Most Unusual Buildings

Dancing House

Dancing House

Here’s a building that should really get your attention when walking pass it. The Dancing House is considered as one of the more real controversial buildings in Prague. The DH was actually designed by a great architect from California, which only proves that he had done some type of hallucinogen while designing it.

Robot Building

Robot Building

The Bank of Asia is a very famous building in Bangkok. It was made way back in 1985, and its robotic appearance is just a symbol of the modernization of banking. It also has the ability to transform into a mega-robot. So, if Godzilla ever decided to show his green face in the land of Bangkok, they would have to fight!

Ripley's Building

Ripley’s Building

If you saw this picture for the first time, you’d probably thought that it was hit by a massive earthquake. But it wasn’t. In true fashion of the Ripley Legacy, it was built to reflect the odd 1812 earthquake that measured 8.0 on the rick. The building has now become one of the most photographed in the world because of it.

The Wilson Hall

The Wilson Hall

This somewhat modernize building was actually built between 1971 and 1974. Its unique design gives the Wilson Hall a great sense of structure, and a prominent landmark for the skyline. The building provides big laboratories, offices, and supports space for over 1500 scientists. And it houses all kinds of strange experiments.

135 Degree Angle House

135 Degree Angle

This bizarre house really doesn’t have an official name, but it does have a 135 degree angle. So that’s what we’re going to call it. Unfortunately, the only info we have about this house is that it was built in China or Japan. And that it has a silly pink roof. And if you look real close, you’ll notice that its on a 135 degree damn angle.

Hotel Sofitel

Hotel Sofitel

This hotel’s unique design was directly inspired by the traditional temples in Japan. The Tokyo Sofitel has over 72 rooms, and 11 suites with 3 non-smoking floors. And 5 meeting rooms that includes high-tech boardrooms. Please realize that you have to sell your soul in order to step foot inside this amazing hotel.

Triangle Building

Triangle Building

We wonder what type of work goes on inside this kind of a building. The unofficial Triangle Building is just a wonder to look at and to ponder over. But, can this be one of the evil headquarters for Scientology or Starbucks? Does this building have triangle bathrooms? There’s so many damn questions!

The Astra Haus

The Astra Haus

The strange building is actually a brewery in Hamburg, Germany. The floors can move up or down on its skinny column core. As of now, the unique building has been destroyed. One of its more famous beer brands was recently bought by a big refreshment corporation. And that beer brand was called Astra.

Upside Downer

Upside Downer

Take a journey into the unknown with a building called Wonder Works. Its central Florida’s only upside down attraction. And an amusement park for your mind, and your stoner friends. This odd building has over 100 wacky interactive exhibits for your entire family to experience. But make sure you free your weed before coming.

Crooked House

Crooked House

You know that your looking at a real building right? The Crooked House was built in 2004 as an addition at a popular shopping center, and is a major tourist attraction in Sopot, Poland. We just wonder what happens when someone who’s under a controlled substance sees this building for the first time in their life.

TRACKING!!

Posted on: Saturday 9 February 2008 | Category: IT Anak Rumahan | post comment

Sadar port 5050 (chatting) di blok ma IT angkuh kantor, gw jadi ngeradang. YM-an jadi ga bisa lagi n jadi ga bisa konek ma temen gw (padahal gw chat untuk omongan yang penting).

Setelah googling2 lagi dikit, ternyata kita tetap bisa chat ke YM pake port 80 (web). So, musti nginstall lagi program yang namanya HTTP Tunnel.

Parah nya, berhubung gw pake servis yang gratisan, dampaknya tiap 1 jam YM pasti di-disconnect. Ini namanya belum dapet solusi. Akhirnya (terpaksa) googling lagi

Finaly.. . ada temen ngasih tau ada situs yang bisa ngebuka YM kita, so chat tetep bisa jalan. coba cek (www.meebo.com). Google useless yah… kehkehkeh

Jre ng!!!! YM jalan. IT ga bisa ngeblok coz aktivitas buka2 web (buka2 yahoo mail n google mail) adalah sarana bagi semua karyawan di sini, termasuk gw.

Singkatnya, kita memakai jalur web buat chat di komputer, meskipun jalur buat chat udah diblok ma IT. Okeh cukup review-nya, akhir nya gw mulai akrab ma situs meebo.com ini.

meebo

Ternyata YM-an pake meebo tu cuma bisa connect ma temen2 yang udah ada di list
kita aja. So kita ga bisa nge-room di Jakarta Global Chat or Bandung 2 or whatever room lainnya… Ah tapi begini aja gw udah cukup puas.

Setelah sekian lama utak-atik, ternyata meebo juga punya room tersendiri yang bisa diakses sama usernya. Contoh roomnya antara lain kayak “From Jakarta Suit Pages” dan “Garut” -nah room yg terakhir gara2 diajakin ma temen gw orang Sunda-Jawa.

Di room itulah gw biasa ma temen gw masuk ke sono. ngobrol2 gak karuan malem2. ngilangin stress abis di omelin ma bos. n ngeluarin ide-ide yang ga ada maksudnya (haiyah). Lumayan juga kalo dipikir2.

Sampai sini gw kira ga ada masalah… gak ada masalah….!!! Sampai pada suatu ketika, prahara itu datang (jah). ga sengaja iseng2 gw googling ID user nama gw pake buat chat di meebo,

M a k…

meebo buat track chatting kita, semacam rekaman hasil chatting yang dipublish buat umum (buktinya gw bisa akses dengan mudah). Udah mana waktu itu gw ngomong rada2 SARA lagi. Kampret banget!!! Ah tapi sudahlah, ni pelajaran buat yang lain

NB:
setelah googling lagi, nemu juga sites ebuddy (model2 meebo juga). Nah yang ini gw ga tau tracking juga apa nggak, kayaknya sih nggak.

