A Floating Instrument Platform (FLIP) ship is a floating instrument platform and manned research vessel that is 355 feet long. The FLIP has been widely used to study the acoustics of whales and other marine mammals, the effects of seismic waves on the water, and heat exchange between the atmosphere and the ocean. It works by being towed out to sea and having one end submerged. The instruments and crew are located in a portion of the ship that remains above the surface of the ocean. This giant ship is most impressive.
It is absolutely amazing how cats are able to get themselves in so much trouble. If there weren’t photos to prove it no one would believe such a thing. However, as these photos show, cats manage to get themselves in some unbelievable predicaments. While it is possible to stage a photo of a cat in a most comprising situation, these photos prove that you never know what kind of trouble your cat can get into if left to their own devices.
It offers a hostess on duty 24/7, a Jacuzzi, a sauna, a Blu ray DVD player, as many as three flat screen TVs and, above all, a comfortable room all to yourself. These luxury accommodations that have all the accoutrements of a luxury hotel are provided courtesy of a Cold War era East German airplane that has been turned into a hotel which is located at Teuge Airport, Netherlands. It is truly a unique airplane which will cost you a pretty penny should you decide you want to stay in a plane that stays grounded outside the airport.
It seems that as the world economy turns sour, the workers who do have jobs are working even harder. These photos depict the worker doing just that. Some of the jobs seem unbelievable to many of us. Some are more dangerous, others are routine and even boring. Nevertheless, the human worker is truly an amazing being that exemplifies the old adage that when the going gets tough, the tough get going.

Seagulls are amazing thieves. Seagulls have been known to attack people for their ice cream cones. Not only are they extremely successful at it but they will also steal anything that doesn’t move and some things that do. The photo proves that. After plucking a Puffin fish from the water the seagull gets attacked by other seagulls who want the fish. His rivals manage to distract the first Seagull enough so that the Puffin fish is simply dropped to the ground. Sometimes there just is no justice.
There can be no doubt that in winter there are numerous sights that absolutely amaze us and are quite beautiful.

Many of us have taken a picture that we thought was a routine shot for the family album only to find out after it was developed that in the background of the shot was something that was uproariously funny. That is exactly what happened to many of the folks in these photos. Either that or they were lucky enough to witness something hilarious and just happened to have a camera handy to snap a picture. It doesn’t matter that these photos are only photomontages/fake, they are still uproariously funny. They kind of make you want to go “Oops!”
Fashion can be many things, beautiful, skimpy, dressy, over the top, but edible? Well that is certainly the case with the fashion statements made by the women in these photos. Every inch of the outfits worn by these women is edible chocolate. Whether made by poured chocolate or the results of hundreds of candy bars, all of these outfits are edible chocolate. This makes the fashions in these photos as delectable and scrumptious as the ladies who wear them.
How does that saying go “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure”? That is certainly the case in these photographs taken in Melbourne, Australia and can be seen from the Geelong Train line. While some people see the artwork as graffiti others see it as art. Some folk want it removed and others want it to stay. This brings up another old saying; “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder”. Where do you come down on this debate?
