    Animals Worth a Ton of Money

    August 18, 2019


    In no particular order, here are animals worth
    a ton of money! Wait until you find out why that liquid in
    the thumbnail is so valuable! 10 – Bear
    Bear Gallbladder?! Wait what! Yes, we’re in the same boat as you. We had no idea bear gallbladders are expensive. In places such as Korea, they were at one
    point selling for $15,000 dollars. In 2009, the market price for legally sold
    gallbladders in Hong Kong had risen to between $30,000 and $50,000 per kilogram! So why are gallbladders from bears in high
    demand? Unsurprisingly, it’s for medicinal benefits
    that science kinda backs up. Inside of a bear’s gallbladder is a whole
    lot of ursodeoxycholic acid, which breaks down molecules containing cholesterol. Apparently, this is an effective non surgical
    treatment for gallstones in humans. It also has shown promise in the treatment
    of Alzheimer’s disease. It’s kinda a big deal, but the thing is,
    it can be made synthetically. So people don’t need to harvest it from
    bears. And honestly, it’s way easier than getting
    it from a bear. 9 – Ambergris
    While we’re talking about waxy substances, let’s talk about Ambergris. Would this whale waste ever cross your mind? Probably not! The highest-quality ambergris is sold for
    a whopping Twenty thousand dollars per kilogram! Sperm whales produce an intestinal waste that
    bobs around the ocean for a while. Then it hardens, floats to the surface and
    some of it ends up on shore. This rock like substance it’s actually a
    super important part of the fragrance industry. High end brands such as Chanel use this substance
    to help make their fragrances. In the U.S, Ambergris is banned in the fragrance
    industry because Sperm Whales are endangered, but other countries such as France seem to
    be cool with it. Fresh ambergris is useless. Fresh ambergris is jet black in color, and
    it has a pliable, sticky texture. That and it basically smells like manure? So why would anyone want this in their fragrance?! Well, it lightens and smells better with age
    because of oxidation from the salt water in the ocean. Well, the smell is subjective, but hey, experts
    at Chanel think so. And that’s why, the lighter the color, the
    more valuable it becomes! 8 – Pangolin
    Before we get into how much the scales of a Pangolin cost, let’s talk about what a
    Pangolin is. Found in parts of Africa and Asia, they hold
    the distinction as the only mammals in the world with scales! And those scales are surprisingly valuable. Or maybe not surprisingly, because people
    will always want to grind something rare into a powder, cross their fingers, and hope it
    works for whatever problem they have! Pangolins are one of the most trafficked animals
    in the world because of the demand for their scales, which go for roughly $600 per kilogram. Some people believe their scales contain healing
    powers. Do we need to tell you guys that pangolin
    scales work about as good as healing crystals do? In some countries such as China, and Vietnam,
    they’re considered a delicacy. In southern China, a whole pangolin can go
    for up to $1,000 in restaurants! While most countries ban the Pangolin trade
    in an effort to conserve their shrinking population, it’s a tough task. Their scales look similar to fish and snakes,
    and the scales are often packaged with them for disguise. 7 – Cobra
    As one of the world’s most dangerous snakes, Cobras have some of the most toxic venom in
    the world. And the theme seems to be, the more venomous,
    the more valuable! And that’s totally true of the Cobra. Cobra venom is used to make life saving anti-venom. Making this anti-venom can be complicated. Typically it involves using a donor animal
    such as a horse or sheep. These donor animals get injected with the
    venom, and then their bodies produce antibodies. And that’s what’s given to someone that’s
    been bitten by well, a snake! So with that in mind, Cobra venom can cost
    roughly $153,000 per gallon. Of course, no snake is producing anywhere
    near that amount. We’re talking milligrams at a time! Aside from producing anti-venom, many different
    types of snake venom have a variety of different applications. For example, cobra venom has a compound that
    can be used to make a pain reducing medicine roughly 20 times more powerful than the strongest
    ones available on the market! 6 – Stag Beetle
    We bet you didn’t know that there used to be a Stag beetle price bubble! Back in 1999, a Japanese man paid NINETY THOUSAND
    dollars for an unusually large stag beetle! Of course, the bubble burst on the stag beetle
    market and nowadays, stag beetles don’t nearly go anywhere for that much. However, in Japan, there’s a Stag Beetle
    named Spike that’s extremely valuable. And it’s not for his size! It’s because he makes art that his owner
    sells! Spike’s art can sell for more than $1,100
    a pop. He even has his own twitter following, with
    more than 120 thousand followers! Spike lives with his owners in Japan and can
    hold all kinds of objects with his mandibles. This includes pens and markers, which he uses
    to draw. Now, this isn’t exactly Monet or Van Gogh
    level work here. But considering that it’s a stag Beetle,
    people are willing to cough up some cash for his work! Spike’s owner is an English teacher named
    Mandy. She first learned of Spike’s abilities when
    she was playing around with him one day by giving him various objects to hold onto. When she gave him a marker, to her surprise,
