Garden mania:

A unique gardening competition in Japan is known as the Kei Truck Garden Contest. In it, competitors use the bed of a Kei Truck (or kei-tora) as the canvas for their creations. These small trucks are well-known in Asia for use in construction and agriculture. Once a year, competitors meet at the designated location with an empty truck. Then, they begin their creative projects and soon the truck beds are filled with soil, greenery, flowers, pebble paths, waterfalls, benches, and even aquariums. The mini-garden creations are ranked by a panel of judges who name a winner.

Big Burger:


Those who enjoy eating great big burgers might want to visit Chris Steaks and Burgers in Bangkok, Thailand. The burger in question is enormous. The ground beef or pork patty weighs six kilograms (13 lbs.) and is loaded with fattening extras, such as bacon, mayonnaise, and onion rings. Lomdech Kongsuwan, the restaurant owner, is offering 10,000 baht to any diner able to gobble up the meal in nine minutes. So far, very few customers have been able to accomplish the feat.

Weird weather forecast:


Watch out! It might rain iguanas! Weather forecasters in the state of Florida (U.S.) aren’t kidding when they make this prediction. A cold snap in the area that usually is warm can stun these reptiles. If they are in a tree when that happens, the creatures could fall out. But locals know not to worry about the health of the iguanas that lie on the ground after falling from their perches. Once the temperature warms up, they are able to move again, and they get up and walk away.

Big Book:


Paper-making experts Bela Varga and his son Gábor Varga, of the tiny village of Szinpetri in northern Hungary, made what is thought to be the world’s largest handmade book. The duo’s book measures 4.18 x 3.77 metres (13.7 x 12.4 ft.) and weighs 1,420 kilograms (3,130 lbs.). Its 346 pages are filled with information and photos about the flora and fauna of the region. On display at the Szinpetri paper mill, the book had to be lowered into place with a crane. So as not to rip the paper when reading, six people are needed to turn one of the enormous pages. The name of the book is Our Fragile Natural Heritage.

Billboard love:


Whether or not he ends up finding love, Mark Rofe certainly has a sense of humour. The 30-something single man from Sheffield, England, recently rented a billboard to suggest that interested individuals contact him if they’d like to go on a date. Rofe had tried the usual online dating methods, to no avail. So he paid £425 to advertise on the roadside space, on a busy street in the city of Manchester. The billboard states: “Date Mark. This could be the sign you’ve been waiting for,” followed by his website address.

Painter’s message:

A house painter in Bolsover, Derbyshire, England, hadn’t been paid for the work he’d done on a building, so he took matters into his own hands. On the front of the freshly painted, cream-coloured, two-story structure, Dean Reeves painted a message in black: “Want your house painting? Don’t be like Terry. Pay the bill! Now you will!” According to Reeves, building owner Terry Turner had continually refused to pay all of the agreed upon amount until the painter completed extra tasks. When Reeves understood what the owner was doing, he decided to paint the message.
