Stacy Keibler's 30 Year Old Legs At A LG Mobile Phones Party

There was a party for LG Mobile Phones this week and Stacy Keibler was there with her legs conveniently exposed as if she knew we were jonesing for a gallery from her. Many of you new Busted Coverage readers have no idea that Stacy is dear to our hearts since we were one of the first eBayers to ever purchase one of her auction items. Yep, that is going to be a man cave conversation piece – soon. Anyway, pictures. Here you go.

Anne Hathaway Is Catwoman!

Oh I like this! Christopher Nolan who is set to direct the next Batman movie, The Dark Knight Rises, announced today that he has cast Anne Hathaway as Catwoman in the film! “I am thrilled to have the opportunity to work with Anne Hathaway, who will be a fantastic addition to our ensemble as we complete our story.” Anne’s star certainly seems to be on the rise! I think she’ll be incredible as Catwoman! Nolan also revealed that Tom Hardy has been cast to play villain Bane; “I am delighted to be working with Tom again and excited to watch him bring to life our new interpretation of one of Batman’s most formidable enemies.” Christian Bale of course will play the title role in the movie. So what do you think about Anne Hathaway donning the famous Catwoman catsuit?!

Alessandra Ambrosio Rocks a Bikini For a Day of Surfing and Sun in Hawaii

Alessandra Ambrosio hit the beach in a two-piece Saturday in Hawaii. She's off on a family vacation with her fiancé Jamie Mazur and their young daughter, Anja. The afternoon on the sand included a bit of surfing for Alessandra before she retired to a deck chair with Anja. It was apparently great fun for Alessandra, who tweeted, "surfing in Waikiki is just amazing!" We last saw Alessandra Ambrosio in her bikini earlier this Summer, in May, during a Memorial Day stroll in Malibu with her family and little dog. There's been lots of work for Alessandra since then. She hit the CFDA Awards in June and then went to her home country of Brazil to shoot ads for Colcci alongside Ashton Kutcher. Alessandra is resting up now, though, writing yesterday on Twitter, "Hawaii, sunset, spa — so relaxing!"

Kylie Jenner Is On-Trend for Fall in Burgundy Leather Pants

Kylie Jenner rocked two of fall’s hottest styles rolled into one stylish pair of oxblood leather skinnies on Tuesday. Letting her fashion-forward bottoms be the center of attention, Jenner kept her overall look minimalistic, pairing a sheer black tank and pointy-toe pumps with her statement pants. The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star, 15, who was snapped en route to the Justin Bieber concert in Los Angeles, Calif., nailed the perfect mix of cool and comfy in her rocker-inspired ensemble. What gave Jenner’s outfit an edge? The model and reality star amped up her simple ensemble with metallic accents — a chain-strapped pocketbook, chunky necklace, and stylish watch — that coordinated with those on her pants and furthered the rocker vibe.

The World’s Most Spectacular Roads

For those who consider the journey to be as important as the destination, road trips have long provided amazing views and a sense of adventure. Below are some of the world’s most spectacular roads. Fair warning to viewers: these images are shockingly attractive and have been known to induce wanderlust in those who gaze upon them.

The Denge Sound Mirrors: Radar’s Predecessor

Before the application of radar became a reality a number of experimental early warning systems were developed by the British military. One which showed the most promise – as it actually worked – were the acoustic mirrors built at Denge on the south coast of England. Quickly superseded by radar they were abandoned but still remain at their post, obsolete concrete leviathans on an island in the middle of a nature reserve, reminders of a dangerous time in European history. The mirror would pick up the sound of any aircraft approaching the coast of the UK. If they were not scheduled (and flights in and out of the country were closely monitored) then they could be judged as possibly being enemy aircraft. Sound waves were caught in the focal point of the mirror and relayed though microphones to an operator, who could then alert the appropriate authorities. The mirrors were able to give a fifteen minute warning of an approaching assault on the England.

122 Brilliant and Blinding Blow Outs

99.99% of our photography falls within a certain acceptable range of exposure—one filled with color and detail. Last week's Shooting Challenge was dedicated to the rare .01% that's blinded by the light. The resulting shots are incredible.

Farmer Builds 36ft Meerkat Sculpture From Bales Of Straw

At 36ft tall and made out of straw, this impressive sculpture of a meerkat is anything but ‘simples’. Proudly looking out over motorists in rural Nantwich, the statue is built on a 6ft base and has lights in its eyes. The meerkat, made popular thanks to an insurance company's TV adverts, is 30 times bigger than a real-life creature, and is the latest in a long line of impressive works of art. Each year, staff at Snugburys Ice Cream Farm, Hurleston, celebrate the summer with a new design. The concept started in 1998 with a huge Millennium Dome sculpture and has also seen a straw replica of the Lovell telescope, London Eye as well as last year’s Big Ben standing beside the A51 near Chester. Director Chris Sadler and his wife Cheryl come up with the ideas and the creations are made by Mike Harper, who builds a steel skeleton which is then stuffed with hay.

