While I’d never wish a break-up on anyone, it has always seemed a matter of time before Jordan and Peter Andre split up.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not writing this because I’m interested in them or their lives. I am, however going to take this opportunity to remind us all of the level of inanity that these two perma-tan nutters achieved when their daughter was born.

They named her Princess Tiaamii. And as if that isn’t enough of a mouthful, they managed to compound the situation by explaining their choice of names.
Jordan explained: “the first name was chosen because the girl was our princess.”
And, to trump that they revealed that Peter came up with the middle name (Tiaamii, just in case you’ve stopped laughing) by combining his mother’s name (Thea) with that of Jordan’s mother (Amy).
And it just keeps getting better. In her own words: “We’ve put an accent over the first ‘A’ to make it more exotic and two Is at the end just to make it look a bit different.”
Nice.
And further on in the priceless article it states: “Jordan also revealed that she had considered calling the girl Tinkerbell, but rejected the idea because too many celebrities had chosen it for their dogs.”
So look out for a son called Peter Pan, or possibly Gandalf, with her next boyfriend.

Just when you thought it was safe to assume that you’d seen everything from those of a religious persuasion they go and manage to trump themselves.
They’ve made a statue of Jesus out of Lego bricks that is almost 6 feet (1.78 metres) tall. You can see what it looks like below.

The good people of the congregation donated 30,000 bricks. And then they spent one and a half years making the model.
I’ll just repeat that last part (as if the whole thing isn’t bonkers enough). They spent a year and a half creating it.
It just looks like a marble statue that’s been pixelated badly.
Read the whole article here and enjoy some of the other staggering facts.

I don’t mean to be unkind (because this sort of behaviour, frankly, keeps them out of our road) but what else could they have achieved with a year and a half of their time?
“And Jesus said ‘Lo, you will go forth and make a really big, pointless effigy of me in little plastic modelling bricks’. And it was so.”
It’s in Sweden, so make sure you don’t happen past and accidentally trip.
What is it Christians say about forgiveness again? I’ll bet that would test their ability to forgive and be divine.

Here’s a great piece of perspective from a pretty talented artist. She’s called Sara Watson and she’s studying at the University of Central Lancashire.

Now you see it...

Now you see it...

She was thinking about the concept of illusion and decided to use a batterd old Skoda to make her point.
She spent three weeks (dedicated or mental?) making the car disappear. Watch the reveal here on the BBC site.

Obviously it uses perspective to achieve the illusion, but that’s what magicians and illusionists have been doing for years.
It’s like the chalk artists that you seen on the high street, the ones where unless you stand in the right spot you don’t ‘get’ what they’re doing. But once you do, well the effect can be breath-taking.
One of the best known is Julian Beever. He travels the world and makes images that almost defy belief. Here’s one he did earlier:

You can visit his site here. He’s got a pretty wide range of styles, from originals to reproductions of old masters and his 3D pieces.

There’s a really good lesson to learn from these masters of illusion.
And that is: what they do is a bit like life – how it is depends on how you look at it.
