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.

It seems that people will never learn that driving drunk is not that a good idea.
The driver of this truck was drunk and run over a Mercedes with a couple in it. But not only they survived, they only got a few bruises.
Just how does one sister manage to get so tan while the other is so white? Do they run in completely separate social circles? Perhaps Justine doesn’t have a job and can’t afford the dues at the tanning booth. Maybe they are exact opposites and Justine’s sister likes the outdoors while Justine is an indoor girl. Perhaps it is a fake tan and Justine feels it is unethical to wear something fake. In any event it seems to be another mystery in life that may go on forever and will never be answered. Does it really matter? They are both beautiful girls, tan or not.
At approximately 6:30 on bright and sunny morning, adrenaline junkie Jonathan Trappe attached 55 balloons filled with helium to a steel cased office chair and soared to nearly 15,000 feet. It became his dream to break free from his desk and take to the skies after watching the movie UP. He managed to reach a height of some 14,783 feet while sitting in an office chair. He had to obtain an FAA license to fly helium balloons. Mr. Trappe rose in the sky at a rate of 521 feet per minute. Now, after the flight he still sits in the same chair at work. And you thought you had big cojones.
Recently we have posted an entry: Dance for the Prince (6 pics), with colorful dancers, performing for the Prince their traditional Maori battle dance - Haka.
Naturally, photoshoppeurs could not pass by these vivid characters and made the cool photomontage you'll see after the jump.
Explanations and more photos await you after the jump..
The Sky Bridge is located in the Langkawi archipelago in Malaysia. It is a cable-stayed bridge that rises 700 meters above sea level and spans over 125 meters in length and 1,8 meters in width. It is supported by only one support column.
The bridge offers an amazing view over the island.
- Cyril Raffaelli: We need evidence..
- David Belle: Look what I have..
See more after the jump… ))
These are little copies of real weapons. Looking very good :)
You have already watched the video about this cute couple: Lion and Man Embrace and Kiss!.
And now you have the opportunity to see the photos. If you missed the video, take time to watch it, a really funny couple ;)
Only ‘big bills’ from different countries. Some are rather unique!
The ice covers 10 percent of the surface of the Earth and plays a key role in the entire ecosystem of the planet.
It exists on all continents except Australia.
Photos presented below were taken from satellites and show a surprising beauty of the kingdom of ice.

If you haven’t seen our previous post about the girl showing off her tongue on each photo, then take a look at it.
This time it’s pretty much the same but with a guy and not a pretty girl..
It’s even more ridiculous!
In January, the Day of St. Anthony is traditionally celebrated in Italy. A spectacular show - jumping over the fire on a horse - is arranged in honor of this holiday.
It's really very beautiful, take a look.