    he began drawing patterns! So she went on Twitter to tell her story,
    and soon after, Spike began gaining a following! Before you know it, he’s selling his own
    artwork. Whose with us on starting a Stag Beetle art
    factory?! 5 – Rhinoceros
    Rhinoceros are in high demand, and to be specific, it’s Rhino horns that people really want. Rhino horn can go for up to $60,000 per kilogram! The South African government placed a ban
    on the trade of rhino horns back in 2009 but that hasn’t stopped anything. Rhino horns have been sold on the global black
    market for years. One interesting little tidbit about these
    horns is that they’re made of keratin, which is the same material as human fingernails,
    so there’s no real use. But what’s driving the demand? Medicinal and recreational use of rhino horn
    comes mostly from Vietnam. Even if it’s just the same stuff as fingernails! The South African government lifted the ban
    on trade in 2017 in an attempt to reduce poaching and help save the rhino population. There are actually huge stockpiles of legally
    harvested horns. Some of these come from conservationists who
    have dehorned Rhinos to protect them. Plus, the government has confiscated a whole
    lot of horns from poachers that might as well be sold anyway. Aside from government regulations, there have
    been plenty of campaigns in Vietnam trying to stop the belief that rhino horn does anything. 4 – Totoaba Fish
    The Totoaba fish bladder is a delicacy in China! The bladder averages about 20 thousand dollars
    a kilogram! Found in the Gulf of California in Mexico,
    the Totoaba can grow up to six and a half feet long and weigh up to 220 pounds! Their meat is sold on the black market and
    can also be used to make soups. This market is partially driven by the false
    belief that bladders can cure skin, circulatory, cholesterol and fertility problems. In reality, it does none of these things. Since 1975, there’ve been laws against fishing
    Totoaba. In recent years, the Mexican government has
    been proactive in protecting these fish. But because it’s extremely expensive, only
    super rich people buy it. Enforcement is very weak because the issue
    isn’t a top priority to China and probably because it involves such rich and powerful
    people. The hunt for Totoabas has practically driven
    another species extinct. The vaquita is a rare porpoise that keeps
    getting caught in nets intended for totoabas! Watch our rarest animals video to find out
    more. 3 – Deathstalker Scorpion
    Generally speaking, Scorpion venom seems like a good thing to avoid. But it’s actually extremely valuable! So much so that scorpion venom can cost $39
    million dollars a gallon?! We’re supposed to believe that?! Well…….maybe. Say hello to the Deathstalker scorpion. Native to desert regions in North Africa to
    the Middle East, it’s considered to be one of the most venomous and most dangerous scorpions
    in the world. So why’s their venom so valuable? Their venom contains some compounds that are
    helping scientists develop breakthrough medicines. Chlorotoxins in the venom, for example, can
    be used to identify the size and locations of tumors. Also, the venom is rich in Kaliotoxins, which
    may help cure bone diseases. So that $39 million price tag we were talking
    about really isn’t relevant nor practical. A single scorpion produces just two milligrams
    of venom at a time. No one is exactly selling the stuff by the
    gallon, because to get the venom, the scorpions have to milked by hand. $130 will get your a droplet smaller than
    a grain of sugar! 2 – Horseshoe Crab
    Did you know Horseshoe Crab Blood is blue? That’s because of high levels of copper
    in their blood. And as weird as that is, it’s not even the
    most interesting fact! It can be used to detect bacterial contamination
    in small quantities, making it vitally important for the FDA! So how expensive is it? Try 60 grand a gallon expensive. It’s used to make a gel called LAL, which
    is used to detect bacteria. Before horseshoe crab blood, scientists had
    no easy way of knowing whether a vaccine or medical tool was contaminated with bacteria. However, drop a minuscule amount of LAL on
    a medical device or vaccine, and the LAL will encase any gram-negative bacteria in a jelly
    cocoon. While it can’t do anything to bacteria,
    it basically sets off an alarm alerting scientists to the presence of them! An estimated 600,000 Horseshoe crabs are caught
    each year and have about 30 percent of their blue blood drained. 1 – Elephant We’re pretty sure you guys aren’t surprised
    that Elephant ivory are in high demand. Demand has been consistently rising for illegal
    ivory. Poachers risk punishment in order to cash
    in on ivory for about $1,500 per pound. And a single tusk can weigh over 200 pounds
    for the largest examples. It’s estimated that poachers took out nearly
    a third of the African elephant population between 2007 and 2014. Historically, many cultures have prized ivory. It’s up there with gold in some cases. People make ornaments, jewelry and art out
    of ivory. In the US there’s already pretty much a
    complete ban on ivory. But other countries haven’t exactly followed
    suit. For example, although it’s technically illegal
    in China, ivory is still culturally valued and the black market is rampant. Politicians have promised to crack down on
    illegal trade, but we don’t think anyone is exactly holding their breath for that promise. Existing bans just aren’t enough to stop
    the poachers. Watch this next video to find out about facts
    you had no clue about rattlesnakes!

