Tweezers of Legend

Multi-tools are great for your everyday carry, but let's face it, most are not aesthetically pleasing. "Tweezers of Legend" aims to break that tradition with a sword-shaped design that looks to be straight from a cartoon. They were originally made of stainless steel, but the company now offers it in titanium, as well as in a slew of new designs, like miniature lances and staves. How are they made? Wire electric discharge machining. "In this way wire electric discharge machining can cut metal vertically with high precision. This is the feature that is necessary to increase the accuracy of tweezers. The tip of the tweezers works by matching two flat faces. If there is only a slight distortion on that side, a gap will be formed and you will not be able to grab the thin hair. Tweezers of Legend made with wire electric discharge machining has high precision so that you can grasp the fibers of tissue paper," said a company representative.

Photographer Ron Risman headed over to the Great Island Commons in New Castle, New Hampshire, to capture the Whaleback Lighthouse on March 3rd, located 0.8-miles offshore. After the shoot with a Canon 5D Mark IV with Sigma 150-600mm lens on a tripod, New England photographer Eric Gendron saw Ron's image on Instagram and wondered if he had somehow lifted the former's work, when in fact, both shot the same image at the exact millisecond in time. "It wasn't until another local photographer started comparing my photo to a higher resolution version of Eric's image that he noticed that the iron gating around the top of the lighthouse had slightly different spacing between the vertical bars compared to my image. This would indicate that the other photographer was likely standing just a little bit left of where I was standing," said Risman. Continue reading for the uncropped phtoos and information.

Man Tattoos Face Gray

Cancer survivor Adam Curlykale from Poland has become an internet sensation, and not in the conventional manner. He decided to tattoo his entire face, including his eyes, a graphite grey color, and dye his facial hair white, to create a film negative version of himself. Why? Because at 22, he was diagnosed with cancer of the large intestine, and treatment caused several skin conditions and a partial disappearance of the pigment in the skin.

Jesse James Photo

Justin Whiting from Spalding, U.K. stumbled upon a vintage photo while browsing eBay back in July 2017, and what caught his eye was that it resembled Jesse James. So, he purchased it for $9.99 and went about his business, that is until...he took it to forensic experts in the United States who then confirmed it was original and most likely handled by the famous outlaw himself, aged 14. "It was an easy match since it was compared to a longtime known image of the young Jesse James at 14. Justin's image, however, was the same pose taken the same day by the same photographer[...] [It's a] one-of-a-kind original that most likely was handled by the teenaged Jesse James himself," said 19th-century photo expert Will Dunniway. Continue reading for two more pictures, another video and additional information.

Nectome Brain Backup


Not quite as advanced as the "stacks" seen in Netflix's Altered Carbon, but startup Nectome claims they can perfectly preserve human brains for use in the future when technology will enable them to transfer their consciousness to a computer. How? The company says that they will be able to survey the neural connections within the brain and reconstruct a person's memories long after they have died. Two caveats: co-founder Robert McIntyrehe says the service is "100 percent fatal" for clients, since the brain has to be pumped full of embalming chemicals while still fresh and it will cost you $10,000 for the privilege.

Mean Mower MK2


Approximately 4-years ago, Honda revealed the world's fastest lawn mower, called the Mean Mower, and it set a Guinness World Record for the fastest speed reached by a lawn mower. Now, they are set to debut its successor, the Mean Mower Mk2.

How fast is it from 0-60 mph? Well, the first-generation model could hit 60 mph in a mere 4.0-seconds, so we could be looking a sub 4.0-second times for the Mk2.