Oh ya, temen gw yang rekomendasiin buat buka meebo adalah IT di 1nd*v151*n. Sama kya gw, punya job vital, tapi gaji kayak buruh (ups sory koh). Rekomendasi lo buruk bro!!!

Temen gw yang ngajak buka2 room garut, temen di sebelah meja yang suka ngajak becanda (gw sih yg ngajak). Tapi, kalo ga da dia, pasti gw ga bakalan tahan gawe di sini. tuh kan jadi curhat.

Komentar Tentang Muhammad

Posted on: Saturday 9 February 2008 | Category: Religius | post comment
Washington Irving
(1783-1859) Well-known as the “first American man of letters”.
He was sober and abstemious in his diet, and a rigorous observer of fasts. He indulged in no magnificence of apparel, the ostentation of a petty mind; neither was his simplicity in dress affected, but the result of a real disregard to distinction from so trivial a source … In his private dealings he was just. He treated friends and strangers, the rich and poor, the powerful and the weak, with equity, and was beloved by the common people for the affability with which he received them, and listened to their complaints … His military triumphs awakened no pride nor vain glory, as they would have done had they been effected for selfish purposes. In the time of his greatest power he maintained the same simplicity of manners and appearance as in the days of his adversity. So far from affecting regal state, he was displeased if, on entering a room, any unusual testimonial of respect were shown to him.
*Life of Mahomet*, London, 1889, pp. 192-3, 199
Annie Besant
(1847-1933) British theosophist and nationalist leader in India & President of the Indian National Congress in 1917.*
It is impossible for anyone who studies the life and character of the great Prophet of Arabia, who knows how he taught and how he lived, to feel anything but reverence for that mighty Prophet, one of the great messengers of the Supreme. And although in what I put to you I shall say many things which may be familiar to many, yet I myself feel whenever I re-read them, a new way of admiration, a new sense of reverence for that mighty Arabian teacher.
*The Life And Teachings Of Muhammad*, Madras, 1932, p. 4
Edward Gibbon
(1737-1794) Considered the greatest British historian of his time.
His (i.e., Muhammad’s) memory was capacious and retentive, his wit easy and social, his imagination sublime, his judgment clear, rapid and decisive. He possessed the courage of both thought and action.
*History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire*, London, 1838, vol.5, p.335
Michael H. Hart
Professor of astronomy, physics and the history of science
My choice of Muhammad to lead the list of the world’s most influential persons may surprise some readers and may be questioned by others, but he was the only man in history who was supremely successful on both the religious and secular level.
*The 100: A Ranking Of The Most Influential Persons In History*, New York, 1978, p. 33
William Montgomery Watt
Professor (Emeritus) of Arabic and Islamic Studies at the University of Edinburgh.
His readiness to undergo persecutions for his beliefs, the high moral character of the men who believed in him and looked up to him as leader, and the greatness of his ultimate achievement – all argue his fundamental integrity. To suppose Muhammad an impostor raises more problems than it solves. Moreover, none of the great figures of history is so poorly appreciated in the West as Muhammad.
*Mohammad At Mecca*, Oxford, 1953, p. 52
Alphonse de Lamartine
(1790-1869) French poet and statesman.
Philosopher, orator, apostle, legislator, warrior, conqueror of ideas, restorer of rational dogmas, of a cult without images; the founder of twenty terrestrial empires and of one spiritual empire, that is Muhammad. As regards all standards by which human greatness may be measured, we may well ask, is there any man greater than he?
Translated from* Histoire De La Turquie*, Paris, 1854, vol. II, pp. 276-277
Reverend Bosworth Smith
(1794-1884) Late Fellow of Trinity College, Oxford.
He was Caesar and Pope in one; but he was Pope without the Pope’s pretensions, and Caesar without the legions of Caesar. Without a standing army, without a bodyguard, without a palace, without a fixed revenue, if ever any man had the right to say that he ruled by a right Divine, it was Mohammed; for he had all the power without its instruments and without its supports.
*Mohammed and Mohammedanism*, London, 1874, p. 235
Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi
(1869-1948) Indian thinker, statesman, and nationalist leader.
I became more than ever convinced that it was not the sword that won a place for Islam in those days in the scheme of life. It was the rigid simplicity, the utter self-effacement of the prophet, the scrupulous regard for his pledges, his intense devotion to his friends and followers, his intrepidity, his fearlessness, his absolute trust in God and in his own mission. These, and not the sword carried everything before them and surmounted every trouble.
*Young India* (periodical), 1928, Volume X
Edward Gibbon
(1737-1794) Considered the greatest British historian of his time.
The greatest success of Mohammad’s life was effected by sheer moral force without the stroke of a sword.
*History Of The Saracen Empire*, London, 1870
John William Draper
(1811-1882) American scientist, philosopher, and historian.
Four years after the death of Justinian, A.D. 569, was born at Mecca, in Arabia the man who, of all men exercised the greatest influence upon the human race . . . Mohammed.
*A History of the Intellectual Development of Europe*, London, 1875, vol.1, pp. 329-330
David George Hogarth
(1862-1927) English archaeologist, author, and keeper of the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford.
Serious or trivial, his daily behaviour has instituted a canon which millions observe this day with conscious mimicry. No one regarded by any section of the human race as Perfect Man has been imitated so minutely. The conduct of the Founder of Christianity has not so governed the ordinary life of His followers. Moreover, no Founder of a religion has been left on so solitary an eminence as the Muslim Apostle.
*Arabia*, Oxford, 1922, p. 52
