Not long ago, you couldn't buy a Western car in Russia or the Eastern Bloc. That led to some wild, innovative styling by Soviet car designers. Here's a look at five models we'd love to get our hands on.
When you're a single dude -- no matter how popular you are with the ladies -- there will always be downtime. When your female companions are busy with work, need to head home, do some wash, or are just sick of being referred to as “friends with benefits,” you may find yourself a little lonely. If you won’t “put a ring on it” as Beyonce advises, you might want to consider adopting one of man’s truest of friends—a dog.
For well-traveled souls who’ve seen one too many European cathedrals in their lifetime, it can be easy to dismiss them as old news. The massive Catedral de Santa María de la Sede in Seville, Spain isn’t just another old church, though. It happens to be the largest Gothic cathedral on the planet, and the third largest church in the world. If you're a fan of impressive architecture, this one is hard to beat.
Once upon a time, the rulers of China, especially the Ming Dynasty emperors, decided to build a very big and very long wall, in order to keep the Manchurian and Mongolian raiders at bay. Maybe you’ve heard of this “Great Wall of China?” It’s kind of well known.
Kashmir, for those of you who may be unaware, is more than a kickass Led Zeppelin song. Back in the day, Kashmir, and more specifically Dal Lake, located in the lush mountain city of Srinagar, in Northern India, was a Shangri-La of sorts for the Mughal rulers (Muslim descendants of the Mongolian warrior,Genghis Khan) of India, and later on, the British Raj (colonial government).
Salt, salt and more salt everywhere, as far as the eye can see. If Pablo Escobar had ever happened upon the vast salt flats of La Salar de Uyuni in Bolivia, while he was still alive and on a coked up rampage, he could have easily mistaken the seemingly endless and eerily beautiful salt vistas here for his own personal heaven, caked over with an endless supply of Bolivian marching powder.
Everyone wants to amaze their friends now and again, making them jealous of your adventure-filled life. You could post photos of you and your parents sitting camelback in front of the pyramids in Egypt, or maybe make your pals sit through a video of you riding a zipline across a tropical canyon somewhere. But hey, we’ve all done that, right? Let's kick it up a notch.
While some foods pose a risk to human beings simply because they affront our sense of decorum, or force our gag reflex into working overtime, other dishes can literally stop our hearts and send us to the grave, if prepared incorrectly No one should have to die just because they chose the wrong dish, or the wrong chef.
Man is widely considered to be the deadliest animal on the planet, mostly because it's hard to match the killing power of our guns and nuclear bombs. Even so, there are plenty of lethal predators out there that are more than willing to take us on and, if fortune favors these creates in battle, rip a chunk out of our flesh, or even end our lives.
There are a lot of wild jobs out there for the adventurous set. Sure, you could aspire to the lofty position of astronaut or Air Force Raptor pilot, but there aren’t many slots open in those exclusive fields
Towards the end of the last century, the muscle car was something of a dying breed, but this iconic expression of steel, power and American might has made an impressive comeback, despite the always rising prices of gasoline.
To some purists, the Chevy Corvette ZR1 might be more of a sports car than an unadulterated muscle car, but for those of us who remember our "hip" neighbor, or the local Don Juan cruising around in a classic Corvette (usually with a hot girl by his side), this is one vehicle that packs a nostalgia-inducing wallop
The 2013 Dodge Challenger is an exceptionally elegant muscle car, if such a comparison can be made.
This car comes with a sturdy V6 engine that will get you moving down the street with 375 horsepower, yet somehow manages to be a fairly fuel efficient vehicle (for a muscle car, that is) at the same time
