In fact, the Kopp-Etchells effect is a new name. It was named after two soldiers who died in Afghanistan in July 2009. The Kopp-Etchells effect is a result of dust striking helicopter blades as they take off or land at night, causing a bright 'halo' effect around the spinning rotor disk. So, if it happens at night, you can watch an amazing show. Take a look at pictures.
A funny story happened in China. Residents of one village were against a construction in a nearby canyon. When construction machinery arrived there, one of the villagers left his car at the top of the canyon to protest. That did not stop the construction team. Guys razed everything to the ground, except the place where the villager left his car and now he’s thinking how to get it out from there.

Surprisingly enough, but this green ceiling is made from ... 1,600,000 jewel beetles. It is situated in the Royal Palace in Brussels and called Heaven Of Delight. The ceiling was created by the Flemish artist Jan Fabre, previously known for his works from blood, semen and insects. Thirty people assisted him and it took four months to glue all the bugs. It’s a horror, of course. But it’s called art anyway.
Here's a very "fun" one-room apartment for rent in the center of Moscow. And the rent cost is 1,250 bucks a month. It is also pointed out that the apartment underwent renovation works, though after viewing the photos it is hard to believe in. And what’s with the fur??? I would never rent this apartment, especially for the sum they ask for it.
Everybody knows the story of the Loch Ness Monster, a creature said to live in the waters of the Loch Ness lake, located in Scottish Islands. Everybody knows it but only few people claimed they saw it for real during the 20h century. Most of the “evidences” are not convincing and could show lots of stuff different that the famous monster and most important, lots of pictures were revealed as hoaxes like the most famous one taken by Robert Kenneth Wilson (a London gynaecologist) in 1934. Even if for most of the people it’s just a myth, some people live along the lake in hope to see and photograph Nessie and each year, though we can’t see it, the mysterious creature is the center of attention of countless tourists. We’re in 2009 and the question about the existence of the monster is up again because of an Internet user that claimed he saw Nessie on Google Earth. To me, it’s nothing but a boat but for some, it’s already another proof of the real existence of the creature…
Lets start with pics taken during the last century until today:
After seeing these photos I have only one question. Why? The situations can be different though. A man bought a dishwasher, but didn’t have enough money for a stove, for example And to prepare fish like this is quite simple - take a salmon, some vegetables and sauce. Wrap all ingredients in a foil and put it in the dishwasher. Then you turn on the machine and your fish is steamed. For some reason I think that it would taste horrible, but maybe I'm wrong.
The official American government site posted guides in order to show people how they can be ready in case of biological, nuclear threats or different natural disasters. The funny thing is that the pictures in these guides are very ambiguous and can be interpreted differently without a proper explanation. That is what the guys from safenow were trying to show us
If you have set yourself on fire, do not run.
If you spot terrorism, blow your anti-terrorism whistle. If you are Vin Diesel, yell really loud.
Well, you know, the one where you pretend playing the invisible guitar and everyone is cheering you up and screaming as if you were one of the best guitar players in the history. Well, it must be fun, especially as it becomes more and more popular.
Another good series of photo manipulation. This time, the idea was to make people, things or places look gigantic or miniature in comparison to the other elements in a photo, the whole process with exaggeration of course. Some are really original and well found! Just take a look…
These photos were taken in a hotel in one provincial town of Russia. At first glance, nothing suspicious to be noticed. But if you go to the bathroom, then you fully understand the meaning of the word ‘awful’. Room cost - $ 40 per day. How do you like it?
