In a beautiful part of southern China there are some mountains called the Southern Sky Column Mountains which have recently been renamed to the Avatar Hallelujah Mountains after the floating mountains that were featured in the blockbuster movie Avatar. The floating Hallelujah Mountains in the movie were the inspiration of a Hollywood photographer who, in 2008, shot photos of the Southern Sky Column Mountains. Now, tourists can go on a tour to see Avatar's floating mountain and learn that they were once called the Southern Sky Mountains.
A funny illustrated guide to learn “the most feared punctuation on Earth” :))
Learning grammar has never been cooler…
If you enjoyed “WTF Retro Pictures”, we think you will enjoy these as well. Can you imagine the nerve of the people playing tennis on the wing of a flying airplane, or the hilarity of an obese man riding a mini bike? And my but didn’t the girls go wild over rock and roll stars of days gone by. How ridiculous is it to have a bear taking a picture of a little boy or one of the first flying saucers? Equally amazing are a cowboy and his horse drinking from the same pond. Ah, the good old days. It is truly amazing that mankind survived them, yet we have such fond memories of them.
Along with the Internet came numerous social websites and blogging. Now you can interact with practically anyone and along the way you are sure to run into some mighty strange folks. From people who exhibit strange body art to folks who have some very strange habits, pets, and live in weird places, to those who have strange philosophies and take pictures of themselves in every position imaginable. Welcome to the Internet where you can meet some very strange folk indeed.
That is one of the things that separate us from the animals. How else can you explain 11 year old Dayton Hennessey who is able to wrestle, successfully at that, with both arms and both legs amputated as a result of a life threatening bacterial infection? This little boy from the Virginia suburbs shows moxie and courage far beyond his years. Not only does he wrestle but he also leads a very athletic and happy life doing things like riding his scooter around his neighborhood, ice skating, or playing football. His zest for life and drive to achieve can be summed up in three words; The Human Spirit. It should be an inspiration to us all.
Artist Matthew Albanese created a “Sugarscape” out of corn syrup, jelly, and twenty pounds of sugar. Although the model may look like scene directly from Antarctica it took the artist over two months to grow the crystals in his studio. He also used such materials as paprika for his Martian landscape, cotton and many others to give this incredible illusion of something real. So if you have ever seen a landscape that you thought looked good enough to eat; now you have seen the real thing. It is truly a work of art.

Is there anything cuter than a kitten playing with a squirrel, or a baby goat? Then there is always the baby monkey sitting in the palm of your hand and the baby bird in the nest with its mother just after being hatched. One would have a difficult time choosing between these animals to determine which is the cutest.
At least it was for one wildebeest that was, quite literally, looking into the jaws of death as the jaws of a huge crocodile with its mouth agape tried its dead level beast to have the wildebeest for lunch as was crossing a river that was crocodile infested. It appeared that the juvenile wildebeest was about to be eaten for lunch. However, as so often is the case, timing is everything. Fortunately for this young wildebeest, the crocodile misjudged its attack by a mere fraction a second.
The amount of abstract art can be obtained from the frozen Mississippi river is truly amazing. There are sheets of frozen water as clear as any window and chunks of ice in every shape imaginable. A frozen river can provide years of inspiration to sculptors and artists alike. A frozen river is beautiful is a beautiful sight to behold whether up close and personal or from afar. Mother Nature can be truly inspiring.
Little boys will have uncanny ability to make toys to play with out of just about anything that is available to them. From imaginary headphones made from strands of wire to scooters made from scraps of old wood with carved wheels to airplanes made from coat hangers and cardboard, boys always manage to figure out a way to make something to play with. It is truly a credit to the human spirit and the science of engineering that boys will always have toys.

CNN reporters made panoramic photos of Haiti, so you can always pause and then click on the screen to look around.
Nice touch :)
That old adage seems to be true as does the one that says that there is someone for everyone. So what difference does size or weight make anyway? Much the same as age difference, it would appear not much. If two people are happy together why should physical characteristic or chronological differences make in a relationship. It is all about what one person sees in another, not about what the rest of see in them. All that really matters is what makes them happy. In fact, if they are happy we should be happy for them, right?
One would think that it would only take some dynamite to bring a standing bridge down, however that is not the case. It would appear that it takes a good many man hours to destroy a bridge, especially if the bridge was made in China almost entirely from trash in the first place. Much of the trash that was used to construct the bridge must be removed by hand. It probably takes half as much work to destruct a bridge as it does to construct one. Thus, what starts out as trash ends up as trash. It turns out to be a good way to recycle.
Wives can be rather funny at times. Especially when the husband least expects it. Who would think that a simple lunch note left on the fridge could bring such happiness to a hungry man who has come home from the office for lunch. With titles like “On top of your pizza” and “Dear salad” the recipients of these notes must have had a good laugh. So ladies, if you want to bring a little humor to your man’s life, try leaving him a funny lunch note on the fridge. If you believe in one good turn doing another, he may just repay the favor that evening. At the very least, he will be in a good mood…
Although many people don’t realize it, a person stands to lose a lot more than just what‘s in the bet when they gamble. Gambling is an addiction just as serious as drugs or alcohol. People have gotten themselves so far in debt that they have committed suicide over their losses. Even if you don’t take your own life, lose to the wrong person or crowd and someone else may take it for you. So if you gamble, be careful and never bet more than you can comfortably afford to lose. Your very life may depend on it.
If you wondered Why It’s Better Not to Celebrate the New Year in China (22 pics), you are really going to be amazed at the goings on during the Chinese Festival. With the population in China it is amazing that these people ever get anywhere. Not only do they not have private transportation, for which there are insufficient roads anyway, but there public transportation systems are absolutely packed beyond belief. People are stacked like cordwood everywhere and there is absolutely no where you can go and be alone.
You would be hard pressed to convince some people that global warming really exists. Sure there’s that old scientific evidence that the glaciers are melting and our seas are rising. But does that kind of evidence stand up to the millions of people who live in climates that are nearly sub freezing year around? No wonder there is such skepticism. Just how does one go about rationalizing the inch or so of water that has risen in the Atlantic Ocean over the last few decades to the fact that their car won’t start on a frozen morning after receiving three feet of snow the night before?
Many furniture designers have come up with some rather unusual designs for a table in the past. However, there has never been one designed to be a resting spot for the family cat; until now that is. With its glass top and hammock as a lounging place for “Garfield”, it has to be one of a kind.