Highway Identity Theft: How Thieves Clone Cars

Car cloning is a phrase you may not have heard, but better be aware of! Car cloning is happening around the United States, and could easily happen to your vehicle if you aren’t careful. Read this infographic to learn how to safeguard one of your most precious items, and why people are cloning cars for cash.

2012 Dodge Charger SRT8

Dodge has dropped the Street and Racing Technology motherlode on the eve of the Chicago Auto Show and first out of the gate is the 2012 Dodge Charger SRT8 – what Eminem should've rolled in during the Super Bowl. As with anything birthed from Chrysler's in-house tuning division, the Charger SRT8 is all about the engine, so the transformation begins with the new 6.4-liter HEMI V8 putting out 465 horsepower and 465 pound-feet of torque – a boost of some 80 lb-ft over the old 6.1-liter mill. That torquey wave comes on at 2,900 rpm and Dodge claims that with the fitment of its Fuel Saver tech, allowing the engine to run on four cylinders when its not under load, fuel economy will improve, although Dodge isn't saying how much. Chrysler's W5A580 five-speed automatic transmission backs up the HEMI, and you can select your own gears by either slapping the AutoStick or thumbing the steering wheel-mounted paddle-shifters.

How Patriotic is Your Car?

As a kid, I enjoyed the warm weather and watching fireworks on the Fourth of July, but as an automotive journalist, it makes me think about buying American. It’s easy to assume that a Chevrolet is more American than a Honda, but many foreign automakers have plants that manufacture vehicles here in the U.S., and buying a car or truck that supports domestic workers may not be as simple as buying an American brand. Each year, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration details the percentage of U.S. and Canadian parts used in vehicles under the American Automobile Labeling Act. You may think that you’re buying American, but sometimes choosing an import might put more money back into the U.S. economy.

The Pontiac Firebird That Could Have Been

Michigan-based Exodus Films unveiled the hero-ride for their upcoming sci-fi flick, Jinn. It's "The Firebreather," a stylized take on what a new Pontiac Firebird might've been. Look familiar? It should. Better news? They're building 50 of them for public purchase. The car was designed by the film's writer and director and Art Center grad AJ Ahmad, who wanted to tie the developing Michigan film industry to the state's history. The Firebreather will be the hero car in the movie, driven by the film's star Ray Park (aka Darth Maul) who was on hand for the unveiling. The car, built by Classic Design Concepts for the film, takes a new Camaro and gives it an all-new, and very handsomely-styled front end, an entirely new tail end with a new spoiler, new hood, some slick custom wheels, the Eibach Pro-Plus performance handling package a embroidered seats. Here's the best part — for Firebird fans who want something a little different, fifty numbered copies of The Firebreather are on sale as of right now with a starting price of $60,000.

Sweden Wants Your Trash

Move over Abba, Sweden has found new fame. The small Nordic country is breaking records — in waste. Sweden's program of generating energy from garbage is wildly successful, but recently its success has also generated a surprising issue: There is simply not enough trash. Only 4 percent of Swedish garbage ends up in a landfill, according to Swedish Waste Management. Due to its efficiency in converting waste to renewable energy, Sweden has recently begun importing around 800,000 tons of trash annually from other countries.

Microwaved iPad 3G Surfaces On eBay, Called the EyePad

There's strange microwaves, and then there's things you shouldn't microwave. Apple's iPad 3G falls under the latter. Unfortunately, one 64GB specimen recently surfaced on eBay, and with an eyeball to boot. The seller says that the winning bidder "will receive a microwaved iPAD titled "eyePAD" beautifully encased in museum quality resin with stylish display stand signed and dated by the artist with a copy of the microwaving episode in which this iPAD was microwaved in."

Redbox Clarifies Plans For Subscription Based Streaming Netflix Rival

In a meeting with analysts, Redbox President Mitch Lowe reaffirmed the Coinstar-owned company’s plans to launch a Netflix “Watch Instantly” competitor this year. Coinstar CEO Paul Davis first confirmed the forthcoming service last year during an earnings call, though he would not specify whether the company’s Internet streaming service would utilize an all-you-can-eat pricing model or and a la carte model. Lowe has now confirmed that the service will be subscription-based, but he did not indicate price points for the service. Redbox currently owns and operates a large network of unmanned DVD rental kiosks located throughout the country.

How The Terminator's .45 Longslide With Laser Sighting Came To Be

While Arnie's one-handed reloads on his Winchester 1887 may make that shotgun the most iconic weapon of Terminator 2, his laser-sighted .45 Longslide was definitely king in the first. Laser sights are something you can buy in any gun shop today, but back in 1984 they were extremely rare -- and expensive. The one for the movie was custom made by SureFire, a company that specializes in tactical flashlights. Lasers at the time were helium neon, requiring a whopping 10,000 volts to power on and a constant 1,000 volts to stay bright. To manage this on a shoestring budget in the '80s the weapon had a wire running up Arnie's sleeve to a battery inside his jacket and a switch he had to activate with his other hand. Crude, but effective, and, most importantly, cheap -- SureFire representatives received only a T-shirt and some other assorted movie swag.
