The World’s Biggest Tricycle

The mammoth tricycle requires one to pedal about 300 times for its giant wheels to make a full revolution! More information the creator of this tricycle, K. Sudhakar, can be found in a very cool article on Gulfnews.

Cheers Trivia

John Ratzenberger (Cliff) originally auditioned for the role of barfly Norm Peterson.
Before John Ratzenberger made it big on Cheers, he had bit roles in some of Hollywood’s biggest blockbusters, including The Empire Strikes Back, Superman, and Gandhi.
Although the Cheers bar was fully functional (and many NBC after-hours parties were held on the set), the suds served to George Wendt weren’t exactly a tasty microbrew. In fact, it was “near beer,” with an alcohol content of 3.2 percent, and a pinch of salt added so that the mug kept a foamy head under the hot studio lights.
Jay Thomas was the morning DJ at LA’s KPWR-Power 106 when he auditioned for (and won) the role of hockey star Eddie LeBec. He was brought back for several episodes in order to give Carla a story arc, and Eddie and Carla eventually wed on the show. Eddie might have made it to the series finale had Jay Thomas not taken a call on the air one morning asking him “What’s it like working on Cheers?” Thomas made several unflattering remarks about Rhea Perlman and having to kiss her… and Rhea happened to be listening to his show. Not surprisingly, a few weeks later Eddie LeBec was killed in a bizarre Zamboni accident.

Austrian cinema goes to the dogs

Vienna's dog owners can now share their favorite movies with their pets after Admiral-Kino, one of the city's old traditional cinemas, on Wednesday introduced the Austrian capital's first "Doggy Day" at the movies. Every first Thursday of the month, dogs will be allowed into the 95-year-old establishment to enjoy big screen adventures.
For €6 ($8,8) per biped and accompanying quadruped, special cuddle seats are available to the Viennese moviegoers and their best friend, complete with fresh water and dog popcorn for the four-pawed audience. The Admiral management also asked pet owners not to forget leashes and muzzles and only bring dogs who "liked the cinema and are friendly and agreeable companions".

We've got a mysterious SHEEP circle

There was strange things going on at the farm today when a flock of sheep made their own version of a crop circle. About 100 of the woolly creatures formed an orderly ring - baffling the farmer and passers-by. But after hearing the roar of the boss's tractor the animals scattered like a group of naughty schoolboys.
Or is someone trying to pull the wool over your eyes?
