Superman is a Plastic Surgery Addict!
One Superman fan has taken his obsession with looking like the alien from Krypton a bit too seriously: this guy has had over 19 surgeries to alter his appearance in order to look like Superman. This 35-year-old beauty pageant trainer has been cut up an incredible amount of times for alterations ranging from thigh implants to cleft chin and plans to endure more surgeries to increase his height. Ouch. This guy takes “cosplaying” to a whole new level. Check him out on CBM.
Long Live Michael
Sony is busy marketing the PS3… and their ads are awesome. The latest in the series is entitled, “Long Live Michael” — it’s a look at all of the video games this fictional Michael has played over the years using a very clever approach. The short video features characters from all of “Michael”‘s favorite video games as they meet up in a bar, toasting to Michael. You’ll notice a lot of the heroes from your favorite video games as well. Check it out:

City of the Future
Some of the world’s most brilliant minds (okay, we may be reaching here…) sat down to envision and illustrate their version of a futuristic world, complete with multi-level roadways (all of which are underground, leaving the surface streets for walking-room-only), below ground car parks, airfields, and naturally… every building is a skyscraper. The image was originally published in “Popular Science Monthly” in August, 1925. It’s a pretty incredible look at how people envisioned the future — check it out.
