Model Maker Uses Cheap Camera to do Wonders!

Michael Paul Smith has spent a large part of the last 25 years pursuing his passion – making miniature models and photographing them to create an incredible gallery of vintage car photos. He has actually made up a fictional, sleepy, 1950s American called \”Elgin Park\”, which he has slowly been creating through his photographs.

As an expert model maker, Smith\’s model can will pass even the closest scrutiny, which is what allows him to make such realistic looking photos, placing them in miniature dioramas and using forced perpective and parts of the real world to make his little scenes come to life. The result is a re-write of history, a work of fiction that faithfully reproduces scenes from a time gone by.

And the kick is, Michael doesn\’t even use an expensive camera, just a $250 one that anyone can buy (14-megapixel Canon SX280).


Army Issued Him A Jock Strap

1After a long night of making love, the guy notices a photo of another man, on the woman’s nightstand by the bed. He begins to worry.

‘Is this your husband?’ he nervously asks.

‘No, silly,’ she replies, snuggling up to him.

‘Your boyfriend, then?’ he continues.

‘No, not at all,’ she says, nibbling away at his ear.

‘Is it your dad or your brother?’ he inquires, hoping to be reassured.

‘No, no, no! You are so hot when you’re jealous!’ she answers.

‘Well, who in the hell is he, then?’ he demands.

She whispers in his ear, ‘That’s me, before my sex-change surgery.’


Clean can be funny.

One day, a man came home, and was greeted by his wife, dressed in a very sexy nightie. ‘Tie me up,’ she purred, ‘and you can do anything, you want.’

So he tied her up, and went away to play golf, with his golfing buddies.


A woman came home, screeching her car into the driveway, and ran into the house. She slammed the door, and shouted at the top of her lungs, ‘Honey! Pack your bags. I won the lottery!’

The husband shouted back, ‘Oh my God!? What should I pack? Beach stuff or mountain stuff?’

‘Doesn’t matter, Honey!’ she said, ‘Just get the f**k out of here.’


Marriage is a relationship, in which one person is always right, and the other, is a husband.


A Polish immigrant, went to the DMV, to apply for a driver’s license.

First, of course, he had to take an eye sight test.

The optician showed him a card, with the letters, ‘C Z W I X N O S T A C Z.’ ‘

Can you read this?’ the optician asked.

‘Read it?’ the Polish guy replied, ‘This guys my neighbour!’


Mother Superior called all the nuns together, and said to them, ‘I must tell you all, something. We have a case of Gonorrhea, in the convent.’

‘Thank God,’ said an elderly nun, at the back. ‘I’m so sick of the Chardonnay.’


A wife was making a breakfast, of fried eggs for her husband.

Suddenly, her husband burst into the kitchen. ‘Careful,’ he said, ‘CAREFUL! Put in some more butter! Oh my gosh! You are cooking too many, at once?! TOO MANY! Turn them! TURN THEM NOW! We need more butter. Oh my gosh!? WHERE are we going to get, MORE BUTTER?! They are going to STICK! Careful. CAREFUL! I said be CAREFUL! You NEVER listen to me, when you are cooking?! Never! Turn them! Hurry up! Are you CRAZY? Have you LOST your mind? Don’t forget to salt them. You know you always forget, to salt them. Use the Salt! USE THE SALT! THE SALT!’

The wife stared at him, and asked, ‘What in the world, is wrong with you!? Do you think that I don’t know how to fry, a couple of eggs?!’

The husband calmly replied, ‘I just wanted to show you, what it feels like, when I’m driving.’


Fifty-one years ago, Herman James, a North Carolina mountain man, was drafted by the Army.

On his first day in basic training, the Army issued him a comb. That afternoon, the Army barber sheared off, all his hair.

On his second day, the Army issued Herman a toothbrush. That afternoon, the Army dentist yanked out seven of his teeth.

On the third day, the Army issued him, a jock strap. The Army has been looking for Herman, for 51 years.

How Exercise Improves Heart Health: Must Compare to Medications

Rehabilitate Your Heart

I couldn’t agree more, or write it any better than this post by Dr. Mercola on the benefits of Exercise for the Heart Health. I especially like the discussion about how it should be compared to medication studies. I have regularly heard at Cardiac Rehabilitation conferences about the benefits of exercise can be similar or better to the use of stents for treating heart disease.

How Exercise Improves your Heart Health

By Dr. Mercola

Did you know that exercise is one of the safest, most effective ways to prevent and treat chronic diseases such as heart disease?

This common-sense advice was again confirmed in a meta-review conducted by researchers at Harvard University and Stanford University,1 which compared the effectiveness of exercise versus drug interventions on mortality outcomes for four common conditions:

  • Diabetes
  • Coronary heart disease
  • Heart failure
  • Stroke

After reviewing 305 randomized controlled trials, which included nearly 339,300 people…
