A New Zealand couple wanted to name their son’s name unique and went all the way to add a digit as the “first letter” in the name. They were seeking to name their newborn son “4real” but the government registry rejected their proposal.
Pat and Sheena Wheaton say they will get around the decision by the Registrar of Births, Deaths and Marriages by officially naming their son Superman but referring to him as 4Real, the New Zealand Herald newspaper has reported.
The Wheatons decided on the name after seeing the baby for the first time in an ultrasound scan and realizing their baby was “for real.” They decided 4Real was the best way to write it, but the name was rejected because the registrar said a name had to be a sequence of characters.
The baby is now two months old, after the Wheatons first applied to register his name in later June.
Well, “4. Wheaton” wouldn’t look like a name, does it? And what about the grammar we are taught in the school? Aren’t the first letters in name be capitalized?
Now they are going to call him Superman. That is still cool. I bet they won’t find another kid in the neighborhood with the name Superman. (news source)
5,000 beer cans and skilled hands made a recycled replica of Ford Mustang 1965.
Like all good students Jack Kirby collected his beers cans. Unlike most good students the art and design student actually found a use for them.
When he realised Budweiser was giving away his dream car, a 1965 Ford Mustang, he spent a month crafting this recycled replica. Kirby said: â€œI love Mustangs, and when I heard that Budweiser was putting one up for auction I didn’t want to miss out. I’ve got everything crossed that I win but if I don’t I have the next best thing – an exact replica built from Budweiser cans!” (source)
