The Basket Building (United States)
The Dancing House (Czech Republic)
The radical design was controversial at the time without surprise. Czech president Vaclav Havel, who lived for decades next to the site, had firmly supported it, hoping that the building would eventually become a hub of cultural activity. Originally named Fred and Ginger (after Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers - the house vaguely resembles a pair of dancers) the house stands out among the Neo-Baroque, Neo-Gothic and Art Nouveau buildings for which Prague is famous.
On the roof is a French restaurant with magnificent views of the city. The building’s other tenants include several multinational firms. (The plans for a cultural center were not realized.) Because it is situated next to a very busy road, air circulation inside the building is less than ideal, which makes the interior somewhat less pleasant for its occupants.

Eva Mendes steaming up the walls with her classy calendar photoshoot. She is another one of those celebrities that is highly characterized by their obvious (sexy) moles on the face. She has been quoted saying that she will not hesitate to get plastic surgery done when her perfect figure starts to sag.

Seriously I feel sorry for her. With a name like that, I can only imagine the amount of jokes played on her. But thank goodness, she seems to have turned out fine, in fact more than fine! She was born on 30 December 1987 and lives in Romford, Essex, UK. She has that hot, Asian, Cindy Crawford mole thing going for her that quite literally blows! Some funny quote from her:

You are driving along in your car on a wild, stormy night, when you pass by a bus stop, and you see three people waiting for the bus:
1. An old lady who looks as if she is about to die.
2. An old friend who once saved your life.
3. The perfect partner you have been dreaming about.
Which one would you choose to offer a ride to, knowing that there could only be one passenger in your car?
Think before you continue reading…
This is a moral/ethical dilemma that was once actually used as part of a job application. You could pick up the old lady, because she is going to die, and thus you should save her first; Or, you could take the old friend because he once saved your life, and this would be the perfect chance to
The candidate who was hired (out of 200 applicants) had no trouble coming up with his answer. He simply answered: “I would give the car keys to my old friend and let him take the lady to the hospital. I would stay behind and wait for the bus with the partner of my dreams.”
Sometimes, we gain more if we are able to give up our stubborn thought limitations. Never forget to “Think Outside of the Box.”
However, The correct answer is to run the old lady over and put her out of her misery, have sex with the perfect partner against the bus stop sign, then drive off with the old friend for some beers.
