Mustang Made From 5,000 Beer Cans


"Like all good students Jack Kirby collected his beers cans.

Unlike most good students the art and design student actually found a use for them.

When he realised Budweiser was giving away his dream car, a 1965 Ford Mustang, he set about making the car out of 5,000 beer cans."

Scorpion Vodka

"This special triple distilled vodka is infused with a real farm raised Heterometrus Spinifer scorpion. The vodka is steeped for several months, which then imparts a unique flavour into the liquor, it is quite an acquired taste. The story is that this is used in SE Asia as a Aphrodisiac; and it also has medical uses, such as the treatment of back and muscle pain. Every bottle is unique in its own way so therefore the item purchased may differ slightly in looks but not size."

Lego Desk

"Here are some facts about The Desk:
  • Approximately 35,000 LEGO bricks were used. This includes almost all the pieces from 32 Blue Tubs (#3033), almost 300 (!) small baseplates (8x16 studs), and 63 blue plate packs from LEGO Shop-at-Home. A few other pieces were also bought from private collectors (226 tiles so the drawers could slide, et cetera).
  • The desk weighs about 120 pounds, I think. I have not actually weighed it... but I think that is close.
  • About 7 pounds of glue were used. Brand: Oatey, All-Purpose (PVC, CPVC, ABS) Glue.
  • The desk has the following dimensions (inches, WxHxD): 60" x 29.5" x 30".
  • It has 7 working drawers (six small, one large).
  • It has a folding lid in the top that conceals a hole for computer cables to drop through.
  • Yes, the top is bumpy -- studs up. I offered to make the top smooth, but the client specifically requested otherwise. Whatever. I also offered to build a retractable keyboard tray in the front, but that was not wanted. Nor a mosaic of the company logo on the top or sides.
  • Yes, I was paid to build the desk. Don't ask how much. It was worth my time."