    15 Tiny Vehicles – The Next BIG Thing In Transportation

    August 17, 2019


    – [Glen] With everything in
    our lives getting bigger, phones, bills, cars, houses, let’s sit back and
    enjoy the little things. This is Glen with Mind’s Eye Design, and we’re bringing you
    15 awesome mini vehicles. (upbeat electronic music) – [Kaite] Number 15. – [Glen] The Mini 1499 GT Special Edition is a nod to the past ’71
    model of the 1275 GT. It comes with a 101 horsepower
    turbocharged engine, allowing it to hit 60 miles
    an hour in just 10 seconds. It has a top speed of 121 miles per hour. The Mini is fitted with fabric and leather-trimmed sport seats, a JCW sports steering
    wheel, upgraded stereo, and a few carbon black details. Only 1499 of these cars will be made, and all of them will be
    for sale only in the UK. The price point is as
    attractive as the car, coming in at around $23,000. – [Kaite] Number 14. This little guy will allow you to have an untold amount of fun on the water, while bringing a smile to everyone’s face. The Mini Boat, aptly named,
    is only six feet long. It’s made from precision-cut,
    marine-grade plywood. It includes internal bulkheads
    to provide flotation, even if that boat is flooded. It’s all electric, which
    means you can avoid the high price of gas on the water, and is able to reach speeds of 3.5 knots. The bare hull kits are available
    for sale for around $950, with the option to upgrade
    based on your own design. If you just want the building plans, you can get those for $95. – [Kaite] Number 13. – [Glen] Designed to be sold during the fuel crisis in the 70s, this electric mini car is
    sure to draw some attention. Not only did this electric vehicle successfully combat the fuel crisis, it became one of the
    bestselling cars in the 70s. Powered by a rechargeable 36-volt battery, which was later switched
    to a 48-volt battery, the car can travel around 40 miles before it needs to be recharged. The car was only eight feet long, so it only had enough
    room for two passengers. The old 36-volt option could travel around 30 miles per hour, while the new 48-volt option could travel to around 40 miles per hour. There are quite a few used ones up for sale for around $7,000. – [Kaite] Number 12. – [Glen] This Subaru Sambar fire truck earned the nickname Little
    Giant, Guardian of the City, when it was a first responder to the 6.7 magnitude
    earthquake in Nagano, Japan. It was able to get into
    the smaller villages, while the defense forces
    moved into the larger cities. Currently residing in Seattle, Washington, the vehicle is in pristine condition. It has a 544 cc engine,
    a fire utility bed, a 500 cc pump motor, and working lights,
    sirens, and loudspeaker. There are two seats up front, and one in the back for your fire chief. It’s currently up for auction, and estimated to sell anywhere
    from $15,000 to $45,000. – [Kaite] Number 11. – [Glen] Ever wanted a pontoon boat, but didn’t wanna deal with
    the hassle of the size, boy, have I got good news for you. Coming in 10, 12, and 14-foot options this little pontoon is
    extremely customizable. On top of the standard
    packages they offer, you can custom build your own. It has options for enclosed railings, swim ladders, boat
    covers, navigation lights, a 20-gallon live well,
    fishing pole holders, a deep cycle battery,
    a center-mounted table, an onboard battery charger,
    and up to four seats. Perfect for ponds, lagoons,
    and protected waters, the Pond-Tini is perfect
    for hunting, fishing, and all-around recreation on the water. Pricing starts out around $7,000. – [Kaite] Number 10. – [Glen] Available in a
    multitude of different models, the Mini-Max aircraft are
    all single-seat, mid-winged, strut-braced, single-engine aircraft, that are available in kit form
    for your own construction. Constructed predominantly from wood truss, with plywood gussets, and covered with doped aircraft fabric, over 2,000 of these planes have
    been constructed and flown. All of the models have a construction time from 250 to 300 hours, and have been in the air since the 80s. Team Mini-Max has kept
    their focus of providing great little aircraft
    at an affordable cost to get everyone flying. You can get your own
    kit for around $6,000. – [Kaite] Number nine. – [Glen] This roadster micro car was developed in Sydney,
