Shotgun Flower Shell

shotgun is designed to kill or maim. there is no need for argument about that aspect, but with the Shotgun Flower Shell, a shotgun can actually be used to give life instead of taking away life. so how is it even possible, you may ask. well, the magic lies in the shell, which from the external is no different from any standard 12 gauge shell, but within it is packed with seeds instead of slug or shots, thereby with each shot, you will be spreading life. naturally, a regular shotgun ammunition will be a little overwhelming for the flower seeds, but the creator of this lovely shell has purposely reduced the amount of gunpowder and adjusted to fit the different seeds. in all, there are twelve different kind of seeds to choose from, they include Columbine, Cornflower, Daisy, Poppy (!), Sunflower, Lavender, Sweet Pea, Lupine, Carnation, Peony and a collection of meadow flowers.

Honda Mean Mower

when it comes to lawn mower, a little brute horsepower won’t hurt, but speed is almost never on the agenda. but the Honda Mean Mower you see here, defies the convention. developed in collaboration with Team Dynamics, Honda UK’s British Touring Car Championship partner, this lean mean lawn trimmer puts out 109 horses and 96 Nm of torque from its 1,000cc Honda VTR Firestorm and is fitted with six-speed gearbox which enables it to sprint from 0-60 mph in just 4 seconds and well on its way to a 133 mph (214 km/h) top speed. while externally, it retains the Honda HF2620 Lawn Tractor body that it is based on, other bits are all but new. it is given an all-new custom chromoly chassis, a Scorpion exhaust system (that gives it the incredible 130db scream at its peak), a Morris Minor steering rack, a custom-made paddle shift, a custom-made Cobra sports seat (no harness though), a bespoke suspension and ATV wheels wrapped in super-soft tires for optimum grip and handling on tarmac.
