some unusual forms of transportation

ever think of what you'd do if your legs for some reason didn't work anymore? here's a few solutions. the first is a home built by a man with paralyzed legs. pretty damn good for a cripple wouldn't you say. next is an ad for the English made Invacar. third is what was called the Harding "spinal carriage" pretty odd but it got someone around everyday. no. 4 is a picture of two different Invacars and no.5 is an interior shot of one.



Vintage Cut for sale



For your consideration is this vintage Devils Diciples Levis denim jacket vest. This is your opportunity to own an impossibly rare piece of vintage motorcycle club history. Do not hesitate, because this will be the ONLY example you see come up for auction! The Devils Diciples is a notorious outlaw motorcycle club with an established foundation in Fontana (Southern California [hence, "SoCal"]). The gang also developed chapters in Alabama, Arizona, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, and Ohio. Although famously rivaled by the Hells Angels, some would argue that even though the Devils Diciples are lesser known, they are perhaps the fiercest and most respected motorcycle club of all time. With a bond of brotherhood stronger than blood, and a respect for the gang's legacy beyond that of family, it becomes very difficult to find any authentic article of attire, at least, that is what would seem logical...

I guess it is a piece of history but for almost 700 bucks,(current bid) The girl should come with it.

Magnat-Debon Motorcycles and one scooter





sunday steam

here are some miscellaneous pictures of mostly stationary steam engines plus one mobile engine. first is a great picture of the inside of a 19th century engine house. perhaps a water pumping station or the like. next we have the mobile engine. a Fowler ploughing engine from England. how could they leave those dangerous gears out in the open like that? could people in the 19th century have been smarter? did they actually know to keep their hands etc. out of the moving machinery? if this were made today you wouldn't be able to see any of it as it would be covered in safety shields. notice the gear and winding drum beneath the belly of the beast. this engine did not draw the plough behind it but pulled it back and forth across the field with a cable. third is an old beam engine from the 1830's. fourth looks like a two cylinder vertical compound engine and is from USA 1879. and last we have another beam engine from England about 1855.



Where would we be without glass



Glass has become a very important part of our daily lives yet we rarely take notice of it in it's many forms. Take a good look, it's everywhere. The glass plate wall sculpture is a piece by Thomas Long.



























































Blowup Doll wins

Professional wrestling is really fake. I can not believe how people get into it and take the act as real thing. I went to see WWE once and it was one of the most depressing days of my life.

If it is fake, might as well go this far. It is a footage from a small professional wrestling organization in Japan. Entertaining.

No Met No Hands

I don’t know if you have paid attention in the scene. The rider was doing about 220-240km/h (130-150mph) according to the speedo in the footage. I can not believe the cameraman, David Eggby’s dedication
