This is reported to be the world’s oldest car. It is a 1884 de Dion Bouton et Treardoux dos-a-dos steam runabout called La Marquise and has a top speed of 60 km/h and runs on coal, wood and paper. Its steam powered engine will give you enough range for 30 km trip. It is going up for auction on the 6th of October and if you are interested it will set you back about $2 million! Remember this story when the dealer offers you $500 for your old bomb… it could be priceless in 100 years or so.

British Airways plane at Airport Road Crossing - Gibraltar Airport


You may know we like bridges. But we also like airports. Not any old airports. Rather, ones that are a little unusual. And we think this one is more than a little unusual. Gibraltar  is a British overseas territory that is often mentioned in old war movies but barely rates a mention at the average dinner table. But if you ever flew into Gibraltar Airport you would have a story to tell. Not just because there is a great big rock out your window. It is unusual because it has a major road that crosses the main runway. When planes take off or land the traffic has to stop and likewise, planes cannot land unless the roadway is clear. This produces interesting times for pilots, passengers, drivers and residents alike.

If you thought our previous post about old school advertising was out there, this one is even better. Given that beer is normally marketed at males, kudos to the advertising executive who dreamed up this campaign aimed at BREASTFEEDING MOTHERS AND THEIR BABIES!

We came across this video from Japan the other week and could not believe what we were looking at. It fascinates us both scientifically (why does it happen?) and gastronomically (how could you eat it?). Apparently it is caused by a voltage reaction between the high salt content in the sauce and the nerves in the tentacles to cause the effect you see in the video.


Please understand that the squid has been served without its head so you are not looking at anything that is alive.


Thanks to Christian Ibrahim, The Daily Mail and nhanphantrung for the video.

Hang in there… Friday’s coming

Had a bad morning? Did your train run late? Forgot to iron your shirt? Spill your coffee? I think no matter how bad your day started this poor bloke from the New York sanitation department had a worse morning. Good to hear that he was rescued by the fire department. Pity about that hole in the wall though.

When kids start smoking (and we wish they wouldn’t!) one of the things they like doing is to see who can blow the biggest smoke rings. Well kids, the game is over. The winner is Etna.

City to Surf Marathon


This Sunday August 14th sees the greatest fun run (although some take it very seriously) of the year. Up to 60,000 people will head off from College St to Bondi Beach on the 14km run.


This means if you plan visiting Bondi (or anywhere along the route) on Sunday think twice.


Sydney, enjoy your run
