The Dildo Maker by Francesco Morackini

020 The Dildo Maker by Francesco Morackini

Invented in 1933 by the famous french designer Raymond Loewy, this pencil sharpner became an icon of the stream line mouvement. Loewy was one of the first designer to introduce sensual lines in everyday products. From a world of craftmanship and functionality we entered in a world of desire and seduction.

Catasaurus Rex

1162 Catasaurus Rex

When Pickles the puss grew to the size of a dog, he found himself in a bit of a pickle.

At 21 pounds and more than three-feet long, he couldn’t find an owner with a heart – or home – big enough to take him in – so he was forced to roam the streets in search of scraps to suppress his almighty appetite. But the monster moggy – nicknamed Catasaurus Rex – has finally found a place to live after a young Boston couple saw an advert online and took pity on him.

Andrew Milicia and girlfriend Emily Zarvos say it was love at first sight when they met Pickles at the Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals last month. And now he couldn’t be happier as he spends most of his days squeezing sleepily onto their three-man sofa or guzzling platefulls of cat food to his heart’s content.

Britain’s Tallest Dog

Canine colossus Freddy is believed to be Britain’s biggest dog. The Great Dane has been measured at 7ft 4in (2.24m) on his hind legs by owner Claire Stoneman. Although no official measurement has yet been made, that would make Freddy as tall as world-record holder Zeus, and significantly larger than Britain’s current biggest dog Samson, who is 6ft 6in (1.98m). The gigantic dog began life as the runt of the litter, but experienced an astonishing growth spurt to reach his current size. Claire, a 38-year-old taxi driver from Leigh-on-Sea, Essex, who drives a Barbie-pink cab, lives with Freddy and his sister Fleur.

“Smiley” False Killer Whale

1156 “Smiley” False Killer Whale
This cheeky chappy isn’t in the mood to live up to his scary reputation as he is pictured here cracking a killer smile as he goes about his daily business. In some of the pictures, taken offshore in Kona, Hawaii, it even looks like the creature is showing off his best side as he beams from ear to ear. The amusing photographs show what appears to be a big grin plastered across the face of a False Killer Whale as he patrols the sea looking for food, seemingly tickled by something. American photographer Doug Perrine, 60, snapped the shots last year while the False Killer Whale was out hunting for food. (Photos by Doug Perrine/Iber-Press)

Carpe Diem Calendar 2014

Carpe diem 012 Carpe Diem Calendar 2014

A disappearing, a dying function is a good occasion for a gravestone oration. One can trample upon a function’s grave, thereby freeing oneself from the function’s burden. It does not imply a deconstruction of an alive function, rather – a work with the mental body’s memory, the phantom pain of the mental, which prevents the fleeting – the modern-day offline calendar – from eroding beyond repair.
