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?
When a snake attacks a mouse or rat, everyone knows the outcome - the rodent dies. But there are brave rats who know that this is the end for them and they try to take their enemy into the grave too. That is what happened. The rat tricked the snake and made it follow it into a utility pole – the rat died but the snake was also electrocuted.
The more I come across the articles about Russians the more I am convinced that they have souls of artisans, it’s in their blood. Here is a Russian who has built a small railroad to move around on his land behind his house. For him it's the best way to move on his land. Well I say, why not ))
Memorial Day - a day for remembering the men and women of our armed services who died while at war. Memorial Day weekend has also become the unofficial kickoff to Summer, complete with backyard barbecues, parades and family getaways. Collected here are a handful of photographs for remembrance, acknowledging some of the men and women who have passed in conflicts from the U.S. Civil War through Iraq and Afghanistan today.
This is my favorite kind of posts. I love all that is creative. Especially with simple things when we think that everything has been invented, there are always people to reinvent the good old things in a very creative way. Several month ago I made a little selection of creative business cards, so, you’ll probably recognize some cards that you may have already seen but I put them into this collection in order to make 100 )
This incident happened in Guangzhou, China. A man threatening to commit suicide by jumping from a bridge was pushed by passer-by! Lai Jiansheng, 66, said he was fed up with the desperate man's "selfish activity" which caused huge traffic jams, so he pushed the guy over the edge. Chen Fuchao fell 26ft (8m) on to an air cushion and is recovering in hospital, the official Xinhua news agency said. Xinhua said Mr Lai was "taken away by police", but gave no further details.
Meet Paul "PJ" James - personal fitness trainer and an Australian model. To put himself into the shoes of those of his clients who are heavy, he decided to do an incredible thing. Having a bacon and chocolate milk diet, Paul got 40 kg of an extra weight. He wants to cheer these guys up and pass the message that it is possible to lose weight. As soon as he reaches his goal - 120 kg, he will do exercises to get in shape. That's the way he was before. And inside the post you will see him with extra 40 kg
It seems that the fossil, dubbed Ida or Darwinius, was found in Germany in 1983 but the claims that this might be the human anscestor was officially revealed on May 21 2009. The fossil is placed within the primate family tree along with other fossil primates. Ida was originally thought to be a primitive lemur, but comparative tests revealed her to have anthropoid features. This indicates that she is a transitional fossil between primitive lemur-like primates and the monkeys, including the human lineage. Dr Jørn Hurum, the Norwegian vertebrate paleontologist from Oslo, said: “This fossil rewrites our understanding of the evolution of primates... It will probably be pictured in all the textbooks for the next 100 years," and compared its importance to the Mona Lisa”. And you, do you believe in this?
