This Flooded Bangkok Mall is Teaming with Fish

In a post apocalyptic type scene, photographer Jess Rockwell visited an abandoned shopping mall in Bangkok, Thailand that was flooded and is now full of fish!

Apparently in 1999 the mall was destroyed by a fire, and as the roof went up in flames basement floors began to flood during the rainy season. At some point in 2000 someone introduced catfish and koi, and they have been thriving here since.

Sleep Amongst the Trees with this Suspended Tent

Camping can be fun if you have somewhere comfortable to sleep at night. Majority of the time you struggle to find a smooth, flat surface to lie on.

A company named Tentsile have come up with this brilliant suspended tent. Well its kind of a like a hammock and a tent made sweet love and this thing came out…

Outdoor Shower that Connects to Any Hose

The perfect poolside shower is here!

The Viteo Shower connects up to any hose pipe so you don’t have to go very far from the pool to rinse of the chlorine from the pool. All you do in step on it and your body weight triggers the jets to pray up. Just be careful if you decide to skinny dip!

However with a price tag of €625 (R 9000) I don’t think you’ll be seeing them at you next pool party.

This Video Proves People are Sheep!

In this video, a random guy decides to “celebritify” himself by getting a spray tan, fancy clothes and an entourage of security and photographers. He managed to fool quite a few people around New York city, although not everyone fell for it.

It just goes to show what suckers some people are when they see others fawning over a “celebrity”.
