Lets Hit The Mental Gym.


There is a new age emerging, when mental health is emerging as a serious concern among the general public.  More specifically mens mental health.  Over the ages, mens mental health has been swept under the rug, and passed off as “being soft” or too sensitive.  Those types of disparaging sentiments have lead to untold issues among men, and even some say, more specifically Black men.  But regardless the issues, helping them is what’s key.  Charlamane Tha God has taken it upon himself to have some friends do some research, and the results on how some eleviate stress and work on their mental health, is to work OUT their mental health.  Check the method below.

25 Examples Of Forced Perspective.


Forced perspective is a technique that employs optical illusion to make an object appear farther away, closer, larger or smaller than it actually is. It is used primarily in photography, filmmaking and architecture. It manipulates human visual perception through the use of scaled objects and the correlation between them and the vantage point of the spectator or camera. There are many ways to attack photography and some are much more expensive than others. Here in this showcase, there is a stunning collection of forced perspective photography and pictures taken by various artists.  If you know how to shoot a photo then you can also change something fairly simple to something creative or abstract or otherwise more artistic. You don’t need any special skills for taking such shots. It all depends on the environment, imagination and perfect timing.

A Peek Inside The Lamborghini Factory.


The Italian automaker founded in 1963 by feisty Ferrari hater Ferruccio Lamborghini built a long line of swoopy exotics that demanded passionate, dedicated drivers — with an equally passionate and dedicated mechanic on speed dial. Several ownership changes over the years, including an ill-fated union with Chrysler in the 1980s didn’t help the cause. Lamborghinis inspired lust, but consistency of build and reliability proved elusive… Until the Germans got involved.

Audi’s takeover of the company in 1998 instigated dramatic changes in how the famed cars from Sant’Agata Bolognese were conceived, developed and constructed. Eager to retain the brand’s “Italianness,” the Germans kept company headquarters in Sant’Agata, much like how Bugatti remained stationed in Molsheim, France, and Bentley didn’t stray from Crewe, England, once Volkswagen took over.

The German influence not only resulted in shared platforms (like the Audi R8/Lamborghini Gallardo aluminum spaceframe), it also brought a sea change in how emerging technologies are researched, developed and incorporated into the ever-evolving world of supercars.

Lamborghini hit a landmark when it sold its 10,000th Gallardo in 2010, a figure that represents more than all other models produced since the company’s founding. As a replacement for the mighty Murcielago approached the zenith of its three-year development, camouflaged mules were spotted darting through Italian countrysides and along the famed Nürburgring Nordschliefe, and the 691-horsepower flagship was being “fine optimized” in preparation for production.

Floating Net Sculptures.


I’m completely mesmerized by Janet Echelman‘s massive moving net sculptures. Her colorful projects draw inspiration from ancient craft and modern technology, using machine and hand woven UV-resistant fibers and collaborating with local engineers and architects. Each sculpture physically responds to environmental forces like wind, water, and sunlight which makes them so magical and magnificent. Check out the rest of her work and their locations here.

Mind Bending With A 1 Dollar Bill.


I know so many people with their own conspiracy theories, and wild thoughts on the U.S. government and their theorized “underhanded” tactics.  If that wasn’t enough, I’ve got a handful of friends who are all over the Illuminati the Knights Templar, and Free Masons.  So I’ve been familiar with all too many tricks with revealing messages with folding a dollar bill in a certain way.  But when I saw a series of photos using the same trick to produce some wild images, I was impressed.  It just goes to show, with some creativity and folding, the George Washington emblazoned bill can produce some rather entertaining and thought provoking messages.
