Humming Brrrr

“On Jan. 27, 2021, water melted off of Tammy Shriver’s rooftop in Bangor, dripped onto the tree branches below, then refroze in the shape of a hummingbird.”

“A little bit of sunshine that day melted the hummingbird somewhat, transforming it into a different bird.”

Dhakkan Cruiser

Dhakkan Cruiser

‘Dhakkan’ in Hindi means a lid, it’s also a slang word used to call someone an ‘idiot’ or ‘stupid’.

Self constructed and designed by the orphans of Mumbai from the junk available in the slums and the industrial wastelands.

I designed this keeping in mind the scrap that could be available like, canvas cloth, wooden planks, jet engines, chariot vehicle parts, streetlights, etc. Special features: Thrust pod / eject pod. Designed for rapid pursuits and capturing drones & other gang-war vehicles.

Specs:
Dimension: 16mts x 5mts approx.
Construction: Scrap material, basic steel framework.
Armament: Laser blasters

1955 Tighty Whities

“In 1955, Jockey Briefs ran an ad campaign featuring young boys shoving guns into their underwear.  The image on the left is via vintageskivvies.com, who says that it ran in Woman’s Home Companion; the one on the right is from eBay.” Posted By: Alex – Sun Oct 13, 2013

I spotted the ad on the left somewhere recently, thought it had to be a photoshop due to recent events. Nope. It’s legit, and there were no riots at Kenosha Elementary on that day.
