It’s enough just to take a look at the photos of Jim Reed to understand his passion - the pursuit of any severe weather condition.. It takes a little more than courage to get shots like that. Each image is a mix of patience, knowledge and few extra cameras.
I’ve never seen this before. You should not be claustrophobic. And I think obese people won’t even be able to enter the door… what do I say? They won’t even be able to enter the corridor… A second picture shows you what it looks like inside the toilet after the jump.
A 4-year-old boy was standing near the store when a car driver lost control over the vehicle and was approaching the boy at high speed. It is not known exactly what happened, but the driver of the car hit the boy, sending him flying down a flight of stairs before he fell, after a few seconds he got up and ... safe and sound run off crying to his dad who didn’t know what happened until the next day. Everything happened in just few seconds. Who said that miracles don’t happen ;)
Padaung or Kayan Lahwi is a group of the Karenni people, a Tibeto-Burman ethnic minority of Burma. Women start wearing the brass neck coils at the age of five. Each coil is replaced with longer coils as the weight of the brass pushes the collar bone down and compresses the rib cage. Contrary to popular belief, the neck is not actually lengthened; the illusion of a stretched neck is created by the deformation of the clavicle. Many ideas regarding why the coils are worn have been suggested. One of them is the coils might be meant to protect from tiger bites. Kayan women, when asked, acknowledge these ideas, but often say that their purpose for wearing the rings is cultural identity (one associated with beauty).
A concert was planned on Moscow last Saturday but it had to be cancelled. Why? Well, the reason is simple. As we can clearly see on the pictures, the roof collapsed on the stage itself. So, the concert obviously was cancelled and bands such as Scorpion or Alice Cooper had to cancel too. For more photos, go inside the post.

I always admired people who can draw well. So today we will get acquainted with the remarkable work of this painter. After the jump, you’ll see some of his works, those that seemed the most interesting.

People can put strange tattoos on their bodies – they can choose different drawings, stars and even scientific tattoos. But this young girl’s gone further than anybody else. How could she only think of such thing...
Three small children don’t deserve to live in conditions like this. Their parents have turned their apartment into a real dump, there is no other word for it. And if one of their neighbors did not call the police, who knows how long would these children suffer from this. The parents were sentenced to three years, and frankly, good for them ...
Finally we got our first summer compilation of pictures sent by users ) And it’s great, there is so much to see. You know what surprised me? It took more than a MONTH to gather this collection. The last selection was published on the website on May 19. And what is interesting is that the site has more than 60,000 people every day and such a low activity. I don’t believe that you have nothing to show. Let’s be more active! Waiting for your content . Special thanks to everyone who sent material for this compilation)
After the jump, you will find a great selection of toys from the 80-90s. I think many of you will be able to find something from their childhood. If you were born later, it still is interesting to see these rare toys :)
It's been 33 years since Lesley Harrison is a professional painter. She managed to combine the love for animals with her passion for painting, which resulted in a wonderful series of animal paintings. When she drew them, the artist has not only managed to capture the spirit of each of them, but also to convey individuality, grace and strength of each animal.
