    This is the clock at the Ham Yard Hotel in London. It has 135 smaller clocks synchronized to create mesmerizing geometric patterns in between displaying the time in big block numbers. I could watch it all day. Paint drying and grass growing too. I'm a simple man. "You're b... / Continue →

    This is the anti-public urination sign spotted near the Hotel Marcinčák in Mikulov, Czech Republic. It threatens public pissers with the shame of a video of them doing the deed being posted to Youtube. Do they even have a camera installed? No clue. But one blogger plans on ... / Continue →

    The Kerry Hotel in Shanghai created this million-ball ball pit by filling an 82-foot x 41-foot wide (25m x 13m) swimming pool with green and pink balls to raise awareness for breast cancer prevention (get those titties checked, ladies). I could spend all day Scrooge McDucking ... / Continue →

    So we've already heard about Intergalactic Suites, the space hotel that's supposed to open NEXT YEAR, but here comes another one. This time from Russia. With love? Probably not, but hopefully with escape pod. Called the CSS (Commercial Space Station) it will be built 217 ... / Continue →

    Note: Low-res shots are after the jump but there's some much more worthwhile high-res shots HERE, HERE and HERE in cause you want to use your Bat-Goggles to scan the scene for semen stains. This is the Eden Hotel's Batman suite in Kaohsiung City, Taiwan. It costs $50 per 3-ho... / Continue →

    But it was just an old horror movie set! But did that stop police from spending 8-hours overtime investigating the scene before realizing it was fake? You can bet your rubber severed leg and Karo-syrup blood it didn't! Firefighters who responded to a hotel blaze stumbled upo... / Continue →

    If you haven't heard already, Las Vegas is a dangerous place. And not just because you can lose your life savings and contract something from a prosty in the same weekend, but that shit happened to a couple of my friends and now I won't drink after them. Except alcohol. That... / Continue →

    Holiday Inn, best known for putting me up last night and providing me with the sleep I needed to pilot my flight back home this morning, is now offering a complementary human bed warming service at its London Kensington location (pissing will still cost extra). If requested, a... / Continue →

    This is Vince "Punchahook" Shlomi selling ShamWows in Spanish. And yes, it's every bit as "I want to beat him till he bleeds" as it sounds. Even worse. I actually put my monitor in a choke-hold just watching it. Now tap out or you're dead. I mean it! Vince Tries To Sell ... / Continue →

    The Hotelicopter is allegedly real, although I have some serious doubts (especially if you go to THIS PAGE and see how they're hocking some renderings as real "test flight" pictures). That, and we're two days to April 1st. Still, it might be (but it's totally not). Experie... / Continue →

    Let's face it, we all want to live in treehouses. Unfortunately, I purchased all the remaining trees on earth, so it looks like you suckers are out of luck. Hey, there's always telephone poles. Also, I will be selling acorns for $1,000 a pop. Anyway, this is a treehouse hot... / Continue →

    There are few joys in life like laughing at some poor bastard's misfortune. Which is why I loved this video so much. Unfortunately, it's fake and actually an ad for Cisco's Integrated Communications or some such poppycock. I know, major letdown. It's still worth a viewing t... / Continue →

    The Airbus A380 is a $300 million, 7-story plane that's as long as two blue whales and 260 ft from wingtip to wingtip. And, apparently, it's a flying resort. The A380 is the ultimate in luxury. It has three decks: the top two for passengers and the lower one available for a m... / Continue →

    I watched this video a couple of times so needless to say I'm making this post from under the bed. It's allegedly a video of a ghost in a Singapore hotel's elevator (let it load and skip to 1:20 to see the goods). I'm sure it's fake as all hell. Right? It's fake right? Goo... / Continue →

    This structure is being built in Baku, Azerbaijan (an ex-Soviet country between Russian and Iran). Now I'm a firm believer in honesty being the best policy, so why they're trying to construct this under the guise that it's to be the "Full Moon" Hotel is a mystery to me. Just ... / Continue →

    While not the first underwater hotel, the one being built in Istanbul does promise some questionable views. The seven-story hotel is being built in the Istanbul Bosporus Straight, where the visibility underwater is allegedly only 10 feet. So you can forget about any view like... / Continue →

    There are a number of reasons why one might not get a good night's sleep. At the top of my list are a wife that sleeps too close, two dogs that prevent me from stretching my legs out, and three cats that want to rub their a-holes on my face all hours of the night. Itchiness is ... / Continue →

    The 'Manned Cloud' airship is being produced, and could be operational by next year. The helium filled craft is going to have 60 hotel rooms, cruise at 173mph, and travel the globe on non-stop 3 day journeys. No word on how much a trip will be, but I imagine in the ‘expensive... / Continue →

    Texas based Bearfire Resort is using Snowflex, a polymer-based snow substitute, to cover its ski trails. The resort hopes to be operational by '09, and will offer year round skiing and snowboarding. So yeah, that's wack. It just won't be the same urinating your name in the s... / Continue →

    The video above is a demonstration of Philip's new Dynamic Daylight Windows. It's awesome. Even more awesome if you're on drugs. By waving your hand around you can adjust the level of darkness, as well as color hue. I want them installed in all my windows. Apparently hot... / Continue →
