weird and wonderful


If you are heading to the States this summer, instead of the usual touristy attractions like the Empire State Building, Sears Tower, The Magnificent Mile etc. , explore the weird and wonderful that America has to offer:

The World’s Largest Ball of Twine, Cawker City, Kansas
Yes, it exists and yes it is in the States – Cawker City, Kansas to be exact. Started by Frank Stoeber in 1953, it has grown to weigh nine tons and is 40 feet in diameter. Pretty impressive!

Wee’l Turtle, Dunseith, North Dakota
What could be better than visiting an 18ft giant turtle made from 2,000 wheel rims? Nothing!

UFO Landing Port, Green Bay , Wisconsin
If you are a UFO fanatic than head to Green Bay. There you will find a 42ft tall extraterrestrial airport waiting for space life to land.

Largest Ball of Paint, Alexandria, Indiana
Competing with the world’s largest ball of twine, this 1,300lbs ball of paint has 20,000 coats of paints – amazing.

Enchanted Highway, Dickinson, North Dakota
Just off Interstate 94, you will find the giant solitary figures standing 45ft tall made from storage tanks and scrap metal. Figures include Geese in Flight, Fisherman’s Dream and Pheasants on the Prairie.



Celebrities always look like they have perfect, flawless skin; however, many endure long and quite often painful treatments all in the name of beauty. Would you dare to try these?

Demi Moore
Demi has been known to use leech therapy to help her stay young and fresh looking. The 51-year-old admitted to allowing leeches bite into her skin to detoxify her skin. Ouch.

Sandra Bullock
Sandra Bullock’s anti-ageing beauty treatment is not something everyone will be comfortable doing. The Oscar winning actress admits to using haemorrhoid cream around her eyes to help get rid of crows feet.

Zoe Saldana
Avatar star Zoe Saldana admits to putting mayonnaise into her hair at least once a year and to rubbing olive oil on her dry ends.

Kate Hudson
Almost Famous star Kate Hudson swears by her face ice bath to help revitalise her skin. She literally sticks her face into a bowl of ice and cold water and leaves it there for as long as she can handle.

The scary lengths people go for all in the name of beauty!
