A small town in south-east Australia has become the first place in the world to ban bottled water. The people of Bundanoon, located in New South Wales have voted overwhelmingly in favor of the ban at a public meeting, with 398 out of the 400 people at the gathering wanting bottled water to be banned in the town. The community realized they needed to act when Norlex Holdings, a drinks company, unveiled plans to tap an underground reservoir in the town, transport the water to Sydney (some 150 km away) and then send it back bottled.

Your body can go to strange lengths in trying to tell you something - for example, that you’re skimping on critical vitamins. In this era of a diet in the form of processed foods it is not very difficult to become vitamin-deficient, either by not eating enough of the right foods or not absorbing them properly due to digestive issues. Deficiency of vitamins in your body may not make you sick, but you can end up with impaired functioning, because vitamins are catalysts and ingredients for all the biochemical reactions in the body. We need them in order to function properly. This impaired functioning can sometimes manifest in mysterious ways. Here are five unusual warning signs that you may be vitamin-deficient. The good news: Most are fixable with dietary measures - all the more reason to make nutrition a top priority. But if food cures don’t work, be sure to consult your doctor.

Long before the advent of the internal combustion engine, someone came up with the idea of using a wheeled vehicle to carry people to where they wanted to go in exchange for money or some other form of payment. But if you ask us, it wasn’t until the dawn of the automobile and its first use as wheels-for-hire that the taxi truly came of age. Today, motorized cabs are pretty much a part of the scenery in every major city on earth. Unfortunately, the vast majority of taxis are based on plain, unexciting vehicles possessing as much soul as a washing machine filled with soybeans. However, if you want your fare to buy some flair, there are some decidedly enticing options out there. Not convinced? Check out these 20 cool cabs and get back to us.

If James Bond went camping, this might be his rig of choice. The Sealander starts off all normal-like, being towed by your SUV along the countryside, looking for a nice little lakeside nook to settle into and listen to some Carly Simon with a bottle of Pinot Noir or something. But then, faster than you can say… well, OK, spell amphibious, the Sealander is ready for water exploration.

Some of the coolest creatures from prehistoric times lived in the sea. Giant, razor-toothed fish that could eat a great white whole made our seas and oceans look incredibly tame by comparison. Luckily though, some never left, and the waters of our planet remain as mysterious and exciting as ever.

Top 20 Driving Shoes In The World

While a person’s arms and hands are heavily involved in the process of driving a car in that they handle steering and changing gears, these upper extremities don’t deserve all the glory. After all, without legs and feet to work the gas, brake and – when applicable – clutch pedals (as well as occasionally provide bracing for the driver’s body under heavy braking or cornering loads), you’d just be able to adjust the angle of the front wheels and stir the gears in the transmission. Yes, there are modifications available for folks without usable limbs south of the equator, but the overwhelming majority of automobiles in their natural states demand operators with paws up high and down low. So it’s no surprise that since the feet are tasked with such critical tasks as telling the car to go and stop, there are literally thousands of styles of shoes on the market that profess to provide optimum comfort, maneuverability, tactile feedback (e.g. letting the driver feel the brakes starting to lock up, or the clutch approaching the verge of its bite point) for their wearers. But which articles of motoring footwear are among the elite? Find out here...

Best Getaway Vehicles For Pulling A Heist

Last week, the German Motoring program GRIP asked the very important question: What’s the best getaway car for a robbery? They only pitted 3 cars against each other, trying to escape the police, who were driving a BMW 135i. It was a good question, because a key element to any heist is the getaway vehicle. Will you need a van, or will a Mazda Miata suffice? What if the cops show up? We thought it would be more fun to show you the 10 cars we consider contenders for “Best Heist Vehicle.” And because every “job” is different, every car excels in a different way. But whether you’re stealing diamonds from a sheik in the desert or stealing gold bullion from Edward Norton, we’ve got a car to suit your criminal needs.
