Phil Weicker and Duncan Forster, Los Angeles-based friends and fellow car enthusiasts, spent nearly six years converting a classic 1969 Cadillac Coupe de Ville into an awesome mobile hot tub, the Carpool DeVille. Both former engineering students, the pair devised a watertight steering system and a way to use the car’s original V8 engine to maintain the hot tub’s ideal water temperature of 102F. The Carpool DeVille holds about 5000 lbs of water and has been fitted with a marine throttle to keep the engine running. What was the trunk now holds a pool filtering system.

Weicker and Forster recently used a Kickstarter campaign to raise the funds needed to get themselves and the Carpool DeVille to the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah this August in hopes of setting the Land Speed Record for the “World’s Fastest Hot Tub.”

"Nobody’s ever gone a hundred miles an hour in an open-air self-propelled hot tub while sitting neck-deep in soothing warm water. We aim to correct that mistake of history this August."

Head over to the Daily Mail for additional images as well as video footage of the Carpool DeVille in action.

Born on this day, Edgar Degas

First time I saw a Little Dancer in “person” was earlier this year at Musée D’Orsay. I stared at its face and details for way more than half an hour. I was soaked in, amazed on how real she looks. And her clothes fabric, rotting and aging… Still one if my all-time favorite sculptures, in hopes to someday see the original wax model!

We can’t stop staring at these breathtakingly dramatic wire sculptures by Staffordshire, England-based sculptor Robin Wight. He specializes in transforming lengths of stainless steel wire into beautiful fairies who appear to be exulting in power of the wind as it scatters the seeds of giant dandelions they hold or trees and blades of grass to which they cling.

Visit Robin Wight’s website and Facebook page to view more of his wonderful wire fairies and click here to learn about Wight’s painstaking process for creating these fantastic pieces. He even offers DIY Fairy Sculpture Starter Kits so you can make your own.

“‘E’s not pinin’! ‘E’s passed on! This parrot is no more! He has ceased to be! ‘E’s expired and gone to meet ‘is maker! ‘E’s a stiff! Bereft of life, ‘e rests in peace!”

This giant sculpture of a distcintly dead parrot has been installed by UKTV channel Gold in London’s Potter’s Field Park to celebrate the upcoming TV broadcast of the Monty Python’s final performance of their “Monty Python Live (mostly)” farewell show. The 49-foot-long fiberglass version of the “Norwegian Blue” from Monty Python’s beloved “Dead Parrot Sketch" was created over a two month period by a team of three sculptors led by artist Iain Prendergast.

"If you hadn’t nailed ‘im to the perch ‘e’d be pushing up the daisies! ‘Is metabolic processes are now ‘istory! ‘E’s off the twig! "

Mister Polly Parrot will soon be installed outside the 02 Arena where the performance of “Monty Python Live (mostly)” is set to take place on Sunday July 20th, 2014. So you’d better start preparing your silliest walk straight away.

'E's kicked the bucket, 'e's shuffled off 'is mortal coil, run down the curtain and joined the bleedin' choir invisible!! THIS IS AN EX-PARROT!!”
