Wow, brag much? This chick needs to be a little more humble

Heidi Montag's Breasts Can Multitask

While defying the very laws of reason by acting in a legitimate film yesterday, Heidi Montag somehow find time to squeeze in a photoshoot for her line of hair care products. So not only is Heidi an actress, she's a working model with all the beauty and grace of Barbie having a stroke. We're in a parallel dimension, aren't we? Goddammit.

Grace Park In A Bikini FTW

I’ve said it a million times but Asian chicks are the best. They’re little and skinny with long hair and really soft skin. If being a girl was an Olympic event, Asian girls would set the world record 35 times a day. ‘Battlestar Gallactica’ star Grace Park, seen here filming the new CBS version of ‘Hawaii 5-0', is a perfect example. If you can think of a hotter girl than Grace Park, I’d love to see her, but since you live in fantasy land I’m not sure how you would contact me.

Marla Maples Went to the Beach

Wow, can you believe Marla Maples is 46? She looks amazing. Can you imagine Lindsay Lohan's body looking this good in 23 years? Actually, yes. It depends on what kind of formaldehyde the mortician at the funeral home uses. lol?

PHOTOGRAPHY & EYE CANDY

A Team Attempting A Record For The Longest Ever Cave Penetration

British cave diving instructor and photographer Martyn Farr has travelled the world, exploring some of the world's most spectacular underwater caves. He will join a team next month as they attempt to set a world record for the longest ever cave penetration.

Graffiti Project V Kelburn Castle

The Graffiti Project V Kelburn Castle is really old now (2007) but I found out the other day that someone had never heard of it so felt to remind everyone of it’s awesomeness. Summary of the project was to: "Take the vibrant and often transient art form of Brazilian graffiti out of its predominantly urban context and apply it to the ancient and permanent walls of an historic rural castle in Scotland." The deal was that four of the worlds’ top graffiti artists were commissioned to paint Kelburn Castle with vibrant colours. The project involved the artists and organisers living together in the Castle for one month. New ideas were explored and shared, from both sides of the equator, resulting in a one-off, giant piece of collaborative art. AWESOME.

Tereasa and David's Grown-Up Tree House

The story of the treehouse began when David and Tereasa purchased the Camp Wandawega property. Tereasa's father, Tom, christened the property by hanging a tree swing on the limb of a big old elm right in the middle of the camp. Sadly, a year later, Tom passed away, and about the same time the old elm tree contracted Dutch Elm disease. "I was devastated," Tereasa remembers. "I couldn't cut that tree down."Further investigation revealed that even though the branches of the tree were dying, its trunk was still strong.

Glass Beach of California

Glass Beach is a beach in MacKerricher State Park near Fort Bragg, California that is abundant in sea glass created from years of dumping garbage into an area of coastline near the northern part of the town. In the early 20th century, Fort Bragg residents threw their household garbage over the cliffs above what is now Glass Beach. They discarded glass, appliances, and even cars. The land was owned at that time by the Union Lumber Company, and locals referred to it as "The Dumps." Sometimes fires were lit to reduce the size of the trash pile. In 1967, the North Coast Water Quality Board and city leaders closed the area. Various cleanup programs were undertaken through the years to correct the damage. Over the next several decades the pounding waves cleansed the beach, wearing down the discarded glass into the small, smooth, colored trinkets that cover the beach today.

PLANES, TRAINS & AUTOMOBILES

Jaguar C-X75 goes into production. XJ Coupe also in the works

Jaguar unveiled the C-X75 Concept car at the 2010 Paris Auto Show to show everyone that they had plenty of potential left to uncover as an automaker. And, although the concept was a huge success and served its purpose, Jaguar still needed to prove that this potential prevailed in more than just a design study. Now, under Tata’s influential arm, Jaguar is looking into building "a more accessible variation of the C-X75 concept." Turns out the translation of this statement is a sports car with the C-X75 look and a more conventional engine. There are no details for this model just yet, nor is there any official confirmation of its production, but we’re adding it to our list of models likely to be built within the next few years. Tata’s influence over Jaguar is further illustrated in their future lineup, which includes a lightweight XKR R-type Spyder, a high-performance diesel, and, yes, a crossover that will take on models like the Audi Q5. The British luxury automaker is also working on a coupe version of the current XJ luxury sedan featuring a shortened wheelbase and described as "much more dynamic and emotional than a Mercedes CL."

