The Sudd Swamp (3 pics)

Posted in PICTURES       15 Nov 2010       21781

The Sudd, is a vast swamp in southern Sudan, formed by the White Nile.

Its size is highly variable, averaging over 30,000 square kilometers. During the wet season it may extend to over 130,000 km².

The sunlight and water contribute to the proliferation of plants that have no roots and float on the surface, forming a sort of a live carpet. Eventually plants become larger, thicker which with time creates a dense floating plant life of the swamp. Apparently, it is so strong that it can hold the weight of large animals.

These are the best advertisements on buildings. They are very clever and ingenious. The advertisement illustrates their slogan if they have one. They certainly make their point and do the product a real service.

Where Russian Oligarchs Live (27 pics)

Posted in PICTURES       15 Nov 2010       12472

This luxurious Russian mansion is located in a small village near Moscow. It is owned by Vladimir Bryntsalov who owns one of the major pharmaceutical companies in Moscow. It is very stately and obviously worth a lot of money. It also seems that the more money they have, the more tasteless they are…

Elephant vs Crocodile (4 pics)

For a crocodile, it’s easy to attack an elephant when they have such long trunks.

Apparently, the mother was protecting her baby from a crocodile.

It feels like it is a common practice for crocodiles to attack baby elephants

How The Biggest Ships Were Built (36 pics)

Posted in PICTURES       15 Nov 2010       17432

The Batillus class supertankers are the largest vessels by gross tonnage ever built. There were 4 of them, each at 555,000 metric tons DWT, constructed by France in the 1970s. A gross tonnage of Batillus is 275,276 tons. Still, if considering fully-loaded displacement, the Batillus ships don’t hold the world’s record. They are edged out by the Seawise Giant ship that serves as an oil tanker. Still, the Batillus class ships are records for tankers (with the depth of 36 meters and full load draft of 28.5 meters), and, inside this post, you can see how these largest ships were built.

What seems innocent and acceptable imagery back then is now considered repulsive and disturbing now.

Not only did she come out with a huge summer hit, but she also came out with absolutely colossal cleavage. And if these boobalicious photos don’t prove that she’s the hottest babe around, than just consider the fact that she loves to show off

A Tower Crushes Surrounding Buildings in Ohio (13 pics + 1 video)

Posted in PICTURES       12 Nov 2010       9227

The former Ohio Edison Mad River Power Plant's smoke stake that was 275 feet tall fell the wrong way and crushed the surrounding buildings during the demolition process. The tower also knocked down two power lines and caused the power loss in the city for two hours. It all happened because the demolition company didn’t detect a crack on one side of the tower. Luckily, no one was hurt because of this mistake.

Art of Kinetik studio produces bespoke luxury wooden yachts. Its latest creation is Hedonist yacht, which combines levels of refinement and comfort with daring looks and matchless performance. This 63 foot yacht has a solid mahogany hull and it delivers an unusually smooth ride even at the top speed of 40 knots. No screws are visible at any point and nor is any plastic. It seems that Art of Kinetik has a great team of engineers, designers, naval architects and craftsmen.