    Australia, by Buckle Motors. The Dart was based off the
    chassis and mechanical components of the German Goggomobil. Roadster style with no doors, the entire car weighed only 760 pounds. It came with the option of a
    300 cc and a 400 cc engine, and had a small luggage compartment built into the nose of the car. The Dart was produced from 1959 to 1961, and around 700 of these were produced. While you won’t be able to get one new, we have seen some sell at
    auctions for around $25,000. – [Kaite] Number eight. – [Glen] The Laker 712 DLX mini pontoon has everything you need for
    your day out on the water. 12 feet long and seven feet wide, it comes standard with
    bench seating in the back, a sunshade top, removable chairs up front, four fishing pole holders,
    under-seat storage, and an electric motor
    with an onboard charger. It has all-aluminum construction, with a spray-on, non-stick decking. The pontoons are welded and bolted on, with no need for a bile pump, because the pontoons are sealed. They even offer free shipping
    if you buy your own trailer. Pricing for this starts
    out at around $10,000. – [Kaite] Number seven. – [Glen] This crazy little vehicle is the product of TNT
    Promotional Vehicles. They sacrificed two Smart
    Fortwo cars to the truck gods, and got this mashup, and it basically looks
    like the backend of one car attached to the backend of the other. Not much is known about this car except what was on their
    eBay listing for the car. TNT said it can be used as an official pace truck at motorsports events. It’s also said to be middle-wheel drive. There are no specifications
    on motor upgrades, so you could be hauling
    all that extra weight with the stock 70 horsepower motor. The listed price for this car is $16,000. – [Kaite] Number six. – [Glen] The Fiat 600 Multipla is one of the classiest mini
    vehicles we’ve ever seen. Not actually a car, this micro minivan was capable
    of seating up to six people, including the driver, with
    fold-down seats in the back. Widely used as a taxi
    in many parts of Italy, the Multipla would get you where you needed to go eventually. With a max speed of 57 miles per hour, and a zero to 50 time of 43 long seconds, people didn’t get this car for racing. It had a 633 cc engine that
    only pushed out 21 horsepower. You won’t get one new, but there are quite a
    few used ones for sale, for around $45,000. – [Kaite] Number five. – [Glen] The Exhilarator
    151 is a 15-foot powerboat. Yes, a powerboat with enough power to even pull toys behind it on the water. It has a deep V hull for cutting waves, and quick turning ability. It has two seats up front, and a fold-up bench seat in the back. It’s rated for up to
    a 60 horsepower engine to be mounted on the back. While the motor isn’t included, it does come with a five-year warranty. This speedy little boat
    is not only tons of fun, but will also create a lot
    of attention on the lake. Pricing for this start
    out at around $7,000. – [Kaite] Number four. – [Glen] The 1969 Subaru Young 360 SS was an upgraded model of
    the already-upgraded 360 S. The 360 S had already gotten
    an upgraded EK32 F engine, a four-gear transmission
    instead of the standard three, upgraded bucket seats, tachometer, and a roof dent for carrying surfboards. The 360 SS upgraded the
    car everyone further, with the EK32 engine, with chrome cylinders
    and dual carburetors. Pushing out 36 horsepower, the car’s max speed was
    around 75 miles per hour. An extremely rare find, and a desire of many car collectors, the Subaru 360 Young SS has
    been purchased at auctions for around $10,000. – [Kaite] Number three. – [Glen] Designed and
    manufactured by Suzuki, but sold by Mazda under its
    brand Autozam, we get the AZ-1, a mid-engine, rear-wheel
    drive, two-door coupe, with gull-wing doors, and a
    657 cc turbocharged engine. This thing looks like a mini supercar. The AZ-1 is only 11 feet long, and the cabin of the car is rather tight. It has a small storage area
    behind the seats for luggage, and a spare tire. The engine pushes out
    around 64 horsepower, and is limited to 87 miles per hour. In a car this small and
    low to the ground, though, 80 miles per hour is
    sure to feel like 120. These can be found for
