Manshiet Nasser is a strange community in Cairo, Egypt. People call this place The City of Garbage because tons of trash come here from all over the capital of Egypt. The most unusual thing about this place is that people actually live here. Another strange thing about Manshiet Nasser is that local residents, the Zabbaleen, including women and kids dig through the garbage looking for something to resell. About 80 per cent of this trash is recycled and resold later on.

Cairo is not the only city on earth where such a model of Manshiet Nasser exists. It is already copied by communities in Los Angeles, Bombay and Manila.

This is what is left of Gagra, a resort city on the Black Sea coast.

With its climate close to subtropical, Gagra was a popular health resort in Imperial and Soviet Russia among Russian elite. It was a paradise with its pleasant climate, a royal palace and a number of buildings in an eclectic variety of styles from around Europe. The park that surrounded the resort was also very popular with tropical trees and even parrots and monkeys imported to give it an exotic feel.

But the war between Abkhazia (political entity within Georgia which status is disputed) and Georgia in 1992-1993 deserted the place making it all ruins and a ghost town.

In childhood many of us dream to live in a fairy tale house. But only a few of us implement these dreams into reality and build amazing houses that seem to come alive from a fantastic world of books and movies. All these houses are real and they reproduce famous fairy tales and cartoons. I think it would be amazing to live in such a house.

The amazing photos were taken by Dr. Vaggelis Fragiadakis who is an amateur photographer, who was originally from Greece. The people in the black and white photos are mainly down on their luck. You can practically tell their life story by looking at their wrinkled faces.

The photos in this post are of some wonderfully real wall art. People actually painted this beautiful art on the walls of existing buildings. It took some real artistic talent to make paintings this large look this good.

Give up Robot - Wake up, Robot! It's time to DANCEEEEEE... Jump, grapple, and swing your way through 50 levels of puzzle-platforming disco insanity. Your only enemies are the clock and the disembodied robot voice that will celebrate your failure and curse your success. Show it who's boss through Normal mode, then tackle Hard mode's 11 punishing levels if you've got any hair left (it'll surely take care of that). Left/Right arrow – Move. X, S, or Up arrow – Jump. Z or A - Fire your grappling hook. Release to let go. After firing your grappling hook, the Up and Down arrows adjust your height, the Left and Right arrows adjust your swing. To pause the game, click outside the game window. Click inside the window to un-pause.