2012 CAMARO Z28 - with 6.2L supercharged V8 Spotted And Confirmed

Now these new photos are much better than the ones we previously posted! This Camaro Z28 was captured out testing with several other Camaros, as well as a Mustang GT500 (for comparison of course). Seen prominently, even with the front covering is a much lower front fascia with large intakes. You can make out the shape despite the covering and it resembles the latest Transformers 3 Bumblebee Camaro front fascia. The hood cowl also looks to be more prominent than on standard Camaro. The wheels are 20" SP550 anodized black - 20x10 front and 20x11 rears. Wrapped in Goodyear Eagle F1 tires. The brake calipers very much resemble those from the CTS-V. Quad exhaust (dual pipes per side) are at the rear, and the photographer described the sound from this car as "nothing short of unholy!" Best part is, GM was courteous enough to tape the engine specs on the dash: 6.2L supercharged V8, with Auto Transmission.

Vaughn Gittin Jr. Takes Flight in the Ford F-150 SVT Raptor

By now, news that the Ford F150 SVT Raptor can get you over the river and through the woods to grandma's house is older than the dirt splattered down the pickup's side. Still, that doesn't mean that we're above taking a second to watch Vaughn Gittin Jr. put the FoMoCo beast through its paces. As you may recall, Gittin Jr. is the talented hellion who took the 2010 Formula Drift title, so the man knows a thing or two about stretching a vehicle to its limits and beyond. Gittin Jr. teamed up with the crew from Wrecked Magazine to bash through the sand outside of Las Vegas when someone threw open the gates to the local CORR track. That's when things got really interesting. The drift guru set to vaulting the pickup to ever loftier heights. At one point, re-entry causes the Raptor's frame to flex enough to cause the tail gate to pop open on contact with terra firma – impressive given what this bruiser was engineered to withstand.

Mechanic Wrecks Out-of-Town Owner’s $500,000 Ferrari F40

Last week's crash of a half-million-dollar Ferrari F40 in Houston was more than just an unfortunate accident, it was, according to exclusive details Jalopnik gathered over the weekend, the result of a mechanic's test drive gone horribly wrong. The photo shows the aftermath: a rare and expensive Ferrari F40 worth at least $500,000 crushed by a fence. The wheels bent, the front-end destroyed, and a man in the background being treated by EMTs. What the photo doesn't show is how the car wound up in its condition. We've learned from numerous sources that the Ferrari F40 wasn't being driven by the car's owner, but by a mechanic responsible for the vehicle. In fact, the owner was in Europe on business and didn't even know the vehicle was wrecked until this weekend.

TECHNOLOGY & OTHER NEAT STUFF

Mini Portable Simon with Carabiner

If you don't remember Simon, you weren't alive in the 1980s. The popular memory game is back in a mini portable edition with a carabiner clip. As you recall, Simon plays an increasingly complicated pattern of lights and sounds that you must imitate. There are no 3D glasses, you don't have to connect online, and there are certainly no 13-year-old kids to yell at over a headset. Simon is a simple, yet awesomely addictive game that you can carry anywhere. Simon is ready to challenge you. Bring it.

iPhone 4 and the Top Android Phones: Compared on Cost-to-Own and Features

Cost analysis geeks BillShrink have given the iPhone 4 and all of its top Android the side-by-side treatment, putting their features and performance up against their long-term costs. You might be surprised at the cheapest and most expensive offerings. BillShrink's offered up this kind of smartphone comparison before, and the product is equally impressive. Each category of performance (battery life, screen resolution) and cost is granted a winner, but you'll probably skip down to the two-year cost of a data plan. With an "unlimited" (read: almost-all-you-can-eat) data plan, the Nexus One on T-Mobile is the cheapest option, but the iPhone 4 on a 200 MB plan is the cheapest option, all told.

NASA’s Mini X-Plane Completes Initial Flight Testing

A team from NASA and Boeing completed the first phase of flight testing of its blended wing body design that could represent the airliner of the future. The airplane is based on a design where the fuselage provides a significant part of the lift. Such designs, as shown above, could carry hundreds of airline passengers in the large center section while burning much less fuel than today’s airliners of similar capacity. Well, except that the airplane pictured above is only about one foot tall. The test aircraft is only a 8.5 percent scale model with a 21 foot wingspan, but engineers at NASA’s Dryden Flight Research Center were able to demonstrate the tailless aircraft can be safely flown, and more importantly safely landed in a variety of conditions.

How To Make Penicillin

Did you know that penicillin can be grown outside of a lab? This mold-based antibiotic can be grown as a science project using a slice of bread. Please note that these instructions should be used for experimentation only; when there is a medical need for penicillin, it should be obtained through a doctor. Making penicillin does require some scientific equipment, and it is very important to keep the area sterile while you are growing penicillin. Here’s how to make penicillin.