    sale for around $12,000. – [Kaite] Number two. – [Glen] The JETSTREAM HEADWATER
    is a must-have for anyone. These all-aluminum boats
    come in kit versions for you to put together. It measures in at 10 feet
    long, and has seating for two. Because it utilizes an
    inboard pump-jet engine, it’s able to easily maneuver
    through shallow waters, but they also have enough power to move you up the river through rapids. The engine bay is set up for
    easy jet ski motor donation, and people have put engines in here that push out over 250 horsepower, so don’t let their size fool you. The complete kit gets you
    everything but the engine, with the option of customizing the color however you see fit. The complete kit costs around $2,500. – [Kaite] Number one. – [Glen] Back in the 60s Greece was one of the leaders
    in microcar production. A company named Attica created
    this three-wheeled vehicle that is still remembered to this day. It has seating for four, with a bench seat in the back of the car. Powered by a 200 cc engine, it’s clear where they got the name. It has a max speed of 60 miles per hour. The car was so small that
    it was originally taxed as a motorcycle instead of a car, because the Greek government said it was too small to be
    taxed as a real car. Easily one of the rarest
    minicars out there, only an estimated 10 are still around. Adding one of these to your car collection would make you the envy

    How to build a boat Ep #1 – Catamaran you can live on

    August 17, 2019


    This is the first of a series of videos about a catamaran I built back in the 90s. Building a boat, something big enough to live on and sail off over the horizon is a dream I had for years. My original idea was to build a monohull, in fact I bought plans for a little 21 footer that I was going to weld up and sail around the world in. The plan got postponed for a number of years and in that time I come across a couple of books that changed my ideas. It was back in the early 90’s First book was the Gougeon Brothers on boat building, all about building with epoxy and wood. And the other book was the cruising multihull by Chris White. The two of them together made sense Building a multihull, that didn’t rely on tonnes of lead to keep itself upright and building with wood, epoxy and fibreglass, all made sense to me.. I found plans I liked from a local multihull designer, Tony Grainger. I then started preparing the place to build it, in the bush on my parents property out the back of Noosa Heads. Queensland, Australia. The original shed was only big enough to build the 21ft boat that I originally planned to build. So I lengthened it with the idea of building the boat in 3 sections. 2 hulls separately and then the centre section. Which I ended up doing. Building of the hull starts with a strong back. It’s a ladder like construction that I concreted into the ground. I cut out temporary frames in chipboard. to make the cross sectional shapes of the hull. Using full size contours on mylar sheet that I laid down on the wood and traced out with a dressmakers wheel. Each temporary frame is set up on the strong back. and lined up. It’s worth spending a little extra time to get everything spot on at this stage Getting it all lined up perfect. and the contours cut out perfect. made for an absolutely fair hull. It saves you a lot of time down the track. The construction was strip plank western red cedar. Basically a wood cored fibreglass boat. My reasons for building it this way were that its a simple system for a one off boat You don’t need to build a mould before you can make it. produces a very fair hull. It’s strong, its light. The cedar strips were 14mm thick and for the majority of the boat 90mm wide. what I’d bought, machined ah, were not long enough to make up the length of the hull so they have to be scarfed together to give you the full length of the hull. I set up a jig with my brothers radial saw, to saw them all give them a feather edge for scarfing. and then set up a jig table to scarf them all together. Once they were dried then I could start screwing them on to the temporary frames. Edge gluing them as I went to start to form the shell of the hull. The edge glue was a mixture of epoxy resin & cab-o-sil which thickens it to a peanut butter consistency. probably (80 – 90%) of the work I did on my own the rest was help from family and friends Here’s my Dad giving me a hand.
