist Damian Ortega specializes in taking objects like cars apart and suspending all parts as a stunning art installation - I'd love to see one of them in reality, would be great to photograph (Remarkable Art). First seen here.
web site
Sale! Sale! Sale! "You keep on using that word. I don't think it means what you think it means." Some hilarious examples of sale sign fails, including higher prices, discounts of one cent, or nonsense deals, like "Buy 3 for the price of 3" (Mixed Nuts). First seen here.
web site
Mind bending placemat. Taken from a post on innovative Japanese designs, which I recommend browsing in its entirety: lots of interesting stuff to be found there. I really like this optical illusion style place mat available from A.P. Works (Special Designs). First seen here.
web site
Lobster attack. Taken from a fascinating post about photographs that are not what they seem, and once more a recommendation to click the link and sample the others. This lobster in a bucket looks like a space monster (Amazing Stuff). First seen here.
web site
At Earth's end. Finally the notorious Flat Earth Society has the undeniable proof they've been looking for since decades. Too bad for them that it's just a simple camera malfunction - albeit with a stunning result. Full story in the link (Amazing Stuff). First seen here.
