Gloucestershire Cheese Rolling is an annual event held in England. Traditionally, only local villagers participated in it. Now the event became international. The tradition is at least 200 years old. A round of Double Gloucester cheese is rolled from the top of the hill, and contenders run down the hill and try to catch it. But as the cheese is rolled one second before they start to race, it gains speed up to 70mph (112 km/h). A large number of participants are injured every year.
I want to show you how Indonesian miners who extract sulfur are working at the Ijen volcano in East Java. They have to work in inhuman conditions and it is extremely dangerous to health. But what else can they do, there’s no other work in the region...
A crazy idea became a reality. One Chinese invented the bicycle with the wheels in the shape of pentagon and triangle. It is more difficult to ride it than a regular bicycle, it takes more efforts. On the other hand, it allows you to burn more calories)))
Two groups of African penguins were released into the ocean. They were contaminated in an oil spill near the coast of Namibia on April 8. After they were treated, the Southern African Foundation for the Conservation of Coastal Birds released them into the wild. The first group of 84 penguins was released on May 21, and the second one of 38 birds – five days later. But I had the impression that they weren’t so willing to go there by themselves ))
It is simple, the important thing is to arrive at the People's Park, located in Shanghai. Then read the classified ads for meetings written by hand and choose a candidate that suits you, then, you call that person and then, well, good luck as they say. That’s what it means to live without internet ...
That’s what can happen if you leave your car in front of your house in Russia. You won’t recognize your car and you will find some of its body parts somewhere on a local car market. It seems, that your car can be “stripped” like this just in few minutes. So, if you’re planning to go to Russia by your car, think twice ;))

Among the main sights of Dubai, there’s not only the luxury dream-hotel Burj Al Arab, but also the Dubai International Airport. As for me, this is the most chic airport in the world where a great number of services is available. Look at the pictures.
It’s not a secret that Russians like shiny, bling bling things, if they can afford it, and most of all, they like to show it off. Here’s you are seeing a Porsche 911 covered with almost 40 pounds of pure gold. But…it is golden leaves that were used instead which is less expensive. Anyways, the result is impressive.
Do you want to get a "house on wheels” with exclusive design? This is not a problem, "Mehrzeller" will help you with this. I just took their description, because I won’t explain better how all of this is happening :) “Using the online Configurator, every user sets up a design that is unique, their own layout that they can identify with. The configuration is generated by a computer using the customers inputs, and then the final design is done by parameters from the architects to yield an attractive and practicable result. The caravans are produced using the principles of “mass customization”: this allows both the individual wishes of the customer to be accommodated while producing the caravan with series methods”. I would like to try out this Configurator and see if it really works this good ;)
Before yesterday I showed you the conditions in which children go to school in a remote village in China, but now let's look at how people live in one small Chinese village... I don’t even know if there were any other villagers apart from this old lady ...
Excellent series of photos that illustrate the danger of fire. The first photo was taken when the house started to burn, and the last one shows when there’s almost nothing left. The building was burning for around 40 minutes.
Scientists made a little test for a rook. They put in front of him a glass tube with a little basket inside filled with worms. Of course, it’s impossible to extract them with his beak. But the bird found a way to get them out of there. Look how.
We posted a lot of compilations with a variety of tattoos, but I see for the first time tattoos like this. And frankly, I wonder why do they do it? Maybe because of great love towards science? Or may be some of them needed crib notes to pass chemistry
Simon Shubert is a German artist and sculptor. What you see here are the amazing works made just from folding paper. All the lines that you see are folds and not rubbings as some of you may think. I’m truly amazed with how well he could fold corners. Respect!
Jerboas are small jumping desert rodents found throughout Asia and northern Africa. This is a miracle of nature. Inside, you will see a compilation of funny pictures with this animal and two very cool videos. On the first video, you’ll see one of the representatives of pygmy jerboa, a unique species of jerboas. .
The North Yungas Road is a 61 to 69 km road leading from La Paz to Coroico, 56 km (35 miles) northeast of La Paz in the Yungas region of Bolivia. It is legendary for its extreme danger and in 1995 the Inter-American Development Bank christened it as the "world's most dangerous road". One estimate is that 200-300 travelers were killed yearly along the road. The road includes crosses marking many of the spots where such vehicles have fallen. Would you take the risk to go there?
